Buried Treasure In Nevada
Six Places To Search

Much of the buried treasure in Nevada have to do with the lost gold and silver mines from the 1800‘s. There are opportunities to find these abandoned mines, I know individuals who have located some of them in other parts of the country. However, you need more than just a story about a lost mine. You need to put in many hours of visibly searching the areas where the mines were said to be located.

What makes searching for the old mines more difficult is the fact that over the years, many of the mines entrances have caved in. If you are going to attempt to search for a lost mine, a good tool to have with you is a metal detector.

Using a detector around areas where mines are said to be located is a good why of knowing whether or not a mine is in the area. If there is, the detector will pick up silver and gold traces.

Are you thinking of purchasing a metal detector? Do not spend more that $450. A good price range of between $350-$450 is all you need. The more expensive detectors are for the more advanced hobbyists.

It is important that you are very careful when searching for lost mine treasure. Much of the areas are remote and dangerous. Hiking into some of these places can be rewarding if your prepared.
