Gold, silver buried

Gold, silver buried in World Trade Center rubble

"11.8 metric tons of gold worth an estimated $110 million and 30.2 million ounces of silver valued at $121 million are buried in the rubble below one of the collapsed buildings in the World Trade Center"

A metric ton (I thought it was spelled tonne but it's spelled "ton" in this article) is approximately 2205 lbs.
