The Colegio Don Bosco De Calama recently graduated its first class of 141 students in December.
The school, opened in 2016, educates middle and high school students, including indigenous children who live in the Province of El Loa near the El Abra mining operations. Students focus on technical studies in mining and electrical and mechanical skills. Enrollment is free to the more than 750 students who currently attend the school.
Freeport-McMoRan and Minera El Abra, along with Codelco and Antofogasta Minerals, financially contribute to the vocational school.
PT Borneo Alumina Indonesia appoints Black & Veatch as a technical consultant to lead alumina refinery project
JAKARTA, Indonesia, October 4, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Creating mining and minerals processing infrastructure to increase Indonesia’s mineral value while strengthening downstream processing capabilities has been at the core of the Indonesian mining authority and mineral export laws since 2009.
As part of our commitment to improving water quality in BC’s Elk Valley region, a number of research projects are underway to prevent nitrate from entering the environment.
One source of nitrates is from explosives that interact with water during the blasting process. When this occurs nitrates can leach out of blastholes and enter the natural environment. To stop this from occurring plastic liners are used to prevent explosive materials from coming into contact with water.
Nuestro enfoque de la gestión del agua se basa en tres elementos clave: proteger la calidad del agua, mejorar la eficiencia en el uso del agua y participar de forma colaborativa en nuestras cuencas.
Creando Agua Dulce en el Desierto de Atacama de Chile
La planta de desalinización de nuestro proyecto Quebrada Blanca Fase 2 será el primer uso a gran escala de agua de mar desalinizada para la minería en la región de Tarapacá en Chile, en vez del agua dulce. A plena capacidad, esta purificará aproximadamente 1,300 litros por segundo.
Our approach to water stewardship is based on three key elements: protecting water quality, improving water use efficiency and engaging collaboratively within our watersheds. Check out some of the projects our team is working on to make water stewardship a top priority.
Creating Fresh Water in the Atacama Desert of Chile
We are proud to announce our US$1million investment in Acoustic Zoom, an advanced geophysics company specializing in innovative seismic solutions. Acoustic Zoom was awarded the top prize at #DisruptMining 2018, after placing as a semi-finalist in #DisruptMining 2017.
Gasification plant in Edwardsport, Ind., helps drive economy
Rising 18 stories above the fields in rural Indiana, Duke Energy’s Edwardsport power plant is a technological marvel and among the cleanest coal-fired power plants in the world.
Edwardsport Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) station in Knox County, Ind., produced a record 3.9 million megawatt-hours of energy in 2017, a 28 percent improvement over its previous record.
This year for World Water Day we decided to get creative and introduce you to a story about water! Days of Our Droplets combines an explanation of where water comes from and where it goes at a mine site with a story about some of the unfortunate potential consequences of poor water management that you may have heard about in the news. We then go on to show how good water stewardship combined with innovative water-saving technology helps solve these problems in our industry.
After years of relying on a manual paper-based system and radio communications to relay vital information to underground equipment operators, Ontario’s Musselwhite mine recently implemented a digital fleet management system for underground vehicle dispatch that helped improve productivity and enhanced safety.
