    Barry County Treasure Cave

    This month's Lost Treasure magazine has an article of a lost silver mine in Barry county. This could tie in with the discussions in this forum of lost Spanish silver around the Springfield and Joplin area. Enjoy the article.

    Re: Barry County Treasure Cave

    Except some people swear that there aren't any silver mines around here... they were all lead mines mistaken for silver.
    Maybe the Spanish made lead bars and were transporting that??

    Rom. 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

    Rom. 10:10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

    silver and lead co-mingel in their natural state. gold is often a biproduct of these lead mines here in good ole Misery! the St. Joe lead mine in SE mo back in the 1930s was getting gold(and still is) from the 2000 foot level of their mine.if you look up certain mines youll see that they have a list of the most common minerals they get (1,2,3,4) even in the iron mines theyre getting gold. it maybe the 3rd or 4th common mineral but they AINT throwing it away! the yalso dont talk about what else theyre finding.my wifes family worked/lives down there.most of them are retired now.

    Re: Barry County Treasure Cave

    kind of makes me wonder about my hometown. Granby, Mo. "Oldest Zinc and Lead Mining Town in the Southwest", (says so on our water tower) ...Founded in 1850. lots of history here. Most of the mines never went below 100 feet...kinda makes you wonder if the gold is a little lower.

    Hi, I just joined up here, and I also live in Granby! I know this is an old post, but if you're still around, maybe we can compare notes, or hunt together sometime.
