Bullionaire Business Opportunity

A Massey University graduate may soon be striking agricultural pay-dirt after founding the world’s first gold-farming company, Tiaki International. Chris Anderson spent 8 years at Massey developing a chemical process which causes plants to “hyperaccumulate” gold particles from the soil. When crops such as canola, corn or mustard are planted on former gold-mining land they soak up the precious substance and store it in their roots and leaves. Tiaki is now promoting its services in China and Brazil as a means of simultaneously re-greening former mine sites and creating a lucrative offshoot to sell on the open market.
