Others are arguing that mining will create jobs for the local people as well as add money into the Romanian economy. The mining project is estimated to create 3000 jobs and Romania would receive 6% royalty on the gold extracted.
Lawmakers are still in the process of passing this right to mine and are torn between both viewpoints.
My question to you all is what should the Romanian lawmakers decide? Should they risk the cyanide that will enter the environment as well as destroying four historical mountains or should they lean towards gaining more money in their economy and creating 3000 more jobs?
In my opinion, they should not mine. It does not seem worth it to Romania. Not only will they be destroying ancient mines but they will be greatly affecting the environment. It is said that they will be creating a cyanide lake along with causing tons of pollutants in the air.
