We are all a different breed of cat, but Ryan managed to make many Dutch Hunters uncomfortable. No matter how hard he tries, he will never be able to unseat Greg Davis or Tom Kollenborn as...

Re: Ancient Goldfield Mine(s)

Hello Hiker, Those are some very good links that you have found. I agree with you on the Aztecs not mining here, but they may have had a broker or advisor role. I've read that even the Aztecs stayed very clear of the Yaquis, and an Aztec force moving through their territory that seemed threatening ...

Blackline posted this earlier today: "Mitchell Waite passed away on the morning of April 19, 2015, due to heart failure, in Mesa, Arizona." Sad to hear this, and especially so late. Mitch and I formed a limited partnership a number of years ago. He only made one trip in with our team, and ...

Re: The Holy Grail

cuzzinjack,

I believe it's the other way around. The Fish Map in my picture came from Frank Fish. When did Linda produce her copy? It's a prime reason that the people who signed the map concentrated on Black Top. None of them, as far as I know, ever found anything of value.

Take care,

Joe

Re: The Holy Grail

cuzzinjack,

This is an exact copy of the original Frank Fish Map. It was done by my Uncle, Chuck Ribaudo:

I have little doubt that it is an accurate tracing.

Re: Yellow Jackets

Ben,

Good to see you are still paying attention. I assume classes are out for the Christmas/New Year holidays. Is there a book nearing publication?

In any case, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours.

Take care,

Hi Roy, If Ben does finally write a book, I don't see how I can resist buying it. After all, I did buy the Nicholes' book with 0 expectations of finding anything new. However, on page 29 they wrote this: "This article was 42 inches from the original top surface. The topsoil was a stratum of 17...

Re: new read

Ben, I received Myra Nichols' book on Wed. It looks like it's well written, but basically a rehash of others work. So far, I haven't seen any of the facts that negate the original theory. The fact that the artifacts were found in Pleistocene era caliche , is a red flag that the caliche was hollowed ...

Re: Cerro Negra

As I recall, the ruts are in the eastern part of the range. The caves of gold bars are in the western end.
