I have encountered another interesting comment which I need to answer in this blog post because I think this needs to be known by everyone.

Our fellow treasure hunter in this community had asked me about the sharing of their project where they have an interested financier to continue their operation.

Before I get to answer this concern, I would like everyone to know that my response to this particular concern is not a rule that all treasure hunter need to follow. It’s because my response is solely based on the rules that we implement in our own group.

According to our fellow treasure hunter, he and some of his companions had started their excavations some time ago. But due to their lack of funds, they were unable to continue their operation.

But recently, an interested person came and offered to finance their project. So … Read the rest

Depths of buried pots is actually a very common question around the treasure hunting community. It is a very common type of question that I came across several times. So I decided to make a discussion about it.

So how much depth do we exactly need to dig before we can uncover the buried pot containing the Yamashita treasure deposit?

Before we answer this question, there are actually two different types of pots used or made by the Japanese Imperial Army soldiers.

First Type of Pot – Antique Pots

The first type of pot they used was the actual pot with artistic and cultural designs.

Old Antique Pot

They may have used pots that came from Japan which they brought here in the Philippines used for storing some of their food supplies. Or, they may have used pots that they confiscated from the other countries which they occupied … Read the rest

Some of you here are from the region of Zambales and one of their common questions is that they would like to know if there are buried Yamashita treasures in their place. My answer to this question is “Yes”. There are Yamashita treasure deposits in this region where there are already many treasure hunters including foreigners searching for them.

Back in 2018, a group of treasure hunters were arrested in Capones Island because they were conducting an unauthorized treasure hunting activity.

According to the website Philippine News Agency, this group of treasure hunters were conducting their operation for more than a month. And what surprises me here is that they managed to dig just a depth of only 16ft. My crew can actually dig a depth of 30ft or even much deeper in just a month. If the ground is too loose then … Read the rest

There are some rumors about the creature called “carabao” claiming that they can locate buried Yamashita treasure.

Do these creatures really have the ability to locate buried treasure deposits under the ground? Can they accurately pin-point the exact digging spot? These are the two major questions that we are going to discuss in this post.

Carabao is a common type of animal found in most Asian countries which includes the Philippines. And they are commonly used to help farmers in tilling their land farm. So in the Philippines, they considered the carabaos as their National Animal.


However, the introduction of new farming technologies to farmers for more efficient and increase of product pushed the poor creatures to their near extinction. Since the owners of the carabaos are now using machines for farming, they no longer have any use for these creatures. Thus, they end up … Read the rest

We have a fellow treasure hunter in this community who has sent me a video of a person conducting a dowsing operation inside the room of his own house. What he would like to know is my own opinion about the person performing the dowsing operation if it is reliable or not.

Unfortunately, I cannot post the video here on my blog but you can watch it on my YouTube Channel (Treasure Hunt Club).

Based on my own observation, I can say that the person operating his L-Rod dowsing tool seems to know how to use it.

He has stable or steady hands when handling the tool.

However, the main issue that I noticed here is the location which is inside the house.

You have to know that it is not easy to conduct dowsing operations inside the house.

This is due … Read the rest

In the previous post, we discussed the “chambers” which are often large spacious rooms under the ground built by the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army) soldiers to hide their treasure loot.

But the question here by many is, “How can we correctly break the seal of the chamber?”

If you have not yet read our previous discussion about the chambers, then I suggest that you should read it first before this post. It’s because we covered in the previous post everything you need to know about chambers. But if you have already read the post then you may continue reading.

The most common problem by many treasure hunters when it comes to chambers are the “seal” or the obstacles that block the entrance. These blockages are actually very hard to break or cleared-off to gain entry inside the chamber.

The main reason why it is pretty … Read the rest

In this post, we are going to discuss a very large sized old rock with a crack in its middle portion which splits it into two. This interesting huge rock has been discovered by our fellow treasure hunter in this community and he has the following questions:

“Is this huge rock a legit treasure marker left behind by the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army) soldiers?”

“If it is a legit rock treasure marker then what does it mean?”

The image below is the actual huge rock that has been discovered by our fellow treasure hunter.

We can notice that he excavated this portion of the huge rock which gives us an insight that almost half of its body is buried under the ground. In case you do not know it yet, the Japanese Imperial soldiers purposely used large old rocks in our surroundings as treasure markers. … Read the rest

As a treasure hunter, we do have our own terminologies that only experienced treasure hunters can understand. These terminologies are actually one of the things that separates the amateurs from those who already have a lot of experience in the field of treasure hunting.

Unfortunately, these terminologies can also cause misunderstanding especially when the amateurs interact with the experienced treasure hunters. Thus, I urged all treasure hunters who want to share their knowledge and opinion to others by using general terms that can be understood by everyone.

Treasure Hunter Terminologies for Treasure Deposits

There’s going to be a very long list of words if we are going to cover each one of them. So in this post, I decided to discuss only the commonly used terms that treasure hunters use when referring to a certain particular treasure deposits.

  1. Poop or feces

Some treasure hunters use … Read the rest

Recently, I came to notice that many of you guys have trouble trying to identify rock markers that you found on your site if they are legit or not. So I need to give one important insight on how you can identify them.

When it comes to rocks as markers used by the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army), I can say that they can be categorized into two. One, are the rock markers that you can find on the surface. And two, are the rock markers that are buried under the ground.

You need to know that when you manage to decode the markers on the surface and pinpointed the exact digging spot, this does not mean that when you dig it down straight, it will lead you into the treasure deposit spot. In most cases, you may uncover buried markers indicating a change of … Read the rest

You might be surprised that the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army) had also utilized tree logs as markers to their hidden Yamashita treasures. And my interpretation to them is quite simple where all you have to do is to dig and follow the log down to its opposite end.

Based on my own experiences as a treasure hunter, the JIA will bury the tree log down the ground. Although, you will only encounter this buried tree log provided that you have successfully decoded the signs on the surface of your site leading you to the said spot.

The JIA often used tree logs that are long and straight. And to make sure that they will last for a long period of time, they put some kind of oil or chemical on them as treatment so that it will take time for them to get rotten.

Thus, … Read the rest
