Mongolian Ninja Miners

Ninja miners are an interesting phenomenon from Mongolia. They are called this way because the bowls they use (which are green) resemble the shells on the backs of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.


These "miners" dig small patches of land for gold. This trend started after harsh weather conditions made the traditional nomadic livestock-herding lifestyle less fruitful.
