  1. Orthoconic ammonite piece, probably Orthoceras. Its an internal mold, “stienkern”, of part of it chambers. We have these all over the black shales in SD. Cool piece!

  2. Bob, I found this carved stone poodle statue here where I live, it's right on the beach, so I know the Spanish landed here 500 years ago and searched all the area's beaches for gold deposits, I also know they found all of the gold deposits and mined them because they didn't leave a single gold deposit on any of the beaches, I have looked very hard and they are all gone!!

  3. That "hand carved" camel monument is still being used to lure unsuspecting travelers…to the casino near-by. This thread is breaking new ground on speculation and misinformation, but it's kinda fun.

  4. Yep, dove and quail and people going out shooting clay pigeons. Common shot for those are 7,1/2's and 8's so thats a lot of shot per shell left out there for us to dig.

  5. The Newsboy claims were leased by an outfit from Colorado that appears notorious for running financial scams ... They did a bunch of drill holes ... They did hit a drilled pocket that showed 13 ozt per yard but it was at the old Queen of Sheba Mine which is about 4 miles NW from the Newsboy...They have a great geologist on staff, but management doesn't seem to follow his recommendations much, if at all ...Cheers, Unc

  6. "Cool piece, / Artifact"....I also see that it is a fossil, as Tom indicated as well, but I, being familiar with Indian artifacts can also see that it had been used as a tool by an early-native Indian tribe that existed in the area where you found it. I have found many of these stones (although not made from a fossil, as this one is) that had been hand-crafted and utilized as a tool for their daily needs. This tool is an "arrow-shaft straightener", as can be seen by the straight grove / slot worn in it's one side (picture # 3). You might also note (picture # 4) that the opposite side of th

  8. I took this picture awhile back. The mountain troll is certainly natural but he is overlooking some vast wealth.

  9. Hi BMc, I would only say that the ledge Bob inhabits is not your stock ledge. It's much wider and longer than most. Not sure either whether there's enough rope to snag him, but it's always fun to try...good luck.

  11. The Fandango is an entertaining dance to observe. It is no wonder I never tire of watching it.

  13. This entire thread is about you trying to convince someone that you have found rock outcroppings carved into markers by the Spanish in the Bradshaws. You have been beating this dead horse for almost a year now. You make preposterous claims but you can't back any of it up with a shred of evidence. You will perform quite a Fandango to save face though. You show us pictures of outcrops that show nothing out of the ordinary and insist they were "carved by skilled Spanish masons". You reference a guy that has made his living writing treasure fantasy as the only evidence your claims are true.

  14. That is Camel rock man. It is a natural rock formation. Come on buddy. It is at the village of Pojoaque! You may "purport" it to be hand carved but it is a rock formation just like the hundreds of other hoodoos in the immediate area that look just about like that. It has never been associated with any treasure except in someone's fertile mind. Nor was it a marker to "an oasis". It is on the flanks of the Sangre De Christos above the Rio Grande for heavens sake. In the Genizaro Village of Pojoaque which is just a few miles north of Santa Fe. …."Lure Spanish travelers to a nearby oasis
