How solid are these facts? The tunnel and elevator report comes from a one year old comment made on an earlier Zero Hedge article. (Captain Kink: "I have seen it") ie, not very solid. On the other hand, that two extraordinary and same-purposed vaults are side by side is pretty good circumstantial support. The Fed may not be the very biggest sovereign public gold vault on earth.
A related story: Germany has arranged to gradually get its national gold supply back from the NY Fed vault across the road but has not been allowed to verify the gold is there.
How big: The Fed vault is built on bedrock to support 530,000 gold bars safely.This gold mostly belongs to foreign nations and is separate from the Fort Knox and West Point repositories of US gold.
