Nanaimo's Coal Mining History
http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi NANAIMO - Evidence of Vancouver Island's rich history is all around us, but you may not know that it is also beneath our feet and that's especially true in Nanaimo. The first European settlers were drawn to the region by black gold. They built the Harbour City on the coal mining industry.

Coal-mining towns face looming phase-out of the resource
The mayor of Hanna, Alberta, says a carbon tax and the phase-out of coal could hurt investment in the coal-mining town. Meanwhile, a mining town in B.C., which exports its coal overseas, may face less of an impact.

Centralia Burning Ghost Town - Pennsylvania USA
Centralia, Pennsylvania was nearly entirely evacuated following a coal mine fire, burning beneath the town since 1962. Centralia’s fire started in 1962, when residents turned an old strip mine into a dump, and setting the rubbish alight. The fire spread through an unsealed opening to the underground coal mines, igniting a seam of coal, and the fire has been burning to this day. In 1992, Pennsylvania condemned the town and claimed it under eminent domain in an attempt for force the remaining residents out. Some sued, and were allowed to stay. A section of State Route 61 was abandoned after it began to buckle and crumble from the underground fire. The fire stretches 12km, and burns underneath an area of 15 square kilometres, 300 feet below ground, authorities say the fire could burn for another 250 years. The town now mostly attracts tourists who visit an abandoned highway, where many profanities and obscene pictures are spray painted onto it, over time the highway has earned the nickname Graffiti Highway. Centralia is rumored to have inspired Silent Hill.

While the Harper Government recently agreed to examine a new version of the mine it already rejected last year, the BC Government has pushed ahead, granting the company permits to begin work. The result is an accelerating stand-off between First Nations, Taseko and the Clark Government - highlighted at this rally outside the courthouse on Monday.

SPECIAL REPORT: Foreign-funded corporation posing as a First Nation blocks pipeline
https://www.therebel.media/exclusive-cbc-fake-news-canada-indigenous-first-nations-native-rebel-media-bexte Shocking news: an anti-pipeline lobby group in B.C. is not actually a real Indian band, but rather a foreign-funded corporation. Keean Bexte reports how the CBC manipulated the public into thinking a fake First Nation had a right to the land on which they're blocking pipeline construction. Like our independent journalism?

What you haven’t heard is this alarming side of the story. This pipeline is heading from Dawson Creek to Kitimat, a similar geographical line as a few other pipeline attempts. Remember Trans Mountain? Same place. Instead of oil, however, this Coastal Gaslink line will export Canadian natural gas. It will run through a number of First Nations, and each of them has signed an agreement accepting money and jobs in return for the pipeline. Every single one, including the Wet’suwet’en. But what about those Wet’suwet’en blockaders that were arrested by the RCMP for illegally contravening a court injunction? You must have heard of them: the mainstream media has been swooning over their plight for weeks, helping them drum up a patchwork of support across Canada. Using the Wet’suwet’en name, these eco-radicals have manipulated the public into thinking that the blockaders actually hold some sort of right to the land that the pipeline is being built on, when in fact all that they have done is set up a makeshift camp with their hands out demanding any resource company that walks by them cough up cash. In other words: They are a marketing gimmick and are in it for the money! The CBC lied to us about who actually funded the blockade. It wasn’t the Wet’suwet’en First Nation like they claimed – it was actually a heavily indebted company that was funded by Tides, the Pembina Institute, and many other eco-radical organizations. #KeeanBexte #Pipeline #FakeNews #Alberta #CBC #RebelMedia #CBCPromotesFakeNativeBand #FirstNation #Indigenous #CdnPoli

Westray Mine disaster - The Last Shift - the fifth estate
On May 9th 1992 an explosion ripped apart the Westray Coal Mine in Pictou County, Nova Scotia killing 26 miners. The Fifth Estate and the Journal co-produced this story about the tragedy. The mine was opened the year before despite misgivings that the geology of the area was unstable and prone to large volumes of methane gas. The Federal Government was reluctant help the private company starting the mine after numerous reports cited geological concerns. But after heavy lobbying the mine opened. From the beginning miners complained of safety issues, rock falls, high methane gas levels and large amounts of coal dust. The company's output and quality of coal were disappointing. Inspectors visited the mine 49 times. Critics claim inspectors didn't take the conditions seriously enough and that the company was negligent. Government officials say it's not at fault. But the miners say even if the mine were to reopen they would never go back.Linden MacIntyre hosts.

Britannia Mining Museum, BC Canada
Explore the old underground copper mine at Britannia Beach, near Vancouver BC Canada. Take a guided tour through the old tunnels, blasted out of solid rock and experience the working life of a hard rock miner. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia... Britannia Beach is a small unincorporated community in the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District located approximately 55 kilometers north of Vancouver, British Columbia on the Sea-to-Sky Highway on Howe Sound. It has a population of about 300. The community first developed between 1900 and 1904 as the residential area for the staff of the Britannia Mining and Smelting Company. The residential areas and the mining operation were physically interrelated, resulting in coincidental mining and community disasters through its history. Today, the town is host to the Britannia Mine Museum, formerly known as the British Columbia Museum of Mining, on the grounds of the old Britannia Mines. The mine's old concentrator facilities, used to separate copper ore from its containing rock, are a National Historic Site of Canada Copper mine (1900-1974) A copper discovery on Britannia Mountain by Dr. A. A. Forbes in 1888 led to the development of the Britannia Mine. In 1899, a mining engineer named George Robinson was able to convince financial backers that the property had great potential. For several years, companies were formed, merged and dissolved in efforts to raise capital. The Britannia Mining and Smelting Company, a branch of the Howe Sound Company, finally commenced mining in the early 1900s, and owned the site for the next sixty years. The first ore was shipped to the Crofton Smelter on Vancouver Island in 1904, and the mine achieved full production in 1905. A town had grown up around the mine and a Post Office opened on January 1, 1907 where it was named after the nearby mine. In 1912 John Wedderburn Dunbar Moodie was authorized to upgrade the operation and increase production from the mine. Improvements in the mineral separation processes stimulated plans for a new mill (No. 2), which was completed in 1916 and was capable of producing 2000 tons of ore per day. The onset of World War I increased the demand for copper and the price rose sharply. On March 21, 1915 an avalanche destroyed the Jane Camp. Sixty men, women and children were killed and it was a terrible blow to the tiny community. Construction began immediately on a new, safer town at the 2,200-foot (670 m) level above the Britannia Beach site. This portion of the community became known as the "Town site" or "Mount Sheer". In March 1921 during a brief period when the mine was shut down, mill No. 2 burnt to the ground. On October 28, 1921 after a full day of torrential rain, a massive flood destroyed much of that portion of the community and mine operations that existed on the lower beach area. 50 of 110 homes were destroyed and thirty-seven men, women and children lost their lives. The flood was caused because the mining company had dammed up a portion of the Creek during the construction of a railway, and when this dam gave way the town below was flooded. Carleton Perkins Browning directed the reconstruction of this portion of the community and the new No. 3 mill, which stands today. Being an isolated, close knit community which could only be accessed by boat, life in both of Britannia's towns was never dull. Facilities included libraries, club rooms, billiard rooms, swimming pools, tennis courts and even bowling. A thriving social calendar saw sporting events, theatrical productions, dances, movies and parties held throughout the year. The mine boomed in the late 1920s and early 1930s, becoming the largest producer of copper in the British Commonwealth by 1929, under the management of the mine manager C.P. Browning. In the 1940s there were talks to build an artist village in Britannia's hills, but that plan did not proceed. During the Great Depression, miners unionized in 1946 and suffered through their first strike. Low copper prices saw the Britannia Mine Company reduced to seven employees, and in 1959 it went into liquidation. In 1963 the Anaconda Mining Company bought the property and production continued for the next eleven years. 300 employees managed to produce 60,000 tons of concentrate each year. Ferries services stopped around May 1965 after the highway and railway connections had been constructed. The connections made it easier to transport the copper, but high operating costs and taxes eventually forced the mine to close on November 1, 1974. The company did not attempt to clean up the mine and chemical wastes that it produced, since environmental protection laws had not yet been enacted and enforcement of the Fisheries Act was never applied On April 1, 1975 the BC Museum of Mining was opened to the public, and was designated as a National Historic Site in 1988. The following year, 1989, the Museum site was designated a British Columbia Historic Landmark.
