Gold in modern medicine

Gold is not only popular as an investment or as jewellery. It is also an effective medicine

A long time ago, the philosopher and physician Paracelsus used the precious metal to heal. Today, for example, medicinal plants are cultivated which grow in soil enriched with metals such as gold and are used as starting materials for certain drugs.

Traditional Chinese medicine has been attributing healing effects to gold for around 4,500 years. Today, the precious metal is tested in the form of nanoparticles for treatment and diagnostics. Gold is already being used for bacterial infections, rapid tests to detect pregnancies or HIV diseases. Tests for the rapid detection of certain types of cancer are being researched intensively.

And in Switzerland, gold nanoparticles are used to alter viruses in the human body in such a way that they can no longer cause any damage. Demand for these gold nanoparticles is also expected to rise sharply in the coming years. Even if this sector will only provide a small part of the demand for gold, these applications will increasingly bring the precious metal into people's focus and possibly also contribute to more investment.

Gold companies such as White Gold or Maple Gold Mines offer an interesting investment opportunity. White Gold - - works in its vast area of Canada in the Yukon (almost 390,000 hectares), which covers almost 40 percent of the entire white gold district. Drilling results brought excellent values of nearly seven grams of gold per tonne of rock on the White Gold property. Gold resources of around 961,000 ounces of gold have already been identified there.

Maple Gold Mines - - also recently reported promising drilling results from its Douay Gold Project (377 square kilometers) located in northern Quebec. Important areas were expanded and new gold zones were discovered.
