Children As Young As Four Exploited In Madagascar Mica Mines

Over 10,800 children between the ages of four and 18 are estimated to be working in Mica mines in Madagascar. Mica, a group of silicate minerals mainly extracted in India and Madagascar, is largely used in the production of electronics, cosmetics, or cars due to its ability to transmit electric force without overheating.
