More info

During the dry season, temporary islands emerge from the dark bed of the Caroni River. Like all other water courses which cross the Guayana region of the Federal state of Bolivar, its water is rich in alkaloids and tannins caused by decaying plant life in the thick forests. Collectively, these rivers are known as the “black rivers” as opposed to the “white rivers” which flow down from the Andes Mountains, bringing with them a variety of sediments. However, the concentration of mining activity in the valleys, particularly gold mining, is damaging the quality of the water courses. Mercury, used to extract the gold, is emptied into the rivers and causes serious foetal damage. In addition the increase in the number of mining basins is encouraging the appearance of mosquitoes and the appearance of malaria in previously healthy areas.
