Natural hydrogen

Substantial investment laying the foundation for hydrogen use

The global demand for hydrogen is accelerating as the world rapidly transitions to a decarbonised economy.

Hydrogen has the potential to be the fuel of the future – it’s light, storable, energy-dense, and can be developed to provide clean energy.

Hydrogen could play a key role in decarbonising our essential, but energy-intensive, heavy industries like steel production, shipping, heavy transport and aviation.

What is gold hydrogen?

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, but it rarely exists in pure forms. Current production methods can be expensive, emissions-intensive and can require large amounts of water.

Gold hydrogen is naturally occurring hydrogen that:

  • Accumulates naturally under the ground, generated by geological processes.
  • Can be produced using proven engineering practices with minimal environmental impacts and has a small footprint compared to other exploration activities.
  • As a replacement for carbon-based fuels, naturally occurring hydrogen offers significant cost and emissions advantages relative to other sources of hydrogen production.

Gold Hydrogen does not require fracking or hydraulic stimulation to be produced.

Our long-term vision

Gold Hydrogen has a long-term vision to help the world transition to a low-carbon future by becoming a commercial producer and supplier of natural hydrogen.

By partnering with industry leaders to explore and develop our natural hydrogen, Gold Hydrogen is making progress with: 

 

  • Early opportunities to support local transition from carbon-based energy sources to natural hydrogen sources

  • Interest in natural hydrogen sales

  • Alignment with South Australian and national Hydrogen Action Plans

  • Ideally located supply for domestic and international market off-takers

Hydrogen fuel cell technology is changing the transport sector.
