How much gold would it take ?


Recommended Posts

By the end of the year i want to smelt a gold bar the size of a stick of butter. Anybody have a guess as to how many ounces of gold it would take. It's a pretty lofty goal ( unattainable ) but i always set high goals and standards. I am guessing probably 2 pounds or so. Thanks in advance guys.

Here is a hint Ore.

ONE CUBIC FOOT OF GOLD WOULD WEIGH APPROX 14 HUNDRED POUNDS OR 16,800 TROY OUNCES

So how many sticks of butter would fit into one cubic foot of gold? hehe!

Well, lets see how this works out . A 1/4 lb stick measures 3.25 x 1.5 x 1.6 = 7.8 cu. inches convert to cu. centimeters 127.819 x 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter = 2466.9067 grams or 79.312 tr.ounce or 5.438 A. pounds . (79.312 x $1562.60 = $123932.93)

An expensive stick of butter!

Err on the side a caution when going to fire sites as mine reflared up,they closed the road and slept in my truck waiting to get out with only water and tequila for rations--my snake bite kit as it were. Had a great time with the firline folks as we got bloody well plastered that night-John
