    You know there was something there and the feds are just being shady. I would think they could file suit with the scan as evidence.

    The show is for free advertising to place out honey for the bees. News is the honey and the bees are television networks and newspapers. I have read for years about these treasure hunters and their exploits. There are a lot of claims but no gold to take to the assay office. And I mean NONE. Where is there any proof that the Union Payroll was ever sent through Dent's Run? There is no documents, none of the men were soldiers. The military does not sent out gold with scavengers and drunks or sick and invalid. A payroll of that size would have had a military detachment of at least thirty to forty men with the commanding officer being with the rank of Major. There never was any Union Gold at Dent's Run. If there is where is the documents that verify the gold was shipped, the men were detached and papers filed on the gold missing. The government does not just lose nearly a ton or more of gold without an investigation. They say these people were sent out even the Pinkertons were sent out to investigate where is the documents to verify anything?

    All I am trying to say if you claim you have found gold in different locations but for some reason can not recover them then with all of the expertise of finding treasure surely pictures or photos can be posted of those or any finds at all. Mel Fisher's group they post photos of treasures found and treasures for sale. We know they can find treasures. If there are claims after claims of treasure found and someone keeps stealing them. Then I think if they have hunted treasures for years they should have some treasure or photos of gold and or silver to show.

    In my younger days I had people make claims of being able to run a hundred yard dash in ten seconds flat in shoulder pads yet when I ran against them, they had no shoulder pads but I outran them even though I only ran 10.9. So endless claims of finds without any to show, just like the Lagina brothers six years and any amateur treasure hunter could find as much or more treasure in one outing and they have been digging "reality" for six years now. Claims should be supported by sound research, documents or photos. Else you can get tired of claim after claim.

    "it" I do not know about? How could it come from anywhere if it was never there. The FBI said they found nothing. I am not calling anyone a liar, I would like to see proof.

    On the flip side, I wonder how many things went missing and were pushed under the rug. You didn't want your population knowing that your losing valuable's or their money. How much of that has gone on too...Kind of makes me wonder.

    The FBI wouldn't have went looking without some solid proof either?

    According to a Local Historian in Elk County. At that time (circa the late 1800s-early 1900s), the Pinkerton Detective Agency came to the area and lore has it that 3.5 gold bars were found. After some of the detectives left the agency, they were said to have spent the rest of their lives in the area looking for the rest of the gold.

    I Would think the feds have Access to the Pinkerton's Records.

    That said FK says Both they & The Feds investigators Believed there was Gold.

    You can Call the Feds Liars , They as a Whole, are Not Members here.
    and consist of thousands of public and non public people.
    if there is a member here who is a fed , you cannot call him a liar as a member..

    You can call the Laginas Liars, They are Public TV stars & Not Open Members here. If at All.

    You cannot Suggest Finders Keepers are Lying about the Gold.
    as they are also members here.

    All I'm saying IF your going to suggest It is not from one source,
    You must Believe it was from another Source ?

    & I Hope you wern't saying FK Made it up.

    I knew nothing of this until three threads popped up on the active page. The more I'm learning the weirder this sounds. Like others have mentioned, I've never heard of the FBI looking for treasure....I mean they can't even find ...Well? that gets political.

    What is the FBI doing there? Why? So? Tax payers are paying for treasure hunts? There has to be so much more to all of this!!

    What do you mean "You must believe it was from another source?" Are you speaking of the gold? If so it has not been proven that the gold was there to start with?

    The Local Historian in Elk County could very well have been the author that sold the story to "Treasure Magazine" about the "Dent's Run Gold"

    The story of Dent's Run gold only goes back to when a story was printed about $300,000 in gold missing near Buchannon, W.Va. just before the Battle of Gettysburg. I do believe this story was true. And I also believe the Dent's Run Gold story was made from this story since the Buchannon, W.Va. story was printed first. There are no earlier accounts of gold being at or near Dent's Run. I have contacted the historians up there and I have gotten newspapers from librarians up in that area. The story does not pre-date the early to late 1960's.
