|Manica, Mozambique - They are washing the soil, day and night, hoping to reveal gold.|
80 percent of gold prospectors arrive illegally from the neighboring country of Zimbabwe. The miners claw at the earth between 15 and 20 metres beneath the surface, in an extensive tunnel system.
The diggers work on their own account, and after selling the gold they must give half of the money to the owner of the land.
