Romania -Layoffs at controversial Rosia Montana gold mine -April 03, 2015

The Rosia Montana Gold Corporation cites unreasonable delays in the authorisation process as the reason for the redundancies.

The Rosia Montana Gold Corporation will lay off 35 of its 100 employees. The corporation, owned by the Canadian Gabriel Resources group, cites unreasonable delays in the authorisation process as the reason for the redundancies. The gold mine received extensive negative media attention in 2013 and 2014, as reported in those newsletters, for the use of cyanide in the extraction process. After the government retracted a bill that would speed up the authorisation process in September 2013, the Rosia Montana Gold Corporation already fired 392 workers in March 2014.
