|In January, a new seminar about toxic mining in Salamanca|
Stop Uranium, as Save Cabana, is a citizen platform registered as non-profit association born with the aim of paralyzing the so-called 'Salamanca Project', that the Australian mining company Berkeley Resources try to open between the spanish provinces of Salamanca and Caceres.
PROJECTION AND ROUNDTABLE
Following the presentation will screen the documentary: "The fool's gold: Memory of gold mining in Costa Rica" ("El oro de los tontos: Memoria de la minería del oro en Costa Rica"), produced by the National University of this mesoamerican country. This production narrates an experience very similar to Corcoesto, which ended with a cancellation ot mining project 'Las Crucitas' by order of the national courts.
At the end of the seminar, a panel discussion on the similarities between mining projects of Edgewater Exploration in Corcoesto and Berkeley Resources in Salamanca, will involve both associations to collaborate in the analysis of context and alternatives.
OPEN PIT MINING, AN UNSUSTAINABLE ACTIVITY
The open pit mining with toxic substances is an activity of high environmental, social and cultural impact, which is currently the industry that generates more waste worldwide. By definition unsustainable, because exploitation involves depletion.
