- Primary Interest:
I applaud Dennis and his team for uncovering the truth behind this amazing story!
He stayed with it for 40 years and didn't give up his search.
I thank Dennis for including us in on his quest to find it!
But the truth didn't come easy-it took hard work, determination, tenacity, grit, mental fortitude, physical endurance, sacrifice, and a lot of faith to bring this story home. And the truth is very evident that there was gold and silver hauled out by the FED's.
The FED's have, since day 1, tried to cover this story up and are still doing so today--their MO hasn't changed one bit! They didn't thank Dennis for all his hard work in leading them to this vast treasure but treated him and his team like they were nothing but trash-- without any right to be there, by placing them all under car arrest, not to mention locking down the town! Then when they dug it up, they lied to him and told him they found nothing.
What an insult to his intelligence!
They didn't give him any credit for the find that he led them to or give him any reward or finder's fee for doing so!
But instead, they told him to get out of this work that led them to this very treasure they now possess! How do you like that audacity? Then they questioned the hard work he is now doing on other treasure sites, wanting to know where they are too? Any why, so they can steal that away from him too?
The FED's have the biggest case of gold fever there is--They want it all! They wouldn't respect Dennis' 40 years of hard work or reward him for it but stole it away from him and they would keep stealing it all away from him. This is the worst violation of human rights and the dignity of human life itself!
I applaud Dennis for fighting for what rightfully belongs to him and be finally treated with some respect and get a judgment in his favor. They are model Treasure Hunters, always following all the laws! Their reputation is flawless. The conservative estimate of 500MIL spot price, not to mention the greater antiquity value has to be the biggest treasure find in history? The History Channel should have been covering this one instead of wasting their time on Oak Island!
IF forthcoming evidence shows the removal of Civil war era precious metals placed by troops , The government's going to present thier source of locating it as an informant.
And one that had already attempted to violate the Antiquities act..
Between admitted attempts at recovering samples ' and claim of human remains, the government had enough "reason" / excuse to keep him/them off the actual site of government activity to confirm or deny the claim.
I understand your perspective.
But Dennis is up against an entity he invited into the equation on it's terms. Rather than his.
I'd be surprised if he gets credited for the rediscovery of tangible civil war era precious metals. Proven to have existed , then the group certainly should get credit. As to a cut of the alleged hoard , that's up to the applicable law after definition of it's legal status is complete. Which may or may not settle other claims that arise.
A cautionary tale when looking to make a recovery on public land.
Doubly cautious when involving anyone out for interests other than one's own.
