The treasure hunters had contacted the Polish government authorities and asked for a 10 percent. The lawyers of the two hunters notified the authorities through letters. The authorities in Walbrzych were first notified of the location of the train. Since then the world has gone on a Nazi gold discovery frenzy.

It is rumoured the train carries gold. The gold was apparently dispatched from the Polish city of Wroclaw. The city was closed by the Soviet troops after World War 2.  Folklore estimates the train went missing near Ksiaz castle.

According to Business Insider experts say the existence of the Nazi train is one of only first. During his time Hitler constructed a vast system of tunnels. Still today there are many treasures that have not been found which the Nazis looted. If the tunnels are discovered there are a possibility many more trains filled with treasures could be discovered. 

Even the officials in Walbrzych claimed they are 99 percent sure there is a hidden gold train. Sources claim the train is about 100 metres long. The train is also allegedly protected or armoured. The protection detail of the train indicates the vessel may be containing very precious cargo.

Experts suggest in addition to military equipment, jewelry, works of art and archive documents could also be found. Sources have also claimed one of the men instrumental in hiding the train revealed the location on his deathbed. 

Bloomberg has revealed the Polish police are evacuating the site. The Polish army is moving in on the site to investigate. Last week the officials announced they have pinned pointed the exact location of the train.

The Deputy Culture Minister Piotr Zuchowski stated they made the discovery not three days ago. According to Zuchowski they had obtained geo-radar images of the train. 

The location is believed to be near a forest located near the Czech border. Authorities have secured or sealed off the area. Tomasz Smolarz is the head of the Lower Silesia region’s administration.

According to Smolarz the case is being investigate but the claim could amount to nothing. Smolarz claims there have been other claims of the same treasure in the past decade. Smolarz also stated the army will now properly investigate the matter.  

The Polish government has also warned off potential hunters to stay away from the area. The area is considered as dangerous. The area near the train is expected to be booby trapped.

If there really is a treasure then it may one of the biggest treasure discoveries of the 21st century yet. Roman Szelemej, the mayor of Walbrzych claimed it may be an incredible discovery.
