  1. No B/B I meant terrestrilized or aquatic macrophytes. apparently its a new word and process to you also. I ran into it by accident studying fossilization. but thanks. AzNuggetBob
  2. If its not been terrestrilized, <new word. "terrestrilized" (been here on earth to long and with weathering absorbed to many earth minerals to not have much scientific value) AzNuggetBob
  3. Lanny Its hunting season here in Az. I'm heading out on a bit of an off the grid new area. I do have at least three or four more stories about road finds that Id like to post. I learned a lot from them. will post them when I get back. ya need to get down here Lanny. this is the time of year to hunt Az. be back in a couple weeks. AzNuggetBob
  4. Take a look at this fred Without being able to see in different wavelengths we would not be able to see many things that are out there. Our naked eyes are just not capable of it.the last photo is a view about a pin hole size area of space in a sheet of paper looking at a black area of space with Hubble Space Telescope. Amazing isn't it. https://t.co/jGsmlxCy4h AzNuggetBob
  5. Nice story Lanny, just when I thought it was getting long, it just kept getting better. AzNuggetBob
  6. Morlock I'm working on a new theory that black holes are a port hole in our universe or a window to another dimensions that galaxies are either pouring into or even out of depending on what side of the dimensions or denominational thinking your on. they could even be a hole in time, gravity or dark matter. at times I see dimensions as being stacked like a deck of cards looking at it from a horizontal point of view or possibly even a series of spheres, one outside the other. My thinking on it is, if you don't consider the options,the possibility based on our known reality of the univer
  7. That's just one of the upsides. AzNuggetbob
  8. All the best for him Tom, tell him I'm praying for him. the knees are not as important as the heart. AzNuggetBob
  9. And about 80% of the time the gold is not coming from a gouged out vein in a creek but rather its eroding down a hillside. AzNuggetBob
  10. Dan I like your hunting style.I don't have time to wait for them to make it to the creek. I track them to their source. AzNuggetBob
  11. Dan the 2's are much better at smaller gold shallow with a smaller coil. because of the higher frequency and less surface area they are covering at one time. being a VLF they are more sensitive to black sands. so if the coil covers more area they are going to be more erratic in a creek or wash. but if lets say your hillside hunting it may be to your advantage for depth with a larger coil. AzNuggetBob
  12. Morelock I was watching and waiting for that photo. In the article they said said they could see a shadow? and that proved that a black hole was a solid object? I couldn't see any shadow? the photo is very blurry. I understand the physics behind a dense star. but I'm not convinced that a black hole is a solid object yet. AzNuggetBob
  13. I should say the 2's are a little more hyper running at a higher frequency. so I'm not so sure how that's going to work out? AzNuggetBob
  14. Dan I'm not sure about the gold bug 2 because I haven't run a 14" on my 2's but I found more gold with a 14 coil on my gold bug 1 than with any other coil on a VLF. deeper ones too. AzNuggetBob
  15. Lanny when you mentioned that rich bank it reminded me of this.This was about a few months after the that same placer operation shut down in my last story. I had permission to hunt all the claims and I remembered a place down in the lower end of where we were working the creek.we had done pretty well chasing a pay streak along the bank of Weaver creek. We were doing so well there and it was right up against the claim line so the placer plant owner I was working for decided he wasn't going to get into a battle with the adjoining claim owner. apparently they had already had some discussions a
  16. Strapped don't get me wrong. It is a very nice find. If you ever want to part with it, just let me know. but your going to have to cut a window in it first. AzNuggetBob
  17. Lanny One thing I have to say. thanks for inviting me to post here. It brings back a lot of old memories. I learned a lot from them and I'm having a lot of fun sharing them. AzNuggetBob
  18. I remember one time Ron Driscol found one with gold in it. It had a little cork wrapped with a little piece of linen stuffed in it, and a couple of grams of gold in it too.you can probably find a photo of it on the net of it if you look around. I have a photo of it if I can find it. I'll never forget that day. If I remember correctly his was a 45 colt long shell. ever since I've been checking mine. most have the ends bit shut that I find. but when you hear a rattle you got to cut them open.but so far, no luck. just dirt. AzNuggetBob
  19. I agree, I don't remember what I cleaned mine with but it really doesn't matter. that meteorite even if it is a H5-6. from that fall site.It has already been classified, tested and cataloged. AzNuggetBob
  20. Lanny here is another good one. Remember the wash plant where the claim owner's son found that 40 ounces of gold. Well I was just sitting here thinking about it. "Lost Gold" One day I'm standing next to the dump truck. that is the way we were feeding the wash plant. I've got the door open on the truck watching how full the hopper is so as not to overload it.The hopper has rails spaced a few inches apart to sort out the larger rocks from going through the trommel right. I'm nudging the PTO on the dump truck. adding a little more. when your standing there every day watching the plant yo
  21. Strapped classification for the public isn't really their thing. they are really more into studying fresh new falls. and as you can imagine after years of people bringing them boxes of rocks. if you know what I mean. and there is always those few that can't accept no for an answer. You can always take it to some of the rock and gem shows. there is always a lot of knowledgeable people there too. you may able to work something out with them to cut a small window in it for you too. AzNuggetBob
  22. Strapped as I'm sure you know the area is or was covered in 50 cal.machine gun rounds. especially out toward the middle of the playa. It was used for a military aircraft gunnery target range years ago. so a metal detector is pretty much out of the question. that's why we just used magnet sticks.as we drove around we picked up any suspicious stones as well. I ended up with lots of stones on the floorboard of my truck. but when I picked up WP003 I knew that it was different than all the other stones. when I got home I ground and polished a small window on the side of it and got real excite
  23. Doc I thought about a clear epoxy coat, but I think rubber tool handle coat is a better idea. why dont you try both and smack it around and see how it goes. AzNuggetBob
  24. I agree frank using a cutting or cooling agent on more common meteorites can increase the life of your diamond blade by 10 to 20 times verses a dry cut. AzNuggetBob
