Hycroft Field Trip | Mining University

Hycroft Field Trip

Did you ever wonder what 500 ounces of gold and silver looked like?

On Saturday, July 21st a group of staff from the Allied Nevada corporate office in Reno took a field trip to the Hycroft mine. I've been to the mine many times but what I found really interesting was the refinery. This picture shows me holding a doré (gold and silver) bar. The bar isn't very big but it does weigh 500 troy ounces, that's nearly 35 pounds.
