Best Documentary 2016 The World's Largest and Deepest Gold Mine In Human History Ever Made On Earth

Best Documentary 2016 The World's Largest and Deepest Gold Mine In Human History Ever Made On Earth Mponeng is a gold mine in South Africa's North West Province. It extends over 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) below the surface, and is considered to be one of the most substantial gold mines in the world. It is also currently the world's deepest mine. The trip from the surface to the bottom of the mine takes over an hour. Over 5400 metric tonnes of rock are excavated from Mponeng each day. At a cost of $19.4 per gram of gold extracted, the mine needs to recover only 10 grams of gold per ton excavated to remain profitable. The mine contains at least two gold reefs, with the deepest one metre thick. The temperature of the rock reaches 66 °C (151 °F), and the mine pumps slurry ice underground to cool the tunnel air below 30 °C (86 °F). A mixture of concrete, water, and rock is packed into excavated areas, which further acts as an insulator. Tunnel walls are secured by flexible shotcrete reinforced with steel fibers, which is further held in place by diamond-mesh netting. The endemic bacterium Desulforudis audaxviator was discovered within groundwater samples Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa. It is the provincial capital of Gauteng, which is the wealthiest province in South Africa. The city is one of the 50 largest urban agglomerations in the world. The city was named and established in 1886 following the discovery of gold on what had been a farm. The city is commonly interpreted as the modern day El Dorado due to the extremely large gold deposit found along the Witwatersrand. The name is attributed to one or all of three men involved in the establishment of the city. In ten years, the population was 100,000 inhabitants. While Johannesburg is not one of South Africa's three capital cities, it is the seat of the Constitutional Court, which has the final word on interpretation of South Africa's constitution as well as with issues in connection with constitutional matters. The city is the source of a large-scale gold and diamond trade, due to its location on the mineral-rich Witwatersrand range of hills Watch More Like: BBC Documentary,History Channel,National Geographic,Discovery,Full Documentary,hottest,hot,the,nature,japan,india documentary,Nova documentary,Asap Science,Best Documentary 2015,Documentaries,hd Documentary,Airlines,Dubai,China,India,Russia,United States,Amazing Documentary,Canada,Mysterious,Secrets,best of 2015,new documentary,life documentary,top documentary,earth documentary,stoner documentary,best documentary 2016,Much More..

Finding GOLD in BAD Spots!
 
12:11
Alright so when I say I’m finding gold in bad spots, what I am talking about is I am taking Murphy’s law into account as whoever they are, they seem to play a role in finding gold. At least for me. Finding gold should be easy so when you find a good looking spot that SHOULD hold gold, typically you would work there. Instead I decided to act as if these spots where bad to see if this Murphy fellow would turn a blind eye. How did reverse psychology work? Well watch to find out! Behind the scenes?

The park was originally designated Great Sand Dunes National Monument on March 17, 1932 by President Herbert Hoover. The original boundaries protected an area of 35,528 acres (55.5 sq mi; 143.8 km2). A boundary change and redesignation as a national park and preserve was authorized on November 22, 2000 and then established by an act of Congress on September 24, 2004. The park encompasses 107,342 acres (167.7 sq mi; 434.4 km2) while the preserve protects an additional 41,686 acres (65.1 sq mi; 168.7 km2) for a total of 149,028 acres (232.9 sq mi; 603.1 km2). The recreational visitor total was 486,935 in 2017, about 25% more than the 388,308 visitors of 2016.The park contains the tallest sand dunes in North America. The dunes cover an area of about 30 sq mi (78 km2) and are estimated to contain over 5 billion cubic meters of sand. Sediments from the surrounding mountains filled the valley over geologic time periods. After lakes within the valley receded, exposed sand was blown by the predominant southwest winds toward the Sangre de Cristos, eventually forming the dunefield over an estimated tens of thousands of years. The four primary components of the Great Sand Dunes system are the mountain watershed, the dunefield, the sand sheet, and the sabkha. Ecosystems within the mountain watershed include alpine tundra, subalpine forests, montane woodlands, and riparian zones.Evidence of human habitation in the San Luis Valley dates back about 11,000 years. The first historic peoples to inhabit the area were the Southern Ute Tribe, while Apaches and Navajo also have cultural connections in the dunes area. In the late 17th century, Don Diego de Vargas—a Spanish governor of Santa Fe de Nuevo México—became the first European on record to enter the San Luis Valley. Juan Bautista de Anza, Zebulon Pike, John C. Frémont, and John Gunnison all travelled through and explored parts of the region in the 18th and 19th centuries. The explorers were soon followed by settlers who ranched, farmed and mined in the valley starting in the late 19th century. The park was first established as a national monument in 1932 to protect it from gold mining and the potential of a concrete manufacturing business.Visitors must walk across the wide and shallow Medano Creek to reach the dunes in spring and summer months. The creek typically has a peak flow from late May to early June in most years. From July through April, the creek is usually no more than a few inches deep, if there is any water at all. Hiking is permitted throughout the dunes with the warning that the sand surface temperature may reach 150 °F (66 °C) in summer. Sandboarding and sandsledding are popular activities, both done on specially designed equipment which can be rented just outside the park entrance or in Alamosa. Visitors with street-legal four-wheel drive vehicles may continue past the end of the park's main road to Medano Pass on 22 miles (35 km) of unpaved road, crossing the stream bed of Medano Creek nine times and traversing 4 miles (6.4 km) of deep sand. Hunting is permitted in the preserve during the months of autumn, while hunting is prohibited within national park boundaries at all times. The preserve encompasses nearly all of the mountainou ...

Gold Prospecting In Beach
 
02:56
Gold prospecting is the act of searching for new gold deposits. Methods used vary with the type of deposit sought and the resources of the prospector. Although traditionally a commercial activity, in some developed countries placer gold prospecting has also become a popular outdoor recreation. Prospecting for placer gold is normally done with a gold pan or similar instrument to wash free gold particles from loose surface sediment. Once placer gold is discovered, the gold pan is usually replaced by sluices or mechanical devices to wash greater volumes of material. Discovery of placer gold has often resulted in discovery of hardrock gold deposits when the placers are traced to their sources. A placer deposit is a concentration of a natural material that has accumulated in unconsolidated sediments of a stream bed, beach, or residual deposit. Gold derived by weathering or other process from lode deposits is likely to accumulate in placer deposits because of its weight and resistance to corrosion. In addition, its characteristically sun-yellow color makes it easily and quickly recognizable even in very small quantities.

Smelting and Gold Refining Part 3: Smelting the anode slimes and recovering the gold
 
05:04
This is the third and final installment of our smelting and gold refining series. In this last video we smelt the dried anode slimes and recover a button of precious metals. *** Gold recovery clarification. I wanted to mention the copper button with the ~8 grams of gold from the first video in this series was not used in part 2 and 3. I sent the first copper button to a refiner as a test piece to see if it was something they could refine and to find out what percent they would pay on the gold recovered. This is why there is not at least 8 grams of gold recovered in this final video. The material I smelted to recover the ~2 grams of gold in part 2 and 3 was from some other sulfides from a different source. Thanks to CoinSilver800 for pointing this out.**** ***I wanted to post this response here in the description too as it brings up some good points about this process and why I am using this method to recover the gold. This is in response to a comment by Greg Burnside, thanks for the comment Greg!: Thanks for the comment and question. I guess I should clarify a few things about this process and this is the perfect post to do it. My goal is to find an scale-able process for direct smelting hardrock gold ore concentrates from gravity separation (off our shaker table specifically, but could work with any concentrate) without any roasting or pre-treatment and end up with a salable product. By this process the roasting step can be eliminated which is very environmentally hazardous, is expensive to do in larger batches, and takes a lot of expensive equipment. Secondly, by direct smelting the handling is greatly reduced, ie take your shaker table cons, mix them with some flux and collector metal and smelt, pour your product. Now I should also mention here that the copper button I ended up with in the very first video is a perfectly salable product. AAA precious metals in Portland, OR paid me 80% of the gold value in that copper button (for nuggets, placer, etc. gold they pay 95% of the assayed value on batches under 100 oz for comparison). The second two videos (electroplating and slimes smelting) were mostly just an experiment to see if they would work and to try and end up with a gold product. Didn't quite work out like I planned, but I think with some more experimenting it could be done. Even if it does work its not easily scale-able, takes a long time, produces some by-product (sulfuric acid with heavy metal ions that needs to be disposed of) and only increases the value by 15%. Each operator will have to decide if the cost of further refining from a copper button is worth it, for me personally I think sell copper with 1-10% gold content for 80% value and be happy. I think in your original post you were hinting at the a wet chemical separation of the gold/values from the concentrates, correct me if I am wrong. So to answer the root of your question: gold concentrates are very tricky for wet chemistry methods. Unlike with electronics, gold plated jewelry, etc. in hardrock cons the gold values are not always available to the leach because they are encapsulated by the sulfide crystals. The free/liberated gold in the concentrates can easily be leached, but I have seen concentrates with only a 10% recovery rate by leaching due to this encapsulation problem. Some ores will be easily leached due to their high percentage of free gold, others will need to be treated in other ways. The fire assay is the universal way ores are tested for gold values. By melting everything to a liquid and collecting the precious metals in a button a very very high percentage of the precious metals can be recovered in the assay process and that is why it is still used today on all types of ores and by all companies. I am trying to essentially re-create the assay process on a large scale so no matter what type of ore concentrate you have (free gold, sulfide matrix, or a combo of both) you can recover a high percentage of the gold with minimal cost and have a easily salable, non toxic, product with minimal work and equipment. I plan to do another smelting video in the near future with a measured amount of gold and then assay the slag, matte, and copper button so we can see exactly where the precious metals ended up and what percent recovery can be accomplished by this method. Thanks again for the questions, we all learn from each other and by asking questions/clarifying and it is a great peer review process. Thanks again!*****

The park encompasses 107,342 acres (167.7 sq mi; 434.4 km2) while the preserve protects an additional 41,686 acres (65.1 sq mi; 168.7 km2) for a total of 149,028 acres (232.9 sq mi; 603.1 km2). The recreational visitor total was 486,935 in 2017, about 25% more than the 388,308 visitors of 2016.The park contains the tallest sand dunes in North America. The dunes cover an area of about 30 sq mi (78 km2) and are estimated to contain over 5 billion cubic meters of sand. Sediments from the surrounding mountains filled the valley over geologic time periods. After lakes within the valley receded, exposed sand was blown by the predominant southwest winds toward the Sangre de Cristos, eventually forming the dunefield over an estimated tens of thousands of years. The four primary components of the Great Sand Dunes system are the mountain watershed, the dunefield, the sand sheet, and the sabkha. Ecosystems within the mountain watershed include alpine tundra, subalpine forests, montane woodlands, and riparian zones.Evidence of human habitation in the San Luis Valley dates back about 11,000 years. The first historic peoples to inhabit the area were the Southern Ute Tribe, while Apaches and Navajo also have cultural connections in the dunes area. In the late 17th century, Don Diego de Vargas—a Spanish governor of Santa Fe de Nuevo México—became the first European on record to enter the San Luis Valley. Juan Bautista de Anza, Zebulon Pike, John C. Frémont, and John Gunnison all travelled through and explored parts of the region in the 18th and 19th centuries. The explorers were soon followed by settlers who ranched, farmed and mined in the valley starting in the late 19th century. The park was first established as a national monument in 1932 to protect it from gold mining and the potential of a concrete manufacturing business.Visitors must walk across the wide and shallow Medano Creek to reach the dunes in spring and summer months. The creek typically has a peak flow from late May to early June in most years. From July through April, the creek is usually no more than a few inches deep, if there is any water at all. Hiking is permitted throughout the dunes with the warning that the sand surface temperature may reach 150 °F (66 °C) in summer. Sandboarding and sandsledding are popular activities, both done on specially designed equipment which can be rented just outside the park entrance or in Alamosa. Visitors with street-legal four-wheel drive vehicles may continue past the end of the park's main road to Medano Pass on 22 miles (35 km) of unpaved road, crossing the stream bed of Medano Creek nine times and traversing 4 miles (6.4 km) of deep sand. Hunting is permitted in the preserve during the months of autumn, while hunting is prohibited within national park boundaries at all times. The preserve encompasses nearly all of the mountainous areas north ...

Smelting and Gold Refining Part 1: Smelting sulfides and black sands to recover gold/silver
 
09:26
This is a video showing one potential way to recover the gold and silver values from the sulfide and black sand concentrates that come off our shaker table. These concentrates still can have appreciable gold values even when the free gold has been removed. When the concentrates to be smelted do not contain a sufficiently high precious metal content (between 25%-50% precious metals) a collector metal must be used to draw the precious metals to the bottom of the conical mold to ensure the recovery of the gold and silver. I have been using copper as a collector metal due to its low cost and ease of refining after smelting. I will be very interested to hear from you all what you think of the video and if you have any suggestions or tip for future smelts for higher recovery.

President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the area around Glacier Bay a national monument under the Antiquities Act on February 25, 1925. Subsequent to an expansion of the monument by President Jimmy Carter in 1978, the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) enlarged the national monument by 523,000 acres (817.2 sq mi; 2,116.5 km2) on December 2, 1980, and created Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. The national preserve encompasses 58,406 acres (91.3 sq mi; 236.4 km2) of public land to the immediate northwest of the park, protecting a portion of the Alsek River with its fish and wildlife habitats, while allowing sport hunting. Glacier Bay became part of a binational UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, and was inscribed as a Biosphere Reserve in 1986. The National Park Service undertook an obligation to work with Hoonah and Yakutat Tlingit Native American organizations in the management of the protected area in 1994. The park and preserve cover a total of 3,223,384 acres (5,037 sq mi; 13,045 km2), with 2,770,000 acres (4,328 sq mi; 11,210 km2) being designated as a wilderness area.

A Fletcher class destroyer that was sea-mined twice. The only destroyer in history to survive this. They call me "The great destroyer". Trent Reznor of the nine inch nails Year Zero track in honour of my bravery. An Arleigh-Burke class destroyer. A Minesweeper. In his free time, Ross has been known to make people happy while skies are gray. Namely 17 welsh people and a female masquerading as a Doctor. Ross has been known to enjoy fine rum, beers and a cigar. Ross has never confused himself with a toaster. Ross also has a phobia of text messaging in shorthand. Ross is a fan of Blackadder, but not really the first series. Ross is mortally afraid of Brian Blessed. Ross has once attacked Brian Blessed, but was overcome by his beard. Ross is a fan of the works of James Plunkett but not so much P.G. Wodehouse. Ross has no ambition to visit his county in Ohio. Feel free to put forth questions to Ross on his musings and inspirations. Thank you for your time.

Earth's body of soil, called the pedosphere, has four important functions: as a medium for plant growth as a means of water storage, supply and purification as a modifier of Earth's atmosphere as a habitat for organismsAll of these functions, in their turn, modify the soil. The pedosphere interfaces with the lithosphere, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, and the biosphere. The term pedolith, used commonly to refer to the soil, translates to ground stone in the sense "fundamental stone". Soil consists of a solid phase of minerals and organic matter (the soil matrix), as well as a porous phase that holds gases (the soil atmosphere) and water (the soil solution). Accordingly, soil scientists can envisage soils as a three-state system of solids, liquids, and gases.Soil is a product of several factors: the influence of climate, relief (elevation, orientation, and slope of terrain), organisms, and the soil's parent materials (original minerals) interacting over time. It continually undergoes development by way of numerous physical, chemical and biological processes, which include weathering with associated erosion. Given its complexity and strong internal connectedness, soil ecologists regard soil as an ecosystem.Most soils have a dry bulk density (density of soil taking into account voids when dry) between 1.1 and 1.6 g/cm3, while the soil particle density is much higher, in the range of 2.6 to 2.7 g/cm3.

SUMMARY ======= Cambodia ( ( listen); also Kampuchea ; Khmer: កម្ពុជា Khmer: [kam.pu.ciə]; French: Cambodge), officially the Kingdom of Cambodia (Khmer: ព្រះរាជាណាចក្រកម្ពុជា, prĕəh riəciənaacak kampuciə, IPA: [prĕəh riə.ciə.naː.caʔ kam.pu.ciə]; French: Royaume du Cambodge), is a country located in the southern portion of the Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is 181,035 square kilometres (69,898 square miles) in area, bordered by Thailand to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Vietnam to the east and the Gulf of Thailand to the southwest. The sovereign state of Cambodia has a population of over 15 million. The official religion is Theravada Buddhism, practised by approximately 95 percent of the population. The country's minority groups include Vietnamese, Chinese, Chams and 30 hill tribes. The capital and largest city is Phnom Penh, the political, economic and cultural centre of Cambodia. The kingdom is an elective constitutional monarchy with a monarch, currently Norodom Sihamoni, chosen by the Royal Throne Council as head of state. The head of government is the Prime Minister, currently Hun Sen, the longest serving non-royal leader in Southeast Asia, ruling Cambodia since 1985. In 802 AD, Jayavarman II declared himself king, uniting the warring Khmer princes of Chenla under the name "Kambuja". This marked the beginning of the Khmer Empire, which flourished for over 600 years, allowing successive kings to control and exert influence over much of Southeast Asia and accumulate immense power and wealth. The Indianised kingdom facilitated the spread of first Hinduism and then Buddhism to much of Southeast Asia and undertook many religious infrastructural projects throughout the region, including the construction of more than 1,000 temples and monuments in Angkor alone. Angkor Wat is the most famous of these structures and is designated as a World Heritage Site. After the fall of Angkor to Ayutthaya in the 15th century, a reduced and weakened Cambodia was then ruled as a vassal state by its neighbours. In 1863, Cambodia became a protectorate of France, which doubled the size of the country by reclaiming the north and west from Thailand. Cambodia gained independence in 1953. The Vietnam War extended into the country with the US bombing of Cambodia from 1969 until 1973. Following the Cambodian coup of 1970 which installed the right-wing pro-US Khmer Republic, the deposed king gave his support to his former enemies, the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer Rouge emerged as a major power, taking Phnom Penh in 1975 and later carrying out the Cambodian genocide from 1975 until 1979, when they were ousted by Vietnam and the Vietnamese-backed People's Republic of Kampuchea, supported by the Soviet Union in the Cambodian–Vietnamese War (1979–91). Following the 1991 Paris Peace Accords, Cambodia was governed briefly by a United Nations mission (1992–93). The UN withdrew after holding elections in which around 90 percent of the registered voters cast ballots. The 1997 factional fighting resulted in the ousting of the government by Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Cambodian People's Party, who remain in power as of 2018. Cambodia is a member of the United Nations since 1955, ASEAN, the East Asia Summit, the WTO, the Non-Aligned Movement and La Francophonie. According to several foreign organisations, the country has widespread poverty, pervasive corruption, lack of political freedoms, low human development and a high rate of hunger. Cambodia has been described by Human Rights Watch's Southeast Asian Director, David Roberts, as a "vaguely communist free-market state with a relatively authoritarian coalition ruling over a superficial democracy". While per capita income remains low compared to most neighbouring countries, Cambodia has one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, with growth averaging 7.6 percent over the last decade. Agriculture remains the dominant economic sector, with strong growth in textiles, construction, garments and touris ...
