Glen, your link doesn't go anywhere. It is a "round robin" and only goes to another link.

Thanks I think I fixed it.

His money will be safe.  The James Randi Education Foundation used to offer one million dollars to anyone who could demonstrate powers that defy the laws of nature, plenty of dousers tried and failed.  The Amazing Randi died last year and will be missed.  Everybody knows someone who can douse water, electrical etc., they just can't seem to do it under scientific scrutiny.  Too much negative energy from those skeptics I guess.  A woman who worked in the prospecting shop in Temecula was said to have the gift of dousing gold.  I wondered aloud why she was working there and not living in a big mansion on the hill.  My comments were not well received by the true believers eying those 21st century dousing rods.  I'll be quiet now, lest I stir up a hornets nest of believers.

True believers could always lend a hand in the minefields of Angola or Cambodia.

Minelab does.

A few things:

1) Humans are not good random number generators.

2) Boxes should be covered with shrouds (cloth is fine) between tests.  If I were going to try and win the $ I'd memorize some characteristic of a box and pick that one every time.  I'd have a 10% chance of winning the $61k, so a $6.1k expectation.  Better than a couple weeks swinging a Zed at Lunk's favorite prospecting location.

3) I'll bet on a dog.  Which one?  Any of them!

Maybe they can offer another cash jackpot for someone who can find gold with a Long Range Locator or whatever they're calling those things these days.

There are people who believe in an imaginary being in the sky too, so I guess that believing they can douse for gold is not that far fetched in the grand scheme of things !!  🤣

      Moving Boulders to find Placer Gold 
      Moving Boulders to reach Bedrock Crevices to locate those Placer Gold Nuggets that are hiding just out of sight.
      Jeff and Gary ( Two Toes ) use a Come-along and a Breaker bar to move the boulders then check the bedrock crevices with a Minelab SDC 2300 Metal Detector.
      A Come-Along is a hand operated winch used to pull objects in this case Boulders !!

      Hello detector-prospector friends,
      I had the honor to interview the finder-family of the legendary "Ambrosha-Nugget", found 1983 in Sierra County, California.
      Enjoy!
