    There is a Nevada legend sometimes called “Riley Hatfield’s Lost Gold Mine” that is similar to other “river of gold” legends. He claimed, in 1901, that he found a dry lake bed while camped below Clark Peak on his way to Searchlight, NV. While walking around the lake bed, he spotted a cave entrance on the east side of a small limestone hill, about fifty feet above the dry lake. The entrance led to a long tunnel, and he could hear running water as he entered. Lighting the cave with his lantern, he entered a grand chamber, with a dome-shaped ceiling that was encrusted with beautiful stalactites, hanging down from the ceiling. The chamber held a pool of churning water. He also saw skeletons nearby, one human and an animal skeleton that he did not recognize. While he was standing there, he said a whirlpool started to form in the middle of large basin of water. Suddenly, he said it was as though the bottom dropped out of the cave and all of the water was sucked away. As the water receded and emptied the basin, he saw terraces of black sand lining its walls, the black sand settling down in an endless movement to the bottom of the pool. He took some of the black sand and examined it. It was filled with gold! He observed that the water in the cavern reflected the ebb and flow of the tides in the Pacific, becoming active twice each day. When the water returns to the cavern, it is with intense agitation that a giant plume of black sand rises up, followed by a column of water that reaches a height of 45 or 50 feet. The water continues to churn and agitate against the terraces until the basin is again full. The water eventually settles to a calm and glassy pond. But Earl Dorr's Kokoweef is said to be on Kokoweef Peak, in California, about 30 miles west.
    I don’t think there is much doubt about Kokoweef’s credibility… and I think that the Nevada legend 30 miles east is connected. John D. Mitchell, well known author and prospector, met Riley Hatfield in 1901, in the mining camp of Crescent. He described Hatfield as a bearded “old timer” from North Carolina. Hatfield was not well and was on his way to Searchlight to see his doctor. They met up again in Searchlight and traveled together back to Crescent. That is when Hatfield told Mitchell about the underground river of gold he had discovered. According to Mitchell, Hatfield asked him to be his partner in the find. Mitchell said that he agreed to meet up with him in three weeks, to begin exploring the cavern. He never saw Hatfield again, but believed that it may have been Hatfield’s body that was found on the dry lakebed at Ivanpah, shot and killed. Hatfield had said that he found the cave on the east side of a small limestone hill, about fifty feet above the lake bed, northeast of the town of Nipton, California.

    Copperpot,

    I already have everything available to the public, and a crap-ton that is not. I have a very good idea of exactly where it MAY be. I have a good friend that lives year round in Tumacacori. He told me it is currently too dangerous to spend much time out in those mountains. The only people there are Border Patrol, Drug Mules, and American Bandits that rob the drug mules. At the confluence of Peck and Javelina Canyons is where Border Patrol Officer Bryan Terry was murdered in the gunfight with the Mexicans carrying those "Fast and Furious" illegally bought weapons.

    I won't go out there till things cool down a bit. Too many other places to go without worrying about getting into a gunfight.

    @Mike - I don't foresee that type of activity dying out any time soon.

    What if this person felt they knew where the treasure was located, and it was a 90% chance that the info was correct. Would you risk it and go for it?
