There Are Millions Of Tonnes of Gold in Seawater, But...

The oceans are filled with gold, just floating out there for the taking! The trouble is figuring out how to extract the precious metal. For over a century, dreamers, con artists, mad men, and well-intentioned inventors have been trying to find a way to kickstart an oceanic gold rush. So far, the search for all those riches has proved fruitless. But that doesn’t mean people aren’t still trying.
According to the National Ocean Service, our oceans hold some 20 million pounds of gold, suspended in normal seawater. But this gold is spread throughout the normal mineral content of seawater to the tune of “parts per trillion.” As the NOAA puts it, “Each liter of seawater contains, on average, about 13 billionths of a gram of gold.” There are also gold deposits within the seafloor, but profitably mining them is far beyond our current abilities.


A mission in futility

If were to find a way to extract, it would cause the market value of gold to plunge

The only reason gold should be valuable is because of its use in manufacture of electronics. I’ve never understood why people are attracted to shiny things. Kwani wao ni kama wadudu?

Gold is also an alternative currency.

There was a time salt was so rare, it was used as currency

There are asteroids and Meteorites that are purely Gold or platinum infact one massive platinum Asteroid flew by Earth a few years ago. The platinum-rich asteroid 1km by 0.45km passed Earth at a distance of about 2 million Kilometres. The Asteroid contained platinum worth $5 trillion and other rare metals left mining companies salivating at the prospect of extracting such.

Planet 55 Cancri e discovered in 2004 was believed to be the first known planet to consist largely of diamond, due in part to the high carbon-to-oxygen ratio of its host star, is estimated to be worth $26.9 nonillion (26.9 plus 30 zeros) which makes the Diamond Planet worth 384 quadrillion times as much as planet Earth’s GDP ($70 trillion), according to Forbes .Nikipata space shuttle na ngataa ya kutosha, mimi huyo naandika all 2,153 birrionaires kazi ya kunihesabia pesa:D:D:D

Is it the same planet that rains diamonds?

aaaiiii,sheit now i need to space shuttles:D:D:D:D
scientists""believe " sartun jupiter and probably neptune,due to their high carbon density and pressure…there’s probably diamond rain

Amka bro!!! Kumekucha

Can you imagine how much gold sank into the sea back in the days when the wooden ships sank? Bars of gold bana…

how many ships do you know of?

Lemmi count I’ll let you know

The cost is so high though… Pia oceans have uranium thats the next big thing. There are studies that started like 30 years ago that try to extract uranium from the ocean yet hawajapata the best cost effective method. Unatumia billions kupata kitu kidogo sana, bado hatujafika hapo in tech.

yet “we” went to the moon over 50 years ago?
