Sierra Leone Pastor finds 706 Carat Diamond which could be the 10th Largest EVER
A Christian pastor working in a Sierra Leone mine has found a 706-carat diamond, which could be the tenth largest ever found. The precious stone was found by Emmanuel Momoh, who was working in the Kono region, in the east of the country. It will be sold in Sierra Leone in a 'transparent' bidding process to benefit the country, according to a government statement. It read: 'A 706-carat diamond was presented to President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma yesterday evening. 'Receiving the diamond President Koroma thanked the chief and his people for not smuggling the diamond out of the country.' Diamond expert Paul Zimnisky said it could be 'between the 10th and 15th largest gem-diamonds ever recovered' and such a find is very rare in a small mine. He said: 'Most recent exceptional diamond discoveries have been made by large commercial miners that mine very large volumes of kimberlite ore and process it with advanced equipment. 'Artisanal mining tends to produce smaller, lower quality diamonds because the diamonds suffer breakage and erosion.' Zimnisky said the stone would likely be sold outside Sierra Leone, despite the government's assertion, for better access to buyers. Without a professional assessment of the diamond's potential flaws and colouring it is impossible to value the stone. However, a polished stone cut from the Jonker, which is the 10th largest gem-diamond ever recovered until now at 726 carats, will go on sale in Hong Kong in May. A single 25-carat portion is likely to sell for $2.2 million to $3.6 million (£1.78 million to £2.75 million), or $88,000 to $144,000 for a single carat, Zimnisky said. A 1,111-carat diamond was discovered at a mine in Botswana in 2015, the biggest find for more than a century. That gem is second in size only to the Cullinan diamond which was unearthed in South Africa in 1905, at 3,106 carats uncut, according to the Cape Town Diamond Museum. The Cullinan was cut into several gems, including two set into the sceptre and crown of the British Crown Jewels. Historically, Sierra Leone has had a controversial role in the diamond industry. The sale of 'blood diamonds' helped finance civil wars across Africa in the 1990s and often funded military dictatorships on a continent that the London Diamond Bourse estimates provides 65 percent of the world's diamonds. Rebels allowed traders to exploit diamond mines and ship the gems abroad via Liberia. In one of the most notorious cases, former Liberian warlord Charles Taylor was found guilty of supporting the rebels in exchange for diamonds mined by slave labour. The district where the 706-carat diamond was discovered is where US-Belgian businessman Michel Desaedeleer, accused of enslavement and diamond trafficking during Sierra Leone's civil war, is alleged to have committed his crimes. He died in jail in September before he could stand trial. The death toll from Sierra Leone's civil war is estimated at 120,000. The country has a population of roughly six million people, making it one of Africa's deadliest conflicts in recent history.

Philippines' Gold Mining Regulations Cause Problems for Local Prospectors
Gold mining has long been a risky business, with prospectors gambling with their lives in search of riches. In the Philippines, the government hopes to reduce the risk and increase profits by banning the most dangerous practices, lowering the number of small operators and replacing them with big, foreign firms.

Philippines illegal gold mine brings misfortune
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe It's a mountain that's supposed to make dreams come true - Mt Diwalwal in southern Philippines is said to hold the country's biggest gold deposit -but for some miners, its brought misfortunes instead. Twenty-one people were washed away in a landslide in Diwalwal caused by Typhoon Bopha, but their deaths were barely noticed because the mine site is one of the most lawless, illegal mine sites in the country - controlled by private armed groups. The roads were blocked shortly after the landslide which made it very difficult for aid and rescue teams to arrive. Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports from Compestela Valley.

Balabag: A documentary film on illegal mining in Zamboanga del Sur
Balabag: A documentary film on illegal mining in Zamboanga del Sur The illegal gold mining activities in the sleepy town of Bayog in the southern Philippine province of Zamboanga del Sur have been going on for the past 15 years. Small scale miners have illegally claimed hundreds of hectares of lands in Balabag in the mountain village of Depore and since then have caused tremendous environment pollution. The illegal miners used cyanide and nitric acid and other hazardous chemicals including mercury to process gold. And despite these problems, Filipino authorities are hapless in putting a stop to illegal mining in Bayog where miners blasted their way through tunnels with improvised explosives. Many laborers and miners had died from landslides and collapsed tunnels, but the greed over the precious metal is stronger over personal safety and the unabated mining still continues.

Philippines Black Market is China's Source of Cheaper Gold
High world gold prices are a boon to small-scale miners in the southern Philippines these days, and a mine worker can earn ten times as much as a laborer in Manila. Mr Landa needs it to support his eight children. [Camilo Landa, Mine Worker, Father of Eight]: "I'll be able to buy rice to eat. I can pay our loans. I'm happy." But while miners are flourishing, the Philippine government is losing out. By law, gold produced in the country's small mines should be sold to the Central Bank, to pump up their reserves. But the bank's purchases have plummeted by 98 percent this year. Many point out that a newly imposed tax on gold is the reason behind the rise in smuggling. Officials and sources say the gold is being smuggled to Hong Kong, before disappearing into China. [Leo Jasareno, Director, Bureau of Mines and Geosciences]: "Our suspicion is that it's either black market or smuggled out of the country. So 80 percent of gold, lost." [Arthur Uy, Owner of Small Mines and Local Governor]: "The black market now is flourishing, so they would sell now their produce now to the black market." Reports of illegal sales to China are unverified, but official data from Hong Kong shows gold shipments from the Philippines went from a mere 24 pounds in the year 2000 to 90 tons in 2010. But in a puzzling discrepancy, Philippine customs only accounted for three percent of that volume. The government is set to impose strict control on small scale mines. Illegal mining now accounts for up to 15 percent of global gold output.

Opportunities and pitfalls of mining in the Philippines
As of 2009, despite the country's last decade positive economic growth, 26.5% of its population or 25 million Filipinos were still living under the poverty line. 75% of those were living in rural or mar- ginalized areas. They depend disproportionately on natural resources and are thus more vulnerable to environmental degradation. Mining industries and renewable energy generation represent a clear link between poverty and environment. Although nat- ural resources have been identified nationally as an important growth driver and the country is 5th most mineral-rich in the world, this sector has yet to con- tribute significantly to economic growth and human development.
Mining for Gold and Silver on Tribe's Ancestral Land
In recent years, increasing demand for mineral resources has pushed mining companies to go farther and deeper in search of new deposits. Among these new frontiers is the homeland of the Subanens - a semi-nomadic tribe in the southern Philippines - where a foreign company is mining what the tribe considers a sacred mountain. Heda Bayron visited the tribe's home in the village of Canatuan and reports on a community trying to safeguard its traditions as the global commodities trade encroaches.

You can watch top class Documentaries from National Geographic Documentaries. Content Golden Gamble: RT documentary discovers desperation & peril driving Philippines gold divers The “gold town” of Paracale sees its residents risking their lives every day as they dive down into murky, water-filled mine shafts in search of precious ore. RTD travelled to Paracale to discover the poverty, child labor and constant danger the prospectors face. Although the Philippines government banned underwater gold mining in 2012, the dangerous business continues to thrive in the coastal province as locals struggle to make ends meet. To make a living, the miners dive some 10 meters (30 feet) to reach the bottom of a narrow mud-filled shaft, equipped with nothing but goggles and long thin tubes for breathing. Many of those who dive in the hope of finding gold are children. As the gold miners descend into the pits, they risk never coming back. “While you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave,” goes a somber saying that the miners use. The fear of being buried alive if a mine collapses is constant, but there are numerous other perils, too. The fumes of toxic mercury, used in illegal mining, are one, poisoning the air, the ground and the water. Muddy water in the shafts causes skin diseases.

Ninja Miners of Mongolia
A 21st-century gold rush is taking place in Mongolia. Its huge gold reserves were only discovered after the former Soviet satellite started democratic reforms in 1990. Now, gold fever has gripped the country, with an estimated 100,000 Mongolians working as informal miners, many of them herders who have left their flocks behind. Known as "ninja" miners — with their plastic gold-panning basins slung over their backs, they resemble TV's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — they do not possess the necessary mining licenses and thus operate illegally.

Kenya intends to ban the use of mercury in the artisanal and small-scale gold mining to protect workers and conserve the environment.With research showing that small-scale gold miners in Kenya are among the most exposed to mercury in the world, the government has instituted measures to phase out use of the toxic chemical in gold mining.According to Mining Principal Secretary John Omenge, the government is putting in place a legal framework that will outlaw the use of mercury in the subsector.“The government is committed to phasing out the use of mercury among artisanal gold miners because of growing health concerns.For this we are putting in place a legal structure to stop use of mercury,” he said.He said that through a grant from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in partnership with the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, research is ongoing to find alternative ways to extract gold.The GEF is spearheading the campaign to stop the use of mercury by artisanal miners and has set up a $45 million fund to support governments creating policies and market incentives that favour gold which uses less or no mercury in its extraction.The use of mercury is the most common method used by small scale miners in recovering gold nuggets from soil and sediment.Mercury and gold settle to form an amalgam, then the gold is extracted by vapourising the mercury through heating.The miners use rudimentary equipment — blowtorch or stoves at home.The miners inhale the vapour from the amalgamation, to the detriment of their health.Cyanide, another dangerous substance, is used by such miners on tailings (waste ore) to extract more gold that combines with mercury to make compounds dispersed in water and taken up in the human food chain.Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Burundi have also announced plans to phase out use of mercury in artisanal mining of gold.According to the World Health Organisation, prolonged and high exposure to the chemical by inhalation damages the nervous, digestive and immune systems.Pregnant women also risk giving birth to babies with congenital diseases.It can also contaminate water bodies and subsequently all fish.When ingested, mercury can accumulate in living organisms and serious damage the nervous system.Kenya, Burkina Faso, Colombia, Guyana, Indonesia, Peru, Mongolia and the Philippines are some of the countries that use mercury for gold extraction.Across the globe, there are about 15 million artisanal and small scale gold miners, five million of whom are women and children.It is estimated that 1,400 tonnes of mercury is released into the environment annually by some 70 countries that use it in extracting gold. #Kenya, #mercury, #gold, #mines
