    SO IS THE LOST ADAMS DIGGINGS FOUND OR NOT ?????????????????????

    I have been prospecting several years in New Mexico, having a blast. Then about 3 months ago, got hooked on the Lost Adams legend. Decided to research and look for it.
    Read the books, made the google maps, narrowed down my search area, blah blah blah.
    After reading Richard French book written in 1994, i goggled his name to see if i could find out it he was still looking.
    To my surprise up pops stories indicating that a man from Las Cruces has found the Diggings some 16 years ago, spent 12 years prospecting it, recovering relics and gold, and then 4 years writing a book with Richard French that is apparently on its way to publishers as I type.
    Major bummer i was so ready to start exploring.

    Anyway, can anyone tell me anything more about this? I have googled and googled till my fingers hurt and cant really come up with anything positive.

    Also, some ExpeditionHistory.org claims they found it and are preparing a movie and documentary etc.
    Also, a county singer claims to be offering guided trips to the diggings for a fee, keep what you find.
    Then some claim that the government siezed it all and has it sealed off cause its a Indian burial site.

    If i can get a gps on this thing i am going to go there to find out in person.

    Anybody got any info

    thanks

    rat,
    1. Lots of people have claimed to have found the Lost Adams Diggings. Nobody has provided any convincing evidence to the public. That book you mentioned has been hawked for years, but hasn't been published yet.

    2. The movie guys are scammers - ignore them.

    3. You can read all about a the Indian burial site stuff here: I have found the Lost Adams Diggings Sno-Ta-hay Canyon It'll tell you exactly where the 'site' is. Decide for yourself.

    4. Country singer? That's a new one. Sounds pretty fishy.

    There's a lot of good info here on the TreasureNet Lost Adams threads. Read some of them. Don't be discouraged by those things you posted about - lots of people are looking for attention. Good luck - if there is a LAD, maybe you'll be the one to find it.

    The last time that guy posted his claims, I asked him if he was still unable to talk about the details due to the contract eh claimed he signed with a media company. He said yes. So I asked him why he was posting a story that he couldn't talk about unless he was just advertising his own treasure hunting company. No response. And he is very internet savvy, and he knows about the threads calling him out here at T-net. Yet he never shows up to address them. If he was for real, I doubt that would be his reaction.

    Did a google on Treasureforce, watched all their vids etc. Seem to be a bunch of amature explorers exploiting treasure hunting for profit. TV profit not actual treasures.
    Their last video claims to prove the found the LAD because they have 6 or 8 prospects on a hillside, so the LAD will be just over the next ridge.
    Every mountain I have explored in NM near any mines has 6 or 8 prospects on it. It would be hard to find a mountain without 6 or 8 prospects on it.
    So my conclusion as of late is that Treasureforce is a made for TV bunch of bullshit and the LAD is still unfound. Your right on the money UncleMatt. I shall continue looking.
    Cant wait to get back to NM this winter to continue the adventure.
