The Lost Silver Mine of Heavener

by | Aug 7, 2017 | Treasure Stories | 0 comments

A lost silver mine awaits rediscovery a few miles south of Heavener, somewhere in Round Mountain. It is believed that this mine was worked by the Spanish and that a hoard of silver is still hidden nearby.

Round Mountain, so named for the cap on its top, is about two miles long and runs from east to west. Approximately three-quarters of the way up the north side, a shelf or bench circles part of the mountain. Somewhere along the flat wall of this shelf is where an ancient silver mine is thought to be. This mine has had very little searching done for it, which would make it a good place to check with a metal detector.
