Any treasure clues in new tourism video? Fenn says no

Forrest Fenn

SANTA FE (AP) – An antiquities dealer says a state tourism video in which he appears should not be interpreted as a clue to treasure he hid in the mountains north of Santa Fe.

Author Forrest Fenn told the Santa Fe New Mexican on Saturday that nothing he says in the New Mexico Department of Tourism’s promotional video is a clue.

In the two-and-a-half minute YouTube video, the 84-year-old author talks about the treasure over sweeping landscape snapshots. Fenn says the accompanying images also are not hints.

The video received more than 57,000 views as of Sunday afternoon.

Fenn sparked the treasure hunt in 2011 when he released his book, “The Thrill of the Chase.” The book features clues that could lead readers to the $2 million treasure he hid in 2010. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
