The stories in this article have just basic information about a few lost treasures in Oregon, but you need to do more research. Check with the local historical societies for more information, and search the Internet. These two areas are a good start for your research.
If you do not own a metal detector, you should purchase one, and do not spend a lot of money. You can buy a good detector new, for between $350 and $450. You do not need a high end detector that has more controls than a Boeing 747. The more expensive models are for the more advanced hobbyist. Buy an inexpensive detector, read the owners manual, and practice using it. You will find just enough goodies with the less expensive models as many of the individuals who use the higher end detectors.
Here are six areas to begin your search for buried treasure in Oregon.
Copperfield, is a ghost town located on the Snake River, approximately twenty miles north of Robinette, on route 86. This town was founded in 1908, and then due to heavy criminal activity, was closed down by martial law in 1914. Because of the large amount of lawlessness there, hidden treasures may be lying in wait.
Dixie, is a ghost town located approximately four miles north of Gold Hill on route 5. Dixie was a booming gold town founded in 1862. It was abandoned in 1872.
The Lost Bear Creek Gold Mine, is located in Sacajewea Peak, in the Wallowa Mountains, halfway between Enterprise and Lookout Mountain.
Ontario, located on the north shore of Willow Creek, supposedly holds approximately $90,000 in gold bullion, and coins. They were buried by outlaw Indians.
Gold Beach, located on the coast on route 101, at the mouth of the Rogue River, get’s it’s name from a Spanish treasure ship that was wrecked here. The survivors buried large amounts of treasures in different areas along the beach. Over the years there have been caches located on and near Gold Beach.
The Miner‘s cache, is a story about a prospector burying $50,000 in gold dust and nuggets, a few hundred yards off Golden and Silber Falls, located in the Coast Range Mountains, approximately twenty-three miles northeast of North Bend, on route 101.
