I finally got around to putting together the story of the time when my friend from Tucson along with three partners found a large cache of Gold Bars.

Based on the markings on the bars and the style of cross engraved into a rock at the site (cross over a heart) I believe the cache is of Jesuit origin..


Here is a link to the whole story on my website:

Hope y'all enjoy it.

Great story Mike!

Thanks for sharing it. There is a place just a little North of Tucson and West of I-10 called "Jesuit Hill" on most topo maps. I read somewhere that a lot of Jesuit artifacts (and old mines that are believed to have been Jesuit workings) have been found near Jesuit Hill. If I remember correctly, there is even a local museum that has some of the things found in that area.

If I can find the story I will post a follow-up with more details.
