Coal Mining the Modern Way: Newcastle, 1957
 
02:27
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

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!

How 33 Chilean Miners Escaped A Collapsed Mine (2010)

Inside the Miracle (2010): In 2010 the story of the 33 Chilean miners trapped in a collapsed mine caught the imagination of people around the world.

With the trapped 33 likely to receive millions, the rest of the impoverished miners - who are now jobless - are likely to receive no compensation at all.

World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
 
04:51
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.

Europe's Worst Ecological Disaster Since Chernobyl (2000)
 
15:03
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.

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?

Golden Gamble. Gold mining in the Philippines, a dirty business
 
25:41
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.

That Day in 1902 - The Mount Kembla Mine Disaster
 
07:45
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.

Upper Big Branch - Never Again
 
49:30
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.

Wittenoom - The Abandoned Blue Asbestos Mine Ghost Town & The Residents Who Refuse To Leave

Wittenoom - The Blue Asbestos Ghost Town & The Residents Who Refuse To Leave Devils Dust Movie Trailer - The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0REkJuPi1zw Devil's Dust is a two-part Australian television docu-drama mini-series on the ABC which first screened in 2012. Based on journalist Matt Peacock's 2009 book Killer Company, Devil's Dust was researched and developed by producer Stephen Corvini for over two years prior to the series' production. Through the factual case of Bernie Banton, it recounts the tragedy of many Australian workers and their families afflicted with asbestosis and mesothelioma in the twentieth-century asbestos mining and processing industries. Though the extreme health risks of exposure to asbestos dust had been documented for many years, manufacturer James Hardie persisted in large-scale use of the material, aided by inadequate regulation by state health agencies. BEFORE he died an early death at 61 in 2007, Australia knew Bernie Banton as the smiling man with asbestosis who carried an oxygen bottle wherever he went. We didn't know all that much about him at first, just that he was up against the polished legal might and political clout of building materials manufacturer James Hardie. I still remember the company's name stamped on sheets of "fibro" in the local hardware yard. I had no idea the lives of thousands of Australians might have been jeopardised by asbestos in materials such as this. Or that underfelt made from shredded asbestos bags under old carpet leaked pain. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil%27s_Dust Banton seemed an ordinary bloke, a former factory worker, who soon became the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases. But, as this two-part series reveals, there was more to Banton than many of us realised as we watched the emerging folk hero on TV waging his seemingly losing battle against the corporate figureheads of the James Hardie company. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/arts/review/no-clean-sweep-as-miniseries-devils-dust-tackles-bernie-bantons-asbestos-story/story-fn9n8gph-1226513068301 Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 – 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely-recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries' products. Bernie himself suffered from asbestosis, Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease (ARPD) and then finally peritoneal mesothelioma. These conditions required him to carry an oxygen tank wherever he went. The 2009 book Killer Company details Banton's fight against James Hardie. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Banton Bernie Banton on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cjhzvzoo0sk Banton brought an action against Amaca Pty Ltd before the Dust Diseases Tribunal of New South Wales https://safetyatworkblog.com/2012/10/30/devils-dust-australian-movie-on-asbestos-and-corporate-morality/ Exposure to Deadly Asbestos, Pesticides, Illegal Dumping etc - The Dangers, Examples, Advice & Warnings - James Hardie Australia ( Mesothelioma ) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhyT97-KaZ_04EsHUmFurL1vLBSdMtzzR Devils Dust - Deadly Natural Blue Asbestos Facts & Dangers - Products of Asbestos - Mesothelioma https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eKi4_AM6l8

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.

Brand Australia Is Not Looking so Good
 
06:31
Brand Australia’s falling down… According to the FutureBrand Country Index 2019 — a global research survey that is held every five years — Australia’s brand is not looking so good. Australia slipped seven places from 8th in 2014 to 15th this year. That’s a significant drop. We can also see that the US is slipping in the ranks moving from 7th in 2014 to 12th this year. The UK didn’t do very well either slipping from 12th to 19th. Although Canada is still in the top 10, it did fall three places. It looks like the big English-speaking Western countries aren’t doing so well. This year’s top 10 include Japan, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Canada, Austria, and Luxembourg. Just out of interest, here are the bottom 15 countries with Bangladesh, Iran, Pakistan, Ukraine, and Iraq rounding out the bottom five — Not many surprises there. So why did Australia slip to 15th? How is this rank calculated? In their report, FutureBrand state that they took the World Bank’s top 75 countries by GDP and reordered them based on how survey recipients rate the dimensions of a country’s Purpose and Experience. Dimensions of Purpose include Value System, Quality of Life, and Business Potential. Dimensions of Experience include Heritage & Culture, Tourism, and Made In (Products & Services). These factors are important in determining the rank as they are vital for quantifying the power of a country’s brand. Brand is based entirely off perception. If a country is seen to have a low quality of life, or a bad value system, or a hard place to set up business, then this will hurt people’s perception of that country. That is, it will hurt the country’s brand. The report outlines four levers that are important in determining a country’s brand. Lever 1: Quality of Life — The new pursuit: Living richly, not just living a rich life. It’s more important than ever for a country to look after the safety, well-being, and happiness of its people. With an emphasis on all people, not just select socioeconomic tiers. Lever 2: Environmental Friendliness — Operation rescue earth. There’s always a trade-off between economic growth, human well-being, and a sustainable future. Countries like Japan are taking the lead. Lever 3: Made In — Products & Services: The badges of a country. A product or brand serves as a powerful symbol of social advancement for a country, and even influences a person’s decision to work, live, or play there. Lever 4: Polarising Politics — The knock-on effect. Perceived tolerance and political freedom are important. If travellers feel threatened by an intolerant country, then they won’t visit and spend their tourism dollars in that country. So let’s get onto Australia. What happened? This is what happened. Quality of Life perceptions degraded the most for both Australia and the UK. In Australia, disposable income has been steadily dropping in the past five years. Homelessness is on the rise due to a lack of affordable housing (with prices increasing by up to 70% over the past decade in New South Wales). As Australian politics tends towards populism, potential visitors, investors, and residents notice this intolerance and growing wealth divide, which directly impacts Australia’s Quality of Life index. FutureBrand’s Asia-Pacific CEO, Richard Curtis, spoke of the outdated way of measuring the success of a country by GDP alone. He said that a positive national brand can boost tourism, business investment and even encourage people to choose one country’s products over another. This is all important stuff. The Australian government is willingly allowing all of this to happen. Cost of living is up. Wages are stagnant. The current government seem to be doing everything in their power to stop house prices from falling. We need house prices to fall so that regular people have enough money to live a comfortable and happy life. We should protest any cuts to Medicare. We shouldn’t allow the government to hunt down Centrelink recipients using robodebt. We should treat each other nicely and look after the environment — not our rich mining mates and faction leaders. As I’ve said before, Australia is slipping. We can see it in the world around us. The wealth divide is growing. Democracy is eroding. And now it’s impacting our international image.

Ghost towns - Wittenoom, Australia
 
01:02
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.

Huge explosion at illegal mine kills two, injures five in Colombia
 
01:04
An explosion at an illegal gold mine in the Colombian town of Marmato killed two miners and injured five others. According to Mario Tangarife, the president of the Association of Traditional Miners in Colombia, the miners had improperly detonated dynamite. Rescue efforts to save the miners were headed by two engineers and included a rescue team and excavation machinery from the National Mining Agency. Illegal mining is not uncommon in the mountain town of Marmato, where some 300 underground mines are said to be active. After mining conglomerate Gran Colombia Gold abandoned mines throughout Colombia, illegal mining has increased nationwide. In response to the increase in illegal mining, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has tried to shut down illegal mines throughout the country. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Reading the Ground Training DVD - ACG
 
02:41
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.

Truck hangs precariously on the edge of a bridge in Australia after driver thrown from seat in crash
 
00:52
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.

Eight miners found dead in South African gold mine, one still missing
 
00:51
Originally published on January 6, 2014 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Rescuers recovered eight bodies on Thursday (February 6) after a fire and rock-fall at Harmony Gold's Doornkop mine, 30 km west of Johannesburg. One miner is still missing. The Johannesburg-based company said in an e-mailed statement said that the search continues for the ninth employee. The National Union of Mineworkers said in a statement that seismic activity on Tuesday evening dislodged rocks and damaged pipes and power cables, triggering a fire in the tunnel which broke out about 1,733m underground. Eight miners were rescued on Wednesday after they escaped into a "rescue bay" equipped with oxygen tanks and water and were later brought to the surface. "The situation is deeply regrettable," Susan Shabangu, the mineral resources minister, said in a statement on Thursday, as reported by AlJazeera. "We must ensure that we do all we can to get to the bottom of what caused this incident in order to prevent similar occurrences in future." The incident is the most serious in South Africa since July of 2009, when nine workers died, most of them from suffocation, in a rock-fall at a platinum mine. Mining is a vital part of South Africa's economy, yet South African gold mines are among the deepest and the most unstable in the world. The Doornkop mine is located in the West Rand, which is rich with gold. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
