FACTS

    For the last decade, the Rocky Mountains have been the hiding place of a treasure chest full of gold, rubies, and diamonds which was estimated to be worth up to $2 million. The treasure hunt was dreamed up and organized by a man named Forrest Fenn, an antiques and art collector, who said he desired to inspire and give people hope. His clues to where the chest could be found were written in a cryptic poem included in Fenn’s autobiography “The Thrill of The Chase.” One clue read it was “somewhere in the mountains north of Santa Fe.” He announced on Sunday that it had been found by a man who wished to remain undisclosed.

    THE HUNT

    Fenn estimated that over the course of the 10 years, 350,000 people from all over the world have come to hunt for the treasure. At least four people are believed to have died in search of it, some quit their jobs to try find it, and many others have been temporarily lost or injured. In the years before it was found, Fenn’s treasure chest was said to be an “elusive treasure that may or may not exist,” and he was criticized for encouraging people to possibly endanger their lives. “I congratulate the thousands of people who participated in the search and hope they will continue to be drawn by the promise of other discoveries,” Fenn said.
