Safety.BLR.com Helps Employers with this Challenge: How to Deliver Required OSHA Training to a Growing Population of Hispanic Workers

Safety.BLR.com has just created a Spanish Resources Center to help employers keep up with the challenge of keeping a rapidly growing multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s safety and health requirements.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Experts at OSHA recognize the problem, but busy employers are the ones trying to cope with it. Immigrants make up an estimated 14 percent of the U.S. workforce, and nearly half of them are considered to have limited proficiency in English. That translates into a big challenge for employers: how to keep a multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s stringent safety and health requirements.

Fortunately for employers, Safety.BLR.com, the website for safety professionals that makes training and compliance easier, has just created a Spanish Resources Center at http://safety.blr.com/spanish.cfm. The Center includes Spanish training handouts and quizzes on 54 OSHA topics. It also features news, white papers, forms, guidance documents, regulatory activity, and agency directives and interpretations to help manage occupational safety and health for the Spanish-speaking workforce.

Steve Quilliam, editor at Safety.BLR.com, commented on the site’s new Resources Center: “OSHA requires companies to make sure their employees understand safety training and follow OSHA requirements. That obligation doesn’t change if their employees have a limited understanding of English. So with its prewritten training materials and handouts, our new Spanish Resources Center can be a helpful solution to this challenge.”

The 54 training topics in the Resources Center include Spanish handouts and quizzes on confined spaces, defensive driving, electrical safety, and eye protection.

Research and Markets: Chinese Metal Industry Examined

Research and Markets (researchandmarkets.com/reports/c13994) has announced the addition of China Metal Industry (2004) to their offering.

(PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c13994) has announced the addition of China Metal Industry (2004) to their offering.

China will further encourage foreign businesses to invest in developing the country's mineral resources and promote the exchange of domestic and foreign resources, capital, information, technologies and markets on the basis of mutual benefit.

China began to open its oil industry to the outside world in 1982 by using foreign capital and technology to prospect and exploit oil and gas resources. As a result, the range of exploitation has been extended, and the output of crude oil has risen by big margins.

China issued three major policies in 1999, 2000 and 2002, making it clear that the government will give greater financial support to foreign investors. It encourages overseas companies to make technical innovations, increase domestic urchases and invest in the central and western egions. The government will also improve the anagement and services for foreign-funded firms.

As for other mineral resources, China issued a ajor policy on encouraging foreign investment in exploring and exploiting these minerals in October 2000. It opens the prospecting and mining rights market further to foreign companies, as they are allowed to set up wholly owned subsidiaries to start to prospect these resources, besides teaming up with Chinese partners.

In the future, China will pay more attention to introducing technology, management knowledge and talents from overseas into the mineral sector, instead of focusing only on luring foreign capital, it said. The country will also encourage foreign firms to invest in the service and trading segments of mineral sector, while in the past foreign investors are welcomed only to the prospecting and mining segments.

The government will abolish administrative regulations and rules that are incompatible with WTO rules.

These newsletters will give readers an outline of the development trends in these industries and markets.

Topics covered include:
- Tax return removal to hit aluminium sector
- Export tax on metals
- Steel sector to open up further
- Zhongfu Industry to raise aluminum output
- CNMC to explore Malaysian mines
- Luxembourg, China agree to enhance economic ties
- China Minmetals sees aluminium output slowing down next year
- Gold sector witnesses big profit rise
- China copper demand to remain very strong
- Australia to raise iron ore supply to China
- BHP Gears up Iron Ore Supply to China
- Five Mills Closured in Tangshan for Breaking Environmental Protection Law
- HeBei Province Reducing Steel Output 7 million tons
- China Minetals to forge partnership with Chilean giant
- Tata Steel to Enter China and Southeast Asia Through M&A;
- Great Breakthrough on Mining Industry in Yunnan
- Baosteel eyes giant of 50mln tons production capacity by 2010
- Baosteel to issue 5 billion shares

Doe Run Peru Land Transfer Makes Way For La Oroya Bus Terminal

The City of La Oroya, Peru, recently announced that it is moving forward with plans to build a much-needed bus terminal on land granted to the city by Doe Run Peru, a subsidiary of The Doe Run Company.

ST. LOUIS (March 17, 2022) – The City of La Oroya, Peru, recently announced that it is moving forward with plans to build a much-needed bus terminal on land granted to the city by Doe Run Peru, a subsidiary of The Doe Run Company. The City will finance the construction, expected to cost approximately 2 million soles (equivalent to approximately $600,000)

The mayor of La Oroya, Clemente Quincho, publicly thanked Doe Run Peru for its involvement in the development and said, “Our people have waited many years for a bus terminal. Today is an historic day for La Oroya, which will soon be crystallized with a great project – one of the best in the region.”

According to Juan Carlos Huyhua, vice president and operations manager of Doe Run Peru, the new bus terminal – which has been in the works for more than a year – responds to requests from the people of La Oroya. Regional and long-haul buses currently stop and idle on the main street of La Oroya, creating significant congestion and safety risks, as well as fumes that contribute to air pollution.

“The terminal will also provide a significant new source of employment, as La Oroya is a natural stopping point for long-distance buses,” Huyhua added. “Services are needed for the many passengers who will transit through the terminal. We hope this effort will greatly benefit the city, by helping to improve transport services for the people of La Oroya.”

Last June, Doe Run Peru transferred 7,300 square meters of land to the municipality, to be used for transport services and a regional bus terminal. In addition to the land transfer, the company also assisted by removing old structures from the building site and leveling the terrain with heavy machinery.

The Doe Run Company, along with its subsidiaries, is a privately held natural resource company focused on environmentally sound mineral production, recycling and metals fabrication. Based in St. Louis, the company and its subsidiaries serve as North America’s largest integrated lead producer and third-largest total lead producer worldwide, employing more than 4,000 people. The company and its employees are committed to keeping its operations and communities clean and safe while producing essential raw materials – lead, zinc, copper, gold and silver – that are needed for everyday life. Doe Run and its subsidiaries have U.S. operations in Missouri, Washington and Arizona, and South American operations in Peru. For more information, please visit http://www.doerun.com

“Pulse On America” to Feature American Iron & Steel Institute

Despite intense material competition, steel content in an automobile remains at 55 percent. The development and use of high-strength and advanced high-strength steels are keeping steel competitive with its aluminum, plastic, composite and cast iron counterparts.

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 4, 2022 -- Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce the selection of American Iron & Steel Institute for its innovative, educational television series, Pulse On America. The company will be featured in a segment on “The Future of Automotive Design” in the Technology Today for Tomorrow Series.

The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) serves as the voice of the North American steel industry in the public policy arena and advances the case for steel in the marketplace as the preferred material of choice. The Automotive Applications Committee (AAC) is a subcommittee of the Market Development Committee of American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) that focuses on advancing the use of steel in the highly competitive automotive market. With offices and staff located in Detroit, cooperation between the automobile and steel industries has been significant to its success. This industry cooperation resulted in the formation of the Auto/Steel Partnership, a consortium of Daimler Chrysler AG, Ford Motor Co., General Motors Corp. and the member companies of the AAC.

Despite intense material competition, steel content in an automobile remains at 55 percent. The development and use of high-strength and advanced high-strength steels are keeping steel competitive with its aluminum, plastic, composite and cast iron counterparts. Because these next-generation steels are lighter but just as strong and affordable as their predecessors, they are being introduced into current market designs for body structures, closures, suspensions, crankshafts, steering knuckles, and other key components.

“The steel industry has been connected with the evolution of the automobile since the early 1900s,” said Ron Krupitzer, senior director, Automotive Applications, AISI. “Today our industry is reinventing itself much as the automotive industry is – by consolidating and continuing to focus on new technology. We want everyone connected with the development of new vehicles to see that new steel product and process technologies are key to developing safe, affordable, fuel efficient and environmentally responsible vehicles of the future.”

Introducing innovative steel technologies into vehicles was carried out through many different programs with technical initiatives and communications strategies, such as the ULSAB -AVC (ULSAB- Advanced Vehicle Concepts) program which was a proactive, steel-intensive initiative to respond to the automotive customers’ need for fuel-efficient vehicle design. The priority of the IMPACT program (Improved Materials and Powertrain Architectures for 21st Century Trucks) which is the U.S. Department of Defense investment-in-partnership with AISI and Ford Motor Company- on light- and medium-duty trucks, is to reduce weight, enhance performance, improve mobility and increase fuel economy of tactical trucks.

A recent report cited the top ten engines of 2004, from such major companies as BMW, Toyota, Honda, and General Motors, and all feature the prominent use of steel components. Steel offers strength, durability, mass efficiency and cost-effectiveness in their high-performance engines. For more information see www.steel.org

W.R. Grace Faces Asbestos Charges

W.R. Grace and seven top executives conspired to release asbestos and to hide health problems at its asbestos–contaminated vermiculite mine in Libby, Montana, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

(PRWEB) February 11, 2022 -- W.R. Grace and seven top executives conspired to release asbestos and to hide health problems at its asbestos–contaminated vermiculite mine in Libby, Montana, according to the U.S. Department of Justice (U.S. v. W.R. Grace & Co., U.S. Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, #03-35924). A grand jury indictment accuses the company of exposing its employees to asbestos, failing to disclose air monitoring results, interfering with an investigation by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and giving away asbestos–containing materials to schools and local residents. Charges include clean–air act violations and wire fraud as well as conspiracy.

From 1963 through 1990, Grace operated a vermiculite mine in Libby that was contaminated with asbestos. Used in soil conditioners and insulation, vermiculite is a metal ore that can be heated to form a light–weight, fire–resistant substance. The Libby vermiculite was shipped to factories throughout the nation, endangering workers who were exposed to asbestos during processing. It was formulated into a type of insulation that may be contained in millions of homes.

“The situation in Libby provides an example of the shameful treatment that many workers have received from asbestos-related industries,” said Alan Brayton, founding and senior partner of Brayton Purcell, a law firm representing asbestos victims. “Many people are not aware of the extent of the damage caused by asbestos. It is responsible for an aggressive cancer known as mesothelioma as well as for asbestosis, which is a painful scarring of the lungs. These diseases take decades to develop, and we may only be seeing the beginning of the problem.”

The Brayton Purcell law firm provides further details about vermiculite and the charges against Grace on its specialty web site, Asbestos Network, at http://www.asbestosnetwork.com/news/nw_020805_grace_indict.htm . The site also discusses asbestos-related diseases and asbestos exposure.

For over 20 years, Brayton Purcell has helped clients protect their legal rights in the face of devastating losses such as illness, injuries, and harm to family members. The law firm enjoys a national reputation for the high quality of its personal injury and product liability work, particularly in the area of asbestosis, mesothelioma, and other asbestos-related cancers.

Golden Eagle Receives Offer for Funding of $3.5 Million

Golden Eagle announced today that it has received a non-binding letter of intent for the investment of $3.5 million over the next eight months in equal monthly amounts from Polion do Brasil, S.A. (“Polion”), a Brazilian investment group.

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (PRWEB) February 2, 2022 -- Golden Eagle International, Inc. (OTCBB-MYNG)—January 31, 2005--- Golden Eagle announced today that it has received a non-binding letter of intent for the investment of $3.5 million over the next eight months in equal monthly amounts from Polion do Brasil, S.A. (“Polion”), a Brazilian investment group.

“We are extremely pleased that Polion has offered these substantial funds to Golden Eagle. We anticipate that these funds, once received, will allow us to cover current working capital requirements. We also anticipate that once we begin receiving this investment, we will be able to start the process of dismantling our Gold Bar mill and plant in preparation for shipping and re-erecting it on our Buen Futuro project in eastern Bolivia,” stated Terry C. Turner, Golden Eagle’s CEO. “Bringing the Buen Futuro gold and copper project on-line in 2005 is our highest priority. We intend to continue seeking additional debt financing of $10 million to complete the Buen Futuro project and bring the copper recovery circuit on faster than projected.”

In a Letter of Intent, Polion do Brasil, S.A., expressed its intention to invest $3.5 million in Golden Eagle by purchasing 3.5 million convertible preferred shares at $1.00 per share in eight equal monthly purchase amounts of $450,000. As these preferred shares are issued, they will earn a fixed annual dividend of 8% from their date of issue, which is also convertible to common shares. After a minimum holding period of one year on each monthly share purchase, Polion’s preferred shares may be converted to Golden Eagle common shares at 50% of the market price per share on the date of conversion, or $0.10 per share, whichever is greater. However, if Golden Eagle’s shares trade at $0.15 per share or less for the 15 trading days prior to conversion, then Polion may convert at 50% of the market price per share down to a minimum floor of $0.05 per share.

As long as Polion holds a minimum of 100,000 shares of preferred stock, it will be entitled to name one director to Golden Eagle’s Board of Directors. Based on discussions between Golden Eagle and Polion, Golden Eagle is optimistic that Polion will meet its investment commitment, however there are no guarantees that the funding offer will be completed as outlined.

Golden Eagle owns the Gold Bar mill and plant located in Eureka, Nevada. The Company has been preparing the engineering for the dismantling and re-erection of its mill and plant on its Buen Futuro site in Bolivia for the past six months, investing $500,000 in the process. Concurrently, Golden Eagle has carried out site preparations, surface rights acquisitions and infrastructure improvements on its Buen Futuro gold and copper deposit located 160 miles north of Santa Cruz, Bolivia, over the course of the past year.

The Buen Futuro project has current estimated proven and probable reserves of 84,000 troy ounces of gold and 82 million pounds of copper. However, the company believes that it can expand its proven and probable reserves with its projected drilling program within the zone of influence of its current reserves.

The company is still advancing its debt financing applications for $10 million with the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and the Andean Development Corporation (ADC). Golden Eagle’s CEO and CFO will be meeting with representatives of the ADC in La Paz this week.

‘We believe that our debt financing position is considerably enhanced by Polion’s expression of its intent to fund $3.5 million,” said Mr. Turner, the company’s CEO.

Golden Eagle also announced that it has discontinued its joint-venture with a small operator in the Tipuani Gold District. With the escalating price of diesel fuel and other operating costs, as well as the nature and size of the operation, Golden Eagle projected that the joint-venture was not going to achieve suitable returns.

Golden Eagle International, Inc. is a gold exploration and mining company located in Salt Lake City, Utah; and La Paz and Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The company is currently focusing its efforts on developing its mining rights on its Buen Futuro project within its 136,500 acres (213 square miles) in eastern Bolivia’s Precambrian Shield. Buen Futuro is projected to produce 5,900 troy ounces of gold and 4.4 million pounds of copper per month once brought on-line. The company also owns mining rights on 49,900 acres (77 square miles) in the Tipuani Gold District located in western Bolivia, which has produced 32 million ounces of gold in its known history. Golden Eagle is a mining company with a social conscience, having provided many humanitarian programs at its mine site, including the only hospital, doctor and nurse in Cangalli, Bolivia, for the past eight years, as well as having provided for the educational needs of the students of the area. The Company highly recommends that you review its disclosures, risk statements, previous press releases, annual reports, quarterly reports and current reports found at its website: www.geii.com

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Risks:
Some of the statements in this press release are forward-looking statements and as such are based on an assumed set of economic conditions and courses of action. These include the ability of Golden Eagle to obtain the necessary financing on reasonable terms, estimates of mineral reserves and future production levels, expectations regarding mine production costs, expected trends in mineral prices, and statements that describe Golden Eagle’s future plans, objectives or goals. There is a significant risk that actual results will vary, perhaps materially, from results projected depending on such factors as changes in general economic conditions and financial markets, changes in prices for gold and copper, technological and operational hazards in Golden Eagle’s mining and mine development activities, uncertainties inherent in the calculation of mineral reserves, mineral resources and metal recoveries, the timing and availability of financing, governmental and other approvals and other risk factors listed from time-to-time in Golden Eagle’s Form 10-K and its other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Golden Eagle disclaims any responsibility to update forward-looking statements made herein.

CanAlaska Ventures Ltd. Uranium Group Update

"We are well on our way to achieving our objective, which is simply to control one of the largest uranium exploration portfolios in the Athabasca Basin” - Harry Barr, Chairman of CanAlaska

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) January 27, 2022 -- CanAlaska Ventures Ltd "CanAlaska" www.canalaska.com (TSX Venture: CVV – OTCBB: CVVLF)

Dear Shareholders,
Our President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Peter Dasler is in New Zealand consulting with the financial sector and government authorities to determine the best course of action for CanAlaska’s gold properties in that region. These assets were the Company’s principal assets until we began our move to the Athabasca Basin last year. Mr. Dasler’s work is part of our strategic move to concentrate our focus on uranium exploration.

Since September 2004, our Company has assembled a significant land position and a competent and proven technical team. There has been a considerable amount of research done in the past on the prospective ground that our Company has acquired and assessment reports are being compiled and the data will be available over the next few months. Most of this exploration dates back to the 70’s and 80’s and has followed the classical graphite conductor model. We are considering other targets as well, in the Basin and in the basement.

Specifically our strategy will follow a three-pronged approach:
• In the East of the Basin we will explore for deposits at, and below, the unconformity, similar to Cigar Lake and McArthur River, but also like the Millenium deposit, which is deeper in the basement.

• In the West of the Basin we will explore an area that has seen very little or no exploration, but has the right geological environment to produce large unconformity uranium deposits.

• In the East we will explore for shear-hosted deposits similar to Eagle Point and other basement hosted unconformity-style deposits, in an area where many uranium showings were found in the late 70’s, but with little subsequent exploration.

In all three areas airborne and ground geophysics will be combined with summer prospecting and geochemistry to define the best targets for drilling to start in the winter 2005-2006. We have made a significant commitment to “Megatem” surveys that will be conducted by Fugro Airborne Surveys. These aerial surveys will be able to examine to depths of as much as 1,000 metres versus the historic capabilities of about 200 metres in the late 1970s.

Armed with a solid treasury and considerable prospective targets we believe that our research will attract attention from both junior exploration and producers companies. Uranium Facts include:

•Price rising steadily from under $8 per pound in the late 1990's to over $20 a pound.

•Saskatchewan produces approximately one-third of the world's Uranium mine output.

•Athabasca Basin, accounts for approximately 32% of the world’s uranium supply.

Atlas Mining Company Enters into Collaborative Agreement With NaturalNano Inc

Atlas Mining Company Enters into Collaborative Agreement With NaturalNano Inc after the sale of 500 tons of hallosite clay.

(PRWEB) January 21, 2022 -- Atlas Mining Company (ALMI) , announced today that the company has sold 500 tons of halloysite clay to NaturalNano Inc. and has agreed to collaborate in the development and implementation of a proprietary separation process. Atlas and its partner NanoDynamics will work closely with NaturalNano.

Atlas Mining was awarded the supply contract by NaturalNano Inc., a technology firm that develops new processing techniques and commercial applications of natural nanoscale materials. The supply agreement could make Atlas one of the world's largest providers of a unique mineral that contains natural nanotubes -- hollow tubes that are billionths of a meter in diameter. Researchers believe the natural nanotubes can become a central component of a new generation of nano-engineered products and technologies.

William Jacobson, CEO of Atlas Mining said, ''NaturalNano has taken a very serious interest in our unique halloysite due to its tubular structure. They specialize in processing systems for nano-size materials, and we think that by utilizing their system, we can create an even greater value for our product.'' NaturalNano has remitted an initial payment of $125,000 and will process the clay on-site at Atlas Mining's Dragon Mine in Juab County, Utah for its own use. ''The future value of this product is not yet known. However, we expect to realize over $500 per ton for this order and will end up with a processing method that will bring us even greater value,'' stated Jacobson. Atlas will have the right to license NaturalNano's proprietary separation process once completed.

The Dragon Mine halloysite clay contains naturally occurring halloysite nanotubes, based on an inorganic molecule composed of aluminum, silicon, hydrogen, and oxygen, which formed in the earth from hydrothermal alteration and surface weathering of aluminosilicate minerals. Like carbon nanotubes, halloysite nanotubes are long, hollow tubes, allowing them to store and deliver a variety of materials, with external diameters ranging from less than 100 nanometers (nm.) up to several microns (or micrometers) and internal diameters ranging from under 20 nm. to 200 nm. or more.

Unlike carbon nanotubes, naturally occurring halloysite nanotubes are inexpensive, readily available in quantity, environmentally benign, and safe and easy to process. Halloysite nanotubes don't clump together, making them ideal for use in electronic fabrication and other high-tech ceramic-composite applications. The potential marketplace for naturally occurring nanotubes crosses numerous industries, representing significant potential revenues.

''It is our intent to work directly with NaturalNano and NanoDynamics to provide industrial users with a refined and predictable nanotubular material,'' concluded Jacobson.
