The Artisanal Mining Grand Challenge seeks innovations that can transform artisanal and small scaling mining (ASM) – how can your innovations make ASM an environmentally and socially responsible sector? How might you be a part of the solution? Conservation X Labs and partners are awarding $750,000 in prizes to innovators through the Artisanal Mining Grand Challenge – $100,000 goes towards solutions that utilize or deploy AI or machine learning.

A significant amount of gold is sourced through artisanal and small scale mining. We invite you to learn about artisanal and small scale gold mining in the Amazon, and be inspired to be a part of the solution by watching the award-winning film, River of Gold.

Dive deep into the problem, get your questions answered, and be inspired to solve!

Sign up to receive your log in information for film and Q&A a few days prior to the event. You will have 24 hours to watch the film. Q&A takes place on November 7th at 12pm EST.

“River of Gold”

Narrated by Academy Award winners Sissy Spacek and Herbie Hancock

“RIVER OF GOLD,” a documentary film by the Amazon Aid Foundation, is the disturbing account of a clandestine journey into Peru’s Amazon rainforest to uncover the savage unraveling of pristine jungle by illegal small scale gold mining.

Ron Haviv and Donovan Webster, two war journalists, led by Peruvian scientist and activist Enrique Ortiz, bear witness to the apocalyptic destruction in the pursuit of illegally mined gold with consequences on a global scale. What will be the fate of this critical region of priceless biodiversity as these extraordinarily beautiful forests are turned into a hellish wasteland?

Education Curriculum

In tandem with the “River of Gold” documentary film, Amazon Aid has produced a curriculum with our partner Journeys in Film that will amplify the film’s impact and educate students worldwide about the importance of the Amazon and promote working solutions for saving it.

Resource Guide

For the first time, resources about the what why and where of the gold supply chain are being consolidated into one place providing easy access to information from the ground to the consumer of how to engage in working solutions to promote a cleanly and responsibly sourced gold.

Social Impact Campaign

The worldwide release of “River of Gold” along with its other initiatives will raise the bar by activating governments, NGOs, stakeholders, scientists, artists, ad the general public to take specific actions to address the looming global crisis of losing the Amazon. It is not hyperbole to state that the Amazon is at a tipping point. We must act now in order to save the most critical ecosystem on the planet. JOIN US TODAY!
