Uri advises on mineral detection

THE hocus pocus surrounding the Indonesian Bre-X gold fiasco is far from over. Psychic and spoonbender Uri Geller says he would like to get involved.
The Israeli-born 51-year-old runs his own consultancy business helping mining firms who are having problems finding gold deposits. Instead of using more conventional methods, Uri practices through a technique called aerial dowsing.
By being flown over possible gold sites with his hands stretched out of the plane door, he can tell whether there is anything worth investigating below through “magnetic sensations” on his palms and fingertips.
Uri says he would have insisted on doing things differently had he been approached by Bre-X. He always recommends that more conventional methods are used to confirm his judgment: “When a find of this nature is announced, it is always best to go to a second or third opinion to validate it.”
According to Uri, had this happened at the Busang sites in Borneo, Bre-X could have avoided its subsequent share price collapse on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
