The Philippines are abundant in resources but it is still very poor. With adventurous methods poor people dig for the noble metal and using mercury to extract the gold, putting their health at risk and even sometimes paying with their life. The workers dive down to the ground of a hole to nd gold while a compressor blows air through a plastic tube in their lungs. Up to 8 hours they work in this way dreading being buried by the hole collapsing. Phillippines 2013
