Department of Chocó, Colombia

My search for green gold, that is gold that has been mined without the use of mercury and cyanide, took me to the Department of Chocó in Colombia, South America.

The Chocó biogeographic region, which has been recognized internationally as one of the most biologically diverse areas on the planet, stretches along the Northwestern edge of South America from Southern Panama to Northwestern Ecuador.
