SULPHUR MINING IN JAVA INDONESIA SHOWN HERE IN THIS VIDEO

On the Indonesian island of Java, men mine sulphur from inside Ijen crater where there is a lake filled with two and a half million tonnes of acid. Breathing in Hydrogen Sulphide around 40 times the safe level set in the UK, the miners bear the scars of their labour – poisoned lungs and skin criss-crossed with burns and scars. They carry 90kg loads up 200 metres out of the crater and back down the volcano’s outer slopes to a weighing station – a journey they make several times a day.

“I do it to feed my wife and kid. No other job pays this well,” adds Sulaiman.
