Nugget Shooter Gold Nugget Forum Rules

First off let me welcome you to the Nugget-Shooter Forum,



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.

    • I like the way you presented your theory and good pictures to go with it. The area we spoke about having a steep face 90 degree zone does look similar to a roll over lip. Roll over lip referrers to the shape that can form while the meteorite is traveling through the atmosphere. The thing about the idea of your iron being a piece inside of a larger body of iron, is that it should still have the Widdy pattern. I do know someone in the department at Wisconsin, she is good geologist that we know, i will see if she saw your suspect. Bottom line in my opinion is you have a good example of what a meteorite can look like, but just not quite there. I have found a few pieces i thought were for sure the real deal, but you can't argue with science, at least i don't. Here's a sample of my iron meteor wrongs. 
    • What if they were looting and burning down buildings in YOUR neighborhood? What would you want the police to do? Stand there and watch?

    • After some review and learning more about what makes a Meteorite, I think I have a explaination for the plan or non-conforming characteristics.  It goes something like this... 1.  The piece I found is the center or middle section of a somewhat larger meteorite.  Most of the top and bottom are missing and I am left with the burger patty of a once hole hamburger meteorite.  I pursume these broke off early into it's flight with earth's atmosphere.  This center peice became bent when reaching the surface and now supports a slight twist like a thin 8. Supporting attributes: A.  The outside rim supports numerious regmaglypts (Figure A.1 | A.2 | A.3 | A.4)                                                                                            Figure A.1                                                                                                Figure A.2                                                         Figure A.3                                                     Figure A.4   B.  Flows.  There are a number of flows along the rough edge which would supprt breaking up of the piece before impact (Figure B.1 | B.2 | B.3 | B.4 | B.5)  and could explain the 90 degree shelf alone one side.                                                                                              Figure B.1                                                                              Figure B.2                                  Figure B.3                    Figure B.4 (Close up of B.1)                                     Figure B.5
