Another of the world’s leading media organisations has woken up to the potential of natural hydrogen.

The UK-based Economist featured the natural hydrogen story in a three-page special just before Christmas, headlined: ‘The rush for colourless gold’.

It noted the international focus on man-made green hydrogen, with millions of dollars in subsidies setting up worldwide competition.

“The snag is making hydrogen in any of these ways is costly, and is likely to remain so for years,” the article said.

“So a motley crew of hydrogen hunters are searching for ‘natural’ (or ‘geological’) hydrogen, which they believe is more common than widely supposed. To those who dismiss them as dreamers, they point out that the notion of plentiful oil in the ground was dismissed as crackpot, too.”

The story then traces finds of natural hydrogen in Mali, France, the US, Brazil and, of course, Australia.

It says that our company, Gold Hydrogen “has set the industry ablaze” by confirming that hydrogen found about 100 years ago in South Australia, by accident, still exists today.

“The question is now whether it can be exploited.”
