CEO Clips: Ross Orr | BacTech Environmental | Mining Solutions That Keep the Earth Green
Ross Orr, CEO of BacTech Environmental speaks on the company’s technology than cleans up historic mine tailings while solving the acid mine draining problem. “Our focus is on the waste that’s generated from the mining industry which tend to be called tailings and in tailings our sulfides that break down and create acid rock drainage. We’re a unique company in the sense that we use bio leaching technology. We’re the only company in the world that actually goes looking for arsenic. Arsenic is stabilized as a result of using bio leaching. And the big thing in mining is if you don’t have a commercial technology, you’re just another black box and there’s a lot of black boxes around. BacTech has commercial technology and we’re using it to leverage our way into projects where we can clean up historic mine tailings, solve the problem of the acid mine drainage and keep the metals for our own account. Partnership whit state mining company We have a partnership with Comibol, the state mining company of Bolivia. In Bolivia we’re going to be producing this year, we will produce tin, copper and silver. That cash flow then will drive other projects such as what we’re pursuing in Ecuador right now which is cleaning up our cyano pyrite tailings which is arsenic and gold tailings. We have a Canadian solution to a global problem, that being the remediation of historic mine tailings that have been left behind after hundreds of years of mining.” – Ross Orr, CEO of BacTech Environmental BacTech is a pioneering, environmental technology company that has developed and commercialized a proprietary technology to remediate highly toxic tailing areas resulting from abandoned mining operations. In addition, the Company recently added processing of arsenopyrite ores produced by artisanal miners in South America to its’ slate of offerings. The technology BacTech’s core technology, called “bioleaching”, employs naturally-occurring bacteria, harmless to both humans and the environment, to oxidize the sulphide materials left behind after years of mining. The tailings may contain ores and related materials contaminated by arsenic and other substances that are poisonous to humans and animals, as well as harmful to the local environment. The sulphides in the tailings react (oxidize) with the atmosphere to create an acidic solution called acid rock drainage (“ARD”), which leaches into the surrounding area over time. BacTech’s bioleaching process can stabilize these toxins from minerals and prevent additional harmful AMD. The technology provides a “Garden of Eden” environment for the bacteria to thrive and multiply and permits them to achieve in 6 days what would normally take 20 years to occur naturally.

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. We will hold special screenings with target audiences in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and other countries where mining poses an imminent threat. We are also seeking feedback from experts and practitioners on how to improve the content, and our distribution and implementation strategy. Get Involved!

Urban Mining - Gold in our trash - VPRO documentary - 2015
Our waste is worth money. Recovering it has started up a new global industry worth billions. It is called Urban Mining and it appears to be the solution for many of our environmental problems and our energy needs. And it is hot. A ton of broken mobile phones, computers or other electronic waste contains sixty times the amount of gold a ton of gold ore has. Moreover, it is easier to get at. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of total world demand for rare metals can be covered by urban mining and this is only the beginning. Urban Mining has a different, almost hilarious consequence: for years we have dumped our electronic waste in developing countries, with our eyes closed. There, it was to be recycled. But in Africa only one quarter of the gold, platinum and coltan is recovered whereas the newest technology in Belgium recovers almost 99 percent. So somewhere there’s a profit to be made. The NGO ‘Closing the Loop’ is buying up dead mobile phones and computer parts that we have dumped in developing countries making our waste a desirable sales item over there.

Australia's biodiversity: mining
Mining occurs throughout Australia, but its direct impacts on biodiversity are relatively limited compared with other major land uses because the areas affected are generally small. Dr Alan Andersen talks about the main impacts of mining on biodiversity and how these can be appropriately managed through processes like strategic regional assessments, use of bioindicators in rehabilitation, and biodiversity offsets.

Integrated mine closure good practice
Mineral resources are finite, making the eventual closure of a mining operation inevitable. Leaving a community with a sustainably rehabilitated landscape benefits everyone; the local community, the ecosystem and the reputation of the company. Planning for closure needs to be a collaboration between governments, industry and communities to both understand and address the environmental, social and economic impacts. Responsible closure involves the removal of all infrastructure and facilities, the rehabilitation of surface land, and taking all necessary measures to ensure community livelihoods are sustainable beyond the life of the mine. To mine with principles is to plan, design for, and implement responsible closure strategies. To sustainably manage the natural resources and biodiversity of our planet, enhancing the social wellbeing of local communities, and making financial provision to fulfill those plans. It is what we expect of our members. Our ICMM Integrated Mine Closure – Good Practice Guide provides mining companies with the information needed to effectively integrate closure across the mining life cycle. Visit our dedicated Integrated Mine Closure: Good Practice Guide website to find out more. Or download the guide in full as a PDF.

A Commitment to the Mining Industry
Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.

Bitcoin farms raise environmental concerns
(7 Feb 2018) LEAD IN Despite a rollercoaster ride in the price of Bitcoin  - the farms which mine the cryptocurrency are continuing to boom in Iceland. But the extra computer power required for them to stay competitive has raised concerns over their long term environmental impact. STORY-LINE This desolated peninsula in southwestern Iceland has emerged as a frontier in the global rush for Bitcoin and other energy intensive cryptocurrencies. The blockchain system behind Bitcoin is programmed so that everyone can hypothetically profit from its maintenance. The incentive has spiralled to a frenzy with the price of one Bitcoin rising at one point to nearly US$ 20,000 over the past year, only to fall below US$6,000 this week. Ever more computing power is needed to beat the competition, creating a competitive cycle that is raising concerns about Bitcoin's environmental toll. Data centres around the world competing for new Bitcoins (a process known as mining) are expected to consume as much electricity as Argentina this year, according to analysts at the American bank Morgan Stanley. At the edge of the Arctic, Bitcoin miners seek natural cooling and competitive prices for Iceland's abundance of renewable energy. The Associated Press visited the largest of three Bitcoin facilities on the outskirts of Keflavik, known as "Mjolnir" after the hammer of Thor, the Norse god of thunder. This cryptocurrency farm is doubling in size, with five 50-metre (55 yards) warehouse buildings under construction. "What we are doing here, like Bitcoin mining, is like gold mining," says Helmut Rauth, manager at Genesis Mining, one of world's largest Bitcoin mining companies, according to own accounts. Inside the mine, rows of computer rigs line the walls, each powering about six graphics cards, run around the clock. The computers are tasked with solving maths problems whose solutions are used to validate new Bitcoin transactions. In return, miners claim a fraction of a coin not yet in circulation. Bitcoin's algorithm limits the total amount of coins ever available to 21 million. About 80 percent of Bitcoins have already been mined, or nearly 17 million. The validation process was a garage-operation on private computers at the early age of Bitcoin when returns were low. Genesis Mining, founded in Germany, was an early adopter of industrialising the process, first moving to Iceland in 2014 when the price of Bitcoin fluctuated from 350 US Dollars to 1000 US Dollars. Today the Bitcoin is valued at around 7,000 US Dollars, after peaking at around 19,000 US Dollars in December last year. The currency took a hit in January when China announced it would move to wipe out its Bitcoin mining industry, following concerns of excessive electricity consumption. Rauth says Bitcoin should not be singled out as environmentally taxing. Computing power always demands energy, he argues, comparing Bitcoin to credit card transactions and internet research. "How much energy is needed for that? This is the same global impact," he explains. Keflavik's Bitcoin farms are powered with electricity from the Svartsengi geothermal energy plant about 20 kilometres away. Currently, 50 megawatts are estimated to be used for mining Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in Iceland. Compared with data from Iceland's National Energy Authority, that equals about half of what the island nation of 340,000 people use to power its homes. An energy expert at Svartsengi told the AP that the cryptocurrency industry would likely double its usage this year, given the current growth and interest from foreign investors. Johann Thor Jonsson, director of Data Center Iceland, a business organisation, says Iceland had all the 'ingredients' for a successful Bitcoin base.

Dr. Michel Aubertin: Mine Wastes Management @ RIME Part 1
Dr. Michel Aubertin is the Scientific Director of the Research Institute on Mines and Environment (RIME UQAT-Polytechnique) and a professor at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. Dr. Aubertin gives a keynote presentation on work at the Research Institute of Mines and Environment (RIME). This is Part 1 of the presentation. He introduces the principles of waste rock management, both open pit and underground. He also discusses the challenges of tailings after processing the ore. RIME has been dealing mainly with hard rock mines; the low concentration of minerals in the ore produces sizeable quantities of waste rock and tailings from Quebec mines. Dr. Aubertin emphasizes waste rock piles are not dumps; they are engineered structures. He discusses the knowledge gained in the twelve years that the Research Chair has existed at Polytechnique Montreal and UQAT, and explains the significance of the partnerships between the universities, government and industry companies such as Lamgold and Osisko. The benefits of the collaboration include such benefits as: the new lab facilities in both university locations, the 139 graduate students hired to do research, and the 120 academic papers published. Dr. Aubertin describes the details of several projects, including: improving surface disposal of tailings, optimizing surface disposal of waste rock, and water quality production - including mathematical modeling of the hydro-chemical processes. Dr. Michel Aubertin gave this keynote presentation at the Tailings and Mine Waste conference in Banff, Alberta on November 5, 2013.

2016, Industry Partnership, WestLand Resources, Inc., Amer. Mining Hall of Fame
The Mining Foundation of the Southwest was pleased to recognize WestLand Resources, Inc. with the 2016 Industry Partnership Award during the 34th annual American Mining Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony in Tucson on 3 December 2016. WestLand Resources, Inc. (WestLand) was started in February 1997 with a small office space in Tucson, Arizona, and three young professionals who aspired to provide superior environmental and engineering consulting services. From the start, the company culture was one of scientific integrity, technical excellence, and passion for the work. By the end of 1997, the company had added nine additional employees, and counted several major Arizona mining entities among their earliest clients. In 2001, WestLand merged with Whitman & Company, another local firm specializing in environmental permitting and compliance for the mining industry. Mining has been an integral component of WestLand from the earliest days of the business, and remains so today. Today, WestLand consists of over 120 employees and serves clients from offices in Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff, and project offices in Globe and Ft. Defiance. Several of WestLand’s Principals had longstanding experience in mining fields even prior to the existence of WestLand. President and CEO, Jim Tress received his first assignment for Phelps Dodge in 1986, and he obtained his first Clean Water Act Section 404 permit for the ASARCO Ray Mine in 1991. Jim’s career has spanned several decades and allowed him to spearhead the environmental permitting for numerous major expansion efforts at mining entities throughout the southwest. WestLand’s beloved Kathy Whitman (August 24, 1959 – November 26, 2012), founder of Whitman & Company, began her career in the mining and environmental industry at Bridger Coal Company in Rock Springs, Wyoming in the 1980’s, before moving to Globe, AZ, to work for Magma Copper Company doing environment compliance and permitting - a field in which she became acknowledged for her expertise and understanding of government permitting processes. Kathy later worked for Carlota Copper Company on her first greenfields project, before eventually starting Whitman & Company in 1997. Kathy Whitman and several employees joined WestLand in 2001, including Brian Lindenlaub, who later became a WestLand Principal and Environmental Sector Vice President. Kathy was an important part of the senior leadership team at WestLand, and a well-respected environmental professional in the mining industry, until her passing in 2012. WestLand has been responding to the engineering, environmental, and regulatory challenges facing mining entities and numerous other industries, including transportation, power, development and utilities, for nearly 20 years. The company has worked with the majority of the major hard rock mining entities in Arizona and New Mexico, as well as sites in Utah, California, Colorado, Nevada and Ohio. The company’s design, engineering, and regulatory permitting professionals have a long history of providing support and solutions for the complex environmental and engineering challenges associated with mining projects. WestLand brings technical expertise and value engineering principles to every project. Just as WestLand has played an important role in assisting mining companies with environmental compliance and engineering challenges, the mining industry has played a vital role in WestLand’s growth and evolution. The owners and staff of WestLand are proud of their history working with mining operations in the Southwest and look forward to a long and beneficial continuing partnership.
