Miner's Rights and Land Use

This forum is strictly for the discussion of land usage restriction and Miners rights issues we face and how to deal with them.


Miners Rights Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • I believe you are correct, at least as far as the silver mines in the SE of AZ go / went.. However, it seems to me if I recall correctly, which is questionable at this point in time since we're talking five years ago, that there is a native silver mine NNE of W'burg near Constellation -- Mont Carlo or something like that..? Should look it up I suppose.. Anyhow, I remember reading something about it before our last trip out, then never got there cos we burned all our time out Rich Hill way & up at the Lynx.. Dunno where you two guys found those rocks, but that area may be worth checking..? FWIW.. Swamp
    • Thanks for the scaled photo, Jonny74.  I'm pretty sure its a fossil fragment and from this scale photo, we can rule out Dino fossil.  NE Ireland is a large chunk of real estate, so, here is an interactive Ireland Geology Map that you can use to pin down the geologic formations where you found the fossil.  If you take the find to a vertebrate paleontologist at a local university, they could pin it down for sure.  Here is the link to the Geological Survey of Ireland that also has a wealth of info.  Let us know what you find out about this find as you collect more information about it.  It's a cool find!
    • The gully I'm trying to work now is at the edge of my patch. When I first found gold there the water was still where I was standing on the pics in sharing finds. About the second day I saw the last four feet of one of these snakes slide into the water. That's the big worry about working where the water has gone down. A snake this size could come charging out of the water faster than you can run even if you were looking at it. I carry a flip out knife in my right shirt pocket in case I ever need it. 
    • Thanks for that - Here is photo with a scale (coin is 20mm OD). Find location is north east Ireland.
