It is buried! Right from the horses mounth

RE: It is buried! Right from the horses mounth
I think he just didn't catch that he had said that he buried it.
If he had realized it at the time he would have given his old line about "I never said it was buried".
It seems like a pretty easy thing to say while talking about treasure, buried treasure, pretty common.

Yeah, ands the interviewer seemed to lead him into that by asking about it being buried. Who knows anymore.

By what Fenn says in the lure Q and A one would think the chest is buried.

I've said many times if your sure of an area the best way to eliminate the area is with a metal detector.

If he misspoke he should say so, not deny it.

I've made the same slip more than once. In any event, I do believe you have to crack the puzzle down to the level of several feet. I have used a metal detector. I don't know if it is needed or not. He did say at the CW event in 2013 that a metal detector would help you if you were right at the spot. At about 33:10 he says with no ambiguity that a metal detector will help you if you are in exactly the right spot:

This statement elicited a good bit of laughter from the audience but the "if you are in exactly the right spot" is a throw away. I think the laughter was because people felt that "if they were at exactly the right spot" why would they need a detector?
If it is buried or "leaved" or whatever, you might well want a detector. If you get down to the level of a few dozen feet and it is somehow hidden there, a metal detector is going to be your fastest way to search a few hundred square feet.

Given this clip, a wise and thorough searcher will use a metal detector at the target area if prior searches there come up empty.

Yeah, I've personal had a lot of luck finding old relics while using a metal detector in the Rockies, but that was also because I knew the general area to search.

If your trying to search a large area, dangerous terrain, or a place that is difficult to get a metal detector to it would not be practical.

I hope the "old relics" weren't older than 100 years. Then it would be illegal to remove unless on private property with the owners permission. Anything over 100 years falls under the antiquity act. That includes old tin cans, bullet casings, bullets, turds, nails... whatever. Ya gotta love our laws that have been created by elected/appointed/employed government imbeciles.

Sorry didn't know how old all the stuff was my carbon dating machine was broken...
But since you put it that way my uneducated guess would be 99 years old.
