Gold…

I came upon this imposing structure in an old gold mine in western Arizona. It appears to be a conveyor for ore that comes from the mine. It carries the ore past miners who spot the gold and drop it into buckets while the unpromising remainder is loaded into wagons and hauled away.

At least that was what I figured.
