Most fines and fields in the west.

I did a bulletin search on classified meteorites with just a few names.

I used Text and Contains for the search. This is the result...

Verish = 7

Clary = 4

Libszowski = 2 (one is actually mine he found and gave to me so I had it classified for him)

Wooddell = 10 (one AZ cold find pending)

Parker = 1 (I know he has over 2 approved???)

Gessler = 7

The results are a little scewed as it was just a name search. Verish has many classified specimens but they are not approved. I know there are others that have several but names are fleeting!

Something's not right with that search, Jim. Bob V. has many, many, many more than 7 in the Bul. He has more than 7 in just Coyote Dry Lake!


Here you go, a more accurate search:

142 listings attributed to Bob V.: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/MetBullFindlab.php?abbrev=Verish

8 for Clary (he has many unpublished cold finds): http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/MetBullFindlab.php?abbrev=Clary

11 for Woodell: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/MetBullFindlab.php?abbrev=Wooddell

57 for Gessler: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/MetBullFindlab.php?abbrev=Gessler

6 for Parker: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/MetBullFindlab.php?abbrev=Parker

30 for Utas: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/MetBullFindlab.php?abbrev=Utas

21 for LaBarbera: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/MetBullFindlab.php?abbrev=LaBarbera

16 for Matson: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/MetBullFindlab.php?abbrev=Matson

I know Mike, that's why I clarified how I did the search. What did you use?

Keep in mind Provisionals and other non-published finds are pretty much pointless...to me anyways.

Yes, but they don't mean anything to anyone but themselves!

Theres some hunters that have a lot of cold finds not published also.

I think what mobilehomes is getting to is who do you think has the most cold finds only!! From the west coast. I personally think it would be a toss up between Clary and Verish, with Ward riding their ass.

None of the meteorites in the searches I linked are provisional, they are all approved, official meteorites. I don't remember how I initiated those searches, but if you replace the last name in the link with anyone's last name you can repeat the search that way.

Thanks guys for all the work. I thought I would have time to get some names on the meteorites found but found myself really busy. Dave I changed the info for US wide. Will try to help with this when I can. I can't think of Bob's last name from Tucson but thought he has quite a few himself.

Hey... excuse me for butting in; but to add a sidebar: "Low Iron aerolites and

micrometeorites can be found any where throughout the world but seem to have

a corridor. Since they are not considered rare or of value the Greenies have

not (yet) made them a no-no; but we must be careful so they will make it

illegal to pick it up or on another just established national park.

"Just referring to areolites; the stony chondrites and achondrites make up about

90% by number of all of iron and stony iron falls and are not (yet) interpreted

to be of scientific interest. Unfortunately the aeorlites (stony) meteorites

are easily overlooked as a common terrestrial igneous rock and successfully

hide amongst the meteorite-wrongs. However the stones resemble ultramafic earth

rock and are easily overlooked... But with the current drought conditions the

ubiquitous playa lakes in the Basin Range Provence are now drying out and most

of them, if not all of them are good areas to just walk on and eyeball for

space rocks.

"Being first is everything. However if they are just a inch or so out of sight

they will need to be found by detecting or using a strong neodymium magnet...

And while we are in a drought and the wet lakes are now drying out; they

may not be (yet) dry enough to support a vehicle... They are flat areas and

extend for miles and are barren of vegetation and characterized by internal

drainage with no outlet and so the silt and clays have a high alkali salt

content... Gosh darn it, if'n I was still able I would again be checking the

ones that are barren of trash as they have not yet been heavily searched.

Sorry to butt in. You all know what I have said above... End of my sidebar..."
