A Millionaire Hid THIS Treasure… Here Are The Clues That Will Help You Find It.

At some point, we have all pondered the fantasy of stumbling across an old map or mysterious riddle that would mark the spot of a treasure with riches beyond our wildest dreams.

New Mexico native and millionaire Forrest Fenn has gone out and buried a chest filled with gold, diamonds and rubies and is keeping quiet about where he hid it. The only clues are contained in a book he wrote entitled The Thrill of the Chase.

Roughly 30,000 people have tried to decipher the cryptic clues to find the elusive treasure but to no avail. Apparently, a few people have stood within a couple hundred feet of the riches valued at around $2 Million.

Fenn told KOAT, "I wanted the monetary value to be a consideration for those who are looking for it, but mostly my motive was to get kids off the couch and away from their texting machines and out in the mountains."

The treasure includes American eagles coins, double eagle coins, gold nuggets, Pre-Columbian gold animal artifacts, ancient Chinese carved jade figures, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds.
