Illicit Gold Buying in South Africa in 1910

This is a collection of reports about illicit gold buying (aka I.G.B.) belonging to R. W. Schumacher, senior personnel for H. Eckstein & Co. (later known as Corner House), one of Johannesburg, South Africa’s most influential gold mining companies. Most of the contents are letters from Mr. Clancy to the Transvaal Town Police about amalgam (unwrought gold) thefts at Crown Mines. These documents are shared for community transcription with permission from the Barlow World Rand Mines Archives, in Johannesburg, South Africa, where this collection is held.
