Around 60% of it comes from just one country, DR Congo – and most of the metal is exported to China. But there are ethical concerns: Amnesty International says children and adults are mining cobalt in extremely hazardous conditions. Meanwhile, around a quarter of the cobalt extracted in DR Congo is sold through the black market. This report is from our France 2 colleagues, with Erin Ogunkeye.

Mineral Rape in the DRC
 
15:56
Grand Theft Congo (2005): The major problem facing Africa is corruption and control of resources. In the DRC, the military is stealing minerals to sell to Western companies. For downloads and more information visit http://www.journeyman.tv/18683/short-films/grand-theft-congo.html At a remote mine in central DRC, workers with torches and pick axes hack at the ruddy earth. They are mining cassiterite, a mineral vital in the production of laptops and mobile phones. But dispersed among the miners are Congolese Government troops -- in plain clothes for the camera -- literally forcing most workers to work at gunpoint. 'The soldiers always steal everything. They even come to shoot people down the mineshafts,' complains Regina Maponda. Western greed for cassiterite is fuelling the boom -- at an airfield near the mine, soldiers jealously guard their loot as it makes it way to Japan and the West. Conflict mining is a curse, and it is difficult to see what the G8 leaders can do.

Congo, My Precious. The Curse of the coltan mines in Congo
 
52:01
Watch more https://rtd.rt.com/tags/illegal-mining/ The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others. Congo has copious deposits of raw materials that are in high demand internationally but remains one of the poorest countries in the world. From colonisation, with the horrors of slavery and other atrocities, to a turbulent and equally brutal present in which militant groups control the mines, Congo’s richness in natural resources has brought nothing but misery. Referred to as “conflict minerals”, these riches leave only a trail of death, destruction and poverty. Under Belgian rule, Congolese labourers were often required to meet quotas when mining different minerals. Failure could mean punishment by having a hand cut off with a machete. The country gained independence in 1960, but that didn’t put a stop to slave and child labour or to crimes being committed to extract and exploit the minerals. Warring militant fractions from inside the country and beyond seized control of mines for their own benefit while terrorising local populations. For our translator, Bernard Kalume Buleri, his country’s history of turmoil is very personal; like most Congolese people, he and his family fell victim to the unending mineral based power struggle. Born in the year of his country’s independence, he has lived through war and seen his homeland torn apart by violent looting and greed. His story is a damning testament, illustrating how nature’s bounty, instead of being a blessing, becomes a deadly curse.

Copper Production in Kitwe Zambia 2011a
 
13:31
Mopani Copper Mines Mopani Copper Mines Plc (Mopani) is a joint venture company based in Kitwe as 95% of its operations are located there, comprising Glencore International AG (73.1%), First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (16.9%) and Zambian Consolidated Copper Mines Limited (10%). Mopani operates the Mufulira mine, smelter, concentrator and copper refinery and the Nkana mine, concentrator and cobalt plant. MCM produced 134,800 tons of copper and 2,040 tons of cobalt in 2003. MCM is investing in a number of oxide copper projects at several of its properties, including an in-situ leaching project at Mufulira and heap leaching at Nkana, and has achieved significant production increases at its underground mining operations in Kitwe and Mufulira. Copper production from internal sources was supplemented by the purchase of some 18,000 tons of copper in high-grade oxide concentrate bought from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Nkana Mine Nkana mine is one of the largest in Africa, a copper mine located 1 km south-west of Kitwe. The mine is underground as well as open pit and is in operation since 1932 and has produced 6,000,000 tons of copper so far. Its reserves underground include 69,000,000 tons of grading, 16,000,000 tons of copper, and 98,000 tons of cobalt. Its resources include 126,000,000 tons of grading, 43,000,000 tons of copper, and 300,000 tons of cobalt. Copper and cobalt mineralisation occur within the ore shale. Copper mineralisation in the deposits changes from mostly chalcopyrite in the South Orebody, to chalcopyrite-bornite in the Central area and to bornite-chalcopyrite at Mindola. Cobalt occurs as carrollite and cobaltiferous pyrite in approximately equal proportions. The mine produces copper and cobalt from three sources: Mindola Shaft, Central Shaft and South Orebody Shaft. Vertical crater retreat is the predominant mining method while sublevel open-stopping and sublevel caving methods are also used. Other metallurgical facilities, under a management contract by an affiliate of the Anglo American Group, include the Nkana smelter (not owned by Mopani), acid plant (not owned by Mopani) and copper refinery (not owned by Mopani). There is extensive mine tailings around this mine. Nkana Concentrator Nkana Concentrator of Mopani mines, located in Kitwe, treats copper-cobalt sulphide ore using a bulk flotation and segregation flotation flowsheet to produce separate copper and cobalt concentrates. Nkana Concentrator is the most important mineral processing unit of Mopani, as it contributes about 65% of cobalt concentrates treated at the Nkana and Chambeshi Cobalt plants to produce high purity cobalt metal. Konkola Copper Mine Konkola Copper Mine (KCM) is the largest copper mining company in the country. Although based in Chingola, 15% of its operations—namely Nkana Refinery, Nkana Acid Plants and Nkana Smelter (the largest smelter in the nation) -- are located in Kitwe. The Nkana Smelter is the largest primary copper production plant in Zambia. The plant treats concentrates mainly from Nkana, Nchanga, and Konkola mines, which are wholly owned by KCM to produce up to 150,000 tons of new copper. Nkana Smelter The smelter produces high grade anodes, which are electrolytically refined. Sulphur dioxide gas produced by the converters is converted into sulphuric acid which is then used at the Tailings Leach Plant in Nchanga for recovering oxide copper. The smelter also produces discard slag from the reverbs that is rich in cobalt which is stored for future reclamation. This smelter was part of the Konkola Copper Mine's operation at privatisation and has subsequently closed. Nkana Refinery The Nkana Copper Refinery produces electrolytically refined copper in the form of cathodes. The copper meets the LME premium quality grade. The tankhouse has a capacity of about 180,000 tons of finished copper per annum. Nkana Acid Plants There are two single contact sulphuric acid plants at Smelterco, namely the No.3 and No.4 plants. No.3, the largest, is still operational. The plant has a design capacity of 1,050 tons of acid per day. FROM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining_in_Zambia

+++ MALAQUITA +++ La malaquita es un mineral del grupo V (carbonatos) según la clasificación de Strunz, de fórmula química Cu2CO3(OH)2 (Dihidroxido de carbonato de cobre (II)). Posee un 57,0% de cobre. Su nombre viene del griego malaqh, que significa ‘malva’, en alusión a su color verde.​ En la antigüedad era usada como colorante, pero hoy en día su uso es más bien como piedra semipreciosa. También se la usa como mena para la extracción de cobre. Los yacimientos más importantes de este mineral están en Colombia, República Democrática del Congo, Sudáfrica, Zimbabue, Rusia, Namibia, Hungría, Estados Unidos y China . El color malaquita tiene como referente tanto la piedra malaquita como el colorante verde malaquita, por lo que su coloración puede variar entre el verde algo azulado como el que se muestra aquí abajo, hasta un verde azulado similar al color esmeralda. --- ENGLISH --- Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, with the formula Cu2CO3(OH)2. This opaque, green banded mineral crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system, and most often forms botryoidal, fibrous, or stalagmitic masses, in fractures and spaces, deep underground, where the water table and hydrothermal fluids provide the means for chemical precipitation. Individual crystals are rare but do occur as slender to acicular prisms. Pseudomorphs after more tabular or blocky azurite crystals also occur. The stone's name derives (via Latin: molochītis, Middle French: melochite, and Middle English melochites) from Greek Μολοχίτης λίθος molochitis lithos, "mallow-green stone", from μολόχη molōchē, variant of μαλάχη malāchē, "mallow". The mineral was given this name due to its resemblance to the leaves of the mallow plant. Malachite was extensively mined at the Great Orme mines in Britain 3,800 years ago using stone and bone tools. Archaeological evidence indicates that mining activity ended around 600 B.C.E with up to 1,760 tonnes of copper being produced from the mined Malachite. Archaeological evidence indicates that the mineral has been mined and smelted to obtain copper at Timna Valley in Israel for over 3,000 years. Since then, malachite has been used as both an ornamental stone and as a gemstone. In ancient Egypt the colour green (wadj) was associated with death and the power of resurrection as well as new life and fertility. Ancient Egyptians believed that the afterlife contained an eternal paradise which resembled their lives but with no pain or suffering, and referred to this place as the ‘Field of Malachite’. Malachite was used as a mineral pigment in green paints from antiquity until about 1800. The pigment is moderately lightfast, very sensitive to acids, and varying in color. This natural form of green pigment has been replaced by its synthetic form, verditer, among other synthetic greens. Malachite is also used for decorative purposes, such as in the Malachite Room in the Hermitage Museum, which features a huge malachite vase, and the Malachite Room in Castillo de Chapultepec in Mexico City. " The Tazza", a large malachite vase, one of the largest pieces of malachite in North America and a gift from Tsar Nicholas II, stands as the focal point in the centre of the room of Linda Hall Library. Malachite has also been used on the base of the FIFA World Cup Trophy. A 17th-century Spanish superstition held that having a child wear a lozenge of malachite would help them sleep, and keep evil spirits at bay. Malachite often results from the weathering of copper ores, and is often found together with azurite (Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2), goethite, and calcite. Except for its vibrant green color, the properties of malachite are similar to those of azurite and aggregates of the two minerals occur frequently. Malachite is more common than azurite and is typically associated with copper deposits around limestones, the source of the carbonate. Large quantities of malachite have been mined in the Urals, Russia. Ural malachite is not being mined at present, but G.N Vertushkova reports the possible discovery of new deposits of malachite in the Urals. It is found worldwide including in the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Gabon; Zambia; Tsumeb, Namibia; Mexico; Broken Hill, New South Wales; Lyon, France; Timna Valley, Israel; and the Southwestern United States, most notably in Arizona. #MALAQUITA #malachite #congominerals #cobre #secundario

Malachite was used as a mineral pigment in green paints from antiquity until about 1800. The pigment is moderately lightfast, very sensitive to acids, and varying in color. This natural form of green pigment has been replaced by its synthetic form, verditer, among other synthetic greens. Malachite is also used for decorative purposes, such as in the Malachite Room in the Hermitage Museum, which features a huge malachite vase, and the Malachite Room in Castillo de Chapultepec in Mexico City. " The Tazza", a large malachite vase, one of the largest pieces of malachite in North America and a gift from Tsar Nicholas II, stands as the focal point in the centre of the room of Linda Hall Library. Malachite has also been used on the base of the FIFA World Cup Trophy. A 17th-century Spanish superstition held that having a child wear a lozenge of malachite would help them sleep, and keep evil spirits at bay. Malachite often results from the weathering of copper ores, and is often found together with azurite (Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2), goethite, and calcite. Except for its vibrant green color, the properties of malachite are similar to those of azurite and aggregates of the two minerals occur frequently. Malachite is more common than azurite and is typically associated with copper deposits around limestones, the source of the carbonate. Large quantities of malachite have been mined in the Urals, Russia. Ural malachite is not being mined at present, but G.N Vertushkova reports the possible discovery of new deposits of malachite in the Urals. It is found worldwide including in the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Gabon; Zambia; Tsumeb, Namibia; Mexico; Broken Hill, New South Wales; Lyon, France; Timna Valley, Israel; and the Southwestern United States, most notably in Arizona. #MALAQUITA #malachite #congominerals #cobre #secundario

İnsanoğlunun degerli taşlara olan sevgisi yüzünden bügün en değerli taşımız elmas olarak seçilmiştir.Çünkü çok azdır.Bu listemizde öyle güzel taşlar varki belki elmastan bile güzel ama elmas kadar az olmadıkları için fiyatları farklılık gösteriyor.Bize destek vermek için videoya like atıp kanalımıza abone olabilirsiniz. 10 - Malahit Bazik bakır karbonattan müteşekkil, parlak yeşil bir mineraldir. Çok bulunan bir bakır cevheridir. Güney Avustralya, Güney Batı Afrika'da ve Anadolu'da çeşitli yerlerde bulunur.Ancak kristalleri az bulunur. İğne ve kıl gibi kristaller, bir arada, demete benzer şekildedir. 9 - Rodokrozit Amerika, Güney Afrika, Meksika, İspanya, Arjantin ve Romanya gibi ülkelerde bulunan rodokrozit taşı her kültürde farklı isimlerle anılmaktadır. İnka kırmızısı, kalbin taşı ya da aşkın taşı olarak isimlendirilen bu taş türü açık ve koyu gül rengine sahiptir. Pek çok mitolojide kullanılmakta olan bu taş türü adından da anlaşılacağı gibi kişinin aşk hayatında etkili olduğuna dair bir inanış bulunmaktadır. 8 - Escolecita İsminin birçok özelliği vardır.Ama en çok bilinen özelliği ise ateşin taşıdır. Çünkü en ufak kıvılcımı bile devasa yangılar oluyormuş gibi gösterebilme özelliğine sahiptir. Çok mugazzam bir taştır.Normalda bakıldığında tuz minareline çok benzemektedir.Ama tuzla hiçbir bağlantısı yoktur.1813 yılında Baden'de Kaiserstuhl'de keşfedilmiş ve Alman maden bilimcileri AF Gehlen ve JN von Fuchs tarafından tanımlanmıştır. 7 - Azurit Bir çeşit bakır cevheridir. Kristal yapısı birbirine dik ama farklı uzunlukta olan eksenlerden oluşur. Çoğunlukla malahit ile birlikte bakır yataklarında bulunur.Farklı yapılardan oluşabilir. Prizmatik olabileceği gibi, şekilsiz veya yumru biçiminde olanları da vardır. 6 - Krokoit - Crocoíta Kurşun kromat mineralidir. Genellikle, kırmızı, kırmızı-turuncu ve bazen sarı renktedir. Tanzanya, Avusturalya ve Rusya’ da Ural dağlarından çıkmaktadır.Sanatçılar, yazarlar ve müzisyenler için yaratıcılığı güçlendirdiği, cesaret ve tutku verdiği DÜŞÜNÜLEN mistik bir taştır. 1766 YILINDA ural dağlarında keşfedilmiştir. 5 - Titanyum Kuvars Kuvars mineralinin silikon dioksit kaplanmış halidir, bu sebeple titanyum kuvars adını almıştır. Sonuç olarak metafiziksel kaynağa göre, birçok rengi yansıtan titanyum kuvars, kuvarstan farklı olarak önemli bir şekilde enerji yayar. Kaplanmasının nedeni kristal kuvarsın verdiği enerjinin frekansını yükseltmektir.Bu özel kuvars taş doğaga çok uzun yıllar içerisinde oluşmaktadır. 4 - Opal Opal, silis grubundan inorganik madde. Silisin hidratlı ve jelatinli bütün çeşitlerini kapsar. Opal bir koloittir; bileşiminde %3 ile %13 su bulunur.Görünümü yağsı veya camsıdır, kırık yüzeyleri kavkıya benzer. Birçok çeşidi vardır, bunlar arasında en tanınmışı asil opaldır. 3 - Uvarovit Yapısı, kalsiyum ve krom ağırlıklıdır.Görünümü, cam parlaklığındadır. 1832 yılında Germain Henri Hess tarafından keşfedilmiştir. Devlet adamı ve taş koleksiyoncusu Sergei Semenovitch Uvarov taşa ismini vermiştir.Garnet mineral grubunun nadir bulunan bir üyesidir. Bir yeşil garnet türüdür. Güzel bir zümrüt yeşili rengindedir. . 2 - Turmalin Turmalin, granit oluşumlarında sık rastlanan bir mineraldir. Yarı değerli taş olarak takılarda kullanılır. Turmalin kristalleri siyah, kahverengi, kırmızı, pembe, mavi, yeşil veya sarı renkli olur. 1 - Bizmut Olağanüstü estetik görünümü, şaşırtıcı özellikleri bizmutu elementler arasında farklı bir konuma getiriyor. Ömrünü duyanlar şaşkınlığını gizleyemiyor.Bizmutun antik çağda Asya, Mısır, Roma ve Çin’de kullanıldığına dair bazı bilgiler var.

PROCESSING COPPER ORE IN  KITWE ZAMBIA
 
07:40
Mopani Copper Mines Mopani Copper Mines Plc (Mopani) is a joint venture company based in Kitwe as 95% of its operations are located there, comprising Glencore International AG (73.1%), First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (16.9%) and Zambian Consolidated Copper Mines Limited (10%). Mopani operates the Mufulira mine, smelter, concentrator and copper refinery and the Nkana mine, concentrator and cobalt plant. MCM produced 134,800 tons of copper and 2,040 tons of cobalt in 2003. MCM is investing in a number of oxide copper projects at several of its properties, including an in-situ leaching project at Mufulira and heap leaching at Nkana, and has achieved significant production increases at its underground mining operations in Kitwe and Mufulira. Copper production from internal sources was supplemented by the purchase of some 18,000 tons of copper in high-grade oxide concentrate bought from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Nkana Mine Nkana mine is one of the largest in Africa, a copper mine located 1 km south-west of Kitwe. The mine is underground as well as open pit and is in operation since 1932 and has produced 6,000,000 tons of copper so far. Its reserves underground include 69,000,000 tons of grading, 16,000,000 tons of copper, and 98,000 tons of cobalt. Its resources include 126,000,000 tons of grading, 43,000,000 tons of copper, and 300,000 tons of cobalt. Copper and cobalt mineralisation occur within the ore shale. Copper mineralisation in the deposits changes from mostly chalcopyrite in the South Orebody, to chalcopyrite-bornite in the Central area and to bornite-chalcopyrite at Mindola. Cobalt occurs as carrollite and cobaltiferous pyrite in approximately equal proportions. The mine produces copper and cobalt from three sources: Mindola Shaft, Central Shaft and South Orebody Shaft. Vertical crater retreat is the predominant mining method while sublevel open-stopping and sublevel caving methods are also used. Other metallurgical facilities, under a management contract by an affiliate of the Anglo American Group, include the Nkana smelter (not owned by Mopani), acid plant (not owned by Mopani) and copper refinery (not owned by Mopani). There is extensive mine tailings around this mine. Nkana Concentrator Nkana Concentrator of Mopani mines, located in Kitwe, treats copper-cobalt sulphide ore using a bulk flotation and segregation flotation flowsheet to produce separate copper and cobalt concentrates. Nkana Concentrator is the most important mineral processing unit of Mopani, as it contributes about 65% of cobalt concentrates treated at the Nkana and Chambeshi Cobalt plants to produce high purity cobalt metal. Konkola Copper Mine Konkola Copper Mine (KCM) is the largest copper mining company in the country. Although based in Chingola, 15% of its operations—namely Nkana Refinery, Nkana Acid Plants and Nkana Smelter (the largest smelter in the nation) -- are located in Kitwe. The Nkana Smelter is the largest primary copper production plant in Zambia. The plant treats concentrates mainly from Nkana, Nchanga, and Konkola mines, which are wholly owned by KCM to produce up to 150,000 tons of new copper. Nkana Smelter The smelter produces high grade anodes, which are electrolytically refined. Sulphur dioxide gas produced by the converters is converted into sulphuric acid which is then used at the Tailings Leach Plant in Nchanga for recovering oxide copper. The smelter also produces discard slag from the reverbs that is rich in cobalt which is stored for future reclamation. This smelter was part of the Konkola Copper Mine's operation at privatisation and has subsequently closed. Nkana Refinery The Nkana Copper Refinery produces electrolytically refined copper in the form of cathodes. The copper meets the LME premium quality grade. The tankhouse has a capacity of about 180,000 tons of finished copper per annum. Nkana Acid Plants There are two single contact sulphuric acid plants at Smelterco, namely the No.3 and No.4 plants. No.3, the largest, is still operational. The plant has a design capacity of 1,050 tons of acid per day. FROM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining_in_Zambia
