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!

    • So after my little nugget find i was excited to get back on the river and hunt for more. Well this time i get down to the water where i found the nugget and start working some bedrock when a local guy on the other side tells me to come over to his side. He had asked me how i was doing and when i mentioned i have never found any gold larger than a gram that's when he decided to give me a little help. First of all he told me i was on the wrong side, and that he was on the inside bend. I thought i know this but i found my nugget on the other side, but i figured he knows what he's talking about i could tell his side was a bit more on the inside bend. I get more excited when he tells me last week he helped a young veteran out by showing him where to look and the guy found a beautiful 1oz nugget with quartz rounded like a ball. So he tells me i can keep whatever i find under a oz after that we split it.  Then he says oh yea keep an eye out for iron meteorites! I'm thinking this is too good, and after 3 hours of panning it was feeling like i was doing better on the other side. My time was running out and i had not really found much but some fine gold, so on my way out i saw a hole in the bedrock and i just scooped up what i could and threw it in the bucket with hopes when i got home i would pan out some gold. No gold when i got home, but when i ran the detector over my tailings something sounded off, and turns out i caught a fresh water chondrite badly weathered but visable chondrules and free metal.
    • Hey thanks everyone, this ties my record for biggest nugget, still waiting for the day i find my first full gram+ . 
    • Maybe coasters for big mug of your choicest drink. 
    • shellac is a moisture barrier, works great for wood and metal. easy to restore.
    • Only when they stick out to me in my fields haha.  I want to find out what this is made of first, these green translucent crystals only appear with light behind it, otherwise that same area is black.  I just started rock slicing, I used to just carve into them.  Any suggestions on what what to do with them?
