We have to remove the gold, platinum and silver before the water that runs over the earth’s mantle can be used to generate free electricity.
The water from the seas and Rivers of the earth percolates down until it meets the earth’s core. There it forms the mantel! And the earth spins around this water, which is at 250° C and 8.4 atmospheres. Just liquid-because of a higher pressure.
In places this metal heavy water collects in underground mantle pockets are only 10 metres below the surface. At this depth of the metals are not yet started precipitating out-to form ore deposits.
This water forms the source of every river on earth. Any care is some gold dust with it! Which is why panning for gold works.
We use ground sonar, to tracking the underground river source back, until we find a liquid filled mantle pockets at least 10 meters below the surface of the earth. We drill down for this water.
It goes up to the surface, we of metal dust in it! Here the gold is a pollutant we would rather was not here. No big problem! We pass it through a ruggedized Dyson dry cleaner, and this extracts all the heavy metal powder.
Which we sell on to process into ingots. 40% gold! Within two years will end up varying it in disused mine workings-as it will have no value or use!
Mankind has extracted 0.5% other goals from the deep, through his mining and gold panning. We can double Lewis in only two years! There are already 12,000 trial geothermal mining plants around the world-which is why the price of gold is crashing!
It will never increase ever again. We are outstripping the demand for gold by a factor of 10,000. I am not interested! An induces in the power.
We pass the clean steam through a steam turbine, and generate electricity. We use a tiny fraction to drive a Carnot heat pump. To condense the steam into liquid water, and return 85% of the system heat to the inlet steam.
The more steam we extract, the more gold we get! But I prefer steam have 1000° C rather than 240 to generate electricity.
Free electricity and gold! We have no fossil fuel bound. We produce no carbon dioxide. And definitely no hyper toxic nuclear fission from uranium: the technology of hades.
I great grandchildren27 will still be paying for the folly of the 20th century allowing nuclear fission to produce electricity. And toxic waste which will remain lethal for 100,000 years. The cost of handling the radioactive waste will be 200 times the cost of generating electricity by conventional power.
But here we use earth power. Free at source. We gold and platinum in it’s superheated water!
