Gold Flush In Sewers?
Updated : Feb 23, 2009
Ireland’s sewers could be packed with gold. According to Dublin-based mining engineer Michael Sullivan, sewage may actually contain traces of gold. Apparently, we are literally flushing millions worth of the precious metal down the toilet.
One Japanese sewage company has already revealed that it has recorded higher gold yields from the sludge than can be found at some of the world's best mines.
Scientists also speculate that factories involved in producing computer circuit boards, where gold is used, could be contaminating the food chain.
