Golden Rhoades – The Search for the Lost Utah Gold Treasure

Golden Rhoades – The Search for the Lost Utah Gold Treasure

“Golden Rhoades” – the Historical Hunt for the Legendary Lost Rhoades Mines. This film superbly documents the epic search and potential discovery of one of the largest hidden treasures in America. A secret cache believed by many to contain a wealth of gold and natural resources; it is commonly believed that the mines may contain an abundance of riches so vast that it could cover the national debt! The Rhoades Mines’ protected location is believed (speculated) to have been provided to the Mormon church by the Ute Indians in order for the church to survive its difficult pioneering into Utah. The film is the only feature length documentary that delves into the myth, fact, and fiction surrounding an amazing tale of adventure, treasure maps, mysterious deaths, and intriguing characters. It provides details and clues to the mines that have eluded thousands of prospectors for over one hundred and fifty years. The film was shot (much in confidential locations) throughout the vast Ute Indian Territory and surrounding Utah Rocky Mountains.

    This is one of the best real treasure movies I’ve ever seen. I loved the History, landscapes, lakes and all the characters. It’s just so sad that so many along the way passed on 🙏🕊💫 I’m going to watch more on this channel I just subbed. I really believe in my heart the darn Mormons need and should give back whatever they’ve taken from the UTE Americans . It doesn’t belong to them they’re not even from America they came over by boat from all over fleeing what was done to them and now doing to the Ute. God Bless All🙏❤🕊💫

    To me it looked like an oxide copper smelter not gold.

    There was probably some rich oxide copper ore near the smelter on the surface that they quickly exhausted.

    Iv’e looked for the mine also. But the beauty of nature are much more richer.***

    Someone needs to travel to Spain and see what stories and rumors the old timers have regarding this part of the shared history.

  15. Bill Weaver on January 26, 2023 at 5:43 am

    Cannot believe I just came across this today. AWESOME work, real people, real history, and fascinated every second of it.

    Thank you for the hard work putting this together.

    People don’t realize how dangerous the Indians were back then. Cause every story ends with the Spanish showing up to a mine, scouted a great spot in geology. Then the Indians will watch them for sometime until one morning at breakfast massacred. The Indians tend to also shove the bodies and their gold in a cave nearby also. It becomes an Indian Chief cache in this cave. Where victims are placed for entering area. Gold stacked up against wall.

  17. Bernice Perry on January 26, 2023 at 5:48 am

    No spirit would stop me from looking if I thot I could find the mine….

  18. Montney [Mon-ta-knee] on January 26, 2023 at 5:49 am

    i found a flur-da-le and 7 animal markings i wrote down the coordinance

  19. kolton crane on January 26, 2023 at 5:51 am

    The church was given a chance to take a copper map but the church said no we don’t have documentation saying we own it. If the church was trying to keep places secret they would have took the map. A guy wrote a book about it.

  20. Montney [Mon-ta-knee] on January 26, 2023 at 5:52 am

    permit to mine on our land. ute land i understand but us land belong to the people

  21. Justin Bradfield on January 26, 2023 at 5:55 am

    Very Very Interesting!!!!!! Thank u for posting this!!!!!!

  22. Polymath Perspective on January 26, 2023 at 5:57 am

    Everybody uses landmarks to get places the Spanish even knew cryptology and coded the maps. They would climb up to a high place and then sketch a land survey of area. Drawing a river or creek system from above. They also used stones wedged in trees along the way as the path to the mine. Other times they may find a gold vein on a hill with dense tree canopies so they will build a concrete structure that pokes out of canopy for others back in Mexico to see the landmark and find it. It is impossible to use words to send someone to a specific location without using landmarks. The only other way is numbers (coordinates)

    Talk about a anti religious BS video…

  24. kolton crane on January 26, 2023 at 6:00 am

    If god made all things to be in harmony and a human finding gold is out of harmony why then did god create gold? It’s like Adam and Eve story. God said multiply and don’t eat this fruit to have an adult level of consciousness. You can’t have sex with the mind of a toddler or child. There’s the outlier nine year old that has a baby but most children don’t have kids. God gave two commandments that were contradictory to each other. They didn’t eat the fruit then they didn’t have kids, they ate and were kicked out but then had kids. Makes ya think why weren’t they kicked out for not having kids cause that broke one rule too? Maybe the guy was right god wants things to be in harmony but god definitely encourages disharmony by the way he setup this society. If you lived in harmony or bliss not knowing pain ya wouldn’t know joy.

    Like natives are against gold I get because they were slaves, but then a natives also took slaves from other tribes and sold natives to the Spanish or other tribes etc. it’s like if slavery and death made natives not like gold it makes ya wonder why did natives then continue to practice slavery if they were once slaves and they didn’t like slavery? I’ve never figured that out. Like you’d think the culture would have changed or been different

    The arpa act is worthless as its native lands.

  27. shucksful on January 26, 2023 at 6:04 am

    You’re being lied to…the true origin of gold, quartz, and bedrock is here

    The part talking about the rockslide where two rabbits came out from under some rocks, is exactly how discoveries are made. By being curious and intrigued he investigated “where did these rabbits come from?” Finds mine. Also the rockslide was most likely man made by Indians to cover its entrance. Concealing it

  30. Marshal Krieg on January 26, 2023 at 6:11 am

    I find it ironic that the Spaniards were supposedly able to find abundant gold in Uinta area yet modern day people cannot.
