Red-Hot Resources

Is That Gold?

What this series of videos shows (hopefully) is a drilling operation at the gold resource. The miners are drilling like crazy to prove and expand the known resource. They have six drills going. The thing that struck me was how fast the drill I went to see moved -- you could actually see it descending into the rock. it drills 80 meters per day.

Then I got to see the miners take the drill bit apart and remove the rock core. They then have these cores tested to see how much gold is in the rock.

Here is the last video of the series -- "Is That Gold?" We were having a pretty good time.
