Where is the lost treasure of Esmerelda County?
There are many stories and legends of lost and buried
treasures throughout Nevada some of the most famous can be found in Esmerelda
Columbus, Nevada at one time was a very prosperous
mining town today it is nothing more than a ghost town. There is another mining
operation that is around two miles from the original one, which has some of the
remnants of the 1950 buildings around. It is believed that there is a hidden
cache of gold that was taken from highwaymen is hidden somewhere where Columbus
Goldfield Nevada has three reports of lost
treasures. A flash flood hit Goldfield on September 3, 1913, and two safes were
reported to have been washed away. The gully that was created washed items west
of Goldfield. It is believed that all the mud buried the safes. Today, these two
safes full of hundreds of gold coins have never been found.
In 1910 in Goldfield, two prospectors buried twenty
sacks of high-grade gold ore, which was valued at around $1,000 in a mine dump
between Goldfield and Diamond Field. As the legend goes, before either of the
men could come back and retrieve their gold they died.
One bizarre treasure tale is that of Harry Bishop.
At one time, he was a geologist and mining school graduate that worked in the
mine in Goldfield. During a terrible cave-in, Bishop was trapped. His leg had to
be amputated after his rescue. He was from that day forward unable to work in
the mines and was sent to work at the smelter. He blamed the cave-in in which he
lost his leg on the owners of the mine. To seek revenge, he began smuggling gold
out of the smelter with the help of his hollowed out wooden leg. He was finally
caught and sent to prison. It was estimated that Bishop had stolen over
$100,000, but only around $50,000 of the gold was found in his home when he was
arrested. Bishop never returned to Goldfield, so no one knows the whereabouts of
the remainder of the stolen gold.
