Long range radar using a p-Band satellite radar system will actually give an accurate picture down to a couple of centimeters in resolution. From space, the ground can be mapped to show what is beneath it. This is fascinating news:

Does this signal the beginning of the end to traditional prospecting?

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Hey Golddigger- I don't mean to change the subject but earlier I tried to log in and there was an error and the word translate was in the username block. Have you heard of that before?

Never heard of that happening before. It might be a server error or a MySQL error on the forum hosting site.

I doubt if the satellites signal an end to prospecting, for a number of reasons. This visual stuff has been going since the first Landsat, which discovered debris covered watercouses, in the Sahara.

The foot prospectors still have to go out, slog though the bush, do all the same old things. Besides, these companies (Remote viewing) want an arm and a leg, for this service, while you have to do all the grunt work. You can get a fair bit for free, though.

Hey Golddigger,
The p-band works best in dry conditions just like the gpr units. The more the ground is saturated with water the least penetration of the radar. However in a dry area this could be used to pinpoint areas and save leg work. Just like using a magnetometer. You find the target , cut a boring, take the sample , test it and if it is a positive find then dig 9' to 45'. My problem has been finding accessible images for particular areas.

findoldstuff;

Around here, the remote viewing is aimed at companies with money to burn, so there is no chance for the individual.... I need 1st the software and 2nd, cheap, or free, satellite access.

An Infra Red Google Earth would be handy, too.  Great

No, I cant help with the remote viewing, my ex-ray vision isnt what it used to was.  Funny

The BC government has a project going, to FIND aquifers, in buried glacial gravel, with satellite radar! Maybe it does not penetrate wet areas, but that can be a plus, in finding water.

Boring: I would have to do my own.... I have a plot for boring gravel, to assess a placer lease, I got the motor part of the drill (cheap) but I have to weld up my own bucket. The idea was to bring up a cubic ft at a time, wash it to concentrate and package, for later examination. This would be slow going, even to 15 ft, which is all I considered.... if no bedrock, by fifteen feet, forget it unless rich. There could be the hazard of cave in, of the hole, too, and a possibility of losing a bit.

It is strictly conjecture, now, as my fellow conspirator died in July, so I dropped my claims.

This is a very good post, wish I had seen it earlier. Thansk again Golddigger.
