Xingu River, Para State, Brazil. The Volta Grande; Ressaca settlement, an old garimeiro illegal gold-mining town. The river which provides the town with its principal means of transport and provides fish will be reduced to a trickle when the Belo Monte hydroelectric dam is built, making the town effectively uninhabitable.
