Didn't some billionaire hide something worth a lot of money out there somewhere? Mabey they found it and don't realize it.

Yes, I think you are right.

That thing is actually solid platinum.
It weighs 486 pounds 12 ounces.
So based on the above figures at todays market value of $939.29 an ounce, that thing is worth a cool $7,315,190.52.

Nice find!

Nah. It isn't in Nevada. She has definitely been to some places that I would like to camp at sometime though.

Wonder how much C-4 it would take to dislodge that? [emoticon]

I read that it has been found on Google maps and it was placed late 2015 to 2016 by evidence of photo history and obvious shadows. Nice work to stay under the radar for 4 or 5 years.

I assume it will eventually be removed. I hope it is just relocated to the ranger station or similar.

486 pounds and 12 onces of solid platinum!!!??? For lack of a better reaction - that's not possible ... with platinum worth over $950 per ounce.

I suspect hardwood painted with silver paint as more likely what it's made of! [emoticon]

P.S. Could a 1-ton dually 4X4 PU even carry 486 pounds and 12 onces - plus the crane - plus the backhoe - out there (unnoticed) so as to deal with setting that thing up vertically stable? I think not - but maybe another cup of coffee will help me think more clearly.
