Also many will be finger fissures or veins coming off the main. So you will find many prospects on a hillside, but only one or two will likely be the main mine unless you are in an unusually rich area, in which case they will still mark the best one very well, and it will likely have an out of place trench to a backfilled spot that is usually hard to see and caved-in over it or covered well.

    Also you have a lot of old timer miners during the gold rush digging all over the place as well as tapping at these pinch out spots or weak mineralization spots and messing up many of the markers around looking under large marker boulders near streams for placer and such..
    OK, got it. Reason for my previous question was, because...
    , there are some mines in the area around here, but they can be seen from space
    And that's what the old timers in the area call...a mine.

    That's not to say that everything the "49's" did is still visible. Some are....some are not. We have a very powerful monsoon season and most
    slopes are drenched away en route to the wash, where they form flush floods 5-6-10 times a year which are powerful enough to lift up and carry away ANYTHING, of any weight. Absolutely deadly. (probably some on youtube)





    if I double post by mistake, is that my connectivity sucks, again. High winds & dust, promising rain

    The facts behind the factoids

    You have an open invitation to come visit (my?) the ravine and other canyons any time at your convenience and pleasure,your schedule permitting. As we speak, we may have another 2, maybe 2 months of suitable weather for playing outdoors, in my area.
    This is not a joke, but if youre considering a fun adventure, maybe we should start planning. The worst that can happen, well both end up with some great pictures, good time and great stories. As I will not try to make a believer out of you, or anybody, a little fresh air and trekking into a different world where it seems that Time stood still, should be a positive experience, regardless. Fun is almost guaranteed.
    Thank you again for allowing picture/discussion on thread. Honestly I expected no less, or would have not done it. Also, I think I got enough for now, to help some peoples interests or passion or plain curiosity, if any.

    P.S. Do you have a camper? Or RV or other ad-hoc quarters? It will come handy. (quad or side by side too,to some locations) (I have a rock-crawler)
    Thanks for the invite, but I'm committed to locating a bunch of old original mining claim corners in NM pretty for much all of March - then I'll be out of the country until well into May. That puts AZ out of the question for me until next winter at the earliest. Good luck with what you're looking for. When you find yourself in truly remote country where nobody wants to go, you have a better chance of finding things that others haven't seen.

    Dat pooch inhaling? Royalty red too. Some live better than us…commoners.
    Jimmy Durante would be the second thought, based only on honker ability and mannerism, but-but must not disregard your guy that would be my first choice of mid-eastern Royalty and facial features.
    Also, the head ware and protruded chin (similar to ancient Greek heroes) would bring him closer to ancient travelers from the Levant, than deities and Royalty of Aztec nature with roundish inner chins.
    And then,….the Lips…man. The lips look almost afro. Not your lips on the wall.
    Not all Honkers are honker worthy. Rich and powerful but they smell different.
    Incidentally, my helmet has some old Phoenician lettering that escaped most eyes, but if you apply your mag. glass on it….bingo. Also, the design of the helmet is that of a warm climate.
    Your guy, must have just taken his off. Sign of resting….at ease… (ah, Meneas)

    Who and why and dis and dat…? Remains to be seen. So, dig faster for our safety and honor.
    I bet Steve will have a feast of this m’shine talk and speculation. Art thou ready humble Sir? Me, just humble… (internet sucks)

    It's all about the Thrill of the Chase, not really looking for the big time worldly comforts. Questions need answers, even with some hick-ups on and off. Thank you for your candor.

    There is "stuff" out there that is Inexplicable,....

    And then is Cryptozoology. I'm afraid to even mention that. (from fear of being labeled as Chupacabra believer)

    Gee, good ideal Maverick1. I never thought of summer and winter head wear. I seen that symbol on the helmet, but had no ideal of who used it.

    It seems that it's only you and me, dear. We were left by our lonesome task to dig it. lol

    ok, now serious,....Like I said before,....the more you look....the more you ...see ancient mariners . This is not your first hebrew/phoenician lettering and symbols. Neither mine to wonder about. Hey, when you live close to waterways, it happens.... to see water people. Some old, some new.


    But, what is that...behind your hidden black heart, onto right. Someone lost something that could protect him? You got the better view.

    It looks like a jelly fish, but it ain't
    It has chain-link hanging just right to cover what's left of the skull

    Told you he lost it. at 1 o'clock. It's a heart matter.
