The image to your right contains spanish treasure symbols carved in stone and the mapping to a treasure site. Can you identify the symbols in the image? To see an example simply move your mouse over the photo on the right. This is a typical Spanish heart cut canyon map in the wilds of the new world and contains numerous pictographic map symbols carved into the rock and formed into the landscape to point the way to several major treasure storage vaults and gold mines hidden in the near by canyons. As you look at the photo you will see a leg and foot from the knee down hanging over the cliff on the far right above the plants. You will also see a double human head with a mustache looking up at the leg, and the other side or back of the head is another bald head looking over at the heart shaped cut entrance to the canyon and the eagles head so they are telling you with symbolism that the heart (Gold) is to be found one leg or (league) to the SOUTH. On the bottom right of the photo you see a mans head in white with a helmet shaped as a birds head. In the center of the photo you have two single beds with a white pillow to catch your attention, and there is a large shadow A on the left of the head of the bed with the pillow. It has a bar entending to the left pointing up hill to show you the direction to the campsite which is one league, or leg, away. Many more spanish treasure symbols carved in stone and pictographic symbols exist in this canyon and once you understand their meanings you will find your way to several gold mines and a few treasure storage rooms. These are the symbolic directions to the Peralta Mines which some have mistakenly referred to as the Lost Dutchman Mine. The color of the stone in the canyon is an exact match for the Peralta Map stones which HSS studied and interpreted to lead them to this location. To better understand signs and symbols click here.
RHOADES CANYON MINE HANNA UTAH
Click on Photo to enlarge
This is a very large mining area with numerous hidden gold and silver mines.
We have been studying the area for a few years now and have made several trips to Utah. This mine site can be identified in an aerial view with a large Indian Head.
As you enter into Rhoades Canyon off highway 35 at the south entrance you cross property owned by Leon Moon called the Moon Ranch. This is where the Spanish set up their first main campsite when they began to prospect the area. Later on it became their main mapping area where they carved the overall map into the stone and sank their first shafts. The main Campsite is marked with a boulder cut into the shape of an easy chair.
There is a cave and mine shaft that is blocked off in this area, and a mine tunnel that was meant to lure anyone getting close to their secret into several death traps in this mine. The outside and inside walls of this tunnel are covered with the carved symbolic maps that lay out the site. They tell of a protective stash of 500 gold bars, and numerous death traps before you get to the tunnel that leads you into the mine.
I noticed this past year that Mr.Leon Moon has been trying to sell his property,The Moon Ranch for $14,000.000. I don't know if anyone has made him aware of the amount of gold and silver bullion that is stashed on his property.
Further into the canyon on the West side you run into what is known as the boulder field. It is in the area covered with trees in front of this boulder field where they have carved the symbol map to tell you that they built a vault system here that contains 1500 bars of Silver awaiting shipment to Mexico.
There is a small area of trees across from the boulder field where they set up their camp and dug a connecting tunnel from the camp to the vault rooms where the silver is stacked up like cordwood.
The Cow, in symbolic terms represents a Mother and the Donkey represents Christ so the mine would be called Mother of Christ or the Virgin Mary mine. The Rock Hammer tells you that the mine is at the back of the Cow. You will have to dig because it has been sealed up and this is where the tools are hidden.
They also show you how they designed two vaults to protect the mine entrance with a Stone Heart up above, pointing at the vaults and then they carved channels into the bedrock that run down from lightning ridge. This is the area in the East where they located a spring so the water would run down these channels and into the first vault until it was full, and then would spill over into the next vault. They marked this area with the Duck Stone to show you where the water was coming from for the vaults.
The side walls of these vaults protects the entrance to the Silver mine which is in the East, and the Gold Mine in the West under the boulder field. This is all protected with very large fall boulder traps and heavy equipment is required to remove them.
These people were masters of illusion and with this Gold mine they set out to hide it in plain sight so they created the illusion that the boulder field was long and flat, although the boulders they placed there were all very large. They were placed on an angle to discourage anyone from attempting to walk anywhere in the area. The boulders were set so the field looked continuous and flat for almost a mile until it reached a bench or small mountain. They also placed a Chair boulder in this field to indicate that you would find a place to sit down at every important compass point intersection.
In the middle of this boulder field there was a large quarry and the walls and bottom of this quarry consisted of stone that was much smaller than what was on top of the field. They are all stacked on top of each other in a precarious position. If you began to dig anywhere the whole thing would collapse and at the bottom end or deepest area of this quarry the entrance to the gold mine was located and sealed. They also placed a white boot across on the other side of the quarry to catch your attention and to tell you the direction to travel and that the measurements are in feet. They dug a tunnel from this entrance to near the entrance of the Silver mine, and built the vault systems to hold water and protect both entrances.
There is also what we call the Albino Stone in white on one of compass bearings on the edge of this quarry which gives you a good view right down to the spot where you see the Wizard looking back at you. The face tells you that you will die if you attempt to enter at this trapped location.
These were master stone masons, artists, botanists and surveyors who could shape a landmass to look like anything they wished. To resemble and create symbolic map markers in stone that could only be seen and understood from a great distance with a telescope.
As you move further into the site on a Northeast bearing you will notice a large heart shaped campsite area and close by to the West you will see a distance marker that shows a man riding a dog coming out of the ground. This is a tunnel entrance and the guard dog tells you it is trapped. Close by to the East you will find a very well hidden entrance to a safe room underground that allows only one person at a time in or out.
Tools are required with heavy equipment to open these tunnels in the safe room, one wrong move and it's all over.
This safe room is 17 feet wide and 50 feet long and has two entrances to the tunnel systems that we have found to date. We expect there is one more well hidden but the room has numerous traps and if they are tripped all persons inside will be killed. The Wizard guards this room and he has a shawl pulled down over his eyes to represent a mask to tell you something is hidden here and also to let you know he is an assassin and you will be dealt with severely if you disturb this area.
This Rhoades Canyon area contains about 30 mines that are all interconnected underground via a main tunnel system. All mines are locked, as is the main tunnel system. Heavy equipment is required along with knowledge of the symbol maps before attempting to open any of them.
There is much more information contained in the Wizard Workshop.

Cave of Silver Bars
MICHAEL PAUL HENSON
AMERICA'S LOST TREASURES (click here to view all books)
Somewhere along the Rio Bonito of south central Lincoln County is a cave reportedly packed with blackened silver ingots. It is said that the treasure was placed there when an expedition transporting it to Mexico was attacked by Indians. Many years later, according to the story, the treasure was discovered by a man named Hawks when he fled into the cave to escape Indians who were pursuing him. After the Indians left the scene, Hawks took out all the bars his mule could carry and concealed the entrance to the cave. He sold his silver bars near Albuquerque. He later tried to find the cave again, but was unsuccessful.

The Search for Sunken Treasure, Exploring the World's Great Shipwrecks
Robert F. Marx with Jenifer Marx

More than 325 documented ships sank around the Cayman Islands, which were in the path of sailing vessels plying between Cuba, the last stop before setting out on the open ocean for Europe, and the Spanish Main. Over the years, amateur and professional divers have discovered a substantial amount of sunken treasure in the Caymans. One of the most valuable and historically important finds was also the most serendipitous. In 1970, a young couple from Dalton, Georgia were snorkeling off the beach in front of the Holiday Inn Hotel on Grand Cayman Island when they spotted a metallic glint on the sandy bottom in water no more than waist deep. To their great astonishment it turned out to be a gold cross covered with diamonds. They began fanning the fine white sand and within minutes had uncovered a few links of what proved to be a thirteen-foot (4-m) gold chain. In spite of their excitement, they managed to keep mum and rented scuba equipment so they could search the area more thoroughly.
What they pulled out of the gin-clear water that day ranks as one of historys most phenomenal treasure finds. Under a thin layer of sand they found a large bar of platinum dated 1521, seven bars of silver, many pieces of silver jewelry and a cache of more than 300 pounds (135 kg) of gold objects, still smooth and shining after centuries underwater. There were heavy gold discs, a gold bracelet in the form of a serpent covered with emeralds, more than fifty gold Aztec figurines and an impressive gold signet ring unmistakably of European origin.
