North America is linked North to South by a mythic road: the Pan-American. However, in the middle of this road, there is a long gap of some hundred kilometres, between Panama and Colombia. This is Darien. Darien is a swamp, an impenetrable jungle of 12,000km2. And yet men and merchandise have been crossing this zone for thousands of years. Today they often do it illegally by rivers or pathways. The film’s directors followed Gina, a colourful businesswoman, who stocks her business, 3 days from Panama City in the jungle, with whatever means she can. She brings up tons of goods, first by truck then by canoe. They call her the “Queen of the Tuira River”. Indians, farmers, gold diggers, adventurers: they all meet in Darien. In the Choco region, in Colombia, having a truck or even a mule is of no use. The only means of transport is men. Only the paseros, or smugglers, can carry on their backs and barefoot, the tons of goods and of the most fragile kind from one side of the mountain to the other. Finally, the filmmakers have crossed this green hell undercover with illegals from Somalia, Sudan and Eritrea. Without bearings, the illegals put their lives into the hands of smugglers with few scruples…

According to officials, the mine was located in Rio Cana Blanca in Panama's Darien province. Four Colombians were reportedly arrested as part of the operation. Authorities believed the site was used for a variety of illegal activity that was stemming from Colombia through to Panama. "The team had intelligence and special forces located this site and brought the team to this place, which has twelve shacks, nine dredges, tools for the extraction of gold," said Frank Abrego, a commissioner at Panama's border authority Senafront. Authorities dynamited the site and burnt mining equipment used. Panama's Darien province is rich in lush jungle and shares a long, porous border with Colombia. "We believe this was a place to rest for backpackers who introduce drugs to our country and also for people crossing such as Nepalese, Africans, Cubans. It also functions as a point for any criminal group that wants to enter our country," he added. Authorities in Panama have stepped up operations in Darien Province to tackle illegal activity but the expansive area makes policing a difficult task.

For more than 50 million years, the Amazon rainforest has been a cradle of life. Its pristine forests, however, are increasingly under threat due to illegal gold mining. TechKnow's Phil Torres heads to La Pampa, the buffer zone of Tambopata National Reserve, to witness how illegal mining is turning forests into toxic wastelands. There, more than 100,000 acres of rainforest have been cleared. - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check out our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Each episode is an educational look of varying depth into the construction, operation, and staffing of various structures or construction projects, but not ordinary construction products. Generally containing interviews with designers and project managers, it presents the problems of construction and the methodology or techniques used to overcome obstacles. In some cases (such as the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge and Petronas Towers) this involved the development of new materials or products that are now in general use within the construction industry. Megastructures focuses on constructions that are extreme; in the sense that they are the biggest, tallest, longest, or deepest in the world. Alternatively, a project may appear if it had an element of novelty or are a world first (such as Dubai's Palm Islands). This type of project is known as a megaproject. The series follows similar subjects as the History Channel's Modern Marvels and Discovery Channel's Extreme Engineering, covering areas of architecture, transport, construction and manufacturing.

The Amazon rainforest is home to 10 percent of the world's known species, and its ancient trees remove millions of tons of carbondioxide per year from the atmosphere. Its pristine forests, however, are increasingly under threat. The soil underneath some of the rainforests is laced with gold, and each year, thousands of kilometres of the Amazon rainforest are devastated by illegal gold mining. In Peru, where the rainforest covers about 60 percent of the country, illegal mining operations threaten local communities and turn swathes of rainforest into barren waste sites. So what are the consequences of illegal mining for local communities and the ecosystem? What can be done to stop the destruction of the rainforest? And what happens to the dirty gold once it leaves Peru? - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years. What is the future of seabed mining? And what are the consequences of seabed mining for the marine ecosystems? Can science and industry co-exist and work together on viable and sustainable solutions? - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check out our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

As Canadian mining companies seek to expand their presence in Central America, some Panama's indigenous peoples and peasant farmers worry that the mining could lead to deforestation, polluted water supply and the displacement of local communities—including the Ngobe people, Panama's largest indigenous group. The plan to unearth billions of dollars worth of precious metals is a boon for these Panamanian communities, according to the mining companies; they bring jobs and economic development to the developing countries. But for the peasant farmers and indigenous peoples, the rewards aren't worth sacrificing the environment. "The New Conquistadors" will air on CBC on June 18, 2012. This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Panama: The Canadian Conquistadors" (http://bit.ly/Kj4Qnm).

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.

Haiti's new prime minister says the estimated $20 billion worth of minerals in Haiti's hills could help liberate it from dependency on foreign aid and rebuild from the devastating 2010 earthquake. But many worry the gold mines will be a boom for foreign investors and a bust for local Haitian communities. Democracy Now! speak to Jane Regan, lead author of "Gold Rush in Haiti: Who Will Get Rich?" The report by Haiti Grassroots Watch was published Wednesday in The Guardian and Haïti Liberté. "You've got a perfect storm brewing whereby you're looking at giant pit mines in the north, in a country that's already environmentally devastated, and giant pit mines being run by Canadian and American companies," Regan says. "Most of the money that's made and most of the gold that's dug up will go straight north." (Modified from the original excerpt provided by Democracy Now!)

The Panama Canal Railway runs parallel to the Panama Canal, connecting the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. The train ride is a popular journey among tourists. Although much older than the famous canal, the Panama Rail Road never enjoyed the same recognition. The maiden voyage across the Isthumus of Panama in 1855 was the first train to run from ocean to ocean. Its significance was lost, however, just four decades later when the U.S. opened a route connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Today a train ride along the old line is a treat for tourists. Ever since it opened for commercial operations in 1914, the Panama Canal has been greatly beneficial to the economy in Central America. Eighty-two kilometers long, it meant goods could be shipped from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific coast much faster; a single journey could be reduced by a good three weeks. From 1914 until 1979 the canal was under the control of the United States. For two decades it was then jointly controlled by the US and Panama and in 1999 full control was given to Panama. This incredible feat of engineering is the pride and joy of its citizens and generates around 40% of the national income. But before the canal, the Panama railway was the first to affectively connect the Atlantic with the Pacific. Today, 77-kilometre route between Balboa harbor in Panama City and the port of Cristóbal on the Atlantic is used to transport both freight and passengers. The panorama cars offer tourists a unique view of the canal. On the small islands off the Caribbean coast, they can also visit the Kuna, an indigenous people with a unique way of life. The Casco Viejo, the historic quarter of Panama City, is also well-worth a stopover. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Gold Dust: Under Blaise Compaore's leadership, Burkina Faso's unregulated gold rush has had a devastating effect on mining conditions. This report digs deep into the industry, exposing the corruption beneath Compaore's ruling. Millions of people - including children as young as fourteen - mine in an unregulated industry for a few golden grams of hope. Marcel toils underground to support his family - but without the glittering rewards promised. “We all have hope, we hope to earn” he says, but "they rob us here...They treat the miner like an animal." 17-year old Soumaele has been mining for two years. His thin body can go to even deeper than the older men, to places where the air is impossible to breathe and the tunnels are likely to collapse. Gold promises a great deal, but in an anarchic industry, teacher Soungalo Hema fears for the future of children like Soumaele: "You try and save them", she says, "but a lot of the time it’s in vain. I ask myself 'what will happen to all of us?'"

At this location the second largest nugget ever discovered in New Zealand was turfed up in 1917 by prospectors who were re-working old tailings from the 1860's gold-rush to Moonlight Creek. The 87.5 ounce nugget was named the 'Victory'. George Moonlight moved from the Victorian Goldfields (Australia) to New Zealand, then caught a steamer to the west coast of the South Island. George travelled from one gold rush to another, sometimes striking good gold, often not. His remains were found on the 16 September 1884 at Hope Bush (Cow Creek) having gone missing the year before on a lone prospecting trip, and is buried at the Nelson cemetery. Gold was discovered at a site, about 40 kilometres north-east of Greymouth, by prospectors called Cabet (surname) and 'Panama Bill', in 1868. They decided to name the new goldfield after George Moonlight. The creek and neighbouring terraces contained coarse dark nuggetty gold, sometimes impregnated with rose quartz (or rose tinted quartz). Many large nuggets have been found historically at the site. These include W.H. Jones 52 oz, George Fox 78 oz, William Coulter (known as Santa Anna) 47 oz, Mitchell and Russell (surnames) 79 oz, 60 oz, 40 oz, 2 x 33 oz, 22.50 oz and 20 oz, 'Flash' Barry (named after his spending spree in Melbourne from gold finds in the Victorian goldfields) 37 oz, Young and party several from 37 oz to 23 oz, Alfred Bliss 37 oz, Thomas Wood 36 oz, and much more that goes unrecorded. Retired geologist Jock Braithwaite when interviewed in part about Moonlight Creek, gives a fine definition of a nugget: ' A nugget is if you drop it in the dish, and it goes ding'. The site is well known amongst gold fossickers, lured by the romantic name, and the improbable promises of riches, from the many nuggets found here in the past. Gold prospecting requires a permit, but not in the seventeen public fossicking sites on the South Island (always check the Department of Mines website for the most up to date information). Prosecutions for mining without a permit do occur, as a property owner near the entrance of the Moonlight Road found in 2016. Non motorised fossicking is allowed, in designated fossicking sites, including panning dishes, and small scale sluicing. The thought here is families will come, with children given the opportunity to pan for gold in the creek, finding a few specks, then going home happy having spent the day in the beautiful New Zealand outdoors. Not everyone buys into this. Online forums note conflicts with people behaving badly, including a local rock club who arrived, and were threatened by a man clearing trees. Gold does funny things to people, and does not always bring out the best in human nature. Small nuggets have been reportedly found up to recent times. The best time to go is spring and early summer, after the winter floods have potentially washed gold nuggets to the surface. The best time to go to avoid people is mid-winter, when there is knee deep mud, constant drizzling rain, and sub-zero temperatures. The entrance road to Moonlight Creek can be found at a location called Atarau, on the main road on the northern side of the Grey River. Where the road turns sharply is a pull-out area with prominent 'Moonlight' sign, and minor gold mining equipment. The fossicking site is via a narrow gravel road heading north from here into the thickly forested hills for 10 kilometres (sometimes used by logging trucks), to a place now known as Anderson's Flat. The fossicking area covers 59 768 ha, beginning 1.32 kilometres above the bridge crossing. A gold location near Queenstown is also called Moonlight Creek. Prospectors rushed to the site after the 1868 find, many described as 'hatters', a gold mining term for an elderly prospector having gone slightly mad in the head from gold fever. The focus was on a gutter running parallel to the creek, and disappearing into a terrace. Much tunnelling into the terrace failed to locate the gutter extension. There were reefs at Moonlight Creek, but it appears not enough for large company involvement. Several pegged claims, and a couple started work, but amounted to little. The creek was pegged by dredging companies with a similar result. An 1875 report states by this stage many had left, with one store remaining. Coarse gold was also found at Caledonian Creek, 5 miles away: Baxter Creek for fine gold; and Garden Gully, all seeing small numbers of miners around the same time as the Moonlight Creek rush. Long (like all day) difficult (steep, muddy, wet etc) but beautiful walks and mountain bike trails eg.

From countries with rapidly growing populations to countries gaining wealth quite rapidly, here are 11 fastest growing countries in the world. Subscribe to American Eye! 4. Panama While many Central American countries are beginning to move in the wrong direction, Panama is unique and home to the strategic canal. On one side of Panama is the Pacific Ocean and on the other side is the Caribbean sea. The US was the one who built the Panama Canal back in 1914 but no it’s the Panamanians who wreak the benefits of this modern wonder of engineering, which is certainly one of the reasons they’ve been able to grow. Panama gained full control of the canal thanks to a treaty in 1999. In 2016, The canal has expanded since then order to accommodate much larger ships. This should certainly be an important factor for the future of Panama. GDP has been continually increasing since 2012 however the wealth distribution here hasn’t been all that great with ¼ of the population living under the poverty line. Due to Panama’s tropical climate, they’ve been able to grow numerous crops which can be easily exported thanks to the expansion of their canal. The sky's the limit for panama if they can maintain social order 3. Ethiopia Believe it or not, but the country of Ethiopia has made drastic improvements in the past decade and both their GDP and population is on the rise. Ethiopia is home to one of the fastest growing economies in the world and their GDP growth percentage has been well above the world average. This measured in at first place reaching 8.3 percent in 2016, right above Uzbekistan. China has been willing to invest in Ethiopia’s infrastructure plan but everyone still kind of worried a drought might happen again which will set them back again. Despite the drought that set them back, they’ve been export quite a few products including coffee, sugar and cereals. Other industries appear as though they’ll surpass ethiopia’s agriculture such as leather manufacturing and gold mining. 2. India With an ever growing GDP per capita, India continues to surprise people how fast they are able to grow. It’s now the 2nd largest country by population. Home to one of the earliest civilizations in the Indus Valley, India has been a thriving nation full of resources and many foreign invaders knew this. However, in modern times, it’s taken india quite a while to adjust. Within the past few decades, they’ve become a global force to reckon with. Some major cities such as New Delhi and mumbai have over 20 million residents each. They seem to exponentially be growing in population and their population has risen by 200 million people since 2001. 1. Indonesia With 261 million people, indonesia is becoming a rapidly growing nation both economically and by population. From 1960 to the mid 1990’s the population here has doubled from 100 million to 200 million and they’ve continued to grow since. With naturally beautiful places such as Bali and various volcanoes, indonesia is home to many resources, even one of the biggest gold mines in the world. They now have the largest economy in southeast asia, and many believe they will continue to be a close 2nd to china in terms of economic growth in Asia. They replaced India as the 2nd fast growing G-20 economies.With their focused on a large variety of things such as agriculture, mining, manufacturing, and tourism, they don’t have all their eggs in one basket. Indonesia is a large manufacturer of many cheap goods, but unlike china, many people in the country will be the people who buy them. The rapid growth has taken its toll on the environment like many of these countries. The citarum river near the capital of Jakarta is labeled as one of the most polluted rivers in the world. Although the government appears to rather easily corruptible, it’s shown signs of progressing

We went to a location famous for gold where diamonds had previously also been found. Diamonds are best sourced using a gold pan in conjunction with a fine sieve as most alluvial diamonds tend to be very small in size.

One of the oldest mining sites in the world, Rosia Montana village offers archeologists and historians valuable insights into its 2,000-year mining tradition. Should the mining plans be approved, the surrounding mountains and nearby valley will be transformed into four gigantic mining pits and a dam holding cyanide-laced tailings, which could lead to a bigger environmental liability than the toxic sludge in Hungary in case of design failure. The mining debate has polarized Rosia Montana that no compromise seems possible in the near future. Dimiter Kenarov and Nadia Shira Cohen wade through the hidden toxic waste in European Union's newer member states, where EU's high environmental standards are still very difficult to enforce.

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St and managing editor of The News Doctors http://thenewsdoctors.com/ and independent financial journalist, Eric Dubin are back for episode #18 of the Welcome to Dystopia podcast. BIG NEWS IN THE PRECIOUS METALS MARKETS IS THE SPROTT PHYSICAL SILVER TRUST OR PSLV IS BUYING $75 MILLION WORTH OF MORE PHYSICAL SILVER! https://finance.yahoo.com/news/sprott-physical-silver-trust-prices-130917067.html Jason and Eric discuss what this purchase means for the silver market and that a lot of silver supply could be offline in the next few years because of low base metal prices. A lot of the annual silver production (more than 60%) is from base metal mines as by-product. French investment bank, Societe General (Soc Gen) predicts silver supply will fall by 9% in 2016 and by 13% in 2017 due to low base metal prices. Eric and Jason also discuss gold and silver mining share. Next, Jason and Eric discuss the Panama Papers leak and what motives are really behind it? Eric suggests listeners read this article: http://thenewsdoctors.com/panama-papers-hybrid-war-from-palmyra-to-panama-pepe-escobar/ Scumbag Nominees: 1) TSA for wasting $1.4 million on an IPAD app for airport arrows telling you right or left for which line for pat downs or body scanners (how wasteful!) 2) President Maduro of Venezuela- for his communist/Marxist policies and the hyperinflation and murders and corruption that big government is destroying Venezuela.
