Huge gold-encrusted rocks unearthed in Australia, miners in West Australia find gold
Huge gold-encrusted rocks unearthed in Australia Huge gold-encrusted rocks unearthed in Australia, miners in West Australia find goldMiners in Western Australia say they have discovered two huge gold-encrusted rocks that are each estimated to be worth millions of dollars. The largest specimen, weighing 95kg (210lb), was found to contain more than 2,400 ounces of gold, Canadian miner RNC Minerals said. Miners in Australia often extract as little as 2g of gold per tonne of rock, Prof Spearing told the BBC. RNC Minerals said it had extracted 2,200g per tonne. "Very, very seldom do we see results on that level. This is an exceedingly rare find and very exciting," Prof Spearing said. He said that gold particles were often too small to be visible to the human eye. Image copyrightRNC MINERALS Image caption Concentrations of gold seen in the Beta Hunt mine The Beta Hunt mine had primarily been running as a nickel operation until last week's discovery. The company had targeted the gold vein, located 500m (1,600ft) underground, after finding traces of gold closer to the surface in June. RNC Minerals chief executive Mark Selby said the largest rocks would go to auction as collector items. The company said it had extracted gold worth about C$15m (£9m; $11m) from a mine near Kalgoorlie last week. One mining engineer described the finds as "exceedingly rare". "People do still record finding nuggets in the goldfields, but typically they are less than several ounces," said Prof Sam Spearing, director of the Western Australia School of Mines at Curtin University. The mining company valued the largest rock at about C$4m. It said the second-largest - a 63kg specimen with an estimated 1,600 ounces of gold - was worth C$2.6m.

Mining Potential Still Strong In Australia - RBS Morgans on Kitco News
Kitco News speaks with James Wilson of RBS Morgans about mining news specifically in Australia. Mining companies in Australia are struggling to be profitable due to lower metals prices, higher costs and lack of funding. "Now States are considering potentially increasing royalties in some of the gold companies," Wilson says when asked about political issues in Australia. "That has put a bit of a scare amongst the local gold companies." With regards to exploration in the country, Wilson says that companies are now focusing on making every drill hole count. "We've seen a number of high profile CEOs depart a number of big mining companies in the past 12 months," Wilson adds. "Newcrest had over 4 or 5 production downgrades in the last few years and multibillion dollar write-downs, so the CEO departure is the icing on the cake." Tune in now to hear more about the mining industry and what mining companies are focusing on to push forward. Kitco News, October 16, 2013.

Thousands of mining jobs are waiting in Western Australia but Aussies don’t want them
Thousands of mining jobs are waiting in Western Australia but Aussies don’t want them: https://www.news.com.au/finance/business/mining/thousands-of-mining-jobs-are-waiting-in-western-australia-but-aussies-dont-want-them/news-story/9abb09bee9c85fc6419597a14e77df3e. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd_ODCcrc4jEWgi4qYyy0wg?sub_confirmation=1  From 2012 to 2016, the mining industry experienced a severe downturn, culling close to 60,000 jobs and making full-time work an almost impossible get. But now, especially in Western Australia and Queensland, the mining industry is on the road to recovery — and companies are begging Aussies to come and work for them. According to the latest data from SEEK, the mining, resource and energy sector has consistently recorded the largest growth in job ads for the past 11 months. The sector is throwing out 32 per cent more job ads now than it was at the same time last year and is posting almost four times more job ads than Australia’s average. But just because mining companies are putting out thousands of ads and offering salaries paying well over $150,000 doesn’t mean Aussies are picking them up. Earlier this week, the CEO of WA’s Chamber of Minerals and Energy backed a migration agreement that would hopefully combat a severe skills shortage in the mining region of the Goldfields. If approved, the Designated Area Migration Agreement would allow overseas workers to be flown over to work in the mines and would make them exempt from the skilled migrants requirement. Chief executive Paul Everingham told the ABC there were more than 1000 vacancies in the Kalgoorlie-Boulder mining sector and said the region was at crisis point.  “You can’t sugar coat that — they’re available now and they’re not being filled, so however you can get them (workers),” Mr Everingham said. “All Australian companies want to employ Australians first, but if there aren’t enough Australians … we have got to remember there’s an infrastructure boom going on in NSW. “So if we have to set up special immigration or work zones, our members would definitely welcome the ability to get access to skilled workers immediately.” The WA mining industry is advertising for thousands of jobs ranging from cleaners to tradesmen to university-educated engineers. But following Mr Everidge’s comments, a number of people involved in the state’s mining industry have said more needs to be done to make relocating an attractive proposition. Despite the huge salaries fly-in fly-out workers earn, most complain of having no work-life balance. FIFO workers typically have higher rates of suicide, struggle with depression due to long hours and loneliness and report higher rates of workplace bullying and alcoholism. In 2015, the West Australian government conducted a 10-month investigation into the state’s FIFO workforce. Lifeline WA admitted in October last year it still had no idea exactly how many FIFO workers were affected by mental illness or how many had committed suicide while away from their families to work in the state’s mines. Even the report issued after the lengthy investigation admitted “the inquiry struck several problem areas in relation to statistics”. “Clear data was difficult to find in the areas of: a definitive total number of workers employed in the Western Australia resources industry on a FIFO #Thousands, #mining, #jobs, #waiting, #WesternAustralia, #Aussies, #don’t, #want, #them #miningindustry, #mentalillness, #mentalhealth, #workersdying, #miningindustryaccounts, #flyinflyoutworkers, #Australiangovernment, #miningsector, #resourcesindustry, #Australiancompanies, #parttimework, #miningcompanies, #miningregion, #mentalhealthissues, #migrationagreement, #skilledmigrantsrequirement, #Companiestalk, #miningjobs, #worklifebalance, #suicidestatistics, #prevalencerate, #suiciderates, #crisispoint, #energysector, #productionsites, #skillsshortage, #problemareas, #WesternAustralia, #Australia, #AustraliaandNewZealand, #Oceania, #Queensland, #UniversityofWesternAustralia, #AustralianBureauofStatistics, #CommunityServices, #MentalHealthCommission, #ChamberofMineralsandEnergy, #PeterMiller, #PaulEveringham, #NatalieWolfe

Thirlmere Lakes, damaging coal mining (ABC News)
Two teams of scientists have concluded that longwall coal mining has damaged the Thirlmere Lakes, part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage property, adding weight to calls for getting damaging coal mining out of Sydney’s drinking water catchment. In an ABC news report, the Lakes system is described by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service as being “of international significance on the basis of its outstanding natural values.” According to former mining consultant and co-author of one of the research papers, Dr Philip Pells, there “is a strong body of evidence now that the groundwater lost to the [Tahmoor] coal mine has impacted on the lakes." Dr Pells described the damage as severe, the overall impact of which means that the National Park of which they are a key feature, is “stuffed.” Protect our water visit: www.lockthegate.org.au

Australian political parties got $200 million in donations last year  | Breaking News US/Australia
★More News Channel - Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v Australian political parties raked in more than $200 million in donations last financial year - but they didn't all come from wealthy benefactors.The biggest single donor was Prime Minister propping up his own reelection chances by stumping up $1.75 million.His party received about $95 million in the 2016-17 financial year, including the second biggest donation of $500,000 from Kerry Packer's widow Roslyn.This was considerably less than the $71 million the Labor Party got following its narrow election defeat in the first month of the reporting period.Mining companies were, as usual, also big donors - particularly those owned on controlled by foreign or dual-nationals.Chinese businesswoman Sally Zou's Aus Gold Mining Group gave more than $360,000 to the Liberal Party, with $316,064 going to the South Australian branch.The flamboyant businesswoman caused a stir by creating the 'Julie Bishop Glorious Foundation' last year, before dropping the foreign minister's name nine days later.Another Chinese billionaire, Chau Chak Wing, downsized his usual six-figure donations, giving just $30,000 to the NSW branch this year.The property developer gave $860,000 the year before, including $700,000 to the Liberals, through his Hong Kong Kingson Investment company.The most controversial payment was $2,200 from Indian mining company Adani, which is behind the $16.5 billion Carmichael coal mine in central Queensland. The infamous mine has been relentlessly protested against by anti-coal groups and environmentalists concerned about damage to the Great Barrier Reef.Labor Party national secretary Noah Carroll returned the two donations, according to Australian Electoral Commission records.The money appeared to be payment for attendance at ALP events rather than a direct cash donation.Tobacco giant Philip Morris also gave $20,000 to the Liberal Democratic Party and $15,000 to the National Party.The donations were controversial because Labor banned tobacco donations in 2004 and the Liberals followed suit in 2013, but the Nationals did not.A cigarette manufacturer giving to the Liberal Democrats was not surprising giving their 'pro-choice' stance on smoking.The libertarian party wants to abolish the tobacco excise and let businesses and workers decide if they want to operate in a smokey environment.The federal government drafted laws which would ban donations from foreign bank accounts, non-citizens, and foreign entities to all types of political campaigning.It said the changes would ensure only those with a meaningful connection to Australia could influence domestic politics and election campaigns.Many of these donations would be illegal once those laws go through, though Mr Chau and Ms Zou were both Australian dual citizens.One Nation leader Pauline Hanson mostly relied on taxpayer funding, rather than donations, to prop up her 2016 federal election campaign.The disclosures show Pauline Hanson's One

UGL CIMIC makes $525m australia news
Construction and engineering business CIMIC has made a $524.5 million takeover bid for engineering contractor UGL, as UGL's shares have plummeted on the back of a downturn in mining. Key points: CIMIC, formerly Leighton Holdings, launches $3.15 per share offer for UGL Deal values UGL at $524.5 million UGL shares up nearly 50pc around midday to $3.17; shares peaked at $9.44 in 2007 The offer, at $3.15 per share, is a 47.2 per cent premium to UGL's share market close of $2.14 on October 7. "CIMIC believes UGL's competencies are complementary to CIMIC's existing operations or enhance CIMIC's capabilities in new activities," the company, formerly known as Leighton Holdings, said in a statement. UGL peaked at $9.44 a share in 2007, but has since suffered a beating on the back of falling commodity prices and a downturn in mining. CIMIC currently owns 13.8 per cent of the company. In June, UGL's share price plummeted after it announced delays, disruptions and cost blowouts on the $US34 billion Ichthys LNG joint venture in Darwin. In a statement to the ASX, UGL said its board would meet to consider the offer and provide further advice to shareholders. "In the meantime, the board of UGL recommends that shareholders take no action in relation to the CIMIC announcement," UGL's statement said. UGL sold its property business DTZ to a private equity-led group of investors including TPG Capital and PAG Asia Capital in 2014. UGL shares surged 48.6 per cent to $3.17 in midday trade on the offer, its highest price since early June and its biggest one-day jump since listing.

Already there are close to 50,000 abandoned mines across Australia - if we don’t act now more and more companies will go bankrupt, close mines and walk away. The most serious problem is water: new research shows we are 40 years behind the US, allowing unfilled pits to remain after mining which drain surrounding water resources and leach toxins and salts into our soil and waterways. Modern coal mines have pits that may extend 150 metres or more below the natural water table, draining precious groundwater. For example the final pit left behind at the Liddell mine, NSW, is expected to drain 57 million litres of groundwater per day!

About Australian Bauxite Limited Australian Bauxite Limited (ABx) (ASX:ABZ) is an exploration company that holds the core of the Eastern Australian Bauxite Province with 29 tenements in Queensland, NSW, Victoria and Tasmania covering over 7,000 km2. ABx bauxite is high quality and can be processed into alumina at low temperature -- the type that is in short supply globally. At the company's first drilling prospect in Inverell, northern NSW, a maiden resource of 22 million tonnes has been reported from drilling less than 10% of the identified bauxite deposit. Australian Bauxite Limited aspires to identify bauxite resources in excess of 200 million tonnes in one of the world's best bauxite provinces. ABx has the potential to create three state-significant bauxite processing projects, one each in Queensland, New South Wales and Tasmania and has several bauxite deposits that are favourably located for direct shipping of bauxite to export customers. Our business plan is to prove up the largest tonnage of high quality bauxite resources of any comparable company and to market premium-priced bauxite products into both the rapidly growing Asia-Pacific region (especially China) and the large eastern Australian aluminium industry.
