The Gold Rush of South America: Gotta-See Video

//

What does a gold digger do when the ground is frozen? Move south.

Watch the Gold Rush crew as they pick up and move to Guyana in South America. The country produces 400,000 ounces of gold annually, officially. But off the books there may be as much as $1 billion in gold every year.

The gold rush there is in full swing and as the gold expert says in the video, "there's no permafrost," which means that unlike back in the States, these men can mine year-round. via Discovery Channel
