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.

    • Thanks Bill, glad to know that.  
    • I've been detecting since I got out of the Army in 1976. I know a little bit about detecting gold in Arizona, and I know enough about Bill Southern, to listen when he speaks. If Bill says the new 6000 is his go to machine for nuggets, then 'nuff said.
    • Ok there are a lot of wierd comments in this big ol write up! If you are running discrimination while you are hunting nuggets, i want to follow you with my " Cutting edge, overpriced" GPX5000 or my even my GoldBug2. Like most great detector prospectors on here, i have found nuggets that one detector will find and the other will not! And vise versa! Everyone here knows thats why, if you can afford it, then you own at least 2 different styles of detector, a PI and a VLF.  And to be honest with you, if my detector wasn't picking up the tiniest of fly dookie sized metal, i would be worried!! All detectors pick up METAL TRASH. There is no getting around it! For one it keeps me from getting bored and for two, you know if you are banging the tiny metal trash, you know there is still a nugget there in that patch. Its been proven.  As far as the benches in California being "too deep", i have friends over there that are banging nuggets on the benches every weekend with all sorts of different machines. Anything from the old GP Extreme all the way up to the 7000. And everything in between!!! And for the sake of saving the question being asked on the detectors i have, i run a GoldBug2, GPX5000 and a Equinox. Every detector i have has a purpose on different gold!
    • Yes. A "red" streak is any hue of red from light pink to dark chocolate. A "grey" streak is from light grey to coal black. "Purple" is a hue of red.  Remember that rocks are combinations of minerals. They will give you the streak color of any minerals that touch the streak plate. So a single mineral will yield a true color. A rock may reveal a combination of colors depending on the minerals it is comprised of. No matter what color you perceive the streak to be, if it leaves a streak it is not a meteorite. If it is magnetic and leaves a streak It is an oxidized terrestrial iron.
    • It looks reddish in the streak test pic. I was going by your assertion that it looks purple, as cameras don't always render true color well.
