ASGM Sites: Matundasi and Makongolosi Mining Areas in Tanzania

This report focuses on artisanal small-scale gold mining (ASGM) hotspots of the Matundasi and Makongolosi mining areas in Tanzania.

We examined levels of mercury in the hair of the population living and working at ASGM sites to confirm whether the use of mercury in the processing of gold can be traced in human hair from these locations.
