In the last 60 years, South Africa’s
gold output totaled several billion
dollars. Before the war this high

try was producing as much as 300
tons of gold a year. The particles of

hardly visible, and are distributed
through rock that must be crushed.
It takes 125,000 tons of rock to yield
a ton of gold.
