garimpo Posted February 5, 2007 Share Posted February 5, 2007 Well here goes, don't know anything about meteorites but have found what I think is a good possibility. A couple of years ago a guy brought one about the size of a fist and one about the size of 5 gal. bucket here by the house. They were both very heavy, we finally got the small one cut and I had the pieces checked by the Geology lab at the University of Okla. and they said they were meteorites. The buy would never say where they came from. Just last week I mentioned this to another prospector who know the region very well and he thought he knew, so we went there and here's what we found. The big one is still in the hole that somebody had started, a lot of other almost holes where I think they started and stopped. I estimate the big one to weigh better than 1/2 ton. The two smaller one here I brought home and managed to cut a piece off on of them. The smaller one (I cut it) weights 2.27 lbs. and the larger one weights 4.65 lbs. Would like some feed back please. More about these on the gold nugget forum under sharing finds, post #2131-2138-2139-2143 Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
