From the Author: This book reveals secrets as well as-showing how to read and decode old Spanish, Mexican and European treasure/ hidden mine maps. Actual/real treasure maps are shown and used pinpointing with topo maps and photos seven hidden mines/treasures including the world famous "lost Dutchman mine." Always par for the course is the fact that you can almost always expect the mine/treasure to be located in a rugged area, a wilderness, a desert area or on indian property. The "Lost Dutchman" mine and the "caverna con casa" a.k.a. "Caverna of gold" were found in the early 1980s - and only now the story with pinpoint topos and photos can be told and shown in detail.
It was a sixteen year effort wherein satellite i.r., ground penetrating radar, mass spectrometry, magnetometry, geochemical surveys etc. Etc. Were used in this quest. -But in the final round it was the understanding and decoding of the Spanish and Dutchman's (German) map that led to discovery
If your going for the gold-silver or emeralds anywhere between California and Bogata Columbia, and the Spanish were involved, you must be able to read their coded maps.
All signs, symbols, numbers and words on Spanish maps that are shown "in water" (river, stream lake) is a reverse/mirror image message/instruction. We noted a mirror image message on one of the Spanish maps that said, after reversal, that the Peralta family's home in the early 1800s was in Santa Fe. We found their descendants as well as the Gonzales family. The Peralta and the Gonzales jointly mined the site later to be known as the lost Dutchman. This book is a "must" for serious treasure hunters. Maps containing seven hidden and UNCLAIMED mines and treasures are decoded in detail and pinpointed.
