Workers move piles of ore from one heap to another before it is loaded onto trucks in a small iron ore mine. Most of the workers have migrated to the mining area having been displaced from their traditional livelihoods in the surrounding countryside. Lacking title deeds for land on which they have farmed and hunted for millennia, the rural adivasi communities are being displaced to make way for new industrial developments planned to capitalise on the land's mineral wealth.
