- Rosia Montana Gold Controversy. Rosia Montana: A Case Study in Sensitive Mining Development in Romania.
The Rosia Montana gold deposit in the Apuseni Mountains of northwest Romania has been worked since Roman times, and is currently being mined on an uneconomic basis by a state-owned mining company, Minvest. That mine is due to close by 2007, in advance of Romania's anticipated membership of the European Union (EU). Because little other employment is available in the area, closure of the mine will mean increased hardship in an already poor region. Set against this backdrop, the Rosia Montana Gold Corp (RMGC), an international joint-venture company, plans to develop a large-scale, modern mining operation on the site of the old mine. Current plans include stabilisation and clean-up of mine wastes and acid mine drainage (AMD) generated by past mining activities....
