    Laughing to the bank???? Simon was that a chief keef reference

  2. Golf Nut on September 27, 2022 at 10:09 am

    Simon… Love your stuff. I am ALWAYS looking for more content by you!!!!!

    Gold is incredibly easy to smelt.

  4. John Ghiglione on September 27, 2022 at 10:11 am

    I have never believed that the Forest Fenn Treasure was recovered. I believe that Forest Fenn made that up because he passed away a couple months after it was supposedly found. There are a bunch of things that seem kind of shady which how it went down. A couple years ago I made a YouTube video about what I talked about here. If you want to check that video out go to Fierce Lion Vlogs to see that video.

    I would love an analysis of what duties and powers the remaining European Royals have. What can Queen Margarit do that Queen Elizabeth canโ€™t.

  6. Eric Day on September 27, 2022 at 10:13 am

    Who ever finds the first one would be smart to invest in a melting furnace, some casting forms, a stout home safe, and not tell a soul how they came upon 800lbs of previously stolen gold.

    want a good mystery from America?
    In the early 90โ€™s a man invented a car that ran on water vapor and drove it across the entire country.
    He sold the patent to a major car manufacturer, They hid it away from the world and porbably destroyed any chance of anyone ever seeing how it was made . To keep them rich and the world reliant on oil.

    That man later took a drink out of his refrigerator, swallowed a sip, looked at his brother and said they poisoned me ( something along those lines) and dropped dead .

    well I guess itโ€™s one of those American mysteries like how Joe Biden became president when everyone went to sleep with Trump winning by a landslide and by the morning somehow Biden had all these last minute, overnight votes and was way ahead. lol

    you should do a video about the Oak Island treasure

  9. siggiesis on September 27, 2022 at 10:15 am

    Conspiracy theory alert: Duh, the US owns the Dutchman’s mine ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜œ

  10. osiris5432 on September 27, 2022 at 10:17 am

    The pastor that died in this search was my cousin. He claimed it would be the last great adventure he’d get to go on before his ill health took him for good. Me and most of the family never held any ill will towards the the organizers of the search.

  11. Doug Botimer on September 27, 2022 at 10:17 am

    Iโ€™m confused, itโ€™s called the Eastern Idaho robbery, but occurred in Ada County, which borders Oregon on Idahoโ€™s western border. Maybe the geographical confusion is why no one found the gold.

  12. Rosseboi on September 27, 2022 at 10:18 am

    If I found 800 pounds of gold on federal land I’d quickly learn how to make jewellery and sell it off piecemeal

  13. Outis on September 27, 2022 at 10:20 am

    Sad to hear people are so salty about missing out on a treasure, the thrill is in the hunt not in holding onto the treasure you find.

  14. Chloe Damone on September 27, 2022 at 10:25 am

    Wait itโ€™s losssuit not lawsuit???

  15. Josephine Nilsson on September 27, 2022 at 10:27 am

    I once saw a YouTube-video not hosted by Simon. I did not know what to make of it, it was baffling.

    Great video anyway as always ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  16. Audrey Muzingo on September 27, 2022 at 10:28 am

    I know what would give disappointed searchers some closure about someone else finding the treasure: If Stuef would get together with some talented production people and make a documentary about his search and discovery, along with whatever of sharing he’d be willing to do about himself and other people in his life before, during and after the search. Everyone’s got a story, and although he doesn’t "owe" his to anybody, I think it would really soothe the sore folks if they at least got to find the treasure by-proxy. Heck, the video could even include the experiences of some other people who tried! I’ve only been mildly interested in this story, but I’d watch the hell out of a wrap-up documentary about it!

  18. Mad Madam Meag on September 27, 2022 at 10:30 am

    The gold from the train was taken by the driver and guard. Guarantee it. Or some much smarter bandits that were on the train. Ooo That’d be a good plot….. Thank you Simon you just gave me an idea.

  19. Yayenia on September 27, 2022 at 10:31 am

    Boy-see, not Boy-zee. Thanks for featuring Idaho though, we only make the news for idiotic medieval politicians and ideals these days.

  20. Cas on September 27, 2022 at 10:32 am

    How many fucking channels does this guy have? He must be raking it in

  21. Paul Ceglinski on September 27, 2022 at 10:33 am

    Excellent video again. Simon, you are absolutely brilliant. With your cheeky delivery, you could do a vid on the phone book and it would be the most entertaining thing ever. Brilliant, Lad, brilliant. Cheers.

  22. Janice Sullivan on September 27, 2022 at 10:35 am

    I used to live in Arizona, I could see Superstition Mountain from my patio, people would always get into trouble looking for buried treasure.

  23. Iron Reed on September 27, 2022 at 10:36 am

    From what I understand finding buried treasure in the UK is even worst, like the Crown has an outright claim on all of it in advance…I think you get a nice letter if you turn it in and jail if you don’t.

  24. Thomas Sherer on September 27, 2022 at 10:36 am

    There are more.

  25. Trisha Pellis on September 27, 2022 at 10:37 am

    First one, very possible it was already found and melted down in someone’s backyard crucible. A prepper’s got that stuff stored in a bunker for the zombie apocalypse. Or, yeah, alternatively, black market contacts. It’s not hard to find the Dark Web nowadays.
    As long as you can get those serial numbers off, ain’t nobody gonna prove that this specific load of gold you’ve got here is that particular treasure which this insurer paid for.

  26. Anthony Shereda on September 27, 2022 at 10:38 am

    530-550 confuse anyone else?

  27. Charles Westphal on September 27, 2022 at 10:38 am

    Ugh it’s pronounced Boise not Boyzee.

  28. Alex Lubbers on September 27, 2022 at 10:39 am

    The Superstition Mountains are really beautiful, there’s a road that winds its way between the outskirts of Phoenix and Roosevelt Lake. Very impressive terrain.

  29. Rule Britannia on September 27, 2022 at 10:41 am

    Who gets a ship from San Francisco to New orelens

  30. Adventuring with my kids on September 27, 2022 at 10:42 am

    Great video I recently found a guy called finding tugz and seems pretty cool!

  31. Dylan Wickund on September 27, 2022 at 10:43 am

    The dutchmans mine is a made up story to cover up what he was stealing from the mine he worked at

  32. Drew MacGregor on September 27, 2022 at 10:43 am

    Great videos, but youโ€™re talking about a stage coach while showing a video of a train carriage

  33. Nick McCormack on September 27, 2022 at 10:43 am

    Why did you show a train when talking about a stagecoach robbery?

  34. Lotusrk123 on September 27, 2022 at 10:43 am

    Do a video on how Ft. Knox gold bars (some belonging to foreign nations) got re-smelted with tungsten cores (making gold-plated fake bars) and a portion of the stolen gold ended up in an ex-President’s office; until we finally got an HONEST President who sent the FBI to search and recover.

    Mmmmmmm possibly all treasures hunts are tests of the spirit/mind/body they let people show their true colors from the surface to the latent positive/negative aspects of an individualโ€™s makeup. Mmmmmmm…………????mmmm…….?!!!??!?!?!!??!!

  37. Mr. Crowley on September 27, 2022 at 10:50 am

    #freedanny wait wrong channel

  38. Chris Boone on September 27, 2022 at 10:50 am

    I live in idaho….where exactly is this?

  39. david bright on September 27, 2022 at 10:51 am

    The only gold found near the superstition mnts have been near apache junction where there a few gold mines. And geologists said the sups don’t have the right history for gold

    Also Forest Fenn was a documented Indian grave robber, and selling items to Europe. The sad thing is the law doesn’t apply to private land and such.

  40. badwolf73 on September 27, 2022 at 10:52 am

    "Marauding Apaches" instead of that, how about something closer to the truth and call them freedom fighters defending their land and lives. Phrases like the above just back up the white washed BS that passes as American history instead of telling the truth about the country and how it was stolen.

  41. Dire on September 27, 2022 at 10:52 am

    Why donate to charity when you can set up a treasure hunt in dangerous terrain that gets people killed, injured & ruins lives

  42. Cote Moretz on September 27, 2022 at 10:53 am

    I was surprised you didnโ€™t mention โ€œthe secretโ€ in this video there are still several treasures from that book that havenโ€™t been found. Although Iโ€™m hoping to be part of that tale soon enough

  43. Jody Swallow on September 27, 2022 at 10:53 am

    Hide some treasure for somebody to find and get sued, only in America.

  44. Donald Paul on September 27, 2022 at 10:54 am

    There is a monsters and mysteries in America episode about the losts Dutchman mine.

  45. btetschner on September 27, 2022 at 10:57 am

    Very interesting, thank you for the video.

  46. Dwayne Hendrickson on September 27, 2022 at 11:00 am

    Eight centuries? More like eight decades.

  47. John Ralph on September 27, 2022 at 11:01 am

    At some point, watching the National Treasure movies, you realize Nicholas Cage is the national treasure.

  48. Nelson Ward on September 27, 2022 at 11:01 am

    I live right beneath Superstition Mountain, most of the legend is just a hoax.

  49. floyd pollard on September 27, 2022 at 11:01 am

    people are idiots! be happy for the guy , he found it.leae him alone idiots!

  50. fred flintstoner on September 27, 2022 at 11:07 am

    Mrs Richards: "I paid for a room with a view!"
    Basil: (pointing to the lovely view) "That is Torquay, Madam."
    Mrs Richards: "It’s not good enough!"
    Basil: "May I ask what you were expecting to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? the Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically past?…"
    Mrs Richards: "Don’t be silly! I expect to be able to see the sea!"
    Basil: "You can see the sea, it’s over there between the land and the sky."
    Mrs Richards: "I’m not satisfied. But I shall stay. But I expect a reduction."
    Basil: "Why?! Because Krakatoa’s not erupting at the moment?
