    Robert Blair wrote "[t]here have been at least four legendary Lost Dutchman's gold mines in the American West, including the famed Superstition mine of Jacob Waltz". One Lost Dutchman's mine is said to be in Colorado, another in California; two are said to be located in Arizona.   According to locals, they had found the Lost Sopori Mine. The men died with wealth. In an report reveals that the Arizona Land and Mining Company was working a mine just north of Sopori Rancho thought to be the old San Xavier silver mine. See the photo beginning this s: 4.

      Lost Dutchman Peralta Locality. The Lost Dutchman is one of the greatest lost mine stories of them all. I’ve spent years studying and writing about it (even searching for it) and I don’t believe Jacob Waltz had a fabulous gold mine in the Superstitions. The late Tom Kollenborn was the foremost expert on the legend and a good friend. A few mines are still being actively worked today, but most mining companies that have tried to revive the old mines have been unsuccessful. The stories of lost gold mines still lure prospectors, even today. Many believe it is easier to find a mine that has been lost, than to discover a new location.

    Though various types of mines have existed across the nation, almost from the very discovery of America, those in the American West, are and were, the most plentiful and the history they’ve left in their wakes is of romance, fortunes made and lost, hardships, greed, Indian Wars, and numerous crusty old ghost towns.. From the beginning, America presented an image of golden wealth, and that. The rugged landscape and New Mexico mountains made hiding treasure ideal back in the “old days” when banks and safety deposit boxes were not an option. Army Payroll in San Juan County. Red Hill Treasure. The Lost Padre Mine. Victorio Peak Mystery Treasure. More New Mexico Treasures. You Can Search For Black Gold.
