Don't trust Adani with the Great Barrier Reef
Adani are an Indian mining company that want to build Australia's biggest coal port on the Great Barrier Reef coastline. The port expansion will require massive dredging and dumping in the World Heritage Area, and poses a grave risk to an already vulnerable ecosystem. When Adani built a coal port and power plant in Mundra, India, it destroyed the environment that had sustained local fishing and farming businesses for generations. Those villagers are now bravely speaking out against Adani, and they send a warning to Australia - don't trust Adani.

The Biggest Secret In Australian Gold Mining History
You don't have to believe me, that's fine with me. I can say this, right after I made this video, I overlaid the Australian gold map over this, and I was right about the dark spots. Nut there was also some bright areas as well. You would want to get your alignment very precise. Remember me when this all pays off for you. If you need my help you can send me a plane ticket, and we can go get some nuggets. I know this is hard to believe, but if you watch some of my other videos, it will make it easier.

Australia's biodiversity: mining
Mining occurs throughout Australia, but its direct impacts on biodiversity are relatively limited compared with other major land uses because the areas affected are generally small. Dr Alan Andersen talks about the main impacts of mining on biodiversity and how these can be appropriately managed through processes like strategic regional assessments, use of bioindicators in rehabilitation, and biodiversity offsets.

Environmentalists fear damage to Great Barrier Reef amid coal mine talks
A plan to allow a mining company access to an enormous coal reserve near the coast of Australia has environmentalists worried. There are major concerns about its potential damage to the Great Barrier Reef. But local politicians say the mine will bring much-needed jobs.

Ichthys LNG Project Overview - Western Australia
http://www.jobcontax.com The Ichthys LNG Project will have an initial capacity to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG per annum and approximately 1.6 million tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per annum, as well as 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak over an operational life of 40 years. Gas from the Ichthys Field will undergo preliminary processing at the offshore central processing facility (CPF) to remove water and raw liquids, including a large proportion of the condensate. This condensate will be pumped to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility anchored nearby, from which it will be transferred to tankers for delivery to markets. The gas will be transported from the CPF through a subsea pipeline more than 885 kilometres to the onshore LNG processing plant proposed for Blaydin Point on Middle Arm Peninsula, Darwin, Northern Territory. It will be cooled to below minus 161 degrees Celsius, the point at which the gas becomes a liquid, known as liquefied natural gas.

Early Kalgoorlie WESTERN AUSTRALIA 1893--1900 Gold Rush Aboriginals History
ONE OF A SERIES ON KALGOORLIE SEE http://video.google.com.au/videosearch?q=DON+PUGH+KALGOORLIE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalgoorlie Kalgoorlie is a Western Australian city located about 600 km east of Perth. Its current approximate population is 30,000. For eastward train travellers, on the trans-continental "Indian Pacific" service, Kalgoorlie is the last town encountered for hundreds of kilometres before entering the vast expanse of the Nullarbor Plain. The "Prospector" train run by Transwa provides daily services to Perth In June 1893, prospectors Patrick (Paddy) Hannan, Tom Flanagan, and Dan O'Shea were travelling to Mt Youle when one of their horses cast a shoe. During the resultant halt in their journey, the men noticed signs of gold in the area, and decided to stay put. On June 17, 1893, Hannan filed a Reward Claim, leading to hundreds of men swarming to the area in search of gold and Kalgoorlie was born. The mining of gold, along with other metals such as nickel, has been a major industry in Kalgoorlie ever since. The concentrated area of large gold mines surrounding the original Hannan find is often referred to as the Golden Mile, and is considered by some to be the richest square mile of earth on the planet. The town's population was about 30,000 people in 1903. DON PUGH producer: Don Pugh

Australia's Largest Coal Mine in Jeopardy
The case against building Australia’s largest coal mine has focused on the threats of runaway climate change and ruin of the Great Barrier Reef. But finances may yet prove the key. Leading economists and City analysts are baffled by plans from India’s Adani Group to build the A$16.5bn Carmichael mine and Abbot Point port expansion – just as coal prices have collapsed. If the Carmichael project fails to convince investors, it could jeopardise plans for at least eight other mega mines in the coal-rich Galilee basin. The Queensland government has been an enthusiastic supporter of mining the Galilee basin: it has poured A$2bn of public money into funding the expansion of the port, according to the Australia Institute. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/may/14/the-financial-case-against-australias-largest-coal-mine http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

CARAVAN TRIP 2007 Port Hedland was originally known by the Indigenous Kariyarra and Nyamal people as Marrapikurrinya, which either means "place of good water" Though the coastline in the area had been explored in the 1700s, Captain Peter Hedland was one of the first Europeans to explore the harbour for the purpose of developing an export port. Peter Hedland arrived in the area in April 1863 onboard his boat, Mystery that he had built himself at Point Walter on the banks of the Swan River. He named the Harbour Mangrove Harbour and reported that it would make a good landing site with a well protected harbour and that there was also fresh water available. What Hedland failed to point out was that the harbour was difficult to enter because of a huge sandbar that sealed the entrance meaning it was only accessible at high tide and that it was difficult to enter in bad weather because of the narrow entrance.[4] During 1866 the resident Magistrate of Roebourne Treverton Sholl commissioned Charles Wedge to investigating alternative towns site to Roebourne. Wedge reported that Port Hedland's suitability was pessimistic. In 1891 the exploration of the area by Tom Traine John Wedge and Syd Hedley identified two landings and described the harbour as "pretty as well as safe". During September 1895 Cossack residents requested the District Surveyor to survey the headland at Port Hedland and requested the Government to build a jetty. Goldsworthy mining discovered iron ore in the Pilbara in the late 1950s and built the towns of Goldsworthy and later Shaygap as mine sites. A rail line was then built to Port Hedland where dredging was undertaken to deepen and widen the port's channel and a wharf was built opposite the township of Port Hedland on Finicane Island. Shipment of ore began on 27 May 1966 when the Harved S Muddsailed from Port hedland to Japan with 24,900 tonnes of ore. In 1967 iron ore was discovered at Mt Whaleback and a mining venture was undertaken that included the establishment of a new Town, Newman, 426 km of rail from the mine to the port and the development of processing equipment at both Newman and Port Hedland. In 1986, at a cost of $87 million, the existing channel was dredged to allow the port to increase the tonnage of those ships able to enter the port. WIKIPEDIA DON PUGH

The transition from coal mining and fossil fuel dependence must be made to future proof the probable collapse of the Great Barrier Reef and severe damage to the Artesian Basin but also to safeguard the tourism, fishing and agricultural industries if no changes are made soon. The risk of losing complex water ecosystems, fresh water supply for thousands of rural properties, and threatening the existence of the country’s greatest natural treasure, the Great Barrier Reef would surely far outweigh the benefit of a small increase of coal mining royalties and jobs that the state of Queensland will receive through Adani’s coal mining.

Kalgoorlie Gold Mining WA 1930's -- 1950's
OLD FOOTAGE PHOTOSKalgoorlie, alternatively known as Kalgoorlie-Boulder, is a city in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, and is located 595 kilometres (370 mi) east-northeast of Perth, the state capital. The city was founded in 1893 during the Yilgarn-Goldfields gold rush, and is located close to the so-called "Golden Mile". It has a population of 28,246,[1] making it the largest urban centre in the Goldfields-Esperance region and the fifth-largest in Western Australia. The mining of gold, along with other metals such as nickel, has been a major industry in Kalgoorlie ever since, and today employs about one-quarter of Kalgoorlie's workforce and generates a significant proportion of its income. The concentrated area of large gold mines surrounding the original Hannan find is often referred to as the Golden Mile, and is considered by some to be the richest square mile of earth on the planet. The town's population was about 30,000 people in 1903 and began to grow into nearby Boulder. Kalgoorlie after the 1934 race riotsThe narrow gauge Government railway line reached Kalgoorlie in 1896, and the main named railway service from Perth was the overnight sleeper train The Westland which ran until the 1970s. In 1917, a standard gauge railway line was completed, connecting Kalgoorlie to the city of Port Augusta, South Australia across 2,000 kilometres (1,243 mi) of desert, and consequently the rest of the eastern states. The standardisation of the railway connecting Perth (which changed route from the narrow gauge route) in 1968 completed the Sydney-Perth railway, making it possible for rail travel from Perth to Sydney—and the Indian Pacific rail service commenced soon after. During the 1890s, the Goldfields area boomed as a whole, with an area population exceeding 200,000, mainly prospectors. The area gained a notorious reputation for being a wild west with bandits and prostitutes. This rapid increase in population led to a proposed new state of Auralia but with the sudden diaspora after the Gold Rush led to plans falling through. Places, famous or infamous, that Kalgoorlie is noted for include its water pipeline, designed by C. Y. O'Connor, which brings in fresh water from Mundaring Weir near Perth; its Hay Street brothels (the street itself was apparently named after Hay Street, Perth); its two-up school; the goldfields railway loopline; the Kalgoorlie Town Hall; the Paddy Hannan statue/drinking fountain; the Super Pit; and Mt Charlotte lookout. Its main street is Hannan Street, named after the town's founder. One of the infamous brothels also serves as a museum and is a major national attraction. Kalgoorlie and the surrounding district was serviced by an extensive collection of suburban railways and tramways, providing for both passenger and freight traffic.[3] wikkipediia caravan ttrip 2008 don pugh

Widgiemooltha WA Western Australia PAST AND TODAY
WIDGIEMOOLTHA DON PUGH CARAVAN TRIP 2008 Latitude 31° 30' S Longitude 121° 35' E Widgiemooltha is an abandoned goldfields townsite located 631 km east of Perth and 41 km south of Kambalda. Gold was discovered in this area in the mid 1890's, and by 1897 the government had decided to survey and gazette a townsite here. Following the survey the townsite was gazetted as "Widgemooltha" in December 1897. The spelling was amended to the current form, Widgiemooltha, in 1944. There was much doubt about the spelling of this Aboriginal name, which was derived from a nearby hill and rockhole. It was spelt variously as "Wagiemoola", "Woodgiemoola", "Wedgemula" or "Widgemooltha" in early documents from 1893. The meaning of this name appears to be related to the beak of an emu.

Outback, Northern Territory, Australia, Oceania
The Outback is the vast, remote, arid area of Australia. The term "the outback" is generally used to refer to locations that are comparatively more remote than those areas named "the bush" which, colloquially, can refer to any lands outside the main urban areas. Early European exploration of inland Australia was sporadic. More focus was on the more accessible and fertile coastal areas. The first party to successfully cross the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney was led by Gregory Blaxland in 1813, 25 years after the colony was established. People starting with John Oxley in 1817, 1818 and 1821, followed by Charles Sturt in 1829–1830 attempted to follow the westward-flowing rivers to find an "inland sea", but these were found to all flow into the Murray River and Darling River which turn south. Over the period 1858 to 1861, John McDouall Stuart led six expeditions north from Adelaide into the outback, culminating in successfully reaching the north coast of Australia and returning, without the loss of any of the party's members' lives. This contrasts with the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition in 1860–61 which was much better funded, but resulted in the deaths of three of the members of the transcontinental party. The Overland Telegraph line was constructed in the 1870s along the route identified by Stuart. Exploration of the outback continued in the 1950s when Len Beadell explored, surveyed and built many roads in support of the nuclear weapons tests at Emu Field and Maralinga and rocket testing on the Woomera Prohibited Area. Mineral exploration continues as new mineral deposits are identified and developed. While the early explorers used horses to cross the outback, the first woman to make the journey riding a horse was Anna Hingley, who rode from Broome to Cairns in 2006. Other than agriculture and tourism, the main economic activity in this vast and sparsely settled area is mining. Owing to the complete absence of mountain building and glaciation since the Permian (in many areas since the Cambrian) ages, the outback is extremely rich in iron, aluminium, manganese and uranium ores, and also contains major deposits of gold, nickel, iron, lead and zinc ores. Because of its size, the value of grazing and mining is considerable. Major mines and mining areas in the outback include opals at Coober Pedy, Lightning Ridge and White Cliffs, metals at Broken Hill, Tennant Creek, Olympic Dam and the remote Challenger Mine. Oil and gas are extracted in the Cooper Basin around Moomba. In Western Australia the Argyle diamond mine in the Kimberley (Western Australia) is the world's biggest producer of natural diamonds and contributes approximately one-third of the world's natural supply. The Pilbara region's economy is dominated by mining and petroleum industries. Most of Australia's iron ore is also mined in the Pilbara and it also has one of the world's major manganese mines. Because of the low and erratic rainfall over most of the outback, combined with soils which are usually not very fertile, inland Australia is relatively sparsely settled. More than 90 percent of Australians live in urban areas on the coast. However the outback and the history of its exploration and settlement provides Australians with a culturally valued backdrop, and stories of swagmen, squatters, and bushrangers are central to the national ethos. The song "Waltzing Matilda", which is about a swagman and squatters, is probably Australia's best internationally known and best-loved song. Aboriginal communities in outback regions have not been displaced as they have been in areas of intensive agriculture and large cities, in coastal areas. For this reason a significant proportion of Australia's indigenous population lives in the Outback, in areas such as the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands in northern South Australia. The total population of the Outback in Australia declined from 700,000 in 1996 to 690,000 in 2006. Largest decline was noted in Outback NT, while Kimberley and Pilbara showed population increase during the same period. The sex ratio is 1040 males for 1000 females and 17% of the total population is indigenous. The Royal Flying Doctor Service started service in 1928 and helps people who live in the outback of Australia. In former times, serious injuries or illnesses often meant death due to the lack of proper medical facilities and trained personnel. In most outback communities, the number of children is too small for a conventional school to operate. Children are educated at home by the School of the Air. Originally the teachers communicated with the children via radio, but now satellite telecommunication is used instead.

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."

Mining and the Social Sciences - Panel Discussion
The social sciences have an important role to play in understanding mining’s impact on people and place, and its effect on different types of social systems and processes. The panel will provide a range of perspectives about how social scientists can shine a light on the mining industry, and its activities and impacts. By developing a deeper understanding of the mining industry’s broad reach, and by engaging diverse stakeholder groups, new perspectives about mining’s role in society can emerge. This event is hosted by SMI's Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining, the Centre's Director Professor Deanna Kemp will facilitate the discussion.
