  1. 24 hour Gold

    Well dug, looks like fun!!
  2. Thanks for sharing Rocky, not boring to me and i have to hand it to a man who will spend time hunting in such difficult conditions! It's always a reward to be free outdoors so much to find. Keep up the hunt and i hope you trip over 5kg pallasite!
  3. Helping a newcomer, and getting gold nuggets

    Things are looking good down south, way to go Dave helping others find that big smile! Your a great example and looks like you got what you deserve.
  4. My Collection

    Pretty cool idea, never saw anyone do that to their meteorites, just don't drop'em might roll away! Very impressive collection
  5. Best coil choice for GPX

    Hi azdigger, i have the same set up and i have found the mono coil is my choice. I usually hunt irons, and so if you have a couple sample meteorites you might try testing both coils on irons and stones. Not sure, but curious now if DD works better on stones. I will try my own test and see which i found works best. If all you want to find is an iron then i would choose the mono!
  6. Finally joined the 1oz+ club

    Killer nuggets! oh your soo happy!
  7. Slag or possible meteorite

    Hey Metworks, for $20 you can have a real lab test your suspects. Look up New England Met. lab and you will find the info needed. Good luck, l love me some mesosiderite!
  8. I am not the chondrite expert, but i have never heard of a meteorite that flows liquid, and drys white crystal. Still like Bill said Wow, those are some pictures. I think # 4 and #5 are interesting. Thanks for sharing, and good luck with classification. If you are looking for somewhere to send your suspects. Look into New England Met. Lab they are great and only costs $20.
  9. Interesting looking??

    Hi Rocky, i suggest if you want to have your suspect tested, send it to New England Met. Lab. It will cost you $20 and you will get results pretty fast about a week.
  10. Kicked the SKUNK.......FINALLY.

    Yes! what a good feeling, and look forward to seeing more!
  11. 2 coins and some cool stuff

    Good night! looks like you guys had a blast and i love the the boar coin too, but not to belittle the rest of your loot. Awesome finds!
  12. 12 hr night hunt.

    What a cool idea, thanks for sharing night hunters!
  13. Happy Birthday Nugget108

    Happy Birthday from the biggest little city!
  14. Lorian swamp basin.

    I may be getting off topic a bit, but wet/dry i am curious and would like to know more about what you are talking about when you say iron meteorites must have at least 3% nickel. I am very interested in the possibility of irons with very low to trace amounts only of nickel.
  15. Another Franconia find

    Wow your on a roll, maybe you found a hot pocket. Any idea on the largest meteorite pulled out of the area? Keep up the swinging looks like you have moved into the big fish zone! Happy hunting HT
