The Foundry.

During my home stay, Khass took me to the foundry in the ger district to the north of UB, that he, his father and his three brothers are starting up.
The ger district is divided into compounds called hasha. Khass’s family are creating a metal recycling facility in their hasha
All sorts of scrap iron products from car engines to old pipes are delivered to the site by old soviet trucks
The scrap is then melted in an electric furnace and cast into an ingot.
The ingots are then hot forged into what look like cannon balls. They are in fact used in drilling operations in the mining/oil industry. Entrepreneurs in action in Mongolia!!!!!
