Men dig for cassiterite (tin ore), coltan, which is used in mobile telephones and computers, and manganese on May 28, 2013 at the Mudere mine, near Rubaya, some 9 kms from the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo city of Goma. Miners dig 50 meters underground for the minerals before transporting them to a nearby river where they are separated from rocks and sand before being sold to dealers. Mine accidents are common in DR Congo.
