Gold Panning

Discovered by Edwin Bray in 1885, so named because it looked as if the rock was formed entirely of gold, resulting in the mine becoming well known throughout the world.

The Golden Quarry, the Oriental, the Edwin Bray, and the Nil Desperandum together composed the Sheba Reef Gold Mining Company and production from these mines astounded the world. Shares of 1 Pound were re-sold for 120 Pounds per share.

After only working two years on his Golden Quarry, Edwin Bray was laid to rest in the Church Street Cemetery in Pretoria. Climbing the old wooden steps to reach the quarry’s entrance and crossed a small narrow wooden bridge you find yourself in Bray’s Golden Quarry which had its beginning almost 130 years ago.
