What I'm wondering is, is it at all possible that a big chunk of the island is going to break off and slide into the sea? Because that's kinda what it's looking like.

It's not very likely. The Hawaiian volcanoes aren't the type of volcanoes to violently explode because a lot of pressure doesn't get built up that's why you see the magma just slowly oozing.
Mega tsunamis come from vast quantities of land collapsing into the ocean at all at once, this is more lots of magma slowly oozing into the ocean.
Other areas that may have high background concentrations of gold include large igneous provinces — vast accumulations of igneous, or volcanically produced, rocks in the Earth's crust — such as the East African Rift, the Deccan Traps in central India, and the Siberian Traps in northern Russia. The Hawaiian Islands, which were formed over a mantle hotspot and are composed of igneous rocks, also are likely to have higher concentrations of gold and other rare metals, Webber said.
