The Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine

The Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine

It’s like an Oak Island spin-off! The legend about a load of gold being hidden in the mountains in Arizona with several people dying in the attempt to find it in real life. Does it even exist??

    Yeah I went looking for it too a couple years back, beautiful area but didn’t find jack. Also sadly there were no other people or “things” out there trying to keep others away from the this so called treasure. Imo it doesn’t actually exist

  2. @sheriking4041 on January 13, 2024 at 9:12 am

    I live about 25 miles from the area in the Superstition Mountains and have visited a old gold mine and the tiny ghost town (now a tourist attraction). I have lived in Arizona all my life and the desert is NOT forgiving summer or winter. Even today people die when going out not prepared. I’m not surprised that people died looking for the lost gold because they are only thinking about getting the gold not about surviving in the desert.
    I don’t think it was a mine that is lost, I think it might be a small bag of gold nuggets stashed somewhere if at all.

    I think Jacob Waltz just had a sense of humor and decided to go out having one last laugh at everybody’s expense

  5. @clintxxxracerx9435 on January 13, 2024 at 9:13 am

    Really did a lot of research! Lol

    The Caballo, refers to the Caballo Mountains

    Elpaso Del Norte, refers to Elpaso, TX ! Good work Hommie!

    He worked at Vulture mine and was just another thief. Somehow he didn’t get caught like a lot of the other miners did. Most of them were hung at the mine.

    Arizona iced teaNot made in Arizona…

  8. @TP-vu3tc on January 13, 2024 at 9:17 am

    Hikers from states like Colorado will really enjoy hiking in the Supes. during winter. Unbelievable rugged and strange looking scenery at a much lower elevation than the Rockies.

  9. @thebogangamer1 on January 13, 2024 at 9:19 am

    this mine was original my family members mine, he was the first family member to land in america.

  10. @adamupdike7838 on January 13, 2024 at 9:19 am

    The story I was told was very different then this, it included lost tribes and Spanish colonizers

  11. @mikevanwinkle5630 on January 13, 2024 at 9:21 am

    The lost Dutchman mine is nothing more than a hoax it’s just a great story to tell around campfires believe me if there was a lost Dutchman gold mine with all the thousands of people that have looked for it over the years don’t you think they would have found it by now

  12. @Ken_Scaletta on January 13, 2024 at 9:25 am

    Even if this mine existed – which it doesn’t – it would most likely be situated on private property and if it isn’t private property, it’s state property. I don’t think you’d be allowed to keep anything even if you found it. You might make some rich rancher richer, though.

  13. @bushtrash2286 on January 13, 2024 at 9:26 am

    They really should be looking at northern part of the Tortiliter mountains,, but hey what ever float their boat.

  14. @sheriking4041 on January 13, 2024 at 9:27 am

    People carry guns in Arizona, so I’m not surprised that they found bullet hole in the skulls and bodies.

  15. @Apocfetau on January 13, 2024 at 9:28 am

    After about the 4th bullet wound being dismissed one can start to think that perhaps the coroners are in on it and are covering up murders.

  16. @AnemoneSilvermyst on January 13, 2024 at 9:29 am

    Can you decode the Paulding Light in Michigan?

  17. @desertsurvival8235 on January 13, 2024 at 9:30 am

    It’s always the same with Dutch hunters
    "We found the mine"
    No or no gold. I nothing .

  19. @frankboogaard88 on January 13, 2024 at 9:34 am

    As a person from the Netherlands, I think the English word Dutchman is abusive…

  20. @frankboogaard88 on January 13, 2024 at 9:35 am

    Simon finally admitted the scammy thing…

  21. @135forte on January 13, 2024 at 9:36 am

    How is this episode not about the Superstitioun Killer, the uncaught serial killer that hunted hikers?

  22. @poletooke4691 on January 13, 2024 at 9:37 am

    Uhhhh…. Anyone else thinking that maybe that coroner is a serial killer in the mountains?

  23. @Zyo117 on January 13, 2024 at 9:37 am

    13:35 I’m gonna point out that spelling wasn’t really standardised for a lot of history.

  24. @nickmadar5078 on January 13, 2024 at 9:39 am

    I think you should cover the Los Padres mine in el paso

  25. @tobias2287 on January 13, 2024 at 9:39 am

    An interesting note: Josh Gates, yes of the History Channel iirc, actually went to find this on one of his shows. His conclusion, after consulting experts: If there was a mine, earthquakes and flooding buried it and changed the topography, making the map inaccurate and therefore the mine, if it does exist, all but impossible to find. A reasonable conclusion for a show from a notoriously non-scientific channel.

  26. @josefstrauss9017 on January 13, 2024 at 9:44 am

    22:13 sure about that? Maybe look up rapper Young Dolph‘s real name 😉

  27. @seanfahey2337 on January 13, 2024 at 9:45 am

    Arizona Iced tea started in Brooklyn Ny and is produced outside of the city now

  28. @morningtime7187 on January 13, 2024 at 9:45 am

    Sorry to bear bad news but my healthy 27 year old partner died as a result of pneumonia in the UK in hospital care. Its a lot less dangerous now than then but its not that every healthy, young person will skate through it unscathed.

  29. @vanyadolly on January 13, 2024 at 9:48 am

    The most mysterious thing about this one is why the authorities were so keen to claim suicide and accidental death with all the corpses.

  30. @eddawg79 on January 13, 2024 at 9:49 am

    There actually is no lost Dutchman mine, he was stealing from the mine he worked at and claimed he found his own mine to avoid being caught.

  31. @patrickmonks9761 on January 13, 2024 at 9:49 am

    He fell on his automatic rifle and it went of 13 times. Suicide

  32. @CourtneyTunbridge79 on January 13, 2024 at 9:49 am

    Wow some people really are gullible, if, and that is ginormous IF, then I think it’s already been long since found.
    As for the large concentration of deaths around the 1960’s well…pretty sure they might have had a serial killer who liked to shoot people.
    God there is some whacky shit in this world.

  33. @warrenlouisiana2277 on January 13, 2024 at 9:50 am

    I ama non believer in this crap

  34. @lukethomas658 on January 13, 2024 at 9:51 am

    This is one of the few stories on your channel that I think have a germ of truth. (Not those stupid, gifter stones.) Karchner Caverns is a huge cave system in this area and wasn’t discovered until the late 70s.
    Bear in the forest? This is the Sonoran Desert.

  35. @safiremorningstar on January 13, 2024 at 9:52 am

    This could be anywhere that stories told about minor finding it on reservation land or sacred land, Arizona is filled with stokes like this.

  36. @clintxxxracerx9435 on January 13, 2024 at 9:53 am

    Stones were a hoax.

  37. @891Henry on January 13, 2024 at 9:53 am

    If he had a secret mine, why was he farming and not mining?

  38. @realmaddawgie on January 13, 2024 at 9:53 am

    I’m an arizona baby!!! The superstitions is one of my favorite parts of living in the valley 🫶🏻

  39. @Lurchrip91 on January 13, 2024 at 9:55 am

    This coroner is very suspicious to me, multiple gun wounds concluded as a suicide? And all suicides? Sounds like he did it and is just putting suicide on his murders

  40. @WoodlandT on January 13, 2024 at 9:56 am

    Those Peralta stones look like art projects from students of different skill levels, like you might find from a home schooled family back in the day

  41. @shinkicker404 on January 13, 2024 at 9:56 am

    Sounds like someone needs to investigate this coroner, seems like he may be in on it lol.

  42. @ZAV1944 on January 13, 2024 at 9:57 am

    You may consider consider doing an episode covering the legend of Yamashita’s Gold, a treasure cache consisting of riches plundered by the Japanese during the Second World War and is alleged to be hidden somewhere in the Philippines.

  43. @ajdean2974 on January 13, 2024 at 9:58 am

    Ay! AAAAYYYY!!!! Ive been obsessed with your channels and i JUST found this video 😭 this is all centered right where i live

  44. @BigDudowski on January 13, 2024 at 9:59 am

    What would make you think that anyone who might have found something would have gone around telling people about it? Especially if the land was not their own.

  45. @worldserpent731 on January 13, 2024 at 9:59 am

    Admitting you’re reading from the script for the first time and continue to act dumb about the subject at hand… Yeah, that’s annoying.

  46. @realmaddawgie on January 13, 2024 at 10:00 am

    Also currently decaling Jacob Waltz whiskey bottles!! Lmao

  47. @CourierSixGaming on January 13, 2024 at 10:01 am

    I hate having to disappoint Simon, but as a native Arizonan who loves his state, I must. Arizona Iced Tea is not manufactured in Arizona, that’s just the company name. Superstition mountains are impressive, though, and we also have the Grand Canyon. if you need to find it on a map, just look for California, go to the bottom of it and it’s the state just across the squiggly boundary that represents a river.

  48. @MACandanedo1 on January 13, 2024 at 10:04 am

    I can’t remember who wrote it. Maybe? Katie, but I feel like you were set up on that oak Island script the people searching for a charger on the island now don’t like playing to any specific treasure, but a story of a treasure being buried a long time ago with which this past season they have found a tunnel and wish the wood within that tunnel has been carbonated back to the 1400s, which means at some point there was probably a bit of truth to oak Island fighting treasures or maybe an old old mine that has since been lost to history. It was a smart move on Simon’s part to put a bunch of caveats in there like they may find a treasure on the island, but it won’t be any other specific ones detailed by Katie. Last thing on the oak Island thing. The stuff you talked about in that script is nothing of the stories being told on the show, which leads me to wonder where exactly do you all do your research for any of these?

  49. @Executioner480 on January 13, 2024 at 10:04 am

    Arizona Ice Tea is made in New York 😂

  50. @brandonratzlaff65 on January 13, 2024 at 10:07 am

    Arizona, much like every word that ends in A, is not pronounced "ArizonER". Who thinks A should be read "ER"? It’s mind boggling. These words all have directions on how to pronounce them in the dictionary. When you don’t pronounce anything phonetically, your language might have developed a few problems over the last 2 centuries. In all fairness, we have a large population in the south who can’t speak English either.
