Hello Paul and List,

In an effort to assist you (and your father, Nicholas) in this endeavor, I've made a plaster-cast of a corner-fragment meteorite that Moni Waiblinger found on Roach Dry Lake, and have mailed it to your father. Nick will then forward it to you, if he can't get it to fit onto any of the Primm (H5) masses that he has in storage.

This has all been documented and photos can be seen in my 2013 May - Meteorite-Times Magazine article:


At some later date, I will send to you a table that lists the 102 provisionally-numbered Roach Dry Lake finds that have been reported to us (mostly compiled by Rob Matson). This will answer your question about "additional finds", because it will list the mass, date of find, and finder.

Hope this will be helpful. If it is, I will report back here, as well as, in Part 2 of my M-T article.

To all You hunters who have searched Primm Valley / Roach Dry lake:

Please help me to rebuild one of my favourite meteorite finds.
This 242g individual was found back in 1997
and was reconstructed from 3 pieces and glued back together.
It is still missing a small 8 gram wedge shaped piece that
hopefully can be reunited with the main mass???
Just want all of you who have hunted Roach D.L.
to take a look at this video and see if just
maybe you have the piece I am looking for.
It would be Incredible to COMPLETE this meteorite's saga.
If found I would be happy to substitute for a
larger Primm piece from our collection...
and some detailed info on a Nevada strewn field that has
yielded some really Amazing finds.
Let me know. thanks.

Would also be interested in the locations and mass of
additional finds regardless of matching my piece so
that I can get an idea of what we missed.
I want this attempt at unification to get out to everyone
so please forward the video to anyone you know
who has searched this location or is even slightly interested.

This just might work? I hope.
