Illegal Minery

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

South America is of course closely associated with mining, going back to the days of the Spanish conquistadors.  While the continent's gold and silver resources have largely been exhausted, the Andean nation of Peru continues to be one of the world's most important countries for mining.  Unfortunately, some of this activity is performed illegally, at great cost to the environment.  In this video, contributor Niels Ahmes used a drone to expose an illegal mining operation in the Amazon Basin part of the country.
