$10,000 Reward for Interview with Fenn’s Treasure Finder

KNOXVILLE, TN, June 15, 2020 /PRNewswire — Kellyco Metal Detectors is offering a $10,000 reward for the first exclusive video interview with the treasure hunter(s) that located Fenn’s Treasure. 

For a decade, the location and contents of Fenn’s Treasure remained a buried mystery. Then, on June 6, 2020, an unidentified treasure hunter found the bounty. It was confirmed by Forrest Fenn, the original burier, that they had discovered the famed cache. And although the treasure hunter(s) are now rich off coins, jewelry and gold nuggets, Kellyco Metal Detectors wants to make them $10,000 richer and inspire other treasure hunters in the process! 

Kellyco Metal Detectors president Jeremy Floyd said the mystery of the treasure hunter’s identity is as alluring as the treasure itself. “This is an incredible story and we’re anxious to hear about it. This may be the one time Kellyco’s motto of ‘Treasure awaits’ doesn’t apply, because this treasure has already been found.”

“This is a once-in-a-generation find,” said Floyd. “On the one hand, I’m surprised that it was located only ten years after it was hidden. And on the other hand, I am impressed with the skill and bravery it took for the treasure finder to uncover such a monumental cache.” 

Details of the Reward

Kellyco will accept an anonymized video of the treasure hunter(s) recorded by someone else with proof from Forrest Fenn of the story’s authenticity, and the reward will go to the person who recorded the interview. 

Kellyco will also meet with the treasure finder(s) themselves. The interview will be recorded and anonymized. Kellyco’s President, Jeremy Floyd, will meet the individual(s) at the location of their choice and will not disclose any information to the public regarding their identity or whereabouts of the treasure hunter(s). 

This offer for $10,000 is good for six months after the date of Fenn’s Treasure discovery. This offer expires Tuesday, December 8, 2020. The story must remain exclusive to Kellyco Metal Detectors for a full calendar year, 365 days, after publish date. Offer is subject to change at any time.

To Fenn’s Treasure Finder:

We want to hear your story and how you came across Fenn’s Treasure. We’re curious to know which clues in the book were helpful, which tools you used to find the treasure, how many attempts it took to locate the treasure, and what you learned along the way.

To Future Treasure Finders:

To locate a bounty of this size and type, we believe Fenn’s Treasure was located with one of the following detectors:
