The prevailing evidence suggests that the fabulous Cobb County, Georgia, gold cache is still buried in the original location. To date, those who were known to have searched for it did not avail themselves of the most up-to-date state-of-the-art metal detection devices. The consensus among researchers is that the cache was not buried deep and that a patient and diligent searcher equipped with a high quality metal detector would stand a great chance at locating this treasure trove of gold coins.
Recall that not from the tree with the M and X blazes is a small tributary of the Chattahoochee River. If one follows the directions of 300 yards northeast of the railroad tracks just beyond the bridge, then another 300 yards north, this would place the searcher in the general vicinity of the tributary, and therefore the cache.
