Gold seeker in Burma

Gold seeker in Burma (Myanmar) in the Mon State
There is a lot of gold in Burma.The country names " Golden land ". We have
past a complete day with a band of gold seeker in the
forests of the Mon State. After one work day to dig the earth, they
have found enough gold to make wad of pure gold.
Unfortunately, the technique used here (as elsewhere) uses
of mercury to concentrate gold. The polution is extremely important
and dangeurese, especially in the north of the Myanmar.
