Mystery of Lost Treasure | Deadman Cave

Mystery of Lost Treasure features a lost mine in Deadman Cave in Colorado. In the 1880s, three prospectors found human remains and gold bars in a cave just north of Deadman Camp. Is there more gold waiting to be found?

    I’m older than you, and a native, as well as a native of Colo. You need to quit posting fables you know nothing about!

    A few years ago I was working a reconstruction gig at the local hospital in the area and passed by the Deadman camp everyday to and from 2ork . Never once did i stop and explore there. I Always either explored/rock hounded Jasper, the lost burro, crystal hill or the wagon trail areas. Wagon trail being my favorite, because once i got lost and found a road leading to the old 1st dump and rifle range….looks like we’ll be spending the fall down there. Wonder if my cabin would be available. Ooops sorry, i was think typing out loud again…..

    I have read a couple other versions of this story, and find it interesting. This version has details that were not in the others, and I doubt the authenticity of. These 3 men would not have been likely to give out information to help others find what they wanted to keep. Also, I have been in the area a bit, and north of dead mans camp is flat desert. In what I consider to be a more realistic version, they were starting to go over a pass to Westcliff/Silvercliff when the blizzard hit. This would have put them in terrain more likely to have a cave such as is described here.

    I’ve read about this story as well, there’s no way it is N of that camp if they ended up going east of that mountain range through the wet mountain valley. In the mountains southeast of crestone would be my guess.
