“The Lost Mine” is based on a true story about the life of Jacob Waltz. The story takes place in 1860, in the State of Arizona and is about “The Dutch Man”, an old miner and sole prospector who committed many crimes to keep his secret safe including murder. He spent more time protecting his mine than prospecting it. On his death bed before he died, he tried to clear his conscience to a young miner by the name of Dick Homes. Before giving him the map and directions to his gold mine he had one final last request. He asked for a sip of water from the canteen that Dick was holding an arm length away. He was denied this request as revenge took precedence for Dick Homes. He had a history with Jacob, and it is unknown as to who had the final revenge as he dies without disclosing the location of his mine.
