Camels. It would have camels.....didn't they have camels in the desert West during the Civil War? I'm pretty sure they tried it.

Clint Eastwood could make a cameo appearance....or maybe play the CEO of Wells Fargo, or Abraham Lincoln or some other part appropriate for an old fuck.

I could so write the screenplay for this...if I only knew anything about how to write a screenplay, that is.

During WWII,  Patton had a camel brigade down by Quartzsite.
Every January, there's a gem & mineral show. Some of the still surviving army tankers get together & relive the memories.
Not a bad WWII gig. Weekends in ol' Mexico. Oh yeah....

Yes,
Near the mouth is a mill.
Towards the rear of the canyon is the area where the stage stop was.
There a several rock cabins along the rim of the wash. That's where the hold up took place.

I read that paddlewheel steamboats went up the Colorado to Ft. Yuma in the 1850's. I never even knew about that. So glad you turned me on to that knowledge.. It seems like a forgotten time, almost. That was fuckin' frontier at that time. There 's a good story or a book there for someone to write.

I wonder what it was like to sail the Sea of Cortez back then. Probably a lot more fish.

Those maps are the best.
So basically that sandy area in the center of the wash is the best place to dig about a six foot hole
to drop a strongbox loaded with gold rounds into. The bandits would have hit the stage as it slowed down
in the city limits, grabbed the box & either headed deeper into the canyon with it towards the stage stop or
headed south towards boothill with it. There's soft dirt there as well.

Any questions ?

Any cheap metal detector works best.

There's a tell out here in this soil, in spring time. Its a fluted type of weed that needs gold or its dust
to flourish.

The only weed up on the tailing piles at my mine is this one. If there's a grouping of this weed in the washes that would be a tell.

I'll walk the center of the washes from the robbery point outward in an easterly & southerly direction

Those bandits had to of ratholed that strongbox in the first couple hundred yards.

After all of this activity & no bundle, than I consult the spirit world when I have a hypnosis session. My higher self will hook me up  :icon_mrgreen:

I have no idea, AZ, but I'll bet you have some info that relates it to the Precious Yellow.

Here's what I found on The Google:

Union privates were paid $13 per month until after the final raise on June 20, 1864, when they got $16. In
the infantry and artillery, officers were as follows at the start of the war: colonels, $212; lieutenant colonels,
$181; majors, $169; captains, $115.50; first lieutenants, $105.50; and second lieutenants, $105.50. Other line
and staff officers drew an average of about $15 per month more. Pay for one, two, and three star generals were
$315, $457, and $758, respectively.

The Confederate pay structure was modeled after that of the US Army. Privates continued to be paid at
the prewar rate of $11 per month until June 1864, when the pay of all enlisted men was raised $7 per month.

Of course, the latter got paid in Confederate dollars.

It might be easier if you just load the pics to a cloud storage site for pics and then just embed the URL for the pic in your post.

Union privates were paid $13 per month until after the final raise on June 20, 1864, when they got $16. In
the infantry and artillery, officers were as follows at the start of the war: colonels, $212; lieutenant colonels,
$181; majors, $169; captains, $115.50; first lieutenants, $105.50; and second lieutenants, $105.50. Other line
and staff officers drew an average of about $15 per month more. Pay for one, two, and three star generals were
$315, $457, and $758, respectively.

The Confederate pay structure was modeled after that of the US Army. Privates continued to be paid at
the prewar rate of $11 per month until June 1864, when the pay of all enlisted men was raised $7 per month.

Of course, the latter got paid in Confederate dollars.


In $3, & greater denominations of gold coin values that could make sense.
The box could hold payroll for the entire fort.

I'll stick to the flat ground in the wash.  No way I am riding on those trails.

I thought of another way to keep a large portion of the Gold for yourself legally, IF you actually locate it.

Write the following letter to Wells Fargo:

We have ascertained the location of an 1860 shipment of Gold Coins buried in AZ.  They remain buried there and are not in our possession.  We will dig them up and return them to Wells Fargo for a 50% Finder's Fee of half of the coins recovered.  We will not excavate them otherwise, and they will remain buried until the SUN Goes Red Giant.

One serious note here...

When I was looking through the u tube vids of the area, I ran across some vids that dealt with
a rare breed of mustang that lives in this mountain range according to the horse people around here.
When the Spaniards came through in the 1500's some of their horses became isolated in this mountain range
and to this day live & breed & thrive in isolation.
If your interested,  just use Cerbat wild mustangs.

Nor really a "find".  I actually saw this film in the theater when it came out in 1969.

Lots of choices when it comes to metal detectors. You can spend $600 to $6000.  Good depth penetration is what you need for finding buried caches. They make gold specific ones, but apparently coins are often found inside iron boxes, so depth trumps specificity from what I've read.

I bought a new one back in '06 I believe.
Had to pawn it when times got tough post real estate era.
All I need is an El-Cheapo that rings when it sniffs Au.
The strong box size/dimensions were posted on the post here from the treasure hunter crowd.
If the photo there is of a real box used back in the day it is no-more.
I've done some relic hunting further back into the range up near the Golconda Mine. Found a rifle barrel still in tact, a lantern, heals of shoes,
and pans. Loads of Prince Albert tins, & bean cans. Those make nice mobiles or wind chimes for a rustic back porch look.
Hang them with fishing line on old rotted out Cholla cactus.
