Re: [ALL TREASURE TALES USA ] TREASURE HUNTER NEEDS ASSISTANCE
- Hey Larry,
Thanks bro and don't think just cuz its an old shite hole that there
ain't treasure down there. Several of my buds here in the Mother Lode
have recovered valuable bottles, guns and other treasures from below
the ol' privey. In 2003 or 2004 I wrote an article for Lost Treasure
about a guy in San Francisco who recovered 2 late 19th century glass
skeets. Since skeets were manufactured to be distroyed very few of
these old glass type exist. I don't recall but he either sold them for
$18,000. each or for both. Either way I'd call em' a treasure.
I will pass your reply on to this man.

> Hi Hangman, how ya doing . Ok, i don't have any idea if I'm on the
right track or not but here goes.Some years ago i found something very
similar to the description of this site in the Forks of Salmon area
north of the Trinity Alps in northern California . I couldn't see a
thing when I shined a light down,and when I threw rocks down , nothing
, even to the sides . So the only thing to do , open it up . The area
for those of you that aren't familiar with it was the second largest
gold producing area in California , the first of course being the
mother load area . So there is allot of old mines scattered throughout
. What my discovery turned out to be was the site of one of those old
mining camps which later on through the years became an old logging
camp . And as it turned out these ole boy's kept digging new outhouse
holes when the old one got full . Eventually after close to 75 years
every thing ceased, and the last hole was sealed , so bringing to the
end of what could be
> considered probably a 30 to 50 holer outhouse ! Well it turned out
that over all the years since the walls sluft in creating a giant of a
hole something in the neighborhood of a giant sink hole . Which is
what the forestry dept.labled it when they filled it in.The reason i
couldn't hear the rocks? the dirt was damp and sort of absorbed the
rocks when they hit . It was quite a work out opening it up, with the
help of the forestry it got opened and then closed . I hope what you
got their is something better....Good Hunting...Larry B
