METEORITE HUNTING and COLLECTING

For Discussion related to hunting and collecting of Meteorites With or Without a Metal Detector


Meteorite Forum 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.

Well the rules here are a bit different as I welcome meteorites for sale you have collected or found yourself, but no store or dealer ads at any time and this includes eBay links! Naturally the main reason for this forum is education, but collecting is also a big part of this subject. So No crappy or degrading posts or they will be deleted, other than that post away!

Bill

    • Been traveling around Colorado. Beautiful state with a rich mining history. In Telluride now for a few days. Just chilling out after 7 days of camping and being off grid here and there. Been visiting national parks and mining country. Lots of country to beep and prospect. Endless mines and hiking. Hope you are all staying cool wherever you are. Getting back on the road soon. Life is good. Enjoy the pics... No visible gold but screams on the Gold Bug. Lots of pyrite showing. Gold and pyrite do run together so we'll know more when we crush it. Nice molybdenum specimen. Some cubic pyrites. My daughter and I at the Old 100. Very cool tour with neat history.  A nice quartz slab with gold and pyrites. Met some kids from Missouri on the tour who wanted to see some "real gold" so we showed them some. Inside the Old 100. Massive pegmatites in gneiss and schist at the Black Canyon of the Gunnision. Only 2,500 feet down to the river.  Hiking the Black Canyon. 3 pics from La Plata Canyon. A great mining history here. Met two guys while hiking who had sluices and pans who were on their way somewhere. Once we began talking gold they had to leave all the sudden. Think they were worried about their honey hole being discovered. Can't blame them for being cautious.  Big mudslides below Sawpit and Placerville. It's rained every afternoon. Sometimes it's light, other times very heavy.  3 off road pics. Lots of opportunity for those who wander. A nice morning in Telluride.  
    • For those thinking of doing chair webbing, this is the result of sitting for four months in the sun.  I believe the chair webbing is made of Polypro.  Installed in Sunny, central AZ in March, and broke the same July.  The original canvas cloth cover lasted 10 years.  I got the idea off of redoing the old aluminum chairs, but this new webbing is not designed to last.  I understand the AZ sunshine destroys stuff, but should have been more than 4 months.  My advice, spend the extra few bucks and get the canvas replacement.
    • I presume most people reading this forum are smart enough to avoid getting caught in a flooded wash but there's lots of folks that aren't. Here's some current road reports along with some photos.... https://twitter.com/mohaveroads
