A Toposa man shows off gold that was found in Nanakanak, South Sudan September 28, 2012. 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 September 28, 2012.
