Dowse for gold – $50,000 reward


You say you can dowse for gold! Ok, lets reward you with $50,000 and the chance to locate pockets of gold at a famous gold mine

Heres how it works :
You will pay your own expenses to get to the mine where the test will be conducted. You will fly to Fresno CA and then its 1.5 hours drive north. There are hotels in Mariposa. If you successfully complete the tests with 80% accuracy or higher you will get the $50,000 and ALL your expenses reimbursed AND get the chance to find unknown pockets of gold at the mine and receive a percentage of the proceeds of the gold found.

First Test

A 50 gram natural gold nugget will be placed in an airtight, foam filled black box. There will be 9 other boxes that have nothing in them. The boxes will be randomly mixed up and then placed in open view on a location on the property and they will be 10 feet apart. There will be 4 people that select their choice for which box contains the gold nugget. There will be YOU (the dowser), myself, my neighbor and my room mate. This test will be conducted 10 times and you need to pick the correct box 8 out of 10 times.

There will be 4 people that select their choice for which box contains the gold specimen. There will be YOU (the dowser), myself, my neighbor and my room mate.

(Bonus test) – 155.5 grams (5 ounces) of smaller natural gold nuggets will be placed in an airtight, foam filled black box. There will be 9 other boxes that have nothing in them. The boxes will be randomly mixed up and then placed in open view on a location on the property and they will be 10 feet apart. There will be 4 people that select their choice for which box contains the gold nuggets. There will be YOU (the dowser), myself, my neighbor and my room mate. If you are 100% accurate on 10 out of 10 tries you get to keep this gold as an extra bonus!

Myself, my room mate and my neighbor are all ineligible to win, we are only participating as “control” subjects to provide “random selection” data.

You as the dowser agree to have the test video recorded and that those videos become the property of Goldbay and can be used for future articles and media.

I started Goldbay in 1999 as a response to man-made or fake gold nuggets being auctioned on Ebay. I wanted a site that could control the authenticity of products and connect gold nugget buyers with a reputable source

    1. Do you know what “dowsing” or “divining” is? This is for people who make the claim that they can find gold with divining or dowsing rods or a “witching stick”

  1. Im actually intrigued by request. Going into California doesnt interest me. Dowsing does. When dowsing it takes something out of you. Its a concern that im considering ignoring. What are you gaining from this if proven to work? After the $50,000 then what? Thankyou Ken

    1. very simple, I have a gold mine that is rich with pockets, if a dowser can prove that it works then I would see if that person wants to dowse for pockets in the mine and receive part of the proceeds of the finds. Its a win win, t shortcuts my exploration costs and the dowser can make beaucoup $$$

  2. I hold an annual dowsing contest using a one-ounce nugget for the target. I personally do not believe in dowsing but many of our members do and there was enough interest to hold the event. I saw several ads for the “Colorado Goldsticks” LRD device and the fellow was making a lot of bold claims about the accuracy of his machine. We even decided to allow electronic “dowsing” devices in our hunt and I gave the CGS fellow to bring his machine or send one of his customers in the area to prove his claims and I would give him free advertising if his claims could be proven in our arena. The silence of his reply remains deafening. Good luck Dave in your quest for a competent dowser with provable skill.

    1. It’s not that I don’t believe in it it’s just that for me the proof is in the pudding. There are many many many claims out there of it works so I am willing to put up $50,000 2 give enough incentive for someone to come and show me. There’s been a $1000000 reward up for grabs for over 30 years and it still remains unclaimed I am quite sure that my 50000 will never get claimed

      1. How do you plan to pay the $50,000? In gold…. in a money order…. a personal check? Same day? Or call me in a week type of thing?

    1. There is no starting point. All 10 boxes will be in plain view Spaced 10 feet apart. One of the 10 boxes will have the gold nugget in it and it is up to the dowser to pick that box. The person that is attempting to be successful at this will have 10 shots at each of the three samples and need to get it 8 out of 10 times on the three samples

  3. So
    1) is the participant allowed to touch or manipulate the box or area around the box in any way?

    2) is my interpretation correct that the 3 other peoples’ picks do not remove the ability of player to choose the same box they did…the point of their choices is just to show random guessing succeeds as often as the claimed “dowsing”

    3) do you/roommate/neighbor know which box contains the nugget in each test? (I assume this is a no, otherwise your “guess” isn’t really meaningful to your “control”—but if not, then what is the procedure for re-mixing the boxes between each guess?)

    1. 1) Yes the participant places the boxes the first time
      2) The other persons picks have no bearing on the dowsers picks
      3) NO ONE knows which box the nugget is in (after the boxes are randomly mixed)

  4. This would be so much fun.. Even if I didn’t win.. Just to get to see the mine would be great..Good luck to all that try..
