In this video I show a few examples of Montana native plants that can be found on the reclaimed parts of the Rosebud coal mine's Area C North. (Near Colstrip, MT.) The reclamation efforts at the Westmoreland Rosebud Mine are recognizably impressive! If you have never checked out the reclaimed lands around Colstrip, I encourage you to go out and do so! They are a prime example of environmental stewardship at it's best.

Full movie is available at: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/70028 100 years ago asbestos became known as a magic mineral and the use of millions of tons of asbestos created a very profitable industry. And for almost as long, the industry has known that asbestos is extremely dangerous to people. The documentary is part of the international awarded series "Late Lessons from Early Warnings" which explores how we have been able to respond to warnings about the hazards posed by some of the greatest technological innovations of the last century. We have not always been that successful.

Lang Hancock started mining blue asbestos with Aboriginal labour in the Hamersley Ranges in the 1930s. In 1943 he started the Wttenoom Asbestos Mine in Wittenoom Gorge. He did not go to the war because asbestos was essential for the war effort. He sold the mine to the Australian Blue Asbestos company in 1948 but stayed on as manager. After the company closed the mine in 1966, Hancock and Wright used the mine buildings and village as their headquarters. The town remained open until the mid 1980s. Thousands of immigrants and Aboriginal people worked at Wittenoom and at Point Samson, or on the transport trucks. Many died from Lung diseases. Asbestos fibres were used to make the school playgrounds and throughout the town. In 2005 the powerhouse was closed and less than 8 residents remained. The old mine buildings were demolished and buried in 2003, however the tailings have not been cleaned up. Mountains of deadly tailings remain in the beautiful gorge, washing down the creeks. Wittenoom Gorge remains an important place for the Banyjima Aborginal people. The Australian government wants to forget about this mining disaster, In 2012 the minesite remains a deadly hazard in an otherwise beautiful landscape.

The Witwatersrand is a 56-kilometre-long north-facing scarp in the Gauteng Province of South Africa. It consists of a hard, erosion-resistant quartzite sedimentary rock, over which several north-flowing rivers form waterfalls, which account for the name “Witwatersrand”, meaning the “ridge of white waters” in Afrikaans. This east–west-running scarp can be traced with only one short gap from Bedfordview in the east, through Johannesburg and Roodepoort, to Krugersdorp in the west. The scarp forms the northern edge of a 7- to 10-kilometre-wide plateau which rises about 200 m above the surrounding plains of the Highveld. The entire plateau-like structure is also often called the “Witwatersrand”. The plateau’s elevation above sea-level is between 1700–1800 m. This video is targeted to blind users.

Wittenoom Western Australia04:06 - 3 years ago AA 1976 Infamous asbestos mining town in the heart of the Pilbara There is something very bitter-sweet about Wittenoom. This near ghost town set at the mouth of the Wittenoom Gorge is the home of Australia¹s greatest industrial disaster and yet it is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the Pilbara. Located 1450 km north of Perth and 460 m above sea level this once thriving settlement is in the heart of the beautiful Hamersley Range. It is ideally located for people wishing to visit the numerous gorges which cut through the range. However, as everyone in Australia now knows, Wittenoom is also in a valley of death.

Deadly Raw Blue Asbestos - Facts & Dangers - Products of Asbestos - Mesothelioma, and Asbestosis
Views: 12346 Adventures With Wild Warrior Bill
Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. This town in Western Australia has the baleful reputation of being home to the greatest industrial disaster in Australian history. Wittenoom was the site of an asbestos mine, where thousands of workers and their families were exposed to lethal levels of blue asbestos 1,000 times higher than was legally regulated at the time. Though the town was shut down in 1966, today the air remains contaminated and toxic to breathe if stirred, and the state of Western Australia has the highest rate of malignant mesothelioma per capita of anywhere in the world. Today, three residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas.

There is nothing really here anymore of the once populated town of Aurora. Still, it is my favorite ghost town so I wanted to make a couple of videos of where it once was. The following blogs clarify some of the things said in this video: http://tinyurl.com/7jpnp76 Errata: One correction that I think I need to make here is that I think the gunfighter William Carder was actually killed at the Exchange Saloon. A very similar sounding place. Although, the irony is I was probably standing a lot closer to where he was killed with my back within feet of the Exchange Saloon site when I said that in the video. That saloon was by where the gray car is parked and the guy is standing at 4:52. I'll make a note of it in the next video. There is some ambiguity in the books I have on this and the reason for my mistake.
