Tribes: Feds have no choice but to stop mining in Penokees | Superior Telegram | Superior, Wisconsin

Tribes: Feds have no choice but to stop mining in Penokees | Superior Telegram | Superior, Wisconsin | Mining | Scoop.it

Tribal leaders in northern Wisconsin are requesting federal government intervention to stop mining activity in the Penokees. They’re doing that because they say the clock is running out to protect the ceded territory.

 

One factor is a Senate bill that could make 5½ square miles in mining areas off-limits to the public. Bad River Tribal Chairman Mike Wiggins says this would kick tribal biologists off the area they’re obligated to protect.

“We’ve seen enough now to understand that state legislators are willing to pressure scientists, are willing to try and restrict access to publicly accessible places that are critical for the data and the objective data-gathering and analysis that are going to be necessary to paint a picture of this eco-system,” he said.

 

Six tribal leaders ask in the letter to President Obama to stop mining activities to protect the ceded territory. But Republican State Senator Tom Tiffany of Hazelhurst, one of the sponsors of the “off-limits” bill, says this is not a place for the feds.

 

“Well, I sure hope the President doesn’t come in and usurp the state’s ability to manage its natural resources because that’s something the federal government has always delegated to the states,” Tiffany said.

But Wiggins says the difference is, this is state land in the ceded territory, so the U.S. government must act.

 

“In real time right now, we know what we need and we need intervention because of all of the efforts to obscure and cloud over GTac’s activities in the hydrology and the science of this site,” he said. “We expect from a trust responsibility perspective, we expect the federal government to be there for us and to honor those treaties.”

FAST Market Research has downgraded some of its growth forecasts for the Namibian Mining Industry to account for the current economic environment and the sharp crash in uranium prices experienced over 2013.
Alexandria Goodyk's insight:

This article is about the FAST market research has downgraded its growth forecasts for the Namibian mining industry so they can account for the current economic environment. They expect Namibia's mining industry to reach US$1,30 billion by 2017. 2012 saw increased speculation leading to possible introduction of a super tax on mining activity in Namibia, regarding to the possibility of friction with both the government and the independent Chamber of Mines. Miners agreed to a common super tax on all operations across the mining sector in lieu of a suggested government surcharge on the profits of some companies during times of the economic growth. New followed lobbying by the Chamber of Mines in 2011. That followed in the government aborting plans to gain the corporate income tax rate for the non diamond mining sector from 37,5% to 44%. The mining in Namibia keeps their eyes on on diamonds, uranium and base metals such as copper, lead and zinc.

How A 'Deviant' Philosopher Built Palantir, A CIA-Funded Data-Mining Juggernaut

How A 'Deviant' Philosopher Built Palantir, A CIA-Funded Data-Mining Juggernaut | Mining | Scoop.it
How a self-described "deviant" philosopher turned Palantir into a terrorist tracking, all-seeing, multi-billion dollar data mining machine.

Alexandria Goodyk's insight:

This article is about a guy who turned Palantir into a terrorist tracking, multi-billion dollar data mining machine. This guy's maching is meant to protect him from extremists who have sent him death threats and conspiracy theorists who have called Palantir to complain about the Illuminati. A CIA-funded firm run by an eccentric philosopher has become one of the most valuable private companies in tech, which costs between $5 billion and $8 billion in a round of funding the company is currently pursuing. The guy is named Karp and he owns a tenth of the firm–just less than its largest stakeholder, Peter Thiel, the PayPal and Facebook billionaire. The biggest problem about this business is about how well this all actually works, like his software. It helps the customers see too much, they say.

From this article it helped me realize that even if you try and stop illegal mining, it's most likely not going to stop happening because once you bust a group of illegal miners, they move to a different place to do it. I think it's important that they have this article on here because it not only warns people about illegal mining, it just shows that even if we try making a difference and stoping the bad things from happening, people still find a way to do it. I didn't realize how important mining actually is to us. The woman that were mining were warned that they would be arrested even if they had a baby on their back.
