Danger ? Dozens have died digging up roads, riverbeds and mountainsides in a relentless pursuit of Yamashita?s gold. For example, in late 2000, two men were buried alive when a tunnel collapsed near the Mindanao town of General Santos after they had dug as far as 24 feet.Four others suffocated in Lumban, Laguna. And in 1998, three men were killed in Nueva Ecija in Luzon province when a tunnel they had dug caved in.
Con Men ? As many of these recovery projects have ended in failure, a side industry has emerged based on the fever itself. Foreign investors are often enticed into funding the digging of holes known to contain nothing or sold ?treasure maps? of questionable origin -  such as the one to the right →If you are tempted to take up the Yamashita challenge you might want to read this article first, which tells how a 74-year-old man lost his life savings by investing in a Yamashita scheme. Desperate race for vast riches ?

Sharing with the man ? The Philipine government has some pretty strict, and well enforced guidelines for would be treasure hunters operating in their territories. Many expeditions have been escorted by the Philipino Military, who stand guard night and day to make sure that the government gets their fair share of the treasure ? which is listed below:
a) For Treasure Hunting within Public Lands ? Seventy-five percent(75%) to the Government and twenty-five (25%) to the Permit Holder.
b) For Treasure Hunting in Private Lands ? Thirty Percent (30%) to the Government and Seventy Percent (70%) to be shared by the Permit Holder and the landowner.
c) For Shipwreck/Sunken Vessel Recovery ? Fifty percent (50%) to the Government and Fifty percent (50%) to the Permit Holder.?

Yes, there are a few recovered sites in Sabah but much smaller then those in the Philippines.  The latest found was by one of our customers in April, 2010. We sell all types of metal detectors and we are in Sandakan, Sabah too.

Good luck.

First you have to research if he was there at all. History is important to that and your research should start with your own questioning.

Now get thee to your local library!

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Well, Outback copied the sharing info from but he didn't bother to mention about that. You can find lots of good other info there also.
