GOLD A South Korean cleaner will miss out on a fortune after finding a stash of gold in a rubbish bin.


According to The Korea Times, the cleaner found seven gold bars – worth around 350 million won (£240,000 or $330,000) – whilst emptying a rubbish bin at Incheon International Airport on 26 April.

Each bar weighs 1kg/2.2lbs and were individually wrapped in newspapers.

Police suspect that their original owner threw them away in a hurry because they risked being caught, although as yet there is no proof the gold was connected to criminal activity.

The unnamed cleaner was thought to have been able to make a substantial claim on the gold thanks to South Korea’s ‘Finders Keepers’ law, which says the finder could claim between five and 20% of the gold’s total price (a maximum of 70m won, or £48,000/$65,000) if the gold remained unclaimed for six months.

However, the law doesn’t apply to employees on company property, and the airport issued a statement that the cleaner was “working as airport staff and it is a part of the cleaners’ job to find lost things.”

winning Biological Urinal Blocks and Biological Washroom and universal cleaners, which were originally introduced back in 1986.

Managing Director Angela Gill said: “We went with a refreshed outlook. We had an eye-catching new stand designed by Clip.

the market with a no hassle ‘plug and play’ option.

Derek Anderson, EBT’s Strategic Director, explained: “In a crowded market, simplicity is the key that makes this option particularly attractive as the package is designed to make the identification process quick and straightforward, in order to allow users to correctly specify the most appropriate replacement. Once selected, the new battery can be ordered for immediate delivery and swapped with the existing battery for minimum fuss and the least possible vehicle downtime.”

“There’s no denying it was an exhausting week, but there’s nothing quite like the thrill of extending our business all the way from Sussex across the globe. We spoke with prospective clients from at least four different continents which is just incredible. I think it speaks to the power of our products, as well as the talent of our team. I’m so excited to see where we can go from here, before we head back to the next InterClean in two years’ time.”

The motive cell design, manufactured using the latest production equipment and materials, delivers performance, reliability and a long service life. It is available in a variety of DIN dimensions and is engineered to DIN/ EN 60254-2 standards, ensuring full compliance and flexibility.

Derek continued: “Each Lucas motive battery comes complete in a plastic-coated steel container and is available in many sizes to suit all DIN configurations. They also come with insulated bolts and connectors, which increases safety and simplifies maintenance and repair.”
