Many laborers died in gold digging
According to this article of Warren, during the Chola Empire, people used to dig the ground by hand and extract gold. Once Warren lured the villagers to get gold out, then only a few gold particles came out of the lot of soil. If things did not work out, then modern technology was used for this, yet to no avail. Rather, many laborers lost their lives. Exhausted, the British government banned the excavation. Actually, getting gold was not that easy either.
Excavation was done in torch-lantern light
Years later, this article of Warren was read by British soldier Michael Fitzgerald Llewelly in 1871 and he was obsessed with getting gold. He started doing research. In 1873 permission was obtained from the Maharaja of Mysore for excavation and in 1875 the excavation started. You can’t even imagine how horrifying this job was. Torches and lanterns were used for illumination.

With the help of machines, 95 percent gold started coming out in 1902. 30 thousand laborers started working in the mine. Levy’s experiment was successful, the mine started spewing gold.
Excavation is closed but there is gold in the mines
After independence, the Government of India took over these mines and Bharat Gold Mines Limited Company started looking after the work. Initially everything was fine, but in the 80s, the condition of the company started deteriorating, the situation was such that there was no money to pay the workers. By 2001, the decision to stop the excavation was taken and as soon as the excavation stopped, the Kolar Gold Fields turned into ruins. However, it is claimed in many reports that gold is present here even today.
