Pure Gold, Dark Mine. The heinous side of the search for gold
To extract the precious metal were, and unfortunately in many countries are still used, mercury and cyanide. Two elements highly toxic to humans and the environment.
Gold is not afraid of air or most chemical reagents. Its high chemical inertness has always made it the ideal material for minting jewels.
Mining, however, pollutes, destroys and impoverishes the earth. It is estimated that 3 tons of waste are generated to produce a single gold ring.
