http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi CUMBERLAND - Despite having its history deeply rooted in the early days of coal mining, this village in the Comox Valley is adding its voice to others questioning whether a possible mine in the region is a good idea. Councillors for the village of Cumberland passed a motion calling for a more thorough environmental review of the Raven Underground Coal Project, which is being proposed for the Union Bay area. The village joins Courtenay, Comox and the Comox Valley Regional District in looking for an independent provincial baseline study as well as a federal joint review panel to look into the project. The communities are particularly interested in having aquifer mapping completed. The Wilderness Committee congratulated the municipalities on their unified approach to the proposed mine and said that environmental problems created by the project would be too great for the area. The committee's Vancouver Island Campaigner Torrance Coste said the mine would only have a lifespan of 16 years and would threaten several sustainable industries in the area.

Centralia, Pennsylvania was nearly entirely evacuated following a coal mine fire, burning beneath the town since 1962. Centralia’s fire started in 1962, when residents turned an old strip mine into a dump, and setting the rubbish alight. The fire spread through an unsealed opening to the underground coal mines, igniting a seam of coal, and the fire has been burning to this day. In 1992, Pennsylvania condemned the town and claimed it under eminent domain in an attempt for force the remaining residents out. Some sued, and were allowed to stay. A section of State Route 61 was abandoned after it began to buckle and crumble from the underground fire. The fire stretches 12km, and burns underneath an area of 15 square kilometres, 300 feet below ground, authorities say the fire could burn for another 250 years. The town now mostly attracts tourists who visit an abandoned highway, where many profanities and obscene pictures are spray painted onto it, over time the highway has earned the nickname Graffiti Highway. Centralia is rumored to have inspired Silent Hill.

What an unexpected discovery! Paul and I never imagined finding what we found deep in this abandoned copper mine in Arizona. The Warren-Bisbee Mine's obscure entrance was basically a rabbit hole and didn't look too promising. However, once we gained entry by sliding in on our backs, the tunnels opened up and were surprisingly extensive. One tunnel led us deep into the mine to an inner area where we found -- something. Something impressive. Something rare that I've only seen a few times in abandoned mines over the last seven years or so. And it's all here in this video. Enjoy! Don't forget: New videos are released at midnight (Pacific Time) on the 1st, 10th, and 20th of each month. View and use the information in my videos at your own risk. All abandoned mines (especially the ones in my videos) are very dangerous and should not be entered under any circumstances. No potentially life-threatening, dangerous, or legal decisions and assumptions should be made based on information in my videos.

The Secret World Of Gold | Gold Mining - Geographic History. It is impossible to know the exact date that humans first began to mine gold, but some of the oldest known gold artifacts were found in the Varna Necropolis in Bulgaria. The graves of the necropolis were built between 4700 and 4200 BC, indicating that gold mining could be at least 7000 years old. A group of German and Georgian archaeologists claims the Sakdrisi site in southern Georgia, dating to the 3rd or 4th millennium BC, may be the world's oldest known gold mine.

Economic and social conditions contribute greatly to the lack of educational opportunities suffered by the women in Bolivian mining communities as the inequality in education and literacy between urban and rural residents is vast. Bolivia ranks 108th out of 186 in the Human Development Index and 97th out of 186 on the Gender Inequality Index. Bolivia has suffered economically from its landlocked position and political and social instability which have impeded its prospects for sustainable economic growth.

This is a primitive (as well as illegal) gold mining operation deep in the jungle of Liberia, West Africa. The gravel is washed, allowing the alluvial gold dust to be carried by the water through the holes in the head pan and into the carpet (miners moss) on the sluice tray. The gold is recovered by carefully rinsing the carpet.

GOLD BELL MINE All level workings of the mine are accessible, although timber sills in the 1782w drift are in poor condition and may soon render higher parts of the 82 vein unapproachable. Natural ventilation has been good since the shaft on the 3500 vein linking the 1200 and 600 levels was completed. Rails and air-lines are intact, as is the hoist at the head of the 3500 vein shaft on 600 level. Most of the movable mine equipment has, however, been sold, and the remainder is on sale. The power-line was damaged by a snowslide in the spring of 1949, and other snowslides in this same year partly or completely.demolished the mill, mill office, cook-house, and several other buildings. Most of the mill machinery had been removedprior to the catastrophe.

www.minecristal.ca Stay informed about our new videos: subscribe to our YouTube channel "Mine Cristal". This mine is located in Bonsecours, Quebec, Canada. Photos and video clips shown here date from 1989 - 2012. The open-pit mine produces splendid quartz crystals with exceptional clarity. The largest single crystals measure 60 cm (24 inches) in length. Since mining began in 1989, 32 types, or morphologies of quartz crystals have been catalogued. Geological research into the origins of these crystals has revealed that they formed at this location some 300 million years ago under extreme conditions of heat and pressure. We harvest crystals in the mine only as needed, to supply our store with a sufficient quantity of quartz crystals. Exceptionally (for a mine), we harvest all the crystals by hand and without the use of dynamite. It is a privilege for us to participate in the discovery and extraction of these true gems of nature. The extraction process is done in a manner which respects both the environment and the crystals: we endeavor to keep the crystals whole and in a pristine state. In the museum and the store, our crystals are presented in an untouched, natural state. Amazingly, each crystal is an intricate work of art made by Nature; no two are alike and this makes them even more fascinating! Mine Cristal is considered by experts to be a “geological gem,” one of Canada’s great natural sites, due to it’s unique and abundant mineralogical deposits.

From abandoned islands, to obscure hidden places, these are 10 UNUSUAL Abandoned Places in Canada Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 10. Cole Island Location - British Columbia 9.Bankhead Location - Alberta 8.The Guild Inn Location - Ontario Locally known as The Guild,this abandoned place was once an impressive hotel in Scarborough Toronto. Since 1914, the property has switched owners many times. It was even used as a Foreign Mission House for the Roman Catholic Church. What's more impressive than the buildings, is the 90 acres around them. The families that owned the property combined many different architectural styles to create gardens that could rival any property in Europe. For a long time everything on the property was abandoned, nowadays, the gardens serve as a great spot for intimate weddings, and there have been major talks about reviving the hotel too. 7.Stanley Park Zoo Location - British Columbia 6.Val Jalbert Location - Quebec. My French is not great; so lets just get it out of the way; Val Jalbert is located in Quebec and it is listed as a ghost town. Its easy to see why with photos like this one. The village sprung to existence because of the successful pulp mill in the area. What is a pulp mill you ask? Its an integral part for the creation of PAPER AND STUFF! You take some wood chips add some magic and then you have FIBERBOARD ! The village was founded in 1901 and by 1929 all the homes in the area were boarded up and everyone was ordered to leave…. In the 1960s the location was transformed into a public park. YAY ! Now everyone can enjoy the nature and check out the homes of the workers that used to work in the mill. 5.Celanese Power House Location - Alberta 4.Grain Elevators Location - Alberta This is not just one site, the countryside of Alberta seems to be littered with dilapidated grain elevators. Like this one in Herronton, a very small town near Calgary. Or this one in Brant. Grain elevators commonly refer to buildings that store grain, but they can also refer to what we see in these pictures, towers containing bucket elevators that load up containers with grain. Locals have tried to preserve as much as they can, and have even started the Alberta Grain Elevator Society ! 3.Camp 30 Location - Ontario 2.Partridge Island Location - New Brunswick This island has quite a long history, located within the city of Saint John, the island was first used as a quarantine station in 1785. It also had a lighthouse and military post on it. During the Irish Potato Famine it is estimated that around 30,000 people passed through the island for processing, with around 1200 actually dying there. And by 1890, 78,000 immigrants passed through the island a year. The most famous part of the island is the Celtic cross dedicated to those who passed on the island. There was a museum near the cross that operated until 1995. Since then, the island has become almost a rite of passage for teenagers in the area. With so much to explore, its easy to see how you can be attracted to the haunting past of the land. 1.Queen of Sidney Location - British Columbia

Galena Mining Ltd (ASX:G1A) managing director Alex Molyneux speaks to Proactive Investors about the base metals-focused company’s Abra Lead-Silver Project in Western Australia. Galena’s recently completed scoping study at Abra has confirmed as an economically and technically robust opportunity with potential to become a long-life, high-margin base metals mine. “Galena as a company is very focused on starting the development of the Abra project in 2019,” Molyneux says. He continues, “There’s a lot happening in the second half of 2018 to lead you into that. The first thing is, as we said, we’re immediately moving the scoping study into a pre-feasibility study, so the company will declare reserves, we’ll put a lot more information out around the economics of the project. “At the same time there is the infill drilling program continuing, so there’s going to be more drilling results … that will lead into a revised resource. There’s work also going on with respect to offtakes, logistics contracts, all those kinds of practical pieces of work that happen as you go into the development phase.”

Some of the craziest things will wash up after a big storm like an entire yacht on top of a building and soccer ball across the country! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 6. A Japanese Dock This piece of debris happened to be part of a Japanese dock that was torn from its moorings during the tsunami and washed up on the shores of Oregon and brought back what researchers believe to be about 100 tons of sea life. Scientists from the Oregon State University state that the 66-foot-long deck has around 13 pounds of organisms per square foot. The dock did not show any signs of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown caused by the tsunami, but it did pose the threat of carrying invasive species. What that means is that these creatures that aren’t natives to the area could potentially throw the local ecosystems out of whack and cause irreparable damage to the native wildlife, such as the dread zebra mussel. 5. A Mystery Creature There have been some unusual things that have washed up on random shores after tsunamis, this being one of them. After the 2011 tsunami hit, this giant white mass had been washed out onto the shore of Japan and had many of the locals, along with everyone who watched this video on YouTube, wondering what it even was? Some thought it to be a brand new creature that had risen from the dark depths of the ocean floor while others speculated it was merely a large rock or boulder. Don’t worry, officials have concluded that this isn’t some new species that’s going to wipe us out. They simply stated that it’s most likely just a mass of whale blubber from the carcass of a dead whale that’s pretty much unrecognizable. 4. A Shipping Tote Back in November of 2014, this shipping tote had washed up near the shores of Seal Rock in Oregon. This 4-by-5 foot plastic shipping tote had been floating out at sea for the last 3 years since the tsunami struck and amassed around 200 blue mussels that were attached to it. Like the dock that was found in 2012, this tote was a potential host for carrying invasive species and scientist eventually determined it as a non-threat to the surrounding environment. Still, the amount of debris, the total estimated to be around 18.11 million tons with 70 percent of the debris sinking to the bottom of the ocean, is still rather high and is still washing up years after that tragic event took place. 3. Various Trash A barge from the fishing town of Ucluelet in British Columbia had carried in around “super sacks” of debris caused by the tsunami. Those sacks are designed to hold up to 1,000 pounds, so you can only imagine how heavy all that weight could possibly be. Ever since the tsunami struck, there have been volunteer pickups in the town where local and Japanese students have gotten involved. They’ve managed to collect all different sorts of garbage such as styrofoam, pieces of Japanese houses, and other debris. Though they’ve made progress, their results haven’t been achieved through smooth sailing. The coastline of Ucluelet is described as remote and rugged which made the cleanups very difficult and the fact that there was already debris unrelated to the tsunami already there makes for even more trash than expected. 2. An Entire Ship This yacht happened to be discovered in the Iwate Prefecture in Northeastern Japan in the town of Otsuchi nearly two months after the tsunami had hit. The ship weighs in at an incredible 200 tons and it’s a huge surprise that the two-story building that is supporting all that weight is still somehow managing to keep from collapsing. It’s hard to even process the amount of force needed to lift the ship. 1. A House As one of the most powerful and deadly disasters that can occur in nature, the tsunami is one that leaves devastation in its wake. Their sheer force can only be imagined by those who have never witnessed what it can be capable of at first hand and even then you can never come close to doing it justice. Take for example this house that was a part of the Fukushima debris. This was someone’s entire home where they built a life for themselves around it and in a matter of moments, it was swept off its foundation and carried out into the sea, along with what is estimated to be another 200,000 buildings.

EP1) Hunting for Top Quality Rough Translucent Black Jadeite Jade 2018 @ Mandalay Jade Market https://www.heavensstonez.com/single-post/2018/12/06/Hunting-for-Top-Quality-Rough-Translucent-Black-Jadeite-Jade-2018-Mandalay-Jade-Market The following series of 3 videos are a look into a secret culture that few have explored in-depth. My path follows the search for the elusive translucent black Omphacite-Jadeite gemstones of Myanmar. Traveling with my Burmese translator and Burmese Black Jadeite expert, we scan the Mandalay Jade market leaving no stone unturned. Our search often leads us to low quality, high priced rough with little to no visible windows. Once in a while however, you can find quality high quality pieces for sale at extremely high prices, at this point it becomes a blind gamble to know exactly what can be cut to produce pieces that will pay for the high cost of the rough stone while also providing for a profit. Another factor to consider when buying jadeite in Mandalay is how to safely transfer large amounts of cash in open markets without proper security measures in place. My guide explained that this is solved by transferring money to Myanmar bank accounts which is mostly done by the Chinese buyers from Chinese Banks as the Chinese control the whole monopoly on Jade at the Mandalay Jade Market as well as contribute to the continual increase in jadeite prices. Deep inside the market they have many stalls with cutting saws of all varieties, utilizing the simplest forms of handmade equipment. Many buyers purchase stone from the outer market and take them to be cut inside this zone. There are also many tables of Chinese buyers waiting with signs that read “Black Jade” . These buyers attempt to buy up all available black jadeite at the market which they will then send to China to be perfectly cut by digitalized laser cutting equipment. Thousands of people crowd the market with motorbikes and horns blowing making for a busy and exciting atmosphere. As the morning slowly turns into afternoon, the search for quality rough becomes less likely. Finally, at the edge of the market we find 3 pieces of quality rough that have been polished on all surfaces. They look nice but there is no telling what will be inside once they are cut, my expert guide explains to me that the dealer will try and only show areas of the stone that are beautiful with polished windows but if the whole piece is polished then it means that it is of a higher grade. Although these three small polished pieces of translucent black omphacite jadeite are gorgeous the price tag is far too high. The dealer wanted 10 million Kyat (7000 US dollars) and with the uncertainty about whats inside and what could be cut from these pieces, it was deemed by my local expert to be too risky of a purchase.

Authorities have shut down scores of mines in the northwestern province of Cordoba in a crackdown on illegal mining that started in September. About 400 police took part in the sweep.
