Potosi, Bolivia
Independent Bolivian miners take a truck to the "Cerro Rico" mountain in Potosi, some 420km (260 miles) southeast of La Paz, July 31, 2007. High silver prices are drawing a frenzy of miners to a colonial-era mine at Potosi in Bolivia, but the mine has become so dangerous that authorities fear the mine, part of a World Heritage Site,could collapse. Cerro Rico (Rich Mountain) rises majestically above the town of Potosi, a symbol of a colonial past where Inca slaves died by the thousand extracting silver to enrich their Spanish masters.REUTERS\David Mercado (BOLIVIA)
