Rock and Mineral 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.

    • May 27   1937      I did not sleep well last night. The Indian Shaman came to me in a dream but it seemed very real. He told me once again that our crew is big medicine. We are brave warriors and held in the highest regard by the ancient people. But he told me that we have been marked to return home and are at this time walking dead men. I was shaking when I got up and stoked the morning fire. Part of it was nerves and part was cold. The crew gathered around for breakfast and I did not mention what I had dreamt.     I poured a good amount of whiskey into my coffee and started to think about the day ahead of me. Ben was anxious to work on the mine. I told him to take it easy and steady the first few days until his body got used to the hard work. We headed up to the dig site and cut back into our drift. This entire channel running east and west had good gold and had tested out well. I believed there were thousands of ounces of gold up here and aimed to get some of it.    Ben was a good worker and he liked to talk while he dug. He told me how thankful he was to be with our crew and helping out in any way he could. He was real excited about finding the treasure and his part of it. I told him that hopefully we could make a deal to sell some or all of it. I wanted to keep some of it as well but every man would need to make his own decision on that.    We worked until dusk and didn’t set any records for buckets but were able to send John 160 of them. It would be interesting to see what we got out of them because my test pans were showing a lot of coarse gold.    At supper we all talked about the next day. We would be going into town to talk with the broker. John and I had come up with a plan to get him out to the mine and show him some examples of what we had and then go from there. We didn’t intend to let him leave knowing we had treasure. He would have to become a temporary partner. Once he was out here he was not going back to town.      TO BE CONTINUED .................
    • I've heard that name before for other activities. If you don't think something is right try to change the law. Otherwise expect consequences if you break them.
