Types of Soil the Japanese Used to Cover Buried Treasures


The most common method on how the Japanese Imperial Army had hidden most of their treasure were to bury them deep down the ground. Through their numbers, digging several feet can only take them around 15 to 30 minutes period.

In some cases, the Japanese Army had along with them slaves who does the digging for them. The most inexcusable act that they had committed was that, they killed every slaves who were witnesses to the location of their hidden treasure. According to some sources, once their slaves dug the hole they were shot from behind and thrown into the hole.

The remaining task of covering the hole were left to the Japanese soldiers.

Here are the following common methods on how the Japanese soldiers covered their buried treasures:

1. Human Sacrifice

- As already mentioned above, they do practiced human sacrifice. So after killing their slaves, they do recite some kind of ceremonial prayer. According to our spiritual medium, the spirit of the sacrificed individual will remain trapped into this physical world of ours with the duty to guard the treasure. Unless, somebody will come and recite the proper ceremonial to release the spirit.

Thus, it is actually normal to uncover human skeletal bones.

2. Clams and Sea Shells

- Human skeletal bones, clams and sea shells are often found deep down the hole. In most cases, when you had encountered them it means that you are already near the deposit.

3. Bottles

- Old antique bottles can also be found. It's actually easy to distinguish old bottles from the new. New bottles do have clearer and smoother surfaces than the old bottles. And, the common colors of old bottles are usually dark-brown and green.

4. Ammunition

- You will notice a lot of ammunitions around mixed up on the soil of the ground.

5. Pebbles or River Rocks

- What makes pebbles and river rocks different from the stones in the mainland or mountains is their surface. Pebbles and river rocks tends to have smoother surfaces. Other than that, they are a lot tougher to break.

6. Different Colors of Soils

- The Japanese soldiers had to make an effort to look around nearby places for soils with different variety of colors. In my own experience as a treasure hunter in the Philippines, I had encountered the following different colors of soils:

a. Brown
b. Black
c. Grey
d. Red or Orange
e. White
f. Yellow
g. Violet
h. Pink

Depending on the availability of different colors of soils that they found, they are going to fill the hole up with those soil in alternate layers. Assuming that the original color of the soil that they had dug was brown and they had found soils with colors black, pink, yellow and grey. They will fill the hole first with let says black soil as the bottom most layer. Next is the pink soil then followed by the yellow and grey. The top or surface layer is always the original color of the soil of the hiding spot which on this case is brown.

Take note, the Japanese soldiers sometimes had contaminated the soil with chemical poison. The effect of being exposed into the contaminated soil especially through direct skin contact can result in experiencing itchiness. This symptoms is then followed by dizziness then later paralysis and death.

Ground Soil

Moreover, those types or different colors of soils as well as those other materials can be randomly arranged in different orders. But most importantly, you knew that they are signs in which it confirms that you are digging the correct hiding spot.
