04:35
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/where-does-gold-come-from-david-lunney Did you know that gold is extraterrestrial? Instead of arising from our planet’s rocky crust, it was actually cooked up in space and is present on Earth because of cataclysmic stellar explosions called supernovae. CERN Scientist David Lunney outlines the incredible journey of gold from space to Earth. Lesson by David Lunney, animation by Andrew Foerster.

Mars mineral globe
 
02:30
This unique atlas comprises a series of maps showing the distribution and abundance of minerals formed in water, by volcanic activity, and by weathering to create the dust that makes Mars red. Together the maps provide a global context for the dominant geological processes that have defined the planet's history. The maps were built from ten years of data collected by the OMEGA visible and infrared mineralogical mapping spectrometer on Mars Express. The animation cycles through maps showing: individual sites where a range of minerals that can only be formed in the presence of water were detected; maps of olivine and pyroxene, minerals that tell the story of volcanism and the evolution of the planet's interior; and ferric oxide and dust. Ferric oxide is a mineral phase of iron, and is present everywhere on the planet: within the bulk crust, lava outflows and the dust oxidised by chemical reactions with the martian atmosphere, causing the surface to 'rust' slowly over billions of years, giving Mars its distinctive red hue. The map showing hydrated minerals includes detections made by both ESA's Mars Express and by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

MoonFaker: Moon Rocks Revisited. Episode 10, SMART-1 & Lunar Minerals Different to Apollo. PART 1
 
15:13
JARRAH WHITE DOES NOT CLAIM CALCIUM IS A MINERAL. Now that that's out the way. Perhaps the most revealing evidence that the Apollo moon rocks are fake, is the fact that when the SMART-1 space probe crashed into the Lake of Excellence in 2006 a mismatch was found between Apollo samples and the real thing. ABC News reported: "By punching a 10 meter hole in the moon's surface, the probe has uncovered minerals different to the rocks gathered on the surface during moonwalks." The propagandists who have the guts to even mention this are desperate. Some have claimed that the lunar material collected below ground is supposed to be different. This claim is easily disproved just by looking at the deep drill core data from the later Apollo flights, which supposedly took drilling equipment to the moon. More recently, Phil Webb has produced an extremely convoluted response and gone for volume to muddy the waters. First by twisting the reporter's words, substituting "different minerals" with "new minerals", implying that the SMART-1 merely discovered new minerals in addition to those in Apollo rocks. He is clearly distorting the quote's intended meaning. "Different minerals" generally means "different mineralogy". Webb then claims the reporter made up the story about different minerals to sound more sensational. Then he alleges that they lifted a piece from one of their earlier articles on the discovery of lunar meteorite mineral "hapkeite", and attributed it to SMART-1. Then he claims he claims scientists *expect* to find different minerals. Which is it? All of these claims warrant thorough responses. In regard to scientists expecting it, Webb knows this is false. Firstly, SMART-1 crashed in the lunar maria. And the Apollo samples supposedly collected from the various maria regions are generally the same in chemistry and mineralogy. Secondly, Webb went out of his way to copy and paste stuff from Randy L. Korotev's website at least once per video. Yet strangely he seemed to have missed this particular quote: "As noted above, there are known exceptions to the generalizations, and we lunatics certainly hope that we haven't discovered all the minerals and rock types that occur on the Moon. However, known samples of unusual composition and mineralogy are rare and usually occur only as small (less than 1 gram) clasts in breccias or in the soil. We have no reason to suspect, based on data obtained from orbit on the Clementine and Lunar Prospector missions, that any region of the Moon is rich in types of rocks significantly different from those we know about or postulate might exist. Most ore-forming processes on Earth involve water, so we would not expect any hidden ore deposits on the Moon. Keep in mind that if more than 40 lunar meteorites have been blasted off the Moon and found on Earth, then at any given point on the lunar surface there can be rocks from any other point. For this reason, the fact that the lunar surface was "poorly sampled" by the Apollo and Luna missions is in itself not a good reason to suspect that rocks vastly different from those that we have studied exist at unsampled points on the Moon. Tens of thousands of lunar rocks and rocklets have been studied since the Apollo missions. It is highly unlikely that any yet-unfound lunar meteorite will differ substantially in the minerals it contains or in its geochemical character from the Apollo lunar rocks." Gee, I wonder how he could have missed that! Not to mention the fact that in his previous video, he cited data from NASA's Clementine as evidence for Apollo. Yet ignored its data that indicates the lunar geology is supposedly the same as the Apollo rocks all round. Through strained cherry picking, quote-mining and word games, Webb proceeds to allege that SMART-1's D-CIXS experiment remotely verified the chemistry and mineralogy of the Apollo samples. Reading the cited articles in context indicates the exact opposite. He then creates the mother of all strawman arguments. Phil Webb has cut and pasted out of context clips from MoonFaker Exhibit D to falsely claim I said that calcium was the "new mineral" discovered during the SMART-1 impact. All I said was that SMART-1's D-CIXS remotely verified the CHEMISTRY of the Soviet moon samples as far as calcium goes. One would think if the Apollo and Soviet Luna samples were identical, as Phil Plait claimed, the remote detection of calcium would apply to all sample return missions, not just the Russian flights. Be sure to see Part 6 of this series for my debunking of Webb's strawman of epic proportions. Also discussed in this video is the minerals Hapkeite, Fercilicite and Ferdicilicite, which were discovered in lunar meteorite Dhofar 280 by Anand et al. It is believed that these minerals, particularly Hapkeite, are quite common to the lunar soil. Yet they have never been found in Apollo samples. It could also be pointed out that Dhofar 280 is chemically different to the Apollo rocks.

What is ASTEROID MINING? What does ASTEROID MINING mean? ASTEROID MINING meaning & explanation

What is ASTEROID MINING? What does ASTEROID MINING mean? ASTEROID MINING meaning - ASTEROID MINING definition - ASTEROID MINING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Asteroid mining is the exploitation of raw materials from asteroids and other minor planets, including near-Earth objects. Minerals and volatiles could be mined from an asteroid or spent comet then used in space for in-situ utilization (e.g. construction materials and rocket propellant) or taken back to Earth. These include gold, iridium, silver, osmium, palladium, platinum, rhenium, rhodium, ruthenium and tungsten for transport back to Earth; iron, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, aluminium, and titanium for construction; water and oxygen to sustain astronauts; as well as hydrogen, ammonia, and oxygen for use as rocket propellant. Due to the astronomically high costs of current space transportation, extraction techniques still being developed and lingering uncertainties about target selection, terrestrial mining is currently the only means of raw mineral acquisition today. Based on known terrestrial reserves, and growing consumption in both developed and developing countries, key elements needed for modern industry and food production could be exhausted on Earth within 50–60 years. These include phosphorus, antimony, zinc, tin, lead, indium, silver, gold and copper. In response, it has been suggested that platinum, cobalt and other valuable elements from asteroids may be mined and sent to Earth for profit, used to build solar-power satellites and space habitats, and water processed from ice to refuel orbiting propellant depots. Although asteroids and Earth accreted from the same starting materials, Earth's relatively stronger gravity pulled all heavy siderophilic (iron-loving) elements into its core during its molten youth more than four billion years ago. This left the crust depleted of such valuable elements until a rain of asteroid impacts re-infused the depleted crust with metals like gold, cobalt, iron, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, osmium, palladium, platinum, rhenium, rhodium, ruthenium and tungsten (some flow from core to surface does occur, e.g. at the Bushveld Igneous Complex, a famously rich source of platinum-group metals). Today, these metals are mined from Earth's crust, and they are essential for economic and technological progress. Hence, the geologic history of Earth may very well set the stage for a future of asteroid mining. In 2006, the Keck Observatory announced that the binary Jupiter trojan 617 Patroclus, and possibly large numbers of other Jupiter trojans, are likely extinct comets and consist largely of water ice. Similarly, Jupiter-family comets, and possibly near-Earth asteroids that are extinct comets, might also provide water. The process of in-situ resource utilization—using materials native to space for propellant, thermal management, tankage, radiation shielding, and other high-mass components of space infrastructure—could lead to radical reductions in its cost. Although whether these cost reductions could be achieved, and if achieved would offset the enormous infrastructure investment required, is unknown. Ice would satisfy one of two necessary conditions to enable "human expansion into the Solar System" (the ultimate goal for human space flight proposed by the 2009 "Augustine Commission" Review of United States Human Space Flight Plans Committee): physical sustainability and economic sustainability. From the astrobiological perspective, asteroid prospecting could provide scientific data for the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Some astrophysicists have suggested that if advanced extraterrestrial civilizations employed asteroid mining long ago, the hallmarks of these activities might be detectable. Why extraterrestrials would have resorted to asteroid mining in near proximity to earth, with its readily available resources, has not been explained.

A Shared Moon Dream - The 2028 Lunar Mineral Parade
 
04:21
The 2028 Mid August Day Lunar Mineral Parade is a speculative event which takes place in the newly formed Lunar Economic Zone, an administrative agglomeration of Shenzhen and the Moon, on August 15, 2028. Coordinated by Zhan Wang, the event is designed to be seen by the mechanical eyes of the world's media and is an external projection of pomp and ceremony showcasing an emerging resource rich, technology advanced superpower. As the media frenzy descends on the city the world is invited to the grand parade that marks the first consignment of lunar minerals touching down on earth. The parade route takes spectators along the main axis of city from the 10000 meter tall space elevator to the mega ships of the world's largest mineral port. As the world's largest rare earth producer China currently controls 90% of the mineral market. Their recent limits placed upon mineral exports has artificially driven rare earth prices to unprecedented levels. Western nations are scrambling to find their own mineral deposits to counter the Chinese monopoly. Between documentary and fiction, between propaganda and news the Lunar ­­Economic Zone plays on our fears of a localised resource economy.

Mining & the Environment: Sustainable or Responsible? by Dr. Gavin Mudd
 
01:34:01
You can access Dr. Mudd's Power Point presentation here--http://ace.aua.am/files/2016/08/AUA-Mining-v-Environment-v-Susty-or-Resp.pdf About the Talk: Modern mining is a truly global industry, supplying ever more minerals and metals to meet growing global demand - but at what environmental and social costs? This presentation will cover the main issues facing modern mining - declining ore grades, bigger mines, giant open cut and underground mines, more tailings and waste rock, more energy-water-pollution issues, greater regulatory, corporate and financial scrutiny, and all the same time as communities are more aware of mining issues. Showing unique data sets and case studies, this talk will demonstrate that modern mining is far from running out of mineral resources but is clearly facing greater environmental risks. Solutions include better regulation, corporate reporting and accountability, as well as informed communities - thereby ensuring a responsible mining sector is contributing to sustainable development. About the Speaker: Dr. Gavin Mudd is a renowned global expert on the environmental sustainability of modern mining, and brings together a unique set of multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge to explore the challenges that the modern mining industry, governments and communities are collectively facing. His 20 years of research work have examined the environmental impacts to surface water and groundwater, waste rock and tailings management, acid mine drainage, rehabilitation, mineral resources, and the sustainability metrics of mining - and this has included detailed studies of almost all sectors of the global mining industry, such as gold, uranium, coal, gas, copper, nickel, platinum group elements, rare earths, mineral sands. To date he has presented or published more than 200 journal, conference and technical papers or reports (nearly two thirds of which are peer-reviewed) - with his research differentiated by the integration of rich data sets, leading the way in quantifying the environmental and sustainability issues affecting modern mining. Dr. Mudd is recognised worldwide for his unique and independent expertise on mining, and is currently Head of Environmental Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where he has collaborated closely with Dr. Simon Jowitt in recent years on the geological side underpinning the environmental issues facing modern mining.

David Cliff, President and CEO of Empire Mining, explains what Chromite is and what it is used for. From Wiki: Chromite is found in peridotite from the Earth's mantle. It also occurs in layered ultramafic intrusive rocks. In addition, it is found in metamorphic rocks such as some serpentinites. Ore deposits of chromite form as early magmatic differentiates. It is commonly associated with olivine, magnetite, serpentine, and corundum.

NASA Finds a Mineral on Mars That Could Change History
 
01:08
There’s a bit of a mystery unfolding on Mars. Late last year, Curiosity drilled into the surface of the Red Planet and unearthed something unexpected, a mineral called tridymite. Tridymite is a silicon dioxide mineral that crystallizes at low pressure and high temperatures in excess of 800 degrees Celsius (which is 1,472 degrees F). As far as we know, it is only associated with the high temperatures and conditions seen in silicic volcanism — volcanoes with magma containing a large proportion of silica. These geological processes are the result of plate tectonics and flowing water on Earth, but Mars doesn’t have either of those. The tridymite on Mars was found in Gale Crater after Curiosity drilled down in search of interesting minerals, which were identified via x-ray examination. After confirming a high concentration of tridymite in the samples, NASA began looking at terrestrial processes that might provide an alternative way of producing the mineral — something that Mars does have. According to the paper, they’ve come up with no alternative. http://www.geek.com/science/nasa-finds-a-mineral-on-mars-that-could-rewrite-its-entire-history-1658837/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

First Landsat: "Earth Resources Technology Satellite" (ERTS) 1973 NASA

Produced for NASA by Audio Productions. NASA film HQ-223 Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landsat_1 Landsat 1, originally named "Earth Resources Technology Satellite 1", was the first satellite of the United States' Landsat program. It was a modified version of the Nimbus 4 meteorological satellite and was launched on July 23, 1972 by a Delta 900 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The near-polar orbiting spacecraft served as a stabilized, Earth-oriented platform for obtaining information on agricultural and forestry resources, geology and mineral resources, hydrology and water resources, geography, cartography, environmental pollution, oceanography and marine resources, and meteorological phenomena. To accomplish these objectives, the spacecraft was equipped with: - a three-camera return-beam vidicon (RBV) to obtain visible light and near infrared photographic images of Earth; - a four-channel multispectral scanner (MSS) to obtain radiometric images of Earth; - a data collection system (DCS) to collect information from remote, individually equipped ground stations and to relay the data to central acquisition stations. The satellite also carried two wide-band video tape recorders (WBVTR) capable of storing up to 30 minutes of scanner or camera data, giving the spacecraft's sensors a near-global coverage capability. An advanced attitude control system consisting of horizon scanners, sun sensors, and a command antenna combined with a freon gas propulsion system permitted the spacecraft's orientation to be maintained within plus or minus 0.7 degrees in all three axes. Spacecraft communications included a command subsystem operating at 154.2 and 2106.4 MHz and a PCM narrow-band telemetry subsystem, operating at 2287.5 and 137.86 MHz, for spacecraft housekeeping, attitude, and sensor performance data. Video data from the three-camera RBV system was transmitted in both real-time and tape recorder modes at 2265.5 MHz, while information from the MSS was constrained to a 20 MHz radio-frequency bandwidth at 2229.5 MHz. In 1976, Landsat 1 discovered a tiny uninhabited island 20 kilometers off the eastern coast of Canada. This island was thereafter designated Landsat Island after the satellite. As of 2006, it is the only island to be discovered via satellite imagery. The spacecraft was turned off on January 6, 1978, when cumulative precession of the orbital plane caused the spacecraft to become overheated due to near-constant exposure to sunlight. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landsat_program The Landsat program is the longest running enterprise for acquisition of satellite imagery of Earth. On July 26, 1972 the Earth Resources Technology Satellite was launched. This was eventually renamed to Landsat. The most recent, Landsat 7, was launched on April 15, 1999. The instruments on the Landsat satellites have acquired millions of images. The images, archived in the United States and at Landsat receiving stations around the world, are a unique resource for global change research and applications in agriculture, cartography, geology, forestry, regional planning, surveillance, education and national security. Landsat 7 data has eight spectral bands with spatial resolutions ranging from 15 to 60 meters; the temporal resolution is 16 days. Hughes Santa Barbara Research Center initiated design and fabrication of the first three MSS Multispectral Scanners... The first prototype MSS was completed within nine months by fall of 1970 when it was tested by scanning Half Dome at Yosemite National Park. ...In 1979, Presidential Directive 54 under President of the United States Jimmy Carter transferred Landsat operations from NASA to NOAA... and recommended transition to private sector operation of Landsat. This occurred in 1985 when the Earth Observation Satellite Company (EOSAT), a partnership of Hughes Aircraft and RCA, was selected by NOAA...

Mr. Lee - Rock Cycle rap

A song for my sixth graders about the rock cycle, sung to the tune of "Still Fly" by Page featuring Drake. Lyrics: (Hook) Rock cycle Round and round Like the wheels on the bus rolling over the ground Igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic, for sure it's Fun just like it sounds Sedimentary rocks are made When three things happen over many days Deposition, compaction, cementation Makes them form ok, ok (Verse 1) I know there's more exciting things than rocks Like chillin' with your friends or playing Xbox But I bet that you gon' see it on the MSA Hear me out, listen to what I'm about to say Igneous rocks form when volcanos erupt Because when the lava finally gets cool enough The molten material begins to harden And igneous rocks are formed, ballin' Formed underground means intrusive Formed above ground means extrusive This song is so nice not abusive Rocks everywhere they not elusive Second type is sedimentary Big words like this sound so scary Ha, but there's no need to be scared Just remember that these rocks have a lot of layers (Hook) (Verse 2) Each layer is made up of sediment Which is soil, small rocks, and whatever man And it was all laid down by deposition At the bottom of a river then collision The layers get pressed together by compaction, there's just so much action and I'm askin for you to know that the top layers push down on the ones below Cementation yeah glues it all together sediment that's stuck together is just so much better And if you lucky you might discover some fossils They even older than the food be at McDonald's Clap your hands, we have sedimentary rock But there's a third type and I hope that you haven't forgot Metamorphic rocks are made with heat and pressure Let me sing it to you, "heat and pressure" (Hook) Maryland Indicator 2.A.4. Differentiate among sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks based upon the processes by which they are formed.

Space Exploration
 
04:56
Heidi Hammel says reallocating money toward science could do us a lot of good. Question: What is inhibiting space exploration today? Heidi Hammel: It's clear that the only thing that is inhibiting us from doing further human exploration of space is money and the will to do it. I mean, if we could do it 30, 40 years ago, 50 years ago, whatever, we could certainly do it now. It costs a lot of money, and you need to have a good reason to do it. And in the past our reasons were not science, and don't let scientists tell you otherwise. That just means they haven't read history. We were not doing moon landings to do geological exploration of the surface. In fact, when we got to that point, the program was canceled, so human spaceflight at this point is not about science. It really needs to be about economics or politics. So there's nothing technological preventing us from doing it. We have the technology to live in space for years right now. Getting to Mars is a little more challenging. It's a lot further than the moon, a lot further than the moon. People don't really appreciate that, but it's going to be a lot harder, and people worry about the sun and whether those solar flares will hurt the astronauts. But that's just a technological problem. You could think of ways to get around it. It just costs money and costs the will power. So there's people willing to go right now. Some of these astronauts, they want to go to space. They want. That's what they want to do. I don't want to go, but that's just my own personal thing. I'm happy here on the surface of the earth. If space travel ever got to be as simple as jet travel today, yeah, I'd take a jet flight to the moon. But right now it's too cramped and tiny, and I just don't want to do that. My kids, if they want to, I mean, there's nothing preventing it except it costs money. I wish that our resources in our country were devoted to things like exploration and expanding our boundaries rather than some of the other things that we're spending 10 billion dollars on every two weeks. But that's not my choice to make really, except as a citizen I vote all the time. Because exploration is not science driven, you've got to ask what is it driven by? And it's driven by politics. And I gave a public lecture quite a few years ago now, where I was talking about the future of planetary exploration. And I said in this very public lecture, I said, you know, "I think the only way that the U.S. human spaceflight program is going to get really revitalized, really put sort of an Apollo level push on it, is if some other country, perhaps China, were to actually have a landed flight to the moon and brought back our American flag and put it in Tiananmen Square. Now I think that might be a provocative enough maneuver that the U.S. might stand up and say, oh, well, well, we can do that, too. We can go back to the moon. To me that's the only kind of thing that will make our government turn around and start investing in human spaceflight. With that said, I think the world is changing. I think that the private industries are now starting to get interested enough in space that we may see a very different paradigm come up for human spaceflight. It may be the Branson's, the Virgin Galactic Spaceship One, it may be those people, sort of like the Orville and Wilbur Wright's of spaceflight, who actually with their small spacecraft make it more of a tourist industry, and they start to get enough money. And once you get enough money going, then other people throw money at it, and as I said earlier, money is all you need. There's no technological barrier to space exploration. It's money. The private part of our industry may overtake the government part. And we may see space, human spaceflight, coming at us from a very different direction than our current thinking has put it. A lot of science fiction writers have talked about that in the past, where you've got your asteroid mining companies, and that they are the ones that are really going to make space exploration happen. It may turn out to be something like that. I don't see any reason that it can't happen. We just need to find the money and the will to make it happen.

Want to Invest in Mining in 2017? Look Out For This - Brent Cook | OUTLOOK 2017

It is no secret that 2016 proved to be a positive year for the mining sector, with some gold and silver stocks rallying over 100%. Could this happen again in 2017? Giving his outlook on the sector, Exploration Insights’ Brent Cook joins Kitco News on a special Outlook 2017 edition of the Gold Report, where he shares some insights as to what he thinks is in store for miners next year. ‘My expectation is that we’re going to see the precious metals back off into early next year as the markets continue its [...] unjustified rise, and the dollar as well,’ he said. ‘But reality is going to set in next year and once it does, I expect investors move back into precious metals.’ Cook also shares his top mining picks and what effects, if any, President-elect Donald Trump can have on the sector in 2017.

What is GROUNDWATER? What does GROUNDWATER mean? GROUNDWATER meaning & explanation
 
03:17
What is GROUNDWATER? What does GROUNDWATER mean? GROUNDWATER meaning & explanation. Groundwater (or ground water) is the water present beneath Earth's surface in soil pore spaces and in the fractures of rock formations. A unit of rock or an unconsolidated deposit is called an aquifer when it can yield a usable quantity of water. The depth at which soil pore spaces or fractures and voids in rock become completely saturated with water is called the water table. Groundwater is recharged from, and eventually flows to, the surface naturally; natural discharge often occurs at springs and seeps, and can form oases or wetlands. Groundwater is also often withdrawn for agricultural, municipal, and industrial use by constructing and operating extraction wells. The study of the distribution and movement of groundwater is hydrogeology, also called groundwater hydrology. Typically, groundwater is thought of as water flowing through shallow aquifers, but, in the technical sense, it can also contain soil moisture, permafrost (frozen soil), immobile water in very low permeability bedrock, and deep geothermal or oil formation water. Groundwater is hypothesized to provide lubrication that can possibly influence the movement of faults. It is likely that much of Earth's subsurface contains some water, which may be mixed with other fluids in some instances. Groundwater may not be confined only to Earth. The formation of some of the landforms observed on Mars may have been influenced by groundwater. There is also evidence that liquid water may also exist in the subsurface of Jupiter's moon Europa. Groundwater is often cheaper, more convenient and less vulnerable to pollution than surface water. Therefore, it is commonly used for public water supplies. For example, groundwater provides the largest source of usable water storage in the United States and California annually withdraws the largest amount of groundwater of all the states. Underground reservoirs contain far more water than the capacity of all surface reservoirs and lakes in the US, including the Great Lakes. Many municipal water supplies are derived solely from groundwater. Polluted groundwater is less visible, but more difficult to clean up, than pollution in rivers and lakes. Groundwater pollution most often results from improper disposal of wastes on land. Major sources include industrial and household chemicals and garbage landfills, excessive fertilizers and pesticides used in agriculture, industrial waste lagoons, tailings and process wastewater from mines, oil field brine pits, leaking underground oil storage tanks and pipelines, sewage sludge and septic systems.

In Chinese Gold, Demand for Stability over Profits

For more news and videos visit ☛ ‪http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ ‪http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ ‪http://facebook.com/NTDTelevision World gold prices have soared recently amid financial fears. While you might expect this to mean more output, some Chinese mining firms have a different approach--working lower grade ore. The gold price is hovering near the $2,000 range, as global finance markets remain unstable. For many world mining operations, this has meant something of a golden age. The law of supply and demand dictates that as gold is worth more, there will be greater efforts to boost output and take advantage of the price conditions. But things are different in the east Chinese city of Zhaoyuan. It's known as the country's gold capital for its abundant deposits. One small privately-owned gold mine here is estimated to produce some 350 kilograms of gold a year, out of 120 tons of gold ore explored every day. Production has stayed stable despite the recent price jumps—like some other Chinese gold mines, Zhaoyuan's are keeping output steady, by expanding operations into lower grade ore. [Hao Zengbao, Zhaoyuan Gold Administrator]: "This is a resource-type enterprise, as gold mines have their own limited service life spans, and mining exploration usually has to expand year by year, so as to make exploration and mining balanced." Once unprofitable, low-grade sources can now be explored without incurring losses—though this means losing out on the large potential profits from the current prices, if more gold were mined and sold. Some analysts think that this giving up of profits may actually be worth it to local officials—because prolonging the overall gold supply of their mines may prolong their own careers. Private firms may be persuaded by such officials to pursue stability, rather than maximize their own performance.

30,000 routers in India infected with cryptocurrency mining malware, Delhi most affected (Hindi)
 
04:02
In a news which showcases our increasing vulnerability to cyber threats, hackers have managed to infect 30,000 routers in India with cryptocurrency mining malware. The hackers have used the notorious CoinHive script to mine privacy focused cryptocurrency Monero (XMR). The process, which is also called cryptojacking, involves unauthorised use of someone's computing resources to mine cryptocurrencies. In this case, the compromised routers have been used to mine cryptocurrencies on every web page a user visits. According to reports, the MicroTik brand of routers has been exploited for this purpose. Notably, these routers are being used by many telecom companies and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in India. Cybersecurity research group Banbreach has identified that the three ISPs most affected by this mining malware were Honesty Net Solution, Elxire Data Services, and Gigantic Infotel Pvt. Delhi is the most affected city, followed by Thane and Mumbai. Tier 3 cities have been most affected by cryptojacking. Recently, we had also reported that many Indian government websites have fallen prey to cryptojacking.

Cyclic Apocalypses
 
31:14
A look at the possibility of future civilizations rising and falling. Visit our sponsor: https://skl.sh/isaac It's long been observed that empires tend to rise and fall in a seeming cycle, never identical but sharing many similarities. Today we will examine the idea that this may be the reason that we have encountered no advanced civilizations in our own galaxy, and that the solution the Fermi Paradox, as to why we have seen no alien civilizations, may be that they are caught in a perpetual loop. Unable or unwilling to use technology which might allow them to travel the cosmos. We will also consider if such a loop may await us, or that we are already in it.

Niocorp (NB.V or NIOBF): U.S. Niobium Deposit On Path To Production
 
13:52
http://goldstocktrades.com/blog In late 2011, I found an asset in Nebraska that looked even better than Iamgold's Niobec as it is higher grade. I recommended it to my subscribers and bought a position in early 2012, which I never sold. The asset was phenomenal but the stock was hammered down due to the weak junior market. At the time, I was a little concerned as management did not have a track record of building mines and the financing environment was extremely challenging. Back then the company was called Quantum Rare Earth Developments and I believed that the quality of the asset and commodity would eventually attract capital and first class management. Two years later the junior market appears to be emerging from a bear market and Quantum Rare Earth Developments is now known as Niocorp (NB.V or NIOBF) with possibly the top CEO/Mine builder in the strategic metals sector with the funding to advance the project. No one knows how to take strategic metal mines into production like Mark Smith who restarted Molycorp's (MCP) Mountain Pass Mine. Mountain Pass is the lowest cost, most vertically integrated Rare Earth Mine in production outside of China right here in California. Mark also knows the financial markets as he raised over $2.5 billion for Molycorp, which has helped the U.S. solve the rare earth shortage. Now Mark believes he can do it again and bring Niocorp's Elk Creek Mine into production. Elk Creek could be just as strategically important and lucrative than Mountain Pass. Niocorp is now focussed on producing a feasibility study which I think could be very economic. Remember Elk Creek is higher grade than Iamgold's Niobec in Quebec, which means more niobium per ton of earth mines. Its also important to note Elk Creek has a high grade starter zone which is almost double the grade of Niobec. This could help with a quicker payback. Metallurgical studies will be quite exciting for Niocorp as it could show similar extraction costs to Niobec. Elk Creek could be a big money maker for the Nebraska economy as Iamgold's Niobec makes $90 million of profit every year. Using a conservative PE, if Mark Smith is successful bringing Elk Creek into production over the next two years it could be a billion dollar market cap. Currently, the market cap is around $25 million so major gains could be made over the next two to three years if you believe in the asset and the management teams ability to bring this mine into production. If the market realizes that this asset could make it into production over the next few months then Niocorp has the potential to be the next Molycorp or Stillwater Mining who also own producing strategic metal mines in the United States. Mark Smith is this recent interview with me believes all the potential is there for this mine to come into production as it is one of the highest grade and tonnage projects outside of Brazil. The project has excellent infrastructure and a supportive community. The new CEO Mark Smith has put his money where his mouth is by investing $2 million of his own money to own around 10% of the company. It is clear in the interview that he is passionate about Niocorp's Elk Creek Deposit. I expect the company to rapidly advance their technical and geological studies so they can fully finance the mine over the next 6 months to a year. In conclusion, two years ago when I first wrote about this company it lacked the management and financing. Now Niocorp is financed for feasibility and has the best person on the planet to finance and design this asset. Disclosure: Author/Interviewer own Niocorp and the company is a website sponsor.

NephilimFree: "Evaporites" - with my comments added..
 
09:59
The original of this video was uploaded by NephilimFree, and I do not want to infringe on his copyright AT ALL... I comment, and criticize, and I am convinced that this is "fair use"...especially as I am personally addressed in the video! I wish to make DISCUSSION possible - being blocked by NephilimFree, I cannot comment on his channel :). Nephy blocked me after I had asked him how evaporites fitted into his "flood hypotheses" in the comment section of one of his "Geology for Evolutionist" videos. I was explicitely refering to the European Permian Zechstein evaporites... I asked the same question below a video in which ThickShades tried to ridicule Rhymemaiden1 (who debunks Nephys "geological ideas" brilliantly and in a really funny way - subscribe!) with misogynistic ad hominem attacks. We had a lively discussion - which Nephy partly shows in this video. Interestingly he leaves out those of my comments that do not fit into his "arguments":). Thats one reason I added my comments.. 1. I was specifically, explicitely, refering to the Permian Zechstein evaporites found below parts of Northern Europe in my first question to Nephilim. I even gave details as to the geology of the region in my discussion with ThickShades... 2. "My little evaporites": We are talking about deposits up to two kilometres thick in some places, spanning hundreds of square-kilometres..BTW, Nephy, halite (rock salt) is an evaporite...:) For maps indicating the extension of the Zechstein sea, see: http://www.searchanddiscovery.net/documents/97020/aapgzi.htm (plate 8: Late Permian). For todays location of the deposits: http://pubs.usgs.gov/bul/b2211/images/B2211Fig09_opt.gif For a cross-section see: http://www.tu-dresden.de/biw/geotechnik/geologie/studium/download/reggeol/abschnitt31.pdf, p. 27 (German) 3. As for him spewing nonsense about sedimentology and geology in general ...I fear Nephilim never really looked at a geological map, much less a cross-section - or the rocks themselves. ..I do not really know where to begin with my critique, and my comments are in no way addressing all the flaws and errors of his spoken words...I just picked some of the most glaring ones. BTW: I never claimed I am a geologist, nor am I an expert concerning evaporites... I am a mere geographer ...:) Infos about sedimentology and evaporites: Evaporites - Definition and some intro-infos: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/197000/evaporite Salt-tectonics, a very nice glossary with many maps and cross-sections (University of Porto, Portugal): http://homepage.ufp.pt/biblioteca/GlossarySaltTectonics/HomePage.html Beginners sedimentology : http://facstaff.gpc.edu/~pgore/geology/geo101/sedrx.htm#Evaps Regional Geology of Northern Germany, with cross-sections and maps (German): http://www.tu-dresden.de/biw/geotechnik/geologie/studium/download/reggeol/abschnitt31.pdf For further infos: Schreiber, B.C. et al.
