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.

    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.

    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)

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

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

    Talk about a anti religious BS video…

    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 β€œwhere did these rabbits come from?” Finds mine. Also the rockslide was most likely man made by Indians to cover its entrance. Concealing it

    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 πŸ™πŸ•ŠπŸ’« 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 AllπŸ™β€πŸ•ŠπŸ’«
