Title: I think I might be rich !
Post by: Ruby Silver on May 10, 2019, 11:59:45 PM
I'm rich. I'm rich, ... I think.   <-yahoo_>

If this is true what they're getting for their's, I have found, in my diggings, one that's the size of my boot and another I can't even move.  <-shock_>

Keep an eye out for them you miners, there's more than gold in them thar' hills.   <-yes_>

I never thought about it much but the variety of gravels on my claim are extensive and must have at one time come in on the glaciers from hundreds or even 1000 miles away.  So  I figure they might have had a few meteorites landed on them at one time.  <-thinking->
 
Meteorites are more rare than gold. They have a lot of iron and nickel and are usually highly magnetic and heavy. Don't hurt to be on the look out for them  and they're worth quite bit of $$.  <-yahoo_>

The ones I've got are likely ilmenite or magnetite. I'm gonna carry a pocket magnet from now on and do a first test. If they're very magnetic and heavy.I'll  move on to the next tests.  <_miner_>

Tons of info on the net:

There was one a few years ago that hit a frozen lake west of Atlin BC.  They were able to find them stuck in the ice.

Ruby,

I hope it works out for you, and you're able to get some nice cash for your meteorites.

Thanks for the link to the meteorite men, interesting viewing for sure.

All the best,

Lanny
