    Just got back from AZ, Three Fault claim, good looking area, I didn't find any gold this trip, I did find a bunch of small nails about a 1/2 long and all curled at the ends and they were all in an area of about 3 feet. I posted a picture of them on my claim report if anyone wants to take a look at them, maybe some one has and idea what they are or what there from. Maybe from an old saddle bag or something, I've found boot tacks and there smaller so I don't think there from an old pair boots. The mystery and the history of the targets we dig are fun to think about too.

    They look more like fishhooks than boot tacks!!

    The hooked nails to me look like they were driven completely through a board and then bent back over on itself. I would bend nails like that on an exposed piece of board that I would be handiling and didn't want to get poked.

    Its amazing some of the thigs the old timers worked at. A few miles from Three Faults a found an old ore chute, but the metal was so thin, I could not see it supporting a shovelworth of material. Between the mill on the San DOmingo and the Dam in that area, there's some old relics around there.

    Thanks Chris, That makes since to me. Of course I was hoping it was from something more exciting but the mystery behind the things we find out in the middle of no where is a lot of fun and never knowing what some one might find. Thanks again.

    I got another theory what those curled over nails could be, I was told they may have been used on an old chair to tack down the cushion, and later that part of the chair was burned or had rotten away. Maybe the area I found the nails/tacks was an old camp site? The next time I'm back there I'll check out the area some more and see if I can find some more clues. Good enough reason for me to plan another trip to Three Fault, oh ya, and find some gold too.
