Exploring a future record setting copper mine
 
06:02
Located 70-miles east of Phoenix is the town of Superior, and what one day will be the largest most productive copper mine in the United States. The only problem is the rich ore deposit is buried 7,000 feet underground. The owners of the mine haven't even started mining yet because they have to get to it first.

12 Biggest Mines

These huge open-pits in the ground can either be called mines or quarry and they give us amazing things like gold, silver, and copper! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 7. The Barrick Goldstrike Mine Owned and operated by Barrick Gold, which is the largest gold mining company, the goldstrike mine happens to be the largest gold mine in all of North America. Located in Eureka County, Nevada, the goldstrike mine is comprised of 3 different mines, the larger of the three is the Betze-Post open-pit mine, the Meikle, and the Rodeo, both of which are found underground. This complex of mines is also the largest Carlin-type mine in the world. First opened way back in 1986, the mine not only produces gold but silver as well, which just so happens to be where Nevada gets its famous nickname, the “Silver State”, from. 6. The Oyu Tolgoi Mine The name for this combined open-pit mining project translates to Turquoise Hill and is located in the southern region of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. The mines that are filled with gold-copper ore deposits are actually relatively new and were only recently discovered back in 2001 by the Canadian company Ivanhoe Mines. It’s expected that the mine will reach full capacity in the year 2021. It’s believed that this mine contains around 2,700,000 tons of copper and another 1.7 million ounces of gold. Like with all other mines, the environmental impact that the Oyu Tolgoi mine is often criticized since it is located in such a dry area and uses more than one billion gallons of water each month. 5. The Chuquicamata (choo-kee-kə-mah-tə) Mine In terms of volume, the chuquicamata mine, or the “Chuqui” mine as it’s more commonly known is the second deepest open-pit mine on the planet. This mine can be found in the northern area of Chile where its main export is that of copper. This has been the country’s main export and staple that is crucial to how the people of Chile rely on an income and it’s here that the metal is called “Chile’s salary” ever since they became dependent on the copper industry back when the first World War ended. Copper actually makes up about a third of all the country’s foreign trade but that 33 percent was once at a high percentage of 75% a few years earlier. 4. The Dionysos Marble Quarry This quarry lies on the Penteli Mountain in the town and municipality of Dionysos, Attica in Greece. It’s here that the world famous Dionysos pentelicon marble is extracted. The quarry has been opened for more than a 100 years and it was back in 1949 that it was owned by the Dionysos Marble Company. The quarry currently has 2 underground sites and 9 above ground sites where the marble is extracted. The marble here is protected by law and is solely used for the Acropolis Restoration Project and other ancient buildings in Athens. 3. The Udachnaya Pipe The name of this open-pit mine literally translates to lucky pipe and can be found right outside of the Arctic Circle in Sakha Republic, Russia. This mine was discovered way back in June of 1955 and is believed to contain around 225.8 million carats of diamonds with an estimated 10.4 million carats harvested annually. The diamond mine was taken over by the Russian diamond company Alrosa back in 2010. This is mine also happens to be the third deepest open-pit mine in the world at a depth of 1,970 feet. 2. The Mir Mine Occasionally called the Mirny Mine, this was once a former open-pit diamond mine that is located in Mirny, Eastern Siberia, Russia. This mine reaches a depth of 1,722 feet deep, along with a diameter of 3,900 feet making it one of the largest excavated holes to ever exist. The mine was first discovered back in June of 1955 by a group of three Soviet geologists. It proved to be rather difficult as it seemed like there was always one problem arising after another. The cold winter months provided harsh conditions that slowed production, the mine suffered a flood in the 90’s, and surface operations would cease in June of 2001 with underground operations still moving forward until the whole mine was permanently shut down in 2004. 1. The Bingham Canyon Mine Known by the locals at the Kennecott Copper Mine, the Bingham Canyon Mine is located in the southwest region of Salt Lake City, Utah, in the United States. This massive chasm is known for being the largest man-made excavation in all of the world. Owned by the Rio Tinto Group, the production of this mine was started an astonishing 110-years ago and since then the mine measures at being 2.5 miles long, 0.6 miles deep, and covers a distance of 1,900 acres. The mine endured a tremendous landslide back in 2013 and then a smaller one later that same year.

ILWU Supports Rio Tinto Miners
 
03:23
On Friday April 16, International Longshore & Warehouse Union members in Vancouver, BC, Canada gathered on the sidewalks in front of the British Consulate in support of the miners of the Rio Tinto borax mine in Boron, California. Rio Tinto, the second largest mining company in the world, has locked out nearly 600 of its workers since January 31, 2010 from the I.L.W.U. Local 30 after trying to force a contract ultimatum onto its workers. I.L.W.U. members in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Boston and Vancouver united as one to let the public know of Rio Tintos' long and disgusting history with respect to their treatment of workers, communities and the environment in North America and around the world.

Breaking News  - ALEX BRUMMER: Rio Tinto is caught red-handed
 
07:27
There is something horribly familiar about the Rio Tinto scandal. It has all the elements that debase capitalism. Arrogant bosses in the shape of former chief executive Tom Albanese and Guy Elliott, a compliant board, a badly executed takeover and a cover-up of the extent of the damage.In addition, Rio went on to raise £4.2bn of debt in the United States and failed to disclose the valuation of its Mozambique coal mine fell from the £2.8bn it paid for it in 2011 to just £38m.Such risk-taking is associated with fly-by-night natural resource exploration. It is not the kind of behaviour you’d expect with the 13th largest FTSE 100 company with a market valuation of £47bn and a mining history dating back to 1873.But then there is nothing new under the sun. Shell was forced to pay heavy fines to the US authorities in 2004 after it had found faking the audited numbers for its global oil reserves to make itself look better.Rio has ditched the executives who came clean on the Mozambique adventure although the bigger sin was the way they blew away tens of billions of shareholder pounds on the misjudged Alcan takeover in 2007. Moreover, the still-unresolved bribery allegations in Guinea, subject of a Serious Fraud Office investigation, suggest Rio developed a gung-ho culture which was out of hand.The company has taken its punishment in Britain where it meekly paid a £27.4m fine, the largest levied by the Financial Conduct Authority for a listings breach. It faces far bigger damages in the US where fraud charges have been launched over the cover-up and misleading fundraising.Investors will rightly ask why independent Rio directors, auditors and other watchdogs failed to raise the alarm and allowed a buccaneering culture to develop. Pity that robust chairman Jan du Plessis is leaving for BT just at the moment when he is most needed to shore up the pillars in the mine.Confidence in Reckitt Benckiser has been challenged by recent setbacks. It has issued two sales downgrades, claiming changing consumer habits, suffered a cyber-attack, a Scholl footwear flop and a safety scandal which cost lives in South Korea.The company no longer walks on water and recognises it needs to bring governance and structure in line with current practice.Veteran chairman Adrian Bellamy is being ditched for former Pepsi boss Christopher Sinclair. Reckitt is adopting a more understandable structure by splitting into two units. Overpaid and rarely seen chief executive Rakesh Kapoor will still be in charge but will take main responsibility for Cillit Bang and the hygiene. And current Europe and North America boss Rob de Groot will run the new health unit.Shareholders will want to make sure this brings transparency to a group which shows marketing genius, but is often opaque.Reckitt has never been a shy dealmaker and most recently bought baby milk maker Mead Johnson for a whacking £12.7bn.It also sold its food business to McCormick. The current split could be the first step in floating off health, as it did with its drug treatment company Indivior in 2014. Alternatively, Reckitt could be simply preparing for more transactions.Two of the US’s biggest pharmaceutical companies are looking at parting with consumer healthcare.Pfizer is planning to dispose of its £11.5bn Centrum and Robitussin enterprise and Merck is thinking of doing the same with its brands, including Seven Seas.For the moment, new GlaxoSmithKline chief executive Emma Walmsley is holding firm against a spin-off of its1

High-flying Rio Tinto executive jailed after secret life as international drug smuggler was revealed
 
04:03
With a soaring career, private education and stunning fiancee, Sydney man Bennet Schwartz had everything he could have dreamed of.But it was 'greed' that motivated him to develop a double life as a criminal figure and begin transporting massive shipments of cocaine into Australia, NSW District Court Judge Peter Berman said during his sentencing on Thursday.Schwartz, 29, was charged with allegedly smuggling 23kg of cocaine with a street value of more than $7 million to Australia from the United States in 2016, A Current Affair reported.He was dragged off a plane by Australian Federal Police in front of his then-fiancee Sarah Wakefield, who is not alleged to have known anything about her soon-to-be husband's criminal activity.Once a high-flying executive at mining company Rio Tinto and weeks away from marrying the woman of his dreams, Schwatz's downfall was swift and brutal.Two packages containing 25 kilograms of cocaine were intercepted by Border Force and Australian Federal Police before his arrest.The privately-educated executive was to earn a huge payoff for his role in moving the powder to multiple alleged underworld figures in Sydney.Following his arrest, AFP officers took control of his military-grade encrypted Blackberry and began to act as him while communicating with other alleged crime figures believed to be linked to the drug syndicate.In two separate busts, officers intercepted one parcel from Los Angeles containing 15 kilograms of cocaine, labelled as car parts, and another containing 10 kilograms of the narcotic.During his time in prison, Schwartz has had a target on his back after being falsely labelled as a police informant because he had given officers access to his Blackberry.The Downing Centre District Court heard the Sydney man had been intimidated and brutally attacked during his time behind bars, and stood over as details of his privileged upbringing came to light.Kings Cross identity Elias Dimarelis, who was Schwartz's cellmate for nine months last year told ACA the man had been beaten over the head with a Breville sandwich press, stabbed and had a threat made against his life by another inmate demanding $30,000.Schwartz pleaded guilty to two charges of importing a commercial quantity of cocaine, and was handed down a heavily discounted sentence on Thursday.He will be eligible for parole in March 2020, but will have no fiancée and no executive career to return to.

Most Amazing Open-pit Mines in The World (diamonds, gold, silver, copper...) [igeoNews]
 
03:44
Contribute to the Project: http://igeo.tv/contribuye-al-proyecto/ The Bingham Canyon Mine, also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine, is an open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mine is owned by Rio Tinto Group, an international mining and exploration company headquartered in the United Kingdom. The copper operations at Bingham Canyon Mine are managed through Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation which operates the mine, a concentrator plant, a smelter, and a refinery. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (0.97 km) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 under the name Bingham Canyon Open Pit Copper Mine. The mine experienced a massive landslide in April of 2013 and a smaller slide in September of 2013. Udachnaya was discovered on June 15, 1955, just two days after the discovery of the diamond pipe Mir by Soviet geologist Vladimir Shchukin and his team. It is more than 600 metres (1,970 ft) deep, making it the third deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine and Chuquicamata). The nearby settlement of Udachny is named for the deposit. As of 2010, Udachnaya pipe is controlled by Russian diamond company Alrosa, which planned to halt open-pit mining in favor of underground mining in 2010. The mine has estimated reserves of 225.8 million carats of diamonds and an annual production capacity of 10.4 million carats Chuquicamata, or "Chuqui" as it is more familiarly known, is by excavated volume the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, just outside of Calama, 215 km northeast of Antofagasta and 1,240 km north of the capital, Santiago. The mine is owned and operated by Codelco, a Chilean state enterprise, since the Chilean nationalization of copper in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its depth of 850 metres (2,790 ft) makes it the second deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine in Utah, USA). The Diavik Diamond Mine is a diamond mine in the North Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada, about 300 kilometres (190 mi) north of Yellowknife. It has become an important part of the regional economy, employing 700, grossing C$100 million in sales, and producing approximately 7.5 million carats (1,500 kg (3,300 lb)) of diamonds annually.[2] The area was surveyed in 1992 and construction began in 2001, with production commencing in January 2003. It is connected by an ice road and Diavik Airport with a 5,235 ft (1,596 m) gravel runway regularly accommodating Boeing 737 jet aircraft. The Grasberg Mine is the largest gold mine and the third largest copper mine in the world. It is located in the province of Papua in Indonesia near Puncak Jaya, the highest mountain in Papua, and it has 19,500 employees. It is majority owned through a subsidiary by Freeport-McMoRan, which owns 90.64% of PT Freeport Indonesia, the principal operating subsidiary in Indonesia, including 9.36% owned through its wholly owned subsidiary, PT Indocopper Investama. The Government of Indonesia owns the remaining 9.36% of PT Freeport Indonesia. FCX operates under an agreement with the Government of Indonesia, which allows Freeport to conduct exploration, mining and production activities in a 24,700-acre area (Block A). It also conducts exploration activities in an approximate 500,000-acre area (Block B). All of Freeport's proven and probable mineral reserves and current mining operations are located in Block A. The 2006 production was 610,800 tonnes of copper; 58,474,392 grams of gold; and 174,458,971 grams of silver.

Sealie Vaughn West introduces 'Rio Tinto: Lost Coconuts' A historical, fictional narrative following the tale of a young boy dreaming of a better life SAN DIEGO -- Author Sealie Vaughn West is the reader's guide through time in "Rio Tinto: Lost Coconuts" (published by AuthorHouse). Opening with ancient history based on legend, West's novel leads into his personal history of growing up in the small Honduran village of Rio Tinto. Child abuse was common in the small Honduran village, but West realized his traumatic childhood was unique: isolated in the jungle, growing up without family, dreaming of a better life. A life that seemed unattainable, as seen in this excerpt from "Lonely Grains of White Sand," an introductory poem in the book: "I sit here on the lonely beach watching the sun go down as the bright orange glow fades away with each passing minute. On top of a sand dune, looking toward the sky to see what it tells me, No hope in sight, just looking, counting the white grains of sand, and trying to pass the time, on this lonely beach, the wind telling me that I will never leave, no hope in sight." Readers will be held captive by this historical narrative of pirates, slave trading, abuse and the hope for a better life.

RIO TINTO RELEASES EARNINGS RESULTS TODAY. DAN MORGAN OF UBS TELLS REUTERS WHY HE PREFERS RIO TINTO STOCKS OVER BHP. SHOWS: SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (February 14, 2013) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) DAN MORGAN, GLOBAL COMMODITY ANALYST, UBS 1. REPORTER OFF CAMERA SAYING: "Crude oil prices are trading strongly positive in 2013. How much more strength do you see in them and why?" 2. DAN MORGAN SAYING: "You know crude oil's been another one of the commodities in the suite that's been rising the last few months, along with this buoyancy and risk appetite. Further upside from here, I don't see too much more. There is a large supply growth forecast out of emerging regions that have been forgotten about the last few years, such as Iraq and the United States. The shale oil revolution in the United States will bring supply growth to the market the next few years. And those factors of supply and a recovering demand should see at least a little bit of a cap to price upside." 3. REPORTER OFF CAMERA SAYING: "What is your view on gold prices turning negative for 2013?" 4. DAN MORGAN SAYING: "Gold, there's a lot of gold bugs out there. Myself personally I'm not one of them as I said earlier. I'm a bull on the U.S. recovery. And what does a U.S. recovery mean for gold? Well it should mean higher strength in the U.S. dollar which has a downward effect on gold. And I think we're a few years away from seeing inflation unleashed on the world. Productive capacity is still not being filled. So I don't see gold getting higher than this. I would see it easing over 2013 as the U.S. recovery takes hold." 5. REPORTER OFF CAMERA SAYING: "Rio Tinto is out with results today. What will the earnings of the diversified commodities company look like given iron ore prices have been volatile?" 6. DAN MORGAN SAYING: "Yeah, so Rio reporting later this afternoon. Earnings should be quite substantially down on a year earlier, reflecting the commodity price suite that existed in the second half of last year. So investors are expecting that. Earnings to be down, they're going to talk about write-downs. But what are we going to be looking to? What new information are we going to be focusing on? And that's going to be their updated views on what they can do regarding costs and capital. So these major miners have been talking a lot about bringing costs out of the business. They've given quantification at three billion dollars on a sustaining basis. And investors want to know "how is that program going?" and "is there any further upside?" So that's going to be a key focus as well as what capital spending plans the company has going forward." 7. REPORTER OFF CAMERA SAYING: "You have a buy on Rio. How does BHP stack up against Rio, which is your most preferred stock?" 8. DAN MORGAN SAYING: "So Rio and BHP both provide sound exposure to this reflationary cycle we're going through. So both stocks are preferred. We like Rio a little bit more. There's several reasons for that. It's on lower valuation multiples so whether you look at a lower discount to a MVP, lower earnings multiples. It just screams cheaper than BHP. The other thing is that Rio has some earnings growth coming this year from sectors like the Oyu Tolgoi copper project coming online this year. And they should be benefitting from a step change in prices for mineral sands. So this should drive earnings upside for the company and of course, its exposure to the iron ore price rally which we've seen over the past several months. So that's why we prefer Rio to BHP. But for investors who prefer to play the energy space, particularly oil prices, BHP obviously has an in-built better exposure to that."

Bingham Canyon Mine, The Largest Open-Pit Mines in the World
 
01:08
The Bingham Canyon Mine, also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine, is an open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The Bingham Canyon Mine is one of the largest open-pit mines in the world, measuring more than 4 kilometers or 2.5 miles wide and 1,200 meters or 3,900 feet deep. Since 1906, when the first steam shovels began removing waste rock from the sides of the mountain to reach the low-grade copper ore deposits,Bingham Canyon Mine has yielded more than 19 million tons of copper, 23 million ounces of gold, 190 million ounces of silver, plus other minerals. The value of the resources extracted from here is greater than the Comstock Lode, Klondike, and California gold rush mining regions combined! Bingham Canyon discovered in 1848 by two brothers, Sanford and Thomas Bingham. Although they reported the find to their leader, Brigham Young advised against pursuing mining operations because the survival and establishment of Mormon settlements was of greater importance at that time. It was not until 1863 that extraction of low-grade porphyry copper ore began. These nineteenth-century mines, though, were relatively small. However, in 1903, Daniel Jackling and Enos Wall organized the Utah Copper Company and began construction of a pilot mill at Copperton, just beyond the mouth of the canyon. Serious mining efforts got underway in 1906. The Kennecott Copper Corporation that operated mines in Kennecott, Alaska, acquired the company in 1936. this mine, which is on the National Register of Historic Sites, is just one of the two man-made objects on earth that can be seen by astronauts from outer space.

[source] Today, the mine is owned by Rio Tinto Group, an international mining and exploration company headquartered in the United Kingdom. The copper operations at Bingham Canyon Mine are managed through Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation (KUCC) which operates the mine, a concentrator plant, a smelter, and a refinery.

How is coal mined? - What is Surface Mining and Underground Mining - Video
 
08:10
How is coal mined? Read Full Story: http://www.spoonfeeding.in/2013/02/how-is-coal-mined-what-is-surface.html Mining is the process of removing coal from the ground. There are two types of mining: underground mining and surface mining. When the coal seam is fewer than 125 feet under the surface, it is mined by surface mining. Coal that is deeper than 125 feet is removed from the ground by underground mining. Underground mining is used when the coal seam lies deep in the earth. In an underground mine only some of the coal is removed. The coal that remains helps support the mine roof. Underground mines look like a system of tunnels. The tunnels are used for traveling throughout the mine, moving coal from place to place and allowing air to circulate in the mine. The coal that is mined is put on conveyor belts. The conveyor belts take the coal to the surface. There are three types of underground mines: slope, drift, and shaft. When the coal seam is close to the surface but too deep to use surface mining, a slope mine can be built. In a slope mine a tunnel slants down from the surface to the coal seam. A drift mine is built when the coal seam lies in the side of a hill or mountain. Drift mines may also be built in a surface mine that has become too deep. There are many drift mines in the eastern United States. The most common type of mine in Illinois is the shaft mine. These mines may be 125 to 1,000 feet deep. A large hole, or shaft, is drilled down into the ground until it reaches the coal seam.

Low Oil Prices Slam Mining Stocks Like BHP Billiton, But Glencore and Anglo-American Are Even Worse
 
04:38
Low oil prices have taken a huge toll on mining companies like BHP Billiton (BHP), but one analyst said the company has fared better than rivals like Glencore (GLCNF) and Anglo American (AAL). ‘Apart from the likes of BHP and Rio Tinto (RIO), we don’t think it’s worth holding onto some of the other companies, such as Glencore and Anglo American because those companies didn’t manage their debts too well,’ said Helal Miah, an investment research analyst at The Share Centre, based in the UK. ‘They were overly indebted, whereas BHP and Rio seem to be better positioned and didn’t take out excessive amounts of debt.’ Miah said he’s relatively comfortable holding onto BHP, though it will take time for the company to recover. Oil prices have lost some 46% over the past 12 months. Shares of BHP fell 53.3% over the past year. The company posted a loss of $5.67 billion for the last half of 2015 and cut its dividend by 75%.

ALCOA ALUMINUM PRODUCTION  EDUCATIONAL FILMS  BAUXITE MINING, REFINING & SMELTING   55284
 
22:44
This series of three films produced by ALCOA to educate the public about the aluminum industry focuses on the production of aluminum. The films discus Bauxite mining, refining, smelting, and delivery. The various aspects of the production of aluminum are shown including Bauxite Refining (:09), Smelting of Aluminum (5:30), and Aluminum Fabricating Process (10:10). The Bayer process shown is the principal industrial means of refining bauxite to produce alumina (aluminium oxide). Bauxite, the most important ore of aluminium, contains only 30–54% aluminium oxide, (alumina), Al2O3, the rest being a mixture of silica, various iron oxides, and titanium dioxide. The aluminium oxide must be purified before it can be refined to aluminium metal. Alcoa Corporation (from Aluminum Company of America) is an American industrial corporation. It is the world's fifth largest producer of aluminum, with corporate headquarters in New York City. From its operational base in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States, Alcoa conducts operations in 10 countries. Alcoa is a major producer of primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum, and alumina combined, through its active and growing participation in all major aspects of the industry: technology, mining, refining, smelting, fabricating, and recycling. On November 1, 2016, Alcoa Inc. split into two new entities: Alcoa Corporation, which is engaged in the mining and manufacture of raw aluminum, and Arconic, which processes aluminum and other metals. In April 2017, Alcoa announced it will move its headquarters back to Pittsburgh effective September 1.

(NYSE: AA) (from Aluminum Company of America) is the world's third largest producer of aluminum, behind Rio Tinto Alcan and Rusal. From its operational headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Alcoa conducts operations in 31 countries. Alcoa is a world leader in the production and management of primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum, and alumina combined, through its active and growing participation in all major aspects of the industry: technology, mining, refining, smelting, fabricating, and recycling. Aluminum and alumina represent more than three-fourths of Alcoa's revenue. Non-aluminum products include precision castings and aerospace and industrial fasteners. Alcoa's products are used worldwide in aircraft, automobiles, commercial transportation, packaging, building and construction, oil and gas, defense, and industrial applications. In May 2007 Alcoa made a $27 billion hostile takeover bid for Alcan, a former subsidiary, aiming to unite the two companies and form the world's largest aluminum producer. The takeover bid was withdrawn after Alcan announced a friendly takeover by Rio Tinto in July 2007... History In 1886, Charles Martin Hall, a graduate of Ohio's Oberlin College, discovered the process of smelting aluminum, almost simultaneously with Paul Héroult in France. He realized that by passing an electrical current through a bath of cryolite and aluminum oxide, the then semi-rare metal aluminum remained as a byproduct. This discovery, now called the Hall-Héroult process, is still the only process used to make aluminum worldwide. Probably fewer than ten sites in the United States and Europe produced any aluminum at the time. In 1887, Hall made an agreement to try his process at the Electric Smelting and Aluminum Company plant in Lockport, New York, but it was not used and Hall left after one year. On Thanksgiving Day 1888, with the help of Alfred E. Hunt, he started the Pittsburgh Reduction Company with an experimental smelting plant on Smallman Street in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In 1891, the company went into production in New Kensington, Pennsylvania. In 1895, a third site opened at Niagara Falls. By about 1903, after a settlement with Hall's former employer, and while its patents were in force, the company was the only legal supplier of aluminum in the US. "The Aluminum Company of America"—became the firm's new name in 1907. The acronym "Alcoa" was coined in 1910, given as a name to two of the locales where major corporate facilities were located (although one of these has since been changed), and in 1999 was adopted as the official corporate name. In 1938, the Justice Department charged Alcoa with illegal monopolization, and demanded that the company be dissolved. The case of United States v. Alcoa was settled six years later. Alcoa established an 8% stake in China's state-run aluminum industry and has formed a strategic alliance with Aluminium Corporation of China (Chalco), China's largest aluminum producer, at its Pingguo facility. Alcoa sold this stake on September 12, 2007. Alcoa has also acquired two facilities in Russia, at Samara and Belaya Kalitva. Alcoa recently launched an offer to purchase the remaining 18% of the Belaya Kalitva plant from minority shareholders, giving it complete ownership in the facility. In 2004, Alcoa's specialty chemicals division was sold to Rhône Group, who then changed the name to Almatis, Inc.. In 2005, Alcoa began construction in Iceland on Alcoa Fjarðaál, a state-of-the-art aluminum smelter and the company's first greenfield smelter in more than 20 years, albeit under heavy criticism by local and international NGOs related to a controversial dam project exclusively dedicated to supplying electricity to this smelter. Also, Alcoa has completed or is undergoing primary aluminum expansion projects in Brazil, Jamaica, and Pinjarra, Western Australia. In 2006, Alcoa relocated its top executives from its headquarters in Pittsburgh to New York City. Although the company's principal office is located in New York City, the company's operational headquarters are still located at its Corporate Center in Pittsburgh... Alcoa was named one of the top three most sustainable corporations in the world at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland...

Resolution Copper Mining Method
 
03:03
Resolution Copper will use the panel caving mining method, a variation of block caving to break up the underground ore. This technique uses gravity primarily to break the rock. Panel caving is more efficient than other underground mining methods for this type of deposit. It will result in lower operating costs and will allow us to mine the most ore while creating the least amount of waste. The technique is also favorable because it is safe, allows a high degree of mechanization, and results in both high production rates and favorable economies of scale. Help us secure Arizona's future.

The mine is owned by Rio Tinto Group, an international mining and exploration company headquartered in the United Kingdom. The copper operations at Bingham Canyon Mine are managed through Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation which operates the mine, a concentrator plant, a smelter, and a refinery. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (0.97 km) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 under the name Bingham Canyon Open Pit Copper Mine. The mine experienced a massive landslide in April of 2013 and a smaller slide in September of 2013... History Minerals, in the form of copper ore, were first discovered in Bingham Canyon in 1848 by two brothers, Sanford and Thomas Bingham, sons of Erastus Bingham, Mormon pioneers of September 1847, who grazed their family's and other's cattle and horses there. They reported their find to their leader, Brigham Young, who advised against pursuing mining operations... In 1850, the Bingham family went to settle what is now Weber County, leaving the canyon still today known by their name. It was not until 1863 that extraction of ore began and the potential of the canyon's mineral resources began to be widely recognized. At first, mining was difficult due to the area's rugged terrain, but a railroad reached the canyon in 1873... it was not until 1898 that plans for very large-scale exploitation of the canyon's ore bodies began to develop. That year, Samuel Newhouse and Thomas Weir formed the Boston Consolidated Mining Company, intending to increase mine development in the canyon. A more significant development took place in 1903, when Daniel C. Jackling and Enos A. Wall organized the Utah Copper Company. Utah Copper immediately began construction of a pilot mill at Copperton, just beyond the mouth of the canyon, and the company actually started mining in 1906. The success of Utah Copper in mining the huge but low-grade porphyry copper type orebody at Bingham Canyon revolutionized the copper industry, and set the pattern for the large open-pit porphyry copper mines that today dominate the copper industry worldwide. Utah Copper and Boston Consolidated merged in 1910. The Kennecott Copper Corporation, established in 1903 to operate mines in Kennecott, Alaska, purchased a financial interest in Utah Copper in 1915 and fully acquired the company in 1936. Bingham's Canyon mine expanded rapidly, and by the 1920s the region was a beehive of activity. Some 15,000 people of widely-varying ethnicity lived in the canyon, in large residential communities constructed on the steep canyon walls. The population declined rapidly as mining techniques improved, however, and several of the mining camps began to be swallowed up by the ever-expanding mine. By 1980, when Lark was dismantled, only Copperton, at the mouth of Bingham Canyon and with a population of 800, remained. For years, the largest open-pit mine in the world, it is still among the world's largest open-pit mines. Work to expand the mine 600 feet (180 m) east began in 2005, continuing to increase its size, growth, and capabilities... The extracted ore is treated at the Kennecott smelter at nearby Magna, Utah... The filtered concentrate slurry is piped 17 miles (27 km) to the smelter... Employing 1,800 employees and hundreds of contractors, 450,000 short tons (400,000 long tons; 410,000 t) of material are removed from the mine daily...

Megastructures Gold Mine | Deepest place on Earth - Extreme Engineering (2018 Documentary)
 
42:29
South Africa's Mponeng Gold Mine is the deepest place on Earth. Mponeng is a gold mine in South Africa's Gauteng province. It extends over 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) below the surface and is considered to be one of the most substantial gold mines in the world. It is also currently the world's deepest mine from ground level. The trip from the surface to the bottom of the mine takes over an hour. Over 5400 metric tonnes of rock are excavated from Mponeng each day. At a price of $19.4 per gram of gold the mine only needs to extract 10 grams of gold per ton excavated to remain profitable. The mine contains at least two gold reefs with the deepest one metre thick. The temperature of the rock reaches 66 °C (151 °F) and the mine pumps slurry ice underground to cool the tunnel air below 30 °C (86 °F). A mixture of concrete water and rock is packed into excavated areas which further acts as an insulator. Tunnel walls are secured by flexible shotcrete reinforced with steel fibers which is further held in place by diamond-mesh netting. The endemic bacterium Desulforudis audaxviator was discovered within groundwater samples. Engineering projects around the globe keep getting bigger and more ambitious. there are structures being designed and built that will dwarf anything that has come before.

https://youtu.be/Oi9iwtjctok The Río Tinto (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈri.o ˈtinto] , red river) is a river in southwestern Spain that rises in the Sierra Morena mountains of Andalusia . It flows generally south-southwest, reaching the Gulf of Cádiz at Huelva. Since ancient times, a site[ which? ] along the river has been mined for copper , silver , gold , and other minerals. [1] In approximately 3000 BC, Iberians and Tartessians began mining the site, followed by the Phoenicians , Greeks, Romans , Visigoths , and Moors. After a period of abandonment, the mines were rediscovered in 1556 and the Spanish government began operating them once again in 1724. [1] As a possible result of the mining, the Río Tinto is notable for being very acidic (pH 2) and its deep reddish hue is due to iron dissolved in the water . Acid mine drainage from the mines leads to severe environmental problems due to the heavy metal concentrations in the river. In 1873, the Rio Tinto Company was formed to operate the mines; by the end of the 20th century it had become one of the world's largest multinational mining companies, although it no longer controls the Río Tinto mines; these are now owned by EMED Mining . History The Rio Tinto in 2006 The ore body was deposited in the Carboniferous (300–350 Ma) by hydrothermal activities on the sea floor. The river area has a history of mining activity since the Tartessans and the Iberians started mining in 3000 BC. The mining continued over the Phoenician era and under the Roman Empire until the second part of the 15th century: primarily for copper but also for iron and manganese . In the nineteenth century the mining operation started on a large scale mining companies from the United Kingdom . After the peak of production in 1930, production declined and ended in 1986 for copper mining and in 1996 for silver and gold mining. [2] The mine closed in 2001. Increased copper prices in the 2010s led to efforts by EMED Mining to reopen the mine, but difficulties in acquiring all property rights necessary, environmental concerns, and obtaining regulatory approval delayed reopening. The mine, which employed as many as 20,000 in the past, would employ 350 people during its startup phase. The firm acquired US$ 250 million in financing for the project. Environmental concerns are centered on disused water reservoirs which might not be able to withstand the stress of renewed waste inputs.

Global Climate Change Policy - Extractive Industry Impacts and Response
 
01:04:03
Jeff Hopkins, Principal Adviser for International Energy and Climate Policy at Rio Tinto, presented on October 29, 2013 as part of the AEDE Applied Economics Seminar Series. His presentation focused on climate change policy as experienced by an international mining company. This seminar was sponsored by Ohio State's Environmental Policy Initiative. Dr. Hopkins leads policy engagement in the U.S. and Canada for Rio Tinto and works with a globally-distributed corporate team as well as external affairs and environmental specialists who work on-site at Rio Tinto mines and businesses. Rio Tinto is the largest diversified mining company in the U.S. and the second-largest mining company in the world, with major operations producing iron ore, copper, aluminum, uranium, thermal and metallurgical coal, gold, and industrial minerals. As part of their mining, refining, and smelting of these metals and minerals, Rio Tinto emits 41 million tons of GHG emissions per year. Over 70 percent of these GHG emissions occur in places where carbon is regulated through a price-based scheme such as cap and trade or a carbon tax. Dr. Hopkins' policy education and advocacy work on behalf of Rio Tinto at the national and regional levels, often in collaboration with the larger business community and environmental NGOs, is based on extensive experience in scheme development and implementation. Prior to working for Rio Tinto, Dr. Hopkins was a policy analyst and chief economist for the United States House of Representatives Committee on the Budget, and before that for USDA's Economic Research Service. Dr. Hopkins received a PhD from AEDE in 1998, and was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala from 1987-1989.

Professor Quentin Grafton - Australia's Mining Productivity at ANU / Harvard Symposium
 
25:47
Professor Quentin Grafton of the Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics gives this talk titled 'Australia's Mining Productivity' at the Creating a Productive Future ANU / Harvard Symposium on 18 March 2013. 'Creating a Productive Future: Social and economic challenges, policy & governance' was a A Trans-Pacific dialogue jointly hosted by Harvard Kennedy School & Crawford School of Public Policy at ANU. Australia faces many social and economic challenges in sustaining long-term productive growth beyond the mineral resources boom. Whilst the context in the United States differs in important ways, similar challenges are faced. Both share concerns around future economic growth, trends in poverty and inequality, productivity and employment levels, alongside a range of other issues that affect well-being. In this two day symposium, leading researchers from Crawford School of Public Policy at The Australian National University, and the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard University and policymakers from the Australian Government come together in a conversation on these issues, and more. Co-Chairs and organisers of this event acknowledge the support provided by the Australian Studies Committee at Harvard University.

KLR-Bingham Canyon Mine Utah
 
09:50
After researching Kennecott's website I learned that the Bingham Canyon Mine is the 2nd largest producer of copper in the United States and provides 1/4 of the country's needs. I thought it was amazing the Bingham Canyon Mine has produced more copper than any other mine, more than 19 tons throughout it's history which began in 1903. According to the website, the mine produces 300,000 tons of copper a year, 500,000 ounces of gold, 4 million ounces of silver, 30 million pounds of molybdenum and 1 million tons of sulfuric acid annually. Holy Mackerel Andy! I also learned the Bingham Canyon Mine is the largest man-made excavation on Earth! It's 2 ¾ miles across at the top and ¾ of a mile deep. The webiste claims you could stacked two Willis Towers (formerly the Sears Tower) on top of each other and they still wouldn't reach the top of the mine. The website also claims you could lay the Real Salt Lake soccer field end-to-end more than 38 times across the top of the Bingham Canyon Mine before it would reach both sides. In other words....it's huge! The funny thing about this mine is I've seen it everyday of my mortal existence and I've never taken a tour or really been up close and personal. So I decided to drive up Butterfield Canyon on my dual-sport and have a look at the mine with a 'birds eye' perspective.....enjoy!

Business Delegates Lambast China's Rare Earth Mineral Restrictions
 
02:18
For more news visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛http://me.lt/9P8MUn Hundreds of business and government delegates from around the world gathered at a rare earth minerals conference in Beijing on Thursday. Some are questioning the Chinese regime's motives in restricting exports of the minerals. They are saying the move is aimed at giving domestic Chinese manufacturers an unfair advantage over those overseas. Foreign governments and businesses are accusing the Chinese regime of monopolizing rare earth minerals. The regime cut exports that would drive up global prices of the minerals, making it harder for manufacturers to operate outside of China. China has about 95 percent of the world's supply of rare earth minerals—a group of about 17 elements used in everything from aerospace components to batteries, hybrid cars, wind turbines and smart phones. Export quotas have fallen 40 percent in two years, with the regime naming resource depletion and environmental degradation for the decision. It has left rare earth consumers, particularly Japan, scrambling for other supply sources. Business and government delegates from more than a dozen countries attended a rare earth minerals conference in Beijing on Thursday where an executive commented on what he believes are the Chinese regime's motives. [Michael Silver, Chief Executive Officer of American Elements]: "What they are doing is requesting the people literally make their end-use products in China and they are requesting companies that want to come to China to actually transfer valuable technologies to other Chinese companies so the other Chinese producers can benefit from that knowledge, particularly in selected industries such as the green technology industries, solar energy and the auto industry." European Union officials have accused the Chinese regime of double standards for complaining about the stronghold that major iron ore suppliers—Rio Tinto, BHP and Vale—have over the sector. The European Union, United States and Japan are joining forces to find other sources of the rare earth minerals, as well as substitutes. In July, the World Trade Organization dismissed the Chinese regime's claim that export duties and quotas on raw minerals had the effect of protecting its scarce resources and environment. Ben Yang

2013, James D. Toole, Inductee, American Mining Hall of Fame
 
05:35
The Mining Foundation of the Southwest is pleased to announce that James D. Toole is the 2013 Inductee into the American Mining Hall of Fame . James D. Toole, past President and CEO of Southwest Energy, LLC, was born into a coal mining family in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania. He began his mining career working in open cut strip mines. After graduating from King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and completing service in the U.S. Marine Corps, Toole was hired by the explosives division of Hercules Inc. in 1965. His first assignment was in the Minnesota Iron Range where he lived with his wife Molly. Three years later, Toole and his family were transferred to the Panama Canal Zone where he worked on the canal widening project. After his work in Panama, a third transfer found Toole, Molly, and their three children in Tucson where copper mining was expanding. Also expanding was the Toole family with the addition of three more children in the following years. In May 1973, Toole took an innovative approach to the application of bulk blasting agents; he left Hercules and founded Southwest Energy. Four months later, Southwest Energy purchased Hercules' Arizona operations. Soon Southwest began to broaden its business affiliations beyond Arizona. In early 1980 Southwest Energy took an equity position in Apache Powder Company, now known as Apache Nitrogen Products Inc. in Benson, Arizona. After adding additional bulk loading capacity and blast hole drilling throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Southwest Energy formed a joint venture in 2000 with SASOL, a South African chemical and energy company. As a result of this joint venture, Southwest Energy gained access to explosive technologies, electronic detonators, and a unique form of ammonium nitrate prill called EXPAN. After three years, the joint venture dissolved when SASOL exited the global explosives market, leaving Southwest Energy in a stronger market position with expanded product capabilities. In 2008 Southwest Energy created a new joint venture with Orica, the largest explosives company in the world based in Melbourne, Australia. With the innovative explosives technologies and strong manufacturing base of Orica, Southwest Energy continues to provide even greater value to its mining customers. Today, Southwest Energy has multiple facilities, distribution sites, and blasting operations across the western United States. During the company's 40-year history, Toole believes that the greatest assets of Southwest Energy are the exceptional employees and the willingness of the company to share its profitability with all of its people and the communities where they live and work. Southwest Energy's mission has always been and continues to be the creation of opportunity for its employees by bringing ever increasing value to its customers.
