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 dollars per troy ounce, which puts the estimated value of the cache over 100,000 Dollars, however, if the cache is confirmed to have historical significance, the estimated amount would likely result in an even higher value.
