A friend of mine forwarded me this link that states: "According to Slovak
laws, meteorites belong to the state. Collecting meteorites is allowed only
to state or academic institutions from Slovak Republic."

Dear List:

I am a little surprised that there has been little discussion regarding
Slovakia's new fall. It is the country's first recovery of a witnessed fall
in over a century and appears to be at least a medium sized fall with
hundreds of stones still to be recovered. Are any of our European friends
hunting this strewnfield? What are Slovakia's laws regarding ownership,
exportation, etc.? Surely I am not the only one interested in this very
important fall. I would love to hear from our friends in Eastern Europe or
those on the ground.

Best regards,

Mike Bandli
