    This isn't a decree, order or pardon. It's not even a Presidential action, it's unified executive agency rule making. That's why it's subtitled "A Rule by "the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council". It's part of a much longer term effort by Congress to reduce permitting burdens within the Federal bureaucracy.

    If you want to know more about why a President can't just decree changes read the link in my previous post 5 U.S. Code § 553. Rule making. Congress put hobbles on that mule 75 years ago.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    What else is new?  :4chsmu1:

    It's an ongoing process Luke. Despite TV drama to the contrary making these changes requires publishing the plan and allowing time for public input before making a final decision. Presidents don't just make decrees there is a due process laid out by Congress that has to be followed before executive action can take place.

    Some presidents do make decrees.  Whether or not their desires are ever implemented is another story.

    I realize there's a process to some extent.  I just find it interesting how the 'timing' in these cases played out.

    The "right spot" is the key. I doubt very much if you'll find a "right spot" on a rrpc claim.

    Or for that 'right spot' to continue to pan out as the days roll on.  Someone might get lucky for a couple days here and there, but consistently, good luck.

    Luke, I would think so to some degree. In all three samples there are some similarities but I wouldn't think they would be the same. I suppose it would depend on where these come from and if terrestrial what the soil composition. Someone above my paygrade will have to help us out on that. Knowing what I know of the people involved and what they said, I have no doubt that all of this material is from the same fall. This stuff fell in a muddy field after crops were harvested. Some rocks were lying on top of the ground, stuck in mud somewhat, while other rocks landed in the ditch that had been cleaned out a few months before the event. One thing I have read several times is that Hematite Creations develop on long periods of time through a process that is time consuming. If you could have walked out in this field as I did and looked as I did, you would know without question this material was freshly fallen from the way it lay in and on top of the ground. There were no craters or anything like that but being an old country boy, I know a fresh track when I see it. The land owner also saw this and agreed it had not been in his field. He is a banker and has employees do the actual work in the field but he walks it and tends to it on a regular basis. He did ask the employees and none of them have ever noticed this material in the field. This material just stood out and no other rocks were even seen by me the first few times I collected material. I did find less than dozen gravel rocks scattered.

    With the wide variances in those results, what about the results lends those samples to being meteoric?

    The sample on the left, is 12% iron and 'negligible' amounts of everything else.  Roughly composed of 87% of what?

    The sample on the right, is 10% iron and almost 10% manganese.  No manganese was detected in the other sample.  Very few of the other numbers are close to each other.  I guess I don't understand what makes them so similar.  Other than they were found/left in the same place.

    Those results look 'slaggy' to me.  But I don't know anything about slag, so it's tough to say.

    Funny Luke, according to your past comments, your company or "trade" buys what my company "takes"!! Kind of ironic huh?

    And my top portion of my comment was directed towards the new SOCIALIST type programs we are about to enter into here in the next few weeks. Make you a deal Luke, ill send you a picture of my unemployment check if you send me a picture of yours!!!! 

    Why all the negativity Dan?  You seem so sure you know what you're talking about.  Stop believing all the rhetoric designed to keep you in fear.

    Its ok, we will all be jobless soon!

    Did the demand for mined metals just evaporate?  Why would your job be in jeopardy?

    The one of the most fundamental aspects of business is supply and demand.  If there is demand, someone will supply it.

    I just find it hard to believe that those at the very top (1%) would just close up shop if their profit margins were taxed by a few percent.  All the other extraction industries pay something and they remain in business and profitable.

    Why not take something that I didn't work for?

    Your company takes something that doesn't belong to it.

    My trouble is getting a real weak signal and sometimes it appears repeatable and others it doesn’t, I try different angles and then go back to the direction I was facing at first and it seems like it changes. No hot rocks being moved by accident or anything like that, no EMI sources around, so I’m not sure what’s happening there. It doesn’t happen a lot, so I think it’s not something with the coil or cable.

    I don't swing a 7000, so maybe this won't apply....  When you are having the 'ghost signal' problem, try to turn the gain/sensitivity down slightly and see if that quiets it down any.  When I have this problem with the GPX, a tiny gain tweak is often the solution.  

    As far as hot rocks go....  If it makes a noise, I kick it out of the way.  I don't rely on the machine ground balance to do all the work.  If it's making a noise, the detector is trying to tell you something.  It just takes a few seconds to move the 'noise maker' and see if that's all it was.  Most times it was the 'hot rock', but every now and then, there is another signal underneath the hot rock.  Then things usually get more interesting.  Good Luck.
