Millions in Gold, Silver Recovered From Rubble

November 01, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Most of the $200 million in gold and silver buried under a building destroyed in the World Trade Center attack has been recovered.

"I think we have most of it. I'm not sure we have all of it yet," Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani said.

The metals stashed in a Bank of Nova Scotia vault at 4 World Trade Center must be moved "because authorities need to demolish the building," said Pam Agnew, a spokeswoman for the Toronto-based bank.

Giuliani confirmed that armored cars seen heading to and from the site were carrying the precious metals. Agnew declined to disclose any details of the removal effort or say where the gold and silver was taken.
