In a one of its kind revelation, scientists from Junagadh Agricultural University in Gujarat have claimed to have found traces of gold in the urine of a local cattle breed - Gir.

The team of researchers led by head of JAU's biotechnology department Dr. B A Golakia used gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) method to analyse the urine samples.

Another researcher at the institute, meanwhile, said traces of silver, zinc and boron were also found in the urine sample, but the quantities were far low to be significant. The JAU is accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Testing Calibration Laboratories (NABL).
