Where is the Gambler’s Gold at McCann’s Summit?



Tybo, Nevada was a mining town back in the 1870’s and 1880’s. Of course, like many mining backs on payday the saloons were a very big hang out.

A gambler from Belmont learned when the miners would have their paychecks and went to visit the small town of 1000 residents. He stayed for two long days and accumulated over $3,000 of the hard-earned money of the miners with a run of very good luck. On the third, however, he began to think about the rumors he had heard of what miners could do if they believed that a man was not using only good luck to win all their money.

He put all of his winning in a canvas ore sack, made it to the stage near the edge of town and headed to Belmont. The driver of the stagecoach, remember how the gambler seemed a bit worried.

When the stage arrived at McCann’s summit, a resting spot for the horses, the gambler threw the driver a $5 gold piece and asked the driver to wait for him at Charcoal kilns about a mile down the road. He left the stage and went into the trees.

The stagecoach driver stopped at the kilns and within 10 minutes, the gambler came from the tress. He did not have the sack of money with him and explained to the driver that he would come back later to retrieve the sack once he was sure that the miners in Tybo were not after him.

The gambler never returned. He met with bullet when he met with a poor loser at poker. As far as anyone knows, the sack of gold is still buried in a hand-dug hole between McCann’s Summit and the kiln.
