    What's amazing about Gold Strike Mine is the gold they are recovering is gold dust but the entire area is nothing but gold dust.

    #1 | GRASBERG | 106,231,000 Oz Gold
    Location: Papua, INDONESIA
    At #1, Grasberg is the granddaddy of them all containing a whopping 100Moz+ of gold. The massive mine is owned by Freeport McMoRan but includes a sizeable sharing agreement with miner Rio Tinto. The site is located in the mountains at an altitude of 4,300 meters or 14,000 feet. In truth, Grasberg produces far more copper, by value, than gold and thus represents one of the world’s largest copper and gold mines. The operations consist of both open pit and underground mines, and have been in operation since the 1980's and the pit forms an enormous mile wide crater.

    So how are we defining worlds largest? gold produced, size of mine, combined metals recovered, total sales, most employees, etc. Kinda a moot point... but given the choice of which mine I would want to work at would be Gold Strike due to their safety record and wages paid... Gold Strike at its widest is over 2.15 miles across and sits in the 5500 ft. elevation. Additionally there is two open pit mines and underground mines.
