    Do you have the high seas expansion?
    Do you have any luck?
    Are you mining in the right place? ie dungeons, Ilshenar or from a boat.

    I think it was the UO Guide that also said that if you are going to hit the saltpeter, you will get it on the first swing on that spot. I had decent luck in Ilshenar around the Spiritulaity moongate. From the gate you can walk in either direction along a mountain in relative safety. Hit a spot and if no saltpeter, take 5 steps and try again. Repeat until you hit a vein.

    Note: I had good luck doing this when I first got High Seas around Christmas time, but have not tried for saltpeter in a couple of months....

    Make a macro in UO Assist just clicking on your mining tools ( shovel or pick) and just wear a high luck suit and just do what SlayerofBunnys said. Just move around in spots.
