Hi All, As most know I don't like to advertise at the main forums so I have added this forum where you can see updates, sales, specials, etc that are available at my store. So do not enter this forum if ads offend ya...
This section is a little different and the place to post prospecting questions, birthdays, and talk not directly related to other sections of the forum, but still related to gold prospecting. No Political or religious posts will be allowed please and will be deleted by staff
So, a little over a dozen of those critters in the world is pretty rare then, compared to the thousands in some of the other groups.
Maybe the Peeples Valley Historical Society would have some record of it. I will check when in the area next , and maybe bring my beeper that's gathering dust.
I believe Clays map is in the U.S. only, the groups your looking at are worldwide..... The meteoritical Bulletin Database (Metbul) has a bunch of bogus coords, as when something is found and classified, you can submit any coords you want.
Looking at the Meteoritical Bulletin Database @ the above link , it states, "15 records found for meteorites with types that are exactly "Iron, IVB" " Just a shot in the dark- this type is exceedingly rare?
But then I looked at the groups here and noticed if all the metorites were added up, it's not all that many. I would think there have been more than that ,found and cataloged. I did a quick, rough addition and came up with aprox 20000 space rocks in the database.
What am I missing ( besides an Iron IVB in my collection)?
Oh wait, maybe it's just what the Museum of Nat History (London) has in its collection?
