"Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine, Arizona"

In the news here in Arizona. There are three men missing in the Superstitions Mountains, east of Phoenix. The Superstitions Mountains are located just east of Apache Junction. This rugged mountain range. Raises rite out of the desert floor vertically. And sitting on the back side of the main mountain, sits Weavers Needle. A rock spire that shoots straight up, like a church cathedral. Like it was man made. This is the area most gold hunters believe. Is where the infamous, Lost Dutchman's gold mine is. Many folks have died looking for this famous mine. And it appears 3 treasure hunters from Utah, will join the list.

There are several stories about how the Superstitions got it name. The most famous one locally says. That "God" turned the inhabitants of the area into stone (Apaches?). Like the old story from the Christian Bible. Another claims that the famous Spanish explorer by the name of. Francisco Vasquez de Coronado in 1540. Who was looking for the Seven Cities if Cibola (gold). And he named it 'Monte Superstition. After what had happen to several of his men. While they were pulling gold out of the mountain. Several of his men disappeared from sight. Even when they were working next to another Spaniard soldier. Then there body would show up later beheaded.

The Apaches told Francisco Vasquez de Coronado. That there was plenty of gold in the mountains. They also said, they would not go into the mountain range. They believed it was sacred land. That "Thunder God" lived in the Mountain. And if they trespassed on his land. "He" would destroy them.

The first person to start mining a rich vein of gold from the Superstitions was. Don Miquel Peralta in 1845. His family was a prominent Mexican family, from the area of Sonora, Mexico. And he was looking for the treasure that was described to Coronado. He found rich veins of gold in the Superstitions. So he organized a team to bring the rich ore back to Sonora Mexico to be processed. It wasn't long before the Apaches decided to raid the miners and steal there goods (1848). After all, that's what the Apaches were best at. They were not ones to settle down and raise crops. Like many of there Native American neighbors did. Some how word got out that the local Apaches had planned to raid the Mexican miners. So they loaded up there mules with the rich ore and headed back to Mexico. They never made home. They were attacked by the Apaches and all but one died in the ambush. The burros loaded with ore scattered every where into the rugged mountains. Only to wander around and die from thirst. This area became know as Goldfield Arizona. As the burros were later found dead with the packs of raw gold ore.

The last Peralta burro to be found with gold concentrate was in 1914. It was found by a guy by the name of C.H. Silverlocke. This find of concentrate was worth a whopping $18,000. A lot of money in 1914.

The last truly known person to find, the Peralta Mine or Lost Dutchman. (Not to sure about this story either.) Was a Army doctor station on the Fort McDowell Indian reservation, east of Scottsdale. On the Verde River. The Apaches were given a reservation by Abraham Lincoln. The Army doctors name was, Dr. Abraham Thorne. He was born in East St. Louis and a friend of Kit Carson. The story goes he always wanted to help The Native Americans out (?). So he was picked to go to the new Apache Reservation. (This reservation does not exist today. Only the Fort McDowell reservation. On the Verde (Green) River) He did so much for the local Apaches. They decided to take him where the Peralta Mine was. For the twenty miles of the journey, he was blind folded. So he wouldn't know the path to the mine. He was taken to the base of Weavers Needle, to where is mine is supposedly hidden. (I've even searched the area. At the base of Weavers Needle, no luck either.) He was allowed to fill his bags with gold nuggets. Which totaled $6,000.

Now comes into play the name Dutchman. For who the infamous mine is named for. Who in fact wasn't even Dutch. He was a German immigrant and his name was Jacob Walz. Arriving in New York from is homeland. (The way folks used to come to America legally!!!) He heard of the gold in North Carolina. From there he ventured to Mississippi, California and Nevada. Seeking his own Mother Load (Gold Strike). He ended up in Arizona, working at the Vulture Mine near Wickenburg Arizona. Rumor has it he was fired for stealing gold from the mine. Walz meet a guy by the name of Jacob Weiser there (German). Walz settled eventually into a area north of the Superstition Mountains. In a area called, 'Rio Satillo Valley'. They he and Weiser began there search for the Peralta Mine. A few years later on, he would show up in the Phoenix area buying drinks with gold nuggets. Claiming he found the infamous mine. Who knows for sure if he and Weiser really did. Jacob Walz died on 25 October 1891. With a bag of rich gold ore under his bed. His lover at the "Time" of death. Was a Mexican widow named, Julia Elena Thomas. She would go on later, to sell maps to the Lost Dutchman Mine.

Iroquois Lacrosse team was denied entry into England. For a World wide Lacrosse tournament. The English government would not recognized there passports. That were not American government issued passports. Instead they were issued by the Iroquois Confederacy. Sad fate to the story. The Iroquois are the ones who invented Lacrosse over, a thousand years ago.

There reservation is located 12 miles south of Albuquerque. The Isleta Native Americans speak Tewa. They were also part of the Great Pueblo Rebellion against the Catholic Spaniards. Who's villages were destroyed by the Spaniards after the rebellion. After the rebellion they took sanctury with the Hopi of Arizona.
