Australian mining firm hopes for better deal from new Thai industry minister

Recommended Posts

corporate profit got no shame !!!!

 

Gold mining companies make huge profits, extracting gold, copper and other minerals

 

of course they cost a hell of disaster by scratching and eroding soil or worst making huge earth holes that can never be recovered, worst the mercury and arsenic bath where the wash the minerals are very polluting even if filtered, there is no a single gold mining in the globe who did not have "involuntary' discharge in river and soil, polluting heavily the environment and the people living near by.

it was excellent choice to shut it down and wish the Thai Gov will fine them so much that all the "corporate" profits will go back to try to repair the area and pay compensations to villagers !

Your brain is green washed....Environmental factors played no part what so ever in the real reason for the shut down I will lay money on that.....

Oh wow- that is the epitome of a unintelligent fulmination from an uneducated moralist

Time to get tough with foreign miners. Letting them pillage the country's natural resources as well as pollute the place and drive residents away from their homes, residents who are lucky if they have not been poisoned or killed by the mine's tailings....

If I were czar of all czars, there would be no foreign miners in Thailand. Thai land for the Thais.

IDIOT !

When has a Government ever acted for the people ?

The only hope the Thai Villagers have is if the Mine company actually are allowed to complete project and fulfil  obligations.

 

Not all mining companies are unscrupulous and it certainly does not mean that the government would do a better gold of repatriation at the cessation of the mine.

 

why would the government even bother, none of the elected overlords live anywhere this place.

When you dig an opencast gold mine, you end up with a lot of waste rock and tailings, you have to put them somewhere. Inevitably you will get some leakage from the tailings dam at best, at worst ....... one word ...... Brazil. And the hole usually has to be pumped continuously to keep it dry, that water has to end up somewhere and will almost certainly be polluted.

Finally gold ore contains very low amounts of gold, you do not shift it off site for processing, usually at least concentrated on site if not actually fully processed. This will also result in toxic wastes which have to go somewhere. 

 

End result, a lot of toxic solid and liquid wastes. Very hard to prevent SOME pollution spreading off site. Just a question of how much, and for how long (often for many years after mining ends).
