Robot and unmanned helicopter drafted in to find £160million loot stashed on 'treasure island' in 1820
Shaun Whitehead is heading up an archaeological expedition to try to uncover treasure buried on the Pacific island of Cocos worth an estimated £160million
Captain William Thompson

Is said to have buried it on the Cocos Island
The treasure had originally been accrued by the Spaniards in Lima now the capital of Peru but in the face of a revolt the citys viceroy José de la Serna asked Captain Thompson to ship the valuable goods to the Spanish colony of Mexico
But Captain Thompson had other thoughts



After leaving the port of Callao on the Mary Dear, Thompson killed the viceroy's six men and took a new course to the Cocos island.

The treasure is said to contain



113 gold religious statues, 200 chests of jewels, 273 swords with jewelled hilts, 1,000 diamonds, solid gold crowns, 150 chalices and hundreds of gold and silver bars.

A string of famous explorers have led failed attempts to find the hidden stash on the uninhabited island including



Depression era U.S. President Franklin Roosevolt, swashbuckling Australian actor Errol Flynn and racing driver Sir Malcolm Campbell all tried and failed to locate the treasure in the 20th century.

The quest will begin in November will they find the loot could it already of been found or
Maybe Captain Thompson lied and it is not buried on the Cocos

Shine and twinkle in someones lucky torchlight

The treasure weighed so much that they don't think that it would have been carried very far inland.

So they are thinking it may have been placed in a cave near the shore.

They are also thinking that the entrance to the cave may have been covered by an avalanche.

Interesting post. Ever since I first saw The Goonies, I've always wished I could come across some treasure like that.
