    A Canadian owned mining company says it plan to open four new gold mines in the Romanian village of Rosia Montana that will boost the economy of the east-European country.

    However, Rosia Montana Gold Corporation's project has been met by opposition from the residents of the village who expressed concerns about the environmental and cultural costs.

    Al Jazeera's Simon McGregor-Wood reports from Rosia Montana in western Romania.
