Sovereign Hill man

This man from Sovereign Hill (Australia) was melting gold in order to make a bullion.

 

Sovereign Hill is a very neat place I've been lucky to go to during my trip to Australia, as their website says:

 

"Sovereign Hill is a recreated goldfields township set over 25 hectares on a site which forms part of the richest alluvial goldfields the world has ever seen.

We offer a wide range of activities carried out by costumed staff and volunteers, many of whom portray some of the behaviours and prejudices of the 1850s!"
