  1. Oh my Goodness! What a great story you have here. Someone should take this and pay you to put it in their magazine. Great job. Mitchel
  2. I followed some claim filings in northern Nevada. Lode claims had been filed on the land on a certain date. Several were filed adjacent to each other with adjoining borders. These load claims were sold and the claim filed by the new owners was a placer claim but it used the date of the load claim as the date of discovery. Is that a valid transfer? I know of another instance of a claim in southern California where 'partners' were in dispute over an unclaimed parcel and one filed a placer claim and the other filed a lode claim. They were told by attorneys that if they went to court the
  3. I attended several lectures at UCLA and John was always there. Here is an article about his life. https://newsroom.ucla.edu/stories/in-memoriam-john-wasson-cosmochemist-and-co-creator-the-ucla-meteorite-collection
  4. A 'hot rock' is quite different than HOT QUARTZ!
  5. Walt, what are you doing sleeping? You should have been up all night looking for more! Good nuggie.
  6. Well folks, I would edit the post but I can't. It is fake! I went to my local gold store to make sure it was gold and 18k and they told me it was a fake. It is nickel and copper and not real. All that glitters is not gold. I'll go to the store before I post something like this next time. Mitchel
  7. Last night I was using the V 3.0 update and the 800/15 on the beach. I came across an ordinary signal but got an extraordinary result. What I saw in my scoop was a balled up 24" chain that is labeled 18k. It is 32.57 grams.
  8. I have updated my Equinox 800 a couple of weeks ago. (This unit is a replacement of the original I bought from Bill. It was replaced because of a bad switch.) I think it is more stable in the sound in Multi than before on the beach. Has anyone used the 3.0 to find nuggets? Do you notice any difference? I think there is the potential that nuggets could bang out a little harder. My targets in Beach 1 are more clear. They sound like Park 1 targets did in the dry sand. I'm anxious to go nugget hunting with this update. Mitchel
  9. Your 'story' is now in the ICMJ issue written by Ray Mills!
  10. What 'characteristics' of a meteorite were you referring to? What makes you think of meteorite when you see this rock?
  11. You'll see your trends as never before! Plot your nugget finds on a map and then go above the area with the drone. Mitchel
  12. I got a fireworks display in my scoop on July 5th when I found a 6g diamond cluster ring and a few other things.
  13. And now you will be returned to your regularly scheduled lunar program.
  14. Tom, I use the mini-maglite AAA because I can clip it to my cap and go hands free on the beach. I use rechargables and I have two of them and stay out on the beach for 8 hours!
