G'day Explorer.

One metric ton of gold will be around 14.6 inches cubed or approx 37.28 cubed cm,approx $45,010,000 at 1400/oz.

Cheers kon61.

I've actually fantasised as to how I would remove such a lump from a hole and then somehow get it into my vehicle. LOL I bet I'm not the only one either...

G'day Byteman.

I wouldn't worry to much about how to remove a ton lump of gold,out of the hole i found it in,as much as i would worry about who else might be staring down at the hole beside me.

Cheers kon61.

I believe a 12" cube of solid gold weighs just on Half a Ton.

Ohh JW!!! you are full of it! lol Firstly the truck tyres haven't burst. Secondly you should have used Taubmans gold paint instead of Dulux.
Thirdly, I can see by the grass that the truck hasn't moved for 14 years cause that is when the WOF expired. Good try but!! Here is some of mine....

1 metric tonne of gold

Post  Tunnel Rat on Thu Dec 23, 2010 2:17 pm

1 cubic foot of gold is 1206lbs in the old scale or 548.18kgs metric. I guess that younger people dont know much about the Imperial system,having learnt metric at school. Multiples of ten,sweet. Anyway 2240Ibs to theton, 1000kgs to the tonne (2200Ibs).

G'day Malcom, You are correct it is an Otago rugby union footy jersey. Not Lugget but is in Central Otago some where. Yes central is a paradise......mind you so is Whangamata where I am living at present which is about to become a mini Auckland as all the Jafa's swamp our coastal play ground over xmas & the new year. It is only for a few weeks but, then back to normality. What ever normal is. Laughing Laughing
Hope you have a great xmas too.

Happy hunting

Ludgate or Luggate Malcolm? If it is between Clyde and Wanaka it would be Luggate. Been there a time or two. Had a Bro in law that drove for the transport company for many years. Another was a milkman who worked Wanaka to Luggate. Small world.

Tunnel rat no-one mentioned a cubic foot of gold read the Forum header again mate. I have been told a extra 2 or 3 inches make all the difference in the world to some woman. Especially when it comes to gold. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

1 cubic inch of water weighs 0.016387064 kg

1 cubic inch of gold weighs 0.31659 kg

therfore 14.16 inches cubed is 2839.1592 cubic inches

Therfore 2839.1592 x 0.31659 kg = 898.84941 kg x 2.20lb per kilo = 1977.4687 lb =0.88279 ton when 2240lb per ton.

Therefore 1 cubic ton of gold will be 14.76 inches cubed at standard room temp of 21 degrees C.
