This web presentation by HRW makes excellent use of photographs. It examines the Porgera gold mine in Papua New Guinea’s highlands and the problems faced by the local community because of its presence. Click the tile to view.

I should add that Barrick, the mine’s operators, have since released this statement in which they make no attempt to deny HRW’s allegations and fully commit to redressing them.
