Humanity seems to have a timeless fascination with gold. From its use in jewelry by ancient civilizations to its incorporation into modern technologies such as satellites and telescopes, gold remains a valuable asset in many parts of society.
Mined globally, gold is recognizable to almost anyone on the planet and humanity has gone to great lengths to acquire and control the relatively small amounts available to us. The desire for gold, often referred to as "gold fever," is driven by our almost primal desire to mine, acquire, and hoard the precious metal. The attraction to gold originally stemmed from its visual appeal, but once humanity understood the concepts of value, rarity, and durability, gold was quickly elevated to a monetary metal.
Throughout history, people have been drawn to gold and have sought it out in various ways, including mining, trading, and exploration. It is not surprising that something of such value has often been the cause of conflict, as wars have been fought over access to gold fields.
There is no doubt in our minds that the appeal of gold is as strong today as it was in ancient civilizations. It is a pleasure for us to be able to deal in such a highly prized commodity with our customers.
