Potosi, Bolivia
Bolivian independent miners leave the "Cerro Rico" mountain in a truck in Potosi, about 420 km (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 thousands extracting silver to enrich their Spanish masters.
