I remember  when i was in IRAQ I WENT TO BABELON with a friend in a school trip and I found a sign that indicates something inside this rock when I flapped the rock I found another slap garnet or marble  large tile, then I found a small room after digging of about one foot , the small underground room was filled with old  mud plates and mud cylinders. I kept the secret with me for 30 years until I told my teacher about it, I dont know what happened as my teacher was killed and the Iraqi Shia government later stole it and not to be found !

Majority of hidden treasures particularly those that consists of large deposits usually have clues left behind by the individuals responsible in hiding them. THs (treasure hunters) refer to these clues as treasure codes and signs. They are actually engraved markings of strange symbols that only few experienced and clever THs can decipher or interpret.

Encountering any possible codes and signs around your prospective site actually increases the possibility of a hidden or buried treasure deposit on that particular area. They are most likely engraved on surfaces of nearby objects such as rocks, trees and concretes. Thus, the first and most important step of Things in treasure hunting  is to “explore the site” for these kinds of clues.

If it happens that you discovered a certain strange marked symbol on the surface of an object, it is basically important that you examine it carefully. Try to distinguish the marking if it is either a “man-made sign” or “natural-made sign”.

Two Types of Engraved Signs

1. Man-Made Signs

Man-made engraved symbols are authentic signs that could aid THs in finding the location of the buried treasure. These kinds of markings can be distinguished by examining them if they were etched using manual tools. Although, this could be a problem to all TH beginners because acquiring this skill may take years of actual experiences.

2. Natural-Made Signs

Nature itself can actually carve almost anything which include natural-made signs. But unlike man-made signs, they have no intended purpose for THs but to cause “confusion”.

Treasure Codes and Signs

Interpreting Treasure Codes and Signs

Interpreting a certain treasure sign “correctly” is a vital part of Thing particularly in locating the hidden object which makes metal detectors or dowsing tools  no longer necessary. It also minimizes digging efforts reducing all the hard work involve. Another importance of being able to interpret signs is to avoid dangerous traps.

So how do THs interpret codes and signs?

Most THs are able to interpret treasure signs through the use of “Thing Code References”. Although, only few of these codes are made available from the public such as on the internet. Some claimed complete copies exists but they are most likely for sale and there is “no guarantee” if they are really authentic or not.

In order to explain how THs exactly interpret a certain particular sign, let us have an example.

Let us assume that you found an “X sign” marked on the surface of a large rock. The first step that most experienced  treasure hunting expert- thx- do is to distinguish the sign if it is either man-made or just natural. Considering that it is a man-made sign, the second step is to “identify” its possible meanings.

In general, an X symbol could mean target, object, spot, stop and danger. The first three meanings are good because they indicate the presence of the hidden treasure on the rock. “Stop and Danger” are the two meanings of an X sign that warns about dangerous traps or some possible risks involve, like explosives’, snakes etc.

The third step is to “search for any possible additional signs nearby” because it is actually common to encounter “more than just one signs”. Each of these signs are interconnected with one another revealing more clear details and meanings about the location of the hidden treasure. So on this example, let us say that you found another sign which is an “arrow sign” engraved on the body of an old large tree. It is about 6 meters away from the rock and it is directly pointing to the X sign.

The presence of the arrow sign is actually giving great “importance” to the location of the rock. So in connection to the X sign, this importance has something to do with the target, object and hidden spot of the treasure. Thus, excavation on that spot is highly advisable. But if the tree died and on the ground you should also look and search the area for signs that once was standing. 

What if there are no other signs around that can be found?

If it happens that no other signs can be found nearby then there are 4 possible reasons about it:

1. Natural Sign

As already mentioned above, these are signs that are carved by nature which have nothing to do about any hidden treasures. And unfortunately, an engraved X is just one among the common natural signs that often confuse THX especially beginners. Other common natural signs include foot prints, arrows and holes.

2. Dud or Fake Sign

Some people who hid their treasures were tricky enough to setup dud or fake signs. Even experienced THs could fall into this trick wasting most of their precious time, efforts and financial budget. That’s what the Egyptian used to do to confuse thief’s and treasure hunters by putting many different sign  that leads away from the target and some time to a danger where you could be killed by snake, a hall in the ground, quick sand etc..

3. Danger Sign

The last two meanings of an X sign is Stop and Danger which literally both means, “it is better not to attempt or avoid working on that particular spot”. This is usually the case if no other signs nearby can support the importance of any Danger Signs which includes the X.

Treasures Codes and Signs are Not International

Missing treasures around the world were hidden by different group of people on different period of time. This is the main reason why they made use of their own “unique set of treasure codes and signs”. Thus, if your interest is to search for the hidden Pirate treasures then you should only focus your research in studying Pirate treasure codes.

Moreover, I am making myself completely available to anyone who needs help in interpreting the signs that they discovered. Just give me the complete details about it and perhaps include some actual photos then send them either to

Greeting from Calgary, Alberta - Canada. My name is Saad Ramzi Al-Hashimi . I am the founder and the director of the Paranormal zone- Haunting Dimensions. That deals with an investigation, debunking, and healing/cleansing. Having had many unexplainable experiences from a young age at a possible "haunted" house where plenty of things seemed to happen that I couldn’t explain, Since that time and I am looking and searching for an answer. After continuing to have many experiences that I just cannot explain, I have since become a firm believer that GHOSTS do exist. I continued for a short while as a member of a few other paranormal groups until I was very fortunate to become involved with a local fast growing organization where I felt very comfortable to start my own paranormal investigation. My best experience has been Indio California, Okotoks Alberta, Baghdad city , and many other places in Greece and North Canada. (yes I do believe spirits can hurt you so you have to be careful not to provoke or challenge a spirit ). I won’t tell you the whole story now but you are more than welcome to ask me on a ghost hunt. I am now looking forward to meeting many more people, all looking for that ‘experience’ that could possibly convince them that there is something more to life than we first thought. So please feel free to email me drsteveramsey@gmail.com I have been involved in several paranormal groups over the years. Paranormal Adventures is different and exciting in ways I couldn’t possibly get before. When people ask if I believe in ghosts, I say I am a skeptical believer. I have had many encounters with spirit forms and believe what I have seen to be real and unexplainable. I always look for a normal mundane reason why at the same time. My area of expertise in the field of science. I have Ph.D. in Public Health from the USA, Master degree in Medical Ultrasound and BSc Degree in Diagnostic Imaging from Charles Sturt University Australia, BSc in Physics, and Radiology diploma from Iraq, Pharmacy diploma. Radiography diploma from London Ontario, Diploma in Natural Health from Quebec, Canada. Radiation physics from Australia, I studied the infra and ultrasound in the animal kingdom.P resented more than 20 lectures in Iraq, Greece, Germany, South Korea, Japan, Canada and I am the peer reviewer for the radiographer journal in UK, Netherlands, and South Africa. Earned the 3rd award for excellence in ultrasound - Canada 2005. I am also armature archaeologist, painter, calligrapher, and used to run acting theater play in Iraq- Baghdad, wrote, directed and acted in more than 27 plays. So debunking come naturally in my science and technology back round, and not like other debunking people around you who use Google for their search and call them self-debunkers, It doesn't work that way. In the near future, I will run live internet ghost hunts with night vision cameras giving users at home the chance to watch the spooky footage on, in my nights out. I look forward to seeing you all soon on one of our many events! I loved reading ghost stories and sitting on my own in the dark watching horror films. However. I Can decode dreams, and I see spirits in my dreams. I like to look at things from a scientific point of view and try to rule out all rational possibilities before concluding that events are paranormal. However, I do try to keep an open mind on all investigations. I started taking part in investigations since 1986; my first investigation usually any house, apartment that I move in or my friend's places. For many of my true paranormal stories you can read them at www.linkedin.com I will try to copy and move all my articles here in this site in near future. Thank you for reading and God Bless you all.
