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

    • It looks like 20 kg. of quartz to me. You calculate the amount of gold in quartz with a specific gravity test. Take one of those specimens and do an SG. That will give a prospective buyer an idea of how much gold might be in the rock.  It honestly does not look like gold in the photos. If it is gold and you are truly getting beads from it then it is worth something. How much exactly will depend on a specific gravity calculation that will determine the amount of gold in each rock. Lots of people buy gold. Not many buy ore like that for display. Most of the people here are not too interested in buying ore. They are more interested in finding it. But if you can quantify the amount of gold you have then it will be much easier for a buyer to estimate what it is actually worth.
    • Must be the quality of the pics.  I expect gold to be shiny and gold looking.  Even the picture in your last post of the panned gold does not look like gold. You're the one doing all the work and crushing and smelting.  It’s a shame the pictures do not reflect all that work you put in. Is the gold you melted pass a continuity check with a multimeter?
    • @Red_desert He's not asking you if you published any of the books you referenced, he asking you for that info from the books in question, you seemed to have said you found them on your bookshelf when you posted this..."I looked on the shelf and located the 2 mining history books"..., so can you not open them and relay the publishing info, etc. that he's asking for?
    • I watched the trailer. It looked like something I would probably enjoy. I don't watch movies very often these days. But if I find myself in the movie mood and "Nomadland" is on the list I will certainly watch it. I will see "Nomadland" because you posted about it. You have enriched my life a little with your post and I appreciate that Slim. That was a beautiful gesture and I want you to know I am grateful. Do you know any nomads with interesting stories Slim? Do you have any insights on the nomad lifestyle you would like to share with us?
    • I don't know bob, but it looks like you are arguing with yourself. Have you seen the movie yet?
