Cleaning up mine water pollution - Newcastle University
International Research Impact: http://bit.ly/impact-yt A team of civil engineering experts at Newcastle University is helping to tackle the global problem of water pollution caused by mining. Dr Adam Jarvis, Reader in Environmental Engineering, explains the impact of the work and describes a system that is being trialled to remove metal from water without the need for energy or chemicals. The 'vertical flow pond' in the Lake District National Park has been designed in collaboration with the Coal Authority, National Trust and Environment Agency, and funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The method could pave the way for cleaning up hundreds of abandoned metal mines across England and potentially the world.

What Coal Mining Hydrogeology tells us about the Real Risks of Fracking_London Lecture_May 2016
Development of shale gas by hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is opposed by campaigners who hypothesise (amongst other things) that potable ground water supplies could be polluted by upward migration of fractures and any fluids they contain. There are very strong reasons for doubting this hypothesis, not least because migration of fractures to prolific aquifers would be highly unlikely to lead to pollution, but almost certain to result in drowning of the shale gas wells, rendering them unusable. Hence, despite having contrasting motivations, shale gas developers and environmental guardians turn out to have a strong common interest in avoiding inter-connection to aquifers. There is in fact a century-long analogue for such a ‘confluence’ of interests, provided by the history of longwall coal mining beneath the sea and major aquifers. Where large-scale mining proceeded from the surface downwards, major hydraulic inter-connection of shallow and deep zones did indeed result in widespread water pollution. However, where new mines were developed at depth without any connections to shallow old workings), complete hydraulic isolation from the near-surface hydrogeological environment was successfully maintained. This was despite the fact that longwall mining produced far greater stratal disruption than shale gas fracking ever could. A detailed example is presented from the successful operation of the Selby Coalfield beneath one of the UK’s main aquifers. This profound and sustained historical analogue provides a very clear lesson: given the lack of hydrogeological connectivity to shallow aquifers, shale gas fracking per se cannot contaminate shallow ground water. Provided operators observe long-established laws governing hydrocarbon wells and associated surface operations, other hydrogeological risks will also be minimal. Opponents of shale gas developments should therefore focus attention on more realistic potential impacts, most of which are familiar from almost any planning application, such as increased truck traffic on minor roads. Speaker Biography Paul Younger (University of Glasgow) Paul L Younger FREng holds the Rankine Chair of Engineering and is Professor of Energy Engineering at the University of Glasgow. He was formerly Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Engagement at Newcastle University, where he also established and led the Sir Joseph Swan Institute for Energy Research and, subsequently, the Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability. A geologist by first degree, Paul trained in hydrogeology in the USA as a Harkness Fellow in the mid-1980s, subsequently developing a career in environmental engineering. He is perhaps best known for his research and outreach on the environmental management of water in active and abandoned mines worldwide, which won the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher Education for Newcastle University in 2005. He is a Fellow of the Geological Society and a Chartered Geologist, as well as a Chartered Engineer. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2007 and has received honorary doctorates for his mine water pollution work from leading universities in Spain and South America. His current research focuses on deep geothermal. In parallel with his mainstream academic work, Paul has founded and directed four companies in the water and energy sectors and has authored more than 400 items in the international literature, including the well-received books “Mine Water: Hydrology, pollution, remediation” (Kluwer, 2002), “Groundwater in the Environment: An Introduction” (Blackwell, 2007), “Water: all that matters” (Hodder, 2012) and “Energy: all that matters” (Hodder, 2014). His knowledge of shale gas was gained through serving on the Joint Royal Academies’ Expert Panel, which reported to the UK government in 2012, and on the Independent Expert Panel on Unconventional Gas, which reported to the Scottish Government in June 2014. When not otherwise engaged, Paul’s preferred activities include exploring the Scottish Highlands and Islands, singing and playing traditional music, and indulging his love of the Spanish and Gaelic languages and cultures.

Prior to joining CONSOL, Harvey was president and chief executive officer of PacificCorp Energy Inc., a subsidiary of PacifiCorp, one of the nation's largest electric utility companies. A fourth-generation coal miner, Harvey began his career in 1979 with Kaiser Steel Company as a longwall supervisor at the company's Sunnyside Mine in Utah. He advanced to mining superintendent in 1980 and became the mine's general manager in 1982. Two years later, he was elected vice president and general manager of Kaiser Coal of New Mexico. He is now chairman of CONSOL Energy's Board of Directors. In 2003, Harvey received the prestigious Percy Nicholls Award jointly conferred by the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration Inc. and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He holds a bachelor's degree in mining engineering from the University of Utah and in 2000 was the recipient of the John E. Willson Distinguished Alumnus Award. Following Harvey's keynote speech, an expert energy panel discussed critical energy issues. Pradeep K. Khosla, the Dowd University Professor and dean of CMU's College of Engineering, moderated the panel which included: Scott Klara, deputy director of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL); CMU's Kelvin Gregory, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering; and CMU's Edward S.

Mining & the Environment: Sustainable or Responsible? by Dr. Gavin Mudd
You can access Dr. Mudd's Power Point presentation here--http://ace.aua.am/files/2016/08/AUA-Mining-v-Environment-v-Susty-or-Resp.pdf About the Talk: Modern mining is a truly global industry, supplying ever more minerals and metals to meet growing global demand - but at what environmental and social costs? This presentation will cover the main issues facing modern mining - declining ore grades, bigger mines, giant open cut and underground mines, more tailings and waste rock, more energy-water-pollution issues, greater regulatory, corporate and financial scrutiny, and all the same time as communities are more aware of mining issues. Showing unique data sets and case studies, this talk will demonstrate that modern mining is far from running out of mineral resources but is clearly facing greater environmental risks. Solutions include better regulation, corporate reporting and accountability, as well as informed communities - thereby ensuring a responsible mining sector is contributing to sustainable development. About the Speaker: Dr. Gavin Mudd is a renowned global expert on the environmental sustainability of modern mining, and brings together a unique set of multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge to explore the challenges that the modern mining industry, governments and communities are collectively facing. His 20 years of research work have examined the environmental impacts to surface water and groundwater, waste rock and tailings management, acid mine drainage, rehabilitation, mineral resources, and the sustainability metrics of mining - and this has included detailed studies of almost all sectors of the global mining industry, such as gold, uranium, coal, gas, copper, nickel, platinum group elements, rare earths, mineral sands. To date he has presented or published more than 200 journal, conference and technical papers or reports (nearly two thirds of which are peer-reviewed) - with his research differentiated by the integration of rich data sets, leading the way in quantifying the environmental and sustainability issues affecting modern mining. Dr. Mudd is recognised worldwide for his unique and independent expertise on mining, and is currently Head of Environmental Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where he has collaborated closely with Dr. Simon Jowitt in recent years on the geological side underpinning the environmental issues facing modern mining.

Mercury in the Air
With the help of an electrostatic precipitator (ESP) coal fired power plants utilize a highly charged electric field in order to trap ash and other particulates, keeping the amount of ash escaping from the plant very low. However, mercury can also be found in coal, and the ESP’s are less adept at capturing it. In order to solve this problem Michigan engineers have developed a method that works in tandem with an ESP, reducing the amount of mercury emitted into the air while at the same time not adding a separate process to an already complex power plant system. ABOUT THE PROFESSOR Herek Clack is a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. His Research focuses on the study, characterization, and enhancement of fluid, thermal, and mass transport processes, primarily associated with combustion and combustion emissions control. Specific areas of interest include: droplet combustion, especially involving radiant heating effects; control of trace toxic and metallic compounds emitted as a result of fossil fuel combustion; electrostatic precipitation and novel uses of electro-hydrodynamics (EHD) to augment heat and mass transfer; particulate carbon emissions and their climate forcing effects, especially as they intersect with other air pollutant emissions.

What is MINING MACHINERY ENGINEERING? What does MINING MACHINERY ENGINEERING mean? MINING MACHINERY ENGINEERING meaning - MINING MACHINERY ENGINEERING definition - MINING MACHINERY ENGINEERING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Mining Machinery Engineering is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering that applies the principles of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and mining engineering for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mining equipment. It includes study of various aspects of equipment used in earthworks, mineral processing, bulk material handling, drilling and construction. Surface mining equipment evolved at a high pace in the 20th century as the scale of mining grew up. In the first twenty years of the 1900s, steam power was largely replaced by internal combustion engines and electric motors. Till the 1970s such equipment mainly used mechanical system and cables for power transmission after which they started to be replaced by hydraulic drive system for small machines. However, mechanical and cable drives are still dominant in large machines. Similar development took place in the development of underground machinery. Drilling and blasting replaced manual cutting of ores. Lately, use of continuous mining machines has become order of the day to comply with environmental regulations, protect surface features and also to achieve increased production rate. As the concern for safety in mines increased and highly stringent regulations were put in place, it required mining machinery engineers to be highly conversant with such regulations. Since Mining Machinery Engineering is a wholesome branch, the course of which covers disciplines like Mechanical Engineering, Mining Engineering, Mineral Engineering, Electrical Engineering, the employment opportunities are tremendous. Mining Machinery Engineering provides excellent career opportunities in various industries such as mining, heavy earth moving equipment, construction industry, mineral processing and other related industries. It is recognized by the Ministry of Labor, Government of India as equivalent to mechanical and electrical engineering for working in mines. The unique branch of Mining Machinery has a plethora of recruitment scope. Every single engineer of Mining Machinery Engineering has a vast on site experience of Machines deployed in both opencast as well as underground mines along with this, students are well versed with various bulk solid handling equipment like crushers, conveyors, feeders etc. The course of Mining Machinery Engineering also caters to construction equipment like Motor Graders, Dozers, Compactors etc. The amount of cost saved by the company hiring Mining Machinery Engineering graduates is quite high as every Mining Machinery Engineer has a multi-disciplinary approach towards solving problems owing to their vast area of expertise.

OSM expects its rulemaking to trim 7,000 coal mining jobs in 22 states
1/27/2011 - Peter Mail, a spokesman for the surface mining reclamation office, said the proposal's aim is "to better strike the balance between protecting the public and the environment while providing for viable coal mining." Mali said the document is the first working draft that was shared with state agencies, which are giving their comments on it. (More) http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=133248892 1/26/2011 - The Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement document says the agency's preferred rules would impose standards for water quality and restrictions on mining methods that would affect the quality or quantity of streams near coal mines. The office, a branch of the Interior Department, estimated that the protections would trim coal production to the point that an estimated 7,000 of the nation's 80,600 coal mining jobs would be lost. Production would decrease or stay flat in 22 states, but climb 15 percent in North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana. . . . West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection official Thomas Clarke told the Associated Press on Wednesday. "I've had OSM technical people who are concerned with stream impacts and outside contractors for OSM who are subcontractors on the EIS give me their opinion that the whole thing's a bunch of junk."

In the past 12 months the Office of Surface Mining has increased the number of oversight inspections to evaluate how each state is administering its regulatory program. This a clip from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6WSvVpdm-w ---- 12/27/2010 - http://www.register-herald.com/todaysfrontpage/x258589936/What-s-in-a-name-Mountaintop-removal-vs-mountaintop-development (Excerpt) "In my mind, mountaintop 'removal' implies the site is mined and then left barren, lifeless and flattened. This couldn't be further from the truth," said Chris Hamilton of the West Virginia Coal Association. He points to the mining permit requirement that forces miners to restore the mines to their approximate original contour or to configure the land for an "alternate use." Restoring the land occurs in about 90 percent to 95 percent of former surface mines, Hamilton said. "We rebuild the mountain peak, resculpting it to approximately as close as possible to the original premining topography of the land, then we reseed it with grasses and trees," Hamilton said. However, Vivian Stockman, an organizer for the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition, told West Virginia Public Broadcasting that a flyover of the southern West Virginia coalfields suggests little development on former surface mine sites. "If they're hoping to, you know, create shopping malls on some of these, I don't know where they're going to get all the shoppers," she said. "All the communities around these areas have been driven away." She added that the notion that West Virginia needs more flat land is a myth. "Back in 2002 we had some volunteers create some maps for us," she said. "There were just massive amounts of land that are not, in any way, shape or form, developed." Researchers from the Natural Resources Defense Council found that about 1.2 million acres and about 500 mountains were flattened by surface mining in central Appalachia. An aerial imagery analysis by NRDC found that about 90 percent of mountaintop removal sites were not converted to economic uses. Only about 4 percent of West Virginia and Kentucky mountaintops had been redeveloped, NRDC found. --- 11/18/2010 - Salazar Commends OSM Initiatives to Improve Oversight of State Surface Coal Mining Programs - http://www.doi.gov/news/pressreleases/Salazar-Commends-OSM-Initiatives-to-Improve-Oversight-of-State-Surface-Coal-Mining-Programs.cfm --- In June 2009, the U.S. Department of the Interior (Interior Department) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to reduce the harmful environmental impacts of coal mining in six states in central Appalachia. Through the MOU, the three agencies intend to strengthen oversight and regulation and minimize the adverse environmental consequences of mountaintop removal mining.

EPA denies Spruce #1 Mine permit in West Virginia, a game-changer decsion
1/18/2011 - Spruce Mine Veto: Engineering study shows Arch Coal could have greatly reduced impacts at little cost http://blogs.wvgazette.com/coaltattoo/2011/01/18/spruce-mine-veto-engineering-study-shows-arch-coal-could-have-greatly-reduced-impacts-at-little-cost/ On January 13, 2011, EPA decided to revoke the 404 permit that had been issued to the Spruce #1 Mine. This is video from a packed public hearing held in Charleston, WV on May 18, 2010 -- more about the hearing: http://wvgazette.com/News/201005180947 1/13/2011 - Word is just coming down that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has vetoed the largest single mountaintop removal permit in West Virginia history. The move is part of an Obama administration crackdown aimed at reducing the effects of mountaintop removal coal-mining on the environment and on coalfield communities in Appalachian — impacts that scientists are increasingly finding to be pervasive and irreversible. (Continued) http://blogs.wvgazette.com/coaltattoo/2011/01/13/breaking-news-epa-vetoes-spruce-mine-permit/ 1/13/2011 - More on the EPA decision http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/01/13/west.virginia.epa.coal/ http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/01/13/AR2011011307095.html 1/12/2011 - http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2011/01/12/egg-farmers-cattlemen-lobby-white-house-to-allow-wva-coal-mine/ (Excerpt) Nearly two dozen industry groups --- including the National Realtors Association, the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association and, yes, the United Egg Producers --- are urging the White House to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from yanking a water permit for a mountaintop-removal coal mining project in Logan County, West Virginia that would be one of the largest in Appalachia. Why do those industries care about Arch Coal Inc.'s Spruce No. 1 mine? Because, like coal producers, their businesses require federal water permits. If EPA pulls the permit, it would mark the first time in the agency's 40-year history that it canceled a water permit after it was issued --- a scary precedent in the groups' eyes. "The implications could be staggering, reaching all areas of the U.S. economy including but not limited to the agriculture, home building, mining, transportation and energy sectors," the groups say in a letter dated Tuesday to Nancy Sutley, chairwoman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality. 10/15/2010 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's regional administrator, Shawn Garvin, has recommended that his agency veto the Clean Water Act permit for the controversial Spruce No. 1 Mine in Logan County, W.Va. http://blogs.wvgazette.com/coaltattoo/2010/10/15/breaking-news-epa-regional-administrator-recommends-historic-veto-of-spruce-mine-permit/ Spruce No. 1 mine was originally permitted by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) to Hobet Mining, Inc., a subsidiary of Arch Coal, Inc., in November 1998. The 404 permit associated with valley fills proposed for the mine was initially approved by USACE in January 1999. However, subsequent events prevented the mine from moving forward in the permit process until 2007.

Power Plants Are POISONING Groundwater All Over America
According to a new report, 90% of coal-fired power plants across the country have completely contaminated the groundwater surrounding their plants with heavy metals that come from the toxic coal ash waste products they produce. This toxic coal ash is filled with cancer-causing toxins and other endocrine and neurological disruptors that can lead to lifelong problems. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what is happening and how we can put an end to it.   Link – https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-coalash/coal-ash-contaminates-groundwater-near-most-u-s-coal-plants-study-idUSKCN1QL0CH Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

According to a new report put out in part by the Environmental Integrity Project and Earth Justice, 91% of the coal fired power plants across the United States. 91% have shown toxic levels of heavy metal in the groundwater surrounding those power plants and those heavy metal toxins that cause cancer. They disrupt into current systems, they cause neurological damage. Those heavy metals are coming from the coal ash that is produced as a result of burning coal for fuel here in the United States. And because we as a country do such a horrible job of regulating what the hell happens to coal ash, this contamination is getting worse. We know that this coal ash contains things like mercury, cadmium, arsenic, chromium, all sorts of things that once they get into the human body, in this case, by consumption because the groundwater is contaminated, they're going to wreak havoc on your body and not just temporary. It's not just going to mess you up. You know, maybe have a couple of days where you can't breathe so well. These are permanent damages. These are things that can't just simply be flushed out of the body and okay, I'm fine now. You disrupt the neurological system of a developing fetus or even a young child, you've just ruined their life essentially. You've ruined their life. Where the Republicans, the pro lifers on this issue, Huh? You know, oh, we can't have a woman who was raped, terminate her pregnancy, but it's totally cool if that woman drinks a glass of water contaminated with corporate toxins that are going to destroy that child's chance of ever having a normal life. Totally cool with that. Right? We can poison the hell out of a fees. It fetus, we just can't do anything. You know, if a woman decides that she doesn't want to carry this child, no, that's horrible, but let's just destroy it from the inside and then make it a burden on the state for the rest of it's like, yeah, sure. That's, that's real prolife of you there. The bottom line is that we have a very real problem in this country that is apparently getting much worse and that is the poisons seeping out of these coal fired power plants. And here's the sick, twisted part, folks. We shouldn't have to be doing this. We as a country could have moved past coal years ago had we had a government in place that wanted to move us past fossil fuels, we could have built the infrastructure for renewable energy 15 years ago. Yeah, the technology has come a long way since then. So we could have just upgraded it. We could have invested in a jobs training program to move coal miners and power plant workers into the renewable energy field, better jobs, cleaner jobs. You're not going to get black lung building solar panels. But we didn't. We could have started it under Bush. We could have finished it under Obama and we could be living in a better world today day, but we didn't. And now we're behind the curve. We're behind the eight ball. It's going to take years now to put the infrastructure in place to switch to a renewable economy. And in the meantime, as this report points out, we're just gonna keep poisoning more and more American citizens because we were too damn stupid years ago to address the problem before it became a real threat to humanity. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

BECCS scrubs the CO2 out of the exhaust and sequesters it underground, thus taking CO2 out of the air via that plants and putting it into the ground. Direct Air Capture With DAC, giant carbon scrubbers pull CO2 out of the air, after which the CO2 can be used to produce other items like fuel. Two companies that are leading in this field are Carbon Engineering and Climeworks. Stratospheric Aerosol Injection SAI is, basically, creating an artificial volcano. The Mount Pinatubo eruption of 1991 cooled the planet by half a degree for 18 months. By flying a fleet of SAI Lofters (SAILs) regularly into the upper atmosphere, we could spread particulates around the planet and cool the atmosphere. Space Solar Shield By creating a giant solar shield at the L1 Lagrange point, we could block up to 2% of the sun's rays, enough to alter the amount of heat getting trapped by the atmosphere.

Making Mining Work for Zambia: Economic, Health, & Environmental Nexus of the Copper Mining Economy
Zambia's rich mineral resources are one of the country's most important assets. They contribute to national income, exports, employment and government revenue. As the country looks to the future, Zambia faces important choices on how to manage its mineral wealth. There are trade-offs in the design of the mining fiscal regime. Mining inevitably entails environmental and public health risks. Mining firms make choices about procurement that influences the industry's contribution to the Zambian economy. This brief video introduces the World Bank's Fifth Zambia Economic Brief "Making Mining Work for Zambia: The Economic, Health, and Environmental Nexus of Zambia's Copper Mining Economy," which was released in June 2015. It asks how Zambia can uses its mineral resources to help the country achieve its economic development ambitions. The report suggests areas where the government, business community, and civil society can collaborate to enhance the contribution of mining to Zambia.

Among other things, Haden said Hobet Mining and the Corps had illegally "segmented" the Spruce Mine into smaller parts, so regulators wouldn't take a closer look, as they would if it were one large mine proposal. "It seems apparent that the operations were split intentionally to allow the commencement of mining operations under a less critical agency review and to delay more detailed scrutiny until after significant work has begun," Haden said. But on June 24, 1999, the Corps told Hobet Mining it would not approve the project under a nationwide permit. The company would have to seek an individual permit, which requires extensive environmental studies that could take two years. In a letter to Hobet engineer James Johnston, the Corps said it had "reluctantly reached the conclusion, for a variety of reasons, that there is virtually no chance" that Haden would allow the mine under a nationwide permit. Originally, Hobet proposed to fill 7.8 miles of streams with 150 million cubic yards of rock and earth. Its final permit proposed to fill 4.1 miles of streams, a reduction of 47 percent. In court papers, environmental groups argue that the EPA letter "is not a finding of minimal impacts. It is a finding that environmental impacts have been balanced with economic costs, and only those impacts that are not costly to eliminate have been minimized. "[The Clean Water Act] does not allow this type of cost-benefit analysis," the environmental groups said. "It provides that environmental effects must be minimal, not minimized considering costs, or minimized considering jobs." === (Excerpt) In 1995, the Highland Conservancy's Cindy Rank was already warning that hundreds of miles of streams had been buried, with the full knowledge of state environmental regulators. Two years later, U.S. News & World Report published an exposé predicting that half the mountain peaks across a swath of southern West Virginia would be gone in 20 years. Photographs published with the article created a sensation. The pictures led James Weekley, a disabled miner whose home sat in a hollow below the proposed Spruce Mine, to seek help from Joe Lovett. Arch Coal Company had by then mined on a ridge above Blair for six years, reducing peaks by hundreds of feet. The dust, blasting, and night-and-day noise from the Dal-Tex mine had driven away most of the community's residents and businesses, some after accepting settlements and promising to leave the area. With the seams exhausted in the Dal-Tex Mine, Arch planned to move across the hollow and open Spruce Mine on the adjacent ridge where it expected to remove $2 billion worth of coal over a period of about 15 years. Haden's ruling blocked approval of the new mine and set off an uproar that reached the floor of the U.S. Senate and possibly tipped the 2000 West Virginia election, and the presidency, to George W. Bush. Democratic Sen. Robert C. Byrd tried to overturn the decision on the floor of the Senate. Like Underwood, Byrd warned darkly of an end to the West Virginia coal industry. Others likened Haden to Hitler, denouncing him from the steps of the state capital and harassing him with convoys of coal trucks circling the federal courthouse with air horns blaring. === This clip from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LojPk2VQe5g

Olympic Dam mine expansion- Environmental impacts of tailings & water by Dr Gavin Mudd - Pt 3
http://cuttlefishcountry.com BHP Billiton's Olympic Dam mine is massive and destined to become the biggest open cut mine in the world. Naturally, with massive mines come massive impacts... environmentally, socially and economically. Widely published environmental engineer Dr Gavin Mudd (Monash University) gives this presentation on the impact the mining operation will have from the desert to the sea, and beyond through the export of dangerous radioactive materials. Tailings dams will leak radioactive waste into the earth in the South Australian desert, the water drawn from the Great Artesian Basin will continue to dry natural mound springs, threaten pastoral and agricultural bores and endanger arid zone ecology and indigenous sacred sites. Dr Gavin Mudd delivered this presentation in Adelaide, South Australia on October 9th, 2011... the day before the mega-mine project received environmental approval from both State and Federal Governments.

Meet Joel May, Environment and Community Manager, Oaky Creek Coal
“Oaky Creek Coal practices responsible mining with a focus on continual improvement and progressing in a way that minimises negative impacts and promotes positive ones. We have a challenging rehabilitation target that averages nearly 300 ha per year for the life of mine. Tied to this is a targeted water management strategy that aims to promote returning clean water to downstream farmers and natural environment and reuse/clean mine affected water using water treatment and other processes.
