Buried Treasure in South Carolina
Five Places To Search

Buried treasure in South Carolina is scattered throughout the State. You can locate these treasures. Many individuals like yourself have uncovered hidden treasures of different sizes throughout the U.S. Some of these individuals were professional treasure hunters, yet some were novices as well. But before you begin your search, there are a few things you need to do. They are the things that make the difference in whether or not you can actually locate a treasure. They are the things that all professional treasure hunters do.

The first thing you should do is research the treasures I have listed in this article. Take the information I have given to you and research further. Use the Internet, historical societies, and the archives. “Knowledge is power.” Especially when you are searching for a lost treasure. Professional treasure hunters never attempt to search out a treasure until they have enough information. Sometimes the research takes more time than the actual search.

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.
