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. 


































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... 



































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.
