Caption

Gold mining camp. Aerial photograph of houses inhabited by gold washers, on the shores of a dammed water reservoir. The mine where they work uses mercury to amalgamate the gold. The mercury is polluting the surrounding areas, including this reservoir and nearby rivers. Photographed in Petit-Saut, French Guiana, in April 2005.
