The report of the faked 400 oz bars is in itself mathematically incorrect.
400 oz of genuine gold (or tungsten if you will) displace about 784 ml or g
Therefore multiplying 1,400.000 bars of 400 oz by 784 ml (= 0.784 kg)
gives you only 1,097,60 metric tons instead of the quoted 16,000.
Fabricating 400-oz blanks makes no sense, if you have to coat them (3mm ?)
by a still important mass of genuine gold.
You don´t have to drill holes. You only have to measure the conductivity of
a bar against a reference bar of genuine gold. Gold is a far better conductor.
The travel of sound through a bar could be measured also.
Put it in an oven or a deep-freeze and register how fast it loses or gains
temperature. It´s just an assumption, because I don´t have a 400-oz bar
to do it with.
The gold stock of a country has by all standards of accounting, resp. by law,
to be shown in the Treasury´s balance. It is public.
When we discussed the topic 3 months ago in a German forum for gold
investments, I could produce on Internet the specific page and entry of
the German government´s gold possessions ( of which about 3,700 tons at the time physically in Frankfurt).
Several thousand tons of the German Reich´s stock was confiscated after
the end of WW II by the Americans, still today physically resting in the
underground of Manhattan.
Paris and London gave back their parts of the total confiscation. The US
did not. When questions in Germany are raised, why the central bank is
not in physical possession of that gold, the public is being calmed down
by the fact of it being shown as a credit on Germany´s balance. The reason for removing it from German territory was to prevent it from falling into
hands of the Russians.
Why doesn´t someone near Fort Knox go there, have a look, and ask entry
into the building ? I think it is still heavily guarded. So there must be some-
thing of value to guard.
