Northern British Columbia Leads.

In February of 1943, a Douglas C-49 took off from Fort Nelson, British Columbia on a flight to Fort Simpson. It reportedly carried eleven passengers and crew and an army payroll of $200,000 in United States currency and 400 pounds of gold bullion. On September 22, 1948, the wreckage was found near Fort Nelson high above Tuchodi Lake where it hit the mountainside with great force, disintegrated, scattered and burned for over a mile. Much of the debris was buried four to six feet under rockslides and although eleven bodies were recovered, there was no record of the missing cargo.

Several cedar boxes, each containing $10,000 in gold were secreted in several various caches in the 1920s by Arthur Wilson a self-proclaimed messiah on DeCourcy Island.

A wide variety of relics and little treasures can be unearthed at Cumberland's Chinatown, the lost ghost town located on Vancouver Island, 140 miles north of Victoria. 3,000 oriental miners once lived in this bustling coal mining community four miles from Royston and much treasure remains to be found here. 1,200 cases of liquor packed in salmon cases remain hidden near Long Beach on Vancouver Island's lonely west coast. Somewhere near the headwaters of the San Juan River on Vancouver Island is an immensely rich ledge of almost pure gold. It was discovered -- and lost -- in the 1880s. A lost Spanish mine containing raw gold and crude ingots of pure gold is located in the area between Leech town and Jordan Meadows at the foot of the huge rock bluffs. The site is somewhere along a shorter route than the regular trail on ground that isn't very steep; the opening almost horizontal. It's among heavy undergrowth and a substantial distance from Leech town. It is also said to be in the high country overlooking Jordan Meadows. $10,000 in gold coins in a knee-high leather boot, covered by an inverted frying pan under eighteen inches of soil was buried 150 yards or feet, or 25 yards or feet northwest from the northwest corner of the largest house in Leech town .

In 1872 "Rattlesnake" thingy Barters' gang held up a mule train and escaped with $80,000, half of which has never been found. It is supposedly buried along the salal-covered ruins of the old Leechtown Gold Camp 20 miles northwest of Victoria. . Many treasure ships have gone down at Race Rocks near Victoria. Some gold coins have been found in this area. . Within an hours' drive of Victoria along the rocky banks of South Vancouver Island's Koksilah River is the location of Bill Irvine's silver mine, discovered and lost around 1908. . The ancient Chilcotin Indians obtained melted gold by heating some kind of rock which was found in a valley in the area of Bella Coola. At the confluence of the Thompson and Fraser Rivers, three railroad cars derailed and plunged into the river canyon. The cargo aboard supposedly contained gold bullion and was heavily insured, but in order to present a claim, the railroad must give the insurance company the plates bearing the serial numbers of the lost cars. The railroad will give a reward of $1,000,000 for the recovered plates.
