Notes

JVJon's scan at Digital Comics Museum has "Ravielli ??" on this one, but in lack of horses in the Ravielli "Taanda" stories in Jungle Adventures, it is difficult to confirm it.

Synopsis

Three white men are trying to find the Lost Spaniard's Mine in the sacred mountains of the Apaches.

Notes

This story is credited to Doug Wildey in The Hawk, and when looking at all the drawings that seem to be made from photographs, it could be him as he used photo reference quite often. It is difficult to pin any Wildey style to these peculiar photo drawings, with people in positions that don't seems to interact with each other inside the panels. Not easy to follow the story either.
