See the Process of Smelting and Refining Gold

You probably own quite of few items that are made from gold, such as coins, jewelry, or other valuables. But have you ever wondered how those items are made? Or how gold is expertly refined in the factory? It’s a fascinating operation undertaken with great care and dedication by goldsmiths.


This video shows you how gold bars are made, from the start of the process to the end. At first, crude blocks of gold are melted down at high temperatures and poured into molds. Then, after a short period of time, the newly formed gold bricks are cooled in water. To see how the whole process works, watch the short video.
