Screening of ‘Water for Gold’ (NZ) “A gold mine in the Yuba Watershed threatens to reopen on San Juan Ridge in California USA, despite a disastrous chain of events when the mine operated in the 1990s, and a proposed dewatering rate of millions of gallons per day. This is the story of what a community can do when they decide enough is enough, and that they will not trade their water for gold.”
