A prospector sorts gold particles found at the Marco gold mine in Mukungwe locality in Walungu territory of South Kivu May 10, 2014. Decades of corruption, mismanagement and violence have blighted the development of Congo, which at the time of independence in 1960 was Africa's second most industrialised economy. In 2013 it was near the foot of global tables for per capita economic output. Now industrial mining operations are moving back to regions that have been the preserve of artisanal miners since the collapse of Congo's state-run mining operations in the 1990s, at the end of dictator Mobutu Sese Seko's 31-year rule.

A mine worker looks at stacks of coal in an open-cast steam coal mine located in the Ordos mining district, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, March 14, 2014. China's top producing coal province of Inner Mongolia, where Ordos is located, is in crisis. Tumbling prices, caused by weaker demand due to slowing growth in China and a flood of cheaper imports, have forced many smaller miners out of business, while some major firms are slashing wages by up to 50 percent to stem heavy losses.

An aerial view of a wildcat gold mine on a deforested plot of Amazon rainforest near the city of Castelo dos Sonhos, Para state, June 27, 2013. The Amazon rainforest is being eaten away at by deforestation, much of which takes place as areas are burnt by large fires to clear land for agriculture. Initial data from Brazil's space agency suggests that destruction of the vast rainforest - the largest in the world - spiked by more than a third over the past year, wiping out an area more than twice the size of the city of Los Angeles. If the figures are borne out by follow-up data, they would confirm fears of scientists and environmental activists who warn that farming, mining and Amazon infrastructure projects, coupled with changes to Brazil's long-standing environmental policies, are reversing progress made against deforestation. Environmental issues will be under the spotlight as a United Nations Climate Change Conference opens in Warsaw, Poland on November 11. Picture taken on June 27, 2013.

In South Sudan ordinary people have been extracting gold from artisanal mines and taking part in as-yet unregulated trade in the precious metal. But now the government hopes to pass mining legislation that will formalise the industry, let them tax precious metal and mineral exports and sell concessions to large-scale investors. Officials say firms from China, Australia, the United States, South Africa and other African countries plan to apply for licences when new mining laws are passed in November. After many delays, parliament is set to begin debate on the bill on Monday. Picture taken October 24, 2012.

A miner waves a pan to look for gold in the Cauca river in Santa Fe de Antioquia August 8, 2012. For centuries, Colombian miners have extracted and processed gold from the Cauca River without using chemicals allowing the precious metal to keep its pureness. Picture taken August 8, 2012.

Boys pan for gold on a riverside at Iga Barriere in eastern Congo
Boys pan for gold on a riverside at Iga Barriere, 25 km (15 miles) from Bunia, in the resource-rich Ituri region of eastern Congo February 16, 2009. Ituri is one of many areas of the country to have experienced bitter ethnic conflict between rival tribes in recent years. Massacres have left tens of thousands dead. It is this fighting that led U.S. authorities to take the unprecedented step of naming Congo in section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank financial regulation act, which says U.S.-listed companies that source gold, tungsten, tantalum and tin from Congo or its neighbours must assure the U.S. stock exchange regulator that their business is not helping fund conflict.

Young girl searches for gold on the waters of Foz do Cobrao June 17, 2012. Ti Manel, 85, was once among several prospectors searching for gold along the Cobrao riverside in inner north Portugal. He recalls they used to extract about one kilo of gold per year in the 50's. Ti Manel now spends his days at a local day retirement home and his legs are too weak for him to still walk down to the river. It is up to tourists now to squat by the river, holding a plate in shallow water, in search of shiny rocks. Photo taken June 17, 2012.

An artisanal miner pans for diamonds, which fuelled the 1991-2002 civil war, in the town of Koidu in eastern Sierra Leone April 22, 2012. The U.N. war crimes court trying Charles Taylor for atrocities in Sierra Leone will deliver its verdict on Thursday. Sierra Leone's 11-year conflict from 1991-2002 left over 50,000 dead and became a byword for gratuitous violence, especially the amputation of limbs. A decade later, the West African nation is peaceful, but among the world's poorest. It is due to hold elections in November. Picture taken April 22, 2012.

In the last five years, dwindling legal gold supplies and a spike in black market demand from China have made work much more lucrative for Mongolia's "ninja miners" - so named because of the large green pans carried on their backs that look like turtle shells. For thousands of dirt-poor herders, the soaring prices alone are enough to justify years of harassment, abuse and hard labour.

A woman pans for gold on a rocky bank of the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar's northern Kachin State
A woman pans for gold on a rocky bank of the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar's northern Kachin State February 24, 2012. About 100 gold prospectors work along the river at this site on the outskirts of the state capital Myitkyina earning anywhere from $3-12 a day. There are no large nuggets of gold in the rocks and sand of the Irrawaddy. Rather, the prospectors laboriously sift and filter their way down to a fine black silt in which minute flecks of gold can sometimes be found. At the end of the day they process the silt with chemicals to remove the gold. A day's work yields an amount of gold roughly the size of a grain or two of rice.

A truck loads piles of coal at a coal mining site in Berau, Indonesia's East Kalimantan province September 26, 2011. The Indonesian energy and minerals ministry has been drafting a rule that by 2014 would require miners to carry out minimum processing on minerals before exporting. Any regulation that is part of a mining and coal law introduced in 2009 requires miners to process coal and minerals into higher-value products before exporting them, as Southeast Asia 's largest economy seeks to boost revenue from the mining sector.
