    To get a Treasure Trove permit is like giving up a Kidney,

    O Ya, Everyone talks about this Templar Treasure and a lot of people spend money on the so called Money Pit but the truth is it is next to impossible to get a permit. We told the government of Nova Scotia that we believe we located a Viking ship in the area and what do we have to do to get a permit to check it out. For get it, no permit would be given to us because we were to small and we were not able to complete the job. Unless we had some big company backing us or a Museum there was no way we could do anything. We only wanted to check out the site with metal detectors and high power equipment to see if it was a Viking ship . We did not want to do a dig and we did not want the ship but would like a reward if it was a Viking ship again the answer was NO This site would cost me thousands of dollars to check out and would cost them nothing , so who stands to lose on a deal like this We need info from the dig site to help locate the Templar Treasure.
    Over the years we have located many sites we want to check out and it gets harder to get the OK to dig. We have 12 sites we want to dig at but the land owners want it all in most cases and will not pay a reward. So we keep the info we have until they give in to somekind of reward. Hang in there.

    UPDATE The person in charge of the Department of Heritage and Culture ( Robert Ogilve ) has retired and the new person has agreed to take a look at what we found. We can file for class A permit but we can not remove or dig anything from the site. We can use metal detectors and check out the site . Scott F. Wolter has joined up with us to check out this site as soon as I get a Pass Port.
    Scott is known world wide for his work on the Knights Templar, the Kensingston Runestone and the Oak Island Treasure. If this is a Viking ship from the 1390's it could change history. We will post our findings when we return.

    Goes to show ... sometimes it's just a power-tripping bureaucrat that stands in the way of these types of things.

    Agreed! I could not find any mention of this potentially huge developing story on their website. I find that Finder's stories/posts/website usually end with "hang in there" or "we plan to dig in 2009" etc.... with no conclussion either way. Their website has been active for a couple years, some official documents/correspondence they have posted are dated 2005.... yet there is never any mention of a successful recovery no matter how large or small.

    Is this just the nature of the beast? So many great stories but never any recoveries. I hope they do find a Viking ship. There's no legend or wishy-washy stuff invovled. It's either there or it's not.

    Good luck Finder.

    Nice Finder. I'm reading through them now (and will respect your wishes).

    Thank you for the reply. I was not trying to atttack you, just so we are clear. My comments above are true as far as I could tell. I am excited for you. this would be a big find for sure with Discovery Channel on scene. I love that channel. the international exposure for Canada would be cool. And who doesn't like the @ss kicking Vikings?

    Good luck to you.

    Sa-weeeet! Good news indeed Finder. You'll need a kidney or 2, try to keep them close.

    Seriously, I will watch for news from you (you have my email if you want to share anything that way too) and i wish you the best of luck.

    Re: To get a Treasure Trove permit is like giving up a Kidney,

    Hi Everyone, Well we made it back from Nova Scotia and things went good, we got artifacts from our site in Manhoe Bay and we have sent them back to the Nova Scotia Goverment, Stephen Powell is going to have them check out and get back to us. If the metal objects come out to be 600yrs old then we plan to return soon to finish our adventure.
    I would like to thank everyone in Nova Scotia . This place is Great. If you ever have the time I would recomend a Trip to Manhoe Bay area. We had a GREAT TIME Thank You
    We will post everything as soon as we know.

    Re: To get a Treasure Trove permit is like giving up a Kidney,

    We sent the artifacts to The Heritage Dep. and found out Stephen was out of the office until July 13th. so today he will begin the reasearch to have it checked out. I don't know how long this will take but we will post as soon as we know. I went through some Viking Ship books and we think we found 2 of the artifacts but it will be up to the state to decide if they are the age. Thank You
