    Any interest in researching credible "UNFOUND" caches in Ca?

    I don't understand the last two threads on caches found some 35+ years ago!

    Isn't there any interesting things that are unfound that need further research?

    It's bad enough that this forum is so unused that we need somebody from out
    of state to come here to post.

    Mind you, we appreciate anyone from anywhere posting here. BUT, can't we
    find something a little more relevant to the times?

    Heck, I'll even settle for talk on some mythical treasure rather than that.

    Just MY 2 cents worth,

    I would be interested in finding someone interested in actually going out and taking a look around after some research has been done. There seems to be a number of lost caches, mines and gold bearing areas in Southern California worth searching for.

    I'm all about the research and exploration. If you have anything in particular you want me to focus on digging info up on, let me know.

    Hey custom, try to find the lost emerald mine out by Anza. There's lots of stories about it. I just don't know where to start researching. The closest I've gotten was that it was high up on a ridge.

    Rattlesnake Dick/Richard Barted, a bandit in northern California in the mid 1850s. Killed July 11, 1859. Plenty is known about his escapades. I have been having trouble locating his cabin outside of Folsom, CA. I will share some valuable information with anyone who can locate his cabin. I need its location as a starting place to follow a lead to a cache of gold and silver buried near by.
    If you want to take on this challenge. Thanks.

    I have been working on trying to uncover some more information on the Ruggles brothers of the Shasta county area, and what happened to the gold from their stage coach robbery.

    Also looking into more on the overturned Mormon wagon that had a large sum of gold in it, was in the Clear Creek area up here in Shasta county.

    Twisted One,
    I have a simular interest. And would be interested in a partner who knows the area. I live 220 miles south and researching the area will take someone living near by. A local would be most valuable. I have the equipment to shorten the search down to a single afternoon or two. I was involved in another project this year. But when the weather clears come spring. I will be out there. The land on both sights should be accessable.

    I have no real experience, but more than willing to help out if I am free when you come up. As soon as it warms up a bit I will probablly start going up that way and do a little scouting.

    Sounds like a plan. Research is 90% of cache hunting. If the location is accessable. And no one has beat us to it. We are in.

    They are many articles, books, and webpages regarding California Unfound treasures and caches. I've spent a lot of time researching these things for fun and go out and conduct some searches. Between the old settlers and indians in Southern California there are literally hundreds of stories.

    One i did years ago was researched old stage stops between big cities and gold digging.

    many miners traveling back to the cities from the gold fields in the 1800s would stop at stage stops for a few drinks and food.

    Stage stops were ruff places with some shady people hanging around.

    Many miners would hide there gold poke close to the stage stop before going in with plans to pick up there gold before they left. some never did for one reason or another.

    Also many operators of these stage stops hid there gold close to there stations and some may still be there.

    At one stage stop (freemans junction)there has been a couple gold assay buttons found near by with metal detectors

    And i found a small amount of gold nuggets at another one that i believe came from a gold poke as it was not a gold mining area and all the nuggets were in a group that you could cove with your hand.

    This book has been gone through and re-released by his daughter. It's available on Amazon for like $15.

    Edit:
