The Processing Plant
  • The Processing plant is where the gold gets crushed up in the crusher.
  • Once the rock is in the trucks it gets taken to the processing plant.
  • Then it gets crushed up by a series of steel balls, the first the size of a shot put, the second as large as a tennis ball and finally golf ball sized. This means that the rock becomes finely crushed.
  • It gets mixed in water, chemicals and bubbles. Now it gets melted. Then it gets put on a wall of steel. Now it gets poured into a big black gas fire. It now gets poured from the gas fire into a metal container. Then the top of the gold gets hit with a little pick to get all the gooey black liquid out. Now it gets tipped over and you've got a block of gold.
