In May 2012, I went to one of traditional gold mining, community gold mining which located remote and hard to reach areas in West Kalimantan. In the gold mining areas men, women, and children work in artisanal gold mining to make a living. Artisanal or small-scale mining is mining through labor-intensive, low-tech methods, and belongs to the informal sector of economy. Community gold mining is a tradition of several regions in Indonesia. It is estimated that about 12 percent of global gold production comes from artisanal mines.
