Kawah Ijen is also a major sulfur mine. Labor here varies in age from the elderly to children. Despite working in harsh, hazardous environments, mining tools and safety equipment are still rudimentary. They don't even have a gas mask but only use a wet towel to protect themselves from the enormous amount of acid in the air. Photo: Francetvinfo.
