JOINT VENTURE TO DEVELOP EMP PROTOCOLS

The Company is pleased to announce the establishment of a joint venture with Oppenheimer Enterprises LLC to develop EMP protocols. Dr. Les Oppenheimer had worked closely with Norman Haber during the initial development of EMP. He was the chief scientist instrumental in the development of the protocols presented in publication for The National Academy of Sciences Paper (vol.79 no.2, 1982) which presented Norman's Electromolecular Propulsion as a distinctly different process from it's classical counterparts. The Paper was sponsored by Nobel Prize recipient and noted biochemist and geneticist Rollin Hotchkiss. Among the Novel attributes of EMP is the speed of molecular separation unparalleled by current technologies. These EMP qualities remain to this day relevant in the separation sciences.

The purpose of the JV will be to develop "benign" reagents to be used in proteomics to separate clinically significant molecules within a few minutes. Having benign reagents will be advantageous in the handling and permitting commercialization of the process.Haber Inc. will have the patent rights to all technology developed and Oppenheimer Industries will be entitled to a percentage of the total profits derived thereof.

Work is currently being conducted at the Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey.

Suriname: 'Watershed' The West: Crime pays for environmental terrorists Brown Mountain

Scalians (Illegal miners)  sail in and out on the lake, on different rivers and to the annoyance of our neighbors even in French territory. Fish from streams and rivers are now full of mercury and a nature and health disaster looming for villagers in the gold mining areas and elsewhere. This has been the intention of the whole committee?

Small - Scale Mining and its Impacts on the Natural Environment: A Case of Yale, Datuku and Dig are Communities in the Talensi - Nabdam District of Northern Ghana

Recent literature reveals that the main impact of small scale mining on the environment include; water and land pollution (especially from mercury, cyanide arsenic and waste accumulation), deforestation and land degradation, health hazards, open pits and human displacement.

Our home and golden land

The effect is companies, governments and First Nations are left to look out for their own interests with little incentive — much less requirement — to consider how their needs fit into a broader range of uses for the land. “There is no reason why a proponent like Cliffs would have to look downstream of their project,” Chetkiewicz said: “there’s no process in the current land use planning to allow communities like Attawapiskat to have some kind of say in what’s happening in the Ring of Fire even though they live downstream and will be impacted” by potential waterborne pollutants like mercury.

4 small-scale miners killed in tunnel blast in Compostela Valley

According to DRH records, the four miners were working inside the shaft owned by a certain Josel Mamac when a powerful blast went off in a nearby tunnel, sending noxious fumes into their tunnel, suffocating them.
Police and local officials said they have not received confirmation of the fatal mining accident, however.
Hundreds of makeshift tunnels honeycomb the gold-rich Pamintaran, one of Compostela Valley’s known minerals-rich mountain villages where more than 50,000 people dig for gold for a living.
The area is about 100 kilometers south of the more popular Mt. Diwalwal, which holds one of Asia’s biggest gold mineral reserves.

Just Before Hosting Major U.N. Climate Talks, Peru Slashes Environmental Regulation

Even with regulations in place, illegal mining is a major environmental hazard in Peru.
“The illegal miners have pushed deep into the Amazon jungle to pan in rivers and creeks, most notably in the wildlife-rich Madre de Dios region,” said Juan José Córdova, leader of the energy sector at KPMG, Peru. “It is estimated that 30 to 40 metric tons of mercury are dumped into the environment annually and burned off after amalgamation — generally without even using rudimentary technology to protect workers’ health or capture waste or fumes.”
Liquid mercury is used to extract gold particles. The mercury can make its way into fish species that are consumed by humans and can lead to mercury poisoning. Deforestation, a major issue with illegal mining, is also detrimental to climate goals as forests are major carbon sinks.

China needs to get to grips with its gold mining pollution crisis

If you use mercury, you amalgamate the gold with the mercury and then burn it off, and so the mercury will deposit itself somewhere within the ecosystem. Mercury is what we call biopersistent – it gets eaten up by organisms and then stays in the environment for a very long time. And it’s a neurotoxin, so you don’t see the impact right away. It actually has a much more insidious impact over many years. Mercury pollution across China is widely documented.
With cyanide, it’s different. Cyanide has an immediate impact, but it’s not biopersistent. Cyanide can actually decompose in sunlight. So you can get a sudden fish kill from a cyanide spill but it doesn’t have the long-term persistent impact that mercury might have.

The toxic shimmer of gold

Industrywide, one of biggest environmental challenges is safely storing the cyanide solution in these ponds without accidental leakage, said Micheal George, a gold commodities specialist with United States Geological Survey (USGS). "Most of these liners are quite complex," said George. "But if your liner is compromised in some way -- well, communities are worried."

Hard Rock Mining Pollution

The hard rock mining industry is the single largest source of toxic waste and one of the most destructive industries in the country. Today's industrial-strength mining involves the blasting, excavating, and crushing of many thousands of acres of land and the use of huge quantities of toxic chemicals such as cyanide and sulfuric acid. The mines that produce our gold, silver, copper, and uranium are notorious for polluting adjacent streams, lakes, and groundwater with toxic by-products.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 40 percent of the watersheds in the western United States are contaminated by pollution from hard rock mines.

Does mining use mercury?

Mercury is still used to extract gold in the developing world despite safer alternatives and the elimination of mercury use by large-scale mining operations. It is used by artisanal and small-scale miners (ASM), often in unsafe and environmentally damaging ways.[1, p.13] The United Nations Industrial Development Organization estimates that 1,000 tons of mercury is released into the air, soil, and water each year by this sector.[4, p.9]

Mercury is used to purify gold from ore in a process called amalgamation. Miners and their families often inhale toxic mercury vapors through this process, and mercury can pollute homes and communities.[5] It can also contaminate the land and water where gold processing occurs.

Amazon Indians join forces to reject 'devastating' mining - 92% of indigenous women in the region has levels of mercury contamination That exceeded the internationally accepted limit.

The Yanomami and the Yekuana tribes continued to see Their rivers polluted with the miners' Mercury Contaminates All which drinking water and fish, and many communities have been devastated by diseases and prostitution introduced by the miners.

Research by Venezuelan scientists in 2013 Showed That 92% of indigenous women in the region had levels of mercury contamination That exceeded the internationally accepted limit.

The Uncontacted Yanomami, some of the most vulnerable people on the planet, stand to lose the most. Contact with the miners could wipe them out.

New Peru law weakens environmental safeguards

Dozens of international groups, the United Nations, and even Peru's own citizen ombudsman are objecting to a new law that weakens environmental protections in the Andean nation even as it prepares to host international climate-control talks this year.

Quicksilver for Quick Gold

When we think of gold mining, we probably envision a pickax striking a glittering vein in ore or gold flakes glinting through river sediment. We’re unlikely to have even heard about the 15 million men, women, and children poisoning themselves to produce 30 percent of the world’s mined gold. Although the mercury, or quicksilver, used in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) causes neurological damage and widespread pollution, miners in developing countries continue to use it—and Kristin Sippl (GRS’16) is finding out why and researching how to give these miners the information necessary to decide on a less dangerous method.
