I am a prospector (a person looking for gold). My name is John Singleton. I remember April of 1895 very well. I had been wandering all over the desert looking for valuable ore (rock with metal inside). We were feeling very discouraged when we camped on on a mountain made of red rock. Wow, were we surprised when we found massive (very large) amount of gold bearing quartz (a special type of rock).
