Rosia Montana: a deadly shade of Gold

The story of Rosia Montana, a commune of sixteen villages in the middle of Transylvania, which sits on top of Europe’s largest gold deposits, dates back to Roman times when emperor Trojan realized that gold can sustain an empire and Rosia Montana had plenty of it. But what the Romans couldn’t finish, a benevolent Canadian company: Gabriel Resources, will try to. Unlike the Romans, to prove that humanity has evolved a lot in the last 2000 years they have decided to go about mining in a sensible way (as you do in the 21st century) by flattening 4 mountains, cutting down hundreds of hectares of forests and also enriching the water supplies with deadly cyanide.
