GLD ETF full of fake gold?

Interesting story that if true means physical gold is way undervalued:
The gist of the article is that there are between 1.3 million and 1.5 million in fake 400 OZ gold bars out there. The 'fake' part of the bars is actually tungsten. It's unclear from the article whether the GLD ETF tests the gold bars that they take delivery of, but they have a legal disclaimer that basically says there's no guarantee that the gold in the trust is actually real.
It will be interesting to see if this story has legs.
