It is claimed that there are many methods of creating
the ORMUS or M-State minerals, from the complex to
the very simple, and the film documents a number of
them in its quest to divine the true nature of the matter.
Many of the characters within All The Gold You Can
Eat believe that ORMUS is most effectively derived
from seawater, and that by using either mechanical or
chemical means, it is possible to isolate and condense
the ORMUS Minerals into a solid state. This is the
white powder discovered by David Hudson, who
called it the key to the Philosophers Stone, and it is
the material that this documentary set out to explore.
The process taught to Joe and depicted in the film is
known as the "Wet Method", and it involves creating
a precipitate from seawater (or re-hydrated sea salt),
using a 20% solution of sodium hydroxide. The "Wet
Method" seems to be a simple and favored process
amongst the film's characters; it is used by firefighter
Peter May at the beginning of the film, and by
alchemist Don Nance and Joe as they begin the gold
making process that creates the film's epic finale.
As the film shows, the creation of what is believed
to be ORMUS is really a very straightforward, if
slightly laborious, process. There are already many
ORMUS researchers and advocates who have laid
out the process in detail for the public to view.
For those interested in a comprehensive description
of the production of ORMUS, two of the film's central
characters, Barry Carter and Don Nance, have
