Martin`s Diary

Bill Have to admit there is a certain amount of humor to all of this. But have to say the people we have selected will do a quality job and at the end of the day that is all that is really importent. My associates are both from Georgia and we have selected an institution close to them, and actually ...

martin`s diary

Joe,

I need to apologize for my remarks. Irregardless of the circumstances they were inappropriate.

I am sure the folks down there do a wonderful job in promoting Arizona at its history.


Regards,

Martin`s Diary

Joe, We wanted to place the material in Arizona. It is clear that it is not wanted. We approached several entities in the state. Bill, Martin was a mining engineer who was employed by the Peralta`s and left their employ after the Massacre. The diary is a 225 page history of Peralta Mining Operations...

Jake`s Ore

Joe, There is no real reason to speak with Grayhair. We have decided to donate the written material to a University in the South. We are currently discussing placement of the items with with two institutions. It is what it is. Bill, The information I am referencing comes from Martin`s diary. We stil...

The LDM

Zentull, I tend to agree with you that there is ample evidence the Apache`s covered up Peralta Mines. There is also a body of evidence that they did not cover all of them up and that the Peralta`s built back doors into several of the vein systems they worked. Whether or not the Apache`s covered up t...

Bank Doors/theblacklegion/ and whatever

Joe, It is good to see you get you sense of humour back. The bunch you quarrel with down there is not worth the trouble. You folks do tend to work on each other a bit. I really wouldn`t care what is thought. Guess the real issue is not getting in, the issue is getting out. The problem is figuring ou...

The Black Legion

Hi Joe, Seems like you folks are having some exciting times down there. As far as the Black Legion goes perhaps folks are getting too hung up on names. Let`s just say they are some savvy businessmen looking after their financial and spiritual interests in the Superstitions. Every now and then they m...

Jake`s Gold

Joe, Bill, Jim, Novice The Peralta Mine, known as the LDM, and I refer to as LDM 1 does exist. Interestingly enough it is not the richest Peralta Mine in the Superstitions. Its importance is far greater than that. The ancient ones were there a long time ago and left a gift. Perhaps it is time to dea...

the black legion

Lazarus, Believe the black legion, very colorful name, is active only during certain times of the year. Sorta like bees. They have certain economic requirements and well gold is gold. Pretty peaceful these days. Seems folks have just settled in. Sometimes the Superstitons is like New York. Everyone ...

Hi Joe, Thanks for the follow up information on the ore sample. Think those samples, assuming the information is correct, should give folks pause in thinking that Waltz was only on to one Peralta Mine. But then again one could contend they were just different ore shoots in the same mine. From where ...

Square set timbering

Hi Bill, Thanks for the heads up. Square set Timbering has been used in a number of deposits other than the Comstock. It is really a great low tech solution to working in soft earth. Had a friend in Canada a ways back, up in the Yukon, who used it quite successfully. What is particularly helpful is ...

LDM Thanks for the additional information regarding the Loveless Collection. Hopefully I will have the opportunity one day to sit down and go through the material. Just curious did she ever talk about the Dutchman having different types of Gold ore. Probably never came up but I thought I would ask. ...

LDM, Actually I would be very interested in your interpretation of Ms. Loveless`s collection. Having read a number of your posts I have always found them to be informative and revealing. In fact, for what it is worth, you had a post in 2002 that I believe is probably the most importent post that was...

the truth

S.C, LDM,


Seems like a great thread. Really haven`t a clue to what Ms. Loveless was all about but would really enjoy hearing the story if you folks would share.

If this lady can give us a better picture of what happened, I say bring it on.

Ray, Really enjoyed looking at your document. Was hoping to discuss it a bit but it is what it is. I really try to stay out of the craziness that goes on here. Sometimes that can be a bit hard. I do have opinions and I think we should try to deal with each other with mutual respect. Not sure there a...

Stone Maps, gorges, and other things

Hi Joe, Hope things are going well with you folks. Got a note from Gene. Looks like he is doing ok. Takes a lot of courage to go through that kind of surgery. Suspect he has seen the light and will become a Georgia Tech fan now they have beat Auburn. I read a post that suggests you are part of a con...

the heart, the triangle and the gorge

Jan, Mr. Tucker`s Map is really remarkable. Try something. Rotate the triangle, and the mine symbol directly to the heart symbol. Then consider: the direction of my mine is the narrow gorge. Observe the triangle in the middle of the heart. The question then becomes why do this? Where do we get the d...

Stone Maps

Jan, Interesting conclusion. Guess there is no relationship between the carvings and the stone maps. Perhaps I was mis-understanding the carvings.
