World Trade Center Gold Heist

6 posts in this topic

I read that millions of dollars of Gold and Silver Bullion was stolen and went missing before/after the 911 attack. I haven't researched this topic yet and haven't seen it discussed in this forum.Was the bullion stolen or returned to its owners? Could someone please give a truthful answer with evidence to back what really occured, thanks

this will be immedialty thrown under the "Its a Conspiracy train" by some of the folks here after it starts recieving hits..........

Yes sir there are some very glaring discrepancies as to what happened ot all of the gold stored in the basement vaults of the WTC

you are looking for a defenitive answer? of course YOU KNOW that there is NO explanation and actually there has been NO official

anything on this issue

there had been some reports made shortly after the attacks that place armored cars abandoned in some of the OLD SUBWAY tunnels that lead directly to the WTC basement

there is wide rumors that there was a SUBSTANTIAL amount of Gold and silver Bullion stored in the wtc center vaults .to this date myself i have found nothing but dead ends concerning this issue.Mt Initial thoughts are this is one of the many "Stories" that was out on the collapse to divert attention away from what really happened

Now interestingly enpugh I was unable to work on 9-11 i was at home watching TV and saw everything as it unfolded, not just bits and pieces mind you i watched the tv for almost 36 straight hours on that day. DO ANY OF YOU REMEMBER shortly after the pentagon attack actually within MINUTES of this there were reports on ABC and CBS that ANOTHER explosion had occurred AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE PENTAGON just out of camera sight there was visible plumes of smoke and the reporters mention the explosion it was in the Financial district very close to the pentagon presumably in bankers row

there were 2 or 3 mentions of this and then it dissapeared NEVER TO BE MENTIONED AGAIN i saw it with my own eyes i watched them report it and i NEVER heard of it again NOR can i find a SINGLE reference to it on the web or in news archives...................interesting all things considered..there were reports that the WTC had mor gold and silver than Fort knox where it is presumed to be stored

Missing Gold

A King's Ransom in Precious Metals Seems to have Disappeared

http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/docs/gold_vault.jpg This image is found on the PBS.org website companion for the television documentary America Rebuilds under the section Uncovering Property. The page, entitled A Treasure in Silver and Gold, describes the vault as two levels of 3,000 square feet each. See the source (http://www.pbs.org/americarebuilds/engineering/engineering_property_02.html) for the full-sized image. The page credits images to Leslie E. Robertson and Associates. There are rumors that $160 billion in gold bullion was stored under the World Trade Center. Yet the only published articles about recovered gold mention only around $200 million worth of gold. All of the reports of recovered precious metals appear to refer to a removal operation conducted in late October of 2001. On Nov. 1, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani announced that "more than $230 million" worth of gold and silver bars that had been stored in a bomb-proof vault had been recovered. A New York Times article contained: 1 (http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/gold.html#ref1)

Two Brinks trucks were at ground zero on Wednesday to start hauling away the $200 million in gold and silver that the Bank of Nova Scotia had stored in a vault under the trade center ... A team of 30 firefighters and police officers are helping to move the metals, a task that can be measured practically down to the flake but that has been rounded off at 379,036 ounces of gold and 29,942,619 ounces of silver .. Another article gave a figure of $650 million to the value of gold in the 4 WTC vault.

Unknown to most people at the time, $650 million in gold and silver was being kept in a special vault four floors beneath Four World Trade Center. The gold and silver were recently recovered.

An article in the TimesOnline gives the following rundown of precious metals that were being stored in WTC vaults belonging to Comex. 2 (http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/gold.html#ref2)

Comex metals trading - 3,800 gold bars weighing 12 tonnes and worth more than $100 million

Comex clients - 800,000 ounces of gold with a value of about $220 million

Comex clients - 102 million ounces of silver, worth $430 million

Bank of Nova Scotia - $200 million of goldThat totals $950 million.

There appear to be no reports of precious metals discovered between November of 2001 and the completion of excavation several months later. It would seem that at least the better part of a billion dollars worth of precious metals went missing. It is not plausible that whatever destroyed the towers vaporized gold and silver, which are dense, inert metals that are extremely unlikely to participate in chemical reactions with other materials.

The circumstances surrounding part of the gold that was recovered offer clues to what may have happened to the unrecovered gold. According to reports, two truckloads of gold were found in a delivery tunnel under 5 World Trade Center in a 10-wheel lorry which had been crushed by falling steel. The vault was under 4 World Trade Center, which was closer to the South Tower, and more heavily damaged. There were no bodies discovered with the lorry, suggesting that whoever was removing the gold was warned of the imminent collapse of the South Tower. 3 (http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/gold.html#ref3)

Loose change 2nd edition also supports this 911 snippet, members comments, was a team of gold removal specialists driving lorries of gold out of the WTC complex after the planes hit, in all the confusion?? Almost sounds too surreal to be true. Like a James Bond film.:D

The only armored car found on site was a Brinks armored car that was making one of several daily deliveries to varried businesses and banks in the WTC complex. The recovery of the gold and silver (and it was in the hundreds of millions, not billions) was discribed in a recent book by the construction supervisor who headed the night time shift during the demolition process.

It obviously melted and was disintegrated...by the heat from the jet fuel...the same heat caused the steel beams to become and unstable and cause the eventual collapse of the two buildings....
