  6. Denver Gem And Mineral Show

    Hi Joe, I and my wife know Ken O., Larry B. and John V. We showed them the location where Ken found that specimen and as you say the rest is history. Unfortunately Ken sold that specimen to quick and he could of got a lot more for it than he did. We saw John V. and his mining partner Glenn G. at the show and caught up on recent and past finds in Colorado. Lots of amazing finds are still being found if you know where to go.

  9. Denver Gem And Mineral Show

    Sorry about some the pics being out of focus and the quality. I only had my pocket camera and shooting pictures through the glass isn't easy. Wished I had taken my good camera along.

  11. The Denver Gem and Mineral Show at the Denver Mart celebrate its 50th year and the theme was Gold and Silver. There were outstanding gold, silver, telluride and meteorite specimens on display from collectors and dealers. There were over 800 dealers this year at the Denver Mart and surrounding venues. Denver is the second largest show in the United States.
  12. Gold Tellurides

    Thanks Steve and Jim Hemmingway for the additional input and information. I have had several people ask me if gold tellurides are able to be found with a metal detector and couldn't find information if that it was possible. The Colorado School of Mines has several gold telluride specimens that I could have available to me to test. I will let you know the results when time permits. Hopefully other forum members could chime in with additional information.
