Hi I'm interested in deep caches. My friend in Nicarauga has invited me to hunt on a farm with some history of some buried treasure. New to this any advise? strohone@yahoo.com

Welcome to Thunting Smiley

Research, research, research, hunt, hunt dig.

If this an old farmstead then there is probably stuff buried all over the place. Thrash was commonly just thrown in the closest ravine. Old bottles &c. If the folks who lived there hid treasure it might be in a spot where they could hide it unseen and keep an eye on it. Basement, under barn, side of well, root cellar, inside a wall. If someone hid stuff there before occupation and farming look for likely hiding places. Caves, in stream bed, tree hole, under rock on side of hill.

Browse around the web site and read about how other recoveries were made. Books have been written on how and why people hide the stuff they do and how to find it. Use your brain first before you go out and buy expensive hardware and just look blindly. Searching a hundred acres could take a lifetime.

Hello Ron Dog,

welcome to our website! Hope you will enjoy it! Have you any detailed hints on buried treasure at those grounds yet? What sort of detector do you plan on using? A so called pulse inductor machine with a large coil would maybe be the best choice for quickly searching large areas for deep buried caches.

Regards,

Christian

How about a little more background regarding the how-and-why regarding the story of the original caching? I'm quite familiar with Nicaragua, and the country in general is dirt poor... The typical middle-class-American-farmer-type cache (i.e., a Mason jar of silver coins buried along a fenceline, etc.) probably wouldn't be applicable in Nicaragua, in my opinion. (FYI, I pay each of my three Nicaraguan farm employees the equivalent of between USD$85 and USD$100 per month for their labor. So, I'm guessing that you're searching for something other than the typical "Nicaraguan farmer" cache?!?

(Cornelius-- Thanks for your good words. I've been in contact with Ed K. and I'm now working to get more information about the opportunity here, before wasting anyone's time. I am climbing the learning curve as quickly as possible, thanks to you and others who are much more knowledgeable than I am right now...  E)

Hi Bob
             What depth do you get with a 12.1/2 inch coil ?   sounds like you do a lot of digging trash and all,  looks  like you dont want to lose any dollars.

  yes i dig a  lot.... 55 years old and retired....  lots of free time.    about 24to34 inches on a small jar of silver coins.  my ads7 always has given great results .  that is the all metal mode with no discrimnination.  when coin hunting  ...a silver u.s. quarter has hit at 10 inches or better with a solid signal.  however with our dirt/clay mixture , even 100+ year coins usually are 6" or less deep.  i have never seen a cache more than an arms lenght deep.
