This is the final cache in the Alchemy Quest series, CONGRATULATIONS ON GETTING THIS FAR.
The stated coordinates above are for the parking area.
To find this cache you must first find Sulfur and Mercury...
GCHJN3 - Sulfur which gives you the North co-ordinates
GCHJN2 - Mercury which gives you the West co-ordinates
Once you have the coordinates from Sulfur and Mercury you can attempt the final stage of the quest. The co-ordinates do not lead straight to the cache though. They are merely the first part of the Gold Puzzle...
You'll need a periodic table!
Navigate to the coordinates gained from the purple level caches of Sulfur and Mercury.
At these coordinates answer the following questions:
- How many lines of text are there on the side with no metal? (=Y)
- How many words are there on the bottom line? (=Z)
- Navigate to:
N 52 43.(487 + Y + Atomic Number of Calcium)
At this new location.
W 002 22.(441 - Z - Atomic Number of Platinum)
- How many flowers are there, in total, on the pillars (make sure you count them all)? (= X)
- The following are the co-ordinates to Gold!
N 52 43.(100 + X + Atomic Number of Polonium)
W 002 22.(402 - X - Atomic Number of Caesium)
The Alchemy Quest series of caches was originally placed by MarcB and adopted by The Bolas Heathens. The caches were then adopted and are currently maintained by Heidi Seekers. As of December 2014 there is a completion badge (see below) that can be displayed in your profile, please contact us for the code/instructions if you are interested.
