LIQUID GOLD STOLEN BY MINE EMPLOYEES

It's not exactly numismatic, but another hoard of gold was in
the news recently.  Dave Perkins writes: "The Denver Post newspaper
had an article last week about three former employees of Cripple
Creek & Victor Gold Mining Co. stealing more than $1.7M in
unprocessed gold over a six-year period.  The trio "are alleged
to have diverted a line carrying gold-saturated fluid and directed
it to their own homemade recovery filter."

"They were making quite a bit of money on the side during their
employment up there," said Larry Martin, an investigator for the
4th Judicial District Attorney's Office. "I've never seen anything
quite like this before, especially on this magnitude of the theft."

"They put it in plastic bags, hauled it out of there, put it in
a truck and shipped it off," Martin said."

"The mining company said it "has intensified its already tight
security" and changed procedures."
