KANAKA JACK'S MINE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is the lost treasure of Kanaka Jack's Mine?
In El Dorado County in California, many years before
any one had heard of the gold rush, natives of the Hawaiian Islands were here
during the 1800’s. The native’s were known as Kanakas. They worked in the hide
and tallow trade before creating permanent settlements and farming through what
is now known as California.
The Kanaka’s established the first town in El
Dorado County; they were rather quiet and enjoyed life farming until gold was
discovered in the area. Along with along others searching for their fortune in
gold many of the Kanakas joined in the mining. Their little settlement town soon
became known as Kanaka Town. Many of the islanders along with other miners sold
their produce from farming in a nearby village called Coloma.
“Kanaka Jack” was one of the islanders that was
soon seen in the village of Coloma bringing in large amounts of gold that he had
found along Irish Creek which was close to the town. Many in the area began
calling it the Kanaka Jack Mine. Kanaka Jack died in 1912 before telling anyone
where his mine was located.
Many treasure seekers have to this day tried in
vain to locate the lost Kanaka Jack Mine.
