Contribute to the Project: http://igeo.tv/contribuye-al-proyecto/ The Bingham Canyon Mine, also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine, is an open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mine is owned by Rio Tinto Group, an international mining and exploration company headquartered in the United Kingdom. The copper operations at Bingham Canyon Mine are managed through Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation which operates the mine, a concentrator plant, a smelter, and a refinery. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (0.97 km) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 under the name Bingham Canyon Open Pit Copper Mine. The mine experienced a massive landslide in April of 2013 and a smaller slide in September of 2013. Udachnaya was discovered on June 15, 1955, just two days after the discovery of the diamond pipe Mir by Soviet geologist Vladimir Shchukin and his team. It is more than 600 metres (1,970 ft) deep, making it the third deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine and Chuquicamata). The nearby settlement of Udachny is named for the deposit. As of 2010, Udachnaya pipe is controlled by Russian diamond company Alrosa, which planned to halt open-pit mining in favor of underground mining in 2010. The mine has estimated reserves of 225.8 million carats of diamonds and an annual production capacity of 10.4 million carats Chuquicamata, or "Chuqui" as it is more familiarly known, is by excavated volume the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, just outside of Calama, 215 km northeast of Antofagasta and 1,240 km north of the capital, Santiago. The mine is owned and operated by Codelco, a Chilean state enterprise, since the Chilean nationalization of copper in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its depth of 850 metres (2,790 ft) makes it the second deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine in Utah, USA). The Diavik Diamond Mine is a diamond mine in the North Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada, about 300 kilometres (190 mi) north of Yellowknife. It has become an important part of the regional economy, employing 700, grossing C$100 million in sales, and producing approximately 7.5 million carats (1,500 kg (3,300 lb)) of diamonds annually.[2] The area was surveyed in 1992 and construction began in 2001, with production commencing in January 2003. It is connected by an ice road and Diavik Airport with a 5,235 ft (1,596 m) gravel runway regularly accommodating Boeing 737 jet aircraft. The Grasberg Mine is the largest gold mine and the third largest copper mine in the world. It is located in the province of Papua in Indonesia near Puncak Jaya, the highest mountain in Papua, and it has 19,500 employees. It is majority owned through a subsidiary by Freeport-McMoRan, which owns 90.64% of PT Freeport Indonesia, the principal operating subsidiary in Indonesia, including 9.36% owned through its wholly owned subsidiary, PT Indocopper Investama. The Government of Indonesia owns the remaining 9.36% of PT Freeport Indonesia. FCX operates under an agreement with the Government of Indonesia, which allows Freeport to conduct exploration, mining and production activities in a 24,700-acre area (Block A). It also conducts exploration activities in an approximate 500,000-acre area (Block B). All of Freeport's proven and probable mineral reserves and current mining operations are located in Block A. The 2006 production was 610,800 tonnes of copper; 58,474,392 grams of gold; and 174,458,971 grams of silver.

Diavik Diamond Mine This diamond mine, located in Canada’s remote Northwest Territories is actually a pretty recent hole! Work only began on this thing in 2003, and it is one of the world’s preeminent sources of gem diamonds. Since mining operations began, it has produced over 100 million carats of diamonds!! 6. Berkeley Pit Located in Butte, Montana, this copper mine is now filled with heavily acidic water. Opened in 1955, this mine was used to get copper out of the Earth. Ironically it closed on Earth day in 1982. In the 80’s Berkeley Pit was 1700 feet deep and 900 feet wide. Approximately 320 million tons of ore and over 700 million tons of waste rock were mined from the pit. 5. Mir Mine This is a diamond mine, and one of the largest excavations in history. This mine in Russia is the 2nd largest man made hole in the world. Located in outside of Mirny, a small town in Eastern Siberia, this place is 1,722 feet (525 meters) deep, and 3,900 feet (1.25 kilometers) across. 4. IceCube Neutrino Observatory There are many different ways to make holes in the Earth as you know, or will soon learn. But for the University of Wisconsin, they wanted to do a study of the Earth from a different perspective. They decided to go to Antarctica and drill a massive hole into the very ice caps of the Earth to see what's down there. Thus, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory was made. 3. Kimberley Diamond Mine Also known as the Big Hole, the Kimberly diamond mine in South Africa, is home to the world’s largest diamond mine! It is so large it is visible by space and has produced some of the world’s largest diamonds. 2. Bingham County Mine Also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine in Utah, this mine definitely takes the cake. This copper mine has been in use for over a century, and it's still open to this day. It's the biggest copper mine in the world and provides about 25% of the country’s copper needs. 1. Kola Superdeep Borehole Have you ever wondered what's at the center of the Earth?

Louisville Mega Cavern Underneath all ten lanes of the Watterson Expressway and parts of the local zoo in Louisville, Kentucky, there’s a 100-acre former limestone mine known as the Louisville Mega Cavern. It’s classified as a building because of its support structures, and is therefore technically the largest building in the state of Kentucky. 7. Salina Turda Amusement Park The Salina Turda amusement park in Romania is located within one of the world’s oldest salt mines, which dates back to the 17th century. Between then and 1932, when the mine officially closed, over three billion tons of salt were mined from this site underneath Turda, Transylvania, which lies 400 feet below the ground’s surface. 6. Subtropolis Business Park In 2014, this $60 million data center was opened in a former underground limestone mine in Kansas City, Missouri. It was developed by Lamar Hunt, the late owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, in collaboration with Hunt Midwest Real Estate Development. 5. Wieliczka Salt Mine and Health Resort The 800-year-old Wieliczka Salt Mine is located in southern Poland in the town of Wieliczka, which is part of the Krakow metropolitan area. The mine was excavated in the 13th century and continuously produced sodium chloride, or table salt, until 2007. That is a really long time! As the result of falling salt prices and mine flooding, commercial salt mining was discontinued in 1996. 4. Lake Ore-Be-Gone Lake Ore-Be-Gone is an artificial freshwater lake in Gilbert, Minnesota that was made by flooding three open-pit ore mines with water. The tranquil lake is known for its crystal-clear water, which looks “almost tropical” on an especially sunny day. 3. White Mountain Publications Bookstore In the Cobalt Mining District of Northern Ontario, you can find White Mountain Publications, an independent bookstore which is also most likely the world’s only bookstore that’s part of an old silver mine. 2. Creekside Mushrooms Ltd. Located in Worthington, PA, Creekside Mushrooms Ltd. was once the world’s largest mushroom facility and the nation’s only underground mushroom operation. The facility was located within an old limestone mine, whose subterranean conditions proved to be ideal for growing white button mushrooms. 1. Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira This Roman Catholic church was built 200 meters (220 yards) below ground in the tunnels of a former salt mine near the Colombian town of Zipaquira, about 49 kilometers (30 miles) north of Bogota. It serves as both a place of pilgrimage and a tourist destination, and is considered one of the most notable achievements of Colombian architecture. I’ve been here and it is pretty amazing!

Drones, Mines and Data
 
06:28
Drone2GIS offers a safe, efficient and accurate alternative approach to the conventional surveying method employed in open cast mines, quarries and stock yards for data acquisition. Through the employment of Unmanned Aerial Systems, Drone2GIS delivers precise, high accuracy ortho-photos, digital terrain models and virtual realities. With these products, we can extract features and positions to produce the same products one would expect from a conventional survey without the safety risks of having boots on the ground. Data can be captured as and when needed without significant impact on the day to day operation of the site and at a fraction of the time it would otherwise take. Take stock of your inventory with accurate volume measurements, visualize your site without the stock piles, and get the data you need when you need it with minimal impact on production! Surveying in an opencast mine, quarry or a stock yard has challenges. Setting up terrestrial scanners and other survey devices in the traffic of heavy equipment either slows down production or poses serious safety risks to the survey crews. Other safety and health risks involve steep ledges, potential for rock/land slides, noise and dust. Conventional surveying takes time, involves more than one person and can be very expensive. In addition to the safety concerns, logistics can also become difficult as parts of the location may need to be shut down while the survey takes place. Our approach saves time and money while ensuring a safer operation without boots on the ground. Contact us at [email protected] for more information on how we can help increase the safety, efficiency and profitability of your operation! drone2GIS, More than just Maps!

Bizarre Discoveries in Mines
 
08:36
Here are 11 of the most unusual findings deep in the earth like ancient and time primate fossils or trapped toads alive in rocks!! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 7 Toads found in Rock One strange phenomena that still doesn’t have an explanation are toads that find themselves entombed deep into stone and continue to live. For years quarriers and miners have discovered to their surprise, live toads inside of the rocks they crack open. In some cases the toads are found 5, 10, and even 20 feet deep inside of rock. In all cases, they have no visible way in or out and yet in all cases they are all still alive. This bizarre phenomena is often called “toad in the hole”. No one knows how these toads find themselves in the rock, or how they survive without any water, food, or air. # 6 Ghost Miners in Mponeng The world’s deepest gold mine called the Mponeng Mine located in South Africa runs so far into the ground with so many winding tunnels that it’s almost like a dark underground city. The expansive, dark, and hot mine is almost impossible to completely keep watch over so every once in awhile an illegal squatter will be discovered. Mponeng squatters are called “ghost miners” and will find empty caverns to make their home in, illegally mine gold to sell above ground, and will even meet with prostitutes in the mines. # 5 The Bold Travelers of Mponeng - Desulforudis audaxviator In the world’s deepest gold mine, a new species of bacterium was discovered called Desulforudis audaxviator. Audaxviator translates to “bold traveller” which refers to the fact that the bacteria was found 2 miles below the surface of the Earth and is the only organism in its ecosystem. The strange bacteria has evolved to live without sunshine or oxygen. Instead, it lives off of hydrogen and sulfide as food, which come from the breakdown of radioactive elements. Basically, it’s a nuclear waste eating bacteria. It’s the only one of its kind and have amazed scientists with its complete solitude underground. # 4 Giant Roach Fossil Found in Ohio Coal Mine Geologists were combing through an old coal mine in an area known for its plant fossils when they discovered an extremely rare fossil. It was a giant roach fossil - about 4 inches long and twice as big as most modern American roaches. The fossil is rare because it’s completely in tact, while most insect fossils are only partial imprints. Fossils in the cave also preserved some of the smallest cockroach fossils ever found and their color patterns. Inside the coal mine, even more rare insect fossils were found including a rare ancient arachnid and a 60 inch long and 12 inch wide centipede. The chemistry of this coal mine in Ohio somehow preserved these insects with extreme detail that is not seen anywhere else. # 3 Dead Body found in Ghost Town Mine Hobby adventurers had the scare of their life when they were exploring an abandoned ghost town called Whroo in Victoria, Australia. The two were in the ghost town’s abandoned mine when they found a dead body covered in plastic and shoved into a deeper hole inside. The victim was a 50 year old man in a Neil Young shirt and the perpetrators were later found to be a 26 year old man and 30 year old woman. The details on this case are scarce, but it has all the makings of a really good CSI episode. # 2 Four Square Miles of Carboniferous Forest Discovered The fossils of almost an entire forest from the Carboniferous period was uncovered in the ceiling of two adjacent coal mines in Illinois. This discovery is the largest single-period fossil discovery in recorded history. Archaeologists delved into the 250 feet deep mine to explore and record the fossils. There were upwards of 200 specimens of detailed shrubs, trees, flowers, and even insects. # 1 Tiny, Strange Primate Fossil In the Krabi coal mine of Thailand, archaeologists uncovered a new species of a teacup sized primate. They found mandibles that belong to the pea-sized primates called Krabia minuta. Krabia minuta were native to Asia and are the ancestors to all monkeys, apes, and humans. They were impressively able to make it to Africa despite being separated from a body of water at the time that was bigger than the Mediterrenean sea. This bizarre find is very important for archaeologists, because it indicates a period of extreme evolution of primates in the area and will continue to yield more discoveries in years to come.

Mine Cristal, mining quartz crystals
 
08:02
www.minecristal.ca Stay informed about our new videos: subscribe to our YouTube channel "Mine Cristal". This mine is located in Bonsecours, Quebec, Canada. Photos and video clips shown here date from 1989 - 2012. The open-pit mine produces splendid quartz crystals with exceptional clarity. The largest single crystals measure 60 cm (24 inches) in length. Since mining began in 1989, 32 types, or morphologies of quartz crystals have been catalogued. Geological research into the origins of these crystals has revealed that they formed at this location some 300 million years ago under extreme conditions of heat and pressure. We harvest crystals in the mine only as needed, to supply our store with a sufficient quantity of quartz crystals. Exceptionally (for a mine), we harvest all the crystals by hand and without the use of dynamite. It is a privilege for us to participate in the discovery and extraction of these true gems of nature. The extraction process is done in a manner which respects both the environment and the crystals: we endeavor to keep the crystals whole and in a pristine state. In the museum and the store, our crystals are presented in an untouched, natural state. Amazingly, each crystal is an intricate work of art made by Nature; no two are alike and this makes them even more fascinating! Mine Cristal is considered by experts to be a “geological gem,” one of Canada’s great natural sites, due to it’s unique and abundant mineralogical deposits.

KAGEM in ZAMBIA, The World's Largest Emerald Mine.
 
05:55
Dear all, I'm happy to invite you to discover a new field video on "Field Gemology by Vincent Pardieu". During a field expedition in June 2018 we visited the KAGEM emerald mine in the Kafubu area in Zambia in order to collect reference samples for the "Bahrain Institute for Pearls & Gemstones (DANAT)". Emeralds mining started in the Kafubu area in Zambia during the 1960's but it is only after the 1980's that Zambia became a major producer of emeralds. In 2008 Gemfields took control of the KAGEM mine and turned it into a modern very sophisticated and efficient operation. They combined several small open pits into a huge one called the Chama pit. With more than 1km wide and long and over 120 meters deep, it is the World's largest emerald mining pit. In this pit we can witness a combination of mechanized mining (when the miners work to remove the rocks that do not host emeralds) and hand mining when the miners get close to the emerald rich reaction zone between the pegmatites (rich in beryllium) and the talc-magnetite-schist (rich in chromium). Many thanks to all the people we met in Zambia during that field expedition for DANAT and a very special thanks everybody at Kagem and Gemfields for their welcome and support in order to allow us to collect on site, inside the mine, the research samples requested by DANAT Enjoy!
Giant green emerald found in Zambian mine - TomoNews
 
05:06
KAGEM, ZAMBIA — Gemfields, the world's largest producer of green stones, has discovered a giant, green emerald in Zambia. The emerald weighs more than 1.1 kilograms and was discovered in Kagem, the world's largest emerald mine located in Zambia. A statement released by Gemfields said that the emerald has "remarkable clarity and a perfectly balanced golden green hue." Emeralds in the Kagem mine were reportedly formed 450 million years ago due to a rare combination of in situ minerals and magma from the Earth's crust which then developed into emerald crystals. The gem is being called "Inkalamu" which means lion in the local Bemba language in Zambia. The uncut emerald was discovered in an open-pit mine on October 2 by a geologist and a veteran emerald miner. Several pieces are expected to be cut from the 5,655-carat emerald and will be auctioned in Singapore this month. Most of the emeralds in the world are mined from Zambia, Colombia and Brazil. As a result, emeralds are even more precious than diamonds due to their scarcity.

Mining for Emeralds in Brazil by GIA
 
02:32
http://gia.edu/gem-encyclopedia Mining for Emeralds in Brazil by GIA. Emerald gemstone has many special qualities. From Sao Paolo, Brazil, Sergio Martins discusses the emerald gemstone history, industry and how sourcing this precious stone is performed in Brazilian mines. He explains the different types of Brazilian mining systems that exist at different locations throughout the country. The Belmont mine has a large area and conducts open pit mining on a large scale. They have consistently produced this precious gemstone for 30 years. Sergio also discusses the Nova Era mine, different from the other emerald mines because it belongs to over 140 people. Located in the area of Garimpeiro, emerald mining in this region involves miners making shafts and looking for the vein that leads to a large concentration of emerald, a “pocket”. Mining can take up to few years before any emerald stones are discovered, but once found, they can produce up to 10 million dollars worth of emeralds in one pocket.

Copper mines in Zambia - Straight through Africa
 
43:29
Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of ​​no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever  For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

A Man Discovered This Dinosaur Fossil In An Old Mine, And What He Found Would Stun Paleontologists
 
06:56
Please do not forget to visit the site http://scribol.com ►Robert Clark/National Geographic https://goo.gl/CU5LnK contact us at:[email protected] http://watchjojo.com ************************************************************** Amidst the strange industrial landscape of Canada’s Athabasca oil sands, Shawn Funk is hard at work. At the controls of his excavator, he digs down through ancient layers, hoping to reach the precious bitumen beneath. But when his bucket strikes something hard, he makes a find that’s actually far, far more valuable. On March 21, 2011, Funk was on duty at Millennium Mine, a facility near Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada. Operated by Canadian energy company Suncor, the mine is one of several built to capitalize on the deposits in the Athabasca oil sands. Covering some 54,000 square miles around Fort McMurray, these sands contain bitumen – effectively, extra-heavy oil. The deposits are made of the remains of animals and plants that lived over 100 million years ago. Under steady heat and intense pressure, these remains have been converted into bitumen. But to Funk and his colleagues, the deposits of course bear little resemblance to the incredible creatures they once were. Anyhow, early in the afternoon of that day something spectacular would happen. After spending hours digging for bitumen, the bucket of Funk’s excavator struck something solid under the earth. Then, as he watched, a series of strangely colored objects fell out onto the ground below. Funk therefore grabbed his supervisor, Mike Gratton, and the pair began to investigate what he had found. Picking up one of the lumps, they turned it over to reveal a bizarre pattern. Set into the gray rock was a series of brown circles, arranged neatly in rows. Funk and Gratton had no idea what they were looking at, though. Were the shapes just peculiar pieces of fossilized wood – or could they be something else entirely? The pair quickly realized that they needed to get an expert in to take a look at their discovery, so they duly contacted the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology in Drumheller, Alberta. Opened in 1985, the museum is a hub of research in an area that has seen hundreds of dinosaur fossils discovered over the years. Soon, then, curator Donald Henderson and museum technician Darren Tanke were on a plane headed for Fort McMurray. And when they arrived, they realized that it wasn’t just a pile of strange rocks that Funk had stumbled upon. In fact, it would turn out to be one of the most fascinating dinosaur fossils that they had ever discovered. The process of removing the fossils from Millennium Mine was, though, a long and arduous one. For many hours, the teams from Suncor and the museum worked away until the rock was whittled down to a single 15,000-pound piece. Then they prepared to lift it out of the mine. However, disaster struck. The fossil was too fragile to bear its own weight, and it broke into several pieces in mid-air. So while Henderson and Tanke were desperate to get the dinosaur remains back to the museum, they also didn’t want to damage the amazing find further. Eventually, then, the broken sections were encased in plaster of Paris and transported to Drumheller, some 420 miles away – and fortunately without further incident. Finally safe at the museum, the discovery was handed over to Mark Mitchell, a fossil preparer. And over the next five years Mitchell would spend some 7,000 hours painstakingly preparing the fossil for it to take center stage in a new exhibition. As he worked, meanwhile, researchers were able to take a closer look at the fascinating find. ************************************************************** ►Image credits: Image: Robert Clark/National Geographic https://goo.gl/CU5LnK Image: Beautiful Destruction https://goo.gl/Bht1Em Image: TastyCakes https://goo.gl/pP7uYY Image: Howl Arts Collective https://goo.gl/EJAoGo Image: National Geographic https://goo.gl/N7W6LE Image: Yetiwriter https://goo.gl/RMHEUw Image: Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Image: Royal Tyrrell Museum via MailOnline Image: R Lull https://goo.gl/iQ7aZp mage: Instagram/royaltyrrell https://goo.gl/F5UYCY Image: Facebook/Priti Obhrai-Martin https://goo.gl/AJkA8y Image: Machairo https://goo.gl/xoj2nM ►web: http://watchjojo.com ► SUBSCRIBE US: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg ► Follow Us On Google Plus: https://goo.gl/JYf9Rr ► Like us Our Facebook Page: https://goo.gl/C5Rv92 ► Follow On Twitter: https://goo.gl/PZ2U1R ►For more articles visit: http://scribol.com ►reference:https://goo.gl/hZYsSA #watchjojo

The Giant Holes: Udachnaya Pipe, Russia #Vendora Udachnaya was discovered on June 15, 1955, just two days after the discovery of the diamond pipe Mir by Soviet geologist Vladimir Shchukin and his team. It is more than 600 metres (1,970 ft) deep, making it the third deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine and Chuquicamata). The nearby settlement of Udachny is named for the deposit. As of 2010, Udachnaya pipe is controlled by Russian diamond company Alrosa, which planned to halt open-pit mining in favor of underground mining in 2010. The mine has estimated reserves of 225.8 million carats of diamonds and an annual production capacity of 10.4 million carats

Dispatch with Confidence: Integration of machine learning, Optimization and Simulation for Open Pit Mines Kosta Ristovski (Hitachi America Ltd.) Chetan Gupta (Hitachi America Ltd.) Kunihiko Harada (Hitachi America Ltd.) Hsiu-Khuern Tang (Hitachi America Ltd.) Open pit mining operations require utilization of extremely expensive equipment such as large trucks, shovels and loaders. To remain competitive, mining companies are under pressure to increase equipment utilization and reduce operational costs. The key to this in mining operations is to have sophisticated truck assignment strategies which will ensure that equipment is utilized efficiently with minimum operating cost. To address this problem, we have implemented truck assignment approach which integrates machine learning, linear/integer programming and simulation. Our truck assignment approach takes into consideration the number of trucks and their sizes, shovels and dump locations as well as stochastic activity times during the operations. Machine learning is used to predict probability distributions of equipment activity duration. We have validated of the approach using data collected from two open pit mines. Our experimental results shows that our approach offers increase of 10% in efficiency. Presented results demonstrate that machine learning can bring significant value to mining industry.

The Cassiar Road
 
22:49
Cassiar was a small company-owned asbestos mining town located in the Cassiar Mountains of Northern British Columbia in western Canada. After forty years of operation, starting in 1952, the mine was unexpectedly forced to close in 1992. Most employees were laid off. Efforts to attract new purchasers to keep the mine running company failed so in September 1992 the town, mine and mill infrastructure was auctioned off. The closure was driven by a combination of factors including diminished demand for asbestos and expensive complications faced after converting from an open-pit mine to an underground mine. Most of the contents of the town, including a few houses, were sold off and trucked away. Most of the houses were bull-dozed and burned to the ground in this resource town north of Dease Lake. The mill was briefly reactivated in 1999 by Cassiar Chrysotile Inc which had a reclamation permit to clean up the site. 11,000 tons of asbestos were exported before the mill burned down on Christmas Day of 2000, effectively halting all production. Cassiar was once the largest town in British Columbia north of Fort Nelson, with a population approaching 2,000, its own store, school, hospital, churches and recreation facilities and set in a beautiful alpine valley 100 miles southwest of Watson Lake, Yukon. Asbestos had been known in the area by white men since 1872 and the local Indians had known for centuries that the mountain sheep bedded down on the yellowish-white "fluff" at the north end of Mount McDame. The established asbestos companies in Quebec, Johns-Mannville and Asbestos Corporation thought the deposit too remote, as did ASARCO. Conwest however, recognized the potential of the iron-free long fibre, and in the spring of 1951, began to develop the mine and bring to production, against a monopolistic market, in one of the most inaccessible and remote areas of Canada, the high-grade Cassiar Asbestos Mine. The mine is on the top of a mountain in northern B.C. at 6,000 feet elevation, 86 miles south of Mile 648 on the Alaska Highway and 100 road miles from Watson Lake, Yukon. By 1953 the property was in production. From the beginning it was realized that to maintain a stable work force in this isolated area, provision must be made for married staff. At first the open pit mine was operated only in the summer and ore was stockpiled to feed the mill through the winter but as markets increased it became more economical to operate the mine all year. The product was marketed through Bell Asbestos of Thetford Mines, Quebec, a subsidiary of asbestos manufacturer Turner & Newall of England, whose supply of fibre from South Africa was diminishing. From Whitehorse, the fibre in pallets went by White Pass & Yukon Railway to Skagway, Alaska, then by freighter to Asbestos Wharf in North Vancouver and from there to markets all over the world. For more about the town of Cassiar, check out the website, http://www.cassiar.ca/home/home.htm . For current information on asbestos, the hazards of exposure and to learn how you can help prevent asbestos-related disease, link to and join the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), an independent organization founded in 2004. ADAO seeks to give asbestos victims and concerned citizens a united voice to raise public awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure. ADAO is the largest victims' organization dedicated to preventing asbestos-related diseases through education and legislation. ADAO's mission includes supporting global advocacy and advancing asbestos awareness, prevention, early detection, treatment, and resources for asbestos-related disease. For more information visit www.asbestosdiseaseawareness.org. This is clipped from the 1960 film "The Cassiar Road (the story of a mine on a mountain top)." Sponsored by the Cassiar Asbestos Company, the film shows the sponsor's asbestos mines in British Columbia, including showing mining and milling operations, grading, packing and transport to the docks in Skagway, Alaska. The mining and milling operations in British Columbia began in 1953. They ceased operations in 1992, when it went the Company went bankrupt and subsequently dissolved. Cassiar did not itself manufacture or sell any finished products. Instead it sold the raw asbestos fibers to manufacturers, including companies such as Johns-Manville, Fibreboard, and CertainTeed.

http://RareInvestment.com - The Argyle Diamond Mine is a diamond mine located in the East Kimberley region in the remote north of Western Australia. Argyle is the largest diamond producer in the world by volume, although due to the low proportion of gem-quality diamonds, is not the leader by value. It is the only known significant source of pink diamonds, producing over 90% of the world's supply. It additionally provides a large proportion of other naturally coloured diamonds, including champagne, cognac and rare blue diamonds. Argyle is currently transitioning from an open pit mine to an underground mine. Up until late 2005, the Argyle mine faced an uncertain future. For 21 years, the source of Argyle's production has been the bountiful open pit operation, which is now nearing the end of its economic life and is due to close in 2010.

Ammonite Factory - Canmore, Alberta - CANADA - Ammolite History, Mining, Miner, Producer - RARE GEM
 
01:44
http://ammonite-factory.com Ammolite is one of the world's rarest gems. It comes in the full spectrum of colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The quickly depleting world supply of Ammolite makes it a unique and memorable purchase. Ammolite is known as Alberta's Gemstone. Ammolite's iridescent colours glow with the beauty of a rainbow. Millions of years of tectonic pressure created this beautiful gem from the fossilized remains of the ammonite shell. A glittering addition to any jewelry collection, Ammolite's luminous qualities rival the famous black opal for colours and fire. Each Ammolite gem is unique in brilliance, colours and pattern. The rarest and most desirable Ammolite shows three or more colours and is graded AA. Ammolite, like all gem stones, should be treated gently: not soaked in water, not exposed to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures, cleaned only with a soft cloth. We offer some of the best in ammolite jewellery, including pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings and more. We have a large selection of free-form unset Ammolite gems, as well as the rare two-sided Imperials. We also carry a large inventory of free-standing art pieces and full ammonite fossils. You'll find possibly the largest collection of Ammolite and ammonites under one roof when you visit our factory and gallery. Since 1987, owner Richard Morgan has personally gathered the precious stones, which are recovered by open pit mining. Come visit "The Factory" to take a tour and learn about the mining and manufacturing process. 106 Bow Meadows Crescent Canmore, Alberta - Canada (403) 678-1786 ______ Ammolite History Ammolite comes from the fossil shells of the Upper Cretaceous disk-shaped ammonites Placenticeras meeki and Placenticeras intercalare, and (to a lesser degree) the cylindrical baculite Baculites compressus. Ammonites were cephalopods, or squid-like creatures, that thrived in tropical seas until becoming extinct along with the dinosaurs at the end of the Mesozoic era. The ammonites that form Ammolite inhabited an inland subtropical sea that bordered the Rocky Mountains. This area is known today as the Cretaceous or Western Interior Seaway. As the seas receded, the ammonites were buried and crushed by layers of bentonite sediment. This sediment preserved the aragonite of their shelled remains, preventing it from converting to calcite. Through diagenesis, the shells were impregnated by trace elements present in these sediments, the most common of these being iron and copper. This accounts for the predominance of the red and green colours. Mining operations are fairly basic, involving the excavation of shallow pits with backhoes. Significant deposits of gem-quality ammolite are found only in the Bearpaw Sea formation that extends from Alberta to Saskatchewan in Canada and south to Montana in the USA. The best grade of gem-quality Ammolite is along high-energy river systems on the eastern slopes of the Rockies in southern Alberta.

Crater of Diamonds Park - Sifting at the Wash Station Day 1

We moved to the shaded wash station once we got too hot in the open field. I like the wash station because it is easier for me to help Robert as he sifts for diamonds.

Germany plans to phase out coal mining | DW News
 
06:49
A key government commission is meeting in Berlin today, as it seeks solutions for phasing out coal power in Germany. It's a vexed topic - but one that goes hand-in-hand with government plans to cut carbon emissions, in line with global targets. Still, in the eastern region of Lusatia, it's the economic impact of cutting out coal - rather than the environmental - that's on people's minds.

VLOG: Quarrying in Batangas? Not yet, says Lopez-owned firm
 
00:38
Environment Secretary Gina Lopez will again face the powerful Commission on Appointments on Tuesday, May 2. One of the issues raised against her is the alleged quarrying operations of Lopez-owned company First Balfour in Batangas. The company denied such allegations. In a memorandum signed last March 10, Lopez excluded certain quarry resources from her department's mining moratorium. Quarrying is also not included in Lopez's latest administrative order banning "prospective open-pit mines" in the country. Jee Geronimo reports.

ABANDONED Pit Mine Becomes HOTEL!
 
02:22
Something amazing is happening outside of the city limits of Shanghai, an old, abandoned pit mine is being brought back to life. On this episode we’ll take a look how this old pit mine is becoming a hotel. The Intercontinental Shimao quarry hotel is a hotel being built at the site of an old pit mine in the Songjiang District of Shanghai, China. This 5 star hotel will be built in an S shape along one wall of the abandoned pit mine at the base of the Tianmeshan Mountain. This 18 floor hotel will designate 2 of those floors being underwater in the partially flooded pit at the bottom. The lobby, meeting center, recreation facilities and dining are the only 2 floors that will be above ground. The hotel will have 370 rooms, as well as a 1000 person conference room, grand ballroom cafes and restaurants on the ground floor. It is expected to have a soft opening by the end of 2017 and rooms will cost an estimated $320 per night. Hanging gardens will cascade off the roofs giving the image of a green hillside growing down the face of the pit as well as a vertical glass atrium will run from the bottom to the ground level disguised as a waterfall. Not only is this a hotel but it will feature extreme sports activities like bungee jumping, rock climbing and sightseeing platform. A lake will be made by filling in part of the pit in front of the hotel for swimming and relaxing in the sun. Construction has been difficult on this project but expected considering this is the world’s lowest artificial altitude hotel. The biggest challenges have been designing the safety systems like fire safety, waterproof facilities, and earthquake precautions. After many delays the project has moved forward swiftly since 2014. Drones, 3d scanners, and wire-release robots have all been used in the preparation for this building, allowing engineers to detect uneven rock surfaces, make precise measurements and help with transport of construction materials and workers.
