I was reading the thread on the Wako Tower from the Illuminati Card Game and noticed from cards posted that there is a "Midas Mill" card depicting gold being harvested from sea water (card game was from 1995). I have heard of this technology over the years but it was not economical to do (yet). Does anyone know anymore about this technology? It wouldnt surprise me that they come out with this as we approach $2000 gold and drive it down to $700 again with the vastly increased supply (assuming they can do it for < $700/oz).

This is why i don't buy metals, the market can swing and currencies can be manipulated.
2nd line reserved for a witty line, if i could just think of one.

Right.....after reading a few sites its clear that there would not be...and never will be a way of extracting it without HUGE costs...and little return.
At the rate of 0.1mg per tonne....or 0.1mg/ m3...your looking at what...a few tonnes at most...and centuries of work

EDIT: Changed to mg not g per tonne.
Roughly 1.5 billion tonnes of water on earth....so total gold in ALL the oceans on the planet would be 150 tonnes. Totally not worth going to the expense to get....you would have to filter every single drop of every single ocean...which would take hundreds...if not thousands of years to achieve.

Yes, the element Au, atomic number 79, atomic weight 196.666....
You do know that gold in minute elemental form is in seawater dont you?
Much of it from erosion and run off.....Google it for the estimated $ value.

Lets just say a tonne of gold is worth $35,000,000 x 150 = $5.25 billion.
How much would it cost to do this?? $10 billion....$20 billion??? The cost of filtering billions of litres of seawater is going to far exceed what you pull from the oceans...hence its never been done.
If this were financially viable it would have been done a long time ago

you could be thinking of ormus powdered gold, if you search ormus you will find a few threads on it. im still pretty interested in the stuff for more philisophical properties than the monetary value, but this may answer your question on what gold can be extracted from seawater. ormus

Gold is so heavy it really wouldn't be found suspended in water to any great extent. It would be found in the deep crevices and at this point iot would just cost more to harvest it that the value.

In fact, gold emulsions are very much possible.

I have to agree with others here though. The cost in terms of money as well as in terms of all of the marine life you'll be killing would be horrendous in comparison to any return you'd get. It's a pointless and reckless endeavor. But then again, when has that ever stopped anyone?

Well it certainly is possible:

goldfever.com...

There will likely come a point where it does become viable. Don't think we are at quite there yet though.
