Gold miners in French Guiana

The geographer François-Michel Le Tourneau is back from doing fieldwork in French Guiana with the clandestine Brazilian gold miners who are active in this French overseas territory.

About 40 individual interviews were done with a number of individuals working around the gold placers (workers, placers' heads, merchants, motorcycle pilots, prostitutes...).

This study is part of the GUYINT project which analyzes land governance in the Guiana plateau.
