    With its large gold deposits, the people of Paracale town in the Philippines' Camarines Norte province have relied on mining as a source of living for centuries. Although banned, the town's small-scale gold mining industry employs different generations of workers, from grown-up men to minors. CCTV's Barnaby Lo spent time with Paracale's miners, some as young as 15, and their families. The government has pledged to stop child labor in the province, even giving families alternative sources of livelihood such as fishing. But for the town's residents, a bucket full of fish is nothing compared to an an ounce of gold.

Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

Cherry Creek Mining Town - Nevada - United States.American Ghost Towns. Cherry Creek is a historic mining town located in northern White Pine County, in northeastern Nevada in the western United States. It is a census county division (CCD), with a population at the 2010 census of 72. The community of Cherry Creek is located in the northern part of the long Steptoe Valley, north of the modern communities of McGill and Ely. Immediately to the west is the Cherry Creek Range, while to the east is U.S. Route 93 and the Schell Creek Range. Just to the south, in Egan Canyon, the Pony Express and subsequent stage lines made their way through the mountains of central Nevada in the 1860s. Cherry Creek has existed as a community for over 140 years. In the early 1860s, the area around Cherry Creek was discovered to have substantial mineral deposits of gold and silver. The community was founded on September 21, 1872 when two prospectors from nearby Egan Canyon located the "Tea Cup" claims, rich deposits of silver and gold ore. By spring of 1873, the community had an estimated population of 400. In 1873, Cherry Creek included a livery stable, a blacksmith shop, a large hotel, several boarding houses, restaurants, and more than twenty saloons. Cherry Creek continued to grow in 1873. Wells Fargo opened a station in Cherry Creek, and the Cherry Creek post office also opened for business in 1873. However, in early 1874, most of the original mineral claims in the area began to play out. As a result, Cherry Creek's economy and population began a decline, and by 1875, although limited production continued, most of the local mills and mines had closed. For 1875–1880, Cherry Creek remained a small mining community, sustaining a much smaller population and workforce than it had during the prosperous years of 1872–1874. Cherry Creek's economy and population rapidly expanded once more in 1880, when additional deposits of gold and silver were discovered. Over the next two years, Cherry Creek experienced its biggest boom. By the end of 1881, a single one of the larger mines locally employed over 200 men. Cherry Creek became the largest voting precinct in White Pine County. By 1882, the community was at its peak, with both its economy and population exceeding their previous highs during the boom of 1873–1874. During 1882, the community was estimated to have a population of 7,800, of which 6,000 were estimated to be transient mine workers. During this time, 28 saloons were located in Cherry Creek. There were also a substantial variety of stores and local businesses, most catering to local mine workers. A stagecoach route to Toano, in Elko County, was created and in service during this time. By the end of 1882, one local mine had produced more than one million dollars in gold bullion, a huge amount for the time. The boom of 1880–1883 was the most economically prosperous period in Cherry Creek's history. In 1883, a financial crash devastated the local economy. Many mines closed, and the community entered a rapid decline. In 1888, a fire destroyed a substantial portion of the town's business district. By the census of 1890, the population had fallen to 350. Cherry Creek experienced large, damaging fires in 1901 and 1904. Many of the original buildings in the community were burnt down and had to be rebuilt. In 1905, Cherry Creek's economy experienced a modest revival when a number of local mines reopened. Cherry Creek remained the home of several hundred people, and the base of substantial mining activity, until the late 1940s. Since the 1940s, the community has slowly declined in size, although mine leaseholders have always been active in the district, and occasional mining activity has taken place. Total production for the district since 1872 has been estimated at roughly 20 million dollars. Throughout the 2000s, the "Barrel Saloon" a local business, remained open, however, it closed in July 2010. Many historic structures, including a museum, an early one-room schoolhouse, and the Cherry Creek Barrel Saloon, still stand among more modern buildings. American Ghost Towns.

This video is about Three Gold Mining Secrets on Apache Trail, Goldfield Ghost Town AZ, The Mystery House The drive from Apache Junction AZ offers magnificent vistas of the Superstition Mountains, Salt River Canyon and Canyon Lake. The waters of scenic Canyon Lake wash against a gentle swimming beach at Acacia. Acacia is adjacent to Palo Verde Boating Site. Unique Sonoran Desert vegetation surround Acacia. The waters of this scenic lake wash against multi-hued cliffs. Acacia is an escape from the heat of the Valley. Nearby is Goldfield Ghost Town, formed in 1893, as gateway to the legendary Superstition Mountains. Shops and historic buildings are near the entrance of Mammoth Gold Mine and Goldfield Museum. Panning for gold going on Arizona’s only narrow gauge train are available for visitors who can witness an old west gun fight performed by famous Goldfield Gunfighters. Back in the 1890′s Goldfield boasted three saloons, a boarding house, general store, blacksmith shop, brewery, meat market and a school house. Just when it looked like the town would outgrow Mesa, the vein faulted, the grade of ore dropped and the town died a slow painful death. Geology experts say time created the shallow caves sheltering their cliff dwellings and the productive river basin for their farming needs. Tonto Basin is a deep sedimentary basin filled with debris eroded and carried from the adjacent mountain ranges. Layers were formed as the land was repeatedly covered with water. Debris washed from the mountains was layered among the sediments. Mud cracks formed when sediments dried out during low tide, creating patterns on rocks. Some rocks display ripples of cross bedding, also formed in shallow water. Mountains of today were formed through cycles of layer deposits, block uplifts and erosion. As the final uplift began, the Salt River began downcutting, carrying debris to the surrounding lowlands. The coarsest materials were dropped close to the mountains, while finer sediments were carried out into the center of the basin. Rick Allen wrote a book in 2009, The Disoriented Dutchman's Gold Mine. Parker: Outskirts Press, Paperback, 225 pages. "Joe Waltz is the great-grandson of the famous Lost Dutchman, Jacob Waltz. The location of the gold mine was lost with the death of Joe's grandmother, or so he thought. His parents have been loose-lipped about their heritage, a mistake that forces them into hiding, and now places their lives in jeopardy because of an eavesdropping con man, bent on obtaining the treasure at any cost. Joe's ex-girlfriend, now privy to his true identity, also joins in the search, and has enlisted the help of her bumbling brother and friend in her plot. With clues left by his late grandmother Now surfacing, Joe's life and the famous Lost Dutchman's gold are in growing peril.” $12.95. Natural processes formed the caves, probably starting between 50,000 and 400,000 years ago. Rock alcoves that house the cliff dwellings are located in a layer consisting primarily of siltstone.

A South African and a Namibian took mercy on me on a Saturday and decided to show me the sights.

These are people who live on the fringes: they work harder than most, every day, and remain in abject poverty due to igorance, corruption, disease. AIDS is rife in the area, I'm told, although the gold mining company I'm contracted to does a lot to educate and otherwise equip people about malaria and HIV/AIDS.
