Rock and Mineral 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.

    • That nuggie has some great characteristics in it.  Is that a little piece of quartz I see there?      Old Tom 
    • Hi to everyone, I'm not sure if I introduced myself previously. Just getting back from nowhere. Anyway,  retired, 62 yr old male, veteran, fulltiming in my rv with my dog mikey. Although I'm looking for a few acres to buy where I could plant this rv and call it home base. I'm starting to get tired of driving around in circles. A few yrs back I decided to put on my last hat. Prospecter/ rockhound. Hasn't really took off yet. Doing research, bought some equipment, metal detectors, joined some clubs. Right now I'm in the Rye Patch NV area for a month. Trying out my GM 1000 and looking at land for sale. I have been hiking the mountains in this area, finding spectacular hidden springs, green gullies, bedrock formations, lots of cows. Not what I expected. And still no flakes or nuggets. I've come to realize that it's my own shortcomings that are getting in the way. i.e. frustration, impatience, procrastination, social isolation, (that's a big one). I need a better understanding of navigating public lands, gps. A place to call home with a mailing address would be a plus. That is me in a nutshell. I would like to ask this community for advice, direction, any help, or criticisms, not only for prospecting minerals, also personal hurdles I've mentioned above. I hope to make some friends and maybe meet and share stories along the way.      With Respect, Stephen 
    • oh yeah.   Now you have the have a key decision to make ... how you'll give her a golden shower.  Umm...  that came out wrong.   I guess what I am trying to say is are you going to do any more cleaning to that beauty?
