Russell Taylor opines that over the last several years mining has been despised by all types of people from all parts of the globe. Mining is described as archaic and so unnecessary. It has become trendy to oppose mining in all of its shape and forms. The greens and left-wingers convinced the media who convinced the politicians, who in turn convinced you. But like the old Chinese Whispers, the facts have long been lost. But that is not the most interesting part.

What the greens, politicians and media do not tell you, is that almost every part of your life and lifestyle is only made ... More →

Understanding the dynamic of how emotion relates to logic is important when designing and implementing a safety system at a mine, but it is not always easy to achieve. In this month, in a Mining Engineering online Web Exclusive, T.W. Camm, assistant professor at Montana Tech writes about teaching engineers and geologists how to think differently to create a safe work environment.

Toureta and Huizenga (2012) report that charnockites sensu lato (charnockite-enderbite series) are lower crustal felsic rocks typically characterized by the presence of anhydrous minerals including orthopyroxene and garnet. They either represent dry (H2O-poor) felsic magmas that are emplaced in the lower crust or granitic intrusions that have been dehydrated during a subsequent granulite facies metamorphic event.

In the first case, post-magmatic high-temperature crystallization may result in widespread metamorphic granulite microstructures, superimposed or replacing the magmatic mi... More →

The aim of CRIRSCO (Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards) is to contribute to earning and maintaining that trust by promoting high standards of reporting of mineral deposit estimates (Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves) and of exploration progress (Exploration Results).

CRIRSCO was formed in 1994 and for much of its life was an informal alliance of National Reporting Organisations (NROs) in participating countries with the mining industry in recent years, CRIRSCO has evolved to become a more rigorously constituted committee. It is recognised by global... More →

Ellis (2015) reports that in August 2013, the Appraisal Practices Board of the U.S. Appraisal Foundation issued its APB Valuation Advisory #4 - Identifying Comparable Properties, which contains analysis and examples that may suggest a broader meaning of the term comparable properties than is current convention in real property value appraisal in the United States and internationally.

The advisory is directed at the appraisal of real property of all kinds, including interests in mineral properties, as indicated by the inclusion of two mineral property appraisal papers in the appendi... More →

Sibahle Malinga reports that mining companies are turning to drone or UAV technology to revamp their operations and rethink their cost structures. The mining industry has become the latest industry to embrace drones, which are used for everything ranging from mapping to mineral exploration to tracking stockpiles.

This is according to Gregory Donaldson, chief flight instructor and chief pilot at drone pilot training centre UAV Industries, who explains drones have quickly taken off in the local mining industry in recent months, potentially making it the fastest growing industry in dro... More →

The GAO was asked by Congress to review minerals extracted from federal lands. The GAO's objectives were to provide information on: (1) volume and dollar value of leasable minerals extracted from federal lands and waters in fiscal years 2010 and 2011; (2) amount the federal government collected for leasable minerals in royalties, rents, bonuses, and other
revenue and how this amount was calculated; and (3) availability of data on the volume and dollar value of hardrock minerals extracted from federal lands in fiscal years 2010 and 2011. Enclosure I contains the briefing on the volume, val... More →

The world oceans are vast and deep, yet rapidly advancing technology and the quest for mineral resources from previously unreachable depths is beginning to put the deep seas on the cusp of peril, so warn an international team of scientists this week. In an analysis in the journal Biogeosciences, which is published by the European Geosciences Union, the researchers outline services or benefits provided by the deep ocean to society. Yet using these services, now and in the future, they conclude that it is likely to make a significant impact on that habitat and what it ultimately does for society... More →

Stephen Hume reports that it is time for some sober second thoughts to just how much we rely on the minerals from the earth and what we can reasonably do to mitigate the consequences of our own appetites.

Hume infers that the public could no longer use the family car or the transit pass, and one may bike to work instead and feeling somewhat righteous about helping British Columbia, for example, wean itself from its addiction to the mining industry and the minerals it extracts. And say good bye to the coal miner for the privilege. And do not forget the hardrock miner not to mention t... More →

Haldorson reports that individuals across the U.S. are speaking out in favor of mining because of its overall contributions to job growth and economic success. For Kirk D. Haldorson of Duluth, Minn., his father mining job provided financial security and success for his family for generations.

Growing up in a mining town, he never really thought of mining as anything but a normal, regular industry, and quite possibly I took for granted that it would always be there. I think that, as a state - Minnesota, he had to support the efforts of mining metals in a responsible nature that will... More →

The contributions of U.S. mining to the nation's economy are dramatically underscored in a new report released today that shows nearly 1.8 million Americans from all 50 states owe their jobs wholly or in part to the mining of domestic coal, metals and minerals and suppliers of goods and services to U.S. mining operations. The report by PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Economic Contributions of U.S. Mining in 2008, documents that more than 564,000 Americans were employed directly by an estimated 15,000 U.S. mining operations and their support and transportation providers in 2008. An additional 1.23 ... More →
