The treaty also covers mercury emissions and releases from large industrial facilities ranging from coal-fired power stations and industrial boilers to certain kinds of smelters.
There's your problem.

Any of you fans of GOLD RUSH tv show on Discovery will note that no mercury or arsenic is used to extract the gold. Which is all captured via mechanical processes, by agitation getting the heavier gold to settle downward.
I am sure there is no mercury or arsenic allowed in gold mining here. It is banned but not in the 3rd world
