Speaker2Animals: God told her to find it? Let him rescue her next time.
jtown: Suppose she finds it. What then? The rightful owners will claim it and she gets nothing. It's either going to be on public land and the government will claim it or it'll be on private land and the owner of the mineral rights will claim it.
fnordest: When I first moved to Arizona I was told not to go there because of the old prospectors that had been up in the mountains for years. It was said that newbies looking for the mine would never be seen or heard of again. (Plain English: They'd kill anyone who got near their search area)I believe that sometime in the eighties they made it against the law to start anew prospecting for the mine. The old timers were supposedly grandfathered (apt name) in because no one would go tell them they had to come down.I have hunted the area at the base of the mountain for years and know it well. I still see hikers wander into the area.All said, there's no excuse for not going into the desert/mountains unprepared. Did she never hear of a GPS?/Compass shown above is old school//I'm open to hear if anyone can say it has any advantage
