Complete eradication of mercury in mining not possible, GGMC Commissioner says

By David Papannah and Laurel Sutherland

As the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) continues to pursue the goal of achieving reduced mercury use in mining, Commissioner Newell Dennison has signaled that complete eradication of the chemical in local mining activities may not be possible.

Dennison told Sunday Stabroek that many artisanal miners are unable to access financing to transition into mercury-free mining. This means that the use of the chemical will always be seen as the most profitable means of extracting gold.

Are you aware about this global deadly mercury crisis?

Approximately 18 - 20 million impoverished artisanal and small-scale gold (ASG) miners in ~ 80 countries produce ~20% of the world’s gold supply used for your jewellery, electronics components, your iPads, iPhones, computers.

They collectively discharge 2,000 tonnes of mercury, a potent neurotoxin to our biosphere annually documented in 2021 by Oxford University earth scientists to stay airborne up to one year.
