The Real Deal

Recommended Posts

😎  Got out detecting yesterday for the 1st time in many moons !
Had fantastic weather all day and dug some deep ones. Caught a 149 grammer at the end of the day.
Totaled out over 200 grams 5 pieces.
Used the 7 x 14 N.F. Advantage on the 4500 with Black Widows.
My buddy nailed 4 and 2 nuggets to boot !

That's quite the cairn you've built on your scale!  😁  Are you in US or Australia?

I have the NF 7"x14" but haven't gotten into the goldfields to try it out.  (Mine is not an Advantage version, though.)  Your results have me intrigued.

I'm in N.W. Arizona. You will LOVE the 7x14, I have had mine for many years found LOTS of nuggets and meteorites with it.
If yours is "white" its an "SL"  NF (Super Lite) I owned 1 of those also and it is great.
I sold my SL to my best bud here and its been bringing him plenty of targets too.
You can run them wide open with power and get great depth while remaining quiet also.

Yes, it's white.  There is a Nugget Finder decal (with a miner holding a glistening rock in one hand and a metal detector in the other) but I don't see any 'SL' designation anywhere.  Does sound like what you describe otherwise.  Thanks for the encouragement.

Stay cool in that Arizona desert, literally and figuratively.

Nice finds, keep up the good work there. Stay cool and drink plenty of water in this heat.

      Even though this article is ~14 months old, I didn't find it on the site.  There was a short BBC video posted back then which (pretty sure) is the same expedition.  If I'm just reposting something that was previously linked then sorry....

      Made it back out to gold basin today and managed to pick up a couple more little meteorites the largest at 10.4 grams and the smaller one is 5.3 grams.


      This other stone also gave a nice signal the crystals show better in the sun, I think is a basalt with olivine?

      Some scientists now think there are the building blocks for life in meteorites.  One block is protein.

      I was bumming around Las Vegas today and wandered into the Gold and Silver pawn shop for a look around as the parking lot was open and there was no line to get in. Walking through the shop one of the display cases was filled with nature and science objects and a handful of small meteorites and two larger all iron nickel from the Argentina Campo Del Cielo meteor impact. They were asking $25 for the small ones that were between a nickel and quarter in diameter and $250 each for the large ones. I grabbed one of the large one and asked for a discount and after checking they would sell it for 20% less making it $200 I’m sure I could have bargained more but didn’t care to, the one in my hand weighed 368 grams and had some nice character so I wrapped it up and took it home.  This is a very common meteorite as they go but seemed a fair price at around 1/2 the asking price for most of the similar examples on eBay and although not a bargain I suppose, but if you are in the area and looking for one of these (in a shop) $25 for a small meteorite doesn’t seem to far out of line?
