Victims of "The Curse"

Over time some magical numbers have turned up about the number of people who died or disappeared looking for that mysterious gold of Pitt Lake. Early newspapers mention around 20 victims. In reality only five people are known  to have died or disappeared looking for the treasure and whose names are duly reported by the press. 

1910 - George Blake (54) of Coquitlam and his son  George (20). They were crushed to death under a tree stump "4 miles beyond end of Pitt Lake, west side." The accident happened in May or June and their remains were recovered in October of that year. 

1932 -- Robert Allen "Volcanic" Brown (86) disappeared in an exceptionally heavy snowstorm.

1951 –  Prospector Alfred Gaspard (60) disappeared. 

1961 – Lewis Earl  Hasbro (49) a mechanical engineer from Bremerton, Washington, died of a heart attack "12 miles north of Widgeon Lake." He had a previous heart attack.

One theory -- look underwater.

Hello I’ve been a gold seeker since a young youth. I’ve read some books on Slumach Gold and have read a story about the missing women.
I read in one book that the women had used a bellows to pump air so that he could breath air when he dived down to get the gold. 
The gold that couldnt be found is under water somewhere perhaps under a waterfall or under a body of water I think. 
This is my theory of the myth of the Slumach Gold
