Graham and List,

Thank you for some encouragement. Yes...it is the even diameter of the raised rim and the fact that there are definitely two concentric rings.

I plan to make a day collection trip to the site within ten days. If any geologically experienced parties are interested in joining me, please contact off list. There would be the opportunity to hunt meteorites on good ground on the way there and back. The suspect site is just under three hours from Las Vegas, Nevada. Figure a 12 to 14 hour day.

>Hi Count,
>Looks to me like you could be on to something there. When you look at it in 3d elevation and spin around it in google earth it seems to have a raised rim and possibly even a double ring structure from further out. Perhaps worth collecting some rocks and have someone look for shocked quartz.
