Gold depository could soon be on its way to Texas

Tarek Saab has a golden vision for Texas.

Well, for a Texas Bullion Depository anyway.

So he, and his company — Texas Precious Metals — set up a booth at the Republican Party of Texas state convention in Dallas to tell Texans about it.

“Texans as a group are some of the largest gold buyers in the world,” said Saab, chief operating officer of the company. “The only options they have to store it right now are in a bank or their home.”

Saab’s company, one of many interested in being involved with the state’s plan to create a depository, proposes building a potentially $20 million facility — with no Texas tax dollars — on 40 acres of land it has in Shiner, about 250 miles south of Fort Worth.

Plans for such a depository, where Texans could store their gold and precious metals, have been in the works since state Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake, asked lawmakers to create the facility last year.

Under the new Texas law, the comptroller’s office is working to create the state’s first bullion depository — which could hold deposits of gold and other precious metals from financial institutions, cities, school districts, businesses, individuals and countries — at a location yet to be determined.

Storage fees will be charged, perhaps generating revenue for the state.

Capriglione and others say they want to bring home around $650 million owned by the University of Texas Investment Management Company that is stored at the HSBC Bank in New York. The company pays about $650,000 a year to store the gold in New York.

I thought UT was building a depository ?? They don't seem to be any closer to retrieving their gold or maybe it's already in a Texas vault but kept a secret.

Building our own fort knox seems to be a really slooooow process.
