4. Gorder’s Gold
The California Gold Rush took place between 1848 to 1855. Over 300,000 prospectors were part of the phenomenon, flocking to California from all over the world. One of these people was a Frenchman named Henry Gordierr. After finding a sizeable amount of gold, Gordier knew he no longer wanted to keep mining. In 1857, he purchased land in Honey Lake Valley, California and lived out his days as a rancher. Then, all of a sudden, he disappeared, and three strange men occupied the house instead. They told everyone that Gordier went back to France, but when Gordier’s body turned up in the Susan River, police arrested the men. Two were hanged, one vanished. With that last man went Gordier’s $40,000 worth of gold, which now would be worth over $1.1 million.
3. Forrest Fenn’s Hidden Trove
Forrest Fenn was an author, art dealer, and former pilot. After he retired from the United States Air Force, he became interested in owning art galleries and eventually opened Fenn Galleries with his wife. They later sold the gallery after Fenn’s retirement. When he became terminally ill, Fenn decided to hide a chest full of jewelry, gemstones, rare coins, and gold nuggets. He told everyone that he hid the container somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. To give you an idea of how vast that area is, the Rocky Mountains span from British Columbia and Alberta then through Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. As a result, not one soul has been able to recover Fenn’s treasure.
2. The Lost Dutchman
Jacob Waltz was a German immigrant who lived between 1810 to 1891. He is the sole person who knows the location of a rich gold mine sitting somewhere in the southwestern United States. That mine was misleadingly named “the Lost Dutchman’s Mine” though Waltz was German. Most fortune hunters believe that this cave full of gold is somewhere in the Superstition Mountains near Phoenix, Arizona. One popular theory that the mine belonged to members of the Apache Tribe and that they awarded the gold to a man named Dr. Thorn who treated aye-ling Apache members. Though this is an exciting story, historians say it is highly unlikely.
