It was founded that a farm that was initially bought for a mere R8 contains massive amounts of Helium that's valued at a whopping $100 billion, which is over 1.45 trillion in the South African rand currency.
The farm was bought by a company called Renegern which is owned by Stefano Marani and Nick Mitchell. Finding Helium wasn't the initial plan when they bought the farm in 2012, instead they wanted a natural gas but after doing research conducted by professionals, they found that the land contained huge amounts of Helium.
This obviously made Mr Marini and Mr Michell to drop their initial plans and focus on their new treasure which is valued at $100 billion.
According to sources from multiple publications, before the Helium in South Africa was discovered, only 9 countries were exporters of the gas and now with Mzansi on the line, it will add up to 10 countries, with Mzansi leading the pack due to its possible reserves in the country.
