    Hey there, another good one. Sounds like you have combined Arthur L. Campa with one or more additional sources. *Can you share the sources you used? Those mountains are known for lots of copper, but mostly no gold whatsoever. Gold is where you find it. I have met people in Cuba who have found gold in the Nacimiento Mountains (the mis-nomer of Gallina Mountains likely refers to the modern-day Nacimientos – the only real mountain range matching any of the description). I have several claims over by what used to be Copper city. Copper minerals replacing fossil wood. A lot of the access to the forest has been blocked by hypocrites who still want the Forest Service, County, and BLM to maintain their very long driveways at taxpayer expense even though they are (likely illegally) blocking access.

    Dowsing with the modern light weight ball bearing dowsing rod will locate any gold deposited. I am a professional dowsing prospector and can definitely say yes copper deposits usually contain a small amount of gold intertwined with the copper. However a few of the copper deposits do have gold deposited on the outskirts of the copper deposit, such as the Barny Canyon Gold Mine that is on the north outskirt of the big famous Bingham Canyon Copper Mine, which is west of Salt Lake City, Utah. If you are serious about prospecting for lost gold mines or treasures then you need to read and study the recently published book named : The Art of Dowsing – Separating Science from Superstition, for becoming a professional dowsing prospector and treasure hunter. With the ability to dowse amplified long distant dowsing from a moving vehicle, there is a good probability of dowsing for the searched gold deposit from dowsing down a highway with dowsing your way right up to the gold deposit, and then get of the vehicle for dowsing out on foot all edges, exact center, depth buried with angle of deposition, and most importantly GRADING. Thank you for reading this long post and have a safe, healthy, good day.

    I need the gold to buy us supplies 🤔 “but we buy our own supplies” – here you hold that and I’ll swing the hammer 😂
