Long Range Detector does it Work?

Tuesday, October 04th, 2011 9:51am

Long Range Detector that works is the dream of every treasure hunter and prospector.

The question is do they work? There are numerous long range detectors for gold and silver as well as for other non-ferrous metals. Some long range detectors from Germany, South America and a lot from USA claim their hand held long range detectors are the best or their antenna driven model is superb, and still others claim that their computer gizmo long range detectors reigns supreme when it comes to finding the elusive hidden treasure. Most are expensive and do not work!

1.) Our Long Range Detector for Gold, silver and other valuables has been perfected for over twenty years and proven every time it goes into the field. The doubt of its ability is human nature but the proving of its ability to find known hidden treasure usually happens every time we go into the field: Jimmy, Ronnie, Bud and Matt crowded into the suburban with me as we went from one target to another, “lets go to Matt’s farm!” was heard from the back seat.

I didn’t know Matt was in the back seat as we hadn’t been introduced. Upon arrival I asked where they wanted me to set up? “The driveway is fine.” Jimmy replied.

“There is no gold here.” I announced.

“Try silver”. Matt retorted.

Selecting the silver mode, I discovered two silver targets. “There is a silver target over 35 pounds over in the direction of that tree and another over by the barn, do you want me to walk it out and show where it is?

Four men in unison hollered, “NO!”

After realizing that our

Long Range Detector had been tested and passed with perfect accuracy,

the men told me that the two caches of silver had been buried eight years ago.

2.) Brian was proud when he told me his non-ferrous coins were buried in amongst a concrete foundation. The Long Range Detector took less than a minute to disregard the rebar and cement and home in on the coins. “How can I hide from your machine?” he exclaimed.

3.) Randy and Roy had bought the property from a Y2Ker who had used a lot of drugs and probably forgot some of the buried provisions. “We want to see if you can find what we have buried before we have you look for what he has left!”

Once again the “testing” of the machine and operator begins. As each secreted cache was revealed the chagrin of the two men was manifested. “If it has been in the ground 12 months the Long Range Detector will find it!” I announced.

4.) Milford had a business on the edge of town and needed to stop before we went to the field to find a 200 year old lost gold treasure. After a few minutes he came back to the truck with a sheepish grin and asked if the Long Range Detector could locate his diamonds that he had hid in his shop several years prior. The Long Range Detector was set up in the alley behind the shop and seconds later I walked through the back door and into the office at the rear of his store. “The diamonds are in this filing cabinet, and lets see, oh yeah, there are more behind this wall.” he stood there with he mouth agape, speechless.

5.) Wade’s grandad had hidden cash, (paper currency) in a buried glass jar. The buried money in a mason jar had not been found since grandad passed away. He had buried coins in canning jars too, but no one was sure if they had retrieved them or not. The money buried in glass jars had zinc lids and were oxidized but integrally intact. The money was dry but buried four feet deep. Although no coins in mason jars were found, the Long Range Detector ended 18 years of searching for Wade’s buried money in glass jars hidden by his grandad.

6.) Ed pulled into the ranch gate and stopped short of the ranch house by 500 yards. “I want to see if your Long Range Detector is worth a pinch of powdered owl droppings!” he exclaimed. “Lets see if you find anything from here!” he retorted.

I went through the setting for silver and found nothing, Ed grinned. I set the Long Range Detector for paper currency, and found no hint of cash, Ed was stern. Gold was last and immediately pointed in the direction of the corral. I walked to the pole gate and announced that he had his gold buried at 4 feet deep on the Northeast side of the horse corral, as I drew the “X” on the ground. Ed spit tobacco, coughed and confirmed “You’re right on the money, now I guess I gotta hide it again!”

Everyone wants to know if the Long Range Detector really works. After finding dozens of known “tests”, we feel confident that the Long Range Detector is very accurate, reliable and will find whatever you are looking for.

7.) Sally was almost eighty, full of wisdom and hesitant to believe in “swizzle sticks and ‘lectronics”. “Sonny, come take a ride with me.” Sally commanded. Sally drove from her home, downtown and parked behind a commercial building. “Now show me!” she exclaimed. “I want to see if you can fool an ole lady!”

Not real sure what kind of test I was being asked to perform, I asked, “Ms. Sally, what do you want me to search for in the middle of town?”

She replied, “Just look for gold.”

The Long Range Detector blinked as I set up for refined gold and immediately pointed at the back of the building. Ms Sally grinned as we drove to the front of the modest bank. “I have gold in my safety deposit box! she chided. “You pass!”

8.)

Confirmation that the Long Range Detector Works.

The trip was a grueling 21 hours of flight, two hours of jeep shaking, a wade across a stream and a ½ hour walk. The subject was convoluted enough to be a book. Three years of excavation using the entire village workforce, an unscrupulous American foreman, $600,000 of investor’s money, clandestine ABC overflights to determine that the treasure mysteriously vaporized from the time it was discovered with primitive equipment, payoffs, secret, redemption (turning the gold into cash) international arms deals, more ABC surveillance, and now the investors wanted us to prove if the gold treasure was still in the base of a landmark mountain somewhere in the Southern Philippines.
Two of the American investors met us at the airport. The unscrupulous American foreman met us at the village. The foreman had moved his new family back to the US when he announced the discovery of an empty chamber that housed no gold.

His Western hometown was awash with rumors of many cash expenditures upon his arriving home. His parents were world travelers with many new international business connections, not all of them legal or nice.
The investors wanted to know if any treasure was still there as the foreman said there was nothing there after digging for 3 years and even after paying a firm to confirm the treasure was there before digging began.

The clouds began to form right from the start. The foreman was smooth and nice until we arrived in the Philippines. He then started coming up with restrictions, “no talking with the villagers as we went through their village”, we could not tell the villagers of our results, “no pictures of the entourage”, enter into a non-disclosure which we did not sign as he wasn’t our client, then a threat as we were about to take the jeep ride, “It was too close to dark and it would not be safe for Anglos”. I guess he thought he was immune to danger as he had lived there 3 years and had a native wife. He wanted us to wait another day before going to the mountain, we did not.

It took less than 5 minutes for the machine to confirm the ABC’s conclusion that nothing was in the mountain any longer.

The investors were not pleased that their treasure had been stolen, but happy they were not going to enter an agreement to spend more money to dig deeper in hopes of finding more of the promised gold.

Once again a confirmation was made that the machine worked. We didn’t stick around as the foreman and family were charged with arms dealing with worldwide terrorist and fraud upon the investors.

It turns out the villagers helped transport the bullion out to a new road built by the government (instead of a very steep footpath), foreman took a private boat to Hong Kong, inter-arms dealing, deceit, payola, payola miscreants and skullduggery. A very volatile dangerous situation that has not been totally resolved yet.

9.)We were introduced to another group of Multinational investors that spent ½ million dollars in the Philippines on 17 targets. The first target was an eyewitness account of where the Japanese hid the gold. At 9 years old, Rizel, had watched from the top of a coconut tree, the Japanese military squad bury the “treasure”.

His story was that the site was “in the family” continually since WWII. The shaft was 55 feet deep costing the investors over 75,000 dollars. Water was pouring into the shaft fast enough to require a full time pump in order for the laborers to dig any deeper. The workers had built a compound over the top of the shaft for cooking and sleeping. Fifteen men and women had worked for two months in very dangerous conditions to ferret out the “prize”. That was guaranteed to be there!

The machine blinked once and I was left with the miserable task of telling the entire group that their efforts were in vain. The treasure was not there. The 70 year old eyewitness sat emotionless as the reality of the missing treasure surged through the crushed crowd.

I sat down beside him and started over with an interpreter. “which tree were you in when you observed the Japanese?”, “Was the land in your families’ possession ever since the burial?” Was someone here on the land every day since the burial?” “When did your father pass away?” “Where were you when he died?”
He replied, “I was in the army for 15 years…”

Enough said, the machine was vindicated again. The machine revealed that there never had been treasure in the 16 previous holes the investors had spent ½ million to dig.

Underground Discovery

Thursday, January 08th, 2009 10:03am

Underground Discovery and exploration has been enhanced with new technology and computers. Long range detection,  now locates ferrous and non-ferrous metals, gems and jewels. We are also able to find underground voids, caves and tunnels, disturbed ground (dug graves, pits or holes that have been dug and filled in again, even hundreds of years ago up to 200 feet deep).

Underground discovery uses technology FAR SUPERIOR to “Ground Penetrating Radar”,  up to 200 feet deep. Imagine being able to locate currency, buried metals such GOLD, SILVER, Platinum,  rare earth minerals etc. without ever turning a shovelful of dirt.

The long range detector will determine the exact location of a buried object (one ounce coin up to 450 feet away, more coins or larger objects such as bullion bars can be detected up to a mile away) . Imagine being able to determine how deep the target is and what amount of mass is there (no digging). Brass, bronze and other antiquities can be found with equal success.

Underground discovery technology makes underwater discovery possible,  from above the water (from a boat). Spanish galleons of the ocean or loot in a lake can be pinpointed from above. Locate the buried treasure that your grandfather buried on the home place before you sell the property.  Find the buried treasure with our underground discovery service! We travel to you.

SILVER TREASURE

Thursday, September 01st, 2011 6:46pm

treasure caveSilver treasure is on everyone’s mind at over $45 an ounce and gold at $1800 an ounce! Metal detector sales are up, silver treasure hunters are spawned with every new find!

The hole was only about his waist size in the ground. The rock tossed in the hole verified that the hole was deep. The dark hole stared like a pirate’s eye from beneath the ground. Skirting the cave he searched for an entrance that would be safer than dropping 65 feet to the cave floor. The crevice yawned sideways only about 16 inches wide at the largest gap and slightly downhill from the gaping eye hole directly over the cave. A stick 4 feet long to strike the walls and tunnel like crevice for rattlesnake coils preceded the crawler as he explored for a way into the cave. Suddenly the tight crevice opened into an amphitheater, 120 feet across and 65 foot tall. Stalactites hung from the ceiling like icicles, stalagmites billowed on the floor like the king’s throne. The majestic sight was illuminated by the subdued glow of the indirect sun through the “eye” hole in the very top of the roof. treasure icicles

The second trip into the cave included flashlights and batteries. The year 1645 was carved on the base of a stalagmite. Men’s names and crude maps were carved into the lime deposits. The number “4” was a predominate carving. The year was 1961, the place was southeast of Nageezi and the “4” proclaimed a cache of Spanish silver. There was no “R” symbol to show that the silver treasure had been removed. Ned returned home to study his hand transferred pencil maps traced from the walls of the caves. Very little Spanish codes had been released from the archives of Mexico City or Madrid at this time. However Ned pieced together enough information to return to the cave with pick and shovel to uncover a fortune in silver bullion. Ned had no way of knowing that the lightning bolt symbol denoted a Spanish death trap…

65 foot caveUnlike the movies, “X” never marks the spot of a Spanish treasure! Ned dug at his “logical” choice, deduced from hours of study. He was lucky in more ways than one. Two and a half feet deep, Ned’s shovel nicked an eighty pound, sand cast bullion bar of silver. There was no rejoicing, no screaming of happiness, no one to hear the cries of ecstasy, just silence as the realization set in. Typical primordial action took over, “now that I’ve found it, get it out as soon as possible!”

As the last of the 123 bars was being pulled from their crypt, the ground shuddered and the lights went out! There had been a cave in, preplanned 316 years ago! The lightning bolt had struck. Ned couldn’t see anything. Both flashlights were gone, buried in the rubble. He could barely breath with the pressure on his chest. His legs were trapped. Fortunately his shovel was at his fingers. The dust was still hovering 20 minutes later, the afternoon light was dim and fading through the “eye” hole. To make the situation worse, Ned’s family did not know where he was.

Groping in the dark, Ned discovered a huge boulder had fallen directly into the trough that the bars had lain in. Ned had just turned to reposition a flashlight behind or he would have been bent over and crushed beneath the boulder. Face down Ned began to scrape the dirt from under his chest with the shovel. The loose dirt moved easily but the angle was all wrong to make fast progress. He tired very fast. Two hours later, he had removed enough dirt from under him to rotate his hips. It was now pitch black inside and outside of the cave. “Don’t panic and pace yourself”, Ned repeated to himself over and over again. About midnight Ned pulled the leg on the bottom out of his boot, giving the other leg room to wiggle free. He didn’t dare try to get his other boot out of the rubble in the dark. A harvest moon met him as he emerged from the cave and he filled his lungs with crisp fresh air!

Ned got home just before daylight and worried the entire next day that someone would find his cave and Spanish silver treasure before he could return!

Ned secreted his Spanish silver bars away at his home. Shortly thereafter Ned came down with pneumonia. While in the hospital, Ned’s wife fled to Arizona with all 123 bars, (not known what kind of truck she used or help she acquired…). Ned died penniless.

This is the first of three caches that were found in this cave since 1961.

Buried treasure, Crock Jars and Gold coins

Sunday, March 13th, 2011 12:30pm

Buried treasure always tops the list with gold coins coming in as the number one lost treasure story!

I leaned close as the elderly nursing home resident began to recite. He began slow and in a very low rhythmic voice, “Mr. Canteberry raised horses just a mile and a half out of town as a crow flies, but 5 miles by road in the crook of Boggy Slough Drainage. He didn’t come to town much, as the government took delivery of horses at his ranch. Every year the government buyer showed up to buy all the horses Mr. Canteberry had for sale. He insisted on gold coin for payment and in exchange would sell to no other buyer. Mr. Canteberry raised hay and wheat that he bartered to the Hightower Mercantile for food and supplies that the ranch needed. (He seldom paid for anything in gold coin.) Mr. Canteberry didn’t much care for banks either, said they was inconvenient and not to be trusted. My Dad had been his foreman for most of his adult life and worked as a wrangler some of his late teens. Mr. Canteberry never married, had no kin as we knowed of. When Mr. Canteberry began to feel poorly, quit riding and spent most of the day in a cowhide rocker on the front porch, is when he called my Dad in… Called him “Rodg”, his name was Rodger”.

“Rodg I got a sickness thats takin me out. I want you to have the place and run it like you have for me, I’ll be goin to town tomorrow an see the lawyer. I’ve saved all my gold coins and buried them in four Red Wing crock jars with zinc lids so as to not rust, in the catch trap just a couple of feet deep. Use your head Rodg, they’ll be easy to find when you need em. (Trap is a small fenced pasture.)”

“The next day Dad found Mr. Canteberry still in bed, asleep for all eternity. Dad continued to run the ranch cause the government agent was supposed to be there in a month. Four days before the horse buyer was to arrive, we had another visitor, (I was working for my Dad on the ranch as a wrangler), Mr. Canteberry’s nephew.”

“Reginald Peterson tiz the name, I’m here to take over Uncle Canteberry’s estate!”.

“Dad told him the buyer was due on Friday and that all the horses had been groomed, shod and ready to show. The nephew was excited. Friday came and went and the buyer never showed. A letter on Monday dealt the killing blow. The Great War was over, trucks were taking over and the government had no need for horses.”

“Reg called Dad in fuming.”

“I’ve been to the bank, there is no money, there will be no more money from the government and I will not be a farmer! Where is my uncle’s life accumulation?”

“Dad replied honestly that he did not know. The nephew held an auction and sold the horses, then the ranch to some friend of Reggie’s from New Jersey! Dad seemed to have the life stomped out of him, six months later we buried him. I got married and went to work in the peanut fields drivin tractor.”

“I thought of the buried treasure of gold coins in crock jars several times in my life but it felt like betrayal to Dad and Mr. Canteberry to share it with descendants from New Jersey. Besides the trap was over an acre! I am the only person living that knows there are four crock jars of gold coins known as buried treasure still on the ole Canteberry Place.”

Underground Discovery deciphered the story and set up within the ½ mile radius from the old Canteberry Homestead with the Slough to their backs. The Long Range Gold Detector locked onto “a target” within seconds. Moving to within 50 feet of the target, we discovered that there were actually four targets within 3 feet of each other, confirming part of the story.

As an FYI, ONE crock jar (Red Wing made a quart, 2 quart and one gallon canning crock jar) of gold coins equals 3/4 million in metal price… the total numismatic value is yet to be determined! The nursing home resident, makes frequent shopping trips, has a private room and a personal attendant…

Lost treasure is where you find it

Monday, March 14th, 2011 11:53am

Lost treasure is where you find it, and you never know where that might be!

On a recent job just inside the Alabama border we met our client’s neighbor who had come to naysay our recovery efforts. She and her husband own two small farms 50 miles away. She mentioned they were thinking of remodeling one which meant filling in an old well on the back porch.

“Don’t do that until I check it,” I told her. “Back in the day, folks often hid their valuables in wells. You might cover up a fortune and never know it.”

She was skeptical. It just happened I was heading for another job a few hundred miles north of her place so I arranged a detour. She met me at the gate and on the drive to her place she asked why anyone would hide anything in a well.

“In this area, there was one big reason,” I said. “It was called the Civil War. When soldiers, especially Yankee soldiers, were in the area people would hurry to hide anything of value. The family silver, gold coins, anything that water wouldn’t ruin could be tied in a table cloth, dropped down the well and fished out later. For one reason or another, not all of it was recovered creating a whole genre of lost treasure. You’d be surprised what we’ve found.”

“I’ll never be that lucky,” she said.

Unfortunately, she was right about the well. I told her to fill it and enjoy her new porch. “While I’m here, give me a tour of the other farm,” I suggested. “We have time before I have to get to the next job.”

The second farm didn’t appear as old as the first. The house was built about 70 years ago. Several hundred yards down the road in a field was an abandoned low roofed, clapboard, two-room shack. “What’s that,” I asked.

“This farm originally had hundreds of acres. It was share cropped. That’s one of the share cropper’s cabins,” she explained as we pulled into the drive.

“Let’s take a look at that. There could be a fortune in hidden lost treasure under the floor.”

Still not believing, she laughed and said, “The kids have been all over this place with a metal detector. If you need rusty horse shoes, window weights, or wire, you’re in business.”

“A metal detector only reaches down about 15 inches,” I explained. The equipment we use for Underground Discovery leaves standard metal detectors and the lost treasure they never find in the dirt. No pun intended.” It only took a few minutes to set up the Long Range Gold Detector. Bingo!!! We got a hit. “Just for the fun of it, let’s see if there’s any silver out there, too.” Double Bingo!!! Another hit.

We shooed a couple of mules out of the way as we walked through the pasture trying to pinpoint our target. It was ten feet in front of that share cropper’s shack. We found a quart mason jar filled with gold and silver coins buried three feet deep under an old post that had once been part of a hitching rail (commonly referred to as a “post bank”). Another lost treasure found!

The jar we found may have been small but it held some valuable coins. How valuable? Let’s just say my new friend is enjoying her back porch…at her new vacation home in Belize. Underground Discovery has another “believer” to verify our results.

Buried treasure or hidden lost treasure is truly where you find it. In most cases there are no surviving stories of treasure or treasure map to direct you to the cache. In this case the “unbeliever” might have sold the farm and the treasure without ever knowing of a lost treasure. Before you sell the family ranch or just want to know if you are sitting on buried treasure, e-mail us using the form below or call for a free consultation 480 463 7464.

NOTE:
Underground Discovery’s equipment was able to search the 60 foot open well without diving equipment, cameras or claustrophobia.
There were only 4 gold coins in this cache, however one had a date and mint mark that made it extremely valuable.
FYI – one $20 gold piece is valued at about $1800.00 today, spot price (metal only) Read another Treasure Hunt.

Long Range Detector for Gold

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010 12:51pm

Long Range Detector for Gold is our perfect tool for treasure hunting. I spent more time airborne than in my seat as the 4 wheel drive pickup popcorned across the rocks, potholes, washes and gravel roads. I had started tracking the signal from 12 miles away. All prelude tests showed that I had a bona fided, refined, gold target. I triangulated by driving at right angles to find the distance and direction. I crossed three mountain ridges, valleys and sides before finally arriving at a non-descript open plane. I couldn’t help but but think, “What a poor choice to bury a treasure, why there are no markers, signs, symbols or any place to put them!”

Stepping out of the truck, I began to “Walk out” the signal… twelve miles from my original “setup” point as a crow flies and 53 yards from the pickup, I announced, “Its here! Just 3 1/2 feet deep!” The Long Range Detector for Gold worked again! This cache has been written about, hypothesized, lied about and overlooked for at least 88 years. The digging of rocks and roots finally gave way to the prize! The gold gleamed in the afternoon sun as it saw the light of day for the first time in scores of years. The sand clung to the bars wrapped in red cloth. (Any dowser would have asked how we overcame the color red?)

This wasn’t in a foreign country or hundreds of miles from nowhere. This story came from the call of a rancher who had a hunch about a certain treasure story (later we found out he was considering selling the ranch and wanted to make sure he wasn’t leaving the treasure behind!). The treasure was in the ranchers’ pasture, within sight of a nearby town, USA.

Your treasure story can be verified with our use of the Long Range Detector for Gold. Drop us an email using the form below or call 480 463 7464.

Our long range detector will find gold, silver, coins, jewelry, currency (paper) or bullion. Our long distance locator eliminates timeless searching. The Long Range Detector for Gold can find the hidden treasure you have always known was there. Our machines and team are willing to travel to you, even internationally.

Treasure in TÜRKİYE

Friday, July 23rd, 2010 8:39pm

arriving TurkeyTreasure in Turkey. Just the mention of Turkey has brought a glimmer to many a treasure hunter’s eye. This is the cradle of much of civilization. Abraham brought his father there to Haran. The Assyrians, Sumerians, Hittites, Seleucids, Greeks, Romans and Ottoman Empire have all possessed it at one time or another. It is the bridge between Europe, Asia and the Near East. The ancients have buried there people with their fortunes for thousands of years.

Yet don’t go there and hunt without all of the permits in place. In one small region that I visited, twenty American treasure hunters were serving ten years each for hunting without a permit within the first six months of 2010 alone. And several more were arrested and awaiting trial…. Don’t even think about it. A report about our team coming to a central region, how we were traveling and with whom preceded us within a short time of leaving Istanbul.

Old TumbBut we were part of a legal and invited archaeological expedition. We carried no shovels or excavation equipment. We were performing non-invasive surveys only. And the adventure will not soon be forgotten.

After the long plane ride, a ferry trip at night across the Marmar.

Our mission was to see if we could locate and image ancient tombs. Our first stop was to see a tomb that had been opened about 100 years ago. Here is the tomb and one of the identifying inscriptions.

The opening of the tomb

Dr. over Tomb Inscriptions
Inscription within the tomb.

 

Examining the top of a tomb. Notice the inscription in the lower left portion, behind the yellow flowers.

And then it was on to great adventure.

We began to search for our unknown target, (a royal tomb, thousands of years old), using a specialized, proprietary, long distance frequency generator and confirmed our long distance location with our imaging equipment. We not only discovered the tombs, but began to see an overall picture. We are now able to identify the year it was built and from there began to identify who was buried there. Imaging also allowed us to discover depth and approximate amount of gold buried in each tomb.

Tomb Discovery Scans of the two tombs. These tombs were located by long distance location equipment (within 5 feet from a distance of nearly a mile away) and then imaged. The depth showed to be 10.14 feet to the covers (3 meters+). This was openly shared with those that were with us. What we did not share was there was a large amount of gold in the tombs that was at 24-26 feet.

After our departure, a group including the secret police began to dig the targets without permits. We did secure the photos and have placed one photo of a lid available to all.

Tomb lid

Unfortunately, this was a tomb raid. All involved were arrested and are now serving ten years each for their part in it. I have been informed that several tons of gold were removed by officials from the Turkish government.

Other tombs were located some of them valuable in contents, some not. But important data was collected that allowed us to understand location and identification of tombs in Turkey. Photos below show a part of the identification system.

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010 6:28pm

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps are not created like a normal map, you must first understand it is not the traditional “go ten paces from the palm tree” that Hollywood shows in the movies. You must consider the overview of how the treasures were hidden. Most treasure hunters begin a knights of the golden circle, (KGC), treasure hunt by discovery of a single or combined treasure sign. A single sign is never good for finding a treasure for any site, but especially when we are dealing with the KGC sites. When you interpret KGC data of any kind, it must be considered within the context. If you have a single sign it has little meaning if it stands alone. It may be a reversal sign. It may be a decoy sign, sending you in the wrong direction entirely when you understand the context. It may even be an old Spanish symbol as the KGC left some Spanish treasure in place and reworked the signs to make the Spanish treasure difficult to find. The KGC has always hidden a clue within the reworking of those signs to show they were the ones that reworked them. So let’s get an overview of the Knights of the Golden Circle methods of leaving data behind to identify a KGC site or treasure.

The largest treasure map for a KGC site would be the template. These can be very large, especially in the American southwest and Mexico where you can see for a long distance. They grow shorter in areas such as Missouri or Arkansas where the trees block the long distance view. Many very large symbols are carved into the rocks, sometimes the entire rock is carved into the shape of an animal. Yes, Pedro, the KGC did carve huge turtles as did the Spanish. The KGC also carved symbols into the Spanish turtles to show how they either relocated the treasure or misdirected future treasure hunters. The template can only be interpreted in the context of all of the symbols on the site. You must first locate the starting point. This varies from area to area. Remember, there were many groups that worked within the structure of the Knights of the Golden Circle so each site will vary and must be considered within the context. Call us, 480 463 7464

In article two we will consider the context for interpretation of KGC treasure maps further. You may view all of Dr. Melancon’s articles on Knights of the Golden Circle by selecting the next article from the right hand column or click here for Article 2.

Digging for Treasure

Monday, November 07th, 2011 12:45pm

digging for treasureDigging for treasure is not with a shovel and three scoops later, “Voi la”, you uncover the top of a treasure chest! The more valuable the treasure, the deeper it is buried; is the rule. The average treasure (less than $100,000) is buried at a depth between four and six feet. This is well beyond the depth range of 99.9% of all metal detectors. Our long range detector locates gold and silver up to 200 feet deep. Shallow treasure is not the topic of this article. Large treasures are buried very deep and this is where our story begins.

The Spanish King, Charles II, decreed that all treasure in the Americas that could not be brought back to Spain before the American Indian revolt of 1680 was to be buried at least 30 feet deep or 30 feet of tunnel from the outside of the mountain. Penalty for burying a treasure too shallow was death! Hundreds of Spanish mines “pickled” (stored) refined bars of gold and silver at least 30 feet deep. Extensive death traps were incorporated to prevent the occasional robber from stealing the treasure (Do your research of “Death Traps” before digging for treasure!). Spain did send expeditions back to open old mines and send refined bars back to Spain. Many sites are still waiting to be found as the ownership of the land changed hands from French to American, Spanish to American, and many miners never made it back to Spain with the secret code to relocate the hidden caches due to time, death, disease or tragedy.

The KGC found some of these hidden Spanish treasure sites and added to them. Digging for treasure in the USA or foreign countries requires planning for safety, a shortcut can cost you your life! In other countries deep hidden treasures may have a different history of why they are there but all are similar in that the treasures are buried very deep.

The pickup had bounced, jostled, and shook for 45 minutes under a southern, hot summer, Arizona sky, through rocks, cactus, thorn brush and dust only to halt beside a “turtle rock” marker that had been the catalyst for the upcoming 85 foot deep, hand dug, solid rock, vertical shaft that ended in a circular winding room, that was illuminated with bare light bulbs on a trotline of wire. Peering into the deep hole, I couldn’t imagine putting this much effort forth based upon an “interpretation” of a rock message 325 years old… Everyone knows a “turtle rock” means gold, but very little additional information was available to indicate the exact spot to dig. When digging for treasure without the technology of the long range detector, a “gut feeling of location can lead to nowhere.

We were hired to use our long range detector, (gold locating machine) to see how far they were from the target. Our gold locator has the ability to measure an ionic residual that forms a sphere around the target. The residual has a half life that remains in the ground for the same time that it is buried before retrieval. If the target has been buried for a hundred years, the residual will last another 100 years after the target is dug up. Unfortunately few retrievers of treasure go to the rock maps and carve the message that “they dug up the treasure”! In this case the gold locator found no residual at all. This indicates that the gold treasure was never at this spot or the residual time has run out and the target was taken over 100 years ago. The client called our machine the “Dream Crusher”! However when used in advance of digging for treasure the gold locator is the “Dream Maker”!

This next story was extremely interesting in that it included an “eye witness”(Eyewitnesses can dim with age and embellish with an audience, but the long range detector machine does not lie…). A hunter and his wife were camped in Southwest NM on public land. The hunter discovered an air shaft to a mine and crawled 60 feet down a precarious angle to the cache room. He found skeletons that dated over 100 years in the past, stacks of gold bullion and gold coins. He brought one gold bar to the surface, blew the air shaft shut with dynamite for fear someone would discover his “glory hole”, showed the bar to his banker when he rented a safety deposit box, got into a fight, accidentally killed the man, went to prison and got out in the late 1980’s. Upon release from prison the hunter found that the banker was gone and so was the gold bar from the bank. The hunter “continued” digging for treasure until his health failed. The hunter/con found our client and told his story and sold part of his interest, if the client would finance and excavate, as the old hunter was broke.

The gold locator was set up just a few feet from the excavation site. The clients had sheared off part of the mountain looking for the collapsed air shaft with a D-9 dozer. In addition to the mountain shearing, our clients had brought in an excavator with a 30 foot depth capacity and dug down past where the target should have been at a cost of $380,000. These intense attempts at digging for treasure were all in vain. The gold locator machine showed no residual whatsoever… If there was gold stacked for a hundred years and one was taken in the mid 70’s then the residual would still show up 35 years later (even if all the gold had been taken in 1975). We could only conclude that the entire story was false and our clients had been duped in a scam. The machine does not lie!

In another southern country, the entire village was benefiting from the treasure recovery. Dozens of diggers toiled daily, numerous cooks and servers smiled as we arrived. A state of happiness was prevalent. The Client told us the story of signs, symbols, legends and interpretations, we listened intently. The diggers were digging for treasure at 265 feet, and 8 months into excavation, all by hand, no mechanized tools whatsoever. We tried to find rhyme or reason as to the decision to dig in the present location, we found none. The gold locator found no residual. The client asked us to change to the silver setting, we reset the machine to locate silver with the same results. Nada, no residual! Our client spoke in earnest, “The treasure has to be here, the entire village is depending upon it!” The machine will find treasure only if it is there or has been there…

We had a client that needed us in a foreign country, that had been digging for 6 years. Total expense, $783,000, total dug shafts, 13, total treasure found, zero. The diggers had been told where to dig based upon rock maps, history, and in one case, an eye witness. The gold locating machine started the process of elimination. The first shaft was 45 feet deep, 4’ X 4′ square (with caisson), had 4 staging rooms at least 12’ X 12’ each and a continuous water pump to keep the water level low enough to keep digging. A psychic had told the client that he missed the target by 3 feet. After three re-directions by the psychic, we were called to locate the treasure. Within minutes the gold locator pinpointed the treasure, 14 feet from the search area, within 28 feet of the surface. 14 feet is just as close as 14 miles if you do not know the exact location. The next 8 targets (dug shafts up to 87’ deep) never had a treasure anywhere near them. In the process of confirming the remainder of the dug shafts we discovered an unknown large target that the client then secured a contract on.

The KGC “treasure depository” was located in the hills of Kentucky. The dowser had pinpointed the largest concentration of silver and gold bullion and advised that it was 69 feet deep. Our client brought in two excavators with 30 foot “reach”, a D-8 Cat “dozer” and a front end loader. The overburden was removed to enable the excavators to reach the target. Winter arrived and the project had to shut down after 45 days of operation. Spring is a time of hope that the project could resume. Thirty days later the treasure seems to be as a ghost, always moving. Once again the dowser pointed and the engines roared. Our client is calling every few days asking for advice only using the present protocols. We said we didn’t have a clue until we could bring our gold locator to the site. The year waned and winter once again shut down the treasure search. The dowser insisted, “the treasure is close”. Spring brought the phone call that had us travel to the “depository”. The gold/silver locator immediately pointed across the valley floor to an opposing mountainside location that was hiding gold and silver. Our client secured a new permit in the correct location.

The comments range from glee to despair:

      • “Thanks for showing us the exact spot and depth! Thanks for saving us hundreds of thousands of dollars!”

 

      • “If you could have been here 6 months ago you would have saved us $420,000!”

 

      • “If your machine had of been here in the beginning we would have the treasure out by now!”

 

      • “You could have saved us all this money and time!”

 

      • “With your help, we would have known it wasn’t there and never started!”

 

      • “Your fee is pennies compared to what we have lost!”

 

      • “Will you help us on our next project before we start breaking ground?”

 

    • “I lost all I had, and it was never there!”

If you are digging for treasure and would like to focus on the true target give us a call for a free consultation. Before you start spending money digging for treasure let us pinpoint the location for you. If you are reasonably sure you know where the treasure is hidden but would like to confirm if it has been removed, or is it there, or how deep is the treasure, call us before digging for treasure or email us with the form below. 480 463 7464

Underground Exploration

Friday, September 04th, 2009 10:25am

Underground Exploration by Underground Discovery is a three step process. Using the latest equipment and technology underground exploration tells us; if there is a target in the subject area, is the target an ore, bullion, coins, paper currency, void, cave, tunnel, prior excavation, ferrous or non-ferrous metal, and how deep the target is. Underground exploration:

      • Starts first with a proprietary frequency generator that can pinpoint non-ferrous metals at a distance of 3+ miles (5 kilometers) away. Our specialized team will confirm if the target is indeed underground at the subject area and then confirm on location the precise area that needs to be subjected to underground pulse induction and/or then underground imaging.

• Second, we use a pulse induction detector (detects up to thirty feet deep) for ferrous or non-ferrous metal. All targets deeper than 30 feet will be revealed with underground exploration using our electronic underground imaging equipment and our electronic pin pointer.

• Third, our underground imaging equipment is used to receive a signal that emanates from the center of the earth, called a gauss. This gauss “ray” signal comes up through the crust of the earth and defrays as it hits any of the above mentioned targets. The software of this equipment receives the gauss signal and identifies the target by outline and color allowing us through underground exploration to discover and reveal underground targets. The long range frequency generated target is then confirmed by our electronic under-ground imaging equipment. The imaged target can narrow the underground exploration search area and time needed to search with pinpoint accuracy by telling the volume of non-ferrous metal, the depth and surrounding factors. The depth and composition of targets can be discerned at the same time. Should pinpoint accuracy be needed to tell the depth, we have an electronic “pin pointer” for even greater accuracy in determining depths of the targets.

Underground Exploration is the last frontier on our planet. Every day a new underground discovery is made, sometimes in the backyard and many times in the vast uninhabited lands that surrounds us. Underground Discovery will assist you in finding and recovering family buried treasure, mining ore veins, underground utilities, long lost troves, unmarked graves, outlaw booty, undocumented buried cache or just forgotten deposits. If your target is underground, our methods and techniques of underground exploration will reveal the target up to 200 feet deep.

Buried Treasure

Wednesday, September 09th, 2009 8:10pm

Buried Treasure has been the root of visions of grandeur from the beginning of time. Most people would think of pirates and chests of gold but the reality is that buried treasure in various forms exists within a few minutes of us all the time. Within the short history of this nation, it was discovered that the safest place to store one’s valuables was in the ground within sight of one’s residence. Farmers buried their valuables with their work in mind, fields, barns, fence rows and outbuildings. Eighty five percent of the population of the United States were farmers prior to the Great Depression. City dwellers’ buried treasure was placed in the floor of the basement or hidden in the walls of the house.

Since conflict was first called war, soldiers going to war would bury their money so the enemy would not profit should they fall in battle. Even these small caches of buried treasure are worth thousands of dollars today as most of the money buried prior to World War I and earlier than the Romans has great numismatic value.

The Spanish hid great troves of coins and buried treasure in anticipation of Indian revolts here in early American history. The Jesuit priests continued to bury church artifacts to protect the church valuables from being stolen by the Indians that were upset at the Spaniards. Wagon trains would bury all money, gold, silver and treasures in a communal hole before the Indian would attack. Western robbers would bury stolen heavy coins for a faster get away. Many robbers were caught, killed or plagued with the changing landscape after 20 years in prison. Buried treasure comes in many forms over a vast period of time, but waits patiently just out of sight for the light of day.

There are thousands of reasons that mother earth was trusted with buried treasure; “don’t trust banks, don’t trust the government, don’t trust the kids, everyone is out to steal my valuables, etc., don’t trust the partner, don’t trust the spouse.” One of the greatest reasons for buried treasure is the pure convenience of it, no matter where you are at, there you are, with plenty of terra firma to hide buried treasure. When the government made it illegal to own gold, Gold Act of 1933 ($10,000 fine for violators) you must realize that this nation had used gold and silver coins as money since the conception of the nation. Paper money was a just a guarantee that you could turn the paper “note” into the bank for REAL cash coins. This one covert act caused millions of coins to be buried on farms, ranches, backyards, basements and fields or hidden in a secret niche with the great hope that someday the owners could retrieve their coins and once again have real cash on hand. Little did the hiders realize that it would take over forty years before the ability to own gold would be returned to the US citizens. Meanwhile owners died without revealing even to their children the secret buried treasure, some lost memory of where they buried it, some moved away with intentions of coming back but never returned, some went to war and were lost, some divorced and went their separate ways and the buried treasure is still there, lost forever by the original owners. During this forty years the children were taught that paper was money and gold and silver coins belonged in a museum. The value of gold and silver was made to seem meaningless as no one could have it so why look for buried treasure?

Within fifteen minutes or less of where you are sitting now, you will find buried treasure hidden away by someone that you may never know and their story never told… If you suspect that you have the location of a buried treasure, but need a confirmation before you dig, contact Underground Discovery for imaging and recovery.

Buried Treasure Private Bank

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011 12:31pm

Buried Treasure, Private Bank, cache, safe or just a plain hiding place. All treasure was buried with the full intent of the owner to return and dig it up. Most treasure was dug up by the person that buried it…

Buried treasure creates a taylored private bank anywhere, allowing the digger to open the vault and add or subtract from the cache. There are hundreds of “used” buried treasure private banks within a five mile radius of most people in populated areas today. Before brick and mortar banks were on every corner, one used the ground banks to temporarily store their valuables safely. The United States Gold Reserve Act, of January 30 1934, caused a moderate increase of buried gold coins to prevent the government from confiscating them. Up until this year, buried treasures were common ongoing events. The Spanish buried their gold and silver coins, bullion and mines from the angry Indians, Indians buried gold to keep the white man from finding it, wagon trains buried their valuables every night to protect against night robbers, bandits buried loot treasure because the weight of gold and silver slowed their escape from the pursuing posse, Civil War buried treasure resulted when either side was about to possess the area, the miser hid his treasure from everyone by digging a hole, the spouse made moonlight deposits to hide specie from his mate, partners divided to bury their share in privacy, but in the end all but some of the Indians returned to reclaim the buried treasure.

Fate intervened many times with the return of the owner for his buried treasure. Death, physical impairment, memory, distance, time, the law (Gold Act), natural elements and natural disaster prevented the recovery of enough buried treasure to keep hidden treasure hunters, dreamers and hopes of discovery alive for every succeeding generation. Thousands of “lost” hidden treasure caches are waiting to be found. Most signs, markers and the “X” on the map to these buried treasures were only in the digger’s mind and not on trees, rocks or maps.

Our proprietary electronic technology allows Underground Discovery to locate treasure, buried treasure or hidden treasure with our long range detector, from over a mile away, then pinpoint the exact spot and depth of the buried treasure. Our services are available nationwide as well as worldwide. We do not sell equipment. If you have a buried treasure, family treasure, KGC treasure, Spanish treasure, outlaw treasure or just a treasure that you would like to verify and recover, save thousands of dollars by finding the exact location before digging.

Family Treasure

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010 1:58am

Finding Family treasure began with a phone call on a Wednesday afternoon. As all stories start, this one began with the history…

Uncle Jack was 62 years old when it became legal to own gold again in the US. The Gold Reserve Act of January 30, 1934 confiscated every citizen’s gold coin, bullion or Gold Certificates! FDR’s Executive Order 6102 made it a $10,000 fine and/or up 10 years in prison to hoard or keep your own gold. 1975 in our family was the “year of Uncle Jack”, he bought gold again legally. Forty two years the family listened while Uncle Jack bitched, whined and complained that if he had it to do over again, the government wouldn’t be able to take away what it couldn’t find! (It didn’t help Uncle Jack’s disposition that as soon as all the gold was confiscated that the value went from the $20 an ounce redemption price to $35 an ounce worldwide!) After all, gold coin and Gold Certificates were as common as federal notes are now. For 200 years Americans used gold and silver as currency, and then it was “illegal” to use and own, “strange”, Uncle Jack would chant, “that out of all the countries, only in the US was it illegal to possess gold…”

Uncle Jack never married, worked as a machinist in Connecticut until he retired, then moved back to his inherited farm in Virginia. He refused to call the “greenies” (federal reserve notes) cash. The caller on the other end other the phone continued, “I was only 18 when Uncle Jack arrived home from the “gold buying place” with a heavy canvas bag that didn’t seem to be very full. Uncle Jack announced proudly, “Today I started buying my gold back! There is $10,000 in gold coin there Johnny!” He opened the sack and I peered in and in all my wisdom announced, “I never thought $10,000 was so small!”

Well, I wasn’t there every time that Uncle Jack came back from the “gold buying place” but the family can document three arrivals to the farm of $10,000 in gold each time. Over the next 12 years I would stop in to Uncle Jack’s to find him slowly rocking on the front porch with the same greeting each time I arrived, “buy gold Johnny, it will be worth more than all the “greenies” you could ever hope to gather!”

Dad and I found Uncle Jack in his rocking chair. Silenced forever, never revealed the location of the buried gold coins, and only Dad and I knew that Uncle Jack had bought gold and buried it somewhere on the sixty acres. Dad bought a metal detector (most only reach a maximum of 15” in depth) and would comb the likely spots on the weekend. Dad’s been gone since 95 and now I am thinking of selling the property and I hate to think someone would find Uncle Jack’s fortune after I sell it. “DO you think Underground Discovery’s underground imaging equipment can find Uncle Jack’s gold coins?”

“Yes, Underground Discovery’s equipment can locate buried treasure of this size!”

Fog was layered above the field to about the height of the orchard canopy. Our plan was to use two imaging machines to cover more area quicker. The property had been assessed and the logical places were first to be imaged, no luck. The day ended with no underground cache located. The following morning, the sun was shining warm and bright from the beginning. The grass in the orchard had been mowed, but the dew had already soaked our boots when we had the hit! As we crowded to see the computer screen, we could tell it was a ferrous (steel) object buried four feet deep. John was ecstatic, “Lets dig now!” We cautioned him that this may only be one stash with several left to find. As the shovels finally descended wide enough to bend over, to a depth of four feet , the shovel grated making the unmistakable sound of metal against the metal canister, an ammo box. Shaking the box like a Christmas package, John exclaimed, “I hear metal inside”. The box weighed about 15 pounds and contained 235 one ounce gold coins, about $10,000 worth at $42 an ounce in 1975. Today’s price, a cool quarter of a million! John announced on the spot that he wasn’t selling the farm.

Uncle Jack has to be smiling, knowing he outfoxed Uncle Sam but ultimately helped his namesake nephew save the family farm! Oh by the way John would like to have Underground Discovery back to find the other two hidden golden caches.

Note:
With the addition of our long range detector we would have located all the targets on this ranch the first day.

If you have a family treasure that has eluded the family’s discovery, call Underground Discovery before you sell the property, or when you finally want to see what buried treasure has been hidden all these years…

Caves for Spelunking

Friday, November 20th, 2009 12:08pm

Caves for spelunking are numerous in most states. Virgin caves are a rare find. The mission was to get an underground image of a newly discovered cave and possibly find its outlet leading to a hopeful undiscovered cave.

As the commercial flight approached Salt Lake City, the golden brown hillsides reflected a glow of warmth and gave no hint of the impending winter storm that was fast approaching. The next morning, and a short helicopter ride to within 500 yards of the cave entrance, found our team scaling, slipping and scampering to the gaping cave entrance. Our normal modus operandi is to have a field of work that allows level, unimpeded travel (on foot) for 3-7 seconds in North to South and East to West directions, with no bushes, trees, rocks or high grass. What a shock as we had peered out of the helicopter, the cave was on the face of a 40 degree slope, peppered with outcropping boulders and scrub trees. “Mission impossible comes to mind”!

A team of ground clearers removed rocks, bent over grass clumps, removed dead bushes to prepare a “landing strip” for the three foot wide antenna that will hover just above the ground to collect the data for the underground cave walls and exits images.

All day long the team cleared imaging paths behind the team’s biolocator. This specialized field of biolocation allows the imaging team to save time and concentrate on imaging just the location of interest, not areas that do not include caves, exits or tunnels. Call 480 463 7464

Treasure Stories

Friday, January 23rd, 2009 7:30pm

Treasure stories like this one started in the 1870’s when Sam Bass, an abominable Texas outlaw, robbed many stagecoaches near deadwood, in the Dakota territory. Bass and his partner, Joel Collins robbed the Union Pacific Railroad in Big Springs, Nebraska. In the treasure story, they confiscated a payroll of 3,000 consisting of newly-minted 1877 $20 gold coins. The 1,250 $20 gold coins were found, but the remainder of coins and jewelry was not found after they died. Rumor has it that Bass’s portion was 30 miles from Denton, Texas in Cove Hollow. Still a treasure story mystery today.

Another treasure story begins in 1894, when the First National Bank located in Bowie, Texas, was robbed by four men. 500 $20 gold pieces and $18,000 in cash was taken. Being founded in 1890, the bank issued $10 and $20 notes, any of those may have been taken during the robbery. The coins were buried before crossing the Red River, so as not to slow the journey with the weight of the coins. An end was put to the treasure story when the men were captured and hanged, but one confided in lawman Palmore as to where the gold was buried, which was under a cottonwood tree where the Red and Wichita Rivers meet.

If you believe you have the best information on a long lost treasure but would like to “see” if it really is underground before you dig, Call Underground Discovery, 480 463 7464 or email us below.

Confederate Treasure

Saturday, May 21st, 2011 6:30pm

Confederate Treasure buried during the Civil War was just one side of the conflict. Similar treasures were buried in the North as the Southern Soldiers advanced on defenseless homes and farms.

“It’s somewhere in the orchard. She told me, “It’s right out there, next to one of those trees.”

This was a typical example of the beginning of a Confederate Treasure tale.

Standing on the veranda of the old home place I gazed out over the very mature, perfectly symmetrically planted peach orchard of 375 acres. The thought crossed my mind of how did this elderly lady’s great-grandfather mark the family Confederate treasure location, he supposedly buried years ago. Perhaps he didn’t, perhaps he just knew it as a particular tree or combination of trees. That information would have been long lost when he passed away, as he apparently was not able to tell anyone before he died of “the fever.”

I asked her if any of the trees had been cut down. She replied, “Well, yes the adjacent farm which is now my cousin’s place, was also part of the original home place, and half of it was orchard until 1940, when his trees were stumped and the land is now pasture.” This added another wrinkle in locating the gold and silver coin Confederate treasure cache she claimed had been buried during the civil war ravaged period of Sherman’s infamous march through Georgia.

In 1864 Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman of the Union Army began a campaign after leaving the captured city of Atlanta. The devastation his troops wreaked in Georgia ended with the capture of Savannah. The damage this march inflicted was widespread, from industry and infrastructure, to civilian property. This lady’s family owned farm had been directly in its path thus creating a fear of pillaging and a need to hide Confederate Treasure.

Sherman’s armies did not rely on traditional supply lines. Instead they “lived off the land,” after their 20 days of rations were consumed. Foraging units seized food and livestock from local farms for the Army while they destroyed the railroads and infrastructure of the state. The twisted and broken railroad rails that the troops heated over fires and wrapped around tree trunks and left behind became known as “Sherman’s neckties.” (One of these bent rails was actually leaning against the barn, partially imbedded in the ground, where someone in years past had skidded it to a halt.)

Neighbors and friends had warned one another of the impending destruction. Hastily, families assembled what treasure they had, such as gold or silver coin, and buried it in a clandestine location to keep the Confederate treasure from being taken by the marauders. Much was lost during those perilous days, but some was spirited away and buried.

She asked me if I thought we could find the cache her family had known of by stories handed down from generation to generation. She also told me with trembling lips she may have to put the place up for sale, as she could no longer keep it up. This was the last opportunity to look for the Confederate Treasure she felt was out there and rightfully hers.

“Let’s see,” I said, and powered up the long range detector.
An immediate hit was indicated, a direction that was directly out into the midst of the orchard. Perfectly in line with an old stone bridge that could easily be seen from the porch.

Wandering through the orchard of perfectly spaced trees I could not see anything that would indicate that a treasure was buried nearby. Finally the long range gold detector indicated I was at the spot. Uphill there was a rock ledge that protruded through the ground pointing directly at the tree trunk where I stood. The gold locator also indicated the gold was no longer there!

I suggested the owner’s treasure lay in the story of the history of this civil war Confederate treasure. She confided that she had the story already written but was waiting on the ending. Her creative mind immediately took a character from the annals of the family history, had him secretly dig the confederate treasure and move to Brazil to start a cattle ranch.

Every story doesn’t end in a recovery of treasure but we can tell if the treasure is still there to be found. Give us a call 480 463 7464

Gold Robbery Lies

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011 8:09pm

Gold Robbery Lies are more prevalent than gold robbery truths. The frontier bank is held up, sometimes by design, others by chance, the banker has had his hand in the till, and now sees a way to come out squeaky clean. The banker claims $25,000.00 was stolen, when in actuality the robbers only took $1800.00. Even if the robber denies that he took that much, no one believes him and a new treasure story is born and more gold robbery lies are spun into the annals of history. The press has ALSO been guilty of perpetuating, exaggerating and downright fabricating amounts stolen in holdups under the guise of reporting (selling) the copy!

“$23,200 IN GOLD COIN BURIED BETWEEN THE OLSON PLACE AND THE BUTTERFIELD STAGE STOP! Only $1800 recovered. Robber hung and never reveals the location of the missing buried loot.” Truth or Gold Robbery Lies?

The forest road was crooked and rough. We bounced over the ruts and washes traversing the century and a half old ranch. One gold robbery happened on the old Star stage line that operated between Prescott and Santa Fe. The story that was published estimated the value of the un-circulated gold coins in 1879, to be $225,000.00. (Today’s value would make it well over $16 million.) The ranch owner chatted endlessly, divulging mountains of facts and treasure lore about this huge stash of gold coins. The bank decided that the gold coin shipment was to be a secret. A common freight wagon would transport the coins with no outriders for protection. Freight wagons were common on this route and everyday freight had never been robbed on this road. A stage station (a place to change horses, use the outhouse facilities, sometimes eat and always water) was located near a spring that was ¾ of a mile from the ranch headquarters. There were four robbers waiting for the shipment at the stage station when the freight wagon arrived. The robbers shot the guy “riding shotgun” and killed him, but the driver fell from the wagon seat, scrambled to the woods and escaped without being wounded. The driver returned in 50 minutes from the ranch house where the sheriff just happened to be lunching with a posse out on a different mission…

The law men raced into the stage station property where they discovered that the robbers were still there! The posse closed in and trapped the bandits in the station. A gun battle ensued and raged well into the dark without the first bandit giving up. The Sheriff started the stage station on fire, the bandits came running out shooting, and all 4 were killed at the station. The next morning the ashes were sifted, the grounds searched but the three boxes of gold coins were nowhere to be found. Claims were made that the 3 wooden boxes were never found. We do know that magic was not applied to make them disappear. What we have here is classic Gold Robbery Lies! There were just too many convenient happenings.

• No outriders, not even trailing the wagon.
• Sherriff only a stone’s throw from the robbery with a posse, having lunch.
• No one manning the stage station?
• Driver escapes without being shot.
• Why did the robbers stay at the stage station for almost an hour after the driver escaped?
• Why wasn’t the gold coins or melted gold found where the station had burned?
• The driver never saw the 3 boxes of gold. Tarp was already tied down when he arrived.

Underground Discovery started at the springs to set up the long range gold detector. (One of the theories was that the outlaws threw the coins in the springs.) The machine eliminated the springs immediately. The long range gold detector has the ability to find the current hidden gold coins or where they were buried and then dug up. The buried cache was located less than a half mile from where the station was located, right at the tree line of a lake. The caliche rock soil made for tough, slow digging when you are in a hurry. It was evident from 20 feet away that the ancient cache had been dug and the hole never recovered.

Now the facts to refute the Gold Robbery Lies:

• $225,000.00 of $20 gold one ounce coins equals a 74 foot long single roll of coins.
• $225,000.00 equals 11,250 coins.
• 11,250 coins weigh 771.43 pounds
• The coins are 1.33 inches in diameter . Each box would have to hold 24.66 feet of single roll coins.
• There were 3 wooden boxes to hold the gold coins each holding 257 pounds or 3750 coins.
• Each box would have to measure at least 8” by 6” by 12” long with and outside dimension of 9”X7”X13”.
• 24 rolls 12” long, 6 rolls to the layer, 4 layers of coins.
• The hole needed to be a minimum of 13” long by 9” wide by 21” deep to house the three boxes. Yes a smaller hole could be dug if you poured the coins in the hole loose without the boxes.

However, the empty hole was carefully scraped to the bottom. It was barely the width of a shovel and only 24” deep. An impossible size hole to house the 11,250 coins that needed to be extracted quickly at the time of retrieval. Second our equipment estimated that the size of the cache of gold coins had only been the size of a quart jar which would have fit the hole we were staring at perfectly. There is no way that there ever were 11,250 gold coins buried at this site. The machines don’t lie. We can tell how much, how deep, and sometimes how long it’s been there.

Let’s review the Gold Robbery Lies and the Gold Robbery facts:

• Obviously someone leaked out the information of the gold shipment,
• It appears that 6 men were involved in the robbery,
• The Ring leader (banker?), the freight wagon driver, and 4 fall guys.
• The quart size loot robbed by the 4 fall guys was payoff for the wagon driver.
• The rest of the loot was never put in the wagon…

Now one would have to do a little research to find out about insurance jobs back then, because with the information that Underground Discoveries was able to detect, the size of the shipment was defiantly not the size that was reported to the authorities. You see, not only can we discover where the loot is buried, we can tell how much is there as well. We found where the loot had been buried.

Our personal opinion is, whoever the inside guy was, knew where they were going to bury the gold, because the 3 to 4 hour job to dig the hard caliche rock hole had to have been dug prior to the robbery not in the 50 minute interval between the heist and the sheriff arrival. We suggest the small cache was for the wagon driver who had to have known in advance that the sheriff would be close by. The 4 fall guys had to have known the driver was part of the scheme, because 4 men can certainly shoot 2 un-expecting men on a stopped wagon. Or perhaps some treasure hunter happened across the small gold coin cache by accident. You make the call!

More Gold Robbery Lies survive the test of time because we as readers want there to be more there in the elusive treasure cache…

Y2K Treasure

Saturday, March 19th, 2011 5:19pm

Y2K Treasure could have been cash, gold, silver, food, gas or water. The survivalist said Y2K treasure could be guns, ammunition or nuclear wardrobes. Aunt Pearl recounted that ALL the prognosticators on TBN said the social security checks would stop, Banks would lock their doors, water would become scarce and food would only be available for those who had bought Y2K canned and boxed rations!

We are very well aware that the Y2K scare sold a lot of generators and stuff that normally never sold well. Aunt Pearl bought it all, bottled water by the truck load, powdered food, canned goods, five gallon pails of rice and beans and gold… 30 thousand dollars of small bullion. Aunt Pearl was beginning to suffer from dementia and seldom remembered from one week to another where she had hid valuables. She had triple locks on every door, called the police each time she forgot, accusing neighbors and out of state relatives of breaking into her house while she was in town. Aunt Pearl lived alone with two dogs, three cats, a turtle and a parakeet. Aunt Pearl was fearless, she had a shotgun, two pistols and a snake charmer. Crank callers always got the same welcome from Aunt Pearl, cooing, she would beckon, “Come on over Sugar, and I’ll fill your ____ full of double aught buckshot!”

She called one day, and being her favorite nephew, (for the day), I conceded to come find her miniature gold bullion bars. She had a habit of stuffing 100 dollar bills in old dresses, coats or shoes so I knew the bullion could be anywhere on the five acres. Two hundred and fifty miles later, the grandma figure Aunt Pearl was hugging, laughing, loving to see me, it was her family welcome. A hundred questions later of is it under the bed, is it, is it, is it, I knew she was having a bad day and only the latest Long Range Gold Detector would bail her out.

As I unloaded the equipment, Aunt Pearl complained that she thought I was coming up to help her look for her gold, “You know I don’t have any faith in ‘lectronics!” At 89, Aunt Pearl was the self appointed “sagess” matriarch. She knew everything and she knew best. She always bragged, “The Lord only enriches those He can trust with riches!” I knew I had to produce or the wrath of Aunt Pearl would be revealed and directed in full power at me…
Within 10 minutes I had a signal that pointed directly under an ornamental plum tree that had obviously been planted in the last 14 months. “Aunt, did you dig the hole for this plum tree?”

“No Sugar, I had Eli from the church dig it and then I went to “Blooms O Plenty” and picked it up.”

“Do you remember placing the gold bars in the bottom of the hole before you planted the tree?”

“No son I don’t, do you think your cousin Jeff buried it there while I was in town?”

“Could have happened that way Aunt.” I chided, knowing she forgot that she had buried the gold.

We didn’t have to uproot the whole tree. By digging on the close side, I uncovered a canvas bag with all the bullion intact. Aunt Pearl placed the bullion in her safe beside her bed. She called from time to time to ask me again where I put her gold and quickly remembered as I reminded her that she had placed it beside her bed in the safe.

Three years later a vixen niece came to visit Aunt Pearl for a week. All of Aunt’s crystal, silver and valuables were loaded in the niece’s van to be taken to Virginia, I was surprised to find that the niece had coaxed the combination from Aunt Pearl and of course the safe was empty. Aunt Pearl was gone as well, deposited in a nursing home. Each time I saw her she asked again where had she put her gold. I merely replied, “Remember the safe beside your bed?”

“Yes. Oh, Thank you Sugar!”

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps Part 2

Monday, February 01st, 2010 6:19pm

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps is a continued series of the most intricate secret society in the history of the US. Understanding the KGC methodology, codes and signs of treasure maps and treasure locations has been “cracked” by the esteemed Dr. John Melancon. Here Dr. Melancon continues his narrative:

In article 1, we introduced the concept of context of treasure sign for the treasure maps of the knights of the golden circle. The layout of a KGC template would always be after a pattern. I have seen them in diamond and circle combination, in squares, in Star of David designs and these patterns may even me multiples that overlay one another. One such sight I interpreted had multiple stars of David in an overlay, where another used a single Star of David and used each point and each place that the lines intersected to hide either treasure or treasure map information. However, interpretation of a template requires large amounts of field work unless you have additional information. Wandering over large areas of land, doing a GPS reading and then doing the waypoints back at the office will still give limited results unless you did enough research to get at least the majority of the waypoints. Two locations on a thirty six waypoint template will reveal very little information. You must find the starting point, at least three locations, understand all of the template designs, understand a good bit of trigonometry and it will still take you some time. The knights of the golden circle were mathematical in their design, with a few interesting decoys, returns, reversals, and depths but if you do the math, apply all of the signs it is pretty accurate to a science rather that a treasure hunting guessing game.

What other context must we use for a more accurate picture? Consider the hoot owl trees, the carved stones laid out in further patterns, the actual maps that were passed down from sentinel to sentinel, the carved names of these Sons of Liberty, the civil war history, and even the context of the knights of the golden circle purpose and organization. You must get into the thought process of the one that hid the treasure in order to open treasure vault. View Article 3 here.

If you have a location with Spanish and/or KGC signs and symbols that you would like to have interpreted, contact Dr. Melancon with the email contact form or give us a call at 480 463 7464.

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps Part 3

Friday, February 12th, 2010 11:39pm

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps reveal signs that are a combination of different styles of recorded information. As far as the actual handwritten maps, very few treasure hunters have ever even seen an actual Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Map. I have seen, read and decoded several of these KGC treasure maps and find them highly intricate, most unusual and very interesting.

The material that Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps are drawn on varies but most likely is either leather or civil war uniforms (rebel uniforms of course). In one case the map was made from the side of the rebel uniform and included the seam. Surprise, the seam was a symbol on the map although it was in no way highlighted. It had been cleverly designed around the seam as though it were not a part of that map. In truth, it was the direction to the treasure.

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps were hand drawn maps, that may include simple, childlike drawing of mountains, trees, hoot owl trees, trails, figures, or perhaps one of a series of maps may include a coded description of everything that is hidden. When I say childlike, they are simple line drawings, sometimes called stick drawings that are never complex in style. Many times there is a series of maps for a single area, particularly when there is a repository. I have seen these maps written in Spanish, which easily allows for decoys, reversals and even complete information to show it was previously Spanish.) Remember, the KGC used the Spanish treasure sites (hidden caches of the Spanish, that were hid in anticipation of the impending Indian uprising, and were never found when another generation of Spaniards returned years later) and altered them. They also altered the Spanish with secret codes to show what part of the written information was false. These professional treasure hiders sometimes divided the Spanish treasure and re-hid it in multiple locations sometimes left it in place and altered the Spanish signs. Perhaps you have chased a Spanish treasure to a dead end? Perhaps you were hood-winked by the Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps, that either altered signs or relocated the deposit.

If you believe you have found a Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Map or KGC treasure site, it is very helpful in cracking the code to see all the physical signs, symbols, rocks or maps before they are moved, altered or destroyed. TAKE lots of pictures, leave everything as you found it and seek professional help. Dr. Melancon will be happy to share the decoding and suggest ways to circumvent the death traps for safe recovery.
