    What about this document link talking about the Los Padres Mine?

    http://www.conservation.ca.gov/omr/a...esentation.pdf

    Is this completely different?
    There has been a lot of work to restrict and gain access by the state.

    I met and talked with Mark, he is the son of Bill Mendenhall who first took me to the the Indian cave that he had dug out for a place to set off to the Mines behind RedRock. Bill told me how to get there, after a bad motorcycle accident and he was then confined to a wheel chair for the rest of his life. (he passed away in Kernville in 2007 I believe) I have pictures and some maps. The story is pretty interesting, and I have shared most of it with David Swift on another site.

    I hope you still follow this thread. Please I mean NO disrespect. This is the truth, My Father did find the mine.! Don't ever doubt it. Secondly, there are / were only a few then and less now who knew. Mark was not nor is not one! My dad did not raise him. My dad did not have a relationship with Mark. He knows only what he has read and possibly heard by trying to be a Mendenhall. It takes more then having the last name to be Bills legacy. The closest Mark ever got was the handful of times he met me. But, The ego and image is all he cares about. I know and lived every detail of my dads life until he died. Right Wrong or Otherwise. I miss him terribly. I have a lifetime of memories that play back about this mine. I have pics and artifacts. I have my dads written words. Marks has a lifetime to wish he made an effort instead of BS' ing, what can I get for nothing, living on the coattails of someone you never knew unless you thought it was going to get you something. I would love to talk to anyone (not about Mark) but about the mine, about the history, what my dad did, found and him. I'm the one. I'm it. I am Bill Mendenhall's legacy. I have the answers, the storys the names the proof! And I miss my dad, So it is so cool knowing people still talk about what he accomplished! Respect to All.

    Hey King,
    Are you still around? I could find that foundation in a heartbeat with a few clues as I live in the area and like exploring around there.
    Anyone else?
