As an employer, every mining operation, large or small, is responsible for protecting the safety and health of its employees. Safety is also good business. An effective safety and health program can save $4 to $6 for every $1 invested. It’s the right thing to do, and doing it right pays off in lower costs, increased productivity, and higher employee morale.
Excerpts from California Mining Journal, our original title, published 50 years ago this month.
The favorable geology of the northeastern and central parts of the Seven Troughs Range are the parts most interesting to prospectors. They are underlain by a thick sequence of Tertiary volcanic rocks, mostly rhyolites and andesites.
Geologists have long noted the similarities of certain types of mineral deposits all across the globe. Similar minerals, similar country rocks, and similar grades of mineralization may occur in several different parts of the world.
ICMJ has reviewed the U.S. DOI, BLM, 516 page Environmental Impact Statement on proposed 43 CFR 3809...and can only conclude that the proposed action amounts to several more nails in mining's coffin.
