12 Oct 2015, at 10h00, oral argument begins in Court GC in the Johannesburg High Court in Bongani Nkala and 55 Others vs Harmony Gold Mining and 31 Others, in an application to certify the biggest class action in South African history. The class they aim to certify is the 100 000+ current and former gold mineworkers who contracted Silicosis (black lung) and are still suffering from its devastating consequences. In the alternative, they seek certification of classes of employees of individual mining companies. Hundreds of thousands of workers have died of this entirely preventable disease over the last 130 years as their lives were not valuable enough for mining companies to incur the costs necessary to eliminate it.

Contribute to the Project: http://igeo.tv/contribuye-al-proyecto/ The Bingham Canyon Mine, also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine, is an open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mine is owned by Rio Tinto Group, an international mining and exploration company headquartered in the United Kingdom. The copper operations at Bingham Canyon Mine are managed through Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation which operates the mine, a concentrator plant, a smelter, and a refinery. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (0.97 km) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 under the name Bingham Canyon Open Pit Copper Mine. The mine experienced a massive landslide in April of 2013 and a smaller slide in September of 2013. Udachnaya was discovered on June 15, 1955, just two days after the discovery of the diamond pipe Mir by Soviet geologist Vladimir Shchukin and his team. It is more than 600 metres (1,970 ft) deep, making it the third deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine and Chuquicamata). The nearby settlement of Udachny is named for the deposit. As of 2010, Udachnaya pipe is controlled by Russian diamond company Alrosa, which planned to halt open-pit mining in favor of underground mining in 2010. The mine has estimated reserves of 225.8 million carats of diamonds and an annual production capacity of 10.4 million carats Chuquicamata, or "Chuqui" as it is more familiarly known, is by excavated volume the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, just outside of Calama, 215 km northeast of Antofagasta and 1,240 km north of the capital, Santiago. The mine is owned and operated by Codelco, a Chilean state enterprise, since the Chilean nationalization of copper in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its depth of 850 metres (2,790 ft) makes it the second deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine in Utah, USA). The Diavik Diamond Mine is a diamond mine in the North Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada, about 300 kilometres (190 mi) north of Yellowknife. It has become an important part of the regional economy, employing 700, grossing C$100 million in sales, and producing approximately 7.5 million carats (1,500 kg (3,300 lb)) of diamonds annually. The area was surveyed in 1992 and construction began in 2001, with production commencing in January 2003. It is connected by an ice road and Diavik Airport with a 5,235 ft (1,596 m) gravel runway regularly accommodating Boeing 737 jet aircraft. The Grasberg Mine is the largest gold mine and the third largest copper mine in the world. It is located in the province of Papua in Indonesia near Puncak Jaya, the highest mountain in Papua, and it has 19,500 employees. It is majority owned through a subsidiary by Freeport-McMoRan, which owns 90.64% of PT Freeport Indonesia, the principal operating subsidiary in Indonesia, including 9.36% owned through its wholly owned subsidiary, PT Indocopper Investama. The Government of Indonesia owns the remaining 9.36% of PT Freeport Indonesia. FCX operates under an agreement with the Government of Indonesia, which allows Freeport to conduct exploration, mining and production activities in a 24,700-acre area (Block A). It also conducts exploration activities in an approximate 500,000-acre area (Block B). All of Freeport's proven and probable mineral reserves and current mining operations are located in Block A. The 2006 production was 610,800 tonnes of copper; 58,474,392 grams of gold; and 174,458,971 grams of silver.

Dr. Phil Walsh, P.Geo, Associate Professor, Entrepreneurship and Strategy at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University, talks about the challenges of developing a mining business, depending on the different physical aspects of global environments. To evaluate a potential mine site, businesses send a team of geotechnical engineers and geologists to the site to collect and evaluate geological data. The team's evaluation forms the basis of the proposal to develop that mine, which is presented to banks and investment capitalists to acquire financing.

Check out these 10 countries with the largest gold reserves in the world! This top 10 list features some of the richest and wealthiest countries on earth that have tons of gold bars stacked up somewhere! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "SURPRISING And Interesting Facts About Money!" video here: https://youtu.be/ONpChSPqVc4 Watch our "Most AMAZING Discoveries With A Metal Detector!" video here: https://youtu.be/45JveYKafVo Watch our "Most EXPENSIVE Diamonds In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/RcZATf3Lmb0 10.) India According to the World Gold Council, the Bank of India currently holds 557.7 tons of gold. It is one of the largest stores of gold in the world! This makes up 9.9 % of the country’s total foreign reserve. Foreign exchange reserves is money or other assets held by a nation’s central bank so they can back the national currency. India, home to 1.25 billion people, is the number one largest consumer of the precious metal. Furthermore, India is one of the most reliable drivers of global demand. For example, India’s festival and wedding season, which runs from October to December, has historically been a major market for gold. And probably, one of the most interesting facts about India and gold is that India rarely invests much in gold. This is because as a country, India operates under the belief that buying gold leads to a deficit. And their belief must be proving right as things also seem to be improving for India. For instance, if you look at the last few years, India has increased its gold reserves from 557.74 to 557.77. While this might not seem like a lot, India is also at its highest point in history! In addition to what the country holds, Indian households which are considered the world’s largest hoarders of gold, hold a record 23,000-24,000 tons, which is worth about $800 billion. 9.) Netherlands In the past few years, the Netherlands has held 52% of its foreign reserve in gold. The Netherlands has a reported 612.45 tons. In 2016 it was reported that the bank was looking for a place to store all its gold because they were going to renovate the vaults and needed to moving it. The Dutch central bank is planning to move the country’s gold reserves from the center of Amsterdam to a new complex called the Cash Center. Like most countries, Dutch gold is also held in banks around the world to reduce risk. Security measures to guard the gold 24/7 have become a problem in Amsterdam. 189,000 kilos of gold will be moved at the beginning of 2022. Maybe this is one reason that over the last decade and a half, the Netherlands was selling off tons of gold in order to reduce its reserve. However, there weren’t that many buyers out there and they sold less than the country wanted. More recently the country has had less ambition to sell gold. Currently, the country holds the same amount of tons, 612.45 that they have over the last few years. However, the country has increased its percentage of foreign reserves to 61.2 %. 8.) Japan Japan is another country which had been increasing its gold reserves since the 1960’s. Their official gold holdings were reported at 765.2 tons. About 2.4% of Japan’s gold today is in foreign reserve. Historically, Japan has always held a bit more gold than other countries. This was true until 2011, when they began to sell some of their reserve in order to pump money into the economy after the tsunami and the following Fukushima nuclear disaster. But even with selling, Japan’s central bank has been one of the most aggressive practitioners of quantitative easing. For example, in January of 2016, it lowered interest rates below zero, which has helped fuel demand in gold around the world. 7.) Switzerland Prior to 1997, Switzerland was steadily building its gold reserves. In 1997, the decision was made to sell some of those reserves to bolster the Swiss currency and diversify the foreign reserves. The percent of foreign reserves in Switzerland is currently 6.7 %. Switzerland actually has the world’s largest reserves of gold per capita and currently has reported 1,040 tons. Over time, many citizens in the country started to feel like the bank was getting rid of too much gold. They then banded together with the “Save the Swiss” movement. However, once everyone was able to vote in 2014, the vote came to a no, and gold continued to be sold. During World War II, Switzerland became the center of the gold trade in Europe, making transactions with both the Allies and Axis powers. Today, much of its gold trading is done with Hong Kong and China. Around last year, the Swiss National Bank made a $5.9 billion profit, reportedly from its gold holdings.

http://www.hdimining.com/s/Home.asp Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI) is a diversified, global mining group with more than 25 years of mineral development success. From its head office in Vancouver, Canada, HDI applies its unique strengths and capabilities to acquire, develop, operate and monetize mineral properties that provide consistently superior returns to shareholders. HDI was established as an affiliation of geologists, financiers and mining professionals engaged in advancing mineral properties in western Canada for a series of public companies. Many of the company's founders are active members of the HDI Board of Directors and senior management team today. From 1985 to 1990, HDI founded three companies -- North American Metals, Continental Gold and El Condor Resources -- with projects that would go on to become major hard rock mines. These include Golden Bear (operated 1989-2001), Kemess (operated 2000-2011) and Mt. Milligan (construction commenced in 2010). A new suite of HDI-associated public companies was created in the 1990s, each of which went on to advance significant mining assets and generate superior shareholder returns. Many of these companies -- including Taseko Mines Limited, Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. and Amarc Resources Ltd. -- are still associated with HDI today. Others that achieved mineral exploration and development success with HDI -- including Great Basin Gold Limited, Detour Gold Corporation, Rockwell Diamonds Inc. and Anooraq Resources Corporation -- are now independently managed. On January 5, 2011, Farallon Mining Ltd. was acquired by Nyrstar NV in an all cash transaction valued at C$409 million. Continental Minerals Corporation was acquired by the Jinchuan Mining Group in April 2011 in a transaction valued at C$432 million. HDI is structured as a private mining group that provides management and technical services to a diverse portfolio of high-quality and high-growth mineral companies and properties. HDI sources and acquires mineral assets with significant potential for value growth. Between 1985 and 2010, HDI companies raised more than $1.4 billion in equity financing, while providing consistently superior shareholder returns. The compounded annual growth rate for all HDI company investments over that timeframe exceeds 25%. An investment of $10,000 made in 1986 would be valued at $3,000,000 in 2010, a return of 30,000%. This far exceeds most mining industry peers and benchmark indices. HDI has the technical capabilities and management experience to consistently and rapidly advance mineral properties through exploration, development, permitting, construction and into stable and profitable mine operations. It possesses a fully integrated, multi-disciplinary team of mining professionals with global experience and a proven track record of mineral development success. HDI management and professional staff are known for their versatility, creativity and passion to find the best solution to every development challenge. HDI's unique strengths and capabilities are applied to identify, qualify and acquire mineral assets with significant potential for value growth. They are also applied to accelerate the development of every HDI company, and to monetize value in the best interests of development partners. HDI is characterized by the drive and commitment of its founders, senior management and multi-disciplinary team. It is known for its technical excellence, experience and reliability. And it is passionate about bringing Responsible Mineral Development to life in creative ways for the benefit of shareholders, partners and communities. HDI is associated with the following companies: Heatherdale Resources Ltd., Curis Resources Ltd., Northcliff Resources Ltd., Rathdowney Resources Ltd., Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd., Amarc Resources Ltd., and Quartz Mountain Resources Ltd.

Aired on June 20, 2007 As commodity prices boom around the world, Canada's mining industry is booming, too. But it's also under increasing scrutiny. Pressure from NGO's who monitor Canadian companies abroad, led to a national round-table on corporate social responsibility and the extractive industry. Its produced a stellar and unanimous report N-G-Os and industry came to a consensus. We wanted to talk to someone from Foreign Affairs about these new guidelines, unfortunately, they declined saying they're still studying the proposals. It seems there may not be consensus in the Canadian government. But for the bigger picture of the Canadian mining industry worldwide, Avi talks to Karyn Keenan with the Halifax Initiative, an international development NGO based in Ottawa. THE FACTS ON MINING IN CANADA: Sixty percent of the world's exploration companies are listed on Canada's Stock Exchanges. Eighty-five percent of all the mining deals done world wide are done in Canada. Canadian companies account for over 40% of global exploration budgets. And they have Interests in more than 3,000 mineral properties in more than 100 countries. It all means that Canada is a big player. LINKS: http://www.halifaxinitiative.org/

Dirty Diamonds (1996): Angola boasts the most dangerous and illegal diamond mines in the world. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures# Synopsis: From an aerial view, hundreds of men dot the crater ridden landscape. In small groups, bare chested, knee deep in murky water, they sieve gravel for hours until they spot the glitter of one tiny diamond. In town, we interview an illegal trader who compares diamond dealing to the blood diamond trade in a warzone. He takes out a small paper package from his trouser leg and slowly unwraps a cluster of uncut jewels. He carries them to bribe his way out of any difficult situations. The De Beers diamond cartel is keen to stop the illegal diamond trade. A spokesman maintains that most of Angola's diamonds are smuggled out the country and are therefore denied to the people of Angola. We would like to develop a first class diamond field and build a proper mining operation. In this way the country can be further developed. Local mining companies depend on private security firms to guarantee their safety. While filming, bandits with grenade launchers and machine guns take our reporter by surprise. After much bargaining, she is finally allowed to leave the area.

I’m going to give an overview of Planetary Resources and explore the potential for asteroid mining. Planetary Resources, PR for short, will have their Arkyd-6 imaging satellite launched from the Indian Space Research Organization’s PSLV rocket in the coming weeks. The launch of the Arkyd 6 will bring PR one step closer to their goal to develop and deploy the technologies for asteroid mining. How does Planetary Resources plan to mine asteroids? Let’s find out! Welcome to NeoScribe, researching the future for you, so you don’t have to. If you’re new to my channel, I cover topics such as space exploration, robotics and ALL things future. So if you want to know how cool life will be in the future, hit the subscribe button, and notification bell, so you don’t miss out. Alight, our journey starts with the asteroid, 1903 LU also known as 511 Davida. It is the 7th largest asteroid in our solar system with a diameter of 167 to 192 miles or 270 to 310 km. Davida was discovered by Raymond Smith Dugan in 1903, and it will blow your mind. We will get to that a little later, but for now, let’s visit Asterank.com; which is a scientific and economic database of over 600,000 asteroids created by Ian Webster and acquired by PR in 2013. Here it is, we can see the inner half of the solar system, the outer orange ring is the orbit of Jupiter. The teal colored ring is the orbit of Earth. And then there are all these tiny white dots, glowing like specs of dust. Each of those dots are actual asteroids, simulated accurately, according to time which you can see is sped up in the upper right of the screen. Now let’s click on Most Valuable, and look to the left of the screen. On the top of the list, we see Davida. Next to its name is 1903’s estimated value of $15 QUINTILLION dollars. Unless you’ve played AdVenture Capitalist, you probably aren’t familiar with QUINTILLIONS. A QUINTILLION has 18 zeros behind it. $15 Quintillion is so much money, it would take GDP of all the countries in the world at $78 Trillion, 197,213 years to make $15 Quintillion! S0, Planetary Resources, PR, has their eyes set on the treasures of space. PR’s mission is to mine near-Earth asteroids for raw materials, ranging from water to precious metals. They aim to develop cost-effective exploration technologies, and initiate prospecting missions and target resource-rich asteroids that are easily accessible. PR believes mining asteroids could bring in billions of dollars annually to the global economy. The effort will tap into the high concentration of precious metals found on asteroids and provide a sustainable supply to the ever-growing population on Earth. PR was founded in 2009, in a shroud of secrecy, under the name of Arkyd Astronautics to hide their asteroid mining intentions. It was founded by Peter Diamandis, Eric Anderson and Chris Lewicki and is headquartered out of Redmond WA. They are backed by a handful of billionaire investors, including Google’s co-founder Larry Page, Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt, former Microsoft chief architect Charles Simonyi, and Ross Perot Jr. The company also has Avatar director James Cameron, former astronaut Tom Jones, and planetary scientist Sara Seager as advisers.

How do gold companies finance themselves? The global mining industry is very capital intensive and requires hundreds of millions to take a project from exploration to production. This means that companies must be good at raising capital to develop projects and create shareholder value. The four key sources of financing are; - Equity financing; common shares & flow-through shares - Internal funds - Debt financing - Alternative financing through royalty or streaming agreements Skip ahead to the mining stage that interests you; 9:25 - Exploration Stage 28:50 - Evaluation Stage 47:15 - Development Stage 58:40 - Production Stage In this video, I cover some important question related to the financial side of the mining industry. - How do junior exploration companies finance themselves? - What are royalty agreements? What is a Net smelter royalty? - What are streaming agreements? - What are the trade-offs between royalty and streaming agreements? - What is the capital pool company program and how has it helped the mining industry? - What are earn-in JVs and how can they help junior exploration companies?

Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.

Rahim Jivraj, President of Mercer Gold Corporation, is interviewed on BBC World Business on February 16th 2011. With Colombia projected to double its gold production over the next five years, how did Rahim Jivraj, a 33-year old Canadian finance entrepreneur and mining novice, wind up with extensive land holdings in one of the hottest gold districts in Colombia? With this gold boom in Colombia, South America in full swing, securing speculative land adjacent to a gold deposit with 10 million ounces may have been an act of divine providence. "It's the result of being in the right place at the right time," says Rahim Jivraj, President, CEO and Director, Mercer Gold Corporation, www.mercergoldcorp.com, who founded the company last year with this one major asset: the Guayabales Gold Project located in the Marmato Gold District, in Caldas, Colombia

Hidden Gems: After suffering the Soviets, the Taliban, and the War on Terror, Afghanistan has had its share of turmoil; but can 1,000 billion dollars worth of emeralds lift Afghanistan out of poverty? Subscribe to Journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures For similar stories see: Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines https://youtu.be/c7iv1fef6qo Zimbabwe's Blood Diamond Killing Fields https://youtu.be/k9Bk5VIhjiY The Children Risking Their Lives In Underwater Gold Mines https://youtu.be/P1L_pxYZVwE "We have a lot of requests from Europe because the Emeralds from Afghanistan are the best in the world", Raphael says. He's a Frenchman who first came to Afghanistan to train Afghan security services before venturing into the emerald trade. He sees a huge chance here to exploit a market that could easily increase in value twenty or thirty-fold, but the obstacles are not inconsiderable. Just to get to the mines Raphael has to travel the 150 Kilometres from Kabul to Panjshir, right through Taliban kidnap country. When he gets there he finds an industry in the dark ages, where homemade pyrotechnics are exploded in poorly dug mineshafts, killing many miners and ruining the quality of up to 75% of the stones they dig. "If you see the damage being done to these stones... so much is lost", Yama Torabi from Integrity Watch Afghanistan tells us. The government here remains hopelessly out of touch with the industry that "still (uses) a mining law adopted 100 years ago". But as the country prepares for elections and Europeans like Raphael open up the gem trade here, could this be a beacon of hope for the future?

Gold is valuable but jade is priceless, so goes a Chinese saying. For centuries, the Chinese consider jade an imperial stone with mystical properties. Today it is coveted all over China as a status symbol, a collectible and an investment. Demand from increasingly wealthy Chinese drives the value of jade through the roof. At this year's Shanghai World Jewellery Expo, auctioneers put the opening bid for top grade jade items at more than $160 a gram, exceeding four times the price of gold. Intricately designed pieces, made from top grade jade known as jadeite, are viewed as attractive investments despite the lack of scientific valuation methods. In recent years, jadeite has provided better returns than real estate. But the imperial stone delivers a death sentence to treasure hunters in Myanmar, where China's jadeite comes from. Most of Myanmar's raw jade enters a murky black market. Its official revenue from jade exports over from 2011 to 2014 was $1.3bn. But Harvard University's Ash Center estimates total jade sales - including through unofficial channels - were $8bn in 2011 alone, suggesting most of the revenue does not go into government coffers. The Myanmar government will not speak to us on camera. But our investigations reveal a corrupt senior government official who works with businessmen in the illegal trade of raw jade, including helping to falsify tax documents. In northern Kachin state, we follow jade smugglers to the remote Hpakant mining town, the source of the world's best jade. The men are part of the government's border guard force. The officer in charge tells us how he pays off army and police commanders along the smuggling trail to China. Hpakant is out of bounds to foreigners and no foreign journalists have been known to make it there for years. Large mining companies suspended operations here in 2012 after the Kachin Independence Army and the Myanmar government went to war the preceding year, ending a 17-year ceasefire. With peace talks stalling, most companies have yet to resume excavation. Despite the tension, tens of thousands of small time jade pickers have flooded Hpakant to sift through mine tailings, risking life and limb to toil in harsh conditions, hoping to strike jackpot. Some work alone, others in groups supported by businessmen. Their findings often go straight into the black market, forming the unregulated bedrock of the industry today. A dark force fuels their labour. Jade picker Aik San estimates 75 percent of the miners have become drug addicts. They get their daily dose of heroin or yama - a type of methamphetamine - from drug dens around town. It numbs them from their backbreaking labour and helps them work longer hours in the harsh weather. With hidden cameras, we obtain shocking footage from the drug dens, revealing the scale of drug abuse that infests the underbelly of the jade trade. We also find a drug rehabilitation centre in Kachin state with more than 50 recovering addicts from the mining town. One of them, Aung Kyaw Moe, painfully shares how his employer paid him and fellow workers with heroin to get them hooked so they would work harder for their next dose. As the hammer goes down in major Chinese cities for more glitzy jade items auctioned off at record levels, wealthy collectors celebrate yet another treasure possessed. It offers stark contrast to the wretched lives of mine pickers at the bottom of the supply chain, in a land far away. 101 East investigates the jade smuggling trail and uncovers the human cost of the imperial stone.

Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

Coal is a great source of power but it is hard to get as it is a non-renewable. India is solely depended on coal production as it helps to generate electricity for various purposes from domestic usage to industrial usage. India’s best coal is in Jharia, Jharkhand where underground fires caused by open mining have been burning for centuries. It is a sad truth that coal is an important source of minerals yet it releases some harmful gases in the air which cause a tremendous climatic change which is a serious health issue for everybody. The production of coal in India is immense lying on the two belts one on the Peninsular India and the other is in the North-Eastern part of India. The availability of coal can be found in billion tones across the various states where coal diggers go deep underground to bring out the best coal for industrial usage. The added advantage of coal is that it is the cheapest and very efficient way to create electricity. Coal is a huge part of the economy just like the oil and natural gas. Thus, today we have enlisted the top 10 largest coal producing states in India over which millions of people are solely depended today.

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed first time guest, Senior Precious Metals Analyst at GoldSilver.com, Jeff Clark. Jeff was a former mining analyst and newsletter writer at Casey Research where he wrote the Big Gold investment newsletter. Jeff writes a gold market newsletter for GoldSilver.com and his also writes articles for their blog https://goldsilver.com/blog/ Here's some of the questions and topics Jason asks Jeff about during this 30+ minute interview: 1) There was record physical gold withdrawals in November 2016 and February 2017 from the Shanghai Gold Exchange yet many mainstream gold organizations like the World Gold Council, GFMS, etc claim gold demand is weak. What's your take on demand for physical gold globally? 2) The gold to silver ratio is around 71. Do you think this means that silver is the better long term value relative to gold at this point? 3) I want to talk about the primary gold and silver mining industry. Do you think that in general the industry has done a good job at cutting costs in order to survive since gold hit $1900 and silver hit $48 in 2011 and a cyclical bear market started? 4) In December 2016, Bloomberg ran a story showing how primary gold miners are running out of economic gold reserves https://www.bloomberg.com/ news/articles/2016-12-21/gold- miners-are-running-out-of- metal-five-charts-explaining- why Do you think the industry can replace reserves at current gold and silver prices or will gold and silver prices have to go substantially higher to maintain current production levels and also to replace mined/depleted reserves? 5) Can primary gold and silver miners significantly cut more costs without shutting down mines or going bankrupt? 6) The CEO of Franco Nevada recently said that it will almost be impossible for the gold mining industry to grow production beyond current production levels. Do you agree with him? https://www.bloomberg.com/ news/articles/2017-03-01/gold- miners-running-to-stand-still- after-cuts-franco-ceo-says 7) Large gold mining companies like Barrick Gold, Newmont Mining and Goldcorp have written off their proven and probable gold reserves since 2012. Reserves have declined to 61%, 62% and 69% of the 2012 heydays. Is the gold mining industry facing very difficult supply problems now and in the future? http://seekingalpha.com/ article/4056567-resource- sector-digest-acquisition- targets Please visit the Wall St for Main St website here: http://www.wallstformainst.com/ Follow Jason Burack on Twitter @JasonEBurack Follow Mo Dawoud on Twitter @m0dawoud Follow Wall St for Main St on Twitter @WallStforMainSt Commit to tipping us monthly for our hard work creating high level, thought proving content about investing and the economy https://www.patreon.com/wallstformainst Also, please take 5 minutes to leave us a good iTunes review here!
