Preface

 

 

To whom it may concern,

 

When reviewing this report I suggest that one applies an open mind to its contents, for without any doubt, the discovery made by Mango Metals Partnership will be a pivotal point in our social and economic history.

 

As we near the end of this century, many new advancements in physics are being incubated. One area of obscured research is the formation of new elements using low energy nuclear transmutation. In general terms this translates to having the ability of changing one metal to another. Yes, the ability to produce gold and other valuable metals from metals of a lesser value.

 

One could use the term "alchemy" and would not be far from the truth as it relates to the cargo of this unknown ship of the 1800’s.

 

For some reason the Spanish decided to carry over 40,000 pounds of material from Central or South America back to their Country, which when reviewed by science in its true singular sense has the appearance of common limestone. This material when tested in its singular state by respected laboratories shows that no intrinsic value exists to this elusive cargo. However, when this material is properly prepared and mixed with lesser metals such as lead, a transformation appears and macro quantities of gold and platinum are produced.

 

One may call it what they wish, but the reality of this discovery is so frightening real that if misused, could cause the economic structure of our society to collapse. One would question this by asking -- "How much gold could one produce from this cargo?" That is the incorrect question, for the importance is not in how much of this cargo is under the ocean, but can it be replicated?

 

The somber answer to this question is -- yes. It is for this reason that I pray that this document remains intact and is not copied or circulated to third parties.

Introduction

The Seven Steps to Church

 

It is a well established fact that the Europeans have been advanced in the art of metallurgy for centuries. The Spanish are no exception to this fact.

 

Having said this, the Spanish developed a series of protocols that allowed for the accelerated collection of precious metals by blending selective ore bodies. Was this the start of metallurgical science, or the foundation for low energy nuclear transmutation (alchemy)?

 

The Seven Steps to Church is a translation from the title of a Spanish process which utilized seven steps in the formation of precious metals, with the emphasis being gold. What one will find of interest if they study the process is that even the Spaniards recorded that during the process, they would not see the presence of any precious metals until the second step. And from that point forward the gold would appear to manifest itself.

 

Did they find the elixir which caused the formation of precious metals? At this time I would have to say, without question, the answer is yes. To understand the mechanisms involved, the following report provides the fundamentals of how the 40,000 pounds of material discovered by the Mango Metal Partnership plays an intrinsic role as part of the Seven Steps to Church.

The Following Report

Economic and Physical Assessment of Mango Metal Partnership’s Caribbean Salvage

is the Property of Mango Metal Partnership

___________________________________________________

Prepared by Joe E. Champion

September 1996

 

Scope

 

The Mango Metal Partnership requested a concise report to determine the deposition of the material salvaged from an approximate 100 year old wreckage of one or more vessels in the Bahamas. The material consists of various types of metallic artifacts, barrels of a gray siliceous metallic matter and black rocks. It is my understanding that the material was found in less than 50 feet of water and at points throughout history the material could have been exposed to air.

 

Without stating, there are always estranged stories and myths surrounding archeological finds, and these myths seem to become enhanced when a shipwreck is involved. The particulars surrounding this discovery have until this point been embellished with an aura of mysticism and unknowns that have cause untold mental anguish on its discoverer and people associated with the disposition of the cargo for the past six years. Hence the purpose here is to separate the facts from fiction regarding this discovery.

Return to Table of Contents

Physical History

 

Since the purpose of this report is to determine the physical properties of the discovery, I will forgo any attempt to report its discovery and/or recovery.

 

As mentioned the discovery is divided into three general categories, which are further defined as follows:

 

 

  1. Metallic Artifacts
  2.  

    1. Cannons
    2.  

    3. Cannon balls
    4.  

    5. Trunnions, fittings and associated metallic pieces
    6.  

    7. Assorted metallic bars

     

  3. Gray material
  4.  

    1. Approximately 140 barrels with an average weight of 400 pounds of gray siliceous material.

     

  5. Black rocks
  6.  

    1. Approximately four tons of a siliceous rock which is not indicative of the local geological formation.

 

Since 1990, fractions from each of the prementioned have been analyzed by various technologies and have indicated everything from millions of dollars of value, to the only the historical value of similar artifacts.

Analytical History

 

The following is based on documentation supplied by Mr. David Econopuly a principle of Mango Metal Partnership.

 

December 1990 -- Vern McMahon, Ph.D. of Auro Research Laboratory tested an unknown bar from the metallic artifacts. The results obtained by electro-magnetic assay(?) said that the bar contained ~37.81% by weight of rhodium metal.

 

January 1992 -- Mr. C.W. Ammens reported that the bars contained an average of 38% rhodium metal. Type of analysis was not released.

 

July 1992 -- Mr. Dayne Chastian, an independent assayer and refiner reported the following:

 

 

 

 

No mention was made as to the type of analytical procedure utilized in the report. However, in a subsequent telephone conversation prior to this report, Mr. Chastian reported that he used standard digestion technologies with resin collection (final collection in lead), collection in copper and electro-digestion (also an industrial standard process) and direct scorification and cupellation.

 

September 1992 -- Mr. Zig Bremmer and associates from Germany, all of Bremmer Technology Corporation, Scottsdale, Arizona reported the following:

 

 

Here one can observe a repeatability of analysis. However, please note that the samples were prepared by scorification in lead then analyzed by a Direct Coupled Plasma Electron Spectrometer (DCP).

 

In an explanation letter Mr. Bremmer noted that the platinum was in a form of clusters and could not be considered as "free metals." He continued by stating, if you want to break the metallic clusters it is necessary to use Bremmer Technology.

 

September 1992 -- The Institute for Spectrographic Research reported that samples from the cannon and cannon ball were analyzed by X-ray florescence and they found a high concentration of gold and the platinum metals.

 

 

 

November 1993 -- Analysis by an unnamed laboratory reported the qualitative presence of elements as follows:

 

 

 

August 1996 -- American Society for Applied Technology located in Silver City, New Mexico performed various assays on a bar, cannon and precipitates (?). Using standard metallurgical fire assay techniques they reported no precious metals by cuppellation. Following is a Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) report on the cannon:

 

 

August 1996 -- In a separate document the American Society for Applied Technology reported that a sample from the black rocks contained +99.0% silver.

 

Even though additional historical documentation may appear in the future, this report will not be amended, for this data establishes the fundamentals..

Summary of Analytical History

 

In an attempt not to dwell on the past, I find myself forced to discuss some of the anomalies. The reason will soon become obvious, for this history offers a variety of clues as to the potential worth and understanding of this estranged cargo.

 

Select analyses showed high values of gold and platinum metals, while others claimed the material to be basic iron. However, after talking to many of the assayers, it became obvious that there was a continuity of precious metals being reported, or, as in some cases, not reported.

 

In each case where precious metals were reported, an anomaly existed, the material was mixed with a base metal. In the majority of the cases it was lead. This important observation is the key into understanding the facts behind this esoteric discovery.

 

Physical Properties of Gray Material

 

The gray material was originally packaged in wooden kegs weighing ~400 pounds each. Physical observation of the material shows syreations of different colors ranging from tan to gray to white.

 

The material factures easily and is pulverized without effort. Also, it readily dissociates in HNO3 (nitric)and HCl (hydrochloric) acids.

 

An important point that should be recorded is its average density is 2.8gms/cm3.

 

Direct melting temperature is greater than 1,000oC, which is within the realm of normality due to the high calcium content.

Return to Table of Contents

Protocol for Scientific Investigation

 

To ascertain the actual properties of the gray material, a protocol was established. This protocol may appear redundant to previous data presented in the Analytical History but are necessary to establish a true baseline. The studies are on gray material supplied by Mr. David Econopuly which was pulverized and homogeneously mixed. An exception to this was one solid piece was sent for analysis as to determine the different fractions between colors by electron microscopy.

 

Following is the exact protocol:

 

    1. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
    2.  

    3. X-ray Flourenence (XRF)
    4.  

    5. Inductive Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS)
    6.  

    7. Standard Fire Assay
    8.  

    9. Inquarting of material with lead and electrodigestion
    10.  

    11. Inquarting the material with silver and electrodigestion
    12.  

    13. Inquarting the material with mercury and retorting

 

The purpose of these tests may not appear logical at this time. However, its purpose is to demonstrate whether precious metal values exist within the material, or if the material acts like a catalyst to cause the formation of precious metals from base metals, or if the previous analysis were totally erroneous.

Return to Table of Contents

Scientific Findings

 

The thrust of this investigation was to determine if any internsic value existed to the 40,000 pounds of gray material recovered from the ocean floor. Additional tests accomplished on drillings obtained from the cannons which were found in the proximity proved to be of great scientific interest and economic value.

 

Spectroscopic, Microscopic, X-ray Diffraction and General Chemistry Analyses

 

In any study it is important to establish a baseline. Therefore following standard scientific protocol, I opted to establish the baseline by using non-invassive testing procedures. The obvious reason being from the studies completed in the past it appears that everytime estranged materials (e.g. lead) are added to this matrix there is always a formation of precious metals.

Earthtech International - Scott Little’s Baseline Report

 

Analysis of gray material pulverized to <200 mesh

 

Si (reported as %SiO2) 45%

Ca (reported as %CaO) 48%

MgO 6.0%

Ti (as TiO2) 0.7%

Fe (as Fe2O3) 5.8%

Mn 0.8%

Cu 0.04%

Br 0.03%

Sr 0.04%

Pb 0.05%

 

There was also about .03% Zr and possibly .01% Zn. There was no sign of Hf, Pt, Au, Ag, Sn, Sb, Mo, etc but they could have been present at <100ppm and they would have escaped notice.

 

This was obtained on a $100,000 system with very good sensitivity and excellent capabilities. We used standardless FP (fundamental parameters) to come up with these quantitative numbers with only one unknown sample. The values given above are within a factor of two of the actual values.

 

Mark Hugo’s Spectroscopic Analysis

 

Using a X-ray Diffraction system manufactured by Texas Nuclear, Mr. Hugo reported the following:

 

The Gray Material physically appears to have two constituents; a light tan material and darker black particles. By gravity separation, I analyzed each fraction. The tan material appears to be primarily tin with the black material being zirconium. The system was calibrated before testing and rechecked after the tests to insure its accuracy.

 

Note:

 

The material tested by Mr. Hugo is a split from the material analyzed by Mr. Higgin’s and Mr. Little. At this time, I have no logical concept why this testing procedure varies from the norm.

 

Atlantic Pacific Trust - William Higgin’s Baseline Report

 

Qualitative analysis utilizing a Vreeland Spectroscope showed the presence of Ca, Mg and Si as the major elements present. Iron was present and recorded as a minor element.

 

Detection limits of this instrument is reported at 0.3%.

 

William Giffin’s Baseline Report

 

Microscopic and chemical analyses were completed on the gray material and drillings supplied from the cannons. Following is his determinations:

 

Gray Material

 

The gray material is comprised of metallic spheres ranging from a sub-micron to micron in diameter. It can be said with certainty that this material underwent some type of refining or processing prior to being placed on the unknown vessel.

 

My first thoughts were that it might be a refinement of calcium for use in the production of flexible steel for weapons such as swords. This was in high demand during the nineteenth century. However, I must state that this material was probably of some other purpose due to amount of silicon shown by the various analytical assays. Silicon associated with iron causes the steel to be brittle and the technology during the era under evaluation did not have the techniques to remove silicon from steel ores.

 

The material rapidly effervesces in mild acids, showing the presence of significant calcium, either in the oxide or carbonate state.

 

In a concluding statement regarding the physical observations of the gray material, it can be stated with certainty that whatever the intended use of the material was, it was not just mineral from a geological ore deposit. The material was processed (probably by man) prior to being placed in the barrels for shipment.

 

Drillings from Cannon

 

Drillings from samples titled "Cannons" appeared to be a cold forged iron. The iron content was verified by various spectroscopic means prior to my review of the material.

 

Microscopic studies show that the iron was cold forged, that is to say, they were formed at extremely low temperatures and it would be questionable if they would maintain their form upon operation.

 

No intrinsic value other than the presence of iron can be observed from these samples at this time.

 

Wet Chemistry Analysis of Gray Matter -- Joe Champion

 

In an attempt to finalized the base constituents of the gray material the following test was accomplished to determine if any precious metals could be detected.

 

The material was dissolved in aqua regia and colorimetry tests were accomplished with SnCl2, NH4Cl, NaOH, KI, and Thiourea. With the use of the prementioned reagents, presence of Au, Pt and any of the associated platinum group metals could be detected if they were present in quantities greater than 1.0 ppm.

 

The test was conclusive, for none of the precious metal groups were detected. This battery of tests confirms previous observations as to the lack of precious metal content within the material.

Fire Assay and Extractive Metallurgical Tests of Gray Material

Western Precious Metals -- Ed Horton

 

Mr. Ed Horton performed a scorification and cuppelation of 0.5 grams of the gray material. The ending result showed no detection of Au, or the platinum group metals.

 

The purpose of such a minuscule test will be discussed later.

Bill Giffin and Joe Champion

 

A standard fire assay using scorification methods outlined by C. W. Ammen’s was accomplished. The following are the results:

 

    1. 0.0g Gray Material + 100g assay lead => no detectable Ag
    2. 1.0g Gray Material + 100g assay lead => ~15 milligrams Ag
    3. 10.0g Gray Material + 100g assay lead => ~15 milligrams Ag
    4. 25.0g Gray Material + 100g assay lead => ~15 milligrams Ag

 

As one can easily observe, the amount of Ag produced was independent to the amount of Gray Material. However, it is interesting to note that the "Blank Test" produced no Ag, indicating that the Pb was indeed Ag free. Numerous analogies could be formed from such, but at this time we will not concern ourselves with speculations.

Transmutative Tests Performed Using the Gray Material

 

In this section I cover the subject of how this material interacts with other material as a catalyst to produce precious metals. It has been determined by historical records that the Spanish were masters in the art of combining different ore bodies in an attempt to produce copious amounts of precious metals, with gold being their primary target.

 

Barry Merriman and Bill Higgins

 

Under specific instructions, Dr. Barry Merriman with the assistance of Mr. Bill Higgins performed a transmutative test on the Gray Material.

 

Following was the procedures utilized:

 

They thoroughly mixed 100 grams of lead and 20 grams of ultra pure assay silver. They heated this for a one hour period at 1,800oF in a clay scorification dish. They then removed the dish from the furnace and slowly sprinkled 1.0 grams of the Gray Material onto the surface. The material was once again placed into the furnace for an additional 2.0 hours.

 

The material was removed and poured into a mold and allowed to cool. Then the material was cuppelled to remove any excess lead. The ending bead weight was 19.5 grams.

 

The material was then parted in a 10% HNO3 (nitric acid) solution which produced a black sponge weighing slightly under 100 milligrams. This sponge was returned to Mr. Higgins who again parted the material and annealed it to verify the ending product to be gold.

Bill Giffin and Joe Champion

 

Using procedures as established by the historical reports and previous laboratory findings, it was determined that replication of the Spanish process was necessary to determine the value of the material as it would relate to that point in history. Technical information regarding this process can be found in Twentieth Century Alchemy and Producing Precious Metals at Home.

 

To develop a protocol, I felt that by replicating a lead/silver mineral would be adequate for the testing of the material. Following is the exact procedures observed from two tests.

Dallas Testing -- Dan R. York

 

A replication of the transmutive qualities of the material was provide by Dan York in Dallas, Texas. The purpose of this testing was to assist in the validation of the findings from Arizona and California.

 

Gray Material Transmutation Test

 

The following protocol was established for the transmutive testing of the Gray Material:

 

200 grams lead

20 grams Gray Material

20 grams silver

20 grams borax (decahydrate)

20 grams zinc

2 grams magnesium

 

The above material, excluding the zinc and magnesium, was mixed and furnaced for thirty minutes at 2,000oF. At that time it was removed from the furnace and the zinc, magnesium and Gray Material was carefully sprinkled onto the surface of the molten mass.

 

The material was placed into the furnace for an additional hour. At this time, the material was poured into a mold.

 

The metal was them placed back in the furnace with additional lead and flux. No additional silver, zinc ormagnesium was added.

 

The ending metal weight was 365.0 grams.

 

A representative 11.3 gram sample was removed and cuppelled. The ending bead weight was 2.0 grams. This equates to a 17.70% ratio of precious metals to lead. Using this number, the total value of precious metals within the 365.0 gram bar would be 64.60 grams, or an increase in precious metal above the original silver inquart content by 323.0%.

 

 

Baseline Transmutation Test

 

The following protocol was established for the baseline transmutive testing:

 

Before beginning, allow me to state that the importance of this test is to establish a fundamental increase in the known transmutive qualities when the gray material is applied.

200 grams lead

20 grams silver

20 grams borax (decahydrate)

20 grams zinc

2 grams magnesium

 

The above material, excluding the zinc and magnesium, was mixed and furnaced for thirty minutes at 2,000oF. At that time it was removed from the furnace and the zinc and magnesium powder was carefully sprinkled onto the surface of the molten mass.

 

The material was placed into the furnace for an additional two hours. At this time, the material was poured into a mold.

 

The metal was them placed back in the furnace with an additional 200 gramslead and flux. No additional silver, zinc or magnesium was added.

 

The ending metal weight was 191.0 grams.

 

A representative 11.2 gram sample was removed and cuppelled. The ending bead weight was 1.6 grams. This equates to a 14.29% ratio of precious metals to lead. Using this number, the total value of precious metals within the 191.0 gram bar would be 27.29 grams, or an increase in precious metal content above the original silver inquart by 136.42%.

 

Transmutative Tests Performed Using the Drillings from Cannons

 

In an attempt to understand if economic worth existed to the material constituents of the cannons associated with the gray material and to attempt to understand if the observations by past assayers had merit, a procedure was applied 1.0 gram of drillings supplied by Mr. Econopuly.

Joe Champion and Bill Giffin

 

Since iron has been used in various assay procedures in the past years, it was determined that if we were to mix the drillings from the cannons with lead and use an oxidizer to cause an ignition of the iron, it would be possible to observe transmutation of the iron into precious metals.

 

This was accomplished by mixing 1.0 gram of the drillings from the cannon with 100 grams of lead. This matrix was heated to 1,800oF and removed from the furnace. Approximately 5.0 grams of an oxidizer, NaClO4 (sodium chlorate) was sprinkled onto the surface of the molten mass.

 

The material was returned to the furnace for one hour, removed and poured into a mold. The lead dore was then placed into a cuppel. A 1.4 gram precious metal bead was recovered and by colorimetric testing proved to have gold, platinum and palladium.

 

In addition to the above transmutive analysis of the cannon material, a 1.0 gram sample of the material was dissolved in aqua regia and was tested using standard colorimetric testing procedures for the presence of gold and the platinum metals. The results of this testing procedure was totally negative. Hence, this confirms precious analysis that the cannon is nothing but a specialty iron that when excited is a trigger for transmutation.

 

Transmutative Tests Performed from Synthesized Gray Material

The major question comes from the point of whether the Gray Material holds an esoteric secret, or if it is only a composition of standard chemicals which can be synthetically produced. The purpose of the following tests is to identify the value of the material.

 

Synthesized Gray Material Test

 

To synthesize the Gray Material, a compound consisting of SiO2 (silicon oxide), MgO (magnesium oxide) and NaHCO3 (sodium carbonate) was selected. Following is the observed results:

 

Smelt I

 

200 g Pb

50 g Ag

20 g Zn

6 g SiO2

7 g MgO

7 g NaHCO3

10 g Borax

 

Furnaced for 90 minutes

 

Products: 259 g Dore

25 g Slag

 

Smelt II

 

259 g Dore (From Smelt I)

25 g Slag (From Smelt I)

100 g PbO

25 g K2CO3

10 g Reducer (flour)

50 g Borax

8 g SiO2

 

Furnaced for 90 minutes

 

Products: 328 g Dore

84 g Slag

 

Cuppellation Test

 

14.81 g of the lead dore from Smelt II was removed and cuppelled. The resulting bead weight was 2.03 grams, or 13.71%.

 

Equating this to the total dore, there would be 44.95 g of combined precious metals present.

 

Smelt III

 

328 g Dore (From Smelt II)

30 g Slag (From Smelt II)

120 g PbO

30 g K2CO3

15 g Reducer (flour)

60 g Borax

10 g SiO2

 

Furnaced for 90 minutes

 

Products: 402 g Dore

123 g Slag

 

Cuppellation Test

 

20.6 g of the lead dore from Smelt III was removed and cuppelled. The resulting bead weight was 4.02 grams, or 19.55%.

 

Equating this to the total dore, there would be 78.6 g of combined precious metals present.

 

Transmutation Tests using Gray Material with Gold Inquart

 

If one has paid close attention to the findings up to this point, it is obvious that the Gray Material has intrinsic qualities for the acceleration of a nuclear transmutation. Also, since one of the major anomalies observed has been the formation of an increase in silver, it stands to reason that one would question whether or not an increase in gold would be observed if gold was used in lieu of silver.

 

In the following process, we inquarted 8.4 grams of gold into the starting matrix without any silver. From the process we yielded 10.3 grams of gold from step one with an additional 19.3 grams of gold, platinum and silver from step two.

 

Smelt I

 

200 g Pb

8.4 g Au

20 g Gray Material

10 g Borax

20 g NaClO4

 

Furnaced fort 120 minutes

 

Products: 120 g Dore

84 g Slag

 

Cuppellation Test

 

The total lead dore from Smelt I was removed and cuppelled. The resulting bead weight was 10.3 grams, or 122.62%.

 

Due to the physical observation of the cuppel, it was determined that enormous losses occurred. The cuppel was reduced to a powder and and assayed using the following procedures.

 

Smelt II

 

15 g of cuppel (127 grams total)

100 g PbO

10 g Reducer (flour)

100 g Borax

Furnaced for 90 minutes

 

Products: 64 g Dore

132 g Slag

 

Cuppellation Test

 

The total lead dore from Smelt II was removed and cuppelled. The resulting bead weight was 2.28 grams.

 

Equating this to the total cuppel, there would be 19.3 g of combined precious metals present.

Summary of Scientific Findings

 

General

 

Up to this point I have attempted to deliver an unbiased opinion as to the Mango Metal Partnership‘s discovery. However, it is obvious that one would have to draw the conclusion that the estranged cargo carried by the unknown ship will have a great effect on history as we now understand it.

 

As observed in the Second Low Energy Nuclear Exchange Conference held in September, 1996 by Dr. John O’M Bockris in College Station, Texas, science as a body is starting to observe that elements can be changed without the need of high energy physics. Dr. George Miley from the University of Illinois and Dr. Minzuno from the Hokkaido University in Japan presented papers on their observation of low energy nuclear transmutation. This is a sign of the changing times in science.

 

To better understand why this phenomena occurs, I have presented abstracts of different papers which have been prepared for publication on this subject. However, before entering the mechanics of how such feats can occur, I would like to share the following real life event of a respected research.

 

Dr. Stephen H. Emmens

 

Argentaurum Laboratory

20 Central Avenue

Staten Island, New York City, U.S.A.

 

In 1897 Dr. Emmens self published a manuscript titled "Argentaurana" to present his story of his trials and tribulations over an alleged new element which he thought was the intermediate matter from which Ag and Au are formed. In his method, low temperature and high pressure hammering were employed with such success that he produced some 670 ounces of GOLD bullion which was sold to the United States Assay Office in New York City. This book includes the complete correspondence with Sir William Crookes F.R.S. and the New York Herald detailing principles and technical details for those who want to replicate this utilizing magnetic cooling and magnetostrictive ultrasonic hammering. For those interested a copy of this book resides in the British Museum.

Headlines --- New York Herald

Sunday, February 26, 1899

 

"This Man makes Gold and sells it to the United States Mint"

 

"Is Dr. Emmens a Modern Rosicrucian?"

 

"Calls Product Argentaurana"

 

"Uncle Sam has been buying his Bricks for two years"

 

"Is it a Golden Keely Secret?"

 

Included with these Headlines were large illustrations showing the innards of Dr. Emmens Laboratory.

 

A quote from the New York Herald follows:

 

"Dr. Emmens is certainly a man of more than ordinary education and scientific knowledge. He has written books and talked well. At the same time few people can believe in any process for changing silver into gold by chemistry and machinery.

 

"Dr. Emmens says he makes gold out of Mexican silver dollars, so Bryan’s silver is only a disguise for a limited amount of gold. Dr. Emmens unquestionably has a head for business, as the Mexican dollar costs only forty-eight cents.

 

"It is necessary to have a little gold -- some metallic seed, as it were -- as a ‘starter’ when you manufacture gold by the Emmens process. Every Mexican silver dollar contains gold and copper among other things.

 

"Besides such a scheme as this for turning Mexican dollars into gold where is the silver craze? In the great campaign a man voted for Bryan expecting to go home and find 640 acres of land and a mule behind the door bearing Jefferson’s monogram. In Dr. Emmens campaign its all gold and no mule."

 

 

 

This is a brief insight into a man we know little of. However, I will continue to post different aspects of his work as they advance. In the meantime allow me to leave you with one of my favorite passages from Dr. Emmens:

 

"The theory and fact of transmutation is more important to the practical welfare of the human race than has been any scientific question from the dawn of philosophy down to the present time. Gold is the greatest of all influences that effect the progress of mankind; and if gold can indeed be produced at will the whole future of ourselves, our children and our children’s children cannot fail to be profoundly modified. When, therefore, the leaders of science pronounce themselves on this subject, the public will do well to weigh and consider their utterance instead of blindly accepting them as dictates of recognized authority. This is why I have set out by implying that the leaders of science are more likely to be wrong than right in their assertions as to the "Laws of Nature.""

 

"If the implication rested upon my mere word or opinion, I should myself be insufferably arrogant in thus making light of such men as Lord Kelvin and his many brilliant fellow philosophers of nowadays. I am, however, a mere recorder."

 

Point being, even though people in the past could not explain the reason of what was occurring, it is obvious to me that they were an observation of synthetic production of precious metals, or more formally recognized as Low Energy Nuclear Transmutation.

Other than that, I find myself hard pressed for words................
