Search methods.Once someone has determined where one might keep their stuff, the next step will be to directly search for it. One has to examine any possible search methods to develop strategies to keep things hidden away.Searches may simply use their eyes to look for disturbed earth or other indications or resort to some specialty tools. Any search could use any of these methods so it is important that considerations are made for all of them.Metal detectors.Metal detectors operate on the basic principle of electromagnetic induction. A quick search on the web will yield some good overview articles on the subject and put one in good stead on what they face.Most detectors can distinguish between ferrous and non-ferrous materials, so it’s important that a mix of both types are used, or at least that one uses similar metals. Ferrous metals for ferrous treasure vice-versa for non-ferrous.If most of the treasure items are made of metal, there are really only two ways of avoiding this search method. That would be placing these items out of reach or having sufficient extraneous metal items in the area to render this method useless.Since it is difficult to know the detection range of this search method, by default the is only one method to keep items safe from prying induction.It would be best to borrow the concept of defense in depth here – instead of having one size and one type of extraneous material; it would be preferable to have different sizes and types of these materials.The first type would be small metallic objects that can be spread around the area as a way of masking the true treasure. Small so it is nearly impossible for a potential searcher to sufficiently extract them from the search area, but large enough to be picked up by the detector. While some detectors can filter out junk signals from individual pieces, a fair number of pieces will at least serve to collectively confuse the issue. This is also one of the easiest things to implement – all that is required are metallic bits and they just need to be thrown or scattered about the area that is to be masked.These pieces could just be small metallic objects that are cheap and plentiful such as small bit of hardware like nuts and bolts, brass, bottle caps, and small bits of wire.The next type are medium to large sized pieces that will throw off the search – pieces of junk, old cans of various metallic composition, etc. While these objects may be large enough to be extracted, they will still bog down the search and protect the treasure.The final type would be ‘Simulated’ treasure – items big enough to arouse interest by both metal and ground penetrating radar searches.The likelyhood is that treasure will be hidden in certain types of containers – long boxes or pipes could be simulated by similar long boxes or pipes of the same size, shape, and material.These simulates need to be filled with metallic objects to look and act like the real thing.
How to Hide ‘Treasure’ just in case…….Everyone has at least some metallic items they would like to hide away some place for safekeeping. Some are just round precious metal objects, others are hand held items and still others are long pieces.Some will say that the time to hide away these items is really the time to bring them out. And while there is a bit of truth to that, it is still wise to have back up items if the need should arise.IntroductionThe best method to determine how to hide something is to take the viewpoint of those that would be looking for “Treasure.” Someone looking to find what has been hidden away would most likely look at each one’s personal situation.You and the search for your treasure.What type of property do you have?Do you have a lot of property or do you live in the city? [Note: The ownership of your property is a matter of public record]What type of dwelling do you have? Does it have hide-a-way places like basements or crawlspaces?Do you have relatives or friends nearby that could hide things for you?Do you own any raw land or rent storage space?These are all questions that someone looking for your treasure would ask at the beginning of their search to figure out how many options you have to stash things away. Obviously the more options you have the better off you will be. Fewer options location-wise can make it easier for them by narrowing down their search.Search methods.Once someone has determined where one might keep their stuff, the next step will be to directly search for it.

when it is rime to bury them, it is time to dig them up. When it is time to hide them, it is time to get them out.
