According to the feasibility study conducted by Washington Group International in 2005-2006 and assumed by Roșia Montană Gold Corporation, the project will offer 634 jobs during exploitation; this number contains direct jobs, in the mine and factory; but also indirect jobs in administration, accounting, IT, supply, human resources, public relations, juridical, patrimony, etc. Even in the best case scenario, only a small fraction from those 1600 currently unemployed in Roșia Montană will get a job.
