Is the U.S. Government hiding a massive gold deposit in the Chocolate Mountains in California? Well, according to a few top-notch conspiracy theorists, the U.S. Congress passed the Desert Wilderness Protection Act that has cordoned off this vast gold discovery from the public. Unfortunately, we may never know if this mammoth gold deposit exists due to the clandestine nature of our government… or will we?
In order to set the record straight, I decided to research “The Great Gold Heist” at the Chocolate Mountains and present the facts in a logical and unbiased way.
Recently, one of the more infamous “Gold conspiracy theorists” published the following video titled, Millions of Tons of Secret Gold, Ready to Be Released:
In the video, the author of the Road-To-Roota Theory reads the following from the article, THE GREAT GOLD HEIST:
On October 8, 1994 the biggest gold heist in history occurred, but this theft lacked the melodrama of a Jesse James holdup or the excitement of a Brink’s truck robbery. Nary a word was reported by the media even though this thievery was committed in the light of day. The citizens that were being robbed tried to cry out for help but the lawmen wouldn’t listen because unbeknownst to them they were helping the bandits gain their booty.
The 103rd Congress managed to accomplish more than a gang of train robbers could achieve in a lifetime when they approved the Desert Wilderness Protection Act. “Instead of voting on the Desert Wilderness Protection Act, Congress should be convening a criminal investigation,” said Donald Fife, spokesman for the National Association of Mining Districts. Fife was commenting on recent information that indicates tens of billions of dollars in gold deposits and huge real estate swindles may be the motivating factors behind the act.
Well, it seems as if the corrupt politicians have done it once again and have taken control of a vast amount of resources and wealth for their own use with blatant disregard for the public. Thus, if it weren’t for these brave souls to bring this information to the public’s attention, we may have never known there was a hidden treasure of gold in them thar Chocolate hills.
To understand more detail of this huge government gold conspiracy, the creator of the video above, continues to read the following text from The Great Gold Heist article:
In the land swap, Catellus Corp. will receive land from decommissioned military bases. One of the bases will be the Chocolate Mountain gunnery range. Unbeknownst to the public, inside the range is the world’s richest gold rift zone. Geologists estimate that the gold contained in this zone is worth between $40 to $100 billion. These are surface gold deposits which are more profitable to mine than the one-mile deep gold deposits in South Africa.
Supposedly, the Chocolate Mountains contains the world’s richest gold rift zone, estimated to be worth between $40-$100 billion. Furthermore, the surface gold deposits in the Chocolate Mountain are apparently more profitable than the one-mile gold deposits in South Africa. If true, this has to be one of the biggest Gold Conspiracies ever.
First, let’s consider the amount of gold purportedly contained in the Chocolate Mountains estimated by the geologists in the article. The geologists stated there was approximately $40-$100 billion worth of gold contained in the world’s richest rift zone located in the Chocolate Mountains. If we assume an average of say, $80 billion worth of gold in this hidden deposit, this is how much gold would be contained:
$80 billion / $400 0z = 200 million oz (Moz)
200 Moz = 6,220 metric tons (mt)
The price of gold in the mid-1990’s (at the time of the article) was about $400 an ounce. Thus, there would only be 200 million oz (Moz) of gold contained in the Chocolate Mountains or 6,220 metric tons. While this is indeed a lot of gold, Nevada has produced 206 Moz of gold since 1978, with the majority coming from just three mines (Goldstrike, Cortez and the Carlin Mine Operations).
So, as we can see, even if there was that much gold in the Chocolate Mountains (which I doubt), Nevada has already produced more gold in the past 40 years. Also, 6,220 metric tons (mt) of gold is nowhere near a million tons.
Secondly, how about the quality of the gold hidden in the Chocolate Mountains? While anyone can claim there’s a lot of gold in the ground, it has to be economical to extract and produce. Going back and listening intently to the video above, we get our answer:
In addition to controlling Catellus, Santa Fe owns and operates the Mesquite gold mine located on the Chocolate Mountain rift zone. The Mesquite gold mine is one of the top ten mines in the United States and has some of the most profitable gold deposits of any mine in the world. To the north is the Chocolate Mountain gunnery range. The Mesquite open pit gold mine literally stops at the fence that borders the gunnery range.
According to the author of The Great Gold Heist article and the gentlemen reading the article in the video above, the Mesquite Gold mine located on the southern flank of the Chocolate Mountains is one of the top ten mines in the United States and has some of the most profitable gold deposits of any mine in the world.
