Hoffman made a team of unemployed men and started their expedition for gold mining. Since Todd was not a mining expert, he learned about mining and the business in it for over three years.
After Todd earned a decent amount of money, he already had set up a great crew by then. Todd invested all his money in a mining operation which was in Guyana which is in South Africa. Todd had a lot of expectation from the trip, but it ended very badly. The trip was a total failure. Hoffman gambled a lot with his money. After learning the whole of the mining business,
Todd invested all his money on and earnings for an expedition in South Africa which did not end up so well making him suffer a huge loss. Hoffman and his team of miners came back home with just 2 ounces of gold.
