  1. On June 17,2019  Dolan Dave, Eric Rasmussen, Jim Tobin and I hunted Jungo Dry Lake in Northern Nevada.I'm happy to say there were no skunks on this trip. I was fortunate enough to make a 207.8 gram. find. With that said,  is anyone aware of any bigger finds made from Jungo that have not been reported?  The Metbull lists the largest find as 103.6 grams in 2010 by  Scott Johnson, who made the first find on this dry lake,

  2. The Gold Basin 20TH Anniversary Event is days away. I hope all who plan to attend have made preparations for the weather. The 10 day forecast is clear skies in the 60's during the day and in the low 40's at night. Remember to bring all you'll need to survive a dry camp weekend. For those thinking of taking home some memorabilia of the event bring a few coins with you.

    For first timers to Gold Basin There will be white board signs to point the way (if the locals don't remove them). I look forward to meeting you all Friday night at the Base Camp get together if not Saturday.

    Clear skies and good hunting,

    Dolan Dave and Richard

  4. Richard,

    I would like to have one of those caps to go along with my 10th Franconia cap.

    How can I make sure to reserve one for myself and one for my wife?

    Do you want to get a count here so there are 'enough' for those who attend? (I'd hate to be there and not get one, if you know what I mean.)

    Make sure you're out there Friday of the event. I'll put 2 aside for you. You may want to add the Lapel pins too. They came out great!

  5. Last weekend made a trip to some off beaten paths to never hunted areas in Northern Nevada, and the Tonopah area with Richard Garcia, and Roy Miller. We ended up with some excellent finds. Ran into Joe no Shoulders...

    The little guy headed for the bush as soon as Roy the snake charmer showed up. :25r30wi:

  7. Richard;

    No offense intended; that is my lazy thinking and lack of clarity. By easier I really meant more efficient for covering the maximum ground for maximum recovery. I won't pretend that i have expertise in the field of drylake hunting just a idea that lake hunters might be missing some goodies by not swinging a detector as they wander along...maybe we will meet up some time and give it a go!

    best wishes

    I would like that. Perhaps in November.

    Clear skies and good hunting,

    Richard

  8. KGMRG;

    I see the statement that detectors don't work written by a variety of meteorite hunters, I don't get it...

    Heavy minerization is what gold detectors thrive on...coin detectors would suffer but not a goldbug or whites or some Pi machines. Just because covering ground by sight hunting is easier or more efficient does not nullify the use of a good detector...

    I have stopped at a couple of dry lakes and played with my detector, it ran fine and would have found any chrondrite in my opinion...and would certainly find an iron or stoney-iron.

    Dear FRED

    I own a Gold-Bug 2 and a White's GMT. I have enjoyed using both of them while I was hunting with some of the best in the field. I truly appreciate Bill Southern's forum though I have never had the pleasure of meeting him. I can trace my first find, at Franconia, to the help and friendship of Stan Santiago who I met on the Nugget Shooter forum in 2007. If we compare posts on this forum, your experience is obvious and vastly exceeds mine. I do, however, have some concerns about your statement that "sight hunting is easier" and I have been told by many " You're not worth your salt if you can't hunt by sight"

    Happy Fourth of July FRED

  9. Hello eveyone, i am fairly new to the field, just found my first meteorite couple of years ago at Holbrook and really look forward to this hunt. It will be my first group hunt and i am excited to meet some folks who know meteorites!

    We look forward to meeting you this November. Hopefully you'll leave with a Gold Basin meteorite if not a few new friends.

  10. Dolan Dave and I followed the blow outs to make a number of nice finds.

    I recovered 67 meteorite fragments, with a total weight of 346 grams.

    My two largest finds, seen in SITU, were a partially buried 50g fragment and

    a 37.7g resting atop the ground.

    We had a great time and meteorite hunt despite the heat and insect bites. :thumbsupanim

  11. Hi,

    I'm from Germany and coming to the Southwest US next week, basically for photography.

    But I would really find one meteorite myself one day, even it is a small and common one.

    I think the Southwest is one of the best places where I maybe could find one and I would like to spend 2-3 days for meteroite hunting.

    I researched a lot and I think dry lakes are a good place to go. My only concern is that they might have been oversearched already.

    I also know the area where the meteorite men found hundreds of small meteorites - I would be satisfied with one.

    Do you think it still makes sense to go there? I know the location but it is 5 years ago.

    How is the chance to find one - especially there?

    I have perfect eyesight, magnet and I am willing to spend two full days in the heat.

    Anyone been there recently?

    Other hints?

    Regards, Tom

    Tom
