An epidemic of modern day gold fever has hit a Chilean island after the claimed discovery of an 18th Century treasure trove worth $10 billion. The
gold rush began on Monday after salvage firm Wagner announced the discovery on Robinson Crusoe island, using a specially designed robot. "Its the
greatest treasure in history" said Wagner lawyer Fernando Echeverria.
Although the find is yet to be confirmed and excavated, an argument is already raging in Chile about the ownership of the treasure.
Wagner salvage insist they will not reveal the exact location of the treasure until they are guaranteed half of the find.
The Mayor of Robinson Crusoe, Mark Gonzalez, has recommended that the island's 600 inhabitants should receive half of the value of the booty.
