Re-opened Gold Road mine pours its first gold bar
The Gold Road mine poured its first bar of gold this past week since reopening in 2007, according to the Kingman Daily Miner.
Suzanne Adams story tells the century-long history of the mine that previously produced 700,000 ounces of gold. From 1998 to 2007, the mine was a tourist site.
