    Hello from Reno!

    Well i joined awhile back but just getting around to introduction. I got hooked at gold hill back in 2013 when i found my first .5 nugget. We had just been trained by a guy named Mel who lived in Congress. He was with Arizona outback i think. I was living Flagstaff before moving to Reno and spent lots of time hunting for anything my gpx could find. I have found coins, jewelry and meteorites plus all kinds of historic trash. I also got into panning and sniping this year, but not much luck yet. Also just added the monster to my tool box and have been finding all kinds of tiny targets, but no gold yet, love that gold monster. I look forward to learning more and more from you guys, thanks for having me here!

    Nevada Mining Display

    This is a mining display built for Newmount and Barrick gold corps. designed to get kids interested in a career in the mining industry. I also built one for Elko and Battle Mt. The display comes with an inter active touch screen computer that takes you on a virtual tour of a Nevada mine. In the center there are pictures of gold, silver, copper, barite, and others when you touch the button next to the picture the corresponding mineral example lights up on the right or left. I was lucky to get the work thanks to my wife who just started last year working for NDOM, that's Nevada division of minerals. Now maybe with a little more help from my wife maybe i can find some gold nuggets!

    Swampstomper Al Needs Some Good Thoughts and Prayers

    Thinking about you Swamp, hope you are back on your feet soon, miss your input and stories.

    What is this?

    Does it attract a magnet, or try a streak test. If you don't have a piece of tile use the top of your toilet lid. Use the unfinished surface on the inside to scratch your rock on. You are looking to see if the rock will leave any color streak. If you have no streak or not much, you may have a meteorite.
