Mining for Gardinium Gold by SpinningAngel

Currently unavailable for purchase

The surface of Planet Ecosus 3 is probably the most inhospitable place in the known Universe.

Pity the miners in the industrial facility here – working in extreme temperatures of between 700 to 1300oC – the working environment is almost unbearable even in their refrigerated protective suits.

Extraction of Gardinium Gold – a substance only found within the molten lava pools here – is the well worth the enormous risks as it is the second most valuable commodity currently in existence.
