  1. Ok this topic should of never been allowed because this is the Prospector's Lounge, this topic has nothing to do with prospecting...but we have allowed other "off topic" topics to be posted in this section just to give everyone something to comment on.....not to fight about, not for name calling, not for getting political, etc., etc. But as always most can't get along together, many here have to hit below the belt to get a reaction from their "adversary", but the time has come to move along to other discussions, hopefully most has developed "herd immunity" for their animosities and bicker

  4. I always wondered why guys that believe the virus was deliberate are also the ones who won't do anything to protect themselves from it. Seems like if I really believed the virus was an intentional attack on our country then I would be doing my darndest to fight it. Some folks just don't have the stomach for a fight though. Lots of people will stay in bed frozen with fear while an intruder steals their stuff. So it is predictable that some would refuse to fight a scary virus. Some folks are afraid of slimy monsters. Some are afraid of hairy monsters. Others are afraid of viruse

  11. Now put that definition in context of his answer to the question and let me know what you think. I wouldn't waste my time defending him. Anyone that would phrase an answer like that deserves to be called out. Just my opinion Electrician. It's not a poke at you at all. --------- This is obviously not a fossilized hand. It is an artifact. It is an artistic rendition of a hand. It is even decorated. It isn't a fossil. It is an artifact. And the guy that is trying to tell us it is a fossil is posting creepy schist in his third post. If it looks like a duck and q

  14. I don't think it's a fossil. It looks more like part of an old statue that was buried, covered and over time and some type of mineralization growth occured on the tips. There's another possiblity but depends on where it was found. If that's where it came from, the correct term to use would be petrification, not fossilization. Where did it come from?

  16. Tough to tell from the photo, but the ground-window picts, around the edge of the grind where I would expect to see a thin layer of fusion crust I do not see anything resembling; it appears to be more of an oxidation coating than a fusion crust. Also tough to tell from the photo is if the interior is metal, or is it a semi-metallic luster like you'd get from filing hematite/magnetite? Regmaglypt size is a function of the size of the body upon which they form. I would expect reg's on a rock of this size to be respectively larger, and not as uniform in size/spacing. Also, if you look

  17. Electrician, I’ve found it very hard to get any reviews of a specific area unless the club you belong to has a website that allows members to post reviews to. The GPAA allows member reviews for the claims. I’ve found water very spotty in Arizona. When the GPAA had claims along the river in Black Canyon city, I only saw the water running once in the dozen times I went out there. The other times there was water, but in puddles every mile or so, and sometimes not on the claims. Even Lynx creek is spotty, although you can usually dig deep enough and the bottom of the hole will fill up

  18. Is this one a fulgurite? Here are two tektites and two concretions with kind-of-similar shapes. Maybe some concretions are fossils of tektites?

  19. Thanks Clay. I did not look at the link you put in earlier. I knew there had to be a better map than the forest service had posted. That Master Title Plat has good detail. Maybe 10 years ago, I created my own map based off the rather crude map from link I posted. That was all I could find at the time. It was quite the exercise. I used USGS maps to plot the boundaries. Of course the map I was putting together covered the intersection of four of those maps. At least all the datum on the maps were the same. Once I actually got to Lynx creek, The area I decided to go to was well withi

  21. If you look at the official map for lynx creek, there are some areas along the creek that are not part of the withdrawal area for whatever reason. Prescott National Forest - Recreation (usda.gov) Without having been to any of Clay's sites he mentioned, these two yellow areas look like either private property or patented claims. I checked Lynx creek for open areas years ago, and found nothing. I checked for miles to the South. There was some open ground perhaps a mile to the West on some pretty steep hills. Who knows what is open there now. There is an AMRA claim that borders

  24. Fact is I didn't say the Covid vaccine, did I. But thank you for your expected low brow response. Your bullying, name calling, and constant need to get the last word in has ruined this forum. I knew when you were allowed back on here that it would go to hell and it has. You've run off many members with this crap and inability to have a real discussion. You actually have posted zero "facts", anybody that just believes what you have to say is foolish.

  27. It is quartz on chalcedony. What the tan mineral is on it im not sure. I'm going to call the tan mineral barite. If I am wrong folks will come out of the woodwork to correct me. I am probably wrong. The crystals don't look right for barite. It does look like a soluble mineral that precipitated on the quartz after the formation of the silica. Whatever it is it is a neat specimen.

  29. How about studying the science? It's disappointing to see this discussion continue to revolve around politics. I doubt political preferences could be demonstrated to have any relationship with virus origination and transmission. The earliest known evidence of SARS-COV2 was found in samples from March 12, 2019 in Barcelona Spain. The earliest known evidence in China was November 17, 2019 just about the same time as the earliest known evidence in Italy. I'm sure those dates will be refined over time, research is ongoing, but this is what scientific investigation has revealed at this point.

  31. Did you get the J&J vaccine? I just got back from getting my second shot of Moderna and I feel fine. Time will tell, but the odds are in my favor. I posted the article above to point out that there are real instances of reinfection even after vaccination. The vaccines are only 90-95% effective, so roughly 5% could be at risk. 90% is far better than zero. It's not all about prevention of infection. Studies have also shown the vaccine greatly reduces the severity of symptoms which almost eliminates hospitalizations.

  32. It has nothing to do with being 'woke'. Whatever that's supposed to mean.... ??? It has everything to do with your continued use of a term employed to cause more division and is blatantly false. Covid-19 is a corona virus, not influenza. You should know that. The rest of it is a derogatory term and I take personal offense. My wife and kids fall into that group and half of the people I consider family as well. If you were bold enough to utter that garbage in my presence, I would be standing in your face. Do we understand each other now? Luke

  39. Irons are often very sculpted. If it is iron it is definitely a suspect meteorite. If it is mineral it is not. It will take a file and five seconds to determine whether this specimen is mineral or iron.

  40. Interesting article. Meteorites decay and terrestrialize and I suppose a tektite might do the same. It sounds reasonable that they could form the core of an concretion. Many things do. I have found a lot of concretions with some mighty peculiar shapes. Some that seem pretty impossible. Many that look like an art project. I have always wondered what bizarre force of nature shaped and colored them like that. I'm a bit skeptical that anything I have seen is a petrified tektite. But I have plenty of concretions that resemble petrified alien artifacts, some petrified snowmen and a f

  41. That's not the "official" map Chris. The Master Title Plat I linked before is the only "official" map of land status. That's why each MTP has printed on it "This plat is the Bureau's Record of Title". Here's what the Forest Service has to say about the map you linked to: "This information is not accurate for legal boundary or for navigational purposes; it may not meet National Map Accuracy Standards. It is intended for use by the USDA Forest Service for natural resource planning and management. The Forest Service assumes no responsibility for the interpretation or application of this data

  42. Hi there, Looks like a terrestrial rock to me as well, but I’m no expert and don’t claim to be one. I look at the color, and the “angles”. They form somewhat 90° points that something that big, looking as it does, would have alblated a lot more IMO. And the color looks off too, I like to say ‘poop’ brown. That’s almost black and consistent with basalt. Just my opinion, and as I always say, “Opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has one.” Jayray

  44. Stopping Chinese nationals from entering our country while thousands of infected Americans came home from Asia without tests or quarantine. Yeah, that was really effective leadership. Oh, forgot to mention, the European strain which largely infected the east coast and spread throughout the country. Warp speed.... Come on now. With or without the help of the govt, those vaccine manufactures would have done largely the same thing with the same results. They are in business and compete against each other. No doubt the funding was helpful, but they would have done it anyways.

  48. I heard a report on the radio from a scientist that studies transmission. He said there is good evidence that most people do not transmit the virus. Only certain individuals. He points to the fact that many households will have one person infected but no one else in the household gets it. It is very common for this to happen. While other people infect everyone they get close to. They said most people do not transmit the virus to anyone. But people who do transmit it will infect am average of 28 people. He indicated that "super spreaders" were not so much events but individuals.

  49. Nothing has changed there Electrician. That land (nearly 10,000 acres) was patented to the State in 1981 as an indemnity selection. The patent was based on land that was granted to the State of Arizona in 1914 but the State didn't select the land until 1981. You can see the patent HERE. Next time you think the sky is falling or someone is stealing land check out the Arizona Land Status map. I got all the details and links to that patent in a matter of seconds using the map.
