“Treasure hunters digging on a remote bluff overlooking Florida’s Suwannee River claim they have found tantalizing evidence that pirate gold might be at the bottom of a muddy, 13-foot (4-meter) hole.
“We’ve found mahogany wood samples, flecks of gold, and gold all over the diver’s dive suit [after diving in the hole],” said Tommy Todd, a St. Petersburg landscaper who owns the property being excavated.”
