Consider the financial aspect if you want to become a treasure hunter. Maybe you have a business you could sell, a wealthy relative or friend who can back you or maybe you can take out a bank loan. In any event, you will need finances to secure the equipment and the means of travel when you set out on a treasure-hunting trip.

Team up with someone who can aide you in your quest to become a successful treasure hunter. Few people ever achieve anything great all by themselves. If you don't have the necessary detective skills to seek out valuables, find someone who does. It will improve your chances of success if you or someone you team up with can analyze information.

Go online to search for opportunities to join an expedition. Depending on the type of treasure you want to find, there are expeditions going out all over the world that will provide a chance to gain experience. The more experiences you have with educational, exploring types of trips, the better.

Start small if the steps to becoming a treasure hunter seem too complicated. Buy a metal detector for yourself. Begin where you are by walking around the area where you live, using your metal detector to hunt for treasures. Many people have found valuable jewelry, gold and other treasures with nothing more than a metal detector.
