Local miner Ruben Castilo uses a water jet to hose down the earth as he hunts for gold near at the village of Las Cristinas, in southern Bolivar State, January 30, 2009. Four centuries after the lure of Venezuelan gold brought ruin to English explorer Sir Walter Raleigh, the riches at one giant mine some say is cursed still haunt treasure hunters from across the globe. But the Las Cristinas saga, involving a ghost town, environmental devastation and fist-sized nuggets, underlines the risks of business in Venezuela, where the draw of natural wealth has been dulled by rule changes and economic turmoil.

Four centuries after the lure of Venezuelan gold brought ruin to English explorer Sir Walter Raleigh, the riches at one giant mine some say is cursed still haunt treasure hunters from across the globe.Located south of the Orinoco river and near a town bearing the name of the mythical golden city of El Dorado, the Las Cristinas deposit captivates miners and prospectors even though no ore has been legally dug there in two decades.Studies show it may be Latin America's top gold deposit.

TO MATCH FEATURE STORY BAHAMAS ISLAND.
It has served as a staging post for rum runners and cocaine cowboys. One U.S. presidential bid was scuppered on the dockside and a movie cannibal found refuge here. Writer Ernest Hemingway boozed and brawled here between bouts of hunting the marlin that swim in the waters of the Gulf Stream. It is a paradise for sports fishermen and scubadivers. Welcome to the Bimini Islands, a slither of land, mangrove swamps and tiny keys in the Bahamas just 50 miles east of Miami. It is reckoned to have more bars than shops and every one is a treasure trove of yarns. Picture taken in June 2001 shows the inside of the "End of the World" bar.
