During the Second World War, the Japanese took control of the Philippines, driving the United States forces from the islands. While in control the Japanese confiscated and stockpiled immense amounts of gold and other treasures and hid the plunder in caves, vaults, and private homes throughout the Philippines while awaiting shipment to Japan.
Most of that treasure never reached Japan. In the sixty-five years since then, many treasure hunters have roamed the islands searching for the bounty. Although some of the riches has been found, the majority still remains hidden throughout the islands.
Mindanao Gold is the story of a group of treasure hunters in search of that hidden treasure. The adventure takes two energetic young miners from the safe confines of Elko, Nevada, to the treacherous jungles on the island of Mindanao. Follow them as they attempt to find and retrieve the gold and escape dangerous Muslim bandits. What price will they pay in their quest for the gold?
