If you aren't doing anything in 3 hours you can attend a meteorite lecture!
Metamorphism of primitive solar system materials
Chondritic meteorites represent the most primitive material in the solar system. These chondrites originate from asteroids that did not reach temperatures high enough to melt. Although they escaped melting, some of these primitive asteroids reached temperatures high enough to induce metamorphism - recrystallization of a rock in a solid state. Unlike Earth, where metamorphism is accompanied by pressure and heat, metamorphism on asteroids is driven only by temperature. This metamorphism results in textural and geochemical changes that provide insight into the thermal and physical evolution of small bodies during the solar system's earliest formation.
Anyone up for a two weekend Vintage Metal Detector treasure hunt? It would be from one Sat thru the Weekdays and ending the following Sunday. You must dedicate yourself to using a vintage detector(s) at any location(s) of your choice. BFO, TR, IB, OR, VLF/TR type. You will post all of your finds found using the detector(s) you used. All based on the honor system. It would show folks that vintage detectors are still alive and kicking finding treasure. If there's interest. I will work up a hunt.
Date probably June or July.
Detector would have to be no newer than 1985?

The Harquahala Mountains near Salome, Arizona provided a beautiful location for Bill Southern's three-day Patreon outing for those who back his YouTube channel, Nugget Shooter Journals. This was his second Patreon outing of the year. Including Bill and Tammy about a dozen gold hunters attended.
The long weekend started on Thursday night with Bill giving an engaging talk at the Gold Fever Radio club just south of Salome on Hwy 60. The next few days most people set up their RV's and campers a short drive from the private claims we had access to. I really enjoyed the group, learned a lot and even found a couple of nuggets with my GM 1000, a 1.7 gm solid nugget and a 1.0 gm specie.
Tammy, aka Nugget Shooterette, who has her own YouTube channel also found a nugget and then made a delicious dinner for all of us on Saturday night. Fantastic.
Bill and Tammy are fun to be with and very generous with their knowledge of gold and gem prospecting. If you have not seen their channels take a look.
Ill keep sending out apps, but its likely the few spots are taken and this will be reserving your spot in the wait list Que..
We have a few Western States Prospecting Association openings available.
PM me with your email address and Ill send you information and an application.
Were a limited membership capped at 100 paid members.
Dues are a family membership for $135 a year, seniors pay $100 after the first year.
The claims are proven to hold detectable gold with locations in 3 western states CA, NV and AZ.
Like big gold?
This one came from one of our NorCal claims!
