Diamond or gold mine


Explanation:
Mining for gold or diamonds in rivers or old river beds whereby the garimpeiro sifts through gravel using various sizes of sieves. The diamonds are heavy and eventually fall to the bottom of the material being sieved so that when the garimpeiro inverts it, any diamonds are on top.
