Anyone interested in looking for this?
The Comancheros also traded with other southwestern tribes for a variety of goods, some of them precious. It was rumored for many years that the Comancheros received raw diamonds in trade from the Indians who lived near the Pedernal Hills of central New Mexico. Legend places the old Indian diamond mine somewhere in the Pedernal Hills of Torrance County, New Mexico. The mine was apparently worked by the Indians for many years and has even been chanced upon by white men during its history. One account in particular is of interest because of its description of the mine portal and the vertical shaft within. The chance discovery was made by a trader from Santa Fe who was forced to take shelter from a storm somewhere on the leeward side of the old Pedernal Hills, not far from the little village of Encino. While hunkering down from the storm, the trader noticed a small opening in the sheltered side of the hill. Just inside the portal was a man made 30-foot vertical shaft. Scattered around the cave entrance were a number of transparent crystals, some of them in matrix. The trader gathered up the finest samples and put them in his pocket. When the storm finally passed the trader continued eastward, eventually reaching Independence, Missouri. It was only then that the trader learned that his crystals were actually diamonds!

As far as "'squatch" - the program is silly. But 'squatch' - Bigfoot in these parts - is real. I heard him wail a few times one night close by - right near the spot I dumped a deer carcass down in the river bottom a couple of nights before. I tell you this - ain't no human or known animal has a set of lungs this thing had - apparently he was quite happy to find some dinner. Pitch dark and he got closer but I did not wait and quickly decided I did not want to meet him. It is some sort of primate.

I enjoyed Lost Treasure Hunters mainly because it was nice to see people search for something other than gold. I will watch again.

watched the Re-run of the premier the other day.
I liked the straight forward approach with minimal drama.
But Diamonds are not on my list of "Treasure" so not sure if I'll continue to watch.

HHmmm....so let me get this straight...they obviously have this show recorded...and they are looking for a diamond mine....do you really think they will ever find it? or at least find it and tell...I sure wouldn't

They found the grading house in the first episode, a two different teams found a diamond, one on land, the other in the river from grab samples. Something tells me they are going to locate the mine very quickly. As I understand it, they are in a hurry to locate this because within the next 6 months or so the government is building a dam downstream and the entire area will be underwater very soon.
Which leads me to believe that either this series is gonna be VERY short, or the team will move on to other treasures to look for. I think that'd make for some great TV, globehopping searching for different treasures!

To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer “The True Believer”
