A traffic sign is seen near Barrick Gold Corp.'s Veladero gold mine, on the Argentine side of the border district between Chile's Huasco province and Argentina's San Juan province, a few kilometers from the site for the Pascua Lama gold project, some 834 km (518 miles) northeast of Santiago, Chile, February 28, 2007. The peaks of the Andes mountains at Pascua Lama are desolate at more than 5,000 meters, especially in the summer when only scattered icefields decorate otherwise barren slopes of dull red, grey and yellow.

The sign reads, "Warning - Working Machines" Picture taken February 28, 2007. REUTERS/Pav Jordan (CHILE) - RTR1N18Z
