Golden Gamble. Gold mining in the Philippines, a dirty business
More films about the Philippines: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/philippines/ - The use of child labour in the Philippine’s Paracale, or ‘Goldtown’, is widespread - Extracting gold involves diving into mud-filled shafts and using toxic mercury - Poverty and lack of alternative jobs force people into this highly dangerous work - Many die young due to work accidents or breathing problems, others develop chronic illness The Philippines’ town of Paracale was dubbed “Goldtown” for its rich deposits of the precious metal. Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

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.

what lies beneath-smalle scale mining story
The Philippine deposits of gold, copper, chromium and nickel are considered as the 5th largest in the world. In 2009, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) estimated the country's gold reserves at 5,080,785,289 tons, based accordingly on the bureau's consolidation of resource inventory data supplied by mining companies. Forty provinces that have gold deposits practice different ways of mining gold that has been hand down from their ancestors since 3rd century. The Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining (ASGM) is very common to the rural areas of the Philippines because of the constant surge in the price of gold and easy way out of poverty. ASGM, which occurs in more than 70 countries, provides income to an estimated 10 - 15 million miners including 4.5 million women and 1 million children. The sector produces about 500 to 800 tonnes of gold per annum, which accounts for about 20 to 30 percent of the world's gold supply. Despite of this, destruction of environment and human health is at stake. The use of mercury (Hg) in ASGM posed a very dangerous threat to the health of the miners. It contains potent neurotoxin that impairs brain function, lowers intelligence and causes hearing loss. It also affects women in terms of miscarriages and birth defects. This element also destroys the environment by polluting freshwater bodies. Moreover, small scale mining practices such as the use of dynamite in making tunnels is one of the cause of landslides and degradation of the mountain. This photo story will focus on the environment and health issues pose by the artisanal and small-scale gold mining practices in the Philippines and it will also showcase how the players such as the miners, townspeople and the government are dealing with it. My objective in making this story is to educate the people about the reality that small scale mining is dangerous but a kind of livelihood that is essential in the national development of the country. It aims to call on the attention of the government to regulate and supervise this kind of livelihood for the benefit of the miners and the companies.

Illegal gold mines in the Philippines' "Goldtown" in 360.
Watch "Golden Gamble" on RTD: https://rtd.rt.com/films/golden-gamble/ The Philippines banned compressor mining in 2012 but crews still operate as people have no other way of making a living. Miners risk their health on a daily basis spending hours submerged in water which is often contaminated. Divers use a hose attached to a homemade compressor to breathe, meaning the air they use is often polluted with carbon monoxide and diesel fumes. The miners’ greatest fear is the air flow being blocked or a tunnel caving in. When processing the gold, miners use mercury which is highly toxic and can cause brain damage.

On the 23rd year of Philippine Mining Act of 1995
"March 3 is the 23rd year of the implementation of the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 which caused the landgrab of the ancestral domain of indigenous peoples all over the country where minerals are abundantly found. Indigenous peoples experience continuous, intensified militarization and destruction of their communities due to destructive mining operations. Even the so-called due-process through "free, prior and informed consent" (FPIC) is violated. On the other hand, this process serves as a means to deprive indigenous peoples of their ancestral lands. Now, we face the issue of changing the present constitution which will lead to the worsening condition of the indigenous peoples through the constitutionalization of 100% foreign-ownership of mining. This is the aim of our lawmakers -- to give our lands to foreign corporations. At present, even the small-scale miners continually experience oppression through the formation of the National Task Force on Mining Challenge that is actually a clearing operation to get rid of the small scale miners and pave the way for large-scale mining operations. They say that they intend to protect nature and the environment but the areas they target belong to the ancestral domain of indigenous peoples, who safeguards and ensures that their lands are preserved and taken care of. The Cordillera Peoples Alliance therefore reiterates our call for communities and organizations to continue our struggle, our fight, to oppose charter change and the plans of the government through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), to forcibly displace the small-scale miners from their lands." - Santi Mero, CPA Vice-Chairperson for Internal Affairs
Balbalan Small-Scale Gold Mines
One of the untapped rich natural resources of Balbalan is tons of mineral deposits especially gold deposits. A certain location in the ancestral domains of the Banao Tribe here in Balbalan was accidentally discovered by hunters that contains grains of gold. This place has become today the Gaang Gold Small-Scale Mines. This gold mines produces kilos of semi-purified gold concentrates sold at the mining site at P1,160.00 per gram. Semi-purified gold concentrates are produced here through the use of improvised ball mills run by waters of a creek diverted to several lines of canals. This gold mines is managed by the people of the Banao tribe through the establishment of an association that governs through the principles of tribal peacepacts. So far, all those miners working privately to this gold mines are all natives of Balbalan. The said association does not allow others who are not residents of Balbalan to work in this gold mine.

Although banned, the town's small-scale gold mining industry employs different generations of workers, from grown-up men to minors. CCTV's Barnaby Lo spent time with Paracale's miners, some as young as 15, and their families. The government has pledged to stop child labor in the province, even giving families alternative sources of livelihood such as fishing. But for the town's residents, a bucket full of fish is nothing compared to an an ounce of gold.

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.

State Police Interrupt a Gold Mining Operation in Oregon!
Our mining claim neighbors called the Cops! People living on the other side of the river where our mining claim is and not liking our mining, called the cops. It appears our neighbors just did not want their liberal utopia disturbed so they call the cops to harass us. The police were very cool as I knew one of them from checking our permits on another river couple months earlier and an Oregon DEQ meeting he showed up at. The rude lady yells to at from other side of river "you need a permit to do that"...we had them of course. She also told cops we were disrespecful and rude to her...which was totally false. She made up her own narrative about what was happening to justify her being annoyed. Liberal tactic # 3, change the narrative or just plain lie! This is the short version of the video, filmed on the Applegate River in Oregon while we were LEGALLY GOLD MINING! In the video, it is a continuous video, shot on my GoPro camera that I was wearing on my head. The video shows me mining and moving around with no editing to show what actually goes on while mining. Then my buddy is helping me move rocks while I'm using a sub-surface dredge...then the cops show up , and I tell him is where the action starts. UPDATE Jan 1st, 2015: In response to some of the comments saying we are uneducated, rednecks and other stuff...the guys in the video are as follows. One is a millionaire CPA, another a self employed business owner, two others are also self employed and owns a body shop and the other an internet marketer and freelance videographer, and lastly one is the son of the CPA guy and currently in college. Oregon Mining Law: Next time this happens, I will ask the State Police to cite the offending people who disrupt our mining operation based on this Oregon Mining Law: "ORS 517.133 Interfering with a mining operation. (1) As used in this section, "lawful mining operation" means any small scale mining operation that is in full compliance with state and federal laws.

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.
