An excavation later this month will aim to solve the mystery of the Nazi gold train once and for all.
It has been one of the most enduring mysteries of recent times, but now following months of investigations which have turned up nothing, amateur treasure hunters Piotr Koper and Andreas Richter are set to prove once and for all whether or not the fabled lost train has been found.
The pair first came forward one year ago claiming to have identified the whereabouts of a WWII locomotive packed with gold and valuables which went missing in 1945 just as the Soviets were advancing on Poland.
Demanding compensation to the tune of ten percent of the riches inside, the two men prompted months of investigations and speculation as authorities attempted to verify the train's existence.
Now though, with interest in the mystery waning, Koper and Richter are set to bring the saga to a conclusion by carrying out an excavation of the tunnel in which they believe the train to be located.
The dig, which will be broadcast via a live stream, is set to begin on August 16th.
