Coins, Treasure, and Relics Forum

This forum is dedicated to the hunting of coins and relics with a metal detector.


Coin and Relic Forum Rules

First off let me welcome you to the Nugget-Shooter Coin and relic Forum,

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.

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 posts are not permitted here and surly you can find other forums that host those discussions, 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 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 about metal detecting for coin and relic related subjects, and play nice.

      I know how hard it is to move away from a patch that has been good to ya. I think almost all the gold deposits N.W. Nevada at lower elevations are epithermal deposits.Your question is not a simple one to answer. but most of the gold and quartz around these suggest epithermal deposits. there are a few scattered ancient placers too. Some very high on the hillsides.
      I have been researching it for years too. Ive found coarse gold with or near smooth slugs with at first no obviously apparent rime or reason. Ive found some right next to the source vein. I know because the gold is cut ya coarse but just below the coarse nuggets soon turn into very smooth larger slugs having never traveled that far. 50 to 100 yards?
      The answer, I think I know. glaciers and/or catastrophic flooding plowing down through there. and the coarse nuggets, more recent erosion since the last glaciers..Ive seen some large nuggets come out of epithermal deposits. over 23 oz's. from claims I was working on.
