LONE GROVE, Okla. (KTEN) — Two Lone Grove boys searching for buried treasure literally struck gold on Monday.

Tripp Hodges and Knox Duvak were with their grandfather on a friend's land near Wilson when they hit pay dirt.

They unearthed gold bars, 19th century silver dollars, and tools.

"I was just in shock, because I was just like 'Papa, Papa, come here!'" Tripp said. "We've never actually found like straight, big, gold — heavy gold — like that before."

"I was excited," Knox added. "I was happy that we found gold."

Their grandfather has told KTEN that he will put the items away for now, and will decide what to do with them in the future.
