The Wider Image: Brazilians toil for gold in illegal Amazon mines
Informal mining in Brazil is seen by many as a scourge polluting the Amazon rainforest, poisoning indigenous tribes and robbing the nation of its wealth. For others it is a way of life. Brazilian garimpos, or wildcat mines, are operated by small crews of men, often caked in red-brown mud and working with rudimentary pans, shovels and sluice boxes that have been used for centuries. More sophisticated operations use water cannons and boats sucking mud from the bottoms of rivers. Regardless of the method, searching for gold and other minerals like cassiterite and niobium is dirty, dangerous and often illegal. "Looking for gold is like playing in a casino," said a 48-year-old miner. Miners asked not to be named, saying they feared the police as much of their work is illegal. Garimpos are in the spotlight as Brazil debates opening an area known as Renca in the northern Amazon forest to mining, which has met with stiff resistance from environmentalists. Mines and Energy Minister Fernando Coelho Filho argues that licensed mining will be an improvement over the estimated 1,000 people currently mining in the reserve illegally. Crepurizao lies hundreds of miles south of Renca, but gives a window into life in the garimpos caught up in the debate. Living in makeshift homes of wood and plastic, miners in the area ship some 60 kilograms of gold per month, according to traders. That much pure gold is worth millions of dollars on the global market, but high costs and layers of traders in the local market leave most miners living on the brink of poverty.

A Congolese worker separates coltan and cassiterite, or tin ore, in a mud hut at Numbi in eastern Congo July 24, 2010. New efforts to clamp down on Congo's armed groups that finance their existence with minerals sourced from the country's conflict-wracked east -- much of which ends up in laptops, cell phones and jewellery around the world -- have been criticised for trying to achieve the impossible and risking the livelihoods of a million people in the area who depend on mining.

Congolese traders in the jungle town of Mubi bag and weigh 50 kilogram sacks of raw cassiterite, the base element of tin, which is at a 15-year high on world markets due to a global shortage. The sudden price increase has fuelled deadly power struggles in the Congolese bush, where gold and diamonds are also mined by peasants in rags who dig by hand using hammers. About 10 flights transport some $50,000 worth of cassiterite daily or nearly $1 million monthly from the remote, mineral-rich forests of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Fighting continues in the vast central African state despite peace deals to end a five-year war that killed more than three million people, most from hunger and disease. Picture taken July 24, 2004.
