You'll find some great information and tips here, but you'll
also be surprised by some of the topics and techniques that are
covered on our website. We take a broad view of treasure hunting,
so while there are pages on metal detecting and ghost
towns, there are also ones on searching for lost diamonds in
parking lots and other ways to make profitable discoveries of
many sorts. If there is something valuable to be found and taken
as your own, I consider that a treasure.
join an actual treasure hunt game in Colorado, with valuable
treasures and prizes? You'll be tracking down clues in some of
the most beautiful locations in the west. Even better, it's absolutely
free to join the hunt.
Note: Since starting this website a few years
ago, we have moved to Florida and I am no longer able to monitor
the clues to make sure they are still there. As a result, it
may not be possible to complete our challenge using the information
found here. But rest assured that if you give it a try, you will
see some beautiful places, and if you find enough of the clues
to win some of the minor prizes you will still be able to claim
them (and my email address will always be available on the contact page).
Buried Treasure at the Dump - James Howells,
of Newport, Wales, threw out his computer when it was damaged,

to get investors to fund an organised (and safe) dig that would

Find This Buried treasure!
Forrest Fenn hid millions of dollars' worth of gold and gems,
and he is inviting treasure hunters everywhere to come and find
it. At 82 he figured it is time to start giving away some of
