What is CORE DRILL? What does CORE DRILL mean? CORE DRILL meaning, definition & explanation
What is CORE DRILL? What does CORE DRILL mean? CORE DRILL meaning - CORE DRILL definition - CORE DRILL explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A core drill is a drill specifically designed to remove a cylinder of material, much like a hole saw. The material left inside the drill bit is referred to as the core. Core drills used in metal are called annular cutters. Core drills used for concrete are generally called Diamond Core Drills and are water cooled. For drilling masonry, carbide core drills can be used. The earliest core drills were those used by the ancient Egyptians, invented in 3000 BC. Core drills are used for many applications, either where the core needs to be preserved (the drilling apparatus used in obtaining a core sample is often referred to as a corer), or where drilling can be done more rapidly since much less material needs to be removed than with a standard bit. This is the reason that diamond-tipped core drills are commonly used in construction to create holes for pipes, manholes, and other large-diameter penetrations in concrete or stone. Core drills are used frequently in mineral exploration where the coring may be several hundred to several thousand feet in length. The core samples are recovered and examined by geologists for mineral percentages and stratigraphic contact points. This gives exploration companies the information necessary to begin or abandon mining operations in a particular area. Before the start of World War Two, Branner Newsom, a California mining engineer, invented a core drill that could take out large diameter cores up to 16 feet in length for mining shafts. This type of core drill is no longer in use as modern drill technology allows standard drilling to accomplish the same at a much cheaper cost. Core drills come with several power choices including electric, pneumatic, hydraulic (all of which require power sources, such as a generator).

TechKnow - Deep sea gold rush
Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years. What is the future of seabed mining? And what are the consequences of seabed mining for the marine ecosystems? Can science and industry co-exist and work together on viable and sustainable solutions? - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check out our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Pituffik, Moriusaq, Titanium Mining in Greenland
Bluejay is dual listed on the London AIM market (JAY) and Frankfurt Stock Exchange and primarily focussed on advancing the Dundas Ilmenite project (previously known as the Pituffik Titanium Project) in Greenland into production in 2018. With a defined resource in place, Dundas has been proven to be the highest-grade mineral sand ilmenite project globally, and work is now underway to establish its significant size potential. The Company’s strategy is focused on the production of a bulk sample “proof of concept” from the Dundas Project in 2017 with the aim of securing an offtake partner and commencing commercial production in 2018 in order to create a company capable of self-funding exploration on current projects and future acquisitions. Bluejay holds two additional projects in Greenland – the 194sq km Disko-Nuussuaq (‘Disko’) Magmatic Massive Sulphide (‘MMS’) nickel-copper-platinum project (‘Ni-Cu-PGM’), which has shown its potential to host mineralisation similar to the world’s largest nickel/copper sulphide mine Norilsk-Talnakh, and the 107sq km Kangerluarsuk Sed-Ex lead-zinc-silver project (‘Kangerluarsuk’), where historical work has recovered grades of 41% zinc, 9.3% lead and 596 g/t silver and identified four large-scale drill ready targets. Bluejay intends to conduct a high-powered, ground based, electromagnetic survey at Disko in Q4 2017 for the purposes of identifying optimum drill site locations for the possibility of drilling during 2018. The Company also has a 100% interest in a portfolio of copper, zinc and nickel projects in Finland. This multi-commodity portfolio has been restructured to be cost-sustainable whilst determining the best plan for future development. Bluejay maintains an active growth strategy and will review various opportunities that come to its attention to continue to deliver on its stated objective of acquiring high quality assets to expand and complement the its existing portfolio.

The Largest Oil Rig in The World
Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.

What is COALBED METHANE? What does COALBED METHANE mean? COALBED METHANE meaning & explanation
What is COALBED METHANE? What does COALBED METHANE mean? COALBED METHANE meaning - COALBED METHANE definition - COALBED METHANE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Coalbed methane (CBM or coal-bed methane), coalbed gas, coal seam gas (CSG), or coal-mine methane (CMM) is a form of natural gas extracted from coal beds. In recent decades it has become an important source of energy in United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries. The term refers to methane adsorbed into the solid matrix of the coal. It is called 'sweet gas' because of its lack of hydrogen sulfide. The presence of this gas is well known from its occurrence in underground coal mining, where it presents a serious safety risk. Coalbed methane is distinct from a typical sandstone or other conventional gas reservoir, as the methane is stored within the coal by a process called adsorption. The methane is in a near-liquid state, lining the inside of pores within the coal (called the matrix). The open fractures in the coal (called the cleats) can also contain free gas or can be saturated with water. Unlike much natural gas from conventional reservoirs, coalbed methane contains very little heavier hydrocarbons such as propane or butane, and no natural-gas condensate. It often contains up to a few percent carbon dioxide. Coalbed methane grew out of venting methane from coal seams. Some coal beds have long been known to be "gassy," and as a safety measure, boreholes were drilled into the seams from the surface, and the methane allowed to vent before mining. Coalbed methane as a natural-gas resource received a major push from the US federal government in the late 1970s. Federal price controls were discouraging natural gas drilling by keeping natural gas prices below market levels; at the same time, the government wanted to encourage more gas production. The US Department of Energy funded research into a number of unconventional gas sources, including coalbed methane. Coalbed methane was exempted from federal price controls, and was also given a federal tax credit. In Australia, commercial extraction of coal seam gas began in 1996 in the Bowen Basin of Queensland. Gas contained in coal bed methane is mainly methane and trace quantities of ethane, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and few other gases. Intrinsic properties of coal as found in nature determine the amount of gas that can be recovered. To extract the gas, a steel-encased hole is drilled into the coal seam 100 to 1,500 metres (330 to 4,920 ft) below ground. As the pressure within the coal seam declines due to natural production or the pumping of water from the coalbed, both gas and produced water come to the surface through tubing. Then the gas is sent to a compressor station and into natural gas pipelines. The produced water is either reinjected into isolated formations, released into streams, used for irrigation, or sent to evaporation ponds. The water typically contains dissolved solids such as sodium bicarbonate and chloride but varies depending on the formation geology. Coalbed methane wells often produce at lower gas rates than conventional reservoirs, typically peaking at near 300,000 cubic feet (8,500 m3) per day (about 0.100 m3/s), and can have large initial costs. The production profiles of CBM wells are typically characterized by a "negative decline" in which the gas production rate initially increases as the water is pumped off and gas begins to desorb and flow. A dry CBM well is similar to a standard gas well. The methane desorption process follows a curve (of gas content vs. reservoir pressure) called a Langmuir isotherm. The isotherm can be analytically described by a maximum gas content (at infinite pressure), and the pressure at which half that gas exists within the coal. These parameters (called the Langmuir volume and Langmuir pressure, respectively) are properties of the coal, and vary widely. A coal in Alabama and a coal in Colorado may have radically different Langmuir parameters, despite otherwise similar coal properties.

Another Piece Of (The) Rose Quartz
This one keeps pulling us back… And there’s a simple reason for that. Every time we go, we find something new. This whole complex is just covered in adits. Most of them are inaccessible, but the sheer number of them is staggering. My exploring buddy (his channel is Adit Addicts) did a separate trip here at the start of winter and discovered yet another adit not far from the one in this video. It took some work to squeeze into and, once inside, did not extend back far, but, like the adit shown in this video, seemed to connect to other levels below. There were also an interesting series of stulls in the adit he located. He has not posted that video yet, but below are a couple from my early exploring days of other parts of the Rose Quartz Complex (I caution you that the video quality is nowhere near as good as that allowed by the gear I have now, but you’ll get the idea if you’re curious). This adit is located farther down the creek: https://bit.ly/2GebRId This inaccessible adit is up on the ridge: https://bit.ly/2BqOQOl Likely of more interest, the 1918 Mines & Mineral Resources of Plumas County from the California State Mining Bureau has the following on the Rose Quartz Mining Company: “This property consists of nine claims, names unknown, none of which are patented. There is a total of 180 acres with a length along the lode of 3000'. High lava-capped peaks and deep V-shaped canyons mark the surface. The main vein (No. 1) is developed by a 178' crosscut adit to the vein, cutting it 150' below the outcrop, and 60' driven along the vein. There is also a winze on the vein extending 30' below the tunnel level. The No. 2 vein is developed by a 60' shaft with a 50' crosscut from the bottom, and the Rose vein by a 259' crosscut adit, meeting the vein 100' below its outcrop, with 95' driven on the vein. Drilling is done by hand. The deposit consists of quartz veins evidently following a siliceous porphyry dike in slates. The workings are in the decomposed dike and no crosscuts have been run to true walls. Nos. 1 and 2 veins, parallel and 85' apart, are made up of quartz and decomposed porphyry containing free gold, auriferous arsenopyrite and galena. The foot-wall of No. 1 vein is not determined, the hanging wall is slate. It varies in width from 10' to 15'; strikes N. 7° E. dips 70° E., and has a proven length on the surface of 1000'. No 2 vein has slate walls, is 50' in width, strikes N. 10° E., and dips east. The Rose vein is a quartz vein in slates with a filling of rose quartz. It varies from 3' to 6' in width, with an average of 4' strikes north and dips east. It carries free gold and a very little galena and arsenopyrite. No. 1 vein averages $9; No. 2, where 15' wide, runs $4.80 a ton; where 30' wide, it runs $3.50. The Rose mine is a very good-looking prospect, and from panning of ore appears to be well worthy of extended development. Final judgment can not be passed until the veins are crosscut and developed at deeper levels. Masses of arsenopyrite are found, which can be burned and show a large amount of gold. Free gold also occurs in the center of hard, glassy looking quartz, not associated with sulphides nor a product of oxidation. Galena in appreciable quantities is associated with the arsenopyrite. There are on the property a blacksmith shop and cabins; a 5-stamp Hendy mill, rock breaker and concentrator to be run by a distillate engine are being installed. A tramway will be installed from the mouth of tunnel No. 1 to the mill, a distance of 300'. Labor cost from $3 to $3.50 per day in 1914. Transportation 1 cent per pound from Quincy.” Obviously, times have changed! However, the remains of much of the equipment described in 1918 can still be seen (as you saw in this video). There is more closer to the top of the ridge as well. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines

Tax Incentives Available to Oil and Gas Investors
The oil and gas sector offers an appealing investment option because of the potential for lucrative returns and the tax incentives that are available. Many people are unaware that the Tax Act of 1992 was created with financial incentives to boost domestic oil and gas. The act includes provisions that allow oil and gas investors the opportunity to offset up to 100 percent of their investment capital. The ultra-rich enjoying taking advantage of these opportunities because there are no income or net worth limitations. There is no other investment category that receives the same range of tax breaks that are available to the oil and gas industry. Investors have several options to consider when investing in the oil and gas industry. 1. Tangible Drilling Cost are the actual costs associated with the drilling equipment for a project. These expenses are 100% deductible, however must be written off over a seven year depreciation span. 2. Intangible drilling costs: With the exception of the drilling equipment all items needed to drill a well are considered intangible. So this includes labor, mud, grease, chemicals and any other eligible items. These expenses usually make up between 65 and 80 percent of the total cost to drill a well and are 100% deductible. The deductible amount is contingent on the well being operational by March 31st of the following year. Whether or not the well actually produces or strikes oil does not affect the possible credit. 3. Active vs. Passive Income: A working interest in is not considered to be a passive activity. Therefore all net losses are active income and can be used to offset alternate forms of income like wages or capital gains. 4. Smaller Producer Tax Exemptions- is exclusively for small companies and investors. many consider this exemption to be the most attractive break for investor and refer to it as the "depletion allowance". This exemption allows investors to offset 15% of all gross income from an oil and gas investment. However an investor is not allowed to own more than 1,000 barrels of oil per day, or 6 million cubic feet of gas per day. There are four main categories available to individuals who are interested in investing in oil and gas. Each of the following categories have different risk levels, as well as individual rules for eligible tax incentives. Mutual Funds: Are the safest investment opportunities available for the oil and gas industry and perhaps that's why it doesn't come with any tax advantages. Partnerships: There are several types of partnerships available for oil and gas investors, however the most common is a limited partnership. These partnerships are sold as securities and limits the investors liability to the amount invested in the project. Royalties: are returns paid to individuals who own the land where oil and gas wells are drilled. Landowners can earn between 12 and 20 percent of the gross production revenue. Land owners are not eligible for tax incentives. Working Interests: is considered to be extremely high risk. The majority of investors who select working interests are extremely affluent and have an income that exceeds the taxable wage base for Social Security. While there are numerous benefits to investing in the oil and gas industry it's extremely important to remember that the discussed ventures are extremely risky. Per the FTC only accredited investors who have the financial means to withstand a devastating financial loss are eligible for these types of investments.

History of Cornish Mining - Cligga Mine Revisited - Poldark Times
Cornish Tin Mine and Mining History - Cligga Mine Revisited - Cligga Head, Perranporth Cornwall. 3 ghostly images are in the footage from Nosferatu (copyright expired). Revisit of Cligga Tin Mine with much improved lighting, filmed on my GoPro3, 3 hour trip condensed into 30 minutes no software enhancement required. Cree t6 and XML-U2 lamps provide incredible lighting. Bob and myself both have extensive knowledge of mines and mining techniques through working in the industry, old workings are extremely dangerous and must only be entered with a full understanding of how they work, many transfer chutes, winzes, shafts and open stopes make it a hazardous environment. History of Cligga Mine. Cligga Wolfram & Tin Mine lies on the cliff tops about one and a quarter miles southwest of Perranporth on the North Cornish coast. The granite pegmatite cliffs have been altered to greisen and exhibit jointing and veining. The veins often filled with cassiterite (tin oxide), wolframite, mispickel (arsenical pyrite) and the copper/iron suphides, chalcopyrite and bornite. Silver ore has also been reported here. There is one shaft on the sett called Contact Shaft and two adits, one at beach level called Beach Adit, the other atop the cliffs and unsurprisingly called Cliff Adit. The mine worked in the early part of the twentieth century although 'Old Men's Workings' from the past are quite visible as you approach the area. Mining restarted in 1938 after a period of closure prior to the mine being taken over by the 'Rhodesian Mines Trust Limited in 1939'. Trials were carried out around this time to see if it was more feasible to work the stockwork as an open cast pit rather than an underground mine, but this came to nothing. There is surprisingly little information on Cligga although there are production records showing that between 1940 and 1944, 300 tons of wolfram and 200 tons of black tin were raised and sold. 1945 Cligga Mine closed. The War was nearly over and shipments of American tungsten were now arriving regularly in England. The high cost of producing a small quantity of tungsten from Cligga could no longer by justified and therefore, production at Cligga was halted. In 1962 the 'Geevor Mining Company took out a lease on the mine and in collaboration with the Sungesi Besi, Tronoh and Panang Companies started a programme of shaft rehabilitation and deepening with a view to re-opening the mine. Contact shaft was deepened to 550 feet from surface, drives 'on lode' were started both seawards and inland. However water was hit at about 250 feet from the shaft and work there abandoned. The seaward drive continued for some 800 feet before further exploration by diamond drilling commenced. The results were inconclusive, and by early 1964 Geevor had decided to unwater 'Levant' mine instead of re-opening Cligga. 1976 there was renewed interest in mining for tin on a small scale at Cligga, and Wheal Concord undertook a limited programme of evaluation. Wheal Concord Ltd planned to re-open contact shaft in 1984-1985, but the collapse of the tin-market in October 1985 put a stop to this. Cornish tin mines are dangerous only people with knowledge of working mines should enter but then only with extreme caution. History of Cornish Tin Mines collection All music composed with vst plugins and keyboard with mixer, even then had to re up due to a copyright issue and it was my very own work - crazy. 39 views until then. Cligga Mine modern history. 1938 September 21st the "Cligga Wolfram and Tin Mines Ltd" was founded and soon after completion of the installation the rich ore veins were exploited. 1939 The Rhodesian Mines Trust Ltd. took over the company Contact shaft was extended until it reached close to sea level and new stopes were drilled to fully exploit the ore body. 1940, vibration from blasting caused the first of several collapses of the area of cliffs housing the process water pumps (at the northern end of the beach). Eventually, a tunnel was driven to the northwest and a new pump chamber established just above sea level, well away from the effects of blasting. 1941 with the new pump system functional, it was possible to increase production. However, although production had increased, the cost of production had also increased. 1945 Cligga Mine closed. The War was nearly over and shipments of American tungsten were now arriving regularly in England. The high cost of producing a small quantity of tungsten from Cligga could no longer by justified and therefore, production at Cligga was halted.

Bucket Wheel Excavator (Bagger 293)
The Bagger 293 is a giant bucket-wheel excavator built in Germany in 1995. It requires a crew of five to operate and can move over 8.5 million cubic feet of earth per day. The Bagger 293 uses a large 70-foot rotating wheel at the end of a long arm. This wheel has a series of buckets attached, and as the wheel rotates the buckets pick up the earth and dump it onto a conveyor belt. The conveyor belts will transport the earth to other vehicles for removal to the dumping site.

Zinc mining in Turkey and exploring for zinc in Nevada with Pasinex Resources.
If you’re interested in zinc, then Pasinex Resources might well be a name you’re familiar with. We spoke with Steve Williams, CEO of Pasinex Resources, to find out about their profitable zinc mine in Turkey, in addition to ongoing exploration close to the mine. Approximately a year ago Pasinex also acquired an early exploration zinc project in Nevada. The Nevada project has shown a different form of mineralisation to what Pasinex had expected. That form of mineralisation is shared with some of the larger, successful projects in Nevada currently, so Pasinex are full of hope for their Nevada exploration. It’s early days, and still a lot of drilling to perform, but watch this space

ONGC : Oil and Natural Gas Commission of India
Since its inception, ONGC has been instrumental in transforming the country's limited upstream sector into a large viable playing field, with its activities spread throughout India and significantly in overseas territories. In the inland areas, ONGC not only found new resources in Assam but also established new oil province in Cambay basin (Gujarat), while adding new petroliferous areas in the Assam-Arakan Fold Belt and East coast basins (both inland and offshore). ONGC went offshore in early 70's and discovered a giant oil field in the form of Bombay High, now known as Mumbai High. This discovery, along with subsequent discoveries of huge oil and gas fields in Western offshore changed the oil scenario of the country. Subsequently, over 5 billion tonnes of hydrocarbons, which were present in the country, were discovered. The most important contribution of ONGC, however, is its self-reliance and development of core competence in E&P activities at a globally competitive level. Today, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC) is, the leader in Exploration & Production (E&P) activities in India contributing 72 per cent to India’s total production of crude oil and 48 per cent of natural gas. ONGC’s quest for energy goes deeper than setting new benchmarks in deep-water drilling in the Krishna Godavari Basin or finding new frontiers of energy. Global decline in crude prices notwithstanding, we have taken significant investment decisions diligently and aggressively, reversing the production trend in offshore. And now we are venturing into deeper offshore plays in our quest for energy security. It is this journey that has placed us among Fortune “World’s Most Admired Companies” and ranked us 3rd in the E&P industry globally on the Platts Top 250 Rankings 2014.

Exploring The Donner Railroad Tunnels
The First Transcontinental Railroad was quite an ambitious project and this video highlights what was almost certainly the largest obstacle to the completion of that project. The mountains of the Sierra Nevada are not insignificant and we all know how things can go wrong in Donner Pass (my foreign viewers should Google “the Donner Party” if they do not understand that reference). At the time this project was announced, it was exceedingly difficult for even a wagon to make it over the steep, rocky terrain of the mountain range. As such, the proposal by the chief engineer of the Central Pacific Railroad, Theodore Judah, to send the large, heavy trains THROUGH the mountain at the summit rather than over it was met with no small amount of skepticism. Well, as we all know today, Mr. Judah was not mentally ill and his bold plan worked. As mentioned in the video, it was not without a cost though. Aside from being hugely expensive, there was a tremendous loss of life involved in the construction of these railroad tunnels – especially among the many thousands of Chinese laborers toiling away to run these tunnels through the mountain. These tunnels were drilled by hand (no pneumatic drills in those days) and then blasted out with gunpowder and later nitroglycerin. They were attempting to push through solid granite though and so progress was measured in inches rather than feet (centimeters rather than meters). Just as an example, that shaft in the first tunnel? It took almost three months simply to get it down to the level where they could start working on the tunnel itself. The fastest pace the workers ever achieved on the shaft was one foot a day. This solid granite is the primary reason the tunnels (not the snowsheds) look so similar now to when they were first constructed. There was no need to do any more work on them. You’ll notice the absence of supports inside the rock tunnels (or rock that has fallen to the ground) in support of that statement. They certainly look to be in far better shape than many of the mines that we have visited – and those mines were never in operation as long as these railroad tunnels! The concrete snowsheds, of course, are more modern. The original snowsheds were constructed of wood and stretched for many, many miles. There are some great pictures of them to be found online should viewers be curious. The final train ran through the tunnels in 1993 when rail service was switched to a new 10,322-foot tunnel to the south (under the same mountain).

Mammoth Mine, New Light Mine, Allen Basin,  Washington Mining History
During the years 1895 through 1935, the New Light mine was owned respectively by the Eureka Mining Co, C.D. Lane, Bonita Gold Mining Co., Brown Development Co., and New Light GoldMining Co. During that period, two glory holes were mined yielding $350,000 in gold from enriched surface mineralization, 8000 feet of underground development was completed, and a ten-stamp mill was erected. Mining operations were sporadic. In 1935, a 50-ton flotation mill replaced the stamp mill. Western Gold Mining Co. (WGM) acquired the property in 1940, which by that year consisted of 46 claims and 13,150 feet of underground development. Government Order L-108 halted all gold mining operations within the U.S. in 1942. From 1942 to 1965, WGM increased mill capacity to 120 tons per day, conducted diamond drilling, and bulldozed a vast array of surface trenches in an effort to develop ore reserves sufficient to justify large-scale operations. About 300 tons of ore were produced during that time. Consultants hired to evaluate the exploration activity estimated ore reserves of about 1.1 million tons (Magill, 1969) and (Cheney, 1971). The property lay idle until 1979 when Lion Mines Ltd., Vancouver, B.C., obtained a lease. They mined 1000 tons of surface ore adjacent to the original glory hole and 6200 additional tons in 1980. Lion Mines’ lease expired in 1983, the same year an avalanche destroyed the flotation mill and diesel electric plant. A joint venture between the U.S. Forest Service and WGM in 1984 removed the mill debris from Bonita Creek and rehabilitated the tailings pond. The last entry in DGER mine files, dated June 1986, indicates that Stray Horse Resources, Inc., entered into a 7-year lease agreement with WGM. No data on activity or production from this agreement is available. The Mammoth mine was also discovered in 1895. A5-stamp mill was built in 1898 on the southwest corner of the Mammoth claim. About 15,000 tons were produced from stopes above the mine’s principal entry, known as the Mammoth tunnel, prior to 1901. In that year, eastern financial interests acquired control and constructed a wire-rope tramway extending from the mine to a 10-stamp water-powered mill at the confluence of Bonita Creek and Slate Creek, a distance of 3800 feet. The property lay idle until the early 1930s when D.W.McArthur bought it at a tax sale. In 1936, the Mammoth Gold Mining Co. drove an adit known as the ‘D’ level approximately 400 feet below the Mammoth tunnel. This work resulted in a small shipment of ore to the Tacoma smelter, which probably represents the last production from the property. At 1:39 you can see the remains of the old bunkhouse that was used to house the miners that worked in the area.

5 years to complete sinking the shafts at the new Bakubung Platinum Mine (big construction project)
It will take 5 years to complete sinking the shafts at the new Bakubung Platinum Mine. The deepest shaft is 1 kilometre down. The mine will be ready to begin extracting platinum in 2018. More about Bakubung: Wesizwe's core project is the Bakubung Platinum Mine (formerly known as the Frischgewaagd-Ledig project). The property consists of various portions of the farm Frischgewaagd 96 JQ and Ledig 909 JQ. These two farms are located directly south of the Pilanesberg complex. The project site is situated directly adjacent to the western side of the Royal Bafokeng Platinum Styldrift project and immediately north of Maseve's Project 1, owned in partnership with Canadian group Platinum Group Metals (PTM). These properties are all located on the Western Limb of the mineral-rich Bushveld Igneous Complex in the North West province of South Africa. The Bakubung Platinum Mine will comprise of an underground mine with a twin vertical shaft system - a main shaft and a ventilation shaft which will also function as the second escape route -- and a process plant. The main shaft is planned to have a hoisting capacity of 230 000 tonnes of ore plus 40 000 tonnes of waste per month. Initially the Merensky Reef ore will be mined at the rate of 180 000 tonnes and the UG2 ore will make up the balance of 50 000 tonnes per month. Once the Merensky has been depleted, the full 230 000 tonnes will be generated from UG2 ore. It is anticipated that the annual 4E (3 PGM + Au) production during steady state be around 350 000 ounces. The Merensky Reef will be mined using conventional stoping methods and the UG2 using semi-mechanised methods, also known as hybrid methods. Crushing will be done underground from where the reefs will be separately conveyed to stockpiles at the concentrator plant. The concentrator design has emanated from the results of the test work conducted during the bankable feasibility study and is based on a standard PGM plant layout. Options for collaboration in developing a joint concentrator plant with neighbours Maseve are being investigated to exploit benefits from economies of scale and sharing capital infrastructure costs.

Exploring A Large Limestone Mine - Part 3
I’m not exaggerating when I say that this section of the abandoned limestone mine has the biggest adits (mine tunnels) that I have ever seen – and we have seen a lot of underground mines… It seems apparent that the miners were intent on extracting as much limestone as possible, while maintaining the minimum of what was necessary for the structural integrity of the mine. As such, we encountered adit after adit, all in rows with interconnecting tunnels. These rows of adits extend to the levels above and below too, leaving just a skeleton of stone behind to prop everything up. It really is an extraordinary site. Bear in mind, we only scratched the surface of all that makes up this mine. There are many levels we did not access and many drifts we did not go into. Given the sheer scale of the workings in this section of the mine, we assumed that these workings must be newer than the first underground workings we explored. Some have expressed surprise that the miners did not simply pursue an open pit operation at this limestone deposit. In fact, the remainder of this deposit is being quarried nearby. However, the miners were not stupid and the concrete plant is still in business. So, give them the benefit of the doubt in regard to pursuing the limestone deposit underground in this section. Given how low labor costs used to be and given that earthmoving equipment can handle a lot more now than it could more than a century ago when they started this mine, it was probably more economical for the miners to punch in from the side and to haul the limestone straight out rather than to dig down from the top in order to haul it up and out to be turned into concrete. Again, a big thank you to Alessio for sharing this mine with us... His channel can be found below and he does urban exploration in general, not just abandoned mines! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoy6TTAGyJDVPxv9DQrs3LA ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We have fun doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

DRILLING RIG MI8 for geothermal boreholes with casing drive system
DRILLING RIG MI8 for geothermal boreholes with casing drive system, no need for expensive and bulky double rotary head. The casing drive system, as you can see in the video, is utilized when drilling with a DTH hammer in inconsistent soil. Under such conditions it is very likely the borehole will collapse. The solution adopted so far is to use a double rotary head: one to drive the drill pipes and one to drive the casing which are positioned simultaneously. This solution is however very expensive in terms of initial investment (two rotary heads instead of one), in terms of drilling costs (high fuel consumption) and finally in terms of maintenance (spare parts for two rotary heads, more powerful engines etc.). As a better alternative the casing drive system needs just one rotary head for driving both the drill pipes and the casing. This system is really simple and the benefits are remarkable: • The final result is the same obtainable with the double rotary head • The rig is smaller and lighter • The initial investment costs are considerably lower • The drilling costs are considerably reduced POWER PACK Engine power 156 Hp (115 kW) FUEL TANK Capacity 150 litri (39,6 gal) SLIDING MAST: stroke 900 mm (3 ft) MAST: max. stroke of rotary head 4,1 m (13 ft 6”) Max pull up and down: 12.000 daN (26.977 lbf) ROTARY HEAD Max torque 11.000 Nm (8.115 lbf•ft) Max speed 130 Rpm WINCH Max line pull 3.100 daN (6.970 lbf) DOUBLE HYDRAULIC CLAMP Model MS360: max passagge Ø 360 mm (14”) CASING EXTRACTOR: Max pull up 25 tons (55.115 lbf) TILTING PIPES RACK CASING DRIVE SYSTEM

This film documents Project Mohole, an ambitious attempt to drill through the Earth's crust into the Mohorovičić discontinuity, and to provide an Earth science complement to the high-profile Space Race. The project was initially led by the American Miscellaneous Society with funding from the National Science Foundation. The goal was to use technology developed for the petroleum industry to penetrate deeper into the Earth's crust than ever before. A converted U.S. Navy ship, CUSK ONE, was used in the program. Mohole inadvertently contributed to another project led by corporate sponsor Global Marine, the Jennifer Project in which the Glomar Explorer (a larger platform than Cusk) was used in an attempt to retrieve a Soviet submarine. Phase One was executed in spring 1961. Five holes were drilled off the coast of Guadalupe Island, Mexico, the deepest to 601 ft (183 m) below the sea floor in 11,700 ft (3,600 m) of water. This was unprecedented: not in the hole's depth but because of the depth of the ocean and because it was drilled from an untethered platform. Also, the core sample proved to be valuable; penetrating through Miocene-age sediments for the first time to reveal the lowest 13 m (44 ft) consisting of basalt. Project Mohole contracted with Global Marine of Los Angeles for the use of its oil drillship CUSS I. A consortium of Continental, Union, Superior and Shell Oil Companies, CUSS had originally developed it in 1956 as a technological test bed for the nascent offshore oil industry. CUSS I was one of the first vessels in the world capable of drilling in water depth up to 11,700 ft (3,600 m), while maintaining a position within a radius of 600 ft (180 m). Project Mohole expanded its operational range by inventing what is now known as dynamic positioning. Phase One proved that both the technology and expertise were available to drill into the Earth's mantle. It was intended as the experimental phase of the project, and did succeed in drilling to a depth of 601 feet below the sea floor. However, deeper drilling never took place. An attempted shift of operational control to the National Science Foundation proved unsatisfactory, and in short order the American Miscellaneous Society dissolved itself, phase two of the project was abandoned and the entire project was discontinued by Congress, which objected to increasing costs in 1966. The American Miscellaneous Society (AMSOC - 1952 to 1964) was formed by Gordon Lill, of the Office of Naval Research, as an organization designed to collect various Earth science research ideas that were submitted by scientists to the U.S. Navy and didn't fit into any particular category. Membership in AMSOC was open to everyone and so there was no official membership list. Prospective members could join whenever two or more members were together. The most famous project to come out of AMSOC was the Project Mohole, whose goal was to drill into the Earth's mantle. The society dissolved itself in 1964.

Poldark times - Cornish Mining - Up to your neck in it - Cornish Adit
With the success of the Poldark series by the BBC, I try and give you an insight to what it was really like underground for mine workers 200 years ago to almost modern times. Adits are driven into the side of a hill or mountain, and are often used when an ore body is located inside the mountain but above the adjacent valley floor or coastal plain. In cases where the mineral vein outcrops at the surface, the adit may follow the lode or vein until it is worked out, in this case the adit is rarely straight. The use of adits for the extraction of ore is generally called drift mining. Adits can only be driven into a mine where the local topography permits. There will be no opportunity to drive an adit to a mine situated on a large flat plain, for instance. Also if the ground is weak, the cost of shoring up a long adit may outweigh its possible advantages. This is a drainage adit in the video and the trip takes 2.5 hours. .

Mining in Pakistan and Debts?|پاکستان قرضےکیسےاداکرسکتاہے؟
Mining in Pakistan and Debts?| پاکستان قرضےکیسےاداکرسکتاہے؟ پاکستان پر بیرونی قرضوں کو کیسے ختم کیا جاسکتاہے؟ پاکستان میں کرپشن کا خاتمہ کیسے ممکن؟ پاکستان اور کرپٹ حکمران؟ For Pakistan, energy security is no longer just a desire but rather a critical imperative for its struggling economy. Pakistan, for long, has been pulled back from getting on the path towards tangible economic growth with a real sense of development, due to its high dependence on oil and gas importation. The indigenous crude oil production meets only 15 percent of the country’s total requirements, whereas the other 85 percent is met through imports. Not only did Pakistan’s oil import bill rise to $12.928 billion in 2017-18, but the country also imported Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) worth $2.123 billion. Needless to say, the huge costs entailed in these imports worsened the economy, substantially weakening the Rupee and consequently depreciating foreign exchange. Cumulatively, these costs translated into a higher current account deficit, which also precipitated a further decline in the value of the Pakistani currency. Energy insecurity can generate ripples in many sectors of the economy, deteriorating the aggregate growth pattern. Having said that, we do have a jackpot; all that requires to be done is to unlock it. The domestic oil and gas sector has enormous potential; the balance recoverable reserves of crude oil in the country are calculated to amount to more than 350.632 million barrels. The total oil resource potential is 27 million barrels with the production of 86,032 barrels per day. Furthermore, Pakistan as the largest consumer of gas has a total resource potential of 282 trillion cubic feet of shale gas with recoverable reserves estimated at 24 trillion cubic feet of conventional gas. Meanwhile, production of gas hovers at around 4 billion cubic feet per day. However, the biggest issue is a lack of will and commitment at the national level. In this context, Hydrocarbon Exploration Licensing Policy (HELP), proposed by Engineer Arshad H Abbasi represents a novel paradigm for a new cooperative framework for converting the dream of self-sufficiency into a reality. The examples of KPOGCL in Pakistan, while Norway and Brazil from around the globe have demonstrated that it can be achieved and that it is possible. Nonetheless, the new government ought to put self-sufficiency in oil and gas production at the top of its agenda. Neglecting to do this would not only further mire it into circular debt but also exacerbate the already devastating ramifications for economic as well as social solvency of our nation. It is time that Pakistan realise the importance of energy security and developed its energy policy framework and implementation road-map around it. Capitalisation of indigenous resources, both conventional and unconventional, and energy conservation and management would have to be at its heart. Solutions to problems must be holistic rather than arbitrary.

Underground In the Congress Mine
The Congress mine is centred near the north shore of Carpenter Lake, latitude 50° 52' 00", longitude 122° 43' 35", west of the mouth of Gun Creek, six kilometres northeast of Gold Bridge on Highway 40 (Figure 10a). The property was first visited in 1985. Geological mapping was completed by the writer during several visits to the property in 1986 and Ace adit was examined and sampled. The Howard adits and Lou decline surveyed in July 1988. History The property, consisting of the Congress mine and several nearby mineral prospects, is owned jointly by Levon Resources Limited and Veronex Resources Limited. The claim block includes a number of reverted Crown-granted claims including Stibnite 1-4, Snowflake fraction, Turner 1, Turner 2, Robert fraction, David fraction, Nap 1, 3 to 9 and Ace 17, 18, 20, 22, 23, 28. The history of the Congress property began about 1910 when the 'Northstar-University' vein was found, following the earlier discovery of placer gold on Gun Creek. The Congress vein was staked by E.J. Taylor and J. Shuster in 1913 and, according to Cooke et al.(1986), C.H. Allan and Associates produced a small amount of gold-antimony ore from a short adit. Congress Gold Mines Limited acquired the property from T. Turner in 1933 and developed three adit levels on the Congress zone between 1934 and 1937. During this period 940 tonnes of ore was tested at the Wayside mill; this yielded 2.58 kilograms of gold, 1.31 kilograms of silver and 38 kilograms of copper. From 1946 to 1950 Sheep Creek Gold Mines Limited managed the property and developed two additional underground levels at the Congress mine and connected the workings with an inclined shaft. In 1959 the Howard vein was discovered 900 metres west of the Congress mine. Ownership of the property passed to the Ace Mining Company Limited then, under option agreement, to Bralorne Pioneer Mines Limited from 1960 to 1964. In this period Bralorne Pioneer Mines Limited did underground work on the Howard vein and continued drifting at the Congress mine while also carrying out programs of surface and underground drilling. The Howard vein was drifted on for about 160 metres at this time, also several new mineralized zones were discovered, including the Bluff zone northeast of the Congress mine and the Paul zone on the north side of Gun Creek, 1.5 kilometres north of the previous discoveries. In 1965 the Ace Mining Company drilled the Paul zone and did other prospecting on the property. Additional exploration was undertaken by Rayrock Exploration Limited. in 1964 and Alice Arm Mining Limited in 1972. In 1975 Alice Arm was reorganized as New Congress Resources, Limited and, over the next five years completed much drilling and drifting on the Howard zone. The property was acquired by Levon Resources Limited in 1982 and under option agreement Veronex Resources Limited funded continuation of the exploration program. The principal exploration has been diamond drilling and underground development of the Howard and Lou zones in 1984 to 88, and a bioleaching pilot project in 1988 and 1989. (Due to the overall fine-grained nature of the ore and the association of gold and silver with arsenopyrite and stibnite, a 250,000-litre capacity biological leaching pilot plant was installed in the Plateau Pond area near the west boundary of the property with the collaboration of Giant Bay Resources Limited. A 600-tonne test sample for this plant was mined from the Howard and Ace workings of the mine). No further work has been done on the property because of disappointing results at a time of low metal prices. Back to top Top Description The Congress property is underlain by a panel of Pioneer pillow lavas and associated basalt feeder dikes and small cogenetic gabbro bodies (Church, 1986a; Cooke, 1986c). These rocks are bounded on the east and west by cataclastic facies of the Fergusson assemblage, including milled ribbon chert, phyllite, graphitic schist, and some marble lenses (Figure 11a). Feldspar porphyry dikes of Tertiary age are conspicuous in the mine workings as well as areas of fracturing and faulting. The ore is relatively simple consisting mainly of pyrite, arsenopyrite and stibnite in discontinuous northerly trending quartz veins accompanied by carbonate alteration.
How Global Warming Is Transforming Greenland's Economy (2014)
Inuit Goldrush (2014): The Greenlandic village of Narsaq boasts one of the world's largest deposits of rare earth elements. With enough ore to mine for over 100 years, could this industrial El Dorado be the country's key to independence?

Ib Laursen, Operations Manager for Greenland Minerals and Energy, is in little doubt about the place of resource industries in the country's economic advancement. With more than 950 million tonnes of valuable ore cached within the mountainside, and 30 international firms jostling for position in the queue for access, Narsaq is sitting on a goldmine. But not everybody shares the optimism. "We need professional fishermen. Rocks don't breed, and when there are none left, then what will we do?" Isaac is one of only three fishermen still active in the region. His anxiety is echoed in parts of the community, concerned that mining could destroy the environment and traditional ways of life. But as Greenland seeks greater financial autonomy from Denmark, could such resistance be at the cost of independence? "If they don't open it up, Narsaq will soon become a village for the elderly."
