Webinar : Frac Sand Mining -  Fracking’s Hidden Connection to America’s Breadbasket
Among those familiar with fracking, many are not as familiar with frac sand mining -- the process by which industry removes, excavates, and processes silica sand for hydraulic fracturing across the country. Much of this activity is concentrated in the Midwest region of the U.S. and, consequently, impacts farmers and landowners in that region. Join Halt the Harm to learn from Frac Sand Sentinel's Pat Popple, dairy farmer and impacted landowner Ken Schmitt and FracTracker’s Ted Auch. The speakers spoke to issues locally in Wisconsin and beyond and also discuss the current ongoing debates on impacts to health, residents, and the environment by the industry.

Woman Describes Life "Trapped" in Frac Sand Mining District
FULL verbatim interview @ http://www.WIvoices.org Small business owner, Brenda Tabor-Adams, lives with her husband and 2-year-old son in a silica frac sand mining district between New Auburn and Chetek, WI. They are surrounded by mines. Two separate facilities are within a third of a mile and three more are within one mile of her once-quiet, rural property. In addition, several more mines are proposed or already operating nearby. Brenda's clients now compete with 1,000 sand trucks per day, or 20 trucks every 15 minutes, in order to get their horse trailers in and out of her property. With trucks running for 12 hours/day, 6 days/week, her life has been turned upside down. Dismissed as "collateral damage" by local officials, she fears for the environmental impact, the health of her family and neighbors and the sustainability of her small business. Tabor-Adams also details troubling issues that regular people face when dealing with multimillion dollar mining companies, including lawyers threatening lawsuits, town and county boards "stacked" with pro-sand officials, and the understaffing and underfunding of the Department of Natural Resources tasked to protect the land and the people. Brenda says, "Our government has failed us miserably..."

MN Frac Sand Mining Hearing - full hearing
MN Frac Sand Mining Hearing - full hearing from The UpTake. Like this? Watch the latest episode of The UpTake on Blip! http://blip.tv/the-uptake/watch Here is an UpTake guide to the frac sand hearing held today by a joint meeting of the Minnesota Senate Committee on Environment Energy and the House Committee on Energy Policy. Video replay of the meeting above. Overview The first time that fracking has been on the Legislature?s agenda, today?s hearing is expected to draw busloads of opponents from counties along the Mississippi River Valley in southeastern Minnesota, where silica sand deposits have spurred a sudden growth in industrial sand mining. Alarmed by the transformation of southwestern Wisconsin into a pockmarked landscape of sand pits, Minnesotans began organizing grassroots resistance to industrial scale silica sand mining in 2011, demanding that local governments place a moratorium on new mines and processing. Mining interests have dismissed opponents as ill-informed Nimbys, while touting the jobs sand mining creates when silica sand is extracted, stockpiled, processed, and hauled off to America?s shale oil and gas fields. The particular quality of sand buried beneath the bluffs and fields in the upper Midwest is particularly prized for hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. While that oil-extracting process in states such as North Dakota is controversial in itself, no fracking takes place in Minnesota. Citizen opposition stems from concerns over the health, safety and environmental implications peculiar to sand mining. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton said in December that he expected fracking to be a ?huge? issue during this year?s legislative session and Sen. John Marty (DFL-Roseville), the chairman of the Senate Environment and Energy Committee, said today?s hearing is meant for lawmakers to get a clear idea who has authority over the industry and who?s responsible for looking at the risks. Opponents want a state-imposed moratorium to replace several local moratoriums that expire soon or already have expired. Jim Gurley, a Winona, Minn., activist who has been a leader in the fight against frac sand mining, says a state moratorium is important because the large-scale environmental study opponents are seeking might take more than a year. Without a state moratorium, there will be little to stop the industry from moving ahead once the local roadblocks expire. The Players: Pro and Con At a meeting of the state Environmental Quality Board last September, the line was ?Jobs, jobs, jobs:? Frac sand mining proponents argue that an environmental review isn?t needed, and little has changed in the arguments advanced by the sand mining industry and its friends. Now, as then, silica sand mining advocates argue that they don?t need any additional regulation or supervision as digging up sand is already heavily regulated. New to the discussion are generous estimates of job creation from the Heartland Institute, a conservative anti-environmental think tank based in Chicago, and from the Minnesota Industrial Sand Council (MISC), a new mining lobby of the Aggregate and Ready-Mix Association of Minnesota. Recently, MISC hired Red Wing, Minn., Mayor Dennis Egan as its executive director, a controversial move criticized by mining opponents as inappropriate. Other lobbyists hired by MISC include civil engineer Kirsten Pauly. She spoke in support of the industry at the EQB meeting last fall; in January, KEYC-TV in Mankato, Minn., reported that Pauly presented the results of an environmental assessment worksheet (EAW) for Jordan Sands, which hopes to open a sand processing site in Lime Township near Mankato. Egan and others seek to be able to self-regulate and tout the use of voluntary ?best practices.? In addition to the ethical issues it raised, Egan?s new job bolstered one argument made by grassroots anti-sand activists: That the industry rewards local officials who support mining proposals. Moreover, lucrative ownership and annexation changes such as have been seen in Wisconsin cause mining opponents to warn that local permit protections can melt away suddenly. Health and safety concerns rank highest but aren?t the matters most residents say they worry about. Local property owners worry about the erosion of their property values as the enormous mines destroy working rural landscapes while truck and train traffic rumbles past their homes. Citizens in St. Charles, Minn., the gateway to Whitewater State Park, and small town tourist-mecca Lanesboro, Minn., fret about the impact on the tourism industry while farmers worry about water and soil contamination. Ponds holding silica sand slurry have burst in Wisconsin, contaminating surface water. Other opponents worry about groundwater and wellhead contamination. Citizen opponents are organized in groups such as Save The Bluffs in Goodhue County (Red Wing is the county seat) to the Houston County Protectors.

Environmentalists oppose new sand mining regulations
Some environmentalists say that a plan to regulate the sand mining industry after the cabinet approved a policy that classifies it as a mineral could attract huge investments which could, in turn, have negative effects. The ICT and National Guidance Minister Frank Tumwebaze announced this week that cabinet had approved a policy to classify sand, murram as minerals.

Rural Areas Should Expect To Smell Bad Says Sen. Rosen
Potentially environmentally hazardous dust and bad smells are just "inconveniences" that people living in rural areas should expect to put up with because they live in a farm area. So says Minnesota State Senator Julie Rosen (R). She made the comments as Minnesota considers more stringent regulations for frac sand mining and transportation. The mining industry is regulated by a patchwork of weak local laws that have proven no match for the boom in silica sand mining that fuels the fracking for oil in nearby North Dakota. Transcript: It just seems like every time thereapos;s an issue, and whether itapos;s a transmission line coming through, now itapos;s silica sand, or itapos;s maybe some feedlot regulation? this is agriculture. People live in agricultural land. They have to expect the smells, the dust and the inconveniences and their roads beat up because that is what happens. (Crowd moans) Mr. Chair?

Silicosis & Crystalline Silica
Silica exposure remains a serious threat to close to several million U.S. workers, including more than 100,000 workers in high risk jobs such as abrasive blasting, foundry work, stonecutting, rock drilling, quarry work, and tunneling. Exposure also occurs during many different construction activities and some manufacturing processes. Crystalline silica has been classified as a human lung carcinogen. Silicosis is a disease of the lungs due to the breathing of dust containing crystalline silica particles. This dust can cause fibrosis or scar tissue formations in the lungs that reduce the lung's ability to work to extract oxygen from the air.

Proposed SB 349 "dangerous and reckless" says Wisconsin Mother about Frac Sand Legislation
www.wivoices.org WIvoices.org 10/13/13 Senate Bill 349 "is dangerous and reckless," says mother Julie Augesen, whose 7-year-old twins attend school near a proposed silica frac sand mine. ugesen and other citizens around the state of Wisconsin may lose local control of mining sites in their communities. Currently, municipalities may regulate air and water standards appropriate for each location. If this bill passes, that power would transfer to the state, leaving "our hands tied to protect our children" from silica dust and other hazards says Augesen. In Glenwood City, WI, where a 400-acre frac sand mine is proposed less than ½ mile from the public school of 650 children, Augesen claims she would rather leave the area than risk her children's health, "even if that meant walking away from our home." Augesen says she wouldn't want to make the decision to go into foreclosure on her family's home, but "if it meant my kids' health, then yeah, I would do it." Adding a sense of urgency is the discovery by Glenwood area residents that silica dust was recently discovered in a neighboring town's school air filter.

Fracking Farmhouse - Concerned Health professionals of NY Compendium
David Kestevens outlines the contents of the newly released (March 2018) 'Compendium of Scientific, Medical, and Media Findings Demonstrating Risks and Harms of Fracking'. Download here: http://concernedhealthny.org/compendium/ The Compendium of Scientific, Medical, and Media Findings Demonstrating Risks and Harms of Fracking (the Compendium) is a fully referenced compilation of the evidence outlining the risks and harms of fracking. The Compendium is organized to be accessible to public officials, researchers, journalists, and the public at large. In addition, the Compendium is complemented by a fully searchable, near-exhaustive citation database of peer-reviewed journal articles pertaining to shale gas and oil extraction, the Repository for Oil and Gas Energy Research, that was developed by PSE Healthy Energy and which is housed on its website (https://www.psehealthyenergy.org/our-work/shale-gas-research-library/). For this fifth edition of the Compendium, as prior ones, we collected and compiled findings from three sources: articles from peer-reviewed medical or scientific journals; investigative reports by journalists; and reports from, or commissioned by, government agencies. Peer-reviewed articles were identified through databases such as PubMed and Web of Science, and from within the PSE Healthy Energy database. Our entries briefly describe studies that document harm, or risk of harm, associated with fracking and summarize the principal findings. The studies and investigations referenced in the dated entries catalogued in Compilation of Studies & Findings are current through December 2017. In our review of the data, seventeen compelling themes emerged; these serve as the organizational structure of the Compendium. Readers will notice the ongoing upsurge in reported problems and health impacts, making each section top-heavy with recent data. The Compendium focuses on topics most closely related to the public health and safety impacts of unconventional gas and oil drilling and fracking. We also include in this edition a section on risks from fracking infrastructure that focuses on compressor stations, pipelines, silica sand mining operations, natural gas storage facilities, and, for the first time, the manufacture and transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Given the rapidly expanding body of evidence related to the harms and risks of unconventional oil and gas extraction, we plan to continue revising and updating the Compendium approximately every year. It is a living document, housed on the websites of Concerned Health Professionals of New York and Physicians for Social Responsibility. Read more about the process and scope of our work in the “About this Report” and the “Foreword to the Fifth Edition” sections of the Compendium.

CAPITOL REPORT: Balancing Mining and Environmental Interests
The Minnesota Dept. of Natural Resources will face growing challenges balancing the protection of Minnesota's resources with the desire for economic growth. Southeastern Minnesota provides the greatest opportunity for silica sand mining, and DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr talks with Julie about steps the agency is taking to secure the proper balance. Senator Matt Schmit, DFL-Red Wing, sponsored legislation during the 2013 legislative session that would have imposed a state moratorium on future silica sand mining in Minnesota. In the end, local government's could extend moratoriums for two years, and state agencies were charged with overseeing mining permits. He joins Julie to review the legislation and offer his views on the future of silica sand mining and its impact on Minnesota resources and industry. In other State Capitol action, the state is creating an online website, to be operational October 1st, 2013, that will aid in the search and purchase of health insurance. Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner James Schowalter provides several answers about the future workings of Minnesota's health exchange, known as MNsure. Finally, highlights of action this week by the State Capitol Preservation Committee that endorse the first major interior renovation of the State Capitol.
Fracking Hell [& secret mining ?]
A collection of YouTube video about fracking. Mostly from LinkTV.org / Earth Focus. [for educational purposes only] Fracking technology has a potential use for underground mining, using different chemical cocktails such as arsenic for gold and other heavy metals. Mining unseen, and unobjected to, because unknown though highly toxic. There may be no superfund cleanup for this type of contamination, several miles down, or out under your land or lands of others nearby. [It's your future, and your childrens. Think about the potential dangers remaining after the Oil is gone and these Mines] "Become a good Ancestor"
Fracking Creates Sand Boom
The process of Fracking requires a great amount of sand and therefore the sand market quite substantially.

Never Give Up _ Conflict Gravel
The people's struggle continues. Another permit appliciation is made to create even more mines right on top of Lake Errock. People making this application are tied to the current mine which is violatiing the current regulations. Citizens are outraged that our government is actually considering granting new permits to operations which are already in contempt of the communities concerns.. Citizen reminds the FVRD of what may happen if people sign contracts allowing the local citizens health to be put at risk with toxic silica dust issues.

More Details: http://www.pakistancrushers.com/contact.php environmental protection is a basic policy in our country, the required construction of artificial aggregate production, first of all should be designed to take full account of selection scheme for environmental protection, to make full use of waste slag are materials processing engineering excavation concrete aggregate, reduce material mining field the scope of the resource development and the natural environment tends to be harmony and unity. Production planning and design material, should choose the mining area is small, useful for large reserves of mining area, and the slope stability, with mining area supporting method put forward specific requirements, to prevent the improper design of the mountain mining instability and sliding on the engineering and human damage. The waste slag, waste generated in the process of mining the position should be stockpiled to take protective measures in the specified benefit, and make the drainage and protective design. The design of aggregate processing should meet the technical requirements of concrete aggregate, so as to choose the dry process which is relatively light to the environment. When choosing wet production process, we must adopt reasonable wastewater treatment technology to make comprehensive use of waste water and waste residue, turn waste into treasure, reduce waste residue as much as possible, and make it meet environmental protection requirements. In engineering construction, often requires a large amount of mining field for processing concrete aggregate. In the mining and manufacturing process and easy to the natural environment and the living environment of human production, damage and harm, including material mining on vegetation and slope destruction of security and stability, effect of dust, noise generated in the process of crushing and screening of air quality and living environment of mankind, and waste water, washing and screening make the rivers, valleys, land natural environment influence. The processing capacity of more than 500t/h sand production line, from the mountain mining wool generally need at least three broken, after three grade screening, grading can meet the requirements of the artificial sand and gravel. In the process of crushing and screening aggregate, in order to ensure the quality of finished aggregate and reduce processing costs, according to the general characteristics of raw materials and processing scale is different, according to the processing of the dry process and wet process production or all two processes. Aggregate crushing will produce a lot of dust and noise, screen through the motor drives the vibrator to make the material straight or circular motion in the screen surface material in the mechanical motion of sieve surface runout and sieving machine, will produce noise. Dry screening branch produces a large number of dust, wet screening, there is a large number of sewage treatment. Engineering monitoring data shows that the equipment is raised dust, free silica content is about the original rock crusher 63%-93%; sound level is greater than the 100dB; the level of vibration screen is greater than 110dB; for the index control in the production of finished products containing mud sand particles, wash water loss of useful 10%-30%. Therefore, in order to control and reduce the production of environmental pollution, we should first design equipment selection and process control, then environmental design in detail, and puts forward the technical measures and management measures to meet the environmental requirements of construction and operation management. Most of the sand processing equipment is a strong noise source and dust source, which pollute the surrounding environment and threaten the health of production personnel. The equipment selection and technical design should be considered in advance. (1) the choice of crusher, crushing process should meet the ratio under the premise of similar equipment try to choose a low center of gravity, rotor or plate movement of small amplitude, good protection performance of the equipment, from the source to minimize noise. (2) on the basis of ensuring the screening efficiency, the vibrating screen can choose the polyurethane screen with good damping effect as far as possible. (3) you should start from the concept of environmental protection system in the planning stage, the system is far from the office in the choice of the location of living facilities and residential areas, and at t http://www.agra-hotels.in/5661/cheapest-wet-grinder-dealers-in-chennai/ http://www.agra-hotels.in/5662/stone-sand-washing-machine-in-sri-lanka/ http://www.agra-hotels.in/5663/mining-equipment-manufacturers-in-russia/ http://www.agra-hotels.in/5664/where-to-buy-dolomite-mines-in-malaysia/

What is COPPER SLAG? What does COPPER SLAG mean? COPPER SLAG meaning, definition & explanation
What is COPPER SLAG? What does COPPER SLAG mean? COPPER SLAG meaning - COPPER SLAG definition - COPPER SLAG explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Copper slag is a by-product of copper extraction by smelting. During smelting, impurities become slag which floats on the molten metal. Slag that is quenched in water produces angular granules which are disposed of as waste or utilized as discussed below. Slag from ores that are mechanically concentrated before smelting contain mostly iron oxides and silicon oxides. Copper slag is mainly used for surface blast-cleaning. Abrasive blasting is used to clean and shape the surface of metal, stone, concrete and other materials. In this process, a stream of abrasive grains called grit are propelled toward the workpiece. Copper slag is just one of many different materials that may be used as abrasive grit. Rate of grit consumption, amount of dust generated, and surface finish quality are some of the variables affected by the choice of grit material. Internationally the described media is manufactured in compliance with ISO 11126-3 The blasting media manufactured from copper slag brings less harm to people and environment than sand. The product meets the most rigid health and ecological standards. Copper slag can be used in concrete production as a partial replacement for sand. Copper slag is used as a building material, formed into blocks. Such use was common in areas where smelting was done, including St Helens and Cornwall in England. In Sweden (Skelleftea region) fumed and settled granulated copper slag from the Boliden copper smelter is used as road-construction material. The granulated slag has both insulating and drainage properties which are usable to avoid ground frost in winter which in turn prevents pavement cracks. The usage of this slag reduces the usage of primary materials as well as reduces the construction depth which in turn reduces energy demand in building. Due to the same reasons the granulated slag is usable as a filler and insulating material in house foundations in a cold climate. Numerous houses in the same region are built with a slag insulated foundation.
