Hats off to the Guys in Grimsby Canada!


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just want to congratulate the entire crew of American meteorite hunters that went to Canada and found meteorites from this latest fall. My good friend and nuggetshooter member Rob (Nakhla Dog Meteorites) Wesel just reported (on the met-list) that he found his first stone today! Of course I knew just seconds after he found it this morning as he called me immediatly after and told me!

Mike Farmer found a nice stone a few days ago and Mike (I look just like Ruben on facebook)Bandli will hopefully find a stone tomorrow. These guys have done what the rest of us wish we had done!

Thanks for a job well done guys!

I hope when Rob gets back he will give us in depth details and photos but until then here is a link to the video of this awesome fall.

From what I'm reading on the Meteorite List it sounds like it's some tough hunting up there. It's hard to say how much time is needed to find the main part of the the strewnfield.

Congrats to you Rob! I'll bet you breathed a huge sigh of relief when after nailing your first one, I'm sure that single stone made the trip worth it. If you had more time to invest I'm sure you would get over more stones, at least your not coming home empty handed.

Hey, satisfy my curiosity here... I have always understood that Canadian meteorites cannot leave the country. The finders ALWAYS come back empty handed. Is this true?

Hey Bob,

Good question. The answer depends on what you mean by "empty handed". Yes they do return - initially- without a meteorite but it is completely legal to sell your finds to Canadian collectors - which is what many people do. Also it is NOT impossible to get export permits in order to legally sell anywhere. So it isn't like you find a meteorite and then give it to a museum.
