Gold as a Conductor in Electronics

Gold is durable to the point of virtual indestructibility, highly malleable, and usually found in nature in a comparatively pure form. It does not corrode or tarnish, and it is an excellent conductor of electricity.

Gold Communicates

The gold we mine is used in memory chips found in phones and in many places in the standard desktop or laptop computer. In fact, every time you type an e-mail on your computer, gold circuits relay the keyboard data to the microprocessor.
