Artisanal miners produce more gold than you would think!

Artisanal miners produce more gold
This is a photo of artisanal miner in Mexico that I encountered earlier this year. I was amazed at how hard this fellow worked everyday.

First he would prospect in various areas, then he would shovel the material into the back of his truck. He had a little water resource and would run the gravel through a little sluice box. At the end of a hard day he would often have a gram of gold or more.

 It is amazing to see this all over the world that people are still providing for their families mining gold.
