Canadian Mining Industry
Aired on June 20, 2007 As commodity prices boom around the world, Canada's mining industry is booming, too. But it's also under increasing scrutiny. Pressure from NGO's who monitor Canadian companies abroad, led to a national round-table on corporate social responsibility and the extractive industry. Its produced a stellar and unanimous report N-G-Os and industry came to a consensus. We wanted to talk to someone from Foreign Affairs about these new guidelines, unfortunately, they declined saying they're still studying the proposals. It seems there may not be consensus in the Canadian government. But for the bigger picture of the Canadian mining industry worldwide, Avi talks to Karyn Keenan with the Halifax Initiative, an international development NGO based in Ottawa. THE FACTS ON MINING IN CANADA: Sixty percent of the world's exploration companies are listed on Canada's Stock Exchanges. Eighty-five percent of all the mining deals done world wide are done in Canada. Canadian companies account for over 40% of global exploration budgets. And they have Interests in more than 3,000 mineral properties in more than 100 countries. It all means that Canada is a big player. LINKS: http://www.halifaxinitiative.org/

Canadian Mining Street Theatre Skit - Dundas Square, Toronto, ON, Canada
For the first time, students from across Canada united in Toronto and held a national event to launch the annual Catholic Students' Week. Called the "Proclaim Integrity with Justice Weekend ," 25 representatives from 10 universities gathered at Romero House Jan. 31 to Feb 2. Romero House is a welcome centre for refugees and was deemed a fitting place to kick off the week. "This is an excellent place to begin Catholic Students' Week because it is a place where Catholics have recognized that there's a desperate need for a warm welcome and justice for refugees," said Lori Neale, national coordinator for the Canadian Catholic Campus Ministry and Canadian Catholic Students' Association. The CCCM and CCSA held the event in conjunction with Romero House, the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace, Jesuit Volunteers Canada, Scarboro Missions, Intercordia Canada and the Society of Jesus. The weekend 's activities included street theatre and a presentation by Development & Peace on the mining practices of Canadian companies and what students can do on campus to aid Development & Peace in solidarity with the Global South. Catholic Students' Week is meant to unite students who witness to the Gospel on campus, said Neale. According to CCSA president Daniela Dabrowski, "The hope is to raise awareness that we are Catholic and we are really proud of our identity as Catholics." Catholic students at almost 42 post-secondary institutions planned to celebrate Catholic Students' Week with over 300 events, according to a press release. "I'm excited that Catholic Students' Week is growing," said Neale. This year three new camp uses are involved in the celebrations: University of Calgary, Université de Moncton and Acadia University. "This shows that the activity of the Catholic students on campus is growing and (so is) the connection to a national movement," said Neale. Some notable events scheduled for the week included a talk by Cardinal Thomas Collins on Dante's Divine Comedy at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, a discussion with Archbishop Richard Gagnon at St. Paul's College at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, and a public lecture on Pope Francis and a 30-hour fast for social justice at Corpus Christian College and St. Mark's Parish at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Events also included ecumenical and interfaith gatherings. There are about 16 Catholic Students' Week events at UBC because there are many groups that have evolved out of this vibrant Catholic culture that is already present on campus, said Michael Goco, UBC Newman Club president. "There's opportunity for evangelization... Each person will respond differently to a type of activity. Some will be more inclined to respond to intellectual events, some to more social gatherings, some to more spiritual opportunities such as prayer." Other partners and collaborators of Catholic Students' Week include Catholic Campus Outreach, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, vocations offices and many local religious congregations. The week is celebrated with the support of the Canadian Catholic Conference of Bishops.

Uranium Mining in US and Canada in the 1970s
Physically removing the rock ore generally involves either open-pit mining or underground mining. Milling is the process that removes uranium from the ore, which is mostly obtained in open-pit and underground mines. Once at the mill, the ore is crushed and ground up, and treated with chemical solutions to dissolve the uranium, which is then recovered from the solution. Tailings are the wastes from the millings processes and are stored in mill tailings impoundments, a specially designed waste disposal facility. Since 1979, when uranium mine workers began being diagnosed with lung diseases, such as cancer, regulators have gradually tightened controls and mandated improved uranium mining practices. Recently, officials also have become concerned with the broader impacts of uranium mining on public health and the environment. Workers are directly exposed to the radiation hazards of uranium mines. Uranium mining also releases radon from the ground into the atmosphere. Mines and mining waste can release radionuclides, including radon, and other pollutants to streams, springs, and other bodies of water. Federal and state agencies have established pollutant discharge limits and drinking water standards, and continue to monitor these sites for public safety. Uranium mine waste from operations that closed before the mid-1970s are of particular concern. In many cases, these mines remain unclaimed and the waste is still piled near the mine. Weathering can lead to radioactive dust that is blown by the wind and the seepage of contaminants into the surface and groundwater. There are also cases of unclaimed uranium mine waste being used for house construction, which creates significant radon and radiation hazard for inhabitants. For more information on the hazards of uranium, go to USEPA website http://www.epa.gov/radtown/basic.html . This is clipped from the late 1970's BBC Production, Energy From The Crust, showing uranium mining activities and equipment and including footage from the following uranium mines: Schwartzwalder Mine, Near Boulder, Colorado King Solomon Mine near Uravan, Colorado and the Key Lake Mine in Saskatchewan, Canada. The entire film is available at the Internet Archive.

What is a 43-101? Mining 101: Ep 1.
President and CEO of Mercer Gold Corp Rahim Jivraj explains what a 43-101 is. From Wikipedia: National Instrument 43-101 (the "NI 43-101" or the "NI") is a mineral resource classification scheme used for the public disclosure of information relating to mineral properties in Canada. The NI is a strict guideline for how public companies can disclose scientific and technical information about mineral projects on bourses supervised by the Canadian Securities Administrators. Plainly put, the purpose of the National Instrument 43-101 is to ensure that misleading, erroneous or fraudulent information relating to mineral properties is not published and promoted to investors on the stock exchanges overseen by the Canadian Securities Authority.

CCAfricaNews: The Reality of Canadian mining in Africa
It seems that every time you read or hear about Canadian mining in Africa, it's negative toward the industry. But Canadian mining operations in Africa are providing jobs to local people and taxes, dividends and royalties to local governments. It seems that every time you read or hear about Canadian mining in Africa, it prompts negative feelings in you, or you develop a negative opinion toward the industry. Why? Simply because everything you read is quite negative, you are dealing half-truths, an incomplete picture of the situation, misleading opinion and, most of all, the results of shabby research.

Extracting Truths
This song is a collaborative piece by artists from across the Americas. It was created in the spirit of solidarity with the intent of calling attention to the abusive practices of Canadian mining companies. The idea for the project was conceived in Juanita Sundberg's Geography 495 class at U.B.C. The class is an innovative seminar that explores the politics of North-South solidarity in theory and practice, using Community Service Learning models that join thought with action. This year GEOG 495 is working in collaboration with the Vancouver-based Mining Justice Alliance to transform the classroom into a space of international engagement, reflection and action. Our central focus is solidarity with communities in Latin America affected by Canadian-owned mining companies. Vancouver: A Global Hub of Mining Injustice- On their websites and in press releases, extractive corporations claim to bring positive economic and social "development" for local communities. But—all over the world— local communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academics and even politicians have raised serious, credible, and widespread allegations linking Canadian and Vancouver-based extractive corporations to environmental devastation, human rights abuses, and denial of indigenous rights. Courageous members of affected communities are speaking out, but resistance to mining projects is often met with intimidation and violent repression. This booklet outlines how Vancouver-based mining projects in Guatemala, El Salvador, Tibet and Honduras have been indirectly and directly linked to threats, rape, disappearances, shootings, and murder of those who carry out community education and organization to oppose the mines. Tragically, Canadian mining corporations act with impunity; most governments and judicial institutions are unable or unwilling to effectively regulate transnational corporations, and those suffering harms outside Canada have no recourse in Canadian or international law. Worse still, Canadians actually finance this private corporate plunder though investment of public money. The Canadian government proactively partners with the mining industry, funding and insuring overseas operations, through both domestic institutions (like Export Development Canada) and the multilateral development banks. Public and union pensions have hundreds of millions of dollars invested in Canadian extractive corporations. How is it that in Canada and in Vancouver, so many of us unknowingly—but actively— support and benefit from the unjust practices of Canadian mining corporations? With gold at an all-time high, powerful mining corporations devote millions to greenwashing campaigns—spinning a positive public image. In Vancouver, mining companies accused of responsibility for water contamination and violent repression fund our hospital foundations, cancer centers, arts organizations and children's charities. Their names are on the buildings of our university campuses and on displays at the Vancouver Meanwhile, stories of devastation from mining-affected communities are rarely covered in mainstream media. In the long term, local people pay the price of water, land and air contamination, water scarcity, repression and conflict, while huge benefits flow to a small group of North American mining executives and shareholders. Together, we can confront these systemic abuses, and take action to support affected communities in their demands for peace, land preservation, secure livelihoods, and self- determination! video sources - This video was made in an educational setting for educational purposes. all that glitters isn't gold - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp4jBtL7kxs barrick gold environmental rehabilitation- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYPYv6kEzok al jazeera - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrAyMLpPsko, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCpYf8B1vYs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdDqmQ-6DBk goldcorp recruitment - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aotf5f2C6zc sipakapa no se vende - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1N8I54zong tambogrande: mangos, muerte, minería - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2pbZqfcQ8 violent evictions at el estor - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q20YxkM-CGI

Wide of rally in front of the embassy 17. Pan right of protesters lifting their left arms up in front of the embassy during the rally STORYLINE: Around 250 protesters lit candles and chanted slogans in front of the Canadian Embassy in Mexico City on Thursday in a show of support for a slain anti-mining activist known for criticising the environmental practices of Canadian companies working in Mexico. Mariano Abarca Robledo was shot in the head and chest on Friday by a man on a motorcycle in the town of Chicomuselo, near the Guatemalan border, an activist who worked with Abarca Robledo organising opposition to barite mining in the region said. Abarca Robledo was known for his sustained efforts to protest against Calgary-based Blackfire Exploration Ltd., a private mining company with interests in southern Mexico. He blamed the company's activities for contaminated local rivers and for the death of local crops and livestock. He and other activists had lobbied for Blackfire's departure from the region, according to the Council of Canadians. Activists had said that Abarca Robledo feared for his life and recently told police that Blackfire mine officials had threatened him. "If he didn't give up the fight they were going to get rid of him, they were going to shoot him," one activist, Gustavo Castro said. During Thursday's rally protesters waved signs denouncing Blackfire and other Canadian firms with mining operations in the country. "When we take showers we notice that we are getting stains on our skin, and so we stand up and fight and demand that these companies go away and leave our mines," one activist from Chiapas, Luz Perez Torres, said. A spokesman for Blackfire on Wednesday said the company had no involvement in the death. He spoke on condition of anonymity, citing advice from his attorney. The spokesman said Blackfire had asked the Canadian Embassy in Mexico to intervene after receiving allegations that their Chiapas mine employees were being attacked and beaten in response to the killing.

The song stresses that if you don't know how to do responsibly...just don't mine it. At the end of the course, the students have to sing parodies related to the environmental impacts of mining. This is a talent show and the winner receives $ 1000.

(Not) Canada's Way
Are you ready to stand up for justice for mining-affected communities in the Global South? If the approval of a mine meant you would be kicked off your land, would you expect a chance to say no this project? And if it went ahead, would you expect to be compensated? If your drinking water were poisoned or water sources dried up -- would you expect someone to fix the problem? Canada's companies are the biggest players in the mining sector in developing countries. Their wealth and backing by the Canadian government mean they often have privileged treatment by host governments. Are Canadian mining companies too big to be held accountable for -- - Environmental crimes? - Violence committed by their local personnel? - Influence peddling with host governments? - Tax avoidance? Join us to call for: - Legislated access to Canadian courts for people who have been harmed by the international operations of Canadian companies - Creation of an extractive-sector Ombuds office in Canada mandated to investigate accusations of abuses and make recommendations to the government and the companies involved.

We are going through the permitting process now. That is the only mill that will be in the cobalt camp. We are also going through a pilot plant scale test work for developing the product that the Asian market has asked us" States Frank Basa, President, CEO and Director of Canada Cobalt Works Inc. (TSXV: CCW | OTCQB: CCWOF), in an interview with InvestorIntel Corp. CEO Tracy Weslosky. Tracy Weslosky: Frank, I am really excited to have you here today. We would love to get an update on Canada Cobalt, which I understand is the most advanced cobalt play in Canada. Is that correct?  Frank Basa: Yes. I think not just in Canada, but I think globally. What we have done here, originially we started just as an exploration play. Then we went to Asia and we spent a bit of time in Japan, a bit of time in China and we came back and we changed our focus. What we are doing is what we call real time development. We are going for our permits to install a mill on site. Actually we have already sourced the equipment. We are going through the permitting process now. That is the only mill that will be in the cobalt camp. We are also going through a pilot plant scale test work for developing the product that the Asian market has asked us, which is basically a cobalt-sulfate originally, now they are asking for a nickel-sulphate, a manganese sulphate and a copper-sulphate. We are also carrying one exploration program. We actually did one step further. We actually went underground. Nobody else is underground, that I am aware of anywhere. We are the only ones that are actually drilling underground. We are actually taking bulk samples, doing a mine development right now underground, permitting for a mill, to install a mill, the only one in the cobalt camp. We are also all over the world listening to everybody what they want as an end product. In other words, we are not producing cobalt. We do have a process and we are using SGS to show the world we can produce cobalt sulphate. Tracy Weslosky: I am going to step back. For those of you who may be familiar with Canada Cobalt Works, which you just recently got your OTC listing as well.  Frank Basa: Yes we did. Tracy Weslosky: You are positioned to become a vertically integrated North American leader in cobalt extraction and recovery. I noticed, speaking of real time, you have a lot of news releases coming out. I am going to have you just back up and explain your competitive advantage of where you are actually located and give us an overview please. Frank Basa:  See the cobalt camp itself is actually quite large. It is about 180 kilometers in diameter, at one time had over 108 mines operating. We know the camp quite well. I used to work for Agnico Eagle Mines in the camp. At that time we did mine the cobalt veins. We only took the silver out; we threw the cobalt away. At that time we decided, the company decided, let us see if we recover the cobalt, which we did develop a process at that time. It took us 6 years to develop it. At that time that it was made we were targeting actually the cattle industry.  The cattle industry apparently needs cobalt carbonate.  At that time the market was cobalt carbonate and the cattle needed it as part of their feed. Time went forward, silver market crashed. The mines got shutdown. Management changed at Agnico and Agnico, of course, divested out of certain assets and we picked up the two best assets that Agnico had. Then we also started a very simple program...to access the complete interview, click here Disclaimer: Canada Cobalt Works Inc. is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel Corp. #Cobalt #BatteryMetals
