Coldest’s Lost Treasure Xll

"Death lies before us, as we sail to the Fountain of Youth"


The 2023 Coldest’s Lost Treasure Davy Jones' Heart was found at Rice Creek Regional Park in Shoreview by Mike Nowak and his teammates, Ben Fischer and Tony Webber. Davy Jones' Heart was covered up by a small amount of sand inside a heart-shaped sand dune. They found it on clue 9 of 12, and breaking the record for fastest find in Coldest's Lost Treasure history! They were registered hunters and collected a Pirates Booty worth over $400!

      I will be releasing a Alternate Path Clue along with clue 6. The way it works is, this Alternate Path Clue will not tell you anything about where the Treasure Medallion is located, instead it will lead you to another clue I have hidden on PUBLIC LAND in Ramsey County. This "Critical Clue", will contain essential information on where the Treasure Medallion is located. There will be only 1 copy of the Critical Clue so finders keepers if anyone finds it. The finder is not required to inform anyone on the find even me the clue writer, so hunt for it at your own risk. Will you stay on the path of the treasure, or will you gamble and use your valuable time tracking down the Critical Clue? Rules for the “Critical Clue” are exactly the same as the rules for Coldest’s Lost Treasure listed above.




     A scrambled version of the clue will be released at 4pm each day, 1 hour before the unscrambled clues are normally released!
