  1. Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    No gold up where? Sheeps? Nothing but gold(sulphides)/copper there. Almost the entire range was under claim at several points in history. It just takes a crap-ton of digging brass, lead, bottle caps, pull tabs, and old cans. Occasionally a modern coin or two. Once even found someone's house key...
  2. Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    Bridle Bells, Buttons, and pieces of riding tack can be found with a metal detector. We did. There is an old trail along the South Side of that same canyon. Its monumented. There is a square sighting hole (with a pointer inside) that shows a once hidden cave/shaft/prospect. From there, every...
  3. Victorio Peak Documents, Symbols and Artifacts

    Hey Kentuck, Yeah, I didn't talk about it, but when Capt Fiege and AFC Berlette found the cave under VP, they were with a Civilian Dispatcher named "SHRIVER". I wondered whether he was a relative of the Kennedy's. Mike
  4. The Pearl Ship

    HAHAHA Margot wondered why you didn't let her know how you liked the book. She doesn't sell to many people (not a money thing). Since most of the monuments are sacred to the Seri, or play important roles in their history, she doesn't like to advertise locations. Also, many people have blended...
  5. Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    GT, If you haven't found traces of Spaniards, then you haven't been looking very hard. LOL There were several Spanish/Mexican Mines, but they have all been reopened and worked first in the 1880s, then again during the Depression in the 1930s. Take Highway 62 out of 29 Stumps to Amboy Road. Head...
  6. "Challenge For Superstition Gold"

    Hey Doc, The 3 Buttes you are referring to are Borrego Mountain East Butte, Borrego Mountain, and Borrego Mountain West Butte. A crap-ton of people (myself included) have been all over those three peaks as they are easily accessible. If you go to the NorthWest edge of West Peak, you can find a...
  7. Montezumas Treasuire: An Essay

    Marius, Sorry, but we have to part ways here. LOL Yes, that is a portion of the Codex Boturini, but your translation is COMPLETELY wrong. First: What you have noted as a "Double-Edged Dagger" is actually the year "1 Flint" in the Aztec Calendar: "One Flint" is the first year of the...
  8. Cursum Perficio Map or the Abe Reid Map

    Ka-knickers and Buzzard, Many years ago, I translated both the Latin Heart and Cursum Perficio. Ocean Child email doesn't work. Email me, please. It is either a fake, or it describes landmarks. Only two options to me. Buzzard, When I get home from work, I'll shoot you an email about this. It...

    That "shaft" is the Mammoth Mine. The Feldman's own it now. Mike
  10. P. C. Bicknell -- "A Rock Cabin in a Cave"

    I thought someone had answered your question, but I guess not. It refers to the "Four Peaks Wilderness Area". The Four Peaks is/was a well known landmark. Just search for "Four Peaks Wilderness" on Google Earth. Its a ways to the North of the Superstitions. The clue says that when you are at...
  11. P. C. Bicknell -- "A Rock Cabin in a Cave"

    LOL Its not out-of-staters that are the problem Its people that think they know everything (but don't), and tear up things they don't understand trying to find something that might not even exist! Mike
  12. "Challenge For Superstition Gold"

    BB, The Apache/NDeh never destroyed anything like that. Native Americans don't even like to talk about older civilizations, much less do something to anger those long dead people. Same reason Navajo/Utes don't talk about Wendigo or Skinwalkers. If they talk about them, they believe it will...
  13. P. C. Bicknell -- "A Rock Cabin in a Cave"

    Steve, Dip, dodge, duck, and dive! LOL Great movie! Go to CALTOPO.COM They are free to use and very helpful with other things like local geology, terrain, etc. ..................................and I don't want to hear about your body failing you! HAHAHA You are only a year older than me if...
  14. Roman Coins in Anza-Borrego Desert

    HAHAHA You're the only one that mentioned it in 2014 when it first posted! LOL Better get somebody on it. I was about to give the location to Pegleglooker. I think he still lives around Palm Springs. Mike
  15. P. C. Bicknell -- "A Rock Cabin in a Cave"

    Okay, I've only been at this LDM Crap since about 2003 or 2004. I am a Greenhorn compared to many. One thing I have found with ZERO equivocation and 100% certainty is that the greatest majority of everything most people have read or heard about the LDM is complete and utter BS. The things that...
  16. "Challenge For Superstition Gold"

    Hey BB, Yeah, but I seem to remember you being deadset 100% certain that you had also found the Lost Dutchman Mine a few years ago. Remember when we all told you that you had located Chuck Crawford's Old Claims? I will give you a ton of credit though! While most people sit on their butts and...
  17. Roman Coins in Anza-Borrego Desert

    Many years ago, on a lark, I tossed six Roman Coins along the bank of Tule Wash (above the wash itself) in Anza-Borrego Desert. A few years later (2014) I briefly mentioned it in someone else's thread on finding a Roman Coin in the US. To my astonishment, only one person in five pages of posts...
  18. "Challenge For Superstition Gold"

    OKAY MARIUS, FINALLY, you and I agree! HAHAHA Yes, you must take a close look in GE at "The Superstition Hills" in the Mohave Desert in California. They are a small set of hills very close to the Eastern Edge of Fish Creek Mountain: Those hills would have been a perfect island in Lake Cahuila...
  19. Montezumas Treasuire: An Essay

    Somehiker, I saw that a while back. I remember when I first saw Josh Feldman, I started praying that he didn't start blathering about Waltz finding "Aztecan" Gold. When he said "I don't think so" I heaved a big sigh of relief! LOL Mike

    ........separate post regarding Viking Longboat: An acquaintance of several years is named Margot Wholey. I have mentioned her before, but for those (TLDR Folks). Margot has been documenting Seri Indian History and Culture for the last twenty or so years. She braves the new influx of Cartel...
