“…even 500 trees growing over a gold deposit would only yield enough gold for a wedding ring.”

“…even 500 trees growing over a gold deposit would only yield enough gold for a wedding ring.”

Before you read this post, remember the words of Martin Luther King who said –

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold & silver.”

The following is some truly fascinating research by Perth CSIRO Geoscientists who have found gold particles in the leaves of shrubs & trees.

“CSIRO researchers believe the trees, sitting on top of gold deposits buried deep underground, suck up the gold in their search for moisture during times of drought.  The particular trees that we did the research on appear to be bringing up gold from a remarkable 30 metres depth, which is about the equivalent of a 10-storey building.”

It is expected that this finding will have a positive impact on mining surveys, as gold deposits may be found by testing the leaves of shrubs & trees, reducing the need for drilling.   So money really does grow on trees.    See – http://ab.co/1cU3ie2
