Where Does All Earth's Gold Come From?


www.bristol.ac.uk

Dr Willbold continued: "Our work shows that most of the precious metals on which our economies and many key industrial processes are based have been added to our planet by lucky coincidence when the Earth was hit by about 20 billion billion tonnes of asteroidal material."

I personally find this information to be very interesting.
for me it only substantiates my opinion even further that there is still so much we do not truly know about our world,ourselves and where exactly we came from (I know this does not have anything to do with human origins)

That will only continue to increase as we intuitively invent a means of space travel other than what is presently known and being used.(if not already created unbeknownst to us)
the same goes for our ability to observe space via telescopes.

It seems we find out something new & wonderful every day.
I look forward to your thoughts & opinions.

Supernovas

Gold is created when a large enough star explodes in a supernova.

Hmm...I find the really strange thing about gold is:
en.wikipedia.org...

Like all elements with atomic numbers larger than iron, gold is thought to have been formed from a supernova nucleosynthesis process.


All this stuff is only created in supernova's! That's pretty amazing.

same place our water came from asteroids and comets.

lucky coincidence

WOW,

Yeah

That is right Christian live on blind faith.

Ha.

A very interesting find, yet we already knew that most of our metal deposits come from the asteroids that plummeted to earth whilst cooling, but as these metals run out, we're going to have to get more. Currently, there is plenty of asteroids to share out and mine, i mean look at what it's worth.


At 1997 prices, a relatively small metallic asteroid with a diameter of 1.6 km (1 mile) contains more than 20 trillion US dollars worth of industrial and precious metals

Or how much there is!



In 2004, the world production of iron ore exceeded a billion metric tons.[4] In comparison, a comparatively small M-type asteroid with a mean diameter of 1 km could contain more than two billion metric tons of iron-nickel ore,[5] or two to three times the annual production for 2004. The asteroid 16 Psyche is believed to contain 1.7×1019 kg of nickel-iron, which could supply the 2004 world production requirement for several million years.


The ability to mine just a few of these asteroids would change humanity forever, and thus many are looking for solutions, as am I. It's a crazy world we live in, yet nothing compared to space.

Well they just discovered a planet made of diamond so a big ball of a certain type of mineral isnt that far out if you ask me.

what is with our fascination with gold? what gives it any worth at all??

from what I've read and understand, metals like gold are created when a star dies, and explodes itself into space... (that is a vastly simplified explanation tho.)

There is gold in every state in the US and every country of the world.
One cubic mile of seawater contains about 50 pounds of gold.
Its just that in many places its not concentrated enough to mine.

In Calif less then 1/10 of 1 percent that can be mined has been.

That leaves 99.9% of the gold that can be mined still in the ground for someone to find. If you can find a way to beat the tree huggers laws and regulations and mine it. good luck.

rarity..supply and demand and now and also in ancient times....techonolgy, Gold is an excellent conductor, all electronics should contain gold.

Gold is created by nuclear processes in the cores of very large stars. They need to be large to run the nuclear process far enough to generate such a heavy element.

When these stars run out of energy to continue the nuclear process, they rapidly collapse under gravity. If the star has sufficient mass, this collapse can generate enough compressional heat to fire yet another stage of nuclear process deep inside it which, in an instant, fires much of the collapsed matter back out into space - i.e: the star goes nova and blows off its outer layers.

These outer layers of Star stuff, sprayed out across space, form the matter (except for, perhaps Hydrogen, which is the lightest element in atomic mass) that all other non-stellar objects are made from.

As far as we know, these nuclear processes are the only ones that can transmute lighter elements into heavier ones.

The conclusion is that nearly every element on Earth was generated in a star some time in the past (not just Gold). The amount of Gold that we have found in the crust of the Earth (considering its high atomic mass) would tend to indicate that its production is fairly copious, which argues against the idea that ancient aliens had to come to Earth to get Gold. They could have found it in a lot of places.

Gold is universal, it is cherished and loved, it is precious and coveted. But worth more than gold is diamonds, something we know without question originates here on earth, coming from a comet or asteroid or begat from Earth itself, the rarity of the material determines it's worth, very simply.

Thanks for the replies and for every ones thoughts on the subject!

Yes, I am aware of how gold is pretty much created via supernovae,thank you for that information and that reminds me of another article I was previously reading about slow ticking "time bombs" known as white dwarfs that could be spread throughout the solar system! Very interesting stuff indeed.


New research shows that some old stars might be held up by their rapid spins, and when they slow down, they explode as supernovae. Thousands of these "time bombs" could be scattered throughout our Galaxy.


here is a link to the article if anyone is interested,quite a nice read if you ask me-

Gathering it up for our Annunaki masters of course!

According to some channelers and/or contactee, there seems to be some sort of acknowledgment or agreement that crystals (that were planted/placed within the core) are responsible for manufacturing/growing/creating gold.

I say, why not? It's a good of an explanation than any text book.

Gold holds unique properties. Alchemy is based on it.
The Annunaki's needs were reported to be based on that.
Our entire monetary system USED TO BE based on it.

It's not that gold is the rarest mineral (a meteorite is rarer). What makes it an expensive commodity (in my opinion is) the secret metaphysical and healing powers contained within.

Gold is more mysterious than Stonehenge, Great Giza Pyramid, Easter Island and Machu Picchu put together.

THE JOURNEY TO EARTH the olden times For nine counted periods Alalu was king on Nibiru. In the ninth Shar, Anu gave battle to Alalu. To hand-to-hand combat, with bodies naked, Alalu he challenged. Let the winner be king, Anu said.They grappled with each other in the public square; door post trembled and walls shook. Alalu bent his knee; to the ground he fell on his chest. Alalu in combat was defeated; by acclaim Anu was hailed as king. Anu to the palace was escorted; Alalu to the palace did not return. From the crowds he stealthily escaped; of dieing like Lahma he was fearful. Unbeknownst to others, to the place of the celestial chariots he hurriedly went. Into a missile-throwing chariot Alalu climbed; its hatch behind him he closed. The forepart chamber he entered; the commander's seat he occupied. That-Which-Shows-the-Way he lit up, with bluish aura the chamber filling. The Fire Stones he stirred up; their hum like music was enthralling. The chariot's Great Cracker he enlivened; a reddish brilliance it was casting. Unbeknownst to others, in the celestial boat Alalu from Nibiru escaped. To snow-hued Earth Alalu set his course; by a secret from the Beginning he chose. Alalu journeys to Earth the rumored planet of gold, on the way describing the beauty and colors of the planets he passes. He blasts through with missiles the Asteriod belt called the Hammered Bracelet, like a guardian of the inner solar system described. Landed abruptly he puts on an Eagles helmet and fish suit. Later tests the air and still waters and is happy its compatible. He beams the news back to Nibiru his find, to save their atmosphere and try to regain the throne.
