Minelab CTX 3030 unearths major treasure in Mexico

March 2014 - Guerrero, Mexico: A large silver cache, which is possibly dated from the early 19th century Spanish trade, was unearthed at nearly 6 feet (1.8m) below the surface in southern Mexico using a Minelab CTX 3030 metal detector.  

The finder reported to Minelab “I have used other metal detectors in the past and they did not work.  Only the Minelab CTX 3030 was able to pick up the signal and without it, I would have never found this cache.” 

The current market value of silver is approximately $21 USD per troy ounce, which puts the estimated value of the cache over $100,000 USD; however, if the cache is confirmed to have historical significance, the estimated amount would likely result in an even higher value.

Features of the CTX 3030, such as the advanced Target Trace discrimination allows users to easily find more treasure, even amongst junk littered areas and in all ground conditions. Minelab’s exclusive integrated GPS allows users to  navigate to their locations, record their finds and then transfer their detecting information onto Google Maps using the XChange 2 PC application.
