Meteorite Hunting and Collecting Forum

For Discussion related to hunting and collecting of Meteorites With or Without a Metal Detector


Meteorite 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.

Well the rules here are a bit different as I welcome meteorites for sale you have collected or found yourself, but no store or dealer ads at any time and this includes eBay links! Naturally the main reason for this forum is education, but collecting is also a big part of this subject. So No crappy or degrading posts or they will be deleted, other than that post away!

    • Nice, nice gold.  Keep a piece this time.... grin. Was it really the coil that found this gold?  Were they a foot or two deep?

    • Dear all,   my name is Horst and I am a German prospector. Though our Gold is VERY fine about 1/10000 of a gramm per piece I am having fun prospecting. Years ago I have been to CA and AZ but with just a little knowledge and tools. By that time the internet was not the same as is today and you had to find people to teach you.  I found some nice color but it could have been much more. This year my wife and I got real lucky to book tickets to San Francisco for very little bucks and we'll be going to northern CA , YUBA river and tributaries. I will sure bring my new Whites GMT and crevicing tools. I would be very happy to get some good advice where to go what to do as my time is VERY limited and I might not be able to come back the next 10 years or so. Gold 2 you Horst
    • Anyway here is another mystery solved. In case your wondering where do all those stinking boot tacks come from? When I was down in mexico I'm looking at and studying the old drywasher remnants. The course screens on top of their drywashers where made of flat tin that has been punched with what appeared to be with pick points to make the holes? some round, some square but no doubt punched not drilled.
      about 3/8-1/2" holes. this made sense based on the nuggets we were finding in there drywash piles, and the cloth on the bottom bellows and the tin on top of these old drywashers we found was attached with boot tacks.
