    They're talking about this river of gold underneath Nevada, about 3,500 feet underground. They want to find it.

    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.
    ..not all who wander are lost.

    Sounds like gold in a pan. Would it not... being heavier eventually be sucked out with the tides as gold sinks. Great story.

    Also,

    The underground river beneath Kokoweef Peak is about one mile below the surface. Two thousand feet through the caves, and the main chamber is about three thousand feet high. Anybody that wants to know more about Kokoweef Peak should ask LVBob (TNet Name). He has been part of the team drilling at Kokoweef Peak since about 1986.

    Hey Mike!

    Do you know if they found anything? You ever tried searching? I understand that the one opening was blown by dynamite decades ago by that guy who found the opening originally. But that there may be at least one more opening?

    I heard about that drilling team. Aren't they still looking and still have not found it? That is the word I heard about it.

    CP,

    They have drilled for a long time now. I haven't kept up with the latest, that's why I referred folks to LVBOB. He is actually part of that crew for a long time, and would have most of the answers y'all seek.

    I take it you don't have an interest in trying to find another opening?

    There are a million openings in the mountains around Kokoweef.

    Here is a link to the Official Kokoweef Site:

    KOKOWEEF.COM

    I haven't done as much research on this story as I probably should have (because I believe it is an authentic story). A good buddy of mine got to know Earl Dorr's Nephew (I think) that lives in Colorado. He saw the gold that came from under Kokoweef and firmly believes in the story.

    Much thanks! Yeah, I went to the site in the past. I also PM LVBob, which was really good.

    I suppose there are many openings. But do any lead to the river 3K feet below?
    If the story is real, you don't care to try and discover the gold?

    The mountains around Kokoweef have been beaten up for a long time. Chunks are under claim. I don't really know why, but I just haven't spent a whole lot of time in those mountains looking. I have spent a decent amount of time researching the story, but this one just never grabbed me by the sack like Victorio Peak, Tumacacori, or the LDM.

    Mike
    Tumacacori is a good lead. Do you have good evidence gathered? This is my current project, and I think I have some additional good info gathered so far.

    If you knew someone that had good info, and may know where it is located, would you go searching with them?
