Unread post

Yeah, it strikes me that expense would be the biggest impediment. And the gold producers want to keep the prices up, but accessible. That's part of why they've continued to mine using methods that are clearly hazardous to the regions in which they're mining -- safer methods would drive the cost up above what most people can or would be willing to pay.
