Goldig


Gold

Sought after since the beginning of recorded history, gold remains a highly valued metal, reaching record highs recently, climbing over 135% in value in the past year alone. The recent rise in the price of gold comes just as annual worldwide mine production has decreased – down by nearly 8% since 2001. In human history, only 161,000 tons of gold have been mined – more than half of that extracted in just the past 50 years. Collected here are a handful of recent photographs of people searching for, mining, rediscovering, celebrating, buying and selling gold. (37 photos total)

In der Schlange stehen, Hand durch’s Loch stecken und dann den Stein einmal anfassen dürfen. Mmhh … warte mal, woran erinnert mich das nur?
