    If they would have slowly sold it off and kept their mouth shut, they wouldn't have had to pay the 50%+ taxes on it. Just wait until some bank declares it was taken in a robbery and they want it back.

    What a rip off. If taxes are imposed it should be on FACE value not estimated worth.
    Does the government taxes us on how little our paychecks are really worth? NO!

    I agree. Would have been much better if they just would've kept quiet.

    There was a treasure found in a different state on a rural property(won't say where) and it turned into a terrible nightmare for the owners. Someone trespassed looking for the treasure and videotaped their discovery.The property owners didn't know anything about the treasure until later. When word spread of the cache, the owners unexpectedly had people showing up day and night on their land. The owners hired private security to protect them and to help keep unwanted people off their land. There were several frightening encounters they told of that occurred while they still lived on the property.

    Eventually the owners sold the land for commercial purposes, but kept the mineral rights. They were relieved to be free of it.
