Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining in Peru: A Blessing

Sep 26, 2012 A report by Peru Support Group. Abstract: High gold prices, persistent poverty and a shortage of employment opportunities in Peru have all contributed to an increase in artisanal and small-scale gold mining activity in recent years. The expansion of the sector has brought new political and analytical attention to a phenomenon which has been largely overlooked in the past.

Gold mining news: Peru prioritizes gold mining in COVID-19

Jun 11, 2020 It is difficult to overstate just how important the gold mining industry is to Peru. Currently over 330,000 Peruvians make their living from gold mining and the sector represents 14% of Peru’s GDP and 60% of the nation’s exports. Around 20% of the country’s total gold production comes from small scale artisanal mining.

“Our gold is dirty, but we want to improve”: Challenges to

Jun 10, 2019 1. Introduction. Mercury use in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) has captured global attention and concern for decades. Approximately 1,350 tonnes of mercury per year are released into the environment from ASGM, making it the largest source of anthropogenic mercury emissions (Telmer and Veiga, 2009, UNEP, 2013a).In Peru, the total mercury releases to the

The Mercury Problem in Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining

Mercury-dependent artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) is the largest source of mercury pollution on Earth. In this practice, elemental mercury is used to extract gold from ore as an amalgam.

GLOBAL TRENDS IN ARTISANAL AND SMALL-SCALE

Artisanal and small-scale mining is also the source of the largest releases of mercury, estimated at 1,400 tonnes per year in 2011 according to the Minamata Convention. Exposure to mercury can have serious health impacts, including irreversible brain damage.

The Sustainable Development Goals Through the Lens of

What do we mean by that? First, the sector is large. An estimated 15-20 million people work in ASGM, compared to about one million in large-scale gold mining. Second, artisanal miners typically earn 70-80% of the global gold spot price,a rate higher than nearly any other commodity. This has the potential to inject money directly into

Reducing global mercury pollution from small-scale

Small-scale gold mining accounts for 37 % of global mercury pollution. Millions of poor people have to resort to this type of mining as the only way of sustaining their families. 2 A large part of the mercury used in the final step of gold extraction ends up as mm-sized droplets in dumps (tailings) from which mercury slowly evaporates to the
