FREE gold and power

This is best done by a farmer or land owner. If a village has common land, with a stream or river running through it, that will do.
We need ground sonar – so the best idea is if we get a company involved with sonar and drilling equipment. They take their money out of the free power we generate, and the 2% to cover plant maintenance/renewal. They the rest of the power money goes towards the village/ land owner.
We should fins that the river of geothermal water tracks over ground rivers. And all land is forced up by steam fill mantel pockets.
We drill down to enter the water chamber from below: we may choose to use a local hill – as the ground will sink by 2cm a century.
So we get at water at 8 atmospheres, and 178oC. This super heated water has gold, silver, platinum, copper, lead, arsenic... in. So we vent the gas to 6 atmospheres, and it boils, dropping to 168oC.
We pass through a Dyson double helix, and collect the heavy metal power. We sell to a local metals agent – who will collect and pay by metal content, and price. 40% of the metal dust will be gold!
This will be worth more than the power we produce. We get 120MW of carbon 0 power: we pass the steam through a small turbine, or a commercially source thermoelectric generator. Each house only needs 8kW.
So we power 196 houses. Off free carbon 0 power. The national grid pays up 3,165 UK pounds per kW year. So get get 600,000 UK pounds. Money we receive – and do not pay the power companies.
And the gold pays us 720,000 UK pounds today. So each farmer, land owner of village is about to get very rich. Power with no CO2, or hyper-toxic radioactive waste.

I gave this idea to my PhD supervisor at Sheffield University 2000.  It is a first year rneginering practical, to build the plant and get it working, over a university term.

Too much gold
The Earth's core holds 455 million tonnes of gold. Man has only mined 20,000 tonnes – most recently. Gold is easy to get at.
We need some ground sonar, yo locate a magma pocket 34 meters down. Or we just locate the river of water circling the Earth. Gold and other heavy metal are soluble below 34 meters.
So as the water finds its way up to a warm spring, the gold is left behind. But it is expensive to mine it. Dangerous and expensive.
What we do is invest the money in a bore hole – 34m is almost trivial. And we get up a stream of superheated water with heavy metals in.
We give it a slight vent, and pass it through a Dyson dry cleaner – more rugged than for cleaning. We extract the metal power from the steam – we then use to generate carbon 0, no toxic power. Carbon 0 is that easy!
The power is worth as much as the gold. And 40% of the metal dust is gold. We sell on to metals companies, to turn into pure metal ingots. Near unlimited gold and platinum. Platinum has uses, catalysing Molecular Nuclear Fusion. Gold does not.
We can double the amount of gold in man's possession in 2 years. And we can stop the folly of burning over priced Fossil Fuels. Or doing hyper toxic uranium nuclear power.
Uranium power is so expensive, every power plant needs 100 billion of annual insurance cover. None has it! All nuclear power highly illegal.
