Ancient Strewnfield Gives Up 2 More


Recommended Posts

I know where theres one at least twice as big as a softball, I left it one day cause I could'nt carry it and wasn't quite sure it was a meteorite. Its not like any others I've seen I have to go back there and re find it to be sure.................. to be continued :WOW:

I found one like that about the same size too, been back twice because I keep thinking "hmm, well maybe...better check again" Looked like someone dug it a few years ago and thought the same thing after some scrubbing, maybe the same one you found. :lol:

I found one that was 99.87 grams...come on!!! I shoulda weighed it before I cleaned the dirt off and It'd probably give me my 100g. :D

Nice finds, maybe see ya out there sometime.

These are Franconia pieces, correct? (If I'm asking a stupid question, bear with me. I have never hunted G.B. or Franconia and have yet to find my first 'right', so I can't identify either strewnfield's pieces from pictures)

I wish I had a bigger throwdown for G.B. My current Gold Basin in my collection is a .5g slice. I don't even have a Franconia throwdown to test my detector. Hopefully whoever decides to hunt with me will be able to bring down a piece of each so I can see what my detector reads them as/at.

No no. I won't be down to AZ until around April. I am still stuck at Fort Bragg awaiting discharge. Once I am out, I am moving back to Fort Wayne, Indiana, and will plan my trip from there. It is almost guaranteed that I will leave to head down in April, and will give exact dates once it gets a bit closer.

Very nice finds, wherever they came from.

I'm thinking Gold Basin, they don't look like the Franconia ones I've seen.
