12 Biggest Mines
 
07:39
These huge open-pits in the ground can either be called mines or quarry and they give us amazing things like gold, silver, and copper! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 7. The Barrick Goldstrike Mine Owned and operated by Barrick Gold, which is the largest gold mining company, the goldstrike mine happens to be the largest gold mine in all of North America. Located in Eureka County, Nevada, the goldstrike mine is comprised of 3 different mines, the larger of the three is the Betze-Post open-pit mine, the Meikle, and the Rodeo, both of which are found underground. This complex of mines is also the largest Carlin-type mine in the world. First opened way back in 1986, the mine not only produces gold but silver as well, which just so happens to be where Nevada gets its famous nickname, the “Silver State”, from. 6. The Oyu Tolgoi Mine The name for this combined open-pit mining project translates to Turquoise Hill and is located in the southern region of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. The mines that are filled with gold-copper ore deposits are actually relatively new and were only recently discovered back in 2001 by the Canadian company Ivanhoe Mines. It’s expected that the mine will reach full capacity in the year 2021. It’s believed that this mine contains around 2,700,000 tons of copper and another 1.7 million ounces of gold. Like with all other mines, the environmental impact that the Oyu Tolgoi mine is often criticized since it is located in such a dry area and uses more than one billion gallons of water each month. 5. The Chuquicamata (choo-kee-kə-mah-tə) Mine In terms of volume, the chuquicamata mine, or the “Chuqui” mine as it’s more commonly known is the second deepest open-pit mine on the planet. This mine can be found in the northern area of Chile where its main export is that of copper. This has been the country’s main export and staple that is crucial to how the people of Chile rely on an income and it’s here that the metal is called “Chile’s salary” ever since they became dependent on the copper industry back when the first World War ended. Copper actually makes up about a third of all the country’s foreign trade but that 33 percent was once at a high percentage of 75% a few years earlier. 4. The Dionysos Marble Quarry This quarry lies on the Penteli Mountain in the town and municipality of Dionysos, Attica in Greece. It’s here that the world famous Dionysos pentelicon marble is extracted. The quarry has been opened for more than a 100 years and it was back in 1949 that it was owned by the Dionysos Marble Company. The quarry currently has 2 underground sites and 9 above ground sites where the marble is extracted. The marble here is protected by law and is solely used for the Acropolis Restoration Project and other ancient buildings in Athens. 3. The Udachnaya Pipe The name of this open-pit mine literally translates to lucky pipe and can be found right outside of the Arctic Circle in Sakha Republic, Russia. This mine was discovered way back in June of 1955 and is believed to contain around 225.8 million carats of diamonds with an estimated 10.4 million carats harvested annually. The diamond mine was taken over by the Russian diamond company Alrosa back in 2010. This is mine also happens to be the third deepest open-pit mine in the world at a depth of 1,970 feet. 2. The Mir Mine Occasionally called the Mirny Mine, this was once a former open-pit diamond mine that is located in Mirny, Eastern Siberia, Russia. This mine reaches a depth of 1,722 feet deep, along with a diameter of 3,900 feet making it one of the largest excavated holes to ever exist. The mine was first discovered back in June of 1955 by a group of three Soviet geologists. It proved to be rather difficult as it seemed like there was always one problem arising after another. The cold winter months provided harsh conditions that slowed production, the mine suffered a flood in the 90’s, and surface operations would cease in June of 2001 with underground operations still moving forward until the whole mine was permanently shut down in 2004. 1. The Bingham Canyon Mine Known by the locals at the Kennecott Copper Mine, the Bingham Canyon Mine is located in the southwest region of Salt Lake City, Utah, in the United States. This massive chasm is known for being the largest man-made excavation in all of the world. Owned by the Rio Tinto Group, the production of this mine was started an astonishing 110-years ago and since then the mine measures at being 2.5 miles long, 0.6 miles deep, and covers a distance of 1,900 acres. The mine endured a tremendous landslide back in 2013 and then a smaller one later that same year.

NOTE: Although this video shows an up-close look at the blasting process, NEVER go near an active surface mine or blast site without Federal training and permission. FYI, the white bags are Emulsified Ammonium Nitrate. The read cap is TNT and the silver rod that is connected to it by the yellow wire is the blasting cap, it's what ignites the shot. The white pebbles that are emptied into the blast holes by the powder trucks are the main explosive- "ANFO" or Ammonium Nitrate, which is a mixture of fertilizer and diesel fuel. Once the holes are filled with explosives, rock fines or "stemming" is pushed back in the holes and packed down to keep the explosives under pressure. After all the holes are loaded and rigged up, it's time for the fireworks! And remember kids, don't try this at home! Want to see more Blasting?

Gold in Nevada: New Strike at Last Hope Mine 1927 Kinograms Newsreel

more at http://quickfound.net/ "New gold strike in Nevada." Silent. Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_mining_in_Nevada Gold mining in Nevada, a state of the United States, is a major industry, and one of the largest sources of gold in the world. Nevada currently mines 79% of all the gold in the United States, which is equivalent to 5,640,000 troy ounces (175 t) in 2009. Total gold production from Nevada recorded from 1835 to 2008 totals 152,000,000 troy ounces (4,700 t), worth over US $228 billion at 2011 prices. Almost all the gold in Nevada comes from large open pit mining and cyanide heap leaching recovery... Unlike coal and oil extraction, where mining companies pay royalties for minerals obtained from public lands, gold mining companies do not pay any royalties for deposits claimed on federal public lands. This is because gold mines on public land operate under the General Mining Act of 1872. Although Nevada was known much more for silver in the 19th century, many of the early silver-mining districts also produced considerable quantities of gold. The Comstock Lode, for instance, produced 8,600,000 troy ounces (270 t) of gold through 1959, and the Eureka district produced 1,200,000 troy ounces (37 t). And the Robinson copper mine has produced well over 2,700,000 troy ounces (84 t) gold, along with over 4 billion pounds (1,500,000 tonnes) of copper... Carlin Trend Gold was discovered in the vicinity of Carlin in Eureka County in the 1870s, but production was small. Placer deposits were discovered in 1907, but the deposits were too small to cause much excitement. It was not until 1961 that the Newmont Mining Corporation found the large low-grade gold deposit at Carlin that the mining industry began to take notice. The Carlin mine began producing gold in 1965... It was not until the gold price shot up in the late 1970s that mining companies rushed to look for similar deposits. The Carlin Trend, part of what is also known as the Carlin Unconformity by geologists, is 5 miles (8 km) wide and 40 miles (60 km) long running northwest-southeast, has since produced more gold than any other mining district in the United States. The trend surpassed 50,000,000 troy ounces (1,600 t) of gold in 2002... Golden Fleece Mine (Nevada) The Golden Fleece Mine, Washoe County, Nevada, near Poeville site, was operated by the Golden Fleece Gold & Silver Mining Company, incorporated on February 2, 1875, which held one patented claim on the site. W. F. Stewart had published a geological report on the mine in 1879, which had an eight-foot vein of ore. The small mining site was located at latitude: 39.584753, longitude: -119.903055 and has received more interest from historical point of view, than for its yield of gold. Several other mines were operating in the Poeville Mining District during 1863 and mid 1880. Goldfield Goldfield was discovered in 1900, and began major gold production in 1902. The ore occurs in altered shear zones in Tertiary dacite and andesite. Total gold production through 1959 was 4,200,000 troy ounces (130 t). Robinson/Ely The Robinson district at Ely, Nevada produced about 3,000,000 troy ounces (93 t) of gold through 1990... http://nvghosttowns.topcities.com/pastpro/gilbert.htm The Hardscrabble district was first mined in the 1870s but it was short-lived and little was produced. During the 1880s, a small camp called Garfield, named after the recently assassinated President James Garfield, formed five miles south of the future location of Gilbert. The camp was located next to the Alto Divide mine at Cook Spring. A small mill operated there for many years. The first serious mining in the northern part of the district began in June 1896 when Herman Gilbert and Homer Thompson, searching for a rich lode Charles Lampson had found earlier but then lost the location of, located a new lode they named the Carrie mine. The partners moved a house from Candelaria to the mine. The mine proved most promising but in May 1900, the boom began at Tonopah and the two men headed there to seek their fortune leasing mines. Sadly, both died in 1905 before having the chance to return to work the Carrie mine. Gilbert's sons, Fred and Logan, returned in 1916 and leased the Carrie mine from the company formed to manage their father's and Thompson's estate. But in 1918, the brothers sold the mine and went to the booming Divide district, just south of Tonopah. Charles Lampson returned to the area in 1922 and after a couple of years, found an old marker he had placed on his discovery in the 1890s. He proclaimed the mine the Last Hope and showed the Gilbert brothers its location. The mine was officially located on September 10, 1924 but the public didn't find out about the new strike until October 30...

Mysterious Underground Fire Ablaze for 59 Years in Southwest China City
 
01:09
Mysterious underground fire ablaze for 59 years in a district in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality recently attracted media attention. This patch of land, covering some four square meters, is located in a place called Miao'erdong, Dongmen Village in Changshou District, where seven or eight tongues of flames are burning all year round, rain or snow. Local residents come here to boil water every morning and evening. They said water could boil up on the flames within five minutes. "Firewood used to be expensive in the past and sometimes we had to go to the western mountainous areas to carry back bundles of firewood. But it was more convenient here. We came here with our cooking pots and queued to boil sweet potatoes and pigweed," said Wang Mantang, a local villager. It is surprising that the flames cannot be extinguished. Even if water is poured on them, they will become ignited again within three minutes. "They cannot be extinguished. If so, how could there be burning flames? They are burning every minute and every day throughout the year," Wang said. The fire started 59 years ago from a natural gas well that an oil exploitation team drilled back in 1958. But the well was left unexplored because of scarce and scattered natural gas reserves. A dearth of gas has since been emitting all these years and hence the fire keeps burning. As the fire has not affected crops nearby, local authorities have left it as it is. Villagers would circumvent the patch when passing by, and no accident concerned has ever been reported. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20171029/8064786.shtml#!language=1 Subscribe us on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/CCTVPlus CCTV+ official website: http://www.cctvplus.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv-news-content Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent.CCTVPLUS Twitter: https://twitter.com/CCTV_Plus

Vast open pit mine with Hitachi excavator and dump truck at work
 
03:06
Just look at the size of that explosion compared to the massive mining excavators! The pit extends 3,200m from north to south and 2,800m from west to east, with a current depth of 430m. “I have worked with Hitachi excavators over the past seven years and they are very good machines,” says Victor Trotsenko. “The EX3600-6 is comfortable and easy to operate, thanks to the ergonomic levers and excellent visibility." “We selected the Hitachi truck, because of how well it matched the same brand of excavator in terms of capacity. In addition, it made sense to have one after-sales support team from Turkuaz Machinery to cover both products,” says Vladimir Podgaetsky, SSGPO’s Deputy Director of Production.

World's Largest Mine - Bingham Canyon Copper Open Pit Mine
 
04:43
This is one massive hole. Here's text from the current wiki: The Bingham Canyon Mine is an open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, in the Oquirrh Mountains. It is owned by Rio Tinto, 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 0.75 mile (1.2 km) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (7.7 km²). According to Kennecott, it is the world's largest man-made excavation. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 under the name Bingham Canyon Open Pit Copper Mine.

MINING TOUGH AT EARLY HELEN MINE WAWA ONTARIO CANADA 1900S
 
03:35
ALGOMA-CHAPLEAU NEWS Review Life Hazardous, Rough in Early Helen Mine DON PUGH 1973 Olden days in the early Helen Mine between 1898 and 1918 were vastly different from present. The 250 to 400 miners, mostly Finns, Italians and French, freshly ar rived from Europe, and unable to speak English must have felt bewildered and shocked as they first climbed the 187 wooden steps to the Helen plateau. There they viewed the dark grey crusher, hoist house and tall wooden head-frame, surrounded by 35 quickly constructed frame buildings. Far below, in the distance ran mile after mile of billowing dark green sprue, broken by white mountains of tough granite rock and the scattered blue of nurthern lakes and Lake Superior. As the frigid November winds cut off the weekly Manitou and Caribou steamer service, the miners were isolated till Spring, working 12 hours a day, sleeping in company bunkhouses, eating meals of meat and potatoes at the company cookery and buying food and clothing at the company general store. For married men a rough log cabin hewn from the surrounding bush and heated by iron stoves provided accommodation while a small public school and a library of 500 books educated their children.

Most Amazing Open-pit Mines in The World (diamonds, gold, silver, copper...) [igeoNews]
 
03:44
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.[2] 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.

Anthracite Coal Mining circa 1920

Earth Sciences, mining, oil, etc. playlist:: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthracite Anthracite... is a hard, compact variety of mineral coal that has a high luster. It has the highest carbon content, the fewest impurities, and the highest calorific content of all types of coals, which also include bituminous coal and lignite. Anthracite is the most metamorphosed type of coal (but still represents low-grade metamorphism), in which the carbon content is between 92.1% and 98%... Anthracite ignites with difficulty and burns with a short, blue, and smokeless flame. Anthracite is categorized into standard grade, which is used mainly in power generation, and high grade (HG) and ultra high grade (UHG), the principal uses of which are in the metallurgy sector. Anthracite accounts for about 1% of global coal reserves, and is mined in only a few countries around the world. China accounts for the lion's share of production; other producers are Russia, Ukraine, North Korea, Vietnam, the UK, Australia and the US. Total production in 2010 was 670 million tons... Terminology Other terms which refer to anthracite are black coal, hard coal, stone coal (not to be confused with the German Steinkohle or Dutch steenkool which are broader terms meaning all varieties of coal of a stonelike hardness and appearance, like bituminous coal and often anthracite as well, as opposed to lignite, which is softer), blind coal (in Scotland), Kilkenny coal (in Ireland), crow coal (or craw coal from its shiny black appearance), and black diamond. "Blue Coal" is the term for a once-popular and trademarked brand... Anthracite is similar in appearance to the mineraloid jet and is sometimes used as a jet imitation. Anthracite differs from ordinary bituminous coal by its greater hardness, its higher relative density of 1.3--1.4, and lustre, which is often semi-metallic with a mildly brown reflection. It contains a high percentage of fixed carbon and a low percentage of volatile matter... The moisture content of fresh-mined anthracite generally is less than 15 percent. The heat content of anthracite ranges from 22 to 28 million Btu per short ton (26 to 33 MJ/kg) on a moist, mineral-matter-free basis... Anthracite may be considered to be a transition stage between ordinary bituminous and graphite, produced by the more or less complete elimination of the volatile constituents of the former... History of mining and use In southwest Wales, anthracite has been burned as a domestic fuel since at least medieval times. It was mined near Saundersfoot. In the United States, anthracite coal history began in 1790 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, with the discovery of coal made by the hunter Necho Allen in what is now known as the Coal Region... By 1795, an anthracite-fired iron furnace had been built on the Schuylkill River... In spring 1808, John and Abijah Smith shipped the first commercially mined load of anthracite down the Susquehanna River from Plymouth, Pennsylvania, marking the birth of commercial anthracite mining in the United States. From that first mine, production rose to an all-time high of over 100 million tons in 1917. From the late 19th century until the 1950s, anthracite was the most popular fuel for heating homes and other buildings in the northern United States... Many large public buildings, such as schools, were heated with anthracite-burning furnaces through the 1980s... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery... Coal mining has had a lot of developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyor, jacks and shearers...

Australia's Unknown "Oak Island", Excavation attempts.. PLUS site visit to treasure area!
 
09:23
This video follows on from the previous one. We tell the story of the excavations at the site! From the video: The newspaper articles say that about 120 years ago, Kerosene Jack was seen walking around, peering at the ground in various beaches around queenscliff. He was an amiable kind of guy, but became strangely reticent when questioned about any treasure. Nevertheless it is he who may have formed most of the legend of hte treausre. A pirates map had been tatooed on his arm. One article states that he lived in a shack made up of kerosene cans. Another says his name was Jack Karissimo. Some say his name was actually Stringaree Jack. He seems to have died decades before the big treasure-hunting syndicates were able to tackle the site, as an old man. Every newspaper article seems to tell a different tale. It seems people began looking for the treasure in response to Kerosene Jack's drunken tales in the 1920s. One article from the 20s, claimed the council's main interest in the matter was simply filling in holes in the beach which had been dug. Syndicates seem to have been digging since about 1900. A well-funded syndicate in 1935 located one likely location using dowsing rods. They began digging in earnest. In 1937 they abandoned their almost fifty foot shaft as it was filling with water. By 1938, they had resumed their shaft, with a pump which could displace 50,000 gallons per hour. At one time they halted their excavation until they could bring in 'powerful submarine lights'. They also brought in huge steel cylinders to shore up the shaft they had dug, spending thousands of pounds on their enterprise. Alternately, the articles seem to be suggesting these steel cylinders were a kind of bathysphere, for men to work in. By now this syndicate had sunk various timbered shafts around a central hole, with a mining engineer in charge, with boring equipment. Labourers and divers were even hired but in the end, around the beginning of the war, it is said that their reward was only sand. In one newspaper article from 1938, the journalist says he was shown some recovered treasure in Queenscliff, by one hunter. It consisted of pistols and swords supposedly once belonging to Ben Bonito. The hunter claimed that he was refused permission to dig, as he did not specify the location, and they feared he would dig up the main street of Queens-cliff. At 58 feet, the team found an underwater room, but nothing came of it. In the 1950s a new and even larger syndicate took over. They used a dowser who employed two sharp metal rods, to sense electromagnetic energies of the gold. When he walked over the site, the recoil was so hard that the rods snapped back and nearly cut his thumbs off. This was convincing enough for the syndicate to begin digging in earnest. The syndicate was fuelled by the discovery of a seventeenth century Spanish coin near the cliffs. This however may have just been a plant. It was said to have been backed by 'wealthy western grazers'. A pump which could displace 350,000 gallons per hour was brought in, and a huge mechanical scoop. Allegedly, on one weekend, such was the newspaper frenzy that seven thousand holiday-goers from Melbourne arrived to shake their hands and wish them luck. One article by a journalist claims that he was told by a publican that the syndicate members were in his bar, 'celebrating' one night and passing a round object between themselves. Since it was run by an open-cut mining engineer, By 1955, the hole was being described in newspapers as a 'crater', sixty feet deep, with only an old 1880s Enfield rifle recovered. One story says that students of the nearby school are scared that gelignite blasting would shatter their windows, and debris was falling on students. Another story says the windows did shatter and the students were cut by flying glass. The syndicate apologised and promised no more blasting, but it was too late. The government swiftly stepped in and despite howls of protest, their licence was revoked, and the team banished from the site forever, along with all other excavations. Over time people would forget that the possible treasure even existed... I decided to visit with some friends and have a look, we went to the blasting site and later some cliff caves on the other side of the peninsula. Check this out!

Noonan Coal Mine Documentary "Hidden Treasure"
 
50:33
Somehow I got this DVD during Noonan's Centennial back in 2007. It is very informative about the old Noonan Coal Mines, their history and the WMA there now, etc. This is information that I believe, needs to be shared. It was an important part of the town where my mother was born and my grandparents lived. Grandpa Dhuyvetter worked in one of those underground mines when he first got here from Belgium. He emigrated from Belgium after World War I. Anyway, he earned enough money that way to buy some land and get married to my grandmother, Urbanie Snauwaert. They had one daughter, Bertha, my mother. Urbanie and her parent were also from Belgium. My great grandmother, Marie Snaewaert is buried in St Luk'e Cemetery here. My great grandfather, Gustav re-married and went back to Belgium My grandfather's brother, Morris also came here from Belgium and had "lots" of children, many of them and their offspring, still live in North Dakota. The farm is still in the family and is located four miles south of Noonan. I have come up to Noonan my whole life. I remember, as a kid, watching the coal strip mine operations. I even remember dumping the drag line on occasion. This area has a lot of fond memories for me. I moved here when I retired in 2001 and have never regretted it. I married Meredith back in 2002 and she moved up here with me. The bumper sticker on my car reads, "You are not lost, you are in Noonan, North Dakota. You are way beyond lost!" "Noonan isn't the end of the world here, but we do have a viewing area." I do a lot of photography up here, and title my work "Beauty on the Northern Plains," "North Dakota: Horizon to Horizon," and "North Dakota: Freezin' is the Season." I have two more art exhibitions coming up this year, celebrating the NEA (National Endowment of the Arts) and NDCA's (ND Council on the Arts) 50th Anniversary. I will be one of the 50 "Invited Artists" for those two events. I also one of the "Invited Artists" who exhibited at the North Dakota 150th Centennial back in 2014. If you are interested in more history of North Dakota that is a little more current, try the book "Sundogs and Sunflowers: Folklore and Folk Art on the Northern Great Plains." The sundog photograph on the cover is one of mine, plus others on the inside. I want to thank my son-in-law, Garrett for his efforts to make the DVD into a MP4 video I can share. This video probably has a pretty limited audience, though! I found no copyright statement on the video and believe it to be public domain.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Mining Machinery Engineering is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering that applies the principles of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and mining engineering for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mining equipment. It includes study of various aspects of equipment used in earthworks, mineral processing, bulk material handling, drilling and construction. Surface mining equipment evolved at a high pace in the 20th century as the scale of mining grew up. In the first twenty years of the 1900s, steam power was largely replaced by internal combustion engines and electric motors. Till the 1970s such equipment mainly used mechanical system and cables for power transmission after which they started to be replaced by hydraulic drive system for small machines. However, mechanical and cable drives are still dominant in large machines. Similar development took place in the development of underground machinery. Drilling and blasting replaced manual cutting of ores. Lately, use of continuous mining machines has become order of the day to comply with environmental regulations, protect surface features and also to achieve increased production rate. As the concern for safety in mines increased and highly stringent regulations were put in place, it required mining machinery engineers to be highly conversant with such regulations. Since Mining Machinery Engineering is a wholesome branch, the course of which covers disciplines like Mechanical Engineering, Mining Engineering, Mineral Engineering, Electrical Engineering, the employment opportunities are tremendous. Mining Machinery Engineering provides excellent career opportunities in various industries such as mining, heavy earth moving equipment, construction industry, mineral processing and other related industries. It is recognized by the Ministry of Labor, Government of India as equivalent to mechanical and electrical engineering for working in mines. The unique branch of Mining Machinery has a plethora of recruitment scope. Every single engineer of Mining Machinery Engineering has a vast on site experience of Machines deployed in both opencast as well as underground mines along with this, students are well versed with various bulk solid handling equipment like crushers, conveyors, feeders etc. The course of Mining Machinery Engineering also caters to construction equipment like Motor Graders, Dozers, Compactors etc. The amount of cost saved by the company hiring Mining Machinery Engineering graduates is quite high as every Mining Machinery Engineer has a multi-disciplinary approach towards solving problems owing to their vast area of expertise.

Here we point out the top ten biggest and strangest of them . In this video we will learn about Top 10 STRANGEST Holes on Earth . #1. Darvaza Gas Crater . In the heart of the Karakum desert of Turkmenistan the Darvaza Gas Crater or The Burning Gates give off a glow that can be seen from miles away during the dark night . The large crater is a result of a Soviet gas exploration accident in the 1950’s . #2. Kimberley Diamond Mine,South Africa . The Kimberley Diamond Mine (also known as the Big Hole) holds the (disputed) title of being the largest hand-dug hole in the world . From 1866 to 1914 50,000 miners dug the hole with picks and shovels, yielding 2,722 kg of diamonds . #3. Monticello Dam,California . Monticello Dam is a dam in Napa County, California, constructed between 1953 and 1957. The dam is a medium concrete-arch dam with a structural height of 304 ft (93 m) and a crest length of 1,023 ft (312 m) . It contains 326,000 cubic yards (249,000 m³) of concrete . #4. Bingham Canyon Mine,Utah . The Bingham Canyon Mine is a copper mine in the Oquirrh mountains, Utah .It is the world’s largest manmade excavation . The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit covering 1,900 acres (7.7 km²) . #5. Great Blue Hole,Belize . The Great Blue Hole is an underwater sinkhole off the coast of Belize. The hole is 1,000 feet across and 400 feet deep . It was formed as a limestone cave during the last iceage . #6. Mirny Diamond Mine,Siberia . The Mirny Diamond Mine is 525m deep and has a diameter of 1200m . It was the first, and one of the largest, diamond Pipes in the USSR . It is now abandoned .While it was still operational, it would take two hours for trucks to drive from the top to the bottom of the mine . #7. Diavik Mine,Canada . The Diavik Mine is a mine in the Northwest territories of Canada . The mine (opened in 2003) produces 8 million carats or about 1,600 kg (3,500 lb) of diamonds every year . The lifespan of the mine is expected to be 16 to 22 years . #8. Sinkhole,Guatemala . In February 2007 a large sinkhole opened in a poor neighborhood in northeast Guatemala city, killing three people . The sinkhole was 100.5 m (330 ft) deep, and apparently was created by fluid from a sewer dissolving the rock underneath . #9. Udachnaya Pipe,Russia . The Udachnaya Pipe is a diamond mine in Russia . The owners of the mine plan to cease its operations in 2010 – in favor of underground mining . The mine was discovered in 1955 and is over 600 meters deep . #10. Chuquicamata,Chile . Chuquicamata or “Chuqui” as it is more familiarly known, is an open pit copper mine in Chile .
