The Lost Lemon Gold Mine, Alberta, Canada

We haven't been able to track down a great deal of information on this story yet, but it certainly sounds intriguing.

Some time around 1870 American prospectors searching for gold in the Alberta Rockies are supposed to have discovered a rich vein somewhere near the town of Coleman in the Crowsnest Pass area.

The southern area of the province of Alberta is not thought to have naturally occurring gold in exploitable quantities, unlike British Columbia to the west, which makes this treasure tale even more interesting to us.

Check out the links below for further information, they are the best sources we have come across so far. The second link, a video clip from CBC Edmonton News is particularly interesting, but if you have more information about the Lost Lemon Mine please email me or visit the Lost Mines, Caves & Tunnels forum
