  • Nomads: Salt Caravans in the Niger (Accessible Preview)

    Situated near an oasis in Niger's Ayar Mountains, the remote settlement of Timia is home to small-scale wheat growers. Once a year, after the harvest is done, members of the Kel Ewen clan federation—a subgroup of the Tuareg nomads—will venture into the merciless Ténéré desert to trade their wares. Almost 600 kilometers lie between the paradise-like gardens of Timia and the village of Bilma, which produces salt from evaporation ponds. Bilma is, traditionally, one of the last stops on the age-old trans-Saharan trade route, and its salt is widely recognized as a trading article for grain and all manner of goods. This program follows a camel caravan as it makes its way along the route, taking on salt in Bilma, then heading further southward to Nigeria. Producer/Distributor: FILMS MEDIA GROUP...

  • THE PETRIFIED RIVER URANIUM MINING IN THE WESTERN USA 75674

    Made in 1957 by Union Carbide & Carbon company, PETRIFIED RIVER describes the modern romance of the present-day West in the search for uranium. It shows modern uranium prospecting, including prospecting by airplane, as well as mining in the Colorado Plateau. It also discusses the uses of radioactive isotopes at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Uranium is a chemical element with symbol U and atomic number 92. It is a silvery-white metal in the actinide series of the periodic table. A uranium atom has 92 protons and 92 electrons, of which 6 are valence electrons. Uranium is weakly radioactive because all its isotopes are unstable (with half-lives of the 6 naturally known isotopes, uranium-233 to uranium-238, varying between 69 years and 4.5 billion years). The most common isotopes of urani...

    LEAD IN : The recent conflict in Mali did not slow the pace of development in the capital, Bamako. As the city expands, the demand for building materials is growing, and this is having consequences on the environment. The mighty Niger river has traditionally provided a livelihood for the people that live along its banks. Now the need for sand from the river is threatening the traditional industries of fishing and oil. Some fear the exploitation of the river bed has consequences for the delicate equilibrium of the river. But for the sand divers that plunder the river banks, the rewards are rich.

WE DO NOT OWN THE MATERIAL EXCLUSIVELY, BUT HAVE A LICENSE CONTRACT FOR INTERNET STREAMING. If unavailable in your territory, or if you are interested in other license requests (feature movie, television, documentary, commercial...), please contact Javafilms: contact@javafilms.fr Story The African continent is rapidly developing itself economically. The only bottleneck in this process are readily available resources. Besides money these mainly consist of poor infrastructure and availability of energy, especially electricity. Economically booming countries like for example Uganda still have a lot to gain when a steady supply of power is provided. Nowadays in Uganda the power plants can only cater for roughly 30% of the countries demand and even new hydraulic power projects in the Nile will not solve this problem. Nuclear power therefor seems the most cost effective solution for most of the African nations including Uganda. Western companies such as the French Areva fiercely lobby for more power plants on the continent. But is Atomic Energy the best solution for unstable regimes? And what does Atomic Energy and the mining of uranium mean for the wellbeing and safety of the local population and the environment? Social Interest Ever since the first nuclear reactor was build in Africa in Congo in 1958 there have been safety concerns, cause within the whole process of the production of nuclear energy a lot of things can go wrong, willingly and unwillingly, with possible devastating consequences for people and environment. For instance in 2007 the head of the Congolese research institute was arrested for illegally selling nuclear fuel rods. Also in Niger the highway where the mined uranium is transported on runs through rebel territory associated with Al-Qaida. The war in neighbouring Mali makes this transport even more risky. Besides the risks of fuel rods ending up in the wrong hands the mining of uranium itself poses danger to people and environment as well. Legal and illegal mining operations destroy ecosystems and leave the miners with radiation poisoning . Historical and Political Relevance Nuclear power, the right to enrich uranium and develop the technology to exploit its energy, has always been a difficult point in international politics. In the Cold War the threat mainly came from the war talk and power displays of archenemies the United States and the Soviet Union which both had a gigantic nuclear arsenal. As the cold war ended the threat of a nuclear war declined. However the nuclear disaster in a power plant in Chernobyl a few years earlier proved that the benefits of nuclear power also pose a big potential threat in case of incidents. However, this incident did not stop more countries from starting a nuclear program with a wide range of experiments While in the last decade the interest of the West in Nuclear power seems to decline some new players on the nuclear market, with questionable regimes like Iran and North Korea , are causing much international debate about the right to develop nuclear power. The rapidly developing African continent is in serious need of energy and has always been rich in raw resources to produce energy and is now slowly developing the knowledge to exploit them. The African continent may well be on the verge of a nuclear revolution so the political discussion about the right to use nuclear energy is more relevant than ever. Because not only questionable regimes can pose a potential threat, also war and especially terrorism are extremely dangerous, since it takes a single rocket fired by a single person to blow up a nuclear power plant.

Made in 1957 by Union Carbide & Carbon company, PETRIFIED RIVER describes the modern romance of the present-day West in the search for uranium. It shows modern uranium prospecting, including prospecting by airplane, as well as mining in the Colorado Plateau. It also discusses the uses of radioactive isotopes at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Uranium is a chemical element with symbol U and atomic number 92. It is a silvery-white metal in the actinide series of the periodic table. A uranium atom has 92 protons and 92 electrons, of which 6 are valence electrons. Uranium is weakly radioactive because all its isotopes are unstable (with half-lives of the 6 naturally known isotopes, uranium-233 to uranium-238, varying between 69 years and 4.5 billion years). The most common isotopes of uranium are uranium-238 (which has 146 neutrons and accounts for almost 99.3% of the uranium found in nature) and uranium-235 (which has 143 neutrons, accounting for 0.7% of the element found naturally). Uranium has the second highest atomic weight of the primordially occurring elements, lighter only than plutonium. Its density is about 70% higher than that of lead, but slightly lower than that of gold or tungsten. It occurs naturally in low concentrations of a few parts per million in soil, rock and water, and is commercially extracted from uranium-bearing minerals such as uraninite. In nature, uranium is found as uranium-238 (99.2739–99.2752%), uranium-235 (0.7198–0.7202%), and a very small amount of uranium-234 (0.0050–0.0059%). Uranium decays slowly by emitting an alpha particle. The half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.47 billion years and that of uranium-235 is 704 million years,making them useful in dating the age of the Earth. Many contemporary uses of uranium exploit its unique nuclear properties. Uranium-235 has the distinction of being the only naturally occurring fissile isotope. Uranium-238 is fissionable by fast neutrons, and is fertile, meaning it can be transmuted to fissile plutonium-239 in a nuclear reactor. Another fissile isotope, uranium-233, can be produced from natural thorium and is also important in nuclear technology. While uranium-238 has a small probability for spontaneous fission or even induced fission with fast neutrons, uranium-235 and to a lesser degree uranium-233 have a much higher fission cross-section for slow neutrons. In sufficient concentration, these isotopes maintain a sustained nuclear chain reaction. This generates the heat in nuclear power reactors, and produces the fissile material for nuclear weapons. Depleted uranium (238U) is used in kinetic energy penetrators and armor plating. Uranium is used as a colorant in uranium glass producing orange-red to lemon yellow hues. It was also used for tinting and shading in early photography. The 1789 discovery of uranium in the mineral pitchblende is credited to Martin Heinrich Klaproth, who named the new element after the planet Uranus. Eugène-Melchior Péligot was the first person to isolate the metal and its radioactive properties were discovered in 1896 by Henri Becquerel. Research by Otto Hahn, Lise Meitner, Enrico Fermi and others, such as J. Robert Oppenheimer starting in 1934 led to its use as a fuel in the nuclear power industry and in Little Boy, the first nuclear weapon used in war. An ensuing arms race during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union produced tens of thousands of nuclear weapons that used uranium metal and uranium-derived plutonium-239. The security of those weapons and their fissile material following the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 is an ongoing concern for public health and safety.

Arlit was attacked by militants three years ago and four hostages -- three French nationals among them -- are still being held.Asked if he could confirm that French Special Forces are now guarding the uranium mine, President Issoufou told channel TV5: "Absolutely I can confirm." Niger's uranium mines are a major source of raw material for French nuclear power plants, so observers wonder if energy resources are a factor in the West's increased interest in the African continent. For more on that, RT talks to the director of studies at the Institute of democracy and cooperation in Paris, John Laughland. http://LeakSource.wordpress.com http://twitter.com/LeakSourceNews

March 26, 2018 – “I think what you see now is there were a lot of pressures on the top and each year we go past one of those pressures come off. I think the problem we have had is they have just taken longer for them all to add up. If you look at what UXC Consulting is saying they are looking at a deficit this year.” states Daniel Major, CEO of GoviEx Uranium Inc. (TSXV: GXU | OTCQB: GVXXF), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Peter Clausi.  Peter Clausi: GoviEx trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange, symbol GXU. You have uranium projects in Africa. Daniel Major: Yes that is absolutely correct. We have got projects in Niger, Zambia and Mali. Peter Clausi: What stage is each one of them at? Daniel Major: The primary one is Niger. It is Madaouela. It is fully permitted, environmental permits, mining permits. We are working on finalizing the feasibility study for that. We are already working on the debt structuring. We have got expressions of interest from two ECAs and five banks to cover our full debt, which is two-thirds of our total capital. We are working on optimizing that project still, bringing the OPEX down, bringing the CAPEX down while the market is quiet. In Zambia we picked up two projects. We have merged them together. Got 140 kilometers of strike length already permitted by merging them together; fantastic economies of scale. Both of those projects will produce over 2½ million pounds per annum. Peter Clausi: Where will you mill it? Daniel Major: We will do the processing on site in both companies. Peter Clausi: One mill for both sites or one mill each? Daniel Major: They are so far apart country-wise. One is up in North Africa and one is in Southern Africa. It is a really long way. Both sites are going to be designed to produce yellowcake and ship out yellowcake from them. Both projects less than $38.00 a pound all including, all their capital. All the infrastructure is there, great jurisdictions. The last project we have is in Mali. It is an advanced exploration play. It has actually gone to PF once, but it was never issued so all the technical study is there. You have got a company now that has had $250 million dollars of technical studies invested on it, so well advanced. Peter Clausi: The uranium market generally has been a hard one to predict over the past few years. We have all been waiting for a rebound in pricing and it is slowly battling its way up. What is your take on it? Daniel Major: I have been with this company for 5 years. I have enjoyed the pleasure of sliding uranium prices. I think I have to stay a little longer to enjoy the upside. I think what you see now is there were a lot of pressures on the top and each year we go past one of those pressures come off. I think the problem we have had is they have just taken longer for them all to add up. If you look at what UXC Consulting is saying they are looking at a deficit this year. I think the overhangs we have got at the moment; you have got the impact to the U.S. guys, the Section 232 … Peter Clausi: Right, from Energy Fuels and  . . . Daniel Major: What it has done is just take the U.S. buyers out of the market and they are the biggest spot buyers. The guys you want there are in the market buying, they are just not there at the moment...to access the complete interview, click here

http://www.euronews.com/ Islamist suicide bombers have struck at an army barracks and a French-run uranium mine in Niger. In Agadez in the north, at least 20 soldiers were killed and 16 others injured when the bombers attacked at dawn. In Arlit, one person died and several others were injured in a car bomb attack at a uranium mine operated by the French nuclear group Areva. A West African offshoot of al-Qaeda's north African wing has claimed responsibility. The group was part of a loose Islamist coalition which seized control of neighbouring north Mali last year before being ousted by a French-led offensive in January.

LEAD IN : The recent conflict in Mali did not slow the pace of development in the capital, Bamako. As the city expands, the demand for building materials is growing, and this is having consequences on the environment. The mighty Niger river has traditionally provided a livelihood for the people that live along its banks. Now the need for sand from the river is threatening the traditional industries of fishing and oil. Some fear the exploitation of the river bed has consequences for the delicate equilibrium of the river. But for the sand divers that plunder the river banks, the rewards are rich. STORYLINE : The sand divers begin their journey at sunrise, setting off by pirogue (traditional boats) along the River Niger. They travel fifty kilometres (31 miles) from the Kalaban-Koro harbour in the Mali capital, Bamako to set anchor in Djoliba. The waterway has traditionally been the source of oil and food for many that live along the river. But now the dig for sand is changing the way of life on the river. Many of the sand workers come from the north of Mali, and are residents of cities on the banks of the Niger. Mining sand is more profitable than setting fishing nets. Each man can earn up to 6 500 FCFA (Franc de la Communaut� Financi�re d'Afrique) a day (10 euros/ $14 US Dollars) which is a good salary in Mali, where the legal minimum salary is 45 euros ($62 dollars) per month. When they arrive at the spot in the river that they want to mine, they strip off and jump into the river, returning to the surface with buckets full of sand dredged from the riverbed. The sand divers work without breathing aids and often dive as deep as three metres to dig out the sand by hand. Toure, a sand diver originally from Timbukutu says that it is hard work but the rewards are worth it. " I can say that everything is difficult in this work. Water is cold, work in itself is hard. There is nothing easy but it's noble work. We earn our living by the sweat of our brow." After just two or three hours the pirogues are full and the men join up to fifteen boats, laden with sand, together for the journey home. Back in Bamako it will be sold for use in the construction industry for the booming city. But the industry has attracted criticism from the government agency responsible for the Niger river. Bougouzanga Goita is the director of the Niger River Agency, a government body. He says that sand mining is not regulated and it is harming the delicate river environment. " A study showed that sand mining is digging the bottom of the river, which has consequences on banks collapsing. And when 'fish house' is disturbed there is consequences on fish reproduction. Egg-laying is disturbed, eggs are exposed " A report published in 2011 was carried out by IRD (Institut de recherche pour le d�veloppement) carried out in 2011, a French research organisation which studies the relationship between man and its environment, in Africa, Mediterranean, Latin America, Asia and the French tropical overseas territories, in collaboration with Malian National Direction of Hydraulique and French universities. It found that between 15 and 20 millions of cubic metres (m3) of material may have been taken from the river between 2000 and 2006 from around 90 miles (144 kilometres) north from Bamako to 90 miles (144 kilometres) south from Bamako. The report authors warned that the river is actually becoming deeper in places, by several centimetres annually and that depletion of the river bed resulted in the loss of arable land, deterioration of infrastructure, bridges etc and loss of fisheries, due to fishing being disturbed and lack of access of local people to water sources.

Welcome to Top10Archive! We live in a day and age where nuclear power is becoming a common need for daily life. In 2011, the Key World Energy Statistics found that 10% of the world's electricity was provided via nuclear power plants; but what, ultimately, fuels these plants to provide power? All across the globe, uranium mines gather the natural resource used as the basis of all nuclear power; and while many countries contribute to the mining of uranium, these 10 countries provide the highest amount per year, based on tonnes mined in 2013.
