I do not own this video and am sharing it for educational purposes only. A dam that burst at an iron-ore mine in south-eastern Brazil on Thursday killed at least 15 people, devastated a nearby town with mudslides and leaving officials in the remote region scrambling to assess casualties. Forty-five people were still missing after the disaster at the Germano mine near the town of Mariana in Minas Gerais state, a local union told the G1 news portal. The mine is operated by Samarco, a joint venture between the Anglo-Australian mining giant BHB Billiton and the Brazilian company Vale.

Brazil Mining Disaster Severely Pollutes Local Environment
 
01:08
The collapse of an iron ore tailings dam in the southeast Brazilian state of Minas Gerais last Thursday, which left at least 11 people dead and 12 others missing, has caused widespread environmental destruction, threatening the supply of drinking water and endangering wildlife. Over 62 million cubic meters of water and mining waste was leaked from the dam and flooded into farms and villages many miles downstream, causing severe damage to water resources and the local ecology. Officials said as many 3,200,000 people have been left without drinking water and are relying on aid from outside to maintain their daily lives. Authorities said they are still struggling to tally up the total scale of the damage from the disaster. "We are working on the water quality assessment right now, and we will come up with a report for evaluation. This evaluation will be done by the Minas Gerais’scientific research institution and the Brazilian national research institution. People have realized that this water basin cannot recover quickly from the contamination. It will take long a long time," said Coronel Romilson Caldeira, civil defense secretary in Minas Gerais. Brazilian biologists warned that the damage caused by the accident could permanently scar the environment and will greatly affect the local fishery and agriculture industries.

BIGGEST And MOST EXPENSIVE Gemstones Ever Discovered!
 
11:42
Check out the BIGGEST And MOST EXPENSIVE Gemstones Ever Discovered! From the most valuable diamonds and emeralds to the largest minerals, this top 10 list of super expensive crystals has some of the greatest discoveries! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "REAL Mermaid Sightings Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/ChM0CBRmVsM Watch our "10 Sea Monsters ATTACKING A Boat!" video here: https://youtu.be/0XROvoPCDNc Watch our "STRANGEST Animals People Keep As Pets!" video here: https://youtu.be/OMa96nPqz-Y 10. The Cullinan Diamond (530 Carats) The Cullinan Diamond was discovered in Gauteng, South Africa, in 1905. The large blue-white stone was just 30 feet from the surface and was extracted by a miner with a pocket knife. Easy peasy!! He took it to the office to have it measured, and it weighed 3,106.75 carats, about 621 grams, which made it by far the largest diamond to have been found at the time. 9. The Golden Jubilee (545.67 Carats) Weighing in at 545.67 carats, the Golden Jubilee diamond is the largest cut and faceted diamond in the world. From images, it looks to be a golden orange color, but it's actually graded as a fancy yellow-brown stone. 8. Star of Adam (1,404 Carats) In 2016, the world’s largest blue sapphire was unearthed in Sri Lanka, weighing in at a massive 1,404 Carats- which is the equivalent to almost 10 ounces. It came from a mine in the southern city of Ratnapura- a place that is known as the “city of gems” because of the large numbers of precious stones that are found there. Still, this was a major find- the Sri Lankan gem industry is thought to be worth about 103 million dollars annually, but this one was valued at more than 100 million dollars just by itself!! 7. The Rajaratna Ruby (2,475 Carats) The Rajaratna ruby was first unveiled in 1986 and, at the time, was thought to be the largest ruby in the world. It's had an eventful history, and was thought to have originated in either one of India's two well-known ruby and sapphire regions during medieval times- Kalinga and Kalpur… or Mogok in Burma- places synonymous with discoveries of large gems. 6. The Pearl of Puerto (75 lb) In 2016 the world’s largest pearl was found in the Philippines in the most unlikely of places- underneath a fisherman’s bed, where it had been for at least 10 years. According to the man, he had found it while out fishing when his boat’s anchor had become tangled with a giant clam, and he had to swim down to dislodge it. The pearl is one foot wide, 2.2 feet long, and weighs 75 pounds- which means it could be worth as much as 100 million dollars! 5. Sergio Diamond (3,167 Carats) While it’s not worth as much as other diamonds that have been found, the Sergio Diamond is something quite special- and is thought to have been the largest rough diamond to have ever been discovered. 4. Olympic Australis (17,000 Carats) Australia is undoubtedly the home of opals, and in 1956, at the ‘eight-mile' mining field in the town of Coober Pedy, miners found the largest ever to be discovered. It was dug from a cavity about 30 feet beneath the surface, and they couldn't believe their eyes when they realized what it was. Weighing a massive 17,000 carats, it's 11 inches long and 4.5 inches high. 3. 125West Ruby (18,696 Carats) Rubies are a type of corundum mineral- given their name because of their deep, rich, red hue. They come in a variety of colors, though, with red ones always being called a ruby, and other types being called sapphires. They are the second hardest known minerals, after diamonds, so great care has to be taken when turning rough stones into polished pieces. 2. The American Golden Topaz (22,892 Carats) Topaz is well known for its ability to form huge crystals, but the even the miners of Minas Gerais in Brazil were surprised in the early '80s when they dug up some particularly amazing stones. 1. The Bahia Emerald (1.7m Carats) And of course no list of giant stones would be complete without this big guy! This is the biggest rough gemstone that has ever been found- the Bahia Emerald. It was found in a mine in Bahia, Brazil, in 2001, and is a rock that contains 9 crystals- one of which is the largest single emerald crystal to have ever been discovered. In total, the Bahia rock is thought to contain at least 1.7 million carats, and is estimated to be worth up to 400 million dollars.

For story suggestions please contact [email protected] A mining accident killed at least three people in Minas Gerais state of Brazil on early Wednesday. According to Fox News Latino, the accident took place in a mine belonging to the Heculano mining company in Itabirito at about 8 a.m. as a number of workers were carrying out maintenance duties at a dam. During the work the dam suddenly collapsed, causing a landslide that buried a passenger car and a bulldozer completely. Two trucks were also partially covered by mud, according to Estadao. It was reported by R7 that at least eight workers were initially trapped in the mud, but five were later rescued alive. At least three workers were killed in the accident, according to Fox News Latino.

Struggle for help a year after Brazil dam burst
 
03:46
(28 Oct 2016) Spreading below lush mountains, this valley is rich in mineral wealth, including gold and one of the largest iron ore deposits on the planet - the discoveries of which turned the area into Brazil's mining country and the birthplace of one of the world's top mineral producers. But to some residents, the industry turned on them a year ago, when a dam holding back a giant reservoir of mine waste broke open, unleashing a flow of mud that killed 19 people, buried entire towns and polluted hundreds of kilometres of rivers, streams and forest land. The 1,200 people made homeless when nearly 500 houses, clinics, schools and bridges were wrecked still live in temporary housing, waiting to be moved back to new settlements. "This place used to be a paradise. It was the most beautiful thing you've ever seen," Geraldo de Oliveira said as he walked on a tree-dotted hill. A waterfall on the other side of the hill is now running clay-red in the village of Paracatu. Families whose lives were upended by the tragedy of 5 November 2015 say they feel betrayed by the company behind it - Samarco - a joint venture between two of the world's mining giants, Vale of Brazil and BHP Billiton of Australia. Most residents are still waiting for Samarco to pay for their lost possessions and build new towns for them. They also are fighting the construction of an emergency dyke that would flood part of what is left of the village worst hit when the mine burst at the Fundao iron mine. The company and government say the barrier is needed to prevent more mineral waste from spilling into the Doce River. As much as people blame Samarco, they know mining has created thousands of jobs and provided millions in tax revenues, underscoring the influence that multinational corporations often have in otherwise poor, rural areas where they operate. After the collapse of the basin, local media reported that 13 federal lawmakers and 20 state representatives appointed to special committees to oversee recovery efforts had received sizeable donations from Vale, the huge Brazilian company that began in the now devastated valley 400 kilometres (250 miles) north of Rio de Janeiro. Over four decades, Samarco and Vale built clout in the area, creating thousands of jobs in the municipality of Mariana and in the neighboring towns and villages that were struck the hardest. In 2014, Samarco and Vale paid Mariana 68.9 million reals (about 26 million US dollars) in royalties - nearly twice the amount the city raised in taxes. Only a few months before Brazil's worst environmental disaster, Samarco had been hailed as a model company by a prestigious business school and mining magazine in the region for its efforts on saving water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In Bento Rodrigues, a village in Mariana now submerged under a thick layer of mud, people described occasional handouts from Samarco for street fairs and even private parties. Prosecutors brought manslaughter and environmental damage charges against 21 Brazilian and foreign mining executives on 20 October, saying the waste dam that failed was a ticking-time bomb. "The Fundao dam showed clear signs that it could break," said Jose Adercio Leite Sampaio, a federal prosecutor in the attorney general's office in Minas Gerais state. That office also has filed a 43 billion US dollar civil suit seeking social, environmental and economic compensation over the failure of the dam, likening the disaster to BP's Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Brazil's environment ministry, meanwhile, has levied seven fines totaling 292.8 million reals (about 94 million US dollars) over the disaster and the government of Minas Gerais has imposed fines of 112 million reals (36 million US dollars).

(TURN ENGLISH SUBTITLES ON!) I have decided to add English subtitles to this video - which was already here on YouTube in Portuguese - as a contribution to increase the reach of this information to a global scale. The news report that follows allows for a better glimpse of what most of our media, biased and manipulative, hides from us even internally. What takes place at this moment in Mariana, Minas Gerais (and ever spreading) is grave and little effort seems to be going on for us to be aware of the real situation. The least we deserve are answers! Let's keep our watch. Here's the link to the original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blwpRJqKXto. Its description reads: "News report on the tragedy in the city of Mariana, Minas Gerais [Brazil], led by Proteste Já ["Protest Now"], exhibited on the show CQC, Band.

A reportagem que se segue permite melhor vislumbrar aquilo que a maior parte da nossa mídia, enviesada e manipuladora, esconde de nós mesmo aqui internamente.

Brazilian Dam Collapses, Killing at Least One
 
01:20
At least one person was confirmed killed and 30 others injured Thursday in a dam collapse in a mining area in southeastern Brazil, said a Brazilian official report. About 10 miners were working at the scene when the accident occurred. The collapse caused a mud flood, spreading to a town eight kilometers away from the site. In less than 20 minutes, the flood rushed into a the residential area without a warning. Many residents did not have enough time to escape. "Everything happened so quickly that I barely had time to save my kid, not even my property. As I know, some kids did not make it," said Claudio, a survivor. The dam belongs to Samarco, a mining company, which issued a brief statement after the accident, saying it "could not currently confirm the cause or size of the incident." The company also warned people, except for teams involved in the emergency rescue, should stay away from the site for the sake of safety. Local police closed the road to the town.

#short #drama #kids On November 5, 2015, the largest socio-ecological disaster in the history of Brazil occurred in the Minas Gerais region. Due to the dam breakthrough by a private mining company, several settlements were flooded, as a result of which thousands of people died, were injured or were left without shelter. After the tragedy, the victims were moved into temporary housing. Memories of a happy past are still bright, but you need to continue to live, despite the loss, and find a new stimulus for existence. The past will not be erased from memory. The future is possible as long as hope lives.

Officials in south-eastern Minas Gerais state say one person is confirmed dead. But there are reports that up to 16 have died and others are missing. Rivers of thick red mud surged down the valleys of the hilly area outside the old colonial city of Mariana. It engulfed cars and lorries, and destroyed homes. Authorities in Mariana said the dam had ruptured on Thursday afternoon and sent torrents of mud and debris into the small town of Bento Rodrigues, about 7km (four miles) away. The BBC's Julia Dias Carneiro in Rio de Janeiro said the area affected is home to about 500 people. The rescue operation has been hampered by fears of landslides but helicopters have taken several stranded people to safety, she adds. Authorities have warned that the water mixed with residue from mining operations could be toxic. A spokesman for the Samarco mining company, which owns the dam, said the cause of the breach was not yet known.

Dam bursts kills several people in southeastern Brazil
 
00:52
Collapsed dams at mine in southeastern Brazil have killed at least two people, with more than dozen people believed to be missing. A flood of slurry from an iron ore mine engulfed houses and vehicles in and around the village of Bento Rodrigues, in the state of Minas Gerais, on Thursday. The mine is managed by Samarco, a joint venture between Portugal’s Vale and Australian mining giant BHP Billiton. The spill did not contain any toxic material, Samarco President Ricardo Vescovi said on Friday. Hundreds of people who had to flee their homes were on Friday staying at a gymnasium in Bento Rodrigues, which had been converted into a temporary shelter. Officials have said two people were killed, four injured and 13 were missing. Local media are reporting higher numbers. Heavy rains were hampering salvage efforts, with rescue teams continuing to search for people who might have been swept away or stranded.

Authorities expect the death toll to rise as they continue to search for missing victims. Heavy rains which have been lashing southeastern Brazil since December, sparked a number of mudslides on Tuesday. So far six people were killed. In the city of Ouro Preto, located in Brazil's largest mining state, a landslide wiped out a bus station, killing two taxi drivers who were parked outside the building. [Romero Cesar Gomes, Geologist]: "(The landslide covered) around 40 meters. So the dimensions of this event are of a huge magnitude." The death toll in the city, which currently stands at six, is expected to rise as authorities said another person remains missing. The state of Minas Gerais has borne the brunt of the heavy rains with authorities putting some 50 towns in the state on high alert for mudslides. Other landslides in the state of Minas Gerais led to road closures and caused severe traffic jams. Authorities say the municipality of Nova Friburgo, in Rio de Janeiro state, was also hit by landslides that destroyed some homes. Last year, heavy rains in Rio de Janeiro created rivers of mud and flood water that battered a handful of towns, killing at least 900 people and uprooting thousands of families.

Dam burst spills toxic mud into Brazilian town, killing 17 - TomoNews
 
00:58
MARIANA, BRAZIL — Dozens are feared dead after a dam holding back waste water from an iron ore mine in rural Brazil broke, spilling toxic mud into a town. The New York Times reports that homes and vehicles in the small mining town of Mariana in Minas Gerais were smothered in thick rivers of toxic mud on Thursday after a dam collapse around 4:20 p.m. sent industrial effluent four miles down the mountain. More than 600 people from the nearby town of Bento Rodrigues had to be evacuated as a result. The dam, owned by Brazilian Samarco -- a joint venture between iron ore miners Vale of Brazil and Australia's BHP -- ruptured for unknown reasons. The surface area of the spillage -- mining waste made up of metal fillings, water, and chemicals -- was equivalent to 10 football fields, according to AFP. At least 17 were killed in the disaster, with more than 50 injured. Reuters reports that 45 others still missing. Search and rescue efforts are ongoing, but teams are hampered by the lack of electricity and difficulty in accessing affected areas. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Mining Stories | Silke Huysmans & Hannes Dereere | Dublin Theatre Festival 18
 
01:39
On the 5th of November 2015, a dam containing toxic mining waste collapsed in the mountains of the Brazilian mining region of Minas Gerais. A devastating flood of mud destroyed several villages and killed 19 people before flowing into the four hundred mile long river Rio Doce. In a region where more than three out of four people work in the mining industry, the disaster had profound environmental and social consequences. Silke Huysmans grew up in Minas Gerais, close to the place where the disaster occurred. After twenty years away, she returned to Brazil accompanied by Hannes Dereere in order to speak to people affected by the tragedy and try to understand its far reaching consequences. The duo later conducted parallel interviews in Europe with specialists in economics and neurology. Each interviewee tells the story of the disaster from their own perspective, with their own nuances and points of interest. Mining Stories is not a detective story or a reconstruction of the disaster, but an intriguing documentary theatre performance that journeys through a diverse collection of personal stories crossing topics such as memory, politics, religion and storytelling.

Dam burst at mining site devastates Brazilian town
 
01:57
A dam holding back waste water from an iron ore mine in the southeastern Minas Gerais state has burst, devastating a nearby town with mudslides and leaving officials in the remote region scrambling to assess casualties. "The number of missing is going to surpass 40 but that is not official," Adao Severino Junior, fire chief in the city of Mariana, told AFP news agency on Thursday. Civil defence authorities told Reuters that casualties were still not confirmed and that numbers reported in Brazilian media were speculative. A city hall official confirmed one death and 16 injuries, adding that dozens more were missing. Rescue crews continued to search the muddy waters after nightfall. Brazilian army units nearby stood ready to help the search and rescue effort and the minister of national integration, Gilberto Occhi, planned to visit the state on Friday to provide assistance, according to a note from the presidency. The mining company Samarco, a joint venture between top iron ore miners Brazil's Vale and Australia's BHP, said in a statement it had not yet determined why the dam burst or the extent of the disaster at its Germano mine near the town of Mariana in Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. Civil defence authorities in Mariana said it was evacuating about 600 people to higher ground from the village of Bento Rodrigues, where television footage showed dozens of homes destroyed by the mudslide. A car rested on top of a wall where the roof of a building had been ripped off. They said the flood had also reached another village further down the hill, called Paracatú de Baixo, and that inhabitants there were being evacuated. The dam was holding tailings, a mining waste product of metal filings, water and occasionally chemicals. It was located near the Gualaxo do Norte river, adding to fears of potential water contamination.

Brazil dam burst leaves ecological disaster
 
05:01
(1 Dec 2015) A dam which burst earlier this month has caused a major environmental disaster in Brazil and affected hundreds of thousands of people in nearby communities. A wave of mud spilled into the Doce River on November 5 killing an estimated nine tons of fish, polluting 850 kilometers (530 miles) of waterways and contaminating the source of drinking water for hundreds of thousands of people in Minas Gerais and Espirito Santo states. At least 13 people also died in the incident. Local indigenous fisherman from the Krenak community, Ererre, has lamented that "our river is dead" - he's one of the thousands of people who have relied on the river as a source of food. The mud swept along by the bursting dam, destroyed Bento Rodrigues, a village that was home to about 600 people. At least thirteen people died in the disaster, and another 10 remain missing. Nearly a month after the dam burst, the effects of the disaster at the Samarco iron mine continue to ripple outward, affecting hundreds of thousands of people in two states. After obliterating the towns, the tide of mud and debris surged forward, blanketing a wide swath of land and cascading into the Doce River where communities of fishermen were affected and area now facing the uncertainty of the future. The mud devastated wildlife, despite efforts by local fishermen in Colatina to move more than 110 species of fish out of the contaminated waters and into nearby lakes. The mud also compromised the drinking water reserves for residents of cities in Minas Gerais and the neighboring Espirito Santo State. The situation is considered by experts the worst environmental disaster in Brazil related to mining activity. Federal and state governments in Brazil say they will sue iron ore miner Samarco and its co-owners BHP Billiton and Vale for $ 5.2 billion for the damage. Brazil's environment minister Izabella Teixeira said that the companies will be sued to deal with the consequences of the burst dam over the next 10 years. She said the price tag could still be increased. BHP and Vale announced the creation of a fund to deal with tragedy, but didn't mention the $5.2 billion figure or the 10-year plan. In a statement, Vale's CEO Murilo Ferreira said the company will seek to revive the river.

Brazil: Local Fishermen Bury Fish Killed in Mining Disaster

Samarco, the Brazilian mining company partially responsible for the mudslide that killed at least nine people and wreaked untold ecological damages in Minas Gerais, has announced that it will pay local fishermen US$27 a day to bury dead fish. At least one local resident interviewed by teleSUR, however, believes that the fishermen are being used to improve Samarco’s image and doubts that they will ever get paid. Immense quantities of mud have already reached the sea, causing widespread environmental and social damage. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/brazil-local-fishermen-bury-fish-killed-in-mining-disaster/

Brazil Hits Mining Companies with Civil Lawsuit for Dam Collapse
 
00:47
Mining companies Vale SA and BHP Billiton have been served with a $43.5 billion lawsuit for the collapse of a damn last year. Brazilian prosecutors have equated the disaster, which killed 19 people, to BP's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico from 2010. The 359-page suit is the result of a six-month investigation for the collapse of a dam in November 2015. The lawsuit, brought to a Brazilian court by independent federal prosecutors, also involves allegations against the state of Minas Gerais and the federal government. The civil action comes after the Brazilian government reached a settlement with Samarco, Vale and BHP in March. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/cDNrzJIzmT0/us-brazil-damburst-prosecutors-idUSKCN0XU2AH http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Brazil Dam Collapse
 
02:01
The number of confirmed deaths from the collapse of a dam in Brazil has risen to 17, according to an update from mining giant BHP Billiton. Two people working on the dam, which held back waste water from iron ore mining, are unaccounted for, BHP said. BHP owns the dam with Brazil's Vale via a joint-venture, Samarco. A court has frozen their assets in the country. The firms have appointed a New York law firm to investigate the cause of the dam rupture, BHP's statement said. A federal court has ruled that the potential damages from the disaster could be about 20.2bn reais ($5.2bn; £3.4bn). The companies' assets were frozen amid concerns that Samarco does not have enough resources to cover the cost of damages and compensation. BHP's statement said the court had ordered Samarco to put 2bn reais into a court-managed bank account within 30 days. A daily fine of 1.5m reais applies for non-compliance with this deadline. On 28 November, the Brazilian government filed a lawsuit against Samarco for the environmental damage caused by the accident. Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira said the accident in the south-eastern state of Minas Gerais had "a huge impact from an environmental point of view". The village of Bento Rodrigues was totally destroyed and the mud generated by the 5 November dam collapse polluted drinking water over a vast area. The money will be used to compensate the victims and help repair the environment.
