In December of 2016, 101 East travelled into Ghana's tropical rainforest where 30,000 Chinese miners hunt for gold.
Ghana is one of the world's poorest countries, yet it is rich in gold.
For a decade now, Chinese miners from the region of Shanglin have travelled there to try their luck mining gold.
China's African Gold Rush
101 East travelled to the middle of the tropical rainforest to meet the Chinese miners and Ghanaian workers trying to escape poverty.
But is this gold rush really benefiting the impoverished nation, or is all the money going back to China with the miners - leaving Ghana with an environmental bill to pay?
