How to find a Spanish Gold Mine
How to find a Spanish Gold Mine. The Spanish used the mask to show that something was hidden and it would be carved into stone. Once we located this mask we realized it was sending us South to search for stone symbols telling us about a Gold mine and its location. We were walking along the Appalachian Trail at the time so it would be necessary to follow the nearest water source down the mountain checking for symbol stones but Russ decided to find a place for a beer supply and a way he could drive along the bottom of the mountain. I was OK with that as long as he could spot some of the symbol stones I told him to be aware of. He spotted the warning symbol right off the bat, a big dog.
We went South looking for other symbol stones and discovered the beginning symbol to the Gold mining site, a large dog stone that looked like the head of a bull dog. The Spanish used the dog as a symbol for a guard dog. It’s meaning was that this was a Royal Spanish Gold mining site and it was protected with death traps marked with the dog symbol. Notice the head in the water with sunglasses on its face, this represents a mask for something hidden. The Spanish were terrific artists in stone and on the landmass and were capable of creating any image to impress upon the viewer what they wanted to say.
This is the bulldog stone from a distance and behind it sits a pigeon stone. When you begin this search you must view the total area around a symbol including in the water for subtle directions to your next set of symbols.The basic premise was a map was being created, find all the symbol stones which were map points and read the information included with them and you will be able to find the Gold mine. The locating and explaining of all the symbolism is so intense and frustrating at times that it will need numerous marked photos to show you how they hid the information.
This symbol stone was just West of the Pigeon and dog stone and contained well hidden information that told us to keep an eye out for a saddle.
We finally found the saddle stone at the junction of the two creeks to the West of the dog, We had discovered a small stone earlier that had told us to watch out for a saddle as we went along. One creek called Blood creek ran from the North and the other called Dicks creek ran from the West. The saddle was pointed SW in front and NE at the back of the saddle and was placed in the NW corner of Dicks creek where it met Blood mountain creek. Now we were in the map area of the Gold mine and discovered numerous other symbol stones which we will show you here.
We also discovered a date of 1557 on a stone and info about Indians and sickness which was represented by a black horse coming from the North. But I think the date was for when the mine was first discovered. There may have been information here about the mining operations over the years that I missed seeing. The saddle represents the Royal Road which was the only way treasure was allowed to be removed from the area for the King on pain of death. It was usually the most secure route with lots of areas of good defense should they be attacked. this was not the only date we ran into so they were telling a whole story here that you had to put together with the dates. They also had 1699 and a tale of several Indian bands at war with each other. Then they mention 1715 and show a lot of people walking along a large skull, Adrienne thinks they are referring to a shipwreck and the dead. As I read it I think she may be right. They refer to the King of the Appalachian Indians allowing people to come in and stay at his camp but many of them are very sick.
We discovered the # 1 campsite on the South side before we hit the junction of the creeks travelling West. It was loaded with a lot of symbolism and showed a 7 for campsite and Gold. It was very distinctive and stood out from a distance with all its symbols. It also had the 7 standing on a birds beak which represents a change of direction at this point, a heart was concealed to the right of the 7 on the chair which represents campsite with numerous other symbols so we knew this was a very important camp. We still had not reached the junction of the streams yet and planned on going North on Blood creek first and then coming back to inspect Dicks creek to the West. (campsite # 1) The 7 is actually a right hand holding a white bar which is a symbol for five and the right hand is an oath: As God is my witness this is the truth!
About 150 feet from the egg stone in Blood mountain creek we discovered the Boar stone which represents a soldier guard that comes crashing out of the bush to kill anyone messing with a Gold mine site. There is such a tremendous amount of symbolism associated with this symbol stone that it will require many hours of study to understand it all. The stone just behind it that is round represents a tunnel and has a 5 with a 3 at the bottom and a bar beside it for 5 as well so they are telling you to go to the 355 degrees. The coloration below it is Gold but hard to see.
At this point we took direction from the symbolism on the chair stone and went across the creek to the NE and discovered a well hidden dry creek bed with another hidden chair for a campsite at this spot which I was thinking set up a triangle with the three camps. This one was on the 70 degrees and the dry creek bed had been filled in with lots of small river worn boulders and covered with leaves and brush, it was about 4 ft wide and dropped off a small cliff to run into Blood mountain creek on the 250 degrees. I felt this creek must have been a source for Gold at some point and they changed the direction of the water flow to make it dry up so they could work it. All of a sudden we began running into lots of other symbol stones as we began to understand what the Spanish were trying to tell us about this mining site. (campsite 3)
Once we started working with the skull stone they kept telling us with symbolism to go back on the 70 deg line from the dry creek chair which would be the 250 deg line and it runs down thru the area of the egg stone. What a surprise we got here. It took us to a very large shelter stone which is very famous in symbolism circles for a place to hide treasure. We found they had back filled a tunnel they had dug under the shelter stone. This stone seemed to be the main talking board with tons of symbols added to it and the surrounding area. I also noted that it was a large death trap and had other small traps associated with it so we needed to be very careful. This first photo is a distance shot. Next is a closeup and then a distance shot which shows a gravestone in front of the shelter, John is shown in the last photo under the shelter. I knew we had the main map stone with this one because the symbolism here was sending us in multiple directions to visit other areas with directional symbol stones. We were going to be in this area for quite a while studying this important information to locate the gold mine entrance. Notice the white C which is the nose area on a face the stone represents. There is also a 7 and a 15 with a degree mark on the side of the stone which stood for a camp on the 15 degrees to the left of this stone E where we found a large Heart stone which stands for Gold. Positive identification of a Gold mine!
