Buried treasure, Crock Jars and Gold coins

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

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…

Caves for Spelunking

Friday, November 20th, 2009

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

Y2K Treasure

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

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 #15

Wednesday, August 04th, 2010

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps of the KGC and the on-sight signs include many objects other than animals. If it is an object, consider what the object does. What is the item used for? Is it the item a tool? What does that tool do? This could give you a clue for what they are saying but you must consider the context. Always take a series of photographs of each item and place in the picture an indicator for direction and an indicator for size. That way you can sit next to the fire on a cold winter night and examine the object and understand the direction it points and the size it is. Many times there is much information in the measurements of each part of the object. When I have someone send me a photograph of an item, I first consider if it is horizontal or vertical in nature. If it is horizontal I have them take a 12” ruler and lay it so the ‘0’ end at magnetic north and the ‘12’ at the southern position. This gives me the directional and a way of measuring the different parts of the item off of the length of the ruler. If the item is vertical in nature I have a hole in the ‘0’ end of the ruler, tie a string to the ruler and suspend the ruler so the increments are visible in the photo.

Now examine the item (non-animal) for its use. It if were say a knife, look to see where it is pointing but watch carefully for any reversal signs. The hilt might even divide the treasure and the point show the direction. The lengths may indicate how far to the two treasures. You see, a knife is designed to cut or divide. And although that may not be the use of your knife, it could be. You must read it all within the context.

Spanish signs were usually incorporated into a KGC site. Many times the signs were merged to confuse a Spanish sign interpreter. Dr. John Melancon has had extensive experience and success reading these signs to facilitate a successful “find”. If you need assistance at your location contact Dr. Melancon below or phone, 480 463 7464.

Treasure Hunting

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Treasure Hunting, can be in your Backyard, caves, mines or for loot. First published 9-22-15. www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrwyK_ZzwWc treasure hunting

Underground Discovery has proprietary electronic equipment that can tell where the treasure is located, 10 oz of silver can easily be found a mile away.

Do you Have Signs & Symbols you want deciphered so you can find the treasure? We have an expert that can do an archaeology study or, our Long Range detector deciphers within seconds if the treasure is there at all.

Pinpointing the Location is easy with Underground Discovery equipment. Know the exact depth before digging (within 6 inches.)
Can’t find the original entrance, want to avoid the death traps, want to dig straight down?

While metal detectors average only 15 inches deep, our long range detector easily reaches 300 feet on land or water.

Digging for the Gold. We have saved investors & prospectors thousands of dollars, showing them that there is, or is not treasure where they want to dig, we can tell the difference between raw gold (that has not been mined and gold that has been smelted and reformed into bars, ingots, or coins.

The TREASURE
Cash, Gems, Gold Bars, Silver ingots and coins, if the treasure has been buried or undisturbed for 12 months, we can find it, underground, in the attic or the basement.
Most treasure that has been written about has been found, but here are a few examples of treasure that still exists, hidden away on private property, under the sea or in your backyard.

Have a treasure map? If we can discern from the map, the location within a mile or two, we can tell you if the treasure ever was there, usually from the highway.

We do not sell equipment. Our service is available for $5000 a day plus expenses.
Nondisclosure agreements will be exchanged. Give us a call. Telephone 480 463 7464
