Flooding of the shafts during building is a real risk. To stop flooding freezing or grouting can be used. The sandstone is quite "tight" with small pores, and water movement is mainly in cracks in the sandstone. When the boulby mine was built the first shaft was frozen and the second grouted. The frozen shaft flooded, and the grouted shaft was sunk breaking records. But grouted shafts also flood. One did last year in Russia. The other reason for grouting is that frozen shafts leak more when they unfreeze, even when fully lined. Sometimes the freezing is left on, but this costs. But the aim is to have a dry mine.
Good find Scotman…We knew they were telling porky pies last year but it's good to have a public confession. Someone should point this out to Mr France - noting that none of their fabricated objections about Poly being just a"niche" product have survived into their new objection to the revised application.
And if Mr France knows that ICL are proven liars then it should rightly call into question everything else they say about the application.
rangersranger, or should I call you scaremonger, are you actually involved in the discussions between the company and the EA, NP, YW, well I can answer that question for people here it's a big fat NO, may I suggest that you read in detail the letter from the EA to the planners all 26 pages in detail, in amongst that there is no reference to the tailings let you tell you why, there is none it whole of the product will be sent to Wilton for processing, as for the water ingress during shaft sinking again it's very clear YOU have not read the planning documents or being in any way whatsoever involved in the meetings and discussions between the party's involved, best get back downt pub and ask yer mates for an update pal, or actually read some documentation.
You obviously have not read what EA had to say, have you?
They are talking about the treatment of human waist - what we have to do from you each time you appear.
This show has a zero prospect of stopping - luckily for the locals, planning is about moderating impacts. Spend a moment comprehending this:
"116. Planning permission should be refused for major developments in these designated areas except in exceptional circumstances and where it can be demonstrated they are in the public interest. Consideration of such applications should include an assessment of: the need for the development, including in terms of any national considerations, and the impact of permitting it, or refusing it, upon the local economy; the cost of, and scope for, developing elsewhere outside the designated area, or meeting the need for it in some other way; and any detrimental effect on the environment, the landscape and recreational opportunities, and the extent to which that could be moderated."
