Articles: “Around 200 people in Solomon Islands have set up camps in the pits at the closed Gold Ridge mine on Guadalcanal and have taken over gold production at the site. … it is not very sophisticated and you know this type of mining is often referred to as artisanal mining which by definition means that it is low technology. So people are more or less digging out ore and then panning it in the rivers or in other water sources, streams and so on. ”
