A customer of INTL was informed that a 9.105 kg gold/silver dore bar went missing in Frankfurt airport on Monday. Brinks and Lufthansa are investigating. A dore bar has a distinct footprint and a one off 9kg bar presented to a refinery or dealer may appear unusual, so all refiners are asked to be aware of any such bar being presented to them.
