Lost Cabin Gold Mine – Oregon’s Lost Treasure
Lost Cabin Mine of Oregon …Not a Myth?
Well hidden within the Siskiyou Mountains: 2 cabins sit atop a steep terrace of fallen rock, 2 fallen trees lie crossing each other, and sit near the cabin. Several sizeable pocket mine diggings sit only feet away, in direct view of the cabin. –
Once upon a time, far out west in a land we all know well, there wandered a weary miner. In a dangerous new land, where bear roam and herds of elk run in grassy meadows underneath glaciered snow tipped mountains and trees of gigantic proportions. Pushing his way through the thick Siskiyou mountains of Northern California, there was a man seeking to find great wealth in the hills of this rugged new land. One day this man did indeed find his fortune in gold. …and this is where the tale begins… in those lonesome mountains of Southern Oregon.
The tale of a Lost Cabin Gold Mine of Oregon is a story that has since been told for over 150 years. Well known in the early mining days, the tale inspired the hearts of the masses. It may have even caused its own gold rush into the Oregon country, for the tale pre-dates the first documented discovery of gold in Oregon.
The remains of an old sluice box still lying in the old camp, reminiscent evidence of an earlier time when miners worked the nearby land for gold.
Many have claimed to have stumbled upon these ruins, generally described as being a dilapidated cabin with a sluice box laying nearby, left abandoned by its owner, and hidden well within the thick of the forest. After finding it though, they could never relocate it again. Or could there be another reason for it not being found again…? Maybe someone did find it, and not just once, but maybe many times over. It is well known that many men put their savings at stake looking for this place. Each time it has been found and lost, father time hid it well, leaving it only for the next adventurous soul to find.
