16 Replies and 1192 Views Prospecting  1192  16 Started by I'm looking for claim-friendly location(s) to test a new magnetometer system that I developed to map now-buried former stream courses by sensing and mapping black magnetite sand deposits close to stream locations historically known to have produced significant gold. Help with digging these potentially rewarding locations also wanted. My involvement would be totally at my expense. (TopoMag project.)

18 Replies and 2009 Views Be Advised: USGOLDMAPS.COM  2009  18 Started by Just a friendly public service announcement regarding They make claims maps for use with Google Earth. The product looks really nice but upon receipt I discovered that their data is static and from 2013. I reached out to the Contact Us email and the response was basically, don't worry about it. Claim data doesn't change very often. Uh... I call BS Asking for a refund. Wish me luck and buyer beware.
