Goldome is one of the largest most modern milling operations we have visited. The tunnels have been sealed but the milling operation remains wide open for the random explorer, party-er, or vandal. In fact the site has been extensively vandalized and looted yet remains a great site to explore because the bulk of the operation remains.
The site begins with an ore dump and grizzly that has a long conveyor to a giant ball mill. The milled ore was then pumped to a massive bank of froth flotation cells and filters. The waste slurry was then fed to several giant cyanidation tanks, some of which remain half full. A giant control panel with mimick board remains in the mill office overlooking the entire operation.
Definitely an awesome look at a semi-modern gold mining operation. The un-gated road to the mill is in great condition and no fences or gates exist. Be warned the site contains hazardous chemicals and is listed as a Superfund site.
