Gold Exploration - Central Rand Goldfield - Johannesburg

JOHANNESBURG'S gold mining industry was established when a large gold reef was accidentally discovered on a remote farm in 1886, triggering a massive gold rush by thousands of speculators.
Within 10 years, there was a fully fledged town on the same spot; within 30 years it was South Africa's largest city. Today Johannesburg is Africa's biggest city, ringed by the deepest gold mines in the world.





The City of Johannesburg is littered with Defunct shafts, Old Mine Workings and Mine Waste Dumps... all a history to the name Egoli - The City of Gold... The Powerhouse of #Africa...
