Growing up, Barkha Dutt was totally rootless. She spoke English, not her parent's Punjabi. She devoured Enid Blyton and studied English literature during college, but read few Indian novelists. She didn't even know her caste. This has opened her up to criticism as being a progressive elite who is out of touch with her heritage, and challenged her to be especially thoughtful in the way she examines the many overlapping values in Indian society. A successful broadcast journalist and columnist, she currently runs the YouTube-based news channel MoJo Story and recently published a new book, ​​Humans of COVID: To Hell and Back. Barkha joined Tyler to discuss how Westerners can gain a more complete picture of India, the misogyny still embedded in Indian society, why family law should be agnostic of religious belief, the causes of declining fertility in India, why relations between Hindus and Muslims seem to be worsening, how caste has persisted so strongly in India, the success of India's subsidized institutes of higher education, the best city for Indian food, the power of Amar Chitra Katha's comics, the influence of her English liberal arts education, the future of Anglo-American liberalism in India, the best ways to use Twitter, and more.

Fortalecer el desarrollo productivo de los usuarios del Programa de Desarrollo Local (Prodesal), es uno de los propósitos más importantes del Fondo de Apoyo Inicial (FOA) de INDAP, incentivo que está en pleno proceso de entrega en la región de Valparaíso, y que en la comuna de San Esteban ya ha beneficiado a 172 pequeños agricultores. Es el caso de 85 ganaderos que recibieron 38 toneladas de alimento concentrado para aves, bovinos y caprinos (38.250 kilos) que les permitirán hacer frente a la temporada invernal y a la escasez de forraje producto de la mega sequía que afecta al territorio. La entrega, que se realizó frente a la casona La Ermita, demandó una inversión de INDAP de 115 mil pesos por agricultor, un total de $9.775.000.- y contó con el aporte de Anglo American de 40 mil por usuario, es decir, $3.400.000. Una de las beneficiadas con la entrega fue la ganadera Eliana Segovia (75) del sector Campos de Ahumada, “estoy muy agradecida de INDAP por este apoyo, nos devuelve el ánimo y la esperanza. Para encontrar alimento para nuestros animales nos movemos por varios lados, les compro pasas, pasto y lo complemento con otras cosas. Antiguamente yo sembraba alfalfa y tenía hartas vacas, pero con la sequía no tenemos agua, sólo el APR y el camión aljibe y nos damos vueltas con unos pocos animales porque tampoco se puede tener más”, comentó. Asimismo, otros 74 productores de frutales y hortalizas de la comuna recibieron insumos agrícolas a través del FOA, entre ellos fertilizantes agroecológicos y herramientas, entre otros productos. El incentivo también benefició a 13 apicultores que llegaron hasta la plaza de la comuna donde se les entregó material e insumos apícolas para fortalecer su producción, tales como trajes, herramientas, tortas nutricionales, equipamiento y fructosa, entre otros insumos. “Estamos apoyando a los usuarios a través de nuestros instrumentos de fomento para hacer frente a la profunda escasez hídrica por la que estamos pasando. Para eso estamos desplegando a nuestros equipos en el territorio para hacer entrega en forma oportuna y rápida de estos incentivos y dar respuesta a las necesidades urgentes de nuestros agricultores”, precisó la directora regional (s) de INDAP Valparaíso, Daniela Soto Fuentes. En total, con este incentivo, se espera beneficiar, durante este período a cerca de 450 usuarios del programa Prodesal en las comunas de Los Andes, San Esteban Calle Larga y Rinconada. Estos incentivos se suman al plan de medidas Siembra por Chile que busca aportar a la reactivación económica del país, la mitigación de precios, la generación de empleos y la seguridad alimentaria de sus habitantes, con foco especial de inversión en la Agricultura Familiar Campesina (AFC).

It is a full year since the De Beers Group set itself a dozen far-reaching 2030 ‘Building Forever' sustainability goals, which have as their four focus areas leading ethical practices, protecting the natural world, partnering for thriving communities and accelerating equal opportunity. In partnership with the countries where it operates, De Beers Group has taken on the responsibility of protecting the natural world and improving the lives of people involved with a diamond's incredible journey. Building Forever reflects De Beers Group's commitment to creating a positive lasting impact that will endure well beyond the discovery of its last diamond. Building Forever involves continuing to work “tirelessly” to advance industry standards, enhance transparency of diamond provenance and improve the livelihoods of artisanal miners as well as partnering to improve health and education outcomes and increase livelihood opportunities to support community resilience and economic diversification in the group's host countries of Botswana, Canada, Namibia and South Africa. The 134-year-old De Beers Group – an explorer, miner and marketer of rough diamonds with operations across the diamond value chain, including its retail brands De Beers Jewellers and De Beers Forevermark – is zealously committed to being carbon neutral by 2030. In the next eight years, replacement of nearly all the fossil electricity it uses is planned. This will be done by building new wind and solar power plants and recovering remaining emissions through nature-based solutions, such as through the company's recently-announced partnership with innovative start-up Kelp Blue, which aims to sequester carbon dioxide in large seaweed forests off the Namibia coast. Alongside becoming operationally carbon neutral, it plans to halve its water footprint as well as achieve net positive biodiversity impact. Together with its joint venture partners, De Beers Group employs more than 20 000 people across the diamond pipeline and is the world's largest diamond producer by value. In terms of the first focus area of leading ethical practices, achievements the Anglo American group company chalked up in 2021 included: increasing capacity of its innovative diamond traceability blockchain platform, TracrTM, which now has the ability to register up to one million diamonds a week; launching the pilot of De Beers Code of Origin, a consumer-facing trusted source programme; bringing the first dedicated GemFairTM parcels of ethically-sourced artisanal and small-scale mined diamonds to market. GemFair is De Beers Group's initiative to support the formalisation of the artisanal and small-scale sector; and implementing a land reclamation programme in Sierra Leone to bring old artisanal mine sites back to productive farming use, supporting livelihoods and food security for local communities. Under protecting the natural world, 2021 highlights were: reducing energy intensity by 11%; progressing a project to build a 60 MW solar farm at its Venetia mine in Limpopo; launching Okavango Eternal, a five-year partnership with National Geographic to help protect the critical source waters of the Okavango Delta in southern Africa; continuing to manage biodiversity and protecting threatened species across the Diamond Route's 500 000 ha of protected southern African land; and completing a strategy for addressing Scope 3 emissions in its global supply chain. Achievements under partnering for thriving communities included: supporting more than 2 600 jobs through enterprise development initiatives in southern Africa and supporting more than 18 000 students at 25 schools in South Africa; commencing delivery of the partnership with National Geographic, which includes commitments to support the development of livelihood opportunities for 10 000 people across Africa's Okavango Basin and help ensure water and food security for more than one million people; pledging $6.8-million to support vaccine procurement and rollout...

Yoram Hazony, Chairman of the Edmund Burke Foundation, joins Jacki to review his latest book, Conservatism, A Rediscovery.  Hazony explains how Anglo-American conservatism became a distinctive alternative to divine-right monarchy, Puritan theocracy, and liberal revolution. Hazony describes the rise and fall of Enlightenment liberalism after World War II and the present-day debates between neoconservatives and national conservatives over how to respond to liberalism and the woke. Going where no political thinker has gone in decades, Hazony provides a fresh theoretical foundation for conservatism. Rejecting the liberalism of Hayek, Strauss, and the "fusionists" of the 1960s, he argues that a revival of authentic Anglo-American conservatism is possible in the twenty-first century.

A rare earths development is marking time owing to a prospecting right appeal to explore where a mining right has already been granted, Steenkampskraal chairperson Trevor Blench disclosed at last week's Junior Indaba. The Steenkampskraal mine contains all 15 rare earths, including those that are used to make electric vehicles and wind turbines. As reported by Mining Weekly last month, Steenkampskraal Holdings (SHL), which owns the rare earths project, in the Western Cape, has decided to raise equity funding through a pre-initial public offering and public offering on the Aim market of the London Stock Exchange and a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. A subsidiary of SHL, Steenkampskraal Monazite Mine, has all the regulatory approvals in place to start mining and producing monazite concentrate. SHL is in discussions with potential offtake partners. Steenkampskraal has a mineral resource estimate of 605 000 t of ore, grading 14.4% total rare earth oxides (TREO), containing about 86 900 t of TREO, including 15 630 t of neodymium, 4 459 t of praseodymium, 867 t of dysprosium and 182 t of terbium. The mine was previously operated by diversified mining major Anglo American from 1952 to 1963, during which time it produced 26 969 t of TREO. SHL envisages a production rate of 2 700 t/y of TREO over a life of more than 20 years, involving first producing and selling monazite concentrate, then progressing to producing and selling mixed rare earth concentrates, and thereafter producing and selling separated rare earth oxides. The project is also said to have brownfield exploration potential. SHL recently appointed Graham Soden as a director and the mine manager of Steenkampskraal, while Timothy Crombie has been appointed as a director and project manager. In a presentation to last week's Junior Indaba covered by Mining Weekly, Blench disclosed that although the mining right to mine for rare earths and other minerals on portion 1 of the farm Steenkampskraal was secured from the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) in 2010, a few months ago another company applied for a prospecting right for rare earths on the same portion of Steenkampskraal. “The DMRE correctly refused to approve that permit for a prospecting right over the same land where we hold the mining right. However, the company that applied for that prospecting right appealed to the DMRE against their decision to refuse that prospecting application. “We've now been waiting for 60 days, which is the statutory period that the DMRE has to review these appeals, and we still do not have the reply from the DMRE. “We want to raise money for our project. There's an application of a prospecting right on land where we have a mining right, which contests the legitimacy of our mining right. “If there is an opportunity for claim jumpers to come in and apply for prospecting rights where you have already issued a mining right, then it questions the validity of the mining right,” said Blench, who implored the government to make it clear that the mining right is secure so that investment can proceed. During question time, Junior Indaba chairperson and mining stalwart Bernard Swanepoel spoke of Minerals Council South Africa having resolved administrative problems of a similar kind in the past. “My advice from past experience is that the channel between Minerals Council South Africa and the DMRE functions reasonably well, so if there is a clear case of the DMRE having 60 days and not coming back, it may be worth contacting the Minerals Council, and I could even assist you. We have resolved a few such administrative problems in the past. If it's just inefficiency, then this channel may assist,” said Swanepoel. MINE PROGRESS According to its website, Steenkampskraal has a: compliant technical report with both mineral resource and reserve estimates; renewable new order mining right valid until 2030; National Nuclear Regulator certificate of registration that allows it ...

Property law (2022): Future use (control): Rule against perpetuities + Restraint on alienation

Law School

The rule against perpetuities is a legal rule in the Anglo-American common law that prevents people from using legal instruments (usually a deed or a will) to exert control over the ownership of private property for a time long beyond the lives of people living at the time the instrument was written. Specifically, the rule forbids a person from creating future interests (traditionally contingent remainders and executory interests) in property that would vest beyond 21 years after the lifetimes of those living at the time of creation of the interest, often expressed as a “life in being plus twenty-one years”. In essence, the rule prevents a person from putting qualifications and criteria in a deed or a will that would continue to affect the ownership of property long after he or she has died, a concept often referred to as control by the "dead hand" or "mortmain". The basic elements of the rule against perpetuities originated in England in the 17th century and were "crystallized" into a single rule in the 19th century. The rule's classic formulation was given in 1886 by the American legal scholar John Chipman Gray: No interest is good unless it must vest, if at all, not later than twenty-one years after some life in being at the creation of the interest. — John Chipman Gray, Rule Against Perpetuities § 201. The rule against perpetuities serves a number of purposes. First, English courts have long recognized that allowing owners to attach long-lasting contingencies to their property harms the ability of future generations to freely buy and sell the property, since few people would be willing to buy property that had unresolved issues regarding its ownership hanging over it. Second, judges often had concerns about the dead being able to impose excessive limitations on the ownership and use of property by those still living. For this reason, the rule only allows testators (will-makers) to put contingencies on ownership upon the following generation plus 21 years. Lastly, the rule against perpetuities was sometimes used to prevent very large, possibly aristocratic estates from being kept in one family for more than one or two generations at a time. The rule also applies to options to acquire property. Often, one of the objectives of delaying the time of vesting is to avoid or reduce taxation of some sort. For example, a bequest in a will may be to one's grandchildren, often with a life interest to one's surviving spouse and then to the children, to avoid the payment of multiple death duties or inheritance taxes on the testator's estate. The rule against perpetuities was one of the devices developed to at least limit this tax avoidance strategy. A restraint on alienation, in the law of real property, is a clause used in the conveyance of real property that seeks to prohibit the recipient from selling or otherwise transferring their interest in the property. Under the common law such restraints are void as against the public policy of allowing landowners to freely dispose of their property. Perhaps the ultimate restraint on alienation was the fee tail, a form of ownership which required that property be passed down in the same family from generation to generation, which has also been widely abolished. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

Platinum-boosted South African hydrogen electrolyser leaps ahead

The proof-of-concept of the platinum-boosted advanced alkaline electrolyser – the AAE ­– has been successfully completed by Hydrox Holdings of Randburg in a pioneering achievement that offers the potential for South Africa to enter the fray as world demand for hydrogen electrolysers goes through the roof. “The future of green hydrogen looks great and we intend to play a leading role in this,” an upbeat Hydrox CEO Corrie de Jager enthused to Mining Weekly. (Also watch attached Creamer Media video.) The wonderfully cost-effective, locally conceived AAE electrolyser uses the latest technology to achieve high current densities at low operating voltages, resulting in excellent hydrogen production efficiencies. Attracting a favourable response is Hydrox's offtake concept, which involves customers paying only for the hydrogen, a potential game-changer in the unlocking the hydrogen economy. The Hydrox team is confident that it will outperform existing alkaline electrolysers and take green hydrogen down the cost curve as Africa's first original equipment manufacturer of electrolysers. “The vast experience we gained through the development of various innovative electrolysis systems has been of major benefit,” said De Jager. Hydrox engineers designed the AAE system from the ground up, using state-of-the-art components. More than 70% of the electrolyser is locally manufactured/sourced, a local content that will undoubtedly increase once a South African hydrogen supply chain is in place. De Jager hailed the commitment of mining company Anglo American to reach carbon neutrality through the replacement of its mining fleet with hydrogen fuel cell trucks, an area in which Hydrox sees itself playing a major role as a preferred supplier of electrolysis systems, at a time when electrolysers are being imported as fully manufactured units. While established global electrolyser manufacturers are focused on the large 3 MW-plus systems, the focus of Hydrox is on a fully containerised 1 MW system, which simplifies installation and deployment, especially in remote areas. With the single biggest factor influencing the price of hydrogen remaining the cost of electricity, access to renewable energy will have major price and greenness benefits for the AAE unit. At an electricity price of R0.50 kWh, Hydrox is confident that its electrolyser will generate hydrogen at a cost of US$3/kg, giving clients with curtailed or excess renewable energy the ability to store such energy as hydrogen. EXPANSION AND JOB CREATION The next step for Hydrox is AAE's scale up to larger sizes, which implies increasing its own capacities and employing specialised engineering firms to complete full system engineering processes. This will be followed by the commissioning of 100 kg/day, 200 kg/day and 400 kg/day units. “We foresee huge expansion and job creation possibilities,” said De Jager, with the prospect of Hydrox technology being licenced to facilitate roll-out in other countries. Moreover, the operational and maintenance requirements of AAE electrolysers will create further opportunities. AWARD-WINNING TECHNOLOGY Hydrox became known to the scientific community by developing the world's first totally membraneless electrolysis system. However, further development of the award-winning Shell-funded DEFTTM hydrogen technology was temporarily halted, owing to a lack of financial resources as well as the urgent need to focus on the completion of the AAE. But with global interest in DEFTTM resurging once more, Hydrox is in talks with various parties to fast track its development once more. Hydrox is confident that it will be able to slash 25% off the produced cost of hydrogen by moving to higher temperature operation of 200 °C and 250 °C, allowing for better usage of power and heat inputs, and thus targeting higher production efficiencies. Current electrolysis systems can waste up to 40% of the electrical input through heat production and removal. As a privately funded company Hydr...

Platinum jewellery continuing to drive 25% of platinum demand

Several reports published during Platinum Week indicate that in 2021, platinum jewellery consumed anywhere between 1.6-million ounces to two-million ounces of platinum, which makes it still the second demand source after automotive, coming in at around 25% of total platinum demand. Positive momentum for platinum jewellery is being maintained in the US, which shone like a star in 2021, and Japan, where platinum jewellery commands more than half of all jewellery sales. This year, US and Japan are already above pre-covid levels, exceeding 2029 data in terms of total ounce consumption – and India has seen quite strong V-shaped post-covid recoveries. In those three markets, continued 2022 strengthening is in sight, with only China the big concern. “We expect China to remain in negative territory, unfortunately,” Platinum Guild International CEO Huw Daniel told Mining Weekly during a Zoom interview, but India is seen as having considerable potential. (Also watch attached Creamer Media video.) "India is a very, very exciting market. That saying ‘don't put all your eggs in one basket' is a good thing here. When we see China demand continuing to be soft, it's really important that we're doing what we can in India, because that really is the next frontier for platinum," said Daniel. Platinum Guild International has contributed more than 80-million ounces of platinum demand since being established in 1975 by first identifying opportunities for platinum in jewellery and then develops them with partners. “It's interesting, when you come to something like Platinum Week, there's obviously a lot of energy around auto, a lot of energy around hydrogen, and what I would say is 'that's all very well, but platinum jewellery demand is demand in the hand, today and tomorrow'. “When it's very important that the industry plans for the next generation of demand, let's not forget that we already have 25% of platinum demand coming from jewellery, and that doesn't happen automatically. “Our sponsors have been amazingly committed to platinum, led by Anglo American and Impala Platinum, with contributions also from Northam and Royal Bafokeng. “Those four companies really have stuck by us, and I would just say there's so much potential for platinum in the jewellery space. The world needs a high quality pure white precious metal, there's a market for that, and it's up to us to develop it,” Daniel emphasised. Platinum Guild International's just-released 2021 report shows that platinum is continuing to create sustainable business for jewellery brands. During height of the pandemic, in those markets that did not experience a complete lockdown, platinum was able to benefit from the significant shift in consumer spending towards watches and jewellery. In addition, the platinum price is in a favourable position compared with gold, certainly for Western and developed markets, not so much for China. “The Chinese really need to see a bull market when it comes to the price of platinum for them to really get in there and commit to it. But certainly in the US, Japan we've not seen such favourable pricing for a while, so there has been quite a bit of substitution of platinum for 18 carat gold, which is our main competitor in those markets,” said Daniel. To boost demand still further, Platinum Guild International is working with the bigger players who are the market makers. “We find we get a lot of traction when we partner very closely with these big companies and get their C suites to focus on platinum,” said Daniel. “The main brands are the retailers, so we've made a concerted effort to leverage branded collections as a way to offer retailers a product that's differentiated and a product that's got a story,“ he said.

Anton grew up committed to justice, with a strong sense of the realities of power politics.   About two years after the JFK assassination, Chaitkin heard from Lyndon LaRouche that financiers were shifting American strategy away from industrial progress, toward cheap labor, foreshadowing fascist policies and systemic collapse. An association was formed, to defeat those who had brutalized contemporary thought in science, economics, the arts, and philosophy.   In a systematic inquiry into American history, Chaitkin found that the mental map of our former leaders was far more profound and more pro-human than anything available in the post-JFK era.  He is the leading chronicler of the two contending sides in U.S. history, the advocates of progress for America and other sovereign nations, versus the Anglo-American imperialists.   Chaitkin's books: Treason in America, from Aaron Burr to Averell Harriman (1985). George Bush, the Unauthorized Biography (1991, co-author). Who We Are: America's Fight for Universal Progress, from Franklin to Kennedy, Volume 1, 1750s to 1850s (2020, Amazon.com paperback and Kindle e-book. Who We Are Volumes 2 and 3 will continue the story from Abraham Lincoln to Franklin Roosevelt and John Kennedy, showing America's astonishing contributions to humanity when governed by a philosophy opposite to today's hate-filled globalism.   Interview Panel   Grace Asagra, RN MA Podcast:  Quantum Nurse: Out of the Rabbit Hole from Stress www.quantumnurse.life https://www.bitchute.com/channel/nDjE6Ciyg0ED http://www.earthheroestv.com/categories/the-freedom-broadcasters?via=grace https://graceasagra.podbean.com/ https://rumble.com/c/c-764837     Hartmut Schumacher Podcast: GO YOUR OWN PATH https://anchor.fm/hartmut-schumacher-path   Dr. Jayne Marquis, ND  Podcast: INpowered  https://linktr.ee/INpoweredhealth     Roy Coughlan Podcast: AWAKENING https://www.awakeningpodcast.org/

Bad Mexicans: Race, Empire, and Revolution in the Borderlands (Norton, 2022)tells the dramatic story of the magonistas, the migrant rebels who sparked the 1910 Mexican Revolution from the United States. Led by a brilliant but ill-tempered radical named Ricardo Flores Magón, the magonistas were a motley band of journalists, miners, migrant workers, and more, who organized thousands of Mexican workers--and American dissidents--to their cause. Determined to oust Mexico's dictator, Porfirio Díaz, who encouraged the plunder of his country by U.S. imperialists such as Guggenheim and Rockefeller, the rebels had to outrun and outsmart the swarm of U. S. authorities vested in protecting the Diaz regime. The U.S. Departments of War, State, Treasury, and Justice as well as police, sheriffs, and spies, hunted the magonistas across the country. Capturing Ricardo Flores Magón was one of the FBI's first cases. But the magonistas persevered. They lived in hiding, wrote in secret code, and launched armed raids into Mexico until they ignited the world's first social revolution of the twentieth century. Taking readers to the frontlines of the magonista uprising and the counterinsurgency campaign that failed to stop them, Kelly Lytle Hernández puts the magonista revolt at the heart of U.S. history. Long ignored by textbooks, the magonistas threatened to undo the rise of Anglo-American power, on both sides of the border, and inspired a revolution that gave birth to the Mexican-American population, making the magonistas' story integral to modern American life.

These are the words of Joel Skousen, a former U.S. Marine Corps' pilot and a 50-year student of international affairs, and now the editor-in-chief of the weekly World Affairs Brief . These statements are a mouthful, but Mr. Skousen also provides a splendid chronological history of how the United States arrived at this point, and that the only option Americans have now is to prepare their families and communities for the worst. Starting with Wall Street's funding of the Bolsheviks in 1917, and the successful Anglo-American operation to move Leon Trotsky and the $40 million he was carrying from the United States to Russia, and continuing through the sub-rosa aid given to the globalists, Russians, and Chinese by Bill Clinton in 1997 through his alteration U.S. nuclear doctrine by ending the "launch on warning" policy -- which would have allowed a U.S. nuclear attack to hit targets before the enemies attack arrived -- and replaced it with an "absorb the first strike" policy. Next, in 1997, Clinton ordered that 50% of the U.S. nuclear submarine fleet must remain in port at all times to show good will for China and Russia. Mr. Skousen closed by saying it's time for Americans to get out of cities to rural havens where survivors can form into small communities, to prepare for the worst by arming and stockpiling life's necessities, and to get acquainted again with the Bible.  --Mr. Skousen's websites are: http://www.worldaffairsbrief.com and http:www.joelskausen.com--Mr. Skousen's books include:--Strategic Relocation, North American Guide to Safe Places, Fourth Edition--The High Security Shelter - How to Implement a Multi-Purpose Safe Room in the Home, 5th Edition [2017]

It's been a busy period for mining powerhouse Anglo American formally bidding farewell to its turnaround CEO, Mark Cutifani, dubbed the rocketman by the FM recently, and releasing a disappointing first quarter operating update with a 10% production decline blamed on wet weather in Brazil and South Africa as key factor. Since Cutifani took over the reins from Cynthia Carroll who was roundly criticized for overpaying on Minas Rio, the group has weathered some tough times but last year more than doubled its earnings and paid out a record $6.2bn to its shareholders amid soaring global prices for its products and solid performances from its operations. Its share price has now topped £40 — more than three times what it was when Cutifani embarked on the restructuring in mid-2013 and almost 20 times its early 2016 low. The group has outperformed its mining industry peers such as BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto over the past nine years, delivering an annual average 20% total return to shareholders which beat Cutifani's 15% target.

In this episode, we chat with Tricia Wilhelm, Head of Social Performance for Anglo American, one of the largest and most diversified mining companies in the world. Tricia has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the mining industry. Her experience has been around Sustainable Development, Social Performance, Stakeholder Engagement, Resettlement, and Social Impact Assessment. We are here today to have a more in-depth discussion around ESG and social performance and how we as a mining community can better prepare ourselves for future changes in the industry.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Social performance is about everything you are doing to maintain your social license to operate. It is not about philanthropy or one-off donations or infrastructure builds. Modern miners need to take a proactive approach to social performance. Social performance needs to be a consideration at all stages. In the same way, things like cost and technology are. A lot of mining companies do not employ people with the right experience or provide them with enough resources to be able to work proactively. Social performance is a bit part of the E and G aspects of ESG. In the podcast, Tricia demonstrates why that is the case. People do not want to work for companies that do not have a positive impact. To get your social performance right you need to work in a truly cross-disciplinary way.  The industry needs to work more collaboratively to improve social performance. It costs less, is more effective, and improves the acceptance of mining as an industry. BEST MOMENTS ‘Social performance is all about those ongoing activities that are happening with local communities and stakeholders. ´ ‘When you don't do this right (social performance) it will cost you.' ‘Leadership commitment is really critical.'   EPISODE RESOURCES Website: https://www.angloamerican.com/ LinkedIn: https://uk.linkedin.com/in/tricia-wilhelm-4a400412 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/angloamericanplc/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/AngloAmerican Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AngloAmerican/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/angloamerican SlideShare: https://www.slideshare.net/angloamerican   VALUABLE RESOURCES Email: rob@mining-international.org Website: https://www.mining-international.org/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/MiningRobTyson Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DigDeepTheMiningPodcast/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theminingpodcast/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/DigDeepTheMiningPodcast/videos   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is an established recruiter in the mining and quarrying sector and decided to produce the “Dig Deep” The Mining Podcast to provide valuable and informative content around the mining industry.

Support Queens of the Mines with a tip! Venmo- @queensofthemines CashApp $queensofthemines Paypal southernminequeen@gmail.com   Today, we are talking about an active and daring freedom fighter from California history!   For decades after America's largest migration, the gold rush began, the men who came alone to California to seek their fortunes longed for wives and women of pleasure. It was easier for Chinese traders to convince families to sell their daughters rather than their sons. The traders would offer money to the parents for their daughters, some as young as five years old. The parents were straight up lied to. They were told the traders would help their girls find wealthy husbands, or arrange for them to get an education. The girls would became domestic slaves or were sold into prostitution. The young women lived brutal lives. The youngest girls didn't last more than a few years before their worn and abused bodies gave out. They would usually die within five years after they were first held captive. Some who were on the verge of death were put in a solitary room to starve. Chinese gangs known as Tongs, usually headed up the operations. The local government overlooked the crime. San Francisco City Hall took kickbacks from Tong groups at the time so there was little government action against this problem.   Donaldina Cameron was born on a sheep farm in New Zealand in July of 1869. She spent the first three years of her life there with her Scottish family including her six older siblings. By the time she was four years old, the entire family had immigrated to the United States of America. They brought their skills and knowledge from the farm and made their home on a large sheep ranch in the San Gabriel Valley in California. San Gabriel Valley is to the east of Los Angeles in present-day Pasadena.   Her family and friends called her Dolly. Dolly's childhood was secluded from the outside world. On the ranch, she spent the days picking Johnston's bush lupine and dreaming of marrying. She would have a hard working ranch family and live the kind of comfortable life that her parents had always provided. She knew of nothing else in her new home state of California.    When she was thirteen years old, The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 was passed, the first piece of federal immigrant legislation in the United States. It was said to be originally passed to prohibit sex trafficking of Asian women and an influx of Asian male laborers. The Chinese slave trade was as much a part of San Francisco history as was the gold rush. Under the Chinese Exclusion Act, any immigrant from any area considered “undesirable” was prohibited from entering the United States. This included most of Asia. Chinese women could not enter the United States unless they were already married to a man living there. A dangerous and illegal system dubbed the "paper daughters” was created, where papers were forged stating the trafficked victims were already members of Chinese families in the United States.   Hours north, cable cars were first climbing San Francisco's hills. The city had been built to a massive scale since the gold rush began. Protestant women were launching an attack on “yellow slavery” in San Francisco. Cameron came to the city as a young woman to attend school to be a teacher. In the bay, she fell in and out of love.    Her best friend at school had an activist mother, who volunteered at the Presbyterian Mission House in San Francisco. Young Chinese girls who had been shipped from China or kidnapped to work as indentured servants were taking refuge under Maggie Culbertson's team's care. They were provided with “food, shelter, and the teachings of the Christian faith.” At the time, females made up 60 percent of the missionary force. Missionary work, and social work in general, was an example of leadership that was acceptable for Victorian women. Maggie Culbertson, the founder of the Presbyterian Mission House, was ill and needed help.    Dolly had recently left a fiance and quit college and decided to join Culbertson's team. She could teach sewing and other useful skills at the San Francisco Mission House. They agreed on a one year term. Dolly arrived in April of 1895. On her first day ever at the Mission House, sticks of dynamite were found around the premises. She then realized the magnitude of her new situation. The gangs often threatened the mission with death and destruction not just from the Tongs, but, by the police who came to roust the illegal aliens. Magggie Culbertson mentored Dolly in the ways of care and justice. Dolly relished in assisting her in providing the safe haven for the young Chinese girls. She was inspired by Culbertson's courage as she worked by her side.     Tien Fuh Wu was rescued from a Chinatown gambling den and  lived at the home when Cameron arrived. She really didn't care for her and Wu was disobedient for Dolly's first two years at the house. As a child, Wu was told she was going to San Francisco to visit her grandmother. She was taken to a boat in her native province Zhejiang, China. Her father locked her inside a cabin onboard with only a toothbrush and washcloth, told her to eat her supper and left without saying goodbye. Her father had sold her to pay off his gambling debts.    The boat brought her one hundred miles north to Shanghai, then she boarded a steamship to San Francisco. She worked as a mui tsai, or, a domestic servant in a brothel in the city until the owner at the brothel fell into debt. Wu was sold to the gambling den on Jackson Street. There, she was subjected to rigorous household chores, and physically abused by her new owner. When she was old enough, she was transferred to a life of sex work. When rescued, Wu's body was covered in burns, cuts and bruises. She arrived at the home on 920 Sacramento Street 15 months before Dolly. At the turn of the century in San Francisco, this kind of trafficking was rampant, and largely ignored by city authorities.  Culbertson's health failed when Cameron was 25 years old. Two years later, she took over as superintendent of the Presbyterian Home. Wu changed her mind about Dolly after one of the Chinese women who worked alongside Cameron passed away. The intense grief Dolly displayed showed Wu a new side of the woman. Wu worked for Dolly as a translator during court cases, and helped supervise the Mission House, earning $5 a month.    Donaldina Cameron continued Culbertson's mission of the Home. She saved young women from sex slavery and indentured servitude in the worst hellholes of Chinatown. Cameron had an uncanny knack of smelling out the brothels that were often hidden behind trap doors. Secret messages were sent to her from friends and relatives of these captive girls, tipping her off the girl's location. Engaging in chases over rooftops, down dark alleys, hiding in hidden rooms and breaking down doors with an ax. I mean shit worthy of a blockbuster feature action film.   At the safe house, the girls however, were not entirely free. They were to concede to Anglo-American ways. Dolly incorporated Chinese food and decorations into their daily living, but the students were forced to convert to Christianity. Most of the immigrant women welcomed the conversion and looked to Dolly as a hero. They called her “Lo Mo” translated it means Little Mother. Yet there were women who had mixed feelings about this forced conversion. The house was also the site of many happy marriages of girls who eventually found worthy men. When they married their chosen suitor, they would wear a white gown, rather than the traditional red. White gowns symbolize funerals in Chinese culture.   Wu was her favorite aide. Her ability to translate was a fantastic asset. She was also able to comfort the rescued girls. The brothel and slave owners commonly spread fear of "White Devils" to stop the women in their possession from seeking help. The Tongs had many nicknames for Dolly. Jesus Woman, White Spirit, White Witch, White Devil and the Angry Angel of Chinatown. The Tongs would tell their captives that the “White Witch” would drink the blood of the liberated girls to keep up her vitality. Wu would show them her own scars, ensuring their safety. The scars were evidence of her understanding. She accompanied Cameron on the dangerous rescues that took many months and intense investigation to orchestrate. When the fear of the bubonic plague had been in Chinatown. The roads were blocked off and the neighborhood was under quarantine. They used the roofs to get to the girls they were rescuing. Together, Dolly and her 4' 11" cohort saved the lives of thousands of trafficked Chinese girls and women in San Francisco. Wu was targeted by the Tongs because she herself was Chinese. The gangs saw her as a traitor. The threats were so common that after each major rescue, Cameron would stop Wu from going out alone for weeks at a time.    The law wasn't always on her side. Getting legal custody of the girls was nearly impossible for Cameron since child protection laws did not yet exist. Tong leaders would claim that they had a right to the captive as her “sponsor” and the courts often agreed. They would say the captive was a relative, or that she was working voluntarily. If she captured the girl first, she could work the legal problems out later. This way, the girl would be safe in the mission house while the courts hashed out the details.   On March 29, 1900 two Chinese men and a police officer arrived at the Mission Home looking for resident Kum Quai, who they claimed was a thief. This was a typical tactic used by the brothel owners to reclaim the women. Quai was arrested, but Cameron would not let her be alone with the men, so she joined on the train journey to Palo Alto. Quai was to be locked in a cell for the night, and Cameron remained with her. At 2 am, the deputy tried to open the door, but Cameron was suspicious of the early morning entry and barricaded them inside until the officers started breaking down the doors.    After the train, the men loaded Quai in a buggy, and Cameron attempted to follow. She was pushed out and thrown onto the road. Cameron woke townspeople up right away, panicked. Frustration spread throughout the town. A crowd demonstrated the  next day in San Jose at the office of the lawyer who planned the event. “The public uproar led to criminal indictments,” and the men involved were punished.  In 1904, she had her attorneys challenge the courts to provide for child welfare laws. It was a breakthrough that would provide her a most useful tool for her rescues. Some of the girls opted for more education, and one of Donaldina's “daughters” became the first Chinese woman to graduate from Stanford University. Another daughter trained to become the first Chinese nurse through the Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Yet other daughters stayed on at Cameron House to help with the mission's work. Cameron wrote extensively in publications like Women and Missions and a pamphlet titled "The Yellow Slave Traffic", seeking to gain financial support for her mission.    In April 1906, the great San Francisco earthquake and fire forced the evacuation of the Presbyterian Home, which was destroyed in the earthquake. The night the tragedy happened, Dolly ran through the blazing city back to her home to retrieve a logbook that detailed her guardianship over her girls. She did not want them to be forced back into servitude or prostitution.   The home was rebuilt the following year. Hidden passages were constructed in the basement of the new structure. A fire that happened years later burned several girls to death who were trapped in the very room that was supposed to keep them safe. It is said that this is ranked as one of San Francisco's allegedly haunted locations and these very women still haunt the building today. The building, now known as The Donaldina Cameron House is San Francisco Landmark #44. The doors to the basement remain sealed.    Throughout her career, she kept expanding her work. She tried to overturn the Oriental Exclusion Act, which prevented Chinese from owning property, limited where they could live and denied them the right to testify on their own behalf in an American court. Donaldina also founded two homes for Chinese children and raised awareness about widespread prejudice toward all Chinese.  Many of these children were orphans or the children of the rescued women. The Chung Mei Home served young boys, while the Ming Quong Home was for girls. The former Chung Mei house is today part of the Windrush School in El Cerrito, California, and the Ming Quong Home is now a part of Mills College in Oakland, California.    Donaldina retired in 1942 and the Presbyterian Home was renamed the Donaldina Cameron House. After retirement, Donaldina moved to the Palo Alto area. Despite living in Chinatown for 40 years, Cameron never learned Chinese. Three years later, she adopted an orphan from Korea. Wu lived next door to Cameron when she was an elderly woman living in Palo Alto. She is credited with saving and educating over 3,000 Chinese immigrant women and girls and was considered a "national icon". Over 800 women are recorded as having lived there between 1874 and 1909 .    Cameron was remembered for how close she was with the home's residents and for being kind and caring to all people, despite their nationalities. At the same time, she was part of the larger missionary system, in which “the ethnocentric attitude and national and religious absolutism… cannot be denied”. She made an effort to embrace these women's culture when she arrived at the Mission Home. “Nothing angered Miss Cameron more than the racial discrimination to which Chinese were subjected in housing, employment, and education”. For the time, Cameron was progressive and accepting. However, she still forced the residents to comply with her leadership and culture.   Historian Dorothy Gray calls her “perhaps the most active and daring freedom fighter in the history of the West.” Ron Cameron, Donaldina's great nephew, remembers that when visiting the elderly Cameron on her birthday, years after she stopped working, he “would have to get in a line that was about two blocks long of Chinese people who had driven… to wish her a happy birthday    She died in Palo Alto, California, in 1968, at the age of 98. Wu is said to have been at her mentor's side, reading from a Bible until the very end. She is buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in the East Side neighborhood of Boyle Heights in Los Angeles. When Wu passed away seven years later, she was buried next to her friend in Cameron's family plot at the Evergreen Cemetery in Los Angeles.   The Cameron House still stands today in San Francisco, serving as a multi-service agency serving Asian communities by promoting healthy Christian communities through programs like youth sports, tutoring, and counseling. If you call Cameron House today, the phone is still answered in Chinese. Miranda Raison portrays Donaldina Cameron in the Cinemax TV series Warrior as Nellie Davenport. Ah Toy is also a character in that series.  https://cameronhouse.org/ https://truewestmagazine.com/donaldina-cameron/ https://www.kqed.org/arts/13880286/the-child-slave-who-helped-rescue-thousands-of-women-in-chinatown   http://www.sfmuseum.net/1906/ew15.html   https://truewestmagazine.com/donaldina-cameron/ https://www.foundsf.org/index.php?title=Donaldina_Cameron:_The_Person_Behind_the_Legend

Juana Briones - The Founding Mother of San Francisco

Here is the story of a Mexican-American pioneer, healer, trailblazer, businesswoman and landowner. Her name is Doña Juana Briones de Miranda and she is the woman remembered as the "Founding Mother of San Francisco”, for she was one of the first three settlers in Yerba Buena before it became San Francisco. Juana left an important legacy in California. She was an active and caring person who impacted the lives of many people — Hispanic, indigenous and Anglo-American.   In 1769, Marcos Briones and his father Vicente arrived in Alta California from San Luis Potosí, New Spain - today's Mexico. Marcos and Vicente were soldiers in the Portola expedition. In Alta California, Marcos met and married Isidora Tapia. Isidora and her family arrived later, her father Felipe, a soldier on the de Anza expedition in 1776. Star crossed lovers, whose families traveled over 1600 miles on a mission to colonize and explore the region and establish the Mission San Francisco de Asi.    Marcos was a founding settler of Villa de Branciforte, in present-day Santa Cruz. Branciforte was the last of only three secular pueblos founded by the Spanish colonial government of Alta California. On the eastern bluff of the San Lorenzo River, facing Mission Santa Cruz, their daughter Juana  Briones was born in March of 1802. Juana spent the first decade of her life in a wattle-and-daub house doing chores alongside her brothers and sisters, having fun and gaining an extensive knowledge of herbal medicines through her interactions with Native Americans. The majority of the population there was indigenous. When she was ten, her mother Ysidora passed away.   Marcos moved the family to an area called Tennessee Hollow. Marcos began to help build what would become the Presidio of San Francisco. Starting as a fortified military village used for farming and livestock grazing. Juana was shaped by the native people of the region and the language, religion, and institutions of colonial New Spain. She'd learned more about herbs and their medicinal values from the new region from her grandmother, who learned them from native Ohlone women.    Herbs like Yerba Buena (which translates to Good Herb), which provided the first name of the city of San Francisco. It was said the community of Yerba Buena was named for her healing mint tea. She was schooled informally by the Catholic priests at the Mission Dolores. With other military children and the Native Americans who had been rounded up and brought to the mission for “conversion” to Catholicism, she attended regular daily mass but she did not learn to read or write.     Juana met a handsome soldier stationed at the Presidio named Apolinario Miranda. His parents were of Yaqui descent. The Yaqui were indigenous to the Mexican state of Sonora and the Southwestern United States. Juana and Apolinario were married in 1820 and established a farm at the Presidio near the site of El Polin Spring. It is one of the few remaining springs in the city  and runs under the site of her long-vanished home. The spring waters of the were believed to bestow fertility. With that in mind, Juana gave birth to 11 children between 1821 and 1841.   In 1828, Juana had a tragic month when three of her children died and a fourth child passed just one year later in the rugged frontier environment.  Juana was a strong woman. Apolinario was abusive and Juana's time with him was not happy. So abusive that his military superiors reprimanded him for it numerous times. He had a serious drinking problem and wasn't much of a rancher or businessman.    In the area now known as North Beach, near what is now Washington Square, the Briones bought land. Juana was a natural entrepreneur and started a dairy ranch at their new home. They were one of the first three non-indigenous settlers in Yerba Buena who lived somewhere other than on the Presidio or at Mission Dolores. After Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821, commerce increased in the San Francisco Bay. Briones excelled in farming and sold milk and produce to the crews of Russian, American and Spanish ships that docked in the bay for the hide and tallow trade.   Juana also treated many illnesses such as smallpox and scurvy patients, delivered babies and set broken jaws. You could not count how many children had their broken bones set by this kind woman. Her reputation as a healer was widely recognized. She trained her nephew, Pablo Briones—who was later known as the Doctor of Bolinas or California in medicinal arts. Her aid to the people of Bolinas during a smallpox outbreak was well-known, and she was loved among Hispanic settlers, native people and the Anglo-Americans alike.   She taught her own children the value of hard work. As soon as they could walk, they learned to pull weeds and how to load the wagon. Her daughters Presentacion and Manuela were fine seamstresses and they did the sailors' laundry and mended their clothes. Her son Jesus went to the boats to see what the men needed, and delivered goods and messages to Juana. She also harbored four runaway sailors who jumped ship because they wanted to remain in California. Two Americans, a Filipino man and a Native American from Connecticut. The men lived with her and Apolinario until 1832.   In 1833, Briones' husband was granted land bordering the Presidio near today's Green and Lyon Streets. Their new home was on another spring called El Ojo de Agua Figueroa.  In 1834, Juana adopted Cecilia, a young Native girl whose parents had died. In 1835, the Presidio was temporarily abandoned when Commandante Vallejo transferred his military headquarters north to Sonoma. It was then that her husband's abuse became intolerable. Marriage was considered indissoluble by society at the time. She turned to the Catholic bishop. “My husband did not earn our money. I did,” she told the bishop, “My husband does not support the family. I do.”  As her husband, he had access to any property she acquired. The bishop was moved by her plea, knowing full well her husband was a good-for-nothing, and with the mayor's help, the bishop helped her move to the western foot of Loma Alta in the area now known as Telegraph Hill.   Her husband tried to force her to return home and legal officials ordered him to stay away, which he didn't. Briones appealed to courts repeatedly with suit against her husband for physical abuse after repeated episodes of violence and in return a justice of the peace seized some of his property. Juana navigated the male-leaning legal system, hiring people to write on her behalf. This was no small step in the patriarchal, hierarchical world of 19th century colonial California. Juana was free and Apolinario Miranda later died.   She found the booming city too frantic, and bought a 4,000-acre ranch in Santa Clara Valley from her friends José Gorgonio and his son José Ramon in 1844. She named it Rancho La Purisima Concepción and successfully expanded her cattle and farming interests. The Briones family ranch was a home, social hall, and hospital all rolled into one. Briones' status as a female landowner was unusual in an era where women generally could only possess land they inherited from a deceased husband. Yet she was an independent woman who was prospering on her own. Her children also prospered.  In 1848, Mexico ceded this land to the U.S. under the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill. Almost overnight, the sleepy little mission became a busy city, filled with all manner of men who came to get rich overnight and ‘ladies of the night' who hoped to liberate the men from their gold dust. Juana wasn't bothered by the U.S. coup at all, in fact, when her Anglo friends suggested she become an American citizen, she did.  Across the nation, Boston traders sought out her “California banknotes,” as they called her cowhides. She entertained lavishly, with European and American guests attending her fiestas. “Anglo, Hispanics, and Native Americans came for bear fights, calf roping, and pig roasts. Sick people also came to recuperate under Juana's watchful gaze.”   When the U.S. made California a state in 1850, all Mexican landholders were put through many hurdles with proving they had title to their property. The original landowners were required to certify their land ownership before the U.S. Land Commission. The legal process was too difficult or expensive for many people, especially the women and racial minorities who had owned land under Mexican law. Many were cheated out of their land. In 1852, the U.S. Government informed Juana it intended to seize her land that had originally been granted in her husband's name. Apolinario Miranda was dead by then, and the government said she had no legal right to the property.    She fought for 12 years to retain the title to her lands in both San Francisco and Santa Clara counties and many of the Anglos she'd helped over the years came to assist her in the fight for her rights. The battle went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. She won ownership of her ranch and the property in Yerba Buena. Juana left portions of her rancho La Purisima Concepción to her children, who bore their father's name, Miranda and sold the rest to members of the Murphy family, who came to California with the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy Party.    Briones purchased other tracts of land and eventually settled the town of Mayfield. Briones' was one of the founding members of today's Palo Alto. She built a home there in 1884 and remained in Mayfield for the remainder of her lifetime. Juana Briones died in a cow stampede in 1889 at the age of 87.    In 2010, her house at 4155 Old Adobe Road in Palo Alto was listed as one of the 11 most endangered historic places in the country by The National Trust for Historic Preservation. Despite a big fight between the owners and educators, historians, architects, neighbors, and business and community leaders, a demolition crew arrived a year later to dismantle her modest home. The property was sold the following summer for $2.9 million.   Doña Juana Briones de Miranda is remembered as the "Founding Mother of San Francisco” and is buried at Holy Cross Cemetery in Menlo Park, California. She lived here under three flags and helped found the eighth-largest city in the United States. During her lifetime, Juana was known and loved by many people because of her energy, her business sense and her concern for others. Even so, today she is still relatively unknown, but more people deserve to know about her. In San Francisco, she is commemorated at the northeast corner of Washington Square near her once her dairy farm. A historical plaque is on a bench at the bottom of The Lyon Street steps. In Palo Alto, her memory is preserved by the Juana Briones Elementary School, Juana Briones Park, and several street names incorporating either Miranda or first names of her children.    Queens of the Mines is brought to you by Youreka Productions.

In this episode, we chat with Scott Hicks, VP of Corporate Development & Communications for Luminex Resources, a Vancouver-based Canadian & precious metals exploration and development company focusing on a Gold and Copper project in Ecuador. Over the last decades, Scott has worked on a variety of equity, debt, and advisory assignments in Canada and Australia. He talks about the company, its projects, and the general outlook for commodities. Luminex Resources is one of Ross Beaty's development companies so be sure to listen.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Luminex has the largest gold deposit in Ecuador, one of the biggest in the world, which also contains billions of pounds of copper. In 2022, the focus is their gold drilling programs and are advancing permitting for their vanadium and other projects. Their Ecuador-based partners include Anglo American and JOGMEC. Much of Ecuador has not been thoroughly explored using modern techniques. In 2013/14, the government began to actively encourage mining once again. The infrastructure in Ecuador is excellent, with good roads, hydropower, modern port facilities, and plenty of water. Many communities welcome mining, but in certain areas, there is some resistance. There is potential for more vanadium redox battery usage, so Luminex has a small company targeting that metal. Vanadium batteries don´t degrade, which makes a leasing model viable, that reduces the upfront costs involved in their use. Luminex has a good mix of assets in mining-friendly jurisdictions. The price outlook for gold is positive. In the podcast, Scott explains why he believes that is the case. With copper, grades from existing mines are degrading and new facilities are not coming on stream fast enough to meet demand. So, the copper price should remain strong. The company is also investing in and incubating other people´s mining projects. Examples of which are shared in the podcast.   BEST MOMENTS ‘We are sitting at about 17 million ounces of gold right now and about 2.2 billion pounds of copper. ´ ‘In Ecuador, the permitting process… is actually pretty fast.' ‘It´s early days in the vanadium space... but we´ve seen prices north of $600 a tonne for pig iron.'   EPISODE RESOURCES Websites: https://luminagold.com/ https://luminexresources.com/ https://strategic-res.com/   Twitter: @Scott_ITBM @lumina_gold @LuminexRes @StrategicRes   VALUABLE RESOURCES Email: rob@mining-international.org Website: https://www.mining-international.org/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/MiningRobTyson Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DigDeepTheMiningPodcast/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theminingpodcast/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/DigDeepTheMiningPodcast/videos   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is an established recruiter in the mining and quarrying sector and decided to produce the “Dig Deep” The Mining Podcast to provide valuable and informative content around the mining industry.
