It was 08:07 on the 22nd of October, 2016. He sat on the first floor of the Kaneshie Market Complex.
What I don't know is whether he was planning his day, sleepy, hungry, hoping, thinking or was simply tired.

Small scale mining, popularly known as galamsey in #ghana comes with many health hazards and affects the environment in many negative ways.
These miners also use mercury in the process and they inhale toxic mercury fumes which is very dangerous.

In search of the Galamsey mines in Tarkwa. We had to climb mountains and go down valleys in order to see some mines. I was the last to climb this one because of my heavy backpack.

From the stairway of a hotel in Tarkwa in the Western Region of Ghana, through a glass window, I could see this American flag flying 'majestically' outside.

I was recently #onassignment for @compoundhouse in Tarkwa, in the Western Region to cover the galamsey (small mining) business which has been in the news recently for all the wrong reasons.

In this photo: This is a workshop where the stones which are brought from the mines are crashed. Crashing is done by machines which are made in Tarkwa or from other places.
