The second thing you need to do is to purchase a metal detector. Do not spend a lot of money. A quality, new, metal detector can be purchased for between $350 - $450. You don’t need a detector with all of the bells and whistles either. Once you learn how to use a less expensive model, then you should move up to the more expensive detectors. Read the owners manual as well as practicing using your metal detector. By doing so you will become proficient at locating items.
Here are five areas to begin your search for buried treasure in South Carolina.
Murrell‘s Inlet, has produced a few small treasures of gold and Spanish silver coins. Possibly they were treasures buried by pirates. The inlet is located halfway between Georgetown and Myrtle Beach. Could there be more buried treasure there?
Fort Randall, located near Myrtle Beach, and just north, is part of a legend that says that there are Civil War treasures buried nearby.
Fort Carey - located on the Wateree River, just south of Camden where the I-20 bridge crosses the river. During construction of the newer bridge, workers found artifacts and coins along the river bank. The coins may have been a part of a buried treasure. Many soldiers would bury their personal belongings for safekeeping.
Along the Santee River is an area where Confederate soldiers stole a Union payroll of $100,000 in gold and silver coins, and then buried the treasure near St. Stephen.
Saluca, located ten miles northeast of Greenwood, is an area that may still hold six tons of silver bullion. The silver was stolen by Union soldiers and then thrown into the Saluda River near Saluca.
