Where is the treasure of the lost Hardin Mine?



In 1849, Allen Hardin or Harding along with two others was working for a wagon train. When they arrived at a location somewhere between Mud Meadows and Black Rock they stopped and went hunting for food. They worked their way along the western edge of the Black Rock desert and quite a few miles north of Double Hot Springs, when they noticed something shiny in the bottom of the ravine. Assuming this large slab of rock was in deed lead; they picked up some of the heavy ore and took it back to camp. They melted down the lead and made bullets with the ore. Hardin kept a small piece of the ore for later. No one really knows for sure if Hardin had the piece of ore assayed but many that saw what he and the others had found swore it was silver.

Hardin moved to Petaluma, California. In 1858, he found others willing to go on an expedition to the Black Rock area in search of this silver ore. However, no member of his expedition found even a trace of silver and to this day, the silver slab that he and the other wagon train workers discovered has ever been located.

Many people speculate that the ore could have been washed out of the ground and into the raven where Hardin had found it. If there was any type of silver ore or any other rich metal around the Black Rock area it was never discovered. Many mills were built to process ore but ore was never found to process and the mills were never used.
