I have not seen any of this material first-hand but I was thinking the same thing when I saw Bob Verish's images.? Perhaps it rained in Northern Nevada or many times fresh falls take on a brownish hue.? If the miner's stone was found within a few hours of the fall, then I would think the stones have a natural brownish hue or it could be the white balance is off on the digital camera.

I had the exact same impression.? This one looks like a somewhat weathered NWA.
Could be the lighting.
But, Adam Hupe reported multiple finds so far so this could be legit.

The reason is for mine safety regulations.The project supervisor was very nice and explained the biggest concern is safety.If anything was to happen on the mining clam, the site would be shut down.
