What Became of the Crow?

ByRobert MoriartyJeremy Irwin

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Every great gold discovery has a unique element that made it a reality. At Grasberg, miners solved "unbeatable terrain challenges", accessing a vertical mountain peak to mine one of the world's largest copper - gold deposits. For the Klondike Gold Rush, a prospector shook gold nuggets out of a streamside bush while building a fire to cook his food. At Mongolia's Oyu Tolgoi, a legendary minefinder spent his last dollar drilling one last hole. In South Africa's Witwatersrand, a simple prospector's find belied the fact that, instead of a short life, a gigantic mineralized deposit would be tapped, giving up 40% of all the gold ever mined. But that was then... What if now, in a bone-dry portion of Australia, a mammoth gold deposit defying superlatives is on the cusp of being born? The elements? A rogue-thinking geologist, a cantankerous newsletter analyst and a financial heavyweight addicted to long-shot asymmetric bets looked at "the evidence" in a way no one else had done before. And proposed a new theory that - not unlike the Wits - a massive multiple layered, wildly-profitable goldfield lay before them that could be mined. For decades. In your hands is The Inside Story of the Greatest Gold Discovery in History! David H. Smith
