  • Gold panning should be banned

    It causes land degradation and it also leads to land, Air and water pollution. It is not a safe method of mining. It can be illegal therefore encouraging criminal activities. They face more risks because they are not assisted by the government which leads to high death of people. It causes desertification and loss of biodiversity through defforestation

  • Gold panning is pretty mild

    Its just a person with a pan in a river looking for small gold nuggets. The water settles and it is not the most destructive method. Have you seen the actual gold extraction methods companies use. Those are the ones that destroy land and waste water. I would prefer gold panning than the destructive methods they use.
    And then it goes both ways.
    Maybe you are a girl who likes to wear gold jewelry. You probably got that gold from a rain forest.
    And that phone or computer you own it uses gold. So while you want to stop gold harvesting you yourself use it and depend on it.

  • Uh isn't gold panning just using a sieve

    Like how the hell does filtering silt cause land degradation and water pollution
    what does any of this mean:
    'It is not a safe method of mining. It can be illegal therefore encouraging criminal activities. They face more risks because they are not assisted by the government which leads to high death of people. It causes desertification'
    like try and define panning first
