Bacteria that can form gold nuggets

Bacteria that can form gold nuggets

Researchers have found that a bacterial species stimulates the formation of gold particles in its environment as a way to survive in solutions containing toxic gold ions. The bacterium, Delftia acidovarans, secretes a compound dubbed delftibactin that precipitates gold ions, causing them to clump into nuggets.

Recently read this new research from the Internet. Holy Molly!! So You are telling me that there is a bacteria that can actually make gold??!!** Running and grabbing all of Petri Dishes I can find*

Or I can eat them off and poop out Gold nuggets, that would be epic!
