Digging For Nazi Treasure: German Treasure Hunters Claim .
A South Korean firm made a splash on Tuesday after publishing, what it says, is a Russian Imperial Navy cruiser which was sunken during the Russo-Japanese War and may have had an entire flotilla’s treasury on board.
The Dmitrii Donskoi was an armored cruiser in the Russian Imperial Navy’s Baltic fleet which was deployed to the Pacific along with several other ships to fight in the 1904-05 Russo-Japanese War. It took part in the Battle of Tsushima, which was disastrous for Russia. It fled crippled and chased by Japanese warships and was eventually scuttled by its crew to avoid surrender off the coast of what is now South Korea’s Ulleung Island, or Ulleungdo.
The cruiser is a coveted target for treasure hunters. According to some historical accounts, the Dmitrii Donskoi carried the treasury of the entire flotilla, meant to cover port expenses and pay the salaries of sailors and officers. Individual gold reserves of several other ships damaged in the battle may have been transported to the warship as well. Whoever manages to find the wreck site may become a very wealthy person.
Shinil Group, a South Korean company, says it knows where the ship lies. On Tuesday it said its exhibition used a couple of submersibles to dive 434 meters deep in seas 1.3 kilometers off the island and found the rusty hull of the armored Russian warship. Footage and photos released by the treasure hunters clearly shows the word ‘Donskoi’ written in Cyrillic.
“The name… was discovered on the stern of the ship,” Yonhap news agency cited the company as saying. “Our discovery has finally put a stop to a controversy over the Donskoi’s existence and sunken location. We’ll soon go ahead with procedures to rescue the ship.”
The firm spent years trying the find the treasure ship and is now preparing for a joint operation with companies from China, Canada, and Britain to lift the fabled treasure of the Russian ship. The salvaging operation may take place in October and November and the finds would be presented to the public in December, Shinil said.
The firm estimates that there may be as much as 200 tons of gold on the Dmitrii Donskoi and that the entire treasure would net up to $133 billion. Shinil promised to be generous with the treasure. It pledged to spend 10 percent on investment projects on Ulleung Island, which is scarcely inhabited but serves as a popular tourist destination for South Koreans. It would include a museum of the sunken ship.
An equal share was promised to Russia as the rightful owner of the sunken ship. Shinil says the Russian government promised not to claim more and in fact has been helping the South Korean firm with their search for the wreck. The money would go into joint projects with Russia like a railroad connecting Russia with South Korea via North Korea.
Considering that in the past the Dmitrii Donskoi had been falsely reported found, Shinil is currently organizing an exhibition of items it lifted from the seabed, to prove the find is real. They say they will put on display personal effects of Captain Ivan Lebedev, who ordered the ship to be scuttled and dies a few days after from wound received in the battle, as well as other evidence. The company said it would give an update on their salvaging plans later this week IDMan

Treasure hunters say they have found Confederate gold in .

Bring it back home
Environmental expert and Bayview resident, Francisco Da Costa, asked, “The City and County of San Francisco has so many environmental organizations that give awards to people all over the world. Why don’t they focus on something that is in their backyard”
“The answer,” he stated, “is that they (The City and Mayor Ed Lee) are beholden to the politicians, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Richard Blum, Willie Brown.
“They don’t care about Lennar building homes on contaminated soil. They just care that they get a piece of the action. Rose Pak and Willie Brown will call some of these contractors. A golf tournament will be organized. Contractors write checks. People come and tell me, ‘This is amazing! They collected $5 million!’”
In a Wednesday, May 13, 2013, meeting, Navy Environmental Coordinator Keith Forman told a worried Treasure Island resident about newly discovered radiation, “We didn’t know then what we know now.” Da Costa poo-pooed this lame excuse. “The Navy has never been truthful,” he said. “Everybody knows it.”
Da Costa recalled in the ‘50s, the Navy didn’t tell Bayview resident workers who were promised a month’s salary to bury the carcasses on overtime pay at night that the animal bodies had been subjected to radiological experiments.
He reported people paid a month’s advance salary developed cancer after clenching radioactive canisters between their knees on aircraft bound for East Coast bases.
Treasure Island whistleblower Kathryn Lundgren agreed: “Everything that (the Navy) needs to keep quiet, they hide.”
Hunters Point-Treasure Island history
According to Da Costa, 95 percent of what we know as the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, like Treasure Island, is landfill. In the late ‘40s, early ‘50s, the Navy demolished two huge hills. That dirt expanded the shipyard.
Navy policymaking was conducted at Treasure Island, the Navy’s official headquarters. Command staff enjoyed magnificent views of the City and the Bay from their homes on Yerba Buena Island, high above.
Engineers and scientists worked at Hunters Point, known for shipbuilding and experiments. During World War II, depleted uranium was first tested there. Prior to moving to Lawrence Livermore, the National Defense Lab was located at the shipyard, where Little Boy, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, was assembled.
Ships present at Bikini Island bomb tests returned to Hunters Point and Treasure Island. Sandblasting at Hunters Point sprayed much of the radioactive residue into the Bay and scattered it through shipyard soil.
Da Costa describes “intense” and “serious” lab experiments and scientific tests. In close proximity to the seven-story National Defense Lab was the UCSF lab at Palou and Navy Road. The National Defense Laboratory, the UCSF Lab and Lawrence Livermore Labs collaborated on experiments.
During World War II, the 10-story above-ground, four-story below-ground Naval Radiological Laboratory was used for testing and building bombs, missiles and other weapons.
Canisters containing cesium and radium were transported through half- and quarter-mile underground tunnels.
Large animals – horses, cows – were brought to the shipyard, experimented upon and tested, then their radioactive carcasses buried all over the shipyard.
Da Costa reports that, in distinction to the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, most of Treasure Island’s radioactive contamination came from spills. For example, aircraft carriers would jettison a spent capsule contaminated with nuclear fuel residue from the vessel onto the ground and into the water.
No safety on either site
Hunters Point whistleblowers indicated that San Franciscans can’t be comfortable that soil driven away or left on-site at Hunters Point is free of contamination.
Most Hunters Point trucks, however, appear covered, while at Treasure Island, on-site soil is moved in open trucks from highly contaminated areas. Dust flies everywhere around homes and businesses.
Lundgren witnessed recent episodes of radioactive dust trucked and dumped on the island. She verifies that trucks bearing toxic materials do drive off-island.
A pattern repeated by Tetra Tech’s contract trucking companies is to move toxic soil from known hot areas and cart it around the island to “clean” locations.
In one instance, Kathryn reported workers ground up vegetation for mulch. While walking the perimeter of radiologically impacted Bigelow and Halyburton Courts, Kathryn heard earth-diggers. She videotaped a man inside Halyburton Court reducing a tree to wood chips, then later observed him while he drove through the island dumping toxic chips in her neighbors’ yards.
On Tuesday, May 19, 2014, Kathryn and two friends observed contract workers in a small unmarked Volvo truck removing material from unremediated Site 6, then driving it to the island’s midsection. They dumped the toxic dirt into Site 31’s 10-by-40-foot hole so poisonous it probably forced the Boys and Girls Club nearby completely out of their facility and off the island. In an April 2014 RAB meeting, Keith Forman announced, to our horror, that Site 31 was now so clean he was in negotiations with the club director to return the facility to the island.
Just as at Hunters Point, there is a failure to keep the public from Treasure Island’s radioactive areas. Tetra Tech-associated businesses pay small contracted companies to bring people desperate for jobs onto island worksites. They come without protective gear or knowledge they will clean dangerous toxins.
Tetra Tech’s sloppy remediation renders both sites radioactive
Bert Bowers, former Tetra Tech radiation safety officer at the Hunters Point Shipyard, told reporter Vicki Nguyen, “It has to do with the proper disposal of radioactive material. I wouldn’t feel comfortable living there having a yard where I could grow a garden. Absolutely not.
“I wouldn’t go there, I wouldn’t take my grandchildren there, I wouldn’t walk my dog there,” said Susan Andrews, a former radiation safety technician and, like Bowers, a whistleblower. . “It’s a beautiful area and it can be beautiful once it’s cleaned up, but it’s not being cleaned up right.”
At both Hunters Point and Treasure Island, apparently corners are being cut, and public health is at risk.
In Nguyen’s earlier report, New World Environmental’s Don Wadsworth stated he was hired to survey Treasure Island’s radioactive areas. “My job is to protect people and the environment, and it’s just not getting done.”
Kathryn Lundgren currently does not live on Treasure Island. John Stewart moved her temporarily while they detoxify her house in an attempt to remove toxic molds and asbestos. Because her children are sick, she doesn’t want to be forced to return.
Lennar, the developer given the right to develop both the shipyard and Treasure Island, tried to drive out Hunters Point residents to build on land too radioactive for human habitation. The Navy, city-state-federal power brokers and TIDA officials, with intent, poisoned countless residents including the current population of over 2,000 low- or no-income renters they enticed to Treasure Island.
Many believe these predator power brokers should use their billions to repay all rent invested over the course of their tenancy by residents at Hunters Point and Treasure Island, especially those that they made ill. Additionally, these opportunistic financial carnivores should provide to the people they misled equal or better residences where they and their children can build equity. They should be encouraged to pay for past and future medical bills and to fund future medical coverage for the adults and especially the children whom they may have permanently damaged.
The City: Do what I say, not what I do
Both Lundgren and Da Costa have pointed out that in San Francisco, the precautionary principle is the law – specifically, Chapter 1 of the San Francisco Environment Code.
The Environmental Code for the City and County of San Francisco, City Ordinance 115-05, which was written and championed in 2003 by San Francisco Board of Supervisors former President Aaron Peskin, states in Section 101, “All officers, boards, commissions, and departments of the City shall implement the Precautionary Principle in conducting the City and County’s affairs.” It affirms San Francisco’s leaders’ and citizens’ duty to prevent harm with anticipatory action.
Ahimsa Porter Sumchai, M.D., during her years as the Bay View’s health and environmental science editor, in her copious reporting and analysis on Hunters Point Shipyard contamination and corruption, noted that conflict of interest is illegal in California. California Government Code Section 87100 states: “No public official at any level of state or local government shall make, participate in making or in any way attempt to use his official position to influence a government decision in which he knows or has reason to know he has a financial interest.”
Lost Treasure Magazine - October 2018
Treasure hunters in Germany claim they have found hidden gold in an underground cavern that they are almost certain contains the Amber Room treasure, believed by some to have been stashed away by the Nazis in a secret mission in the dying days of World War II.
The discovery of an estimated two tonnes of gold was made at the weekend when electromagnetic pulse measurements located the man-made cavern 20 meters underground near the village of Deutschneudorf on Germany's border with the Czech Republic.
The team, which used heavy digging equipment, hasn't been inside the room but analysis of the electromagnetic test has led it to believe that the cavern contains gold.
"I'm well over 90 percent sure we have found the Amber Room," the mayor of Deutschneudorf, Heinz-Peter Haustein, who led the search, told SPIEGEL ONLINE. "The chamber is likely to be part of a labyrinth of storage rooms that the Nazis built here. I knew it was in this area. I just never knew exactly where."
Haustein, 53, is a member of Germany's federal parliament for the opposition liberal Free Democrats and has been searching for the Amber Room in the Ore Mountain region of eastern Germany for a decade.
"A friend told me before he died that the Nazis sent truckloads and trainloads of valuables to this area throughout the spring of 1945," he said. The excavation site is next to a long-abandoned railway station.
He said the coordinates for the chamber had come from fellow treasure hunter Christian Hanisch, who had found them when he was going through the documents of his father, a Luftwaffe signaller, after he died in October.
Find out how you can reprint this SPIEGEL ONLINE article."There was a note written next to the coordinates that the site contained Nazi party gold in 12-kilo bars. If the gold is there, the Amber Room will be too," said Haustein. He said he had dug in exactly the same spot a year ago but had not conducted any electromagnetic tests that time.
Haustein said it would probably take him until Easter to get into the chamber because it may contain booby traps and has to be secured by explosives experts and engineers.
"This has got too risky for us to do it alone. There could be mines down there." He said the regional authorities had agreed to help with the excavation.
The Amber Room, made of amber panels backed with gold leaf, was created by German and Russian craftsmen in the early 18th century and given by Prussia's King Friedrich Wilhelm I to his Russian ally Czar Peter the Great in 1716.
In October 1941, four months after the Germans invaded the Soviet Union, they disassembled it from the Catherine Palace near what was then Leningrad and brought it to East Prussia, to Königsberg -- now the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad. Part of it was exhibited in Königsberg Castle during the war. It disappeared in 1945.
There have been hundreds of theories about its fate. Some historians claim it was destroyed in bombing raids on Königsberg, others that it was lost at sea.
Over the years, various searches have failed to uncover it. Haustein said he had received many leads over the years that the Amber Room was hidden in crates along with a trove of other treasures somewhere in the network of copper, tin and silver mines of the Ore Mountains along what is now the German-Czech border.
He has spent tens of thousands of euros of his own money on the hunt.
"If we find the treasure it will probably be declared the property of the Federal Republic of Germany as legal successor to the Third Reich," said Haustein.
"It would be good if the state could hand it over to the Russians without preconditions and if the Russians could then hand over the art they looted from Germany. That would be a sign of national reconciliation. That's my goal."
Haustein he had received hundreds of emails in recent days since the find had become public, including some from Chile, Argentina and Bolivia, where many Nazis fled after the war.
One email he received on Tuesday contained a claim far-fetched enough to be amusing. "It said that the Nazis burnt a doppelgänger of Hitler outside the Berlin bunker and that the body of the real Hitler was buried with the Amber Room," Haustein says SkypeSetupFull"So who knows what else we may find"
