I have been to the Silver King Mine. The entire Eastern End of the Superstition Mountains is thick with silver (and some gold). That is why Resolution Trust is strip mining copper there. The copper pays the bills and gold/silver is profit.....and it is profitable. Government is now doing just like they did in the 1800s. Grab the land they gave to the Apache (n-deh) supposedly forever and give it to a rich mining conglomerate. The San Carlos and White Mountain Tribes are non too pleased. Just like when they took their "most sacred mountain" (Mt Graham) and let first the Vatican and then University of Arizona build telescopes there. I love that the UofA Telescope sits next to the Vatican Telescope and is named LUCIFER.

Thanks for sharing that Bowman. I have that exact book on my shelf! The old Iron Door predates the Dutchman tale.
