Maybe many of you have encountered skeletons in your dig and just wondering what it is for. Historically, These are the POW's (prisoners of war) either from other countries or a local from the Philippines. I have heard from old folks who is a living witness to a beheading and burying of these prisoners, they use their sharp samurai in decapitating heads easily. Along with the buried treasure, they use the POW's to guard the treasure by killing them on the site and making a sacred prayer like binding their spirit to guard the treasure.

Last year we went for a project to the mountainous region of Ifugao, a place where the tiger of Malaya surrendered to the Allies. Locals told me that the mountain in the photo above was the original place which is the Nabigihan Mountain where Yamashita had surrendered but due to the place is a forest. They have declared that it should be near a community near by, thereby declaring Kiangan as the official place where Yamashita surrendered because it is just a few miles from the mountain. When I have known this, I realized that it was not written from any books but old locals from Ifugao knew the real story.

This was found by my uncle's friend, my uncle took this picture and he described it that it changes color when water is poured and when it is dry. I have seen some treasure hunters also encountered this type of rock that has been recovered on suspected treasure sites. Although I do not know if this has something of value since from my view, it is not a type of diamond or some gem with a high price at stake. Some say that this kind of rock is being used as a decoration in their home and it is really beautiful to see specially if light is near to it. I have also heard that there are buyers of this kind of rock and pay for a cheap price.

For several years, We have been using this kind of metal detector and I give this a positive review. One is because it is very compatible here in our land because of the rich mineral soil that we have and it features that it can cancel or minimize detection of minerals. We had been using this on our journey and it pick ups a lot of metals. There have been a lot of finds but no treasure has been recovered yet but relics of the WW2 have been found.

This rock was found on an old canteen along with 30 old U.S. coins covered in black. The old coins are silver in properties however, the rock is a puzzle. We tried to half it using a steel saw but it would not even scratch it. There three pieces of this rock and the owner had given the two to a Mayor in their place. The Mayor was able to give the owner a piece of land, tractor, and vehicles. The Mayor also is searching this piece of rock but our friend had pawned this one that is worth 50k in PH pesos. We are desperate in breaking this rock but we doubt that maybe this rock would contain nothing inside of value and that my friends 50k will not be refunded just in case.

I came across in a video on youtube which the persons video is showing an uncut diamond on a platinum ball. The ball itself has an engraving of AUSTRALIAN with an image of a kangaroo and at the other side part is SAYAYSA PLATINUM 95.09-78 then at the bottom part is DIAMOND. The owner had showed that they had cut the ball into half revealing an empty space on the inside which the uncut diamond was placed. It was large and the owner showed it's authenticity by placing it near a light bulb and the light was distorted, meaning it is real. But suspicions occur by most of the comments that I have read because of the unclear and low resolution video that the owner had provided. And his style and manner of speaking is very offensive and inappropriate of doing business. There are a lot of diamond buyers that I know of but this one does not know so he post it on youtube, or in my hunch is he is just showing it off to the public. Although this is real or not, he should be very careful in dealing with other people specially that his video got publicized and his face is already shown. I think that the amount of such uncut diamond that has a size like that is worth of millions in either Philippine peso or in dollars.

On my venture to another place, one of our friend contacted us again claiming he found another sign and it is a genuine one and the place has a rich history that the Japanese Army had camp there during the world war 2. I cannot interpret it because of the different writings were etched but I clearly understood the letter "P" stands for TUNNEL.
Other treasure signs were also found in the same place. If someone knew or has encountered this sign you can contact me through my email or just comment below. We have not yet used our metal detector as we have many good projects that were coming on and we scheduled this on summer next year.

One of our contacts had called us and he claims he found some signs, so we decide to take a trip and find out if it is true. And when we had arrived and assessed it, it looks man made but the star with a circle is not and I think children playing here drew that one but near to this sign some had attempted to dig beneath this rock but did not continue. The land is not owned by someone so it is hard to work on this because others may see us and could disrupt our work so we decided to move on to another destination. I have looked up for several codes but this one is not included, and asked our guide what is the history of the place but all he knows is that the place was the battlefield of the Japanese and the Allied Forces. Many died in the that place and they were a witness to many lying bodies around and bloodshed. It was a furious battle even the innocent were killed merciless. But I think that there is a possibility that there is a buried treasure around this sign and it may be pertaining to the feet of this spider sign. It may be a letters in Kanji but I do not know how to read Kanji. Metal detector is important at this kind of unknown sign to explore further if there is a positive buried cache of treasure.
When we were venturing to the high mountains of Nueva Viscaya, a person came to us telling that near his house he found a strange looking rock and it appears to be man made. Then I took some pictures and it really looks like a birds head and man made to me. I have asked the owner of the land the history of the place and only told me that during the war, most of the Japanese had garrisoned and took camp near to this place. He also claimed that a lot of foreigners were coming and asking some directions. And near to this place, some Japanese Nationals used backhoe's and bulldozers to dig but they have not recovered anything. He assumes that they were at the wrong place and thinks that in his place is the right one, considering the signs that were found near his house.

During the storm here in the Philippines in 2011, typhoon Ondoy knocked this down with strong winds. We have traveled to Nueva Viscaya in search for another adventure and treasure trailing. My uncle recommended us to see this place and use our metal detector to detect and assess whether there are possible treasure signs or codes that are visible in the area. I have taken this mango tree photo several months after the typhoon. Most of the branches were blown away and this is what was left. The weird thing about this tree that is keeping me in wonder is that a branch was sticking downward and the place is rich in history that the Imperial Japanese Army had camped near this place. Well my guess is that maybe this was one of the possible treasure sign that the Japanese Army made during the war and hid something. Sometimes they make this as a marker so as I thought but we did not try to detect this place as there are many people who are watching us so I just took some photos of the mango tree.
