I didn’t believe it the first time I heard about it, but the stories have proven to be true and correct. Japan has been processing gold (as much as traditional gold mines) from down under their cities. “There is gold in our sewers, I couldn’t believe it!”, says a Japanese businessman who is now re-thinking his concept of “waste”.
The amount of gold extracted from the sludge at a sewer treatment facility in Japan has rivaled production levels at some of the world’s best mines.
Telegraph.co.uk reports that “Tens of thousands of pounds worth of gold has been found at the Suwa treatment facility in the past year, with more than 1,890 grammes of gold per tonne of ash recorded from incinerated sludge.
The gold yield significantly surpasses levels at Japan’s Hishikari Mine, one of the world’s leading gold mines, where 20 to 40 grammes of the precious metal are found per tonne of ore.”
How’s that for treasure! Makes me want to wonder if this can be looked at worldwide! This must be an alternative source for wealth.
