Hello ATS! This is my very first topic post, so I apologize in advance if I blow this
I came across this very interesting article by the AP. in a nutshell, a well-known treasure hunter who had been searching for a lost caravan of Union gold that could be worth between $25 and $50 million got a MASSIVE hit on his Gravimeter and notified the FBI.
“The father-son duo spent years combing this bit of Pennsylvania wilderness with high-end metal detectors, drills and other tools to prospect for a fabled cache of Civil War gold. They felt certain they’d discovered the hiding place of the long-lost booty, leading the FBI to the mountainous, heavily wooded area last March.”
Well, things rapidly went downhill from there... you see, the FBI allegedly dug up the gold and made off with it!
The eyewitness who lived nearby gives some pretty damnit testimony.
What do you think, ATS?

I wonder how much of the gold will wind up disappearing. The FBI will probably confiscate it and use it to fund some sketchy projects. Maybe some bonuses for the top people in the FBI too, from the proceeds of what actually gets reported as found.
Hell, I like making up a conspiracy on occasion.
