Indonesia: Sulfur Miner
Ijen caldera is one large crater that has much sulfur, which lies hidden between sheer walls of deeply furrowed rock of Ijen Volcano. This volcano emits gasses through fumaroles inside the crater and the miners trapped the gasses through stone and ceramic pipes to condenses the gasses into a molten pure sulfur and then, load up as much as they can carry for the several kilometers to the weighing station. The amount of money that these miners take home approximately 5 USD, for the whole day. It means three times loading for about 60 kg molten sulfur from bellow to the weight station.
