    Dowsing for gold veins

    When using a gold signaling object, and chasing a molecular connection signal, the furthur you chase the bigger or better the vein. As you find the vein, be it quartz, in granite, schist, basalt, or some other ore material, the signal will lead you to one specific spot in the vein, and the vein as you dowse it's length, may dissapear just as it did to many minors in the past. If you pull ore out of the vein at the spot you were signalled to, you signal spot will weaken. So keep in mind to GPS the spot or memorize the location, for you might not be able to locate it again because when you pull ore you drop your signal to a multiple signal sensitivity, and eventually you might find the right signal again, but you would chase to many non valuable signals to find it. The ore is usually heavaly mineralized. Also the ore at the point of the vein that you signalled while using gold, might not contain much gold, sometimes more silver or other element. The reason being is because the whole vein itself, down deep and whatever length has enough molecular gold to cause a piggyback connection and create a gold signal exiting the vein, riding other elements. So, if your not on somebody's claim, mark the spot take some ore, wash it and look for gold. If the vein is small, mayby 4 or 5 inches, and you don't see visible gold, don't bother paying to assay it. If the vein is big, and the ground is free to claim, assay the ore and see what you got. If your results are good, and the value of the ore and the size of the vein is some way able to make you $$ File a claim. The L-rods I use to chase veins are one quarter inch 3 ft. long zinc plated. The long low-sensitivity rods chase big signals only. Use smaller rods to your exact spot and depth. I have chased signals up to 8 miles so far. To dowse for veins, use your least sensitive rods. You want to chase big distant signals only. Not all veins will be showing on the surface, so it's better to look in areas where bedrock is more present, and quartz isn't the only ore carrying material out there. Search in gold mine areas, and sometimes you'll be led right to a vein that had been prospected in the past but had dissapeared below ground and lost to the prospector, but you will be able to dowse it. You will also see that many of those veins aren't worth your time, or effort to mine. But just knowing that you can find them is the fun of it, right!!! Dowser

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    Hey dowser.....I don't chase many veins but I locate some...It seems that the rods will lock on a hot spot. This hot spot may or may not contain the most gold. I have dug a few grams and then found another signal a few feet away that was a 1/2 nugget. I found some silver coins that someone had placed in a single layer about 2 foot square. The hot spot was on one edge.

    I have located the source of two gold "floats" by following them up the mountain from the stream. This is no fun and to much like work....These are things people should be aware of so they can try different methods and find which works best for them...Art

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    Hey Art... You are right about chasing gold veins, most are not easy to get too. Some are on steep hills, or mountains, in rough brush, and in snake heaven. When dowsing for them you don't know where you'll end up. It could also be someone's claim, and we don't know it, until we GPS it and check. It's not a bad idea to have someone with you when looking, just in case something unexpected happens. Also, I was wondering if you have a way to check density of an object thru a line? I haven't found one yet, and I still have trouble when I get to my signal end. I have chased gold signals that led me to what I asume are meteorites. They will also dowse on Nickel, Copper, Iron, Cobalt, and Magnesium. I can tell the size of them, some being oval, and some round. So far all have been to deep to dig to. But with the distance of the signal they put out, they are very big. Have you encountered any of these yet? Dowser

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    Hey dowser....I use baited rods..This keeps other signals from bothering me..I can pick up one flake of gold from 46 paces away and a 1/4 oz nugget for just under a 1/4 mile. I assume from this that the size determines how far you can pick it up. When searching I walk North-South or East-West. I only follow signals that cross at 90 degrees. If it doesn't match with one of the cardinal directions I ignore it. When I find a signal line I drop one rod to my side. The other rod will tell me which way to go. This will only work with two rods and both rods have to remain in your hands. If you follow the signal the wrong direction it will just stop....Art

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    Hey Art, we both have different techniques I see. But when it comes to free Gold, it gets more difficult for me. I can locate placer easy enough, but I have a tough time on finding nuggets not associated with placer. If I'm in a gold area, old mines and ore all around, there is way to many signals to pick out a nugget one. To many rocks and quartz contain microscopic and submicroscopic gold. A worthless gold ore rock the size of a softball signals just as good as if it was a quarter ounce nugget, and there is a lot more worthless rocks than free gold out there. So how do you separate a solid gold signal from a junk gold signal? Dowser

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    Hey dowser...That micro-gold is a real problem...I use a device that will not let the rods close on a lot of the small stuff. So far I think the device is getting rid of about 1/2 of the micro-gold signals. I dig and process the rest. ...Art

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    When I bait it leads to the material; when I don't it leads to Spanish trail markers where you wouldn't think to look. Sound more like a spiritual matter? Twisted

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    I chased a Gold signal over a mile yesterday, and I was hoping it was a Lost Treasure, but it turned out to be a Vein instead. But it was my largest, with it being 16 in. wide, and tapers of at 60 ft. long. The only problem is that it's five ft. down, and the surface rocks were brought in by mother nature, covering it and hiding it's value. Dead End ?

    If there is any sign of hydrothermal activity nearby ( caves or the like ) I would grab a digger. Old river bed likewise.

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    It's in a granite area, but the closest bedrock exposed is a half mile away. Plenty of quartz laying around, but nothing with much gold. I don't see any other mines in the area.

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    I have found a few gold veins...I have dug a few of the shallow ones.... My personal rule is if it is more than 2 1/2 foot deep some one else can have it. ....Art

    Re: Dowsing for gold veins

    Same goes for Meteorites with me now. Two feet is about all I want to dig anymore. I've located 19 so far, two strewn fields, one with 6 and one with 5, the rest are single ones, all too deep to dig. It's just a matter of time until I find one on or near the surface. But I have to drive so far now. I just drove down Bloody Basin Rd, 28 miles, and didn't signal anything nice. I stop and check about every 2 miles. I check for Gold, Nickle, and this time I was signaling with Turquoise, because of a story I had heard.

    Thanks Art. I thought I'd have something big by now, but I see it's going to take more time and research. Dowser
