NO SIGN OF TREASURE ON PULAU NANGKA

Still no sign of treasure on Pulau Nangka, says Malacca CM – Bernama

April 30, 2014
A company which is carrying out a hunt for a multi-billion ringgit treasure belonging to the Malacca Sultanate on Pulau Nangka off the state, has failed to find any, to date.
Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron (pic) said today the four-month contract beginning January, given to Smart Partnership International (M) Sdn Bhd would end at midnight.
Tomorrow, the task would be continued by another firm, he said.
However, he said the new company would carry out its search in another area on the island, and would not continue the search at the same site.
"Actually, the search for the treasure on the island by numerous parties has been carried out since 25 years ago but to date, it has not been found," Idris told a media conference after chairing the state exco meeting today.
On Monday, state public works, public utilities, transport and project rehabilitation committee chairman Datuk Abdul Ghafaar Atan said work to drill through a rock wall, believed to be a door leading to the treasure chamber, was expected to be fully completed today.
Idris said the state government planned to turn Pulau Nangka into a tourist attraction if the fabled treasure was found.
