Pitt Lake - Mundie McRea:  Mundie McRea was a well known and respected dowser.  His phenomenal abilities and pin-point accuracy was utilized by prospectors, mining companies and geologists alike.  He located copper deposits at the Copper Mountain Mine in Princeton when company geologists were unsuccessful.  McRea's most famous find was in 1971 when he located the Lost Silver Bar's in Slocan; Canadian Financial Journal News Story.
