Central Rand Gold Field
The main gold reef of the Witwatersrand Basin was discovered for the first time on the Langlaagte farm in 1886. This farm and the surrounding region later became known as the Central Rand Gold Field and provided the staging ground for Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city. Since then an estimated 250 million troy ounces of gold has been produced from this goldfield. The main visual shows the gold sphere occupying Ghandi Square in the centre of Johannesburg.
