Gold

REDUCE RE-USE RECYCLE

Gold can be reduced, re-used and recycled.

It is very important that you let go of unwanted, broken or damaged gold as this will reduce demand for the mining of gold. Gold mining devastates the environment and it is believed that we have already mined enough gold to meet all our demands.

Take your unwanted, broken or damaged gold to Cheque Centre. There is a Cheque Centre at;

The Cheque Centre, 74 George Street, Hove, BN3 3YE - 01273 724935

The Cheque Centre, 39 Queens Road, Brighton, BN1 3XB - 01273 711451

Please take part in our Gold Mine Photo Petition in support of the Colombia Solidarity Campaign who is fighting against AngloGold Ashanti who plan to open an open cast gold mine in La Colosa in Colombia.

AngloGold Ashanti (AGA), who posted record profits of $457m on 9th November 2011, is one of the most important companies that undertake open cast gold mining using cyanide, one of the most polluting and dangerous industrial activities in the world.
