When I returned for a second time, Dowsing power was bad. At that time I was still learning, I dug one hole down to granite, and it was very close to the area you both marked. Awesome! I would dowse it differently next time. I didn't bother dowsing the vein dimensions or depth, power sucked.. The tailing piles from old mines were on the S side of the wash up on the mtn.

Did I show this one yet? This is near Stanton on a Weaver claim. Standing about were the red dot is, in all directions 360 degrees was only one Gold signal, using my 17 inch rods, that only Dowse big quantity. I didnt go down and Dowse above to see if it's a vein or big piece or check depth, because someone was dry washing righ near it. I had though of returning to see. The area and creek is giant boulders. Do you guys see anything?

First check, was getting an area west/northwest of your circle.
I can remember reading a story in the old treasure magazines, about the granite boulders at Rich Hill. A treasure hunter cracked open a rock (small boulder size) and recovered a nice gold nugget.

Stanton area has been really hammered. Right next to the road, someone with a deep Minelab detector dug a huge gold nugget.

Yes I was there 1 week after a nugget worth $100.000 was found, were you have marked. Someone saw me dowsing over by Antelope creek and showed me the hole. My long story short, I signaled and dowsed a target, and he detected a target. We dug with pick and shovel 2 ft down to Coliche. We didnt find anything! He snapped a pic of the hole, for his deepest dig at a weak metal detector signal confused. I now know what possibly happened then.. Yes, a hammered area!

That was back when I was using 11 inch rods only. I started using 17 inch rods and got away from smalls.

Here's another one from 05 in Arizona. I was dowsing with a Gold signal stopping at exits along 17 triangulating. I was able to get 3 lines on it. I only checked with Gold then, after I quickly ruled out Meteorite using Nickel. I didnt check it for Silver, Iron, or Telluride, only Gold. It's probably a Gold vein, could be hidden Gold. It was a 17 inch long rod signal.. It's got quantity.. Do you guys see anything?

Seems to be fines or quartz float/vein slightly west of where your lines cross. East of point lines cross, if any coarse gold look there.

Looks like a tough area to explore.

In case anyone is wondering if anything is at the cross of my triangulation, this next one might help convince you.. I was out Dowsing with a friend, Dec 25 2011. After chasing Meteorite signals for a couple hrs, I switched to Gold mainly. We chased one signal to a lone target, 25 ft. deep. After that I dowsed a long line and wrote down my line direction, and longitude and latitude. It wasn't till a couple weeks later I drew my single line on my map, seeing that it was heading straight to Cherry, and multiple old mines marked on the map. I took the road through the mtns and Cherry and dowsed my final triangulation lines. With all my lines dowsed, I could tell there was only one target signaling back. It took a bit of hiking through a lot of thick bushes, but eventually i made to my Dowsed target. It was Dowsed using Gold for a signal, and i first dowsed it from 8 miles away. Before i post my dowsed triangulation picture. Does anyone want to check what they see? My target is hardrock Gold ore spot. The area N has some mines, only microscopic, or trace Gold is present in area. Jerome is North a little bit. The spot is claimable, and I don't know how much Gold is retrievable out of the total signal. I did some exploratory digging. Went through mineralized Granite and hit a small quartz vein. Didn't have any assay done. It's called a mineralized zone, the light colored Granite saturated with Red, Green, and Black colors leeching out of the vein.

Not much signal at first, but marked something giving hits.

I made Stanton maps in GE Pro.
