If the scientists/Physicists are right and the Earth originated from the Big Bang 4.5 billion years ago why couldn't have carried it's own array of elements, including AU, as it cooled and became the earth we live on today? Just a wild-assed guess.

It could not have as it was too hot and had expanded too much for dense heavy elements to form.  That’s why the favored theory right now, and even detected in recent observations, are that collisions of extremely dense neutron stars formed the heavy elements.

Pondering this while one is wearing or holding a piece of gold makes it seem so much more amazing that it even exists...

Well I'll renew this topic with this info. I read this in some book a while back and now I  can't  remember what book  it was  but the author's theory stuck in my mind . His explanation was that all  big copper mines and other big metallic and mineral sources were  the remains of ancient  spacecraft crashes from very deep space. That they leached out after billions of years of earthquakes and volcanoes and all of earth's changes.No crazier than many theories I have read . Knowledge is out there but so much of it is disregarded by the naysayers , if it don't fit the popular ideals  at the time then dismiss it.:reading:

I'd have to agree with you Slim.

Hard to believe that was 9 years ago already. I remember hearing a double sonic boom blast when it came in.

Did you find any meteorites yourself?

We only heard the fragment hitting each other overhead as it was breaking apart as it came down around us. Literally falling on our heads. The weird thing is the sound worked backwards from the direction of the fall. The wife saw the smoke, I didn't and her brother saw it from his location down by Mariposa. The wife only owned her 8.5 for a just over an hour or so before Ruben purchased it from her. 

Now Memorial Day weekend, we kicked ass and found a total of 8 fragments, and a few weekends later we finished walking the area and found the last 1 grammer.

I took off to go look for pieces but I ended up in the wrong location around South Tahoe and then I left there and went to Northern Nevada for the first time.  About 3 days later I went to the park and there were people then running all over the place with metal detectors.

But that is not why I'm here.  I thought this thread was about 'Where Did Gold Come From' and I have a story about a guy who wrote a book about the source in Western Australia.  This 'where it came from' has to do with being able to have a profitable mine so you need to know where it is.  This guy found it when others missed it it seems.

 You're a lucky guy Rick!  Myself and friends were all over the place for some days and nothing to show. Just saw some crumbs guys were picking up in the parking lot over by the mill. Fun times anyway!

Obviously, gold is an element that exists in many places in our universe and beyond. The earth had to have some when it was formed and my guess is that at least some came later as the earth was bombarded by countless projectiles of varying size and shape.  
My experience and knowledge is very limited but one crystalline nugget I found not far from Sulfur, Nevada made me think that gold was somehow chemically leached out of low grade ore or soil only to reform as, well, see the nugget photo below. 
Reading this article added to my intrigue...

Iridium in undersea crater confirms asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs

"A separate study of the cores done in 2019 reveals that the crater rock has been depleted of sulphur when compared to surrounding limestone. This suggests that the impact blew large amounts of sulphur into the air, where it would have contributed to the cooling and then fallen as acid rain – making the situation on the ground even worse."
