Gold mining in Kenya

(21/28) A man uses a wedge and a steel stick to extract gold-containing ores inside the mine, about 30 meters deep from the surface, at one of the gold mining sites in Macalder, Migori county, western Kenya, 29 February 2016. The recent explorations conducted by the government and private companies are said to have revealed large gold deposits in western Kenya, which could lead to the large-scale commercial mining that could put Kenya on the map of the top gold producers in Africa.
