    Let's not forget Mother Nature's role in rearranging things as well. Landslides, avalanches in winter, severe summer storms, massive flooding, even windstorms and tornadoes. All of these expose new ground regularly. Whether that ground is gold-bearing or not is simply a matter of location, location, location. *hehe*

    The cargo ship went down in 1681full with crates of swords, nails, & bolts of cloth

    "Spain is estimated to have imported precious metals worth 16 million pesos between the years 1590–1600. Another estimate reports imports of thirty-six million pounds of silver and four hundred thousand pounds of gold between the years 1521–1660. (The Huffington Post)"

    I would not consider Huffington Post to be the ultimate science page, but this is interesting. If true, that was a tremendous amount of gold and silver, and certainly supports my theory that the easy gold and silver was taken quiickly.
