Gold Prospecting 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.

    • This has become so much more than an opinion about a rock hasn't it? I honestly don't think it was ever about exploding Martian sandstone. Just the fact that it is supposed to be about exploding Martian sandstone indicates that there is some deeper motivation. I think we need a special forum for psycho-geological and neuroterrestrial specimens. Maybe offer diagnosis with the mineral identification? There must be some way we can help these troubled souls. This guy is desperate, living in the streets. Just him and his sandstone, his camera and his computer. In a cardboard box behind the bowling alley. Trying desperately to make someone believe his sandstone is from Mars. It is his only hope. His last resort. He has bet it all on the rock and now all he needs is just one guy on Nugget Shooter Forum to say they believe him. Just one real meteorite hunter to endorse his observations and methodology. Just one man who will admit it could be possible.  Well Odin I want you to know I hear you brother. I realize how hard it is and how desperate you are to have someone on your side. You are obviously in need of professional help. Not for the rock. It is a hunk of sandstone. But for your mental health. If what you tell us about your situation is true then you need to seek help. For your own good. Obsessing on this rock is not healthy. You are an emotional wreck man! Talk to a mental health professional. Life is too short to be unhappy and you are obviously unhappy. Don't bum us out here with your sob stories. We aren't your therapist or your momma. You came here for advice and got solid advice about your rock and your head.        
    • Hello, I want to say You have a Lovely Turtle fossil with what probably is not paint but mineral like someone suggested. I have just realized this early morning the copper ore "rock" (I found  35 years ago) and it is a turtle foot fossil. it is pretty with blues and greens. I found it in a barrel of like copper ore rocks, on top of a mountain over looking the Kotsina River. Darn it, the exBF, still in Alaska has the bulk of them. I realized what it was as I was studying my turtle fossils I find here and noticed the same claw shapes in the tiny "rocks" fossils. They look like boring rocks unless you look closer. the brown rock is also a turtle foot fossil. LOL found it at the grocery store here in the decorative rock bed. Its loaded with roundish pretty smooth egg fossils but there are all kinds of fossils here naturally in the low country of coastal GA. LOL the only rocks here are fossils. I have a lot more cute fossilised baby turtle feet. oh boy variety galore lol
