    Child labor, environmental pollution, human rights abuses and bloody conflicts: this is the global gold trade. What lawmakers are doing to protect children? Gold as a raw material is more in demand than ever. But few people bother to think about conditions in the gold mining industry. We visit Ghana, the Philippines and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where conditions are often life-threatening. Conditions in small-scale mining operations are especially bad. Children as young as 7 are put to work underground and underwater, and are exposed to high doses of mercury. Bloody conflicts are fought in pursuit of minerals such as gold and coltan.

  • Xi Jinping Secures Deals in the Congo

    Xi Jinping winds down his first official trip to Africa as China's new leader with a final stop in the Democratic Republic of Congo. On Friday, Xi signed a series of 11 deals totaling several million dollars. The negotiations covered sectors such as finance, infrastructure, energy and communications. The Congo is a major oil producer and China is already the Congo's largest trading partner. According to state-run Xinhua news, trade between China and the Congo has swelled from $290 million in 2002, to $5 billion in 2012. The latest deals add to several other multibillion-dollar agreements already under way. The most high profile of these will be the construction of a 300 mile long highway between the capital of Brazzaville and the Congo's second largest city, Pointe-Noire. (Thumbnail ...

    French/Nat The once thriving Congolese capital Brazzaville has been transformed into a virtual ghost town following four months of fighting in the country's bitter civil war. Almost all the residents of the city have fled and those that remain are too frightened to venture out. The streets are deserted, but for marauding bands of soldiers. APTV has this special report. The Congolese capital of Brazzaville has been ravaged over the last four months by a bitter civil war. Nearly all the town's civilian population has fled to the countryside or across the river to Kinshasa, in neighbouring Congo. Aid workers say only about 10 percent of the city's 800-thousand residents remain. The streets are now the domain of militia members from both sides. But the capital is hel...

  • IMF missteps over huge China deal in the Congo proves costly

    In 2007 when China's Exim Bank unveiled a massive $6 billion mining deal in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it completely rocked the normally-staid world of international development finance. The agreement, known as "The China Deal" or Sicomines, was among the first of these huge Chinese infrastructure-for-resources deals that are now commonplace across Africa.   Ten years ago, though, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund were pretty much the only players that threw around that kind of cash in countries like the DRC. So when the Chinese came along with the Sicomines deal, many observers saw it as a direct challenge to the IMF's once unrivaled dominance of international development finance in places like the Congo.   While a feared Chinese-IMF rivalry did not u...

Child labor, environmental pollution, human rights abuses and bloody conflicts: this is the global gold trade. What lawmakers are doing to protect children? Gold as a raw material is more in demand than ever. But few people bother to think about conditions in the gold mining industry. We visit Ghana, the Philippines and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where conditions are often life-threatening. Conditions in small-scale mining operations are especially bad. Children as young as 7 are put to work underground and underwater, and are exposed to high doses of mercury. Bloody conflicts are fought in pursuit of minerals such as gold and coltan. Rebel groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, for example, use the illegal gold trade to finance their war. In June 2016, the EU agreed on a regulation to stop the financing of armed groups through trade in conflict minerals: It requires companies to provide complete supply-chain transparency. Gold, coltan, tin and tungsten may no longer be imported to Europe from places where child labor, environmental damage and human rights abuses occur. "We need to break the vicious cycle between the trade in minerals and the financing of conflict," say EU representatives. But in eastern DRC, that goal remains a distant one. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Almost all the residents of the city have fled and those that remain are too frightened to venture out. The streets are deserted, but for marauding bands of soldiers. APTV has this special report. The Congolese capital of Brazzaville has been ravaged over the last four months by a bitter civil war. Nearly all the town's civilian population has fled to the countryside or across the river to Kinshasa, in neighbouring Congo. Aid workers say only about 10 percent of the city's 800-thousand residents remain. The streets are now the domain of militia members from both sides. But the capital is held by rebel soldiers loyal to ex-president Sassou Nguesso. His rebel troops are known as the Cobras. For them, this is a war with few trained soldiers, little discipline and scarcely any vehicles. In Cobra-held territory electricity and telephones are nearly non-existant and fuel is in short supply. But the Cobras say they will continue fighting to protect what is important to them despite their poor equipment. SOUNDBITE:(French) "We are not fighting because we like it or for personal reasons of finance or anything else. The reason we are fighting is the protection of our families". SUPER CAPTION: Cobra Fighter The badly armed fighters have managed to hold at bay the better supplied troops of President Pascal Lissouba and have captured three quarters of the country, as well as holding their positions in the capital. Gunfire echoes regularly around the wreckage of the town, and the few people living there, the Cobras included, live in fear of Lissouba's helicopters, which have recently begun dropping heavy bombs. Outside the compound of former president Sassou Nguesso is a reminder of the origins of the war. This armoured personnel carrier was sent by President Lissouba to kill Sassou Nguesso in a move which sparked the conflict. The former president left Brazzaville when the fighting got too close for comfort. But his troops remain, patrolling the streets and manning checkpoints, their bravery fuelled by beer and their AK-47s, the only commodities they seem to have enough of.

Marketing has significantly affected the image of diamond as a valuable commodity. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0802713688/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0802713688&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=51518532ca9e4d54418334353e4d986f N. W. Ayer & Son, the advertising firm retained by De Beers in the mid-20th century, succeeded in reviving the American diamond market. And the firm created new markets in countries where no diamond tradition had existed before. N. W. Ayer's marketing included product placement, advertising focused on the diamond product itself rather than the De Beers brand, and associations with celebrities and royalty. Without advertising the De Beers brand, De Beers was advertising its competitors' diamond products as well.[74] De Beers' market share dipped temporarily to 2nd place in the global market below Alrosa in the aftermath of the global economic crisis of 2008, down to less than 29% in terms of carats mined, rather than sold.[75] The campaign lasted for decades but was effectively discontinued by early 2011. De Beers still advertises diamonds, but the advertising now mostly promotes its own brands, or licensed product lines, rather than completely "generic" diamond products.[75] The campaign was perhaps best captured by the slogan "a diamond is forever".[7] This slogan is now being used by De Beers Diamond Jewelers,[76] a jewelry firm which is a 50%/50% joint venture between the De Beers mining company and LVMH, the luxury goods conglomerate. Brown-colored diamonds constituted a significant part of the diamond production, and were predominantly used for industrial purposes. They were seen as worthless for jewelry (not even being assessed on the diamond color scale). After the development of Argyle diamond mine in Australia in 1986, and marketing, brown diamonds have become acceptable gems.[77][78] The change was mostly due to the numbers: the Argyle mine, with its 35,000,000 carats (7,000 kg) of diamonds per year, makes about one-third of global production of natural diamonds; 80% of Argyle diamonds are brown. Historically, diamonds were found only in alluvial deposits in Guntur and Krishna district of the Krishna River delta in Southern India.[89] India led the world in diamond production from the time of their discovery in approximately the 9th century BC[4][90] to the mid-18th century AD, but the commercial potential of these sources had been exhausted by the late 18th century and at that time India was eclipsed by Brazil where the first non-Indian diamonds were found in 1725.[4] Currently, one of the most prominent Indian mines is located at Panna.[91] Diamond extraction from primary deposits (kimberlites and lamproites) started in the 1870s after the discovery of the Diamond Fields in South Africa.[92] Production has increased over time and now an accumulated total of 4,500,000,000 carats (900,000 kg) have been mined since that date.[93] Twenty percent of that amount has been mined in the last five years, and during the last 10 years, nine new mines have started production; four more are waiting to be opened soon. Most of these mines are located in Canada, Zimbabwe, Angola, and one in Russia.[93] In the U.S., diamonds have been found in Arkansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana.[94][95] In 2004, the discovery of a microscopic diamond in the U.S. led to the January 2008 bulk-sampling of kimberlite pipes in a remote part of Montana.[95] Today, most commercially viable diamond deposits are in Russia (mostly in Sakha Republic, for example Mir pipe and Udachnaya pipe), Botswana, Australia (Northern and Western Australia) and the Democratic Republic of Congo.[96] In 2005, Russia produced almost one-fifth of the global diamond output, reports the British Geological Survey. Australia boasts the richest diamantiferous pipe, with production from the Argyle diamond mine reaching peak levels of 42 metric tons per year in the 1990s.[94][97] There are also commercial deposits being actively mined in the Northwest Territories of Canada and Brazil.[82] Diamond prospectors continue to search the globe for diamond-bearing kimberlite and lamproite pipes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond

IMF missteps over huge China deal in the Congo proves costly

IMF missteps over huge China deal in the Congo proves costly

In 2007 when China's Exim Bank unveiled a massive $6 billion mining deal in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it completely rocked the normally-staid world of international development finance. The agreement, known as "The China Deal" or Sicomines, was among the first of these huge Chinese infrastructure-for-resources deals that are now commonplace across Africa.   Ten years ago, though, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund were pretty much the only players that threw around that kind of cash in countries like the DRC. So when the Chinese came along with the Sicomines deal, many observers saw it as a direct challenge to the IMF's once unrivaled dominance of international development finance in places like the Congo.   While a feared Chinese-IMF rivalry did not ultimately materialize, "The China Deal" did create a lot of problems. The IMF responded defensively, according to new research from Sino-Congolese scholar Dr. Johanna Malm at Roskilde University in Denmark. Fearing they might be pushed aside by the Chinese, the IMF opted to make it easier for the Congolese government to borrow yet more money, adding to Kinshasa's already dangerously-high debt load.   Dr. Malm joins Eric & Cobus to discuss "The China Deal" and why the IMF's missteps in the Congo produced costly-consequences for an already financially-distressed government.

Warlords, soldiers, and child laborers all toil over a mineral you've never even heard of. Coltan is a conflict mineral in nearly every cell phone, laptop, and electronic device. It's also tied to the deaths of over 5 million people in Congo since 1990.
