"I am a little surprised that we haven't had someone come forward and say they found it with Google Earth, YET. "



Now that you have been there can you easily see it on google earth?

Welcome to the forums Phillip!

Sorry I did not catch this for so long, but if you are still reading the forum, the answer is no. Tunnels do not show up well on satellite or aerial photos anyway, not even those which are not concealed in any way. I have made the offer before, to anyone who wished to try , if you write me privately with the coordinates saying you can see the mine from Google Earth or any satellite photo I will let you know if you got it right. So far no one ever sent me any coordinates at all.

Good luck and good hunting, I hope you find the treasures that you seek.

Does it look like this?

Side thing but I saw NO giant Saguaro anywhere near it, so am not too sure about that "clue".

What is the biggest nugget you have found by the Arch in the wash?

You can not see it from google earth. It is in the bottom of a deep wash. You have to walk up the wash and over some slippery rocks and around a bend then you can see it. Just like in the stories. Next to a little black butte.
