Hi Henning,

I am not clear on what the object is you are looking at?

Do you mean the water pools and pits along the south bank of that
river? If you mean those, if I had to guess, it looks like artisan
mining to me.  One active area and a few small older pits. But that is
just my guess, I will be interested to find out what the local
knowledge is about it.

But that would be my first guess.

Next would be agriculture of some sort, maybe.
