Caption: Artisanal mining. Worker with bags of gossan stones ready for processing. Iron in the stone has rusted on contact with the air, giving it a deep red colour. The presence of iron indicates the presence of other metals, including gold. The stone will be ground to extract these metals. Photographed in Macalder, Kenya.
