Helping Good Samaritans Clean our Streams
 
01:55
While in Creede, I had the opportunity to meet with members of the Willow Creek Reclamation Committee and tour the work they have done to clean up Willow Creek and surrounding streams. I have been pushing for legislation to support Good Samaritan efforts like this one since my days in the House. Two years ago, I introduced the Good Samaritan Cleanup of Abandoned Hardrock Mines Act (S.1777), which would free Good Samaritan volunteers to help clean up abandoned mines without assuming full legal liability for contamination they did not create. Most recently, I sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson asking her to clarify the EPA's ability to facilitate Good Samaritan cleanups of abandoned hardrock mines.

These deposits form a mineralized package that is of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal, oil shale, gemstones, limestone, chalk, dimension stone, rock salt, potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stones and metal has been a human activity since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. De Re Metallica, Georgius Agricola, 1550, Book I, Para. 1Mining operations usually create a negative environmental impact, both during the mining activity and after the mine has closed. Hence, most of the world's nations have passed regulations to decrease the impact. Work safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have significantly improved safety in mines. Levels of metals recycling are generally low. Unless future end-of-life recycling rates are stepped up, some rare metals may become unavailable for use in a variety of consumer products. Due to the low recycling rates, some landfills now contain higher concentrations of metal than mines themselves.

Thus, the main focus of Ghana's mining and minerals development industry remains focused on gold. Ghana is Africa's largest gold producer, producing 80.5 t in 2008. Ghana is also a major producer of bauxite, manganese and diamonds. Ghana has 23 large-scale mining companies producing gold, diamonds, bauxite and manganese, and, there are also over 300 registered small scale mining groups and 90 mine support service companies.Other mineral commodities produced in the country are natural gas, petroleum, salt, and silver.
