  • Step 6
  • Later, the traders returned.
  • Step 7
  • If the amount of gold dust was acceptable, they took it and left.
  • Step 8
  • If not, they went away and waited for the Wangarans to return and leave more gold dust.
  • Step 9
  • The groups bargained back and forth this way until the trade was complete.
  • Step 10
  • This system of silent barter had two advantages. First it allowed people who spoke different languages to conduct trades. Second, it allowed the Wangarans to guard the secret of where their gold mines were located.
