Goldmine reveals Peru as a country caught in the midst of a modern-day gold rush rapidly transforming its land and people. Thanks to mining, Peru's economy is booming and poverty rates have fallen by half. But the industry has done more than improve financial metrics. From the Amazon to the Andes, violent conflicts tied to resource extraction are on the rise. In June of 2013, we set out to capture and share the perspectives of governments, companies, and communities at the heart of the struggle.
