Anthony Turton is a specialist in the assessment and mitigation of risk under conditions of uncertainty where incomplete or contested data hampers decision-making, with a track record in South African history that goes back to the ending of the armed struggle by the creation of CODESA. In this talk, Tony puts forward the concept of 'closure mining' as a fundamental shift in approach to mining. Closure mining deals with externalities and social and environmental concerns, towards a more productive, efficient, and responsible industry. Released during a time of violent clashes between mine workers and platinum mining companies, this is a pivotal time for South Africa to take Anthony's idea seriously.

Researchers at the Wits University have launched a report titled 'Demanding the Impossible? Platinum Mining Profits and Wage Demands in Context'. Andrew Bowman, a visiting researcher on political studies from the University of Manchester and Gilad Isaacs, a PhD candidate from the University of London and part-time researcher at Wits University, worked together on the report. The researchers say the public debate on the strike has been narrowed by the foregrounding of certain sets of financial data to the exclusion of others and the report seeks to broaden the debate. The researchers believe that the strike highlights longer term policy issues that require urgent attention. In this video, Gilad Isaacs talks about some of these issues and Bishop Joe Seoka of the South African Council of Churches calls for sanctions against mining companies for failing to look after their employees.

Asteroid mining will be a major engine for future economic growth, says author and entrepreneur Steven Kotler. His latest book is Tomorrowland: Our Journey from Science Fiction to Science Fact (http://goo.gl/eLjsSX). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/steven-kotler-on-asteroid-mining Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - We had the idea that we could mine asteroids for over a hundred years. Late 1800s is when we first started thinking about this in the first place. And today we have I think it’s three or four different asteroid mining companies. It’s no longer an idea. We actually have companies that are actively pursuing this. And we also have really serious economic reasons for pursuing this, right. A lot of the metals, rare earth metals that we need to make all of our electronic gear are very scarce on Earth and totally plentiful in space. Gold, platinum – platinum is a fantastic conductor. We don’t build technology around it very much because all the platinum on Earth would essentially fit into the back of a flatbed truck, right. There’s a very limited supply. It is everywhere in space. So if you look at the history of the world it’s always been the search for resources that has opened up new frontiers. It’s been the economic driver that has opened up new frontiers. Well that economic driver is there in space. And you have to think about it this way. If you go back 20 years ago, right, when Shell discovered the first North Sea oil deposit. It was beneath 5,000 feet of water, 10,000 feet of rock and they had to operate in this very cold, very hostile, very far away environment robotically to get at oil. It was resource extraction. North Sea oil platforms are very, very expensive but we learned. Shell was willing to take a very, very expensive bet to operate robotically in a very hostile distant far and away environment to get at resources, right. The same budget sort of applies to asteroid mining and it’s the same exact situation. It is a very far away, very remote robotically extracted resource if we’re mining asteroids. So we’ve done this before. We’ve been down this exact road and for the first time in history we have the technology, right. We’ve already been in three different missions already. Two out of NASA and one out of Japan that have caught up to asteroids, right. We even had one that Hayabusa probe scratched the surface and brought back some dust. It’s low grade first step mining, right. So we already have proof of concept. We know it can be done. We know where the resources are out there. And there are companies pursuing it. Will it happen in the next 20-25 years? The next 10 years? The next 20-25 or the next 50 years? I don’t know. If you talk to the people running the companies they’ll put a 10 to 20 year time horizon on it. I think it’s a little farther out. But again we’re going to see it sometime in the next 50 years. And you have to understand what this means. You know they did a study where they looked at the amount of gold contained in just a typical middle of the road asteroid, not even like a metallic asteroid. Just a typical middle of middle of the road one and it was double what Fort Knox held at the height of Fort Knox, right. So there’s enough gold in one asteroid to kind of devalue every currency market on Earth. So that’s what’s coming and it’s really, really interesting, right. It sounds like this crazy science fiction technology but it’s going to have real world economic impact on this planet within the century. And so we have to kind of be prepared for it at the same time that we’re thinking about it’s still science fiction.

The mining industry continues to adapt to a lower metal price environment, and one executive says there may be interesting developments moving forward. 'Silver is interesting because there’s a certain level of supply that’s going to keep coming onto the market no matter where prices are,' Courtney Lynn, treasurer for Coeur Mining, told Kitco News at the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) conference in Vienna. Lynn noted that not many producers were present at the annual industry conference. 'It would be nice to have better representation from producers and I am quite surprised there aren’t more of us here.’ Commenting on hedging, Lynn said mining companies shouldn’t use this tactic to improve returns. ‘I think there is a misconception that you can lock in a margin...labor is a large component of our cost and even though diesel and other commodity inputs go down, it’s very hard to cut people’s wages,’ she explained. ‘Costs tend to be sticky on the way down and not so sticky on the way up...the other thing if you don’t have good assets, you can’t financially engineer your way to good assets.’ Kitco News, October 28, 2015.

Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) Until recently, the world population has been growing faster than exponentially. Although the growth rate has slowed somewhat, there are about 80 million more people each year and about 3 billion more will be added by 2050 (a 50% increase). Population will probably increase more beyond that. Such growth is unprecedented and we cannot predict its long-term effects. The environmental impact of this population increase is bound to be astronomic. Large populations engender two problems: over-consumption in the rich countries which leads to environmental misery, and under-consumption in the poor countries which leads to human misery. People living in abject poverty ($1 per day) don't limit their fertility. Factory jobs in poor countries pay double that, ~$2 per day. For population to stabilize, income must rise. If population is to increase by 50%, income needs to double -- we are looking at a tripling of the world economy. The environment is currently overstressed. Can it survive a tripling of the economy? 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction 13:47 - Chapter 2. Population Explosion 28:44 - Chapter 3. Population and Over Consumption 38:58 - Chapter 4.

To subscribe to our newsletter and get notified of new shows, please visit http://palisaderadio.com Keith says the reason the resource markets are lagging is due to institutions not entering the metal market. Until there is a crack in the major markets, we will not see institutional money flow into the mining equities. The market is quite similar to the year 2000 when it was flat and then took off. History is repeating itself. We need some sort of correction and sane-ness to enter the market. He feels the coming bull market will be quite impressive. He thinks the mining sector over the next decade will become a much more efficient business. Miners will be in a rising metal price environment. He’s not concerned about being wrong in the short term to be right in the long run. When the market turns, it will turn quickly. The current silver price is almost a joke. We’ve seen lead, zinc, nickel, lithium, and cobalt make significant price rises but gold and silver remain flat. Silver is ignored as a cheap gold substitute, and that is a wrong assumption. Silver is a strategic metal needed in all sorts of applications, and modern society would not function without it. It’s shocking that this hasn’t been noticed by more people as a result production continues to decline. Platinum metals are not that interesting to Keith as they are small, illiquid markets. They are quite volatile, and platinum jewelry looks much like silver so why not just buy silver. Now that the world is moving toward electric vehicles he thinks the reasons for owning platinum has declined.

In my previous article on illegal mining in Ghana, I focused on how foreigners especially Chinese have “bought” the local leaders to rob our nation of its resources and pride. Within some weeks after I wrote on the topic, the security officials and the government took a stern look at the practice and caused the arrest and deportation of many foreigners who were involved in mining without a license to operate. During a visit to commission a water project at Kyebi last year, President Mahama remarked, “…excuse me to say, Akyem Abuakwa has turned into the headquarters of galamsey in Ghana. I came here by air and if you see how the land is being destroyed, it saddens me.” The President later apologized on this statement. I strongly believe the Presidents apology was not necessary as it was and is a statement of fact. As a New Year dawns 2016, I decided to visit some of the towns and Villages specifically Afiasa and Apapam in the Kyebi Area in the Eastern region of Ghana. My expectations had been a reduced case of the destructions and menace of illegal mining activities in the region. It turned out ironically that “aluta continua”. Local men and women were busily excavating land and destroying forest and cocoa farms in search of Gold dusts. I do not intend to discuss the effects of illegal mining in this article but to urge us all to take responsibility of our environment because our natural resources is all we have. Gold and all minerals in Ghana are precious and need to be mined to support our weakly economic. Of course we cannot sit on Gold and diamond to east sand. Note that in Ghana we are blessed with the prospect of minerals on every part of our land. The question however is that shall we overcome the cost of extraction and damage to the environment on mining in particular place in a particular manner? Simply, is such illegal mining profitable when you consider the damage to the environment? Kofi Bonsu (actual name withheld) who works as a supervisor for a sponsor to a Galamsey operations remarked “Are you thinking of filling back land and planting trees? No way have you just taken your Gold and leave.” It is clear that there is no such thing as mining license and EPA Permits in their dictionary. This is how the Galamsey operations affect our natural resources. The Minerals Commission offers license to qualified and responsible mining companies in order to control and guide the operations of mining in the country. It also ensures compliance with Ghana's Mining and Mineral Laws and Regulation through effective monitoring. It is clear that the Mineral Commission is defunct in monitoring the activities of mining operations in Ghana. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Security Services of the country have their due responsibilities. What ought we to do as individuals. We all have a duty to protect our natural resources. If you have any complaints or suspicious of any mining activity undertaken in your community, Immediately inform the authorities or the Mineral Commissions on hotlines: 030 2771318, 030 2779823.

Our waste is worth money. Recovering it has started up a new global industry worth billions. It is called Urban Mining and it appears to be the solution for many of our environmental problems and our energy needs. And it is hot. A ton of broken mobile phones, computers or other electronic waste contains sixty times the amount of gold a ton of gold ore has. Moreover, it is easier to get at. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of total world demand for rare metals can be covered by urban mining and this is only the beginning. Urban Mining has a different, almost hilarious consequence: for years we have dumped our electronic waste in developing countries, with our eyes closed. There, it was to be recycled. But in Africa only one quarter of the gold, platinum and coltan is recovered whereas the newest technology in Belgium recovers almost 99 percent. So somewhere there’s a profit to be made. The NGO ‘Closing the Loop’ is buying up dead mobile phones and computer parts that we have dumped in developing countries making our waste a desirable sales item over there.

He says the company expects to employ locals to work on the project at Red Hill. Jones explains that last year, they discovered quite a significant zone of platinum, copper and nickel mineralisation. He says now they are in a position to go back and do some follow up drilling. He says the resources sector had a very tough few years and notes that they have been fortunate enough to attract funding from Squadron Resources. He explains that Squadron Resources is the mining site of Andrew Forrest's philanthropic and commercial interest with his wife and the Minderoo group. He says he has a background in sort of targeting for large deposits and notes that he works for one of the major mining companies of Australia for many years. He says their projects in Dubbo and Broken Hill, attracted the attention of Andrew Forrest's group that is why there is an investment. He confirms that there is an initial investment of $3M and the other $4.3 will be subject to good results as they forward over the next years. He says they are going to spend $500,000 in the region and says they plan to employ locals. They talk about the timeline of the project.

The Bench Marks Foundation has released another damning report into the South African mining community. It has been focusing on Corporate Social Responsibility in the mining environment - and the latest report concerns the coal industry. The Foundation says that workers face a hostile environment with unsafe and dreadful conditions. It says mining companies generally are flouting environmental, labour and social laws frequently and openly. And coal miners concentrated in Mpumalanga are no different. South Africa is haveily reliant on coal to produce electricity. It is also a significant participant in global coal markets with Anglo and BHP Billiton dominating.

We are excited to post this video and show you all our progress on processing printed circuit boards (PCB's) for gold, copper and other metals with our hammer mill and shaker table. We have the ability to take whole boards, crush them, and run them on our shaker table. We are still in the experimental stage but we have high hopes to have a complete system ready to sell soon. I should clarify that we can't recover all the gold from the boards, but at the end of the video we do have free metallic gold in the gold pan. Our goal is to take whole boards and concentrate out the valuables (metals) from the non-values (fiberglass, plastic, etc). The free gold can easily be removed, melted, and sold directly to a gold buyer, leaving the concentrates, which are much more valuable that the boards themselves. The remaining gold is plated onto other metals. This cannot be mechanically separated, but using the hammer mill and shaker table it can be concentrated into a salable product. The #2 and #3 hole outputs can be sold to a refiner and let them deal with all the chemicals and refining process. For most people its too complicated, dangerous, expensive, etc. to separate out the different metals in the concentrates. As a side note the free gold per pound recovered from the ~20 pounds of boards equates to 1 troy ounce per ton of boards. This would be considered very high grade gold ore for any miner. The PCB's also have loads of copper, tin, lead, plated gold, etc that is added value on top of that 1 oz/ton free gold recovered. Stay tuned and please email or call if you are interested in any of our equipment.

You care about the future of our planet. You traded in your gas-guzzling SUV for a Prius and your Keurig for a Coffee Maker -- and if enough of us do that, we’ll save the Earth, right? Well, we are dangerously close to collapsing our own ecosystem and we are running out of time. In this persuasive talk, James Orsulak argues that the only way to really make a difference is to look up. James Orsulak serves as the Director of Business Development at Planetary Resources, an asteroid mining company that has embarked on the world’s first commercial deep space exploration. The company focuses on technologies such as rocket propellant, water for life support functions, and construction materials sourced from asteroids. Previously, James spent a decade developing industrial-scale fueling stations on Earth. He is an avid gardener who lives in Denver with his amazing wife, 2-year-old twins and a rambunctious Goldendoodle named Waffles.

http://goldstocktrades.com/blog I want to highlight a new company which could be our next triple or home run. I recently visited the property located within an hour drive of Medellin, Colombia. In 3 years, Red Eagle (RD.V or RDEMF) has gone from a discovery hole all the way to Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) which is on the verge of being published this Fall. Despite investing $55 million to date and advancing the project to the BFS stage the company currently has a market cap of around $20 million. The last financing was in March 2014 at $.33 and the one prior in October 2012 was $12 million at $.55. It is important to note that Red Eagle raised $15 million in its IPO at $1.25 back in June 2011. New investors such as ourselves get over 45,000m of drilling, two resource estimates, a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) and Environmental Impact Assessment and soon to be published BFS for literally pennies on a dollar. With only 74 million shares outstanding, a current cash position of $7 million, a key 19.9% shareholder like Liberty Metals and Mining and top notch management which owns around 12% I believe Red Eagle could possibly triple from current levels as the BFS is published and receiving the final mining permits. I recently initiated a position and would try to get in below $.33 which was the last financing price. Red Eagle's 320 sq. km Santa Rosa Project should be a simple project to get into production with a lower risk profile and high IRR of around 47%. The metallurgy is simple with 93% recoveries. Cash costs should be around $620 per ounce of gold. The management team is five star led by CEO Ian Slater a managing partner at Arthur Andersen and Ernst and Young's mining division. The COO is Bob Bell who has built and developed numerous mines including most recently Dundee's Chelopech Mine. The Board of Directors is impressive with heavy hitters such as Ken Cunningham, Rob Pease and Jeff Mason. The project is located only an hour and half drive from Medellin, Colombia. The PEA showed low capital costs estimated at $84 million. At $1300 gold, the post tax NPV is $113 million with a high IRR of 37% and a payback of 1.4 years. In conclusion, I believe Red Eagle is a bargain opportunity under a $25 million market cap for the following reasons. 1)Asset is technically simple. Simple type of mining and excellent metallurgy. Company is advancing from PEA to BFS due to the simplicity of the project. Near term production in 2016. 2)Economic with low cash costs of around $620 per ounce. High pre tax IRR of 47%. 3)Low permitting, mining and financial risk. Colombia is ranked #2 jurisdiction in South America right after Chile according to the Fraser Institute. Security has improved dramatically over the past decade. 4)Long term strategic shareholder Liberty Metals which owns 19.9% minimizes financial risk. Management has skin in the game and own around 12%. It is important to remember in the previous bull market cycles in junior gold miners we saw some hefty premiums paid for companies like Ventana, Galway and Calvista. Currently the majors such as Anglogold, Tech, Iamgold, Agnico Eagle among others are interested in high quality projects. I believe Red Eagle's Santa Rosa may be one of the top ones on the list for a major or a mid tier producer looking for a high quality, simple and economic asset. Ian has been in the mining business for over 20 years, is a chartered accountant and was the Managing Partner at Ernst and Young's and Arthur Andersen's Mining Division. Disclosure: Author owns Red Eagle and the company is a website sponsor.

In this the third episode of the Goldnomics podcast we ask the question; “Is the gold price going to $10,000?”. GoldCore CEO Stephen Flood and GoldCore's Research Director and world renowned precious metals commentator Mark O'Byrne in discussion with Dave Russell. We discuss what will drive gold to new record highs over the coming months and years. We look at the dangerous developments in monetary policy and the geo-political tensions that make an allocation to gold a prudent move for your portfolio. As the “Everything Bubble” continues fuelled by the mainstream media and the effects of quantitative easing does this mean higher gold prices are on the horizon? Cutting through the financial markets jargon and looking at the risks to your investment portfolio that aren't spoken about in the mainstream media. Listen to the full episode or skip directly to one of the following discussion points: 1:07 Is the gold price going to $10,000 and when? 3:58 The 5 major driving factors that will be the key to driving gold prices higher. 4:39 What impact and influence will monetary policy play? 5:50 Why the debt to GDP ratio is crippling economies. 6:22 The dangerous trend that began with LTCM being bailed out by Wall Street. 6:55 Why you are now the lender of last resort for the banking system! 7:18 The little known fact that we are now in an era of bail-ins rather than bail-outs and what this means for your savings. 8:28 How bail-ins will impact small businesses and everyone that they employ. 10:05 Why “money in the bank”, is no longer “as safe as houses”! 10:39 How the old wisdom of “Cash is King”, can quickly become; “Cash is Trash”! 12:08 How governments have snuck in the highly controversial bail-in laws under the radar. 14:01 Why SMEs need to start to manage their exposure to banks just like large corporations. 14:58 Why high-net-worth individuals and those that manage family money need to manage their exposure to the banking system, just like large corporations. 15:05 Why higher interest rates are good for gold! 16:25 The interest rate environment that is not good for gold. 18:18 The ongoing effect of quantitative easing and how it’s artificially inflating all asset prices. 19:50 Why gold is no longer being pushed higher by quantitative easing. 20:30 The compelling research from PWC that proves the wisdom of gold’s inclusion in your portfolio. 22:29 Inflation, deflation and stagflation, where we are now and what it means for the gold price. 24:44 The inflationary and deflationary elastic band pressures in the economy. 26:58 Geopolitical tensions are rising and sabre-rattling is getting louder. Life in the Trump era and the breaking down of old alliances. 31:10 How to deflect attention – The Goebbels strategy! 33:45 The fault with the media and how they have let us down. 34:37 James Steele of HSBC and the performance of gold during times of uncertainty and war. 35:58 A new multipolar world emerging. 37:13 Why the basic fundamentals of supply and demand are very strong for gold. 37:35 Elon Musk mining gold on mars! 39:18 Have the Germans copped on to this risk to the Euro that other countries are blindly ignoring. 40:35 What underlies jewellery demand in Asia and the Middle East. It’s not what you think. 42:05 The increase in demand for segregated allocated gold and viewing gold as money. 43:58 The continuing Central Bank demand for gold, is it set to increase further. 44:50 These governments are encouraging their citizens to buy gold now! 46:35 Why we shouldn’t believe what these people say but instead watch what they do. 47:10 The breaking down of trust between nations can be seen by this one move. 47:30 What will happen to keep the gold price from appreciating anytime soon. 51:30 All gold is not equal.

The total supply of new silver each year is close to 1 billion ounces. Annual gold supply is around 120 million ounces. This makes it seem like the silver market is 8 times bigger than gold. But just the opposite is true, because of the huge difference in their price. Silver’s lower price makes the value of annual supply much smaller than gold’s. At current prices, annual gold supply is almost 9 times bigger than silver. Silver isn’t just smaller than gold. Look how it compares to the market cap of some popular stocks.Each of these individual companies has a higher valuation than the entire annual supply of silver! Disney is 10 times bigger. Apple is 42 times bigger. This explains why silver is more volatile than gold: it takes only a relatively small amount of money to have a greater impact on its price, more than gold or most any other asset class. As a result, silver will rise more than gold on up days, and fall more than gold on down days. Investors refer to these price changes as volatility. There are exceptions, of course, but that’s what happens most of the time. This leads to our first… Investor Implication: You must be emotionally prepared for silver’s higher volatility. It won’t do any good to buy the metal if you’ll panic and sell at the first big drop. In fact, as an investor, this volatility can be your friend. Historically, silver has fallen more than gold in bear markets, but risen more than gold in bull markets. About 12% of gold supply goes to industrial uses. But due to silver’s unique characteristics, a whopping 56% of its supply is used in industry. Silver has so many applications that believe it or not, you don’t go one day without using a product that contains it. From electronics and medical applications, to batteries and solar panels, silver is everywhere, whether you see it or not. As Mike Maloney says in his book, “Of all the elements, silver is the indispensable metal. It is the most electronically conducive, thermally conductive, and reflective. Modern life, as we know it, would not exist without silver.” Why is this important? Because the state of the global economy can have a greater impact on silver demand than gold. Silver is thus more susceptible to economic booms and busts. Investor Implication: Demand for industrial uses of silver is high in a strong economy, and weaker in a recession or deflation. But that’s only part of the story… unlike gold, most industrial silver is consumed and then thrown away (and in some cases destroyed during the fabrication process). It’s just not economic to recover every tiny flake or grain of silver from most products. As a result, when the product gets discarded, that silver is gone for good. This limits the amount of silver that can return to the market through recycling. Investor Implication: Unlike gold, millions of ounces of silver are lost every year. New supply must keep up in order to meet demand. But won’t the silver price fall in a recession or any serious economic slowdown? Fair question. Let’s take a quick look at a one of the worst economic periods in modern history and see what happened… It’s hard to imagine a worse economic environment than the 1970s, especially the second half of that decade: two recessions, a 14% inflation rate, high unemployment, an energy crisis, the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, and ongoing cold war tensions. As for silver itself, industrial demand fell, and global supply rose. Does this sound like an environment where the silver price would rise?

Currently they are leaching Cell One with water only as Cyanide breaks down with water and sunlight. Ore on Cell One is from the Goldspring Phase One era when ore was crushed to 5-minus to 4-1/2-minus. Minus Sizing: means crushed gravel will pass through heavy metal screens with square openings/apertures of 5 inches and 4-1/2 inches - only ore less than 5 inches will pass through the "5-Minus" square holes. Larger ore will move on the shaking screens to a trough that recirculates the larger ore back to the crusher to be further reduced until it can pass through the 5 inch or 4-1/2 inch screens. Ore that large may have had a low efficiency of leaching, hence gold may still be in the ore. If the ore is crushed to a smaller "Minus" determined by McClellan, then cyanide leaching may claim more of the gold left behind. Studies are being conducted to determine if it is worthwhile to reprocess the large size ore. It had an average content of 0.04 OPT Gold (Au). Approximately in 1-2 months they will know for sure what to do with ore on Cell One. Sprinkling with Barren Solution is with either Misters or Drippers. Drippers are better for the Hartford Complex as they provide a more consistent coverage. Visitor perceives Cell One as a large heap. A 1000th of a percent - an approximate ratio of cyanide to water. Cyanide does not leach free gold, therefore a "Cut-Off Grade" determines whether ore is sent to grinding mill or leach pad.

No country in the world produces all of the mineral resources necessary for modern society. International trade plays a critical role in providing these raw materials, forming a global network of production, export, import, and use. This network must continuously adapt to national and international developments in science, technology, politics, and economics. As a result, information on the global flow of raw materials plays a fundamental role in improving national and international resilience to potential supply disruptions and market changes. This is the first presentation from the AGI Critical Issues webinar, "Tracking the Global Supply of Critical Materials". This webinar focuses on U.S. and European Union (EU) efforts to gather information and develop tools that can be used to ensure a secure national and global supply of mineral resources; identify and quantify vulnerabilities in this supply; and stimulate national and international co-operation, education and outreach, and innovation in the development, recycling, and substitution of key mineral resources. Our speakers include: Nedal Nassar, Chief, Materials Flow Analysis Section, National Minerals Information Center, U.S. Geological Survey Vitor Correia, President, European Federation of Geologists, and co-ordinator of the EU’s INTRAW project This webinar is co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union, American Institute of Professional Geologists, Australian Institute of Geoscientists, European Federation of Geologists, Geological Society of Africa, Geological Society of London, Geoscience Information Society, Mineralogical Society of America, and Society of Economic Geologists, with media partnership from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Bitcoin mining: BTC and crypto mining ‘uses DOUBLE the energy required to mine GOLD’ EXCLUSIVE: Bitcoin (BTC) mining requires double the energy to mine digital tokens than its equivalent worth in rare metals like gold or even platinum, an expert has calculated. Bitcoin was born ten years ago while the world teetered toward financial collapse as a result of the 2007 and 2008 financial crisis. A mysterious character called Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 created a peer-to-peer system of electronic cash called bitcoin with a purported threefold aim. These were to wrest control away from those who created the financial crash; to create the first-ever money with a built-in monetary policy; and that it would be completely transparent. A decade later, cryptocurrencies like bitcoin have experienced all manner of unforeseen turmoil, from booms and busts to bubbles. One of the most shocking aspects to the nascent industry has however only recently been reported – the enormous amounts of energy cryptocurrencies like bitcoin require to be mined. Researchers at the Oak Ridge Institute have calculated one dollar’s worth of bitcoin requires about 17 megajoules (MJ) to mine, as compared with 4, 5 and 7 MJ for copper, gold and platinum. Dr Max Krause, a co-author of the report – the first to quantify the energy cost per dollar benefit – said: “I added the comparison with mining because I want to give people unfamiliar with crypto mining process a metaphorical comparison or conceptual frame of reference." The bitcoin expert stressed BTC mining is on an ”unsustainable path" when considering the amount of energy used. Bitcoin mining is a process of performing computer calculations that effectively validate transactions between different people across the world. For the work these third parties are doing for validating these transactions, they are rewarded with newly created bitcoins. Companies are also financially rewarded for taking the time and energy for processing these transactions. Dr Krause explained exactly why such incredible amounts of energy are needed to mine cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, by contrasting them with more traditional forms of cash. He said: “The calculation is designed to be energy-intensive or complicated so that it secure. “It is supposed to be something considered to be 'trust-less' – meaning we trust the banking system to be there tomorrow. “This is designed to be un-hackable – you don’t know the people who are processing these transactions, so it is called a trust-less system because the system is so secure. “These secure calculations have to be fairly complex and therefore it requires a lot of computing power to repeatedly perform these calculations. "The reason it consumes so much energy is really because there is a profit incentive to process these transactions, so companies are rewarded with coins for doing this work and the coins are quite valuable. “And when you have both quite complex calculations and then a large profit, or incentive, an arms race of different mining groups creates these large energy requirements.” Bitcoin may be virtual but the profit is very real and Dr Krause said the numbers "can be substantial". For every completed block, miners are rewarded with 12.5 BTC tokens, which equates to about £XX ($100,000). This happens roughly as often as every 10 minutes. Dr Krause said: “So the money that changes hands at a macro level is quite large. “The potential is huge – companies could be making millions of dollars a year.” But the environmental impact of all of this energy consumption is beginning to be felt. The carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions alone produce a significant amount of greenhouse gas for a fairly nascent industry. According to Dr Krause, cryptocurrency mining now contributes to about 15 million tonnes of CO2. And it appears unlikely that improved efficiencies in mining technology will make a difference any time soon. The BTC expert said: “When we calculated our estimates, we assumed more efficient miners in 2017 to 2018 than 2016. “But mining activity is far outpacing the improved efficiency of the mining equipment. “Yes, the mining equipment is becoming more efficient, but the phase-out of technology is a little slower. “The amount of interest in mining is increasing so much faster than they can create new, more efficient products. The postdoctoral researcher at the US Environmental Protection Agency refused to condemn cryptocurrency mining but he does believe the amount of energy we consume is something we should all be mindful of. He said: “We need to realise that digital products or processes are no different from physical one and can also consume a significant amount of energy. “As we move to this new digital age where everything is connected and online we should keep in mind that we are not using less energy, but much more energy.”

WE DO NOT OWN THE MATERIAL EXCLUSIVELY, BUT HAVE A LICENSE CONTRACT FOR INTERNET STREAMING. If unavailable in your territory, or if you are interested in other license requests (feature movie, television, documentary, commercial...), please contact Javafilms: [email protected] Story The African continent is rapidly developing itself economically. The only bottleneck in this process are readily available resources. Besides money these mainly consist of poor infrastructure and availability of energy, especially electricity. Economically booming countries like for example Uganda still have a lot to gain when a steady supply of power is provided. Nowadays in Uganda the power plants can only cater for roughly 30% of the countries demand and even new hydraulic power projects in the Nile will not solve this problem. Nuclear power therefor seems the most cost effective solution for most of the African nations including Uganda. Western companies such as the French Areva fiercely lobby for more power plants on the continent. But is Atomic Energy the best solution for unstable regimes? And what does Atomic Energy and the mining of uranium mean for the wellbeing and safety of the local population and the environment? Social Interest Ever since the first nuclear reactor was build in Africa in Congo in 1958 there have been safety concerns, cause within the whole process of the production of nuclear energy a lot of things can go wrong, willingly and unwillingly, with possible devastating consequences for people and environment. For instance in 2007 the head of the Congolese research institute was arrested for illegally selling nuclear fuel rods. Also in Niger the highway where the mined uranium is transported on runs through rebel territory associated with Al-Qaida. The war in neighbouring Mali makes this transport even more risky. Besides the risks of fuel rods ending up in the wrong hands the mining of uranium itself poses danger to people and environment as well. Legal and illegal mining operations destroy ecosystems and leave the miners with radiation poisoning . Historical and Political Relevance Nuclear power, the right to enrich uranium and develop the technology to exploit its energy, has always been a difficult point in international politics. In the Cold War the threat mainly came from the war talk and power displays of archenemies the United States and the Soviet Union which both had a gigantic nuclear arsenal. As the cold war ended the threat of a nuclear war declined. However the nuclear disaster in a power plant in Chernobyl a few years earlier proved that the benefits of nuclear power also pose a big potential threat in case of incidents. However, this incident did not stop more countries from starting a nuclear program with a wide range of experiments While in the last decade the interest of the West in Nuclear power seems to decline some new players on the nuclear market, with questionable regimes like Iran and North Korea , are causing much international debate about the right to develop nuclear power. The rapidly developing African continent is in serious need of energy and has always been rich in raw resources to produce energy and is now slowly developing the knowledge to exploit them. The African continent may well be on the verge of a nuclear revolution so the political discussion about the right to use nuclear energy is more relevant than ever. Because not only questionable regimes can pose a potential threat, also war and especially terrorism are extremely dangerous, since it takes a single rocket fired by a single person to blow up a nuclear power plant.

Investec analyst Jeremy Wrathall talks to Proactive about some of the issues facing Sirius Minerals PLC's (LON:SXX) ambitious North Yorkshire Polyhalite project. Undoubtedly, a large and challenging project, the firm has thought things through "incredibly" carefully, says the analyst. This week the mining group said talks on securing construction finance was ongoing. The capital requirements are put at US$2.91bn, with US$1.1bn needed to get the first phase underway. Wrathall said where funding may have been hard in the past, the last six months had seen a sea change in attitude in the mining sector, with an upturn in commodity prices and investors looking for yields, which they can't get elsewhere, like from gov't bonds. "This project could become an annuity stream going forward given its high volume and hopefully relatively stable price (of the product)," he even suggests.
