  Alas, there was a third theory of where the gold came from in the Wits Basin, long since forgotten. In Ed Antrobus wrote a book called, Witwatersrand gold— years: A review of the discovery and development of the Witwatersrand Goldfield as seen from the geological viewpoint. It was a limited edition of only copies and can be quite. Growing concern reported in research papers for the future of the Amazon Basin is due to plans by the Brazilian government to clear portions of these rainforests for future development. Prior to , , square kilometers had already been cleared in .

Book Description: South Africa is facing the increasing challenge of acid mine drainage (AMD) whose genesis is the country's mining history, which paid limited attention to post-mining mine site management. In mineral resource-rich Africa, this has emerged as one of the most daunting challenges of our time. The Burnstone goldfield is defined by an 18 kilometer long, northwesterly trending mineralized corridor hosting the Kimberley Reef, one of four main gold-bearing units in the Witwatersrand Basin.
