Video - Google Earth For Prospecting

Recommended Posts


There are so many resources available, it is hard to keep up. :wink:

I know remote detection/sensing is taboo these days, mostly for good reason, BUT don't be too surprised not that many years down the road if/when that is no longer the case. There are advanced technologies that will eventually make our heads spin.

A lot can be done using GIS programs these day.

It is the way to go. Back in the 1980/81 we used to check  aerial photo in the golden triangle for puddling dams and surfacing areas (striped of trees). This was one way of finding spots that others might not of found. I then used the mines department record and databases. This lead me to get all the pre 1950 gold mines and put them in my own database (google .......historical-gold-mines-in-google-earth) which I made available for Ozi gold prospector. As a hobby it has made my gold chasing well worth while.

      This is pretty neat stuff, and I think the applications for prospectors and relic hunters are obvious...

      The other day I pulled up Google Earth as usual but now the navigation and zoom controls and the tool bar icons are very tiny. And now my placemark labels are larger than normal. I cannot figure out how to reset it back.
      Has anyone else experienced this?

      Just wondering if there is any new information on LIDAR? Been wanting to use is to search forested areas. Here is a old link on the subject. http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/79-light-detection-and-ranging-lidar/?fromsearch=1

      There's a new site for research for us prospectors called Land Matters, it's Non-Profit Educational Organization website primarily for prospectors and other land users, this site was created by Brian Cole and Leigh Johnson, with much help from MinerDiggins Adventures, who many may know as Clay and Ruby, who have been for years been producing mapping and mining claims programs for prospectors.
       The site has been posted on other gold prospecting forums but I haven't seen it posted here, it's free to use, many many hours have been put into this site and more to come, there are many different maps and map layers (geology, land status, minerals, mining, topos, etc.), articles, resources, and a searchable library for 8 states at this time and more states are coming as requested by end users as well as the entire USA and other parts of the world, it takes a little time and work to add each state but several more states are in the works at the time I'm posting this and will be added in the order they have been requested by end users, if you have a request please request it at the website or I can relay it to them.
       As mentioned it a non-profit project created out of the passion of what we do and many, many hours have been put into it's creation which isn't finished by a long shot, but they do accept donations if you are so inclined.
