Every year, it seems, there emerges some new sales philosophy or methodology. Perhaps this is part of the sales energy-renewal process: some new approach to selling, preached with the fervour of a new religion by its evangelists (consultants). Some of the popular ones include Miller Heiman, Solution Selling, Selling with Integrity, ROI Selling, PoV Selling, Value$elling, Cluster Selling, SPIN Selling, the Complex Sale for large opportunities, Viral Marketing (to the Long Tail) and even WOMBAT Selling. Yet amidst all these options, sales efforts are often wasted unwittingly without adequate measures of effectiveness, nor use of any systems to support recycling of prospects.
Cut-Off Wall - Abandoned Mine Tailings Pond - Case Study
ProblemAt an abandoned mine in the Yukon Territory, mining for both Gold and Zinc took place until the mid 1950`s, with the processing of the ore taking place on the banks of an adjacent lake. Processing methods resulted in the creation of a large mine tailings pond that had high concentrations of iron, arsenic, zinc and lead. Spring runoff and summer rainfall then infiltrated through the pond resulting in contamination of the lake with heavy metals. The lake is a primary source of drinking water and the prevention...
Case study - Polyphosphates for in situ uranium immobilization
INFORMATIONCarus Corporation has a long history of developing and providing a variety of permanganate products for chemical oxidation applications. Carus is also a leading provider of phosphate products for sequestration and corrosion control. Phosphates are widely used as water treatment chemicals (dry or liquid solutions) to correct problems resulting from inorganic groundwater contaminants (iron, manganese, calcium, etc.) and also to maintain water quality (inhibit corrosion, scale, biofilm, reduce lead and...

Analysis of Highly Mineralized Aqueous Solutions by ICP-AES
Environmental Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) methods, such as EPA 200.7 or SW846 Method 6010, expect that samples will be fairly dilute without an overabundance of dissolved constituents (less than 2000 ppm Total Dissolved Solids). Laboratories running mine-impacted waters, such as acid rock drainage from exposed copper tailings, or mineral digests of a “waste” sample (that is actually ore) may run Method 200.7 or 6010 as written. They do this to remain in compliance, but in doing so may get incorrect...
Are mining waste disasters inevitable?
On 5 November 2015 the dam of an iron ore tailings management facility in Bento Rodrigues, Brazil, suffered a catastrophic failure and flooded the area. The immediate consequences were dire: the accident killed at least 11 people, injured over a dozen more and left more than 500 people homeless. However, this is just the start: the environmental impact of the Bento Rodrigues dam disaster, with some 50 million tons of iron ore waste escaping into the River Doce, is expected to be immense. The waste, containing...
