Video Software we use: https://amzn.to/2KpdCQF Ad-free videos. You can support us by purchasing something through our Amazon-Url, thanks :) The General Mining Act of 1872 is a United States federal law that authorizes and governs prospecting and mining for economic minerals, such as gold, platinum, and silver, on federal public lands.This law, approved on May 10, 1872, codified the informal system of acquiring and protecting mining claims on public land, formed by prospectors in California and Nevada from the late 1840s through the 1860s, such as during the California Gold Rush.All citizens of the United States of America 18 years or older have the right under the 1872 mining law to locate a lode or placer mining claim on federal lands open to mineral entry.These claims may be located once a discovery of a locatable mineral is made. ---Image-Copyright-and-Permission--- About the author(s): U.S. Government License: Public domain ---Image-Copyright-and-Permission--- This channel is dedicated to make Wikipedia, one of the biggest knowledge databases in the world available to people with limited vision.

Public domain film from the Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The film was silent. I have added music created by myself using the Reaper Digital Audio Workstation and the Independence and Proteus VX VST instrument plugins. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal and oil shale, gemstones, limestone, and dimension stone, rock salt and potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. The nature of mining processes creates a potential negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine is closed. This impact has led to most of the world's nations adopting regulations to moderate the negative effects of mining operations. Safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have improved safety in mines significantly... Mining in the United States became prevalent in the 19th century, and the General Mining Act of 1872 was passed to encourage mining of federal lands. As with the California Gold Rush in the mid 19th century, mining for minerals and precious metals, along with ranching, was a driving factor in the Westward Expansion to the Pacific coast. With the exploration of the West, mining camps were established and "expressed a distinctive spirit, an enduring legacy to the new nation;" Gold Rushers would experience the same problems as the Land Rushers of the transient West that preceded them. Aided by railroads, many traveled West for work opportunities in mining. Western cities such as Denver and Sacramento originated as mining towns. As new areas were explored, it was usually the gold (placer and then load) and then silver that were taken first, with other metals often waiting for railroads or canals. Coarse gold dust and nuggets do not require smelting, is easy to identify and is easily transported. Modern period In the early 20th century, the gold and silver rush to the western United States also stimulated mining for base metals such as copper, lead, and iron as well as coal. Areas in modern Montana, Utah, Arizona, and later Alaska became predominate suppliers of copper to the world, which was increasingly demanding copper for electrical and households goods. Canada's mining industry grew more slowly than the United States due to limitations in transportation, capital, and U.S. competition; Ontario was the major producer of the early 20th century with nickel, copper, and gold. Meanwhile, Australia experienced the Australian gold rushes and by the 1850s was producing 40% of the world's gold, followed by the establishment of large mines such as the Mount Morgan Mine, which ran for nearly a hundred years, Broken Hill ore deposit (one of the largest zinc-lead ore deposits), and iron ore mines at Iron Knob. After declines in production, another boom in mining occurred in the 1960s and in the 21st century Australia remains a major world mineral producer. Into the 21st century, a globalized mining industry of large multinational corporations has arisen. Peak minerals and environmental impacts have also become a concern. Different elements, particularly rare earth minerals, have begun to increase in demand as a result of new technologies...

Yakutat Forelands are not for sale
 
03:28
Yakutat, Alaska is located in the northern part of the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska. This is a land of majestic mountains, old-growth forests, sandy beaches, and pristine habitat for five species of wild salmon. Our community has depended upon salmon since time immemorial and continue to do so today. In 2008 and 2009, a junior mining company staked a massive area of mineral claims in the Yakutat Forelands- rich salmon spawning habitat. Our community opposed any mining development in this area because of the adverse negative impacts mining would have on the salmon. In late 2010, the mineral claims were forfeited by the BLM due to a lack of payments on the annual maintenance fees. So the area currently has no more mineral claims. However, the area is still open to mineral entry and another company (or possibly the same) could come back at a future date. Until the antiquated General Mining Law of 1872 is reformed, our community will continue to fight to ensure that our traditional resources that our cultural identity and livelihoods depend on are protected. This video was originally a class project but I edited it slightly so it's suitable for a broader audience. This is my first attempt at a video so hopefully any future attempts run a bit more smoothly! For more info, follow my blog at: http://aandeiyeen.wordpress.com

Lecture 3. Reconstruction
 
48:55
American History: From Emancipation to the Present (AFAM 162) Between 1865 and 1877, several plans were developed by which the Confederate states could be readmitted to the Union and the residents of the states given full citizenship rights. It was far from clear, however, which plan would do a better job maintaining the social peace and protecting African Americans' ability to earn a wage, raise a family, own land, and exercise the right to vote. In this lecture, Professor Holloway outlines the contours of the Ten Percent Plan, Presidential Reconstruction, and Radical Reconstruction, and he explains how these plans embraced a variety of approaches to reuniting the disparate states. As Professor Holloway explains, Reconstruction greatly enhanced the rights of African Americans, while also circumscribing their lives by new political, economic, and social initiatives.

Summitville Mine Disaster
 
13:07
High in the Colorado San Juan Mountains, the Summitville Mine was operated by Canadian mining company Galactic Resources as a cyanide heap leach mine from 1986 until abandoned in 1992. Acid mine drainage resulted in continuous contamination of water used by downstream neighbors, including farmers, ranchers, fishermen and wildlife. Named a Superfund site in 1994, the Summitville Mine killed off 17 miles of the Alamosa River, requiring permanent water treatment at the river's headwaters. Dr. Colin Henderson led San Luis Valley neighbors to form the Alliance for Responsible Mining. Their ten-year saga of efforts to prevent future Summitville Mine disasters relates the David vs. Goliath effort of communities against industries that wield unlimited power to preempt democracy and efforts by people at the level of local government to protect their health, safety, water and environment.
