>The archives will show that I posted my first Cat Mountain 001
pictures to Gary, Adam, Greg and others asking for help in ID before
this broad ever came to town.
>Last month, some may recall that I sent out photos depicting a
suspicious looking 108 gram find made 3/23/11 and asking for opinions.
The general consensus was terrestrial and probably slag. I agreed
initially with my respected and more >experienced colleagues, but
curiosity over traits that could be seen only by having the specimen in
hand overcame my cheapness and I sent 22+ grams off to be classified.
Could someone help me with this, I can't find any post with pictures
about this on the list!. I must have over looked it or something.

Hi Rob, Mike and ListRight away you can tell that the this piece is
probably a meteorite..although methinks it ain't an iron...by the
experienced guys who are commenting on this post. So, if you fellows
will let me...I'll take a crack at buying it and see if my luck is
still holding up since last weekend. I say luck as I'm getting ready to
make another announcement of an even larger find of Cat Mountain then
the one I got 3/23/11...initial analysis looks good. A 170 gram
individual and some questionable smaller pieces. You fellows are
missing out by not getting down to Snyder Hill in Tucson. Only one
hunter there last weekend. Lonely.And no....as was inferred by Sonny in
a recent post...these weren't bought from some itinerant gypsy woman
come to Vegas selling rare meteorites. The archives will show that I
posted my first Cat Mountain 001 pictures to Gary, Adam, Greg and
others asking for help in ID before this broad ever came to town.Best
to all and ain't this fun! Count DeiroIMCA 3536 -----Original
