    This is exactly what I'm saying hillbilly prince. Setting aside the thinking that you would be killed, if a giant rock fell from space that was made up of platinum or gold or whatever precious metal,and the government knew about it, would they let you keep it since it fell on your property. Trdking says they would take it...maybe hes right, I dont know which is why I thought it was a good one to discuss.

    Our very own gubermint has already made a law stating that "anything" that has fallen from the sky belongs to the federal Gubermint ! You can thank our so-called "representatives" for that one ! The big "O" has done it again !!!

    I do not believe that NASA has anything to do with government ownership? Am I wrong? If a mass amount of gold or precious fell from the sky you would have a fight on your hands. Just saying

    From what I understand the gold locked in these asteroids aren't solid chunks of raw metal that you can just dig out of the ground. It's mixed in heavily with other metals in an ore that you can't even see the gold in, like those deep earth mines in South Africa that produce lots of gold. There's gold in the ore, but you need a huge infrastructure and lots of cyanide to extract it. Not profitable at all. I think the easiest way to find gold would be to just go to Mars IMO. Look at the massive dried up riverbeds there, billions of years of placer deposits along there that you could just scoop up with a metal detector.

    From this article:
    "The U.S. courts have ruled that a meteorite becomes part of the land where it arrives through 'natural cause' and hence the property of the landowner," the e-mail said."
    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/virgini...ership-debate/

    Another interesting story.
    Who Owns a Meteor?
    "Actually, the history of the meteorite goes back to a time even before Hughes' discovery, when the Clackamas Indians named it "tomonowos,"" or '"visitor from the moon."' They believed the meteorite was sacred, and before going to war, Indian braves dipped their spears in rain- water that had collected in its craters."
    You may forget but let me tell you this: someone in some future time will think of us-Sappho

    What if the property owner does not hold the mineral rights?

    Mineral rights do not apply. To minerals that fell from the sky after you own the property.
