A New “Green” Gold Mining Era On The Way

Who would have thought that gold mining could potentially become “Green” one day? No one ever thought it could be possible, however, researchers in australia have discovered a new greener way to find gold before operating.

Dr Lintern and his team have discovered gold residue inside the leaves, twigs and bark of eucalyptus trees Down Under, by using the AUstralian Synchrotron X-ray machine on the trees, he was able to discover micro particles of gold in the plants.
He states: “We believe that the trees are acting like a hydraulic pump. They are bringing life-giving water from their roots, and in so doing, they are taking smaller dissolved gold particles up through the vascular system into the foliage.”

Why is this remarkable? How significant is this discovery? Very, here is why; mining these gold tree will never happen, as it would take about 500 trees to make a single ring, however, the big discovery will most certainly be refined and used in the gold mining industry to save millions of dollars in exploration costs and save mother earth from looking like Swiss cheese, miners of the future will be able to test the tree leaves to find out of the soil contains gold at a fraction of the cost.
