Couple finds gold in their tap water in Whitehall, Montana

Couple Finds Gold In Their Tap Water

WHITEHALL, MT- Striking gold is everyone's dream. Drinking it? Not so much.

Gleaming water is never a good sign. Mark Brown told NBC Montana that his wife, Sharon, was finishing the dishes when she noticed something unusual. She called her husband, and he couldn't believe what he was seeing: gold flakes in his tap water, and even in the family's toilet tank. "She had pulled the plug to let the water out and there were glistening, gleaming little flecks."


Multiple tests confirmed that, yup, gold was coming out of the Brown family's tap.

"Everything I tried to do to dispel this, I got nothing,' he said. 'And I can't explain it either. This is bizarre."

Brown's neighbor is also seeing gold in his tap water, and while finding one of the most precious metals on earth might seem exciting, it's actually raising serious questions about the town's water supply.

A public works director from Whitehall, Montana, says there is nothing to indicate any harm in the water, but Brown's not convinced.

"If we're getting heavy metals that you can see with the naked eye, what else might be in there?" he said.

With the price of bottled water these days I figured it all had gold in it.

Gold in the incoming water and $h1T in the outgoing. Good trade-off.

I used coffee filters - doubled - when filtering precipitated gold from solutions while refining it. Then micron size filters to get the rest out that passed through the coffee filters.

Now will the water bill go up 500% to reflect the added value in the water?

Look out, the FBI and the secret service will be knocking at their door to take the gold so they can give it to Obama so he can pay for the national debt that the Repubicans caused.

Sounds like a prank. For it to be transported in the water system it must be the micro thin foil type such as what is commonly marketed at tourist stops. Naturally occuring native gold at any visible grain size is not capable of transport in low flow rates of municipal water systems.

If gold was coming out of my tap, I would not be calling it bizarre. I would be calling it a miracle!
