A bronze chest filled with gold, jewels, and other valuables worth more than $1 million and hidden a decade ago somewhere in the Rocky Mountain wilderness has been found, according to the famed art and antiquities collector, who created the treasure hunt. Fenn, 89, told the Santa Fe New Mexican on Sunday that a man who did not want his name released located the chest a few days ago and the discovery was confirmed by a photograph the man sent him.
