Literature:

For centuries, men have exploited the mineral wealth of the Andes Range. First the Incas, then the Spanish extracted gold and silver, the wealth of empire. Gold, silver and copper are still mined intensively today, but so too are tin, zinc, cadmium and antimony.

Gold production represents 2,2% of the Bolivian economy. Zinc represents 13% and tin represents 5% of the country's economy. These three major products of the Bolivian mining industry were listed among those produced by child labor in the 2014 U.S. Department of Labor's report that included a List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor. The DOL has also reported that "children continue to engage [...] in the worst forms of child labor in mining" and that "child labor inspections remain insufficient relative to the scope of the problem.

Mining had profound consequences for indigenous society, severely exploited to provide workers for the mines and refining mills.
