I can't tell if quantumcarl is being serious or not. Are you being sarcastic? Gold is not formed by volcanos. I don't know if any radioactive element decays into gold, but I don't think so. I think the only place gold is formed naturally is in a supernova, and I'm pretty sure you won't find one of those inside Mt. St. Helens.
