Besides the hotspot locations which are on this website for gold, I have been working for a client over in Canada and another client in Turkey to locate gold.

More information regarding the Clogau Gold deposits I located for the company in 1996:

I asked them for a map of the mines so that I could do a map survey of the gold areas.  They gave me a map of part of Clogau Gold Mine that they wanted me to check out.  I picked up gold on the map within the John Hughes Load, lower level.  I went back to the mine, discussed it with the Manager, check the records and that part of the mind face they had stopped work in 1907 because the geologist said that the rock formation was wrong and not the right rock to carry gold.  After reading this we went inside the mine to check this area out.  We got to the face of the load and I used my technique and yes the geologist was right, when looking at the rock formation it was not the right type of rock to carry the gold, however, my tools were reacting strongly beneath my feet and to the right of me.  We did a small excavation to a depth of 2 feet and we found silver led which is always a good sign in this mine that gold would be present.  We found the silver led at just a foot below our feet.  A further foot deeper we hit the gold vein which then continued beneath the ground, beneath the floor beyond the face of the mine and averaged 5 grams per tonne of ore.  This was very good when you bear in mind that Welsh gold is one of the rarest types of gold in the world and has a premium on it of three times greater price volume than the worlds gold which makes is very ulcerative to go for.  This gold deposit lasted the company for at least six months.  I did receive a reference for this as you will see in my testimonials on this website.

The second location in 1997 they asked me to find them another one and I had a look at a map of the upper level of the John Hughes system which was at a higher level in the strata close to the surface.  I picked up gold by map surveying at a higher level, went to the mine, we went into the mind a got to the John Hughes level and went up vertical ladders lashed together to a height of 100 feet passing on the way several addicts (tunnels within tunnels) on the way up checking them for gold and they did not have anything of value until we reached the upper level.  We took samples of rocks from the head of this addict within the tunnel and had the samples analysed and it was showing us 8 to 10 grams per ton.  This is why I received another reference for that research that I carried out for them.  Further investigations took place and unfortunately they could not go ahead as the cost to construct a safe passage to work the ore and release the load under the Health and Safety Rules would be too expensive.

So again I was asked could I find another location and checking further maps of the St David's load which is part of the Clogau system, my finding indicated that the number 2 shaft at a given level would produce gold as regards volume.  This is what I check out onsite and again got a reaction.  Please bear in mind that it is not very high or wide inside the tunnels and you are restricted in how you perform with your tools.  The minders started the process of drilling and digging out the area.  I had given a guide on the depth and it turned out I was 6 feet out, which is not much when you are working in such a confined space.  We hit a good sized 'gold pod'.  We took out approximately 260 ounces in those days it was worth £1,000 per ounce.

Unfortunately soon after this mine closed.

What is a hot spot?  A hotspot is a location which is heavily mineralised in for instance gold deposits.  As an example, please look at the Google earth map showing a section of the Dolgellau gold belt.  One is at St David's Load, the other one is at Gwyn, Gwynedd.  Both of these locations are indicating hotspots and high quality yields of gold.  The location at St David's my remote research is indicating that there is a fault running north east, south west carrying gold and copper mixture.  A further breakdown would show in grams per ton the quantities recoverable from the ore.  Regarding the other site location near Gwyn, Gwynedd you will see again an area marked out 'Gold hotspot location' and 'VG' indicating visible gold, a guide as regards the depth count to the top of the gold vein and in grams per ton approximately 4 grams per ton.  This would of course be done in greater detail than what you see as this is only an example of what I am meaning by saying 'locations' and 'hotspots'.  These locations can come right down to within a matter of a few feet of the actual load.  This would be the remote side of the research.  A site visit would then firm up the findings plus further sampling within the area.  This will save your company thousands upon thousands of pounds also saving in time and costly expenditure such as size mix.  And to employ my services to get these results would be far cheaper and just as accurate.  For evidence and proof of what I say, please look at my references above.

Google Map 1

This is part of Clogau Gold Mine where I did my first research into prospecting for gold for the original gold mining company called Clogau Gold in the 1990’s which closed shortly afterwards. The gold mine has now been re-opened with a different company and has the exploration rights to the whole of the Dolgellau gold belt.

When a client contacts me enquiring about the process I use to locate precious metals gold etc., I then start the process using google earth to search and locate the gold deposits. If you look at this google earth map number 1 you will see yellow markers following a pattern of lines. These yellow markers are indicating gold deposits. As you see I am indicating on this plan a guide as regards to the depth, the quantity recoverable and the location. As you will also see there are different types, gold will blend with other minerals as is shown on this map. It can blend itself with copper and it can also blend itself with silver, galena, arsenic and so on.

Google Map 2

This map number 2 is the next stage of a close up of the copper and gold belt. On this scale you can see again the yellow markers which will be as precise as possible for the locations of the gold vein/fault. This continues to tell you the depth and in some areas the amount of grams per ton of gold and copper.

Google Map 3

Google Earth Map 3 is a close up of the copper and gold vein/fault. You will see that it is now down the 500 feet from 3,000. This is to improve the accuracy even more. The red and white lines are just a guide as to the general direction of the deposit and the yellow markers are the exact locations.

Google Map 4

Again this has gone down from 500 feet to 300 feet again improving the accuracy even more. Notice the yellow marker is indicating the depth of the gold and copper vein. Also included is 7 grams per ton of gold and also copper of 11 grams per ton which is a rich deposit which the new owners should be very pleased to explore.

The above Google Earth maps are the first stage of exploration of a location which I do by remote surveying. The second stage is to travel to the location wherever it may be and then mark it out to improve the accuracy even greater. This method will save you time and money by you as a client getting licensed areas that have no profitable gold or precious metals of great value and help you to find the right licensed areas to make a profit for your company.
