In an extraordinary news conference Friday, Poland's Deputy Culture Minister Piotr Zuchowski said authorities were led to a spot by an unnamed individual and that images obtained from ground-penetrating radar have left him "99 percent convinced" that the treasure train has been located.
Zuchowski called it an "exceptional" discovery, according to The Telegraph.
"The train is 100 meters long and is protected," he said.
"The fact that it is armored indicates it has a special cargo," he said, but added: "We do not know what is inside the train. ... Probably military equipment but also possibly jewelry, works of art and archive documents."
The BBC reports that Zuchowski said the information about the train's location came "in a deathbed confession from a person involved in concealing it."
