COINS, TREASURE, and RELICS

This forum is dedicated to the hunting of coins and relics with a metal detector.


Coin and Relic Forum Rules

First off let me welcome you to the Nugget-Shooter Coin and relic Forum,

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.

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 posts are not permitted here and surly you can find other forums that host those discussions, 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 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 about metal detecting for coin and relic related subjects, and play nice.

Bill Southern

    • In the old LR200 system a claim was classed as ACTIVE, CLOSED or PENDING. There was no FILED class. We have recently received an explanation of the meaning of FILED from the BLM MLRS staff. Here's the explanation Land Matters received from the BLM National Operations Center last week.   "Formerly, when a case was PENDING, it meant that the case was entered to LR2000 with only the information that the filing of the new claim or site had been received.  No other data had yet been entered.  In MLRS, PENDING is no longer used and the initial case disposition after payment has been submitted is FILED.  The case stays in a FILED status until adjudication of the filed claim or site has been completed.  For those claims and sites that were previously reported as ACTIVE and have are now in a FILED case disposition, those cases are either missing the Land Status Check and need further adjudication or in general need further adjudication to be moved forward to an ACTIVE status." The inclusion of the new FILED status in many mining claim case files means that the BLM has taken no action on a mining claim after receiving a notice of location. When the BLM receives a location notice they are supposed to check that the required information is included in the location notice and the claim is located on public lands open to location (not private land or lands closed to mining claims). Once that is done the mining claim case file will be marked as ACTIVE. We have been investigating the implications of this new FILED claim status and it's been rather revealing as to the efficiency and timeliness of each state's BLM claims processing. The differences between different state's priorities in processing new mining claim locations is surprising in several instances. We've run some rough numbers to illustrate these differences between states. What's presented here are the approximate percentage of mining claims case filed per state that have not been processed by the BLM beyond acknowledging the receipt of a notice. 4% - Arizona 53% - California 20% - Colorado 10% - Idaho 1% - Montana and South Dakota* 1% - New Mexico 6% - Nevada 3% - Oregon and Washington* 14% - Utah 9% - Wyoming * These States are administered as a single unit by the BLM. There are significant differences in how each state prioritizes their mining claims case entry work. California stands out due to more than half the mining claims case files never having been adjudicated to ACTIVE status in the case file system. These numbers are not absolute but they are a reasonable indication of mining claim case status work. As Land Matters develops the new MLRS database we should be able to use this new category to present these case action timelines by year and date. We would like to point out that, in our experience, the BLM National Operations Center (BLM NOC) has many talented and devoted people on their staff. Often these problems with public data access can be traced to poorly designed or implemented systems provided by third parties. The BLM NOC has a history of successfully solving these problems as they encounter them. We look forward to continuing our work with the BLM NOC staff to resolve these issues so we can bring our users current and accurate up to date information.    
    • See what I mean about Bob being quite a writer.  Love it.  
    • Here is an interesting stone that is an opal and an agate at the same time   And here is a microscopic image of it
    • I’m also amazed there’s absolutely no heat signatures
    • The pilot “boxed” it and it was electronically tracked...(weapons system thing)...Personally, I think we’re catching glimpses of some radical new technology being deployed on various platforms. There are also reports of underwater objects being tracked at speeds that far exceed anything seen before.... FWIW, “I” think all these “unidentifiable” contacts are the result of DOD SAPs....
