Arizona Gold Placers and Spanish Legends

Here is my latest article tying together Spanish lost mine legends and proximate locations of actual gold finds in Arizona. Arizona has had a long mining history, and while the amount of gold discovered by the Spaniards in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries may not have been huge (much more silver was discovered than gold), the 19th century began a boom. The state is full of placer locations that recreational prospectors who belong to clubs may enjoy. There are only 2 publicly accessible placers in the state. But the dues for club membership range from $75 and up. There should be plenty of clubs with yearly fees that are acceptable to most.
