Brazils environmental regulatory agency, Ibama, announced last Friday that it was denying French oil company Total license to drill for oil near the Amazon Reef. The reef system, discovered off the coast of Amap state in northern Brazil in 2016, is known as the Amazon Reef because it lies in the turgid waters of the Atlantic Ocean close to the mouth of the Amazon River. The system of corals, sponges, and a colorful marine algae that resembles coral called rhodoliths extends from French Guiana to Brazils Maranho State and encompasses 9,500 square kilometers (nearly 3,700 square miles). Fabiano Thompson of Brazils Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, who was part of the team of scientists that made the discovery, told Mongabay at the time that the oceanographic conditions of the Amazon Reef are not found anywhere else on the planet, making it an entirely unique ecosystem. Total sought to drill for oil in the Foz do Amazonas Basin, which has been estimated to contain as much as 14 billion barrels of oil. The French oil giant was leading a group of companies, including the UKs BP and Brazils state-owned oil company Petrobras, that acquired the rights to five exploration blocks in the basin in a 2013 auction. BP is reportedly still trying to secure a license to drill in the Foz do Amazonas Basin on its own.

The truth is that our country is at a crisis point. If we do not correct some very serious faults and failures in how we approach the extraction of resources such as minerals, gas and oil we will not only continue to fail to deliver progress to our people, we will put the very survival of our country at peril.

Nautilus has multiple problems, including the loss of an expensive ship
The Economist | December 5 2018
AFTER LISTING on the Toronto stock exchange in 2006 Nautilus Minerals became the public face of a daring new industry: deep-sea mining. It planned to pursue riches on the ocean floor, mining metals such as gold, zinc and copper, desired respectively for lustre, alloys and electronics. Robotic machines would cut, grind and gather volcanic rock at a site called Solwara 1, located 1,600 metres beneath the surface of the Bismarck Sea near Papua New Guinea (PNG). The resultant rocky slurry would be pumped up to a support vessel, then shipped to a site at which the metals could be extracted. Investors were convinced; Nautiluss shares doubled from their initial price of C$2 ($1.80) in a few months.
Today a Nautilus share is worth just a few Canadian cents. Three problems have changed sentiment. First, the firm has had substantial contractual trouble with...
A Honduran court has convicted seven men in the murder of indigenous rights activist Berta Cceres in 2016.
Until her death on March 2, 2016, Cceres had been leading a fierce campaign against the Agua Zarca dam in western Honduras, a joint project between the Honduran company Desarrollos Energticos SA (DESA) and Chinese-owned Sinohydro. The dam was being built on the Gualcarque River without consultation with the Lenca indigenous community that depends on the river for their food and water.
Cceres, who won the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize in 2015, had received numerous threats for her activism against the dam before she was killed by gunmen at her home in the city of La Esperanza. Mexican environmentalist Gustavo Castro was also shot, but he survived the attack.
Those found guilty of her murder are Sergio Ramn Rodrguez Orellana, manager of DESA; Douglas Geovanny Bustillo, a former soldier and ex-security chief of DESA; Mariano Daz Chvez, an army major; Henry Javier Hernndez; Edwin Rapalo; Edilson Duarte Meza; and Oscar Torres. An eighth defendant, Emerson Duarte, accused of covering up the crime, was acquitted.
To date, nine people have been arrested in connection with Cceress murder. David Castillo Meja, executive president of DESA, was charged with being the mastermind of the murder in March this year. He will face a separate trial.
Cceress family, along with Gustavo Castro; COPINH, the organization that Cceres led; and their legal teams have released a...
UPDATE: 6 Dec. Nautilus Minerals is reported to have been referred to the Toronto stock exchange for misleading investors over the fate of its mining vessel which it is claimed has already been sold to a third party despite Nautilus claims below that it is preparing to buy the ship.

The purpose of the new firm, Nautilus said, would be to fund the acquisition of the Production Support Vessel (PSV) that Nautilus had previously arranged to be procur...
An independence referendum and unresolved issues over the rich Panguna copper mine threaten to tilt Papua New Guineas tumultuous autonomous island back to civil war
Alan Boyd | Asia Times | December 4, 2018
Foreign mining companies are jostling for exploration rights on the Papua New Guinea island of Bougainville ahead of a crucial independence vote next year that some fear could revive tensions that sparked a civil war that killed 20,000 in the 1980s.
The island will need mining royalties to maintain a viable economy if the referendum backs independence, but unresolved issues over the Panguna copper mine are still a sensitive point with traditional landowners. Villagers shut the pit down in 1989, triggering the previous lethal conflict.
The referendum is the culmination of the Bougainville Peace Agreement, which formally ended the decade-long bloody civil war. It will take place as the US and Australia aim to work closely with Papua...

Canadian miner K92 has found new ore and is ramping up its operations at its Kainantu mine in Papua New Guineas Eastern Highlands Province. In this exclusive interview, Chief Executive John Lewins tells Business Advantage PNG that the company is now profitable and has an anticipated mine life of over 15 years.
New ore discoveries are at the heart of Kainantus current health. When the mine was bought by K92 from Barrick Gold in 2015, John Lewins says the focus was initially on restarting mining operations on the Irumafimpa ore body.
The expectation in the previous owners original design was that this would yield about 20 grams of gold per tonne, but it was closer to 8.5 grams.
It was still pretty good but, when you are expecting 20, it is not so good, he tells Business Advantage PNG.
It was recognised that this ore body was also relatively difficult mining, in terms of...

Mining Minister Johnson Tuke told
the Mining and Petroleum Conference in Sydney that proposed
amendments to the Mining Act (1992) will be made next year.
He said this despite previous indication of last month being the sitting that would introduce the proposed amendments.
Citing concerns from the industry and the need for independent review from within government circles, he said the amendment would still take place nonetheless citing an over 9 years consultative period.
One of the principle priority for my ministry was to ensure the proposed mining bill is introduced in parliament in the November session in accordance with the NEC decision No 8 of 2018, he said.
The ministry had put together a working team comprising the Department of Mineral Policy and Geohazards Management, the Mineral Resources Authority, the Department of Treasury and the Office of the State Solicitor and the First Legislative Council under the oversight of the Chief Secretary to Government to prepare the min...

Negotiating a better deal for Papua New Guinea will be the mantra for the National Government as it looks to finalizing some major projects within the Extractive Industries in the months ahead.
Prime Minister Peter ONeill made these comments when speaking to EMTV News on Day one of the 2018 PNG Mining & Petroleum Investment Conference.
Addressing the opening session of the PNG Mining & Petroleum Investment Conference, Prime Minister Peter ONeill elaborated on the efforts by his government in pushing for better deals for upcoming projects within the mining and gas space.
His comments on the back of concerns regarding the perceived unfair distribution of wealth from existing projects operating in PNG.
According to Mr ONeill, the lessons from current projects will not be repeated, with the National Government aiming to ensure that the country receives a better deal, financially, but more importantly, socially, through respective project agreements.
A major aspect of upcoming projects that the government is keen to complete, is the all-important landowner and clan-vetting exercise, especially within the gas sector...
Radio New Zealand | 4 December 2018
A landowners group in Papua New Guineas highlands region is suing the national government for $US13.28 billion over a breach of contract.
The Justice Foundation for Porgera and other landowners whose land is inside the boundaries of the Porgera gold mine are behind the suit.
They claim that Barrick Nuigini, a subsidiary of Canadian mining giant Barrick Gold, has destroyed their environment and livelihoods, and has not kept to the commitments made in the contract signed in 1989.
The Foundations Jonathan Paraia said the amount of money they are seeking is justified.
That is based on the contract for Porgera Mine signed between the state and Porgera landowners, but the state has got its own agreement with the Candian mining company, Barrick. So we expect the g...
[ Climatic clippings no 9 in 2018 ]
2018 was the year when words of emergency, breakdown, collapse and extinction started ringing in our ears with more disturbing clarity than ever before, but even so, the destruction of our climate continued as if no one was listening.
Plan A for how humanity could solve the climate crisis through the UN system and governmental negotiation and regulation turned out to be catastrophically inefficient and insufficient to deal with this challenge.
Through 2018, the scientific climate assessments have told us the same story in report after report after report: The problem is still getting worse, the risks keep increasing. This is an existential crisis. We are sleepwalking into a man-made disaster.
While most governments fail to act on the emergency, community leaders, artists and even media are increasingly raising their voices about the madness in this suicidal situation.
2018 showed new signs that the time may finally have come for Plan P which, if we think about it, actually is the only plan through-out history that has enabled humans to create fast turnarounds at a society-wide level: People power.
Guests in The Sustainable Youth Hour on 28 November 2018 are three students from Sacred Heart Collage in Geelong, just back from a sustainability camp, and four English language students from Deakin University in Geelong: Yuya, Mami and Nanami from Japan, and Charlie from Vietnam.
We interview Laura Kelly and Jude Corbett, students at Kardinia International College, about why they mobilised a school strike for climate action in Geelong on 23 November 2018.
We meet Kerri Jenkins, teacher at St Josephs College in Geelong, who talks about whats required to make a sustainability program become a success in the school. She calls her recipe FICAS: Ensuring that the program is Fun and is Focused on Incentive, delivers Comparable data, is Achieveable dream big, but make sure it is achievable! and has the necessary Support from the principal, the school board and other key people in the school.
We bring Lene Foghsgaards second Sustainable People segment, which today is about Black Friday.
We kick the hour off with short statements by Prime Minister Scott Morr...
