Re: Bumble Bee lost treasure

the part that does not make sense to me is the mine is EAST of bumble bee...while it is possible...that direction is a lava flow...a real deep one...so the gold would have to be under the lava...to the west, north or south are plenty of gold mines and prospects. ??? guess that is why the mine is lost.
