Gold miners in Australia can’t get enough of the fruit, as the price has soared more than 10,000% in less than a month.
On Wednesday, the Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that the gold price had soared by more than $5,000 a pound to $2,890.20 a metric ton, a 24,000 percent increase in less the last 24 hours.
That’s a lot of bananas, said one gold miner, who asked not to be named.
“I’ve had to take it out of my freezer because it’s like eating a whole pound of gold,” he said.
Gold miners can get a lot more than bananas for free, according to the gold miner.
The Australian Government has warned people not to buy gold because of the increasing price, saying the metal has a high value.
But gold miner David Wilson, who has been mining for about 30 years, said he wasn’t surprised.
“This is the only place that has it, and the prices are pretty damn good,” he told ABC Radio.
“It’s a great place to mine.”
The mining industry has been a key driver of the country’s economy for years.
It employs about 8,000 people and employs about 50,000 Australians.
Gold mining has also been blamed for the recent price surge, with the Australian mining industry suffering a huge decline in the value of the metals it uses to make its products.
It has also faced criticism over its environmental impact.
In 2016, the Federal Government announced it was considering banning gold mining, citing concerns over the environmental impact and possible health impacts.
