On the 1-2nd of April WGI collected soil and water samples from gold mining and processing points in Mubende district. This is part of its project on "Promoting Mining Industry Compliance to Social and Environmental Safeguards in Uganda" a project funded by the Foundation Open Society Institute (FOSI) through its regional organisation Open Society Institute for East Africa (OSIEA). The samples will be tested in the laboratory for presence of Mercury, Cyanide, Arsenic and lead as indicators of pollution. Results will ascertain whether these hazardous chemicals are finding their way into the environment and probably into humans and the food-chain
