Indonesia - Bangka Island - Rebo - Collectors, miners and pontoon owner weighting the tin collected at the end of the working day. Each pontoon can collect around 15 kg of low concentrate tin per day. Depending on the tin global price, at the end of the day each miner can earn around 15 USD, double the average pay of a farm labourer.This once fishermen village has turned into a miner village since mining is much more profitable than fishing.
