Month-long protest over Peru copper mine claims first life

Farmers and local leaders fear the $1.3 billion Tia Maria open-pit mine will contaminate irrigation water in the rice farming-rich Tambo valley on Peru's desert coast. Thousands have mobilized against the project, which is owned by Southern Peru Copper Corp., a subsidiary of Grupo Mexico.

“Challenge of illegal gold mining very serious”

Dr. Joyce Aryee, former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Mines, has asked leaders to find solutions to the illegal mining menace, as it is draining the economy of huge revenue and destroying the environment.

“The challenge of illegal gold mining is very serious. It is affecting government’srevenue and water-bodies. In the next five years every source of water bodies will be contaminated.

Greece: The right on the streets attempts to put pressure on Syriza

There are also concerns about the impact the mine could have on the health of the local population. Specifically, there are fears of cyanide pollution of local water bodies. Syriza has promised to stop the development of the mine, but it has also claimed that it will respect legal commitments and so far it has failed to take any decisive measures.

Call for all affected residents to be consulted over gold mining proposal

Doctor Bargh says exploring for gold and silver requires the use of chemicals like cyanide and arsenic to crush up the rocks.
"We're not really interested in anyone exploring for gold because we don't want them to do the gold mining.

How You Can Help Save the Rainforest

Even though gold mining in the rainforest is on a smaller scale, the damage it causes is catastrophic. The open pit mines used to extract precious metals from the rainforest leave scars that don't heal for centuries, chemical contamination from mercury and cyanide used to extract gold from rock lingers, and rivers are polluted from runoff. "The bigger problem is from the roads that are torn through the forest to access mine sites," says Andre Guimaraes Vice President of Development at Conservation International. "They serve as conduits into the interior that inevitably brings more exploitation."

Ghana government urged to deal with harmful results of artisanal mining

A group of researchers have urged government to intensify efforts to deal with the harmful results of artisanal and small-scale gold mining.
The researchers from Ghana and the United States of America, working under a sponsored project by the University of Michigan, Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute, said data gathered from their search indicated that there were currently high concentration of mercury, (a chemical used for gold extraction from rocks) in the soil.

Gov’t urged to deal with harmful results of artisanal mining

The researchers from Ghana and the United States of America ,working under a sponsored project by the University of Michigan, Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute, said data gathered from their search indicated that there were currently high concentration of mercury, (a chemical used for gold extraction from rocks) in the soil.

The mercury used for gold extractions sinks into the ground, contaminating water bodies, while the indiscriminate diggings by these small-scale gold miners lead to environmental degradation.

Wealth or Health: The Problems of Mercury Amalgamation in Gold Mining in Peru

Mercury use associated with mining is currently not regulated by the government or environmental agencies. Because of the lack in regulation, miners do not dispose of their mercury reserves properly. Much of what is used in amalgamation ends up washing away into the Amazon River, harming the aquatic environment. The mercury within the water and the tissues of fish then travels downstream, affecting populations that are not involved directly in the mining process. These populations, unaware of mercury’s effects and presence within their environment, face the harmful effects of mercury poisoning.

The golden vein: a guide to responsible artisanal and small-scale mining (PDF)

This guide to ASM from the Alliance for Responsible Mining focuses on the development of markets and rights for ASM, and includes a concise summary of what ASM is, the challenges it faces and the opportunities for its responsible development.
It provides a particularly useful self-assessment guide for both ASM miners and ASM organisations in identifying their strengths, weaknesses and pathways to improved and responsible practice and performance.

Gold Mining Exploration in Paraguay

Unfortunately, primitive mining practices have caused environmental issues in the area, primarily the improper use of mercury in the mining practices. Mercury is used to capture fine placer gold deposits that hide within the gravel of the streams. Used improperly, this mercury goes into the waterways and contaminates the fishery.

Much of the mining that is being done by local miners is unregulated and results in the contamination that effects the local populations.

Sudan: Environmental Damage Prompts Sudan to Halt Mining Permits

There are more than 81 sites producing more than 90 percent of gold in the country. The mining absorbs about five million miners and other workers, while those affected by these activities are estimated at 11 million people.
The increased gold prospection has economic, environmental, and security impacts on the local communities, in particular the effects resulting from the unwise use of chemicals like mercury and cyanide in the mining operations, as those substances flow in the valleys, water streams and the ground water.
