Romania Transylvanian Gold
In this photo taken Sunday, Aug. 14, 2011, a general view of the landscape near the Transylvanian mining city of Rosia Montana, Romania. With the precious metal at an all-time high, a Canadian company is eager to start blasting out mountains and demolishing parts of this ancient town to build an open-cast mine where 300 tons of gold and 1,600 tons of silver are buried. The plan, which would use cyanide in the extraction process, faces fierce opposition from ecologists and many locals who want to preserve the region's unique heritage. (AP Photo/Nicolae Dumitrache)
