Well, I am glad some of you have enjoyed the site, I am working on the editing at this time, I run it all myself so sometimes, I miss a few details. Also, in regards to the lost mine location, if you were to find it, you are not looking for a typical mine as in there is no adit(mine entrance or tunnel)according to the story. Unless of course, Volcanic Brown had time to dig one but I dont think so. Perhaps its possible that some unknown party had time to do it you never can tell. But I would say from one of my photos there is not an adit in the canyon itself. In one of the pictures I have it looks like there may be small tailings pile north of the canyon and perhaps there is an adit up there one you cant see.Only further exploration will help us learn more.
The lost mine of Pitt lake has or as its also been called the lost creek mine is a creek bottom, with gold vein running through the bottom of it and up the back of the canyon.
I have a picture of a semi-rusty quartz vein that can be found at the bottom of one of the local gold bearing creeks. The lost mine vein would look something like this photo. But I dont want to post a link to the picture as may be accused of selling on this site and dont want to upset the powers that be.
In the lost creek bottom, the creek has a very very small exit from the canyon, hence why the gold has not washed down into the rivers, forming placer further downstream from its location. Its all been building up in the canyon over many many many years. I hope to get a sample from the back of the canyon this year is mother nature will allow it or even better a nugget, One of my main motivations in the search for this treasure has always been to just learn the dam truth of the legend. As, that old TV show called the X files used to say, I want to believe. I believed in the lost mine, but dont want it to kill me any longer. I dont want there to have to be something there so I can survive. I also dont want to try and make a living writing about it as we all know that gets you in all kinds of trouble especially on this forum. You end called things like greedy. I am not greedy, I just wanted to make a little money from something I enjoyed. Sorry, if these attempts upset anyone.
In regards to the B25 bomber, I have been thinking about giving away the location. Just try not to take everything from the site, I know someone will make a large sum off it selling artifacts from it on ebay or something like that. Now, those are the ones you can call greedy, I am just a writer/prospector trying to make a living, I am not what you would call a treasure hunter at least not anymore. My passion is story and history. Talk to you soon
