Memories of Red: Gold Mining in Romania's Rosia Montana
Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/romania-hungary-mining-toxic-waste-rosia-montana-gold Pulitzer Center grantees Dimiter Kenarov and Nadia Shira Cohen traveled to the Rosia Montana region of Romania, where plans are underway to open the biggest open-pit gold and silver mine in Europe. One of the oldest mining sites in the world, Rosia Montana village offers archeologists and historians valuable insights into its 2,000-year mining tradition. Should the mining plans be approved, the surrounding mountains and nearby valley will be transformed into four gigantic mining pits and a dam holding cyanide-laced tailings, which could lead to a bigger environmental liability than the toxic sludge in Hungary in case of design failure. The mining debate has polarized Rosia Montana that no compromise seems possible in the near future. Dimiter Kenarov and Nadia Shira Cohen wade through the hidden toxic waste in European Union's newer member states, where EU's high environmental standards are still very difficult to enforce.

Will you and your fellow builders collaborate successfully, creating laws to guide player actions, finding a balance that takes from the ecosystem without damaging it? Or will the world be destroyed by short-sighted choices that pollute the environment in exchange for immediate resource gains? Or, do players act too slowly, and the world is consumed by a disaster that could have been avoided if you developed the right technology? In Eco, you must find a balance as a group if the world is to survive. A world-survival game Eco is a survival game in a global sense, where it is not just the individual or group who is threatened, but the world itself. The world of Eco will be home to a population of thousands of simulated plants and animals of dozens of species, each living out their lives on a server running 24 hours a day, growing, feeding and reproducing, with their existence highly dependent on other species. Enter humans into this equation, and things get complicated. It is the role of players to thrive in this environment by using resources from the world to eat, build, discover, learn and invent. However, every resource they take affects the environment it is taken from, and without careful planning and understanding of the ecosystem, lands can become deforested and polluted, habitats destroyed, and species left extinct. In the extreme, the food supply of the ecosystem can be destroyed, along with all human life on it, resulting in server-wide perma-death. Eco is a game where the player’s actions have meaningful consequences. Everything you do affects the ecosystem, and players can destroy their food supply and world (server-wide permadeath) Create a player-run government to make decisions as a group, proposing and voting on laws Use data gathered from the world to propose and vote on laws as a group. Debate with scientific argumentation. Create a player-run economy that allows you to sell not only good but services in the form of server-enforced contracts (simulating a player driven quest system). PvP takes the form of a player-run criminal justice system. Breaking the player-made laws can result in arrest and punishment. Your food level determines your skill-increase rate, making food very important and tying players directly to the ecosystem from which it comes. A game with goals higher than entertainment.

Bougainville: Long Han Blong Yumi (It's in our hands)
BOUGAINVILLE: LONG HAN BLONG YUMI (IT'S IN OUR HANDS): Bougainville fought a brutal Civil War from 1989-1997 which claimed the lives of up to 20 000 people, and tens of thousands more were displaced. At the core of the conflict was the Panguna mine, a massive copper and gold mine that had serious socio-economic, environmental and cultural impacts. 20 years later, Bougainville is planning for a referendum for independence from Papua New Guinea. Simultaneously, there is a heated debate about re-opening the Panguna mine, based on the argument that independence requires economic self-sufficiency, and mining is the only way to achieve that. As shown by our report Voices of Bougainville, many local communities do not want to re-open the Panguna mine, and our research shows that this is not the only development option for Bougainville. Bougainville can pursue a development path that is more sustainable and broad-based, and this film explores that option. Bougainville: Long Han Blong Yumi (It's in our hands) is being published along with a report, Growing Bougainville's Future. The report explores many of the same issues as the movie, and together we hope they contribute to facilitating an informed debate on Bougainville's development options.

Blue Grouse Mine on Vancouver island!
Exploring a large abandoned mine with special guests on Vancouver island called the Blue Grouse! The Blue Grouse mine is located on the south side of Cowichan Lake, 4.8 kilometres northwest of Honeymoon Bay. Mineralized outcrops on the property were first located between 1900 and 1910. The mine was abandoned in 1960, reportedly leaving some reserves. The workings were rehabilitated in 1979 by Corrie Copper Ltd. Copper mineralization of mineable grade was reported to be present at the 1100 level. The workings were backfilled sometime between 1987 and 1989. The Sunnyside workings (092C 108) are located 800 metres to the south. The Cowichan Lake area is at the eastern end of the Cowichan uplift, one of a series of major geanticlines on Vancouver Island. The area is underlain by pyroclastic, sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Paleozoic Sicker Group, the Mississippian to Permian Buttle Lake Group, the Upper Triassic Vancouver Group and the Lower Jurassic Bonanza Group which have been intruded by Triassic gabbros (informally named Mount Hall) and Early to Middle Jurassic Island Plutonic Suite rocks, and overlapped by Upper Cretaceous sediments of the Nanaimo Group. The Vancouver Group comprises pillow and massive basalt, volcaniclastics, tuffs and breccias of the Karmutsen Formation; siltstone, argillite and micrite of the Quatsino Formation and limestone, tuff and argillite of the Parson Bay Formation. The property is underlain by Karmutsen Formation volcanics and Parson Bay Formation sediments. Sediments of the Nanaimo Group and volcanics of the Bonanza Group occur near the property. These are cut by numerous Jurassic feldspar and feldspar-pyroxene porphyry dykes related to the Bonanza Group. The orebodies occur in limestone and tuffaceous members which are folded in a series of overturned folds. The beds are displaced by a series of thrust faults which have a general east strike and dips of 10 to 20 degrees south. Garnet-epidote-actinolite skarns are developed in limy tuff, limy sediments and limestone, apparently interbedded with the upper portions of Karmutsen Formation basalts. Mineralization was present in ten small tabular sulphide zones and consisted of chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, pyrite and lesser magnetite and sphalerite. The main orebody, hosted in volcanic rocks, was the G-H. The ore consisted of a skarn zone which formed a southwest plunging pipe-like body extending from the surface to the 335 metre level. The mineralization comprised chalcopyrite, pyrite and pyrrhotite irregularly occurring as stringers and small masses. The orebody was displaced to the northeast, the top block moved 305 metres to the north and 46 to 61 metres to the east in relation to the lower block. The E ore body, 300 metres due south of the G-H, was a 3 to 4 metre wide tuffaceous horizon mineralized with pyrrhotite. The pyrrhotite almost completely replaced the bedded rock and was veined with small stringers and irregular masses of chalcopyrite and pyrite. Small grains of hematite were noted locally. The mine was in production from 1917 to 1919 and from 1956 to 1960. From 249,298 tonnes of rock, 6,814,623 kilograms of copper, 2,508,644 grams of silver and 218 grams of gold were produced. Exploration in 1989 located several gossanous zones in the southwest portion of the property. A 1-metre chip sample (109075) of intermediate tuff with copper staining from the BGN-4 site assayed 0.7 per cent copper and 0.043 gram per tonne gold (Assessment Report 19387). Sampling results ranged from 0.0007 to 1.1824 per cent copper and 0.001 to 0.043 gram per tonne gold (Assessment Report 19387). In 2002, Ber-Can Environmental Resources Inc. completed a program geochemical sampling of the Blue Grouse tailings and tailings ponds for the purpose of developing a proprietary process for the clean up of mine tailings and mill tailings.
Lost in Migration: Copper's threat to salmon
This video looks at the harmful effects a massive mine development like Pebble would have on salmon in Bristol Bay's most productive sockeye spawning rivers. Scientists know that minute amounts of copper in salmon streams (as low as 3 parts per billions) can throw off salmon's ability to navigate and detect prey. And they have deep concerns about how the mine will alter the fragile hydrology of the ecosystem. "The science is clear, if developed the Pebble copper and gold mine would create a dark future for Bristol Bay's world class fishery."

2011 11 08 TV News Story about Fish Lake
On the afternoon of Monday November 7 2011 the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency announced that the agency has agreed to Taseko Mines Ltd.'s demand for a new environmental review of its proposed "New Prosperity" gold and copper mine located west of Williams Lake BC in the heart of Tsilhqot'in Nation territory. This decision puts Fish Lake and the surrounding lands and waters once again at risk from being poisoned by mine waste from the proposed open pit mine.

Protect Bristol Bay: Environment
Bristol Bay is home to one of the last great sockeye salmon fisheries in the world, as well as 31 Alaska Native tribes who have thrived for thousands of years on the bounty of the pristine lands and waters that support their traditional way of life and sustainable economy. Bristol Bay also supports a commercial fishery that started in 1883, and continues to produce almost half of the global supply of wild sockeye salmon. This fishery supports thousands of sustainable jobs across the nation and contributes millions annually to the nation’s economy. Unfortunately, Bristol Bay is also home to multiple gold & copper and other mineral deposits that if developed would devastate the fragile and pristine ecosystem and the people who depend on it for their traditional way of life and livelihood. The largest proposed mine, at the Pebble deposit, is located precisely at the headwaters of the Nushagak and Kvichak river systems, the two most productive salmon rivers on the face of the planet. If developed by foreign mining interests, Pebble would be the largest open-pit, acid-generating mine in the world – so large it would be visible from space. Pebble would only produce ore for about 50 years, and leave Bristol Bay with over 10 billion tons of toxic waste to deal with in perpetuity. Alternatively, if Bristol Bay is protected from destructive large-scale mining, Bristol Bay will continue to sustainably yield the world's greatest supply of sockeye salmon … in perpetuity. At the request of Bristol Bay tribal governments that the EPA take action to protect the Bristol Bay Watershed from large-scale mining, the EPA conducted a three year scientific review of Bristol Bay. This culminated in the Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment that was derived from Pebble’s own plans, peer-reviewed science, public hearings, and two public-comment periods. The Watershed Assessment clearly demonstrated that the Pebble Mine cannot move forward without causing irreparable damage to Bristol Bay’s fishery and the people who depend on it. Based on this assessment and the more than one million people who weighed in to support EPA taking action, EPA initiated the Clean Water Act 404(c) review process that would permit the agency to "prohibit, restrict, or deny" the proposed mine. EPA then issued its Proposed Determination on July 18, 2014, which suggests that EPA "restrict the discharge of dredged or fill material related to mining" such that Bristol Bay would lose no more than 1,100 acres of wetlands, lakes, and ponds or 5 miles of streams where fish have been documented (or 19 miles of streams where no fish have been documented). Unfortunately, the contamination or destruction of waterways in such an interconnected ecosystem often carries a devastating ripple effect that could spread beyond the disposal site. The only sure way to protect Bristol Bay is to completely stop mines like Pebble. Submit public comments here to help protect the world’s last great salmon runs and salmon cultures: http://www2.epa.gov/bristolbay/public-involvement-bristol-bay-404c-process#comments Public comment period ends September 19, 2014.

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.

Economic Benefits & Environmental Impacts of Offshore Phosphate Mining in Namibia
by: Alna Dall One Exclusive Phosphorous is the eleventh most common element in the world. It helps in the creation of our DNA, it is needed for your body to form bones and teeth. It is also an essential part of cell growth in plants. It can be found everywhere in products like carbonated drinks, detergents but more importantly, fertilizers. Although it occurs naturally in substances such as bone, ash, urine and animal manure, in order to keep up with the global demand for phosphorous, it has been mined for centuries from phosphate rock - a natural and non-renewable resource. There a few sites along the Namibian coast where large quantities of phosphate rock have been detected on the seabed floor...but mines have been unable to start dredging, due to a 18 month moratorium from Government. Stakeholders from the fishing industry demanded extensive research to be done on the impact such mining would have on not only the environment, but the fishing industry as well. We speak to Hans Huckstedt from LL Namibia Phosphates about the outcomes of these studies, the economic benefits and perceived pitfalls of phosphate mining, as well as THEIR role in a form of mining that has never been attempted before.

Heidi Kritz, Brower Youth Awards 2016
For nearly half her life, Heidi Kritz has been working to protect Alaska’s Bristol Bay from the Pebble Mine project. The proposed copper and gold mining project threatens the bay, which is the largest salmon fishery in the world and is critical to the local economy, ecological stability, and native peoples way of life. Kritz and her community have fought tirelessly against the project both within Alaska and the Lower 48 states. She has helped organize rallies, worked on a massive letter writing campaign against the mine project that ultimately gathered more than 6,000 voices, and has helped mobilize a new generation of regional activists by working with high school students in tribal schools. Kritz’s leadership has added momentum to a decade-long fight to protect the Bristol Bay watershed, and she plans keep up the fight to defend the land and her home.

The people intervene Imperial Metals Red Chris Mine meeting
The people intervene Imperial Metals Red Chris Mine meeting on unceded Cost Salish Territory. Imperial Metals: Is Mining Worth The Risk? Imperial Metals Mount Polley open pit mine breached on August 4, 2014. The Mount Polley tailings breach is the largest environmental disaster in BC history. The breach discharged 24.4 million cubic meters of wastewater, tailings slurry, and construction waste into Polley Lake, Hazeltine Creek, Quesnel Lake, Quesnel River, and the Fraser River watershed: -10 million cubic metres of wastewater -13.8 million cubic metres of tailings slurry containing nickel, lead, arsenic, zinc, copper, vanadium, cadmium, cobalt, phosphorous, antimony, manganese, mercury, and selenium -0.6 million cubic metres of construction waste from the dam The Quesnel Lake watershed is host to the second largest sockeye salmon run in the world. 63% of the provincial population is d ependent on the Fraser River watershed. There has been no significant clean up carried out. Witnesses in the area of Mount Polley have seen Imperial Metals burying the toxic tailings waste, rather than removing it from the environment for clean up. Secwepemc First Nation have described the Mount Polley spill as the end of a way of life due to the destruction of wild salmon. Experts advise the impacts of Mount Polley will be felt for at least the next 25 years. The financial losses to fishing will be at least $1 billion over the next 25 years. The province of BC and Imperial Metals have violated and continue to violate international laws regarding “the right to safe and clean drinking water” as set out in UN Resolution 64/292. Results of a third-party review into Red Chris mine on Tahltan territory says it has the potential to cause significantly more environmental damage than Mount Polley. Red Chris mine's storage facility is much larger than Mount Polley, but it uses the same structure and technology as Mount Polley. Imperial Metals President Brian Kynoch envisions that production at Red Chris will be 5 times the scale of Mount Polley. A 2012 U.S. Based peer-reviewed study on tailings storage facilities, concluded that 28% of all copper mines experience partial or total tailings dam failure. Because tailings storage facilities contain heavy metals and toxic chemicals, they need to last forever. Mount Polley lasted 14 years before total failure, although it had experienced partial failures prior to the disaster of August 4, 2014.

ANGRY Rattlesnakes and the BIG HORN GOLD MINE
Adventure 031 - ANGRY Rattlesnakes and the BIG HORN GOLD MINE In this episode of Our Million Adventures we are in sunny Southern California on the steep slopes of Mt Baden-Powell. We are first on the mountain, and hike up to the abandoned Big Horn Gold Mine. The Big Horn mine is a fascinating piece of history from the gold rush years of California. Greed and shiny metal drove men into the mountains mad for the riches of the earth. Our explorations of the mine are book marked by close encounters with the "locals". We run into 2 rattlesnakes, one of which is very angry! There's more adventure inside, as we brave the darkness to get a glimpse into the history of The Big Horn. Come along with us and explore the mysteries of the mine. Note: Exploring Mines is VERY DANGEROUS. We do not endorse, challenge, promote, or encourage you ever do so yourself. All adventure comes with risk. It is your responsibility to assess, mitigate, and accept the consequences of any risks you undertake and deem reasonable.

Heavy Metal Salmon: Sub-Lethal Toxicity in the Skeena
Heavy metals are common pollutants of aquatic systems, often associated with human activities. Hard-rock mining, agriculture, urbanization, and industrialization have enabled the release of significant quantities of heavy metals to aquatic ecosystems, sometimes with profound ecological harm. All of the metals that were examined can negatively impact salmonids to some degree at concentrations below the levels known to cause lethality. Sub-lethal concentrations can alter behaviours related to predator avoidance, foraging, migration, and social interactions, and can cause the physical impairment associated with growth and development, swimming efficiency, and immune system responses. https://skeenawild.org/our-work/science-and-research/babine/

Acid Mine Drainage,from Copper Exploration-Ely, MN after 50 years
Exploring for Copper, Inco removed a hill top on the Spruce Road near Ely, MN in the 60's. 50 years later, even after their remediation in the state that is supposed to have the "strongest mining regulations" to protect the environment, almost nothing grows there. Aerial views also show more damage down stream than had been known. Nothing has been done by any mining company or the state of Minnesota to study or rectify the problems here.

The Toxic E-Waste Trade Killing Pakistan's Poorest
The E-Waste Curse: The deadly effect of dumping E-waste in Pakistan Pakistan has become an illegal dumping ground for some of the 50 million tons of e-waste created each year. Karachi's poor earn a living from the toxic detritus, but the vicious cycle of consumption could prove fatal. In Pakistan, the massive arrival of electronic waste has created an informal substance economy that feeds 150,000 people. The country's poor salvage what they can from the cast-offs of the electronic revolution: copper, steel, brass. Nassir is one who has cashed in on the opportunities found in old cables and hard-drives. "It’s a good business. I have more and more work", he says. Yet workers pay the price for a few grams of copper; 4 million people die every year because of electronic waste and recycling workers have the lowest life expectancy in Pakistan. In his recycling shop, Akhbar earns 2€ on a good day. It feeds his family of six, but his health has suffered. "This job is dangerous. It’s very toxic". And the toxic legacy is far-reaching - "It’s a catastrophe...especially for the children", warns Saba, an activist for the WWF. "They will continue to live here and be poisoned, it’s dangerous for them and it’s dangerous for the next generations". In our relentlessly consumerist world, can the global poor be saved from the toxic trade in e-waste?

EPA Emergency Response: The Pennsylvania Mine – Montezuma, Colorado
NOTE: If you need captions, please click the CC button on the player to turn them on. Pennsylvania Mine, located in the hills above Keystone Resort, has for decades dumped heavy metals (cadmium, copper, lead and zinc) into Peru Creek, a tributary of the Snake River. Heavy rainfall events sometimes flush out significant sediment loads from the abandoned mine site and, in 2007, resulted in a massive fish kill. EPA’s Emergency Response Program, along with state and local stakeholders, are working to mitigate the mine drainage and to restore stream water quality. For more information about EPA’s Emergency Response, go to http://www2.epa.gov/emergency-response For more information about EPA’s removal activities at the Pennsylvania Mine, go to http://epaosc.org/site/site_profile.aspx?site_id=8722 For more about EPA: http://www.epa.gov/ We accept comments according to our comment policy: http://blog.epa.gov/blog/comment-policy/
