But of course...

"Robyn Byrd came to Arizona from Missouri to find the Lost Dutchman's gold mine and told her friends that "God told her where to find it."

http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/story/21302227/2013/02/21/missing-treasu re -hunter-found-delirious-and-injured-in-mountains

"These rescuers say that those hoping to strike it rich won't stop risking their lives in the Superstitions any time soon. "Not until somebody finds that mine, if there is one."
We're told that Byrd had an injury from falling down and was very incoherent when she was found off the trail, but has been recovering all day.
According to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office -- she will not have to pay for the rescue".


Call me crazy, but I think this might have something to do with your treasure-hunter problem.

These are the sort of twits who should be footing the bill for their own damn rescue.

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.


Property maybe but not under the mineral rights law.

Ownership of mineral rights (more properly "mineral interest") is an mineral estate, although often referred to as mineral rights. It is the right of the owner to exploit, mine, and/or produce any or all of the minerals lying below the surface of the property.

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?

if an 8 year old can learn to use these in an afternoon, there's no excuse for getting lost.


Uh, it's not 3D printed, it's not from space, it's not from Apple. LAME.
