Mark Jones, CEO of African Mining & Exploration (LON:AME) tells Proactiveinvestors that the company is currently finalising the details of an RC (reverse circulation) drilling programme at its major properties in the west of Mali. Mark says that this will take the company towards, what it is hoped will be, its first resource. On the Mali question..Mark explains that what the country now needs is a strong government, but in the meantime, existing producers are mostly now producing more gold in the country than they have ever done.

Africa, the world’s largest producer of diamonds, has produced half of all diamonds. With 1.9 billion carats produced, the continent has mined about $158 billion worth of the gems. Diamond mining in Africa dates back to 1866, when the child of a Dutch farmer found a 22-carat diamond in what is now South Africa — that was the first known diamond discovered on the continent. When an 83-carat diamond was found three years later, it drew a rush of miners into South Africa. The first four mines in Africa were dug in 1871 in areas around the Vaal River. The largest was Colesberg Kopje, nicknamed “the Big Hole,” in Kimberly. The wealth produced by these mines triggered industrial development, with modern shipping ports, along with travel and communication networks springing up throughout the subcontinent. That ultimately lead to two wars between the Dutch settlers (known as the Boers) and the British from 1880 to 1881 and 1899 to 1901. Over the next century, Africa continued to lead the world in diamond production.

South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

On a trip to the ruby mining area around Montepuez, we heard about Gemfields plans at Montepuez Ruby Mine, and visited their ambitious project to farm chickens in partnership with a local women's association. We were also able to see Mustang's Montepuez Ruby Project and exploration pits at Metals of Africa's concession as well as visit areas where garimpieros (unlicensed miners) were digging. Gem quality ruby now being found at these newer sites indicates that the boundaries of this large deposit are yet to be established.

Today's adventure is our terrifying explore of this huge abandoned Silver, Zinc and Lead mine in the heart of Wales. This is considered one of the most important non-ferrous mines in Wales and evidence shows mining activity since the bronze age. It's a long one folks, I filmed the complete explore of the one portal that we got into but I'm sure there's other portals and shafts that I never found because it's a massive site in between and inside the mountains, maybe a return visit is on the cards. I also didn't film any of the outside of this site but there were many old mine buildings and workings around, I did take still shots though, which you will be able to see on my instagram page.

While coming back down from some mines way up north, Paul and I stopped at the abandoned Admiral Aaron Ward Mine and walked down its 4100-foot inclined entry tunnel into the subterranean workings. Once we reached the bottom, we found wide tunnels branching off in all directions in this former silver, copper, and zinc mine. During our five-hour exploration, we found one stope that was unbelievably huge and utterly mind-blowing! We also found deep, flooded areas and bottomless shafts. Various colorful mineral growths and crystal growths appear throughout the mine's tunnels, too. The miners' workshop was still full of spare parts, tools, and other artifacts. Another interesting find was the miners' refuge chamber. A freshwater spring deep in the mine provided us with some of the cleanest and best-tasting water I've ever drank! After five hours of exploring, we decided to call it quits and began the long, arduous hike back up the 4100-foot, inclined entry tunnel to the surface. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

With shocking evidence now uncovered, Zimbabwe's diamond trade faces suspension. "We were told here are the guns, sitting in the truck, do you want to stay?" says Andrew Cranswick, CEO of the mining company who owns the rights to mine diamonds in Marange. After his company was evicted, the Marange fields were opened up to the people and tens of thousands of Zimbabweans came to dig, paying the police a commission. Yet the police didn't always play fair - "$15 million worth of diamonds were confiscated", says one former miner and soon the police were replaced by Mugabes own military. "Mugabe needed a way to buy the loyalty of the army" says Ken Roth, "the military were ordered to kill". In the first week of November, helicopter gunships launched a massacre on the Marange diamond fields. Evidence has been collected of 200 deaths. Those who weren't killed were raped or crippled. "They told us if we wanted to go home we had to sleep with the men", says one woman, "the soldiers watched and laughed". Next month, the Kimberley process, the international body charged with stopping trade in conflict diamonds, will decide whether Zimbabwe should be suspended. Yet with many Western governments involved in Zimbabwe's diamond trade, a former delegate of the Kimberley process believes this deadly business may yet be protected.

With this new field documentary I would like to invite you to follow us on the recent field expedition had in the West Pokot area in the west of Kenya (near the border with Uganda). In this area is located a very remote ruby deposit, one of the rare marble type ruby deposits in East Africa. This deposit was discovered since the 1950's probably when the British built a road along the border, but due to security issues I was never be able to visit it until very recently. Few years ago, while still working at GIA in Bangkok I met Christine Muthama who had some stones from the newly formed "Pokot Gems Ltd" company. We wrote a short article on rubies reportedly from that area that was published in Gems & Gemology and since then I discussed with Mme Muthama to visit Pokot... This is what we did! I was very happy to do that with my old friend Dr. Cedric Simonet, probably the most knowledgeable geologist regarding gemstones deposits in Eastern Africa, two friends: Erica Courtney, a designer from USA and Angir, a Chinese gemologist working in Japan and of course my field cameraman Didier Barriere Doleac from Nomads Media (as without him you could not see this video). Together we were not only able to collect on site, at the mine, some interesting reference samples for the "Bahrain Institute for Pearls & Gemstones" (DANAT) reference collection, but also we were able to find another old ruby deposit, never mentioned on any article, but that Cedric as some knowledge about. Interestingly scouting the area with Google Earth we found out that the definition was quite good and found some indications of digging. Going onsite we could confirm that it was indeed a ruby deposit studying the mining pit and the waste around the former mining site. No gem quality material, but two more spots on my map.

The area where this mine is located is absolutely thick with mining history – some of the densest concentration of gold mines and historical mining activity that I am aware of… There isn’t a rock in this mining district that wasn’t turned over by a miner at some point in the past 175 years. So, it is no surprise that we discovered a lot going on at this site and, as the afternoon progressed, this mine just kept revealing more and more. It’s kind of funny as when we arrived in the morning, we expected this to just be a quickie mine explore. However, it took us until after dark! And, undoubtedly, we missed some mining equipment and other features in the darkness. Inside the more modern haulage adit seen in this video, I was disappointed by that stope that had collapsed down the ore chute as we were off to a very promising start. If the reports I have seen are correct, there are a couple of thousand feet of workings left to explore beyond that caved section. The reports also list this as both a lode and a placer mine. I didn’t see any evidence of lode activity in what we were able to see, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t run across a vein deeper into the mountain. They may have also been referencing work across the creek that you’ll see in the third video (3 of 3) in this series. That caved section was placer though... I’m always talking about how much less stable the placer mines are and that is further evidence of what I’m talking about. There wasn’t a pebble out of place on my whole walk in through the haulage adit. But, what was caved? The underground placer deposit. I hope those of you with lode mines to explore in nice, dry climates appreciate how fortunate you are! It was quite the treat to see that compressor room and bunkhouse (I’m assuming that’s what the upstairs was) still relatively intact and with all of that gear inside... I’d imagine there are still plenty of treasures hidden under all of those boards from the buildings that collapsed. However, neither of us felt like spending the whole afternoon moving boards around and dodging rusty nails – especially when there was still so much more to see. ***** 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. But, you know what? We enjoy 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.

Coincidentally, the adits we discovered during this full day of exploring were progressively older. So, they make for an interesting walk back in time that happens to be in chronological order. The adit we explored in the first video was last worked in the 1960s or 1970s, while the adit seen in this video was likely last worked around the 1930s. I say “likely” because with many of these older mines, it is difficult – and often impossible – to find detailed records. Often, there are no records at all to be found in the public domain. As you undoubtedly observed, the adit I explored in this video was not the most pleasant one and, as such, I imagine you will not be shocked to learn that it did not make it onto my “Favorite Abandoned Mines” list. This one really ticked a lot of the “unpleasant” boxes. Bad air? Check. Deep, sucking mud? Check. Unstable rock overhead? Check. Difficult to access? Check. That orange, sucking mud is something that I associate with underground placer mines as that is the only place I have seen it. Many viewers have compared it to orange mud that B.C. Frank encountered in Anyox. However, there are some significant differences. Perhaps the most significant is that this “mine mud” is very dense. It will not wash away unless it is subjected to intense pressure. Furthermore, it develops a hard crust on the surface – almost like a rust. One can almost, but not quite, walk on this crust. Instead, one has to push through it like an icebreaker, which is quite a lot of work when one is also fighting through the sucking mud underneath. Some underground placer mines are so choked with this mud that it is not possible to proceed beyond a wall of mud that has formed. To confuse matters more, however, some underground placer mines don’t have this mud at all. This “mine mud” flows down from the underground placer deposits (ancient river channels), but it is not clear to me why some sections of the ancient river channels produce this awful mud in mines and other sections do not produce it at all. I am talking about mines that are very close to each other too, not in different mining districts. Contrary to how it might look in the video, I was not using a candle to illuminate the haulage adit. Instead, I was using two bright (1000+ lumens each) lights with fresh batteries. That dark rock just swallows up the light to an incredible degree. Fortunately, the adits that Mr. McBride located across the creek while I was slopping around in the mud with this adit – which will be seen in the third (and final) video in this series - more than make up for the setbacks at these first two adits. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

How do gold companies finance themselves? The global mining industry is very capital intensive and requires hundreds of millions to take a project from exploration to production. This means that companies must be good at raising capital to develop projects and create shareholder value. The four key sources of financing are; - Equity financing; common shares & flow-through shares - Internal funds - Debt financing - Alternative financing through royalty or streaming agreements Skip ahead to the mining stage that interests you; 9:25 - Exploration Stage 28:50 - Evaluation Stage 47:15 - Development Stage 58:40 - Production Stage In this video, I cover some important question related to the financial side of the mining industry. - How do junior exploration companies finance themselves? - What are royalty agreements? What is a Net smelter royalty? - What are streaming agreements? - What are the trade-offs between royalty and streaming agreements? - What is the capital pool company program and how has it helped the mining industry? - What are earn-in JVs and how can they help junior exploration companies?

Mining exploration in general is a money-losing enterprise: only one in 1,000 projects succeeds. However, according to economic geologist Brent Cook, you just need a couple of big hits to make up for it. He combines 30 years of experience in geology, exploration, and consulting as the co-editor of Exploration Insights. Cook argues that you can greatly improve the odds with a bit of due diligence and basic knowledge of geology to weed out projects with fatal flaws.

Of all the minerals dug out of the ground, diamonds have a special allure, and Australia produces some of the most sought-after stones in the world. But the nation's sole operating diamond mine is on the verge of closure. That's led to a flurry of exploration to find a new diamond deposit.

(www.abndigital.com) Although under-explored, Africa hosts about 30% of the planet's mineral reserves. Due to lower ore grades, increased depth of mining, political instability and rising production costs, Africa's mining output has been steadily falling. With miners' earnings beginning to recover, we may see more exploration activities. Joining us now on mineral and commodity exploration in Africa is Junior Potgieter, Operations Manager at GeoScientific & Exploration Services.

Thayer Lindsley Award for international mineral discoveries The Ivanhoe Mines Kamoa Discovery Team is the recipient of this year’s Thayer Lindsley Award for international mineral discoveries. The team is receiving the award for discovery of the Kamoa Copper Deposit in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The deposit is located in the Central African Copperbelt on the western edge of the Katangan basin, approximately 25 km west of the Kolwezi district. The deposit is a new and blind grassroots discovery in an area previously written off by other explorers because of its lack of Mines Series rocks, as well as of surface mineralization. A 2013 independent mineral resource estimate ranked Kamoa as Africa's largest high-grade copper discovery and the world's largest, undeveloped high-grade copper discovery. The Kamoa Discovery Team was led by Dr. David Broughton, Executive Vice President of Exploration at Ivanhoe Mines, and Thomas Rogers, Director of Exploration, African Mining Consultants. In addition, the team included David Edwards, Geology Manager, Kamoa Project, Ivanhoe Mines; Dr. Douglas Haynes, Director, Douglas Haynes Discovery Pty. Ltd.; Dr. Ross McGowan, formerly of African Mining Consultants and currently CEO, Armada Exploration Ltd.; and Steven McMullan, P. Geo., Site Manager at Ivanhoe Mines’ Kipushi Project, and Principal Geoscientist, African Mining Consultants.
