    My Az Lost mine lead needs investigation

    North of Wickenburg, travel Hassayanpa. In 2004 I uncovered a hidden adit/mine entrance, believed to be a lost rich Gold mine. I couldn't enter at that time. I'm offering 50% of nothing to an honest prospectors whom will investigate it for me. Video documentation of surrounding area, types of rocks and minerals, and entry of mine leading to sampling and possible values recovery is important. I have a map and gps coordinates, the section is claimable and was open, the last time I checked. Anyone interested?

    You understand this is one of THE most explored and prospected areas in Arizona, and that your "discovery" has been found and re-found hundreds of times? We have been playing in this area since I was 5-years old. There is NOTHING between Wickenburg and Prescott, left "undiscovered."

    It's still hidden, that's what makes it a lost Gold mine.

    You should go check it out, 50%. The 2 track is washed out, and it borders Hassayampa no mine zone. It can be climbed to..

    You aren't by chance related to RogerRantz? Calm down everyone, just a bit of levity.

    In all seriousness, any pictures of the entrance?

    No pics, except from above, cant see anything. When first discovered we thought we were on a tailing pile. The ground was all extremely vuggy dark colorful quartz, all around. Not knowing minerals I only saw quartz and colors. The entrance was small covered in rocks, next to all this quartz.

    In 1890 the Walnut grove dam broke and the water rushed down and washed out the mining town at fool's canyon. Over 100 miners perished at 2 am. This mine is a short walking distance from there. The fact that it was covered up hidden,also makes it a candidate for a listed lost rich gold mine near there..

    Just to clarify, you were physically at the mine entrance? And no one in your team took any pictures?

    By "above" pictures, do you mean Google Earth?

    If you were personally at the mine entrance, did you go into the mine, even for a short distance?

    I spotted the hidden entrance, rocks piled up concealing a 4 ft opening. Didnt have any camera nor flashlight nor gloves, was just out observing. Cactus needles prevented me from crawl entry. And it was a sunny day, we couldn't see 2 ft in even shading our eyes. Planned on returning, when I did I had lost it. I refound it on google earth years later.

    I didnt know anything about mining or ore way back then. I watched many vids about it and learned much. But still haven't seen anyone post similar vuggy quartz like this has. It is also surrounded by other rich Gold mines in the area. Octave, O'Brian, Vulture. It definitely has a lot of hydrothermal activity associated with it.

    Ok, so we haven't been inside the mine at all, so we have no way of verifying anything inside the mine itself. Which means no gold has been found, no deposits seen and no samples taken or tested from inside the mine.

    On what do you base that it is believed to be a "Rich Gold Mine"? Based upon your above statements, you have absolutely no proof this is anything more then 1 of tens of thousands of abandoned mines in the area.

    Respectfully, In order to get anyone to go in 50/50 with you on anything, you're going to have to put time aside to make another trip to the mine, document and map the inside of the mine, take and test samples and then, assuming sufficient gold ore is found in those samples, you can perhaps approach some investors and acquire a partner.

    No I dont have any proof anything of values is in the mine. I'm going on questionable possibilities. Why cover an entrance other than to hide something. The nearby working miners perished. Its between Wickenburg and Peoples valley. A lost mine legend points there. I posted this assuming someone that lives in the area would be interested and check it out. It's not a big deal. If I lived 10 miles from supposed riches and someone offered 50% of possible wealth, i would go check it out. I would rather see for myself, only my treasure hunting schedule is getting booked up. I dont see making it till 2022.

    Treasure leads are a dime a dozen for me. There's one spot on Antelope creek near Stanton that has some values, just 1 spot in that whole Gold creek. There's a spot off Rincon rd, about a mile N of Wickenburg, which needs rechecking. It was claim marked when I discovered it, left without sampling. It was an old deteriorated claim posting, probably expired. Doubt the claim owner has a clue what's really their. They might not have the proof and facts most people need to believe, but they truly are legitimate leads. I have many self created leads. Just trying to pass some on. When I do show back up in the area, if anyone wants to join me on the exploration let me know.
