TO GO WITH AFP STORY China-Ghana-mining-migration, by Tom HANCOCK In a photo taken on June 10, 2013 former miner Zeng Guangqiang, who recently returned from Ghana, gestures as he explains how Chinese miners in Ghana are regularly robbed at gunpoint, as he sits in a house in his home village of Shanglin in southwestern China's Guangxi province. Thousands of men left a poor county in southern China to seek fortunes as gold miners in Africa -- but their families are terrified after deadly clashes and arrests forced many to go into hiding. Men from Shanglin began traveling to Ghana around a decade ago, after mastering mining technology in the 1990s while pioneering the exploitation of gold reserves in China's cold northeast.
