Sample text

It took till the summer of 1995 to have installed pumping capacity of over 6 million gallons per day so as to stop water decanting from the Nangiles adit except at times of excessive wet weather. Though no one was physically hurt, the damage to fisheries and the tourist industry ran on for many years at an incalculable cost. The cost of the emergency treatment of the minewaters and their ongoing treatment regime are the financial liability of the Environment Agency and the UK tax payer; the mining company having gone into liquidation.

In reality though, once the weeks have passed and the media have dropped the story from their headliners, it is usual for the issue to be shelved. The need to ‘over regulate’ a sector that is only operating in an area to extract a commodity, and will move away once that commodity has been removed, is felt to be temporary and in reality a nuisance rather than a long term regulatory concern. This aspect of governmental thinking appertains to gravel extraction as it does to coal and other mining. This arrangement is remarkable when quarries are usually extended or the deep coal mines can have lives of up to a century or, as in the UK, much longer.

Two of these schemes still operational today are Angren in Uzbekistan and Yuzhno in Russia. In the UK a seam was set alight in Derbyshire, during the 1950s. The problem that developed was to put the conflagration out; which was eventually managed by open casting the site to physically remove the coal from around the burning seam. This project was located at El Tremedal, a remote rural location near Alcaniz. The intention was to burn a seam of deep coal in situ, thus testing the foreseen needs of directional drilling and all the allied technology that the partners in the project needed to assess.
