The Curse of Inca Gold - Corruption and Poisonous Gold Production
2010 06 23

From: pbs.org



High in the Andean mountains of Peru is a gold mine, Yanacocha, run by Newmont Mining Corporation of Denver, Colorado, the largest gold mining company in the world. Once part of the Incan Empire, this land was conquered by the Spanish, who came in search of gold and silver. Descendants of the Incas remain suspicious to this day of outsiders seeking fortune here. FRONTLINE/World and New York Times reporter Lowell Bergman arrives to investigate a growing conflict between the local people and the Yanacocha Mine, which has already produced $7 billion worth of gold.

The documentary exposes the corrupt Peruvian government, Vladimiro Montesinos and his ties to the CIA. It also shows how Newmont Mining Corporation is using cyanide, mercury and other poisonous and lethal chemicals to extract the gold, this is known as Heap leaching.
