    I suppose it's placer of some sort, it's crushed between layers of Quarts but not in the host rock. The little pebbles are pressed in there to. But that's a pile exactly how it falls out when you hammer it. Never been panned.

    Dave, I gave you the Clue to it before, Waltz never had any gold ore, thus that would make the Know Dutchman ore a fabrication and the Matchbox. The early accounts of the Dutchman's gold was large nuggets to flakes. Here is your way to find out how big they were. I told you there on a 8 x 11 sheet of paper. Print the photo out in color on your home computer select edge to edge of page place standard 8x11 paper in printer and press print. That will give you approximent size of the gold in photo.

    mick...me and anyone else that is a miner on this forum knows that is placer gold...it is also dirty gold (gold alloyed with alot of copper)..hence the dark color...i have seen alot of gold that came out of the supers and it was all a brilliant gold color..i've never seen any from the supers dark with copper...i do have some gold that came from copperopolis (n.w. of lake pleasant) that is dark..but i have never seen dark gold come from the supers

    Yeah, I never denied it wasn't placer gold, Dave, Or that it was pure gold and it did come from a highly copper region Dave. Matter of fact there's millions of tons of copper there. But you only know of the copper region cause someone told you Dave. Copper mines in the area I don't. But the point is if you were in the supers as much as you say. You walked over tons of it and didn't even know. I can tell you what's in the ground by flipping over a stone that's been there along time. Just because the tops of Stones look pretty much the same the bottom is the history to the ground as the top is to the elements. That's the first rule to a gemologist. Ask Frank I'm sure he'll take ya.

    Wrmickel1 River in January are the black rocks on the mesa tops in the mountains, Caused by the intense sun reacting to the organic material in the rock. When it rains they look like a river, Thus That Maps say RIO

    not that i understood a word you wrote .....but there are quite a few copper mines in the supers but none rich enough to darken the gold..the old wasp mine was found on a blue stained rock...copper ore..but the gold was bright gold..and speaking of frank..the gold he found in the supers was bright colored gold too..if you look back through his old posts you will see pics of it....come on mick..fess up..you got that pic online somewhere

    Whole lot of typing. Not much treasure. To find the real treasure of the LDM, look in Apache Junction.

    Regarding treasure in Apache Junction, I finally got around to watching one of the "Lost Gold" shows that the Feldman brothers have going on the Travel Channel. I usually can't stand treasure shows because of all the fake drama, fighting, and general BS that someone in the TV industry thinks people want to watch. Maybe younger folks like that stuff, but I have no time for it.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this new show. No fighting, no drama, just two laid-back AZ brothers doing normal treasure hunter stuff. So yes, I think there's treasure in AJ, in these two young men who have obviously been raised properly and have finally put on a treasure show that's actually watchable. Kinda proud of 'em.

    Of course you don't understand, That's the point your a placer miner. A Tin Pan!
    Heres one alittle more Goldie for you. One that might play into the Matchbox not to far from the other Mine but can't be seen from the other. A clue that Waltz used.
