Protests in Peru Turn Violent

At least five people were killed and many others injured during violent protests against mining activities in northern Peru during July. Environmental activist Marco Arana, a priest and one of three leaders of the movement, was briefly detained by authorities. Peruvian President Ollanta Humala called for a State of Emergency, which has now been extended.

Three civilians died from gunshot wounds July 3, 2012, in the city of Celendín during a confrontation between protesters and police and army units outside the city hall. More than 30 other civilians were injured, several of them reportedly with bullet wounds, according to local media reports.

For several months, Peruvians have been protesting against Minera Yanacocha’s Conga project. Local media reported the violence July 3 began when a group of construction workers were protesting non-payment of wages for a school......... read more

Las Vegas hosts the world's largest exposition for mining and mineral processing

By Steve Fiscor, Editor-in-Chief and Gina Tverdak-Slattery, Associate Editor

Every four years, the U.S. National Mining Association (NMA) holds MINExpo INTERNATIONAL, the world’s largest exposition for the mining and mineral processing sectors. The event will take place September 24-26, 2012, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. As far as exhibit space, the show is currently sold out.

The Drivers of Autonomy
Both underground and on surface, autonomous mining machines are becoming increasingly attractive

By Simon Walker, European Editor

As with many other areas of technology, the increase in sophistication in mining machinery can be measured as a timeline. From manual to mechanization, then to automation and now, increasingly, various levels of autonomy whereby the individual machine (or fleet of machines) does not need direct, handson human supervision to perform highly complex routines.The incentives for increasing levels of autonomy are varied, depending on the mine type and geographical location, but essentially boil down to two main drivers: removing people from potential hazards, and overcoming shortages of skilled personnel. In general terms, the safety aspect is more significant in underground operations, while attracting trained operators to work long shifts is a major headache for companies who have surface mines in remote locations—as in Western Australia’s iron-ore industry..... read more

The Growing Popularity of Sustainable Mine Reclamation
Companies may reap potential rewards by considering the Triple Bottom Line business model, which bolsters sustainability through financial prosperity, environmental stewardship and social responsibility

By Wendy Schlett

The concept of sustainability continues to gain traction in every industry, including mining. Even though mining typically brings up ideas that conflict with the tenets of sustainability, specifically extracting non-renewable resources from the earth, it is becoming more and more possible to reconcile the two. Sustainable mine reclamation ensures that the surface of the earth is not left to rejuvenate itself, thereby mitigating potentially contaminated and unusable land that previously lay fallow for ages by past mining reclamation practices. Now, new uses for mined land are being considered before mining even commences, and more opportunities and emphases are being placed on thinking about these future uses with sustainability in mind…... read more

China Ship Congestion
How So Many Capesize Ships Got Locked Out of China's Ports

By David Gambel

There was a great deal of excitement the first week in June when it was reported that more than 30 Panamax and Capesize ships were floating off the coast of China with unsold cargoes. For the coal and ore brokers and others that had not been paid, it was panic time. There would be sleepless nights and lunchless days as they tried to sell their cargoes to the Chinese, Koreans, Indians, Italians, or anyone else that would take them. It is unclear whether this was a case of southeastern Chinese utilities arbitraging imports with domestic production from northern China, if it was a symptom of the continuing battle between Chinese shipowners and Vale, or some of each. Coal was important, but iron ore shipping was wagging the dog..... read more

FELUWA Pumps - Excellence in Pumps for the Mining Industry
At the heart of unique MULTISAFE pumps are two hose-diaphragms which are arranged one inside the other. They fully enclose the linear flow path of the fluid and create double hermetic sealing from the hydraulic drive end. Both hose-diaphragms are actuated by hydraulic fluid and subject to pulsating action, comparable with that of a human vein.
In metallurgical plants, FELUWA MULTISAFE pumps are successfully applied for autoclave feeding, sulfuric acid, thickener underflow, choke water, seal water make-up, slurry pipelines, tailings disposal or mine dewatering, for example.
Visit us in the South Hall and see MULTISAFE   pumps in operation.

Large Vibrating Screen Handles High Production Demands
W.S. Tyler says its XL-Class vibrating screen combines advanced drive technology with a wide body to offer better screening action and more throughput. Larger than any other vibrating screen from W.S. Tyler, the XL-Class is intended for high tonnage production rates, and features exciter drive technology that ensures smooth operation and high uptime. The linear stroke is generated by counterweights mounted on two machined shafts that spin in opposite directions via two heavy-duty spur gears attached to an iron casting that mounts to the exciter bridge. The bridge is the main exciter support and transmits dynamic force through the entire structure. In addition to better operation, the exciter design increases bearing life up to 50,000 hours, according to the company .…. read more
