Somewhere in the Solomon Islands, a giant gold mine was discovered in 1997. At the time, the locals had no idea how to properly mine gold… and now, about 3,000 people are making a VERY healthy living doing it.
From what I have seen today, digging for gold all day in this humidity (and heavy rain) is EXTREMELY difficult, but the best ones are making up to $3,000 a day. For all you math wizards, that’s over 1 million dollars a year.
Here is the full story of the gold miners in the Solomon Islands. Enjoy!
