You will gain access to the knowledge acquired by The Wizard on a 500 year old secret. It is a coded method of carving symbols on land,rocks and trees to create maps that the Spanish used to relocate lost mines and shipwreck locations. It was disguised to conceal the map so only their own people would be able to return and be capable of reading the map. See our Treasure Sites page


Offers will be considered for the complete 1866 collection, or portions thereof. The two photos below show some of the antique porcelain,china,glassware and medical instruments recovered from the shipwreck of the brig Baltic. This ship sank in the great Bahamian hurricane of 1866 while sailing from New York to Galveston Texas. She was to supply food and medicine to the thousands of wounded  soldiers waiting to be released from the military at the end of the Civil War.

Wizard Workshop Interpreting Hand Drawn Symbols

This is a confusing number and one you must pay close attention to. It can be taken as a four or a nine or ten and possibly even eleven so look and measure closely when you find it. It could be any or all of these numbers. It depends on the “reading” direction of the map and that could be counter clockwise, clockwise or mirror/reverse. The bottom of the map could be north, or a crescent “wing” symbol could be adjoining on the map directing a “return” reading from it’s direction to a “new” number. Very confusing number this one, so stay on your toes when you encounter it.

The Wizard will act as a Consultant on your own projects. As time goes by we will be expanding the site content and features, and look forward to creating the ultimate treasure recovery web site. In essence this site will become a treasure in and of itself and you can discover lost Spanish treasure and historic sites and shipwrecks.


Sunken Treasure! Mere mention conjures up visions of elegant clipper ships, towering Spanish galleons and colorful pirates. Visions of gold doubloons, silver bars and jewel-studded medallions. We grew up with romantic nomenclatures describing far away places, “The Spanish Main,” or “The Spice Route.” As children we dreamed at some time or another of being on the trail of buried pirate booty – of rescuing, or being rescued.  More

In the photos below the trick of hiding something in plain sight will be shown to you.

Photo To See Images carved in stone, such as the Inca Indian head (above) and the Bulls head in a reddish color, these pictographs were designed to be seen from great distances and each image had it’s own symbolic meaning.

Once interpreted properly they indicated the proper direction to travel in order to reach the concealed mines or treasure vaults.
