Global ASGM Statistics
The largest source of mercury emissions of anthropogenic activity ever made on earth is artisanal and small-scale gold mining known as ASGM where mercury is used in the traditional method of amalgamation to extract gold from the ore rock. ASGM activities are also sources of social problems, such as land tenure issues, social instability such as migration, and conflict between residents.
Although current crisis of global mercury pollution problems are still going on, many of them can be solved by working with various societal partners such as governments, companies, and citizen groups.
Co-designing the future for well-being and contributing to the solution of sustainability problems become important and necessary for the current and our future generations.
