Gold Bar Discovered Filled With Tungsten
by Robert Wenzel: The
Ford Foundation and the CIA
bullion dealer ABC Bullion
is reporting that one of its suppliers has provided them photographic
evidence of a tungsten filled 1 kilo gold bar,. The bar passed a
hand-held xrf scan which showed 99.98% pure AU. The tungsten was
only discovered when the bar was physically cut in half.
reports of 400oz tungsten filled bars being discovered in Hong Kong,
this is the first documented and verified report with photographic
evidence that has been made public, states Silver
Doctors. ABC Bullion is a major player in the gold bar business
and thus this report should be taken seriously.
the reports from ABC:
Note, ABC is not
insinuating that this tungsten discovery is part of some grand scheme.
They are noting that it is very profitable to try and get away with
slipping tungsten in the core of gold bars. At the same time, though,
there have been rumors for a long-time that Fort Knox gold may be
salted. Here's Silver Doctor on a Rob
Kirby 2009 report on the manufacture of tungsten blanks and Fort

been drilled out and filled with Tungsten (W).
was purchased by staff of a scrap dealer in xxxxx, UK yesterday.
The bar appeared to be perfect other than the fact that it was
2gms underweight. It was checked by hand-held xrf and showed 99.98%
Au. Being Tungsten, it would not be ferro-magnetic. The bar was
supplied with the original certificate.
of the business that purchased the bar only became suspicious
when he realized the weight discrepancy and had the bar cropped.
He estimates between 30-40% of the weight of the bar to be Tungsten.
This is very
worrying and reinforces the lengths that people are willing to
go to profit from the current high metal prices. Please be careful.
The two halves of the bar.
we have confirmed documentation that 1 kilo gold bars have been
drilled out and filled with tungsten, look for a rapid scramble
to verify the AU contents of 400oz bars which reportedly have
also been tainted with tungsten (the market is 'stuffed full'
of gold plated tungsten 400oz bars according to Rob Kirby).
unfamiliar with the original reports that 60 metric tonnes of
400oz 'good delivery' bars were gutted and filled with
tungsten, and swapped with US Treasury gold at Fort Knox in a
highly sophisticated plan, an excerpt of his 2009 piece is included
The amount of "salted tungsten" gold bars in question was allegedly
between 5,600 and 5,700 – 400 oz – good delivery bars [roughly
60 metric tonnes].
apparently all highly orchestrated by an extremely well financed
hours of this scam being identified – Chinese officials had many
of the perpetrators in custody.
here's what the Chinese allegedly uncovered:
15 years ago – during the Clinton Administration [think Robert
Rubin, Sir Alan Greenspan and Lawrence Summers] – between
1.3 and 1.5 million 400 oz tungsten blanks were allegedly manufactured
by a very high-end, sophisticated refiner in the USA [more than
16 Thousand metric tonnes]. Subsequently, 640,000 of these
tungsten blanks received their gold plating and WERE shipped to
Ft. Knox and remain there to this day. I know folks who have
copies of the original shipping docs with dates and exact weights
of "tungsten" bars shipped to Ft. Knox.
The balance of this 1.3 million – 1.5 million 400 oz tungsten
cache was also plated and then allegedly "sold" into
the international market.
the global market is literally "stuffed full of 400 oz salted
Bottom line: Ron
Paul has a very good reason to want an audit of Fort Knox gold. Let's
see if there is any validity to these rumors.
Makes one wonder if the Indians were smart enough to assay their
200 tonne haul from the IMF?
