    Re: UPDATED!!!!dug me some bottles...YESSSSSSSSSS.... or was buried for a reason????

    now thats out of the way...... maybe i can start reserching. what would these chemicals be used for? a chemist a doctor, to essay? they were found in the area of a small mining town, so if i could narrow it down i could find some history on them and the owner. any insight would be good. my theory is they used them for essaying or to find mineral contents. help if possible

    For the reasons I stated before, I think they belong to a textile printing company.

    Take lots LOTS LOTS of pictures and make a photographic display!! I don't see why you couldn't keep some of those loose toppers! (see my avatar... I give free BAD advise)


    Sorry about the rest of them... damned cool, and damned shame.

    Frankly, I think the bottles were disposed of by somebody who didn't want to deal with them either. In the old days, those chemicals would have been poured onto the ground and nobody would have thought anything about it. It's only been in the last 50 years or so that people became concerned about proper disposal. My guess is they weren't buried by the original owner because he wouldn't have bothered to bury them. I bet somebody found them somewhere, in an old house or storage building, and buried them to get rid of them without all the redtape..maybe in the last 30 years.

    You might try getting a merchant's directory for the mining town (from the historical society or the library) and look through it for photographers. Textile printing probably didn't happen in a small mining town. I'd also question the assaying possibility...not likely to use such small quantities. Are these the ingredients for nitro glycerine? Maybe the owner was a chemist who combined the compounds for blasting?

    Great looking bottles, hope you'll keep us updated on your hazardous material disposal AND your research. Good luck.

    its possible they were dumped recently but i dont think so, i found broken sodas and whiskeys and the clay essay cups as posted before, also this is where i found a previous whiskey. and also they were some old bricks laying around, which attracted me to the spot.

    You can't see the movie possibilities here? It was my tongue-in-cheek way of saying, "holy krist, you've done it now!!" Innocent treasure hunter uncovers buried chemicals. You can come up with a dozen different stories from there. I'm not a chemist but I do know silver nitrate is used in photography and.............explosives. I believe it is a mixture of silver and nitric acid. They used to recycle old photographic negatives to reclaim the silver content. Anyway, good luck with that stuff. We deal with methlab folks dumping their stuff on public land and it is very costly to dispose of. I don't know if you've mentioned where this property is or whether it's public or not. I'm very surprised the hazmat folks didn't drill you on that question. Stay safe bud

    thats what i thought yes the silver nitrate is on my dispose list, the bottle is empty but sealed shut, as for the location, it took me hours to refind it, by a miracle, and im positive i will never locate it again. its once again lost in history........

    I saw several of the same type bottles today in an antique store (empty of course) and they were going for between 65 to 100 dollars each. Good Job nice find

    May I suggest you contact a privately owned chemical co. They could and possibly should ,by law, supply you with MSDS (Material safety data sheets) and may possibly have an interest in the product inside.Also you could potentially transfer the product to other containers and label them as to match the current labels.I've had dealings with the Gov. on like matters,and I'll take good ol capitalist every time.Especially if you want progress in this lifetime.
    Truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but, in the end, there it is.

    I hope the blue one in the back middle is one you can save and clean up. I sure would like to see it close up. Very nice bottle.

    Nitric is some seriously bad stuff..............get rid of it. It is very difficult to even buy the stuff these days, and with good reason (can't mention why). In some states, it is illegal to posses it. These sound like mining chemicals.
