Default Tomb Raider CCG: Lara's Treasure

So way back in 1999, the Tomb Raider CCG ran a contest. The basic gist of it was that cards 201-209 of the premier card set would have clues to the location of Lara's treasure, and whoever solved it correctly and got their name drawn would win a prize.

Based on my Google-fu, it doesn't look like anyone ever won. Or if they did, it never got posted about on the Internet.

But now it's your turn to solve it.

I have a pretty good idea of what the solution is (although it slightly fails the criteria of one of the clues). I considered posting all of the clues and everything in this post to keep it all in one place, but I think it's a little more fun if you all have to do a little "digging" yourself.

I'll post my solution in a spoiler though, as well as why I think it's right. Anyone else who wants to make a guess, please put your guess as a spoiler as well so other people can play along too.

If you want to get a jump start, the links I provided have the card images and their text.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention, the wiki I linked is wrong on one of the cardís hints: the wiki says card #9 is ďEIINĒ, it should be ďENN_Ē.
