Galilee Basin mega mine by the numbers [infographic]

The Indian-Australian consortium GVK-Hancock recently received the approval of the Australian government to move forward with its ambitious project: the Kevin’s Corner mine, located in the Galilee Basin. The development of the project is expected to start in 2015 with the first coal being produced in 2018.

But, despite the economical advantages of the mine and the approval provided by the Federal Environment Minister, there are still big concerns regarding the mine’s water usage. Here are some numbers to elucidate you.


Tia Maria Copper Mine

The Tia Maria copper mine, a project that is being developed near Arequipa, in Peru, might currently be one of the industry’s most expensive and ambitious projects, but that didn’t stop the protesters from showing their dissatisfaction in the last years.

The project has been halted since 2011, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel for the Arizona-based mining company Southern Copper. The work at the mine might restart in January of 2014 and this means production could kick-off as soon as March.

For now, Southern Cooper is expected to deliver an environmental impact assessment that will be evaluated by Peru’s Ministry of Energy and Mines. In the meantime, check our latest infographic and learn more about the numbers that make Tia Maria.


Signatories of the Minamata Convention [infographic]

A document that means “the beginning of the end of mercury as a threat to human health and the environment”. These were the words chosen by the executive director of the UN Environment Programme, Achim Steiner, to describe the Minamata Convention, recently signed by more than 90 countries.

These nations vowed to ban several mercury products until 2020 and are planning the best way to forbid the mining of fresh mercury and mercury emissions from new power plants, measures that must be applied within 15 years of the treaty coming into effect. Besides, the signatories will also have to eradicate or transform artisanal and small-scale gold mining operations that use mercury.

Overall, it’s an extremely important document for the future of the planet and that is why today we bring you this infographic that gathers all the signatories of the convention for you to see.
