This May 23, 2013 photo, shows El Corral, a village of 200 inhabitants, mostly from the Diaguita ethnic group, located just downstream from the world’s highest gold mine, Barrick Gold Corp's Pascua-Lama project in northern Chile. The Diaguitas live in the foothills of the Andes, where for as long as anyone can remember they’ve drunk straight from the glacier-fed river that irrigates their orchards and vineyards with clean water. But since the Barrick gold mine project moved in, residents claim the river levels have dropped, the water is murky in some places and some complain of cancerous growths and aching stomachs.
