Marilyn Gomone’s husband works as a gold miner and that’s how she got into mining herself. As a mother of four, mining requires a lot of self-determination and strength. Working for days on end in the mine, she goes back to the village to care for her children. She’s hoping to find that "one-million gold nugget" soon to open a sari-sari store somewhere in a bigger town. This would give the family a much stabler life.
