Where To Find Gold In The UK?
Where to find gold in the UK? We take a look at where to find gold UK. What many people don't realise is that you can find gold in the UK. Finding gold can be extremely exciting, but you have to know where to look. England has always been known as a wealthy country, but the mineral wealth has never gotten much attention. The country is actually quite rich in mineral resources, and there have been discoveries of various minerals all across the UK. Different areas have produced different minerals deposits. Iron, copper, silver, tin and lead have all been mined in England, but with the high price of gold in recent years there has been increasing interest in gold from casual prospectors. In this video we take a look at some of the best places to find gold in the UK. Thank you for watching! Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

Security of Supply of Mineral Resources Programme
Security of Supply of Mineral Resources (SoS MinErals) is a multi-million pound research programme, backed by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, in partnership with industry and academia, and our global partner FAPESP. Global action to protect the environment and to mitigate and adapt to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is demanding significant changes in the way we generate and use energy. This initiative focuses on the science needed to sustain the security of supply of the strategic elements that underpin current and future green energy technologies — the so-called 'e-tech elements': cobalt (Co), tellurium (Te), slenium (Se), neodymium (Nd), indium (In), gallium (Ga) and heavy rare earth elements (HREE). The programme aims to enhance global security of supply of these e-tech elements in two ways; firstly through improved understanding of e-tech element cycling and concentration in natural systems, and secondly by using this information to develop improved recovery processes from primary sources in order to mitigate the environmental effects of extraction and recovery of e-tech elements.

What is MINING ENGINEERING? What does MINING ENGINEERING mean? MINING ENGINEERING meaning - MINING ENGINEERING definition - MINING ENGINEERING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that applies science and technology to the extraction of minerals from the earth. Mining engineering is associated with many other disciplines, such as geology, mineral processing and metallurgy, geotechnical engineering and surveying. A mining engineer may manage any phase of mining operations – from exploration and discovery of the mineral resource, through feasibility study, mine design, development of plans, production and operations to mine closure. With the process of Mineral extraction, some amount of waste and uneconomic material are generated which are the primary source of pollution in the vicinity of mines. Mining activities by their nature cause a disturbance of the natural environment in and around which the minerals are located. Mining engineers must therefore be concerned not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities, but also with the mitigation of damage to the environment both during and after mining as a result of the change in the mining area. Mining Engineers in India are earning relatively high salaries in comparison to many other professions. The average salary for a Mining Engineer in India is $15,250. However, the salaries are always highly determined by the level of skill, where the organisation is based and which organisation you are working for. In comparison to salaries of Mining Engineer’s working in other regions, such as Canada, the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom, the salaries are dismal, however when comparing salaries from one region to another, there are many factors that need to be taken into consideration, such as the cost of living etc.In the United States, there are an estimated 6,630 employed mining engineers. The mean yearly salary for a mining engineer in the U.S. is $90,070 .

How Israel developed the most technologically advanced military across the globe
How Israel developed the most technologically advanced military across the globe Unlike its Arab adversaries, Israel did not have natural resources to fund its economy. There was no oil or minerals. Nothing. The delegation held a couple of meetings but was mostly met with laughs. The Israelis were trying to sell oranges, kerosene stove tops and fake teeth, the New York Post reports. For countries like Argentina, which grew its own oranges and was connected to the electrical grid, the products were pretty useless. It’s hard to imagine this is what Israeli exports looked like a mere 67 years ago. Today, Israel is a high-tech superpower and one of the world’s top weapons exporters with approximately $6.5billion (£5.2billion GBP) in annual arms sales. Since 1985, for example, Israel is the world’s largest exporter of drones, responsible for about 60 percent of the global market, trailed by the US, whose market share is under 25 percent. Its customers are everywhere — Russia, South Korea, Australia, France, Germany and Brazil. In 2010, for example, ?ve NATO countries were ?ying Israeli drones in Afghanistan. How did this happen? How did Israel, a country not yet even 70 years old, become a superpower with one of the most technologically advanced militaries in the world that is changing the way modern wars are fought? The answer, I believe, is a combination of a number of national characteristics unique to Israel. First, despite Israel’s small size, about 4.5 percent of its GDP is spent on research and development, almost twice the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development average. Of that amount, about 30 percent goes to products of a military nature. By comparison, only 2 percent of German R&D and 17 percent of the US R&D is for the military. Another major contribution is the culture of innovation and creativity in Israel. Israelis are more willing to take risks than other nations. They get this from their compulsory military service during which they are tasked, at a young age, to carry out missions often with deadly consequences. While Israeli 19-year-olds embark on operations behind enemy lines, their Western counterparts can be found in the safety of their college dormitories. Lastly, Israel has been in a perpetual state of conflict since its inception, fighting a war almost every decade. This reality, of having your back up against the wall, sharpens the mind. It forces Israelis to be creative and come up with innovative ways and weapons to survive. This is the Israel story … Robotic border patrols :: The Guardium is a part of a new category of robotic weapons known as Unmanned Ground Vehicles or UGVs. Israel is the first country in the world using these robots to replace soldiers on missions like border patrols. In addition, soldiers require breaks, food and water. All a Guardium needs is a full tank of gas. Other UGVs in use by the IDF include the Segev, which is based on a Ford F-350 pickup truck. Facing terrorists who use tunnels to infiltrate into Israel from places like the Gaza Strip, Israel is also relying on UGVs like robotic snakes to slither their way into underground passageways and enemy headquarters. The robots will then map out the structures, giving soldiers an accurate picture of a battle area before the place is stormed. The same is happening at sea. Israeli defence contractor Rafael has developed an unmanned patrol ship called Protector which is being used by Israel to protect its strategic ports and patrol the country’s long Mediterranean coastline. The Arrow anti-missile programme :: In 2000, the Israeli air force received its ?rst operational Arrow missile battery, making Israel the ?rst country in the world with an operational system that could shoot down incoming enemy missiles. Mini Spy Satellites :: In 1988, Israel launched its first spy satellite into space, gaining membership in the exclusive club of just eight nations with independent satellite-launching capabilities. From the beginning, there were those who doubted Israel was capable of developing, building and launching its own satellite, but in the nearly 30 years since that day, it has grown into a satellite superpower, now operating eight different spy satellites in space. Drones :: It is referred to in Israel as the “drone that can reach Iran.” The Heron TP is Israel’s largest unmanned aerial vehicle with an 85-foot wingspan, the same as a Boeing 737 airliner. It can stay airborne for 24 hours and carry a 1-ton payload. The top-secret tank :: To this day, the Merkava tank is one of Israel’s most top-secret projects. It is said to be one of the most lethal and protected tanks in the world, and its construction started out of pure necessity — the United Kingdom and other countries refused to sell Israel tanks.

Michio Kaku predicts asteroid mining will happen sooner than you think
Good news! We're on the precipice of the next great gold rush... but it won't be in the hills of California. Or anywhere on this planet. It'll be in outer space, as there are untapped rare materials in asteroids that could be used for future technologies. That's right: there's gold in them thar skies! Theoretical physicist and one of our favorite Big Thinkers, Dr. Michio Kaku, explains to us that while China might have a stranglehold on the rare minerals and metals on our planet, there's no stopping interplanetary mining. We've even got an actual plan with actual economics already in place... we just have to wait until NASA's SLS rocket technology fully develops. Michio Kaku's latest book is the awesome The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/michio-kaku-asteroid-mining-will-happen-sooner-than-you-think Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: When I was researching my book The Future of Humanity I came across a comment made by Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson made the biggest gamble of his life buying the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon. Napoleon was fighting the British he needed hard cash immediately. He had Louisiana and that whole middle portion of the United States and so Napoleon sold it to Thomas Jefferson for a song. But Thomas Jefferson thought how long would it take to investigate what he had just purchased? He had doubled the size of the USA. Think about that. And he probably violated the Constitution in the process. Everyone forgets that. Everyone glosses over that fact, but hey when Louis and Clark went into the territories that comprised the Louisiana Purchase they found tremendous prospects for wealth and prosperity, but Thomas Jefferson wrote that it may take a thousand years, a thousand years before they could then begin to settle the west. Well, how long did it take? A few decades because what happened? Gold. Gold was discovered in California sparking the gold rush and within just a few years millions of prospectors, settlers, fortune hunters converged on California. It didn’t take a thousand years to develop that. Then the question now is is there going to be a new gold rush in outer space? Some people think so. Some Google billionaires have created an organization, a company, Planetary Resources, that are looking into prospecting in the asteroid belt. Now, asteroids come in all shapes and sizes and we’re cataloging them now and we have already found some perspective asteroids that could be mined. One asteroid perhaps maybe 30/50 feet across brought back down either to the moon or to the planet earth could in fact yield billions of dollars in rewards because of the rare earths and the platinum type medals that you find inside. You see, the electronics industry is dependent upon rare earths. Where are these rare earth elements found it? Mainly in China. They’re everywhere, of course, but China has the most developed market and the Chinese in turn supply on the order of 90 percent of the rare earths. Well, a few years ago they decided to capitalize that and raise the price. All of a sudden shockwaves, shockwaves spread around the earth because people realized that oh my God China has a stranglehold, a stranglehold on high technology. How can you build the next iPhone if you don’t have the rare earths to make the transistors and to make the delicate components of these high tech devices? So I think what’s happening here is that some people see an area for profit and that is asteroid mining. Now of course, the infrastructure for that doesn’t exist, but NASA has looked at its budget and does have a program that has been shelved temporarily to redirect an asteroid. The Asteroid Redirect Program is to send of the SL ass booster rocket into outer space with the Orion capsule. It will then intercept an asteroid and bring it back to orbit around the moon. Then it can be mined as it orbits around the moon or as it’s brought back to planet earth. And so this is now beyond the phase of science fiction. We’re no longer talking about dreaming about an asteroid redirect, we’re talking about an actual plan with the economics, with the details laid out. However, at the present time we have to wait for NASA’s SLS rocket to mature to the point where we can intercept an asteroid.

PEAK RESOURCES - THE RARE EARTH REFINERY Tees Valley an exceptional versatility, adaptability and top class “plug and play” location providing the perfect infrastructure for a top class rare earth refinery To better position Peak in the market, a strategic decision has been made to establish a rare earth refinery at a location with access to global shipping, cheap and reliable bulk reagent supplies (particularly hydrochloric acid and caustic soda), a skilled labour force, readily available power, water and environmentally sustainable options to dispose of tailings materials. Wilton International Site (“Wilton”) in Tees Valley, 5th largest UK port by volume with an annual cargo volume of 40 million tonnes, near the town of Middlesbrough in the United Kingdom (UK) is a large scale industrial park offering a “plug and play” option with existing access to reliable competitively priced power, utilities and services. Wilton is also located within 3km of the Teesport, a deep water port where the rare earth mineral concentrate will be shipped, and close to a number of facilities that are capable of managing the tailings from the process. Peak Resources’ in-house technical expertise has allowed the Company to develop a competitive, custom made chemical route that delivers the most cost effective method of extracting the high value elements Neodymium and Praseodymium. Peak Resources is one of the few market players outside of China who plan to be fully vertically integrated! The Company is targeting to produce and market the following 4 products: -A high purity 2N neodymium + praseodymium oxide (99.9%) product of approx. 2,810 tonnes per year (tpa) -A combined mid+heavy rare earth carbonate of approx. 625 tpa per year(equivalent to 330 tpa of contained REO ) -A separated lanthanum rare earth carbonate of approx. 7,995 tpa (equivalent to 4,230 tpa of contained REO ) -A separated cerium rare earth carbonate of approx. 3,475 tpa (equivalent to 1,920 tpa of contained REO ) Furthermore, The Company has the support of the UK government through the Department for International Trade which includes UK Export Finance as well as locally from the Tees Valley Combined Authority. The Wilton site is also located within an Enterprise Zone with Enhanced Capital Allowance status. Companies located at this site can apply to receive a first year capital allowance of 100% on qualifying plant and machinery currently set to a maximum of 125 million Euros. The corporate tax rate is currently set at 20% and is expected to reduce to 18% from 1 April 2020. The planned capital expenditure for the refinery according to the BFS – update results approx. US $165 million including 15% contingency and 5% owners costs and we anticipate an annual operational expenditure of US $40 million.

Public Lecture 2018_February_Andrew Bloodworth
Close to the edge? Approaching new frontiers for mineral and metal resources Population growth, urbanisation and technological transitions are creating increasing demand for minerals and metals. These powerful drivers are likely to sustain this growing material demand up to and beyond the middle of the century. Supply from existing mines can only satisfy demand up to a certain point, after which commodity prices will rise and the market will look for new sources of supply. Commodity price increases also drive innovations in science and technology. These innovations will unlock new metal and mineral resources, pushing development toward the frontiers of possibility. This lecture will explore some of these new resource frontiers and examine the technological, economic, social and environmental factors which may encourage or constrain development. Throughout human history, mining of minerals and metals has always taken place at geographical and technological frontiers, close to the limit of what is possible. Unprecedented material demand has a strong correlation with human-induced environmental change. Are moves toward these new resource frontiers pushing us toward the edge, to the environmental limits of our planet, or do some directions offer the possibility of a more sustainable future? Speaker Andrew Bloodworth, British Geological Survey, Science Director for Minerals and Waste As BGS Science Director for Minerals and Waste, Andrew is responsible for all BGS research related to mineral resources and the geological disposal of radioactive waste. Andrew’s own interests include resource security, critical minerals and the impact of mining on the developing world. He has worked extensively in Africa and was formerly Mining Advisor to the UK Department for International Development. Andrew has been a Fellow since 1995 and a Chartered Geologist. He is also Associate Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute, and a member of the UK Minerals Forum, the Confederation of British Industry Minerals Group and the Mineral Resources Expert Group of EuroGeosurveys.

Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

Executive Course on Oil, Gas and Mining Governance
Countries with non-renewable resource wealth face both an opportunity and a challenge. When used well, these resources can create greater prosperity for current and future generations. Squandered, they can cause economic instability, social conflict, and lasting environmental damage. To benefit from resource wealth, citizens, private companies, and governments must make a broad range of decisions. Each requires leaders to consider complex options and trade-offs, and devise strategies to implement these policy choices. This intensive five-day course provides the training and insight required for policy leaders in the public and private sector to work towards better management and governance of oil, gas or mineral resources for a better future. The course builds a better understanding of the interests of the public and private sectors and facilitates dialogue and mutual appreciation of respective positions between these different groups. Globally recognised experts and academics have developed this course to encourage public and private sector leaders from multiple countries to share their own experiences, while gaining insights and specialist knowledge about natural resource management. The course looks at both technical policy aspects of managing resource and the complex interplay between governments, companies and citizens.

Stay Younger, Longer - The Lowdown on Sunscreen
Follow me on instagram here http://instagram.com/lisaeldridgemakeup. For all the products that are featured in this film click on the links below: 100% of advertising revenue is donated to charity. This film is full of information about the latest rules, regulations and the ingredients to know when it comes to sunscreen. I've spoken to many dermatologists and scientists in the UK and USA and have included products recommended by them, as well as some personal favourites that I use on myself and my celebrity clients. Keeping your skin protected in the sun is one of the easiest ways you can keep it looking younger for longer, and with so many great textures and formulas available now for every skin type, there really is no excuse not to wear SPF everyday ;) I hope the film is helpful for everyone who asked for it.x On my lips is Lancôme's Shine Lover in 218 : http://lisae.me.uk/26801-27000 and Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude: http://lisae.me.uk/26504-27000 Update - July 2016 I recently went back to the experts I spoke to in this film to see if there had been any changes in terms of the disparity between America and the rest of the world when it comes to sunscreen. Jeff Murad, Vice President Product Development at Murad Skincare, told me that, 'While the FDA has been talking a lot lately about fast-tracking the approval of some sunscreen actives, we have not seen any activity yet.' Nathan Rivas, Senior Researcher at Paula's Choice also said that, unfortunately, 'because the Sunscreen Innovation Act didn’t allow for changes to the FDA testing requirements (nor provide funding for additional resources in managing this process), the result is that no new sunscreen ingredients are expected to meet FDA approval anytime in the next few years. L’Oréal came the closest with Mexoryl SX at the end of last summer, but still failed to meet the FDA's requirements.' However, he did point out that many skincare companies are focusing their efforts on improving and innovating the ways in which they are able to use the FDA's current, approved sunscreen actives - with 'improved aesthetics and reduced skin sensitivity' among the intended results of these advancements... watch this space.

Pakistan: Richest Country in Natural Resources. See How Rich is Pakistan in Natural Resources
Pakistan: Richest Country in Natural Resources. See How Rich is Pakistan in Natural Resources Follow us on http://offensivemilitary.blogspot.com/ www.www.facebook.com/pakistanaffairs2017 www.twitter.com/pakistanaffairz Pakistan is Rich in Natural Resources There is no denying the fact that Pakistan is one of the richest countries in terms of natural resources and its immense geo-strategic potential. The country's abundant wealth of resources including that of energy, agriculture, minerals, population, and geography needs no explanation, but unlike the developed countries, these have not been properly utilised due to poor management. This dismal situation is caused due to several flaws which have led to poor governance of country since its inception except some brief periods of economic prosperity. Prevalent political rivalry and instability, worsening law and order situation and rampant corruption have led to resource development impasse. A broader overview of geographic position of Pakistan reveals that it is located in South Asia and has 650 miles of coastline on the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman. The west is bordered by Afghanistan and Iran. India is to the east and China in the far northeast. The country is strategically located between South Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Our country is bestowed with some of the best soil resources, for instance, natural gas, oil, hydro power potential, coal, iron, copper, salt, and limestone and so on. Our farmers produce wheat, cotton, rice, sugarcane, eggs, fruit and vegetables. We have large cattle farms which produce meat and milk in abundance. Primary industry includes textiles, food processing, pharmaceuticals, construction materials, fertilizer, and paper products. Major exports comprise textile products, rice, leather goods, sports goods, carpets, rugs, and chemicals. Pakistan imports petroleum, machinery, plastic, edible oil, iron, steel, tea, and paper. Coal reserves are estimated at 175 billion tons. This would equate to 618 billion barrels of crude oil. When compared to oil reserves this is more than twice the amount of the top four countries. Natural gas production is at a high level in Pakistan. Estimated reserves are 885.3 billion cubic meters (as of January 2009). Gas fields are expected to last for another 20 years. The Sui gas field is the largest, accounting for 26% of Pakistan's gas production. Daily production is 19 million cubic meters a day. Under the barren mountains of Balochistan and hot sands of Sindh, there is unlimited amount of oil and gas reserves not touched yet. And still further, we have fertile lands of Punjab, ready to feed a population twice as big as we are now, the best irrigation system (waiting for more water reservoirs to enrich it), and the best quality cotton and rice. Balochistan is a mountainous desert area, consisting of 3.5 lakh sq. kms. It borders Iran, Afghanistan and its Southern Boundary is the Arabian Sea with strategically important port of Gwadar on the Makran Coast, commanding approach to the Strait of Hormuz. Its total population is 7.5 million. Balochistan occupies 43.6 percent of Pakistan's total area and is least populated. Gwadar is an important district of Balochistan, having 600 Kilometres long border. Until 1958, it had been a part of the State of Oman. On December 1958, Pakistan bought it with an amount of 550 million Rupees. It was suggested as a suitable site for port in 1964 and thus in 2002, the construction of the port was initiated with the help of China. The Gwadar Port, being the third largest port of the world, is situated at the doorway of the Persian Gulf (180 nautical miles from the Strait of Hormuz through which 40% of World's Oil passes) and at the largest trade route of the world. It is due to this fact that makes it geo-strategically more important to the world powers. Rickodek, the part of Chagi (Tehsil of Balochistan), means “Hillock of Gold. Pakistan and International media has highlighted a new discussion on 'Rickodek'. It is the world's 4th largest deposit of gold and copper. It has been discovered that the mountains of Balochistan are filled up with much costly reservoirs of mineral. Nevertheless, it has also been proved that the gold and copper reserves of about $260 billion are buried under the Rickodek. But it is very unfortunate that Pakistan is dependent upon foreign companies for exploring, mining, surveying and refining of our natural wealth. Balochistan has been divided among Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan. It has been overlooked since the times of the British Rulers. It is that part of Pakistan that consists of different linguistic and ethnic groups Pakistani leadership must focus on exploration of natural resources and their scientific management. Properly managed natural resources can play a vital role in national growth. Extensive geological survey is required to discover the resource potential.

You can now support this channel via Patreon, by accessing the link bellow.

The Australian Antarctic Territory (AAT) is a part of Antarctica administered by the Australian Antarctic Division, an agency of the federal Department of the Environment and Energy. The territory's history dates to a claim on Enderby Land made by the United Kingdom in 1841, which was subsequently expanded and eventually transferred to Australia in 1933. It is the largest territory of Antarctica claimed by any nation by area. Only four other countries; New Zealand, United Kingdom, France and Norway recognise Australia's claim to sovereignty in Antarctica. 2. AAT consists of all the islands and territory south of 60°S and between 45°E and 160°E, except for Adélie Land (136°E to 142°E), which divides the territory into Western AAT (the larger portion) and Eastern AAT. It is bounded by Queen Maud Land in the West and by Ross Dependency in the East. The area is estimated at 5,896,500 km2. 3. Whaling in Australian Antarctic territorial waters is controversial and has received international attention. Anti-whaling protest groups, in particular Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, have been active within the Australian Antarctic territorial waters. Sea Shepherd small boat crews have had multiple encounters with Japanese ships that claim to be on research expeditions while opponents argue this is only a "cover" for banned commercial whaling. The Australian Whale Sanctuary, in Australian Antarctic territory, is not recognised by the government of Japan. Anti-whaling legislation passed by the Australian Government applies to Australian territorial waters. However, Australia's claims of sovereignty over the Australian Antarctic Territory—and thus sovereignty over Australian Antarctic territorial waters—are recognised by only the United Kingdom, New Zealand, France and Norway. 4. During the early 1980s there was a brief debate in Australia on whether or not to allow mining on the mineral-rich continent. Several mining proposals have been discussed and have all been rejected. On the 9 August 2011, influential Australian think-tank, the Lowy Institute, published a report warning Canberra against complacency when it comes to its claim. The global treaty banning resource exploitation becomes reviewable in 2041, and some states may then decide to withdraw from it considering the continent's mineral deposits. 5. The Davis Station, commonly called Davis, is one of three permanent bases and research outposts in Antarctica managed by the Australian Antarctic Division. It serves as the capital of the AAT. 6. Several station operate in this territory and not just from Australia. 5 other countries have research stations in AAT. 7. The Australian Government views Antarctic tourism as a legitimate activity, provided it is conducted safely in an environmentally responsible manner.

SOUNDBITE (English): Roger Barrett, chief representative of Foreign Business Development Association in North Korea "This project is very significant for North Korea.

Tanks holding liquid in gold plant - tilts down STORYLINE: North Korea's first gold mine with foreign backing is ready to start full production with a target output of 500 kilogrammes of gold per year. The facility has been set up with money from Singapore investors, backed by equipment and expertise from Australia and the United Kingdom. It's located near Pujon, high in the mountains, in a rarely visited area that takes some ten hours to drive to from the capital Pyongyang. North Korea is rich in mineral resources and has a tradition of mining and heavy industry. But since the end of Soviet support, experts estimate that North Korea's industrial production is running at less than twenty percent of its previous output. The Kumsan Joint Venture is the first time since the Korean war that capitalist foreign investors have tried to make money from gold in North Korea. The venture's managing director, Li Gil Chuu, says a lot has been achieved here in a short space of time. But for the international investors, there has been a difficulty: importing a necessary chemical - sodium cyanide - into North Korea. That's because international trade in this dangerous substance is controlled. And, in the case of North Korea in particular, particularly in the case of North Korea, there are fears that this "dual use" chemical could be employed to create weapons of mass destruction. Sodium cyanide is normally used to make pesticides and in industrial plating, but treated with acids, it can be turned into a lethal nerve gas or blood agent. As recently as September, exports of sodium cyanide to North Korea caused controversy in South Korea. In a recent revelation, a South Korean company was found to have sold 107 tons of sodium cyanide to a Chinese firm from June to September last year. North Koreans involved in the effort.

Mike Hookem Blasts the Tories on UK Fisheries
Mike Hookem today tore into the Tories while launching UKIP's new fisheries policy saying, "Ted Heath betrayed the fishermen... and Theresa May will do exactly the same!" Mr Hookem's comments came as he launched UKIP's new "Future for Fishing" policy, which aims to return the UK's 200-mile exclusive economic zone to British control; and find investment to rebuild our fishing fleet. Speaking after the policy launch held at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London, Mr Hookem said, "I wrote to Geroge Eustice asking for answers on fishing months ago. Only this week have I had a reply saying that he can't answer the questions as Parliament is no longer sitting." "Eustice has had this letter weeks. Weeks! He could have replied the very next day if he was committed to the fishermen of this country. This is the evidence that tells me they are going to betray the fishermen once again!" "I lived through the betrayal and saw my community devastated as a result and that's what is going to happen again." "That is why I am saying to all the fishing communities across the country, that if you want a Brexit - if you want your industry back - there's only one party you can vote for. There's only one party that's actually fighting for the fishing industry, and that's UKIP." UKIP's fisheries policy in full: Repeal the Common Fisheries Policy in its entirety. Immediately restore sovereignty and control over the entire UK Exclusive Economic Zone, including for marine, seabed, and mineral resources therein, in accordance with international law. Ensure that the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy is not carried over as ‘stand-alone’ UK legislation under the ‘Great Repeal Bill’, and ensure that the fishing industry is not used as a bargaining chip in the EU exit negotiations. Give immediate notice of withdrawal from the London Fisheries Convention of 1964 under Article 15 of that Convention. Mrs May could have done this on becoming Prime Minister, and should certainly have done at the time of invoking Article 50, given the two years’ notice would then coincide with her stated objective to exit the EU in mid-2019. Launch an inclusive and collaborative consultation period with all sectors of the fishing community to culminate in the creation of a new Fisheries Bill. The new Fisheries Bill would include the ‘ring-fencing’ of a proportion of repatriated fish stocks to be used to help rebuild the industry’s grassroots. Because the UK fishing industry cannot be restored overnight to its former size and strength there can be a time-limited, paid license fee option for selected foreign flagged vessels to fish within the UK’s territorial waters during the industry’s rebuilding period. Proceeds from these licences would be directly reinvested into the fishing industry and processing sectors. Strengthen the economic link in the Merchant Shipping Act, to ensure all fish caught within the UK’s EEZ – including those fished by foreign flagged vessels operating under licence (as in item v.) – are landed and sold in the UK. This would help finance and attract investment in the newly developing UK fishing industry and support struggling fishing communities. HM Government should reject the doctrine of ‘vested rights’ for foreign flagged vessels. The bonanza they have enjoyed since 1973 has come to an end. Create, train and equip a new Fisheries Protection Force that would use a mixture of technologies in sea and land-based methods to police the UK’s Exclusive Economic Zone. We will ensure that we work towards a fisheries management system that stops the ‘obscenity’ of discards and makes the best use of all fish caught. Besides the gains in the fishing industry itself, the abandonment of the CFP can also be used to regenerate the UK boat and shipbuilding industry. HM Government could kick-start a civil ship and boat building programme for the growing fishing industry. This is in line with the World Trade Organisations Trade Related Technical Assistance programmes and would produce much needed skilled employment in often economically depressed areas. Ensure that shore-based administration and licence issuing facilities are fully funded and equal to the tasks of carrying out the implementation of new policy.

South Africa mineral resources minister reassures investors in ailing mining sector
South Africa's new Mines Minister Mosebenzi Zwane has acknowledged that the mining sector in the country is in distress but measures were underway to restore its fortunes. Speaking at the annual investing in Africa Mining Indaba, thats underway in Cape Town, the minister told investors that the sector has faced some of its toughest years since 2012 with a significant decline in production across all mining platforms. 47 000 jobs have been lost between 2012 and 2015. Investment into the country has also declined at a faster rate than anywhere else in the world.

"Unbreakable Alien Ring" Found In Geode? (Among Others)
Support Us On Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/MysteryHistory We Are Also On Steemit: https://steemit.com/@mysteryhistory There has been a wealth of documented artefacts found within very ancient sediment, coal seams, minerals, and even stones and geodes. All indicating that a vastly different story has taken place upon our earth, to that of what the majority, stubbornly persist in assuming. So many pieces of evidence in fact, it seems, that it has been an impossible task for an unknown group of tyrants, who, for whatever reason, have attempted to conceal or supress such discoveries… Or more importantly, hide the historical tales in which they are all trying to tell us. And these next three, are no exception. The Lanzhou Stone, Discovered in 1999 by Zhilin Wang in a remote mountainous area in northwest China. Upon research being undertaken it was established to be unexplainable. The rock is made of an unknown material, and the metal artefact embedded within, may quite possibly have alien origins. As reported in the ‘Lanzhou Morning News’ on June 26, 2002: "More than 10 geologists, physicists and other specialists from such institutes as the National Land Resources Bureau of china, the Institute of Geology and Minerals Research, and the School of Resources and environment, all eventually studied the possible origins of the stone. The results of these examinations, the possible explanations for its formation or indeed origin, were never released. Amazingly however, the scientists unanimously concluded that the stone is currently one of the most valuable in China, or possibly the world… When pressed for further explanation it was disclosed that the rock will apparently be extremely important for future research and quote, “Archaeological studies." Any further disclosure regarding the scientist’s discoveries has remained elusive… The Wolfsegg Iron, has a similarly suppressed story, over 20 million years old, this extremely ancient, and clearly once worked cube of iron, may have also come from space. Indeed, that is a conclusion many educated researchers arrived at. Although attempts to discredit such claims involve recent testing which has shown the cube lacks usual elements present in meteoritic material… They all avoid mentioning its strong magnetic characteristics, a signature uncannily similar to that found in meteorites and other objects with an “other worldly” origin. It was discovered when a workman at the Braun iron foundry in Schondorf, Austria, was breaking up a block of lignite that had been mined at Wolfsegg. In 1886, mining engineer Adolf Gurlt reported the object to the Natural History Society of Bonn, who noted that the object was coated with a thin layer of rust, was made of iron, and had a specific gravity of 7.75. Early descriptions of the object appeared in contemporary editions of the scientific journals Nature and L'Astronomie, identified at the time by numerous scientists as being a fossil meteorite. Now virtually unanimously concluded to have been manmade, it has thus been unexplainable… stolen at one point, it was strangely returned to another museum, now without a compelling mainstream explanation, it has simply been condemned to the history books as some form of elaborate hoax. Impossible artefacts have been found in the most unusual of places, for example, a seemingly unbreakable piece of unknown metal, possibly a ring of ancient, or, according to man’s official history, alien origin found within a Geode, encapsulated for over 200 million years… It is now largely presumed that the object was quickly sold to a private collector, most people begin with good intentions but sadly, are often allured away by various means of temptation, subsequently allowing such relics to disappear into the archives of the past. This is mikes contact email to coast to coast, Quote, “My name is Mike Walters and I'm an amateur geologist. I often come across geodes. I have opened thousands of these and have found beautiful crystal and mineral deposits. However, I have never found anything like this: it appears to be polished metal. This report, and the accompanying image, it seems, is all that we will ever see regarding this compelling artefact. A mysterious fate experienced by many such artefacts, for example, sadly, only the wolfsegg iron now remains in the public domain for future testing. What secret within our past is felt by some clearly powerful people, as an imperative to keep concealed from the majority of the world? Maybe the question should be, will we ever be ready, or indeed able to find out… Music by Alexander Hoff & Myuu http://www.coasttocoastam.com/photo/view/strange_geode/43769 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfsegg_Iron http://thebiggestsecretsoftheworld.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/lanzhou-stone-proof-of-life-on-other.html

Shame on Global Coal Management! Hands Off Bangladesh!
Press release from the UK branch of the Committee to Protect Oil Gas-Mineral Resources and Port-Power in Bangladesh, in conjunction with Phulbari Solidarity Group, "Today we, the activists from Bangladesh, Tower Hamlets, and London’s environmental organisations, have gathered to call upon the AIM-listed London-based multinational company, GCM Resources Plc, to end its unethical business. The company, GCM Resources, is desperately moving to implement an immense open pit coal mine in northwest Bangladesh, forcibly displacing an estimated 130, 000 people and destroying the homes, lands, and water sources of as many as 220,000 people. If the project is implemented, it will destroy over 14,660 acres of fertile agricultural land that produce three food crops annually, threatening to increase hunger in a country in which over a third of all children and nearly 17 percent of the entire population are undernourished. "GCM’s planned Phulbari coal mine has provoked repeated protests by local people. Three people were killed and over 200 injured when paramilitary officers opened fire on a protest against the project in August 2006. Protests in 2013 forced the company’s CEO, Gary Lye, to abandon a visit to the area. "The project has generated grave concern at national and international levels including the United Nations. On 28 February, 2012, seven UN human rights experts have called for an immediate halt to the project, citing threats to fundamental human rights, including the rights to water, food, adequate housing, freedom from extreme poverty and the rights of indigenous peoples. But GCM is aggressively moving ahead to implement this project. They are selling fraudulent shares in London’s Alternative Investors Market (AIM) without any valid contract with Bangladesh Government. "The situation in Phulbari has become tense and volatile again since Tuesday the 25th November, when the company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Gary N Lye, attempted to visit Phulbari. Gary Lye is the man who called the protesters outsiders in 2006, and commented, after the death of three people shot by police at a demonstration, that "I am a businessman, [ ...] I will continue my business in Phulbari’ regardless of whether there was a bloodshed or not. Therefore, people in Phulbari braved cold to raise their protest at Gary Lye’s attempted visit. Over a thousand people blocked the Dinajpur-Dhaka highway for five hours, demanding Lye’s arrest and expulsion from Bangladesh. In Phulbari there were two days long protests outside GCM’s Bangladesh subsidiary Asia Energy's local office. Violent protests erupted where 2 were injured...
