NIGER: Temporary Closure of Gold Mines Following Deaths of Around Fifty Animals

In Niger, the decision to temporarily close several gold mining sites in the northern part of the country was made on May 3, 2024, after more than fifty ruminant animals died suddenly. Suspected poisoning linked to gold mining activities is believed to be the cause, with local farmers attributing the contamination to water discharged by the Chinese gold mining company Sahara SARL.
