Which brings us back to seismically active Anatolia where the rivers were full of gold dust. The land of Midas and Croesus.
But seismically active by what process?
Pressure changes cause precious metal to deposit each time the crust moves.
Same thing from B.C.
Again, their explanation is an assumption, and I find the idea of a gold laced fluid scientifically very weak. All gold is produced by a discharge within the dielectric medium, the effect here being, in my model, the formation of the quartz occurring almost simultaneously with that of the gold, but the quartz first. I see in the local quarry the quartz veins in the basalt looking like 3-D lightning, which is what it was. The gold part of the process requires a discharge of particular nature for the gold to be produced. Lots of current I'm thinking. Many silver deposits in Bolivia have obvious dendritic characteristics, same process, different discharge characteristics. Silver is also found with quartz, as is copper. Copper can also be found in a dendritic form, so electricity, IMO, is the driver of the process.
In this paper, some ore bodies can be described as shoots, and were described as growing like trees. All the effects noted could be the result of discharges within the rock they are found in, and the quartz is there too. What was left after processing the ore?
"The gray sandy material proves to consist largely of perfectly formed crystals of quartz, averaging 0.1 millimeter in diameter; doubly terminated crystals
The quartz crystals are the key to the production of the sought after metals, by E/M processes.

What reveals itself to me ceases to be mysterious for me alone: if I unveil it to anyone else, he hears mere words which betray the living sense: Profanation, but never revelation.
