Modern Mining - How Eagle Mine produces nickel and copper
 
05:44
This video will take you step-by-step through Eagle's mining process. In addition, the video explains the techniques we use to find nickel and copper. About us: Eagle Mine is a nickel-copper mine located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The underground mine is expected to produce 360 million pounds of nickel, 295 million pounds of copper and small amounts of other metals over its estimated eight year mine life. Eagle Mine is owned and operated by Lundin Mining Corporation.

Activist Lois Gibbs: RioTinto, Kennecott Sulfide Mine in northern Michigan like Infamous Love Canal
 
05:11
"Mother of the Superfund" Lois Gibbs compared the Upper Peninsula future to infamous Love Canal disaster, during an Oct. 15, 2010 talk at Northern Michigan University (NMU). It appears officials involved in higher education in Marquette, MI were not thrilled by Gibbs talks that opposed the Kennecott Eagle Minerals nickel and copper mines planned for the Yellow Dog Plains near Lake Superior Gibbs talk at NMU almost did not happen because NMU Public Safety officials refused to unlock Jamrich Hall, according to a university employee who propped doors open with a chair and a garbage can. Meanwhile, Gibbs talk to Marquette high school students was canceled when she refused to promise that the sulfide mine would not cross her lips. Gibbs NMU presentation was titled "From the Love Canal to Michigan." Sponsors of Gibbs visit to Marquette include Students for Sustainable Living, Cedar Tree Institute, Save the Wild U.P., Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve. Gibbs said bad decisions made by political and business leaders in Niagara Falls resulted in birth defects, cancer, the uprooting of families and heartache on many levels. "You have a beautiful environment here," said Gibbs, a Nobel Peace Prize Nominee. "You have a place that is worth saving." "You have a place that has huge potential for green development," said Gibbs, executive director of the nonprofit Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ) in Falls Church, VA. "You have the opportunity here to think about what is the economic growth and development that you want in the U.P." Gibbs led a march from Eagle Rock to the mine front gates (Kennecott Eagle Minerals) where a security guard warned protestors they were too close to the site. Moments before Gibbs arrived with 25 protestors, company officials sent all employees home. For centuries sacred Eagle Rock was the site of Ojibwa religious observances. But Kennecott Minerals and its London-based parent company Rio Tinto plan to blast thru it to make an entrance to their underground mine -- the largest site of nickel and copper ever uncovered. "You (can) stop the economic growth that is not going to benefit the environment," said Gibbs. "This is not the mine that (your) mama and dad use to work - and grand-pappy used to work at -- this is a much more dangerous mine." said Gibbs, noting that the U.P.'s rich history of above ground iron ore (pit) mining is not as dangerous as underground sulfide mining including the sulfuric acid byproduct. "This is a much more dangerous mine and this is a mine that could seriously hurt the water supply, contaminate the lake and become a moonscape," she said. Niagara Falls, NY city fathers "tried to build the economy on a parallel path" and "I see that here," she said. "One was attracting tourists to the area," said Gibbs. Niagara Falls is "one of the seven wonders of the world -- it's absolutely breathtaking." "The second path they were running was an industrial - chemical industry," Gibbs said. "They thought they could run both" but "these are two incompatible paths." "Because when tourists are standing by a river (and) the fish are floating on top of the Niagara River it doesn't make for good tourism," Gibbs said. "When you are standing there smelling chemicals from the chemical plant it does not make good tourism." "On the American side (of Niagara Falls) there is nobody there," she said "If you go to the Canadian side it's bustling ." "Now downtown Niagara Falls is this huge casino where everyone gambles" but "nobody stays." "A mistake was made in Niagara Falls," Cleveland, Detroit and "a number of cities," said Gibbs. Those are "non-sustainable industrial cities." "They are now poverty cities" with "drugs, crime (and) destruction -- It's not what you want to do here (in U.P.)," she said. In 1978, Gibbs found her seven-year-old son's elementary school and neighborhood was built on a 20,000 ton toxic waste dump -- infamous "Love Canal." The government eventually evacuated 833 families - some victims of unusually high rates of cancer and birth defects. During her NMU talk, Gibbs offered support to groups battling sulfide mining from her nonprofit Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ). "CHEJ would be happy to come out and help you," said Gibbs who is continuing her three-decade battle against evil corporations and governments.

WAVE Players Lampoon Corrupt Michigan Officials, Politicians, Crooked Sulfide Mining Company
 
10:56
(Marquette, MI) - A new environmental group, WAVE (Wave Action Vital Earth) is the action arm of Save The Wild U.P. The battle continues in 2011 to stop the Rio Tinto/Kennecott Minerals Sulfide "Acid" Mine on the Yellow Dog Plains in a remote area in north Marquette County near Lake Superior and the tiny hamlet of Big Bay, MI. The WAVE Players have decided to use humor -- because the real facts (keep reading) are enough to make honest people cry. Documents have revealed a possible criminal conspiracy between the state of Michigan, Kennecott Minerals and Rio Tinto. Not something unusual for the international mining giant Rio Tinto, whose minions are charged with a wide range of crimes across the globe including bribery, violating environment laws and human rights violations. "Rio Tinto was complicit in war crimes and crimes against humanity," stated the residents of the island of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea in a lawsuit filed against Rio Tinto. In China, Rio Tinto bosses were arrested for bribery -- a practice the company has used in many projects in order to get politicians, police, prosecutors and judges on their side. So why then -- did the state of Michigan decide to get into a toxic bed of sulfuric acid with Rio Tinto - including blatantly violating treaties with the Ojibwa/Anishinaabe -- with plans to destroy sacred Eagle Rock (an ions old Native American outdoor church). In addition to crimes, all mines opened by Kennecott Minerals have serious environmental problems. MI Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm (Dem.) and Attorney General Mike Cox (State's top cop) refused to answer questions about a financial connection with the mine owners. WAVE and other U.P. residents have asked the MI Attorney General Bill Schuette (Republican) to investigate a series of suspicious actions involving Rio Tinto and state officials. Those suspected of wrongdoing included employees of the MI Dept. of Environmental Quality, Gov. Granholm and her staff. Previous Attorney General Mike Cox (Republican) -- refused to investigate the allegations and refused to answer questions about his (or family) financial connections with the mining company. Will MI Attorney General Bill Schuette open a probe? Is it strange that MI Governor Granholm and the 7 candidates for her job (included Mike Cox, future Gov. Rick Snyder) all refused to reveal any financial connections of any kind with Rio Tinto, Kennecott Minerals and its subsidiaries, agents, lobbyists etc. All eight could have stated they have no financial connections - instead they refused comment.

OPEN PIT MINING OF COPPER IN THE AMERICAN SOUTHWEST 1960s MOVIE  57284
 
37:52
Produced by the Marion Power Shovel Company, this fascinating movie looks at copper and copper mining in the 1960s, when the American mines were at peak production and financial troubles loomed. The film looks at the future of mining, including the development of efficiencies to keep mines in business. Open pit mining techniques are shown, with a focus on the Southwest. At 2:00, Bingham Canyon and the Utah Mining Company pit (also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine) is seen. At 2:40, various open pit mines are seen which use either trucks or trains to remove ore. Although they are not named, it's likely that one of them is the Phelps-Dodge mine at Bisbee, Arizona. At 5:40, exploratory core drilling is shown. At 6:30, exploration programs are shown including at 6:43, an engineering team that maps mine development. Various drill systems are seen at 9:00, including the rotary drill. At 10:30, preparations are seen towards using explosives with the burying of dynamite and detonators for excavation. At 12:12, loading of explosives is seen with an emphasis on safe handling. At 14:51, a cage drill is shown in use allowing rocks to be drilled in the field (without being moved by shovels) for explosive removal. At 16:00, a small 4.5 yard bucket shovel is shown being used to move blast debris. At 16:00, a 6-yard loading shovel is seen. At 17:49, overburden waste from the pit is loaded on a train so that it can be moved and dumped at a remote area. At 18:50, a 13-yard shovel is seen in use with a large truck also in use. As the narrator explains, these large size equipment is needed to lower unit costs of copper, and are an economic necessity given the modern financial conditions. At 19:52, the motorized wheel principle of new types of mining trucks is seen, and the narrator comments that next generation trucks will carry over 100 tons of ore. At 22:55, a grader is seen working the mine roads, and the narrator comments about how tires wear out so quickly on the job that they account for up to 1% of mining costs. At 24:30, railroad trains are shown on the move at a mine, moving 60-125 ton per car loads. The narrator comments further on the use of railroads in pit mining. At 26:30, a large shovel is seen loading a train, sprinkling the loads with water to hold down dust. The large boulders in the loads make this type of work dangerous. At 27:16, ore loads are dumped into a crusher at a mill site. At 27:40, a rail waste dump into a slag pile is seen. At 28:00, a train-based grader is used to clear tracks of debris. The narrator notes that the mining railroads are some of the busiest in the USA and the world. At 28:44, new tracks are installed due to various demands, and mechanized railroad ballast systems are used for fast track installation. At 31:20, a skip hoist is seen being used to take ore from a deep, small pit to the surface. At 32:50, a series of leeching ponds is seen, with water percolated through the ponds to precipitate copper. At 34:00, a machine shop is seen at the mine, providing repair and maintenance services at the mine. At 35:40, a heavy repair part is unloaded at the mine using a power shovel. At 36:00, a research laboratory is seen at work, developing new uses of copper in the atomic and other industries. At 36:40, the IBM Ramac computer is seen. The IBM 305 RAMAC was the first commercial computer that used a moving-head hard disk drive (magnetic disk storage) for secondary storage. The film ends with a shot of a heap of pennies, with the narrator noting that the industry is working hard to expand production to fulfill future needs. The Bingham Canyon Mine, more commonly known as Kennecott Copper Mine, is extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mine is the largest man-made excavation in the world and produced more copper than any other mine in history – more than 19 million tons. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (970 m) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). Marion Power Shovel Company was an American firm that designed, manufactured and sold steam shovels, power shovels, blast hole drills, excavators, and dragline excavators. The company was a major supplier of shovels for the construction of the Panama Canal. Founded in Marion, Ohio in August, 1884 as the Marion Steam Shovel Company, the company grew through sales and acquisitions throughout the 20th century. The company changed its name to Marion Power Shovel Company in 1946 to reflect the industry's change from steam power to diesel power.

World's largest native copper
 
01:08
Weighing 25,590 kilogram, the world's largest native copper nugget is believed to form some 1 billion years ago. The copper was first excavated in the U.S. state of Michigan in 1997. It traveled more than 12,000 km in three months from Michigan to China for a display on an expo. SOUNDBITE(ENGLISH)GRAHAM SUTTON, Manager of Chinese office of Collector's Edge "The native copper from this part of Michigan is very famous. No place in the world has bigger piece of copper, and over 100 years of mining, they never found one of this big. The next biggest copper is only 10 tons, so it's more than two times bigger than any other found in more than 100 years. The precious item was collected by the US-based Collector's Edge, the world's premier source for exquisite and collector-quality mineral specimens, in early 2016. Starting from Thursday, the five-day event has attracted hundreds of dealers from both home and abroad to bring treasures of world class. The annual show is the largest platform for mineral and gemstone trading in Asia.

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.

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...
