Buried Treasure In Colorado 
Here Are Six Areas To Search

Buried treasure in Colorado is hidden in ghost towns, caves, mines, and on personal property.

It exists as outlaw treasure, and from Indian raids on the early settlers. Listed below are a few of the many treasures that have been cached in Colorado. This information should be researched through other means as well. Never rely on one piece of information about a treasure story you are researching. Use multiple research tools.

Use the Internet as a research tool. Also check with the historical societies of the areas you will be searching in. Follow any leads you get. Be persistent. Ask questions, read everything about the treasure story you are researching.

 Follow up with more research, and ask more questions. Sometimes, the most difficult part of searching for a treasure is in the research. However, if you do that right, you have a better chance of finding what you are searching for.

If you do not own a metal detector it’s a good idea to have one. It makes searching for buried treasure in Colorado much easier.

There is no need to buy an expensive model. If it’s your first metal detector you may become overwhelmed with the learning curve of that model, and become disenchanted and quit before you begin to enjoy the hobby. Buy an inexpensive model, between $300- $450, study the owners manual, and practice using the detector. If you do this, you will locate many interesting finds. And who knows, maybe even a buried treasure.

Are you interested in purchasing a metal detector or accessories?
