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!

    • Happy Birthday Chet!! Hope to see you out there soon! Jeff
    • Obviously, gold is an element that exists in many places in our universe and beyond. The earth had to have some when it was formed and my guess is that at least some came later as the earth was bombarded by countless projectiles of varying size and shape.   My experience and knowledge is very limited but one crystalline nugget I found not far from Sulfur, Nevada made me think that gold was somehow chemically leached out of low grade ore or soil only to reform as, well, see the nugget photo below.  Reading this article added to my intrigue... Iridium in undersea crater confirms asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs "A separate study of the cores done in 2019 reveals that the crater rock has been depleted of sulphur when compared to surrounding limestone. This suggests that the impact blew large amounts of sulphur into the air, where it would have contributed to the cooling and then fallen as acid rain – making the situation on the ground even worse." https://physicsworld.com/a/iridium-in-undersea-crater-confirms-asteroid-wiped-out-the-dinosaurs/
    • Anyone happen to have an SP24 5"x9.5" or SP22 8" round coil for the Simplex+. Would prefer the SP24 but will consider SP22 for right price.  Thanks
