Canadian Mint Loses $15M in Gold

Mint's $15.3 M golden dilemma: Was there a heist?

OTTAWA The distinct possibility that precious metals may have been stolen from the Royal Canadian Mint is "inexcusable," the federal minister responsible for the Crown corporation said Monday.


The findings of a long-awaited external audit, released earlier in the day, concluded that $15.3 million in missing gold is not the result of accounting or bookkeeping errors, raising even more questions about the whereabouts of the metals from what has been touted as one of the most secure facilities in Canada.
How in the hell does one lose 17,000 troy ounces of gold!?!!

Since about 2001 Gold has tripled in value over the Dollar. The current price of 1oz of Gold is about $930.
