THE TREASURE OF THE
LOST DUTCHMAN MINE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is the Lost Dutchman Mine?
If you decide to go hunting for the Lost Dutchman Mine
be very careful as many have met with foul play that have gone in search of it in
the past, or so the legend goes.
Dutchman was Jacob Waltz who came to America from Germany about 1845.
For years Jacob Waltz wandered the Superstition
Mountains in Arizona before finding the mine in the 1870's.
He hinted that the mine was on a ledge eighteen inches wide of pure gold high
above a gulch and it is well concealed by brush.
He described the mine to friend Julia Thomas and promised to take her there
but died before he could.
A box of gold was discovered under his bed.
- No miner will find my mine.
- To find my mine you must pass a cow barn.
- From my mine you can see the military trail, but
from the military trail you can not see my mine.
- The rays of the setting sun shine into the
entrance of my mine.
- There is a trick in the trail to my mine.
- My mine is located in a north-trending canyon.
- There is a rock face on the trail to my mine.
- It lies within an imaginary circle whose diameter is not more
than five miles and whose center is marked by Weaver's Needle.
- If you pass three Red Hills you have gone too far.
- You can see Weaver's Needle to the south and Four
Peaks to the north where Four Peaks looks like one peak.
- The setting sun shines through a break in the mountains and glitters upon the
ore and shaft.
- You have to climb a short ways from a steep ravine in order to see Weaver's
Needle to the southward from above the mine.
