GQ’s “In Gold We Trust”

GQ Magazine sent office building Wells Tower on the road, to take a look at the current crop of gold prospectors in California.  Despite Tower’s discouragement of the value of gold, the story is full of optimistic people who have been making a living in the gold business.  As wise businesspeople, they might not be the ones digging the gold out of the ground, but they’re certainly making enough dollars to create a stash of shiny gold with their profits off selling claims and supporting the wily 49ers willing to take the risk and look for gold themselves.
