Index / Health & Safety - Mining, Environmental, Cyber

In the mining industry, there are very prescriptive regulations that describe how training is to be carried out. But those are not always enough, nor are they necessarily the best way to assure that workers know how to safely perform their assigned tasks. CORESafety views the regulatory requirements as the base and then goes a step beyond those requirements.

Training is integral to the success of achieving the goal of 0 ..50 ..5 and it is the responsibility of everyone in your company to make this work. Ultimately, it involves making sure that all workers are trained to be as compe... More →

The NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards is intended as a source of general industrial hygiene information for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. The Pocket Guide presents key information and data in abbreviated tabular form for 677 chemicals or substance groupings (e.g., manganese compounds, tellurium compounds, inorganic tin compounds, etc.) that are found in the work environment.

The industrial hygiene information found in the Pocket Guide should help users recognize and control occupational chemical hazards. The chemicals or substances contained in thi... More →

Index / Climate Change, Anthropocene & Associated Issues

Dr. Conca says we need to institute a Clean Energy Standard that promotes all low-carbon energy rather than continuing with a Renewable Energy Standard that is narrowly-focused on wind and solar. If you care about climate change, and do not just have an ideological (aka political) stand on a particular energy source, then we need all low-carbon sources as fast as possible to have any hope of reigning in the most adverse environmental effects of burning fossil fuels.

Along with an increasing abundance of gas, coal and oil, the present focus on renewables has stalled the effort to low... More →

Index / Conventional Oil & Gas Resources / Economics

Arthur Berman opines that 2 years into the global oil-price collapse, it seems unlikely that prices will return to sustained levels above $70 per barrel any time soon or perhaps, never. That is because the global economy is exhausted. The current oil-price rally is over as Berman predicted several months ago and prices are heading down toward $40 per barrel.

Oil has been re-valued to affordable levels based on the real value of money. The market now accepts the erroneous producer claims of profitability below the cost of production and has adjusted expectations accordingly. Meanwhil... More →

Index / Wind Energy / Economics

Oliver Massmann, general director of Duane Morris Vietnam LLC, reports that Vietnam can be seen as a strong international competitor in wind energy as it has significant potential for wind energy and a continuously increasing electricity demand.

However, the World Bank reported that only 8.6% of Vietnam territory has potential for the development of wind energy, in comparison with 2.9% in Laos, and just 0.2% in Cambodia and Thailand.

Although Vietnam possesses some potential for wind-power production and an energy sector with strong interests from domestic and foreign inv... More →

Brownfields are properties that may have hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminants present. The EPA Brownfields Program provides grants and technical assistance to communities, states, tribes and others to assess, safely clean up and sustainable reuse these contaminated properties.

Cleaning up and reinvesting in brownfields protects human health and the environment, reduces blight, and takes development pressures off greenspaces and working lands. To learn more about the EPA broader efforts to put previously contaminated properties back into productive use, read about the EP... More →

Reardon Environmental, Inc., now I2M-Environmental, is a Houston-based company that specializes in soil and groundwater remediation. The company has been remediating contaminated properties for more than ten years using innovative delivery systems capable of injecting liquid inoculants into soil to volatilize or break-down contaminants into harmless by-products.They indicate that they can reduce both the time and cost associated with clean-ups. Once the contaminated areas have been identified by employing the appropriate methods of investigation, their approach can avoid the costly dig and hau... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry

Eduardo Porter, of the NY Times, asks the question ... Is the global effort to combat climate change, painstakingly agreed to in Paris seven months ago, already going off the rails? He reports that Germany, Europe champion for renewable energy, seems to be having second thoughts about its ambitious push to ramp up its use of renewable fuels for power generation (in place of their existing nuclear power).

Hoping to slow the burst of new renewable energy on its grid, the country eliminated an open-ended subsidy for solar and wind power and put a ceiling on additional renewable capacit... More →

NexGen reports Hole AR-16-81c3 shows 23 meters at 17.19% U3O8 including 5 meters at 49.27% U3O8 at the Arrow Deposit in the Athabasca Basin. High-grade uranium assays intersected in the A2 shear also contain high-grade gold and silver values, with individual 0.5 meter samples ranging from BTL up to 90.4 g per ton Au and 418 g per ton Ag. Hole AR-16-81c3 returned 9.5 m at 7.9 g per ton Au and AR-16-86c1 returned 20.4 m at 1.9 g per ton Au. Also of significant importance, geochemical analyses continue to show very low concentrations of de1eterious elements (arsenic, antimony, selenium), which is... More →
