to #MakeMercuryHistory in ASGM.
The Planet’s 1st #ClimateAction Cryptocurrency Blockchain
Smart Futures Contract to #MakeMercuryHistory in ASGM starting in Portovelo-Zaruma, Ecuador
DIGITAL COIN PURPOSE
We have created an AlchemyLGCoin© #ClimateAction digital currency utility token listed for trading and operating on Waves.Exchange decentralized exchange open blockchain platform live for #Crowdfunding to #MakeMercuryHistory and:
*finance, promote, educate, market and execute our #GreenGoldMining #ASGM mercury and #cyanide free #BoraxFluxSmelting #ClimateActionNow solutions to #MakeMercuryHistory in the district of Portovelo-Zaruma. This action eliminates deadly toxic mercury-cyanide tailings sludge polluting the Calera and Amarillo rivers through Peru Puyango-Tumbes river basin to the Gulf de Guayaquil and Pacific Ocean, and;
*initiate discussions to acquire/JV a Chilean mercury processing facility in the district of Portovelo-Zaruma, Ecuador, for conversion to #BoraxFluxSmelting beginning with our Mina San Juan ore and;
*execute #GoldTollMilling operations purchasing and aggregating ore from government registered local ASG miners to ensure an ethical, responsible & sustainable #GreenGoldMined ore supply chain while encouraging responsible #ASGM operations with a clear commitment for present and future generations with #BoraxFluxSmelting thereby, immediately eliminating both mercury use, and deadly toxic #cyanide chemical waste while sustaining the livelihood and income for the ASG miners and communities together we can #MakeOurPlanetGreatAgain.

* according to the World Gold Council, 190,040 tonnes of gold have been mined throughout history to end – 2017 of which a whopping 47.7%, is gold for jewelry?
*mercury-dependent ASGM is the #Planet's largest #Anthropogenic [man-caused] source of #mercury pollution primarily due to India and China's ever growing gold demand for jewelry?
*according to the Journal of Health Pollution, ASG miners typically use 500 grams of mercury to recover 1.5 grams of gold (“Au”) with the excess mercury being both, vaporized to the environment with the mercury contaminated toxic chemical waste tailings sludge containing 5 – 10 grams of Au per ton after being rinsed with #cyanide only to recover less than 10% of the waste mercury flour Au, is dumped in rivers and streams?
*when ASG miners spew their toxic mercury-cyanide sludge containing other toxic metals into the environment, the mercury becomes part of the food chain and micro-organisms transform it to Methylmercury, a powerful neurotoxin that bio-accumulates in shellfish and fish, and is readily absorbed by biological tissue, and more toxic to humans and wildlife alike at low doses than elemental mercury and which poses developmental, hormonal, & neurological threats to both humans & wildlife.
*high level exposure to Methylmercury is known as Minamata disease previously, Chisso-Minamata Disease, strange disease, sauntering disease, ominously, “dancing cat disease”
*~ 15 million ASG miners including 4.5 million women directly impacting 100 million people in 70 Countries produce ~ 25 - 40% of the World's gold supply for jewelry making mercury pollution our Global issue.
"ASGM is the primary source of gold production in Ecuador, accounting for 85% of total national production. Ecuador ranks fourth in Latin America in both estimated gold production and total number or artisanal and small-scale gold miners"
According to Environmental Justice Atlas, ASGM in the district of Portovelo-Zaruma, the oldest and largest of its kind in Ecuador composed of ~ 10,000 local ASG miners, has 85 #mercury amalgamation facilities along the rivers of Calera and Puyango processing local ore and vaporizing #mercury to the environment and dumping the deadly toxic mercury-cyanide waste tailings in the rivers polluting through to Peru and ending up in the Pacific Ocean making #mercury pollution, a Global issue.
According to Ecuadorian Deputy Mining Minister Henry Troy July 31, 2018, “Illegal mining in Ecuador is a plague causing incalculable harm”
According to Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime estimates that Ecuador produced 12 tons of gold in 2013, of which only 3 tons were from legal gold mines. Jaime Jarrín, the Director General of Arcom, the Ecuadorian Agencia de Regulación y Control Minero, said in April 2013 that he believed true production was between 15 and 20 tons.

"Mercury, a neuro-, nephro-, and immunotoxic used in gold mining is a global pollutant, bio-accumulating, mainly through the aquatic food chain, resulting in a serious health hazard for children. The development of the child in utero and early in life is at particular risk. Mercury is ubiquitous and persistent exposure can cause acute and chronic intoxication at low levels of exposure"
"Women of childbearing age around world suffering toxic levels of mercury. Study finds excessive levels of the metal, which can seriously harm unborn children, in women from Alaska to Indonesia, due to gold mining, industrial pollution and fish-rich diets"
"Minamata disease (Japanese) is a neurological syndrome caused by severe mercury poisoning 1st discovered in Minamata city in 1965 from the release of methylmercury in the industrial wastewater from the Chisso Corporation's chemical factory, which continued from 1932 to 1968"
July 1997, four decades after horrible cases of #MercuryPoisoning made #Minamata Bay synonymous with #environmental catastrophe, the Japanese regional government declared the fish in the bay to be safe to eat
Join us and our ailing #Planet in support of Shinobu Sakamoto, a congenital #Minamata #methylmercury disease fetus victim survivor globally speaking on behalf of all Minamata victims from the (COP2) Minamata Convention on Mercury, November 2018 hosted by UN Environment Geneva, Switzerland call to end #mercury poisoning and #MakeMercuryHistory as **global toxic deadly mercury emissions surged 20% in 5 years
"Effect of ASGM in Southern Ecuador is causing considerable environmental impacts, the most important of which are related to the discharge of metals, metalloids and cyanide into adjacent rivers. The majority of Hg emitted by gold smelters being deposited within 1 km of the emission source contaminating the urban areas with a mix of lead, mercury, manganese, and various cyanides eventually flushed into adjacent river systems poisoning the water and killing all aquatic life in the area"

*The Material Safety Data Sheet lists Borax as a health hazard of 1, the same as baking soda and salt. Borax is classified as non-carcinogenic and a mild skin irritant?
*The Journal of Health Pollution published research that proved more than twice as much, and up to 10 times more gold was recovered from milled ore using #Borax as a flux than mercury amalgamation, and without need of investment in new processing equipment and up to 30% faster than with mercury amalgamation?
*#Borax is a component of many detergents, cosmetics, and enamel glazes. It is used to make buffer solutions in biochemistry, as a fire retardant, as an anti-fungal compound, in the manufacture of fiberglass, as a flux in metallurgy, neutron-capture shields for radioactive sources, a texturing agent in cooking, as a precursor for other boron compounds, and along with its inverse, boric acid, is useful as an insecticide?
*According to Appel and Na-Oy (2012) Gold extraction with #Borax for ASG miners has successfully been tested and operational in the Philippines, Indonesia, Tanzania, Bolivia and Zimbabwe for decades. ~ 15,000 ASG miners in a small area of Luzon, the main island in the northern portion of the Philippines, use this method exclusively reporting as much as 3 times Au recovery than mercury?
