Gold is a rare and precious element that has been used for thousands of years in jewelry and industry.  However, it is interesting to note that gold is not only found in mines, but also in certain living organisms, especially fungi.  In this talk, we will explore the presence of gold in fungi and its importance to our environment.

There are 15 g of gold per km3 of sea water. In a drop of 0.05 ml, we therefore find 7.5*10-16 g of gold. The molar mass of gold is 197 g/mol (6*1023 gold atoms therefore weigh 197 g), so there are 3.8*10-18 moles of gold atoms in a drop of water of sea.

 Lode gold is of course the lord of these places;  inconspicuous, it is rarely detected with the naked eye, but it is deeply rooted in popular myths of these regions;  It’s a fascination that has lasted for ages! It has gone from myth to reality since the industrial revolution, when the first engineers at the turn of the century began to believe in it by making the first discoveries of the great saga of the mining industry.

Gitologie Aurifere. Although gold is one of the rarest metals on Earth, averaging in the order of a milligram per tonne of rock only, there are places in the earth's crust where this metal is concentrated as far as  sometimes 1 kilogram per tonne in rocks and veins, thus allowing an economically profitable extraction.
