Jacques has always had a passion for treasure. Every time he goes on a road trip, he grabs some dirt from every stream or river he crosses and takes it home with him to pan out and search for gold. The mining industry has been in his family for generations. Jacques is the go-to guy for contacting more experts and finding the right piece of equipment for the job. He's the links that hold the chain together.

Chad Granoski

Chad has always had a passion for the unknown. In middle school, he read the Oak Island Mystery and was hooked ever since. He spent some time as a Paranormal/UFO/Cryptid investigator and have worked with a few TV shows. Recently, he switched his focus back to Treasure Hunting, his first passion. Chad has always enjoyed researching the history and clues surrounding these stories. He has now decided to start investigating and solving some of these lost stories and hopefully uncover lost treasures! He read this quote once “The true secret to the unknown is in the looking, not the finding. The journey is what matters!”  and has since based his own journey upon this.
