Research reveals high-pressure origin of precious metal

Quote:Gold could be deposited almost instantaneously in the Earth’s crust during earthquakes, say Australian researchers.



The researchers have found gold is formed when an earthquake widens a fluid-filled rock fracture, causing a drop in pressure, which in turn allows gold dissolved in the fluid to rapidly leach out.

Their study, reported in the journal Nature Geoscience, explains how the metal changes from a soluble state to concentrated deposits.

“[This process] may underpin the formation of up to 80 per cent of the world’s gold deposits,” they write.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Very interesting...

Quote:"successive earthquakes in the same area can cause a build up of these deposits within the fracture eventually leading to economically viable gold concentrations, say the researchers."

Remind me not to buy a house within 200 miles of fracking activity. 13.gif
