The Lost Dutchman's Mine | Superstition Mountains

THE LOST DUTCHMAN’S MINE

The Lost Dutchman’s mine has possibly the most famous treasure hunting stories and legends in the United States. Many people have ventured into the Superstition Mountains of Arizona to look for the lost gold mine. Some believe they know where it is today and yet, no big news of a large amount of gold has circulated into the gold market. 

I believe the Lost Dutchman’s gold mine is still out there, waiting to be discovered. The rumors suggest that the seeker could find millions of dollars worth in gold. When one is in search of the mysteries and searching the legends surrounding this area and legend, there can be risks! Some treasure hunters, advanced and beginners, have died looking for the mine. Be careful of the hot summers and plan accordingly. 

 

 

 

LOST JOSEPHINE MINE AND THE CACHE

From the late 1400s to the late 1800s, Spain was one of the most powerful countries that traveled to America. The Spanish, also known as the Conquistadors, mined and conquered many areas in all of America. One of the most famous mines Spain ever mined was named the “Josephine Mine”. Some would also call it the “Josephina Mine”.

Records tell of extremely rich gold and silver mine that could be in the high Uinta Mountains in Northern Utah. Many known treasure hunters have looked for it and many have stumbled upon lost records, maps, and old Spanish documents that point the way. The Spanish Waybill explains that the gold and silver was abandoned due to fear because of local Ute Indians. Do you have what it takes to follow the clues? 

 

 

 

BEST-15-TREASURES-STILL-LOST-IN-AMERICA

BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE CASTLE GATE ROBBERY

Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch staged many robberies and many people think their buried caches are still out there. Utah is a great state to start your hunt for tracking down Butch Cassidy’s treasures. The Treasures in America team joined with Chris Jericho and the Travel Channel to find the Castle Gate Robbery loot. 

We were unsuccessful with finding the buried gold but we did find many clues. We know where Robbers Roost is located and we found many secret locations where we think the Wild Butch could have hidden the gold and other valuable treasures. If you take a look at this article about our adventure and treasure hunt, I think you could have a chance at locating the gold.  

 

 

 

LOST SPANISH TREASURE AND MINES

The Spanish mined and buried treasure in many places. The best trail to follow is from Mexico City to the North through Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah. Many clues can be found and Spanish mines and buried cache locations can be easy to identify if you know what to look for. 

Finding the clues to locate old Spanish mines and treasures can be difficult and that’s why we think you should follow the clues that we have discovered to help point you in the right direction. This story was given to the Treasures in America team by a local Indian tribe that had history with the Spanish explorations. There’s a chance of finding 400 Spanish silver bars worth up to 3 million dollars today. 

 

 

 

Knights Templar Treasure

THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR TREASURE 

The Knights Templar treasure is said to be so large that it’s not meant for one man. Some believe it is still guarded by the Knight Templar today. This could be a priceless treasure due to the many ancient and biblical artifacts that are said to be included with this vast treasure. Where to look for the treasure? 

Many, including myself, believe the Knights Templar treasure is hidden in North America. Many clues lead historical researchers to America. Some clues can be found in the Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. In this article, you can follow the clues and set out in the wild to find more clues. You can team up and find many experts that have researched the Templars for many years. The treasure is still out there, waiting to be discovered.

 

 

 

Lost Mixtec City Mexico Discovery

ANCIENT LOST CITY OF MEXICO 

There is a small village, deep into Mexico that is holding on to one of the greatest secrets in modern day Mexican history. This village is built on top of a buried ancient city. The local village today thinks they built their village on top of one of the lost Mixtec cities. The Mixtec were known for their gold sculptures, artifacts, and much more. 

The modern village has known about this secret for about 500 years and has kept this discovery secret from their own government for fear of Mexico taking their lands away. For 500 years, after the monsoon season, the villagers cover the ancient ruins with mud so no one can see the evidence that only heavy rain can disclose. 

 

 

Unknown Tunnel | Underground Egyptian City Hidden in the Grand Canyon -BEST-15-TREASURES-STILL-LOST-IN-AMERICA

EGYPTIAN CITY HIDDEN IN THE GRAND CANYON 

Is it possible that our government and other organizations like the Smithsonian could be hiding one of the most important discoveries ever made in the Grand Canyon? This article follows the discovery and the people involved. This could be even more important than the KnightsTemplar treasure. The history itself of this mystery could change everything we think we know about Egypt and its wonders. 

The secret location is believed to be in a tight canyon that is only a no-fly zone but really hard to get to by foot. Some people pass the location of the lost Egyptian City by boat on the Colorado River daily, not aware of its whereabouts. If you go out venturing for this treasure, you’ll not only find lost relics and statues inside an underground city, but you could help change history as we know it in America. 

 

 

 

World War II - Hitler's Gold

NAZI GOLD AND TREASURE IN NORTH AMERICA 

Hitler wanted to win the war and he was willing to do whatever he could to stop the United States of America from fighting. He created a plan that he started to carry out. This plan was to smuggle millions of dollars of gold bars into North America and the plan was to release it all at one time to crash America’s economy. 

His plans didn’t go as he wanted it to and still today a treasure of Nazi gold bars stay hidden in New Mexico worth over 100,000 million dollars. Many people in the Western states have found clues to this treasure. We wrote an article about discoveries. This is truly a treasure to seek after and if you follow the Lue Map, some believe that you could be the one to find Hitler’s gold. 

 

 

 

Tayo's Cave and the Metal Library - BEST-15-TREASURES-STILL-LOST-IN-AMERICA

THE TAYOS CAVE AND THE METAL LIBRARY 

The Tayos cave and the metal library legend comes from the Andes Mountains, deep in the jungle of Ecuador. Once you read our article you will see that many famous people, like Neil Armstrong, took up treasure hunting because of this story. Local tribes in Ecuador today are still hiding the secret location. 

To find this treasure, you’ll have to think past the tourist section of the Tayos cave. You will have to dig deep into the lost history to find the right entrance to this extremely large cave. History does show that many ancient civilizations lived in underground cities and used them for hiding spots for their valuables. The Tayos Cave and the metal library could be a huge discovery of lost history and riches beyond your wildest dreams.

 

 

 

Rain Forest of Honduras

THE ANCIENT CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD 

Many lost cities are waiting to be uncovered in Central America. Science and modern day equipment have shown that there are thousands of buried cities still waiting to be found. The Lost City of the Monkey God, known today as the Lost City of the Jaguar can be found in one of the most dangerous places in the world, Honduras. This country is very dangerous due to crime and drug cartels but the Lost City of the Jaguar creates even more risk. 

The city was explored and filmed in 2018 and every person involved had to abandon their research due to an illness that almost killed their group. Local tribes call it a curse. The 2018 exploration of this group also revealed that 14 cities or targets were found by LiDar technology. There’s much to discover about this unknown civilization and the treasures they left behind.

 

 

 

The Lost Rhoades Mines and Spanish Mines

TREASURES OF THE UINTA MOUNTAINS UTAH

The Uinta Mountains of Utah have proven to be a great place to look for treasures. Some are looking for Spanish treasures while others are looking for Montezuma’s treasure, outlaw loot, and lost civilizations in this mountain range. One thing is for sure, the Uinta Mountains have many mysteries to discover. TV shows like The Secrets of Skinwalker Ranch and Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch are filmed in the Uinta Basin. 

Entertainment shows are finally seeing the Uinta Mountains of Utah for what they are, mysterious and full of legends. Do your homework and if you live in Utah, this should be a main focal point for you to start your journey today. 

 

 

 

BEST-15-TREASURES-STILL-LOST-IN-AMERICA

THE SEARCH FOR AZTEC TREASURE & AZTLAN

The mighty Aztecs were disguised by the Spanish when Cortez ventured into Mexico. They were only in the Mexico City area for a little over 200 years. Where did they come from and where did they live before that? Many believe that the Aztec people came from their homeland called Aztalan which is located in North America. Some believe that Montezuma had time to hide the vast Aztec treasure before the Spanish were successful in conquering their city. 

Many believe that the rich treasures of the Aztecs were taken back to their homeland of Aztlan and still today, treasure hunters are trying to find clues to unlock its location. Our team has spent many years tracking down information and clues to Aztlan and this article could shed some light on the treasure’s locations and where to start your search. 

 

 

 

Sunken Ships and Treasure Hunting

SUNKEN TREASURES OF THE CARIBBEAN 

All the treasures, gold, silver, and other valuables came from the Americas and were placed on ships for transfer to Spain, England, France, and other counties but many of these ships never made it back to the docks. The Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea is full of sunken treasures still waiting to be discovered. Priceless artifacts and billions of dollars in silver and gold can be found. 

You just have to know the history, ports, and routes to find these treasures. Many locals illegally hunt for sunken treasures in Cancun and other locations in the region. Do you have what it takes to find these ships loaded with treasure? The pirates in the 1700’s did and even when they were successful in finding and stealing a treasure ship, that ship had a 35% chance of sinking too. There’s so much to look for.

THE LOST RIVER OF GOLD – KOKOWEEF PEAK  

Gold has never been a small thing in California. Even today mining operations are locating metals from the earth. What if I told you that there’s an underground cave with a river that is holding so much gold, that you would never have to worry about money again if you find it. The Treasures in America team has unlocked many clues to help you find it. 

You never know, you may run into our team as we are currently working on this story and location. There’s not only gold and a cave of wonders to find here. Many people have other stories, like local Indians about this story. It is one to read and one to explore that’s for sure. The discovery of the cave itself could land you in the National Geographic Magazine. 

 

 

 

lost-city-z-location-discovery-BEST-15-TREASURES-STILL-LOST-IN-AMERICA

THE LOST CITY OF Z – THE FORGOTTEN RUINS OF BRAZIL

Manuscript 512 from a Portuguese explorer in 1753 wrote of his discovery that inspired England and other Countries to send amateur explorers deep in the Amazon to seek out a city, not of native creation. Manuscript 512 tells of statues of what seems to be white men, similar to ancient Roman type statues, columns, and temples. In the early 1900s, Percy Fawcett was close to discovering the location but he never returned home. Many think he was killed by natives.

World War I and World War 2 came and went, and the city was once again forgotten. I believe that true explorers are few and far between in these modern days, and that’s why the Lost City of Z is still undiscovered. Reports of LiDAR used in the early 21st century tell of lost roads, structures, and cities buried in the jungle in the remote area that Fawcett claimed. Are these LiDAR discoveries the Lost City of Z or something else? Who has what it takes to find this mysterious city?
