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.

    • here is the most recent post by usgs on the area https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/coso_volcanic_field/status.html So there is a difference between a caldera and a volcanic field. The Ridgecrest / China Lake area is a volcanic field The area near Mammoth Lakes is a caldera. (the Long Valley Caldera you were speaking of Bob)
    • Hi Bob, This is from the article I linked below.  “The California Volcano Observatory will continue to monitor the situation for any sign of volcanic activity and provide updates as warranted.” The Coso Volcanic Field is on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains at the northern end of the Mojave Desert, about 40 miles north of Ridgecrest. The field covers roughly 150 square miles, mainly within the Naval Air Weapons Station at China Lake. https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1151965/california-volcano-eruption-california-earthquake-coso-volcanic-field-latest-news-update There are other articles although some are more sensationalistic than others. But from the amount of lava on the surface between Mojave and Bishop, it certainly seems as though this has been an area of huge volcanic activity. Have you seen it?  I will try to find more. Best...

    • Thanks for the reply but there's no reviews.
    • Are you guys talking about the caldera up by Mammoth? Isn't that one called "Long Valley"? I am not aware of any USGS reports on a caldera under China Lake. Only some theories posted on the internet by Russian trolls. Any talk about a caldera under China Lake is just wild conjecture at this point.  
    • Are you thinking  of the LongValley caldera up by Mammoth?  I am not aware of any official USGS reports on a supercaldera under China Lake other than what you will find using the suggested search terms. And that is just rumor and speculation at this point.      Tthere is the much studied CosoVolcanic field, but to my knowledge it has not been labeled as a caldera, though it,'s certainly active and has much potential and already exploited geothermal activity.
