tricks/trails/ viva Las Vegas

Hello Joe, Hope things are going well with you and yours. Pretty day here in Reno but not for long. Interesting point about the trick in the trail. Maybe I am completely wrong the birfurcation of the trail is not the trick. Who knows maybe the hole is in the cave. Have to say the Peralta mining effo...

tricks trails and what might be

Joe, Believe I heard the one about Waltz being a cross dresser but I never added that to the clue list. A dragon on the other hand, that is importent to know. Seriously though having said that you are perfectly correct about the tradition. I still believe Ely`s work, Bark`s notes, and Carlson`s book...

dragons, tricks and whatever

Hello Joe, Have to admit I am not familiar with the fire breathing dragon clue. I will have to check my clue list to see if that is a close in phenomena. But then again maybe the dragon was taken out by the black legion or perhaps eaten by the Apache`s with the mules they took from the Peralta`s. Or...

Unanswered questions

Dr. Glover Good to see you posting again. Just would like to say how much I enjoyed reading both of your books. For me the most importent unanswered question regarding the LDM,(Mine) goes to the ore analysis you presented in your first book. If I am understanding your work correctly you are indicati...

Hello sluicebox, Believe the area around the old Squaw Canyon(Valley) and LaBarge is where you would have found the Willow that Deering marked. If I remember correctly Bark is the one that took that clue out. Yes I believe you can get to the general area from a different access route. I prefer the t...

Starburst and Tricks

Hello Joe and Larry, Joe, Actually the signs are importent because of their relationship to mining operations. Wouldn`t describe them as scratches in the rock, whoever did this was pretty sophisticated. Yes there are a number of pictures that have been taken of them but those pictures are not mine t...

Not talking about geological phenomena. Talking about signs. Just wondering who may have left them.

The LDM and other things

TGH, Sylvanite. AuAgTe4. Believe it is found in epithermal environments if my memory serves me. Pretty stuff. Was the Sylvanite visible? Interesting, someone may have been working an epithermal deposit, probably associated with a caldera complex. Just a guess. The LDM 1-4 business is just my way of ...

Roger, Ore Deposits of the Superstitions/LDM 1. Perhaps the best way to illustrate why I believe LDM 1 is an epithermal deposit is to reference a post I made a while back. This post refers to the Deering/Two Soldiers/ LDM1. " Your question about the volcanic Chimney is a good one. LDM 1 in my opinio...

Good Morning, Too cold up here today. Had a bit of snow Yesterday. My ex-wife put her car in a snow bank last night and called for help. Seems marriages come and go but chores never cease. Amazing.

the trick in the trail and the cave

Hi Wiz, Good point. Perhaps the beginning of an answer to your question is another question. Where in the literature regarding Joe Deering does it specifically say Deering ever says the trick in the trail is a hole or cave? Believe Deering is reported to have said that there is a trick in the trail,...

Hello Roger, Enjoyed your posting regarding the caves of the LDM. You asked for other takes on the clues and I will offer the following. I apologize in advance if my comments wander a bit from the caves to other considerations. I only do so to illustrate how the cave issue is an intergral part of ot...

No way words can adequately express the heartbreak some of you must be feeling.

Great questions. Don`t really have a clue about the gold Waltz left under his bed or the ensuing free for all. Have opinions about the type of gold deposit it came from but that is not germane to this discussion. Maybe someone out there can comment on this. Know it has been said before but it bears ...

Hi Larry, Suspect Waltz was not in Mexico as the traditional accounts suggest. Having said that the Holmes account is really hard to accept. Believe the Holmes account is basically just an accumulation of information that was floating around at the time and a bit of creativity thrown into the stew t...

Murphy, Thanks for the information. I have been out of pocket for a few days and just read your response. Good point.

All, In reading Dr. Glover`s book I am a bit puzzeled by his conclusion that the Holme`s version of events is possible while the traditional account of Jake`s encounter with the Peralta`s and the LDM is not possible. For the life of me I can`t really figure just why the traditional account cannot be...
