Oh yeah yeah
Best be getting paid for the 20 mins down.
I worked as a driller @ Kidd Creek mine in Ontario Canada. Its +9600' and the shaft bottom is approx 9880'. Its the deepest mine that I've worked in and I've been in a lot of em. Nice video. Thanks!!
I did a shutdown for rio tinto out in Salt Lake City UT 😎pretty to hear about this
Geez someone get me this job I always wanted this job since young I also like oil digging anyone? I am 32 I am getting old lol give me that wish just once in my life get me out of hm this hell hole in nyc
Creighton mine Sudbury has a shaft depth of 7080 feet .... one continuous run ... kid creek Timmins is 10000'.... heat is a huge factor . Ridiculous hot down there
Block caving certainly isn't new and never before tried!!! Blatant lies. Butte, Mt.....once the world's largest copper mine and america's most notorious boom town.......used block caving process over a hundred years ago.........
For years local businesses have helped resolution to open their underground mining facilities. Local businesses from Globe, Miami, Superior, San Carlos. Randy Seppala allowed other companies from other areas to work at resolution underground projects.
You forgot us Randy Seppala, shall locals write letters to our new Senator?
1:48 Ground water leaking in?
Single lift shaft deepest in the western hemisphere, Kirkland Lake Ontario 7325 ft Timmins Ontario Kidd mine 9300 ft the deepest copper mine in the world.
never been done before but there is a permit for that. sounds crooked
XD so these are logical again in what way are we just trying to outbreed china xD
Just goes to show how valuable copper is to a modern industrial economy. This has always been a relatively expensive metal but in recent years the price has skyrocketed and it's reflected in the price you pay for home electric wiring. Decades ago, things as mundane as GUTTERS and DOWNSPOUTS were made of this because it was resistant to corrosion and easy to form. Sheets of it were used as roof flashing around chimneys and vent pipes. Your whole house had copper pipe including the big drain lines; it was easy to cut and could be joined with solder rather than the threaded joints required on "iron" [actually steel] pipe. Now all that's been replaced with PVC.
2:40 tf this nigga doin lmao pointless asf
That's a SHAFT not a vertical tunnel, btw, I used to muck on the 9500' at Kidd Creek in Timmins, ON.
We need more gender equality in copper mining.
Six billon investment without a product, undermine the ore and let it cave in upon itself, creating a huge cavity, it doesn't sound logical. Could this create a potential sink hole later? Temperature, water, cave in, deep shafts and no other way to escape,,, the hazard is extremely high for disaster with a debt to repay that is enormous! If it's successful, with no further problem of geological development, it will be an amazing engineering feat for sure.
Where the fuck are the woman I no we the people demand equality
What if the crust collapses one day cos of the sheer amount of mines we've created with drills, explosions, what if the mine effect becomes the new trend instead of global warming? What if when the crust crumples, we fall on our asses touching the hot magma core? What if after I die, just to find out there's no afterlife and I don't get rewarded for being nice to ppl

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
