    KO — Despite winning more than $12.5 million at a casino, a Nevada miner plans to keep digging for gold.

    Efren Aguirre tells the Elko Daily Free Press that he loves his job as rock breaker operator in a gold mine and doesn't intend to quit. The 64-year-old resident of Elko hit the jackpot on a slot machine last week.

    Aguirre says he came to the U.S. from Mexico for "more money," but this wasn't what he expected.

    He has worked at Newmont Mining Corp.'s Leeville mine for 16 years. He says he decided to go to the casino after a shift on March 22.

    Aguirre says he and his wife of 44 years bought their dream house in Elko and will put away most of the remaining money for a rainy day.

    I suppose you'd have to LOVE your job to continue working after winning that much money, right?

    I would quit my job if I won that kind of money, but I would continue to "run" NDF because I LOVE all of you!! :)
