Is it possible to contract asthma if you work in a gold mine?

Yes, just like coal miners (coal miners have a high rate of lung

related diseases.) Not everyone that works in a gold mine will get

asthma. It can be the dust or something in the dirt or dust. If you

find it hard to breath, are coughing and short of breath then you

are going to have to use proper filtering systems on your face and

if you can't do that then all the gold in the world isn't worth

what you will suffer.
