    Wife and I took the Saturday morning tour at the 16 to 1 mine again. This tour included the famous "Ball Room". 2 miles round trip and it was stunning. Loading video to Youtube today.

    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!

    "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 the grooved side of this fossil has been worn smooth,.......maybe because it had been fitted into the palm of a human's hand and griped tightly while the arrow shaft was being forced thru the groove on the other side,..like holding a wet stone in one hand and sharpening a knife, forcing it against that stone. I have found these arrow-shaft straighteners made of various stones down here in Arizona. Sometimes I would find one that had been started out to be one type of object, but got broken in the process, so who ever was hand-crafting at the time (instead of just throwing it away) would reshape (Re-purposing) the stone for a different purpose. Plus, considering that your stone has such interesting and geometric surface features, it may have been considered as a ceremonial piece as well, thus giving the arrow-shafts straightened-by- it a spiritual, or special significance for the hunter using those arrow-shafts; which, if "conceived and believed" by that hunter this would bring about a more successful hunt. ...........Sort of like conceiving, believing and picturing a gold nugget in your mind before you actually start detecting a particular likely spot,...Aye????????

    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!!

    Sounds good Bob. You have no idea how much work this has been since June 16, 2016, all while working a full time job at 52-68 hrs a week. When the books have arrived to us I will start the 3rd book. It is too much to try and start it now. I will be buying between 2-25 copies of this book (preorders) every friday to help reach the printing cost goal as soon as possible. I have already paid over $2000 to get the book to this point of being online and taking preorders. That is between editor fees, graphic artist fees, and web designer fees. I am commited to putting out a top quality book for all of you.

    We went out to one of my new favorite spots today looking for rhodonite ,and Arizona Jade and yes we found plenty, a whole mountain of rhodonite but no jade. This is a lost area of Arizona, only listed in a few prospecting books, and usually only has 1 line of details. but what you find here is Amazing. I will put a few picture on so you can get an idea of what I am saying, but what I want to know is what king of material, dirt or rock this drift mine is composed of. It is at eyeball level to a wash and if we had not been looking for more hand stacked rocks today we never would have found it. The material is very soft, you can dig it out with a twig. The drift goes back a good 50 - 60 feet, you have to crawl through it. It is layered in a grayish-white with brown layers and purple layers . Photos of the area:

    Interesting that you would quote me but not give credit. I will stand by what I wrote and grant you an education opportunity as a reply. These are not "Known Historical Facts". If you had actually continued your research you would know that Onate (the last conquistador) was prosecuted and convicted of lying in these records and for personally lying to the King about these discoveries. It is a famous and very well documented trial. He was convicted of 13 charges including murdering his second in command and two of his officers along with a few hundred Acoma natives. He was a very stabby guy and couldn't stand even a little criticism even when it came from his best friend and confidant - who he stabbed to death publicly. It was shown that Espejo had concocted his story also but his legacy was mostly excused because Onate based his defense on Espejo having lied. That really didn't matter to the court because Espejo didn't lie to the KING as Onate had and that was the worst crime under Spanish law - a much worse crime than getting all murder stab stab with his officers and friends. Onate was so disliked and distrusted by his expedition colonists that on one of the few occasions he left Santa Fe when he came back after two weeks 3/4 of his colonists and employees had grabbed their stuff and headed back home to northern Mexico. His expedition and his fortunes collapsed shortly thereafter at which point the KING signed a warrant for his arrest and trial. Onate lied to the KING about having a producing silver mine on the Hopi Mesas (there is NO mineralization in that formation). Onate lied to the KING about personally traveling west to reach the Southern Sea where he found pearls heaped upon the shore. Onate lied to the KING about the extent of the Kansas expeditions - leading to him ordering the murder of one of his officers who objected. As far as gold in the Sycamore? Never happened. I owned the gold tooth mine patent at the confluence of the Verde River and Sycamore Creek and lived there for more than a year in the '80s. I know Sycamore Canyon and all it's side canyons intimately from years of exploration. There are NO mineral deposits of any significance. Certainly no gold whatsoever. The flagstone quarry in Sycamore pass between Casner and Black mountain is the only mining that occurred in that area other than at the gold tooth. The gold tooth was not a gold mine. It was named for the little yellow/brown chert inclusions found in the fluorite deposit that was being mined to supply the smelter at Jerome - they resemble yellowed teeth if you use your imagination. The deposit at Jerome is a deeply folded volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit. The Spanish are very familiar with those deposits as they mine several world class deposits of that type in Spain. The central ore body at Jerome begins at the 1,600 foot level. There was a lot of gold found at and below that level. There is no free milling gold or silver near the surface. Some very oxidized copper minerals were exposed in a small patch above the many Jerome mines - you can still see that patch today if you can get permission to climb above the pit. That was the only surface exposure. "Ore"? Well sure if you are just dying to find something to report back so you can get more men and supplies. I've read Espejo's reports from this period and knowing the area well I can only conclude his reports were fantasy based on stories gleaned from natives he questioned in his travels. The simple fact he never provided any samples of his "rich ore" is more than suspicious in my mind particularly when combined with the fact that the deposits he "discovered" that Onate claimed to have mined never existed.

    Robert Friend, who flew 142 combat missions in World War II as a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, died Friday. He was 99. Friend's daughter, Karen Friend Crumlich, told the Desert Sun newspaper her father died at a hospital in Long Beach, Calif. The cause of death was not disclosed. "My dad was my hero. He was always there for me and at the end, I wanted to be there for him," she told the outlet. "He passed with family and dear friends surrounding him with love and affection. He is truly a National Treasure who I will carry in my heart. I promise to keep his legacy alive by telling his story to anyone who wants to hear it." Friend was born in Columbia, S.C., on Feb. 29, 1920. During his time with the Tuskegee "Red Tails," as the group was then called, he served as a wingman for the unit's commander, Benjamin O. Davis, who went on to become the Air Force's first African-American general. The Tuskegee program, which trained pilots, navigators and ground crews, was created by the military after the NAACP started challenging policies barring black people from flying military aircraft. "I never felt that I was anything but an American doing a job," Friend told the Desert Sun in 2017. Friend spent 28 years in the Air Force, serving in the Korean and Vietnam wars. He also worked on space launch vehicles and served as a foreign technology program director before retiring as a lieutenant colonel and forming his own aerospace company.

    Nice video Rick, thanks for taking us along!! I could have sworn a couple of times when you turned the light off I saw a TommyKnocker or 2 off to the side!! My avatar is one of 3 or 4 specimens I have from the 16 to 1 Mine, I bought them from an estate sale auction about 10 to 12 years ago, the gentleman who had them in his collection got them a good while ago and they were mined in the 1950s, don't know all the details but he could have gotten them about the time they came out of the mine, he supposedly knew the mine owners back then, not sure if he purchased them or they were given to him, he had 15 to 20 pieces/specimens, I tried for them all but got outbid on some at the last minute and others were more money than I wanted or could afford to paid, all the ones I have are each under 8 grams total weight, quartz and gold, some of the bigger ones in the auction were up to an ounce and a couple well over an ounce.

    Welcome to the forum! From my research I would have to agree that most likely what you're finding is pyrite, but if you could verify that it is indeed gold you will have discovered for the most part the first known gold deposits in shale in Illinois, there are a couple of reports but not verifiable that very minor and not commercial viable gold deposits have been found quartz, limestone and chert formations. That being said there is fine gold in some of the streams and rivers in Illinois but it all was brought down from Canada during the ice age by glaciers, here's a bit of info on the fine glacial gold in Illinois, which indeed shows that you might find a little bit of fine gold in the Spoon River. "Gold in Illinois Gold has not been found in sizable quantities in Illinois. Even as a byproduct of other types of mining there are limited reports of any significant amounts of gold being recovered. Nonetheless, Illinois is like many of its neighboring states that have been blessed with at least limited amounts of placer gold deposits in the form of past glacial drifts. Thousands of years ago, glaciers that moved southward from Canada carried richer gravels that contained gold. As these glaciers slowly receded, they dropped these gravels into many of the eastern states in the US, including Illinois. These deposits are generally scattered throughout large areas, and do not accumulate in quantities that are economically feasible for mining, but do provide recreational prospecting opportunities for gold seekers. A few areas with reported gold occurrences are listed below. In Macon County, the Sangamon River and its tributaries have some gold. Fulton County produces fine gold in the Illinois and Spoon Rivers. The Vermillion River in Ford County has produced small amounts of gold in the past. The Embarrass River in Jasper County has also produced some placer gold. In Wabash County, the Wabash River and tributaries have fine gold." A bit more info on gold in Illinois. https://www.isgs.illinois.edu/outreach/geology-resources/gold-its-occurrence-illinois

    I don't know that they would have known him, fred..... My grandparents owned a ranch down there when my dad was very young. They then moved to Skull Valley, and then to Prescott. My dad passed away in 1989 ( at age 62,..way to young), and the only info that I have about them in Walnut Grove is an old faded picture of their place down there, and a brief history of my dad's upbringing down there.

    Maybe a stone Chihuahua then? Is there another example of an outcrop carved into a poodle by the Spanish anywhere else in the Western hemisphere? Is there another example of them carving an outcrop into any shape? Since the Spanish just about conquered the globe at one point it seems we would see markers like these somewhere else. Especially since the King demanded it and all. Just one other example...anywhere on earth? How about one other example of a sculpted poodle in Spanish art. Spain has a rich art history and they captured their culture in every detail. Spain is all about art and architecture. Stone work, tile and ornate masonry work. If they so loved the poodle that they carved an outcrop in the hinterlands to mark a mine that no one bothered to record you would think there would be some other rendition of a poodle in Spanish architecture somewhere would you not? Just one example...anywhere? If they really did carve poodles and the king really did demand they mark trails to mines in this fashion why do we not see these types of markers anywhere else? And why do these "monuments" show no obvious sign of work by human hands? Why don't they look like poodles and Indians any more than a natural outcrop would? Is there any evidence that you can show that would indicate these outcrops have been worked at all other than your opinion they were? How about Kenworthy? Just one scrap of evidence that these outcrops have been worked. Claiming to know these have been worked much less who made them, what they are, what they mean and why they were there is a huge jump of logic for anyone. It is just fine to "believe" yourself, but if you want others to "believe" then you are going to have to give us more than your testimony. The photos that we have seen and the explanations just don't add up. ----- Some come back from the Bradshaws with gold. Others come back with some rusty crap and photos of rocks that look like poodles. If these are Spanish poodles built to mark a mine or a rich deposit then should we not be finding the mine or rich deposit rather than hyper focusing on the poodles? Honestly!

    Clay, you seriously crack me up man! I didn't use your name because I didn't want you to think I was trying to pick a fight with you. I just wanted to address the issue of the Spanish presence near the Bradshaws who were engaging in prospecting and mining activities North of the Gila. That's a well established fact in the historical record which you denied previously but now you reluctantly admit by saying, "Ore"? Well, sure if you are just dying to find something to report back so you can get more men and supplies" Getting you to admit an objective fact is like pulling teeth with you Clay! I would have been happy to give you credit, but actually I was trying to spare you the embarrassment of being wrong! (As you were in your previous attack on me) So, you argue that everyone was lying? I get it. Nobody went there, nobody found anything, it was all lies. LIES, LIES, LIES! The explorers lied, the witnesses who were deposed lied. The assay reports were obviously fabricated and fraudulent. (They are in the records) ALL LIES? Here's a quote from the Office of the New Mexico State Historian: "One party in Oñate’s group even traveled as far as the San Francisco Mountains in Arizona, where they found silver ore and staked a claim" LIES CLAY? That is North of the Gila isn't it Clay? Just a wee bit? No silver ever there? Is that what your saying or just not mined down to the 1600' level? (more irrelevant diversionary clap - trap) OK, now, let's examine your so called education opportunity, (without the selective cherry picked accusations against Onate) First let me emphasize that I am not defending Onate's brutality, but that has nothing to do with Spanish expeditions in the vicinity of the Bradshaw Mts! Clay, much to my disappointment, I now see that It's obvious you are just trying to create a diversion to obviscate the well documented fact that Onate did make and order expeditions near the Bradshaw Mts. (hoping to cover up the fact that you had not done the proper research before hand), that's OK, except now, having been forced to do the research, you have to carefully cherry pick and present only what falsely serves your one sided argument which not only distorts the facts but attempts to change the subject (like you did last time) Contrary to your assertion, I completed the research months ago. I know what has been reported as being factual (and there are several different interpretations and versions as you no doubt realize) You said: "If you had actually continued your research you would know that Onate (the last conquistador) was prosecuted and convicted of lying in these records and for personally lying to the King about these discoveries. It is a famous and very well documented trial. He was convicted of 13 charges including murdering his second in command and two of his officers along with a few hundred Acoma natives. He was a very stabby guy and couldn't stand even a little criticism even when it came from his best friend and confidant - who he stabbed to death publicly. It was shown that Espejo had concocted his story also but his legacy was mostly excused because Onate based his defense on Espejo having lied. That really didn't matter to the court because Espejo didn't lie to the KING as Onate had and that was the worst crime under Spanish law - a much worse crime than getting all murder stab stab with his officers and friends" My Response: Really Clay? Please. Spare me the drama and false pretenses. You and I know the truth because we have researched the historical records (of which there are many), but Clay, if it had been a punitive trial and as serious as you would have us believe, surely he would have been punished severely or possibly even been executed, right? Was he executed Clay? Was he imprisoned? Do you want to be honest and disclose what happened to Onate Clay? Didn't he just resign his post as Governor in New Mexico, go home to Mexico because he could no longer pay his army, or provide for them because he had exhausted his entire fortune supporting them (the Crown didn't pay them) and the Crown didn't support the expedition, including Onate (That's the main reason why the deserters were taking their families and going home) They had no food or means of support except by force of arms against the native tribes which was constantly resulting in violence. They wanted the old system of encomienda - free land and natives as slaves to make them rich. That system was outlawed and didn't Onate enforce that Law? Many of his group hated Onate because of that. As you stated, Onate was "The Last Conquistador" and his father was a rich silver magnate and mine owner. He was weaned on stories of Pizarro, who looted the Inca Empire, and Cortes, who annihilated the Aztec Empire (Onate was married to Isabel de Tolosa Cortes Montezuma), a descendant of conquistador Hernán Cortes and the Aztec emperor Montezuma), so he had it in his blood to search for riches; gold and silver. And didn't Onate get rich again working in his father's silver mines in Mexico before he was called back to Spain to face an instigated show trial, and after his trial and conviction (on charges brought by his political enemies, including the "Religious"), didn't he receive a pardon, and was then appointed to a high post as "head of all mining" in Spain? HE RECEIVED A SLAP ON THE WRIST AND THEN A PROMOTION CLAY!! He had exhausted his fortune chasing around searching for cities of gold, where none existed like Coronado did before him, so naturally he had gone West where Espejo had reported a silver discovery. And according to supported historical records, it appears that he located and mined the same mineral deposits referred to by his predecessor. The historical records state and confirm that the Spanish mined surface ore not far from the Bradshaws. Again, the point is, they were there. And some of the explorers could have been in the Bradshaws as well. They were known to be searching for mineral wealth without permission of the King, going where they were forbidden by law to go,and in some instances under a pretext. History shows that it was probably much more widely done than has ever been reported because records were purposely not kept by some during the clandestine explorations into parts of the Northern Kingdom. Did they sometimes lie to cover up their activities? Yes! And at times, they couldn't bring back the ore they discovered to show because they weren't supposed to have been there to begin with. But some were bold enough (according to validated records) to report their finds and ask permission to further their explorations. These requests were usually not granted by the King, partially because the King knew he was losing control of these expeditions and suspected that the Royal "5th", 20% tax, wasn't being paid to the Crown. And new discoveries of rich silver in Mexico were getting the attention and support of the Spanish government because they were easier to oversee and control. Finally Clay, you turned a simple book report assignment into a fiction novel, and in doing so revealed your bias toward the truth, which is a further disappointment since you once said you were fond of facts, remember? Oh, no doubt you can inundate us with trail testimony, more filler and white noise on the subject, but it doesn't change the basic conclusion that you concealed material facts to slant your argument. You said: "I'm fond of facts. Facts and truth are inseparable friends. Speculation and imagination are very useful human traits and pursued with integrity they can lead to new facts to support the truth. Speculate as you wish but when speculations are contradicted by the facts that speculation is better characterized as fantasy. Fantasy does have it's place in human experience but I've never found a useful outcome when fantasy is mixed with mining. Perhaps your experience is different than mine?" Yes, thankfully it is. Unfortunately Clay, it seems that the only facts that you are fond off are your own "facts", that can be manipulated and shaped to suit your argument. it should be obvious that integrity in research and reporting requires a truthful disclosure of the whole story not just those "facts" convenient to your slanted argument. You shouldn't have to cherry pick and distort the "facts", which serves to misrepresent the record. Integrity seems to be lacking in your reporting Clay, so if that's the kind of education opportunity you are offering, I respectfully decline the "opportunity"

    Hey fred,... my dad was born on a ranch in, or around Walnut Grove (Yavapai County, AZ). You can pull it up on Google maps. But, it isn't anywhere near Rich Hill. The turn off to Walnut Grove, Az. is off-of Hwy 89 South, just past Kirkland Junction (Kirkland valley Rd). There are some fairly good gold placers over there, and a number of claims ( a few being the Roadrunners); and as I understand a company has plans of re-opening a fairly large gold mining operation over there that has been there for many years, but shut down. I'm familiar with the back road out of Yarnell, Az. that snakes down into the East side of Rich Hill, but I've never heard of a Walnut Grove over that way. Gary

    Most of our generation of 60+ were HOME-SCHOOLED in many ways. 1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE. "If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning." 2. My mother taught me RELIGION. "You better pray that will come out of the carpet." 3. My father taught me about TIME TRAVEL. "If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!" 4. My father taught me LOGIC. " Because I said so, that's why ." 5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC . "If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going to the store with me." 6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT. "Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident." 7. My father taught me IRONY. "Keep crying, and I'll give you something to cry about." 8. My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS. "Shut your mouth and eat your supper." 9. My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM. "Just you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!" 10. My mother taught me about STAMINA. "You'll sit there until all that spinach is gone." 11. My mother taught me about WEATHER. "This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it." 12. My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY. "If I told you once, I've told you a million times, don't exaggerate!" 13. My father taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE. "I brought you into this world, and I can take you out..." 14. My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION . "Stop acting like your father!" 15. My mother taught me about ENVY. "There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don't have wonderful parents like you do." 16. My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION. "Just wait until we get home." 17. My mother taught me about RECEIVING. "You are going to get it from your father when you get home!" 18 . My mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE. "If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they are going to get stuck that way." 19. My mother taught me ESP. "Put your sweater on; don't you think I know when you are cold?" 20. My father taught me HUMOR. "When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me." 21. My mother taught me HOW TO BECOME AN ADULT. "If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up." 22. My mother taught me GENETICS. "You're just like your father." 23. My mother taught me about my ROOTS. "Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?" 24. My mother taught me WISDOM. "When you get to be my age, you'll understand. 25. My father taught me about JUSTICE . "One day you'll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like you!" This should only be sent to the over 60 crowd because the younger ones would not believe we truly were told these "EXACT" words by our parents.
