Attacks Buried Millions Under WTC
"Underneath the crushed concrete and twisted steel girders of the World Trade Center lie about $200 million in gold and silver owned by a Canadian bank.Officials at the Toronto-based Bank of Nova Scotia have no idea when they will be able to recover the gold and silver but aren't worried that someone might try to steal it."All of ground zero is extremely secure,'' said bank spokeswoman Diane Flanagan.The gold and silver was in a vault at 4 World Trade Center, which was reduced to rubble just like the twin towers that collapsed after the Sept. 11 attack. It was not immediately clear in what form the precious metals were in, such as ingots or coins."We have every reason to believe it is safe and intact,'' Flanagan said. "And we have every reason to believe it is fully recoverable.''Besides the legions of police officers who prevent onlookers from approaching the trade center site, the bank has hired its own security contingent to protect the assets.Flanagan wouldn't say how many security officers are on duty at the site for the bank, or what precautions have been put in place. The eight vault employees who kept watch over the gold and silver before the attacks escaped unharmed.The gold and silver is insured and is part of a larger cache controlled by the bank's bullion and precious metals subsidiary, Scotia Mocatta Depository Corp." -

Crushed towers give up cache of gold ingots
"RECOVERY workers at Ground Zero have discovered hundreds of gold ingots, part of a billion dollar cache which was lost when the twin towers fell.The collapsed buildings contained a number of vaults and strongrooms, but the police were not saying who owned the gold.The Comex metals trading division of the New York Mercantile Exchange kept 3,800 gold bars — weighing 12 tonnes and worth more than $100 million (£70 million) — in vaults in the building’s basement. Comex also held almost 800,000 ounces of gold there on behalf of others with a value of about $220 million. It also held more than 102 million ounces of silver, worth $430 million.The Bank of Nova Scotia, which kept gold in the Comex vault, reported $200 million of gold lost in the wreckage. Comex also held precious metals for Chase Manhattan Bank, the Bank of New York and Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking." -
