No large-scale gold mining

Please do not allow large-scale gold mining. Due to weak regulations and the inherent dangers of mining, mining has a history of contaminating water mercury, water on which humans, animals, and plants depend. Modern mining methods use cyanide, another toxin. We cannot drink gold.
