LDM and other things

Joe, I am very interested in finding out some information on a George W. Hayes. Hayes reputedly acquired a fortune before he turned 21 from mining in Arizona and Mexico. He later relocated to Goldfield, Nevada, and was a business associate of Martin`s son, and a major player in the gold strike in Go...

LDM and other things

Joe, First let`s start with the LDM and the Stone Maps. I agree with you that LDM 1 is shown on the Stone Maps. And yes you can`t reveal the location of LDM 1 without revealing the other. What I have come to believe though is LDM 1 is only incidental to the Maps. The Maps reveal the location of the ...

The LDM and other things

Joe, Haven`t a clue why Bark said what he did. Find it a bit surprising. The gold must have been specimen pieces for them to have gotten $60.00 an ounce. If my memory serves me I believe Gold was between 14-18 dollars an ounce at that time. Believe it didn`t get to 35 dollars an ounce until the 1930...

Hi Bill,

Dahlonega can mean either golden as in color, or yellow as in money.

Yes

Backdoors and such

Joe, Thank you for the information regarding Mr.Howard. If was most helpful. Actually the sensitivity regarding Black Top Mesa is driven by the fact I tend to talk too much. It is not driven by my concerns regarding calling attention to the location. After all if all of those folks looked for years ...

Backdoors and such

Joe, For the moment Black top Mesa is too sensitive to discuss. Would be interested in hearing Mr. Howard`s story if you can share. One cannot find what one was given. Guess I could ask you to re-phrase the question but I know what you are interested in. Suspect you know where the information came f...

Back doors/Georgia on my mind

Hi Gene, Dahlonega is a neat town. There is a famous mine close by called the Calhoun Mine. It was quite a producer. The veins there are in metamorphic rock. Good example, I believe, in the support of the lateral secretion theory of ore deposition. Anyway the Calhoun mine was a real money machine fo...

Lost Dutchman location

Gene, Thanks for the information. I will send a check out today. See you are in Georgia now. I grew up there and spent a lot of time in the hills of North Georgia looking for Gold. A lot of folks don`t know there was a major Gold strike there and that a U.S. Mint was established in Dahlonega. Beauti...

Lost Dutchman

Mr. Reynolds, I hope you get your files back. I would like to get a copy of your book if that is possible. The Lost Dutchman, where could it be. I would suggest one look closely in Pistol Canyon and Squaw Canyon. The issue is not what seperates the two canyons, but what connects them. They are conne...

Sluicebox, From where I sit the possibility that a single mine could produce different types of ore is always a distinct possiblity if there are multiple events producing the deposit and there are adequate fractures, faults or shear zones to accomodate the mineralizing solutions.

Mr. Reynolds, Thank you for your prompt reply to my inquiry. Martin was involved with the Peralta`s starting in the 1840`s.

Joe, Have to head to the airport but let me leave you with a final thought. Perhaps Ely was given the location to the LDM and something else. The gift was always a two-edged sword, you can`t reveal one without revealing the other. The other exists behind a waterfall. The other is worth a lifetime of...

Cripple Creek, Colorado was probably the biggest Gold Telluride Deposit ever found. Actually some similarities now that I th...
