METALS

Today, the majority of gold is mined using Open Pit Methods. The methods involve excavating as well as blasting huge holes on the surface of the earth. Surprisingly, only 10g of gold can be got from a ton of rock. This means that the potential for environmental degradation is massive when gold is mined irresponsibly.

 

Using cyanide in gold mining is a big cause for worry for environmentalists. This is because the compound is highly toxic not just to animals but humans alike. Recycling does not need any of cyanide, which means there is less toxic substances to people and wildlife. Our small-scale miners we source from with FairTrade and FairMined metals do not work with cyanide or mercury either.Third-party certified, this gold is extracted by artisanal, small-scale miners in accordance with strict social and environmental rules, is traded fairly at a livable premium, and provides an opportunity for substantial change in the mining industry.

 

*Chains and Earrings findings are currently not recycled; and take up less than 1% of our inventory.
