Aruba Gold Mine Ruines (Bushiribana Ruins)

Gold Mine Ruines

Aruba's Gold Mine Ruines (Bushiribana Ruins) are the remains of a gold smelter that was built of natural stone in 1825 and functioned for most of the 19th century. The ruins, mainly crumbling walls and graffiti, are interesting for their historical value, but the site has no guides or explanatory material. It's said that the smelter, in it's 90 years of operation, produced some three million pounds of gold.
