Will open this topic primarily for others, but have many tales and accounts which I've researched out and feel to bear good merit - - but will for now, hold back to permit other members free floor space to bring theirs forth.
Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

There is a real good book on this topic "historic treasures and lost mines" by N.L Barlee.I purchased it on ebay I dont know if it is still published.I would recomend any book from N.L Barlee, he has alot of historic information and hard to get knowledge on old placer creek locations.

gnome;

The P'house Pub Gold-Panning Team has been going up to Coalmont on the Tulameen, and above for years.  It is our "Social Trip" of the year.  I have found three nice little nuggets, one just downstream from the Forestry Campsite, one out of Blakeburn Creek before it got hydrolicked, and one out of Lawless Creek, just up from the confluence with the Tulameen.  All were under a quarter oz. but way better than a poke in the eye from a sharp stick.  It took many hours and days of solid searching though!  It is an area with very little fine gold, so it can be very discouraging.  We go up there for the feel of the History, to hang out in the Coalmont Hotel and shoot BS stories with the locals.  When we want to find gold we go to Lytton.

Good Luck!!

There's also a great book that I just picked up at Deakin Industries in Vancouver called "Lost Bonanzas of Western Canada".. very interesting...  [!!DANCE!!]

I'm only guessing but I reckon rlknox was referring to Kingman Arizona, located on I-40 between Needles, California and Flagstaff, Arizona.

This is probably the story they are referring to http://www.legendsofamerica.com/AZ-CanyonStationTreasure.html
