The artisanal gold mine has a new road that leads to the Gambia River so that soil can be taken there for washing out. Bilbo (adult male) and Jumkin (subadult male) use it to meander through the area - they ultimately spend the night a few hundred meters away. They time their use of the area with the times when people have not yet arrived or have already left the area for the day. At another site in their range, it appeared that the chimps were timing the days they were using the area with the 2 days of the week that people were not supposed to be working at the mine.
