Meteorite Men

Recommended Posts

Some of you on this forum may never have seen any or all of the episodes of The Meteorite Men.  I encourage you to go online and find the episodes and watch as many of them as you can find.

This episode is about finding huge meteorites in Kansas.  I remember watching it on TV the first time and a couple of times in repeat while they were still showing them a few years back.

I remembered this episode because of a sled the boys built and drug across the ground to find some very valuable finds.  I did not know them when they were putting together these shows but I have since met them in Tucson and been with many meteorite hunters (some of you are here)!

I like this one because it shows some information about ALL meteorite strewn fields and some of the technology they used and still use to find meteorites.  I'm sure they have some of the most recent Minelabs like I do which finds meteorites with ease if they are there.

Before my days in metal detecting I had the pleasure of working on this TV show. Really cool, and actually sparked my interest in the hobby.

I've never hunted meteorites - maybe someday I will find one by accident. Guess I will have to "dig it all" to make that happen!

Yes, T, you will.  And also have to find many wrongs unless you go to a known strewn field to decrease the wrong ratio...

Mitchel, I could not stand it any more. After watching the Meteorite Men - Mohave Desert and reading about Lunk's recent finds, I drove to Lake Havasu tonight and will search the Franconia area (i.e. Yucca Dense Collection Area) for a few days. You, Steve H., Lunk and Fred have inspired me. Thank you guys!

Not sure. I did watch the episodes where they were hunting in Sweden. Metal detectors are strictly not allowed to use there. No explanation was given why some men acting like crazy maniacs are allowed to. Typical "entertainment" junk. The more the main characters act like stupid monkeys, the more entertainment supposedly.

      The TV just said Bering Sea Gold coming in September 17th if I heard correct on the date . I look to see what day that landed on and shows Tuesday. That can’t be correct because it’s always on Friday.
       Get back later when are If I hear it again.

      Very true Reg, very few 'young'uns' are having a go....but a certain TV show is helping to a small degree I suspect. But from what Ive seen, the current 'instant gratification' generation doesnt have the patience or fortitude to spend time in the bush for more than half an hour...

      I recognize these guys from a cancelled show about searching for gold in Greenland (was it Ice Cold Gold?).  You never know about these and you don't want to get your hopes up, but I'm going to check it out.

      Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - 10:15 A+E Networks® UK today announced the commission of a brand new series, River Hunters, from Hello Halo Productions for flagship channel HISTORY®.
      The 8x60’ series pairs US YouTube sensation Beau Ouimette, a river detectorist with over 30 years’ experience, with presenter and keen swimmer Rick Edwards, as they search the UK’s waterways for archaeological finds. 
      River Hunters will see Rick and river-searching expert Beau, visit some of the most historically significant sites across Britain: covering iconic events and battles including Roman Briton, the Wars of the Roses, the Reformation and the English Civil War. Their searches of these unexplored rivers and waterways unearth treasures from the past which reveal how our various ancestors used to live.
      As the artefacts surface from under layers of silt and rocks, the duo will meet with local archaeologists and historians to unearth the stories and people behind the finds.  Spanning each river’s layered past, the new series will offer a fresh perspective and even redefine our history as we know it.
      Using state-of-the-art technology, archive maps and contemporaneous accounts from the period, Beau and Rick perform the first underwater archeological digs in some of the most exciting and iconic historical sites in Britain, often in dangerous and fast-flowing water.  
      River Hunters was commissioned by Dan Korn, VP of Programming for A+E Networks UK. Diana Carter, Commissioning Editor for A+E Networks UK, will executive produce the series for HISTORY.
      Dan Korn said:  By delving into Britain’s unexplored waterways, this series offers a unique glimpse into the passages of history which shaped our Island Nation and the ways of life of the various invaders and occupiers down the centuries. Some of the artefacts are truly breathtaking and shed new light on the richness of British history, and Beau and Rick’s blossoming partnership over the course of the series is a delight to behold.
      Rick Edwards commented: I’m delighted that we’re able to put to bed the idea that it's just shopping trolleys and old bikes in the UK's rivers - we found some truly extraordinary artefacts, bringing whole new perspectives to the stories from our rich past. I also got very cold.
      Wendy Rattray, Managing Director of Hello Halo, developed the series with Head of Development Natalie Hill, who is also Executive Producer, with Julie Grant as Series Producer.
      Natalie Hill said: With rivers largely unexplored in the UK, but integral to our rich past, this is a unique opportunity to find treasures long forgotten and untouched – from discarded and lost items, to offerings to gods -  each river will tell a tale never seen before.
      The new series will air on HISTORY in the UK in 2019. HISTORY is available on Sky, Virgin, BT and TalkTalk.
