North Yorkshire's potash mine | ITV News
In the next 30 years, the global population is expected to increase by more than 30 per cent, which raises the issue of how to feed people around the world. Part of the solution is believed to be in North Yorkshire. Stretching out under the North Sea is the world's largest source of a vital crop fertiliser called Polyhalite. Sirius Minerals, which has its headquarters in Scarbrough, is building a mine close to Whitby to reach the polyhalite, which will then be piped underground to Wilton on Teesside to be exported. It's one of the biggest mining projects in the world and work at both ends of the tunnel is well underway • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/

caravan trip 2007 Halls Creek (2005 population est. 1300) is a small town situated in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. It is located between the towns of Fitzroy Crossing and Warmun (Turkey Creek) on the Great Northern Highway. Functions The town functions as a support centre for remote cattle stations in the area. For tourists it is the only sizeable town for 600 km on the Great Northern Highway. The town is a major welfare hub for the local indigenous population. Halls Creek is also the administration centre for Halls Creek Shire Council. Tourism For tourists, there are several nearby attractions such as: the China Wall old Halls Creek the Duncan Road Wolfe Creek crater, 200 km to the south on the Tanami Road Purnululu National Park (the Bungle Bungles), 120km to the north. History In the early 20th century, Halls Creek moved 12km west from its original location in 1949 due to flooding in the older town. In those times it was a gold mining town, named after Charles Hall who in 1885 found the alluvial gold that led to the Kimberley gold rush, but gold mining has since ceased. Indigenous population It is home to the indigenous Jaru (Djar-u) and Kija (gKid-ja) peoples as well as some Tjurabalan peoples from the desert to the south of the town. They represent over 60% of the town's population. In 2006, The West Australian newspaper has run a series of articles highlighting the awful state of the Halls Creek indigenous population. The attention received may prompt some action to improve the situation; however, Halls Creek is by no means unusual in this regard, with tens and hundreds of similarly awful indigenous towns and communities in the Pilbara, Kimberley, and other parts of the state. This article provides more information on this sensitive topic. wikipedia

Australia's economy needs big investment in innovation, experts say
When Malcolm Turnbull took over as Prime Minister he promised that, with the mining boom over, innovation would be the key to unlocking jobs and growth. But, two-and-a-half years later, those responsible for commercialising new ideas say Australia is being left behind with sustained cuts to higher education and low business investment in research and development. One of the Government's own advisers says Australia is comparable to third world economies reliant on old industries like banking and mining, against countries like the US where the top companies are all high-tech. Chief economics correspondent Emma Alberici reports.

Mining Capital's Alastair Ford on the risk and rewards at Sirius Minerals
Mining Capital's Alastair Ford talks through the investment case for Sirius Minerals PLC (LON:SXX). The company has, it says, at Woodsmith, the largest and highest grade polyhalite project anywhere in the world - a total of 2.66bn tonnes to be exact, and that across only 7% of the ground Sirius has under licence. ''It's a significant project on many levels - local employment, income, engineering ... and of course it's an interesting experiment in the sale and marketing of Polyhalite too because that's broadly speaking a new product''. ''There's been for some time a significant amount of scepticism about whether it's going to work and Sirius has done a lot of persuading of influential people to convince them it will ... and on the whole the jury is out''.
The new battle for North Pole supremacy - VPRO documentary
Why is the North Pole of interest for superpowers? What is it, that makes the North Pole so attractive that superpowers fight for supremacy? Climate change on the North Pole has not only caused more water, but also the possibility for ships to sail on new routes. A documentary that shows how the North pole has become a new battlefield, where superpowers look for economic growth and the Arctic people try to survive. The ice in the North Pole is melting due to climate change, which also means that waterways are released in the summer that leads ships to raw materials that could not be extracted in earlier days. A run of superpowers on nickel and gold mines has sharpened geopolitical relationships and has major consequences for the lives of the Arctic people. A report in pictures, by photographers Kadir van Lohuizen and Yuri Kozyrev. The Russian photographer Yuri Kozyrev and the Dutch photographer Kadir van Lohuizen traveled to the North Pole. The two photographers explored different areas. They recorded their journey in photos and on video and talked to the people they met along the way. Van Lohuizen visited the western part of the Arctic, where he meets the original inhabitants of the North Pole - the Inuit. They take him on a whale hunt and explain how the melting ice threatens their livelihood. He also travels with the Canadian army and joins the US Coast Guard at the North Pole, which monitors the shipping routes that have resulted out of the melting ice. Military presence is growing as in the Arctic the battle for oil, gas, and minerals has begun. And this goes fast: especially the Russian part of the Arctic is changing at lightning speed. Ports are being built at a rapid pace and the Russians are building ice breakers in large numbers, so that container ship is able to sail on this new shipping routes in three weeks from China to Norway. Photojournalist Yuri Kozyrev visits this fast-changing Russian Part: he sees the gas fields of the Russian gas company Gazprom, which are exploited with the latest techniques and he visits the Marine Academy, where young Russian recruits are trained. The boys, sometimes children, are taught about the climate and the handling of a gun, while they sing about the hero role they will play in the future. Gazprom and the nomadic Nenets, who has been traveling through the polar regions for many years, are on the same ground. But this co-existence seems to be no longer balanced, as the melting North Pole offers economic opportunities but also threatens the lives of the original inhabitants. And the lives of everyone on this planet. What seems far away and out of sight is in fact really essential for mankind, then the North Pole ice functions as a kind of air conditioning for the Earth. Not doing anything is not an option. With Kadir van Lohuizen (photojournalist), Yuri Kozyrev (photojournalist) and David Barber (climate scientist). This documentary was created by the photographers Kadir Van Lohuizen and Yuri Kozyrev, with support from The Carmignac Foundation. This fund supports research-oriented photo-journalistic projects with regard to human rights violations and the impact of climate change.

[Wikipedia] Brockman 2 mine
The Brockman 2 mine is an iron ore mine located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, 60 kilometres north-west of Tom Price. It should not be confused with Rio Tinto's Brockman 4 mine, also in the area.The mine is fully owned and operated by Rio Tinto Iron Ore and is one of twelve iron ore mines the company operates in the Pilbara. In the calendar year 2009, the combined Pilbara operations produced 202 million tonnes of iron ore, a 15 percent increase from 2008. The Pilbara operations accounted for almost 13 percent of the world's 2009 iron ore production of 1.59 billion tonnes.The Hamersley Range, where the mine is located, contains 80 percent of all identified iron ore reserves in Australia and is one of the world's major iron ore provinces.The mine is serviced by the Brockman Airport.

Australian Property Downturn 2018
Australian house prices have been in the news again, and not for the right reasons. Experts warn that due to factors such as unemployment, underemployment, lacklustre wage growth, weak house prices, and the looming threat of interest rate rises, mortgage stress is set to surge. Rates of mortgage default are highest in the mining states of Western Australian and Queensland. 15 of the top 20 worst performing suburbs are in these two states. Credit ratings agency Moody’s suggests that the situation will only get worse as more and more interest-only loans are converted to principal and interest loans over the next 12 months. The Australian dream of owning your own home is looking less and less likely for a growing number of Australians. Martin North, of Digital Finance Analytics, makes a comparison with the current state of the Australian housing market with that of Ireland in 2007 just as its property market started to crash. All current metrics indicate that Australia is in a massive property bubble — metrics such as high debt-to-income and price-to-rent ratios. Australia currently has very low mortgage interest rates, and up until recently, very loose lending policies, which ultimately encouraged speculative buying. Many newly constructed apartments are simply not selling. A lot of property developers are now in financial difficulty. Interest rates can’t get any lower, so only have one direction they can go — up. The number of interest-only loans in Australia is staggering. Over the next few years, a total of about $360 billion of interest-only loans will roll over to interest plus principal, which equates to higher repayments for borrowers. We’re setting ourselves up for one massive fall. Although, the Reserve Bank of Australia may not increase domestic rates any time soon, the big Australian banks all borrow offshore. The US, for example, has raised its rates eight times in the last few years. Australian banks will be forced to raise their mortgage rates regardless of the RBA’s movements — and that’s exactly what we have seen over the last month or two. Currently, there are also quite low rental yields. That is, properties are relatively expensive to buy compared to renting them. This is often a sign that the market is overvalued. If people cannot afford to buy the house they are currently renting, then something is askew. Sydney University economics professor Colm Harmon stated that this situation cannot persist long-term without something giving way. About 40% of first-home buyers are unable to get finance due to recent restrictions imposed by Australia’s regulators. If you go back two or three years, almost everybody could get a loan. Australians are now one of the most indebted people in the world at about 200% of household income. Last week, Sydney house prices fell for the 12th consecutive month. Is this the beginning of a slow deflation, or a gigantic burst? Many forecasters predict a reduction of 10% as a “base case”. What if the declining prices result in a sudden halt to the housing construction boom? Lots of people will lose their jobs increasing the number of housing loan defaults. This will lead to forced sales adding more pressure on an already struggling market. In this sort of situation, many people will be left with debts greater than the value of their property. Homeowners typically will do anything to keep a roof over their heads, but investors are more likely to sell when they see signs of a downturn in order to minimise their losses. Some companies are already preparing themselves for a property crash. AustralianSuper, Australia’s largest superannuation fund, is changing its rules so that members cannot suddenly withdraw investments from their property fund in the event of a downturn. Whatever happens, we certainly need to reconsider the Australian dream of owning our own home.

Galena Mining's Abra Project has 'one of the highest-grade concentrates in the world'
Chief executive of Galena Mining Ltd (ASX:G1A) Ed Turner talks to Proactive Investors about the scoping study recently completed on the company's flagship Abra Base Metals Project in Western Australia. Even based on long-term metal price estimates well below today's market spot prices, the project represents an NPV of almost $400 million, with an IRR of 61%. "We're getting 95-96% recovery, which is very good, and the [lead] concentrate grades are probably going to average about 75%, but we're even getting some better results than that. So that's one of the highest-grade concentrates in the world, and does make it very attractive to the smelters. Our high-grade resource, which we announced earlier in the year is about 11 million tonnes at 10% lead, within a much larger 36 million tonnes at 7.3% lead, so we have a lot of different production scenarios we can look at there," says Turner. Pre-feasibility works are well-advanced, with the Abra project PFS due to be completed in September. Mine design engineering studies, as well as infill drilling to convert inferred resources to indicated status, are happening now. Production from Abra is slated for late 2020 or early 2021. Meanwhile, diamond drilling at regional copper and other base metals prospects is expected to produce assay results that confirm Galena Mining has doubled the footprint of known mineralisation there.

Inside Juvenile Detention
As recently as 2005, the state of Virginia had eight centers like Bon Air Juvenile Correctional Facility, housing more than 1,300 delinquent youth. But by 2017, after a series of reforms, that number had shrunk to one. “It's not that you can't do good work here,” said Andy Block, who, since 2014, has served as the juvenile-justice department’s director. “But the place itself and the design and the size and the location are barriers to doing good work.” Block and others are working to close Bon Air and replace it with something that reflects the juvenile justice reforms that have taken hold in Virginia and across the country—a system that once focused on confinement is now dedicated to rehabilitation. In recent years, more than 70 percent of Virginia's juvenile inmates were rearrested within three years of their release.* Read more on The Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/projects/juvenile-justice/ *This documentary originally stated that Virginia has one of the highest recidivism rates in the country. This characterization was based on incomplete data. The documentary also stated that the three-year rearrest rate for current Bon Air inmates would be 74 percent. This was the rate for former juvenile inmates in Virginia in 2014. We regret the errors.

Indonesia says at least three killed, 60 feared buried in illegal mine collapse
Indonesian officials said on Wednesday dozens of rescuers were using spades and ropes to dig out more than 60 people who were feared buried by the collapse of an illegal gold mine on the island of Sulawesi that killed at least three. Rescuers said they could hear the voices of some of those trapped in makeshift mining shafts in a muddy hillside in the Bolaang Mongondow area of North Sulawesi province and believed many were still alive.

Australian Vanadium reveals PFS & maiden ore reserve for 'globally unique' project
Australian Vanadium Ltd (ASX:AVL) managing director Vincent Algar speaks to Proactive Investors about today's announced maiden ore reserve and final Pre Feasibility Study (PFS) on the Gabanintha Vanadium Project in Western Australia. The results follow on from a base case released in September. Explaining the importance of having a life of mine mass recovery to concentrate of over 60%, Algar says, "This is one of the most exciting things about the Gabanintha deposit overall. It yields something that vanadium, titanium deposits around the world don't yield; which is when we use magnetic separation to pull the magnetite out of the ore, we get a very large mass pool, and that means we can make the plant slightly smaller than others have to around the world... so there's a certain uniqueness about Gabanintha, and we've been able to translate this into the process design and into the mine schedule."

Will Lithium Shortage Kill The EV Industry?
First I thought we should talk about where you can find lithium today. The truth is it’s likely on your body right now, you may be holding it in your hand, or you’re looking directly at it. But you might be surprised to know it’s also used in things like tools, aerospace equipment, military applications and backup storage for our Electric grid. And of course, Tesla’s and other electric cars // Looking to buy a Tesla S or X? Use our referral code and instantly receive $1,000 off and Free Supercharging! (limited) Get Started - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9QapXri9iY // It is so good for batteries that 39% of all Lithium production goes towards battery production. So what is Lithium anyway? Lithium itself is a soft, silvery-white alkali metal. It is the lightest metal and the lightest solid element. Like all alkali metals, lithium is highly reactive and flammable. So this isn’t something you’d want just laying around your house. Especially if you have a toddler running around like I do... So Lithium is a metal so it must be mined right, like copper? Well, not exactly. It’s true lithium can be mined from rocks but mostly it’s found in brine pools. Lithium is also present in seawater but there aren’t any commercially viable methods of extracting it at this time As an aside when you see a meme floating around the internet showing a giant mine where lithium comes from, it’s a lie. As of 2017, most of the world's lithium production is in South America, where lithium-containing brine is extracted from underground pools and concentrated by solar evaporation. The standard extraction technique is to evaporate water from brine. Each batch takes from 18 to 24 months. With so much demand for lithium it’s a fair question to ask... Are Tesla and others doomed? Well…not really The US Geological Survey’s report for 2017 shows that "Worldwide lithium production increased by an estimated 12% in 2016 in response to increased lithium demand for battery applications. Production in Argentina increased nearly 60%, primarily owing to a new brine operation; the leading Argentine producer also increased production. A producer in Chile reported that its production rose by 20%. Two small Australian spodumene operations, one new and one inactive since 2013, planned to begin commercial concentrate production by year end. Worldwide lithium production capacity was reported to be 49,400 tons in 2015; capacity utilization was estimated to be 64% in 2015 and 71% in 2016. Based on average projections by producers and industry analysists of about 14% growth worldwide, consumption of lithium in 2016 is projected to be about 37,800 tons, up from 33,300 tons in 2015. So the trend is going up, but when you look at the overall picture you find that owing to continuing exploration, lithium resources have increased substantially worldwide. Identified lithium resources in the United States, from continental brines, geothermal brines, hectorite, oil field brines, and pegmatites, have been revised to 6.9 million tons. Identified lithium resources in other countries have been revised to approximately 40 million tons. Identified lithium resources in Argentina and Bolivia are about 9 million tons each and in major producing countries are Australia, more than 2 million tons; Chile, more than 7.5 million tons; and China, approximately 7 million tons. Canada’s lithium resources are about 2 million tons. Congo (Kinshasa), Russia, and Serbia have resources of about 1 million tons each. Lithium resources in Brazil and Mexico are approximately 200,000 tons each and Austria, and Zimbabwe have more than 100,000 tons each. Beyond just producing more lithium, companies like Tesla have focused on creating a closed-loop battery recycling program since as early as 2011. So while Tesla drivetrains are rated to go 1M miles, and the batteries will likely last to last north of 350K miles, once the cars do get turned in, Tesla isn’t going to just throw away those precious metals. If you’re an investor in companies reliant on lithium for their batteries such as Tesla, Apple, Google, or any other company making electronics today, you shouldn’t worry about the supply chain. We’ve got a long road ahead of us and probably by the time we need to worry about a shortage of Lithium we’ll have a new way to make batteries that are even better. // Join Our Community on Patreon!
