Abstract

This study aims to describe the impact of the gold mine on the economic, social, cultural and public health conditions in Poboya village of Central Sulawesi. The data were collected through interviews, observation, and documentation. The results showed that the existence of the gold mine in Poboya had an impact on the shifting of community work from farmers to gold miners which led to increased income and economic multipliers for other activities. The social impact caused was the rapid flow of migrants to Poboya but the potential for conflict was almost non-existent due to the large influence of the authorities in regulating mining activities in this region. In addition, the impact on the health sector is that 374,082 residents of Palu are at low level of risk due to increased mercury levels in the atmosphere, contamination into the food chain, and increased levels of mercury in the water.
