Some Nevada Lost Treasures - Part 2
If you travel to Sand Springs Nevada and are in search
of gold, you may wish to venture off to the small mountain range known as
Painted Hills. Here in the 1860’s, a map maker, William Henry Knight, for the
United States Department of the Interior was compiling information for maps of
the Pacific States when he happened upon a cave. He reported the walls of the
cave were laced with gold. However, Mr. Knight lost his sense of direction in
the mountains and once he left he never found this cave again. So, if you are
planning on searching for the gold, be sure to bring along something to haul out
your find or you may find yourself like Mr. Knight lost without any gold.
A Mormon caravan was traveling through the area
between Cave Valley and Ash Meadows close to Carp. Here it is reported that they
lost gold from the caravan. This gold has never been recovered.
A payroll that was headed to workers at the
Candaleria Mines was stolen and it is believed that the bandits hid the payroll
near Mina in Mineral County.
Campers during 1867 is said to have buried $50,000
in gold coins in zinc capped jars around 10 miles south of Hiko, somewhere in
the Pahranagat Valley under an oak grove.
A very large gold cache was stolen from Virginia
City several years ago and it is believed that the cache was buried in Storey
County. The exact location is close by an arch of stone that is five feet wide
and five feet tall and can be found in the rough terrain northwest of Virginia
Storey County - Long ago a large gold cache was
stolen from Virginia City and is said to be buried near an arch of stone that
stands five feet wide and five feet tall. The arch is located in the rugged
country northwest of Virginia City.
The path between Carson City and the town of Ramsey was at one time traveled by
many, bandits, robbers, and of course settlers. Today, the town of Ramsey is
nothing more than a ghost town hiding all the secrets of the past. However,
somewhere close by the Six Mile Canyon close to the path once traveled is the
treasure of a bank robber that buried all his ill-gotten gains.
