I have been a gold dredger for 9 years. The first dredge I bought was a 4-inch, with a 5hp engine. It had 15 feet of suction hose, a beat up regulator, a patched air reservoir, and floats that were sun baked and cracked—what a beauty.

There are numerous legends involving “lost” Spanish mines and treasures in central Texas, some of which have actually been found. The most famous mine, which remains lost, is the San Saba.
In 1877, a prospector named Ed Schieffelin discovered silver in “the middle of nowhere” and staked two claims: “Tumbstone” and “Graveyard.” Soon a town and mining district were organized and acquired the name “Tombstone” after making a spelling correction.
As usual, the decision process was extremely difficult, but we managed to pick our 10 winners.
