FEATURE PROJECT: Better Without Mercury

A project to fund responsible artisanal gold miners in Colombia to eliminate mercury pollution, the final step to achieving mercury-free La Fortaleza gold.


The Gualconda mine, Colombia, has eliminated mercury use in their artisanal gold mining operation, but for many years mercury was used to extract gold from the local ore. Today, La Fortaleza Mining Association and Christina T. Miller sustainability consulting are partnering to raise the funds to restore this site.
