The Prophet Mine website is getting a makeover starting on Tuesday March 5th at 10:00 AM.
We will update this post to keep you informed of our progress over the coming days as we get everything installed and checked out.
Things to come:
new website design (done)
– Drop us a note and let us know what you think of the new website.
easier navigation (done)
verified external links (in progress)
– Over time websites change, you’re watching that happen here. And when that happens, links that led to certain pages that get moved or removed will no longer work. So we’re taking the time to verify that all of our external links are in good working order.
– We’re also grouping links and putting in short descriptions of what the destination site is. so you don’t have to figure it out by the URL alone.
re-publishing past data (in progress)
– A lot of our archived data and information is still sought after by researchers, writers, and students. So we’re making every effort to retrieve all of those older news stories and articles.
– When we’ve got those older items re-published, they’ll be easily searchable by using the search box in the top-right of the website and by selecting the category from the tan bar near the top of the page.
– We’re also working to put together new content for our guests and visitors.
– There are some exciting things going on in the world of gold mining, and The Prophet Mine is proud to be at the forefront of these scientific discoveries,
– There’s also a lot going on in the local area. Queensland has been hit by some devastating floods recently, and we’re doing all we can to provide material for road building. We’ll be posting some information about our efforts soon.
An Australian scientist says it might be possible to “grow” gold in a laboratory. Geo-biological expert Dr Gunther Bischoff says some bacteria and fungi can make alluvial gold flakes and nuggets increase in size – and that he has proved it on Queensland alluvial gold. German-born Dr Bischoff, who is working at Macquarie University in [...]
Gold nuggets may really be the work of bacteria that can grow the precious metal in much the same way marine organisms build coral reefs. That is the theory of a Canberra scientist who has detected DNA bonded to tiny gold flakes. Frank Reith, a geo-ecologist and doctoral researcher at the Co-operative Research Centre for [...]
An Australian scientist has dug up 24-carat evidence that gold nuggets grow underground like potatoes in a farmer’s field. DNA tests showed bacteria and fungi in the soil were intimately linked with gold nuggets, backing up previous theories that they “grew” nuggets around them in the same way corals made reefs. But unlike relatively fast-growing [...]
In Australia, in the 1860s, if someone asked a miner where gold could be found, the response would often be, “Gold is found where it grows.” Who would have thought that, a century later, scientists would be beginning to prove that the old-timers may have been right? The gold miners of today are finding real [...]
The Prophet Gold Mine is proud to be part of ground breaking research into the formation of gold by bacteria. Dr. Frank Reith The University of Adelaide’s Dept. of Geology and Geophysics believes that gold can be formed by bacteria in the soil. In fact, he’s got some evidence that points to bacterioform gold. Read [...]
