The question which one should ask after review of his research
is not whether one can produce precious metals by low energy
nuclear transmutation but to what level will this technology

"treasure" is comprised of two types of materials:
Silver-colored metallic artifacts such as cannons, cannonballs,
dore bars, ingots and other assorted objects; and a grayish-tan
dry chemical, hardened by almost 200 years of salt-water submersion
into the shape of the wooden barrels that had housed it before
rotting away. The artifacts, at first glance, appeared to be
simply metal and a limestone compound. But oddly enough very
few people could agree on exactly what they were used for, or
for that matter, even what they were made of. That was one of
the first oddities that caught my attention after my early meeting
with Michael. It seemed to me that metal is metal, often made
up of different elements in combination, but metal none-the-less.
So why couldn't our 20th Century science conclusively identify
the metals that were produced almost 200 years ago by more primitive
scientists then ours? According to Dayne Chastain a retired
metallurgist in Oklahoma it was because "The Spanish could
do amazing things with metals but their technology has been
lost", but I was not to talk to Dayne for yet another month."
the hours passed a stream of documents continued to flow into
my hands. One that especially caught my interest was written
on the letterhead of Dayne Chastain and Associates that took
the figures from the German Institute Assay and multiplied the
per ounce value of each of the elements times the number of
ounces in the 2,900 pound carronade. The total value on the
precious metals came to $13,612,954.00. That was a lot of money
for a cannon and I was beginning to see why Michael remained
interested in selling his artifacts despite the fact that he
was unsuccessful for 6 years."
document was on the letterhead of Bremer Technology Corporation
located in Las Veas, Nevada. This was addressed to "Mr.
Fisher". I had heard of Mel Fisher through a couple of
TV specials and news reports about him, so his involvement in
the project caught my attention.
The first paragraph began "We just completed the analysis
of the three samples submitted by Mr. Dayne Chastain. As you
see the values measured of the sample #1(Cannon Ball) and sample
#2(Cannon) show very high values of Gold and the Platinum Group
Elements. The values of the Gold and the Platinum Group are
probably not as free metals present and therefore not alloyed
with base metals. To break the bond of those clusters(molecules)
it is necessary to use the Bremer Technology which will do exactly
that." There was mention of something called an "Electron-beam
furnace", but at that point I had no idea what that was."
I got them from the water I set them in my yard. I asked my
Haitian gardener to clean them off and went to town. When I
came back I couldn't believe my eyes…he had gouged these holes
in them. I yelled at him 'What did you do to my cannons?' He
replied, 'I didn't do nothin', Michael, I just tap dis wit'
my machete and pieces fall off.'" Michael explained to
me that the craters seemed to be filled with some sort of metallic
putty to fair out the cannons so that they were straight, fair
This was starting to get extremely interesting to me. The Platinum
Cannons that Michael had may not have been cannons at all, but
large chunks of metal that were made to look like cannons. Were
the cannonballs just chunks of metal made to look like cannonballs?
The hatch? Add to this 100 barrels of a limestone-like material
which Michael claimed were laced with precious metals and some
pretty interesting theories were developed."
""There is no place in our salvage license that states
we must sell our artifacts by auction.", Patsy began. Minister
Allen didn't appear to have much interest in the subject so
she asked him pointedly "Have you read the license terms?"
The Minister replied very matter of factly, "No."
and for all intents and purposes, that was the end of the Patsy's
meeting with him.
Well, at least we knew that even if we did find a buyer for
the carronade, we would still not be able to sell it. We were
not deterred as we half expected some resistance from the government
and so decided that we would have to find an alternative plan
if the artifacts contained the precious metal content we believed
them to have.
Michael who is as patriotic towards his country and as honest
as a man can be was being pushed to the limits and I believe
his statement to me surprised even himself. "If we find
a buyer, we will sell it to them…even if we have to smuggle
it out." With that settled we would continue our search
to ascertain the value of the artifacts."
the samples were sent off, we eagerly awaited the results. The
first phone call from Walter was a complete surprise that left
me completely baffled and just a bit worried.
"Congratulations!", Walter began, "You are the
owners of the first Atomic Cannon!". When I asked him what
he meant, he told me that his assay indicated that the samples
that we sent had him contained Uranium. I was expecting positive
results from him, but this was a little too positive."
""Hudson knew that this "nothing could be seen,
felt, tasted and weighed. It had to be something and he was
determined to find out what it was. In the course of his research
he found a paper from the Soviet Academy of Sciences stating
that a proper spectroscopic analysis required a 300 second burn
instead of the 15 second burn used in the United States. Utilizing
the Soviet technique of fractional vaporization, Hudson discovered
that his sample contained the elements palladium, platinum,
ruthenium, rhodium, iridium and osmium. Even more astounding
was his discovery that each of the nonmetallic elemental forms
was a superconductor, a substance which allows an electric current
to flow without resistance even the absence of a continually
went on to talk about a man by the name of Dr. Merkle who was
producing an organic crystaline compound that was being used
by people who had debilitating diseases such as diabetes and
heart disease. He mentioned his brother who was having great
success in the battling of his diabetes using this crystal formula,
but emphasized that he is not able to make any claims. This
turned out to be one more coincidence- I was to find out later
that Dayne and Dr. Merkle had worked together on a project and
had testified before a Senate committee on the utilization of
polymer in the recovery of oil.
At the end of our conversation Dan told me that I needed to
contact a man by the name of Joe Champion. He was the one that
was making gold."
"It was mid-September and the package was sitting on my
desk when I got in from lunch. It was from Dayne and inside
there was a hand-written message on yellow-lined paper that
said "David, I ran across this in cleaning out my bookshelf.
I thought I had put this in the O.U.(Oklahoma University) package.
I'm glad I didn't. It tells a lot about the Pt. Metals and their
complexes. I'm sure it will interest you." The package
was a surprise to me as I was not aware that he was going to
send me anything. I opened it up and it was a spiral-bound manuscript,
zerox-copied and about 80 pages long. It was called 20th- Century
Alchemy. I began to read the preface- "Twentieth Century
Alchemy is a publication which covers the debate which has plagued
man for milleniums. 'Can one cause an element to change from
itself to another by a chemical reaction?" Well, my good
friend, Dr. John O'M Bockris from Texas A&M University is
now conjuring a new breed of scientists fluttering throughout
their laboratories adorned in their black robes, wearing conical
hats with their pet horned toads, sprinkling elixir on lead
to convert it to gold.""
I answered his questions, he explained his theory to me. He
believed that the "limestone" material, and not the
metal artifacts, was the important discovery and that it was
actually an elixir used by the Spanish to convert base metals
into precious metals. He cautioned me that this wasn't definite,
but that a lot of the facts seemed to point in that direction.
He also suggested that there was a good chance that the cannons
and artifacts merely a thin layer of platinum covering them.
He speculated that this might have been a chemical reaction
which was a result of the close proximity of the elixir to the
artifacts mixing with a small electrical current naturally produced
by salt water. He theorized that over a period of 200 years
the iron may have been transformed into a thin layer of precious
metals that was identified by the assays performed over the
previous six years."
entering the crux of this memorandum please allow me the opportunity
to state that the story regarding your discovery is fascinating.
It is my understanding that you are dealing with two types of
unknown material at this time. The first being, approximately
100 barrels of a gray substance that is unknown and the second
being cannons and other assorted metallic artifacts of unknown
Continuing, it is my understanding and after physical communication
with Mr. Dayne Chastain and others, you have found by observation
that the material when treated with esoteric processes appears
to contain high levels of precious metals. Also, it is my understanding
that you have had Mr. Zig Bremmer and his associates in Germany
test the material and report high levels of platinum, associated
platinum group elements and gold. Completing my thoughts on
this subject, it is also my understanding that you have had
numerous other investigators tell you that the value of the
find is enormous, while others in the "main stream"
have stated its value to be of nothing greater than its artifactual
Having stated this, allow me to enter into a pliable scenario
as to the potential truth of your treasure. For discussion purposes,
let us forget the metallic artifacts found near the wreckage
and concentrate only on the barrels.
Being a study and expert in the field of low energy nuclear
reactions, I would have to guess that the barrels contain material
that is now known as a "trigger" for low energy nuclear
events. This modern day term is no more than its lesser accepted
term, elixir. The trigger is something that allows for the conversion
of a base metal to a precious metal. If you are dealing in the
world of sanity, you would immediately discount such thoughts
as reality. However, in the real world of science, this is now
starting to be recognized as a physical observation. I will
explain more and provide a reference later in this document.""
