We received an email from one of our readers concerning a mineral deposit off the road going from Mexicali to San Filipe. The fellow’s email said, “I have a friend who is a double PhD. soil scientist. He concurs that this type of salt used in the right proportions does wonders to restore mineral depleted soils.” He wondered if we could get him a sample.

His email contained these directions, “I have used a scale to estimate distances. Once you turn east on the small road near km. 103, the distance from the Carretera to the salt deposit is about 1.5 km. I’d like a sample from the bright white area just north of the road. Also, I’d like a sample from the area that is about 1 km. further east where it looks like ‘rabbit ears’. That would just be for an ‘apples to apples’ comparison of mineral content. A good way to prepare samples for shipping is in the 1 gallon ziploc type bags with the zipper. Call me anytime. My mailing address is…”

Well, Jim checked out the location using Google Maps and answered the guy by email, “As I have it, the original spot 1.5 kilometers east from Highway 5 is at 31.750163 -115.057749, and “rabbit ears” is at 31.750510, -115.049295. If you input these coordinates, (essentially latitude and longitude) into Google Maps it will come up with the two locations.”

Jim also sent a picture from Google maps of how these coordinates appear for the site (red arrow). The site is indicated by the green arrow. Out at the end of the picture is the “rabbit ears” area where a concentrated supply of the special salt may be located.

Jim also said in his email that he could get the samples, but would have to charge the IRS rate of $0.56 per mile to the round trip of 138 miles, which is $77.28. In addition Jim said he would charge a simple flat $100.00 for his time. That brought the total to $177.00 rounded. Jim finished his email with, “To that, I will add on the postage. After the samples are mailed, I can send you the final total. You can either pay by check or I can bill you via PayPal – your choice.”

After Jim sent off the email, he said, “This here guy ain’t never gonna answer.”

“What makes you think that?” I asked.

“The guy is associated with some sort’a church. Churches don’t pay, they just pass the hat—I’m a goin’ down there just the same.”

“Why on earth, Jim?”

“I might just try a dry panning down there for gold. Why the whole damn place was a river bottom. What could be better. Maybe ther’s gold in them there hills.”

The next morning at the crack of dawn, Jim set off for the road to San Felipe.

It was nearly getting dark when Jim returned. He had a real big smile on his face.

“Well, how did it go?” I asked.

Jim was beaming.

Gold?” I asked.

“Well, little darlin’, now even if I found gold, we ain’t sayin’ nothin’ to nobody about it. Now about what I found in Ocotillo Wells is a horse of a different color,” said Jim as he opened a can of cold beer.
