APTOPIX Peru Illegal Gold

Women try to rescue some belongings after authorities blew up their illegal mining operation in Huepetuhe district in Peru's Madre de Dios region in Peru, Monday, April 28, 2014. Authorities began enforcing a ban on illegal mining Monday in the Huepetuhe district. They had given the state’s illegal miners until April 19 to get legal or halt operations. Illegal mining accounts for about 20 percent of Peru's gold exports, but most miners are poor migrants from the Andean highlands. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
