Neuropathological lesions in the brains of goats in North-Western Nigeria: possible impact of artisanal mining
TLDR
A generalised increase of the metal concentrations in the brain of goats exposed to artisanal mining in Zamfara, north-western Nigeria is shown, which could have health effects on the animals associated with nervous co-ordination, growth and development and as a good sentinel for pathogenesis of the heavy metal exposure.

Outbreak of Fatal Childhood Lead Poisoning Related to Artisanal Gold Mining in Northwestern Nigeria, 2010
TLDR
The high levels of environmental contamination, percentage of children < 5 years of age with elevated BLLs, and incidence of convulsions among children before death suggest that most of the recent childhood deaths in the two surveyed villages were caused by acute lead poisoning from gold ore–processing activities.

Linking Geological and Health Sciences to Assess Childhood Lead Poisoning from Artisanal Gold Mining in Nigeria
TLDR
Results indicate that older children, adult workers, pregnant women, and breastfed infants are also at risk for lead poisoning, and ore deposit geology, pre-mining weathering, and burgeoning artisanal mining may combine to cause similar lead poisoning disasters elsewhere globally. Expand
