It’s often been said that Wyoming’s best known lost gold mine is the Lost Cabin Mine, which, according two well-known lost mine authors, Robert Penfield and Frank J. Dobie, is located in the Big Horn Mountains in the north central part of the state.
However, three other authors, Jameson, Williams and Pepper, are equally certain that the Lost Cabin Mine is located in the Wind River Range in the western part of the state.
We’ll take a look at the latter version.
The Lost Cabin Mine in the Wind River Range was found by Tom McKeever after discovering a small stream filled with gold nuggets in 1842.
Nearby is the mother lode, a deposit exhibiting a vein of gold so pure that it needs no refining.
