First cold find


Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone. I am happy to report my first cold find. It is 20.1 grams and oriented, with a few small flow lines in spots and a bit of roll-over and secondary crust on the back side. It is being thin sectioned and then off to be classified by Dr. Rubin at UCLA. I will be happy to share the exact find location after I submit to the NomCom, it was found generally in the Mojave here in so. Cal.


My classification guess is an H3.8 S0 W1. : )

That's Awesome Mike congradulations. Dr Rubin classified mine, and is usually pretty quick on doing it. Would love to hear the details when you can.

Mike,

Really good find there! It takes a good eye and a real effort to 'find something where no one has done it before!'

I hope you find lots more.

Thanks, everyone.

Fred, I do hunt dry lakes, but this one wasn't a dry lake find. No detector, caught this one by eye.

John, cold find as Fred described.

I'll be sure to post up when the science is done.

Mike,

Glad to see you post your little beauty. Have you kinda reached the conclusion that he was the "Lone Ranger" out there...LOL??? Congrats on the classification! I fell in love with it the minute you put it in my hand. Such a neat piece. Keep up the good work!
