I think I’ve found my first Meteorite?

Recommended Posts

Thanks 

if Ray is still there I don’t think he would want a third just to look at it.

if you want it classified with a name and all that tech stuff...you may need to give the coordinates...

Billpeters May then become a good resource ...it should be some type of Ordinary Chrondrite....a very common type. Meteorite are not always worth a fortune. Having a classification will give it more value.

 I was at the WA/ NT side of Oz.

please ask Ray to see it if you go there.

Thanks Fred

 And yes I have been in contact with Ray! He said they would need to know exact location but not straight away.

This got my attn this morning!! So couldn’t drive past it without checking it out! It’s a rock out on its own on the black soil plain. 

But sadly not what I wanted

Looks like that is a huge mud trap when it rains.

Most of Oz is having its worst drought in living memory! So as a Farmer I say bring on the rain!!

And you can drive all over this soul with a good 4wd pickup if it has water laying on it from half inch deep to 4 feet deep!   it has very high clay content and holds you up but Just look out when the water is gone and the soil is just tacky because you won’t go more than 40meters before your wheels lock solid

Years ago here in the USA, farmers plowing fields often uncovered rocks which they put into a pile someplace. On a few occasions, meteorites have been found in those rock piles. If you have anything like those down under, you might want to check them out. You'd probably need a detector with a large coil for depth unless you want to do it by hand.😉

now that’s food for thought! Will definitely use that suggestion.
