PROSPECTORS LOUNGE

This section is a little different and the place to post prospecting questions, birthdays, and talk not directly related to other sections of the forum, but still related to gold prospecting. No Political or religious posts will be allowed please and will be deleted by staff


Prospectors Lounge Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • If it turns out to be pyrite, you can take a bit and crush and pan.  That will show any free gold.  If there is gold in the pyrite, it can be separated chemically, and won't show crushing.  The chemistry is well beyond me of separating gold from pyrite. If it were gold, you could also crush it, but I'd think hard about whether there's a specimen inside.  Crushing would ruin a specimen.
    • Thanks, guys. I suspect pyrite myself. By the way, how do you edit a post? I don't see an edit button anywhere. I mentioned hiking 15 miles, and didn't mean to claim I did that each day...LOL At 69, those 15 mile days are well-behind me. I did do 15 miles over the three days,  but the longest day was 6.8. If I tried to do 15, I'd still be laying out there. In fact, coming off the hill, I got a reminder of how I felt. See below.  
    • To me its layed out like pyrite. But it does have the color. If that was gold, the GoldBug would definitely bang on it. And other VLFs. Thats a pretty good size chunk in there.
