Got a hit for Japanese lower part of map around red circle and below it. Some type of hot mineral the middle map, probably not even placer gold. Don't have Japanese hit identified yet as to target type, check rocks first.

Hm... Well, its sad that our results aren't matching up. It would have been a nice little boost in confidence/motivation to keep digging. Fortunately the hole is already at about 11 ft so it won't be a big deal to proceed and investigate the anomaly at 15 ft. Thanks to all for taking a good look at it. We have a contract for the area around the old structure also. If anything ever comes of it I will let you know.

I looked again. Still seeing a small spot of AU. The blue box is ferrous metal, maybe a box? I don’t see any usual gemstones or other non ferrous metals. Good luck.

I hope the container at least contains a map or something else of value. We shall see. Thanks again!

I wouldn't overlook any structure with a concrete floor. I heard a story about a Japanese person. He helped make the stone cache markers and returned years later to recover a cache of gold bars. The Japanese man also identified a house, he told the owners their property might be the cache location indicated by his markers.

Don't think it was me that marked the circle.

You hear a lot about placer gold in the Philippines. But what can be said about platinum or copper minerals?

Interesting story. That structure has an all dirt floor and was originally smaller. The Japanese probably put it up there but for what reason is unknown. An American treasure hunter recovered several small shallow caches on the lot bordering that one back in the 90s. Maybe there are some leftovers. We'll see.

I'm not sure about those as naturally occurring minerals here. Refined platinum bars and large ingots are a real possibility.

Never occurred to me, to check for platinum treasure in the Philippines. Dirt floor in structure, maybe once had a cement floor?

I dowsed a photo once for a treasure hunter in the Philippines. He said the owner found in the hole, a Japanese skeleton holding a sword. The hole in floor was already there, only needed to check hole more and the remaining concrete. Got plenty of hits, never told me what was found.

There is a lot more gold than there is platinum but platinum is definitely here. The large wooden beams are sitting on stones to keep them off the ground. I don't think it ever had a cement floor but maybe I'm wrong.

What is in the bottom of your GE map. Right now, seems to be the stronger signal. A lot of something Japanese in the signal.

It's all farm land over there. They are growing sugarcane. That land is also part of the same family's property.

Can you guys give me your biggest gold, platinum or gemstone hits in this area? As in highest quantities and concentrations. Also, if you can isolate shallow objects that'd be great.

On that size map, small deposits won’t show for me. Saw no gems, gold circles are AU and blue is possible Platinum. those are areas I would check. Look for markers and use your devices for confirmation. Disregard yellow lines.

Can we zoom in a bit on the area of your gold and platinum hit? That's actually the area I've been operating. See if you can find any smaller gold objects. This area is totally exclusive. All the people that were living there before are gone now. If I'm not mistaken, in the area of your platinum hit there is a large perfectly rectangular stone. There's no way its natural.

Ok, this is what I detect. The thicker arrow is strongest signal. cant tell if anything is shallow or giveaways. Blue I detect platinum.
I know you have gadgets, they should be able to nail depths.

One more question. Is all the property you're searching, covered on the map or is there property on the map with a different owner?
