Mining Sand from the Batang Hari River

0 ratings | 35964 views
http://wp.me/pdZo0-PF The Batang Hari River provides many benefits for the people of the Jambi Province. Not only does it contain fish, it also has sand and gravel, that is dredged out (often by hand) to be used for making construction. The river also contains a significant amount of gold. The Batang Hari River is the longest on the island of Sumatra, around 500 miles long. The source of the river is from the far western mountain range in the Jambi Province, known as the Bukit Barisan (row of hills). The video shows workers bringing a barge laden with sand to the bank of the river, which was then unloaded by hand. It is starting to become common to see heavy equipment used in these types of jobs, which is also reflected in the video.
