Marcus Cox

Recently Adam Palmer asked me about Marcus Cox, a prospector mentioned by Donald Waite in a story on his former website  “The Lost Gold Mine of Pitt Lake.” If you are interested to know more about this long-forgotten man and some of his claims click here. Since he was not a victim of “the curse” and did not tell fanciful stories of untold riches he never became part of the legend.

Stuart Brown -- Letters for sale.

Thanks to Daryl who reported the following post he found on e-Bay.


Go here for a file with all the pictures etc. No new letters -- go here for these and some other Fyles letters collected by Don.  
Doubt that anyone would have paid a penny for those letters and perhaps a few newspaper cuttings. Would have liked a copy of that picture though.
What do you think that Daryl’s hat would make on e-Bay? ?
