MYANMAR-MINING-COPPER

This picture taken on August 31, 2013 shows a worker carrying baskets next to pools in a mining waste dump area in Monywa, northwestern Myanmar. Villagers whose lands were grabbed under the former junta in the copper-rich region use discarded soil from nearby mines, mixed with old aluminum cans, water and acid, to retrieve copper from the waste. Working illegally and with no safety equipment, the villagers expose themselves to health hazards to eke out a meager living.
