Buried Treasure in Oregon
Six Areas To Search

Buried treasure in Oregon consists of outlaw caches, gold and silver mines, personal buried treasures, and lost treasures in ghost towns.

However, before you decide to start looking for these treasures there are two things you need to do. The first is to do more research about the treasure, and the second is to get a metal detector if you do not already own one.

Research is important to locating any hidden treasure. Although it is true that treasures have been found by pure luck, those are rare incident indeed. No professional treasure hunter would ever attempt searching for lost treasure without doing as much research as possible.

 The stories in this article have just basic information about a few lost treasures in Oregon, but you need to do more research. Check with the local historical societies for more information, and search the Internet. These two areas are a good start for your research.

If you do not own a metal detector, you should purchase one, and do not spend a lot of money. You can buy a good detector new, for between $350 and $450. You do not need a high end detector that has more controls than a Boeing 747. The more expensive models are for the more advanced hobbyist. Buy an inexpensive detector, read the owners manual, and practice using it. You will find just enough goodies with the less expensive models as many of the individuals who use the higher end detectors.
