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.

    • I'm looking for an almost new Keene 160 drywasher. With or without the bucket vac blower. Any advice on this being a good or bad choice would be appreciated also. I'm new to drywashing and metal detecting. I did some panning as a kid in Georgia and some detecting near prescott Valley a couple weeks ago.  Thanks in advance, Chris.  
    • Next weekend I’ll be participating in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. It is a men’s health fundraiser, raising funds mainly for testicular cancer and mental health research. I know it’s been a tough year+ for all of us, and many of you are not in a position to donate. I’m okay with that sand I get it. If, however, you are wiling and able to sponsor me, you can do so here. https://gfolk.me/PhilBeebe321035
    • Hi Electrician,    I first started panning it, but knew I would not find anything due to nanoparticles, but I just wanted to see if I could see any flour gold, but didnt get anything.  Then I ran 2-  5 gallon buckets of it in a small homemade ballmill mixed in with some mercury. I retorted the mercury and still nada... I have a scanning electron microscope at work, I should have a sample taken to the lab, and see what kind of results come out of that.  I havent read much into it, but if binding nano gold with thiosulfate is capable, and part of the major hurtles financially, I know of a large dirt dump, if you have a profitable way of getting the gold out...
