The Peralta family, Apaches, soldiers, gold miners and some dutchman that wasn't really a dutchman all point to the mine being north of Weavers Needle less than 5 miles in diameter.
Though many gold hunters may find this information useful to search for the lost dutchman gold mine, this page is ultimately intended for a small group I have personally invited to hike with me. I wish you all the best in your quest to find the lost mine and hope I can be of assistance. The goal of this hike is to find and cultivate the true gold of life - strong, close relationships with people you can count on... just kidding. That's sissy talk! The real goal is about FINDING GOLD IN THEM THERE HILLS!! So read the clues, pack your gear, and get your pansy-ass in those mountains with me. Below are the clues I've gathered from arduous research sifting through endless information on wikipedia for about 30 minutes. If you are wondering about the picture above, I took the shot on the way back up to the saddle after almost dying. Somewhat close to dying... okay we just got lost for a bit and I was low on water. But still, I was scared. I had plenty of Mexican food after to calm me down.Advertisement
I have saved these coordinates in my watch. They aren't always active but at least we have some options to check out.
Most webpages that have written articles on the mine seem to be roaming all over the Superstitions looking for a spot that fits mostly this clue: Waltz can see the Old Military Trail from his mine but nobody can see the mine from the Military Trail.
We need some essentials to get us through this journey barely alive begging for help and wishing we hadn't done such a stupid thing. So, we need mostly a ton of water and of course our phones so we can take selfies and post them to facebook. Oh and food for lunch because we will be out there all day! I realize you're smart enough to pack wisely but I just needed to make my page more interesting. Your backpack should provide some relief from your shoulders on this hike which means a lower strap above your hips or old man beer belly is a must. I will be wearing a wide brim hat with a long sleeve shirt which has vents for airflow. I will also bring some warmer layers with a beanie cap in case we get stuck out there at night. I might also bring a gun in case someone gets greedy. I added other useless consumerism crap I was told I need and because I like to waste time and money on gadgets.
My excuse is to show you a prototype of our post trip article and video. Our story, photos, short videos and the tidbits of the Lost Dutchman history will be added to a blog with advertising and products to sell. If we can make a short movie by incorporating 'Project X' then we might make a mildly entertaining page that could fund lunch or whatever for future projects. We can find other stories of lost treasure or mysteries that will give us an excuse to go for hikes and explore.
