    If you're only talking about a 10x20' area (200ft^2) then why not start by gridding up the area and probing with a sharpened 1/2" steel rod with a T-handle welded on? Any welding shop could make this for about $40.

    That's also a small enough area that you could just dig it up and keep running your detector over each layer.

    Why would I hire anyone to do what I can do myself?

    True, a small excavator can be rented fairly cheaply and you could dig the entire area to depth in a day and then break out the detector if nothing was found.

    There are occasions when people just cannot do everything by themselfe. Somethimes, they luck the proper equipment, ofently they miss proper knowledge and experience and in rare occasions - and this might be a realy dangerous one - they don't want to.

    Is that 200 square feet, or 200 foot squared? There is a substantial difference! Still, if the ground isn't landscaped or valuable in it's present state, I do the backhoe or bull dozer thing to remove all doubt as to whether there is treasure there or not....long as I wasn't paying for it. Those deep buried treasure fables always make me skeptical.

    I am in this type of "bussiness" for over 20 yeares, and have stories and fables for two big fat books, maybe more. About 5% of them payed me to prusue them. Three of them so fare, uncovered the expected target.

    Ok - I think thatís what I needed to hear. Thatíll be a tough call, because Iím not at all confident that it is there. But thatís a judgment call for me. Thanks to all of the responses.

    You can take this as rather valuble exercise. Do the research, try to find out where the "treasutre" originates from (and if it ever existed), how was obtained, how many people had the knowledge of it etc. Use common sence and ask yourselfe what would you do if you ware in those shoes. Bare in mind the time distance impact the preception even with whitneses not motivated to avoid the truth. Make a list with pros and cons and if the pros outwaight the cons, get someone with proper equipment and experience.

    Truthfully, this is one of the easiest hunts you could ever do yourself.

    You stated you know approximately where it may be and second, it's buried. Once the ground is dug and something reburied, as any outhouse bottle digger will tell you, the ground remains notably softer there then in the surrounding area for over 100 years. All you need is a T handle probe, they even sell them premade for hunting holes. Grid off the area and probe it. If you make your own T handle probe, you can even do it for almost free.

    Resident De-Bunker. I'm blunt because I don't have time to indulge your fantasies. Treasure is found down here on Earth, not on Google Earth.

    How many found "targets" were 3 feet deep or deeper?

    Look up "resistivity scans" on Google. Very simple, and it works. For a 3'depth, you want the probes about 6' apart. If the ground is damp, you could probably do it with a 12v battery, and a cheap multimeter.

    I am a professional geophysicist who has done treasure hunting consulting in the USA and overseas. I have significant experience in mapping large areas to detect potential treasures, land mines, UXO, and IEDs. I have no interest in your treasure as long as I get paid my fee on the front end. My fees are based on my daily rates, travel costs, and equipment costs. Look at my LinkedIn profile for some data examples. Let me no if you would like to discuss this further. I own GPR, metal detectors, magnetometers, electrical conductivity profilers, and high accuracy GNSS receivers for positioning the data.

Given that a typical personal detector wonít locate anything that deep, can anyone advise me of the type of professional (in the Atlanta area) - or even a specific person or company - that I could pay to help me locate something that deep? We are a little concerned about the risk in an outsider learning where it is, but Iím not sure how to avoid that. Can anyone help? Thank you in advance.
