of mining, but if you look very carefully you can see all the damage being done to the land everywhere that has been mined nothing grows. It's easy to tell when an area has been mined. That's because almost a pound of mercury is released into the environment for every pound of gold removed. It goes into the land the rivers into the fish and anything in the food chain that eats those fish. The large mining operations recover most of their mercury and reuse it but these small operations don't and are very destructive. They come into these third world countries, take and giver nothing back, but expect us to sympathize with them. You can be successful in America. You don't have to go and rape some struggling country's rain forest.
