After a lengthy hunt, Vancouver’s search for treasure has come to an end.
In July, Gold Hunt launched three additional treasure hunts across Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton.

In each hunt, treasure seekers were given the chance to win $100,000 worth of treasure, buried in a secret location.
The chests hidden in both Calgary and Edmonton were found in August but Vancouver’s hunt went unsolved for months.
Finally, on October 16, Ronald Troy Linsay-Dickson solved the puzzle and found Vancouver’s treasure.
He was presented with a chest filled with silver and gold coins valued at $100,000 on October 18.
Linsay-Dickson heard about GoldHunt on the radio and spent every spare moment researching and trying to decipher clues.
It’s now official!
At 6:48 pm PST the Vancouver treasure was found by Ronald Troy Linsay-Dickson!
Media & interviews will be coming out shortly.

“I am pretty excited!” Troy said in a statement. “I have been motivated since the beginning but I never thought we would actually end up winning. Immediate plans include a mini-family vacation, so my wife and kids are really excited.”
In June, Burnaby resident Marko Cerda solved the puzzle and found Gold Hunt Vancouver’s first hidden treasure.
