THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Where is the treasure of the Lost Blue Bucket Mine?



In 1845 a group of settlers were heading west and decided to take a shortcut suggested by Joe Meeks, leaving the trail behind, they followed the Malhuer River in eastern Oregon.

On August 25 1845 three men from the party went in search of food. They stopped at a small to drink and found little shiny rocks and as they looked pretty, they threw a handful into a blue bucket.

Returning back to camp they showed the rocks to the rest of the party and all decided that they were copper. When asked how many there were one of the men replied "Enough to fill this blue bucket."

As they continued their journey the rocks were left behind but one of the members of the party, Mrs. Fisher, kept one as a souvenir.

Three year later the great California Gold Rush began and Mrs. Fisher discovered that the rocks that they had found were in fact gold.

The search for the Blue Bucket Mine has been going on since.

The mine is believed to be on a tributary of the John Day River in Oregon, but it hasn't been yet found.
