Where are the lost gold coins in Bloody Springs?



It was the early days of the Gold Rush in California and this area of the country was continually seeing battles between the white men who came in search of fortune and the Indians, who were fighting to protect their home that was increasingly becoming encroached upon. Prospectors that tried to enter California from the northeast were in particular danger.

This was where the California Trail was located and the trail travelled south into Sacramento Valley through to Pit River route. It was here that there were particularly nasty battles between the two groups and many massacres were seen. This was how it was come to be known as Bloody Springs. One group of prospectors was attacked so violently here that the entire group was killed except one man. The man started towards Fort Cook and would tell his story to people he met along the way.

He told of how his wagonload was a load of twenty-dollar gold coins, totalling approximately $60,000. According to his story, as he was leaving he saw the Indians playing a game with the gold coin. They were taking turns throwing the coins over the Pit River gorge, to see who could throw them the furthest. The Indians played the game until every coin had been thrown across. The area today is still known as Bloody Springs in Lassen County.
