Hundreds of Colombian women miners digg the goldbearing mud to find gold and platine in the open mines close to Tadó, Chocó dept., Colombia, 26 May 2004. Chocó is a no man's land. The large inaccessible rainforest jungle area in the western lowlands of Colombia is mainly inhabited by Afro Colombian population, descendents of African slaves. High presence of malaria, guerilla drug traffic routes, tropical deseases and only an irregular river transport makes this region virtually lost. Gold that is found in the jungle rivers of Chocó is the only hope for many although they never find what they dream about.
