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.

The Lost 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.

Clues:

  • 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.

More clues:

  • 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.
