That is the multimillion dollar question. The site is located on land I cannot access.
The sad thing is that I have been within 10,000 yards of this site on two previous locations.
What does one do with this information? I know where it is and have photos of it. I can't go get it.
Maybe I should just publish the location and see what happens. Truly, I don't know what to do.
I can pinpoint it with a lot of backup.
The land is privately owned and I am sure that would include the mineral rights for any ancillary finds. It is also in mountainous terrain.
I have even cross referenced all the local legends and it all points to a major horde of highly conductive metals (i.e. gold.)
I don't know any TH well enough to share the information but anyone except those affiliated with the land ownership would have difficulty accessing the area.
(I'm not sure if it is better to not solve a location or solving it but being unable to access it.)
I edited the original post above and put the text of the magazine article in it. It wasnt legible in the scanned picture from the magazine. That will explain a little more about the content.
The mineral rights would come into play if there was a vein. Have you ever looked up how the Spaniards would determine where to mine? They were pretty devious and creative. Their methodology still works today.
Hi Kentucky Kache,
I agree but it just isnt that simple. The land is not owned by an individual.
It all ads up and points to one very specific location.
That is just a back-burner project. The Compass Stone shown in the photo above (face carved in a boulder) has easier access.
