the gold refinery

  

Even after the tunnels, the safety hazards aren't over. That bowl on the lower right corner's full of mercury. No idea what mercury has to do with gold processing, but it does. and they use it openly, and apparently dump it in the ground after. That's gonna be trouble.

 

This was the first spot I found, just a makeshift gold processing shop on the drive up to someone's house.
