  1. AZ Meteorite Sells For $237,500

    How do you know the claim or land owners around the Barringer Crater aren't actively searching or allowing others to search for them?
  2. Weird egg shaped formation

    Looks like calcite.
  3. AZ Meteorite Sells For $237,500

    That's a really nice one. I wonder who found it and when?
  4. What's on the two plates? Looks yummy. Very nice gold by the way. Thanks for posting.
  5. Meteorite?

    Definitely not a meteorite. Looks like slag.
  6. Hi all.

    You can always prospect in the big city. https://www.google.com/amp/s/nypost.com/2011/06/20/got-his-mined-in-the-gutter/amp/#ampshare=https://nypost.com/2011/06/20/got-his-mined-in-the-gutter/
  7. Gold display

    Dan Terrific finds. Congrats to you and the kids. Did everything come from you know where? Also, I can see why you want some you know what.
  8. And if are thinking about extracting gold from sea water. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.atlasobscura.com/articles/gold-ocean-sea-hoax-science-water-boom-rush-treasure.amp#ampshare=https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/gold-ocean-sea-hoax-science-water-boom-rush-treasure
  9. Since I mentioned ocean mining in my previous post, here's a little historical sidenote. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Azorian
  10. https://www.economist.com/news/science-and-technology/21717351-fruits-de-mer-plucking-minerals-seabed-back-agenda These manganese nodules were discovered back in the late 1800's, and since the 60's they've been trying to mine the seabeds economically without success. It's just a matter of time before it happens at some point in the future. With more advances in AI, they'll probably develop completely autonomous underwater mining robots that will operate with little human assistance. I used to have a 10 + pound box of manganese nodules, courtesy of Kennecott Copper when I was a kid. They were oblong, blackish brown ugly looking rocks. Also had a neat paperweight with a small nodule imbedded in it. That was years ago and I've downsized considerably and no longer have them.
  11. The Nugget Only Thread, Past finds and New

    Very nice nugget. Congrats to your friend. May I ask what he was using?
  12. Do Better Headphones Mean More Gold?

    The best headphones I ever used were the Koss TD81's and the KW100's. The latter was a joint venture between Koss and Whites Electronics. While they had the best sound, they weren't made for field use. Both of those models were discontinued years ago. The only pair I have now are the Black Widows but those are insufficient for my needs. I have a pretty severe hearing loss and have yet to find anything suitable for me. Can't find headphones with enough decibels to where I need to turn the volume down. Otherwise I'm probably missing signals.
  13. As big as the Old Woman Meteorite was, you'd think some pieces would have splintered off upon entry or impact. Yet none was found to the best of my knowledge. Isn't that a little odd?
  14. Meteorite identification

    It's definitely not a meteorite.
  15. NQ Explorer's hit San Domingo Wash

    Why in the world would they come to this country to detect for gold? That's like going to McDonald's for French food. With all the gold in Australia, they must have had a really good reason.
