  • Short Summary

    Men rush to stake claims on land where they believe gold can be mined.

  • Description

    Gold Rush in South Africa.

    Shot of men running across a field, the field is packed. Pan on rocky terrain, pan to more of men running, alongside a few cattle running. Closer shot of men staking their claims by putting stakes in the ground. A few men stand around talking.

    American cataloguer's note: gold was originally discovered in SA in 1886, this must be a new area found in the 1920s.
