Buried Treasure In Montana

Buried treasure in Montana do exist. I have listed a few areas that have been rumored to hold treasures. However, I cannot promise that this information is completely accurate. As treasure tales go, because they have been passed down through many years, certain elements of the lost treasure story may have been altered, either intentionally or otherwise.

This information should be researched through other means as well. Never rely on one piece of information about a treasure story you are researching. Use multiple research tools.

A good place to start is on the Internet. Also check with the historical societies of the areas you will be searching in.

The Gold Treasure of Phillipsburg, is a story about a prospector in 1873 burying fifty pounds of gold nuggets in a tin can because he was being attacked by Indians.

The cache is suppose to be on the banks of the Flint River, approximately 2 miles south of Phillipsburg.
