In 1886 George Harrison found Gold on a farm called Langlaagte.  Johannesburg sprung up as a small town on the Gold Reef.  Mining commenced and gold laden rock extracted.  To separate the gold from the rock it was first crushed.  Gold extraction was far from perfect.   Large amounts of Gold remained in the ore and mine dumps grew as the waste piled up.

These momentously large dumps found another use as the filling to level the streets and paving of Johannesburg.   As a result the streets of Johannesburg still contain large amounts of gold.

 “The streets of Johannesburg are paved in gold”
