    Lost Gold on Travel Channel

    I’ve ran into their dad Ron on occasion in southern AZ and Colorado. He is a pretty good source on history of the superstitions mountains. Would be cool if they did a show on Skeleton Canyon. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skeleton_Canyon lots of stories of stolen silver and gold are told by the locals in that part of the state. But I do have to agree most of the southwestern treasure stories are based on a small thread of truth and the rest is usually made up to sound cool.

    Primitive Smelting

    I’ve seen a torch taken chacocite and when burned it created visible copper. Seen this at a mine down near Bisbee. I’m not sure how that worked but every piece brought out from underground did that. I agree old school smelting is a lost art on the inter webs. Be careful if your rocks have high zinc content.

    Locating meteorites

    Welcome to the forum. I’ve spent time in Corpus and West Texas and all I can suggest is get to know some ranchers. Texas is practically all private land. I’ve always thought searching some ranches surrounding Odessa would be cool.
