Gold mining thrives in Busoga

It is 1:28pm and the heat from the sun is at its most merciless in Nsango village in Namayingo district.Steven Kuuchya Ajob lifts the pick axe and strikes through a black rock, 58 feet below the surface in an open-pit gold mine.“You hear that? Do you hear that? That is the sound of gold,” he says, as he lifts the pick axe again and digs deeper into the rock. He is covered in dust from head to toe with no mask to prevent him from inhaling the dust.
