    They have to use clickbait now ! He has never found anything or proven anything !

  2. @rickmessina5396 on January 11, 2024 at 9:06 am

    My theory is the mine has been hidden by an earthquake. Yes, geology will be what helps find the mine……..

    Yeaaaaaaaaaaah Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight……..

    If the native Americans took the gold I believe they would have thrown it in a hole and covered it

    I found the Lost Dutchman Peralta mines in 2016, my story published on the cover of Lost Treasure Magazine June 2016.
    These old dutchhnters refuse to accept that the mine has been found in the Bradshaw mountains.
    The mine is over 500 years old, the date carved in stone at the mine is 1541. The date on the Peralta Burbridge map is 1753. I cannot believe how I am finding out thru this experience that everyone in archeology, history, the universities and government is a beaurocrat. Only trying to cover up my discovery as if they own the legend. Because of this absolutely assenine cover up, more people who don’t know that the mine has been found….will die searching for it. The three Spanish maps that I have solved are the Peralta stones, the Peralta deerskin map, and the Peralta Burbridge map of 1753. All three of the maps have been in Arizona museums for decades. Since I solved the maps, they were removed from the Mesa Museum of Natural History by snobby archeologists who had me police trespassed from the museum. They now sit in the garage of one of these gentlemen, (not), who think they own the legend. Absolutely unbelievable complete BS.

    There’s no way that guy could’ve picked up a sack of gold ore that big that easy if at all in the opening reenactment scene.

  10. @reinc83 on January 11, 2024 at 9:20 am

    That dude at the beginning was getting ripped off on his purchases.

  11. @susanschuetze2645 on January 11, 2024 at 9:21 am

    As a native of Arizona, if the Lost Dutchman Mine had been found, it would have been a big story in this state.

  12. @TheBlindbowman on January 11, 2024 at 9:21 am

    Ron sorry but that is not true of the LDM . it does not fit the geology of the mountains as we know them .. nothing like goldfield or the wasp … i have seen the mine up close . and if your using those other mines to find the LDM your fooling yourself .. nothing like those mines .. but Ron you are 100% correct the stones do not locate the LDM ..Scott you could walk around those mountains for the next 100 years and you will never find that mine i am 100% sure of that . i grew up hunting gem and ore sites with my dad , a skilled rockhood …you don’t get it yet this mine is not a normal deposit…i found 321 other mines within 6 miles of the LDM and none of them are anything like the LDM .. that double circle is not the symbolic for gold . he is out right 100% wrong,: i hunted for the hoya for over 20 years ,i had first read about the store of the legend in 1967 . and my father got the Killer mountains in 1968 … i have spent my life researching every inch of those legends .. and what you don’t know will take you miles out into nowhere .you have to search everything .it’s not what most think it is .. did Waltz have 3 caches YES ,did he know where the mine was YES , did he ever work the mine ..NO .. he took the mine in 1878 the mexicans that had the mine .maybe the Peralta maybe not , just 3 mexicans . they were working the mine it self but they had about 400 lbs of hand picked ore in sacks . that’s what all this legend can tell you …Waltz never work the mine IMHO he did hide the ore caches 2 of them the largest was about 200 lbs it is closer to the mine near the mexicans camp .. the other small cache still out there about a few miles from the larger cache and the last cache was walt packed out about 100 lbs of ore . he never had more than 100 lbs removed from the mountains ,i know where the caches are and how to find them but i have a lot of unanswered questions still even after i found the mine i have been searching the mine for the last 25 years ..i have enough evidence to open the mine but i don’t have enough money to get back to AZ . i live in upstate NY and i almost bankrupted myself on the first 6 expeditions , but when i can i am going back one more time on the 7th expeditions…you will never find that mine .. not in 20 life times . it is just to well hidden …the Mammoth mine has nothing to do with the LDM …none of the known mines have anything to do with the LDM , it is isolated by it self …it is in no way linked to any other mine … and yes my brother past away after having heart problems in those mountains ..the curse took 7 years to kill him so yes the curse is personal to me ..

  13. @ramonamom1 on January 11, 2024 at 9:21 am

    Click bait indeed.

  14. @kurtb8474 on January 11, 2024 at 9:22 am

    The guy was giving handfuls of gold. From what I learned in school. a pinch of gold was worth about a dollar. This looked like he was putting out a few thousand bucks for everything he bought. Quite a tip.

  15. @gardinerb2 on January 11, 2024 at 9:23 am

    I love those mountains and miss it and hiking in the mountains with my dad and brothers and we moved to Louisiana 1996 and I had not been back to the mountains and I really want to take my son but injuries from the middle east keep me from going back there

  16. @douglasalfseike3867 on January 11, 2024 at 9:23 am

    Scott Wolther couldn’t find the Burrows cave in Illinois and it was easy to find! The show is a whole lot of fluff!

  17. @josephshultz6726 on January 11, 2024 at 9:29 am

    An even bigger mystery is why was a German called a Dutchman?

  18. @jampasurprenant1794 on January 11, 2024 at 9:30 am

    Wow that’s was just too bad Scott Walter did find anything.

  19. @meranberwyck7775 on January 11, 2024 at 9:30 am

    click bait

  20. @solanaceae2069 on January 11, 2024 at 9:30 am

    Spent time in the Superstitions. Bring water or don’t go there.

  21. @jinjerfanatic1372 on January 11, 2024 at 9:30 am

    This guy is just as bad as Josh Gates , neither one could find gold in a JEWELRY STORE…

  22. @Amanda-yf7vj on January 11, 2024 at 9:31 am

    So dramatic!!! Geez

  23. @dannylo5875 on January 11, 2024 at 9:32 am

    It’s real but the location is probably not in Arizona, probably the individual crossed into a Gold rich vein area even further south, got disoriented and it wasn’t in Arizona…thats the first clue. My grandpa used to tell md that he knew formations where Gold could be simply picked up in chunks or Nuggets from the wall of a canyon. That is an indication that vein is there present…or multiple different ones. Presence of lithium aa well and other rare metals and earths

  24. @ambramarrs7325 on January 11, 2024 at 9:32 am

    I’m sorry, but so much of this seems so set up and fake- first, NO ONE would go out without a hat and appropriate clothing in that heat- especially, a fair hair- 2nd, the snake scene seemed staged.

  25. @alphawolf7400 on January 11, 2024 at 9:36 am

    I’m yet to see an episode this guy finds anything

  26. @Sam-gy5rb on January 11, 2024 at 9:37 am

    Click baiting i wonder why this channel is completely dead 💀💀

  27. @DrLeroyGreen on January 11, 2024 at 9:37 am

    The origin and WHY it’s found with quartz is a truly dazzling.
    It’s star stuff slowly cooled in veins of quartz BILLIONS of years ago.

  28. @keithharris7365 on January 11, 2024 at 9:37 am

    Awesome show

  29. @Ilikecake247 on January 11, 2024 at 9:39 am

    I dated a chick that worked at The Flame in AJ. Almost fell in love. North east of the mountains are where the golds at.

  30. @loribeugnot7895 on January 11, 2024 at 9:40 am

    I lived across the street when i was 15 for a year. The guys would go up almost every day. So beautiful we stayed on the Government property there were people canping up and down both sides of the wash. They found coins. Said they went inside obe of the caves half way up and inside it dropped down so far they couldnt go down. Not enough gear it was 1982. Best time of my life! He wouldnt let me go up pn the mountain i was a runaway.

  31. @AncientWonderX on January 11, 2024 at 9:41 am

    If this discovery of the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine is confirmed, it could be one of the biggest historical finds in the Southwest. The legend has always been a mix of hope and mystery.

  32. @waywardwoodward on January 11, 2024 at 9:41 am

    I already found it. 🙊

  33. @jonnieb4 on January 11, 2024 at 9:46 am

    It’s in la barge canyon in the superstition mountain

  34. @DCANIMAL-skates on January 11, 2024 at 9:47 am

    Deutsch not Dutch

  35. @HouseOfMoths on January 11, 2024 at 9:48 am


    Might be petrified titan head

  36. @biskienator on January 11, 2024 at 9:49 am

    aaaand ANOTHER 45 minutes of maybe, what if, it could be, that always ends with "well we didn’t find anything certain but we’ll keep looking"

  37. @noleftturns on January 11, 2024 at 9:49 am

    Fake YouTube title – should be taken down…

  38. @jasonllewellyn7611 on January 11, 2024 at 9:50 am

    I live in Arizona. No it’s never been found, and it’s most likely a myth

  39. @ttrguy9952 on January 11, 2024 at 9:50 am

    I didn’t see the cameraman with his tripod with his macro lens as he walked down the hill which was filmed by a more distant cameraman when he was spooked by the rattlesnake when he said "Whoa!" Sneaky cameramen…. 🤣😂😮

  40. @user-mw5ys5wo3q on January 11, 2024 at 9:50 am

    I found it, I use to talk to scott wolter, I tried to tell him he made a mistake saying this and I haven’t talked to him since, he found that rock and said he found the mine, nonsense. What else has he lied about, it’s a shame, people have died looking for the lost dutchman, but he said he found it by picking up that rock, I can prove my point. 😊

  41. @Noruto1 on January 11, 2024 at 9:52 am

    Out of all my years I watch similar shows just like this and out of all the shows they never find nothing waste of time when you come up with a show that you actually find something

  42. @daveslocum3270 on January 11, 2024 at 9:53 am

    i live within site of these mountains
    if the mine had been found trust me the whole state would know
    history channel run by democrats…..doing their best to wipe out real history
    and replace it with fake history just like fake news fake politicians and so on
    see the connection??

  43. @rolandjenkins7515 on January 11, 2024 at 9:57 am

    If you find the lost Dutchman mine, you also have found sasquatch.

  44. @NashPotatoesOutdoorShow on January 11, 2024 at 9:58 am

    Great video, but the ending leaves a lot to be desired!

  45. @adamevans6703 on January 11, 2024 at 9:59 am

    Wow what a breakthrough…. a walk in the dessert

  46. @Rod-yw6gj on January 11, 2024 at 9:59 am

    History Channel should make a show about this! 😐 L M F A O

  47. @CarlosBenjamin on January 11, 2024 at 9:59 am

    How could you say the deathbed revelation isn’t credible because no one has found the mine? Every story I’ve heard says that the person he revealed it to celebrated that very night and got so drunk they could not remember what they’d been told.

  48. @jsmith2462 on January 11, 2024 at 10:00 am


  49. @wehausenphx3575 on January 11, 2024 at 10:00 am

    Those mountains are beautiful but protected and sacred to my people
