Gold Rush: How I made, lost and made a fortune by Jim Richards | Queensland Reviewers Collective

When Jim Richards left home to make his fortune in a gold rush, he had no language skills, no money and no real plan. But when he found diamond-filled pot holes in the remote rivers of Guyana, his problems really began. Chasing gold and diamond rushes around the world, Richards worked with local miners in some of the maddest, baddest and most dangerous places on earth. His dramatic journey ranges from the piranha-infested rivers of South America to the blazing deserts of Australia, from the world's biggest mining scam in Indonesia to the war-torn jungles of Laos. To find the gold, first Jim had to find himself.

When Jim Richards was in his final year as a student in , a noticeboard advertisement for summer vacation work in a gold mine in West Wales caught his attention. Jim headed off for his holidays to the mining district of Dalaucouthi where, in his spare time, he struck out on his own to search for gold in the tailings. This experience led him to research books on gold mining from Ancient Egypt and environs through to more modern times in California, Brazil and Australia. 👐
