    Moesia, well I'm not done yet and one assay is a good indicator but more assay's are needed, but there's a perspective I'm following here. It's quite possible that this site I found is just waste rock from a old mine or waste rock from a old spanish arrasta or something like that. I've got one really good example that I found with my metal detector that's in solid quartz which leads me to believe that, that is the main lode I'm a looking for. Now it's very true that there is old spanish mines here which has been concealed since they vacated California after the Mexicans took over (1821 to 1830) and although afterwards the Mexicans did mine in here as well (until about 1848) they are not responsible for all of the Old Spanish Rock Monuments (of which are many on the claim and outlying areas). There's many facets to trying to unravel where these Lost Mines are and to find them a guy has to prospect all of the possibilities. I was happy to see the gold and silver numbers go up, as far as the platinum is concerned, the Old Spanish didn't like or fool with the "platina", it was a hinderance, but they probably never went beyond separating it from the gold and silver. I'll post a few pic's of these spanish monuments for you all...I'm fairly positive now that I can make those Platinum numbers go up, there's a uplift not to far away from here that I found years ago that I confused with it being a black sand bed but now am more convinced than ever that it's something else, I have a assay for that just for Gold & Silver from Reed Laboratories and it was Positive though the numbers were low. So don't be too confused, (hee,hee), it's a Hunt to find Old Lost Spanish Gold Mines and they were Very Good with their Geology too. Spanish Monuments....Hearts mean = GOLD , Turtles mean = Mines or Treasure or Both (a Directional Monument), X's mean = Trail Markers, Indian Heads, Faces mean = The Royal Trail, ....I'm on other Threads here as well with a lot of this stuff, so don't be confused with thatClick image for larger version.

    Found a good Chunk of what appears to be Platinum yesterday, sings pretty good on the old detector, did my usual tests and the hydrogen peroxide fizz test, found it digging deeper on down at the site....Click image for larger version.
