    Kokoweef for sale??

    I noticed a "FOR SALE" ad for Kokoweef in the classifieds of ICMJ.? July issue page 56.? I didn't think it could be the actual famous claim, but it mentions a potential cave entrance and they are asking $2.5 mil.? Does this mean they are actually giving up on looking for the cavern and are trying to cash out?? I'm not sure because, today in Riverside County's Press Enterprise there was a huge article on the mining operations at Kokoweef and the people who are running it.? From the article it sounds like they have no intentions of giving up and are in it for the long haul.? Now, I think someone is just trying to cash in on the name. ? ?
    Is that a jewel encrusted bottle cap?

    The Press Enterprise wants $2.95 to access the article.? Here is the link so you can at least get to the beginning of the article.? Unfortunately it looks like you'll have to type in the last part.? I don't know why it wasn't included.

    http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives?p_product=RS&p_theme=rs&p_action=search&p _maxdocs=200&p_field_label-0=Source&p_text_label-0=enterprise&s_dispstring=kokoweef%20AND%20publica tion(enterprise)%20AND%20date(last%20180%20days)&p _field_date-0=YMD_date&p_params_date-0=date:B,E&p_text_date-0=-180qzD&p_field_advanced-0=&p_text_advanced-0=("kokoweef")&p_perpage=10&p_sort=YMD_date&xcal_useweights=no

    If you are in Riverside County I would try the local library.? Sometimes they keep back issues of newspapers.

    Let us know what you find out!? ?
    From what I gather, Years ago, Doerr's Partners discovered a rich lode of Zinc while searching for the entrance..
    And! Have been mining it ever since!
    Doerr got disgusted? ? and left them!
    He never found "The" (another way in) entrance!
    Although, he said that he saw? ?? several? openings above him, when they were walking around down there, with his Engineer Buddy!!? ?
    I have some actual drawings (copies) by the Engineer, of the cavern and with depths & etc, around someplace!
