    It is really difficult to tell based on the photos,which some are out of focus. How do they react to an earth magnet? Filing a window would also help with the ID.

    You can obtain more information on meteorites, by going to the " Meteorite Research, Resources, ID,etc" posted at the top of the forum. I hope this helps,

    Those of us that know Mike understand he had no malice. I have been there before and sh** happens.

    Mike is one of the good guys,who has the credentials to back it. I'm not trying to speak for Mike,just adding

    my 2cents.There are some great people on this forum, I hope you stick around and get to know them.

  3. Howdy All... Gosh finding meteorites at what could be called Yelland Playa, or Dry Lake, actually is a "wet"

    lake... Wow, usually it is a smelly mud flat... Gosh I'm an ol' Ely Nevada boy; born there, graduated from

    White Pine County High School there in 1948... The Yellands were a well known pioneer family and the

    airport is named Yelland Field as is Yelland Dry Lake.

    If anyone has a copy of the September 2010 revision of ADVANCED Prospecting & Detecting For

    Hardrock Gold it has Appendix A 'More on Meteorites." Please check out 13A. "Dry Lakes and Meteorites"

    on pgs 104-105.

    Please... if'n anyone knows where I can get a small meteorite from Yelland Dry Lake, please let me

    know about it... I really would like a small one and most willing to buy it... tailgate Jim Straight


    I'm pretty sure you wouldn't remember me,but we met back in the early nineties sometime after your book "Magnificent Quest" came out. You were kind enough to give me some advise on meteorite hunting and finding the right metal detector. I would be more than happy to pass on that favor by giving you one of my Yelland dry lake finds for your collection. You can get a hold of me on the message board.Glad to see you're still hanging out.

  4. Spent a couple days at the basin this week an fished these 2 from a sloping hillside within about 14 inches of each other, yes they will fit together.

    It must have weathered apart over the eons.

    A 50 plus and 80 plus grammer still have some nice black fusion crust showing.

    The 1/2 gram nugget just "got in the way" while I was detecting :ROFL:

    The stuff is still out there. Ya just gotta know where to LOOK :old:


    Great finds. I can't wait to get back out there when it cools down.

  5. Ok things have changed for the better. As most of you know I have been in the process of naming a dry lake in nevada where I recovered my Area 51 stone it had looked like a bust after two years of wrangling with the nevada board on state names. It was approved on the last meeting then just after the meeting the duckwater tribe of Indians stated they did not approve of the name which sent the name into limbo again. Well today I got an Email from the board and I think I got the name. Still have to wait for the meeting on sep 10th for the word. Here is what I got.

    Hello Bryan,

    I can't believe it. The stars were aligned today. Please disregard my last e-mail. I received a letter from the Duckwater Tribe today. They could not decide on a different name and decided that Last Stand Lake was acceptable. Hurray!!!! I will scan this letter soon and copy it to you.

    Exec. Sec.

    Nevada State Board on Geographic Names

    Right now all I can say is Yahoo !!!!!!!!


    Congrats Bryan

    It seems hard work and persistence pays off. :party-smiley-027[1]:

    Rob got a really nice Glorieta and all I got was a :yikes: scare from a Mountain lion about a 100 yards from my location. Luckily the wind was blowing towards me or maybe he just wasn't hungry for mexican food. Last year Rob was visited by a large Bear,so this year we brought along bear spray... Next time maybe I'll get lucky. :arrowheadsmiley:

    Clear skies/Good hunting


  7. Nice find !! Man , I need to try meteorite hunting some day :thumbsupanim

    What`s inside the fenced area?



    I'm not sure why the area was fenced in ,but there appears to be metal stakes setup in the center of the compound.


  8. Rob Reisener and Sonny Clary invited me to hunt the Glorieta, NM strewn field. Minutes into the hunt Rob found a 70.1g Glorieta buried about a foot. What a great start, but after 3 hard days of hunting nothing else was found. Our hunting area was limited as the BLM forest area was closed due to the start of the fire season. This was my second trip to Glorieta and hopefully the third time will be the charm.


  9. Roach Dry Lake hunt.
    On my way home from Glorieta,NM I decided to hunt Roach Dry Lake,NV.
    I was rewarded with a 2.5g meteorite. Unfortunately it appears the strewn field is about to be closed. The area has been graded and cleared of the debris that had once marked the strewn field,with the exception of a single tire that had been used as one of the m
    arkers and a small patch of desert brush.


  10. After almost two years of hunting Franconia and Gold Basin numerous times with no finds at all, yesterday I found a beautiful 17.1 grammer at Franconia. I'd about given up, but my good friend Troy Ball encouraged me to go back to Franconia with him. He's been very successful there, and took us to a place he thought we might have some luck. He was very helpful and patient with me, checked out my detector (which was ok), and gave me specific tips to improve my hunting technique. Sure enough, using his tips I found my piece in about an hour or so. I'll always be grateful to Troy, a good guy.

    I'd send pictures, but they're in my ipad and I can't figure out how include them here. I can email them tho, and have sent them to those whose addresses I have.


    Way to go Karl! Glad to see you finally made your find at Franconia. :thumbsupanim

  11. It was a great day to hunt Gold Basin with friends ( Dolan) Dave Libuszowski, Roy Miller, and long time mentor Stan Santiago.

    A few small Gold Basin meteorites were found, but best of all my first gold nugget. Thanks Dave!


    Frank C. What do you think, will I get hooked?
