The life on a mining village in Western Australia

After working 9 months in different mining sites around Western Australia, I decided to make this little video after realizing that unless you've been there, it's really hard to imagine what is it to live on a mine site village. It's usually way better that what people imagine...

Australian mining matters because it's part of modern life. Gulkula Mining Company Pty Ltd - owned by the Gumatj - mines bauxite from the Dhupuma Plateau Bauxite Mine on the Gove Peninsula, 30km south of Nhulunbuy in the Northern Territory. The bauxite - used for aluminium production - is sold to Rio Tinto’s Gove operation where it is processed and shipped to customers.
Port Hedland Marina fight
 
11:23
DescriptionThis is about a David and Goliath battle. Our community is getting besieged by BHP Billiton Iron Ore and their fight to prevent Port Hedland getting the $152 million marina promised at the last election. They now have used their power to lobby the Premier of our State to back out of that election promise. This is all because Major Industry is not managing their own dust and noise impacts on this community and it is creating a potential HEALTH RISK that dust could have on this community. A brief reminder, Port Hedland was not built by a mining company. It existed well before Iron Ore Industry did. They have to manage their impacts on us, not the other way around.

BHP runaway iron ore train left a twisted wreck after derailment stopped it reaching WA town
 
04:37
Rail safety investigators have arrived at the site of a deliberate train derailment in Western Australia's Pilbara region, a day after a runaway train brought iron ore miner BHP's rail network to a halt.The fully-laden train, pulling 268 wagons of iron ore, was travelling from Newman to Port Hedland when the driver got out to inspect a wagon near Hester siding at 4:40am on Monday.While the driver was out of the cabin, the train took off, travelling more than 90 kilometres in 50 minutes.The train, made up of four locomotives, was eventually derailed at a set of points at Turner's Siding, about 120km south of Port Hedland.Mobile phone footage obtained by the ABC shows the twisted and mangled wreckage of the train lying strewn alongside the track.The derailment was orchestrated from BHP's Integrated Remote Operations Centre in Perth, about 1,500km away.Two rail safety officers from the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator have arrived at the site of the derailment to begin an investigation.The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is separately investigating the derailment.A spokesperson for the ATSB said the investigation was likely to be completed in the second quarter of 2019.WA Premier Mark McGowan said while he had not been briefed on the incident, it was clear "extraordinary measures" had been required."Obviously it would have been very concerning for everyone involved — BHP and the workforce, and the people of Port Hedland — that a train was travelling down the track without a driver and obviously out of control," Mr McGowan said.In a statement, BHP said about 1.5kilometres of track was damaged, and the recovery process would take about one week."We are working with the appropriate authorities to investigate the situation," the company said.In the meantime, train operations across BHP's network have been suspended.Based on the distance travelled, the runaway train reached an average speed of about 110 kilometres per hour.Rail Safety Consulting Australia owner Phillip Barker said it was unclear what had happened to make the train take off, but suggested it may have involved the configuration or isolation of the brake system."Usually, once the driver leaves the train, the brakes are on, there's procedures for that," Mr Barker said."They would have got permission to get off the locomotive and go and look at this wagon."There would have been a procedure in place to make sure the train didn't move off." Mr Barker said rail safety officers would begin by asking the driver and rail controllers what happened."Any traction power that may have been applied, what the brake pressures along the train — on the front and the back — may have been."It's an iterative approach and they'll start working from the bottom, at the accident [site], right up to the top."They'll be looking also at the safety systems .…to see if they're in place, if they're adequate and if they were followed."

Wittenoom, Western Australia
 
01:55
Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The area around Wittenoom was mainly pastoral until the 1930s when mining began in the area. By 1939, major mining had begun in Yampire Gorge, which was subsequently closed in 1943 when mining began in Wittenoom Gorge. In 1947 a company town was built, and by the 1950s it was Pilbara's largest town. During the 1950s and early 1960s Wittenoom was Australia's only supplier of blue asbestos. The town was shut down in 1966 due to unprofitability and growing health concerns from asbestos mining in the area. - Source: Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wittenoom,_Western_Australia

Originally made for the executives of the mines, now a must play course for any golfing nutter or fanatic. Come check it out Newman information & tourist attractions are brought to you by World Holiday Destination. Book your Newman Accommodation Newman is a town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It is located about 1,186 kilometres (737 mi) north of Perth, and 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) north of the Tropic of Capricorn. It can be reached by the Great Northern Highway. In the 2006 Australian census, its population was 4,245. Newman is a modern mining town, with suburban-style homes contrasting with the surrounding reddish desert. The Hickman Crater is 35 kilometres (22 mi) north of Newman. Commercial area ============ Typical of company towns, Newman is laid out with a core, where shopping and hotels are located, surrounded by residential areas, with more industrial activities on the outskirts. There is one shopping mall in the town, two shopping plazas, three hotels, and three bars/restaurants outside of those contained in the hotels. One public outdoor pool serves the town's population. Transport ============ A privately owned railway, the Mount Newman railway, was constructed linking it to Port Hedland which itself was upgraded to handle shipment of the ore to the world market. On 21 June 2001 a train 7.353 km (4.569 mi) long, comprising 682 ore cars and eight locomotives made the Newman—Port Hedland trip and is listed as the world's longest ever train. The ore trains are typically over 2 km long. Newman is also a service town to the nearby mining settlements like Tom Price and Paraburdoo. The town is served by Newman Airport. Architecture ========== Being founded in the 1960s, Newman's architecture reflects the modernist styles of that decade and the next, being predominantly functional and devoid of detail or embellishment. As the town was founded and built by a steel company, the majority of buildings use a steel frame construction. This applies to the suburban style homes themselves, most of them being two prefabricated halves inserted together into a steel I-section frame, the columns of which are left exposed on the exterior of the home. This construction method serves not only to showcase the company's product, but also gives strong resistance to cyclone winds which can affect the region from time to time. For this same reason, most houses are elevated from the ground by a few steps. Many houses also have large air-conditioning units situated next to them to provide adequate cooling against the very hot summer temperatures. Climate ========== Newman has an arid climate, with very hot summers and mild winters. The temperature reaches or exceeds over 38°C almost every day in the summer. On 15 January 1998, the temperature reached an all-time recorded high of 47.0°C. Precipitation is sparse, but the influx of monsoonal moisture in the summer, which generally begins in December and lasts until April, raises humidity levels and can cause occasional heavy storms. Winter months are mild to warm, with daily high temperatures ranging from the 20°C to 26°C (18-22°C), and low (nighttime) temperatures rarely dipping below 6°C.

Port Hedland Local Employment and local disadvantage

This movie highlights the disadvantage faced by some in a town that is seeing Billions of dollars generated for companies and the government. Something needs to be done here by the entities that can make a difference - BHP and others need to stop stuffing around and make a real difference rather than fluffing around the edges. There is an apparent disregard of the benefit that local businesses deliver to these types of communities. The local companies are treated with contempt by the government and the likes of BHP - made to invest heavily to service work then thrown to the kerb at the drop of a hat.

Cyclone Christine in Australia Heading Inland After Hitting Iron Ore Ports

Cyclone Christine heads inland in Australia after battering iron ore ports. Full Story: Australia's Pilbara region, the world's largest iron ore mining and shipping area, faced cyclonic winds and torrential rains on Monday and Tuesday after a cyclone from the Indian Ocean made landfall. The key shipping ports of Dampier, Cape Lambert and Port Hedland bore the brunt of the storm, after clearing dozens of iron ore freighters and evacuating staff over the weekend. The small town of Karratha, south on the Pilbara coastline, was also hit by strong winds. Cyclone Christine is the second to batter Western Australia in the November to April cyclone season. Mining companies Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton and Fortescue Metals are forced to suspend loading until emergency authorities sound the all-clear, expected over the next day or two. Winds with gusts exceeding 100 miles-per-hour are possible near the center of the cyclone, says the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. A red alert—meaning residents must seek shelter—has been issued for the mining hubs of Tom Price and Paraburdoo. Exports from Port Hedland, the world's largest iron ore export terminal and used by BHP and Fortescue, reached over 28 million tons in November alone. The majority of the ore is shipped under contract to steel mills in China.

Pilbara Iron Ore Infrastructure - Phase A and B
 
10:02
Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) awarded McConnell Dowell the design and construction of the Pilbara Iron Ore Infrastructure Project at Port Hedland in Western Australia. FMG is positioning itself as the third major iron ore producer in Australia. MacDow's scope of work included a load-out berth, a lay-by berth and navigation aids. The load-out berth comprises a 100 m long approach jetty complete with roadway and elevated conveyor trusses; a transfer station platform with wharf conveyor, drive and belt change-out areas; and a wharf structure to supports the shiploader. The wharf includes shiploader rails; six independent berthing dolphins including fenders and quick release mooring hooks and controls; and trafficable concrete deck required for maintenance and associated traffic. The lay-by berth comprises eight independent berthing and mooring dolphins with interconnecting catwalks. Included on the berth were remotely controlled quick release mooring hooks and capstans on all dolphins. A total of five new navigation aids were designed and installed within the confines of the Port Hedland Port Authority (PHPA) inner harbour. Piling of the 341 piles were carried out by two piling barges with 350 tonne cranes, and a construction barge with a 180 tonne crane. Each of these barges was in turn supplied by four material/supply barges. Piles were driven using a piling frame system specifically designed by the company and predominantly constructed by MacDow's fabrication yard in Batam, Indonesia. The piling works included installation of 341 no. 1,016 diameter piles totalling 6,230 tonnes with wall thickness of 20, 22 and 35 mm. The piles ranged in size from 38 m to 55 m long. A modular approach was used to construct the deck structures. Steel modules form the main structural elements and incorporate pre-cast concrete planks, conveyor galleries and associated equipment. The modules were laser aligned off site to ensure on site alignment required only minor adjustment. The modular approach minimised on-site work, reduced the overall programme duration, and ensured achievement of our first milestone date for the arrival of the client's shiploader. Overall the project was completed on time and on budget, and MacDow's performance was recognised by its peers with the awarding of the WA Civil Contractor's Federation 2008 Construction Excellence Award. Based on the performance on this project, MacDow was awarded the first phase of the expansion of the facility. This includes the addition of a new approach jetty; a new transfer tower; new main loadout berth; new lay-by berth; new berthing dolphins and associated works. With the current growth and expansions planned for the Pilbara area over the next few years, McConnell Dowell is at the forefront of the design and construction of new civil marine projects to service the resources boom.

Aftermath of a derailment of a 268 carriage iron ore train in the Australian outback
 
01:13
The train, full with iron ore, was deliberately derailed by BHP after it travelled for more than 90 kilometres without a driver in WA's Pilbara. The train, made up of 4 locomoties and 268 wagons, was travelling from Newman to Port Hedland at 4:40am on Monday 5/11/18, when the driver hopped out to inspect a wagon near Turner siding. But the train took off from the siding before the driver could get back on board. This video was not filmed by me it was forwarded to me, and was being sent around.

It can be reached by the Great Northern Highway. With a population at the 2006 census of 5,139.[1], it is a modern mining town with leafy suburban-style homes providing a stark contrast to the surrounding reddish arid desert area. Originally marginal cattle country, Newman was built in the 1960s with the discovery of rich iron deposits on nearby Mt Whaleback. The discovery marked the start of the resource boom in the WA in the 1970s. A privately owned railway was constructed linking it to Port Hedland which itself was upgraded to handle shipment of the ore to the world market. On June 21, 2001 a train 7.353 km (4.568 miles) long, comprising 682 ore cars and 8 locomotives made the Newman--Port Hedland trip and is listed as the worlds longest train ever [1]. The ore trains are typically over 2 km long. Newman is also a service town to the nearby mining settlements like Tom Price and Paraburdoo. Typical of company towns, Newman is laid out with a core, where shopping and hotels are located, surrounded by residential areas, with more industrial activities on the outskirts. There is one shopping mall in the town, two shopping plazas, three hotels, and three bars/restaurants outside of those contained in the hotels. One public outdoor pool serves the town's population.

Venturex Resources Ltd (ASX:VXR) Refocused On The Pilbara
 
08:00
Copper-zinc explorer Venturex Resources (ASX:VXR) is positioning itself for a busy 2015 with exploration to focus on its advanced portfolio of projects in the mineral-rich Pilbara region of Western Australia. "We are one of the few companies on the ASX that provides investors with exposure to copper and zinc. Therefore it is a good blend for those looking for exposure to those markets," Venturex Resources Managing Director Michael Mulroney told PPRTV. "We think, through Venturex, investors get a good exposure to what we think will be rising copper and zinc prices in the coming years." The recent exit from its gold exploration tenements in Brazil has enabled Venturex to refocus its effort solely on its Pilbara suite of projects. "Obviously [withdrawing from Brazil] focuses us from a technical and financial capability point of view," he added. With a total 29Mt resource base across its Pilbara projects, Mulroney said this was a solid platform to build off as well as strong copper and zinc exploration upside from across Venturex's ground. According to Mulroney, Sulphur Springs and Whim Creek are the two regional projects that have been driving exploration in the second half of 2014, and expected to continue into first quarter 2015. "At Sulphur Springs, we will be focused on Kangaroo Caves. We have a resource there that is still open in several directions and a development path that with the next door Sulphur Springs project, makes it very attractive to have another resource on our doorstep." At the Whim Creek project, Venturex has been utilising new exploration technologies which have discovered a number of different targets around the Bella Bella and Salt Creek areas. Drilling access permits have been applied for and Mulroney anticipates these to be granted in early 2015, with drilling to begin shortly after. Discussions for the development of the Pilbara Copper-Zinc-Silver project are still being progressed, with a number of parties expressing interest. "Logistics-wise we are very well placed in the Pilbara to get our product to overseas markets," Mulroney said. "We are going to utilise the new container borne technologies to get our product from the mine site itself at Sulphur Springs to the port at Port Hedland." Mulroney said that despite the current challenging climate for mining investment, he hopes to be able to provide a more detailed update to shareholders on the process at the start of next year, and where the development opportunities exist.

Wittenoom, Western Australia
 
00:59
Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It is the site of Australia's greatest industrial disaster. The area around Wittenoom was mainly pastoral until the 1930s when mining began in the area. By 1939, major mining had begun in Yampire Gorge, which was subsequently closed in 1943 when mining began in Wittenoom Gorge. In 1947 a company town was built, and by the 1950s it was the Pilbara's largest town. During the 1950s and early 1960s Wittenoom was Australia's only supplier of blue asbestos. The town was shut down in 1966 due to unprofitability and growing health concerns from asbestos mining in the area. Today, eight residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas.
