A video has popped up of treasure hunters discovering a huge gold treasure rumored to be the Japanese general Tomoyuki Yama#a troops looting spoil from South East Asia during WWII.

If real it's a pretty neat find.

The video show a group of men in a flooded cave appearing to deactivate explosives around a huge cache of gold bars, and further in the video they clean the gold bars.

It looks real, you judge, video's below.

Wiki


Yama#a's gold, also referred to as the Yama#a treasure, is the name given to the alleged war loot stolen in Southeast Asia by Japanese forces during World War II and hidden in caves, tunnels, underground complexes, or just underground in the Philippines. It is named for the Japanese general Tomoyuki Yama#a, nicknamed "The Tiger of Malaya".

Though accounts that the treasure remains hidden in the Philippines have lured treasure hunters from around the world for over fifty years, its existence is dismissed by most experts.

The rumored treasure has been the subject of a complex lawsuit that was filed in a Hawaiian state court in 1988 involving a Filipino treasure hunter, Rogelio Roxas, and the former Philippine president, Ferdinand Marcos.




Testing the gold by drilling holes in the bars.


Documentary, i recommend watching it.

If those gold bars are the product of looting, they will presumably be returned to the original owners, hmm?

If they are still alive that is, they might have died by now down to natural causes or perished in the conflict back then.

Might be some relatives left around that may be entitled to the stuff through.

Gold is likely to have come from government stocks. Governments still exist. All the current states of the area, AND the European colonising powers, like France.

Why tell anyone you found that much gold? Just to have some government claim it.

Finders keepers losers effing weepers especially after 70 years.

I would just take it and smelt it all and make different gold bars.

The last video in the OP is a documentary, i can only recommend watching it, not only does it prove the treasure exist, but it's also telling the story of the finder and the that the treasure got stolen from him by no other than dictator Ferdinand Marcos, there is a somewhat "happy end" to the story.

appologies for " reply to self " - but i was in hurry - and now edit window expired :

i am deeply suspicious of these " gold bars "

my additional concerns are :

1 - the stars on the " bullion bar " are raised - not stamped in

2 - the bar density - gold = 19.3g / cm3 and they so not SEEM to me to be handling it like it has the mass a real gold bar would

3 - drilling - i have never actually drilled a gold bar - but i have drilled a LOT of other metals of varying density hardness , ductility and maleability and the swarf // chips dont look " right " to me

thats all for now

Just to chip in, the beginning of the first vide shows dude 'disarming' what looks to be mines placed around the cache of gold. They look an awful lot like Japanese mines form WWII...

And the value would be greatly affected. There's a chain of ownership tied to gold and mints who buy it need to be able to trace that ownership. Otherwise, you could lose up to 60% of value on the open market.

I hope this is a real video! Very cool if it is! A few things did set off my skeptic sensors though,

in the second video, the gold is just is just stacked against a wall and doesnt appear dirty at all. I would think that amount of gold would be in some sort of container tomake it easier to carry
It strikes me to see how calm and cool everyone is. Theres no excitement or even expression of joy on their faces
Finally, the "warning" in the second video is from the "Office of Satire", "Outer Space International". Whatever that is.

I hate to be that guy, but those things jumped out at me.

I agree with ignorant ape, the second video aint gold. If you've ever handled a gold bar you'll know what I mean. The way they are handling the bar shows it's light, not gold at all. Wait for the adverts "buy a part of Yashamitas gold, only $100 an ounce".

Its now common to drill gold bars since the the gold plated tungsten bars were found years ago.
Its also common for drilling of gold bars to be a slightly different shade of gold then the outside of the bar.
This is due to the chemicals in the slag on the bar after pouring.

thanks for that - i am aware of colour // finished imperfections in cast and machined steels and no ferrous alloys - but as said i has never worked with gold

but my " objection " to the chip // swarf is not its colour - but its behaviour

in particular - given golds maleability and ductility - i find it highly suspicious that the swarf thread snaps when bent between the guys fingers

open market?...you don't need an "open market" to get full value for your gold.
