This is what I found on DailyMail:

A bronze chest filled with gold, jewels, and other valuables worth more than $1 million and hidden a decade ago somewhere in the Rocky Mountain wilderness has been found, according to a famed art and antiquities collector who created the treasure hunt.

Forrest Fenn, 89, told the Santa Fe New Mexican on Sunday that a man who did not want his name released – but was from ‘back East’ – located the chest a few days ago and the discovery was confirmed by a photograph the man sent him.

‘It was under a canopy of stars in the lush, forested vegetation of the Rocky Mountains and had not moved from the spot where I hid it more than 10 years ago,’ Fenn said in a statement on his website Sunday that still did not reveal the exact location.


The clues to the treasure were posted online and in a 24-line poem in Fenn’s 2010 autobiography “The Thrill of the Chase.”

After the treasure was found, Fenn commented on how he felt.

“I don’t know, I feel halfway kind of glad, halfway kind of sad because the chase is over,” he said on his website. “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.”
