I have always had an interest in Utah's Legendary Treasures.  I guess since I live here I might as well take advantage and try to find them.  Reading through this website has me super curious as to what actually might be here in this State.   
Does anyone have any great ideas or leads they would like to persue?  Any information they would like to pass along? 

I'm pretty new to this but I'm always up for an adventure.

Matt

Utah is full of legends how many are true is questionable but still deserve a look around. Here is a place worth having a look'

frisco ,utah, Located about 16 miles west of milford near hwy 21.A very wild mining town in its time, when the Horn silver mine operated.During the  1880"s,it had around 26 saloons. Founded in 1875,a mine disaster, brought a overnight end. Their should be plenty of evidence of foundations,etc.,easy to locate. 26 saloons should equal plenty of coins to find. I do not know the land designation,private or BLM.

Haha there is no doubt that Utah has a crazy history and is notoriously full of liars and story tellers.  But there has got to be some great stuff here.  It would be fun to find some hot leads to pursue.  I will put Frisco on my list.  I know the area fairly well I'm pretty sire it is BLM.

True, there are numerous of legends in Utah. I am now in the PNW, but moved here after living in Utah for about 15 years. From "The old Spanish Trail" across the Uinta Mountains to "Montazuma's Gold" down by the Utah/Arizona border, and a whole lot in between. I started researching into some different projects there that I could do "locally," but quickly realized that I couldn't overfill my plate at the time. I am fully engaged in a project across seas, and consumes a lot of my everything at the moment. However, Utah has a lot to offer when it comes to "hidden treasure." It's out there, go get it!

Amen DIggin, Dont know about these HUGE lost hoards, but a few gold or silver coins or trinkets would be nice. COurse the probably thought they would never find the Atochia either.

I wouldn't waste any thought and time on Montazuma, but the Uinta's have not just treasure, but also old war paraphernalia such as guns, cannonballs and such. Not worth much in "coin" but still cool finds, nonetheless.

I know it is HUGE, but I know of some cool findings coming out of the west deserts too.

On a different note, Utah also has numerous ghost towns throughout the state. There is a book called "The Historical Guide To Utah Ghost Towns." By: Stephen L. Carr. Interesting, fun book.

Happy Trails!
