The child did not appear to be in bad health but was performing dangerous work that should only be done by adults, said Simona Broomes, president of the Women Miners Association.
His exact age was not known, but he appeared to be no older than eight. He was found in the remote Puruni region, near the Venezuela border as Broome and members of her group performed a tour of work camps to check on working conditions.
The boy was placed in protective custody while he works with local authorities to locate his mother, who is believed to be working in another gold mining camp, she said.
"What concerned us the most is that he is not going to school and was talking and cursing like the other grown men in the camp and contributing to the conversation as though he is a grown man," Broomes said in a phone interview while traveling by river through the rugged region.
