Canadian-based Baru Gold is hoping to start gold mining on the Indonesian island of Sangihe this year. The company’s concession covers the southern half of the volcanic island. Opposition to the mining activity cites threats to endemic bird populations and the residents themselves, due to inadequate tailings handling technology. The company projects reserves of nearly 115,000 ounces of gold and 2 million ounces of silver. The image was acquired December 4, 2020, covers an area of 36.3 by 42.1 km, and is located at 3.5 degrees north, 125.5 degrees east.
