Searching For Diamonds Using Seruca - Diamond Mines In Color, Sierra Leone

RefNum: sl-5421. A seruca is a special type of screen which is similar to a gold pan, but has stainless steel window-screen wire in the bottom, and is round bottomed. After miners with help of water screen out the over-sized material, there are only small stones left, and the heavy minerals eventually being concentrated on the screen bottom. What caught my eye was the color contrast of the water and the mud, it was just incredible.
