METEORITE HUNTING and COLLECTING

For Discussion related to hunting and collecting of Meteorites With or Without a Metal Detector


Meteorite 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.

Well the rules here are a bit different as I welcome meteorites for sale you have collected or found yourself, but no store or dealer ads at any time and this includes eBay links! Naturally the main reason for this forum is education, but collecting is also a big part of this subject. So No crappy or degrading posts or they will be deleted, other than that post away!

Bill

    • My panning tubs are cement mixing tubs from Home Depot.  I transport water in 5 gallon buckets.  If you guys have a drywasher, that's one way to pan the cons out.  
    • You could always bring 10 gal. of water and a tub to pan in.  Dry creeks are a lot easier to dig in than one that keeps filling up with water.  Tom H.  
    • Tough to tell from the photo, but the ground-window picts, around the edge of the grind where I would expect to see a thin layer of fusion crust I do not see anything resembling; it appears to be more of an oxidation coating than a fusion crust.  Also tough to tell from the photo is if the interior is metal, or is it a semi-metallic luster like you'd get from filing hematite/magnetite? Regmaglypt size is a function of the size of the body upon which they form.  I would expect reg's on a rock of this size to be respectively larger, and not as uniform in size/spacing. Also, if you look at the pict of the ground-window, there's a crack running through the rock there, and the crack is evident on the outer black portion.  If the black exterior was fusion crust, that crack would not be visible on the outside.  And if it were solid metal, it would not crack like that. Therefore, from what we have here, I think you found a wicked meteorwrong, but it really needs to be looked at in person.
    • Electrician, I’ve found it very hard to get any reviews of a specific area unless the club you belong to has a website that allows members to post reviews to.  The GPAA allows member reviews for the claims. I’ve found water very spotty in Arizona.  When the GPAA had claims along the river in Black Canyon city, I only saw the water running once in the dozen times I went out there.  The other times there was water, but in puddles every mile or so, and sometimes not on the claims. Even Lynx creek is spotty, although you can usually dig deep enough and the bottom of the hole will fill up.
