$4m in sh*t in Switzerland

Not sure whether I should be suprised this article or not?

43kg of gold and 3000kg of silver found every year in Switzerland's waste water

Thanks. Just forwarded this to my OH to remind him of his previous job.
His dad owned a gold refinery in S.A., where they used to reclaim precious metals from old computers and beach sand.

Once i had a tour at Zurich water recycle center & they have collection of all the stuff they recovered from sewag water including mobile, ring & duplicate teeth. I guess most are fallen into toilet or Bathtube.

You don't know the basics of a successful economy? Money has to circle. Constantly.

Another reason to move down south:

"In some sites, like Ticino, researchers say the concentrations of gold in the sewage sludge are “sufficiently high for recovery to be potentially worthwhile.”"
