From award-winning author Randall Silvis comes a riveting exploration of the unforgivable secrets that families keep - and the consequences that come from exposing them.Products of their run-down Pennsylvania mining town, three brothers grapple with their lives in decline. Harvey drives a delivery truck; Stevie works odd jobs; and Will is a struggling bar owner whose wife, Laci, is edging toward desperation when her boss offers her more money…for a price. Then, in this tight circle where prosperity is rare - and hope, even rarer - comes a breaking point in a simple but indefensible slight....When Harvey gets shafted by his brother-in-law in a deal over a vintage Indian motorcycle, he enlists the help of Stevie and Will to set things right. But the revenge plan goes awry, and the three men stumble upon a shocking secret that, if revealed, would upend their lives.As they’re crushed under the weight of a nightmarish truth and the damning evidence in their possession, it’s up to Laci to save her family from the coming storm the brothers have wrought. And no one is prepared for the fallout. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Will Damron. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/011138/bk_brll_011138_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Kaolin is a clay raw material and mineral which is widely used for a wide range of industrial applications, such as the production of paper, ceramics, plastics, paints, etc. In kaolin mining, wide and deep pits are created to enable kaolinised granites to be extracted. The kaolinised granite is extracted from the pits by shovel and truck and is transported to a primary screening process. The excavated kaolinized granite deposits and other heavy compounds are however transported to various parts of the locality by water run-offs leaving particles and traces of the minerals on the soil surfaces. This book discusses on how these deposits affects the soil and vegetation around the vicinity of the mining site.
Literature and research on several aspects of tropical soils especially in Africa have not been updated or documented. Today's technology depends to large extend on availability of baseline data and information, especially in geophysical sciences. In this work, deposits of rudaceous materials (Bush Gravels) in Alfisols of Girei local government areas of Adamawa State were identified and geo-tagged using GPRS. Mining of these materials occur on small and large-scales through manual excavation and sorting by local people for economic reasons. It takes about two weeks for a team of 2-3 individuals to excavate and sort out a 4 cubic meter truck load. Morphological and physical Characterization of the Rudaceous deposits were carried out and their Uniformity coefficient Cu = D60/D10 and Coefficient of curvature Cc = (D30)2/D10 x D60 were calculated. Geospatial computations of areas of approximate deposits were mapped out by assuming a buffer radius of 500 m from excavation sites using ArcGIS. Site specific data sheets for the study area are presented. The results suggest a diverse mixture of all shapes sizes across all the sites.

The Terex 33-19 "Titan" is a prototype off-highway, ultra class, rigid frame, three-axle, diesel/AC electric powertrain haul truck designed and built by the Terex Division of General Motors in 1973. Only one 33-19 was ever produced. After 13 years in service, the 33-19 was restored and is now preserved on static display in Sparwood, BC, CanadaThe 33-19 "Titan" was first shown to the public in October, 1974 at the American Mining Congress in Las Vegas, NV. The 33-19 "Titan" was the largest in the Terex 33 series of off-road haulers, which also included the 33-03, 33-05, 33-07, 33-09, 33-11 and the 33-15.

The Caterpillar 797B is an off-highway, ultra class, two-axle, mechanical powertrain haul truck developed and manufactured by Caterpillar Inc. in the United States specifically for high production mining and heavy-duty construction applications world-wide. The 797B is the second generation of the 797 series. The 797B was introduced to the public in spring of 2002 and first entered service with a customer in October, 2002. The 797B remained in production until December, 2009 when Caterpillar started full production of the 797B''s successor, the 797F. While it was in production, the 797B was Caterpillar''s largest, highest payload capacity haul truck model. Compared to the first generation 797, the 797B has a larger payload capacity and a more powerful engine. These changes allowed Caterpillar to meet mine operators'' needs to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs by increasing the amount of material hauled per trip.

The Caterpillar 797F is an off-highway, ultra class, two-axle, mechanical powertrain haul truck developed and manufactured by Caterpillar Inc. in the United States specifically for high production mining and heavy-duty construction applications worldwide. The 797F is the third, current generation model of the 797 series and is Caterpillar''s largest, highest payload capacity haul truck. Caterpillar introduced the 797F to the public at MINExpo International in September, 2008. The 797F replaced its predecessor model, the 797B, when the 797F entered full production in late 2009. Prior to the introduction of the Caterpillar 797F and the Bucyrus MT6300AC at MINExpo International in September, 2008, the Liebherr T 282B, introduced in 2004, was the only haul truck with a payload capacity of 400 short tons (363 t). Compared to the 797B, the 797F has a larger payload capacity and a more powerful, more efficient engine. These changes allowed Caterpillar to meet mine operators'' needs to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs by increasing the amount of material hauled per trip.

The Coolgardie Esperance Highway is a 368 km Western Australian highway between Coolgardie and Esperance. It runs in a north-south direction linking the WA's Eastern Goldfields to the coast. The Coolgardie-Norseman stretch (National Highway 94) forms part of the Perth to Adelaide National Highway route and is the busier part of the highway with heavy interstate truck traffic. The interstate traffic continues eastwards via Eyre Highway from its junction in Norseman. From Coolgardie to Norseman it passes through arid mining country, mainly dotted with patches of gum trees, scrub and salt lakes.
This book is a case study developed in a mining site, middle of Amazonia, Brazil. This book shows mine operation in a specific situation of Juruti mine in September 2015. It is essential to understand the strip mining method and how it have been done in Amazonia. The book focuses on the loading and hauling ore operation, simulating shovel and truck work to define the ideal number of trucks to use for each mining face. The comparative infield tests proves the simulation effectiveness. Before the simulation process, the literature review section provides the necessary information about the region where this work occurs. It is regarding a bauxite mine in the middle of a rain forest with its peculiarities, especially in terms of weather, geology and mining aspects.
