I saw the post of Don dated 2009. A friend of mine showed me the translation he received from Spain about this mine. He then showed me his home movie that showed the CCDTD rock, eyes of San Ramon carved into a cliff face and the pillar of stone that once held the cross [the square hole where the cross had stood]. He had followed the translation from Spain on locating the mine, telling me where others had missed some vital clues [not shown on Don's printed translation]. He said he had about given up the search until he decipered the vara measurement. He and a friend tried using explosives to find the mine entrance under two centuries of rubble from the blown peaks. I had suggested a different method of locating the mine entrance. He was going to take me with him on his next trip but died of a stroke before I had some free time to go with him. With his death, I wrote down how he had originally found the mine area within a few feet of the entrance.
