Lost Treasure Legends: Utah

Go on a real treasure hunt in Utah to find lost treasure!!!

Lost Army Payroll
In the late 1870s two army officers were transporting $60,000 in gold coin payroll and had made camp near the junction of Ferron, Huntington and Cottonwood Creeks, about 9 miles SE of Castle Dale. Fearing an Indian attack, they buried the coins and made their escape. Planning to keep the gold for himself, one killed the other and said it was the Indians. He wasn't believed and was sent to prison for 20 years. Upon release he looked for the treasure, but never found it.

Treasure of Dugway Pass
Two miles west of the old Dugway Stage Station, a party of 4 miners were killed at Dugway Pass by an Indian war party. Years later one of the Indians stated that all of the miner's belongings, including several heavy sacks of gold, were thrown into the deep cracks in the rocky ridge above the pass.
