Where the Fraser and the Thompson River meet in British Columbia there was a train derailment. Three of the railway cars that derailed left the tracks and fell into the steep river canyon below. According to local information along with other cargo, the derailed cars contained gold bullion. As with any cargo of value this gold bullion was heavily insured. At some point before recovering the lost rail cars in the river canyon, the plates containing the serial numbers of these cars were lost. In order for the railway company to submit a claim for the lost gold bullion, they must recover and produce the plates containing the serial numbers to the insurance company. It has been reported that the railway company is offering $1,000,000.00 in reward money for the recovering of these lost plates.
