Gold Rush: How I Made, Lost and Made a Fortune
Jim Richards has done it all: dived for diamonds in the piranha-infested rivers of South America, discovered a fabulously rich goldmine in the Australian outback, got caught up in the world’s biggest mining scam in Indonesia, and even started a gold rush in the war-torn jungles of Laos. Today he’s one of the mining industry’s leading executives. This is his story.
