    Ark River Treasure

    From Treasure Search Aug 1980
    This was the answer when asked about ark River Relic locations near wichita.



    There is one known as the "Arkansas River Treasure" Located at the junction of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas Rivers, near Wichita. Some details can be found on pg 64 in the Directory of buried or Sunken Treasures and Lost Mines in the United States by Thomas Penfield and also in the Treasure Guide Series on Kansas pg 41.





    The article aslo states there is another treasure near Wichita, but it talkes about Gold Nuggets found along the Ark river between Cimarron Ks. and Chatoe's island (somewhere near Lakin) Not really near Wichita and because Chatoes island will never be found can not really pinpoint a location. It was called "Missouri Miners lost Gold"

    Re: Ark River Treasure

    Sorry the Last Post didnt make much sense. I was just reading old magazines. Here is one for the guys in Hays, if they are rockhounds.

    Q-What Kind of Rock Hunting can I do near Oakley Kansas?
    A- Try going south from Oakley to the Smokey River near Elkader. Many people have reported fine peices of moss opal in the gravel bars along the banks of the river. The material takes an outstanding polish and can be cut into fine gems. Dec 1981

    just to let you know where the two rivers meet, you're not going to be able to do much digging, it's all privately owned
