Mato Grosso, Brazil

Men work in a gold mine in Peixoto de Azevedo in northern Mato Grosso, which is one of the largest gold producing areas in Brazil. Part of the extraction activity is illegal and even those legalised do not comply with environmental legislation because there is no enforcement by the Brazilian authorities. The result is polluted rivers and degraded regions that look more like the lunar soil than a territory that was once covered by the Amazon rainforest.
