Volvo FMX 10x6 giant tipper in the mine
 
04:13
www.hyva.com Mines are among the most difficult terrains for trucks designed to carry the overburden and the mined material. The extremely harsh environment, rough terrain and heaviness of the transported material require vehicles of high reliability and increased efficiency. More and more often these requirements force the manufacturers of mine vehicles equipped with tipping system to look for innovative and unique solutions in order to meet strict requirements and generate greater profits for their users. Hyva, for many years the world leader in the manufacture and sale of hydraulic systems, has developed a new line of reinforced ALPHA Heavy Duty cylinders. The core idea of the new HYVA ALPHA system is to develop an innovative system with much greater competitiveness, making it possible to follow the most important trends in the industry and transportation. Individual market segments require different transport solutions and different types of tipper bodies. By taking an individualised approach to this issue, HYVA engineers have been able to create unique solutions. The ALPHA generation makes it possible to complete the whole tipping system containing the cylinder in a purposeful way, thus ensuring reliability and optimising the purchase cost of the entire system. The new line of the hydraulic system sticks to the same proven idea of constructing HYVA cylinders, which distinguishes them from those offered by other manufacturers. The higher operating safety offered by ALPHA systems has been achieved by introducing several innovations to the new series, such as the new design of the cylinder, the new hydraulic valve as well as more precise and faster-operating tipping angle limiters. Another new feature of the whole generation of ALPHA cylinders is that they make it possible to reduce the weight of the whole tipping system and reduce the time of unloading. An unquestionable advantage of HYVA hydraulic systems is that they maintain, and in some cases even exceed, the lifting capacity at reduced weight and dimensions. The new ALPHA line cylinders have the operating pressure of 250 bar, thus resulting in no limitations as compared to current standards. The advantages mentioned here, as well as the thousands of cylinders with the HYVA logo which operate all over the world in all types of climate, consolidate HYVA’s position as the world leader in the manufacture of telescope cylinders.

Environmental impacts of mining ASPBM - EEFA 2015
 
09:44
Environmental Festival Film 2015 - Albania. This short film aims to demonstrate the environmental impacts of chromium ore mines in Mati River springs at Krasta Region in Bulqiza district. In recent years the mining sector has been intensively developed but without environmental criteria. From the site surveys during 28/29 March 2015 it is noted an intense environmental impact as; mine waste disposal at river stream, sparse access roads associated with habitat fragmentation and induced erosion; loss of productive soil and threatening of red list endemic plant species (Crocus serpentini). The mining operations use also wood timber that is an added burden to the existing over cut forests in the area. We want to raise the awareness the public and other stakeholders that such mining is destroying the environmental resources and society health and prospective. The legislation to prevent such impacts exists but must be enforced from authorities. The companies must take their environmental and social responsibility; Investing little today will save our future. Civil society and the public must put under pressure the enforcement authorities and raise their voice for such catastrophic situation. We hope that this short movie will scratch everybody conscience to help in the environmental protection.

This report investigates what is being named the biggest disaster in Brazil's mining history. A horror mudslide swept through the towns and villages in the Gualaxo River Valley, destroying homes, businesses and taking the lives of 19 people. A tailings dam, holding back more than 50 million cubic metres of mining waste collapsed, unleashing a wave of mud several metres high. "The mud dragged me down, I would come up, it would take me down again... I screamed but nobody answered", remembers Priscila Barros, who was pulled four kilometers under the deadly slurry. The mud, containing lead, arsenic and other toxic chemicals, continued down river all the way to the Atlantic coast 600km away. "This mud wave has killed anything that was alive in these water systems", explains Marilene Ramos of the Brazilian Environment Authority. Now Brazilian police are seeking the arrest of 12 of Samarco's executives for negligent homicide and crimes against the environment. "A dam doesn't break by chance. There is repeated, continual negligence in the actions of a company owned by Vale and BHP", says prosecutor Carlos Eduardo Pinto.

Adaro Coal Mining Visualization
 
06:27
Adaro Energy needed to communicate their post mining plans to the Indonesian government and various NGO's. As most of us can imagine, open cut coal mining is a contentious environmental issue at any time, and especially so when large amounts of forest and rubber plantations are cleared to make way for this process. A large volume of information was to be conveyed to the audience and this meant the typical corporate documentary was never going to work. We developed a narrative, delivered as a short film, and driven by 2 animated characters that provided the technical information. This was combined with hyper-realistic coal mining and environment simulations.

Australia's biodiversity: mining
 
06:13
Mining occurs throughout Australia, but its direct impacts on biodiversity are relatively limited compared with other major land uses because the areas affected are generally small. Dr Alan Andersen talks about the main impacts of mining on biodiversity and how these can be appropriately managed through processes like strategic regional assessments, use of bioindicators in rehabilitation, and biodiversity offsets.

Fleet Management: Using Data to Successfully Manage Ultra-Class Trucks
 
05:46
Anglo-American’s Dawson Mine lies in the rich coal country of Central Queensland, Australia. It’s a very busy site in a tough environment, and the mine’s large hauling fleet produces a lot of health data — data that was difficult and time-consuming to sift through. As a result, maintenance of the machines was more reactive than proactive. To improve the site’s fleet uptime, Cat dealer Hastings-Deering employed a Condition Monitoring program that has been enabled by Cat Equipment Care Advisor — a web-based tool that combines equipment and application data with real-time analytics, plus the combined expertise of the global dealer network. This implementation is helping the mine better plan and schedule repairs before problems escalate — reducing costs and improving the availability of the fleet.
Making Mining Work for Zambia: Economic, Health, & Environmental Nexus of the Copper Mining Economy
 
03:54
Zambia's rich mineral resources are one of the country's most important assets. They contribute to national income, exports, employment and government revenue. As the country looks to the future, Zambia faces important choices on how to manage its mineral wealth. There are trade-offs in the design of the mining fiscal regime. Mining inevitably entails environmental and public health risks. Mining firms make choices about procurement that influences the industry's contribution to the Zambian economy. This brief video introduces the World Bank's Fifth Zambia Economic Brief "Making Mining Work for Zambia: The Economic, Health, and Environmental Nexus of Zambia's Copper Mining Economy," which was released in June 2015. It asks how Zambia can uses its mineral resources to help the country achieve its economic development ambitions. The report suggests areas where the government, business community, and civil society can collaborate to enhance the contribution of mining to Zambia.

A Commitment to the Mining Industry
 
08:31
Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.

Wide of El Estrecho valley STORYLINE: Chile's environmental regulator blocked Canada-based Barrick Gold Corporation's multi-billion dollar mining project in the country on Friday, and imposed its maximum fine, citing "serious" environmental violations. After a four-month investigation, Chile's Environmental Superintendent said all construction work on the Pascua-Lama mine must stop until Barrick builds the systems it promised to put in place for containing contaminated water. Chile's government also imposed a fine of eight billion pesos (16.36 million US dollars), the highest possible under Chilean law. The violations include: failing to build structures to contain contaminated water before mine construction began, failing to keep the agency informed about problems and changes, and failing to provide data sought by inspectors. The regulator noted that while Barrick itself reported the failures, a separate and intensive investigation by the agency's own inspectors found that the company wasn't telling the full truth. The Pascua-Lama gold mine straddles the Andean border with Argentina. People from the Diaguita indigenous group whose community lives downstream from the mine allege that their water supply and glaciers have been contaminated by the construction work. The Diaguita people who live in small towns along rivers that flow down from the mine were feeling a sense of victory on Friday. "Even though we seem so small, we could beat Barrick, which is a giant," said one community member Osvaldina Guzman Villegas. The sanctions don't mean the end of the Pascua-Lama mining project. Barrick has committed to 30 million US dollars in remedial work and the agency urged the company to do this quickly, starting with temporary measures to contain any runoff while it builds more permanent structures. Barrick did not immediately respond to messages The Associated Press left with the bi-national mine's spokesmen in Chile and Argentina.

MINING IMPACTS
 
03:40
Take a look at the impact of a sand mining operation on the environment and traffic. The sand plant projected for the El Monte Valley covers approximately 500 acres. Multiply what you see in this video by 50 and you may have the right image of what that would look like, sound like, feel like for our valley. We counted three to five trucks per minute entering and exiting the sand and gravel operation. The sand plant in Lakeside would use around 400 trucks per day which would greatly impact the traffic on Willow Rd., El Monte Rd., Mapleview Street, Highway 67, Lake Jennings Rd. and Highway I-8. Imagine the noise, the pollution and the high risk for accidents, especially around El Capitan high school area during drop off and pick up time. Hundreds of heavy trucks like the ones you'll see in this video will certainly damage the roads and will significantly raise the pollution level in our town. Moreover, it will greatly affect the local businesses, the quality of our lives and the public health. Please join our fight to stop the sand mining project in the El Monte Valley.

8 Worst Man-Made Environmental Disasters in History
 
11:56
Worst man-made environmental disasters in history. These world tragedies & insane nature disasters caused severe damage! Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] 8 Deepwater Horizon Offshore drilling contractor Transocean owned the rig & had leased it to oil giant British Petroleum or BP. Two days after, the platform sank & caused a petroleum leak that continued for almost three months. US government reported that approximately 4.2 million barrels of oil had been released. Aside from impacting 43,300 miles of ocean, the spill affected 1,300 miles of coastline from Florida to Texas. 7 Kuwait Fires The sun was darkened by the oily smoke plumes that shot high into the sky. People who ventured outside experienced breathing difficulties & one US environmentalist compared the effect to that of standing behind the exhaust pipes of hundreds of malfunctioning diesel trucks’. The fires burned for approximately seven months. Black rain, a mixture of smoke particles & natural precipitation fell as far as the Himalayas & the landscape became covered with hundreds of oil lakes, of up to four inches in depth. Birds confused the lakes for water. Smoke, ash & soot covered the Gulf. Livestock & the oily mist blackened the lungs of the animals. 6 Reactor Shutdown The reactor shutdown that took place on the 26th of April, 1986, is considered to be one of the worst in history. Many cases were subsequently connected to the massive spread of radioactive material. Wide areas of Belarus, Ukraine & the Russian Federation, inhabited by millions of people, were affected. It went as far as the British Isles. It’s estimated that at least 5% of the reactor core was released into the atmosphere & downwind as result of the blast. 5 Minamata Disease In the early 1950s the people inhabiting the small coastal city of Minamata in the south of Japan, began to notice animal behavior that was startling & out of the ordinary. Fish would inexplicably go belly up, birds crashed into the ground & cats would foam at the mouth & jump into the sea. It was not long that humans too began to exhibit unusual behavior that would later be referred to as the Minamata Disease. People would be stumbling about, slurring their words & encountering difficulties with the simplest day-to-day tasks. In 1958, the root of the strange behavior was finally discovered. As part of its manufacturing process, one of Minamata’s biggest employers, the Chisso Corporation chemical company had been dumping mercury into the sea. 4 Baia Mare Cyanide Spill The Baia Mare cyanide spill took place in Romania in the year 2000. A gold mining company called Aurul, a jointventure of the Romanian government & an Australian company called Esmeralda Exploration had been shipping its waste material to a dam near Bozinta Mare, Maramures County. The company had been extracting the remaining gold from the tailings through a process called gold cyanidation with the resulting waste then being taken to the dam. On the 30th of January, 2000, the dam burst sending 3,500,000 feet of cyanide-contaminated water into the Somes River & some of the surrounding farmland. 3 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill 260,000 to 750,000 barrels of crude oil were spilled in Prince William Sound, Alaska, on the 24th of March, 1989. It happened because of the Exxon Valdez oil tanker. The oil ultimately covered 1,300 miles of coastline & 11,000 square miles of ocean. A number of factors were cited as having contributed to the tanker’s crash. These included an insufficient & fatigued crew, possible problems with the ship’s Raytheon Collision Avoidance System radar or the lack of advanced monitoring equipment. Public blame also fell on the ship’s captain, Joseph Hazelwood, who was not present at the controls at the time as he was still sleeping after reportedly having drunk heavily the previous night. 2 Union Carbide Gas Leak On the 2nd of December 1984, 30 tons of a highly toxic gas called methyl isocyanate & a number of other gases were released following an accident at the Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal, India. The low-lingering gases caused the eyes & throats to burn & induced nausea. Thousands of people were treated in the immediate aftermath for various ailments including blindness & liver & kidney failure. The Great Smog Also known as the ‘Big Smoke’, the Great Smog took place on the European continent. For five days in December 1952, the city of London was brought to a standstill by heavy fog combined with sulfurous fumes from power plants, coal fires & vehicle exhaust. The dense smoke blocked out the sun as it began to enshroud several of the city’s landmarks, such as Big Ben, London Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral & others. At first, Londoners tried to ignore the foul air as best they could, but within an hour it could no longer be overlooked.

Russia Is Profiting Off Global Warming | VICE on HBO
 
12:10
While many parts of the world are struggling from catastrophic effects of climate change, Russia is looking to capitalize on it, with the Kremlin driving a narrative that touts the economic benefits. Like more and faster access to petroleum and mineral reserves that were previously unreachable. The Northern Sea Passage, a legendary shipping lane along Russia’s Arctic coastline, has been largely inaccessible for part of the year because of dense sea ice. But now, that ice is melting, opening up a new trade route for Russia's cargo ships. Russian oil companies are already betting big on the new reserves they hope to find in the Russian Arctic, and other industries — like mining — are ramping up production since they now have faster shipping routes to many ports. “The problem of climate change is actually the problem of adaptation to climate change. This is not a tragedy,” said Nobel Prize-winning climatologist Oleg Anisimov. “Certainly some places will become unlivable, but other areas are places that will become more livable.” But the Russian people seem unaware, or unconcerned, about the environmental impacts of these climate change-related activities, like pollution from the booming factories, and wildfires in the North that destroyed million of acres of forest in a major tourism area. VICE’s Gianna Toboni visited Russia's Arctic to see just how big the country is betting on climate change.

Are Electric Cars Really Green?

Are electric cars greener than conventional gasoline cars? If so, how much greener? What about the CO2 emissions produced during electric cars' production? And where does the electricity that powers electric cars come from? Environmental economist Bjorn Lomborg, director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, examines how environmentally friendly electric cars really are.

So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don’t burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating “zero emissions.” But do they really? Let’s take a closer look. First, there’s the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an electric car comes from the energy used make the car itself, especially the battery. The mining of lithium, for instance, is not a green activity. When an electric car rolls off the production line, it’s already been responsible for more than 25,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide emission. The amount for making a conventional car: just 16,000 pounds. But that’s not the end of the CO2 emissions. Because while it’s true that electric cars don’t run on gasoline, they do run on electricity, which, in the U.S. is often produced by another fossil fuel -- coal. As green venture capitalist Vinod Khosla likes to point out, "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro. So throughout the full life of an electric car, it will emit just three to five tons less CO2. In Europe, on its European Trading System, it currently costs $7 to cut one ton of CO2. So the entire climate benefit of an electric car is about $35. Yet the U.S. federal government essentially provides electric car buyers with a subsidy of up to $7,500. Paying $7,500 for something you could get for $35 is a very poor deal. And that doesn’t include the billions more in federal and state grants, loans and tax write-offs that go directly to battery and electric-car makers The other main benefit from electric cars is supposed to be lower pollution. But remember Vinod Khosla’s observation "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." Yes, it might be powered by coal, proponents will say, but unlike the regular car, coal plant emissions are far away from the city centers where most people live and where damage from air pollution is greatest. However, new research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that while gasoline cars pollute closer to home, coal-fired power actually pollutes more -- a lot more.

Goa's Mines Bleed Its Environment Dry
 
03:03
Unmonitored mining has boomed in Goa in recent years and has had dire effects on the environment. The Goa mining industry is thriving, but its impact on nature and the local population is disastrous. 8% of the state surface is already being mined, mostly to extract iron ore that is exported to China. Over 825 mining sites exist throughout the state, and a large number of projects have been given government's clearance. The very large scale and intensive nature of mining exploitation is a serious challenge to Goa's fragile ecosystem. Indeed, 90 % of Goa's mining leases are within notified wildlife sanctuaries and reserve forests. Large areas of fertile agricultural lands have also been diverted for mining. Huge quantities of mining particles are deposited in rivers, contaminating water sources. Devidas Gaonkar, our Community Correspondent in Goa, has been personally affected by the issue. Belonging to a tribal community, he has witnessed how mining exploitation has encroached on natural resources that are so crucial to sustain life in Goa. His village has been flooded recently because of this excessive mining in the area. In his video, Devidas gives us a powerful and articulate description on how mining is impacting the environment. Deforestation due to mining activity is causing soil erosion and siltation, increasing the risk of flooding and impacting ground water, potentially causing water shortage. With his video, Devidas is adding his voice to the chorus of activists who incessantly warn the government against the risk of excessive mining exploitation. Numerous common people like Devidas have also been courageously protesting mining in the streets and blocking vehicles passing through their villages. Devidas wishes his video to similarly raise awareness, with the hope that the government will soon put a halt to large-scale unmonitored mining, which is proving fatal for Goa's vegetation, water and biodiversity.

Coal & Allied fighting fatigue with the SmartCap
 
03:58
Coal & Allied's has introduced sweeping changes to the way it manages fatigue to ensure a safer workforce. It follows an incident between a haul truck and a grader at its Hunter valley Operations mine in 2011. One of the key changes has been the introduction of the SmartCaps to track and analyse fatigue, measuring alertness in real time. Coal & Allied says that the business has grown from 11 million tonnes a year to 14 million tonnes a year, proving that a focus on safety and reducing fatigue doesn't have to result in a less efficient workforce. This video features at the 2014 NSW Mining Health and Safety Conference where the theme is learning from the past for a safer future, with a focus on risk management and road and vehicle safety.
