Introduction Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that applies science and technology to the extraction of minerals from the earth. Mining engineering is associated with many other disciplines, such as geology, mineral processing and metallurgy, geotechnical engineering and surveying. A mining engineer may manage any phase of mining operations – from exploration and discovery of the mineral resource, through feasibility study, mine design, development of plans, production and operations to mine closure. Nature of Work Mining Engineers design mines and will use engineering principles, technology and scientific theory for the safe and effective extraction of natural resources from these mines. Mining Engineers plan, design and operate the mining processes, both underground and above ground. Mining Engineers will be responsible for the overseeing of both mining operations and miners, and are employed by many mining-related organizations Duties The duties of a mining engineer include: • Involved in the design of both open-pit and underground mines • Overseeing of the operations of the mine • Training and supervision of personnel • Looking into methods for transporting minerals to the various processing plants • Oversee the design and construction of mine shafts and tunnels in underground mines • To ensure that mines are operated safely and in the most environmentally effective ways possible • Oversee the production rates to assess the effectiveness of the mine operation • To be involved in finding solutions for problematic areas such as water and air pollution, land reclamation etc. • Design and develop mines and determine the best way to extract metal or minerals to get the most out of deposits, and to extract as much out of the mine whilst maintaining strict safety and environmental issues at hand, for the least amount of money. • Involved in trying to limit the amount of water used in the operation, and keep pollution to a bare minimum. • Prepare technical reports for miners, engineers, and managers Now let’s go to, Eligibility and Professional Courses • 10+2 Science with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics is mandatory with at least 60% marks. • Entrance examinations are conducted for admission to B.E./B.Tech programs in marine engineering.

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole - Petition to sign https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/keep-cumbrian-coal-in-the-hole-its-too-near-sellafield The first deep coal mine in the UK for 30 years ? A new company West Cumbria Mining are being financed by China to the tune of £millions. On January 24th 2018 in Kendal, Cumbria County Council will be making a decision on the first deep coal mine in the UK in 30 years Please write and object – the more objections from the public and from groups there are the better chance we have of stopping new mining activity in close proximity to Sellafield The more letters of objection to Cumbria County Council the better ! Email: [email protected]] For the Attention of: Mrs Rachel Brophy – Case Officer Cumbria County Council Dear Mrs Brophy PLANNING APPLICATION: 4/17/9007 West Cumbria Mining I am writing to strongly oppose the plan to open a new coking (metallurgical) coal mine off St Bees in West Cumbria. Keep Fossil Fuel in the Ground - Cumbria County Council is signed up to climate agreements, which this plan would make a nonsense of. Close to Sellafield - Coal extraction is known to be a cause of man made earthquakes, this site is very close to Sellafield, much closer than any previous coal mining and these coal deposits are dangerously methane rich. Destruction of Wildlife Habitat -The RSPB, Natural England and others have pointed out that this plan would have the potential to impact dangerously on the fragile St Bees habitats and the wider Irish Sea. Yours sincerely ……………………………. For more information please see : https://keepcumbriancoalinthehole.wordpress.com/

Remote village hopes small coal mines not closed as part of govt plans to create reserve
 
02:11
Residents of Tausa, a remote village in central Colombia, fear that authorities will close the small coal mines that have sustained them and their families for as long as anyone can remember. Miners in "La Flauta" said on Wednesday that their small-scale "artisan" mine will close if authorities declare the area a nature reserve in which mining is prohibited and there will be no hope for their future. Government officials have been saying that for the time being there are no plans to close Tausa's mines, and despite their worries, workers continue with the manual labour that has been passed down through generations. From early in the morning, miners at "La Flauta" hop into railway wagons and travel through a maze of tunnels before reaching the seam, where they begin to extract coal. Then they chip, drill and pick for hours the mine's interior walls in search for the mineral. The effort though, seems that it's not paying off at the moment. "Right now mining has become difficult because there are no exports. There are no carbon sales. Carbon is very cheap and there are 40 families, 40 people working and depending from this mine and we all have wives and children," said Sebastian Echeverria, 45, who has been the administrator of the mine for 11 years. Miners say they earn about 600,000 pesos (318 US dollars) every two weeks. "If there was a way to advance with my family, support my family with other (types of) jobs, then I would do it," said Armando Pinzon, a Tausa resident who has been working in the mines for eight years. The plan to declare the area a nature reserve is being reviewed by the Environment Ministry, and most likely will not go into effect in the coming future. But for Tausa's residents, that doesn't calm their fears of being left unemployed. The Juan Manuel Santos administration cut its coal production goal for 2013 to 94 (m) million tonnes from 98 (m) million due to strikes afflicting the sector this year. In 2012 the sector produced more than 89.2 (m) million tonnes.

Special report : Inside the Congo cobalt mines that exploit children
 
06:17
It is an essential part of most mobile gadgets sold around the world and demand for cobalt is soaring. But the process of extracting the mineral from the earth comes at a huge human cost. A Sky News investigation has found children as young as four working in dangerous and squalid conditions in Cobalt mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for as little as 8p a day.

Are Giant Robots the future Of Underwater Mining ScubaTube - http://bit.ly/2vHQnP7 Fun Vids - http://bit.ly/2mZLTzp A Canadian company called Nautilus Minerals have spent years prepping to mine an area called Solwara 1. The seabed is, of course, a massive area so the mining company has built three massive machines to mine the area, to put it into perspective the lightest machine weighs two hundred tons. At this moment in time, these machines live aboard a 700-foot ship, which is also where these robots will be controlled… so even the mothership is massive. Using cameras, 3D sonar and very powerful lights operators will be able to churn up the seabed with ease. ....................................

The SPACE MINING EMPIRE? The case for LUXEMBOURG - VisualPolitik EN
 
17:40
The space race is back. Companies like SpaceX or Virgin Galactic have given a new push to the space exploration. But there is more than this: outside of Earth there are lots of natural resources to be exploited. Some asteroids are nothing but flying piles of minerals, water or even natural gas. Both Japan and America have already sent proves to the space in order to retrieve some samples of materials. But… what legislation would cover the space mining industry? What would happen if two companies have a corporate conflict on an asteroid? So far, the country with the most advance legislation on this matter is… Luxembourg! This small country has already a cluster of space mining companies. They are completely determined to lead this brand new industry… but how does this legislation work? Can Luxembourg become a space mining empire? We will answer all of this questions on this video.

Secret Mining in the Congo (Intl)
 
01:58
USA, EU & UK urged: 'keep your aid but stop the raid' Professor Willy Vangu, International Spokesperson for the UDPS - DRC Opposition Party It is absurd that a country with more forests than Brazil, more minerals than Australia, more oil than Norway and more hydro-power potential than Finland can be home to over 52 million people (70 per cent of the population) who live on less than 80 pence a day. The Democratic Republic of Congo is a country with vast natural wealth and it suffers this paradox. Secretive mining deals left unchecked by the international community are a major factor in the Congolese people's enduring misery. Why does this happen? Who is behind it? Why does it matter to the UK and what can we do to stop it? Using evidence gathered from the Congo, and from off shore tax havens, Professor Willy Vangu, will explain to the world over the next few weeks the detailed workings behind BVI shell companies. Failure of the UK and the IMF to enforce existing transparency obligations on the DRC Government is wasting taxpayers' money and political capital. As a result, the opposition party of the DRC is calling on aid and loans direct to the DRC Government to be cancelled in return for renewed focus on tackling secretive mining deals, which keep the Congolese people poor and make a few within the DRC very wealthy. The background: In December 2011 a UK Member of Parliament released details of 59 shell companies, mostly registered in the British Virgin Islands and overseen by a Gibraltar trust, that have been involved in purchasing DRC mineral and oil assets. Backed by Global Witness, the MP's analysis of just four of these transactions -- all occurring in the last two years - showed a loss to the Congolese people of over $5.5 billion. This was supposed to change as part of a 2009 loan from the International Monetary Fund. This $551 million loan was conditional upon the DRC government implementing broad transparency and governance reforms in the mining sector: mining contracts were to be published, along with the details of those individuals who are behind companies that own mineral assets and state assets would be put up for public tender. None of this has happened, and the IMF has turned a blind eye. All four of the transactions resulting in the $5.5 billion loss -- 10 times the amount of the IMF loan - occurred after the IMF loan was made. That is, at the time when the IMF was supposed to be closely monitoring the DRC government's promised reforms. Cancellation of aid and loans to the DRC Government: Professor Vangu said recently, "UK Ministers should work to suspend all direct aid and loans to the Congolese government through the IMF and World Bank until it has fully complied with its obligations to the IMF. We are calling on all governments to suspend direct support of the DRC Government, including through futile transparency programmes like PROmines. UK Ministers should also seek guarantees from the DRC that secret sales of state assets to offshore 'shell' companies will be properly investigated." Furthermore, summon the will to clamp down on matters connected to your jurisdiction. This will be cheaper for the British taxpayer and more beneficial to the Congolese people than continuing to pour aid into an unaccountable government. In short, keep your aid but help end the raid. The significant impact it will make to improve the lives of the Congolese is not to be underestimated." Conservative MP and member of the International Development Select Committee, Pauline Latham has called for the suspension of direct loans to the DRC government through the IMF. She has said, "Until the IMF start enforcing the transparency caveats attached to their massive loan to the DRC Government, British taxpayers should stop their support of this regime."

Tanzania gov’t pressuring mines to renegotiate contracts after tax dodge claims
 
01:41
Tanzania is keen on passing legislation that will force all mining, oil and gas companies to renegotiate their contracts and pay more tax. The government says it wants the country’s natural resources to bring more benefits to its people, after accusing mining companies of stealing 48 billion US dollars in tax. But the move has been condemned by private firms who say they already pay their fair share to the public purse.

🇷🇺 Russia in Africa: Inside a military training centre in CAR | Talk to Al Jazeera In The Field
 
23:01
Russia is back in the Central African Republic(CAR). In a military training base located on former palace grounds southwest of the capital Bangui, hundreds of Russian fighters, described as army reservists, are training Central African government soldiers in preparation for deployment along the country's border. The CAR government hopes to regain control of the country, which is torn by sectarian violence and the operations of 14 rebel groups. CAR, formerly colonised by France, is rich in strategically important minerals, diamonds, and gold. Russia has sought influence in CAR before when the Soviet Union developed ties during the reign of former President Jean-Bedel Bokassa before he was overthrown in 1979. In 2017, CAR President Faustin-Archange Touadera reached out to Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of a UN General Assembly meeting, asking for help. It was a meeting that stunned many on the Security Council, especially France, who had advised the the presidents of CAR for years. Valery Zakharov, a former Russian intelligence official, stepped in as adviser to CAR's president. Zakharov gave Al Jazeera access to the military base, where three Russian journalists were killed investigating the potential involvement of the Russian private security company, the Wagner Group. He denies accusations that Russia will exploit resources or cause instability, and told Al Jazeera that Russia hopes to end conflict in the country. "My job is to deal with national security, I help restore the army, police and all sorts of questions regarding national security," he said. "The Russians came here to bring peace. To arm government troops is one of the tasks so in the future these soldiers can occupy the borders and peace can be brought here in the end, and police take care of internal security." While Russia did help broker a peace deal that was signed by the 14 armed groups in February 2019, some are still concerned that Russia is playing a geopolitical chess game in Africa, which involves China and the United States who have already established bases in places like Djibouti. Just a 10-minute car drive away from the presidential palace is the mainly Muslim PK5 neighbourhood, which is effectively dominated by Seleka fighter Nimery Matar Djamous aka 'General Force', who is accused of war crimes including torture, rape, and extortion, and has evaded arrest by the United Nations security forces. He views the arrival of the Russians with deep suspicion. "I trust the president of the Central African Republic, it's us who elected the president, in a difficult moment ... He worked well, but there's ... the politics that exceed him," he said. "The Russians are not here to help, they want our gold, diamonds and minerals. They are here to exploit and replace the French. What they want is obtain France's position here." There are other concerns of interference. Gunshots were fired after Karim Meckassoua, then-president of the CAR National Assembly, was dismissed of his position in a vote of no confidence. He believes Russia orchestrated the move. "Because I was bothering them, putting up obstacles. They are ignoring our constitution. Only the national assembly can be in charge of the country's wealth, in other words no licence to mines or financial contract or timber exploitation can be delivered without the consent of the national assembly. Who is trying to brush our laws aside? The Russians," Meckassoua said. Najat Rochdi from the UN peacekeeping mission, MINUSCA, said that peacekeepers welcome involvement from all member states, but says that they must abide by some rules. "The presence of the Russian, you know, this country needs the support of everybody, really, of everybody in terms of member states. Every single member state is more than welcome to support the country, while it comes also with some obligations. And the obligation is to be part of the international community and of the partners and to play the game by the name." - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/ #AlJazeeraEnglish #RussianArmy #CentralAfrica

Grand Theft Congo - DRC
 
15:35
July 2005 The major problem facing Africa is corruption and control of resources. In the DRC, the military is stealing minerals to sell to Western companies. At a remote mine in central DRC, workers with torches and pick axes hack at the ruddy earth. They are mining cassiterite, a mineral vital in the production of laptops and mobile phones. But dispersed among the miners are Congolese Government troops -- in plain clothes for the camera -- literally forcing most workers to work at gunpoint. 'The soldiers always steal everything. They even come to shoot people down the mineshafts,' complains Regina Maponda. Western greed for cassiterite is fuelling the boom -- at an airfield near the mine, soldiers jealously guard their loot as it makes it way to Japan and the West. Conflict mining is a curse, and it is difficult to see what the G8 leaders can do.

Tanzania Mining Sector: Government slaps Acacia with $190 billion tax bill
 
00:43
The government of Tanzania has slapped Acacia Mining with a tax bill of $190 billion.That's equivalent to almost two centuries' worth of the gold producer's revenue. The charges relate to alleged under-declared export revenue from its Bul-yan-hulu and Buz-wagi mines between 2000 and 2017. The fine is the latest development in an escalating conflict between the government and Acacia. In March, Tanzania banned exports of unprocessed gold and copper - a move Acacia says is costing it about $1 million a day in lost revenue. The government has also accused the firm of operating illegally and tax evasion. Acacia has denied the allegations.

SOUTH AFRICA: MINERS CRITICISE UK GOLD SELL-OFF
 
03:01
English/Nat Gold sales by the Bank of England came under fire today from South African miners, mine owners and the government. The government accused Britain of breaking an undertaking to consult it before going ahead with it's gold auction. All parties are demanding that further gold sales are stopped and proposed sales by the International Monetary Fund are cancelled. The auction of gold reserves has brought about a 20-year low in the gold price and potentially devastating effects on gold producing countries like South Africa. In Pretoria hundreds of gold miners protested against the expected closure of the 160-year-old E-R-P-M mine which will cost thousands of jobs. And the country's National Union of Mine workers has enlisted the help of sister organisations worldwide in a bid to prevent further gold sales by Britain and proposed sales by the International Monetary Fund. The union claims that "at least 800-thousand jobs" are under threat as a direct result of the gold sales --- the announcements of which sent markets reeling as the price of the yellow metal went into a tail-spin and plunged to record lows. It has already asked the International Chemical, Energy and Mining Federation, the American Mine workers Union and the American Federation of Labour to urge the International Monetary Fund to rethink its planned sale of 10 (m) million ounces of gold. An approach could also be made to the National Union of Miners in the United Kingdom and the British Trades' Union Congress to put pressure on Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Labour government to abort further auctions of its gold reserves. SOUNDBITE: (English) "As our colonisers, they are inflicting more damage on us than help." SUPER CAPTION: Gwede Mantashe, NUM secretary general Tuesday's British auction of 25 tons of gold resulted in the metal's price sliding to a fresh 20 year low of 255-point-25 U-S dollars an ounce. The price of spot gold has fallen 12 percent in the last two months. South Africa is still the biggest producer of gold but it is also the most expensive with many of its mines in a "marginal" state even before the recent gold price collapse. The South African gold industry's role in the domestic economy has been in steady decline since the early 1980s when it accounted for well over half the country's exports. Today that figure is less than 20 percent. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The South African government find both incomprehensible and unacceptable the insensitivity of the British government and its monetary authorities towards the pleas of gold-producing countries, on the handling of the matter of gold sales. This behaviour, and the decisions of other industrialised countries and the IMF on the public handling of this matter is having the effect of defeating the very objectives that they profess to pursue." SUPER CAPTION: Joel Netshitenzhe, South African government spokesman The Chamber of Mines of South Africa condemned the method and timing of the gold sales and warned that it could cost the industry at least 12-thousand jobs. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We'd also be seeking to consolidate our position with the other Highly Indebted Poor Countries who are gold producers in order to make sure that we can speak with one voice on this matter." SUPER CAPTION: Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, South African Minister of Minerals and Energy Affairs It estimates that the combination of planned job losses and further vulnerable jobs will result in about 800-thousand people being exposed to the possibility of no subsistence income. This does not include those jobs at risk from companies which either supply or service the gold mining industry.

Why the Deadly Asbestos Industry is Still Alive and Well
 
19:28
Despite irrefutable scientific evidence calling out the dangers of asbestos, 2 million tons of the carcinogen are exported every year to the developing world, where it's often handled with little to no regulation. For this episode of VICE Reports, correspondent Milène Larsson traveled to the world's largest asbestos mine in the eponymous town of Asbest, Russia, to meet workers whose livelihoods revolve entirely around the dangerous mineral. Surprisingly, the risks associated with asbestos mining didn't seem to worry the inhabitants; in fact, asbestos is the city's pride, celebrated with monuments, songs, and even its own museum. Larsson then visits Libby, Montana, another mining town almost on the other side of the globe, where the effects of asbestos exposure are undeniable: 400 townspeople have died from asbestos-related diseases, and many more are slowly choking to death. Why is the deadly industry of mining and selling asbestos still alive and well?

Executive Course on Oil, Gas and Mining Governance
 
04:05
Countries with non-renewable resource wealth face both an opportunity and a challenge. When used well, these resources can create greater prosperity for current and future generations. Squandered, they can cause economic instability, social conflict, and lasting environmental damage. To benefit from resource wealth, citizens, private companies, and governments must make a broad range of decisions. Each requires leaders to consider complex options and trade-offs, and devise strategies to implement these policy choices. This intensive five-day course provides the training and insight required for policy leaders in the public and private sector to work towards better management and governance of oil, gas or mineral resources for a better future. The course builds a better understanding of the interests of the public and private sectors and facilitates dialogue and mutual appreciation of respective positions between these different groups. Globally recognised experts and academics have developed this course to encourage public and private sector leaders from multiple countries to share their own experiences, while gaining insights and specialist knowledge about natural resource management. The course looks at both technical policy aspects of managing resource and the complex interplay between governments, companies and citizens.

Rare Earth Minerals Turn Villages to Ruins

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Baotou, Inner Mongolia is China's largest rare earth mineral production base. Although it is a precious mineral resource, rare earth imposes great dangers of pollution. Recently, French media reported from Baotou. Entitled "In China, rare earths are killing villages", the report highlighted massive environmental pollution. It revealed the impact of the production of rare earth minerals on local residents, animals and land. The following is our report. French media 'Le Monde' reported from Baotou, stating that by aerial viewpoint, it looks like a large lake, fed by numerous tributaries. On site, it is actually an opaque discharge covering an area of 10 km2. Surrounding the industrial plants producing 17 minerals are reject waste waters loaded with chemicals. There are no fish or algae The Le Monde article introduced that rock from Bayan obo rare earth ore mine, located 120 kilometers away, are sent here for treatment. The concentration of rare earth in the rocks is very low and must be separated and purified by hydrometallurgical processes and acid baths. In the effluent basin are exist all sorts of toxic chemicals and radioactive elements such as thorium. Ingestion of these toxins causes cancer of the pancreas, lung and blood. A pungent odor exudes within radius of 10 miles. Local villagers have been suffering from cancer. Rows of brown houses in the village have been reduced to rubble. Sichuan environmentalist Chen Yunfei indicates that rare earth refining process causes great environmental pollution and destruction. People are unaware of the specific dangers of this project, and the specialists involved in the decision-making. Chen Yunfei: "Some officials only work on the image projects for profit. They relocate once the money has been made. Some officials collude with the business, caring about nothing but profit, leaving the mess for the public." According to local residents, Baotou used to be a vast grassland. In 1958 the state enterprise Baotou Iron and Steel Company began producing rare earth production. By the end of 1980, locals found that the plant was in trouble. Last year, China Environment News reported that Baotou Iron and Steel Group's tailing dam leakage has caused damage to five surrounding villages. It has affected more than 3000 farmers, and ruined more than 3,295 Acres of farmland. Ma Peng, former Director of the Baotou Rare Earth Research Institute, indicated that due to the lack of a barrier below the tailing dam, the mining waste is directly discharging into the Yellow River. The discharge is at a rate of 300m per year. The residents also said that further pollution has been caused by other industries and thermal power plants. These industries followed rare earth production by the Baotou Iron and Steel Company. Local residents have to breathe air saturated with sulfuric acid and coal dust. Coal dust is airbourne around the houses. Cows, horses, chickens and goats are being killed by these poisons. The locals have fled, and Xinguang Sancun village has now decreased from 2000 villagers to 300. Every family is hit with illness. After 20 years of complaints to the local government, the villagers have finally won promises of financial compensation. These have only been partially fulfilled. Miss Hao, a resident of Baotou: "We all know. The government is too dark. No one cares about the people, whether they live or die, not to mention the pollution." For many years, there have been calls for attention for the issue of Baotou tailing dam discharging thorium radiation to Baotou and into the Yellow River. The hazards and pollution caused by the Baotou tailing dam have never been effectively alleviated. Environmentalist Chen Yunfei: "This is an investment that has hurt several generations. It has polluted the whole environment. This high cost investment ought to be condemned. Our future generations are going to suffer for it." China Environment News indicated that Baotou is located in the stratum fracture zone. In the event of a major earthquake or large-scale rainfall, the rupture of the tailing dam will threaten the surrounding five villages, as well as tens of thousands of lives of the Baotou Iron and Steel workers. If the tailings flow into the Yellow River, it will cause serious pollution to the river. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

The conquest of the Netherlands by Napoleon had left the Dutch colonists in a state of limbo, with the British claiming authority over them despite their homeland being ruled by the French. Many of these settlers, known as the Boers, moved inland to escape British oversight and pushed into land owned by the Zulus. Mpande, the new Zulu leader, attempted to keep the peace between the British and the Boers, but the treaties he negotiated on both sides only led to further conflict. Eventually, his son Cetshwayo peacefully took power over the Zulus around the same time that the Europeans discovered diamonds in South Africa. The government of Great Britain took an even greater interest in South Africa, stepping in to try to bribe or force the relucant natives to work the diamond mines established by European mining firms. Secretary of State Lord Carnarvon, who was responsible for the unification of colonies in Canada, made it his mission to unify the South African colonies and appointed Henry Bartle Frere as his governor and representative. Bartle Frere removed the local Capetown government, who had been largely sympathetic to the native peoples and opposed his harsh unification policies, then issued harsh and intentionally impossible demands against the Zulu. Cetshwayo refused to accept these demands, and thus began the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. ____________ Get the intro music here! http://bit.ly/1EQA5N7 *Music by Demetori: http://bit.ly/1AaJG4H Listen to the outro music here! http://bit.ly/1L6ihlE __________ Extra History - World War I: The Seminal Tragedy The Concert of Europe: http://bit.ly/1uLnt5X James Recommends - Mod Week!
