Where is the lost treasure of Dead Man's Cave?



If you have plenty of time of your hands and wish to find some real gold bars then finding the caves somewhere in the wet mountains near Silvercliff is where you should venture.

As the legend goes in 1880, three prospectors were around two miles north of what is known today as Dead Man Camp. These prospectors were S.J. Harkman, H.A. Melton, and E.J. Oliver. A storm began to blow and a blizzard was in the making. The three started searching for shelter. They noticed a small opening in the wall of the canyon and made their way through the opening. Using their torches to light the way they came upon a 20-foot long room. There were other tunnels leading away from this one room. They picked one and headed deeper into the cavern until they reached a large vault like room. In this room, Melton noticed man made shelves carved into the wall, on the shelves were odd shaped stones. They all three examined the stones and found to their surprise it was crude bars of gold.

Once the storm let up, they headed immediately to Silvercliff each with 5 bars of gold. Once there they had the gold appraised and each bar was worth $900. Many people tried their best to get just one of the three to let them in on the whereabouts of the gold. However, neither of them would talk. In the spring, they headed out once more to retrieve this gold, but they could never find the exact location. As far as anyone knows, these crude shaped bars of gold are still on those man made shelves somewhere in the wet mountains.
