Men return $300,000 in gold dust found during Calif. maintenance job


Everyone is familiar with spring cleaning when one person’s junk can ultimately become another’s treasure. But in the instance of California heating, ventilation and air conditioning company (HVAC), Clark & Rush, they found something a little bit more sparkly than an old fashioned trinket.

UPI (United Press International) reported the HVAC’s Steve Ottley and his partner were conducting an ordinary installation in Sacramento when they came across 12 baby food jars containing gold dust worth more than $300,000.

"I still can't believe it today," Ottley said of the gold finding, according to Inquisitr. "It's unreal. We kind of just looked at each other and said 'wow.''"

After finding the gold filled baby jar, Clark & Rush did the noblest of noble things by reporting the finding and then offering the treasure to the owners of the property.

“That’s one promise we can’t make,” remarked Clark & Rush’s Mark Thyne to UPI on whether they can guarantee uncovering gold in the future, “but I can say this, the integrity and professionalism of Clark & Rush, every time we find this type of thing, we are always trustworthy and upfront.”

KUDOs to these two men for doing the right thing. If I were the homeowner, I would definitely reward them for doing the right thing. Not out of obligation or expectation, but because honesty and integrity is such a rare thing these days - especially in light of the meager economy we live in.
