Kōrero: Gold and gold mining

Macetown, 1982 (2 o 2)

Macetown, 1982

The only traces left of Macetown are the road leading there and the trees planted by the miners and their families. Scattered throughout the West Coast, Otago and Coromandel Peninsula are ghost towns like this one, where abandoned mining equipment slowly rusts away.
