Comment on water extraction envisaged
According to the National Association of Non-Governmental Organizations (Asonog), Minosa exploits the open-pit mine, a practice catalogued as the most aggressive for earth according to environmental organizations. Thirteen water sources have partially disappeared from the area, and others are being contaminated with the chemicals Minosa uses to extract the gold. In the municipality of La Unión, Copan, there are 37 clinically documented cases of arsenic, lead and mercury in people's urine and blood from mining activities.
