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.

    • To clarify, when I say "pyrite" im not necessarily speaking about "iron pyrite". There are dozens of pyrite minerals that look a lot like gold in a photo. Many may not stick to a magnet because they do not contain enough iron to be magnetic. Or they are plated so thin there is not enough mass to notice the pull. So if it is magnetic it is (probably) not gold. But if it is not magnetic you are right back to square one. Many "pyrites" are non magnetic. Gold is not magnetic. But it is often found in rocks that are. So a magnet is not a very reliable test to determine if what you are seeing is gold in a rock. It can only tell you the presence of iron. And only then if the iron is concentrated enough.  
    • "Iron pyrite will stick to a magnet because of its high iron content; gold will not. You can also use a drop of nitric acid to test your specimen ... Nitric acid will turn iron pyrite black, but gold will remain the same color.  Fool's gold is made up of crystals and has sharp edges, while real gold is a metal with a smoother texture and edges that are more rounded. If you look closely at a piece of Pyrite and see that its structure consists of what looks like small and sharp cubes, then it is fool's gold"        
    • We didn't find any other stashes. I think I have looked everywhere a few bills might be hidden.  There is no doubt my stepfather liked to make little stashes of money. But that one was not little. It had to have been there for years. I bet he knew exactly where it was until he got to the point he didnt know where anything was.  Bless his heart. He provided us with yet another adventure even after he passed.
