What?! This is so cool! Bonus points for the education on the proper spelling of 'mother lode' - I always assumed it was 'load'. Great post!

Are there stories about anyone who has tried to find the treasure? Has anyone come close?

Hi Keli,

No one has come close yet but hundreds (if not thousands) have cast their lot to try and unearth the treasure. In fact, one unfortunate fellow actually perished trying to find it.

Hmmm... I haven't had much luck tracking down the Lost Dutchman mine. Perhaps it's time I set my sights on a new target...

How cool is this!

What an awesome story!
