A video of a massive gold mine that was built at the site of the world’s largest gold mine in the US has gone viral on social media.
The gold mine was built in 1896, but is now being used to produce synthetic diamond and precious metal jewellery.
The video was posted on YouTube and was posted in July 2017.
It shows workers on scaffolding as the video begins.
“The mine is being built right now, but the mine is just a fraction of the size of the mine itself,” said John Dickson, director of the Pennsylvania Museum of Art.
“It’s like a giant warehouse, the size, that we’ve never seen before.”
Dickson said the size and size of gold mines were rare in the United States.
“We’ve never had a massive one like this in Pennsylvania, never,” he said.
“In fact, the only other place you’d ever get a massive mine is on the west coast of Australia.”
In the video, the worker can be heard describing the work process.
“This is a very important part of the job that we have to do,” he says.
“When you’re digging, it’s a long process.”
“This part of it takes us about four days to do this.”
Denton said he was blown away by the size.
“I thought, ‘Wow, I’m not seeing it’,” he said of the video.
“You know, we’re building this thing that could be worth millions of dollars.”
The Pennsylvania Museum said it was aware of the viral video.
A spokesperson said it had been shared more than 300,000 times.
“Our goal is to connect with and connect with our visitors to create an even more authentic and compelling experience,” the spokesperson said.
