During the 1700’s Arizona was owned by Spain. During this time the Spanish built several missions across the Southwest in regions that were rich with minerals and they eventually discovered gold and silver.
The Jesuits quickly converted the native population into Christianity as well as becoming mine workers and stored much of in their missions. Over time the local tribes, Pima and Papago came to realize the dangers of the mines and small uprisings occurred. The largest being the Pima Rebellion of 1751 and many Jesuits and Spaniards were killed. During this time multitudes of gold and silver were hidden in mines within the surrounding hills and as well as in caves and other locations. The search has continued ever since to find those treasures, including a team I was involved with. It was very interesting what was discovered.
We believe the Jesuit’s did the glyph writings on these rocks and possibly the Spanish did carvings. We even believe… some may be Egyptian, but there is more data needed to prove. Right now we are working on facts and tangibles. We also believe this man may be a tomb or even the major cache.
It’s not fully understood how they got up the side of the mountain to do these elaborate drawings and faces. However, there is a spot with apparent rope burns.
Look closely and you’ll see a face of a man which we believe is looking at the chamber. There is also a turtle looking up from the bottom corner. Many of the walls have Jesuit inscriptions with “J”, “333” and crosses.
