That factory simulates to have mini-smelters of gold ores, and has 2 trucks inside, which carries gold ores and gold blocks, and a lava flow seems the smelt gold going to a ingot mold
I like this, it is a relatively good representation of how a real smelter is laid out, raw materials in at the furnace/chimney end, finished product out at the far end. I like the slag heaps under the furnaces, this means that you are aware that gold ore contains other elements, (silicon, sulfur, iron etc.) which must leave the plant too as well as the wanted gold.
My older version of Minecraft did not render the coloured concrete blocks of which much of this structure is composed, (they rendered as air in my game, but appeared as pink in MC Edit) so it was almost like a ruin in my game, but enough of it was there to see how it worked and was was intended.
One possible addition you could put is is a travelling crane, ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overhead_crane ) that would make it feel even more industrial!
