Gold Mining Process In Suriname

Since the mid-1989s, small-scale gold mining has boomed in the Suriname Amazon. National annual gold production has risen from a few kilograms per year in the early 1980s to about 10-15 tons of gold per year today. Almost all gold is extracted by small-scale gold miners -- informal, manual, or mechanized miners who use rudimentary prospecting.
