    Re: Old Camp Grant

    IF its a day trip, I could probably make it! Hopefully you are going during late fall/early winter. I hate snakes and have seen plenty out already. Is the Eskimozine mine the same as the Lost Yuma mine?

    Have you heard of the crystal cave? Also near Dudleyville, was told its on private property, but I didn't see any signage on my way there. Its near the gypsum mines and was filled in at one time from flooding, but it is opening up again. I've crawled in it a few times, not much room right now. The opening has a huge chunck of white gypsum. I was told when my father was little and in the boy scouts they use to go camping there, and you could actually use a boat to cross it.

    Just some FYI stuff.

    EPPA:
    It is probably the same "Mine"!
    I, Used the word "mine" for the lack of a better "term"
    As we all know the indians did not "mine ", as we know it, for anything.
    This "Mine" is actually, an exposed "rose" quartz vein, with pure gold running
    thru it
    It "assayed" @ $67,000/ton (as per Lt. C.'s assay")
    AND!
    Doc & I, will be flying over the area this year sometime
    To see if we can locate anything useful w/o ALL! of that LEG WORK!

    Re: Old Camp Grant

    I am not sure about the cave above Superior. I have only been told about this one, and have gone into this one near Dudleyville. But its always a possibility theres another Crystal cave around!

    Re: Old Camp Grant

    Well, since the cave near Dudleyville is next to the Gypsum mines, there are all kinds of Gyspum crystals. I got a nice specimen from there. Most are just slivers of crystal (very thin and break easy), and some are just chunks of white gypsum.
