This is simply pathetic--moldy cocoa beans AND cyanide from mining? Regardless of how much the gold mones make, it can't be worth it in the toll on human life.
The mining needs to stop, and a concerted effort made to clean up the residue--and the moldy cocoa beans need to be replaced with fresh, wholesome beans.
Noted, signed and shared, of course.
Thank you, Florence.

When are these greedy fools going to learn
you can't eat gold and if they poison the
planet to get it, they won't be able to buy any
food either.
