Treasure hunters have found a metal canister that could contain hundreds of millions of dollars worth of stolen valuables.
During World War II, the Nazis plundered all manner of treasures from across Europe and much of it has yet to be recovered. One particular hoard, which was stolen on the orders of Heinrich Himmler, had been hidden somewhere in Poland with the intention of being used to later set up a Fourth Reich.
The treasure is thought to contain around $250,000,000 worth of valuables including the 'Gold of Breslau' which was plundered from a police headquarters near Wroclaw in Poland.
Now a group of treasure hunters believes that it may have located these long-lost riches underneath an abandoned conservatory at an 18th-Century palace in the Polish village of Minkowskie.
Using ground penetrating radar, the team has identified what appears to be a 5ft metal canister buried 10ft beneath the ground at the very place where the treasure was rumored to be based on recovered Nazi documents.
According to Roman Furmaniak from the Silesian Bridge Foundation, the scans have revealed 'anomalies' at the site.
"The first drill we made showed unnatural contortions on one side," he said. "We made a second probe and received the same result on the other side. A third probe struck an object."
"'The shapes and colours show anomalies, in other words human interference in the ground."
"Metal has a different density to earth, and this is shown as a darker colour in the images."
If the team actually does succeed in unearthing the rumored treasure, it will certainly be one for the history books.
