Gold in the Philippines
by Tom Brown
(San Diego, California )
I've heard stories of the gold that was in the Philippines before the arrival of the Spanish. Along with intriguing names of locations throughout the islands. Mindoro a contraction of Mina de oro, mine of gold, Mt Batulao, a contracting of batong dilaw, Mount of yellow stone.
I'm wondering what others have heard of the old history of the Philippines and what resources I can direct my attention to.
Stan's response: Thanks Tom. The topic of Yamashita's Gold continues to be of great interest to a lot of people.
