Brussels, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: Various dates At the start of the South African gold mining industry, hundreds of companies were founded, each with their own claims. Most of these firms were small ventures, often financed with English capital and listed on the London Stock Exchange. Others were listed in Paris, or financed locally in the Transvaal. Many companies had a short life, were succeeded by others, or taken over by larger, more successful companies. In the end, consolidation took place and other mines became exhausted. This collectionis far from complete, but gives an excellent overview of the South African mining history.
