For What It’s Worth – Gold of South Africa

South Africa has the world’s largest gold reserves, all along the Witwatersrand Basin, a 300km long geological formation. Along it are seven gold mines, and each have been mined for large amounts of precious metal. Designer Dillon Marsh has a clever series where he visualizes the gold mined from each location using computer generated renderings. The giant gold orbs are sized according to the amount recovered.
