“Big History” Gold Volume Facts
I watched a fascinating episode of the History Channel’s “Big History” program recently called “Gold Fever”. They presented the following amazing gold facts and figures:
- There is enough gold at the core of the earth to cover the surface of the planet in 12’ to 13’ depth. Unfortunately, it’s 1,800 miles below our feet and at many thousands of degrees.
- They also indicate that all the gold ever mined would only stand at 80’ on the Washington Monument (Washington, D.C.). The monuments base is 55’ 1-1/2” (square). So, that’s 246,050 cubic feet or 9,113 cubic yards. So, how many ounces is that?

Two Key Principles
I focus on two principles when developing products for miners: Improving efficiency, and in turn, maximizing return.
The products offered by the Gold Lab are specifically designed to reduce the seemingly endless hours of fine gold processing. If you are the type of miner that works all season, filling up bucket after bucket of concentrates, you can save time and improve your return by streamlining this back-breaking process. We’re not talking about picking out the nuggets- those are easy. It’s collecting the fine gold that you know is worth processing but requires a smarter, more efficient means of doing it.

You know the old saying, “Spinning straw into gold?” If it were that easy to find gold, everyone could do it… but it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun. There’s nothing magical about gold prospecting, just good, old-fashioned hard work and diligence. That’s also part of the pleasure.
It isn’t just finding precious metals that makes gold recovering so addictive. It’s the connection to 150 years of history. It’s the time-honored process: dredging and high banking, crushing, reducing, classifying, and sluicing — all to find that bit of color. It’s getting your hands dirty and immersing yourself in the raw glory of nature. It’s the time spent in the beautiful outdoors, with friends and family, spinning stories and making memories.
