Valley Isn't Filled
 
01:01
Mountaintop Mining is filled with the wrong vocabulary. Rock and dirt is not waste. A dry ditch is not a stream. A valley fill isn't really filling a valley as we really imagine.

SparHawk Maine Tourmaline - Ice Cream Sundae Pocket, a video by Cross
 
16:14
Sometime near noon Jeff opens a second gem pocket. A small opening in the rock, just enough room for a hand to slip in. This pocket is filled with water, a puddle pocket. A tray appears lined with a white towel with a blue stripe. Big green crystals are pulled from the pocket and laid out. Large white buckets are brought over to hold the small crystals. Voices talk fast, talk over each other, a jumble of words. Two minutes of mine talk: “let me see that” “where did it go” “this piece probably goes to it” “when I pulled the first one out, a bunch of stuff fell” “ these two definitely go together” “it just doesn’t end” “let’s flush the pocket out” “but I can still feel something down in there” Hose comes out, end of hose buried in pocket. “are you pushing down?” “no just a light touch” “push it a little” “if a crystal breaks, it’s gonna break anyway.” The opening is narrow. Hand squeezes in. Hand full of green crystals comes out. Five men take turns for forty-five minutes. Fists full of crystals, one after another come to light. Trays and buckets fill. I sat at the edge of this new pocket watching four guys taking turns reaching in and pulling handfuls of green crystals one after another. I made the comment “I’ve always imagined this was what tourmaline mining was like” and they all laughed, you can hear their comments on our sixteen minute Ice Cream Sundae video. They made it clear this was not what their’s or anyone’s experience of gem mining was like… and that this day and this pocket were exceptional. A while later, I took a turn at the pocket and what I experienced surprised me. The best way to describe it was as I explained to someone several days later that it was like reaching into a huge half-melted ice cream sundae made with vanilla ice cream. Following my turn, this is what I wrote. “The opening is small, just barely big enough for a hand to fit. The edges of the opening are sharp, lined with small tourmaline crystals, lepidolite and cleavelandite . The pocket is filled with gray chalky colored water. Its temperature is cool, comfortable. Reaching down and in half way to the elbow under water, I can feel the talc-like smooth white clay. I can feel the crystals all shapes and sizes embedded helter-skelter in the slippery white clay. I can feel the long smooth angularity of the blade like sides of crystals. I can feel the flat terminations and pointy terminations and long and short crystals. Moving my hand around I can feel the clay dissolve and crystals drop into my hand. Pulling my hand to the surface, water and clay spill away and there in first light are green tourmaline,some with rose colored tips.” Going back to the ice cream sundae analogy. The consistency of the white clay material was like half melted vanilla ice cream. Liquid on top, softening at the bottom. The density of this thick soup was such that when one swirled the hand and wrist around, crystals would float up in the soupy liquid and literally drop into the hand. I’ve had dreams of finding gems. This was better. Some of the material in the pocket were little pieces of lavender lepidolite and cleavelandite and cookite the size of diced walnuts and larger. I asked Jeff what he thought he might call this pocket. He said the Red Tip Pocket because some of the green crystals had red pointed tips. To carry the Ice Cream Sundae analogy to conclusion, early June up country is when the first wild baby strawberries show up in the fields with little tips of red among the green leaves. I will remember this gem pocket as the Ice Cream Sundae Garnished with Strawberries Pocket or Ice Cream Sundae Pocket for short. While this is not the scientific explanation of the geologist or mineralogist, it’s the poetic explanation of what the jeweler saw and experienced. I will never forget what it was like and I don’t think the other four men who were there will ever forget what happened that day. The video is not at all professional but gives a really good idea of the gems found in this historic discovery. June 8th and 9th were a continuation of the SparHawk Mint Green Teal Gem find at the Havey Mine in Poland Maine. We are pleased to report SparHawk Mint Green Teal Jewelry will continue to be available this year and next in our Portland Maine Store.

Strip Mining for Coal
 
03:25
A belt line is used to carry spoils from open pit coal mine. A D-11 pushes material down to a 950 LeToureau loader. The loader dumps material into a crusher that breaks the rock down small enough to be sent up a series of conveyor belts and a long line to the stockpile. There are five previous mined seams of coal in this pit and you can see some of the old workings in the video.

Abandoned Mined Land (AML) reclamation program for former coal mines
 
03:44
A national program to remediate safety and environmental hazards from past coal mining was created by the passage of federal law -- The Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA). SMCRA, Title 4, Abandoned Mined Land Reclamation http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/30/25/IV The administering agency is the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE or OSM) within the U.S. Department of the Interior. See: http://www.osmre.gov/aml/AML.shtm More about SMCRA and OSMRE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uq7YI8AHnQ Abandoned Mines: Stay out, stay alive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EsZqik612U (I was with OSM from April 1978 to May 1995; this helped get me to leave): On the night of March 4, 1995, an entire eastbound lane of Interstate 70 in Guernsey County, Ohio suddenly collapsed into a 10-foot crater swallowing a car and nearly several others plus a semi-truck --- the entire interstate being closed for six months until $4.4 million in repairs were made. On September 15, 1994, Robert Mooney, an acting field director for the federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, had sent the state a letter expressing concern for a worsening situation. The state ignored his request for an investigation of voids in the abandoned coal mines beneath the highway. More: http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/i-70-collapse 1/13/2011 - Interstate-72 bridge damaged by mine subsidence http://www.sj-r.com/carousel/x512656240/I-72-bridge-damaged-by-mine-subsidence (Excerpts) A routine bridge inspection last fall showed damage from mine subsidence under the bridge on the east side of the river, said Illinois Department of Transportation spokesman Josh Kauffman. He said the subsidence has had "a very slight impact" on the bridge, which was built in 1974. "It is still able to carry the loads it was built for," Kauffman said. "It is a very small dip." IDOT is coordinating efforts with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources' Office of Mines and Minerals. "We have devised a plan to stabilize the structure by drilling a series of bore holes to the depth of the abandoned mine and injecting a concrete grout mixture to fill any voids left from coal mining operations," Kauffman said. Department of Natural Resources spokesman Chris McCloud said the agency's Abandoned Mined Land Reclamation Division said a DNR contractor will be at the bridge Monday, weather permitting, to begin filling the area east of the river with concrete.

How to check for glass filled ruby within 30 seconds?
 
01:55
Good Morning everybody. So today this video will show you how to identify glass fill ruby within 30 seconds. Now, there can be many different types of treatments in Ruby, mostly heating and glass filling. Heating is fairly simple and mostly disclosed. However if you are a wholesaler buying a parcel of ruby or a retailer and want to test at your own level for glass fill ruby, this video is perfect for this cause. Here we have taken a few pieces of Glass fill ruby from Thailand. The best and the fastest way to identify is the surface. If you see cracks, holes coming out of the surface, polish problems, then this is likely glass fill, because glass enters the stone through the surface to remove the inclusions and bring out better color. Characteristics of glass fill ruby usually are needles, pits, holes, surface problems, cracks. Now lets take a few more pieces. Of course we are looking at lots here, if you need to be sure of the single pieces, then should go to the local gem laboratory. But for lots this is a good fast technique. Thank you for watching this video. Please do share with friends and family. For more information about understanding the most debatable question of all times whether your glass fill ruby is: glass fill ruby or ruby filled glass? Meaning is there more glass then ruby or more ruby then glass? Read here: https://www.navneetgems.com/glass-fill-rubies-are-they-today-rubies-or-glass/

Rubies in Mozambique
 
05:29
Here is my latest field video about rubies from Montepuez in Mozambique. It was done after our recent visit in July 2017. We continued to follow the evolution of the mine at MRM Gemfields, showing this time the "Maninge Nice" ruby producing area and the CSR program that MRM built to support the local communities. Besides Gemfields we also visited the 2 new mining companies who started exploration nearby: "Mustang Resources" and "Mozambique rubies", they are at a much early stage compared to MRM, but nevertheless it was interesting to see what they did and how they worked. For more info, you can see two more videos about my previous visits to Mozambique on the YouTube "GIA Field Gemology Project" channel.

The American Diaster

Communities near mountaintop removal mining sites are often subject to powerful flash floods. Without trees on steep mountain and valley fill slopes, rainfall quickly becomes dangerous. Some of the most recent flash-flooding occurred in Mingo County in southern West Virginia in May 2009. This was the 19th flood in 11 years to hit Mingo County and surrounding areas of southern West Virginia's coalfields.Killing 300 people. Massey Energy has mountaintop mines along about five miles of Gilbert Creek. Mounts' daughter believes her damage, on Pickering Creek, came from runoff from Massey's Frasure Creek mine, which had begun work in her area. Across from Mounts'own home, a narrow gully turned into a roaring river for two days after the storm. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that iron and manganese concentrations surpass drinking water guidelines in at least 40% of wells in the Appalachian Plateau, and in about 70% of the wells near reclaimed surface coal mines of the region. In a 2003 Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement, the EPA reports that "stream chemistry monitoring efforts show significant increases in conductivity, hardness, sulfate, and selenium concentrations downstream of [mountaintop removal] operations." These contaminated headwaters are the origin of drinking water resources for millions of people in major downstream American cities. Coal slurry, a byproduct of washing and processing coal with water and chemicals, is highly toxic and can leach into groundwater supplies. Up to sixty different chemicals are used to wash coal, not to mention the heavy metals naturally present in the coal. In Prenter Hollow, West Virginia, over 300 residents are suing nine coal companies for water contamination from coal slurry injected in abandoned underground mine shafts. Residents believe that the contaminated water is causing major health issues sometimes causing 1,000 deaths. In the United States today there are groups of individuals bound and determined to paint coal white. They use terms like clean coal and carbon capture like they are preaching the gospel. Many people will say there is no such thing as clean coal, including myself... let me explain. Clean coal, as preached by the coal industry, is a process of removing the Co2 (primary greenhouse gas) from coal-fired power plant emissions or flue gases and storing it indefinitely underground (carbon capture and storage). Coal has a dirty legacy going back at least 100 years that has absolutely nothing to do with flue gas. I have many memories of my father and grand-father standing on a picket line sometimes for months fighting the coal industry for better working conditions and/or better benefits. Mining related illnesses like blacklung still claim lives in the coalfields today. Now with mountaintop removal becoming so dominant other illnesses plague nearby communities. The coal industry as it relates to the health and welfare of its employees and its relationship with nearby communities is the first dirty aspect of coal. Coal mining is the second. The mining of coal actually has a few sub-branches on the 'dirty tree'-- montaintop removal, valley fill, acid mine drainage, air pollution (coal truck traffic, coal dust, blasting particulates). Ask a coal miner coming in from work and before he showers how clean coal mining is. Ask a resident affected by one of the multitude of impacts associated with mountaintop removal (blasting, blasting particulates, cracked home foundations, illnesses, economic destruction...) how clean coal mining is. The third dirty aspect of coal is the processing. This aspect has two main sub-branches -- coal dust, coal slurry.

America's Most Endangered Mountains - Ison Rock Ridge, VA Pledge to Help End Mountaintop Removal. Visit: www.iLoveMountains.org - - - COMMUNITY STORY - - - Just like the region that bears its name, the town of Appalachia, Virginia, is being threatened by new permits for mountaintop removal mining. Appalachia and nearby Andover are small communities in southwest Virginia. At one time these towns were nestled in the low-lying mountains of the region, but in the last decade or so mountaintop removal has destroyed areas all around them. Now they only have one mountain left. Ison Rock Ridge comes off of Black Mountain on the Virginia / Kentucky border and runs southeast toward the town of Appalachia. Its preservation is essential to the quality of life for the people in the community. Without it, residents lose an important ecosystem, and fear the destruction of their homes from landslides, as well as the contamination of their water from valley fill sediment. They also worry about disturbance from blasting and the resultant dust that often accompanys mountaintop removal mine sites. Though the federal permit for mining on the ridge was sent back to the Army Corps of Engineers by the Environmental Protection Agency for its failure to consider the cumulative environmental impact of many mountaintop removal mines in a concentrated area, residents fear that the mine may be allowed with only minor changes on the state level. According to the local environmental group Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards (SAMS), the Ison Rock Ridge mine would destroy three miles of streams and fill nine valleys with more than 11 million cubic yards of rock and dirt.

Spruce No.1 Mine February 2011
 
01:11
The Spruce No. 1 mine is perhaps most famous for being the first and only mine in history to have its US Army Corps of Engineers 404 permit vetoed by the US Environmental Protection Agency over violations of the Clean Water Act. If constructed, it would be the largest mountaintop removal mine in Appalachia, spanning 3,113 acres and creating six valley fills that would permanently fill six miles of streams, and directly impact more than ten miles of streams.The EPA's landmark decision was hailed by environmentalists as a great victory, and as a signal that the EPA would use it's authority under the Clean Water Act to end the illegal practice of burying streams under hundreds of feet of mining spoils. Yet since 2007, the Spruce No. 1 mine has produced 1.58 million tons of coal and employed an annual average of 24 miners, and to those who live below the mine it seems as if Arch Coal is acting like the permit was never vetoed at all. On Sunday, February 20th, Climate Ground Zero's investigative team went to the Spruce No. 1 mine in Logan County, West Virginia to do a citizens' site inspection. Here is what we saw. --Mike Roselle

Mountaintop Removal Mining, Charleston, WV
 
04:51
This video clip highlights the destructive process of strip mining of Appalachian mountains near Charleston, WV. Once mountains are blasted with dynamite to access the coal, they are destroyed forever. These mountain ranges are among the oldest geological formations that exist on our planet (480 million years old) and are one of the most biologically diverse regions in the temperate world. But there's more. Mountaintop mining removal not only destroys the mountains, but also the lives of the people who live there. Residents next to these operations live with destroyed habitat and noise. Coal dust from blasting and coal processing operations and contaminated water from valley fills and coal slurry injections into the ground causes respiratory disease, kidney and gall bladder failure, and cancer. They live with constant fear that a coal slurry impoundment might break, causing death and destruction on a massive scale. The flyover was provided by SouthWings (www.southwings.org) and depicts Kayford Mountain, a 1,200-acre mountaintop removal mine operation; Marsh Fork Elementary School, located just 150 feet from a coal loading silo and 400 yards from a 2.8 billion gallon toxic waste impoundment; and the town of Sylvester, a community whose health and property has been adversely affected by pervasive black coal dust from an adjacent mountaintop removal mining operation. Aerial footage was taken during an Eco-Justice Collaborative June, 2009 delegation to Charleston, WV. Visit www.ecojusticecollaborative.org for more information.

Exeter's 100% owned Caspiche Project in Chile (with a 3% Net Smelter Royalty to Anglo American Chile Limitada) is a gold-copper porphyry system, a type of deposit common to many of the world's largest open pit gold-copper mines. It is located in the prolific Maricunga mineral belt which is currently undergoing massive expansion and investment in mineral projects from some of the worlds largest gold miners. The project is located 15 kilometres (8 miles) south of Kinross Gold's operating Refugio mine (+9 million ounce gold reserve), and 10 kilometres (6 miles) north of the very large Cerro Casale gold-copper deposit (26 million ounce gold reserve), owned by Kinross Gold (25%)and Barrick Gold (75%). The Pre-feasibilty study used proven and probable mining reserves in the development of the mine plan and financial evaluation (based on measured and indicated resources). Total proven and probable ore reserves, generated from an updated resource estimate for the Super Pit are 1.091 billion tonnes containing 19.3 million ounces gold, 4.62 billion pounds copper, 41.5 million ounces silver. This represents on of the largest mineral endowments for any deposit to be held by a junior explorer. Further its location within a developed mining region within a politically stable country serve to highlight to value of this giant deposit, making it attractive to all medium to large scale producers who desire a stable, low risk metal production stream. A key component of the PFS is the inclusion of high tonnage IPCC systems for the movement of waste rock. This achieves greater efficiencies in the movement of the pit overburden, not only to address rising operating costs for mining waste, but also the capital and operating costs involved in the construction of tailings dam walls using conventional methods. The mine reserves and key mine production characteristics are: The mine reserves and key mine production characteristics are: The PFS has considered a conventional concentrator process route for the sulphide ore but includes a roaster to reduce arsenic levels in the final copper concentrate to commercially acceptable levels and also a flotation tailings leach process to maximise gold recovery from the sulphide ore. In parallel with the concentrator a valley fill heapleach will be operated to recover gold from the near surface heap leachable material which is extracted as part of the overall mine development and operation. Currently The company is fast tracking Ongoing metallurgical programs designed to improve metal recoveries which if successful would positively impact the project economics, Detailed geotechnical studies to support the infrastructure placement Hydrology and hydrogeological studies both at Caspiche and locations with potential to act as viable water sources for the operations Environmental base line programs to support an eventual EIA All of which is designed to feed into a full feasibility study for the oxide stand alone portion of the project and a timely update the prefeasibility study on the larger project which is expected to both improve the already robust economics and address critical project development areas. Financial Summary and Study Highlights: The project showed robust economics and strong leverage at current gold prices to generate significant revenue with a a pre-tax Net Present Value (5% discount), calculated from the time of commencement of the project, of US$ 2,800 million and average operating costs of US$ 606 per ounce gold equivalent1. The gold production cost drops to US$ 18 per ounce when copper and silver by-product credits are considered.

Drone Footage of KD#2 MTR Strip Mine near Charleston, WV
 
01:41
Check out this new drone footage of the KD#2 MTR strip mine next to Kanawha State forest (and only 5 miles from the WV state capitol building). Best viewed in HD, full screen. You'll want to turn the volume down if you have sensitive ears :) We have been fighting this mine for over a year and at this point only about 1/4th of the total permit area has been disturbed. The other 3/4 of the permit is still covered in Appalachian hardwood forests. After multiple temporary shut-downs due to numerous violations of mining laws that we helped uncover, Revelation is currently in the process of "reclaiming" the area that they mined last year. The DEP has assured us that there will be no more mining on this permit, and that no more trees will be cut. This is big news, but we won't be celebrating until we see a permit suspension in writing. You can help by contacting Randy Huffman at the DEP (304-926-0499 ext.1546 or [email protected]) and politely demanding that he permanently suspend the KD#2 permit. We continue to monitor the site, and are more than ready to jump into action if the WV DEP fails to issue a permanent permit suspension or if Revelation attempts to move beyond the area that they have already destroyed. You can join the Kanawha Forest Coalition in permanently stopping the KD#2 mine, protecting our mountains, our water, our health, and our community, by contributing here: https://actionnetwork.org/…/help-stop-mountaintop-removal-m…

KTM 990 ADVENTURE: CHASING MOUNTAIN PASSES & WATERFALLS (HD)
 
04:45
A Weekend in Newcastle. Exploring the surroundings on a KTM 990 Adventure bike. Experienced nature at it's best. Took the GoPro and Drone to capture everything while on this amazing trip. We took off doing almost 200km on day 1. First stop for the day was at the Ncandu river, thereafter at Moorfield farm. Stunning waterfalls and scenery surrounded us as we took a break and went swimming at the top of a +- 30m high waterfall. We continued on the gravel road towards Memel, whereafter we approached the Normandien mountain pass. One of the top 5 passes in Kwa Zulu-Natal. We stopped at the Ark which is a viewpoint within the Normandien pass. What a view! It was my first time visiting Newcastle, I was impressed with the stunning surroundings and how close you are to nature. Save to say I will definitely be going back. We continued all along the gravel road back to Newcastle stopping at plantations which we saw from the pass. Day 2 we took off on route Collins pass, but we decided to discover another area. We ended the day off at the Ncandu falls just outside Newcastle. Beautiful! The Normandien Pass is without question one of KZN's best gravel passes. It has all the elements of great altitude, gravel surface, lots of twists, turns and switchbacks, breathtaking views, steep gradients and a decent length - to get the adrenaline up a notch or two. Normandien Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.992m above the sea level, located in Kwa Zulu-Natal, South Africa. This pass is recommended to be driven in a 4x4 or 4x2 bakkie with diff-lock. The summit is not at the intersection, but a few kms further east at 1992m ASL. There is a good view site there where you can gawp down 500 vertical meters at the wide valley known as "Die Ark" - supposedly so-called because of the conglomeration of settlers that inhabited the valley. You will be enchanted and invigorated as you stand facing the wind drawing up the Drakensberg as it powers its way across the rolling grasslands to Memel in the Free State. If you look carefully, you will notice a stand of Yellowwood trees near the upper end of Die Ark close to the view point. There are only two roads leading into the valley from the South The road over the pass is gravel, but some of the steeper sections (with a gradient of 1:6) have concrete strips. This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. The track has all the elements of great altitude: gravel surface, lots of twists, turns and switchbacks, breathtaking views and steep gradients. Off road bikers should have experience before attempting this pass. Moorfield Mountain Farm offers visitors superb walks into its hills and old forest, as well as clambering, swimming and fishing in the water­falls and pools of the valley and kloof of the Ncandu River. Nature lovers and researchers also enjoy spending time at Moorfield to appreciate the beauty and biodiversity of the flora and fauna on the reserve, as do those who just enjoy spending quiet time in nature to retreat from the busy world in which we live for a while Newcastle, town, northwestern KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa. It lies at the foot of the Drakensberg mountains. The fourth British settlement in Natal, it was founded in 1864 as a regional trade centre. Fighting occurred in the vicinity during both the First Boer War (1881) and the South African War (1899–1902). Newcastle has long been known for its coal mining and steel production. Ncandu Falls is a waterfall in the Ncandu River in Northern KwaZulu-Natal, in South Africa close to the town of Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal. The Ncandu State Forest Nature Reserve is the second biggest indigenous forest in KwaZulu Natal and is filled with grassy plains and yellowwood gorges. There are many little streams running through the forest that meet the Ncandu River where trout are plentiful. This is the ideal place for a scenic stroll or relaxing horse ride. Many trails run through the reserve which take you all though the sandstone cliffs, to the majestic waterfalls and allow for fabulous birding opportunities. You get here via boat and can wither walk on boardwalks through the forest or above the roof of the forest where the views are simply stunning.

Recipe: Stardew Valley ingredients - Bread, Cave Carrot & Eggplant IRL ingredients - Homeburger buns: 300g Bread flour (or you can use all purpose flour) 60g softened butter 7g rapid action yeast (if you don’t have rapid yeast, you can use active dry yeast, but make sure you activate using water) Egg 2 tsp sesame seeds Large pinch of salt 190ml lukewarm water Burger ingredients: Carrots Halloumi Aubergine 3 tbs Sour cream 3g flour Fresh coriander/fresh mint Tomato Lettuce Steps Mix the flour with the butter in a large bowl, with the salt and yeast. Combine with the lukewarm water. Start working the dough - it starts off sticky but keep kneading it and it should change consistency after around 10 minutes or so. Lightly oil a bowl with oil (I recommend canola) and add the dough - cover with a damp towel or greased clingfilm for at least half an hour. Leave in a warm place. Wash and slice aubergine and garlic. By now your dough should have doubled in size. Empty it onto a lightly floured surface and knead it for a few minutes. Form the dough into a large sausage shape and divide into six. Roll into a ball and press firmly down. Transfer onto the baking tray, and cover again, as before, for at least 15 minutes. They should start to look more puffy! Preheat the oven to 375F/190C. Grate your carrots and squeeze over the sink to prevent a soggy burger. Grate halloumi, and combine the carrot and halloumi mix with the sour cream and flour. Add more flour if too wet and less if too dry. Shape into patties. Ensure your buns are well formed, and crack the egg into a bowl and briefly whisk to make the egg wash. Brush the buns, and sprinkle sesame seeds. Bake for around 20 minutes or until golden or well risen. When baked, cool on a wire rack. Fry your aubergine with garlic and olive oil either on a griddle or frying pan. Fry your burger in another pan, ensuring the sides get browned too. Slice a tomato, and add lettuce and you are ready to assemble! Sit back, enjoy!!!

Startup sets sights on mining asteroids by 2020
 
00:55
RESTRICTIONS: NONE For story suggestions please contact [email protected] A California startup plans to mine asteroids for profit. The company from Silicon Valley, Deep Space Industries, recently announced that it plans on launching a precursor mission in 2017 and will commence its first mission by 2020. The company wants to mine asteroids for water, carbon and other elements, precious metals, and even in-space building materials. It will begin with extracting water. Deep Space Industries plans on sending a small spacecraft named Prospector-1 to low-Earth orbit on an experimental mission. The Prospector-1 weighs 50 kilograms when fueled and was designed to be cost effective. Once the initial campaign is complete, Prospector-1 will hitch a ride on low-Earth orbit then point towards an asteroid and jet propel itself to its target. Once near, Prospector-1 will map the surface and subsurface of the asteroid locating resources. Prospector-1 will also attempt to land on the asteroid. On the asteroid, Prospector-1 will mine water, which it will use as fuel. The craft expels superheated water vapor to generate thrust. Asteroids will be selected by a group of experts. If successful, the first mission will pave way for future spacecrafts to use asteroid water as refueling stations. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1. Prospector-1 profile 2.

This is a short video of the Site Of 1869 Stockton Mine Disaster. I took this video on 3/26/16 in Hazelton, Pennsylvania. December 18, 1869 in the village of Stockton, PA, at approximately 5:00 in the morning, a coal mine caved in, filling the shaft and tunnel with enormous amounts of earth, and carrying two large houses with it. There were several people in the dwelling houses at the time of the accident and were carried down in the falling mass. It was reported that some men were in the mine at the time, all were supposed to be killed instantly. The houses fell a distance of forty feet and were broken into fragments. Ten persons in all lost their lives. The cause of the accident was determined to be digging the mine too close to the surface. More info: http://www.pagenweb.org/~luzerne/mines/stockton.htm

How does mountaintop removal affect the environment? Mountaintop Removal is occurring right at the heart of one of the nations main hotspots of biological diversity. According to the Nature Conservancy, the mountain region including southwest Virginia, southern West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and northeastern Tennessee contains some of the highest levels of biological diversity in the nation. This region is also at the headwaters of the drinking water supplies of many US cities. The maps below show hotspots of biodiversity based on a rarity-weighted index biological diversity produced by the Nature Conservancy, as well as the major river systems with headwaters in the Appalachian coalfields. Unfortunately, there is little information on the cumulative impacts of mountaintop removal because the federal agencies that are charged with regulating coal mining have refused to track the overall extent and impacts of mountaintop removal. The one attempt at acomprehensive analysis of MTR by government agencies was presented in a multi-agency Environmental Impact Statement that was completed in 2003. This effort was initiated in the late 90s, but the focus of the EIS was revised after the White House changed hands in 2001. According to the Charleston Gazette: When it formally kicked off the project in February 1999, the EPA said the goal was to consider developing agency policies to minimize, to the maximum extent practicable the adverse environmental effects of mountaintop removal. By October 2001, then-Deputy Interior Secretary Steven J. Griles, a former mining industry lobbyist, had ordered the project refocused toward centralizing and streamlining coal mine permitting. Cindy Tibbot, a FWS biologist involved in the EIS process, was one of many agency scientists who expressed outrage about Griles directive, stating in an internal memo: Its hard to stay quiet about this when I really believe were doing the public and the heart of the Clean Water Act a great disservice. As Tibbot put it, the only alternatives offered in Griles proposed EIS would be: alternative locations to house the rubber stamp that issues the [mining] permits. While the EIS did compile a lot of disparate information on the effects and extent of MTR, the analysis was based on mining permit maps. According to satellite analysis done by Michael Shank at the TAGIS center of the West Virginia DEP, however, those permit maps are underestimating the extent of valley fill in 6 West Virginia coal counties by about 40%. Thus, the entire EIS is based on verifiably faulty data. Despite its many flaws, however, the multi-agency environmental impact statement did provide some useful information on the extent and impacts of mountaintop removal. Here are some of the impacts and concerns expressed in the final EPA report: More than 7 percent of Appalachian forests have been cut down and more than 1,200 miles of streams across the region have been buried or polluted between 1985 and 2001. Over 1000 miles of streams have been permitted to be buried in valley fills. (for scale, this is a greater distance than the length of the entire Ohio River). Mountaintop removal mining, if it continues unabated, will cause a projected loss of more than 1.4 million acres by the end of the decade-an area the size of Delaware-with a concomitant severe impact on fish, wildlife, and bird species, not to mention a devastating effect on many neighboring communities. 800+ square miles of mountains are estimated to be already destroyed. (this is equal to a one-quarter mile wide swath of destruction from New York to San Francisco - it is also significantly underestimated). Other quotes from the 2003 report include: … studies found that the natural return of forests to mountaintop mines reclaimed with grasses under hay and pasture or wildlife post-mining land uses occurs very slowly. Full reforestation across a large mine site in such cases may not occur for hundreds of years. Because it is difficult to intercept groundwater flow, it is difficult to reconstruct free flowing streams at mountaintop removal sites. Stream chemistry monitoring efforts show significant increases in conductivity, hardness, sulfate, and selenium concentrations downstream of [mountaintop removal] operations. http://www.ilovemountains.org

Bagshawe Cavern
 
06:30
Bagshawe Cavern is a sizeable cave located above the village of Bradwell in Derbyshire, UK. Formerly a show cave, the system is now popular with adventure groups and club cavers alike. Derbyshire was an extensive area of lead mining in the 18th century, and miners digging Mulespinner Mine broke through into extensive natural cave passage with an active stream. Indeed the way on today is through the mined Mulespinner entrance and down almost 100 steps into the natural cave. This video follows a group down the Mulespinner steps, past the Dungeon, an approximately 8m deep pothole linking to the lower series, and along the upper main passage to the Hippodrome, a large circular chamber with many fallen boulders. From there a low muddy crawl brings the group out near the main stream, the Bradwell Brook. The water is next seen at Bagshawe Resurgence in Bradwell village. Water levels were quite low on this trip, and indeed the Dungeon was completely dry. In flood conditions, the Dungeon can fill completely with water and the muddy crawl through to the main stream can fill to the roof. Thanks to the Derbyshire (NW) Scouts Caving Team and members of 7th Manchester Scout Group.
