I have always believed that the Lost Dutchman's Mine legend was the father of the Lost Creek Mine of Pitt Lake legend...
Have a look at the names of the two key players in the stories:
JACob WALtz finder of Lost Dutchman's mine
WALter JACkson finder of the Lost Creek mine
Look close at the two names... and

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.
