99% of gold is hidden in the core of the earth

An Australian scientist named Bernard Ford once wrote that a large amount of gold may be stored in the core of the earth. At the same time, he also gave relevant research data, saying that the total gold reserves in the core are enough to wrap a half-meter-thick gold crust on the surface of the earth. He has studied and analyzed a meteorite that formed at the same time as the earth, so he speculated that the core of the earth contains extremely rich gold.

Bernard Ford picked up a small piece of meteorite by accident. He first verified that the meteorite was formed at the same time as the earth, and then analyzed the small piece of meteorite. He found that the iron, nickel, platinum, gold and other heavy metals in the small meteorite fragments have a relatively large proportion, and the composition of the original matter that constitutes the planet is also the same, indicating that these heavy metals are also abundant in the earth.

However, the content of these heavy metals in the crust and magma are very low. As a result, Bernard Ford speculated that the “missing” gold and platinum are likely to be deposited inside the earth. In his opinion, at least 99% of the earth’s gold reserves are gathered in the core. Of course, this is a speculation after all, and it has not yet been verified.
