Chinese Mining Operation in Mozambique Contributes to Serious Flood

Amnesty International published in 2018 a major report titled "'Our Lives Mean Nothing': The Human Cost of Chinese Mining in Nagonha, Mozambique."

The study concludes that the mining operations since 2011 of the Chinese company, Haiyu, significantly increased the risk of flooding in the region, including a flash flood in 2015 that left about 290 people homeless. Haiyu has been mining mineral sands to extract ilmenite, titanium, and zircon.
