Book description
The film looks at the effects of the Waihi gold mine on the environment and Waihi township. It shows the effects of mining in the 19th Century including the poisoning of streams with heavy metal leachates exuding from the mines. This leachate continues to flow into coastal waters contributing to abnormally high levels of mercury in Hauraki Gulf snapper. The mining companies took their gold and left but a toxic legacy remains for generations to come.
