Things That Make You Go Hmm...Is the Gold at Fort Knox Radioactive? (And Does that Mean Goldfinger Was Real?)


FORT KNOX: Tainted With Radioactive Gold?

Now, excepting the sad story of the retiree from the plant, Mr. Harding, who was diagnosed with stomach cancer but denied a disability on the basis that his cancer was caused by eating "country ham" instead of walking through, and breathing, uranium hexaflouride (yes, folks, the corruption and stupidity in the USSA is that bad!), what I found interesting here was the irradiated gold story itself, and the slant it might provide as a high octane speculative explanation for all the high strangeness going on in the bullion markets, not to mention all that high strangeness with obfuscated amounts of gold bullion. (Not to mention that, once again, Ian Fleming's weird James Bond storyline plots seem to find yet another confirmation that the man, in some loose sense, was writing fiction based on fact. One can hear German actor Gerd Frobe even now, as James Bond is strapped spread-eagled to a table while an industrial laser calmly slices its easy way through the steel plate up to... well, you get the idea. Bond says, "Do you expect me to talk?" And Frobe aka Auric Goldfinger calmly responds, "No Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!")

According to the article, between 1964 and 1985, approximately 1 to 2 tons of gold was recovered from nuclear weapons during "reprocessing" at the plant:
"Now, according to the Department of Energy Report released December 21, 2000 on the Cold War ERA activities at the Paducah site
"In a separate report, DOE also investigated past metals recovery programs performed at the site from 1952 to 1986. The review included an extensive study of historical documents and interviews with current and retired employees. During this period, large quantities of steel, nickel, aluminum, copper, monel, cobalt, gold and silver were recovered at Paducah. 
"'Based on available records, DOE estimates that between 2,800 and 5,300 pounds of gold from retired nuclear weapon assemblies and scrap parts was recovered and shipped from the Paducah Plant from 1964 to 1985. The operations used to reclaim gold were kept separate from other materials and contaminated processes onsite, but were conducted in contaminated areas of two buildings. For much of this period, recovered gold was shipped to the U.S. Department of Treasury for refinement and reuse. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, some gold was sold to commercial reprocessors.' 
"So, there you have it.  The Department of Energy confirms in the released reports that 2,800-5,300 pounds of gold were recycled and shipped from the Paducah plant.  What is really interesting is the sentence that states, FOR MUCH OF THIS PERIOD, RECOVERED GOLD WAS SHIPPED TO THE U.S. TREASURY FOR REFINEMENT AND REUSE
"Now…. I don’t see how that sentence could be misconstrued as it was from an official government agency.  Of course, we don’t know how much gold was recast into bars and made it into the U.S. Gold Reserve, or how radioactive this gold may have been, but we do have clear evidence that it did occur. 
"If we consider that say 3-4,000 pounds of gold were recycled and made their way into the U.S. Gold Reserve, that’s upwards of (160) 400 oz bars sitting in Fort Knox or sold to some POOR CENTRAL BANK SLOB… who has no idea the gold they received may indeed be glowing." (All emphases in the article or added in the original article).
