  1. Ya, me too, my only interest is modern zinc pennies cause their worth the most, I got piles of em, I'm rich!!!!!
  2. Hey BB, I just figured out you or someone else deleted yer membership here, but I would very much like to continue the conversation I started with you in the private messenger. Please feel free to write to me through my personal email address that can be found on my profile, it's available publicly, I don't really care who has it. h5nife@hotmail.com your friend, Frank
  3. Jeez BD, that gold is soooo coarse an jagged, Id prolly continue to work that spot in the same manner. You gotta be sittin right on top of the source!
  4. Outstanding conversation so far with multiple valid points in opinion, an a huge welcome back to you Rick Grimes, I mean BB. You have surely been missed! But I think maybe there is a growing crucial element not being included in yer equations concerning golds values. Thirty years ago science an technology had just begun to more detailedly look at their understanding of the astounding properties of Au. Heat distribution an electrical conductivity measurements in recent years are literally blowing the minds of scientists an the more that was learned, gave rise to, for example, cell phone technology which has gone 10 times above "captain kirk's" communicator gadget, that at the time was concidered absolute absurd science fiction.(did the flip phone even last more than 3 years?). The "industrial age" I don't think lasted more than 60 years (1890-1950) From there we went right into the space age. The Hubble, Keplar, an James Webb telescopes would NOT exist if Au was not relatively available in abundance. (it is only concidered rare when compared with more abundant minerals ie;silica, gypsum, iron etc.) An no matter how many economies crash over time, as long as there humans on this planet that keep a need an desire to maintain education in technological knowhow as well as exploration beyond our planets atmospere gold will always retain a higher sustainable value than any coinage, paper money or beans, string or corn kernels or whatever humans use to trade with to get different things we need to live an even prosper. My point bein the fact that the conversation up till now, left out, the crucial element of gold havin a re-newed stable an slowly growing value over times to come. I think we are, as a species, very, VERY lucky to have available in abundance the somewhat rare element of Au, an at the same time begun to understand it's almost "magical" astonishing properties. Yep! I think we are real lucky.
  5. Hi Jack, first off, I re-read my post an I can't see anywhere that I'd mentioned or insinuated that any elected or "voted for" politician be removed by the use of gun violence or by any other means fer that matter. An I will apologize fer sayin that removing a few commodity brokers by any means including a well placed projectile, that won't fix the problem either. Your valued "elected officials" have worked really hard over the last couple hundred years to create boatloads of laws, laws filled with loopholes, to protect the ethically bankrupt self employed business entrepreneurs known as "commodity brokers". Mined an growed commodity values should slowly an steadily rise over time as demand rises above supply. Electronic technology in the last 30 yrs. has tripled global economic demand over existing new supplies. An yet their values drop an are kept low in order to keep wallstreet business people an elected official's incomes above everyone else's. These kina people existed more than 2000 yrs. ago, along with the needed laws to protect them. We need to find a way to make the business itself to be illegal an not allow it to exist altogether. I remember readin a book a while back an in it was story 'bout a feller name a "JC" where he saw that laws allowed but knew it was flat out wrong to do what they do. So took it upon himself to remove these brokers or "money changers" from the temple. Now, I ain't so much a religious person an I fer sure ain't countin some great messiah to come save the day. An I learned early on, the definition of "help from above" was a sniper on the roof. I's was also taught if there's a problem? do something cause doin nothin don't help, doin nothing might even make it worse. Boss used to say "don't wanna see you standin there an doin nothing, keep busy, even if it's wrong, just don't be doin nothing". An all that just kina makes sense, to me anyway. Frank in Mi. (in case the NSA is readin)
  6. Force china an Russia to abide by EPA regs. an at the same time put the US $ back on the gold standard an you'd see the spot value climb to 3k+ an stay there. (Prolly need to do away with a couple of the larger corrupt commodity brokers as well). No need for lengthy court BS, just 2-3 strategically placed rifle cartridges ought to fix that. Don't git me started sooo early in the morning when my mind is clear. RH
  7. It WAS still in circulation, I'm guessin you put a stop to all that there AD.
  8. Look like a little better than 2 gm. maybe 3??? nice!!!
  9. Happy birthday to ya Grubstake, Lookin at yer w. forecast, unless you have other plans, might be a good day to go findin a birthday nugget. http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=37.5039&lon=-119.9772#.VrdB3cv2a70 Frank
  10. Oh an when/if you go there, at the bottom of the page there'll be tab that says "need help getting started?" Just click that line an go from there, ok, again ifn this helps. Frank
  11. Don't know ifn this'll help but MIT offers a few free non-credited on-line geology courses, w/no registration/work at yer own pace kinna atmosphere. This is one of the best inexpensive self education tools I've taken advantage of in the past an currently. Ifn this helps. http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/earth-atmospheric-and-planetary-sciences/12-114-field-geology-i-fall-2005/index.htm Frank
  12. Happy B-Day to you there AD, I really enjoi yer Alaska photos when you post them. Frank
  13. Knowing yer in Penn. Prolly a clay stained limestone (sedimentary) w/calcite, water-worn=river cobble.
  14. Now I just don't know that I have any interest in falling victim or bein a participant in a situation where a "miner" decided he needs to start mining other miners, don't know? Maybe it's just me? Hey Adam you thinkin to run fer office somewhere?
  15. Welcome aboard there Matt, I immediately noticed that you and I live, fer the most part, in the same neck of the woods. Ifn yer ever interested in findin a little Au here in Mi.? I might be able to help you with that. Got me a place just W. of Lansing where one can dig a little up. Frank
  16. WTG Rick, round here, just waitin fer my favorite cove to freeze so I can set a shack an git me some more perch an maybe a pike. Ifn I do good I might put a photo or 2.
  17. Your photo #1, 'round these parts, known as the classic "petosky stone", found in abundance in northern Mi. but usually worn smooth by water like a river cobble.
  18. Ok, just picked a few more 20 mins. ago. Every 2-3 days we pick anything that's ready. Ifn anybody round here wants a few ghost peppers, Id be happy to send you a few, theys startin to pile up an I ain't sure what to do with so many except to feed em to unsuspecting alcoholics.
  19. We have some sort of garden every year. Every spring we stop in at a local green house, we'll spend bout 10 bucks there an that gets us bout a dozen or so different pepper plants an a couple seed packets. Green beans an carrots are growed from seed. This year we got those an we have an union an potato patch then sweet red bell peppers, yellow sweets, jalapeno's, an for the first time some chile's an a ghost pepper plant. Here's a small pile of stuff got picked Tuesday 22nd.
  20. I don't think I've ever come to this site or any other to ask "What is this?" I have always kinna done my own research. I have been registered with geology.com fer a long time. And of course in addition to tons of rock, mineral, an geology info, they have a store you can buy geo. related stuff. Some things are kinna pricey but some things are actually worth the money they want, (I like the waterproof printer paper). And I have gotten a couple different books from these guys. So here's the link for em. Most of you older, more experienced fellers use this site a little already. http://geology.com/store/roadside-geology-arizona.shtml Oh, an to change the subject a little, this other thing showed up in my E-mail the other day was, for me, kinna good readin. http://archive.unews.utah.edu/news_releases/scientists-see-deeper-yellowstone-magma/ RH
  21. My Friday night has lasted right up till now, an I'd like to end it with this. A couple fellers here might like this I's thinkin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4Ao-iNPPUc
  22. xactly how this may benefit most small scale prospectors, but seemed like an interesting read. Opinions please. http://www.mining.com/web/new-highly-sensitive-method-for-detecting-gold-at-drill-sites/
  23. Very cool, and I think it's kinna funny when jokes and laughs are made when it's mentioned that I like to treasure hunt mostly by the paint crew I work with.
  24. It was right there in black & white "I would be left to my own devises after 5:PM" Whats a little night detecting gonna hurt?
