You've asked a very intelligent question! I asked the same question & found the answer in the technology of the day since there were no known books that wrote about what went on & what were they doing & why. After a lot of research, a startling picture emerged showing a completely different one than what I was thinking. History did not record that part of America & therefore left a void, which is what you are looking at. Well good luck in your endeavors.

I have read several books that state the Spanish used dowsing to locate gold, silver, and other precious metals. Google "De re metallica", they were known to use the techniques in this book, (written by German Georgius Agricola) Alas, I have had no luck dowsing, but have known people who swear by it.

Some priest's logs I read revealed a more practical way of locating minerals in a foreign land. They brought along an ore sample to show the natives along the way. This simple method saved countless days & months searching through the mountains. The priests were trained geologist also.

They, Kings, etc., were highly motivated for money & exploration as conquering their neighbors had become too problem-matic, and there were some small countries that easily became rich thru foreign trading with ocean-like ships. So, thru their technology of compass, astrolabe, charts, math, & so on, they sailed far beyond their flat world to places like our known America. (America had been discovered many times before.) When here they exploited anything they could systematicly thru their technology & religion. This is what I found & if you research, then you can fill in the blanks in my above description. Good luck.
