UFOs May Be Mining Volcanoes For Liquid Gold

Why are so many UFO sightings above or around active and inactive volcanoes? Theories abound. Are volcanoes portals to an underground alien world? Do UFOs refuel using geothermal power? Are aliens protecting humans from volcanic harm? A new discovery in New Zealand has spawned a new theory – UFOs may be mining volcanoes for liquid gold and other precious metals.

Is this UFO over Popocatépetl Volcano in Mexico mining for liquid gold?

According to a recent report in the journal Geothermics, geologists digging in the Taupo Volcanic Zone in New Zealand have discovered at least 18 huge underground reservoirs of what may amount to millions of dollars of molten gold, silver and other precious metals. Stuart Simmons, a geologist at the University of Utah, gave this estimate:

The total amounts of aqueous gold and silver in reservoirs could be on the order of tens of thousands of ounces of gold and hundreds of thousands of ounces of silver, or more.

The Taupo Volcanic Zone is a highly-active V-shaped chain of volcanoes, volcanic vents and geothermal fields. That activity creates intense heat and boiling acidic water which eat away at the surrounding rocks, releasing their gold and other metals into reservoirs of water. In some places, like the Champagne Pool near Lake Taupo, the deposits accumulate around the edges of the pools.

These reservoirs filled with gold are beneath Rotokawa, Molkai and other geothermal power stations, which are designed to tap geothermal energy, not liquid gold and silver. To remove these metals, new technologies must be developed to bring them out without disturbing the magma and boiling reservoirs. Why? Think fracking with earthquakes AND volcanoes.

All that's missing from this explanation is the UFO

Who might have this technology already? Aliens!

It’s long been theorized that aliens used ancient Earth civilizations to mine for gold. Perhaps they've automated the process. Why use humans and run the risk that they keep the gold for themselves when you could just suck liquid gold and silver right out of volcanoes? The metals could then be used for parts, alien jewelry or some other unknown reasons. Those UFOs seen around active volcanoes may be scouting for hot metals or possible even mining them via teleportation.

What do you think? Are UFOs removing liquid gold, silver and other precious metals from our volcanoes? If they are, what should we do about it?
