YouTube Gold Basin Project

This November 2020 is the 25th anniversary of the discovery of the Gold Basin strewn field. I doubt that anything will be organized with the virus still around but Jim Kriegh will be in many thoughts around the world.  Below is the YouTube with some photos which will further explain this Gold Basin story. A meteorite hunter friend put my complete photo album on You Tube under Gold Basin Project which you can see below. We had NO idea this would turn out to be such a big deal, as we had no knowledge of the huge meteorite world that awaited us – so I am very happy that for some reason I took lots of photos. If you see the album you will note that the 3 of us plus Jim’s wonderful dog Kristy were all who are pictured in the first part, except for our U of A meteoriticist Dr. David Kring who came up three times to see what and how we were doing. Later in the photos you can see that after Feb. 1998 when it was announced to the public many wanted to join us and learn how to hunt there which was great fun. Toward the end of my album, there are some of Tucson Gem and Mineral Show festivities and also a few hunting trips .
