Coal Mining the Modern Way: Newcastle, 1957
A silent newsreel item from 1957 about mechanised coal mining procedures at the Awaba State Coal Mine, near Newcastle in New South Wales. The item opens with shots of miners going down into, and later leaving, the mine. We see older footage of miners underground using picks and shovels to break up the coal and load it onto carts. A pit pony takes the coal away. The newsreel contrasts this with the modern methods of cutting coal from the coalface using a machine. Two miners bore a hole in the coalface and set explosives. Coal is loaded into a truck using a mechanical loader and taken to storage bins by a locomotive. A conveyor belt takes the coal from the mine to the Crusher Shed where it is transported away by truck. Coal Mining the Modern Way, Newcastle, NSW, 1957. NFSA title: 128513

The World's Longest Truck - Road Train in Australia
Australia - a country road trains. In the Australian outback, where for hundreds of kilometers around you to meet a couple of other cattle-farms, or "stations", as they call them, train - a vital necessity. After all, in order to deliver the goods to the destination of the train, the owner, such as a sheep station would have to get their living from the load to the nearest railway hundreds of kilometers. Road trains - powerful trucks, which stretches for two, three (and sometimes more) of huge trailer, capable in a matter of days to cross the Green Continent, connecting the country's states and territories.

Europe's Worst Ecological Disaster Since Chernobyl (2000)
Cyanide River (2000): A leak of cyanide near Baia Mare, Romania, into the Someș River by the gold mining company Aurul spelled disaster for the Hungarian fishing and culinary industries. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures# When the tailings dam of the Esmeralda Explorations Gold Mine in Romania broke, it sent a torrent of cyanide and heavy metals into the Szamos and Tisza Rivers downstream in Hungary. Today both rivers are dead. The fishermen who harvested their riches must now shovel the carcasses of prime fish into skips. Fishing communities are desperate for compensation. Yet despite the evidence of disastrous pollution, officials from Esmeralda are in deep denial. It "could be increased salinity," according to the spokesperson from the mine's Australian co-owners. Yet with their stinging eyes and itchy throats the fishermen are angered by the mine rep's response. "I would start by making him a good soup of fish poisoned by cyanide and making him eat it." Up river in Romania the company are heightening the earthen banks of the mine's wastewater pools. They blame unusually heavy snow for causing the January 30th spill. To Hungary's Foreign Affairs spokesperson it's a reason but not an excuse - the banks simply should have been designed to cope. As this more recent spill demonstrates, the mining operations are unsafe. ABC Australia speaks to those involved and affected by the disaster.

Golden Gamble. Gold mining in the Philippines, a dirty business
More films about the Philippines: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/philippines/ - The use of child labour in the Philippine’s Paracale, or ‘Goldtown’, is widespread - Extracting gold involves diving into mud-filled shafts and using toxic mercury - Poverty and lack of alternative jobs force people into this highly dangerous work - Many die young due to work accidents or breathing problems, others develop chronic illness The Philippines’ town of Paracale was dubbed “Goldtown” for its rich deposits of the precious metal. Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

Upper Big Branch - Never Again
This documentary looks at the forensic evidence from the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster that occurred on April 5, 2010 and its implications. Can we make coal mining safer? The purpose behind the Upper Big Branch - Never Again documentary is to review forensic evidence from the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster that occurred on April 5, 2010. The film seeks to start a public discussion about the need for cooperation among the mining industry, government and mining experts to improve mining safety. Analyzing forensic evidence from tragedies like the explosion at Upper Big Branch and adopting innovations and technology developed by coal companies could bring improvements to mine safety. Don Blankenship is concerned that improvements in mine safety will not be made as long as the geological characteristics of mines and mine disasters are not fully investigated.

One of the world’s smallest and least populated countries in the world, located somewhere between Hawaii and Australia. Less that 200 tourists visit Tuvalu every year, and it’s a special experience to be here and witness one of the most lively scenes in this world... which takes place at the airport every night around 5PM! The one and only airport turns into a massive playground for kids and adults to play their favorite sports like soccer, basketball, volleyball and rugby! Why? Because the island is so small and there is literally no other place to play besides this air strip! In every other airport around the world (that I've seen), it’s illegal to even walk inside of the airport ground at ANY time… but here in Tuvalu, it’s encouraged!

🇦🇺 Australia's Mine Games | 101 East
It will be the largest coal mine in Australia and one of the biggest in the world - if it goes ahead. The proposed Carmichael mine will span more than 30 kilometres and produce 60 million tonnes of coal annually. Adani, the Indian company behind the mine, says it will create thousands of jobs, and it has the Australian Government's unwavering support. But its facing fierce opposition from critics who say the mine is commercially unviable and will wreak havoc on the environment. 101 East investigates whether the Adani mine will be a bonanza for Australia or a destructive disaster.

That Day in 1902 - The Mount Kembla Mine Disaster
The 31st of July 1902 was the worst day in Mount Kembla's and Kembla Height's history, 95 of its men and boys were killed in the Mt Kembla Coal Mine Disaster along with Wollongong man Major Henry Osborne MacCabe a rescuer. Almost every house in Kembla Heights suffered the loss of a father, brother, husband or son. In some homes fathers and sons died together, in one home four brothers never came home. The grief was inescapable. The sad and terrible tragedy is marked to this day by headstones in local cemeteries, all with the same date, 31st of July 1902. This short film was the first film my sister Romina and I made together. In 2008 we wanted to commemorate the 106th anniversary of the Mt Kembla mine disaster with something emotionally moving, something that would put the viewer in the place of those left behind, giving them an opportunity to internalise the tragedy. When we read history, we read it from a safe distance; we can protect our emotions and detach ourselves from the trauma. Film and particularly sound in this case, provides a way to bypass the analytical brain and reach the emotions. With a budget of $0.00, I research all I could on the Mt Kembla coal mine disaster. Stuart Piggin and Henry Lee’s 1992 book ‘The Mt Kembla Disaster’ was my textbook scoured for any mention of sounds and sights mentioned in newspaper reports of the time. My step-father Graham Wade assisted with script writing, structure and review (sadly it was the last creative project we did with him, he passed away in 2009). We borrowed a camera and filmed over a week end. We didn't have a horse or a coal mine tunnel to film in, but we improvised making the camera the horse and a dark night the tunnel. Then came the long process of editing, creating and adding a moving soundscape and just the right music with Miffy Ryan on violin and Jonny Spillane on the tin whistle. Romina described it as poetry with sound. You'll need good speakers to hear all the subtle sounds. No words are spoken, yet you are carried away with the story. The film has been on display at the Mt Kembla Heritage Centre ever since and now for the first time, to commemorate the 114th anniversary of the disaster; we've made it available on-line. We hope you enjoy it.

World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

Diavik Diamond Mine This diamond mine, located in Canada’s remote Northwest Territories is actually a pretty recent hole! Work only began on this thing in 2003, and it is one of the world’s preeminent sources of gem diamonds. Since mining operations began, it has produced over 100 million carats of diamonds!! 6. Berkeley Pit Located in Butte, Montana, this copper mine is now filled with heavily acidic water. Opened in 1955, this mine was used to get copper out of the Earth. Ironically it closed on Earth day in 1982. In the 80’s Berkeley Pit was 1700 feet deep and 900 feet wide. Approximately 320 million tons of ore and over 700 million tons of waste rock were mined from the pit. 5. Mir Mine This is a diamond mine, and one of the largest excavations in history. This mine in Russia is the 2nd largest man made hole in the world. Located in outside of Mirny, a small town in Eastern Siberia, this place is 1,722 feet (525 meters) deep, and 3,900 feet (1.25 kilometers) across. 4. IceCube Neutrino Observatory There are many different ways to make holes in the Earth as you know, or will soon learn. But for the University of Wisconsin, they wanted to do a study of the Earth from a different perspective. They decided to go to Antarctica and drill a massive hole into the very ice caps of the Earth to see what's down there. Thus, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory was made. 3. Kimberley Diamond Mine Also known as the Big Hole, the Kimberly diamond mine in South Africa, is home to the world’s largest diamond mine! It is so large it is visible by space and has produced some of the world’s largest diamonds. 2. Bingham County Mine Also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine in Utah, this mine definitely takes the cake. This copper mine has been in use for over a century, and it's still open to this day. It's the biggest copper mine in the world and provides about 25% of the country’s copper needs. 1. Kola Superdeep Borehole Have you ever wondered what's at the center of the Earth? Fact is, no one really knows which is why the Kola Superdeep Borehole is so important. While the Bingham County Mine may be the largest manmade hole in the world, the Kola Superdeep Borehole is the deepest hole in the world!

Olympic Dam mine will fuel nuclear disasters like Fukushima & leak radioactive waste - Pt 2
http://cuttlefishcountry.com David Noonan, anti-nuclear campaigner, continues his speech at a forum on October 9, 2011 in Adelaide, South Australia. David discusses South Australia's complicity in the proliferation of nuclear weapons, risks and disasters as the Olympic Dam mine prepares to scale up its out put of uranium and radioactive copper concentrate to international markets. With China and Putin's Russia eager to buy, diplomatic envoys have been exploring opportunities to sell these minerals to new markets including India. In the developing world, and in autocratic political conditions like those in China, the risk scales up again. India we know is actively expanding its nuclear arsenal in an arms race with Pakistan, and every nuclear reactor is a ticking time bomb, susceptible to natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis as we were reminded by Fukushima, Japan and make primary targets for future terrorist or military attacks.

After many years of driving all types of Richmond Towing’s trucks and I was getting older and slower so I bought one of Richmond’s little tow truck and run as a owner/driver, I did most of the night tows to give the other drivers a break. Most towing company’s all the drivers work day and do callouts at night 24/7 when I retired my tow that I had spent way to much money on making it my pride and joy, I knew I would never get the money it was worth so I donated to the National Road Transport Hall of Fame in Alice Springs.
KAGEM in ZAMBIA, The World's Largest Emerald Mine.
Dear all, I'm happy to invite you to discover a new field video on "Field Gemology by Vincent Pardieu". During a field expedition in June 2018 we visited the KAGEM emerald mine in the Kafubu area in Zambia in order to collect reference samples for the "Bahrain Institute for Pearls & Gemstones (DANAT)". Emeralds mining started in the Kafubu area in Zambia during the 1960's but it is only after the 1980's that Zambia became a major producer of emeralds. In 2008 Gemfields took control of the KAGEM mine and turned it into a modern very sophisticated and efficient operation. They combined several small open pits into a huge one called the Chama pit. With more than 1km wide and long and over 120 meters deep, it is the World's largest emerald mining pit. In this pit we can witness a combination of mechanized mining (when the miners work to remove the rocks that do not host emeralds) and hand mining when the miners get close to the emerald rich reaction zone between the pegmatites (rich in beryllium) and the talc-magnetite-schist (rich in chromium). Many thanks to all the people we met in Zambia during that field expedition for DANAT and a very special thanks everybody at Kagem and Gemfields for their welcome and support in order to allow us to collect on site, inside the mine, the research samples requested by DANAT Enjoy!

Reading the Ground Training DVD - ACG
The Australian Centre for Geomechanics (ACG) has developed this geotechnical hazard awareness training DVD for underground metalliferous mine workers. To purchase this product or find out more information, visit http://www.acg.uwa.edu.au/shop#trainprods Overview Geotechnical risks in underground metalliferous mining can be associated with all facets of mining activities including: scaling, installing services, loading and hauling, development, stoping and ground support installation. These risks can lead to serious consequences ranging from production and equipment loss to severe injuries and fatalities. Good risk management implies that the hazards are well understood by all employees that may be exposed to them. A sound understanding of ground control concepts is fundamental to enable mine workers to identify geotechnical hazards, take appropriate actions and ensure their own safety. No matter how good the systems in place may be, the first line of defense against accidents is the capable, knowledge-based judgement that each individual mine worker demonstrates.

Yet the families of the drowned sailors have endured threats and cover-ups as the Russian government attempted to hide its culpability in the tragedy.

Truck hangs precariously on the edge of a bridge in Australia after driver thrown from seat in crash
A truck hangs on the edge of the Bolte Bridge in Melbourne, Australia, after a crash in which the driver was thrown from his cabin onto the ground 15 metres below. The truck driver is in a critical condition after falling from his truck which had crashed and almost tumbled off the busy road. The driver had swerved to avoid a car that veered in front of him on the Bolte Bridge causing his vehicle to roll and hit the side of the road. He then fell around 15 metres to the ground below. Nearby workers rushed to his aid. One witness called Joe said: "There was no signs of obvious trauma, no blood or anything like that, no bones protruding or anything like that so I was amazed. I saw the truck as well hanging upside down and dark and I couldn't believe he was still conscious." The man, thought to be in his twenties, was taken to hospital where he had surgery for injuries to his head and pelvis. Cranes have been brought in to remove the wreckage and reopen the road.

Ghost towns - Wittenoom, Australia
Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. This town in Western Australia has the baleful reputation of being home to the greatest industrial disaster in Australian history. Wittenoom was the site of an asbestos mine, where thousands of workers and their families were exposed to lethal levels of blue asbestos 1,000 times higher than was legally regulated at the time. Though the town was shut down in 1966, today the air remains contaminated and toxic to breathe if stirred, and the state of Western Australia has the highest rate of malignant mesothelioma per capita of anywhere in the world. Today, three residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas.

"It will take centuries, thousands of years before everything can return to normal", says biologist Eddy Nurtjahya. The Islands of Bangka and Belitung are experiencing a tin rush and with a laissez-faire government and rampant corruption, many are now seeking international pressure to help curb this illegal trade.
