Prestea Gold Mines 40km further north of Tarkwais the
Prestea Mine. Unlike the Tarkwa Mines, Prestea has two unique departments
you will enjoy seeing: the Assay Department where the gold is carefully
evaluated for purity, and the Roaster Department where the gold is smelted
in small furnaces and the molten liquid is poured into moulds to make
gold bars. If you are interested in recreation, the Prestea Goldmines
have two lighted tennis courts and a challenging 10-hole golf course.
A canteen, with a panoramic view of the area, serves good Continental
and Ghanaian cuisine.
