Come check it out Newman information & tourist attractions are brought to you by World Holiday Destination. Book your Newman Accommodation Newman is a town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It is located about 1,186 kilometres (737 mi) north of Perth, and 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) north of the Tropic of Capricorn. It can be reached by the Great Northern Highway. In the 2006 Australian census, its population was 4,245. Newman is a modern mining town, with suburban-style homes contrasting with the surrounding reddish desert. The Hickman Crater is 35 kilometres (22 mi) north of Newman. Commercial area ============ Typical of company towns, Newman is laid out with a core, where shopping and hotels are located, surrounded by residential areas, with more industrial activities on the outskirts. There is one shopping mall in the town, two shopping plazas, three hotels, and three bars/restaurants outside of those contained in the hotels. One public outdoor pool serves the town's population. Transport ============ A privately owned railway, the Mount Newman railway, was constructed linking it to Port Hedland which itself was upgraded to handle shipment of the ore to the world market. On 21 June 2001 a train 7.353 km (4.569 mi) long, comprising 682 ore cars and eight locomotives made the Newman—Port Hedland trip and is listed as the world's longest ever train. The ore trains are typically over 2 km long. Newman is also a service town to the nearby mining settlements like Tom Price and Paraburdoo. The town is served by Newman Airport. Architecture ========== Being founded in the 1960s, Newman's architecture reflects the modernist styles of that decade and the next, being predominantly functional and devoid of detail or embellishment. As the town was founded and built by a steel company, the majority of buildings use a steel frame construction. This applies to the suburban style homes themselves, most of them being two prefabricated halves inserted together into a steel I-section frame, the columns of which are left exposed on the exterior of the home. This construction method serves not only to showcase the company's product, but also gives strong resistance to cyclone winds which can affect the region from time to time. For this same reason, most houses are elevated from the ground by a few steps. Many houses also have large air-conditioning units situated next to them to provide adequate cooling against the very hot summer temperatures. Climate ========== Newman has an arid climate, with very hot summers and mild winters. The temperature reaches or exceeds over 38°C almost every day in the summer. On 15 January 1998, the temperature reached an all-time recorded high of 47.0°C. Precipitation is sparse, but the influx of monsoonal moisture in the summer, which generally begins in December and lasts until April, raises humidity levels and can cause occasional heavy storms. Winter months are mild to warm, with daily high temperatures ranging from the 20°C to 26°C (18-22°C), and low (nighttime) temperatures rarely dipping below 6°C.

Pilbara Bushfires 16 Nov 2018 Driving from Perth to Broome, we stayed at Nullagine Thursday night where the sky lit up with lightening storms all around. We headed to Marble Bar Friday morning, turning onto Bamboo Creek Road around 9am which would lead us to the Boreline Road for our drive home. We could see what looked like spot fires in the distance. As we approached the Boreline Road the fires appeared to have consumed this area as smoke was filled throughout and we could not see the uplifts, and sure enough the Boreline Road was closed so we turned onto Shay Gap Road as this road was open. Driving this road we could see so many spot fires in the distance, the fires appeared to be everywhere in seperate patches. We then approached a roadside fire, as in the video, with fires on both sides of the road. Hubby was not concerned as has experienced driving through fires previously, however my daughter and I were very worried how deep this fire was as we could not see for a short time. We made it through safely and eventually came out onto the Great Northern Highway just before Pardoo Roadhouse. Again there were no road closure signs on the Great Northern Highway at Pardoo Roadhouse so we continuted onto Sandfire Roadhouse as there were many fires surrounding Pardoo Roadhouse and it would have been too dangerous to stay. There were many more fires along the way with roadside areas already burnt. We arrived at Sandfire Roadhouse with all trucks and cars parked up for the night and sure enough a road closure sign for those heading south. We realised how lucky we were to get through as we had no radio or phone alerting us of how bad the fires were in our remote location, nor were we aware of the road closures until we came closer to The Great Northern Highway by then there was no turning back as the fires were close to Pardoo Roadhouse and the fires appeared to be worse heading south to Port Hedland. We have 2 GPS devices in our car as one is detailed off road with topographical maps and the other is the latest state of the art GPS with traffic warnings which we received whilst we were in Perth, however we did not receive any fire warnings or road closures on our GPS systems via satellite regarding the Pilbara fires or road closures. If we were aware of the road closures whilst we were on Bamboo Creek Road we would have turned around and headed back to Marble Bar, however we had no knowledge at this time. We were unable to stay at Sandfire as the rooms were fully booked so we continued driving home to Broome. We still came across more spot fires but again the road was open from Sandfire to Broome, we eventually made it home safely.

The 64th Sydney Film Festival – 7-18 June 2017 The Indigenous people of the Pilbara battle to preserve Australia's 40,000-year-old cultural heritage from the ravages of a booming mining industry. In the heart of Western Australia's Pilbara region sits the Burrup Peninsula (or Murujuga). It is host to the largest concentration of rock art in the world, dating back over 40,000 years. It's a dramatic and ancient landscape so sacred that some parts shouldn't be looked upon at all, except by Traditional Owners. Waves of industrialisation and development threaten sites all over the region, but the people of the Pilbara - forever connected to country, forever responsible – are fighting back. Documenting the rock art, recording sacred sites and battling to get their unique cultural heritage recognised, 'digitised' and celebrated.

Description 1.Wittenoom,Western Australia Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The area around Wittenoom was mainly pastoral until the 1930s when mining began in the area. By 1939, major mining had begun in Yampire Gorge, which was subsequently closed in 1943 when mining began in Wittenoom Gorge. In 1947 a company town was built, and by the 1950s it was Pilbara's largest town. During the 1950s and early 1960s Wittenoom was Australia's only supplier of blue asbestos. The town was shut down in 1966 due to unprofitability and growing health concerns from asbestos mining in the area. Today, three residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas. The Wittenoom steering committee met in April 2013 to finalise closure of the town, limit access to the area and raise awareness of the risks. Details of how that would be achieved were to be determined but it would likely necessitate removing the town's remaining residents, converting freehold land to crown land, demolishing houses and closing or rerouting roads. By 2015 six residents remained; in 2016 the number had reduced to three. 2.Kantubek Uzbekistan Kantubek (Russian: Кантубек) was a town on Vozrozhdeniya Island (Uzbekistan) in the Aral Sea. The town is still found on maps, but is uninhabited and lies in ruins today. Kantubek used to have a population of approximately 1,500, and housed scientists and employees of the Soviet Union's top-secret Aralsk-7 biological weapons research and test site. Brian Hayes, a biochemical engineer with the United States Department of Defense's Threat Reduction Agency, led an expedition in the spring and summer of 2002 to neutralize what was believed to be the world's largest anthrax dumping grounds. His team of 113 people neutralized between 100 and 200 tonnes of anthrax over a three-month period. The cost of the cleanup operation was approximately US$5,000,000. 3.Love Canal,Niagara falls Love Canal is a neighborhood within Niagara Falls, New York. It is the site of a pollution disaster that extensively affected the health of hundreds of its residents, necessitating a Superfund cleanup operation. Originally intended in the 1890s as a planned model community, Love Canal grew and then slowly declined before being bought out in the 1940s by the Hooker Company, which dumped industrial waste in the never completed canal. In the late 1970s, Love Canal received national attention for the public health problem originating from the disposal of 22,000 barrels of toxic waste. Numerous families were displaced from their houses, which had been contaminated with chemicals and toxic waste. Many of the families suffered several health issues with common problems of high red blood cell counts and indications of leukemia. The entire neighborhood has since been demolished and a Superfund cleanup was only wrapped up in 2004. New York State Health Department Commissioner David Axelrod calls the Love Canal incident a "national symbol of a failure to exercise a sense of concern for future generations". The Love Canal incident was especially significant as a situation where the inhabitants "overflowed into the wastes instead of the other way around. 4,Picher, Oklahoma Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. This was a major national center of lead and zinc mining at the heart of the Tri-State Mining District. More than a century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic metal-contaminated mine tailings (known as chat) heaped throughout the area. The discovery of the cave-in risks, groundwater contamination, and health effects associated with the chat piles and subsurface shafts resulted in the site being included in 1980 in the Tar Creek Superfund Site by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The state collaborated on mitigation and remediation measures, but a 1996 study found that 34% of the children in Picher suffered from lead poisoning due to these environmental effects, which could result in lifelong neurological problems. Eventually the EPA and the state of Oklahoma agreed to a mandatory evacuation and buyout of the entire township. The similarly contaminated satellite towns of Treece, Kansas and Cardin, Oklahoma were included in the Tar Creek Superfund site.

Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. This town in Western Australia has the baleful reputation of being home to the greatest industrial disaster in Australian history. Wittenoom was the site of an asbestos mine, where thousands of workers and their families were exposed to lethal levels of blue asbestos 1,000 times higher than was legally regulated at the time. Though the town was shut down in 1966, today the air remains contaminated and toxic to breathe if stirred, and the state of Western Australia has the highest rate of malignant mesothelioma per capita of anywhere in the world. Today, three residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas.

Goldfields-Esperance is one of the largest regions in Western Australia and though the majority of it is sparsely populated, Kalgoorlie and Esperance are major towns supporting significant populations. Despite the regions seeming harshness and remoteness from Perth, many Goldfieds-Esperance towns were some of the earliest to be settled in the fledgling colony. Esperance was settled in 1863 for agriculture and Coolgardie spring up almost overnight when gold was discovered and was the third largest town in the colony by 1892. The gold rush of the late 1800s gave birth to many towns that flourished and faded when the gold ran out. Some such as Kanowna, Dundas and Niagara disappeared back into the dirt leaving little more broken bottles and rusting wire to signify their existence, while others manage to hang on in a greatly diminished form. For residents and travellers alike, the Goldfields-Esperance region is generally thought of as having two halves; northern and southern, demarcated with an imaginary line at Kalgoorlie. The northern is typified by desert landscapes dominated by mining, the southern sees trees and green farmland right up to granite bound coast. Being both inland and southern, the temperatures daytime vary widely. Summer months can see scorching temperatures exceeding 40°C while its not uncommon for the night to dip below 0°C. The coastal areas have particularly temperamental weather patterns with cold cloudy and warm sunny skies alternating throughout the day. Falling into an abandoned mineshaft is a real danger in the northern parts of the region as the country around Kalgoorlie, Coolgardie, Menzies, Leonora and Laverton is riddled with more than 100 years of mining activity. Most of these holes are not signposted or marked on maps but are readily identified by the white pile of quartz or greenish waste soil nearby. Perfectly normal looking ground may be honeycombed with old tunnels mere meters underground that could subside without warning. It would be prudent to tell someone where you are going if you plan to go out exploring and be careful about where you step. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Executive Technical Director and Chief Geologist, Andy Beckwith, is explaining potential investors why it can now be the right time to invest in this gold explorer. De Grey's current share price had passed the hype phase, based on the conglomerate story, and is now fully based on solid existing gold resource definitions over 1,2 Moz. In fact, the company is soon going to start bulk sampling with three conglomerate targets. This should provide further upside potential. De Grey has just been waiting for the corresponding permit, and expects to start the first 1-5 tonnes bulk samples from the conglomerate targets in the next weeks. The new gold mill at Withnell had been planned before the first gold nuggets were found on De Grey's landpackages. So, any further discovery would just be on top of the existing value. That mill will then be able to crash very large bulk samples in the amount of up to 20,000 tonnes, preferred from the most promising conglomerate targets, possibly from Loudens Patch. Before that De Grey will continue to do field work, such as orientation sampling, mapping and initial drillings. De Grey and its neighbours, such as Novo Resources, Artemis, ect, assume that the Pilbara Region in Western Australia is a fraction of the Witwatersrand mineralization trend in South Africa. 1,6 Billion gold ounces have been mined and produced there.

Wittenoom - The Blue Asbestos Ghost Town & The Residents Who Refuse To Leave Devils Dust Movie Trailer - The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0REkJuPi1zw Devil's Dust is a two-part Australian television docu-drama mini-series on the ABC which first screened in 2012. Based on journalist Matt Peacock's 2009 book Killer Company, Devil's Dust was researched and developed by producer Stephen Corvini for over two years prior to the series' production. Through the factual case of Bernie Banton, it recounts the tragedy of many Australian workers and their families afflicted with asbestosis and mesothelioma in the twentieth-century asbestos mining and processing industries. Though the extreme health risks of exposure to asbestos dust had been documented for many years, manufacturer James Hardie persisted in large-scale use of the material, aided by inadequate regulation by state health agencies. BEFORE he died an early death at 61 in 2007, Australia knew Bernie Banton as the smiling man with asbestosis who carried an oxygen bottle wherever he went. We didn't know all that much about him at first, just that he was up against the polished legal might and political clout of building materials manufacturer James Hardie. I still remember the company's name stamped on sheets of "fibro" in the local hardware yard. I had no idea the lives of thousands of Australians might have been jeopardised by asbestos in materials such as this. Or that underfelt made from shredded asbestos bags under old carpet leaked pain. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil%27s_Dust Banton seemed an ordinary bloke, a former factory worker, who soon became the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases. But, as this two-part series reveals, there was more to Banton than many of us realised as we watched the emerging folk hero on TV waging his seemingly losing battle against the corporate figureheads of the James Hardie company. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/arts/review/no-clean-sweep-as-miniseries-devils-dust-tackles-bernie-bantons-asbestos-story/story-fn9n8gph-1226513068301 Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 – 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely-recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries' products. Bernie himself suffered from asbestosis, Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease (ARPD) and then finally peritoneal mesothelioma. These conditions required him to carry an oxygen tank wherever he went. The 2009 book Killer Company details Banton's fight against James Hardie. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Banton Bernie Banton on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cjhzvzoo0sk Banton brought an action against Amaca Pty Ltd before the Dust Diseases Tribunal of New South Wales https://safetyatworkblog.com/2012/10/30/devils-dust-australian-movie-on-asbestos-and-corporate-morality/ Exposure to Deadly Asbestos, Pesticides, Illegal Dumping etc - The Dangers, Examples, Advice & Warnings - James Hardie Australia ( Mesothelioma ) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhyT97-KaZ_04EsHUmFurL1vLBSdMtzzR Devils Dust - Deadly Natural Blue Asbestos Facts & Dangers - Products of Asbestos - Mesothelioma https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eKi4_AM6l8

Super 8 Home footage of Shay Gap, Western Australia from the early 1970s. Join the Shay Gap group on Facebook! Shay Gap was an iron ore mining town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, 1574 km north north east of Perth and 188 km east of Port Hedland (Latitude 20° 31' S Longitude 120° 08' E). It was a company town, developed by Goldsworthy Mining Limited in the 1960s to mine the nearby iron ore deposits. It was formally gazetted as a town in 1972. Shay Gap was named after a pass of the same name located in the hills nearby. The name of the pass has been shown on maps since 1957, and is believed to have been named after a pearler named Robert Shea who, along with his companion Samuel Miller, was murdered by Aboriginals on the De Grey River in 1873. At its peak, the town had a population of over 850 people including families. In 1994, the town was closed by the company and most of the buildings and structures either demolished or relocated elsewhere.

It can be reached by the Great Northern Highway. With a population at the 2006 census of 5,139., it is a modern mining town with leafy suburban-style homes providing a stark contrast to the surrounding reddish arid desert area. Originally marginal cattle country, Newman was built in the 1960s with the discovery of rich iron deposits on nearby Mt Whaleback. The discovery marked the start of the resource boom in the WA in the 1970s. A privately owned railway was constructed linking it to Port Hedland which itself was upgraded to handle shipment of the ore to the world market. On June 21, 2001 a train 7.353 km (4.568 miles) long, comprising 682 ore cars and 8 locomotives made the Newman--Port Hedland trip and is listed as the worlds longest train ever . The ore trains are typically over 2 km long. Newman is also a service town to the nearby mining settlements like Tom Price and Paraburdoo. Typical of company towns, Newman is laid out with a core, where shopping and hotels are located, surrounded by residential areas, with more industrial activities on the outskirts. There is one shopping mall in the town, two shopping plazas, three hotels, and three bars/restaurants outside of those contained in the hotels. One public outdoor pool serves the town's population.

Australian innovators Dugless Machinery Company have designed & manufactured the patented Dugless 900 for mine site resource facilities. The concept has been 3 years in the development. Since full operation in December 2008 Dugless Machinery Company have been doing on site demonstration's for various large companies in the Pilbara region of Western Australia with resounding success and are looking beyond the boundaries of Australia. Every mine site has processing problem areas where manual handling is the only answer to these issues. This is where the Dugless 900 comes into the picture being the world's shortest remote controlled purpose built machine at only 560mm high. Manual handling can lead to unexpected work place injuries, costing the industry millions of dollars in payouts. Dugless takes out the human factor in this equation. Not only is it safe but it is also productive doing the work of at least 4 employees without shutting down the system thus making money and return on the investment is justified. The current video is only for demonstration purposes. More information and photo's can be forwarded via email if needed or contact our staff via the website.

It was founded by gold prospectors in 1888, and gazetted in 1890. It is the major town and administrative centre of the Shire of Yilgarn. At the 2006 census, Southern Cross had a population of 708. The town of Southern Cross is one of the many towns which run along the Mundaring to Kalgoorlie Goldfields Water Supply Scheme engineered by C. Y. O'Connor. A succession of gold rushes in the Yilgarn region near Southern Cross in 1887, at Coolgardie in 1892, and at Kalgoorlie in 1893 caused a population explosion in the barren and dry desert centre of Western Australia. It is named after the Southern Cross constellation, and the town's most significant streets are named after stars. Southern Cross is on the standard gauge railway from Perth to Kalgoorlie and beyond. The Prospector and Indian Pacific passenger trains service the town. The former narrow gauge railway reached Southern Cross on 1 July, 1894. DON PUGH CARAVAN TRIPP 2008

A plane is something you likely wouldn’t expect to see parked outside of a bar. It was that unusual sight that has residents in and around Newman, Western Australia talking. A plane is something you likely wouldn’t expect to see parked outside of a bar. However, it was that unusual sight that has residents in and around Newman, Western Australia talking. On Friday afternoon, officers were dispatched to the Newman Hotel or Purple Pub after a plane taxied down the main street and parked near the establishment. The 37-year-old man responsible for getting and leaving it there had bought the aircraft in a private sale and was taking it home when he decided to stop at the pub for a drink. There were no wings on the two-seater plane and the engine had been left running the entire time the owner was in the bar. The aircraft was later towed away from the bar. Police sergeant Mark McKenzie commented “Kids were coming home from school. It could have been very ugly. All he needed was one gust of wind ... because without the wings, it's not stable… It was a pretty stupid thing to do.” The man doesn’t have a pilot’s license and when he came down the main street, the road was filled with motorists and pedestrians. Fortunately no accidents occurred as a result. A breath test was administered to the male, but he passed. He was charged with committing an ‘act likely to endanger the life, health or safety of a person’.
