Water footprint assessment of gold refining: Case study

1. Introduction. Gold is essential for social development given its unique role in modern industrials and global economy (Chen et al., 2020).However, the process of gold refining is extremely unsustainable (Chen et al., 2019) and gold mining leads to land cover and land use change such as soil pit mining and forest removal (Asner and Tupayachi, 2017).
