WOW I would love to find some old miniballs like that.
We instead have other "treasures" . . . nearby is where I believe the biggest gold nugget was found in North American, I may be remembering this wrong, it was a while back and I read it (the article) quickly. I have two metal detectors and like to go out exploring around. There are abandand mines all over the place here and being a former underground hard rock miner, I know better than to enter these abandand mines here. This is also a former live ammo training range for WWII pilots and Patton's army air corps really left their calling cards all over the desert floor. Spent 50 cal rounds and casings are sprinkled everywhere. There are ghost towns and several historical ruins around but I don't remove artifacts from these, I believe it's against the law to do so if I wanted to anyways. But they are fun to explore and imagine what their lives where like.
