    I find that the rods do have some distance problems. I can only locate a few flakes of gold at about 60 paces and the same for old silver dimes. As the size goes up so does the distance. A ¾ oz nugget can be found at a distance of a mile or more. You first have to find different size gold to check how far your rods will locate each target.When I follow a gold signal I can tell what is there by how far I have followed

    Around end of Nov 2009 at the gold claims at Quartzsite, AZ standing next to someone (a dredger staying in the area because of the California dredging ban just went into effect) who said that he used to work for Arizona Bureau of Mines). I was getting between about 2-5 miles for the lode mines, from the claim we were camped on in the 14 day free BLM site. You need to have a person like him stand watching your rods pointing, tell what is out there in the distance.

    L-rods can be made to attract or turn towards gold, much the same as described in the article for his invention.
