The Fifth Mine had the biggest reserve of gold.  It was repaired and re-decorated for tourists to go visiting.  Outside the Museum of Gold is a statue of Uncle Golden who carried a lantern which was acetylene lamp.  It would produce acetylene when mixing with water.  Light it and then it would start to burn.  It could be used as lights and also a tool to test if there was fresh air in the tunnel so it was also called Safety Lantern.
