For seven long months of severe privation and backbreaking toil, Roxas and his twelve men doggedly dug their way through the damp, dark maze of tunnels. Finally by sundown of December 22, 1970, they stumbled their way through the damp, dark maze of tunnels. Finally , by sundown of December 22, 1970, they stumbled onto the huge concrete vault that was indicated in the old Japanese officer's treasure map. Then from the heavy poundings of their sledgehammers, the stubborn vault soon crumbled down. And, at long last. . .struck with great awe, they stood transfixed as they beheld the priceless reward of their painful quest--boxes of gold bullions and one one-ton Golden Budda Statue filled with precious stones! But unknown to them, the bloody hounds of prey-- the greedy power--wielders--took the scent and were soon at bay. "How much in cold cash is the estimated value of the fabled Yamashita treasure left in the Philippines? Believe it or not, the estimates range anywhere from $25 billion to $100 billion, speculated to be a $1 trillion nowadays, as computed by Reynaldo T. Fajardo, delegate to the 1971 Constitutional Convention, based from the statement made by former Central Bank Governor Gregorio Licaros." Philippine Free Press March 7, 1987
