Light gold bars... Sounds like a breakfast snack. chuckle.gif I don't believe those bars were hollow for a second, what's the point of such a complex process?
Most strike marks are etched, not poured to have a bevel/emboss effect.

I believe the gold was real because those guys probably didn't have their equivalent 15 minutes of fame. Nobody cares, so the gold must be real. Where are they now?

Ok

Ive got some stories to tell about people who did this exact scam,,,
way back in the day

True Treasure Magazine ran ads in their Mags

for people's stories of what they found while treasure hunting

The Mag would pay you up to $500 for your story with photos of your find
if it was worthy of publishing and they got the rights to the story
and published it .

Ergo , The motivation to run this scam

$500 fat ones in your pocket for a few photo's with a story line .

and yes, back in 1983 , to desert rat ,,, $500 was mucho mula if for almost
free .

cost you some film
a stamp
some developing

and a little fuel to melt the brass.

and,,, WALAA ,,, INSTANT $500 BUCKS !

Get it now ?

If that were the case, where is the follow-up to the first story that was published revealing that it was a scam? Did everyone just fall off the edge of the Earth? chuckle.gif

Oh and another thing, here's a quote from your posted website/article:

For the sake of the story, we will call this man Anthony, his brother Dave, and their partners Ted and Jim. Anthony had reead books about lost mines and treasures. He always wanted to be a treasure hunter, so he spent a couple of years in the military, he and his brother Dave saved up their money and when Anthony left the military in 1956, he used some of his money to buy a beautiful new Willys Jeep so he and his brother could go treasure hunting (a Jeep which he still drives to this day 54 years later). Anthony and Dave brought in two other men to help with their treasure hunting. Jim, who had the experience and Ted who was an engineer and math whiz (this would be a very important quality which you will see later. They spent the next thirty-five years together chasing the dream.

Rog, that's a lot of trouble to go through for a measly $500.

The writer states that of all the stories he's read, this is the one he believes.

So, are you saying there is absolutely not treasure to be found? It's impossible?

Well, I found one but not a very happy ending for some and maybe a happy ending for the U.S. Government.

Quote from Epilogue:

October 11, 2012 Becca Gross (of Prometheus Entertainment) emailed me that she's currently working on a documentary series for the History Channel, and wanted to check in regarding the possibility of an on-camera interview. In the second season of "America's Book of Secrets," they reveal lesser-known information behind some of America's most mysterious organizations. In the episode she's currently researching, they're looking at some of America's lost treasures, including Victorio Peak. She thought my knowledge might be a great contribution. I told her that everything I know was gleaned from others, so don't know what more to add, other than what impressed me about the entire story. The ancient legend is fascinating, along with the disappearance of the treasure from the mountain while being controlled by the government military base. It's a never ending story of what happens to the mentality of those possessed by greed and fear. I'll be looking forward to watching this new documentary on "America's Book of Secrets" when, and if it's completed.

The Treasure of Victorio Peak:

In this case I got caught up in the story because tales of lost and/or found treasure sure peek my sense of adventure.
