|PCT/ZA2012/000091||HAHN, Ilse, Renate||HAHN, Hans, Helmut|
A method of exploring and/or exploitation of carbonaceous deposits while mitigating damage to surface and overburden features and/or other adverse impacts accompanying carbonaceous deposit exploitation. The first step prepares the deposit for methane extraction, followed by extracting and utilising the released methane and other volatiles. An intermediate step evaluates information gained in the first step for a further step following synergistically on the first step and which uses the same infrastructure for in situ underground gasification, using thermochemical and/or microbiological gasification/vaporisation techniques. The gases from both steps are used locally or are piped elsewhere as a source of energy or as a chemical feedstock.

|PCT/ZA2012/000090||VAAL UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY||VAAL UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY|
This invention relates to a turbine. More specifically, the invention relates to a variable geometry vertical axis turbine. The turbine includes a shaft, a plurality of aerofoil blades and a plurality of connecting arms, which arms are pivotally connected at a first end to the shaft and at a second end to at least one of the aerofoil blades. The aerofoil blades are movable between a retracted position, wherein the aerofoil blades lie against or in close proximity to the shaft, and an extended position, wherein the aerofoil blades are spaced away from the shaft. Furthermore, the aerofoil blades are configured into corresponding aerofoil blade pairs, wherein each of the aerofoil blades making up a corresponding aerofoil blade pair maintain a common radial location with respect to the shaft and maintain a location, with respect to one another, being on opposite sides of and equidistant from a plane being perpendicular to a longitudinal axis of the shaft and located between first and second ends thereof. In this manner, the aerofoil blades are symmetrical about the perpendicular plane, whether in the retracted position, the extended position or any other position therebetween thereby placing the shaft of the turbine in balance.

|PCT/ZA2012/000085||ROBB, Jonathan Frank||ROBB, Jonathan Frank|
This invention relates to a protective shoe or boot, preferably a gumboot 10 that is integrally moulded from injection moulded plastics. An externally facing, resiliently deformable metatarsal impact absorption guard 28 is integrally moulded with the instep of the boot. The metatarsal guard band 28 is made up of a number of in-line, open-sided arches 28.1, 28.2, 28.3 extending across the instep of the boot upper. By virtue of being open-sided, the arches 28.1, 28.2, 28.3 can be formed integrally and simultaneously with the boot 10 in a single injection moulding process by means of appropriately shaped mould formations that are integral with the mould parts.
