Gold in Arizona’s Superstition Mountains – Where to find it

Gold nuggets are tough to find, but weekend warriors “prospectors” search the desert washes and some get lucky every week.

Gold is not moving too far from its source unless there’s been lots of water to wash it downhill. Many prospectors are looking for these wadis at the foot of Arizona’s Superstition Mountains. Flood water washed nuggets down the mountain and deposited the gold nuggets along the mountains. A hefty percentage of the world’s gold is still out there. It was stated that the first Gold was found near where Steimle stood, what was the largest and richest in Arizona and in the Southeast.

Gold-QuartzGold is still found in the desert and moving water after a big storm has been the most potent factor of placing and finding new gold pockets. Seeking gold along watercourses, dry out stream beds and sand bars. Gold is heavier than most material and rich pockets of gold are tend to settle to bedrocks.

Many have attempted to find gold and some are still looking for the Lost Dutchman’s Mine.

The Lost Dutchman Legend

ONE HOT June day in 1931 a sixty-five-year-old man, crippled, and walking with a cane was guided into the lonely reaches of Arizona’s Superstition Mountain by two cowhands from a neighboring ranch. Adolph Ruth, a retired civil servant from Washington, D. C. was not a greenhorn prospector; he had in fact broken his leg some years earlier while searching for a California mine which, ironically, may have been the Lost Pegleg. Though the fracture had been a bad one, Ruth did not forswear his interest in lost mines; he knew little of the Arizona mountains, but he had what he thought were compelling clues to the location of a famous gold mine within the Superstition range. When two weeks had passed and the elderly adventurer did not return, searching parties were formed and the mountains were battered. It was six months before his ultimate fate was discovered.

SUPERSTITIONS ArizonaFirst a skull, then later a skeleton, was found. The personal effects and physical evidence proved the remains to be those of the unfortunate Ruth. News accounts of the discovery contained much speculation that the explorer had been near to finding the famous Lost Dutchman Mine. The mention of the fabled mine, plus the horrifying fact that the victim had apparently been beheaded, resulted in extensive press coverage of the event. With the death of Ruth, the modern legend of Superstition Mountain was established, and continues to grow with subsequent killings and shooting affrays in the years since, for it is the astonishing number of murders, some of them unsolved, that has; given the Superstition story its added dimension of danger and mystery.

The American West abounded in legends of lost mines and buried treasure, real and imaginary, but nowhere, perhaps not even in the Klondike of Dangerous Dan McGrew, have so many men apparently lost their lives. A rigid orthodoxy binds the telling of tales of lost mines. The plots are as stereotyped as soap opera stories, and the many variations on the Lost Dutchman theme embody all that is typical in Western dramaturgy. White-bearded prospectors, treacherous Indians, perfidious white men, lost gold, stolen maps, with murders, massacres, and mystery enough to satisfy a whole generation of television writers. The “Dutchman” was actually a German immigrant named Jacob Walzer, known locally by a variety of names such as “Old Snowbeard,” or simply “Jake.”

He died in 1891 and is buried in an unmarked grave in a Phoenix cemetery after thoroughly mystifying the residents of that city for over 20 years. It was Walzer’s practice, particularly after partaking liberally of Phoenix beer, of boasting about his rich mine in the Superstitions that focused attention on that particular range as a possible gold site. His stories, embellished and distorted by succeeding generations of tale-spinners, have become the legend of the Lost Dutchman. In it usual telling, the mine was originally discovered by the Peralta family of Sonora, Mexico.

weavers needleWorking in the vicinity of Superstition Mountain in the 1840s, they are thought to have developed some highly productive gold deposits. With the pending transfer of southern Arizona to U. S. jurisdiction in 1848, the Peraltas are said to have assembled a large number of Mexican workers to recover as much as possible from their mines before the territory became overrun with Americans. Unluckily, the sudden appearance of such large numbers of men and animals caused the fierce Apache residents of the region to conclude that their mountain stronghold was being invaded. Shortly after the arrival of the large mining party under the command of Miguel Peralta, Apache bands began a series of merciless raids. The Mexicans, unable to withstand the massive assault, fled frantically with their pack mules and their gold, attempting to reach the safety of the flatlands at the northwest end of the Superstition Range. They were cut off, so the story goes, and died virtually to the last man after a pathetic last stand in a steep box canyon at the northwest end of the mountain. After this massacre of 1848, the Indians held the mountains uncontested for nearly 20 years, though a few adventurers reportedly found encouraging signs of gold during this period of Apache occupation. Several fanciful anecdotes relate to this time, with references to Weaver’s Needle as a conspicuous landmark near the alleged gold strikes.

For one improbable reason or another, none of these latter finders ever returned to file a claim. Jacob Walzer appears in the story in the late 1860s after reportedly having worked for a time at the great Vulture Mine in Wickenburg. With a fellow miner named Weiser, he made his way southeast towards Florence, Arizona, now the county seat of Pinal County. Somewhere along the way the two Germans are presumed to have found the fabled gold deposit, a strike of such incredible richness that milling was not required— the gold could be recovered by hand crushing and sorting methods! According to one account, the two partners worked their mine in peace until about 1879, when the unpredictable Apaches struck once more, this time killing Weiser. (Other sources confidentially tell that old Jacob murdered his partner, later placing the blame on the Indians.) Walzer managed to escape from the mountains after first carefully concealing all signs of the mine.

Crushed in spirit following the death of his partner, Walzer settled in Phoenix, returning to the gold mine only a few times to retrieve portions of the caches of selected ores which he and Weiser had accumulated during happier days. It is reported that when the old miner set out for the Mountain, some 40 miles way, he was followed by hordes of Phoenicians bent on discovering the location of his great mine. Somehow, the foxy Walzer invariably managed to elude his pursuers and return to the city with a fresh supply of gold. After his death in 1891, friends of old Jacob tried without success to follow the few vague hints and clues that he had given of the location of the great bonanza. Some accounts describe a map initially granted to Walzer’s housekeeper but later stolen. Dozens of bogus copies of this “map” have been sold over the last half century, some for hundreds of dollars, some for lost lives. With the unexplained killings in the decades after the Dutchman’s death, the legend has come to include other fantastic details, such as an assertion that an Apache curse hangs on Superstition Mountain, causing death to overtake those who venture too close to the location of the lost gold. Some have contended that Apache tribesmen actually work the mine, but are careful to dispatch any outsider who ventures close to their operations. I have spent much time in Arizona attempting to authenticate these legends. I have been through the files of the two Phoenix dailies and have interviewed the coroner in Apache Junction, Judge Norman Teason. I have talked to mountain guides and wranglers, to local law-enforcement officers, and to members of the Sheriff’s Posse of Pinal County. Further, I have been the length and breadth of the mountain area itself, both on horseback and afoot on seven different occasions.

The Great Gold Hunt

Taking the various facets of the Dutchman tale in sequence, one might first ask whether the area was ever productive of gold. The answer is yes, for there are two formerly active mines within five miles of Apache Junction, the Mammoth and the Bluebell, which can be seen today. Neither is in the mountain area itself, however. Did the “Dutchman,” Jacob Walzer, actually exist and did he have gold? Again yes, in both instances, though he probably had only small amounts of gold to augment his meager income during the last years of his life in Phoenix. Walzer, it will be recalled, had worked at the Vulture mine in Wickenburg and it is likely that he was obliged to leave his employment there in some haste because of the strong suspicion of the mine operators that he was “high grading” the better or samples for his own purposes. It seems probable that when he eventually sold these pickings, he used the Superstition story as a blind to cover the actual facts.

The Great Gold Hunt_Front_NEWWalzer died poor, and it is hard to believe that he would not have patented any claim he had and thus lived the real life as did his fellow immigrant, Henry Wickenburg. What of the hundreds of murders? Who has been, or is now responsible for such wholesale slaughter? By careful searching, I can find proof of approximately 21 actual homicides, and of these there are about a half-dozen still unsolved. I could find no real evidence that anyone had been beheaded though skeletal remains have in some instances been found widely scattered. It must be remembered that man does not have the desert to himself; the coyote, the skunk, the rat, and the mountain lion have enormous appetites and though they will not attack a living man, they most assuredly do not respect the dead. In his recent book, Hunting Lost Mines by Helicopter, writer – adventurer Erie Stanley Gardner wrote that he had been informed of more than 350 unexplained deaths in the Superstitions, but some of these could have been due to exposure, accident or natural causes.

As for the Indians, there are no North American tribes, including the Apache groups, who appear to have engaged in gold mining. I can readily believe that the Peraltas had their troubles with the Apaches, but no lawman whom I have interviewed has the least suspicion that recent Superstition murders were committed by Indians. Are the mountains then safe enough? Though I have never encountered any difficulty personally, I have met a few citizens in the backcountry who did not seem altogether saintly, and some had the unmistakable glint of madness in their eyes. The Superstition region is the only place, outside of a Hollywood sound stage, where I have seen prospectors actually wearing side arms or carrying rifles. It is probable that most men who have come to grief in the mountain have been victims of the natural hazards to be confronted in any remote desert mountain area; snakebite, exhaustion, sunstroke, coronary disease, thirst, or accidental injury. I could find no documented instance where a party of men or even just a twosome, has sustained gunshot wounds. Virtually all of the murder victims have either entered the area alone or had become separated from their colleagues.

If ordinary caution is exercised, there should be a small risk for a party of healthy and intelligent adults venturing into the region. Certainly the beauty of the countryside is unsurpassed and completely unspoiled. Traveling the canyon trails, you have the sensation of timelessness, of being in another, and happier, century. Even in a state celebrated for its spectacular views, it would be hard to find more impressive mountain scenery or more varied desert flora. By any standard, the ideal method of seeing the inner canyons of Superstition is on horseback, accompanied by guides from nearby Apache Junction. Since no form of motorized transport is permitted in the Wilderness Area, the choice is either to walk or ride a horse. I have tried both, and I vote for the saddle rather than the boots, though, either way, one may acquire blisters one place or another. Only two feasible routes are leading into the inner reaches of the mountain. The southeast approach via well-marked trail is known as the “Don’s Route” and involves a relatively steep climb for about three miles. At the northwest end of the range, a habitation known The great Gold Hunt_Amazonas First Water Ranch marks the start of an easy trail that winds for approximately seven miles up to the Needle. At the western slope of this imposing spire are a permanent spring and a pretty glade suitable for either camping or a lunch stop. The following trip is an easy route thoroughly pleasant one by horseback, and can be completed, in and out, in one day. It is the preferred route, in my estimation, for women and older children, providing of course they are able to sit a horse.

Overnight forays and hiking away from the marked trail is definitely man’s work, and for those sound in lung and leg. However you go, the trip is worthwhile. And, in spite of evidence which suggests the Old Dutchman was a high-grade rather than the possessor of a secret mine, there’s enough doubt to take a chance on finding it yourself. Who knows? You might stumble on one even the Old Dutchman didn’t find!

Curious Facts

The Secret Plan of Napoleon Bonaparte

One of the greatest military leaders and a genius, Napoleon Bonaparte, had an enormous treasure stored away in Paris. His private secretary has documented the total amount of gold and jewels, and Napoleons personal collection of over one hundred gold snuff boxes. As Napoleon returned from Waterloo to Paris, his private treasure was loaded onto horse carriages protected by Napoleons private guard.

Napoleons Order

A limited group of military friends was in charge to escort the treasure out of France and hid it. At the same time, a small group of family and friends was to accompany Napoleon out of Europe into the United States. The Emperor was unable to flee and gave himself up to the British to allow for his brother and some friends to leave France undetected. His brother and several friends of Napoleon purchased several properties in America, including a house in Cap Vincent, New York, at the foot of the Thousand Islands, where the waters of Lake Ontario become the Saint Lawrence River and a large estate on the banks of the Delaware at Bordentown, New Jersey.

It was there that they hoped Napoleon would stay in a temporary exile once past the British blockade and to eventually return to France to reclaim his throne. The treasure was well hidden, his location known by just a few, waiting for Napoleons return. However, Napoleon never escaped from Saint Helena and died in 1821 as a prisoner of the British.

We know as a fact that the well-documented treasure was never seen after Napoleon left Paris, nor have pieces ever surfaced.

When he returned to Paris after the Russian operation, Napoleon placed a large map of the United States on the table and said to his elder brother, “Joseph, it is very plausible, that in not so distant future, we both will seek an asylum in the United States. Come, let us look at the map for the greatest spot.”

It is very unlikely that Napoleons ever planned to have his treasure brought into the United States. It is clear that the treasure was brought out of France and is still waiting for the day to be discovered.

All the lights that we can not seeFrom the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. More and more aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge.

Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist,All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).

With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.
