  8. The main detectors on display was Minelab, Garrett. Makro/Nokta and XP Deus. If you’re wondering about White’s I too was doing the same. One of the dealers always had a big line of White’s detectors but today it was all Minelab.. I may have missed it but I didn’t even a banner. Garrett at this show is always has a large display of their line of detectors. Makro/Nokta had a good showing of their detectors from more than one dealer. Two of their detectors was put up for a drawing tomorrow. I did see lots of old White’s. Garrett and Fisher from years past . Some of the White’s detectors I had used too but was history now. Minelab and Makro/Nokta have more going for them than some others . The sad part it shows in so many ways some may be falling bye the wayside. Chuck
  9. Does anyone know if the remaining gold Shows are being postponed due to this coronavirus stuff? I heard from Ray Mills that one of the shows was going to be postponed. I can't get ahold of anyone at the GPAA. Especially Kevin Highland.

  11. Spent a couple off hours looking at a bunch of gold and tools for prospecting.
  12. Was totally awesome. Nearly 2,000 attendees on Saturday, and they were in a buying mood. Maybe the current price of gold helped spur sales?. I totally sold out of Goldmaster 24k's by 2pm Saturday, and had to begin taking orders. It was great chatting with our esteemed colleague, Chris Ralph. I was plessed to see his dad looking so healthy. Also had a chance to spend some time with "Broken Arrow," you Southern California gold guys (and movie buffs) know whom I'm talking about. He's looking good. And Pete Pedersen was there, too, looking good for a 92 year old. Looking forward to seeing some of you at Phoenix. Drop by my booth, will also have GMX's available. HH Jim

  14. My thinking to have a really great gold show you need to be in gold country to start with. It’s a long drive for me from San Antonio to Phoenix but I’m going to do my best to make it. It’s just a more exciting time had there than others I’ve made . Chris do you think maybe you will be there and Steve too ? I was there once before and had the pleasure of meeting you both and hope to get that opportunity again. Chuck

  16. Recently the GPAA has had six shows per year, four in the US West in the Spring and two in the US East in Autumn. This year they are changing that pattern, with eleven shows all in the first five months of 2020. I haven't read their intentions but I'm sure Kevin Hoagland and crew will be explaining the strategy in their publications. I've gotta think it's good for everyone involved. I've only attended two so far but with 11 on the calendar I'll be disappointed if I can't find a way to make my third this year. Open to the public for a nominal fee ($5 ahead of time and $10 at the door).

  19. I get an email from the UCLA Meteorite Collection which is on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles. I've attended a number of their lectures in a small lecture room which is usually attended by less than 50 people. You have the ability to ask lots of questions and see the meteorites on display in the gallery. The November lecture and link to the website is here: https://meteorites.ucla.edu/events/ The January lecture is going to be of importance because they will be discussing one of the largest stony meteorites ever found. Here is the preview: Advance notice of the next lecture Title: "A coming out party for a large stony meteorite" Lecturers: Dr. Peter Utas, a physician meteorite collector, and Dr. Alan Rubin of UCLA When: 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, 26 January 2020 Large iron meteorites are common, big stones are rare. Our atmosphere presents a formidable barrier to large rocks, efficiently transforming boulders into pebbles. But a few survive the fiery plunge. Peter reviews the roster of these great intruders, with a short description of several, and introduces a rare survivor, NWA XXXX, the 15th largest surviving stone. Discovered five years ago, in Mali or Mauritania, this flight-marked 205-kilogram specimen was largely buried, the soil-line still clearly visible. Rubin describes the analysis and classification of chondritic stones; naked eye examination of hand specimens gives important clues, but quantitative techniques are needed to avoid being misled. Hand samples of chondrites will be available for examination by attendees. Admission Free and open to the public.
