Discussions About Meteorite Collecting on BLM Land

Friday, May 7, 2010 2:47 AM

Given the recent discussion about it, I did a Google
Search for discussions, outside of the meteorite list.
I should note, that the links, which posted below,
are what I found, and in no way represent my
position on this topic. In plain English, if a person
disagrees or dislikes what is posted on a web page,
they should either complain to, email, or argue with
the specific author of a post / web page and not me.

A couple of interesting PDF files are:

1. Mining Claim Procedures for Nevada Prospectors
and Miners by Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology
http://www.nbmg.unr.edu/dox/sp6.pdf


" Meteorites: not locatable and the collection of large
or otherwise scientifically interesting specimens comes
under the Antiquities Act (16 USC 432; People of the
State of California ex rel. Younger v. Mead, 618 F.2d 618
[1980])."

2. Archaeological Resources Protection Act of 1979

Finally, I noted that the meteorite mailing list posts
are getting reposted automatically to other web
pages. One of them is at:

and another is at:
