Abstract

Artisanal Small-scale Mining (ASM) has recently increased with increase in high gold prize. Populations of small-scale mining in PNG are rural bashed miners who use rudimentary sluice box and gold panning dish. The small-scale  activities have increased due to very high gold prize, consequently environmental problem arises such mercury pollution and other safety hazard associated with mining and processing of alluvial gold. This paper presents the current grass-roots alluvial mining practice with its associated environmental problem and suggestions of ways to minimize those hazards while increasing gold
production. It also outlines mechanisms for sustainable development of model that to be in placed for continuous monitoring safe mercury use and efficient alluvial mining for improved recovery to sustain rural bashed population.

I have been slow trying to obtain the domain name for the journal’s new website so decided to put the 2007 issue for download. You can download the 2007 issue here.

I have received 2 articles but need some more so that at least 5 articles would be the minimum to produce an issue.
