    So not only just gold but vast reserves of gold, copper, nickel, cobalt and other minerals, apart from already located million of tons of iron ore.

    In short pakistan will be the richest nation in te world after digging out these from chiniot :woot:

    But the word "may" have busted it all :cry:

    Its really amazing that in every such news the word "vast reserve" + "millions of tons" and biggest in the world is also there.

    Why don't people talk reality?

    With all probability. :)
    Your predictions will fall flat in Congo. :pleasantry:
    In all eventualities, the only thing may get busted will be the Indian hope.
    The fact is while other sources have been identified, there is possibility Gold MAY also be present....is that too difficult to comprehend. :D

    what ever, one thing we are sure pakistan is rich on oil, gas, coal, iron, mountain salt, gold, copper, urnanium and many of other minerals, including world 6 largest population to support fast economy growth. And on the top, ideal location on the map (access to central asia, middle east and china) But due to incompetency of the government we are at a level to put more load on the people and devaluation of the currency.

    Corruption really hurt alot...
