The Guadalupe Mountains of west Texas and southern New Mexico are composed of a huge limestone reef structure, which formed millions of years ago as a result of the accumulation and sedimentation of ocean-dwelling algae.Because of the sedimentary nature of these mountains, geologists claim they are devoid of any significant mineral formation, particularly that associated with gold and silver. In spite of these claims, this region has probably provided the setting for more tales of lost gold mines and hidden treasures per square mile than any other place in North America.The tales begin with the arrival of Coronado's explorers.
