It is the 5th most abundant element on Earth – though it settles down to the Earth's core. We only know about it, as the river of water flowing around the Earth's mantel dissolves heavy metals – included gold.
As the water rises to the low pressure surface, the metals drop out of suspension – and miner go and chip it out. There is 455 million tonnes of gold in the Earth's core. Enough to cover the Earth to a depth of 2 feet – and extinguish all life on Earth.
So we use ground sonar, to locate a magma pocket 34m below the surface. We has a rock pocket partially filled with high pressure, high temperature water. 280OC, 8 atmospheres – where gold and platinum are soluble in high pressure and temperature water.
We drill down to get at the water. And get stream, of hot, super heated water. We vent the pressure to 6 atmospheres, and the metal dust falls out of solution.
We use a Dyson dry cleaner, double helical flow inverter to separate out the dust. 40% gold – we sell on to turn into ingots. Just so much gold.
Just 1 geothermal power plant can double the amount of gold man has. 50,000 plants and gold has ceased to have value. And I have been blogging about this for 3 years.
We now pass the clean steam, through a turbine – or thermoelectric generator. We get at 40MW or carbon and nitrogen 0 power. No Fossil Fuels burn. No hyper toxic uranium nuclear power.
No oil, coal or gas burn. No large power firms. Each house only wants 8kW of power. So we power 500 houses.
