Gold was first detected in human semen in 1981. The entry of gold into semen was hypothesized through food items. Earlier reports identified gold in semen as important for good quality of semen. The infertility rate could be low around gold mine area when compared to other places. The aim of the study was to verify this. Towards this, the quality of human semen around a gold mine (Kolar, India) was evaluated and compared to that from a place which was 2000 km away from a gold mine (Jamnagar, India). A total number of 254 semen samples from Kolar and 437 from Jamnagar were evaluated. The fertility rate was higher in Kolar region. The semen samples studied for both places showed that the semen quality was superior in Kolar gold field area.
