Global MercuryProjects Newsletter March 2004
This issue highlights the strategy for implementation of the demonstration units as well as the situation of the artisanal miners in Lao PDR. The Project Coordination Unit (PCU) and the Governmental counterparts recognize that education is the key for effective measures in reducing mercury emissions in developing countries. Hands-on training will be provided to miners and other stakeholders. The training units proposed by GMP go after miners and not vice-versa. The rampant use of mercury as a result of the high gold price must be combated at the source.
