The New Mines and Minerals Act - Liberalising the loot of India's natural resources?
Given the huge losses to the exchequer following the 2G and Coal Gate scams, and the Supreme Court decisions mandating auction for allocation of scarce natural resources, there was a need for the government to put in place a transparent system to deal with extractive industries. The Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Amendment Act, 2015 attempts to put in place a system of auctions to deal with allocation of mineral resources and also deals with the compensatory and regulatory structure for the carrying out of extractive industries. However, some have argued that the Act actually legitimizes prospective scams by excluding large quantities of minerals from the purview of the auction and transparency provisions. Many have pointed to the dilution of environmental norms as well as reduced compensations payable to displaced persons under the Act and have therefore questioned the intentions of the Modi Government when passing this legislation. Newsclick speaks to D.Raghunandan, President, All India People's Science Network to discuss the recently passed MMDRA Act and whether the legislation actually favours the corporate sector at the cost of the citizenry of this country.

CBSE Class 10 | Geography | Non Metallic Minerals |
In this module, you will learn about Non Metallic Minerals, Mica is a non-metallic mineral composed of thin leaves or sheets joined together. Mica is found in many colours, from transparent to black, green, tallow, brown and red. Mica provides excellent electrical insulation with low power loss even at very high voltages. Mica is used extensively in the electrical and electronics industries. The main mica producing regions in India are the northern Chhota Nagpur Plateau in Jharkhand, Ajmer in Rajasthan and Nellore in Andhra Pradesh. The Koderma, Gaya and Hazaribagh belt in Jharkhand is the largest producer of mica in India. Limestone is a form of sedimentary rock composed almost entirely of calcium carbonate. Limestone is mainly used in smelting iron ore and manufacturing of cement. Andhra Pradesh is the main limestone-producing state in India, followed by Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and others. Workers engaged in mining face serious risks to their health and life. Indiscriminate mining leads to extensive deforestation. Dumping of mining waste results in soil and land degradation, and the pollution of air and fresh water bodies. We need stricter laws and the implementation of personal and environmental safety regulations to keep mining a safe activity. Usable minerals are only about 1 percent of the earth’s crust. Minerals are limited and non-renewable resources. Continuous mining starts yielding poor quality ores at much higher cost. We need to conserve our mineral resources. Recycling and reusing material and finding suitable substitutes of minerals can help us conserve our mineral resources.

National Security, Rare Earth Elements & The Thorium Problem
"The only operating rare earth mine in the United States sends all of their valuable resources to China for processing. Congress does not know this. They think this [mining] company is supplying the U.S. value chain, [and] is supplying the military. It is in-fact, the opposite. They are part of the Chinese monopoly. They're shipping rare earth concentrates and oxides to China, and it comes back as a magnet, or an alloy, or a bolt-on component." - Jim Kennedy Latest News: https://foreignpolicy.com/2019/05/21/china-raises-threat-of-rare-earth-mineral-cutoff-to-us/ The White House must take direct action under the authority of the Defense Protection Act and establish a domestic and fully integrated rare earth cooperative. Why can't Molycorp, Lynas or any other 'western' rare earth company succeed? China's production and market advantage in Rare Earth Elements (REE) is largely the result of NRC and IAEA "Source Material" regulations with unintended consequences. Source Material: Materials containing any ratio or combination of Thorium and Uranium above .05%. Producing or holding these materials within the regulatory threshold (.05%) requires extensive and wide-ranging licensing, storage, transportation, remediation disposal and compliance costs, including prohibitive liability and bonding issues. Consequently any potential supplier of byproduct / co-product rare earth resources that would be designated as "source material' disposes of these valuable resources to avoid liability and compliance issues. NRC / IAEA regulations regarding "Source Material" played a key roll in undermining the economic viability of all 'western' rare earth producers and are a critical factor in China's current 'market advantage'. Producers like Molycorp and Lynas, with low Thorium deposits, can never compete with China. Resources are abundant and available: U.S mining companies currently mine as much as 50% of global Rare Earth Elements demand every year. But these resources are diverted in tailings lakes or are redistributed back into the host ore body, due to NRC and IAEA regulations defining Monazite and other Thorium bearing rare earth resources as "Source Material". To solve "The Thorium Problem" requires a federally chartered multinational Thorium Energy and Industrial Products Corporation ("Thorium Bank"). Privately funded and operated, this would decouple thorium from rare earth production. The Thorium Corporation would also have Congressional Authority to develop Thorium energy systems and industrial products. Environmental regulations are not scaled back... rather this enables thorium to be stored safely & securely, rather then being treated as "waste". This also addresses the U.S. Weapons Systems current 100% Dependency on China for Rare Earths. http://thoriumenergyalliance.com/downloads/TEAC6/USWeaponsChinese.pdf Federal Legislation governing Strategic Materials, 10 USC 2533b, does not specify rare earths, but includes metal alloys containing limited amounts of manganese, silicon, copper, or aluminum, chromium, cobalt, columbium, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, nickel and iron-nickel, cobalt, Titanium and Zirconium alloys. Federal Regulations require that these materials be melted in the U.S. Most of these materials are utilized in rare earth alloys, magnets and components in the defense industry. We do NOT need to reclassify thorium. We do NOT need to weaken current environmental protection. Resolve "The Thorium Problem" which cripples United States domestic rare earth mining, processing and value-adding processes.

Regulating Sand and Gravel Mining: Lessons From Michigan CM LAW
2012-02-29 Presenters: Mark Wyckoff, Richard K. Norton and Trudy Galla As with many mineral resources, planning for extraction and regulating sand and gravel mining is a difficult challenge. The private property rights of those with sand and gravel resources are pitted against those of neighbors, who may have to bear the negative impacts while receiving none of the financial benefits. There are a number broader community issues at stake as well including: ensuring provision of sand and gravel for building and road projects; concerns over exclusionary zoning; and regulating development according to a comprehensive plan. This session is a case study about Kasson Township in Leelanau County, Michigan. Kasson Township sits on a huge sand and gravel reserve. The case study traces: controversy from reactive zoning battles twenty years ago over regulation of extraction activities, through voter referenda and lawsuits, to; a proactive approach involving a mineral inventory and planning for mineral extraction, by means of a new gravel mining zoning district; followed by legal challenges all the way to the Michigan Supreme Court where invalidation of an earlier court-made rule favoring mineral extraction occurred; and then less than one year later to state legislative action to restore the mineral extraction-favoring rule by state law; and now back to local conflict over regulating extraction. The webinar explains a number of legal principles in the context of sand and gravel mining. It demonstrates both the importance of zoning based on sound planning and how widespread failure to reign in sprawl can undermine a community's ability to provide for extraction of mineral resources where they are located.

Impacts of Mining
beneath the surface COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS FOR THE GLOBAL MINING THREAT Project Vision: Preventing Human Rights Abuses Related to Mining The objective of this multi-­‐year project is to build a multimedia toolkit that educates, empowers, and connects communities impacted by extractive industries. The toolkit aims to stop human rights abuses before they occur and to put communities in a strong position to protect their rights and fight for justice. The project uses videos to share stories and practical advice from communities already impacted by mining with communities where mining will soon occur. These stories will form the foundation of a video toolkit that provides communities with strategies and techniques for protecting their rights, and inspires them to action. Cutting Edge Tools for Community Organizations All videos will be published with a facilitator’s guide to help maximize the impact of video screenings and support communities in taking meaningful action. Videos will be distributed on DVDs, USBs, and online, along with links to relevant guides and further information on key topics and strategies covered in the videos. Key partners will also be provided with projection equipment and hands-­‐on training to launch their grassroots distribution program. Video Collection: Year 1 ● The Impacts of Mining (Peru, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe) ● Baseline Data and Environmental Monitoring (Nigeria) ● Community Mapping and Resistance to Mining (Ghana) ● Building a Resistance Movement (Peru, forthcoming) ● Negotiating for Environmental Protections (Bolivia, forthcoming) ● Resettlement and Relocation (Zimbabwe, forthcoming) Iteration & Year 2 The second phase of our project emphasizes distribution, feedback, and iteration.

Follow-up of Report 15: 2013–14 Environmental regulation of the resources and waste industries
Queensland’s resources industry adds significant economic and social value to the state through royalties, investment, employment, and community development. However, resource activities can cause environmental harm that may be irreversible or take years to rectify. In Queensland, the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection regulates most resources and waste operators, and manages financial assurance for their activities. Similarly, the Department of Natural Resources and Mines issues permits for mining, petroleum and gas activities, provides geoscientific and resource information, and manages financial assurance for mining activities (excluding petroleum and gas activities). In Report 15: 2013–14 Environmental regulation of the resources and waste industries we made nine recommendations, all of which the two departments accepted. In this follow-up audit, we looked at the status of these recommendations and whether the departments’ changes addressed the issues we originally raised.

The Global Supply of Critical Materials: Critical Raw Materials - The EU Approach
No country in the world produces all of the mineral resources necessary for modern society. International trade plays a critical role in providing these raw materials, forming a global network of production, export, import, and use. This network must continuously adapt to national and international developments in science, technology, politics, and economics. As a result, information on the global flow of raw materials plays a fundamental role in improving national and international resilience to potential supply disruptions and market changes. This is the second presentation from the AGI Critical Issues webinar, "Tracking the Global Supply of Critical Materials". This webinar focuses on U.S. and European Union (EU) efforts to gather information and develop tools that can be used to ensure a secure national and global supply of mineral resources; identify and quantify vulnerabilities in this supply; and stimulate national and international co-operation, education and outreach, and innovation in the development, recycling, and substitution of key mineral resources. Our speakers include: Nedal Nassar, Chief, Materials Flow Analysis Section, National Minerals Information Center, U.S. Geological Survey Vitor Correia, President, European Federation of Geologists, and co-ordinator of the EU’s INTRAW project This webinar is co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union, American Institute of Professional Geologists, Australian Institute of Geoscientists, European Federation of Geologists, Geological Society of Africa, Geological Society of London, Geoscience Information Society, Mineralogical Society of America, and Society of Economic Geologists, with media partnership from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Rep. Kevin Cramer Responds To New Federal Fracking Rule
North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer responds to a draft federal regulation targeting hydraulic fracturing. "As North Dakota's own Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms accurately pointed out last week in the House Natural Resources Committee, it is simply not possible for the federal government to create its own standard on hydraulic fracturing without interfering with state and local laws. The implementation of this rule would threaten the nature of our thriving energy economy and have punishing consequences on everyone from rig workers to restaurant owners to new college graduates throughout North Dakota. As North Dakota strives to lead the way toward national energy security, I struggle to think of a more harmful regulation for our federal government to pursue."

State Dept, analyst on discovery of minerals in Afghanistan
(14 Jun 2010) SHOTLIST DEPARTMENT OF STATE TELEVISION 1. US State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley walks to podium 2. SOUNDBITE (English) P.J. Crowley, US State Department Spokesman: "It is a potentially important development. We're not underestimating the challenges involved here, you know, but, obviously, if these things can be developed over time, that offers the ability for Afghanistan to have the resources necessary to develop a modern economy, a legal economy, as opposed to the economy they currently have now, which is heavily dependent on narcotics." AP TELEVISION 3. Wide of Stephanie Sanok, international security expert at Center for Strategic and International Studies, during interview 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephanie Sanok, International Security Expert, Center for Strategic and International Studies: "What amazes me most about this story is that its been 25 years in the making. In the mid 80s, the Soviets knew that there were vast mineral resources in Afghanistan but they didn't do anything about it. And in the Taliban rule, nothing could be done about it. The U.S. Geological Survey has come across and said there are perhaps up to one (t) trillion dollars worth of mineral resources: copper, iron, rare earth elements like lithium. What it means in terms of U.S. policy is that I believe the Obama administration will now target more resources at developing the infrastructure necessary to extract those minerals." 5. Wide of Sanok 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephanie Sanok, International Security Expert, Center for Strategic and International Studies: "There is a real danger in discovering minerals in countries like Afghanistan. It's a double-edged sword. The positive side is obviously employment, economic opportunity for the Afghans, themselves, if they have the regulations and laws in place so that Afghanistan can benefit. The other side, though, is that it will make the Taliban cling more tightly to the areas that they do control. If they can't access these minerals, that's fine. They also don't want anyone else to benefit from gaining access to these minerals." 7. Wide of Sanok 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephanie Sanok, International Security Expert, Center for Strategic and International Studies: "If the Afghans can access these resources it could very well be a game changer for them. You're looking a country with a 12 (b) billion dollar gross domestic product. It's not a rich country, it is war torn. There are basic security concerns and essential services that the Afghan people aren't getting. So in terms of giving more wealth to this impoverished nation it's a great opportunity." 9. Wide of Sanok STORYLINE It could take years and possibly even a peace settlement for Afghanistan to reap profits from nearly one (t) trillion US dollars in mineral resources that US geologists say lie beneath its rugged terrain - some in areas currently controlled by Taliban insurgents or warlords. Geologists have known for decades that Afghanistan has vast mineral wealth, but a US Department of Defence briefing this week put a startling price tag on the country's reserves of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and other prized minerals: at least 908 (b) billion US dollars. If impoverished Afghanistan is seen as having a bright economic future, that could help foreign governments persuade their war-fatigued publics that securing the country is worth the fight and loss of troops. It also could give Afghans hope, US officials say. Still, without increased security and massive investment to mine and transport the minerals, it could take years for Afghanistan to bank the rewards. And there's always the potential that such a discovery could bring unintended consequences, including corruption and civil war. Afghanistan.

A related but distinct set of regulatory regimes, now strongly influenced by environmental legal principles, focus on the management of specific natural resources, such as forests, minerals, or fisheries. Other areas, such as environmental impact assessment, may not fit neatly into either category, but are nonetheless important components of environmental law.

Mining industry of Nigeria
The mining of minerals in Nigeria accounts for only 0.3% of its GDP, due to the influence of its vast oil resources. The domestic mining industry is underdeveloped, leading to Nigeria having to import minerals that it could produce domestically, such as salt or iron ore. Rights to ownership of mineral resources is held by the Nigerian government, which grants titles to organizations to explore, mine, and sell mineral resources. Organized mining began in 1903 when the Mineral Survey of the Northern Protectorates was created by the British colonial government. A year later, the Mineral Survey of the Southern Protectorates was founded. By the 1940s, Nigeria was a major producer of tin, columbite, and coal. The discovery of oil in 1956 hurt the mineral extraction industries, as government and industry both began to focus on this new resource. The Nigerian Civil War in the late 1960s led many expatriate mining experts to leave the country. This video is targeted to blind users.
