This search project had the best conditions that are required for a successful treasure hunt:
Precise search locations where artifacts, relics and valuable objects are suspected.
A well-coordinated team that is passionate about the treasure hunt.
Best preparations of the scan fields.
While some volunteers fixed strings, another treasure hunter scanned path after path of the marked area with the treasure detector OKM Evolution. The strings are used to precisely determine the size of the scan field and to keep straight scan paths while walking. This procedure not only simplifies the use of the detector, but also allows to perform the measurement more precisely and quickly.
Ground Scan Analysis
After transferring the scan data to the Windows notebook, the scan images can be analyzed in more detail. The scan data read in by the 3D detection software Visualizer 3D not only show potential finds, but can also help to determine find depths with the help of various optimizations and additional options. The available scan data show finds at depths down to 50 cm. Further finds prove that OKM treasure detectors such as the Evolution NTX can detect objects at even greater depths.
If this treasure hunter team already suspected at the beginning of the search that they would find a coin hoard here? The joy and enthusiasm grew with every excavated coin, until finally the entire bowl was filled with coins.
The hoard of coins should not remain the only find.
Treasure Hunters Follow the Traces of El Dorado
After further ground measurements, the team of treasure hunters finally came across this large gold treasure. The gold statues found show many different characters and scenes: Animals, humans, gods and fantasy figures. The statues and relics are up to 4 cm high, some of them weigh up to 300 g.
Whether the finds are gold objects from the legendary El Dorado or previously hidden treasures of the Incas has not yet been clarified. We leave this assessment to experts.
