The Red River Treasure consists of approximately two million dollars in gold bullion. It was buried on the shore of the Red River near Coushatta.

Do Not Break The Law

It's important to understand the laws that protect artifacts. An artifact is any object, below the ground that is 100 years old or older. If your going to dig on State, or Federal lands, be sure to request a permit from the local area office you'll be metal detecting in. But be aware that very few permits are given to the novice.

When you are on private property, all you need is permission from the property owner.

People have been arrested for either knowingly or unknowingly breaking the federal Antiquities Act. 

If you break the law, you could end up in jail.

Buried treasure in Louisiana may be located in ghost towns.
