Campaign about "green" gold


#1

I don’t use gold myself, but thought this might interest others

It seems to be about the effects of gold mining and the possibility
of using gold that’s mined in ways that leave the mining area a
healthy place to live.

On this note, what sources within the US would you all recommend for
the purchase of recycled gold?

I don’t know about that??? I am waiting for a return call from
Brian. I spoke with Matt who was teaming up with Brian and in charge
of sales at Green Karat (and the bio-verde.com site) - of both the
raw material - i.e. casting grain, wire etc and the small product
line coming out of these “eco-mining” projects. Matt has shut down
his sales due to what he feels are incompatible practices. I don’t
know the details but I do know I couldn’t buy any gold there. I was
ready to investigate switching most of my gold work to this
product. I am hoping Brian Hill might have some positive news.
