Speaking of having gold in something you drink, anyone remember this?


Goldschläger is a Swiss cinnamon schnapps (43.5% alcohol by volume or 87 proof; originally it was 53.5% alcohol or 107 proof),[1] a liqueur with very thin, yet visible flakes of gold floating in it. The actual amount of gold has been measured at approximately 13 mg in a 1-Litre bottle of Goldschläger.[2] As of November 2012 this amounts to €0.56 EUR or lower on the international gold market.[3]

Goldschläger was produced in Switzerland until the 1990s, when the brand was acquired by Diageo, which continued production of Goldschläger schnapps in Italy.[1] Since 2008 it is a brand of Global Brands[4] and produced in Switzerland again.[5] The German word Goldschläger ("gold beater"[6]) designates the profession of gold leaf makers, who beat bars of gold into micrometre-thin sheets.

Bronze from the bushing inside there pump.

i have seen this many times as pumps wear out.

i have recovered gold from mine water using wood chips and septic tank activator but it takes years to recover a ounce.

I don't think it's from the water source as the water is filtered several times and a crack in the pipe after the filtering would show more than just gold, so it's probably from some plating coming lose and will show not to be gold, also gold is heavy and should not be possible to come all the way out.

I once had silver flakes in my water which turned out to be from a pump in the apartment building i was living in.

Per the source ...

They ran multiple tests on the flakes and found one of the most precious metals on earth -- gold -- was coming out of the tap. - See more at:

They claim they tested it.

Hmmmmm I live in Ennis, much closer to Yellowstone than Whitehall is, and my water is all well water. I have yet to find gold in it
Gonna have to keep a closer eye out I guess! However, this area is well known as having gold in it, lots of gold found in the streams around here and mined in the past. Virginia City, some 10 miles or so from here, was the original capital of Montana because of the gold rush here.
Nice to see some news from this area!

a reply to: amraks

the article states that they tested it and it showed as gold. But, my question is that tehey state that it appears as shiny metal flakes. I am an avid prospector, I have been prospecting and gold panning since I was a kid, over 30 years. I have never found gold that appears shiny or metallic. Gold, even in "flake" form, is dule and malleable. It does not appear as a metallic flake and definitely is not shiny. But again, if they tested it then I guess I could be wrong.
