Mining boom in South Australia? It's a sellout!
 
00:43
http://cuttlefishcountry.com After a decade of mineral exploration across the state, it's finally here... South Australia's Massive Statewide Clearance Sale! It's boom time, and whether you're a mining giant like BHP Billiton with a stake the size of Olympic Dam or a junior miner just starting out... our mineral resources are set to run out the door! Worried about collateral damage? Don't be. Indigenous sacred sites have been slashed and we've got unbeatable prices on water, from aquifers of all sizes. We're practically giving it away! Yes, we're on the wrong side of the country to reach the market, and we have no serious export shipping facilities to load the ore through... but we simply WON'T be beaten on price! Listen to the wisdom of Mad Mike and rush in and save... before it's too late! Find out more about at http://cuttlefishcountry.com

Impacts of Mining

beneath the surface COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS FOR THE GLOBAL MINING THREAT Project Vision: Preventing Human Rights Abuses Related to Mining The objective of this multi-­‐year project is to build a multimedia toolkit that educates, empowers, and connects communities impacted by extractive industries. The toolkit aims to stop human rights abuses before they occur and to put communities in a strong position to protect their rights and fight for justice. The project uses videos to share stories and practical advice from communities already impacted by mining with communities where mining will soon occur. These stories will form the foundation of a video toolkit that provides communities with strategies and techniques for protecting their rights, and inspires them to action. Cutting Edge Tools for Community Organizations All videos will be published with a facilitator’s guide to help maximize the impact of video screenings and support communities in taking meaningful action. Videos will be distributed on DVDs, USBs, and online, along with links to relevant guides and further information on key topics and strategies covered in the videos. Key partners will also be provided with projection equipment and hands-­‐on training to launch their grassroots distribution program. Video Collection: Year 1 ● The Impacts of Mining (Peru, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe) ● Baseline Data and Environmental Monitoring (Nigeria) ● Community Mapping and Resistance to Mining (Ghana) ● Building a Resistance Movement (Peru, forthcoming) ● Negotiating for Environmental Protections (Bolivia, forthcoming) ● Resettlement and Relocation (Zimbabwe, forthcoming) Iteration & Year 2 The second phase of our project emphasizes distribution, feedback, and iteration. We will hold special screenings with target audiences in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and other countries where mining poses an imminent threat. We are also seeking feedback from experts and practitioners on how to improve the content, and our distribution and implementation strategy. Get Involved! If you’re interested in collaborating on the project, hosting a screening, or providing advice or feedback, please contact Jessie Landerman at [email protected]
Thousands of mining jobs are waiting in Western Australia but Aussies don’t want them

Thousands of mining jobs are waiting in Western Australia but Aussies don’t want them: https://www.news.com.au/finance/business/mining/thousands-of-mining-jobs-are-waiting-in-western-australia-but-aussies-dont-want-them/news-story/9abb09bee9c85fc6419597a14e77df3e. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd_ODCcrc4jEWgi4qYyy0wg?sub_confirmation=1  From 2012 to 2016, the mining industry experienced a severe downturn, culling close to 60,000 jobs and making full-time work an almost impossible get. But now, especially in Western Australia and Queensland, the mining industry is on the road to recovery — and companies are begging Aussies to come and work for them. According to the latest data from SEEK, the mining, resource and energy sector has consistently recorded the largest growth in job ads for the past 11 months. The sector is throwing out 32 per cent more job ads now than it was at the same time last year and is posting almost four times more job ads than Australia’s average. But just because mining companies are putting out thousands of ads and offering salaries paying well over $150,000 doesn’t mean Aussies are picking them up. Earlier this week, the CEO of WA’s Chamber of Minerals and Energy backed a migration agreement that would hopefully combat a severe skills shortage in the mining region of the Goldfields. If approved, the Designated Area Migration Agreement would allow overseas workers to be flown over to work in the mines and would make them exempt from the skilled migrants requirement. Chief executive Paul Everingham told the ABC there were more than 1000 vacancies in the Kalgoorlie-Boulder mining sector and said the region was at crisis point.  “You can’t sugar coat that — they’re available now and they’re not being filled, so however you can get them (workers),” Mr Everingham said. “All Australian companies want to employ Australians first, but if there aren’t enough Australians … we have got to remember there’s an infrastructure boom going on in NSW. “So if we have to set up special immigration or work zones, our members would definitely welcome the ability to get access to skilled workers immediately.” The WA mining industry is advertising for thousands of jobs ranging from cleaners to tradesmen to university-educated engineers. But following Mr Everidge’s comments, a number of people involved in the state’s mining industry have said more needs to be done to make relocating an attractive proposition. Despite the huge salaries fly-in fly-out workers earn, most complain of having no work-life balance. FIFO workers typically have higher rates of suicide, struggle with depression due to long hours and loneliness and report higher rates of workplace bullying and alcoholism. In 2015, the West Australian government conducted a 10-month investigation into the state’s FIFO workforce. Lifeline WA admitted in October last year it still had no idea exactly how many FIFO workers were affected by mental illness or how many had committed suicide while away from their families to work in the state’s mines. Even the report issued after the lengthy investigation admitted “the inquiry struck several problem areas in relation to statistics”. “Clear data was difficult to find in the areas of: a definitive total number of workers employed in the Western Australia resources industry on a FIFO #Thousands, #mining, #jobs, #waiting, #WesternAustralia, #Aussies, #don’t, #want, #them #miningindustry, #mentalillness, #mentalhealth, #workersdying, #miningindustryaccounts, #flyinflyoutworkers, #Australiangovernment, #miningsector, #resourcesindustry, #Australiancompanies, #parttimework, #miningcompanies, #miningregion, #mentalhealthissues, #migrationagreement, #skilledmigrantsrequirement, #Companiestalk, #miningjobs, #worklifebalance, #suicidestatistics, #prevalencerate, #suiciderates, #crisispoint, #energysector, #productionsites, #skillsshortage, #problemareas, #WesternAustralia, #Australia, #AustraliaandNewZealand, #Oceania, #Queensland, #UniversityofWesternAustralia, #AustralianBureauofStatistics, #CommunityServices, #MentalHealthCommission, #ChamberofMineralsandEnergy, #PeterMiller, #PaulEveringham, #NatalieWolfe

Olympic Dam mine expansion- Environmental impacts of tailings & water by Dr Gavin Mudd - Pt 2
 
08:53
http://cuttlefishcountry.com BHP Billiton's Olympic Dam mine is massive and destined to become the biggest open cut mine in the world. Naturally, with massive mines come massive impacts... environmentally, socially and economically. Widely published environmental engineer Dr Gavin Mudd (Monash University) gives this presentation on the impact the mining operation will have from the desert to the sea, and beyond through the export of dangerous radioactive materials. Tailings dams will leak radioactive waste into the earth in the South Australian desert, the water drawn from the Great Artesian Basin will continue to dry natural mound springs, threaten pastoral and agricultural bores and endanger arid zone ecology and indigenous sacred sites. Dr Gavin Mudd delivered this presentation in Adelaide, South Australia on October 9th, 2011... the day before the mega-mine project received environmental approval from both State and Federal Governments.

Restoring the Dry Creek Salt Field in South Australia
 
02:06
In South Australia, an area of important coastal habitat that has been cut off from the sea is being restored. Learn about this project that has reconnected a degraded intertidal wetland to the life sustaining waters of the sea for the first time in decades. The Dry Creek Salt Field located 30 minutes’ drive from Adelaide in South Australia has produced salt from the evaporation of seawater since the 1930s. Following the salt field’s closure, as a trial, a small pond was isolated from the rest of the salt field and reconnected to the sea via a tidal creek. The creek now delivers water flows to the degraded site and the process of restoration has begun. The results? So far, we’ve seen a rapid restoration of the water and soil quality. And for the first time in decades, vegetation, fish and invertebrates are beginning to reinhabit the pond. Restoring the wetland will also help better protect the coast and even provides a ‘blue-carbon’ opportunity. Find out more about how we’re bringing new life to our coastal environments at www.environment.sa.gov.au/coasts This initiative was funded by the South Australian Government with a significant contribution from the Australian Government through Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges’ Samphire Coast Icon Project. It could not have proceeded without the assistance and goodwill of the following partners: - University of Adelaide - Buckland Dry Creek Pty Ltd - Royal Park Salvage - Department for Energy and Mining - Natural Resources Adelaide Mt Lofty Ranges - Environment Protection Authority - Primary Industries and Regions SA

Elon Musk says Australia’s energy emergency is easily fixable - Part one | 60 Minutes Australia

It’s been a miserable few weeks for Malcolm Turnbull’s government, stalled by myriad cock-ups and controversies. But the greatest challenge it faces continues to be Australia’s crisis over energy supply and cost. Who hasn’t been shocked by a recent electricity or gas bill? And who isn’t infuriated that power prices have risen so sharply? In a country as abundant with resources as ours it defies logic that there are now some Australians who can’t even pay for the electricity or gas to cook a simple meal. While federal – and state – politicians scramble to act, Elon Musk, the American billionaire with the brilliant mind, says he wants to help.

Rainbow Opals - Hidden Treasure (Full Documentary)
 
25:31
Our world produces some incredible rocks. Take the opal, a precious stone that forms out of silica, in the dark under the surface of the earth. When cut and polished, it flashes with a gorgeous array of colours, from pale milky hues to deep reds and blacks. Now, an opal that has been named the finest ever unearthed will be making its public debut next month as the centrepiece of an exhibition opening at the South Australian Museum, Adelaide. Called the Virgin Rainbow, it was discovered in the opal fields of Coober Pedy by opal miner John Dunstan in 2003. It's actually an opalised fossil, from an extinct cephalopod called belemnitida that existed during the Mesozoic era. During that time, much of South Australia was under a vast inland sea filled with prehistoric aquatic reptiles called plesiosaurs. These died and sank to the bottom of the sea, buried over the millennia by sediment. When the sea dried up and the land turned into a desert, the acidity levels in the shallow top layer of the sandstone increased. This released silica from weathering sandstone into the layer of clay beneath, where bones and pockets left by disintegrated bones lay buried, carried down via groundwater. Further weathering lowered the acidity levels, which allowed the silica gel to harden into opals in the pockets and impressions left by decayed animal material, like cake poured into a mould, or to soak into bones and create a replica of the internal structure. The famous Australian opal fields of Coober Pedy are located in this region. No other environment in the world is known to have undergone this same process, which is possibly why over 90 percent of the world's opals come from South Australia. SUBSCRIBE

Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines
 
29:23
Gold Dust: Under Blaise Compaore's leadership, Burkina Faso's unregulated gold rush has had a devastating effect on mining conditions. This report digs deep into the industry, exposing the corruption beneath Compaore's ruling. Millions of people - including children as young as fourteen - mine in an unregulated industry for a few golden grams of hope. Marcel toils underground to support his family - but without the glittering rewards promised. “We all have hope, we hope to earn” he says, but "they rob us here...They treat the miner like an animal." 17-year old Soumaele has been mining for two years. His thin body can go to even deeper than the older men, to places where the air is impossible to breathe and the tunnels are likely to collapse. Gold promises a great deal, but in an anarchic industry, teacher Soungalo Hema fears for the future of children like Soumaele: "You try and save them", she says, "but a lot of the time it’s in vain. I ask myself 'what will happen to all of us?'"

Cuttlefish Country environmental issues, Dan Monceaux on The Barometer, Radio Adelaide
 
16:02
http://cuttlefishcountry.com Documentary film director Dan Monceaux is interviewed by Joy de Leo from 'The Barometer', a specialty environmental show originally broadcast on Radio Adelaide, 101.5 FM in South Australia. Joy's questions focus on the provision of water to the BHP Billiton Olympic Dam mine expansion and Roxby Downs, a 30 billion dollar development that has been consistently trumpeted as an economic boon to the state's flagging economy. Dan's documentary explores the project's broader ledger, which balances social and evironmental costs with economic prospects. In this live radio interview, Joy asks Dan about the desalination plant proposed for Point Lowly, the epicentre of a highly constrained breeding area for the Giant Australian Cuttlefish. Dan also describes another less publicised plan for the area in the expansion of Port Bonython- a major project which proposes to run a second jetty spur through the heart of the rocky reef at Stony Point to service the export needs of iron ore miners. The long term problems with Great Artesian Basin water extraction are discussed, and groundwater contamination and dewatering concerns at Port Bonython and in the Koppio Hills respectively are introduced.

Challenges of the mining boom: Australia and Latin America - PART 1 [Shifting Sands Conference 2013]
 
47:13
[PUBLIC LECTURE 2013] ANCLAS Conference 2013 - Latin America and the Resources Boom For more than a decade, many Latin American countries have benefited from the booming prices of oil, gas and minerals. Extractive industries - for good or ill - have had a profound impact on politics, society and environment in the region. This conference evaluates the resources boom in Latin America, its potential and its problems. http://politicsir.cass.anu.edu.au/centres/australian-national-centre-for-latin-american-studies/events/shifting-sands-2013
G-FLOWS - Facilitating Long-term Outback Water Solutions: Hidden Water, Innovative Exploration
 
01:36
The SA Regional Mining and Infrastructure Plan (2014) stated that water availability is or will be a critical factor in the success of current and future mining projects. Reliable water availability is also critical to sustaining indigenous community water supplies in the APY Lands and to develop economic development opportunities including the indigenous-managed pastoral industry. There is limited knowledge of the groundwater resources in the Musgrave Province, consequently, there is a need to identify and determine the potential of groundwater resources in the region to protect community water supplies and to provide water for economic development and employment opportunities. The Goyder Institute for Water Research’s Finding Long-term Outback Water Solutions (G-FLOWS) research projects (G-FLOWS Stage 1 in the APY Lands and Stage 2 on Eyre Peninsula) developed new techniques to interpret airborne geophysical electromagnetic (AEM) data to identify groundwater resources buried by deep sediments, which is a constraint to identifying water sources in the northern parts of SA which also impedes mineral discovery. The G-FLOWS Stage 3 project is utilising new AEM data collected in late 2016 under the PACE programme (co-funded by DEW) to undertake a targeted program of data acquisition, interpretation and mapping of groundwater resources in the Musgrave Province. The research is applying the new and innovative geophysical techniques developed in the previous G-FLOWS Stage 1 and 2 projects combined with field evaluation techniques to map the groundwater resources. The Goyder Institute for Water Research is a partnership between the South Australian Government through the Department for Environment and Water, CSIRO, Flinders University, the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia and The International Centre of Excellence in Water Resources Management. The Institute enhances the South Australian Government’s capacity to develop and deliver science-based policy solutions in water management. It brings together the best scientists and researchers across Australia to provide expert and independent scientific advice to inform good government water policy and identify future threats and opportunities to water security.
2018 SA labour and business prospects with Vavi  and Papenfus
 
09:55
For the better part of the 2017 the labour and employers sector and the economy has been dominated by job losses, retrenchment and low growth. The depressed labour market shed over a million jobs manily in the mining sector. The business environment has also been subdued by low economic growth, decline in business confidence and lack of clear policy direction. To discuss the 2018 prospects for labour and business environment we are joined in the studio by General Secretary of the South African Federation of Trade Union (saftu) Zwelinzima Vavi and the National Employers Association of South Africa (Neasa) Chief Executive Officer Gerard Papenfus.

Australia's Mine Games - 101 East
 
26:16
It will be the largest coal mine in Australia and one of the biggest in the world - if it goes ahead. The proposed Carmichael mine will span more than 30 kilometres and produce 60 million tonnes of coal annually. Adani, the Indian company behind the mine, says it will create thousands of jobs, and it has the Australian Government's unwavering support. But its facing fierce opposition from critics who say the mine is commercially unviable and will wreak havoc on the environment. 101 East investigates whether the Adani mine will be a bonanza for Australia or a destructive disaster.

Australian mining companies threatening the rights of women
 
00:59
Women are disproportionately impacted by mining, facing entrenched poverty, gender-based violence, loss of livelihoods, health problems, and increased unpaid work. Fossil fuel mining is fueling dangerous climate change, which also impacts on women the most. Australia now has more mining companies than any other country operating in Africa, including many coal, oil and gas projects. We call on the Australian Government to: 1. Introduce transparency by requiring companies to report publicly on all their projects 2. Ensure justice for mining-affected communities through an independent watchdog 3. Provide Government funding and loans to local women-led climate solutions, not fossil fuels Sign the petition today! http://act.ai/ClimatePetition
