The search for treasures, proclaimed by its creators like the Gunless, without traps and ghosts, has come to Vancouver.
Gold Hunt launches three treasure hunt in three Canadian cities: Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.
In every hunt, treasure hunters will have a chance to find a $ 100,000 treasure buried in a secret place.
"It's almost like experiencing Goonies in real life," said spokesman Chris Cromwell. – Or as an Indiana Jones-style adventure.
The company sells cards and a series of five clues to guide you to where X stands for.
The cards, which are sold separately for $ 25 and a $ 45 bundle, will be placed on those who signed up on June 1 at 12:01 AM.
Cromwell told CTV News Vancouver that the project has been under development in the past three months, with a group of friends and private investors meeting to fund it.
"We have all been looking for treasures ever since we were children, we grew up and we managed to make real treasure hunting," he said.
What about the pirates or those who want to steal the treasure without a map?
"That would be very unlikely," says Cromwell.
Burned chest will contain proof of purchase that gives the search engine a $ 100,000 search engine and will contain several gold and silver coins, but not the full amount.
Vancouver and Alberta can be just the beginning of the hunt, says Cromwell.
The company strives to extend the idea nationwide, ultimately distributing gold and silver coins worth $ 1 million over the next three years.
"Obviously, we have to start with these three cities and just see what the climate looks like. Are we going to be culturally accepted?" He said.
To participate, you must be a Canadian citizen and be an adult.
