A visitor to the farm, a man wearing a house painter’s outfit and a
hanging moustache, turned up nine days later bringing along his metal
detector. He searched all nine parts of the pictogram dropping a
handkerchief in three spots as mark…all of them had a spherical symbol,
less than a semi-circle attached to it. Then he went to his car to pick
up a digging tool and a bucket unearthing a bronze, silver and gold
plates at the three areas he marked.
“Plate one (silver color) consisted mainly of quite pure silver
(what an understatement!), with an additional ingredient accounting
for less than 0.1%. The weight of the plate was 4.98kg (11lbs).
Plate two (bronze color) consisted of a copper-tin alloy (of which
the tin content amounted to 10%-15%), nickel and traces of iron
amounting to less than 0.1%”.
This meant that the silver plate consisted of 99.9% pure silver,
purer than sterling-silver. Furthermore, a spectrographic analysis
of both plates proved that they had not been made from a cast but
from some kind of conglomerate of silver nuggets and natural copper
and tin pieces of the type found in Germany’s Harz forest, not far
from Grasdorf. They had been produced, either by heating up to a
degree that partially melted the metals – or in a low-gravity environment.
It is further mentioned of the gold plate, of the finest quality that had
been seen by the examiner.
Golden Age – The Golden Age is the only age that falls within the rule of Cronus. Molded out of the earth through the hands of Prometheus, these humans were said to live among the gods, and freely mingled with them. Peace and harmony prevailed during this age. Humans did not have to work to feed themselves, for the earth provided food in abundance. They lived to a very old age but with a youthful appearance and eventually died peacefully. Their spirits live on as "guardians". Plato in Cratylus (397 e) recounts the golden race of men who came first. He clarifies that Hesiod did not mean men literally made of gold, but good and noble. He describes these men as daemons upon the earth. Since δαίμονες (daimones) is derived from δαήμονες (daēmones, meaning knowing or wise), they are beneficent, preventing ills, and guardians of mortals.
Silver Age – The Silver Age and every age that follows fall within the rule of Cronus' successor and son, Zeus. Men in the Silver age lived for one hundred years under the dominion of their mothers. They lived only a short time as grown adults, and spent that time in strife with one another. During this Age men refused to worship the gods and Zeus destroyed them for their impiety. After death, humans of this age became "blessed spirits" of the underworld.
Bronze Age – Men of the Bronze Age were hardened and tough, as war was their purpose and passion. Zeus created these humans out of the ash tree. Their armor was forged of bronze, as were their homes, and tools. The men of this Age were undone by their own violent ways and left no named spirits; instead, they dwell in the "dank house of Hades". This Age came to an end with the flood of Deucalion.

How did the guy with the metal detector know there would be something
buried at the site who then in turn dug up the artifacts and then
sold them ? Was this a planned event on the part of several individuals
to make quick money ?
I just wondered why this didn't receive media attention considering artifacts were found.
The metal content of the 3 plates were also in very pure form

Now that is an interesting out look indeed ! A diagram of a machine preserved in gold.
hmmmm... now I'm going to be off looking at images of machine diagrams :-)
