In Papua New Guinea, artisanal gold miners use mercury to extract gold from the ore. But this exposes the miners, their families, and their communities to mercury poisoning. So far, the government has not launched any public health measures to address the issue. For more information, please visit: http://www.hrw.org/features/png-golds-costly-dividend

A small scale miner and local business man, Joe Tomerop [TOR-MER-ROP] says Papua New Guinea will have a bright future, if the Government sees the importance of Alluvial Mining. Tomerop who has been in the business for five years says small scale mining can rescue a Country’s economy and foreign exchange. However, he still needs a license to operate as a first time local investor in this sector. - visit us on http//www.emtv.com.pg for more news....

Papua New Guinea is blessed with an abundance of natural minerals. Whilst the country is known for hosting some world leading mining projects, a key part of this sector which continues to grow, is small scale mining. The Mineral Resource Authority (MRA) estimates that there are over Seventy Thousand small scale miners in the country. Given the huge numbers, MRA has embarked on providing training through the Small Scale Mining Training Centre. - visit us at http://www.emtv.com.pg/ for the latest news...

Small Scale Alluvial Mining has been in Papua New Guinea for decades. In 2016 its total revenue was K365 million. One landowner group from Kopiam-Ambum district, is embarking on Mechanised Alluvial Mining. 'Have Your Say' Landowners Association has engaged a local investor to assist them in acquiring a license from the Mineral Resource Authority.

A recent alluvial mining convention and trade show facilitated by Mineral Resource Authority (MRA) brought together small scale miners throughout PNG as well as international investors to Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province. It was the third such trade show intended to introduce and educate alluvial mining communities to utilise machines and emerging technologies as opposed to the traditional methods of mining. All this aimed at allowing an increase in production for small-scale miners. It was during this event that MRA also revealed the value of alluvial gold exported between the years 2008 to 2015 – a whooping K365 million. - visit us at http://www.emtv.com.pg/ for the latest news...

Originally published on September 20, 2013 Next month 140 countries will sign the U.N. Minamata Convention, which aims to regulate the use of mercury to reduce rates of contamination in countries where small-scale gold miners operate. The convention is named after the world's biggest mass mercury poisoning, which occurred 60 years ago in Japan. The cause of the poisoning was identified only 30 years later as a local plastics factory that was dumping mercury into a nearby bay. Mercury is a neurotoxin that affects the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls movement. It also harms the kidneys and other organs. Hand tremors, coordination problems and headaches are among the early symptoms of mercury intoxication, which can also cause birth defects. Small-scale miners, who are responsible for producing about 15 percent of the world's gold, typically use mercury to extract gold from rock or soil, putting themselves and the environment at risk of mercury poisoning. Approximately 10 to 15 million people are involved in the practice worldwide, including 3 million in Indonesia. Miners wash crushed gold ore with mercury by rivers with their bare hands, poisoning themselves and waterways. Afterwards the gold, now an amalgam of mercury and gold, is brought to smelters which burn away the mercury, poisoning people and the environment nearby. -------------------------------------------------------- TomoNews is your daily source for top animated news.

Mercury pollution in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) is widespread throughout the Philippines. Amalgamation, or the use of mercury in gold recovery, is the most popular method used by small-scale miners in extracting gold. In 2008, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) estimated that 400 tons of mercury is released annually and ASGM is known to be one of the largest emitters of mercury in the country. Mercury, once released, persists in the environment. It circulates and gets absorbed by various organisms, impacting biodiversity and poisoning rivers and fish. It is transformed to methyl mercury and spreads its way to the food chain. Mercury is also bioaccumulative. Once it enters the human body, mercury slowly poisons it and causes major health problems such as neurological damage, respiratory problems, musculoskeletal illnesses and worst, death. Unfortunately, women and developing foetuses, infants and children are more susceptible to the effects of mercury, thus, affecting their neurological development. BAN Toxics, with funding support from Dialogos, UNIDO, Global Environment Fund (GEF), Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, US Department of State (USDOS), the Takagi Foundation, and Foundation for the Philippine Environment (FPE), is undertaking a program entitled “Eliminating Mercury Pollution in Small-Scale Gold Mining.” The program is implemented in seven major small-scale gold mining areas in the Philippines in the Municipality of Balbalan and Pasil in Kalinga; Province of Romblon; Mt. Diwalwal in the Province of Compostela Valley; T’boli Mining Area in the Province of South Cotabato; Jose Panganiban and Labo in the Province of Camarines Norte.

"Mercury and gold mining are inextricably linked." A quarter of the world's supply of gold comes from artisanal gold mining, which leads to the release of approximately 1000 tons of toxic mercury a year. Of the 20 million artisanal gold miners, an estimated 2.5 million are women and over 600,000 are children. Learn more at www.pureearth.org

Environmentalists have warned, that Water sources and food grown in the Gold mining areas of Busia have been contaminated by mercury which has left many people at a risk of serious health effects. According to researchers from the National Association of Professional Environmentalists, the water that leaves the mines ends up in the soil and water sources which in turn leads to the contamination of water and food consumed by the locals in the area. #NTVNews Subscribe to Our Channel For more news visit http://www.ntv.co.ug Follow us on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/ntvuganda Like our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/NTVUganda

Not long after Human Rights Watch released this video, Nigeria's federal Minister of the Environment received presidential sign-off on more than US$4 million in funding for for environmental remediation and safer mining in Zamfara state. http://www.hrw.org/news/2012/02/07/nigeria-child-lead-poisoning-crisis Since 2010 ongoing, widespread, acute lead poisoning in Zamfara state has killed at least 500 children. Considered the worst outbreak of lead poisoning in modern history, more than 3,500 affected children require urgent, life-saving treatment. Less than half are receiving it. Among adults there are high rates of infertility and miscarriage. Zamfara is a mineral-rich state, with significant deposits of gold. The acute lead poisoning in Zamfara is a result of artisanal gold mining: small scale mining done with rudimentary tools. Miners crush and grind ore to extract gold, and in the process release dust that is highly contaminated with lead. Children in affected areas are exposed to this dust when they are laboring in the processing site, when their relatives return home covered with the dust on their clothes and hands, and when the processing occurs in their home. Children are also exposed to this highly toxic lead in contaminated water and food sources.
