    WASHINGTON D.C.: Human feces contains gold and other precious metals that could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, experts say. Now the trick is how to retrieve them—a potential windfall that could also help save the planet. “The gold we found was at the level of a minimal mineral deposit,” said Kathleen Smith, of the US Geological Survey, after her team discovered metals such as platinum, silver and gold in treated waste. A recent study by another group of experts in the field found that waste from one million Americans could contain as much as $13 million worth of metals.
