Q. How accurate is the original Cameron Aurameter in locating oil and gas deposits?

A. There are at least three dowsing instruments that have a proven track record for locating oil and gas deposits over the years.

  • Gyrating devices, such as the Pendulum
  • The Petroleometer (the latter is no longer available today)
  • The Original Cameron Aurameter.

For dowsing purposes, the combination of Pendulum and original Cameron Aurameter on assignments, both provide wholistic coverage, as the sources of oil and gas radiate spiral (rotating) fields of energy upwards. These emanations may be easily detected with a Pendulum. After the location(s) of subterranean source(s) have been determined, the Original Cameron Aurameter adds valuable dowsing input, enabling one to search for, and outline the size of anticlines, reef pinnacles, pools etc. The Aurameter, also alows one to guage intensities, pressures and estimate depths.

In addition, one may dowse to evaluate qualities and quantities; plus investigate the possible presence, and depths, of troubling subterranean water, which might adversely affect oil drilling operations at a potential recovery site.

The Original Cameron Aurameter is a five-fold dowsing instrument: working as a directional and depthing device; an upright (inverted) pendulum and gravity wand.

The Cameron Aurameter, also rotates downward as a gravity pendulum. Initially, I occasionally prefer to use one or more of several basic pendulums while working with an "oil witness" or actual "sample." The latter may be obtained from an already existing well at the location.

Verne Cameron's "Oil Locating" handbook" - described on our web site - describes his years of successful oil and gas dowsing discoveries using his invention: the Petroleometer, along with the Original Cameron Aurameter, in siting oil and gas deposits over a four decade period, prior to 1970.

Our Professional Aurameter is also excellent for this type of work.
