This is Tungsten:




Pure tungsten is a steel-gray to tin-white metal. Tungsten has the highest melting point and lowest vapour pressure of all metals, and at temperatures over 1650°C has the highest tensile strength. The metal oxidises in air and must be protected at elevated temperatures. It has excellent corrosion resistance and is attacked only slightly by most mineral acids.

Tungsten is worth 10$ a pound.
Tungsten also has the same density as Gold, along with other attributes it shares with gold like oxidation and corrosion protection. Making it the perfect metal to make fake gold bars filled with worthless material. Impossible to differentiate with tests other than to dig inside of the bar and see whats it in it.

In early 2009 Tungsten gold bars have started to be discovered in

USA,
Australia,
China,
Ethiopia,
Canada,
France,
UK,

The Chinese did an investigation, here is their report :


Roughly 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 (gold) plated and then allegedly “sold” into the international market.

The Americans ad English say the Gold comes from China:

factory in China making Tungsten Gold do exist



600 000 000 000 $

If there are 1.3 million salted 400 oz bars in existence, and each one is 75% tungsten, then that makes 390 million ounces of gold which in truth isn’t there. At $1,660 per ounce, that’s over $600 billion which people think they own but don’t. To put that number in context, it’s roughly half the total quantity of subprime mortgages which had been issued at the height of the housing bubble.

The Rothschild exited the Gold Market in 2004. Why? Why exit such a lucrative market when the prices keep on going up and up? Coming from the Rothschild, hard to believe the master of money making did not want to capitalize on the Gold going this high. But why are they not getting involved with Gold?


And here is Ron Paul asking for Fort Knox Gold to be inspected and tested for Tungsten in order to make sure that the USA really has the Gold it thinks it has.



Of Course no inspection of the US Gold has been made to this day.

It is in fact quite possible to differentiate gold bars from gold plated tungsten bars without having to actually cut into them. Methods include:
-A simple harmonics test-impacting the bars and measuring the sound it resonates
-Electrical conductivity test
-Heat dispersion test

The reason it is more difficult to determine the use of tungsten as apposed to other "filler" metals is because its density is almost identical to that of golds, and the Archimedes fluid immersion test would probably not give a definitive answer.

I took an economics class in college. It changed the shape of my pretty little head! 30 years later and I'm still confused.


Among the many factions of Americans who believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, one fervent group traces its wrong turn back to Aug. 15, 1971. On that day, President Nixon eliminated the gold standard — a monetary system in which dollars were backed by and could be exchanged for a fixed amount of gold. Since then, the United States has used a fiat currency, in which dollars are valuable simply because the government says they are.

A recent upsurge in pining for the gold standard among tea partiers and libertarians has led 13 conservative states to adopt or consider laws in the past year that would allow gold and silver coins to be used as legal tender. Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidates Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich are both urging policymakers to consider a nationwide return to the gold standard

If we aren't using the "Gold Standard" what is gold at, or not at, Fort Knox all about. Is it for foreign debts?

Saw on the news a few months ago a guy in New York paid something around 10 to 15k for a gold bar, it had an official serial number and was sold by a reputable NY gold seller. Turned out to be professionally cut/melted with a tungsten core, very sophisticated process, the gold bar was worth a few thousand nowhere near the price he paid. Until some cutting edge gold scanner/detectors are used this type of thing will continue, the value only motivates these scammers. Would be hard to avoid this scam if even the most reputable gold buyers and sellers are getting fooled, who knows, maybe even Glen Beck's horde is filled with this filler.

I think the gold in fort knox is there to make the movie masterpiece Battlefield Earth more accurate and realistic.

It's all mental anyway - gold and tungsten are both from the earth, it's humans who put a price on them in a lust for wealth and shiny things. On the other hand, the Chinese who seemingly are openly faking the gold bars should be both arrested and given personality tests to see why they are so conniving and living without principles of fairness and honesty.

Your right, all Chinese people are responsible for these forgeries and social stereotypes should be applied.

Who said all chinese people? You may have select reading syndrome (SRS), symptoms of which are jumping to conclusion about intent, missing words here and there, and thinking somebody said one thing when they said the opposite. Read my post again, word for word. The chinese people I spoke of are the ones who are faking the gold bars. There is no social sterotype in my post, and if you see one then you have missed the point.
