It can be consumed as an indulgence in beverages or as a culinary decoration; and used in electronic devices such as mobile phones, tablets, and televisions, to name a few, as it is a highly efficient conductor that doesn’t corrode, making it extremely reliable.

Conflict minerals, which can include gold ore, are smuggled out of countries such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and parts of Afghanistan, Columbia, and Zimbabwe, and shipped to smelters around the world for refinement.
