Huge reserves of gold are contained in the water of volcanic lakes

According to geologists, humanity is on the verge of another "gold rush". The current "Klondike", in their opinion, is boiling natural reservoirs heated by active volcanoes. A good example is the lakes located in the Tuapo volcanic zone in New Zealand, where geologists have discovered 18 huge natural reservoirs of water up to 3 km deep.

Chemical analysis showed that only one well in the area of ​​the Waikato geothermal station (Rotokawa formation) on the North Island of New Zealand can produce gold in the amount of $ 2.7 million per year. Several more wells in the vicinity in the area of ​​the Mokai geothermal station will be able to add up to 8 tons of silver in the amount of $ 3.6 million.

According to American and New Zealand geologists, the total reserves of "water" gold and silver in local water bodies are tens and hundreds of thousands of ounces, respectively.

However, to obtain precious metals dissolved in water, new technologies are needed that do not interfere with the operation of geothermal power plants.

The natural factory for the production of precious metals works reliably and very efficiently. Underground water reservoirs are heated to 400 ° C and dissolve the gold and silver contained in the magma. To start mining, you just need to wait until they reach their maximum concentration.
