Re: Hidden in Plain Sight

Joe, I’ve read some of Michael Sheridan’s work, and he hypothesized that the reason the Goldfield ore was so rich was because the Whitetail formation contained placer gold that was dissolved and redeposited as bonanza veins. He was right, and he had not even heard of the concept of Lake Higley brine...

Re: Hidden in Plain Sight

Hello Joe, I tried my best, and hopefully it gets the point across about just how important this is. The more I learn, the more flabbergasted I am that the virgin Goldfield Caldera with the conditions described could exist right out in the open, and you can drive over most of it. I have nothing in t...

Hidden in Plain Sight

After reading Dr. Glover’s new book, my hunch that most of the “lost gold” is still in the ground was reinforced. How can a large quantity of gold possibly remain? In a previous post it was shown that there are at least 4 collapse calderas in the Goldfield Mining District, each marking the extents o...

Hello Joe,

The major flags are yellow, bright green, white, and brown-black. There are 2 yarn strings that are draped over and one is white and one is red. i do not know what the strings mean, but they may be key.

Re: NEW BOOK....

Hello Joe, The book is excellent. I'll have to read some chapters again due to rushing to get to the next. There are so many things in this book that I did not know about. Dr. Glover’s style reminds me of Alan Eckert and his “Frontiersman” series of novels. Many of my questions were answered. I’m st...

Hello Joe and Don,

Speaking of ox-carts, it took 8 days from the time my book was registered as received in the post office in Prescott to the time it was delivered to my mailbox in Gilbert, AZ. Times have really not changed that much after all. Finally, the reading can begin..........

Re: Casa Caverna

Don, I can tell that you are still a little bit intrigued by the mystery; and you must have had a great interest at one time to have studied so much about it. As you know, it is accepted by most that the Lost Dutchman mine is one of the Peralta mines, and from all the things I have read, there is no...

This post is concerned with the Minas Del Oro Map as a follow-up to the mercury vapor survey described in the thread “Blood in the Water”.

Blood in the Water

I rented a mercury vapor tester, a Jerome J405, and went out last Saturday to see what’s up at the First Water Ranch. Only samples of the surface air were performed, and a lot of them were from .5 to 2 micrograms per cubic meter in strength. Note: this is 500 to 2000 nanograms. The soil was still da...

Re: Ox-Carts

Having great curiosity as to why Sina Lewis would build a house 1-1/2 miles south of the hat-shaped rock, a tour was made of the area surrounding where the house stood. It didn’t take long to see why the Gonzales story could have happened exactly as Sina was told. Directly to the east of the house, ...

Hi Joe, Thank you for the complement. If everyone would kick in with what they know, or go back and reinvestigate their files, this would get real interesting. Hello Mike, It’s agreed that there are great risks in believing hearsay. However, I believe Sina Lewis had some skin in the game. Her house ...

Re: Ox-Carts

Hello Mike, You are 100% right on all counts. I’ve read somewhere that an epithermal deposit takes only 10,000 years to form; and a porphyry takes 100,000. So, there can easily be a deposit hidden under tuff. A relative by marriage, now passed away, had 40 claims where the Organ Pipe National monume...

This miner has a much different perspective than the Dutch-hunters out there…….

Why not look for ...

Last Saturday, some time was spent studying the Peralta Stones(map and heart stone) at the museum. I could not touch them, but here is what was noted: • On the upper left hand corner edge of the heart stone, there is an open fissure on the bedding plane of the rock. Therefore, it does not appear tha...

To test the aforementioned theory(without drilling), it is thought that these categories have to be proven: 1) The geology 2) Evidence of Peralta’s in the area 3) Jacob Waltz connection (because this is where it all began, but will never be fully proven) The geology category is the most important.

Hello Oroblanco, It’s great to see a discussion here relevant to the task at hand. Agreed, there is so much chaff out there, it is difficult to know truth from fiction.
