Treasure hunter says half-a-billion dollars worth of gold to discover in the oceans

Authorities found about 200 tons of gold and gems in a sunken boat deep off the waters of Columbia — and the local treasure-hunting community is in a buzz.Sister station WPBF interviewed Treasure Hunter Bill Black on the artifacts he found. The question on everyone’s mind: How did this treasure even get here?Black said that the authorities found a sunken ship from 1708 that sunk during a battle in deep waters and was never touched. Black said the pictures taken of the treasure are the best pictures taken to date.”There’s not much overburden covering it up. It’s just laying there at 2,000 feet of depth,” said Black. Black said that he works on the Treasure Coast and believes that half a billion dollars worth of treasure is still out there.”The story, I believe, is that there’s more silver and gold treasure on the bottom of the sea than above it,” Black said. Black even gives advice to aspiring treasure hunters as to where to look for hidden treasure.”The best beach would honestly be Miami. If you’d rather get a metal detector, then do some research,” Black said.The best time to go looking for buried treasure is after a storm because the storm will clear up a lot of the renourishing sand. It will uncover the treasure that is usually hidden several feet underneath the sand. Black said that he runs some treasure boats out of Sebastian, Florida, and has hired two captains, one of which is the grandson of Mel Fisher and the other captain was a part of the Atocha Salvage.
