  • New Eldorado
  • There is a wonderful village in Romania: Roşia Montană. There are several hundred-year-old houses, and there are people who stick to their land, houses, churches and the mortal remains of their fathers. The surrounding mountains hide 300 tons of gold and silver. Roşia Montană Gold Corporation, a Canadian-Romanian company wants to open a new open-cast gold mine here. They promise state-of-the-art technology and offer locals to be moved into new, modern homes, while their houses would be destroyed. There would be gold. There would be silver. There would be a new Eldorado. But there would also be an 800-hectare cyanide containing tailing pond, with a 180-meter-high dam. Only this beautiful village, Roşia Montană and the surrounding mountains would disappear from the face of the Earth.
