The surprise discovery of three jam jars filled with gold bars and hundreds of gold coins in an old building marked for renovation has left a mountain community in eastern France perplexed and celebrating.
The mayor of Morez, a small industrial town in a picturesque valley in the Jura, said the value of the find was more than E600,000 (£520,700). Town hall staff first found three jam jars of gold bars and coins worth E500,000 at the back of a dusty shelf, then opened a safe hidden behind boxes in a wardrobe to find up to E150,000 in gold coins.

Asante Gold C$5 Million Placement Is Oversubscribed
and Another C$2 Million Is Accepted;
Drilling Finds 7.47 g/t Gold over 30 Meters
Monday, March 22, 2021
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada -- Asante Gold Corp. (CSE:ASE, Frankfurt: 1A9, U.S. OTC:ASGOF) announces that assays have been received for the first hole of a three-hole geotechnical drill program at our Kubi Gold project in Ghana.
DDHK21-001 was collared approximately 100 meters to the north of the Kubi Pit, near the middle of the 1Kubi Main Mineral Resource. On this section gold mineralization has been previously outlined to a depth of 450 meters. The gold is free milling and occurs within a near vertical 1-kilometer by 1-meter to 15-meter-thick shear-bounded "garnet" zone.
Gold is associated with up to 30% garnet and 15% sulfide mineralization and as coarse gold in late quartz veins.
The drilling has confirmed typical Kubi Main Zone gold mineralization.
-- 30 meters grading 7.47 g/t gold (true width estimated at 7.5 meters), including:
-- 14.31 g/t over 10 meters.
-- 5.69 g/t over 9.0 meters.
-- 10.75 g/t over 16 meters.
Given the presence of visible gold and the numerous high assays received, samples have been resubmitted for screened metallics assays, which give more exact results when coarse gold is present. Further results will be announced as received. ...
... For the remainder of the announcement:
The mayor, Laurent Petit, said that the three-story building in the town centre had been lived in by four brothers and sisters without children.
When the last died in his 90s last year a relative offered to sell the building to the town hall for E130,000. Morez, like many other towns in France, was seeking to buy up and renovate old buildings to attract families back to its emptying centre. ...
