    It's called the Antiquities Law. Anything over 50 years is an "antiquity" and cannot be removed. Rocks and minerals are not antiquities but could be owned or claimed.
    If you do find something of value DONT TELL ANYBODY. I don't advocate taking stuff, but if you do, keep your mouth shut. Google Antiquities Law for more info.

    Default OK Rocky, how many....

    ... Coors will it take to allow me to tag along on you next gold finding adventure?

    At least the price of Coors (and I hope metal detectors) hasn't gone through the roof like gold, gas, milk and bread.

    Did you find that stuff with a metal detector? And what part of Colorado did you say you were in? And where do you bank?

    Yep... a couple of days ago, about Shafter, Texas. Not as interesting as Mogollon, but maybe worth the stop on your way out west.

    Tuutuu - I actually meant Muhamed. Seems he writes to me regularly now! I must be popular.

    .. How many Coors will it take to allow me to tag along on you next gold finding adventure?
    Can you say " How many Brewerys"

    At least the price of Coors (and I hope metal detectors) hasn't gone through the roof like gold, gas, milk and bread.
