I was ask about using a LRL to locate meteorites. I remember some posts about this but to tell the truth I didn't pay much attenion to the posts. I know nickel was one of the minerals but I think you had to get readings from 2 other minerals. Any help with this would be appreciated. This guy lives in Kansas and it seems to be the hot spot right now....Art

The late Lee Franzen was excellent at locating meteorites with his LRLs. He also made some very good posts aboit it back in the TTHN days but unfortunately his posts are somewhere on my various backup files. If I come across them I will post his information here.

Oh, Outback!!  Grin Grin

Art,
Nickel and iron are common to most meteorites. Nickel is in it's native state and that's rarely found in terrestrial rocks. Meteorites are tricky as some are mainly stone. The best places to find them in the US are Kansas, Texas, Arizona and the Mojave desert, but they fall everywhere. We were discussing the fellow from KS finding them in the Fossils, Meteorites, Rocks & Gems section under Collector's Corner. He was pulling some type of metal detector behind a four wheeler when he found one earlier this year and ground penetrating radar for the most recent one.

You should look at the main page of this website as Christian has my old buddy, the late Lee Franzen's home page there and he used a LRL to find them. 

I've been trying to find meteorites map dowsing, but I'm a rookie. A LRL would probably be better. I don't have one. If you use a sample, you might want to try collecting tiny meteorites from roof gutters as they accumulate there over a period of time.

Their value is equivalent to gold and there's definitely an interest and market for them. Here's a web site to get you started.

Good luck! There's more meteor-wrongs than meteorites. Sue

Thanks for the assist, Steve.

The hot spot in Kansas is Brenham. They have been using a large pulse induction unit with a 10 ft coil and dragging it with a 4 wheeler. I think they had exclusive rights on 8 square miles and they're just about done.
