A US Geological Survey (USGS) has reported substantial gold deposits in Puerto Rico. They are concentrated in two municipalities, ten rivers, and the Sierra Luquillo sector.
The Sierra Luquillo deposits cover a staggering area. Acording to the USGS report, they extend for ten kilometers, and run all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.
The report is 337 pages long, completed jointly by the USGS and the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez. Its file name is “Open-File Report 98-38” and its title is Mineral Resource Assessment for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico .

RIVERS OF GOLD
Pages 196-198 of the report analyze the gold deposits in two major municipalities: Utuado and Barranquitas.
They also report the “placer gold deposits” along ten rivers: Rio Fajardo, Rio Mameyes, Rio Humacao, Rio Maville, Rio Cibuco, Rio Daguao, Rio Grande de Loiza, Rio Sibuco, Rio Anasco, and Rio Grande de Manatí.
THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA LUQUILLO
During the 17th century, the Spanish empire worked a gold mining area in the Sierra de Luquillo.
It looked something like this:
However, the vast majority of the area was not mined.
On page 197 of the USGS report, it states that “gold deposits persist for nearly the entire distance of 10 kilometers to the Atlantic Ocean.”
BATTLE FOR EL YUNQUE
The El Yunque rain forest is located in the Sierra Luquillo sector.
Rumors have circulated about the possible mining of El Yunque. Some estimates claim that tons of gold are buried in the volcanic ash of El Yunque.
According to attorney Aleida Centeno, the President of the Nationalist Party of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Forest Service is aware of the mining potential of El Yunque…a potential extending to 610,000 tons of gold.
At its current price, this amount of gold would yield over $26 trillion to its owners. To place this in context, the gross national product (GNP) of the United States is estimated at $18.45 trillion.
El Yunque is currently a “protected” national forest…but a gold deposit which is roughly 150% of the United States GNP, could easily persuade the US congress to “amend” that designation .
YET ANOTHER REASON FOR CLEARING THINGS UP
The existence of 610,000 tons of gold in El Yunque is far from certain. Some would call it fringe journalism, or science fiction.
However, even a fraction of that amount, could place the entire rain forest at risk.
It would be a shame to pit the irreplacable beauty of El Yunque, against the needs of the US economy.
This is yet another reason, for clearing up the relationship between the US and Puerto Rico…once and for all.

Uh oh Mr. Charlie is hungry!
If you actually read the report, there’s not much accessible gold. The placer deposits are offshore and the other deposits are meager.
People are not ignorent, “net ninja”, the hand you use to point with one fingure on people remember three fingures point back at you. Your intelegence is not to belittle people, but help them understand the topic. You feel me, why your ignorent comments toward people. Fit in don’t try to be center of attention. Spread the LOVE!!!!!
Rapping up the overall comments of gold in PR, the importance is the action, is it for a good cause, or for just removing the gold to the extent PR is worthless and booted by the USA. There is intrest for gold in more ways then one. A tug a war is what will be the outcome. Make no mistake the future holds the answer. And if turns to favor to remove the gold, be prepared for a huge change of drastic moments the world will see. Moments of a island stripped out for what it stands. A waste of land will be it’s name. My prediction, Puerto Rico get ready for what change will devistate you. You will have no chose.
THAT ARTICLE WAS POSTED ON 2020. **** Puerto Rico, needs to be rebuild, not to be exploited. All of that propaganda is to sell a book, that Who knows how many things said in it are true !—Puerto Rico, has being abused, and exploited for so many years, that now any progress on the ISLAND, is based on GREED. The only ones that benefits from any advancements or progress are those that are in power. ONLY THE POPULATION IS SUFFERIN. THE ONE’S IN GOVERNMENT AND THOSE IN CHARGE OF ANY AGENCIES, ARE ALL CORRUPTED !! THEY ARE LIVING LIKE —-FAT PIGS IN A FARM—- WITH LAVISHED ABUNDANCE OF EVERYTHING. THERE ARE STILL –PEOPLE LIVING IN HORRENDOUS POVERTY LACKING THE MINIMUM ESSENTIALS, LIKE , FOOD, ELECTRICITY AND WATER , STILL PEOPLE GO TO SLEEP HUNGRY, SINCE –MARIA. ALL THAT WHILE THE –FAT PIGS– GORGE THEMSELVES EVERY NIGHT. THERE IS NO HUMAN COMPASSION, NO HONESTY AND I DARE THINK THAT THERE’S NO ONE IN THE ISLAND WITH ——-COJONES ——-IN THE RIGHT PLACE—–TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR THE ISLAND, AND TROW ALL THE CORRUPTED TRAITORS, IN HELL WITH SATAN, WHERE THEY BELONG.
I love some of the comments, some of these commenters need to learn a little history your ignorance is astounding!
They claim the Yankees stole everything from Puerto Rico. Who was there before the Yankees? Oh that’s right the Spaniards! Who was there before the Spaniards? Well the indigenous people the Taino who were at war with who? Oh that’s right the Carib people, Who came from where? Modern day Venezuela! What did the Carib people used to do to the Taino, Well they killed and kidnapped the Taino women. i.e. enslaved them. Yes, By the time Christopher Columbus arrived he noticed that the Taino were already involved in tribal warfare. Also in fact in Cuba the Cibonay people who lived on the west part of Cuba and the Taino who inhabited the eastern part of Cuba were also at war with each other.
You see there has always been tribalism and war in the islands called the greater Antilles. The Carib people were conquering the lesser Antilles islands and killing off the Taino. They were psuing them into the Greater antilles as they conducted their island hopping campaign to expand their empire.
So if Puerto RIco has anyone to blame is the Spaniards, For killing off the indigenous population by Disease, warfare and Slavery. Also should blame Venezuela.
So let’s get to the topic of the gold.
Who is going to mine the gold?
What will be the cost to mine the gold? Environmentally? Financially?
Who in Puerto Rico has the expertise to mine the gold?
Who will benefit from mining the gold?
Not Puerto Rico
The Rain Forest will suffer
Nobody benefits from mining the gold, except the company who mines it.
Absolutely, it is necessary that Puerto Rico becomes independent now! I read the book and found it to be invaluable for others to read.
Puerto Rico needs to choose Independence from the Tyranny of the US. The US is not and have never been our friends. We owe the USA nothing. The governors of Puerto Rico are bought and pay for the duopoly and Oligarchs of the US. You have to question yourself? if we are such an ingsignificant Island then why doesn’t the USA leaves us alone and stop meddling in our affairs. Something is going on.
No one owns the nature of Puerto Rico, GOLD is the islands natural resource, it’s a waste just covered under mother nature, yes EL YUNQUE is beautiful, but what good provided freely, greed of human mentality will rise in everyone.BUT USA and Puerto Rico to controlled in mining and all gold to be monitor by Puerto Rico government with nether party (USA or Puerto Rico) making any changes of mining the gold. everything is under cameras and people (government officials) both USA and Puerto Rico removing the gold with awareness, and contain the gold to be melted into bars of gold, the gold can arise well being to the people in the island, health, no hunger, no poverty, rise education to the youth in college and schools, get rid of drugs and lower the rate of death. because the people of Puerto Rico feel “lets leave it alone” show no moving forward in the island nor mental education in rising the island. only because he said she said.
listen Puerto Rico!!!
the gold is discover for a reason, TO MOVE FORWARD THE GENERATION OF PUERTO RICO, MAKE PUERTO RICO A ISLAND OF “LOVE, PEACE, ENCHANTMENT, A TRUE GOLD SHINING STAR OF THE CARIBBEANS. GIVE A OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR PEOPLE IN THE USA TO GO BACK AND “TAKE” CARE OF PUERTO RICO ANCESTORS YES GRAND MOTHER AND GRAND FATHERS THAT SWEAT OFF THERE FOREHEADS TO BRING US UP, WE NEED A BREAK TO LIVE AND LIVE LIFE HAPPY/ HEALTHY/ AND PEACEFUL AND PROVIDE ALL WE CAN TO OUR OLDER GENERATION, AND OUR NEW GENERATION, IT’S TIME TO LIVE LIFE.. SO LETS LIVE THE MOMENT NOW!!
LETS PUT OUT A PROPOSAL FOR THE USA AND PUERTO RICO TO START MINING NOW!! YOU WILL LIVE NOT TO REGRET IT. PUT THE LORD IN FRONT OF IT ALL, AND YOU WILL SEE THE GIFT OF LIFE FROM THE ISLAND.THIS MINING WILL BE KNOW WORLD WIDE, AND PUERTO RICO WILL CHANGE IT’S NAME IN ENGLISH TO,
THE PORT OF THE RICHES “THE GOLDEN STAR OF THE CARIBBEANS
LETS MAKE A CHANGE TODAY!!!!!!
Given PR’s 100 + years history of living under U.S. Rule and its present circumstances, if any substantial amount of gold were to be found on its soil, it would not be a treasure kept by Puerto Rico to improve the lives of their native residents. Therefore, believing that gold would help solve the island’s economic crisis is a foolish hope. The odds of winning a millionaire lotto on a regular basis by the same lotto player are better. World history is full of greed and blood, and gold is soiled with these natural inclinations.

Dream on it US… because the moment anyone just mention the possibility of mining El Yunque (or any other part of the island) the sons of this land will let you know what are we made of! IF NOT BEFORE! =:O
WHO SAID, THAT AMERICA HAVE —RESPECT FOR ANYTHING ** SACRED ** ON THIS WORLD ? — THEY ARE TRYING TO SELL ALMOST ALL THE —SACRED LAND — OF THE — NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS. NOT CONSIDERING THAT THEY WERE ALL HERE, BEFORE ALL THE*** YANKEES *** ROBED THEM OF ALL THEIR LAND, AND SEND THEM TO —*** LIVE IN RESERVATIONS, IN DEPLORABLE CONDITION. WHO ARE WE KIDDING ?
Also MARGOT VARGAS:
That article you posted on the Program 2020
And the history of La Casa Pueblo founded by Alexis Massol-
El Plano, the papers where brought to him by Juan Antonio Corretjer. It is interesting to note that is during this same period (1984) that US CONGRESS removed the Bankruptcy Protection (Chapter 9) from Puerto Rico.
Today US Congress says it doesn’t know who did it….. ( Rep Strom Thurmond! A Racists, who believed in the separation of the races)
Then after that came the selling of Puerto Rico Bonds all over the US.
(I consider this debt an illegal debt)
So this was a complete, total plan!
I understand why Mr Alexis Massol was so afraid when he read the papers Juan Antonio Corretjer brought to him.
Unfortunately Juan Antonio Corretjer passed away and we do not have leaders, that bring papers out of La Fortaleza-
So we have to be very VIGILANT, especially today with the Financial Control Board and the plan La Promesa.

sell the gold if it will help us here in Puerto Rico we need food and medical care not EL YUNKE
Aunque no tuvieramos ni una pizca de oro……….ni mineral alguno; PR es tan valioso, por tantas razones, la mas importante: es nuestro. El oro de hoy dia es el agua. Ellos la estan sacando de Rio Blanco y llevandosela por conducto de la marina estadounidense. Fuera los Yankees de nuestra Tierra ya.
There are some Web-sites and YouTube Videos that show American Tourist entering into El Yunque and panning for Gold.
Gold Prospecting should be illegalized in
El Yunque is a Sacred Mountain.
We have a very dark history of gold with the Spanish and Tainos.
A very dark History.
One that we will not like to revisit.
US! LEAVE EL YUNQUE ALONE!
Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
Gold in Puerto Rico!!
“It would be a shame to pit the irreplacable beauty of El Yunque, against the needs of the US economy.
This is yet another reason, for clearing up the relationship between the US and Puerto Rico … once and for all.”
I THINK IT IS ANOTHER STRATEGIC OF THE *** GREEDY MONSTER TO SELL –EL YUNKE TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER CO. AND DEVELOPERS. IT IS ALL PURE LIES..
A visitar el Yunque antes de que 🇺🇸 lo desaparezca!
