Farmer Juana Lopez shows a tumor growing inside her mouth, in El Corral, a small town of about 200 inhabitants, mostly from the Diaguita ethnic group, near the facilities of Barrick Gold Corp's Pascua-Lama project in northern Chile, Thursday, May 23, 2013. Lopez blames her health problem on contamination of the water caused by the mining project. Since the Barrick gold mine project moved in, residents claim the river levels have dropped, the water is murky in places and complain of health problems including cancerous growths and aching stomachs.
