    This come from the same ore I posted, That paper it's on is a standard size 8.5x 11 copy paper.
    12.4 oz just got back 10 days ago with about 600 pounds of ore to bust up yet.

    Here's to not believing I guess. And it's not in California white Quarts.

    Well a lot of it looks like 10K and below, but the bigger nuggets look more like 14K to 18K. Not bad though. Good work.

    Poor attempt to dodge a simple question, so since you can't be bothered to give an honest answer, I can't be bothered to tell you where to look for the ore comparison. Find it yourself.

    Babymick congratulations on your great gold mine, hope you are making millions. I don't understand why you bother trying to get me to believe that you have the LDM, when you have no respect for my word on anything anyway. Besides, the only opinion that matters is your own right? And since you are rolling in gold, does it even matter what name your mine is called?

    My word doesn't carry that much weight Mick, it won't even get you a cold beer at Captain's in AJ. And even if I stared at your photos under a microscope and compared them to the photos of the famous matchbox, the cuff links etc, I am not a geologist - I could be fooled. Oh I have learned some of geology over the years but am still very much a student, you would be better off to get a real geologist to do an ore comparison, if you were really serious about wanting to PROVE that you have found the Lost Dutchman's gold mine. If you can convince guys like Tom Kollenborn, Clay Wurst and Bob Corbin that your mine is the LDM, that will carry a LOT of weight. But you are wasting your time on me. My blessing won't get you anywhere.

    I will tell you this - check your own assays, if they are coming out similar to the one done by Joe Porterie, you are possibly in the ballpark. That won't seal the deal but it would help your case. Look for a high gold to silver ratio - if there is a LOT of silver to the amount of gold, then chances are your gold is not coming from the Lost Dutchman mine. It should be in the range of 300 to 1, that is at least 300 ounces of gold to 1 ounce of silver. Not specifically 300 oz per ton AU, that RATIO is important to keep in mind. More silver than that is pointing to a different type of gold deposit entirely.

    Good luck and good hunting to you all, I hope you find the treasures that you seek.

    i'd say the first lesson mick needs to learn is how to tell the difference between lode gold and placer gold..the pic he posted is definitely placer gold

    Maybe that's the result of a " first hand " pan from 600 pounds of dust .

    There are many doors in and out of the mnts,but none so hidden as the ones in front of you.
    Do you possess the knowledge of the spirit to let you enter them? NP

    The truth is the truth,no matter how you look at it,and in every treasure story and legend there is a grain of truth . It's up to your spirit and heart to know the difference. NP

    Truer words were never spoken!

    If I ever find the LDM, when I file the claim I'm naming it the 'Pink Bunny Slippers' mine

    Nice find! Gratz!

    Could you please post a pic of the ore before you bust it up? Thanks

    As far as I can tell, most of the "Lost Mines" have been found since 1890, but got different names as the finders did not know about the "Lost Mine/Diggings". I fully believe that when/if the LDM is found, it will also turn out to be the grave site of Weisner. Silly me I believe the story I read back in 1963 at the Florence Women's Club Library. Watlz put the remains of Weisner into the shaft they had started and then put lugs over it and covered it with dirt. That also meshes with the story he told about covering his Mine with logs and then dirt, that I didn't hear until on the Forum here. Am I correct? No Idea that is why I always thought that Waltzer was the one to back track and try to run down for his mine. Just my 2 cents.

    What ever Dave,

    You saw the Ore it's not a load, it's easy busted apart and the gold falls out. It's called cobbing Dave, for a guy that claims he was in the mining industry your knowledge is better used in a Tool shed, then in practice.

    To many things you say tells me your not what you say most of the time.

    mick...at least i don't paint 2x4's with gold spray paint and try to pass them off as gold bars...that pile of gold you posted is worn and rounded like placer gold after it has traveled down a stream for quite a ways....i've crushed many gold bearing rocks and seen alot of gold come out of them but i've never seen gold come directly from a rock rounded and weathered...and you didn't either...that gold you posted is definitely placer gold..and if you are a lapidary like you say...no lapidary would crush jewelry rock up for the gold...it's worth 10 times as much for lapidary..may as well fess up mick...we got you this time...where did you steal that pic?...lol
