Vital Background Knowledge and Case Studies

This module is where we really dig in and get started. Let's go over the details of metal detecting, tuning, researching and digging.

Our major goal is always = RECOVERY!

You'll also read some key case histories of hunters who found some very valuable treasures. Read carefully because these true stories reveal many good treasure hunting secrets.

There Are Four Types of Professional Treasure Hunters

Discover the truth about how Treasure Hunters can be classified into four different categories. Just how serious are you? You can treat Treasure Hunting as a very serious hobby, or you can go full-time once you're ready.

Specialize in Land-Based Treasures: Metal Detecting

Most Treasure Hunters I know feel more comfortable on land than in the water. This module explains about the different types of land-based treasure projects you can pursue and recover.  

Beginner Metal Detecting Tips

Depending on your level of experience, this lesson may be a good refresher, or you may learn some very important tips and shortcuts to success.

Construction Site Treasure

It's extremely important to recognize where digging or excavations are beginning to take place. I once came across a place where the sidewalks were being replaced in an old neighborhood. I had my detector in the car with me. Within a half-hour, I was able to recover about 25 old coins, none newer than 1938. Excavation sites can be worth pure gold.

Finds After Sunset?

A good detector is very sensitive to electrical interference in many cases. Detecting at different times of day will produce different results right in the same location. At night, electrical activity is usually reduced and you can finely tune your detector to be more sensitive to find deeper treasure. Weather conditions matter too.

Rental Adventures

There are a number of ways to make money with a metal detector. I once owned a store selling several brands of detectors. I always kept 2 detectors to use as rentals. Sometimes, I was hired to find specific lost jewelry. I was paid a basic hourly fee + an incentive bonus if I made a successful recovery. I also taught half day courses for small groups. I think you'll enjoy this case story. It reveals a huge "tuning"  secret that will automatically multiply your results.

Caches and Historic Treasures

This type of Treasure Hunting usually requires a lot of research and painstaking efforts. You may go on for months (or even years) without success. However, when you make your first cache discovery, you'll be addicted. This is one of the most profitable forms of Treasure Hunting that I have seen. 

Gold Coin Cache Find

This case history reveals some great tips and little-known secrets for recovering caches of gold coins. There are thousands of them out there just waiting for you to come along. 

Blocker’s Pond

This case history holds many valuable details and secrets. Proper historical research always ends up being the foundation of significant gold recoveries in the field.

Water-Based Treasure

I got certified as an open water diver when I was 16 years old. I began diving in the lakes of Michigan whenever I had the extra time. I never came home empty handed. I was always amazed at the different kinds of valuables I could find with and without a metal detector. I always focused on the designated swim areas out under the marker buoys in about 15 feet of water.

Ocean Beaches

This lesson reveals one of my very best secrets for finding serious quantities of lost gold jewelry every day! This is one of the most fun and productive ways to find lost gold that I can imagine. Read about my results and about the people who revealed the secret to me. At today's gold prices, I could become a millionaire in 2 years while living on the beach.

Underwater and Sunken Treasure

Sunken treasure is the game of serious professionals. Many of these types of projects require financing due to operating and equipment costs. However, when you do locate the "mother-lode," investors are eager to know more about the opportunity. Technology is superior and less expensive than ever before. There are thousands of virgin galleon wrecks all over the world. Always check local laws before proceeding too far.

Professional Services

Once in a while I receive requests to help people and companies to find and recover specific gold targets. My last 3 contracts have paid off enormously well. One of my contracts was in Brazil. The other 2 were in Ecuador. You can do this anywhere in the world if you specialize in it and know more than anyone else about the geology, history and access points.

A Drone can help you save a lot of time in locating historical and virgin ground to hunt. It will give you a whole new perspective of the lay of the land. You can multiply your daily earnings dramatically with this tool!

How Treasure Hunters Use Drone Technology to Hunt for Buried Treasure

If you ask anyone what they think about treasure hunting, the image of a man with a metal detector will immediately pop in their mind. For so many years, it was the go-to method of any treasure hunter hoping to find a huge loot.

However, we live in more modern times now, and enthusiasts are using more and more technology to help them locate the buried and hidden treasure easier, faster, and with better precision.
