Illegal Chinese Gold Mining in Ghana
 
02:18
The Chinese regime is Africa's largest trade partner and miners in countries such as Ghana increasingly rely on Chinese equipment and capital. But there are concerns that Chinese entrepreneurs are involved in illegal mining activities beyond the view of Ghana's regulatory regime, and locals say their share of the profits is shrinking. Foreign gold seekers are nothing new in Ghana, but a new wave of prospectors are now making their presence felt, this time from China. Ghana's laws say foreign companies are only allowed to work on large, open-pit operations. But campaigners say Chinese entrepreneurs are also illegally controlling small-scale operations behind the scenes, typically through a local intermediary. Ghana is Africa's second largest gold exporter. More than 100,000 Ghanaians work in these small, dark mine shafts. Together they produce about 20 percent of the country's gold. The Chinese regime is Africa's largest trade partner with two-way volume reaching $100-billion U.S. dollars in 2010. Some welcome the Chinese because they bring necessary capital and equipment. But some workers in Ghana's pits accuse Chinese entrepreneurs of increasing their share of local profits. [Joseph Ben, Former Illegal Miner]: "The Chinese people bring their equipment which makes the work easy for you and they know the work too, but when you are sick they don't pay your hospital bills you have to use your own money." Mr. Ben says he used to work in a Chinese run mine where he was paid 80 Ghana cedi, or about $50 U.S. dollars, per month. Now he's paid twice as much in a mine owned by Ghanaians. Last month the police arrested 25 Chinese miners said to be working illegally around the village of Wasa. The association of communities affected by mining says Chinese companies have built networks of local people, including miners, local chiefs and security agents, to give them cover for illegal mining.

South Africa's Illegal Gold Mines
 
10:37
In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

State Police Interrupt a Gold Mining Operation in Oregon!
 
15:39
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. (2) A person commits the crime of interfering with a mining operation if the person intentionally: (a) Interferes with a lawful mining operation; or (b) Stops, or causes to be stopped, a lawful mining operation. (3) Interfering with a mining operation is a Class C misdemeanor. [1999 c.354 §6]" Here is the GoPro camera I was using: http://amzn.to/19yYus6

How Soldiers C@ught Chinese Galamsey In Ghana   YouTube
 
13:05
I had a discussion the other day with a person whose understanding of social realities is normally quite profound. But he shocked he when he told me that he thought the Government's approach to the galamsey problem was wrong. “You've got to invest in the people doing it!” he said. “You've got to incentivise them to move from galamsey into land reclamation plus reafforestation,” he said. “But it was concern for the unemployed that started the problem in the first place,” I explained. “In 1989, the PNDC passed a law that was intended to empower “Small-scale Miners” to undertake mining, under licence from the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources, so that the practice of allowing only large companies to benefit from our mineral resources would end.” “Yes, I am aware of that. . .” he interjected. “Well, what the lawmakers of the the time did not anticipate fully was the nature of the gold trade itself or the character of the ordinary Ghanaian. Whereas the law-makes thought of enabling the “small-scale” or artisanal miner to earn a “decent living”, some Ghanaians merely saw the passing of the law as a means of earning a “cheapliving.” You got a licence; bought a few implements; and you went into the bush to look for gold – especially in areas where disused ancient mines (known in Twi as nkomena) indicated the presence of gold.” “But the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources was supposed to take the licences to Parliament for ratification? Before they could be used?” “Precisely! The Ministry and the Lands Commission neglected to perform their responsibilities under the law! Up to today, the Lands Commission has NOT said a word about its failure to take “small-scale” mining licences to Parliament for ratification! "Yet the requirement amounts to no less than a CONSTITUTIONAL order!! That's what I mean by the character of the Ghanaian. The Constitution-writers realised that mining licences could be abused, and so put in that provision to give future law-makers a chance of approving or disapproving of what the civil servants in the Land Commission and the Ministry would have done. They, as Ghanaians, realised only too well that corruption could creep in, to make a nonsense of such a well-intended measure!” “It has turned out to be more than a nonsense? It's now a national disaster?” “Absolutely! Instead of using the licences themselves, the licence-owners (most of whom obtained their licences not because they had any desire to operate as miners nor because they had a record of being good businessmen, but because they were the footsoldiers of politicians)....” “Jobs for the boys?” “A classic example! That's why, if you look at the issue clearly, you will find that the leaders of the small-scale miners are always threatening the NPP Government with political action. They will demonstrate! They will not vote for Nana Addo! They want Operation Vanguard disbanded right now! And so on.” “Meanwhile?” “The small-scale miners had all found it easier to cash in on their licences by becoming the agents of Chinese and Ghanaian businessmen, who possessed the capital to import excavators and bulldozers and the mercury and cyanide ussed in gold-winning”. “Dangerous stuff? And yet people are still pretending -- despite the evidence to the contrary -- that galamsey is “small-scale mining?” “Yep! The stupidity of some members of Ghana's political class is beyond imagination. If a Western mining company so much as spilt ten ounces of poisonous chemicals into any of our water-bodies, we would take the matter to the United Nations Security Council, no less. People would march! Some would shout: “coupd'etat!” But because galamsey is being carried out by Ghanaians in collaboration with some citizens from a 'friendly' country, China, they excuse it.” “Yes; they endlessly parrot the phrase “galamseyers must be allowed to earn a living”! “Yie! Yie! Yie! Yie! What sort of country is this?” “Hmm! It is a country where some people demand to be allowed to destroy the drinking water of others, in order that they should 'be able to earn a living!'” “Have you heard the like of it before anywhere?” “In the Philippines, if you are merely caught with drugs, they shoot you without bothering to take you to court!” “Singapore recently hanged a Ghanaian caught with amphetamines – not even the more notorious drugs such as heroin or cocaine.!” “And in China, where our most destructive galamsey equipment comes from, if you're caught polluting water with industrial waste... anywater, not just drinking water....” “God help you!” “Yes! Let me quote you a report from China:

CEO Comments on $2.5B Illegal Gold Mining Business In Colombia
 
05:01
KITCO NEWS — U.S. Global Investor’s CEO Frank Holmes joins Kitco News to talk geopolitics, the Chinese yuan and illegal mining overtaking cocaine trafficking in Colombia. News broke recently that illegal gold mining has been occurring in the South American country, so much so, that Colombian President Santos came out saying that it brings in roughly $2.5 billion annually and is a major issue of concern. According to Holmes, the issue is with the country’s leadership. 'Santos has sadly lost control of rule of law,' Holmes said. ‘The real, major disappointment has been the leadership of going after these thugs that are hurting mine workers,’ he added, noting that there are very, high-grade deposits in Colombia. Commenting the gold price ahead of U.S. Thanksgiving, Holmes says it is really the imminent rate hikes that are causing short-term volatility in prices. February comex gold futures are down on the day and were last quoted down $2.40 at $1,070.80 an ounce. ‘Thoughts are that if rates rise 25 basis points, gold is going to get clobbered,’ Holmes said. ‘I don’t think so…the real number we’re going to follow in 2016 is CPI (consumer price index).’ Subscribe to TheStreetTV on YouTube: http://t.st/TheStreetTV For more content from TheStreet visit: http://thestreet.com Check out all our videos: http://youtube.com/user/TheStreetTV Follow TheStreet on Twitter: http://twitter.com/thestreet Like TheStreet on Facebook: http://facebook.com/TheStreet Follow TheStreet on LinkedIn: http://linkedin.com/company/theStreet Follow TheStreet on Google+: http://plus.google.com/+TheStreet

Well while Chinese money is welcome. It looks like - in certain circumstances - some workers are not. At least 125 Chinese nationals involved in small-scale gold mining in Ghana are being held in custody by the country's immigration authorities. They were arrested for a breach of Ghanaian law, prohibiting foreigners from small-scale mining. The BBC's Akwasi Sarpong reports.

Golden Gamble. Gold mining in the Philippines, a dirty business
 
25:41
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.

Poisoned By The Gold Rush
 
14:23
Gold is quickly becoming the new cocaine in Colombia. The precious metal is now the currency of choice for individuals and groups engaging in illicit trade in the South American country. That's because unlike cocaine, it's perfectly legal to carry gold, and unlike money, it's virtually untraceable. But there are some major side-effects of Colombia's new gold rush that locals are curiously quiet about: erectile dysfunction and brain damage. VICE News correspondent Monica Villamizar travelled to the Antioquia, Colombia, a hotbed of illegal gold mining, to investigate an unprecedented surge in impotence and neurological problems that experts are attributing to mercury, an essential gold-digging element.

Galamsey Operations in Kyebi Area
 
02:46
In my previous article on illegal mining in Ghana, I focused on how foreigners especially Chinese have “bought” the local leaders to rob our nation of its resources and pride. Within some weeks after I wrote on the topic, the security officials and the government took a stern look at the practice and caused the arrest and deportation of many foreigners who were involved in mining without a license to operate. During a visit to commission a water project at Kyebi last year, President Mahama remarked, “…excuse me to say, Akyem Abuakwa has turned into the headquarters of galamsey in Ghana. I came here by air and if you see how the land is being destroyed, it saddens me.” The President later apologized on this statement. I strongly believe the Presidents apology was not necessary as it was and is a statement of fact. As a New Year dawns 2016, I decided to visit some of the towns and Villages specifically Afiasa and Apapam in the Kyebi Area in the Eastern region of Ghana. My expectations had been a reduced case of the destructions and menace of illegal mining activities in the region. It turned out ironically that “aluta continua”. Local men and women were busily excavating land and destroying forest and cocoa farms in search of Gold dusts. I do not intend to discuss the effects of illegal mining in this article but to urge us all to take responsibility of our environment because our natural resources is all we have. Gold and all minerals in Ghana are precious and need to be mined to support our weakly economic. Of course we cannot sit on Gold and diamond to east sand. Note that in Ghana we are blessed with the prospect of minerals on every part of our land. The question however is that shall we overcome the cost of extraction and damage to the environment on mining in particular place in a particular manner? Simply, is such illegal mining profitable when you consider the damage to the environment? Kofi Bonsu (actual name withheld) who works as a supervisor for a sponsor to a Galamsey operations remarked “Are you thinking of filling back land and planting trees? No way have you just taken your Gold and leave.” It is clear that there is no such thing as mining license and EPA Permits in their dictionary. This is how the Galamsey operations affect our natural resources. The Minerals Commission offers license to qualified and responsible mining companies in order to control and guide the operations of mining in the country. It also ensures compliance with Ghana's Mining and Mineral Laws and Regulation through effective monitoring. It is clear that the Mineral Commission is defunct in monitoring the activities of mining operations in Ghana. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Security Services of the country have their due responsibilities. What ought we to do as individuals. We all have a duty to protect our natural resources. If you have any complaints or suspicious of any mining activity undertaken in your community, Immediately inform the authorities or the Mineral Commissions on hotlines: 030 2771318, 030 2779823.

He's a Frenchman who first came to Afghanistan to train Afghan security services before venturing into the emerald trade. He sees a huge chance here to exploit a market that could easily increase in value twenty or thirty-fold, but the obstacles are not inconsiderable. Just to get to the mines Raphael has to travel the 150 Kilometres from Kabul to Panjshir, right through Taliban kidnap country. When he gets there he finds an industry in the dark ages, where homemade pyrotechnics are exploded in poorly dug mineshafts, killing many miners and ruining the quality of up to 75% of the stones they dig. "If you see the damage being done to these stones... so much is lost", Yama Torabi from Integrity Watch Afghanistan tells us. The government here remains hopelessly out of touch with the industry that "still (uses) a mining law adopted 100 years ago". But as the country prepares for elections and Europeans like Raphael open up the gem trade here, could this be a beacon of hope for the future?

Ghana’s Mining Fiscal Regime: H2 2014
 
00:31
Ghana is rich in natural resources such as gold, industrial diamonds, bauxite and manganese. The country’s economic stability is highly dependent on mineral resources.

How gold-diggers ruin their health
 
02:13
I filmed this in Ghana in 2013. Between 2007 and then, a frenzied gold rush took place, spearheaded by thirsty, illegal Chinese immigrants. The type of gold mining they engaged in is called small-scale or alluvial mining, which by law is available only to Ghanaian citizens. The Ghana government expelled most of the illegal Chinese after a turbulent period. Meanwhile, the price of gold has plunged, and the allure has lost its luster. When small-scale miners find gold in usually tiny amounts, they amalgamate the gold with mercury, which is highly toxic. After the amalgamation, the mercury is burned off, exposing the miners to the dangerous fumes.

South Africa Gold Mining Could Decline Precipitately | Rick Rule

https://sdbullion.com http://www.silverdoctors.com/precious-metals-market-podcast/ Gold mining equities have been strong amid downward pressure in the precious metal markets. Hope regarding further mergers and acquisitions has had a positive effect on the miners. Political uncertainties in South Africa may have an impact on gold production there. If political uncertainties remain, Rule's suspicion is that gold production there will fall precipitately over the next five years. Issues in Mexico are concerning as well with regard to mining. However, Rule says this doesn’t mean people shouldn’t invest in miners there.

Galamsey miners demands regulation
 
03:58
Artisanal Mining Operators within the catchment of Tarkwa, a major mining area in Ghana, have appealed to government to mainstream their activities to solve the problem of unemployment as well as support the livelihood needs of many poor families. Viasat One News’ Takoradi Video Journalist, Kwesi Agyei Annim reports from artisanal mining sites in Tarkwa, where many unemployed youths get their daily bread. This is Efua-Nta in Tarkwa where artisanal mining is thriving. These Chinese-made hammer milling washing machines, popularly called Changfa, have become the game changer in separating gold from ordinary waste. One Changfa machine employs over 10 workers and there are over 20 of such machines in this area of artisanal mining operations. Men have always dominated mining, but over here, women are not left out of the business as they provide crucial supporting role.

Galamsey Operations in Kyebi Area  part  4
 
00:56
In my previous article on illegal mining in Ghana, I focused on how foreigners especially Chinese have “bought” the local leaders to rob our nation of its resources and pride. Within some weeks after I wrote on the topic, the security officials and the government took a stern look at the practice and caused the arrest and deportation of many foreigners who were involved in mining without a license to operate. During a visit to commission a water project at Kyebi last year, President Mahama remarked, “…excuse me to say, Akyem Abuakwa has turned into the headquarters of galamsey in Ghana. I came here by air and if you see how the land is being destroyed, it saddens me.” The President later apologized on this statement. I strongly believe the Presidents apology was not necessary as it was and is a statement of fact. As a New Year dawns 2016, I decided to visit some of the towns and Villages specifically Afiasa and Apapam in the Kyebi Area in the Eastern region of Ghana. My expectations had been a reduced case of the destructions and menace of illegal mining activities in the region. It turned out ironically that “aluta continua”. Local men and women were busily excavating land and destroying forest and cocoa farms in search of Gold dusts. I do not intend to discuss the effects of illegal mining in this article but to urge us all to take responsibility of our environment because our natural resources is all we have. Gold and all minerals in Ghana are precious and need to be mined to support our weakly economic. Of course we cannot sit on Gold and diamond to east sand. Note that in Ghana we are blessed with the prospect of minerals on every part of our land. The question however is that shall we overcome the cost of extraction and damage to the environment on mining in particular place in a particular manner? Simply, is such illegal mining profitable when you consider the damage to the environment? Kofi Bonsu (actual name withheld) who works as a supervisor for a sponsor to a Galamsey operations remarked “Are you thinking of filling back land and planting trees? No way have you just taken your Gold and leave.” It is clear that there is no such thing as mining license and EPA Permits in their dictionary. This is how the Galamsey operations affect our natural resources. The Minerals Commission offers license to qualified and responsible mining companies in order to control and guide the operations of mining in the country. It also ensures compliance with Ghana's Mining and Mineral Laws and Regulation through effective monitoring. It is clear that the Mineral Commission is defunct in monitoring the activities of mining operations in Ghana. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Security Services of the country have their due responsibilities. What ought we to do as individuals. We all have a duty to protect our natural resources. If you have any complaints or suspicious of any mining activity undertaken in your community, Immediately inform the authorities or the Mineral Commissions on hotlines: 030 2771318, 030 2779823.

On October 28, 2014 Bank of Ghana discovered, in a special exercise within the Central Region, that Menzbank was operating microfinance in Kasoa under the guise of gold trading and illegally using the name “Bank”. 2. On March 11, 2015 BOG issued notice number BG/GOV/SEC/2015/04 publishing a list of unlicensed entities operating illegally, including Menzbank. Menzbank then changed its name to “Menzbanc Ghana Company Limited”. 3. On April 13, 2016 BOG issued a notice to warn the general public against the deposit-taking operations of Menzbanc. 4. On July 22, 2016, BOG wrote to Menzbanc cautioning it against its unlicensed deposit-taking activity. 5. On August 2, 2016 BOG invited the management if Menzbanc to a meeting on its unlicensed deposit-taking activity. 6. The company responded in writing on August 3, 2016 and claimed that they were not engaging in deposit-taking activities. 7. On August 16, 2016, the BOG contacted Minerals Commission and Precious Minerals Marketing Company (PMMC) on the licence status of Menzbanc. Minerals Commission confirmed the company had a licence only “to purchase gold locally… and to export same”. However its licence with PMMC had expired. 8. On February 13, 2017, BOG held a another meeting on with representatives of the company. 9. On July 19, 2017, BOG issued another caution letter to the company to desist from taking further deposits. 10. Menzbanc then changed its name to Menzgold. It also informed the BOG of its subsidiary by name “Brew Marketing Limited” where clients were directed to go and purchase the gold and deposit it with Menzgold for “dividend”. 11. BOG conducted further investigations and did three “mystery shopping” transactions by enrolling on the company’s “Gold Vault market”. In the first purchase, no gold was seen throughout the transaction. Menzgold collected the cash with the explanation that they would purchase the gold from Brew Consult. 12. In the second case, on maturity, the mystery shoppers were given a piece of gold. 13. In the third purchase the mystery shoppers were directed to purchase the gold from Brew Marketing Consult, and deposit the gold in its vault where the trading began. 14. On 19th September 2017 Minerals Commission wrote a letter to Menzgold titled “Unauthorised Business Activities,” pointing out to Menzgold that it was in breach of the law and the Licence and that Brew Marketing had not been registered as a licensed buying agent. 15. In June 2018, BOG conducted a joint visit with Minerals Commission to licensed gold traders and refineries in Accra to understand the nature of their operations. The team established that all the companies were engaged in smelting and exporting of gold with the exception of Menzgold that is engaged in the solicitation of deposits from the general public with interest rate between 7%-10% per month to customers based on the quantity of gold purchased. These activities amount to: 1. Engaging in illegal deposit-taking contrary to section 6(1) of the Banks and Specialised Deposit-Taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930), 2. Engaging in unlicensed mineral activity contrary to section 99(1) of the Minerals and Mining Act, 2003 (Act 703), 3. Engaging in illegal capital markets activity in breach of section 109 of the Securities Industry Act, 2016 (Act 929), and 4. A private company inviting the public to deposit money or invest in its business in breach of section 265 of the Companies Act, 1963 (Act 179) and section 207 of Act 929 Kwame Gyan writes: Question: If Menzgold is left as is, and becomes another DKM, God is Love, Pyram (that's a huge possibility) what will you have said afterwards? Should I remind you what you said about DKM, God is Love, Pyram, and all the others when they happened? You do realise that those ones were also making some Ghanaians rich abi? You do realize also that the owners were also Ghanaians? You do realise that they also employed people? Ultimately you are aware of the deaths from shock, loss of lifetime savings etc when the shit hit the fans, right? But you feel you will stand and squat and kneel, and walk and sit and run and jog with Menzgold because of what exactly? Sometimes I wonder how we think. I have stopped wondering why we are where we are after 60-whatever years. I also know where we will be in 60-something years - same place we are today. Have a lovely weekend.

Coal Miners Are Dying Of Black Lung — A Kentucky Law Could Make It Harder To Claim Benefits (HBO)
 
07:32
Kentucky is at the center of what experts are calling the worst black lung epidemic on record. But instead of making it easier for miners to get access to health care, Kentucky’s lawmakers passed a law that may soon hinder miners’ ability to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. The new law, which goes into effect on July 14th, bars federally certified radiologists from assessing coal miners’ X-rays in state black lung workers’ compensation claims. Instead, the state will require that only pulmonologists, physicians whose focus is lung disease, be allowed to judge X-rays for benefit claims. Right now, there are only 11 doctors in Kentucky who are certified to examine X-rays for state benefits claims, and the new law will cut that number down to five.

Philippines Black Market is China's Source of Cheaper Gold
 
01:53
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.
