Heating the gold

It's heavy, don't run off with it Jack

“The desire of gold is not for gold

It is for the means of freedom and benefit.

  1. WOW!!! Where did Jack get THAT?

    • It is at Kalgoorlie but they had the door locked and a guard there as well. To big and heavy to slip in your pocket…

    • I did not want to slip the guard into my pocket Cindy.
      Pauline may have had her eye on the guard, I had my eye on the gold.

  2. Great shots.

  3. love that quote and love this post! 🙂

  4. super entry Pauline, who has ever seen a gold bar being produced!

  5. Very cool!

    • G’day Preeti. Actually it was very hot to start with, but I agree with you it was very cool when we got to hold it

  6. You are right, a gold bar is extremely heavy! And very slippery too! I saw gold bars being made at Gold Reef mine in Johannesburg; as you left the room you were allowed to pick up a bar and if you could hold it you could keep it – haha, impossible, the damn thing just slithered out of your hand…I tried very hard though 🙂

  7. A very precious metal! Great post for the theme.

    • Without the gold rush in the 1800’s Australia was on the brink of bankruptcy, and of course at the moment all the metals we sell to China and India are keeping our economy afloat. But there are signs the metal industry is slowing down. Then what??????????
