Gold was discovered on the Witwatersrand, in the Transvaal, in 1886. Thousands of white and black South Africans were employed on the mines by 1890. Even though the Transvaal gold mines were the richest in the world they were the most difficult to mine because the reefs lay so deep underground. The gold had to be mined by shafts as opposed to open mines, like diamonds.
