Paringa Resources in rampup mode at Poplar Grove coal mine

first_imgParinga Resources says production ramp-up at its Poplar Grove coal mine in the Illinois Coal Basin of Kentucky, US, has begun with the commencement of higher productivity, continuous underground mining operations.Raw coal is being brought to the surface and has been processed by Poplar Grove’s coal handling preparation plant (CHPP), the company reported.The commencement of mining using company-operated equipment follows approval from the US Mining Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) for the recently amended development ventilation scheme, the company said.Mining to date at Poplar Grove has been undertaken by Paringa’s mining contractor as part of the bottom development using drill and blast techniques. These development activities have included creating a void for the installation of underground infrastructure at the bottom of the slope and a turnout area to enable the efficient movement of underground mining equipment. “This mining activity has produced raw coal which has been run through the CHPP as part of the testing and commissioning of the surface infrastructure,” Paringa said.The mining contractor’s last piece of work is to undertake 80 ft (24 m) of development mining via drill and blast over the next month, which will occur in tandem with Paringa’s operational teams.The next underground mining development activity is the connection of the return and intake air shafts to establish the permanent ventilation system. The connection is being made by Paringa-owned continuous miners in the coal seam, from the turnout to the base of the intake shaft and then to the base of the return shaft. This mining is producing raw coal for processing and subsequent sale to Paringa’s cornerstone customer LG&E. Paringa commenced this activity using the recently commissioned company-operated mining equipment, it said.Paringa said: “The bottom area ground conditions look good with slightly less water and a more competent roof than was expected, although initial mining with the continuous miner has encountered an area of very hard rock which will slow advancement marginally only in the very near term.“Once the permanent ventilation system has been established, the company will commence a typical underground room and pillar mining sequence. All other underground infrastructure, including the bottom sump, temporary slope belt tailpiece and tramp iron magnet, will be commissioned in the coming month to enable the commissioning of the ventilation system needed to begin the room and pillar mining sequence, subject to customary MSHA permanent ventilation system approvals.The company is targeting delivery of first processed coal to LG&E in the second half of March, and has progressed initial shipments activities, including a 2019 shipping schedule and invoicing and payment procedures.On surface, the CHPP is fully commissioned and has been run several times, processing raw material from the mine, with feed comprised of raw coal and waste rock material, Paringa said. “The proportion of raw coal in the plant feed will significantly increase in the coming weeks as mining activities continue using the company operated continuous miner in the coal seam as part of establishing the permanent ventilation system.”Initial raw coal stockpile development has commenced using material produced by company-operated mining equipment, conveyed from the underground mine portal to the preparation plant stockpile area.All other surface infrastructure including the workshops, bath house and river dock has been commissioned.last_img read more

Theres a New Place to Buy Latino Literature in Houston

first_img 00:00 /02:27 – / 4The sun is setting outside, but the excitement is just beginning inside the Talento Bilingüe de Houston Community Center just east of downtown.Teenagers are stringing up colorful lights above a small stage.  Music and laughter fill the room to the side, where people are hanging up tote bags bearing pictures of Frida Kahlo. Pink shelves line one of the walls.A new bookstore is coming to Houston’s East End.“We were here over the weekend painting shelves, so it’s unglamorous work right now,” says Tony Diaz, the founder of the literary non-profit, Nuestra Palabra: Latino Writers Having Their Say. Until now, they’ve never had a physical location to sell books.“People have said that downtown Houston was a book desert,” Diaz says. “We’ve just created an oasis.”They’re calling the place Nuestra Palabra Books and Art. It’ll feature works by and about Latinos, including local authors whose books may be hard to find in the big-name bookstores.“Like Marie Elena Cortes,” Diaz explains. “She has a book called Neglected by Two Countries. It’s about kids who’ve been kind of caught in the immigration system and it’s their personal stories.”The store had its soft opening inside Talento Bilingüe last week. They’re waiting for the green light from the city to knock out part of an inside wall to make room for a counter, then the grand opening will follow. It’s not just a place to pick up a book. They’ll also serve coffee and sell art.“Our community really needs a cool little bookstore to come chill at because these are serious, heavy duty times,” Diaz says. “And I think now, more than ever, we do need a place where we’re not by political party and we’re not going to bully people. We’re going to celebrate people.”Diaz says they plan to host nationally-published authors for readings at least once a month, alongside community writers.“I think this is a great place for everybody to meet on a common, even ground,” he says. “Meet us in person, have a good time or take some books away. A lot of times, folks come up to me and say, ‘Hey, what are some books that can tell me about the Latino experience?’”So far, there are about 500 books in stock, with room to grow to about 2,000. Someday, it may be even more than that.“We would love to have the issue where we have to expand, but we haven’t even officially opened yet,” Diaz says with a laugh. “So, it’s kind of one thing at a time.”The grand opening of Nuestra Palabra Books and Art is set to take place sometime before Christmas.

Survey Shows Room for Mortgage Business Expansion at Banks

first_imgSurvey Shows Room for Mortgage Business Expansion at Banks Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Confidence Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Applications Processing Profits Regulation Service Providers 2012-10-22 Tory Barringer Share in Data, Government, Origination, Servicingcenter_img Banks may be missing out on an opportunity to expand their mortgage business by a substantial portion, according to a consumer mortgage study conducted by “”Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group””: (CG).[IMAGE]The group conducted a survey to gauge consumer thoughts on their concerns about the mortgage process and what kind of features would attract their business; it also announced it is hosting a “”webinar””: November 15 to discuss the findings.The survey showed 39 percent of respondents have their mortgage with their primary bank (the bank with which they conduct most of their business), while 70 percent would prefer to have their mortgages with one of their major banks. CG said that gap may represent an opportunity for a 79 percent increase in business.What’s more, when asked if they would be willing to pay more on their mortgage if it went through their primary bank, 39 percent responded positively.According to the survey, cost is the biggest factor for consumers when it comes to new mortgages and refinancing-84 percent rated cost as one of the five most important factors in the mortgage process. Customer service was another major factor (rated in the top three). A little more than a third of consumers said they would be willing to pay more for a mortgage if the customer service experience was top-quality. [COLUMN_BREAK]Of those respondents, 52 percent said they would pay more just to be able to complete the process more easily.As far as consumer complaints go, high interest rates, high payments, and taxes and escrow are the top three most frustrating issues regarding current mortgages. The slow process was another concern, with 56 percent of consumers saying slow execution is one of the most painful aspects about applying for a mortgage.Other complaints were related to customer service: Untrustworthy advice was a problem for 26 percent of consumers, while 32 percent said their lender was difficult to communicate with. Nearly a third said it was too difficult (or impossible) to track the status of their mortgage application.Tom Mataconis, VP of consulting at CG, said the survey results paint a clear picture of how lenders can improve their business.””Banks must align to customer values to win mortgage market share,”” Mataconis said. “”CG believes that banks who focus on trust and customer service as differentiators will gain market share in the new normal. Low cost is simply table stakes.””In other areas, the idea of industry regulation doesn’t have many consumers excited, it seems: Only 23 percent of respondents believe regulatory changes will have a positive impact on their next mortgage, while the remainder believe changes in regulation will have a negative impact, if any, on the process.The survey also showed some optimism for the housing market. Only 4 percent of respondents expect housing values to decline over time, while 46 percent expect their home values will grow significantly and should deliver “”significant financial return.”” More than half of respondents still consider their home to be their most important investment, especially those whose family incomes are under six figures.

Cyprus initiates EUCommonwealth agriculture discussion

first_imgA roundtable discussion for the enhancement of the cooperation between the EU and the Commonwealth on agriculture, climate change, the blue economy and trade was organised in London earlier this week by the Cyprus High Commission in the UK.The discussion was held in association with the Royal Commonwealth Society and it featured as the main speaker the Cypriot Minister of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment Nicos Kouyialis.

Attorneygeneral will ask for pardon for man who stole to feed grandson

first_imgAttorney-General Costas Clerides said on Thursday he would ask the president to authorise the write off of a €250 fine the Larnaca district court imposed on a 70-year-old man who had stolen a packet of chicken breast from a supermarket to feed his grandson.The sentencing of the man caused uproar, with people saying it was an unfair and cruel measure to take against the pensioner.The man was ordered earlier in the week to pay the fine after being found guilty of stealing last July the €6.40 pack of chicken to feed his diabetic grandson, who is under his care.The man reportedly told the court that he was forced to steal as his pension had not arrived on time and he had no money to buy food.The court heard that the man hid the pack under his shirt, but on his way out was stopped by a shop employee who had seen what he had done.“It was a moment of shame for me. My pension had not arrived and I could not pay for it. I was forced to steal. My grandson suffers from diabetes and can only eat chicken. I could not bear to watch him go hungry,” the man was quoted as telling the court by daily Politis.The daily also reported that the attorney-general’s office was asked for its opinion, which led to the man being prosecuted.Clerides said on Thursday, however, that he was never consulted on the matter and that in cases of petty offences police act on their own initiative.“They should however, exercise discretion and ask instructions for such cases,” Clerides told Sigmalive.He added that courts too, ought to take into consideration all parameters in their rulings.“Taking into consideration all the facts that have come to our knowledge in retrospect, this is a sad case. Our intention is to ask the president to grant a pardon by writing off the imposed fine,” he said. Only the president, he said, has the tight to order such a thing following the suggestion of the attorney-general.Clerides said his office receives daily requests for debt write-offs from people who are unable to pay, or for suspension of imprisonment orders and other affairs.“In cases when serious humanitarian reasons arise, our interference is positive and prompt,” Clerides said.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
