Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines
 
29:23
Gold Dust: Under Blaise Compaore's leadership, Burkina Faso's unregulated gold rush has had a devastating effect on mining conditions. This report digs deep into the industry, exposing the corruption beneath Compaore's ruling. Millions of people - including children as young as fourteen - mine in an unregulated industry for a few golden grams of hope. Marcel toils underground to support his family - but without the glittering rewards promised. “We all have hope, we hope to earn” he says, but "they rob us here...They treat the miner like an animal." 17-year old Soumaele has been mining for two years. His thin body can go to even deeper than the older men, to places where the air is impossible to breathe and the tunnels are likely to collapse. Gold promises a great deal, but in an anarchic industry, teacher Soungalo Hema fears for the future of children like Soumaele: "You try and save them", she says, "but a lot of the time it’s in vain. I ask myself 'what will happen to all of us?'"

How Coal Is Mined and Refined - Top Coal Mining Spots in the World - Documentaries. Welcome to DOCUMENTARIES - home of the best documentary movies and documentary films. Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States, "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers.

The Principle of Longwall Top Coal Caving (LTCC)
 
03:58
Caterpillar has extensive experience in the design of roof supports for specific mining conditions. Cat Longwall Top Coal Caving (LTCC) roof supports allow mining of seams seams thicker than 6 meters (20 feet). Following a conventional cut with a shearer to about 3 m (9.8 ft) the roof supports move forward and allow the caving of the top coal behind the roof supports a second conveyor mounted gob-side. This special LTCC method enables increased coal reserve recovery for only an incremental additional cost. This animation shows how it works.

A Day in the Life of a Wigan Coal Miner 1911
 
10:06
Filmed by Keystone in 1911 for the LNWR ( London & North Western Railway ) who had their own full time film unit. The film was produced to feature both a typical Lancashire colliery served by the LNWR and also the women surface workers or Pit Brow Lasses who had been in the news after moves to legislate against their empoyment on the surface at collieries. More women surface workers were employed at Lancashire collieries than in any other coalfield. The colliery featured was Alexandra Colliery of Wigan Coal & Iron Co Ltd. Shafts were sunk at the colliery from 1856 in an ancient mining district, records going back to the 14th century. The shaft eventually reached 772 yards and the Arley seam. The famous Haigh Cannel seam was also accessed. The colliery closed in June 1955.

Turkey coal mine blast: transformer explodes underground, kills more than 200
 
00:50
More than 200 coal miners are dead and dozens more remain trapped deep underground in Turkey following an explosion and fire inside a mine shaft between 1 to 2 kilometers deep. The explosion was reportedly caused by an electrical fault inside a transformer and is believed to have caused a fire inside the mine shaft. According to the BBC, the blast also triggered a power cut, which made the lifts unusable, leaving hundreds of miners stranded underground. To assist any miners still trapped while rescue efforts are undergoing, CNN reported that officials have turned an outlet pipe into a clean air pipe to allow fresh air to enter places where there is no fire. Thirty workers have been rescued so far but as many as 400 workers may still be underground. According to local newspaper Today's Zaman, mining accidents are common in Turkey, which is plagued by poor safety conditions. The country's worst mining disaster was in 1992, the BBC reported, when 270 miners were killed near Zonguldak on the Black Sea.

Columbia - Child coal mining situation addressed

T/I: 10:56:52 In Colombia parents are coming together to rescue their children from the highly dangerous job of underground coal mining. Driven by economic need, child coal miners are employed by mine operators in some of the most hazardous work conditions. Growing local and international concern about the situation has led to the formation of community action programmes intended to stop child labour in the mines. Children, parents and social workers meet to discuss economic and educational alternatives that will help to break the syndrome of poverty and child labour. Consequently, children are learning to create artworks made out of coal that can be sold in the city craft shops.

The demonstration in Petrosani came after negotiations with government officials in Bucharest broke down. One miner who had taken part in the negotiations said: "We were not satisfied with the results, so we are going to continue till the end." The miners threatened to walk to the Romanian capital, some miles 205 miles (330 kilometres) away, but police prevented them by blocking a bridge leading out of the city. Miners want the state-owned company to respect a January agreement that gives them a 10 percent wage increase. As miners sang their anthem some were in tears, with one saying "We have nothing, we are starving along with our children in cold houses, we are working for nothing and the leaders are stealing from us." The state-owned coal mining company in Petrosani has seven mines and employs 7,800 people. Romania is expected to lay off 3,300 mining employees by 2018, as part of an agreement with the International Monetary Fund. With some mines already closed in the region, and others due to follow, life is becoming harder for the people in Petrosani, where standards of living are amongst the lowest in the country.

Cursed by Coal: Mining the Navajo Nation

There's a resource curse on the Navajo Nation. The 27,000-square-mile reservation straddling parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah has an extremely high abundance of many energy resources — particularly coal. That coal is what's burned to provide much of the Southwest with electricity, and it creates jobs for the Navajo. But the mining and burning have also caused environmental degradation, serious health issues, and displacement. VICE News travels to the Navajo Nation to find out how its abundance of coal is affecting the future of the Navajo people.

Thousands of demonstrators flooded the streets of Jerada city in Northeastern Morocco on Tuesday, calling for justice and better living conditions in the city after the death of two coal miners last week. The demonstrations have been on since Friday, the day when two brothers aged 23 and 30 died during the collapse of an abandoned coal mine they were digging. Outraged grew following the rescue operation that reportedly took 36 hours to extract the bodies. Demonstrators chanted, calling for a fair investigation of the tragedy, as well as compensation for the families of the victims. On Monday, the general strike attracted around 3,000 people, with shops and cafes being closed around the city. People also protested the economic policy of the government that encourages people to dig abandoned mines in dangerous conditions. According to reports, the mine, that was closed in 1990, used to employ over 9,000 people.

Colombia : The Children of the Coal Mines
 
26:43
200 metres underground, in unhealthy shafts, they dig… they are 9 or 10 years old and they work in the mines of Boyaca, the biggest coal deposit in Colombia. It was in 1993 that a report documented the lives of Jairo, Oscar, Jaime… the mole children. 17 years later, Edouard Bergeon found them and showed them the images they had never seen. “I’m here underground like a mole. Imagine what I’m going to end up like. I started working when I was 10. I’m 32 and I’m still down the mine. I do it for my kids, to give them food and allow them to study.” His children, his wife, his mother discover for the first time the images of Oscar aged 10 pushing his coal barrow. Jaider also has a family, which he only sees at weekends. During the week he digs coal a six-hour drive from his home. Things haven’t changed much since his childhood. At 13, Jaider was already denouncing his working conditions, “I risk my life every day and I’m scared. I know people who never came out.” The image that stays in the memory is of Jairo’s face as he comes out of the mine, panting, with a sack of coal on his back. Today Jairo has been spared the silicosis that is killing his father. He left the mine to join the army. “If I weren’t in the army, I’d still be down the mine. And tomorrow I’d be in the same condition as my father.” Jaider wanted to show his colleagues the documentary filmed 17 years ago, in which he was one of the principal characters. “Seeing such a small child with a sack of coal on his back. Out of breath… It’s very hard. When I started I was 9… before Jaider. Now you can’t make children work. The slavery of that time is over.” And yet… when Oscar takes reporters 170 metres underground… deep in the bowels of the earth, five mole children of today, five little black faces like his, stare at Jaider, the mole child of 1993.

The film's place of action is The Borinage, a district in the Belgian Hainaut province that had been a mining area for centuries. The filmmaker Patric Jean, who was born here, shows a region that reminds us of the Great depression years in the 1930's. The film is of particular interest because it unravels the social fabric of a peoples struck down by unemployement, without any prospect and lacking the fighting spirit to change their deplorable living conditions.

COAL MINE SHUTTLE CAR OPERATOR MINING  45734
 
09:06
“The Shuttle Car Operator” is 1960s-era color film taking the viewer deep inside a bituminous coal mine to learn more about the coal-mining industry. The camera takes us into cramped spaces as drills make their way through the earth (mark 01:15) and coal hauled away on trolleys called shuttle cars. But the job of a shuttle car operator is one of the most dangerous in the coal mining industry, we’re told at mark 02:10, with one out of every seven transportation injuries involving shuttle car operators. To ensure safety the film discusses the importance of proper car maintenance and proper training of employees. Numerous scenes of shuttle cars in the bowels of the earth follow as the narrator continuously reminds the viewer of the importance of being vigilent and on the lookout for any physical hazards that may impede movement. Starting at mark 04:45 the film reminds of the viewer of those men who “paid with their lives” as crews are shown at work including checking ventilation shafts and removing hazards — though “failure to think about safety” leads to a (staged) fatality at mark 07:55. Other accidents follow, the result of workers too engaged in conversation and oblivious to changes in their underground environment, or those inadequately trained. If an operator is trained and alert, we’re told at mark 15:50, such tragedy can be averted. First introduced in the 1930s, shuttle cars are batch haulage vehicles in the underground mining industry. Shuttle cars are designed to work as a system with continuous miners, efficiently removing cut material from the working face and maximizing the productivity of the entire section. Heavy-duty, high-power drive trains enable our shuttle cars to haul heavy loads in the most difficult conditions. Traction motors power the permanent four-wheel drive system. The cast pivot axles are virtually indestructible, while the heavy-duty conveyors and abrasion-resistant conveyor decking improve reliability and durability.

Inside a Cursed Appalachian Mining Town
 
25:20
In the late 1800s, traveling preacher Robert Sheffey cursed the town of Ivanhoe, Virginia, after witnessing what one female resident describes as “houses of ill repute, fighting, drunkenness, and a rejection of his ministry by the townspeople.” Legend has it that Sheffey condemned the sinful town to sink into the earth and be consumed by the pits of hell. “Whether you believe in it or not, after that happened, we lost everything,” says the same Ivanhoe resident in this short documentary. “We have nothing.” Today, Ivanhoe is even plagued by sinkholes—multiple houses have disappeared entirely into the earth.

MINING SAFETY FILM  COAL MINE SHUTTLE CAR OPERATOR  45734
 
19:12
“The Shuttle Car Operator” is 1960s-era color film taking the viewer deep inside a bituminous coal mine to learn more about the coal-mining industry. The camera takes us into cramped spaces as drills make their way through the earth (mark 01:15) and coal hauled away on trolleys called shuttle cars. But the job of a shuttle car operator is one of the most dangerous in the coal mining industry, we’re told at mark 02:10, with one out of every seven transportation injuries involving shuttle car operators. To ensure safety the film discusses the importance of proper car maintenance and proper training of employees. Numerous scenes of shuttle cars in the bowels of the earth follow as the narrator continuously reminds the viewer of the importance of being vigilent and on the lookout for any physical hazards that may impede movement. Starting at mark 04:45 the film reminds of the viewer of those men who “paid with their lives” as crews are shown at work including checking ventilation shafts and removing hazards — though “failure to think about safety” leads to a (staged) fatality at mark 07:55. Other accidents follow, the result of workers too engaged in conversation and oblivious to changes in their underground environment, or those inadequately trained. If an operator is trained and alert, we’re told at mark 15:50, such tragedy can be averted. First introduced in the 1930s, shuttle cars are batch haulage vehicles in the underground mining industry. Shuttle cars are designed to work as a system with continuous miners, efficiently removing cut material from the working face and maximizing the productivity of the entire section. Heavy-duty, high-power drive trains enable our shuttle cars to haul heavy loads in the most difficult conditions. Traction motors power the permanent four-wheel drive system. The cast pivot axles are virtually indestructible, while the heavy-duty conveyors and abrasion-resistant conveyor decking improve reliability and durability.

5 Worst Jobs Given To Children In History
 
14:42
Throughout history children have often been utilised as nothing more than cheap and convenient labour, forced to undertake a whole host of unbelievable and downright dangerous jobs. In an age before legislation which protects the rights of workers, and enforces a minimum working age, young children were often at the mercy of ruthless adults, keen to exploit them for personal profit. So next time you think you are having a bad day at work, spare a thought for these unfortunate souls… 5. Mudlarks 4. Mule Scavengers 3. Coal Miners 2. Chimney Sweeps 1.

Coal Mines Of Cape Breton (Part 2)
 
03:37
Coal Mining in Cape Breton Nova Scotia. Music By IIIrd Tyme Out, Coal Mine Blues. Early Mining The southeastern part of Cape Breton Island is home to the Sydney Coal Field, an extensive underground coal seam extending at an angle from the shore beneath the seafloor of the Cabot Strait. This large deposit of high-sulphur coal was first extracted by French soldiers from Fortress Louisbourg in 1720 at nearby Port Morien. A major coal industry developed during the 19th century, becoming the largest energy project in British North America at its height of production. The largest integrated steel mill in the British Commonwealth was constructed on Sydney Harbor in 1901. The coal and steel industries went into decline following World War II and never fully recovered. They were nationalized by the federal and provincial governments during the late 1960s with the intention of closing them by the 1980s, however production increased in the 1970s as a result of rising world oil and steel prices. By the 1990s, environmental degradation (see Sydney Tar Ponds) and economic ruin was facing the industrial Cape Breton region. The steel mill and last coal mine were closed in 2001 and the area has been struggling to adapt. While the urban area of eastern Cape Breton County influenced by the coal and steel industries came to be referred to as "Industrial Cape Breton", many rural communities in the rest of Cape Breton Island have been relatively stable economically, largely due to the mix of fishing, forestry, small-scale agriculture, and a growing tourism industry as a result of the spectacular scenery found throughout the island. In 1914 the SCOTIA steel mill was closed and in 1920 both DOMCO/DISCO and SCOTIA were merged into a new company named British Empire Steel and Coal Company (BESCO). The copyright of this section might be in question and is likely from UMWA material. IN MARCH OF 1925, Cape Breton coal miners were receiving $3.65 in daily wages and had been working part-time for more than three years. They burned company coal to heat company houses illuminated by company electricity. Their families drank company water, were indebted to the company "Pluck Me" store and were financially destitute as evidenced by the company "Bob Tailed Sheet". Local clergy spoke of children clothed in flour sacks and dying of starvation from the infamous "four cent meal". The miners had fought continuously since 1909 for decent working conditions, an eight hour day and a living wage. The British Empire Steel Corporation (BESCO) was controlled by President Roy M. Wolvin and Vice-President J.E. McClurg who defended these conditions by frankly stating, DEVCO and SYSCO On July 7, 1967 the Cape Breton Development Corporation (DEVCO) was created and on March 30, 1968 all DOSCO mines were expropriated for $12 million by DEVCO. At the same time, the provincial government formed the Sydney Steel Corporation (SYSCO) and took over DOSCO's steel mill, with the aim being to gradually control the shut down of this industry. DEVCO brought in new tourism initiatives throughout Cape Breton Island and funded various community economic development programs, however politics and other factors such as the 1973 oil crisis brought about by the OPEC embargo following the Yom Kippur War saw demand for coal increase dramatically, particularly for electrical generation. The federal government reversed course and chose to expand, rather than retract, the production of coal and opened new mines and modernized its DOSCO-inherited properties to serve new electrical generating stations. During the 1980s the provincial government also modernized the steel mill, however both coal and steel encountered production and financial difficulties in the 1990s and DEVCO and SYSCO both decommissioned their operations by the turn of the century or shortly thereafter. The last underground coal mine on Cape Breton Island closed in November 2001. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

CHINA: YANGQIAO: COAL INDUSTRY FACES SEVERE FINANCIAL CUT BACKS
 
02:51
Mandarin/Eng/Nat China's coal production is under threat as one of the country's major industries faces financial cutbacks. Besieged mines also face another threat to their productivity -- illegal mining. One mine that has been particularly hard hit is the state owned coal mine in the Jiangxi province. The coal mine at Yangqiao in Jiangxi province has been established for more than a decade now but mining here has been going on for the last 100 years. The mine is a state owned operation and employs more than 5-thousand workers in the local area. It is one of six run by the regional authority of Pingxiang Coal Mines bureau. Yangqiao has been losing money since it opened in 1985, falling short of its 3 (m) million tonnes expected output, each year. Cuts to state funding have damaged what little profits were being made and have left many of the locals out of a job. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "All together we have now 60,000 people in this area. We are not able yet to switch to a third industry, previously the Ministry of Coal Industry gave us 100 million Yuan of subsidiary per year (US dollars 12.1 million), In 1995, we got only 30 million Yuan subvention (US dollars 3 million). This year there won't be any subsidiary." SUPER CAPTION: LEI Guojin, Chief Engineer Pingxiang Area Coal Mine Conditions under ground are harsh. Many miners spend an average of ten hours a day down the shafts working in the wet and the damp. Work safety is not high on the agenda -- the tunnel walls are supported by flimsy bits of wood. The extraction work is done manually and the level of danger has led to a morbid government death allowance of one man per one million tonnes of coal. In reality the percentages are higher, with over five men dying for every one million tonnes of coal produced. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) " Because of the bad geological conditions of the coal layers, we cannot use automatic equipment so workers have very hard working conditions, it is typically labour intensive and it's very difficult to guarantee safety." SUPER CAPTION: LEI Guojin, Chief Engineer Pingxiang Area Coal Mine SOUNDBITE: (English) "Those expenses if and when you have to incur them, in terms of taking care of somebody who doesn't die quickly, as a consequence we are talking ten, 20 years from now. The coal that is being mined now is not going to turn up in terms of expenditures tomorrow." SUPER CAPTION: Bill Barron, Hong Kong University Despite the human and financial costs, the biggest problem officials face comes from the farmers in the area who have transformed themselves into miners. They dig for themselves or an employer from some of the 80 illegally established pits around the Yangqiao mine. This man is working for a farmer. He carries up to 90 kilos of coal at a time and will take home almost three times more salary than the state employed worker. Apart from the economic losses, this side industry causes to the big mines -- estimated at up to 10 million yuan (US dollars 1.2 million) -- illegal mining is making the state-owned mines even more treacherous. In the wet season these holes, some 80 to 100 meters deep, fill with water causing underground torrents that flood the main mine. Last year more than 50 state workers drowned underground.
