Poisoned By The Gold Rush
Gold is quickly becoming the new cocaine in Colombia. The precious metal is now the currency of choice for individuals and groups engaging in illicit trade in the South American country. That's because unlike cocaine, it's perfectly legal to carry gold, and unlike money, it's virtually untraceable. But there are some major side-effects of Colombia's new gold rush that locals are curiously quiet about: erectile dysfunction and brain damage. VICE News correspondent Monica Villamizar travelled to the Antioquia, Colombia, a hotbed of illegal gold mining, to investigate an unprecedented surge in impotence and neurological problems that experts are attributing to mercury, an essential gold-digging element.

Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines
Gold Dust: Under Blaise Compaore's leadership, Burkina Faso's unregulated gold rush has had a devastating effect on mining conditions. This report digs deep into the industry, exposing the corruption beneath Compaore's ruling. Millions of people - including children as young as fourteen - mine in an unregulated industry for a few golden grams of hope. Marcel toils underground to support his family - but without the glittering rewards promised. “We all have hope, we hope to earn” he says, but "they rob us here...They treat the miner like an animal." 17-year old Soumaele has been mining for two years. His thin body can go to even deeper than the older men, to places where the air is impossible to breathe and the tunnels are likely to collapse. Gold promises a great deal, but in an anarchic industry, teacher Soungalo Hema fears for the future of children like Soumaele: "You try and save them", she says, "but a lot of the time it’s in vain. I ask myself 'what will happen to all of us?'"

Gold is everywhere in Suriname, from political power to what the locals wear on their fingers, the effects of gold mining seep into all aspects of society. The industry is a necessary source of income for many Surinamese, but it's also destroying the environment, bad for public health, and rife with corruption. VICE Netherlands went to Suriname to see how gold is intertwined with everyday life in the country. They ride along with 'Jungle' Ronnie Brunswick - an ex-rebel leader who waged a violent civil war but is now a successful businessman, owning thousands of hectares of gold mining land. VICE Netherlands also witnessed the dangers of mercury, which is used widely in the recovery of gold, and visited Benz Village, where everything in life is paid for with gold.

Effects of mining: What's mine is not only ores

Dissolving Gold in Mercury
Follow me on Instagram: https://goo.gl/5oQiWQ Follow me on Twitter: https://goo.gl/uCmnV4 ----------------------------------------- Okay, so we are not truly dissolving the gold, we are actually forming an alloy between the gold and the mercury (called an amalgam). This process is not only cool to look at, but it also is really useful to extract gold from ore. The gold-mercury amalgam can then be isolated and the mercury is boiled off or removed chemically. This leaves behind relatively pure gold. Outro music: https://soundcloud.com/sorrysines

Peru: Illegal Gold Miners Cause Deforestation in the Amazon
Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/peru-gold-mining-deforestation-environment-health-risks-poverty In collaboration with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, special correspondent Steve Sapienza reports on illegal gold mining in southeastern Peru, where one of the world's richest ecosystems is being mutilated by illegal gold miners. Deemed fortune hunters, illegal gold miners increasingly prey on the resources of the Madre De Dios region, transforming Peru's rainforests into mining towns and extending the problem deeper into the Amazon. Close to 30,000 people tied to illegal gold mining activity now call the region in Peru home. Specifically in the region's capital, Puerto Maldonado, and a nearby town, La Pampa, deforestation caused by illegal gold miners is on the rise, and with police efforts to halt the illegal gold mining proving futile, the destruction of Peru continues. The owners of farm and forestry concessions in Peru face a daily threat of invasion by illegal gold miners who claim to have mining rights to the land. The resulting illegal mining fosters criminal activities and destroys the natural resources of the region. Once illegal gold miners relocate, the land remains a barren desert of sand pits--a destroyed ecosystem carved out by deforestation. This report is part of the Pulitzer Center sponsored project "Peru's Gold Rush: Wealth and Woes" (http://bit.ly/yaU3Xb).

Small-scale Gold Mining: Chinese Operations in Cameroon
Ein Film von Katja Becker und Jonathan Happ (2016) in Zusammenarbeit mit dem vom BMBF-geförderten Forschungsprojekt AFRASO –"Afrika's Asiatische Optionen" (http://www.afraso.org). Wissenschaftliches Konzept: Diderot Nguepjouo und Jürgen Runge Over the last decade, Cameroon’s artisanal and small-scale mining sector has gone through several mutations thanks to the new policy which has attracted various international investors from Asia, Africa, Europe, and America. As from 2012 on, the involvement of Chinese entrepreneurs has dramatically accelerated the pace of progress in the sector. Some of them switched from other economic activities they were already pursuing in the country whilst the others, mostly mining professionals, moved from the Ghanaian gold mining business to Cameroon. Chinese entrepreneurs have gradually become main players in the gold mining operations, recording successes, while other actors, e.g. Koreans, went bankrupt and in many cases have sold their business capital to Chinese without any competition. Through taking over those projects coupled with their greenfield mining initiatives, Chinese investors has gained the image of successful businessmen in the sector. As a result, their working style and techniques are gradually being adopted by almost all local and foreign investors. This is the context that spurred AFRASO researcher Diderot NGUEPJOUO together with the filmmaking crew UJUZI travel to Cameroon and shoot the 3rd AFRASO documentary. The film follows several active players in the major segments of the Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM) in Cameroon: a Chinese investor; local entrepreneurs (member of Parliament, businessman, and middleman); workers, small operators in “Nguéré”, civil servants as well as the affected communities on their working sites. The film reveals that political elite and administrative authorities appear to favour the involvement of Chinese operators because they consider it beneficial to the State and local entrepreneurs (service providers, middlemen…), while traditional rulers and business people who did not partner with Chinese are less supportive of this presence. Furthermore, the positive impacts resulting from gold mining are reported to be enjoyed by Chinese investors and some local entrepreneurs while the communities are left with the impact of these activities such as land disturbance, water pollution, diseases... All in all, the movie tries to put forward the ongoing dynamics and contradictions that are taking place in the Cameroon's gold mining.

Ghana’s gold diggers: Scramble comes at high cost
People have mined for gold in what is now Ghana for thousands of years. The precious metal has always been easy to find, hence the name the British gave the country when they colonised it: the Gold Coast. In this four-part film series, we investigate the role of illegal, small-scale mining — an increasingly important part of Ghana’s gold producing industry — and its impacts on human health and the environment. As a result of a modern-day gold rush induced by a spike in the price of the metal triggered by the 2008 financial crisis, Ghana is now the second largest producer of gold in Africa. More than 30 per cent of this gold is produced by small-scale miners, known as galamseys, who often work illegally. Despite the price of gold having fallen over the past year, there is no sign of an end to the galamsey activity. In this series, we travel to Ghana’s gold belt to meet the galamseys and learn about their struggle with poverty, pollution and stigma. The galamseys don’t know how to safely handle the mercury and other dangerous elements needed to extract and process gold, putting their health at risk, as well as that of those who eat fish from polluted rivers. As the mining industry keeps expanding, its toll on public health and the environment is morphing into a national crisis. During our trip, we explore potential ways to turn this challenge into an opportunity, tapping into the economic potential of the mining sector while making sure that the galamseys are protected from health hazards and exploitation. We also learn how Ghana’s gold rush has become an international race, with thousands of Chinese miners illegally entering the country over the past ten years.

Now the community are demanding that the mining operation close down completely as they see no solution to this destruction of their homes and impact on their health. They are not impressed with the court interdict obtained by Mogale City to close the mine while further inspections are done - calling this a smokescreen to destract from obvious irregularities in the granting of the mining license by both government officials and Mintails They have repeatedly requested a copy of the Environmental Impact Assessment - but this has been refused on the grounds that this is .....

The 'vertical flow pond' in the Lake District National Park has been designed in collaboration with the Coal Authority, National Trust and Environment Agency, and funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The method could pave the way for cleaning up hundreds of abandoned metal mines across England and potentially the world.

Effects of Gold King Mine Spill
The Gold King Mine Spill occurred in August, 2015. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that there could have been almost 900,000 pounds of metal dumped into the Animas River. Bill Carter, author of the book “Boom, Bust, Boom,” a book about copper mining, says that this spill has a permanent effect on the river in Colorado. Additionally, Carter says that mines in general have permanent effects on the environment around them, especially the aquifer. Carter also says that some of these are real issues because they are cancer-causing metals, such as arsenic and lead. These metals will settle and when a big rush of water or flood occurs that will stir the metals and bring them back to the surface. Carter first was interested in this issue when his yard in Bisbee, Ariz. was contaminated with arsenic and lead. After doing research of mines all around the world, he discovered that all mines have this problem. The problem with these mines is that there are talus piles that are not being taken care of and are a disaster waiting to happen.

I was traumatized", says 25-year-old Yuri, who risks his life illegally diving for tin off the coast. In addition to a steadily rising death toll, local ecosystems are being ravaged by massive deforestation, water pollution, soil depletion and the collapse of fish stocks. "It will take centuries, thousands of years before everything can return to normal", says biologist Eddy Nurtjahya. The Islands of Bangka and Belitung are experiencing a tin rush and with a laissez-faire government and rampant corruption, many are now seeking international pressure to help curb this illegal trade. "If the government doesn't take immediate action Bangka and Belitung will get poorer and poorer."

Impacts of mining on foraging bats
My team is participating in the Quarry Life Awards 2018. We are investigating on how quarry activities affects foraging bats. Bats play important role in the ecosystem including seed dispersal, pollination, insect population control and so on. So it is important to know how they are affected by the presence of the quarry. This non-commercial video is to help viewers understand the work we are doing, and also to educate them on some of the species of bats found at Beposo, where the quarry is located.

The Toxic E-Waste Trade Killing Pakistan's Poorest
The E-Waste Curse: The deadly effect of dumping E-waste in Pakistan Pakistan has become an illegal dumping ground for some of the 50 million tons of e-waste created each year. Karachi's poor earn a living from the toxic detritus, but the vicious cycle of consumption could prove fatal. In Pakistan, the massive arrival of electronic waste has created an informal substance economy that feeds 150,000 people. The country's poor salvage what they can from the cast-offs of the electronic revolution: copper, steel, brass. Nassir is one who has cashed in on the opportunities found in old cables and hard-drives. "It’s a good business. I have more and more work", he says. Yet workers pay the price for a few grams of copper; 4 million people die every year because of electronic waste and recycling workers have the lowest life expectancy in Pakistan. In his recycling shop, Akhbar earns 2€ on a good day. It feeds his family of six, but his health has suffered. "This job is dangerous. It’s very toxic". And the toxic legacy is far-reaching - "It’s a catastrophe...especially for the children", warns Saba, an activist for the WWF. "They will continue to live here and be poisoned, it’s dangerous for them and it’s dangerous for the next generations". In our relentlessly consumerist world, can the global poor be saved from the toxic trade in e-waste?

In the Picture: Tales from the City of Gold
Johannesburg is a city built on gold. It was founded in 1886 when settlers and immigrants began mining the largest reef of precious metal ever discovered. What had been a small farming community rapidly transformed into a mining mecca and within 50 years, over 300,000 people were working in mines across the city. The mining may have come to an end, but its environmental and social impact is still visible. Jason Larkin lived in Johannesburg for two years, photographing a landscape of vast tailing dams - mountains of dumped toxic waste. In his new book, Tales From The City Of Gold, Larkin combines his observations of the ordinary and extraordinary nature of life alongside the dumps. Its focus on the coexistence of the past and the present provides a unique perspective on the actions of previous generations and reveals their impact on today's society and environment. Through this project, Larkin has worked on multiple formats for the final output, reaching different audiences both in Africa & Europe. In a talk chaired by Francis Hodgson, they will discuss the challenges of communicating ideas and reaching audiences, as well as the various methods of output and distribution available to photographers today. Hodgson is the professor in the Culture of Photography at the University of Brighton, photography critic of the Financial Times and a former head of the photographs department at Sotheby's. An exhibition of the work will be held at Flowers, 82 Kingsland Road, London E2 8DP, 20 February - 20 March 2014. All images © Jason Larkin, courtesy Flowers, London.
