On Location Video, Pakistan: Mining dust for gold
February 11, 2013 - 7:00pm

Rawalpindi, Pakistan — The price of gold has shot up by 450 percent in the past decade.

But the increase in gold prices means consumers are buying less jewelry, and craftsmen are making fewer new pieces. Fewer scraps are falling on the streets, and an already dangerous job has become even harder.
