The an­cient gold mine at Jin­shan (Gold Moun­tain), Dex­ing, has thrived for sev­eral cen­turies. In Au­gust 1980, ge­ol­o­gists found a large gold mine in the an­cient min­ing area of Jin­shan, bring­ing this old mine new op­por­tu­ni­ties. To­day, the new mine has be­come one with daily ore pro­duc­tion ex­ceed­ing 2,500 tons. The pho­tos show us mod­ern work­ers at Jin­shan ex­hibit­ing their newly pro­duced gold bricks.
