These workers are not hired to clean the city’s dirty streets and gutters.They’re actually sweeping the streets for gold.The reason why we’re sweeping is to find gold because when jeweler’s made jewelry,small gold particles get stuck on their clothes and shoes and connects with the dirt.
这些工人不是被雇佣来清洁城市肮脏的街道和排水沟的。他们实际上是在扫街淘金。我们清扫的原因是为了找到黄金,因为当珠宝商制作珠宝时,细小的黄金颗粒会粘在他们的衣服和鞋子上,并与泥土相接。
This is a commercial hub for jewelers in Karachi;thousands of dollars of gold are bought and sold here each day but a new industry has literally sprung from the groundwhere a growing army of people come to sweep the dirt hoping for a small portion of the precious gold that jewelers leave behind.
这是卡拉奇珠宝商的商业中心;每天都有成千上万美元的黄金在这里买卖,但是一个新兴的产业却从地下冒了出来,越来越多的人来到这里扫街,希望能从珠宝商留下的珍贵黄金中分得一小部分。
There are very tiny particles in jewelers’ hands;when they wash their hands, those particles get washed away and into the street gutters.We collect everything in the gutters and extract the gold from it.The street panning is done in three stage and each stage requires a unique set of skills.
珠宝商手中有非常微小的颗粒;当他们洗手的时候,这些颗粒会被冲走,进入街道的排水沟。我们把排水沟的所有的东西都收集起来在排水沟里,然后从中提取黄金。街道淘金分三个阶段进行,每个阶段都需要一套独特的技巧。
The first stage, searching for particles of gold.The second stage involves separating the precious particles from the dirt.The third and final phase is refining the gold in a hot furnace to separate it from other metals.We get gold in the form of dirt.We melt it in the furnace using acid.We do it twice and the chemicals separate gold, silver and copper.
第一阶段,寻找黄金颗粒。第二阶段是将珍贵的颗粒从泥土中分离出来。第三个,也是最后一个阶段是在高温熔炉中提炼黄金,将其与其他金属分离。黄金以泥土的形式被我们收集起来,然后我们用酸在炉子里熔化它。我们要做两次,然后化学物质能使金,银和铜分来开来。
The heat and the chemicals used to separate metal from dirt or hazardous can make workers sick but for many who pan the streets for gold,a steady source of income is often more important than their health.
高温和用于将金属与污垢或有害物质分离的化学物质会让工人生病,但对许多在大街上淘金的人来说,稳定的收入来源往往比他们的健康更重要。
This work is quite injurious to health; we get asthma, however this our employment; we do not have any other skill to rely on.Workers say the conditions are less than ideal but many are passionate about what they do.It’s laborious work that offers no guarantees requires enormous attention to detailand most of all, stubbornness to see what others often don’t.A street lined with gold.
这项工作对健康相当有害,我们得了哮喘,但这是我们的工作,因为我们没有其他的技能可以依靠。工人们表示,工作条件并不理想,但许多人对自己的工作充满热情。这是一项辛苦的工作,没有任何保证,需要尽其所能地关注细节,最重要的是,要顽强地去看别人看不见的东西。这是一条铺满黄金的街道。
