Go Up Go Down

Hello fellow T-hunter!  I am getting ready for my first of many visits to the Philippines.  I have spent the past 6 years doing research on the Yam Gold.  I am flying out to Manila in February.  I am curious if any of you fellow T-hunters are going to be out there.  I am looking to further my research before I start my digging in a year.  I am still at the gathering information stage.  I would like to meet some locals that have knowledge to some of the gold sites.  I know this will cost money, but I have am coming well equipped with knowledge and commonsense.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

Good luck to all of the diggers on the upcoming season. 

Mark

You are clearly the ultimate dreamer, mate.

Millions of locals in the Philippines have spent billions of hours crawling and scrabbling around looking for the treasure, some using alleged first hand information from witnesses and either they have quietly found and recovered it or it never existed. Put all the stories together and Yamashita would have buried more gold than exists in Fort Knox many times over. And green diamonds. And gold coins. And Federal Reserve Bank Notes which were never printed by the FRB. The remaining locals involved in Yamashita Treasure have spent lifetimes putting fake treasure marks on places to sell these locations to the unsuspecting. Or they put them there as practical jokes for the gullible.

Just enjoy your holiday and do some local beach hunting.

I would take Goldigger1950s advice there are loads of fantastic tourist beaches over there and people love the beach and water you will have a far greater chance of finding something of value on the beach than you ever will chasing wild dreams and going over tracks that have already lead to nothing in the past.  But hey its  your life your money your holiday I hope you enjoy it the people there are great too.

I would not use "myth," I would rather say "folk tale," because there has always been word of mouth, anecdotal evidence, when if you want to call it fact, you need empyrical evidence, to get it out of folk tale range into factual account. For it to be a myth, some one would have to say:"once upon a time, there was this Japanese General, named Yamashita, and it is said he was 10 feet tall. It is also said..."

It may be as real as the shoe on my foot, but I can see  that.... however, I am not yet a doubter... just waiting until all the evidence is in.  Grin

And that's the root of the problem, isn't it, Brian? No evidence beyond the word of mouth? Like the old telephone game, the retelling of each tale makes it more unbelievable. I don't believe this will ever go away.
