Authorities Search for Lost Treasure Hunters
August 2010 by Associated PressRescue workers were searching a rugged Arizona wilderness area in triple-digit temperatures for three Utah men who went missing on July 11, while looking for the legendary Lost Dutchman Gold Mine.
The Reynolds gold mine is located approximately 6 miles northeast of the town of Troy, North Carolina, the county seat of Montgomery County.

Early work was apparently confined to a number of quartz veins that traverse the property in a northeasterly direction.
