I was under the impression that the gold reserves were evacuated with Quezon, and alot of the "money" and other valuables(sp?) were transferred to banks stateside, early in the war.
Granted , I am sure there were some rich people in PI who could not not transfer their valuables, and some fortunes were still there , but PI was not an extremely rich country at the time.
I would assume the gold mines of Lepanto were run by the Japanese during the war , but given the circumstances , I would wonder about the production amounts. "Assets" like this mine and others, I know nothing as to how much $$ was involved or extracted during the war.
Also , another side to this, is, Although the Japanese plundered like everyone else , I have never heard of "excessive hoarding" of such treasure by higher ranking Japanese officers. To me, it seems counter to the Japanese ideals/culture at the time. Large amounts of treasure would seem to me to automactically become the property of Emperor Hirohito and Nippon and to hoard large amounts would be akin to "stealing" from the same, and I would not expect that Yamashita or many Japanese would even think of doing that.
(ROXAS VS MARCOS...HAWAII COURT DEPOSITION.....Proof that a filipiono treasure hunter Rogelio Roxas recovered 2 ton golden budha and cave full of gold...it took Phil. Army (Marcos loyal soldiers)...one year to haul the treasure inside the cave...!!! )
