    Re: Swift silver mine (KY)

    There were upper and lower mines.....they had to be connected, Swift says they were...probably used the trail you are talking about - at least a part of it. I have always said we need a master map, and have it on a special site, everyone put what they found on it and where ever there was the largest concentration of finds that will be the area to start at. With 4 or 5 people we could cover a lot of ground and do a lot of research. But unless Swift was talking code the mines have to be west of the forks of the Big Sandy not south...maybe a little North or South but mostly west.

    With everyone looking in diffrent parts of Ky something will have to turn up sooner or later... maybe the best find is yet or maybe years to come, but im sure something will be found..

Now, most of these stories could be legend, but there is alot of indications that the Swift Silver Mines Are REAL. In my opinion, they are, and there in south east KY.
    I am also looking into a large SINKHOLE that is said to possibly be a meteorite crater. If this is true, or not, I am going to detect it soon..
    Let me know what your thoughts are on a location for the swift silver mines. I am going to take a road trip soon and do some exploring and detecting...
    sincerely wes
    This looks like it could be the town of Middlesborro Kentucky.

    Anyway, I am looking for info about the Swift Mine myself. I am hearing the mountains surrounding Middlesborro is filled with all sorts of gems and stuff, probably from the Meteor strike years ago..

    Did you ever obtain a copy of Swift's Journal that he was supposed to have wrote prior to him going blind and not being able to return to mine his silver that he walled up in a cave somewhere (possibly in Kentucky)?

    I am trying to find a copy of the journal is why I am asking..

    I don't have a copy of the journal, but I think some of the guys here do.

    Some 30-40 different versions of the journal have been identified. Not one of them match each other. Most are probably forgeries, unless Swift was going senile when he was writing them to pay his way to re-find the mines.
