More films about the Philippines: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/philippines/ - The use of child labour in the Philippine’s Paracale, or ‘Goldtown’, is widespread - Extracting gold involves diving into mud-filled shafts and using toxic mercury - Poverty and lack of alternative jobs force people into this highly dangerous work - Many die young due to work accidents or breathing problems, others develop chronic illness The Philippines’ town of Paracale was dubbed “Goldtown” for its rich deposits of the precious metal. Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

We have been mining for several months -- and the pay streak we were following has almost run dry. We are no where near our season goal. The only thing I can do is prospect for new ground to mine. The current mine is still producing gold, but we need to find a new pay streak. After I do some prospecting, I have Krazy Joe run the Dozer - and we move one of the wash plants. The new conveyor belts have arrived - and its time to have the entire plant work as one lean, mean, Gold-producing Machine! Are we going to find Gold?! Of Course! The true secret of this show - is nothing you see is "real". Everything is generally staged (well as much as we can plan when playing!), and though we are mining for real gold (yes it's real pay dirt), the true Gold is the experience we get as friends, what we hope the viewers get watching a couple of goofballs entertain you with some very cool toys. One mans hobby, is another's entertainment on YouTube! Now all I have to do is to continue learning how to sluice for Gold. We are all rookies, we have never mined before.. yet, I have always had a passion for Radio Control, and for finding Gold! "YouTube GOLD" is a #Parody series based around the GOLD Shows of TV that we all know and love. #GoldRush #YukonGold #BeringSeaGold all of these are shows that my family enjoy seeing! A lot of viewers ask me questions about the products I use in my videos, and I have learned to pass along this info in my video descriptions. I hope it helps if you are curious about my HD Equipment. I ordered all of my Heavy Duty Construction equipment distributed by a company called "RC4WD". Here is a link: https://store.rc4wd.com/Heavy-Machinery_c_154.html I am using the older style of excavator, the 870K wheel loader, the DXR2 Dozer, and the 797F Haul Truck. These machines are very impressive.. and VERY HEAVY! All metal, all around... True hydraulic systems that have ample power for your Radio control modelling needs. I have always known that making a GOLD MINE would be possible with RC models.. and finally I get to realize this dream - even if the scale is all 1/14th in size!

Our mining claim neighbors called the Cops! People living on the other side of the river where our mining claim is and not liking our mining, called the cops. It appears our neighbors just did not want their liberal utopia disturbed so they call the cops to harass us. The police were very cool as I knew one of them from checking our permits on another river couple months earlier and an Oregon DEQ meeting he showed up at. The rude lady yells to at from other side of river "you need a permit to do that"...we had them of course. She also told cops we were disrespecful and rude to her...which was totally false. She made up her own narrative about what was happening to justify her being annoyed. Liberal tactic # 3, change the narrative or just plain lie! This is the short version of the video, filmed on the Applegate River in Oregon while we were LEGALLY GOLD MINING!

A few kilometres from Minna, Northern Nigeria, miles of dug-out craters scatter the landscape. These illegal mines, along with others across the country, are the livelihood of around five million poverty stricken people: families who, on a daily basis, have no choice but to put their lives on the line just to survive. Working long hours for little money, the backbreaking work these miners endure can lead to serious health risks. While some spend hours in tiny openings in the rock breathing in damp air, others stay in cold water for days on end, giving them a high chance of developing conditions like Silicosis, Pneumonia, Tuberculosis, and Lymphoma. Standing in the yard of his nearby house, Abdulahi Abdulahi, a former employee of the Nigerian prison service, is one of the many miners forced into this line of work. Ever since a jailbreak at the prison he worked for in Minna, Abdulahi has struggled to find steady employment. Conditions are so bad that, of his sixteen children, ten are full time miners. Deep lines stretch across his brow as he tells his children to grab their metal pans before a long day’s work. “Fasten up... Let’s go, let’s go,” he shouts, as the family bundle into the back of an auto-rickshaw—or keke napep—heading for the mine they work at only a few miles down the road. Leaving the vehicle, the family walk into a field where others are already at work. Abdulahi’s situation is typical among his fellow miners: a man forced to make his children work out of complete desperation. With his tearful eldest son, El Haji, standing nearby, the family know there are very few options for them. “When I was working,” Abdulahi says, “I didn’t allow them to engage in mining.” Toddlers as young as three years old work here, in the hope of raising enough money to help feed their family, with any left over used to pay for their school fees. While many hope to be educated one day, the majority will not earn enough to cover even the most basic schooling. Sifting through the water and rubble with his hands, Rabi’u, 12, is already an experienced miner. Although he’s spent much of his young life digging, most days he finds nothing at all. An average day for him is spent digging and washing tonnes of sand in the hope of finding a few specs of gold. If he finds any, buyers will either pay for it directly, or get the gold processed at industrial mining plants around the area. These large-scale sites, used to extract the gold from rocks using a variety of methods and algorithms, are where the decent money is made, one step removed from the source. After processing, the gold is then exported to the Middle East and Europe. “We seek a legal means of making money,” one plant worker says, wooden benches and bags of rubble surrounding him. “We make good money from the gold we dig,” he adds. The increase in illegal mining has sent shockwaves across the whole industry. Many certified miners haven’t been allowed to work, as a crack down from the Nigerian government on mining rages on across the country. Just recently, president Muhammadu Buhari set up a special security team to guard against illegal mining countrywide, though this has meant the closure of many legitimate mines. “The challenges that you face from informal, artisanal miners are in the fields where you’re operating in and already have licences for,” says John Olukayode Fayemi, the Minister of Solid Minerals. With more mines being closed than ever, licenced miners have less places work as a knock on effect. Hordes of mining graduates, meanwhile, certificates in hand, have also suffered, and are hopeful of a resolution soon. “These graduates don’t have jobs and it would be good if they are allowed to mine without interference,” one spokesman says. With mining conditions at a low across Nigeria, action needs to be taken quickly. As five women huddle around one mine, their colourful clothes increasingly muddied, they search through the murky water for any sign of gold. Their frantic pursuits can often lead to danger; the unstable earth they dig through can come crashing down at any moment, leading to death in many cases. “If we had money,” one of the women says, “we would not subject ourselves to this hardship.” At a neighbouring mine, three year old Abba has been learning the trade from his older siblings. Earning 100 Naira a day, the equivalent of just under 30 cents in the U.S., he’s trying to raise money to go to school, though he can’t yet understand English, the language the course will be taught in. As he plays around in the mud, with a smile plastered across his face, it’s clear he’s nothing more than a child being asked to grow up too soon.

At this Fair Trade ASM site I was dared to climb down a 150 foot mine shaft and accepted the challenge. It was hot and dark at the bottom where I encountered one miner breaking the hard ground with a pick ax and passing buckets of rock and earth up the shaft on a pulley system.

Sign up for a free trial of News Direct's animated news graphics at http://newsdirect.nma.com.tw/Reuters.aspx 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.

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.

(3 Jul 2017) LEADIN Illegal gold mining in Ivory Coast is still widespread in the country's north despite government efforts to control it. Local officials complain too many men and women are joining the continuing gold rush and leaving farms without enough labour. STORYLINE At an illegal mine in Tongon in the far north of Ivory Coast, around fifty kilometres from the border with Burkina Faso, miners have dug a 20 metre shaft into a layer of gold bearing rock. Rocks are hauled to the surface before being pounded into a powder. It's very a labour intensive and sometimes dangerous process. Illegal mining has been blamed for uncontrolled migration between countries in the region, unchecked pollution and for fuelling violence. Miners move around, following the latest gossip of where gold is to be found. Miner Hamed Ouedraogo has come from northern neighbour Burkina Faso: "Often when we are moving about we hear of new mines that have been started and that are people are going there, so we head there too." Although operating without permits, miners have machinery on hand to help them and receive a small salary from the illegal mine's owners, often businessmen working with the help of corrupt local officials. It is something authorities have been trying to stamp out as they encourage international investors into the sector. George Gueu Gombadji, the Prefect of Boundiali region says that it means that agriculture is also suffering as there are fewer men to work the land. "This (illegal gold mining) is causing a major loss off of the nation's riches. It has reached such a scale that the supply of agricultural labourers is drying up as they all go mining instead," he says. Illegal mining took off during the years prior to Ivory Coast's 2011 civil war, with rebels occupying much of the north. While the money doesn't flow into the state's coffers, run-off from the illegal mining pollutes water courses. Ouedraogo says the gold will be sold off wherever it can attract the highest prices: "In Burkina Faso the price is higher, a gramme (of gold) can go up to 30,000 West African francs (51 US dollars)." He says in Ivory Coast the going rate is 12,500 francs (21 US dollars) per gramme. Not far away are the offices of Randgold Resources, a NASDAQ and London stock exchange listed gold mining company. They operate legally, holding an official permit to mine in the area. They operate on an entirely different scale to the illegal miners - the Tongon mine, operated in partnership with the state, comprises two massive open cast mines. According to Randgold's own figures, last year they extracted 260,556 ounces of gold at this mine in Ivory Coast, that is over 7 metric tonnes, generating over 121 (m) million US dollars in profit. Bodiel N'diaye, the company's country director recently gathered journalists to explain why he is unhappy with the impact of the illegal mining. "These people come and set up in areas where they do not have the right to operate. Take our concessions for example, where we have a government licence (to mine). When we come to start working, we can't because these people are occupying the site illegally, they have no authorisation from the supervising ministry. They don't follow the laws," he says. Government efforts to crackdown on the illegal mining have done little to stop the practice. The illegal miners simply move on or across borders briefly before returning.

The Homestake Mine was a deep underground gold mine located in Lead, South Dakota. Until it closed in 2002 it was the largest and deepest gold mine in North America. The mine produced more than 40 million troy ounces (approximately 1.25 million kilograms) of gold during its lifetime. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * History of the Homestake Mine: The Homestake deposit was discovered by Fred and Moses Manuel, Alex Engh and Hank Harney in April 1876, during the Black Hills Gold Rush. A trio of mining entrepreneurs, George Hearst, Lloyd Tevis, and James Ben Ali Haggin, bought it from them for $70,000 the following year. George Hearst arrived at the mine in October 1877, and took active control of the property. Hearst had to haul in all the mining equipment by wagons from the nearest railhead in Sidney, Nebraska. Arthur De Wint Foote worked as an engineer. Despite the remote location, an 80-stamp mill began crushing Homestake ore in July 1878. The partners sold shares in the Homestake Mining Company, and listed it on the New York Stock Exchange in 1879. The Homestake would become one of the longest-listed stocks in the history of the NYSE (Con Edison's original name was New York Gas Light and was listed in 1824). Hearst consolidated and enlarged the Homestake property by fair and foul means. He bought out some adjacent claims, and secured others in the courts. By the time Hearst left the Black Hills in March 1879, he had added the claims of Giant, Golden Star, Netty, May Booth, Golden Star No. 2, Crown Point, Sunrise, and General Ellison to the original two claims of the Manuel Brothers, Golden Terra and Old Abe, totaling 30 acres. The ten-stamp mill had become 200, and 500 employees worked in the mine, mills, offices and shops. He owned the Boulder Ditch and water rights to Whitewood Creek, monopolizing the region. His railroad, Black Hills & Fort Pierre Railroad, gave him access to eastern Dakota territory. By 1900, the Homestake owned 300 claims, on 2000 acres, and was worked by more than 2000 employees. In 1901, the mine started using compressed air locomotives, replacing the mules and horses by the 1920s. Charles Washington Merrill introduced cyanidization to augment mercury-amalgamation for gold recovery. "Cyanide Charlie" finally achieved 94 per cent recovery. The gold was shipped to the Denver Mint. By 1906, the Ellison Shaft reached 1,550 feet, the B&M 1,250 feet, the Golden Star 1,100 feet, and the Golden Prospect 900 feet, producing 1,500,000 tons of ore. A disastrous fire struck on 25 March 1907, which took forty days to extinguish after the mine was flooded. Another disastrous fire struck in 1919. In 1927, company geologist Donald H. McLaughlin used a winze from the 2,000 level to demonstrate ore reached the 3,500 foot level. The Ross shaft was started in 1934, a second winze from the 3,500 foot level reached 4,100 feet, and a third winze from 4,100 feet was started in 1937. The Yates shaft was started in 1938. Production ceased from 1943 until 1945, due to Limitation Order L-208 from the Government. By 1975, mining operations has reached the 6,800 foot level, and two winzes were planned to 8,000 feet.

Watch "Golden Gamble" on RTD: https://rtd.rt.com/films/golden-gamble/ The Philippines banned compressor mining in 2012 but crews still operate as people have no other way of making a living. Miners risk their health on a daily basis spending hours submerged in water which is often contaminated. Divers use a hose attached to a homemade compressor to breathe, meaning the air they use is often polluted with carbon monoxide and diesel fumes. The miners’ greatest fear is the air flow being blocked or a tunnel caving in. When processing the gold, miners use mercury which is highly toxic and can cause brain damage.
