Introduction to Meteorites
February 2015 by Mike LucasThe distribution of meteorites across the planet was, at one time, thought to be random and unpredictable.
I worked my way to a flat area along a ridge where I could see a quartz blowout. As I got within 100 feet of it, I started seeing rock that I knew to be associated with gold.
Using a snuffer bottle to pick it out of the pan, he continued his panning efforts. He continued to find more yellowish stuff, but it wasn’t shiny like he thought gold should look.
Prospectors have many reasons why they might want to break rocks. These include dividing up a specimen too large to carry.
...Judge Ochoa ordered the parties to participate in mandatory settlement hearings starting June 24, 2014.
This article is intended to try to help someone who is breaking into gold detecting and using a pulse induction (PI) detector.
Some ask if a prospector can collect an entire ounce in a day. It is possible; I’ve done it before.
I am going to break bedrock down a bit and explain my view of the varying scenarios I come across in the field.
