A Career in Gold Mining (JTJS52010)
 
08:00
It's an exciting prospect to go underground, extract rock and process it until you are left with a solid bar of gold but that's exactly what Caleb Lese from Dunedin will find out all about when he heads to Macraes mine in Otago. Heading underground he learns that the 12 hour shifts begin and end with a blast and that the multi-million dollar subterranean digging machines are one of the main tools used by the mine. While these 'bogger' machines can be used by an operator, they can also be operated remotely when the area being worked on is unsupported. Caleb is keen to see if operating a bogger remotely is as easy as it looks but soon learns it might take a little more training to become proficient! At the processing plant, Caleb finds out more about how the gold is extracted from the sulphur rock and how from the plant processing control room around 95 per cent of the plant can be managed. Then it's off to see if there is any gold at the end of the rainbow and to his surprise, the $800,000 bar of gold he holds is much heavier than he expected! There are a wide range of roles within the gold mining industry and much of the training can be done on the job. For Caleb, it is certainly something to think about for his future.

The Boddington Hot Seaters - This is our story - Cinema Ad
 
02:01
These mums are like gold for a goldmine. The 'Boddington Hot Seaters' are a group of lively mums (and one dad) who have dramatically increased production at the Boddington Gold Mine, 130 kilometres from Perth. Newmont Mining identified a large loss of production time occurring while fulltime equipment operators on twelve hour shifts took morning tea and lunch breaks. This was equating to thousands of tonnes of ore not being moved. In an inspired move, the Boddington management team decided to train and employ local women who were looking for work between 9am and 2pm, to relieve the fulltime operators. Danny Foley explains the concept: "Hot Seating is where you change equipment as quickly and safely as possible. It's one out and one in, and go." These mums certainly pull their weight, and then some. As Cathy points out, "Fully loaded, the trucks are about 500 tonne." Thankfully these monstrous machines are fully automatic and have as Cathy describes "a better turning circle than my ute." From an operational perspective the 'Mother's Shift', as it's known, covered the production downtime during the breaks of fulltime equipment operators, with an estimated 120 to 160 hours of equipment operational time gained. That equates to millions of dollars a year. But on a personal level, the job is priceless. As Louise says, "it's massive for me and my self confidence." Rochelle's daughter Jade has even noticed the change in her Mum. "It made her a lot more confident, I'm proud of her. And she's made a lot of friends." Importantly, the mums have gained industry training skills and experience while still being able to drop off and collect their kids from school. As Rochelle says, "To go to work when the kids are at school, knowing they're safe and happy - we are lucky." Kylie agrees, "It's nice to be able to pick them up from school. We're not missing out on anything with this job." Cathy chimes in with a smile, "Happy wife, happy life, there's no question about that." But let's not forget Patrick - he's the one bloke on the 'Mother's Shift', and he gets to drive these colossal machines around for a living -- making him one of the happiest home dads in the world! The move to employ locals won the '2012 Outstanding Company Initiative' award with the Chamber of Minerals and Energy WA (CMEWA) the 'Innovation in Training and Development' award with the Australian Mines and Minerals Association (AMMA) in May and was a finalist at the Australian Human Resource Industry Award. Despite all this recognition the Boddington Hot Seaters still have their priorities straight. Cathy puts it nicely, "my kids are worth more to me than a truck load of gold." Thanks to this great initiative from Australian Mining, she can give them all the attention they need. For more great stories from Australian Mining, please visit: http://www.thisisourstory.com.au

FSRN Gold Mining in Haiti Exposes Corruption
 
04:07
As delegates and activists from around the world gather this week in Brazil for the RIO+20 conference on sustainable development, they'll be discussing a broad range of issues, including food security, urban growth, jobs and disaster response. Advocates are also drawing attention to the corporate influence at the UN-backed conference and calling for an alternative to extractive industries, such as mining. According to a draft text of the RIO+20 resolution obtained and published by the Guardian today, delegates will include mining as a way to alleviate poverty and help countries to meet development goals. The text also calls for strong government oversight of mining. Mining plays a big role in many developing countries, including Haiti. As the country continues to recover from the devastating earthquake of 2010 and pervasive government corruption, foreign companies are rushing in to mine for gold. According to a ten-month investigation by local reporters and students with Haiti Grassroots Watch, one third of the land in northern Haiti is under exploration, research or extraction by foreign companies and some residents are worried about environmental destruction. One of those residents is Elie Florestan from Grand Bois. "I think a mine might cause lots of problems for us. They say the mine would use our river. They say our water might become polluted. And that many families will be displaced." Two of the foreign companies most aggressively pushing for mining are Eurasian Minerals, based in Canada, and Newmont, based in the US. According to Haiti Grassroots Watch, two Haitian ministers recently signed a "Memorandum of Understanding" with Newmont and Eurasian that says the companies can begin drilling at one of their sites, a violation of Haitian law, which states no drilling can occur without a mining convention. The mining companies have promised to provide much-needed jobs in the area and some residents expressed support for the projects. Anthony Silvestre, a resident of Morne Bossa said some of the land in his area was rich with the mineral. "We feel very strongly about something: we like foreigners a lot. When foreigners come and work with us we're proud and it's beautiful. If they make a mine at Morne Bossa it would be as if God himself came down from heaven." But communities in nearby Dominican Republic are already confronting the costs of mining. The Canadian companies Barrick and Goldcorp are teaming up to develop an open pit mine. Barrick has already been forced to clean up a river polluted with sulphuric acid from a previous government-backed project in the area. Some residents described being displaced from their land for the new mine. "They moved us to this neighbohood, with nothing, no jobs no land. We're farmers! But we have nowhere to plant except the yard." In Haiti, residents and community journalists are organizing to demand more transparency in the process. But the pace is picking up. One of the mining firms, Eurasian Minerals, has collected 44,000 samples and Newmont is considering at least five mine sites. The government's role has also been called into question. A former Minister of the Economy and Finances is now a paid consultant for Newmont and residents have struggled to get information about the projects. Arnolt Jean is a farmer in Lakwev. He calls the government irresponsible. "Yes, the country is poor. But what's underground could make us rich. If the government did what it was supposed to do, and exploit the minerals that are underground, the country would not be poor, but since what's underground stays underground, rich people figure out how to exploit the minerals, so they can become richer. Those who live on top of the ground stay poor. Those who exploit what's underground get even richer." Despite millions of dollars of aid money pouring into Haiti, the government still lacks resources to adequately monitor mining or oversee future projects.
