- Long-range locator Forward Gauss VR-1000B-II exposed as fraudulent dowsing device in Tanzania
Yet another fraudulent geologist have been exposed as dowser and a modern "witch" in Tanzania. A fraudulent long-range locator device was used as fake metal detectors with claims to be able to find gold on distances such as up to 1000 meters on vertical and horizontal directions. The long-range locator device manufactured in China and named Forward Gauss VR-1000B-II have been exposed as dowsing device which falls in the category of witchcraft and not a science. The electronic circuits within the device detect no gold but are exclusively used to defraud people. Owners of such devices collect money from gullible small scale and artisanal miners in Tanzania. A simple test in our garden have exposed the owner not to be a geologist but a simple clown.
- Fraudulent dowsing device Forward Gauss VR 5000 exposed in Tanzania
The fraudulent dowsing device Forward Gauss VR 5000 exposed in Tanzania. The fraudulent team of "geologists" claimed to be able to find hidden treasure such as burial reserves and German antiques that include and are not limited to German Duss or Deutz stove, ironbox, lantern, radio, padlocks, axe, hammer, wallclock, gramophone, sword, beacon/bayonnetes, boots, belt, wristwatch, bottle, spoon, German militaria antiques which contain natural red mercury, More to these are high grade uranium, gemstones, diamond, gold and treasure boxes full of pure Silver wares and a lot more.
- Dowsing exposed in gold mining activities
Dowsing or rhabdomancy is searching for underground water or minerals by using a dowsing rod. We are exposing any and all dowsing methods that are too often used in East Africa, in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya by fraudulent geologist and operators who claim to be able to find valuable minerals by using dowsing and long-range locators which they call "detectors" but are nothing else but fraudulent devices. Too many small scale miners and artisanal miners and their families suffered for wrongdoings of dowsers or "geologist" who claimed to have dowsing abilities. Locating gold on distances of even several kilometers have been reported and exposed as false and fraudulent.
- Pouring the gold into the mold
You may see here how gold is quickly poured into the hot mold. After pouring the gold into the mold, shake it a little, give it few kicks, so that any remaining impurities, dirt or borax or remaining particles of gold may come out. Keep those impurities for later refining.
- Quickly adding gold scrap into the melting oven
If you wish to add some gold into the melting oven, do not delay as not to decrease the temperature. Quickly open the melting oven with one hand, and by using tweezers or small scoop, add the scrap gold into the oven.
- Human fat burning while melting the scrap gold
What you may see on this video is human fat burning while melting the gold scrap. Necklaces and bracelets often collect parts of human fat and during the melting stage they quickly burn out.
- Pouring the gold into the mold
Once gold has been melted in the melting oven, you are pouring the gold into the mold. There is no waiting time. The process must be done without delays. The mold must be heated and is usually held on the top of the oven to keep its temperature always hot. Asbestos gloves must be used, as otherwise you cannot handle the hot mold. You take the tweezers in the hand, quickly open the melting oven, then fix the crucible with tweezers and poour the gold into the mold.
- Quick gold mixing with the graphite stab
During the melting process one need to quickly open the melting oven, then use the special graphite stab to mix the gold, and then quickly close the melting oven.
- During melting mold is held on the hot gold melting oven
During the melting process the mold must be heated. As if the mold is not heated and very hot, pouring gold into cold mold would result with the burst of the melted gold. Basic safety gear are protective glasses, asbestos gloves and protective apron. When opening the oven to see or verify if gold have been melted, one should be fast. Open the oven, look inside, shake the gold, and close the oven as fast as possible. Don't let the temperature go down during your observation.
- The front panel of the melting oven for 1 kg of gold
This is the front panel of the small melting oven for gold. The maximum quantity for this melting oven is 1 kg of gold. This melting oven is ideal for scrap gold or gold nuggets. When recovering the gold from tailing heaps on mining sites in Tanzania, Uganda or Kenya, such gold often contains mercury. In that case it is advisable to first separate mercury by using retorts. After separation of mercury such melting oven as this one may be used to melt the final gold. Flux such as borax shall be used…
- Gold melting methods and handlings
On these pages you may find some of gold melting methods and handlings. One would first need to consider all the safety precautions while melting gold. In the next step one need to know how to melt the gold properly. Not all types of gold are to be melted with the same method. Special precaution and care shall be given when handling any gold that would contain mercury. Even though our company do not buy or trade with gold that contains mercury, we often recover mercury from tailings, and in the case usage of retorts is necessary to prevent any contamination or disposal of mercury.
- Should I engage into gold cyanidation business?
This question is often answered by East African miners by actually engaging into gold cyanidation business. Some of them are winning, majority of them are loosing fortunes, and even if making it profitable, they are still loosing a lot of gold while endangering environment, animals, fish and crops around them. In the program Start Your Own Gold Mine we are not using any cyanidation methods. Out of this conversation an intelligent mind may find clues and indications that may be useful before deciding to engage into any type of gold cyanidation and leaching methods.

- The jaws of the jaw crusher
Here are the jaws of the jaw crusher Crocodile. Some improvements have been made to bring the smooth rocks down the jaws to be "eaten". We may need or not these improvements, yet we are going to handle tens of tonnes of rocks by using this crusher. These jaws are made out of manganese. Manganese, Mn, atomic number 25 -- a hard brittle grey polyvalent metallic element that resembles iron but is not magnetic; used in making steel; occurs in many minerals.
- Parts of jaw crusher in good shape
These are the parts of the jaw crusher Crocodile which may be observed to be in a good shape. There is little to be broken here. The materials are hard and almost indestructible. We estimate tens of tonnes of rocks to be crusher per hour once we move it to Tanzania and/or Uganda where we have our small scale gold mining businesses. And we are opening new businesses.
- The wheel of the jaw crusher
This is one of the heavy wheels of a jaw crusher that is large enough to handle tens of tonnes of rocks per hour. This crusher have been produced by former Yugoslavian company FAGRAM from the city of Smederevo in the today's Serbia. It is durable. It has good quality materials. And it has been built to last.
- Jaw crushers for rocks and gold bearing ore used in program to Start Your Own Gold Mine
We are presenting our work related to jaw crushers for hard rock gold bearing ores as they are wanted, purchased, and used in the program Start Your Own Gold Mine in Tanzania or in Uganda or otherwise used by our company GOLDIVANTI LP or GOLDIVANTI GOLD LIMITED in Uganda. The jaw is made usually of hard manganese enhanced plates and strong inertia forces. The hard rock crushing capacity is usually nothing less than 10 tonnes of hard rock per hour. Such rock crushing capacity gives the opportunity to produce even several hundreds of pure grams of gold per day if not half a kilogram or kilogram of gold. As a primary crusher, after the jaw crusher one need to use the rock milling machines.
- Chapati preparation on streets of Busia, Uganda
This is how Ugandan chapati is being prepared directly on the street. It is very tasty food especially when hungry and there is nothing else around.
- Truck moving the ores to mineral processing place
This is how it looks like, the road is dusty, trucks are bringing ores to mineral processing places.
- Driving through Busia city in Uganda
This is Busia city and we are driving along the road.
- Truck full of ore on its way to processing
This is small truck full of ore, we think it is loaded with about 2 tonnes of ore. It is called "one trip". One trip may contain from 0.50-1 grams to 4-5 grams of ore, if the ore have been taken from surface or represents overburden. If it is primary ore, it may contain 5-20 grams of gold and more.
- Popular Mining Encyclopedia of Action Mining arrived to Uganda
The Popular Mining Encyclopedia as issued by Action Mining, finally arrived to Uganda. I had to push the postman to go by motorcycle to Tororo city, and come to Busia, so that I can get the encyclopedia into my hands. It contains such powerful information and plans for gold mining and recovery equipment.
- Jean Louis in Busia
I am fetching money from the ATM machine in Busia, that was nice hot day before my departure to Europe.

- Visit to SAMA Syanyonja Artisan Miners' Association in Busia, Uganda
This picture have been made few days after my visit to SAMA Syanyonja Artisan Miners' Alliance and demonstration mine promoting fairtrade gold, in association with EWAD and Fairtrade, where they state that they do not employ children in their mine.
- Fancy insect passing over
This is nice fancy insect passing over. Is it going to convert to butterfly? We do not know. I just know I like it.
- Children in Uganda
These children we met playing on the mining site. That sounds dangerous and it is. Yet we cannot control families and their children and mining site was not under our control. We did warn them to take care and be careful. They liked our visit.
- The excavated open pit
This is excavated open pit that was explored by artisanal miners some years before. Small number of miners are still working in this area and recovering gold every day. Majority of them abandoned the sites and went to new gold rush locations.
- Mr. Louis in front of the open pit
The open pit behind me is possible gold mining opportunity that we may explore in soonest future.
- Previous mining locations
On these locations many artisanal miners have previously recovered gold and lived from it. Today many are still there even though the majority of miners abandoned the place and went somewhere else. So is the gold rush in Uganda.
- Dirty feet
Those are my dirty feet and shoes in Uganda.
- Travel to prospecting location in Uganda
This is picture of our travel today on 15th January 2018 to the new prospecting and prospective location. On such new location we have gold mining opportunity to obtain new ores and process it. The location was occupied by artisanal miners before some years.
- Preparation of rudimentary sluice for ore processing in Uganda
This is rudimentary sluice that is being prepared by our neighboring miners. In my opinion this type of the sluice is way to wide, not evenly balanced, with too steep slopes, and too high to load it with the ores. We cannot recommend small scaler miners and artisanal miners to make this type of sluices. That is inefficient as it requires much energy, material will not be evenly spread and gold would be lost.
- Mr. Okedi collecting concentrates from looped carpets
Looped carpets or miners' moss or 3M Nomad type of a carpets are used to efficiently recover gold larger than 50 mesh, gold nuggets, flakes and larger gold. On the end of the day and multiple times of day, concentrates are collected from such carpets.
- Mr. Louis doing practical field assay of gold
Mr. Louis is doing here practical field assay of gold content in some soil. Similar method may be used to concentrate gold from the operation and to determine how much was recovered.
- Magnified flat gold nugget in the gold pan
This is magnified and flat gold nugget in the pan. It is probably flat due to the previous ball mill processing, it was smashed and became flat.
- Small nuggets recovered
Small flat nuggets are also found in concentrates and recovered by using super-concentration and simple gold panning methods.
- Mercury gold and mercury ball in the gold pan
This is how it looks like when many gold particles are connected or amalgamated together with mercury. Miners used mercury in recovery of gold, and lost it in heaps of tailings. We are recovering both the mercury and the gold from such tailings, without using new mercury or introducing new mercury in the process.
- The mercury gold once again
This is mercury gold once again shown in the gold pan after fine gold concentration process. We do not use mercury, we recover it as side effect.
- Mercury recovered from concentrates
Instead of nice yellow gold, our gold looks as silver like, as it is mixed with mercury. Heaps of tailings are polluted with mercury and our recovery is such that we cannot see it yellow any more unless it is either microscopic, as such could not be connected to mercury or too large as nugget, as such also did not connect to mercury.
- The fine gold recovery system
This is fine gold recovery system that helps us concentrate all the gold smaller than 50 mesh.
- Gold is recovered in form of mercury
Heaps of tailings are polluted by mercury from previous mining operation. We are recovering mercury as well with the gold, and later dispose safely with the pollutant. Mercury is not used in our operation. We recover mercury from nature.
- Fine gold recovery system
This is fine gold recovery systems, we are using the genious methods invented by smart microscopist from Oregon for purposes of mercury free gold recovery.
- Concentrate is being processed
Mr. Louis is processing the remaining concentrates and process is fast. It is possible to process multiple buckets of concentrates after work, and to get to the fine gold within 15 minutes.
- The gold recovery system
This is view from my working place on the gold recovery system for all gold smaller than 50 mesh, down to 5 microns. This fine gold can be recovered, totally without using mercury and by using simplest set theory in mathematics applied practically. Many people make a question how a set theory may be applied practically, and that is exactly how our gold recovery system works, by using the set theory and by removing those parts of material not containing or containing gold.
- Buckets of concentrate are today processed for gold
The buckets of concentrate are today processed for gold. In general, our bulk of concentrate is not large. These many buckets contain various particle sizes and types of gold, and help in sorting out what we were doing. We can then determine which heap of tailing was better productive.
- Children panning for gold on mining site
These children are panning for gold on mining site in a dangerous and polluted environment. Each heap of tailings is polluted with mercury. Children are in constant contact with mercury while playing and working on the mining site. We do not endorse such activities. This is report from neighboring sites where we do not have control.
- Heaps of tailings being milled again and processed
These heaps of tailings are being milled again with the rudimentary locally made hammer crusher that runs in wet mode. The material is then processed on small looped carpet sluices. The hammer crusher is spending about 25,000 Ugs. per day on hammers alone, which is about US $6.95.
- Buckets of concentrate on the end of the day
The buckets of concentrates are collected on the end of the day. The picture is dark for that reason that it was evening without light.
- Mercury coated gold have silver color
This is mercury coated gold, and it has a shiny silver color.
- Gold nuggets magnified in the gold pan
These gold nuggets are magnified 10x in the gold pan.
- Types of gold nuggets recovered
Here are small gold nuggets recovered in concentrate of today.
- Type of small gold nuggets we are recovering
This is one type of small gold nuggets we are recovering from heaps of tailings in Uganda.
- Coarse gold or smallest gold nuggets are found
In the previous concentrate we found multiple nuggets of 1-4 millimeter mostly of flake shape due to ball hammering them flat in ball mills.
- Dish wash to settle finest gold particles down from the surface of water
The dish wash is used to settle finest gold particles down into the water as they may float and go out during the gold panning verification.
- Mr. Louis filling the drum of water
The drum is filled with water for the verification of gold collection in 2 hours of work. We are making scientific yet practical and field measurements of gold recovery.
- Purchasing manager verifying gold particles on the sluice
Purchasing manager is verifying the gold particles on the sluice.
- Mr. Louis in front of the heap of tailings
This heap of tailings was processed as of the day of publishing of this picture.
