The Size of the Treasure
  Over six years of work resulted in a massive amount of material. It was kept in over 4000 buckets, 1000 storage boxes and 20 large trash cans. These filled 10 storage units to capacity! Transporting it to the Processing facility required Seven Double Tractor-Trailer trucks, One 26 foot U-Haul Truck and One 15-Passenger Cargo Van. THE TOTAL WEIGHT EXCEEDED 525,000 POUNDS!
