Forum Guidelines

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 wonder if it could have been a carbonaceous chondrite instead of coal.    
    • I have found specimens of similar gold in magnetite/hematite in the Holcomb Valley near Big Bear California. Van Dusen Canyon in that area is named after Jed Van Dusen, a blacksmith- turned-gold miner during the Big Bear Gold Rush of the 1860's. Claiming that the black sand from Holcomb Valley could be smelted into high grade steel, he urged the miners to sell him their concentrates, from which he secretly extracted the gold. Van Dusen became rich. Nobody knew how or where he got his gold, and when he died there was a great effort put forth to find "Van Dusen's Mine." Since there was no "mine," none was found. Thus the legend developed of "Van Dusen's LOST Mine." BTW nice find! HH Jim
    • Just based on the sheen, I'd say it's gem silica. imho....
    • I.just love the gold in magnetite contrast. Nice find. All we need now is a cheap, magnet based detector so we can find pieces like this. Seems a lot of this gold in magnetite is found in Australia..
