New infographic showcases the importance of gold

Posted on October 11, 2013 by Minerals Make Life

A new infographic from Physical Gold, a leading gold dealer in the United Kingdom, outlines the contributions of gold to modern life. The infographic details the uses of gold in space travel, smartphones and even dentistry.

From the fastest technology to the smallest tooth filling, gold is a vital resource. Without gold, our computers could not conduct electricity as quickly, our astronauts would not have adequate protection from harmful radiation and our teeth would not have the durable crowns and fillings they need.

Similarly, minerals of all kinds serve as the building blocks of innovation. For more information about how minerals are used in everyday life, check out our online toolkit.
