Filmmakers search for Montezuma's treasure in Kanab pond
For 100 years, locals have believed Montezuma’s treasure lies at the end of a tunnel below Three Lakes pond in Kanab, Utah. Now, filmmakers hope to discover just what is there. Producer Mike Wiest along with landowner Lon Child and a crew of filmmakers are setting out to tell the story of Three Lakes, Montezuma and the treasure hunters whose attempts of recovering the gold have been foiled.

Freddy Crystal was a bedraggled prospector who apparently had very little luck with any actual prospecting. He showed up in the town of Kanab in 1914 looking for a grubstake. Crystal had just returned from Mexico with a drawing of some Aztec petroglyphs, which, if he was able to find, would lead him to Montezuma's treasure. He found a well to do rancher named Oscar Robison. He told Robison the tale of the infamous treasure. $10,000,000 worth of gold bars, shields, plates and pendants lined with emeralds and rubies. In the end Robison agreed to stake him.
