Mr. Ely was a man of integrity. His work may prove to be far more accurate than you can imagine.

Sims Ely and the Lost Dutchman Mine

Sorry about the translation issue. The person working this for you apparently is not accustomed to german mining slang. The correct translation is: There is no lode like that, Which has an iron hat. Never said the coordinates were the end of the rainbow. Work the relationship between the coordinates...

Sims Ely and the Lost Dutchman Mine

You can lead them to water but you can`t make them drink. The LDM. Imagine a honeycomb with Waltz`s shaft being but one entrance. The bees have been there for a long time. Still are. Accept the possibility of another history to the Superstitions that does not begin with the stealing of a dead man`s ...

R.W. Boyle, The Geochemistry of Gold and its Deposits, Bulletin 280 Geological Survey of Canada, 1979, page 230. Reference the comments made regarding mineralogical zones which flank the Veins at Goldfield, Nevada in tertiary dacites, latites, and andesites.

The waterfall was always the key.

Sims Ely and the Lost Dutchman Mine

The book was signed by Mr. Ely. There is a personal note to a Mr. Tom Watson. I finished up the book today and really enjoyed his story. He seems quite the story teller and it seems like he knew what he was talking about. There are 17 letters of correspondence between Mr. Ely and Mr. Watson. From wh...

Sims Ely and the Lost Dutchman Mine

Thank you for the kind words. I live in Reno, Nevada. I read a few chapters in the book and yes it is signed. Also i have read a few of the letters and it appears the correspondence between Ely and this gentlemen regarded some prospecting trips in the Superstitutions. What is fascinating and I maybe...

Recently I was in Downieville, California and came across a hardback book by a gentlemen named Sims Ely. The book and a number of letters from the Pheonix area were being sold at a yard sale by an elderly lady who was cleaning out her garage. Seems her husband had passed away recently. Her family wa...
