    True Cost To Mine Gold - Companies Under Pressure

    Cost analysis; That's the problem with business in general. Mining requires a miner to get dirty. The time spent in the shower is non-revenue. The cost of shampoo has no return on investment to the mining operation. Laundry must be done on a regular basis. Depending on the mine, the laundry process may involve travel to a nearby laundry mat. The time spent watching clothes go around in a clothes dryer is non-revenue. There's more. - Geowizard
