Instructional Guide to Demonstrate the Effects of the Environment on Electrical Circuit in the Mining Industry

ABSTRACT 

The study was designed to investigate the impacts of mining on electrical circuits in the catchment communities with specific reference to Damperyaw mining company. A careful observation of the activities of Damperyaw mining community at the catchment areas in terms of effects of the prevailing environmental conditions reveal that, most catchment communities have issues and concern about how the mining activities are affecting their electrical gargets and appliance. The descriptive survey was used for the study with a sample size of 35 respondents. The data collection instrument was questionnaire. Data collected was processed using the Statistical Product for Service Solutions (SPSS). Findings of the assessment indicate that, most of the respondents (70 %) were engaged in farming as their main occupation. A greater percentage of the respondents acknowledged the fact that at Damperyaw Mining undertakes both surface and underground mining. It was established that, 3 (8.6%) of the respondents stated the lecture method 2 (5.7%) stated discussion method, 16 (45.7%) said field trip method and 14 (40.0%) said demonstration method. Respondents argued that as a result of the field trip method of teaching them the working of mining helps to get the concepts faster as compared to other methods. From the survey, majority of the respondents of the total sample population admitted that mining contribute to some environmental conditions, such as dust, temperature and humidity. It could be concluded that mining activities contributes to the state and nature of electrical circuits in which these electricals are found. The density of dust in the atmosphere could affect the functionality of that electrical components. From the results of this study, it is recommended that the management of the Damperyaw mining centre should provide adequate instructional and technical resources to enable trainees undergo through effective teaching and learning of simple electrical circuits in the mining industry.
