How Does It Feel To Be In A Gold Mine

206

Gold mines, even today, we associate them with something very exciting. After all, not for nothing there were gold fevers, which surely didn´t result in much of a clear thinking. If you have an opportunity to visit one of the modern operating mines, you may want to put on hold, the visions of actually seeing glittering gold. What’s most striking is the unbelievable scale of everything that comes in use when mining for gold. Machines as large as few storeys high buildings that  from a distance look like miniature toys for children, given the enormity of what you see around the machines. Welcome to some of the impressive gold mines around the world.
