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.

    • That looks really nice Tom !  Congrats on your new ride  
    • It is a nice piece of ore. Why do anything with it at all? It is a great find and would probably make a nice piece of jewelry if'n you are into that kind of thing. Otherwise I couldn't think of a reason to do a darn thing to it. 
    • Will iron shavings follow it after you stick a neo on it? Being magnetic is one thing. Having magnetism is a completely different property. All magnetite is magnetic but only some displays magnetism.  You might have a gold nugget that will make black sand stand on end when it passes under it.  Wouldn't that be something? 
    • The ones taken from St. Cloud mines were packed in corn starch to support them. Corn starch is used to protect delicate fossils and animal specimens too.  I bet something weird and light like fumed silica could be poured over them to fill the voids. Anyhoo, they usually sift in light material they can vacuum out with a little dental suction tool. They use thixotropic liquids to support the latticework of DNA. If they can do that then I bet there is a high tech way to pack and unpack a sea urchin made of alum powder.
    • Very nice, Bill; it pays to check your magnet, sometimes! fred
