Around 1972 some of the
military and Government men of the then -President of the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos
reportedly landed at the Topside Parade Grounds by helicopter. They proceeded under arms
down to the Ramsey Ravine and excavated two large holes about two feet deep each.
After loading a certain amount of items into four
ammunition boxes they returned to the Parade Ground at Topside and departed three hours
later. In the pre-war days this ravine was utilized as a trash dump by the people of
Barrio San Jose and it is assumed that the visiting men recovered an unknown amount of
valuables from the old dump.
In hindsight it would appear that an old dumping ground would
indeed be the ideal place to hide valuables, especially since the original location of the
gold vault wasnt all that far away. However, again, there is no
conclusive evidence that this actually occurred.
