Howdy folks. I am a friend of author Dick French. I posted in 2012 here that he had been contacted by Paul A. Hale.
Here is French's second book that details everything as well as the chimney of the burned down cabin that was found. They also found human bones, artifacts and gold with pictures to prove everything on the old maps!

Pay attention friends this is the real deal and the momentum starts in 2015.
Here is a copy of my original post four years ago.
Be sure to get a copy of the May/June 2011 issue of Gold Prospectors magazine. Author Richard French "Four Days From Fort Wingate" should have an article in it.
The first part of this story can be seen on page 6 in the January 1011 newsletter of our local club's website.

Dick French has written a new book that has not been published yet "Return to the Lost Adams Diggings". I have read it and it is outstanding! Hundreds of Adams Artifacts found, some early Spanish. Bone fragments found also. Pictures of the cabin's chimney. GPS data. Assay reports!
French & Dobie were both about 20 miles to far to the west in their searches.
