THE PROBLEM WITH GOLD/MINING
Gold demand worldwide is ever increasing therefore the old mines cannot meet up with the needed supply, especially when big orders are being made due to so many factors which includes; political, environmental, economic and technological. And most persons who buy gold just hold them unnecessarily even when they don’t make any good use of them, believing it is an asset that is not a liability to anyone, so it can be kept for as long as they wish. Also policymakers with monetary policy will continuously affect the demand of gold worldwide most especially as the US Dollar is the reserve currency of the global market.
Mining although might have a positive impact to the community where it is done but the negative side is mind blowing since it has displaced so many from their homes and make them vulnerable to harassment from governmental securities, together with internal crisis because almost all of them suffer from the mining but not all of them benefit from it, their health and livelihood has also have its downside with access to clean water and providing of food for their families becomes more and more difficult as these mining is carried out. Most wildlife has also faced their own downside because of gold mining as they watch helplessly their habitat being destroyed before their own eyes. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, it is estimated that more than 24 miles of streams that holds the world largest sockeye salmon fishery will be destroyed in Alaska Bristol Bay because of gold and copper mining that they want to carry out there. So small communities that depend solely on fishing will see how their means of livelihood is being taken out from them as they battle environmental pollution from the emission of greenhouse gases and toxins released from wasted ore.
