Gold panning in LTTC-Mandra forest concession

Small scale miners operate within a forest concession in Liberia. They work in an uneasy relationship with the forest concession owners who view their activities as detrimental to the trees. Although they do no use chemicals, the miners acknowledge that their activities are bad for the rivers and trees. They use a separate creek for drinking water.Photo by Flore de Preneuf/ PROFOR
