Abstract: Amid a mining boom throughout Latin America, from Central America to the southern Patagonia, with at least 120 environmental conflicts related to extractive activities, Argentina is also witnessing confrontation between social sectors and the national and provincial governments, pro-mining groups, and beneficiaries of mining's vital financial bonanza. Residents of several small towns in northeastern Argentina are protesting against openpit mining ventures, which use large quantities of explosives to blast the rock where the minerals are hidden, cyanide in the leaching process, and huge amounts of water.
