Platinum Cannon Shipwreck
From centuries before the reign of Cleopatra, the luster of gold has mesmerized mankind. Kings and rulers alike summoned their magicians and commissioned physicians to partake in the studies of alchemy. For even in Fourth Century China, alchemy was elevated to a medical science because the magical concoction of "Drinkable Gold" was considered the elixir of eternal life.
During the early Renaissance, most European monarchs had at least one or two alleged gold makers on their payrolls with exclusive licenses for production of noble metals. With the issuance of a commission, the rulers made laws declaring it illegal for others to practice this mystical art. Even Isaac Newton dabbled in alchemy, as recorded in his journals, and conducted several laboratory experiments to test its applicability.
As modern day science evolved, starting in the middle of the 19th Century, it was assumed as an absolute fact that one could not bring about the change of one element to another without energies stupendously greater than that of any chemical reaction. Thus, the laws of scientific absolutes are once again being challenged.
This book is not about gold, but the transmutation of elements. It is for the hobbyist, the high school chemistry buff, the seekers of knowledge, and whoever wishes to gain an understanding of how the universal formation of elements occurred. You will find simple procedures, where, with basic equipment, one can bring about by nuclear change the transmutation of one element to another.
As I will go into much greater detail later, the cause of change from one element to another only occurs through a nuclear reaction. The discovery I made did nothing to change the universal laws of science. I only defined a new set of conditions under which a nuclear reaction can occur.
In this book, you will learn different procedures on how one synthetically produces gold from a portion of mercury. The reason I chose gold as the primary metal is, for years, gold has become the status symbol of wealth. It's malleable and ductile conditioning makes for beautiful jewelry and artifacts. Gold is produced today from mining. South Africa is producing two-thirds of the world's supply. South Dakota and Nevada are the only two states in the U.S. which are producing commercial quantities. Other countries involved in gold production include Canada, Russia, Brazil and countries within Southeast Asia.
have little comprehension of the massive work that is required to make
an ounce of gold. For example, an average mining company must process
upwards of twenty tons of mineralized ore to produce one troy ounce
(31.103 grams) of gold. When the efficiency of the process covered in
this text is maximized, it will require the conversion of less than
a pound of mercury to produce an ounce of gold and platinum! Tests of
the "Champion Process" within the last year have shown the
equivalence of up to 32 troy ounces of gold production from one ton
of synthesized minerals. This does not take into consideration the platinum
and other metals produced in the same operation!
