Egyptian-Looking Artifact in Ecuador Photos & More News
April 05, 2016
It is good to be back with you again after some absence. First off, I am trying out a new newsletter format today and I have my fingers crossed that it will work out. With my HTML programming ability, there is about a 50/50 chance of success (perhaps even less). Anyway, please bear with me as I work on making changes and upgrades to this newsletter, our Club House and the website.
As you may have noticed (or will notice), I have been working on improvements to our virtual Club House. I cleaned up and added to the Video Training room a bit and focused on eight different ways and places to find gold. Some of these ways do not depend on where you live, so there is something in there for everyone. Take a look at the new Video Training Room.
Also, I have added a ton of content to The Wealthy Explorer flip magazine in the Reading Room. There must be something in there of interest to you as I was sure to include a wide variety of adventure-related stories. Visit the Reading Room.
Lastly, and most importantly to me, is the addition of an extra Club House room connected to the Adventurer Tools room. This new room is devoted to the Lab Notes of one of our special members, Patricia Thacke. As I have mentioned before in my blog, Patricia has a most unique and interesting history in the business of precious metals mining and complex ore extractions. Her Lab Notes include a little of her history and background too.
Please Note: Patricia’s Lab Notes are copyrighted and for the exclusive use of our Club members. Please do not share this proprietary information with outsiders. Thank you. If you have any questions for Patricia, you can ask them in our Community Forum. We will do our best to answer most questions within a week or so, depending on Patricia’s schedule. Visit the Adventurer Tools room.
This week’s interesting story is of the discovery of a single cache of nearly a ton of Iron Age coins, worth about $15 million. Two guys with metal detectors made this amazing discovery. They had been searching for this treasure for three decades! There is nothing like persistence.
If you would like to read of this story in more detail, you can find it in the Wealthy Adventurer magazine in the Reading Room
I have included here, two photos of the Egyptian-looking artifact that I mentioned in my last newsletter. Please feel free to leave any comments you may have in our Community Forum. What a curious thing to find in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador.
My property here on the mountain, borders a section of the old Inca Trail between Cuzco and Quito. We find old pieces of pottery and artifacts all over the entire region here. As you may know, the Incas often followed trails that were laid down long before they ever came along, some of them by the Canari culture. Similarly, these same trails were also followed by the colonizing Spanish, starting in the 1500’s as they journeyed back and forth between El Dorado and Quito.
How in the world did an artifact like this come to rest in my general neck of the woods? I would sure love to know the answer to that question. There is much more to be discovered around this site. I will keep you posted from time to time.
Ok, I must get back to work now on more projects for our Wealthy Adventurers group.
Hasta Muy Pronto, Stan
