The Witwatersrand Basin is a 300km long geological formation in South Africa that holds the world’s largest known gold reserves. Since its discovery in 1886, seven separate goldfields have been established along its arc. I’ve examined four of these goldfields so far and I’m currently working on the remaining three. Using CGI I’ve represented the total amount extracted from a goldfield in a single photograph. The rest of the photos provide context.
