    Lost Gold after 1883 Stage Hold-up

    For anyone looking for treasure in that area, this is one of many...they recovered the silver, but the gold was "lost"...to my knowledge, it was never recovered....

    Do a little research online to find out the property owner its not that hard. Obviously, you have access to a computer and the internet. Just takes a little time and its something to do when you cannot get outside to do stuff.

    It belongs to a large mining company...Freeport, I believe... they own everything out there. It had a road to it at one time, but, it's long washed out now.

    It was Geronimo's Golden Pizza at one time I think.

    Before that it was Manji's Hole in the Ground Bar and Grill!

    BLM...ARPA probably applies, as well as needing a treasure trove permit to dig up anything on fed lands...that's why a lot of people don't bother trying to do the right thing, all you get in the end is trouble...the laws and regulations need to be changed so T Hunters get some kind of reward and anything valuable from an historical perspective can be preserved...

    Stage Coach road runs through on an easterly ridge across dripping springs canyon. I've been on it very scary skinny road up high for protection from the Apache. I followed it for a bit.

    Usually if you see a hole it was empty before it was dug. Metal Detecting isn't easy it takes a lot of skill. You have to dig every target if you want any rewards at all.

    One law supersedes all other laws.

    It's SSS.

    Secure, Shovel and Silence.

    In other words, Finders Keepers

    Kane springs eh?

    You know how those robber stories are. You could be looking for that old cactus stump literally forever.

    I heard it was modernized and a mining company used it in the area. This would explain why it looks newer. But an old man that lives near there swears it was once a Hacienda and Mission or Rancheria Vista.
