  2. Hohokam Rock Maze Update, Sunday, I went back out to the Hohokam Rock Maze site, specifically, to follow the weak rock line trail northwest to the larger wash to see if there is anything there and to explore the full site further, to count rocks per major site, tape measure, GPS, and photograph. I followed the rock line to what I had thought would be a weak path with the rock line intermittently alternating sides. However, the rock line became indiscernible with no visible trail between the possible two sides after the initial rock line ended. I still followed it to the wash only to disco

  4. Thanks Bill, We sense and share your excitement and thrill of discovery, for you have truly found the gold. As you have shown, sometimes it can be both the journey and the destination . . .

  5. Just to show you what bedrock looks like in the google images in my area of central AZ. This is a picture of a wash that has a but of exposed bedrock. Not really apparent on the picture where the bedrock is, but the sand isn't white it's pretty gray. This is with a few hundred yards of the source of the feeder wash, so basically by the top of the local hill group. I think the white sands in your other pictures above are because so much water runs through those washed, the good stuff gets buried underneath, and the less valuable, lighter sands gather up top and get bleached by the sun o

  8. Yea you have lots to still learn.. Definitely join a club like Roadrunners. I'd learn the basics of drywashing or dredging first before tackling the hardest type of gold recovery which is metal detecting.You need to make mistakes so you can grow. I have found quite a few nuggets in that general range. Good luck

  9. The last one was found in Pinal County, AZ. Looks like a snake to me eating something. The rest are from a friend whose Dad was a geologist. Have never tried to have them identified, as he used to go around the world.

  10. Nice going you guys. It looks like you had a gonga of a weekend. Enjoyed watching your videos. Just love seeing other people finding gold nuggies. It is mighty nice to see the younger generation getting in to the prospecting game and doing pretty well at it too, I might add. It would have been nice for us old guard guys to have had the fancy metal detectors available to us back in the day. I remember starting out with an old BFO type metal detector. Good for coins but not much else. Congratz

  11. Hey hardtimehermit, Land ownership and possession of items found is always a sensitive issue in this litigious world even on BLM land. I have never found a meteorite in this area. It is unlikely that there is a large meteorite in this immediate area or even a recognizable small one. My immediate interest is in understanding the cultural significance of the various features and dating the site. I have not been able to find on line any other example like it in the United States. This site may be unique. Cheers! billpeters

  12. Hi Billpeters, that's some find you have there. I lived in Arizona for over 20 years and heard some amazing stories about ruins that were found with full pottery still intact along with other remains, but only to be lost and never to be relocated. I wouldn't be surprised if others have found your spot in the past but just could not find it again. So how about meteorites? any chance you are really out there mapping a strewn field ? ht

  13. Welcome back to the fraternity and to the Forum. Lots of informed and knowledgeable members here and the Nuggetshooter archives contain a wealth of information as well.

  14. I am getting back into metal detecting after a few years off. I am interested in meteorites, just about anything metal, and gold (of course). Just purchased a new detector and should receive it over the weekend. I have been watching some YouTube videos and found information about Nugget Shooter Forums and store in Morristown (just up the road from me). Will definitely need to see about catching up with Bill Southern for a chat.

  15. Roadrunner is a goof option. I know of no GPAA claims in your area, so those would be no closer. If you still want to look, I put some info below. Any of that land is OK to cross. State Land you need a permit available online here: https://land.az.gov/natural-resources/recreational-permits As far as bedrock, on goggle map Imagery, you can switch to 3D by holding "CNTL" and that lets you rotate the imagery. On a phone, it may not work, but a computer it will. The bedrock is usually not apparent in the satellite pics in the area I work in the LSD, but off the main wash that has th

  17. Gold Monster OutingWent to the gold camp in the Rocky Mountains last week. The weather was gorgeous, all kinds of songbirds back, plus the flowers of the mountain meadows are in full bloom, purple crocus and shooting stars, yellow buttercups, multi-coloured Johnny Jump-ups, etc., etc.At the camp as I was checking over the living quarters (camper and two travel trailers), a humming bird buzzed straight past my right ear! That snappy racket from those wings going a million miles an hour is unmistakable. So, we set out the humming bird feeders hoping to catch a glimpse of the beautiful and dazzli
