If Auric Goldfinger launched a raid to steal the gold in Fort Knox today he’d be sorely disappointed. The 147.3 million ounces of gold that was once stored in the United States Bullion Depository is long gone. The gold bars were gradually moved to the deep underground vaults of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York–a task that spanned years and began during the Nixon administration.

Although today the federal government still claims that about Some 147 million troy ounces of gold still resides in Fort Knox and another 220 million troy ounces rests safely in the huge sub-basement vault of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, in actuality vitually all the gold was transferred to the Fed long ago.

Despite the fact that the United States Army no longer protects the nation’s gold at the Fort Knox military base, the armywhich still maintains the U.S. Army Armor School on siteconducts tours and seems quite open and affable.

Don’t let their friendly façade fool you: the security maintained on the base is among the highest in the world. Fort Knox may have more military guards than any other military base doesno matter the country or army.

Why? If the gold is long gone what are they guarding?

The answer, according to some researchers, is so stunning it seems like a scenario penned by a desperate Hollywood screenwriter after an all night binge.

Fort Knox is no longer the nation’s gold depository, instead it’s become the nations’s depository of exotic extraterrestrial technology harvested from crashed UFOs by grim-faced black ops teams.

The Fort Knox conundrum

Fort Knoxmade famous for its gold and by Ian Fleming’s Goldfingerwas created during 1918 as a military camp. It’s named after U.S. Army Major General Henry Knox, the first U.S. Secretary of War.

The famous gold depository building (that most people think of when the name Fort Knox comes up), was completed in 1936 during the height of the Depression years.

Most people are unaware that besides gold, the depository has been the home of many famous artifacts including the precious Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, the original Articles of Confederation, Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg address, and his second inaugural address. For a time three priceless volumes of the world’s first printed book, the Gutenberg Bible, was also kept in the vaults for safekeeping.

The history of the valuables the vaults have stored does not, however, end there. During World War Two when Great Britain was under heavy attack from the Nazis, the Magna Carta was sent there to keep it out of Hitler’s hands in case England fell.

For many decades mostly gold was housed there, but after the U.S. abandoned the gold standard, the gold was moved and the depository stood basically emptyuntil a new use was discovered for it: a storage facility for some of the nation’s most sensitive and bizarre secrets: captured or retrieved alien artifacts.

Pentagon officer Lieutenant Colonel Philip Corso

The Corso connection

The UFO community was stunned when retired military officer, Lieutenant Colonel Philip Corso, with a record of honorable and signifigant accomplishment confirmed three things: the Roswell crash happened, aliens are real, and a special Pentagon office responsible for analyzing foreign technology had alien technology in its possession.


In the book, The Day After Roswell, Corso claimed he had access to alien technology harvested from a 1947 flying saucer crash near Roswell, New Mexico. His responsibility at the Pentagon, claimed Corso, was to pass certain technology on to private industry (mostly defense contractors), with the aim to reverse engineer it and incorporate it into the matrix of U.S. know-how.

Alleged schematic of extraterrestrial technology

The 1997 book created a firestorm in the press and amongst UFO researchers. Corso was praised and attacked, sometimes almost in the same breath.

Alien technology allegedy was retrieved from flying saucer crashes

Corso went on to assert that major industries evolved from some of the ET technology and helped to create such landmark inventions as fiber optics, high-energy lasers, microcircuitry, and advance particle beam weapons. The entire list is long and jaw-dropping.

Alien technology the basis for many late 20th Century inventions?

After Corso retired, the office in the Pentagon was closed and the alien technology (which at first just filled a file cabinet in Corso’s office) grew until the Pentagon decided to move it all to a storage facility that had secure safekeeping. According to some researchers’ theories, that secure location was the almost empty vaults at Fort Knox.

According to some, alien inventory keeps growing

Growing inventory

The alien artifacts, machinery and technology didn’t end, however, with the Pentagon shipment. Evidence exists that more technology was moved from other bases, most notably Groom Lake, Nevadahome of Area 51 fame.

Convoys like this transported ET tech to Fort Knox

Evidence for shipments of alien technology from Area 51 to the high security depository at Fort Knox is threefold: records of military transport convoys that left both Area 51 and Nellis Air Force Base carrying secret matériel inside trucks or under tarps on flatbeds to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio.

Wright-Patterson has long been a suspected hub of UFO secrecy all the way back to the days of the Roswell crash.

But the alien matériel and sections of actual craft was not kept on the base for very long. Eyewitness reports tracked new convoys leaving Wright-Patterson. Destination: Fort Knox.

Claimed to be a Navy drone sans wings, there’s no place for wings to attach

Instead of protecting gold, the army personnel now guard something much more precious: advanced technology from one or more alien civilizations that the U.S. government has obtained from crash sitesor possibly even from some kind of trade-off with ETs.

As the theory goes, technology that has been figured out no longer needs to be kept at the research labs or temporary storage facilities where it was kept. On the other hand, no one wanted to destroy the original technology that had been successfully reverse engineered. Instead, a secure facility was sought, and the perfect placecontrolled by the militarywas Fort Knox.

The technology is not kept in the vaults that once stored gold bullion. Instead, the secrets from the stars are almost literally buried deep under the Depository building in a network of temperature-controlled subterranean chambers far below the actual vault.

How secure is Fort Knox?

The depository facility is probably one of the most secure places in the world. What is kept in the vault (and beneath the vault) cannot be accessed by anyone without the highest clearance. No visitors are permitted to the classified building that houses the vault and absolutely no exceptions are made.

Four star generals are not permitted inside the facility. Even the President of the United States is not granted access by the military keepers of the vault. To enter the depository the president must send a formal letter to the Department of the Treasury and to the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff at the Pentagon. Upon review, it will then be decided whether or not to grant the request of the president.

Note the operating word request. Even the Constitutional Commander-in-Chief cannot enter unless granted access. The last president to actually visit the depository was Dwight D. Eisenhower during the 1950s. His administration is also the last that conducted an audit of the U.S. Gold Reserve.

It’s claimed by those in the know that the depository building, the vaults it contains, and the subterranean chambers the facility sits above are more secure than Area 51, Wright-Patterson AFBeven the White House itself.

With 30,000 troops stationed around the facility 24-hours a day, the security is certainly high enough to guard old alien fiber optics cut from the interiors of extraterrestrial spacecraftor even a couple smaller flying saucers.

Yes, if Goldfinger broke into the place now, wouldn’t he be surprised?

    It’s possible there are still some gold plated tungsten bars left in Ft. Knox.
