Ground scanner eXp 4000 localized treasure chest with coin treasure in Mexico

on February 11, 2013

Mexico is well known for its hidden treasures. Besides the famous ruins of Tenochtitla, an ancient Aztec city, or Chichen-Itza, a historic Mayan city, there are a lot of gold and silver treasures buried deep under the Mexican ground. The search for the lost treasures was a big adventure for one of our customers too, which was worth the trouble. The treasure hunter detected an ancient treasure chest with valuable contents by using the eXp 4000 ground scanner and 3D metal detector. A highlight for every treasure hunter!

The treasure chest was mostly filled with silver coins, whereas some of the coins are still an authorized medium of circulation.

Many thiefs or pirates were hoarding treasures and very often they buried it deep into the ground to protect it against other thiefs. Many of those treasures are still lying in the ground waiting to be discovered.

A treasure hunter from Mexico succeeded to find such a treasure. He was using the eXp 4000 ground scanner and detected an ancient treasure chest filled with coins and other valuable artifacts. The treasure chest has been discovered in a depth of about 1.5 meters.
