Permission given to raise mystery canister in hunt for lost nazi gold

Treasure hunters will soon be digging up a canister thought to contain $250M of plundered Nazi gold.
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 so that it could later be used to 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.

A few months ago, the group was able to use ground penetrating radar to identify what appeared to be a 5ft metal canister buried 10ft beneath the ground at the very place where the treasure was rumored to be.
Now, at last, permission has been granted to raise the mysterious canister in the hope that it will contain the enormous wealth of riches that the group has been searching for.

"We are excited to share with you the receiving of our latest permit required for the final excavation of the deposits," said Silesian Bridge Foundation member Roman Furmaniak.

"Save the date - September 1st!"

"Big Date for a Big Day! Things are moving, we would love to make it a sprint, as much as we can, but we do understand your impatience and we are doing our best with what we have!"

It will be very interesting indeed to see what the team uncovers in about one month's time.

I've come out in a cold sweat with a deja vu feeling of "The Curse of Oak Island". Let's hope it's a quick top pocket find with some real treasure this time.

Online converter tells me that 10ft is about 3m, so what about probes and stuff, just dig it out? Am I missing something?

I, alone, could have it dug out in a day.   That is just with a shovel.

This reminds me of Geraldo Rivera and Al Capone's vault, I hope this time they actually find something.

I think the reason they never really find these mythical big hauls is the Nazis took most of it with them to set up many businesses and large companies in the countries they scattered to at the end of the war. The 4th Reich did exist in a way, it was just mixed in with governments and multi national companies which was a plan the nazis always had.  They also needed funds to keep the underground moving and hid loads in bank accounts to finance this.
