MINER'S RIGHTS and LAND USE

This forum is strictly for the discussion of land usage restriction and Miners rights issues we face and how to deal with them.


Miners Rights 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.

    • Thankyou for your insight!! 
    • Diggingd,  I believe that your ID of the samples is correct. 
    • Missy, They are all certainly not meteorites. They look basaltic. Iron in rocks is very common and not a good indicator alone of a meteorite. Take a look at your rock(s). If it glistens like a crystal structure (ie: quartz) at any point in the rock it can’t be a meteorite. If it has layers, it can’t be a meteorite, it’s sedimentary. If it has small gas bubbles in it, it can’t be a meteorite. It’s basalt. If it is moderately magnetic it is not a meteorite. If there is a thick crust on it, it can’t be a meteorite. File off a corner or cut it. It won’t diminish it’s value. If there is all bright silvery metal it can’t be a meteorite. If it is all grey metal it can’t be a meteorite. If there is black crust as thin as a fingernail, and crazing on the outside of the rock, it might be a meteorite. If there are small silver specks visible in the filed off section, it might be meteorite. There are billions of magnetic rocks in the US, none of which are meteorites. Anyone can find magnetic earth stones nearly everywhere. Just take a strong magnet and drop into sand and you will see what I mean. Check our O Richard Norton’s, “Rocks from Space” or visit the ASU Meteorite Center or similar meteorite display venue. Keep looking down. They are are out there. Cheers! billpeters
    • I'm hoping to use that ability to my advantage. Detector arrived yesterday, and I got the battery charged, and everything adjusted to fit me. The instructions aren't kidding, it took all of 8 hours to charge from dead flat. Today should be amusing. In keeping with "new gear rules", that apply to every hobby, it's blowing 20+mph here, and 35 degrees. A wise man might wait for better weather. Not gonna happen. It's likely be a short day, but I will go out for an hour or two. Instruction manual in on hand, detector in the other, and dressed up like Kenny from South Park. Lol Regards,  Kyle
