TALL TALE OR MAJOR UTAH GOLD FIND?

Arthur Shippee forwarded this story, which was noted on the
Explorator mailing list:

"A story of treasure worth tens of millions of dollars found
in the mountains? Or just a hoax that has the town of Delta
buzzing?

The story surfaced this week. Locals want to believe it's
true, and federal authorities want to see proof.

A Millard County man says he was hunting for arrowheads
when he came upon a cache of gold bars, civil war guns,
antiques and dynamite."

"On the phone, Scott Taylors said he found 137 gold bars,
which could be worth more than $50 million. He says he
discovered the gold while hunting for arrowheads, and that
it was buried with antiques, guns and dynamite.

The Bureau of Land Management told Taylor to take them
there, so that they could remove the old treasure, and clear
out the old dynamite. But Taylor did not like their offer."

"We went to talk to Scott Taylor Tuesday night, at his
parent's house just outside Delta, but he was unwilling to
do an on-camera interview. His mother told us, this should
be an exciting time, but itís turned into a nightmare. She
said that her son would tell the BLM where the gold is,
if they were willing to pay a 40% finders fee. She said,
unless there is an offer like that, he is not telling where
the gold is. "
