Five Mile Pass Mine Shaft Closure Project
Utah has a rich mining history and provides nearly every mineral needed by our modern society, including copper, silver, and uranium. Park City, Eureka, and Moab were established by miners. When the mines no longer produced, they were often simply abandoned leaving hazardous equipment, open shafts, tunnels, and piles of waste rock. The Utah Mined Land Reclamation Act was passed in 1975, making it illegal for mines to be abandoned. In 1977, the federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) was created to fund state regulatory and reclamation efforts. SMCRA created the Abandoned Mine Land (AML) fund to pay for the cleanup of mine lands abandoned before 1977. The fund is financed by a tax on coal mining operations. The Abandoned Mine Reclamation Program (AMRP) works to protect the public from dangers of old mines by sealing off access to openings and cleaning up waste. Old mining sites can be intriguing to unsuspecting explorers but can contain dangerous gases, unstable structures and explosives. Stay out and Stay Alive! Many abandoned mines are also links to Utah's history. We strive to strike a balance between public safety and preserving historic and archaeological resources. We do careful historic research and archaeological work, and we consult with landowners, federal agencies, and the State Historic Preservation Office. The Camp Floyd mining district was organized in 1870 by soldiers who prospected for gold and silver in their spare time. The mines here aren’t as well known as the ones in Mercur, about five miles north, but there was initially a lot of enthusiasm about the deposits. Mining on a large scale started in the mid-1890s. Through accounts in old newspapers we can track enthusiasm and optimism giving way to disappointment and decline. The district was active from about 1895 to 1920. The mines and mills supported a town of a few hundred people; but they were closed down and the town basically abandoned by 1930. None of the mine or town buildings survive. This specific mine claim was known as the Old Fred. We know that by 1899, it was about 240 feet deep, being worked with a horse whim. Despite all the work that went into it, this shaft wasn’t productive or profitable, and it wasn’t a major contributor to the success of the district.

Earth Embassy 2014
World Environment Day Earth Embassy Action Grass Hut outside Parliament This World Environment Day, June the 5th 2014 an Earth Embassy will be established at the Victorian Parliament House precinct. The Embassy is a reclamation of the sovereign indigenous land and will represent a united front of world indigenous movements against the destruction of the earth and its peoples. The autonomous space will be a hub for all earth defenders to establish a presence on Aboriginal land and bring their issues to the city streets. The protest features the First-nations Liberation Movement (FnL). They will bring Black issues to the conversation on World Environment Day, creating a space for indigenous people to join forces in solidarity with others responding to the ecological emergency facing our planet. West Papuan indigenous activists will construct a traditional hut to bring their demands for environmental justice and human rights in their homeland to Melbourne. West Papuan Ronny Kareni explained his people's position. "Imagine a foreign corporation arrived one day with your national government's blessing and seized your home; destroyed your grocery store, local farms and gardens, your church, your favorite park; polluted your drinking water." "West Papuan indigenous people have no recourse to the law to defend their lands from multinational companies. As a collective voice and as defenders of the Earth and indigenous custodians of our land, we demand foreign corporations with their national government to STOP plundering the mother earth.'' Earth Embassy organiser Izzy Brown explained. "In Australia indigenous people are being double dispossessed, first their land has been stolen, and now its being destroyed. But as the original custodians of the land they continue to be at the forefront of the struggle to defend the planet." Robie Thorpe (FnL) ''This country is based on premeditated acts of genocide on aboriginal people and our land.'' "The Earth Embassy moves in solidarity with the recently established Redfern Tent Embassy and the Muckaty traditional owners who are currently in the Federal Court of Australia contesting the Government's proposed national nuclear waste dump being placed on their land without their consent. From toll ways to fracking, from old growth forest logging to coal mining, from dredging to drilling, the environment is under attack, and the climate is on the brink of cataclysmic change. There is now more need than ever to establish a space to challenge state and federal governments committed to funding environmental destruction through subsidies to mulitinational mining companies, the coal and old growth logging industries. If they attempt to silence us through the recently implemented Summary Offences act that grants the police more move on powers, the Earth Embassy is prepared to challenge their jurisdiction to enact these laws against a sovereign indigenous protest." "The Earth Embassy will bring the reality of the environment emergency to the parliament and big business district of Melbourne through traditional, beautiful radical and necessary acts of creative resistance."

World News - Coal mining deaths surge in 2017 after hitting record low
World News - Coal mining deaths surge in 2017 after hitting record low Coal mining deaths surged in the US in 2017, one year after they hit a record low.The nation's coal mines recorded 15 deaths last year, including eight in West Virginia. That is nearly double the death toll in 2016, when eight people died in coal mining incidents.West Virginia has led the nation in coal mining deaths in six of the past eight years.Although Wyoming produces the most coal of any state, there was only one death there last year, as less dangerous surface mining is more common in the state.Kentucky had two deaths, and there were one each in Alabama, Colorado, Montana, Pennsylvania.Last year's fatalities represented the highest death toll since 2014, when 16 miners died.That includes 2010, when 29 miners were killed in an explosion at the Upper Big Branch mine in southern West Virginia.In September, retired coal company executive David Zatezalo of Wheeling, West Virginia was appointed by President Donald Trump as the new chief of the Mine Safety and Health Administration.Trump made promises to revive Appalachia's flagging coal mining industry one of the hallmarks of his presidential campaign.Employment in the coal mining industry has rebounded somewhat since his election.In November, there were 51,200 people employed in the US coal mining industry, up from 49,700 a year prior, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.In the mid 1980s, employment in the industry topped 178,000, but has been in a state of steady decline ever since, due in part to advances in technology.More recently, competition from natural gas - which has dropped in price due to the fracking boom - has put pressure on the US coal industry.Republicans have also blamed environment regulations, and Trump has made some moves to roll back Obama-era regulations such as the Stream Protection Rule.

Steven Tannas, Jennifer Barker: Elements of Success, Adaptive Approach to Reclamation Excellence
Dr. Steven Tannas, President of Tannas Conservation Services, and Jennifer Barker, O2 Planning + Design Inc., discuss ways to achieve success in the reclamation process. The information in this presentation is based on the extensive knowledge gained by doing reclamation work in the Calgary area, which involves the stabilization, contouring, maintenance, conditioning, reconstruction and re-vegetation of the land surface. Some general questions that must be asked during the beginning stage of reclamation include: do the plant systems reintroduced to the environment act as an ecosystem? And is there enough plant diversity and healthy soil? Comprehensive aspects of reclamation include five components: a multidisciplinary team of professionals, pre-planning and site evaluation, scientific approach based design, overviewed by qualified environmental inspections, and a site specific monitoring program. The speakers address each of these components and use an example of a reclamation site which they both personally worked on. Issues raised in the past by stakeholders include the fear that it is too costly, risky, hard and unnecessary. These concerns were addressed in the presentation. They explained that while the upfront costs were considerable, they were much less expensive than having a reclaimed site fail and needing to do it over again. The risk of site failure is strongly mitigated if the project is properly researched and the correct professionals are hired on from the beginning. They explain that while natural recovery is possible in specific instances with small land areas and minimal soil disturbance, the majority of reclamation needs to be done by professionals in order to recreate a viable ecosystem. This presentation has been a part of the Canadian Land Reclamation Association Alberta Chapter AGM and Conference, from February 2014.

Environmentally Sound Practices in the Aggregates Industry: Chapter 02
This is clip 2 of 7 for this video. Air and noise pollution are two major concerns that communities have about neighboring mining operations. Governmental regulations are in place to limit the amount of air emissions allowed in the mining industry. Two types of air emissions must be controlled, point-source and fugitive emissions. Wet-suppression, Bag-house filtration, or enclosures can reduce point-source dust emissions. Wetting aggregate pile during loading, wetting roadways and controlling the speed limit of vehicles will reduce fugitive emissions. Blasting creates short term dust emissions and ground vibrations. Acceptable blasting times and vibration limits must be adhered to in order to minimize community complains. Enclosures will also reduce the amount of noise pollution emitting from the plant. Shrubs and trees will act as a buffer zone between operational noise and the community.

Critical Minute - Mining for a Public Relations Strategy
The goal of public relations professionals in most mining operations is to manage public, environmental and governmental affairs. PR professionals in this space need extensive knowledge in media and community relations, environmental planning and government relations. In many cases, the public relations office in a mining operation complements and strengthens a robust environmental permitting team. The mining industry's political and national advocacy is managed by the National Mining Association, which currently organizes the Advocacy Campaign Team (ACT) for mining. This is an online national network of more than 350,000 supporters promoting domestic mining. The mining industry doesn't operate without protest. Both national and global mining accidents, which claim the lives of thousands of miners worldwide each year, drive increased safety measures. Environmental groups, battling against the depletion and spoiling of natural resources, also pose a threat to domestic operations. It's one of the toughest public relations jobs, and professionals in this space constantly dig in to local, national and international TV & Radio coverage on related mining issues to safeguard their operations and shore up local opinion.

Killing Carbon Jobs: Environmentalists blamed for 500 Workers Fired in West Virginia
Please watch video through completely - A Pittsburgh-based coal company, CONSOL Energy, will lay off nearly 500 of its West Virginia workers next year and its CEO blames environmentalists dead-set against mountaintop mining who have waged nuisance lawsuits for the job loss. But CONSOL Energys political problems are not unique to the mining industry, which has suffered under the Obama Administration. The Environmental Protection Agency is already holding 79 surface mining permits in West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee. The EPA says these permits could violate the Clean Water Act and warrant enhanced review. And, agency went even further in October, announcing plans to revoke a permit for the Spruce No. 1 Mine in West Virginia. The latest setback for the coal industry was announced on Tuesday when CONSOL Energy said close to 500 workers would lose jobs at their Fola Operations location near Bickmore, West Virginia in February 2010. CEO Nicholas J. DeIuliis said the poor economy compounded by legal challenges by environmental activists forced CONSOL to slash jobs.

These are concept and legal definitions that guide public lands policy and underlie planning, stewardship and administration decisions. These concepts and rules impact lands we all own together. There are about 400 million acres of land in public trust in the US. Decisions about the management of this land are meaningful to the nation and well as for the planet. Come learn from Nature’s Trust author and prominent environmental law professor Mary Wood about her groundbreaking research and work to enable citizens to hold the US Government accountable to reduce Carbon emissions. From Allyson Siwik learn about the long water-moving legacies of the Bureau of Reclamation, the gains and the losses, and the fight to protect wild rivers. From Ruth Breech learn about the new Rainforest Action Network’s campaign to stop mining permits on public lands, in the name of public health and mitigating catastrophic climate change. Each in their own way invokes the public trust, and the sacred right to protect the commons we all share, for the next generation. Public Trust law– a commonwealth legal framework that protects our ecological life-systems with roots in Ancient Roman Law . Mary Wood’s “Nature’s Trust” builds on this framework, and lays out the existing jurisprudence that can be employed to protect our commons, a marked contrast from the “ legalized damage” we currently practice . We will learn about valiant efforts and growing momentum to preserve the wild and scenic Gila River, one of the last free running rivers in the southwest. If you recall the “ OUR LAND: DRY LAND film we produced about the Arizona CAP Canal– you will understand why yet more large-scale reclamation projects are unacceptable. And a powerful campaign by the Rainforest Action Network to shift practices and stewardship on public lands, stopping the bargain leases for oil and gas on our national commons on the 400 Million acres of Federal lands.

December 27, 2013 Navajo Nation Tribal Council Speciall Session. Legislation 0367-13: In order for Navajo Nation to obtain performance and reclamation bonds for the BHP Navajo Mine, two insurance companies (Arch Insurance and Zurich American Insurance) are requiring the Nation to waive sovereign immunity and to subject themselves to State Court. ● Why? These insurance companies see the Navajo Mine clean-up as a risk & liability ● Arch and Zurich companies asking Navajo to waive their sovereign immunity rights in a State Court so that Navajo can obtain bonds to complete Navajo Mine transaction ● Basically, this legislation is asking Navajo Nation to waive their sovereignty rights because Arch and Zurich insurance companies may see the Navajo courts as more likely to force them to pay if Navajo Nation does not meet Federal standards for reclamation and clean-up of Navajo MineNavajo Nation Consultants on purchasing the BHP Navajo mine.

6. Marine Food-Chains: Mercury
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The military's use of the Puerto Rican island of Vieques as a training site is discussed to highlight the challenges involved in identifying and restoring hazardous sites. Political opposition is faced while attempting to get a site recognized as hazardous, deciding how to compensate those affected, and determining an appropriate level of environmental restoration. The recurring theme of government secrecy and its effect on efforts to protect the environment is also covered during this lecture, as the US military is reluctant to allow researchers to examine testing grounds. The reclamation of these sites involves many environmental statutes, including the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Vulcan 25 TPH Gypsum Dryer System
For more information, visit: https://www.vulcansystems.com. Vulcan 25 ton per hour Gypsum Dryer dries mined gypsum, pelletized gypsum or gypsum for use in wallboard. This equipment has been designed to reduce the moisture content in gypsum through a direct fired rotary dryer. Particulate matter emissions (dust) are controlled using a high-efficiency cyclone and pulse jet baghouse. The system includes the following componentry: Material Feed System: Specially lined feed hopper, an optional classifier and Tuffman® transfer conveyor(s) Rotary Dryer: Direct fired rotary dryer with drive, seals and industrial burner Dry Material Discharge: Flap-gate drum discharge and Tuffman® conveyor Air Pollution Control Devices: High-efficiency cyclone, baghouse and induced draft fan Controls: Push button control panels or programmable logic controllers, PLC, options available PROCESS DESCRIPTION The Vulcan® 25 TPH Gypsum Dryer is fed wet gypsum to a high slip lined hopper, which feeds a material classifier. This unit acts as a pre-conditioner to increase the effectiveness of the drying step. Once prepped, material is gravity fed to a Tuffman® belt conveyor and then a final conveyor which transports the material into the drum. The Vulcan® direct fired rotary dryer is the workhorse of the drying industry. A simple unit, the inclined rotating cylinder, is fitted with an industrial burner radiating heat down the center of the drum. Lifting flights pick up the material and then cascade it into the hot combustion gases. This intimate mixing provides the heat required for the phase transformation of liquid water into steam. As material progresses through the drum, more and more water is vaporized until the dried gypsum drops out of the gravity discharge and onto a Tuffman® conveyor. Vapors, combustion gases, steam and tramp air entrain dust particles known as particulate matter, which must be controlled. The first step in controlling particulate matter is our custom-built Vulcan® cyclone dust collector. Our cyclones utilize centrifugal force to separate the heavier solid particles from the vapor stream. This acts as a pre-conditioner to the baghouse for overall reduced particulate matter emissions. Remaining entrained dust is routed to a pulse jet baghouse. A pulse jet baghouse or fabric filter dust collector operates similarly to an air filter on an engine. Air is pulled through a filter-media, which collects dust while the gases pass through. Baghouses have the ability to remove particulate matter greater than 1 micron with more than 99.99% efficiency, which will help to meet any environmental regulations on air pollution. The cleaned dust is then pushed out the stack of the system through an induced draft fan. Options New or used Vulcan® Vapor Heater Feed classifier Customizable to meet your specific process needs, including: Adding knockers to prevent internal buildup Pollutant limiting burners for reducing NOx and/or CO emissions Abrasion resistant linings Abrasion resistant flighting Insultation to increase thermal efficiency Vortex breaker on cyclone to decrease re-entrainment Applications Drying mined or quarried gypsum to meet specified moisture levels Drying pelletized gypsum (part of the pelletizing process) Drying gypsum for use in wallboard
1984 By George Orwell (2/3) Audiobook
Part1- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMzBE... Part3- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVoDX... Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while the year 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions. A legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time *******Part II******* Chap 1: Pg # 285, Chap 2: Pg # 319, Chap 3: Pg # 347, Chap 4: Pg # 376, Chap 5: Pg # 402, Chap 6: Pg # 433, Chap 7: Pg # 442, Chap 8: Pg # 463, Chap 9: Pg # 496, Chap 10: Pg # 614, Bookmarks: (Courtesy of +EyeOfTheRick) Chapter 1 - 0:05 Chapter 2 - 21:27 Chapter 3 - 39:31 Chapter 4 - 56:46 Chapter 5 - 1:15:25 Chapter 6 - 1:32:55 Chapter 7- 1:38:17 Chapter 8 - 1:52:09 Chapter 9 - 2:12:48 Chapter 10 - 3:29:00 Visit our Website to see a collection http://www.mysticbooks.org Like us on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/MysticBooks.org
