E-book about mining in Colombia now available
Steve Cagan and Mary Kelsey have just published an e-book entitled, The Price of Gold, describing their work to document via photos and drawings the impact of gold mining on the people and environment of the Choco, a lowland rainforest region along the northwestern Pacific coast of Colombia. The book provides unusual insights into the cultural, economic and political forces that have resulted in both small scale, artesanal mining and larger scale mining that involves extensive river dredging. More details about the book and how to obtain it can be found in the official book announcement posted below.
