The much-anticipated “Open Sesame” to the treasure cave on Pulau Nangka is expected to happen tomorrow, revealing the kind of trove and how much of it has been hidden away there over the past hundreds of years.
State executive councillor Datuk Abdul Ghafaar Atan said tunnelling to reach the site had reached 90% and there were just two days left (from yesterday) to get to the location.
“The entrance to the cave, the main entry point, has also been found and could be opened in the next two days,” he said after visiting the work site yesterday.
He said Smart Partnership International (M) Sdn Bhd, the company commissioned since January to detect and salvage the treasure, had until tomorrow to locate the site.
