Ouro e mercúrio em Latour (1999)

In the morning before leaving we meet on the terrace of the little hotel restaurant called Eusebio (Figure 2.2). We are in the center of Boa Vista, a rather rough frontier town where the garimperos sell the gold that they have extracted by shovel, by mercury, by gun, from the forest and from the Yanomami. (Latour 1999:27)
